Description

A relaxing eco-friendly home right in the heart of laid-back Uvita. The two-story home is a homage to its natural surroundings, using natural materials throughout the whole property. Locally sourced wood decorates the exterior of the property and is used through the interior as feature walls or kitchen fixtures. Large windows and sliding doors beckon in the cool breeze and offer opportunities to spy on the tropical wildlife all around you. Listen to the serenades of the local birds as you take a dip in the turquoise pool. There are over 350 species of bird in Uvita, making it a birdwatcher’s paradise.

Both floors offer identical entertainers kitchens with breakfast bars and stainless steel appliances. The house has three bedrooms overall, and double fridges and pull-down taps make entertaining large groups a breeze. The upstairs floor is set up as a spacious studio flat with an open-plan bedroom and living area. It is accessed by an outdoor wooden staircase to give a small family or couple privacy. The lower floor offers two large bedrooms and a large open-plan living space that is perfect for entertaining a large group. A patio wraps around the entire building, offering plenty of room for outdoor lounging or dining areas.

Previously, the home has been used as a holiday rental for traveling multi-generational families, but it would also be suitable as a primary residence or holiday house. The property is gated, ensuring its security all year round. The home places a large focus on sustainability and eco-friendly living. It is decked out with water-efficient bathrooms, and the appliances in both kitchens are electricity efficient. Little touches like the tiled floors and high vaulted ceilings help to keep the home cool and comfortable.
The home also features ceiling fans both indoors and on the balconies and air-conditioning. The nearest beach, Playa Chaman is a minutes’ walk away, and the town of Uvita is a short stroll or bike ride away, reducing the need for a car.

Tourists and locals are delighted by humpback whale sightings from the beach, or there are a number of boat charters to allow you to see them up close and personal.
