Secluded Jungle Retreat Home w/ Private Pool, and gorgeous views from every room

The Costa Rican getaway of your dreams awaits at this incredible tropical jungle home. Nestled in a verdant mountain range overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this luxurious rental opens right up into the tops of the trees, providing spectacular views from every point in the house. Whether you're soaking in the outdoor pool, fixing a mojito in the kitchen, or relaxing on the wraparound deck, you'll be greeted by ocean breezes and the pristine natural beauty of Central America at every turn.

This home is tucked away a short drive from the picturesque village of Uvita and overlooks the hills and beaches of Marino Ballena National Park. The park is home to almost 10 miles of pristine beaches, including the world-famous Whale's Tail, an enormous sandbar that stretches out into the water and surfaces in the shape of a whale's tail at low tide. (You might actually spot some real whales too!) You'll also find great snorkeling and surfing, and the jungle around the home is filled with picture-perfect waterfalls.

This first-class home allows you to experience the best of Costa Rica in comfort and privacy. Designed with an open floor plan, the full kitchen and living room are lined with windows with panoramic views of the jungle and ocean, which fold open accordion-style to allow the breeze and sounds of the jungle to waft through. Outside, a well-furnished wraparound deck juts out into the forest canopy. Bask in the views and the warm air as you relax in the private pool, suntan on the lounge chairs, or sip your morning coffee at the handcrafted wooden table. There's even an outdoor bathtub made from carved rock for a truly luxurious soak. Combining elegance, comfort, and an unbeatable location, this spectacular rental is guaranteed to take your Costa Rican vacation to another level. Book your reservation today!

stunning home with great privacy. you definitely need a 4x4 vehicle or be willing to plan your trip according to the weather. it rains regularly and the road gets really slippery. all in all, best place i've ever stayed in.
Marty J. May 2021
This is an AMAZING home! Our 5-person group (2 kids, ages 4 and 8) loved this home nestled in the rainforest. We heard howler monkeys every morning and saw dozens of bird species including toucans. But you definitely need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to reach the house (we actually did it without, but that is ill-advised). A few other things to know about the house: the house could have been better marked along the roadway (as other Vacasa homes were), no hot water for showers (only hot water in the kitchen). The stovetop doesn't work that well and there wasn't any dish soap left (only pods for running the dishwasher). Yet all of these issues are minor in comparison to this fantastic home in a fantastic location. We definitely would stay here again.

We love Uvita and Casa Vista Verde... our second visit and stay... and, well... we'll be back. The house and setting are perfect for a get away from it all vacation... went to sleep to the sounds of the jungle every night and woke up the same way. If you love nature and wildlife but also enjoy modern amenities this is the place for you.

The house and view are beautiful!!!!

excelente lugar

Esta casa es excelente para las personas que les gusta estar en un lugar privado y es perfecto para los amantes de las aves. Se puede pajarear desde la casa y en sus alrededores.

me gusto la casa y su comodidad.
Juan Vicente V. Sep 2020
Beautiful house in the middle of the jungle. We were able to enjoy a lot of kind of birds and monkeys. The house is well equipped however there are a few things damage like the wood in the main deck and near to the pool. Internet is ok, it has TV but no cable. There is a micro-weather in this location, so it might be cloudy in the house but if you drive to Uvita beach it will probably be no ok.

Visité esta casa a principios de agosto, con un grupo de amigos (5 personas). Es una casa muy muy bonita con muchos detalles y Karina siempre me contestó mis dudas rápido. ¡El cuarto principal es precioso y las áreas sociales son muuuy cómodas!
Cosas que creo que las personas deberían saber. No son cosas negativas, pero es importante saberlo:
1. La casa está en medio de la selva, lo cual es delicioso para descansar. Sin embargo no es raro encontrarse uno que otro insecto visitando.
2. La piscina es pequeña. Es muy cómoda, no es muy honda entonces se disfruta, sin embargo no caben dos camas flotantes.
3. Se necesita 4x4. Ya lo han dicho otras personas y lo reafirmo.

¡La recomendaría sin dudarlo!

