    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Let your spirit fly at Casa Aracari, located at a comfortable 500 meters above the dazzling coastline of Punta de Ballena. Nestled in the jungle on one acre of paradise, the house is truly a work of art designed by Eva Powers. Completed in December 2010, this ideal tropical vacation home offers a spacious open-air indoor/outdoor floor plan. Its unique architecture and original design capture Costa Rica in a way not seen anywhere else. Walk in and pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming!

    We take pride in having incorporated materials sourced and manufactured in beautiful Costa Rica. The spiral teak stairway is the heart of the home and wraps itself around a locally grown Guanacaste tree. The railings are artistically handcrafted with local Mangrove roots and Bejuco vine.

I wish I could lie and give Casa Aracari a horrible review so I could keep the place to myself! It is paradise. From the moment you arrive and walk through the door, you are taken aback by the gorgeous jungle surrounding, stylish decor, and phenomenal view of the Whale's Tail. I actually could envision myself spinning and singing like Julie Andrews on the mountain top in the Sound of Music!

Within our first 24 hours, we saw toucans, parrots, a coati, tons of really cool insects, butterflies, geckos, lizards, toads, and dart frogs. We were woken up by the howler monkeys that hung out in the trees across the road and fell asleep to the sound of the tink frogs.

The house has everything you need, including tons of cookware and bakeware and any kitchen utensil you would ever need.

The unique setting of Casa Aracari which overlooks the Whale's Tail, the beautiful Pacific Ocean as well as the mountain backdrop near Uvita is completely breathtaking and captivates one's heart. The house is well equipped with everything needed to prepare fresh meals, enjoy a relaxing dip in the infinity pool and to savor the luxury of such a well appointed home. The construction of the home is intriguing with many delightful surprises incorporated in the design. The furnishing are beautiful, crafted by local artisans with native exotic woods. Chaise lounges and several hammocks beckon one to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the rain forest. Toucans, aracari, and other birds are plentiful as are the butterflies, bullfrogs, and geckos. Tropical plants and flowers abound throughout the artistically landscaped grounds. Pineapples, bananas and papayas can all be found growing on the property. One can sit for hours mesmerized while observing the wildlife and soaking... more
