Tropical bliss awaits at Villa Ballena.
Nestled in the quaint southern Costa Rica beach town of Uvita, Villa Ballena is a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom vacation villa that’s ideal for travelers looking for easy access to outdoor activities, beaches, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping.
At Villa Ballena, you’re a 20-minute walk from the Marino Ballena National Park, a hotspot for northern and southern whale migration for approximately nine months each year. There are great inshore and offshore fishing options just outside the park entrance, and a potpourri of fantastic beaches to explore up and down the immediate coastline.
The house is ensconced within the community of Uvita, with neighboring homes featuring an authentic mix of born-and-raised locals and out-of-town tourists. Visiting the area is a great way to enjoy the true Costa Rica experience.
Town restaurants and shopping are five minutes by car, so you’re never too far away from some amazing international cuisine. While we always recommend renting a 4×4 vehicle so you can properly — and safely — explore all the delightful places the area has to offer, you can technically reach Villa Ballena without a 4×4 vehicle.
Villa Ballena is suited for up to six guests, and there are four beds total. Construction completed in early 2021 and everything from the furniture to the bedsheets feels nice and fresh.
The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, king bed, television, and air-conditioning unit. The second bedroom also has a king bed, TV and AC. The third and final bedroom has a pair of queen beds and an AC unit. The second and third bedrooms share a bathroom.
There is also air conditioning in the living room and a beautiful, wooden table in the dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you’d need to whip up breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And the ocean is right around the corner when you decide it’s time to reel in some snapper or mahi-mahi, while fresh fruits and vegetables can be discovered at the nearby farmers’ market.
Since Costa Rica is such an outdoor place, you’re going to need a big swimming pool and some serious shade. Villa Ballena has you covered — literally. About two-thirds of the pool is covered by an awning, making the transition between tanning and chilling absolutely seamless. The pool has both shallow and deeper sections for kids and adults of all ages. In addition, there are a pair of outdoor sofas and a swing to practice your ultimate relaxation techniques.
Villa Ballena also features an entry gate for security, wireless internet, a washer/dryer unit, and parking for up to three vehicles.
The villa is cared for by YouGetHere Property Management, whose team will be on hand to check you in and out of the house, as well as help with any repair issues that could pop up. If you need assistance with car rental contacts, in-home chef and massage services, or tour reservations, YouGetHere Property Management will always be one email or phone call away. You and your crew will be in good hands with YouGetHere.
Being close to the action has a lot of wonderful benefits. Whether you want to go surfing all day, hike to a waterfall, rip around on an ATV or just sit by the swimming pool without lifting a finger, a stay at Villa Ballena makes your vacation fun and convenient — and one for the history books.
Book your dates at Villa Ballena today and you’ll be dreaming of that bathwater-warm Pacific Ocean by the time your head hits the pillow later tonight. Sweet dreams, and Pura Vida!

Beautiful home loved the pool and outside area!July 22, 2021
Great place to stay - cosy, lovely furnishing and ambience - well equipped kitchen with a good sized pool just outside. Partly covered allowing for a pleasant sit in sun or rain, peace and tranquility await. 15 minute walk to the national park (closed Wednesdays) for great beach days or tours on a boat. Restaurants nearby too, and the BM close by on the Costanera offers all your food needs. Good sized rooms, clean, well designed and a great place to stay.
