Sounds of the ocean and of the nearby wildlife (monkeys, toucans, etc)

Located an easy 200 meters from Playa Chaman (a beautiful beach connected to Ballena National Park and the famous Whales Tail Beach) in Uvita, the Treehouse Bungalow at Dharma Bum Bungalow has everything guests want in a visit to Costa Rica. There is a cost to enter the National Park.

Guests will need to walk up approximately 15 steps to access the unit.

The unit is part of an open floorplan with a queen bed, a bathroom and a full kitchen (there is A/C and ceiling fan also). Relax inside the spacious living area or enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning on the outdoor patio.

The swimming pool is shared with the two-bedroom unit located below.

Highlights include:
PERFECT LOCATION in Uvita. A short 2-3 minute walk to the beach. A coffee shop about 100 meters to the south of the property and other restaurants within a short car ride away (or a 5-10 minute walk). "Downtown" Uvita is approximately five minutes away by car, where guests can enjoy more restaurants and bars, or if needed, a bank, a pharmacy, a bakery or other shops.


One of the advantages of reserving this great property with Osa Property Management, is the professional assistance and the appropriate level of communication and support from our local and knowledgeable staff.

We will assist you with booking your tours, securing your rental car or scheduling in-home services, such as a private chef or a massage. An Osa Property Management Representative will meet you at our office in Uvita (less than 5 minutes away), and escort you to the bungalow for check-in.

Guests will meet with an Osa Property Management representative at check-in and at check-out. Osa Property Management will also be available from 8 am - 8 pm via group chat. Messages sent after 8 pm will be addressed the following morning starting at 8 am. The home and digital guidebook have all of the emergency phone numbers and information needed in the event of an emergency.


The property is located in Uvita near to Playa Chaman. There are plenty of little restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. Uvita "centro" is about a 5 minute car ride away.

Uvita is one of the Central Pacific's best kept secrets. The beaches are beautiful, the hills are lush, wildlife is abundant and its the perfect place to surf, horseback ride or just relax. Add a handful of great restaurants and there's really just one thing missing from Uvita: crowds. If you are looking for a beautiful beach destination that is far less developed than Manuel Antonio, Uvita is a fantastic alternative. The highlight is Marino Ballena National Park, featuring the famous sandy "Whale Tail" where migrating humpback whales can be seen just offshore. You can whale watch, dolphin watch or snorkel.

Uvita also makes a great base for exploring Dominical (12 miles North) which is a fun, funky hippie and counterculturist enclave with great shops, dining, live music, candlelight yoga, spas, bars and beach. The tiny town of Ojochal is 9 miles to the South and is know as one of the best foodie town in Costa Rica. Ojochal also offers easy access to Playa Ventanas, a small and beautiful beach famous for its sea caves.

Uvita is the launching site for the areas most popular tours, including: whale watching, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, hiking or chocolate making.


Guests will meet with Osa Property Management for their initial access to the property. Guests will receive a keypad code to enter the property (it's gated).

The treehouse is located on the second floor of the building. Access is up a set of stairs located outside, but connected, to the home. Guests must be able to walk up approximately 15 steps to gain access to the Treehouse Bungalow (see photos)

Check-in must be completed by 8:00 pm. For check-ins between 8 pm and 10 pm there is a $50 fee and approval must be made at least 48 hours in advance. No check-ins or arrivals after 10 pm. For security and safety reasons, we cannot leave keys outside a property for pick up later. Osa Property Management reserves the right to not grant access if guests are arriving after 8 pm.


The pool is shared with the two bedroom unit below the Treehouse Bungalow. Depending on availability, the entire property can be reserved.

There is a two-car garage on the property. Guests of the Treehouse are allotted one parking space.

Clothes washing machine and clothes dryer are shared and located in the garage area. They are free to use but guests need their own clothes detergent.

Frances (review from Airbnb)
We were so grateful to be able to stay in the treehouse! You literally felt like you were sleeping in the trees with the monkey’s. One of the days we didn’t even leave the house because there was a family of money that decided to take a nap above us (there were 14)!
The home was only 5 minutes walk to the beach and there were several amazing restaurants you could walk to. Osa Property management was very responsive and helped us so much during our stay if we had any questions. We were so honored to get to meet and become friends with the owners who were staying downstairs while we were there. The cherry on top was I left my wallet with my passport, money and all my credit cards when we left and they were on it and found it as soon as I called. Thank you for making our trip so special 💗🙏🦋🌙🙌🌹.

This House is really beautiful. We stayed upstairs and were lucky because noone was downstairs so we could use the Pool by ourselves. We loved the Pool and i expecially the outside shower. Perfect for coming back from the beach and so beautiful in the nature. I even saw monkeys in the trees while standing there. Anyway we saw many Animals from the balcony too. So great :) the beach is just 5 minutes Walk away and you can hear the ocean . The second day we found out that there is an amazing beautifully and delicious Café Place just across the House. Highly recommended :)

The darhma house is nice decorated, very spacious and has a big kitchen plus fridge. We just missed a big cooking pot but apart from that they had everything you need.

Thank you for letting us extend easily one day ! :)

Thank you for the feedback and review. Everyone here at Osa Property Management enjoyed hosting you and we hope to see you again soon. Pura vida! Osa Property Management Quepos | Uvita | Ojochal

Keala Andrea (review from Airbnb)
How do I explain this Zen gem? High vibrancy, meditative, relaxing, beautiful, lush, incredible. Meters from one of the best beaches in the world with consistent surf. Diagonal from Tiburon surf shop to rent bikes, boards, or get your haircut. Steps from El Hornito with delicious Argentinian empanadas and pizza. The pool is unreal gorgeous. Stocked with amenities for cooking including huge fridge so you can bring your goodies from El Mercado / Farmer's Mkt (Wed/Sat morning - early afternoon). Lush towels, laundry on site, high ceilings in the top floor. Huge shower, spacious accommodations. Balcony with a daybed, excellent people watching. Strong Wifi. Perfect location because you feel you are in the jungle but steps away from the beach in one directions and the mountains in the other. This place is unreal. You're in for a treat here.
