vacation rental description

Welcome to Casa Aracari...Let your imagination soar where the Sky meets the Sea, located at a comfortable 500 meters above the coastline of Punta de Ballena in Costa Rica. This ideal tropical vacation home is nestled in the jungle on one acre of Paradise. Its unique architecture and original design by Eva Powers offers a spacious open-air indoor/outdoor floor plan. Walk in and pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming!

We take pleasure in sharing the beauty of Costa Rica by using materials manufactured locally and incorporated in the design throughout the house. Construction was completed in December 2010 by local craftsmen/artists Wilberth Acuna and Dagoberto Mora. The spiral teak staircase at the heart of the home, wraps itself around a locally grown Guanacaste tree. The railings are artistically handcrafted with local Mangrove roots and Bejuco vine. The ceiling is lined with grass mats made by skilled Mayan Indians especially for Casa Aracari.

The fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and beautiful custom wood counters is the social center of the home. For an extra special treat, create your own gourmet dinner and serve it in the dining room while enjoying the sunset views. Sit in the living room, open the tall folding glass doors, and create a large indoor/outdoor living space with panoramic views of the pool, jungle covered mountains, ocean, Bahia de Ballena, and surrounding bird life.

Relax under the covered deck in a hammock or lounge chair, go for a swim in the beautiful infinity pool, or enjoy an ice cold drink made from delicious fruits of the region while sitting on one of the four bar stools at the table shaded by the palapa covered umbrella in the pool.

So many beautiful scenes will delight you as you sit on the upstairs balcony and watch in awe as the sunrise and sunset transform the sky! Watch from the balcony for the many varieties of wildlife in the area... the jungle surrounding the house promises an abundance of tropical sights and sounds that will continue day and night. Be sure to have your camera ready! Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Parrots, and Dart frogs are frequent visitors.

There is a Casita on the property which offers a charming bedroom for two with Queen size bed and full bathroom, a small kitchen and dining area. There you can enjoy sitting on your own covered porch, swinging on the hammock and tune into the sights and sounds of the surrounding jungle.

The Casita is optional and can rented in addition to the Main house rental, but the Casita cannot be rented without the Main home. You will always have the use of the entire property to yourselves, not sharing with others you don't know.

The road up the hill to Casa Aracari (4x4 vehicle is required) will take you on an Adventure passing by waterfalls, small bridges over streams, tree ferns, tropical flowers, surrounding jungle life and ocean views. You will see Costa Rica at its best!

Neighboring towns of Uvita, Dominical and Ojochal offer some of the most pristine beaches in Costa Rica as well as fabulous Restaurants to delight your taste. As a guest of Casa Aracari you are also welcome to enjoy the special cuisine at nearby Kura Boutique Hotel. Please contact Kura directly for your reservations.

There are many thrilling and educational activities in the area...Something to please everyone. Our staff is available to assist with questions and bookings. See list of Activities below.

We hope you enjoy planning your trip to Casa Aracari in beautiful Uvita, Costa Rica.

Pura Vida!

We plan to continue with the beauty, theme, and traditions of Casa Aracari, just as the previous designer and owner had intended. Please see below for Reviews of the fabulous experiences from guests of Casa Aracari.

traveler reviews for this uvita villa rental

Your search is over.... paradise found!

Review submitted: June 17, 2014   Date of arrival: June 1, 2014

Where to start? Well, lets start six months prior to our stay at Casa Aracari. After making contact with the owners through this website I received a friendly response from Claire. Over the following months Claire answered all my questions not only about the house but other facets of our visit. Also the good folks at Uvita Information Center were outstanding in organizing our car rental and all the activities that we wanted to do. So, when we arrived at Parmer Sur our car was waiting at the airport. As you have probably gathered by reading other reviews, most of us are unprepared for that first trip up the mountain to the house. But don't let this put you off, if you're coming to Costa Rica you are going to be driving on unpaved roads, so get with the program! By the second or third day you'll be tackling it like a rally driver pro, just select 1st gear at the bottom of the hill and go for it, it's a blast!
Once you arrive at the property you're going to want to open all the sliding doors, step out onto terrace look out over the jungle and the outstanding vista which is the Whales Tail and Cano Island. Breathe in, breathe out and then go WOW!! Take a look at the beaming smiles on the rest of your party and congratulate yourself on making such a smart choice of destination. When you step out onto the master suite balcony and look out at this stunning scene the heavenly gates will open up and a choir of angles will sing. Think I'm kidding? Well there's only one way you're going to find out!
Claire has equipped this house so that your stay will not encounter any stress. All the modern conveniences that we all just couldn't do without and all the furnishings and decor are tastefully selected to enhance the experience. Everything is immaculately clean.
Now, some of you might be put off by the idea of your early morning alarm call being supplied by the resident Howler Monkeys but the reality of the situation is that it starts to get light about 4:00am and get dark by about 6:00pm. The nice thing is that you will transition into your new waking day effortlessly. Awake, smile, go out onto the balcony and just soak up that glorious new day. In that dawn light you can survey the beauty of the jungle, the distant sound of the ocean, nature unfurling itself as monkeys scamper from tree to tree and parrots call to each other. Yes... Pura Vida! And, after your day's activities, be they spent by the pool or exploring the area you will be ready for bed by 9:00pm.

A Vacation Like No Other

Review submitted: March 15, 2014   Date of arrival: March 5, 2014

The drive up was an understated adventure but let me tell you, it was worth it. After entering through the baboo gates, opening that front door and seeing the beautiful ocean right before our eyes, we knew we made the right decision. Claire is incredibly responsive to your emails and questions. The house is fully stocked with kitchen tools and appliances. The gardens are impeccable. You will have difficulty finding a favourite place to take pictures. We did miss more comfortable lounge chairs outside though, but other than that it was spectacular! The natural woodwork only adds to the Costa Rican experience. We loved the waterfall, walking down one day to have a well-deserved margarita! Rent a good 4X4 for sure and let your adventure begin! If you want to test the Costa Rican experience, this is the home to launch it from. It is safe and secure and tranquil and BEAUTIFUL! Make sure you stop at the grocery store in Uvita and stock up on your food supplies - the salt and pepper can be moist from the humidity and we brought our own spices from home. The water is safe to drink and there is tons of bedding and towels. Again - it felt like paradise from day one to day 9!

Very well maintained and landscaped

Review submitted: March 15, 2014   Date of arrival: February 8, 2014

Casa Aracai was everything advertised. Lots of wildlife up close and far enough from the bustle of Uvita to allow solitude and privacy. Wonderful house with more than adequate furnishings and appliances. Perfect for relaxing and reading a good book or doing a day trip to San Isidro or Golfito. Bank, grocery,bakery,pharmacy, pizza shop, and tire place close enough by for comfort. Definitely get your 4wheel drive from reputable company and check the tires before you leave the car place.The mountain is formidable . Also Marvin the grounds keeper is a jewel and will give you hot tips on the area. We look forward to returning next winter.
