Location: Uvita, Costa Rica
High above Uvita, in the highly desired Bejuco neighbourhood, quietly tucked away in nature at the end of a secluded street you will find this genuinely unique home offering total privacy: no neighbours, no loud parties, no cars, and no dust!
The view is simply outstanding, enchanting you with stunning year-round sunsets. The house overlooks the Marina Ballena National Park and the world famous Whale’s Tail sandbar formation.
It is truly a “WOW-FACTOR” home!
This distinctive home, rewarded for its remarkable and exemplary tropical design, is a gem which sticks out of the lush jungle and surrounded by many impressive mature trees.
The house is often referred to as a true piece of art and is destined to serve as a reference in modern tropical house design. Truly an open concept home, you will be refreshed by constant ocean AND mountain breezes, with no need to flip on the existing cooling fans.
This home is entirely constructed with TEAK – a durable, weather resistant and termite resistant material. The outside walls consist of 80 doors with mobile louvers of between 3 and 4.5 meters in length, and 6 meters in height!
The house responds to its surrounding humid tropical habitat through passive climate control, and it does so by taking advantage of its special location: natural ventilation is provided by the sea and mountain breezes, and solar shading is gifted by the towering mature trees.
The inclined façade panels can be opened or closed individually in order to regulate house views and fresh air exposure, increase or reduce air flows, or create privacy and security.
The panels blur the line between interior and exterior spaces, playing with the dynamic between the surrounding nature and the built environment – this is one of the key features of effectively designed tropical architecture.
Keep slim and trim by exercising in the 22 meter lap-pool, possibly the longest pool in the region! The lap pool is also an infinity pool, giving the impression that the pool seamlessly blends into the nearby ocean.
And after the exercise session, why not throw a sunset pool party? The pool lights can be adjusted to 8 different colours, creating a perfect ambience for every occasion.

To the homeowner’s delight, Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, Howler and White face Monkeys, and countless species of tropical birds, mammals, and butterflies are frequent visitors to the house, patio and surrounding trees. Watching the colourful sunsets, which remain visible year-round, while listening to the sounds of the jungle is an unforgettable experience – you are sure to see and hear something new every day. And after a relaxing sleep, you will witness the jungle coming alive again as the animals welcome the first light of the day.