Todo me Encanto, la vista, el espacio, la tina, la decoración de la casa, el espacio de cada parte. Completamenta satisfecha y con mucho gusto volvería. A pesar que llovio mucho la pasamos muy bien.
Enyi C. Jun 2020
MI familia y yo visitamos este casa 2 veces en menos de 1 mes, la verdad nos enamoro cada rincón de ella. Es un lugar bastante alejado entonces te permite tener mucha privacidad. El camino si es algo complicado, mas que fuimos en época de lluvia, por eso es importante tomar las medidas necesarias.
Gisella F. Jun 2020
La distribución de la casa, los detalles de cada pieza, cuando piensas en casa equipada, esto realmente es lo que buscas. Privacidad y una gran vista. Realmente la pasamos super bien. No es tan complicado llegar como parece.
Marco Vinicio V. Jun 2020
Excelente vista, es una fusión de montaña y playa increíble, el lugar es muy cómodo y cuenta con todas las comodidades que se requieren, excelente atención de Karina y Leo.
Jonathan C. Jun 2020
El lugar perfecto para las vacaciones con amigos, 10 de 10 en ubicación, amenidades, vista, estado general de la casa. Esperamos regresar pronto
Cale G. Mar 2020
One of the best areas in all of Costa Rica to stay. The house was spectacular
William L. Mar 2020
the house was set perfectly with jungle views on 3 sides with an ocean view on the fourth. The wrap around deck allowed ever changing views of birds and mammals if Costa Rica. Toucans, Parrots, Minkeys, Coati's. All in its natural habitat for your viewing pleasure
Donald G. Feb 2020
Fantastic villa. Would strongly recommend staying there.
Jan K. Feb 2020
Amazing house, breathtaking views, Amazing location.
Amazing and very helpful property manager
malobika m. Dec 2019
The home is more beautiful than the photos depict. Though it remains privately nestled in a jungle setting, it sits close to many restaurants, supermarkets and the beach. It's quite magical.
Vince T. Dec 2019
Just a great place to stay Fantastic living space
James W. Nov 2019
Casa Vista Verde met all of our expectations. Beautiful home with a great location and 270 degree views of both the ocean and mountains. We had a family of howler monkeys spend a couple of days in one of the trees right next to the house, so entertaining! Everything was like new including appliances and cookware. Fun house, private and a great choice when visiting Uvita.
samuel s. Nov 2019
Its an amazing home in an incredible setting. Bird watchers paradise! We spent hours sitting on the deck(s) and enjoying the views, landscaping, and animals.
Mauricio A. Sep 2019
Karina y Diego nos atendieron muy bien. La casa es muy bonita y cómoda.
Brendan C. Sep 2019
This place is great for just relaxing and enjoying the edge of the jungle. We enjoyed coffee in the morning with the Toucan birds and even saw the occasional monkey from a distance. No sounds except the jungle. The house is a modern build with everything you need from wifi/tv to Propane BBQ Grill.
Definitely worth the drive up the mountain, after a few trips the drive up/down to the house is a piece of cake and it's 10 minutes from the house to the beach or town.
Hope to come back for sure.
Leslie F. Jul 2019
We absolutely loved this house! It was a retreat for our family of 5. Hours of enjoying the outdoor living spaces, the pool, hikes, walks, night hikes, looking for animals was fantastic. The beds were super comfortable, we cooked amazing dinners from the fish we caught, the grill was a fantastic perk we used every night. We are planning on coming back!
Faith B. Jun 2019
This house was just gorgeous. Everything we needed was there, it was very modern and clean. The road can be a little rough, but the payoff is a very private paradise with beautiful views from each side. We had toucans everywhere, a family of monkeys in a tree across the street, and parrots flying overhead. We wish we could live there.
Mike R. Jun 2019
We loved the house layout and how beautifully it fits into the surrounding rainforest providing 365-degree views. Amazing wildlife to watch from various deck locations, and the luxurious house was built for enjoyment. Unbelievable and hard to leave!!
Alba R. Jun 2019
Loved staying at Casa Vista Verde!
We saw wildlife toucans, hummingbirds, and heard the howler monkeys. The house was clean and beautiful kids loved the time at the pool. Husband loved the grill.
Beverly W. May 2019
Beautiful home in a stunning private location. Would not hesitate to stay again, hopefully soon!
Katelyn P. Mar 2019
We had a fantastic stay at Casa Vista Verde. We had 3 nights here and we didn’t want to leave. The views, pool and location were great. We watched Toucans at sunset on the deck. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Could not fault anything with this property and highly recommended.
Nigel B. Mar 2019
peace and quiet well furnished
Julie W. Jan 2019
This place.. these beautiful views from every place in the house.. it’s notbing less than stunning. We enjoyed our stay so much. It was a lil piece of serenity in the middle of the jungle❤️
Kimberlee F. Jan 2019
Amazing Home and great views!
Christopher H. Oct 2018
Casa Vista Verde is just that - a very beautiful view of the jungle! We really enjoyed sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs watching the toucans fly by with the ocean off in the distance.
Very clean house, nice comfortable beds and linens. Fully stocked and functional kitchen.
We also loved to open the sliding doors to allow the cool breeze come through the house.
Quiet, and tranquil, a very enjoyable stay.
Donald T. Aug 2018
The house and location are fantastic. I saw my first Toucan in the first 5 minutes of the first day, and it never stop from there. The road is a challenge, I definitly recommand a 4x4 and to arrive during the day for the first time, but after that it is just wonderful.
