Morpho Eco Retreat is an eco-friendly, designed villa perched above the jungle valley. The villa has established itself as a unique vacation rental in the southern area of Costa Rica due to its unusual design and great privacy.
This unique estate, situated on four acres, just 10 minutes up the mountain from the town of Uvita, is ideal for those who seek modern comfort, an outdoor lifestyle, and amazing views.
Highlights of the property include onsite river access with a waterfall and swimming hole within walking distance, amazing views of the Whale's Tail National Park, and an intimate outdoor area that attracts many species of birds and butterflies. The expansive 180-degree view of the Whale's Tail with the Pacific Ocean as its backdrop, is visible upon arrival. The main deck, which functions as the outdoor dining area, offers daily opportunities for bird-watching and the westward view offers a wonderful vantage point of Cano Island, one of the finest destinations for snorkeling and scuba diving in Costa Rica.
Morpho Eco Retreat was designed by Los Angeles- based architect, James Meraz.
Limited environmental impact and the utilization of natural, locally-sourced materials were adhered to throughout the construction process. Many types of wood, native to Costa Rica, were used on the custom interior furnishings.
The result is a unique, modern two bedroom / two bathroom villa, accompanied by a separate one bedroom / one bathroom guesthouse set below, in the lush jungle.

The main house comfortably accommodates six while the guesthouse sleeps four... making this a perfect option for larger groups as well.
When viewed from above, the inward-facing roof design of the main villa evokes a butterfly-in-flight. The name, Morpho Eco Retreat, was derived from the Blue Morpho, one of the most beautiful butterflies in Costa Rica.
The primary residence includes a master bedroom, with a king bed set against a dramatic teak headboard which camouflages the master closet. Along with an en-suite bathroom that includes a double shower as well as his & her sinks, the area is a perfect refuge at the end of the day.
The guest bedroom, with its design oriented bunk-wall, offers ample sleeping room for four adults or children. Each sleeping compartment offers its own window, reading light and outlet for charging. The room has its own en-suite bathroom as well, with a bathtub and shower.
All rooms, with their high ceilings, ample windows and sliding doors with deck access, and upper wall-screens... provide ventilation via the ample, afternoon breezes, keeping the rooms airy throughout the day.

Functioning as an anchor for the two en-suites, is a lovely, open-concept great room. With its custom designed, modern kitchen that includes an eat-at-island, cooking and entertaining has never been easier! The kitchen area looks directly onto the living area, promoting conversation and participation from guests. All of the furnishings were custom built on site. All the kitchen appliances-refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave and dishwasher, etc... are brand new and the kitchen is well stocked with dinnerware for the next gathering and basic staples.
If you enjoy cooking outdoors, there is a gas barbecue located downstairs, next to the grassy garden, as well.

Step down the covered, steel staircase, and you are immersed in lush jungle, a forest of fern palms greats you as you arrive at the guest 'Casita'.
This residence is a self-contained - 500 sqft. house that boasts one bedroom with a queen bed and a full-size pullout futon in the open concept living area.
There is also a fully stocked kitchen, complete with refrigerator, stove & oven, coffee maker. There is an indoor table that seats four as well as a covered, 285sqft, dining area located outside that overlooks the ocean as well as the jungle valley below. The intimate setting, offers privacy as well as a very unique, outdoor, rain shower experience.
Perfect, jungle hideaway for couples or additional guests with young children... the casita sleeps four people comfortably. The sounds of the river will lull you to sleep!

Morpho's vicinity to the town of Uvita offers access to two supermarkets, two banks, many restaurants and all kinds of tour operators that offer a wide variety of of off-site activities during the day. Surfing & SUP lessons, kayaking trips to the mangroves, horseback riding on the beach, waterfall & bird-watching hikes, diving & snorkeling, beautiful- deserted beaches, as well as zip-lining tours, just to name a few!

A stay at Morpho Eco retreat beckons with the sights and sounds of nature from the moment you arrive.

Area Information
One of the best aspects of the house is its location.

There are two supermarkets in Uvita to purchase all your groceries. When you want to go out and eat, there are fantastic options in both Dominical and Ojochal, each located 20 minutes from the house. Ballena National Park, home to the famous Whale's Tail, is just 15 minutes away. Furthermore, there are great beaches for surfing (Dominical, Dominicalito and Playa Hermosa) and relaxing (Playa Ventanas, Playa Ballena) within a short drive of the property. The town of Uvita also has its own popular waterfall that's right along on the road to the house.
