Casa Big Sky


Uvita, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Short Description

Three-bedroom home with 5 minute walk to beach in Uvita


Guests love the design, layout and location of this wonderful 3 bedroom home, close to the Uvita beaches.

It is perfect for families or for small groups, as it comfortably sleeps six adults.

The contemporary styled home has 3 bedroom, with 1 King size bed in the Owner's Suite, a queen size bed in Bedroom #2 that has patio and pool access and two single beds, perfect those with children.

There are three bedrooms.
Bedroom #1 has a king-size bed, en suite private bathroom with step-in shower, and plenty of storage. Additionally, there is a sliding glass door leading to the private swimming pool. The bedroom has A/C and a ceiling fan.

Bedroom #2 has a queen-sized bed, private work space/desk, sliding glass door access to the swimming pool, A/C and ceiling fan.

Bedroom #3 has two, single-sized, beds, A/C and a ceiling fan.

The modern kitchen has everything guests will need for their cooking desires, including stainless steel appliances.

The private swimming pool was beautifully designed in that some of it was built under the overhang of the patio.

The home has air conditioners in every bedroom and in the living room. Running the A/C units uses a lot of energy and, therefore, for rentals of 25 days or more, an electricity fee will be charged prior to check-in.

Casa Big Sky is an easy, flat and no highway crossing, 5-minute walk to Playa Chaman in Uvita. Enjoy one of the best beaches in the famous Ballena National Park region every day.

The master, overlooking the pool, also boasts a beautiful and private outdoor shower and tub. Each room has large closets. The large open space kitchen and living room overlooks the pool and fully covered patio and garden with huge sliding doors.

This spacious home is fully air conditioned and equipped with top of the line appliances that make daily routines easy. Barbecuing next to the pool is a natural way to spend your visit.

Our goal is to make your trip to Costa Rica enjoyable and as relaxing as you want it to be.

Uvita, where the home is located, has everything a visitor will need to enjoy their time in Costa Rica. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, banks, pharmacies, gas stations and supermarkets all within about 5 minutes of the home.

We all had a wonderful time!

Great, Claudio! It was a pleasure to Host you. We look forward to seeing you again soon hopefully. Pura vida! Osa Property Management / Costa Rica Las Villas

Natalia (review from Airbnb)
Esta casa es hermosa y su ubicación es perfecta. Tiene la playa cerca y buenos restaurantes alrededor. Es perfecta para familias o grupos de amigos. La comunicación con Cristiann de Osa Property Management fue muy buena. :)

Brian (review from Airbnb)
Excellent home - we had a great stay in Uvita! Almost everything about this property was perfect. We loved the location - close to the beach, restaurants, groceries - but very quiet at night. Great layout - my wife and I at one end with our own bathroom, and the kids at the other end with 2 bedrooms and their own bathroom. Kitchen was perfect and well equipped. Pool was amazing (a bit bigger than it looks in the photos) and the yard was great. The only minus on this property was the furniture - the couch in the living room was very uncomfortable - we could barely get through a movie at night sitting on it, and the outdoor furniture was terrible - the cheapest plastic furniture you could find. We mainly ate out in restaurants, but the times we did eat at the house, there was nowhere comfortable to sit. Overall a great home and we will def. be back to stay again (hopefully with some upgraded furniture next time!) Osa property management was a pleasure to work with.

Hola Brian! Thank you for the nice review. New outdoor furniture is being ordered (the Owner is aware of the situation and we were hoping it would be ready in time). We are aware of the situation. I'll keep you posted when the carpenters are finished with it. We hope to see you in the near future. Keep in touch! Osa Property Management | Costa Rica Las Villas

Lynette (review from Airbnb)
Lovely spacious house in a good location.
High spec finish but small, cheap plastic table for outside dining. Pool was smaller than it looked on the photos , too cold and the pool filter/mechanics shed was noisy. Construction noise from next door from sunrise to sunset 6 days a week and construction noise across the road so it wasn't the relaxing and peaceful holiday we expected. Had to ask for a hairdryer that was listed and they said wasn't.

Jennifer (review from Airbnb)
The house is very modern, clean, and has everything you need to cook and relax by the pool. The location is good as well, you can walk to a beautiful beach with mild but fun waves. And it isn’t busy at all, there wasn’t anyone there but us when we arrived at 8:00am. You walk by a few places on the way, a small supermarket, a few restaurants, and a great ice cream place with the nicest older lady that runs it. A bit of Spanish will help a lot, but everyone we came across was patient with my bad Spanish. The beach does cost about $6 per adult (kids free) and they only take credit card. We didn’t know this the first time we went down. A Mexican restaurant (La Choza De Alejo) is pretty much next door and is delicious. Check in was easy, the property managers were kind. It is an easy couple minute drive to all the other restaurants in Uvita.

The only bad thing was that we had a few issues. Some were resolved quickly, which I appreciated. But there was a smell coming from the drains and many mosquitoes inside the house. We kept doors closed all day to try to prevent it, and killed many, but they were still multiplying, perhaps coming from backed up sewer drains? I let the property managers know and hopefully they will address this issue because otherwise it was great. Bring bug spray just in case!

Perfect Stay
Great home. Walkable to a few good restaurants and the beach. Construction next door took away from the daytime relaxation. They were metal framing the entire stay but we found ways to work around it.

Rita (review from Airbnb)
I would highly recommend this property. It’s beautiful and literally has everything you need for your stay. I stayed here with my family (husband, 2 Young boys and niece). We are all loved it and my boys didn’t want to leave. I’m so happy I picked this place and look forward to returning one day. Thank you again.

Thank you Rita! Everyone here at Osa Property Management hope to see you again in the future. Pura vida!

David (review from Airbnb)
We stayed here for Christmas 2021. This is a brand new custom home, really nicely designed and built, and very comfortable. We liked everything about it. The outdoor dining and relaxing space by the pool is awesome. Every room has ceiling fans and there is plenty of A/C. High ceilings and lots of natural light. A few hundred meters off of 34 so it’s convenient but it was very quiet. 4wd is not needed. You can walk about 10 minutes down the road to the beach. There is a small grocery store on the way and a few restaurants. It’s a quick drive to town where there is an excellent grocery, many restaurants, and plenty of other services. The host was extremely responsive and helped us check in very late after our arrival flight was delayed. Five stars all the way around.

Nadine M. (review from Vrbo)
Not what we expected
The house itself was ok. There was only place to eat for 3 people which was a problem for us as a family of 4. But it was quite well equipped. It was more than a 5 minute walk to the beach but it was convenient to many places in Uvita.
Our biggest problem was with the property management company. They were absolutely unresponsive to problems we had and when/if they did respond it was to let us know that nobody else had problems so it must have been just us. The master bath has some plumbing issues - standing water, immensely slow shower drain and as a result there was a massive mosquito infestation in the master bath. We killed a minimum of 30-40 mosquitos in the bathroom on a daily basis. We reached out to property management to let them know and never heard back. If I could offer advice, find a different management company to use that may be actually respond to issues.

Not what you could expect
Casa Big Sky is advertised as having ocean view, well, it doesn't have. It is advertised being a five minute walk from the beach, count for 10-15
It is located directly at the road, therefore noisy
All the rest is perfect, interior design, equipment of the kitchen, very clean and very friendly local staff

Gabriela (review from Airbnb)
Great location! The house was well equipped and very comfortable.
The manager was prompt to respond to our inquiries.