Lindsay V. Jul 2018
Casa Vista Verde is such an experience! From the decks on one side of the home you can sit in leather rockers and view the sea from above the treetops, and from the decks on the other side look out over the verdant valley of the jungle canopy. We grilled on the deck at night and there are multiple grocery stores within a ten minute drive making it easy to grab food for cooking. There are beautiful resident creatures here including toucans, blue morpho butterflies and geckos. At night in the rainy season the glass windows of the home showcase gorgeous tropical lightning storms that you view as though from within the clouds, and the western deck is perfection for watching the sunset. The decor of the home is artfully chosen with gorgeous, colorful Boruca masks on the walls in the hallway, and artisan monkey pod wood bed frames and tables. The mattresses were extremely comfortable, and the master bedroom so peaceful and relaxing you never want to leave. Just open the glass doors and close the screens to listen to the sounds of the thunder and the jungle as you sleep. The beach was much closer than expected, and there are at least 10 beaches within short reach of the home. Playa Ventanas was our favorite with a pipa fria on the cliffs. If you don't feel like cooking at the home there is a great local restaurant called Maracuya just five minutes drive away - they sell fresh squeezed juices and have gluten free and vegan options alongside traditional Costa Rican casados should you have dietary considerations. That said, there are also many other restaurants within close driving distance and if you are looking for a view Parcela is a great option with a low-key vibe and ocean views on both sides. The pool of the home is larger than expected and fantastic for a cool down on a hot day. You can spend hours just cooling off in the pool and then sitting out on the deck watching the jungle life and listening to its sounds all around you. The true pura vida, enjoying this amazing place and all of the natural beauty it offers. When it is time for adventure, there is no lack of it around either. Jungle ATV tours operates just down the road, and will take you far into the jungle through water crossings, up stone cliffs, and to a tiny coffee finca. Waterfalls are within easy reach and the natural waterslide at the Uvita Waterfall is a blast. Henry, the local manager of the home, is so helpful and very responsive should you need any assistance or suggestions. As well, the home was very clean upon arrival and housekeeping and the local manager have done a wonderful job keeping the home beautiful. Thank you for our stay! We truly hope to return.
Traci F. Jul 2018
We absolutely loved Casa Vista Verde... it lived up to all of our expectations and then some. The home is as beautiful as the pictures but they don't do justice to the level of peacefulness and beauty of the place. Whether it be the views, grounds, surrounding jungle... everything was outstanding. We enjoyed daily flights and visits from toucans and parrots along with a ton of other birds... we even had visits from howler monkeys and spotted a couple of coatis on the jungle floor.... and were able to see blue morphos and a number of other butterflies daily. Mornings were spent watching nature wake-up and viewing the ocean while having coffee in the incredibly comfortable Costa Rican rocking chairs. The road up to the house is easier than expected but we were glad we had a 4 x 4. Also, the sounds of the jungle were wonderfully peaceful. We enjoyed everything about Casa Vista Verde and know we will be back one day.
Deliz S. Jun 2018
Exactly has picture! It made us feel at home and the amazing views were wonderful! Highly recommend.
Joerdis K. Apr 2018
The house is just wonderful, great location, amazing view, well furnished and decorated. Loved the spacious bathrooms with rain shower and the huge terrace, love to come back!
Norbert A. Apr 2018
We stayed 4 days at this lovely place. We saw Lots of animals. The Villa is perfectly equipped with all things for a perfect homemade dinner.
We had a construction site nearby. Work started at 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. Not the best conditions for longsleeping holidays. One Thing that did Not work was the arrival. We did Not get the necessary information like the Alarm Code etc and no one was there when we arrived. So we stepped in and the alarm started.
But the villa is that great that we forgot all These things and were totally happy about our stay.
Heidi S. Mar 2018
Lovely Frank Lloyd Wright- like home, amazing views and access to many restaurant options. The property feels enveloped in jungle with a clear view to the ocean and all the modern amenities . The feeling of privacy and safety made it easy to relax and enjoy the wrap around deck, cooling pool and birds.
The house above had a construction job going on during our stay and that was a noisy project with sawing noise, pounding and shouting.That was only annoyance and downside to an otherwise serene peaceful stay
Robert K. Feb 2018
WOW. The views from this place are amazing. Henry was a great and I look forward to visiting again.
Stefano M. Feb 2018
Great! Wonderful home. Beautiful location in the jungle at the top of the canopy. Views were spectacular but be prepared to take a steep drive up the mountain. Need a 4x4. The cicadas can be a bit overwhelming after sunset as they are attracted to light. All in all a beautiful stay.
Paulo C. Jan 2018
Simplemente espectacular, comodidad y naturaleza en total armonía.
Luda F. Dec 2017
Great location and the view is breathtaking. Stunning villa design. Easy access to everything. Looking forward to come back.
Ida T. Oct 2017

4 wheel drive.
