My husband and I stayed at Casa Parrot Hill in Ojochal, Costa Rica in November of 2009. It was our first trip to beautiful Costa Rica. We really enjoyed the excitement of San Jose which was brilliantly lit up for the holidays. When we arrived at Casa Parrot Hill, we felt like we were entering Paradise. Mother Nature is at her best here: the jungle, beautiful tropical birds, wildlife, lush fruit and floral plantings. The property is private and has a great floorplan with a bedroom and bath at opposite ends of the house so it is great to share with another couple. The house is well furnished, very nicely decorated, and comfortable. The private pool area was magnificent with beautiful views surrounding you, and it was well kept, clean and very refreshing. The local food is tasty and reasonable. You are close to excellent Pacific beaches and not far from remote indigenous villages. This home is close to it all yet away from it all. We would definitely give Casa Parrot Hill 5 stars.
