About the property

AMAZING OCEANVIEWS and "JUST FIVE MINUTES" to downtown Uvita !!!! !

PANORAMIC OCEAN and “Whales Tail” view from this gated NEW CONSTRUCTION 2700 Sq. ft. end of road private estate. This spacious 3 bedroom 4 1/2 bath Epiphany Villas Property is just 1 kilometer from the coast road (HWY 34)........... and just a 5 MINUTE DRIVE TO DOWNTOWN UVITA and beaches (gas station, grocery stores, 35 + restaurants, banks, activities, etc).

From the moment you pass through the electronic gate you cannot miss the unobstructed ocean views and flower filled grounds that surround you. The carport is less than 10 FT from the door to the residence (NO STAIRS from Carport to living area) The bird watching (toucans, hummingbirds, parrots and much more) is amazing and life is so tranquil in this rain forest setting.

Epiphany Villa properties attention to detail is evident throughout this property..... From pillow top beds, hand made local soap, 100% cotton sheets, Martex towels, enormous bath sheets (for the pool), total home SONOS sound system throughout, 10 Mbps Internet Service (thats VERY fast in Costa Rica but service can be effected by power outages and weather) WIFI, 65" HDTV (NETFLIX ONLY) NO CABLE.......its all about a truly 5 Star experience.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION :

GROUND FLOOR :

ENTRY: Electronic gate to cobblestone covered carport

KITCHEN: HUGE oceanview all stainless gourmet kitchen (14' x 16') with GE DISHWASHER and GE French door refrigerator/freezer with icemaker, chefs stove, bar counter and even a disposal. Kitchen has SONOS sound system you can enjoy while your cooking your dinner !

DOWNSTAIRS BATHROOMS: ½ bath and a poolside shower, in addition there is an employee 1/2 bath in the laundry.

INDOOR / OUTDOOR ROOM: OCEANVIEW (14' x 14') with dining table for 8 and "Sunset Sofa" looking across the pool to the ocean..

COVERED GRILLING DECK: OCEANVIEW (10' x 10') with bar counter for four, stainless sink, bar refrigerator along with 3 burner INFRARED grill with amazing hardwood deck.

INFINITY EDGE POOL: ”Las Vegas” style pool with heated whirlpool (seats 12....not kidding....its enormous), waterfall, and Baja Shelf (so you can lie in the pool in 9" of water and work on your Tan !!!!).

The three Hunter ceiling fans (Ground floor) along with ocean breeze (create plenty of airflow) keeps the downstairs very comfortable. In the kitchen we have a desk / work station for controlling the WIFI, SONOS sound system, INTERNET ACCESS, Samsung Tablet (supplied for guests), and charging station.

UPSTAIRS :

MASTER SUITES: Each OCEANVIEW Master suite (with A/C) is 14' x 16' with high (9ft +) arched ceilings and queen 13" pillow top beds. Each Master suite has a bath with two sinks with spacious glass showers. Both master suites open on to a common bamboo covered (shade / rain screen) hardwood deck (16' x 16') and each bedroom has a SONOS WIFI based sound systems linked to Spotify Premium.

3RD BEDROOM: with double bed has full private bath with garden view but is SMALLER than the other two bedrooms but is still comfortable for two.

Locally sourced handmade soap supplied at NO CHARGE. All bedrooms have individual ultra quiet A/C units (and Hunter ceiling fans) that can provide instant cooling on demand.

Bedding and towels: We only use the finest quality cotton towels in all of our bathrooms (EACH bath has 4 bath towels, 2 hand towels, 4 wash cloths, and 2 huge pool / beach towels).

SONOS SOUND SYSTEM: For those of you who have never experienced this sound system be prepared. The system is centrally controlled on a tablet computer in the Kitchen. It enables you to control the volume of every speaker in the house. The system is truly amazing and supplies "crystal clear" music to the entire house via the WIFI network. It is also connected to SPOTIFY Premium.....literally giving you an enormous choice of "Ad free" music. All supplied at no charge.

FREE SERVICES

Maid Service: Once weekly service (3rd or 4th day of your stay) is supplied at no charge for all stays of 7 nights or more. Maid will wash and fold your laundry (up to three loads) upon request.

GARDENER / POOL SERVICE: Pool service and grounds sweeping performed daily (pool every other day) by on site caretaker (he lives 2 properties away) and also supplies 24 hour weekday security.

Did someone say "What about Wildlife ?" Butterflys, Bird Watching (Toucans) and Monkeys can be seen / heard throughout the flower filled grounds !

