Bella Vita villa is a charming vacation property located near some of the most sought-after stretches of sand in southern Pacific Costa Rica.
Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms, Bella Vita can comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Visitors can walk to the famous Whale’s Tail beach from the house — it takes about 15 minutes depending on how you roll. Access to the town of Uvita, with grocery stores, international cuisine, pharmacies, banks, and souvenirs, is only a short car drive away — again, this is subject to cruising speed but peg it at about 5 minutes from the house to town.
Nestled in a quiet, yet tight-knit beachside community, the home is sleek and stylish with seamless transitions from the kitchen to the living room to the swimming pool which, by the way, is big enough to do laps in. If you’re traveling with kids, Bella Vita offers peace of mind because you can easily view the swimming pool from the living room and master bedroom.
It is also a very secure property, with a gated carport entrance and fencing throughout. The property manager’s office, YouGetHere Property Management, is located about 15 minutes down the highway. They are easy to contact for concierge services and home-repair needs.
The setup at Bella Vita goes like this:
It takes about 3.5 hours to drive from the international airport in San Jose to the villa.
The house has wireless internet.
There is secure parking for two vehicles. You don’t have to have a 4×4 vehicle to access this property, but we highly recommend renting a 4×4 because it’s much better to navigate the area with that capability than without it.
The master bedroom has a king bed, en-suite bathroom, television, pool access, and air conditioning. The other two bedrooms have a queen bed in one room and a king bed in the other. The room with the queen has a television, the room with the king does not. Both of those bedrooms have air conditioning, and they share a bathroom.
In the kitchen, which is fully stocked with all types of quality cooking utensils, there is a countertop bar with four barstools. The dining room has a table that seats six, as well as a television.
Outside at the swimming pool, there is another six-seat table, a pair of lounge chairs for laying out, a hammock, a couch, a BBQ, and a television.
So the setup is pretty straight-forward. When you show up for a well-earned vacation at Bella Vita, you won’t encounter a bunch of surprises.
Furthermore, the Dominical/Uvita area has so much to offer in terms of tours and activities, many of which involve interacting with an incredible variety of wildlife. Monkeys, toucans, sloths, whales, parrots, crocodiles, anteaters, pigs, horses, frogs, macaws, and a million other crazy creatures inhabit this lovely land. Every day of your trip, you can see something you’ve never seen before or do something you’ve never done before. It’s that wild in this region of Costa Rica, borderline unbelievable.
That sound coming through your computer speaker is Bella Vita calling your name. Or is it a howler monkey? Sometimes it’s difficult to decipher these things when you’re dreaming about the tropics. Nevertheless, it’s probably best to come to visit soon and find out for yourself. Bella Vita is definitely the place to be.

We loved our stay here and would definitely book again. Close to many activities, spacious, clean and my kids loved the pool. The internet was a little slow but we didn't mind because we were too busy having fun. We stayed with our four kids, it was clean, spacious, well-stocked with cooking supplies, close to restaurants and grocery stores, and a national park. My kids loved the pool. We would definitely recommend staying here with friends. Check-in and out was super easy.We loved our stay here and would definitely book again!!!July 10, 2021
"Great home! There was an unfortunate issue with the water heater that could not be fixed for our entire stay. They quickly sent maintenance but because it was Semana Santa, the broken part could not be replaced. My kids (9, 7, 3) all really enjoyed the pool. The walk to the beach was a little far for the kids and all their gear, so we were thankful we had a car. The beds were really firm, I don't think I've ever slept on a more firm bed. The kitchen was well stocked, we cooked multiple meals while we stayed which was great! The hammock was a favorite place to relax! Great stay!"“Great home! Great stay!”March 29, 2021
