Casa Florida is a newly built 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 baths, pinewood home, that is elevated off the ground that helps keep air circulating in our tropical climate. Two sets of sliding glass doors and windows aplenty bring loads of natural light, adding to the open air feeling. Large ceiling fans and air conditioners, paired with high ceilings, keep the house well ventilated and cool.
The large open kitchen, central to the home is designed with the intention of being enjoyed. It features teak cabinets, granite counters, and seating for 4 at the peninsula.
The kitchen is equipped with:
- A 5-burner stove,
- Convection oven,
- Large refrigerator with an ice maker and filtered water,
- Coffee maker, and
- Dish and glassware and cutlery provided.
THE MAIN LIVING AREA
In the main open air living area there is a custom wooden dining table that seats up to 6 guests. And facing the patio doors and outdoor deck is the den that has a large custom designed L-shaped sofa, coffee table and TV cabinet for the 52″ TV with cable/internet and 10 Mbps fiberoptic WIFI internet set up. This all, cleanly set up in a media unit made from purple heart wood, a hard to find in our area.
Wooden floors and ceilings are throughout the home, continuing from the sliders on to the spacious front porch, giving it a rustic feel. The pine wood smells homey and brings you into a sense of calm and inner peace.
The master bedroom has a queen bed with pillow-top mattress, corner desk, and large wardrobe for two. Sliding glass doors open to the front deck.
The second bedroom has two single beds with pillow-top mattresses, large wardrobe and a teak wall-mounted shelf. All bedroom furniture is custom made with wood composite against bugs and mold.

The spa-inspired bathroom has plank tiles, stone shower with a rain shower head, custom purple heart wood counter with a stone sink, large teak cabinet for storage and an oversized mirror.
The laundry room has full-sized washer and dryer with utility sink and the additional 1/2 bath.
The covered car port fits up to 2 full-size vehicles, accompanied with fully automated privacy gate, a hose spigot and custom outdoor shower for when you need to rinse down after your beach run!
There is a complete home security system throughout the property, with outdoor security cameras. There is a battery back-up console for the TV, cable, internet, and alarm system. Circuit interrupters have been built into the breaker panel for added safety.
WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT CASA FLORIDA
Sunset in the big yard with the river breeze and the scent of ylang ylang floating in the air. This home is ideal for a single person expecting visitors or a couple, perhaps they may want to take the plunge into the laidback Costa Rican lifestyle, while enjoying all the luxuries, but without the commitment of purchasing a property themselves. It is also suitable for people who may not have access to a full time vehicle and may want to benefit from walking or biking and local transportation to get around.
We are open to renting short and long term.
The large deck provides covered outdoor space that lets you connect with nature and the sound of the birds is always welcome in the mornings. There are no homes on the opposite side of the street as this is where the river flows, giving the property a tranquil background noise that soothes away any rainy day.
This rental also benefits from its close proximity to all the essentials and restaurants in Bahia and Uvita, yet the property maintains a high degree of privacy – quiet enough for our resident sloth that you may be able to spot in the trees above. Also in the trees you will find ripening limes and a local variety of mandarinas.
The house is within a leisurely 15 minute walk to the Parque Nacional Marino Ballena, as you leave the home you will see the river flowing and many trees, as proceed down the dirt road you walk by pastures, reminiscent of old times where people rode horseback and then all of a sudden you hit the black top and find yourself in the center of Bahia and the street that borders the entrance to the Parque Nacional that homes the famous Whales Tail.
