Incredible design and immaculate sightlines make Ballena Royale one of southern Costa Rica’s most sought-after luxury vacation rentals.
Construction on this stylish 3-bedroom, 3 ½-bath home wrapped up in August 2019 and the results are stunning. Located in the lush mountains of Escaleras, between the southern Pacific coastal towns of Dominical and Uvita, Ballena Royale sparkles and shines with every footstep through this lovely property.
The living area, swimming pool, bedrooms, gazebo/palapa and pool bar all feature storybook jungle-to-ocean views. Gaze out at the world famous Whale’s Tail reef and you may be lucky enough to spot a blue whale navigating the Pacific shoreline below. The house is so private that only toucans, monkeys, parrots, geckos, butterflies and sloths are within eyesight.
Ballena Royale was made for outdoor living. Belly up to a gorgeous wood bar or let the sounds of the water fountain lull you to sleep in a nice lounge chair. When you’re feeling spry, do a few laps in the infinity pool or partake in some yoga exercise over at the palapa. With something for everyone, this is a great vacation option for families and friends.
The home is fully equipped with wireless internet, a flat-screen television, dishwasher, BBQ, multi-car garage, gated entrance and a washer/dryer unit. There are a half-dozen pool lounge chairs as well as plenty of outdoor furniture. The kitchen table has space for 8 guests, while the fusion granite kitchen countertop has enough room to prepare a meal for a mid-size army.
Two of the bedrooms are upstairs, while the third bedroom is on the main floor of the villa. Each bedroom has an air-conditioner unit, en-suite bathroom and a safe for personal belongings.
An outdoor tub and shower are the main attractions of the master bedroom. If you like spending time in a tub while taking in the sounds of the jungle, this is definitely the room for you. It has a king bed. The two upstairs rooms are split with a balcony in between. One of the bedrooms has a king bed that can be altered into a pair of twins for younger kids. The other upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and an indoor bathtub.
It takes less than 10 minutes to get to Ballena Royale from the coastal highway. You will need a 4×4 vehicle to properly navigate the area. The nearest bar and restaurant, Bar Jolly Roger, is a 2-minute drive from the house. It’ll take anywhere from 10-20 minutes in the car to reach most local beaches, towns, shopping places and restaurants.
