“CASA COCOBOLO, Your Private Sanctuary 10 minutes from Downtown Uvita”

Casa Cocobolo is a luxurious four-bedroom “jungle modern” house designed to maximize the panoramic views of tropical jungle, sea, and sky. Set in the hills directly above the center of Uvita, the house offers not only dramatic views of the Whale’s tail, Caño Island, and Isla Ballena but also wonderful non-stop breezes that make the extra expense of air conditioning unnecessary. Located conveniently close to the amenities of town, however in a blissfully peaceful and private setting, surrounded by trees, tropical flowering plants, and abundant wildlife.

The graceful contemporary design, which was inspired by the architecture of Marcio Kogan, provides a wonderful juxtaposition and backdrop to the natural setting. The house is filled with custom-designed hand-crafted furniture. Costa Rican Guanacaste wood from a storm-felled tree provides richness and warmth contrasting against the polished concrete floors and the clean white Milestone and stainless steel surfaces. The heart of the home is an open-concept great room that incorporates the living, dining, and kitchen areas. This area has massive sliding glass doors that offer expansive views and can be opened up to maximize the breezes. This area is also ideal for entertaining and opens up to a newly installed recycled plastic decking material. On this level is also the 4th bedroom which has access to the deck.

The main living space is linked to the second level by a floating staircase of metal and rich, dark Guayama wood (ironwood). Upstairs is the spacious master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom, and an even more spacious kids bedroom with two built-in bunk beds. There is also a shared full bathroom and a laundry/mudroom for the owners to enter. Outside the mudroom is the covered two car parking area.

Outside the house and below the cantilevered great room, accessed by the gently spiraling and floating staircase, you can spend your time wandering the lush gardens, relaxing on the deck, or swimming laps in the 18 m long pool. The property is second to none in terms of the size of its relatively flat lawn, particularly in the hills overlooking the Whale’s tail. It is private, bursting with colorful flowering plants, and great for kids to play. The yard is big enough that you could build a guest or caretaker’s house on the property and still have plenty of room to spare.
