Overview

About the property

For travellers who are looking for something more than budget, Ocean Melody 2 is the place!

Ocean Melody 2 adds the experience of the older sister Ocean Melody to a bigger property, with wider views and larger living spaces.

Private and comfortable for two guests, this new casita is located in the coast-side village of Bahia, only 800 meters from the main entrance of the Marine National Park Ballena and the beautiful wild beaches Playa Uvita and Playa Colonia.

Its location right behind the beach forest of the National Park, only 200 meters from the Ocean, provides a daily breeze and the constant magic melody of the sea waves.

The house is made of local cultivated, environmental-friendly certified pinewood. The sea breeze is reinforced by designed ceiling fans in all rooms and the porch; a fresh local ceramic floor completes the cosy feeling of natural immersion.

Air conditioning provides extra cooling in the bedroom. The queen sized bed is comfortable and equipped with 100% cotton bed and pillows sheets. A living room sofa bed is available for young families with kids.

The fully furnished kitchen is nicely decorated with South Italian tiles. It forms a unique space with the living room, and creates continuity with the external porch thanks to the phantom sliding door. You will enjoy the flat screen TV, with satellite and video library, on the comfortable sofa-bed.

The bathroom is bright and supplied with hot water system. There is a security safe for valuables.

The spacious external porch offers two rocking chairs to enjoy the sound of the Ocean, while navigating on a comfortable wireless internet. Or you can just hang the hammock and lay, watching at the coastal jungle and experience the sight of a monkey or of a loud screaming pair of Scarlet Macaws!

The external tropical garden hosts a variety of tropical plants and the house is equipped with a BBQ area, a round stone table and chairs, and outdoor shower. The parking place is private, gated and lighted at night.

The private pool and deck will make your stay just perfect! The pool (6x3,5 meters) has internal stairs and a comfortable sidewalk where enjoying the sun and a fresh drink...or you can lay down on the pool lounge chairs in the shadow of the pool sun umbrella!

No 4x4 expensive rental car is necessary…actually you won’t need a car at all! The village of Bahia (an old farm that became a tourist destination after the national Park was created) can be easily reached by public bus. It hosts all tour operators organizing mid-day boat tours of the park or daily tours to the more distant and spectacular Caño Island and Corcovado National Park. You can hang around walking or cycling (bicycles available on request); go to the beach and take a low-tide walk to the world wide known Whale’s Tail; surf a wave at Playa Colonia when the tide raises; rest in one of the local sodas and enjoy a fresh fried fish or a natural fruit juice; or just buy some food and be back home………all within few hundred meters from Ocean Melody 2!

No need of inaccessible luxurious villas anymore…With Ocean Melody 2 you can make your visit to paradise possible, optimize your money and enjoy unforgettable excursions, without renouncing to the comforts your vacation deserves!

About Massi

My name is Massi, I am a property manager of the Costa Ballena area. I love my wife, my animals, the beach, the surf and the luxury of the tropical nature. .

Massi purchased this house in 2017

Why Massi chose Uvita

Ocean Melody 2 is the continued experience of Ocean Melody. The great success of the first cottage motivated me and my business partner Adriano to go for a second, improved cottage. Bigger property, wider views, more comfortable living spaces. But still at the same price of the first one!

What makes this house unique

Fantastic price, privacy, excellent location close to town groceries and restaurants but just behind the tropical Coastal jungle (200 meters from the Ocean). You can watch a monkey close to the pool and then be at the grocery for your bread in a couple of minutes :-)

Monkeys

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely place to stay close to the beach (more than 200 meters) but still a nice walk. The birds and monkeys are pretty prolific. If you think you can sleep past dawn, the howler monkeys have a different idea :)

The pool was lovely to come back to after a day of sight seeing.

Yes there are bugs, its the jungle, but a nice place to discover Uvita from.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Joe! I hope that monkeys represent a nice way to wake up as they do for me! About fresh towels, as you have been informed there is an extra cleaning fee for requested extra cleanings, so what one needs is just ask and it will be done! We think though that the provided bath towels, hand towel, and pool towels are enough for two people staying 4 nights as you did. For longer stays, we do include weekly cleanings. Pura vida, Massi

A tiny, but lovely, place to call our home away from home in Uvita.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Melody 2. The dip pool provided a refreshing way to cool off, the patio table allowed us to play cards in the eve while listening to the surrounding sounds of nature, and the patio rocking chairs were perfect when enjoying our morning coffee. The unit was extremely clean but was a tad small for a family of four (fortunately we were able to sit outside for much of our stay). Massi was great in terms of correspondence. We followed his recommendation and booked a rafting tour through his wife Sonia — we had an awesome time! From Ocean Melody 2 we walked to the Whale’s Tail (it was much closer than I had expected) & I was amazed by the beauty of the shoreline. We also walked to a nearby Soda and enjoyed a terrific authentic Costa Rican meal. I would definitely recommend this unit to couples or a couple with small children.

Natures Paradise in your own back yard

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon, small and basic, but perfectly equipped to be self sufficient. Massi and his wife Sonia provided outstanding service.

The private pool is fantastic and the wildlife was something else, a troop of howler monkeys and babies, mackaws every day and a raft of others. We saw more here than in the national parks.

Would recommend a stay.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the pool and outdoor area! Relaxed and napped in the hammock several afternoons. Felt very safe, locked gate for the car and security system for the house. Walkable to beach and several restaurants or a short drive to main road. AC only in the bedroom which was fine but had no blanket on the bed, only a sheet which was a challenge for cold natured person like myself while my partner is like a furnace. Shower also cycled between hot and cold which was annoying but not a major issue. Would definitely stay again!