NEED TO RENT 4WD (we are working on the road but still require 4 WD). The 1 km road (less than 1 mile) to our driveway is in very good condition (mostly concrete) but the driveway currently requires 4WD due to steepness (100 foot section) not due to its condition. It is flat, straight and smooth just a little too steep for two wheel drive. You must specifically request a 4WD VEHICLE.........an AWD vehicle is NOT sufficient......REMEMBER JUST A 5 MINUTE DRIVE TO DOWNTOWN UVITA !!!!!!

When it comes to activities Uvita is the place to be. Within 1 - 20 minutes of the villa there are hikes, ZIP lines, surfing, kayaking, yoga studios, horseback riding, waterfalls, canopy tours, beautiful beaches, ATV Tours, golf course (just 30 minutes) and much more all within minutes from the residence.

BEACH LOVERS

The NICEST and NEAREST beach from the property is roughly 5-6 minutes away. The beach is called HERMOSA and is very nice and swimable and has a lifeguard.

BONUS BONUS BONUS

PLEASE NOTE: All photos in this overview were taken on the property with no enhancements (i.e. telephoto lenses to distort distances). The beach shot is the ACTUAL (amazing) view from our deck at our "Bal Hai Beach Club" facility.

ALSO, no hidden fees with this property for CLEANING etc.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Convenient location, amazing house, attention to details!!!!. We are renting again!

  • 5 of 5

Best VRBO home we have rented. This was our 4th time in Costa Rica in the past 20 months and our 2nd time in Uvita/Dominical. Casa Thai's Location is one of the best in the area while still having views that are spectacular. Whitney is the Owner and he has thought of every detail. Maid service included! Pool is incredible with afternoon shade. Very well equipped with high end cookware. The infrared outdoor grill is perfect for fish.

22 Toucans in the shade tree near the pool!! While you are enjoying your stay do not forget to take Whit up on his offer to visit his beachfront location (Beach Club).

Whit has an honest detailed sheet on the restaurants and is spot on.

Technology - internet connection was incredible for CR. The Sonos throughout was a great treat.

Whit’s other property is the most popular 1 bedroom rental in the area.

Whit deserves 5 stars and puts more effort into his places than any of the corporate managed homes. I’m a landlord and I always try to rent from a local who is present. Management companies always talk a good game but rarely can beat the owner who cares about his properties appearance and the customer experience.

Thank you. The L Family

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

Whit's home is beautiful, clean, comfortable and well stocked. Whit is a fantastic owner....available, hands on and and very knowledgable with good local resources. Uvita is a quaint little town with beautiful beaches, nice people and good food. There are activities nearby. A 4x4 is needed to drive up to the house. The view from the house is amazing; the pool & hot tub were wonderful. Sonos speaker was Great to have & was used often!

Pros:

1. clean,

2. well equipped,

3. sono speaker,

4. safe,

5. beautiful views,

6. close to most everything

Cons:

1. lots of bugs (not the fault of Whit or his home), (not the kind that bite, just annoying)

2. no cable t.v. or live streaming or DVD player (we went during the NBA Playoffs and were unable to watch any games, but did watch Netflix)

Thank you Whit for helping make our 10 year anniversary vacation a wonderful time!! We would definitely return to Costa Rica & to Casa Thai!

Owner's Response: So glad the two of you had such a great time. As to the "cons"......unfortunately Costa Rica has lots of bugs....and always will...at least they don't bite :).....as to "live" TV ....as you know we discussed this in advance and I was very clear that due to the fact that no one (except you) has requested "live" television .......we do not plan to offer this service to our guests. Also, if we did choose to offer this service over 75 % of the stations......including NBA games would be in Spanish. We do offer NETFLIX on our 65" Sharp HDTV. I look forward to your next visit.

Definitely returning!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Thai was amazing. The elevated panoramic views of the ocean and sunset are breathtaking. Each morning we woke to a small flock of Toucans parading from treetop to treetop near the house.

The house is very modern and clean, the bedrooms spacious, and the bathrooms clean and beautiful. The pool and hot tub were perfect after a day of adventuring. The Sonos sound system was a very nice touch. The kitchen had everything you would need. The owner was very knowledgeable and helpful and gave us information on the best restaurants and attractions.

A few thoughts.. You will definitely need a 4WD vehicle to get up and down the hill to the house. The drive from the airport can take 3-4 hours. Purchase any alcohol at the airport duty free store before coming to the property, as it is a lot cheaper. Ask the property owner about his Bali Hai Beach Club about 10 minutes from the house. Definitely try Carlito’s mexican!
