Feeling very pleased with myself for choosing this particular rental for our recent 5 night stay in Uvita! The property is actually in the little residential community of Bahia, just a short 1km cycle or drive from the main road that cuts through Uvita with its bank, supermarket and other shops, but just a 5 min walk or two min cycle to the beach and several little local restaurants and bars. It is situated at the end of a quiet lane, very private with open fields and forest on one side which was perfect as each morning we sat on the side deck and watched the many birds flitting back and forth. The cabina is so well equipped and comfortable, we had everything we needed inc wifi and it is very tastefully decorated. The deck which extends to the back looks out onto a small private pool and has a garden with dining area and hammock, banana and papaya trees... just idyllic. Every night after sunset we took a long cooling swim and enjoyed the night sky full of twinkling stars. We took up the offer of using the bikes that the owner rents out and we were happy to scoot around Bahia although not confident enough to face the road up to the main part of Uvita. This is a quaint and quiet little community, close to an exceptional beach with various activities on the doorstep. A particular recommendation is the restaurant Sabor Espanyol...so good we ate there twice!

If we are ever lucky enough to return to Costa Rica we will definately stay here again!!

Enjoyed everything about this rental. The pool was a savior for me as the weather was hot and humid. We are used to dry, desert heat. The one added attraction was the berry tree just outside of our side porch. I guess we hit it just right for the berries because all kinds of wildlife came to the tree. We had colorful birds daily, iguanas of all sizes and monkeys. It was just the greatest! My husband didn't want to leave the porch. Location was great and Uvita is a wonderful little village. The rain shower was also a great addition. Gosh, I just want to go back tomorrow. Rent this little cabin and you won't be disappointed. A treasure.

Ocean Melody was the perfect private escape. Sitting on the porch every evening was the perfect end to a day. The pool was an added bonus. We will certainly be back!

It was a great experience be in ocean melody, from there we saw many kind of animals, monkey and birds, I loved to be in the swimming pool, very private place, Massi one of the owners, very kind person always ready to answer our questions or concerns, we have a great time with my boyfriend, we really enjoy the cabin, we felt at home. I highly recommend for a romantic gateway. It was more than we expected for that price.

“Comfortable, well-equipped cabin at the edge of the animal kingdom”

My girlfriend and I had the good fortune to stay at the Ocean Melody for 5 nights during the start of the area's rainy season in May 2014. The property is within shouting distance of its neighbours but thanks to clever landscaping it is mostly invisible to those neighbours, affording guests with a great deal of sunny privacy. We were pleasantly serenaded by monkeys, crickets and frogs throughout our stay, reminding us of our place in the cycle of nature. The owners are environmentally responsible and provided means for efficient recycling of all of our garbage items. All of our amenities (A/C, fans, wifi, TV, hot water, shower, pool, lights, gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, fridge, etc) were clean and in perfect working condition. The owner, Massi, was quick to respond helpfully on the one occasion when we had a question.

The outdoor and indoor cabin furniture is beautiful, mobile and sturdy. By stacking a couple of the outdoor stools, I was able to introduce a temporary working desk into our air-conditioned bedroom (which looks out over the pool and the forest beyond). This provided me with a comfortable way to work on my laptop while still enjoying the air conditioning and other benefits of the cabin.

Tip #1: as this is a one-story cabin at the edge of a national park, we found it helpful to turn most of our cabin lights off at night in order to avoid attracting attention from the tiny creatures of the air. I would also recommend the use of a natural (e.g. lemon eucalyptus-based) insect repellant once in the day and once at night to ensure a sound sleep.

Tip #2: as other reviewers have mentioned, we found it was worth it to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle and take advantage of the nearby world-class restaurants (e.g. 20 minutes down the highway in Ojochal), which are often in secluded "off-road" locations.

Tip #3. You really have to try the swimming pool, it's great and not just for show!

Tip #4. Familiarize yourself with the exact landmarks starting at the main highway to arrive at the cabin if you will be leaving and returning at night.

Our stay at Ocean Melody was peaceful and highly memorable for us and we look forward to a return visit.
