Holiday Rental House
The Costa Ballena, or Whale's Coast, is one of the coolest spots in Costa Rica. This beautiful home features the best view of the Whale's Tail in the Southern Zone and enjoys continuous fresh breezes. In addition to the awe-inspiring view, the benefits of being up in the mountains include a microclimate that is about 10 degrees cooler than in town and on the beach, and few biting insects, as we are above the 'bugline'. You will be serenaded daily by a wide variety of birds, monkeys and rainforest critters. Open the doors wide and enjoy indoor/outdoor living with the best view of the Whale's Tail! As if the home, the views and the nature around you aren't enough, our guests rave about the personalized guest service that we can provide!
