Hear the sound of the waves from this rare ocean view house. "Rare" due to its ocean view, location, pool & price. Granted, it is a simple 1 bedroom 1 bath home, but it is a simply gorgeous ocean view home situated about 5 minutes to the beach and about 7 minutes to Uvita's town center. Great for a re-locating couple or single person, as well as a second home for guests and rentals.
The property sits at about 400 feet elevation. So the drive up from the coastal highway gets you to elevation while being near to the beach. The elevation and prominence makes for a nearly constant and comfortable breeze. The open-ness of the house allows the breeze to flow through and maintain the inhabitants comfortable and happy. Right at the bottom of the hill is the coastal highway. Just on the other side of the coastal highway is jungle and Playa Hermosa, one of the local well-known beaches good for surfing, launching your kayak, walking with a loved one, passing the day in a private way and so on.
Back to the house. The house was recently remodeled. All of the floor is new ceramic tile. The bathroom and kitchen counters are all nicely appointed with new tile as well. On the end of the house closest to the ocean is a small pool that runs the width of the house.
The house is mostly open, which is fine in Costa Rica due to its perfect climate. The only enclosed areas are the bedroom and bathroom. Even the kitchen is enclosed on 3 walls with the fourth one made of decorative iron that allows for the free passing of breezes.
Who is this property good for?
This is a great entry level house for anyone looking to get their foot in the door and live in Costa Rica's southern pacific zone. There is the possibility of building up and/or building out. A second story would provide more living space as well as optimize the ocean view.
An ocean view home in this price is nearly unheard of. This property would make a great second home for rental & guest use. The community of Playa Hermosa is perfectly situated in the heart of all local tourism activities and is even situated just up the hill from the phenomenally popular Envision Festival that happens here in Uvita every year. As a rental property it has lots of promise.
The Playa Hermosa Community is nestled into the coastal mountain range and even has its own preserve complete with trails and lookout points that is growing in popularity amongst bird watching enthusiasts and those that simply enjoy getting out into nature. Howler & white-face monkeys along with toucans and a myriad of ever changing bird species are frequent visitors to the property.
So, nothing too fancy. Just simple living in some of the most gorgeous of planet Earth's natural offerings.
