Our villa has all of the design and style of a resort while maintaining the feel of a family home. The pool deck is beautifully landscaped with palm trees and tropical plants. There are three bedrooms, all with queen size beds, a loft bedroom with queen size futon, two and a half bathrooms, two seating areas, an over sized outdoor terrace and a completely modern kitchen complete with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a separate prep area.
Safety and ease of access is a primary concern for home renters. Our house has a security gate with an intercom and lights at street level. A paved driveway makes the ascent easy. There is parking for three vehicles.
About Casa Pajaro -
Newly built in late 2007. Nestled on top of a hill, the tree lined backyard is home to countless birds, butterflies, sloth's and the occasional troop of Howler and White Faced Capuchin Monkeys.
The master bedroom has a magnificent view that makes getting out of bed hard to do. The over sized en-suite has a large shower with a rain shower head. Dual sinks give extra room and the closets allow for ample storage of personal items.
The main living room cupola has a beautifully illuminated 30 foot ceiling. A second outdoor seating area has a comfy couch and chair if you prefer some quiet time to read.
South and Central American art decorates the house with a primitive style featuring Boruca masks, Ecuadorian weavings, and Nicaraguan oil paintings combine with wooden geckos to bring surprise and delight.
Natural airflow allows for a beautiful breeze off the ocean during the day and the cooling air from the mountains at night. No air conditioning is needed but ample ceiling fans are outfitted in every room. The breezes are often so strong that candles will not stay lit on the covered terrace.
The pool is surrounded by tropical plants, palm trees and lounge chairs. It is a great place to sit out to watch the sun set over the Pacific or catch some sunshine. There is an outdoor shower with lots of privacy.
To quote our past guest, Karl E., ' The outdoor dining area was remarkable. The patio and pool area was very nice and exceeded our expectations. The property was well maintained and the listing description was accurate. We found that the home and the views were even nicer than that reflected in the listing photos.'
Why pick the Ojochal area?
The Southern Pacific zone is often referred to as the 'Big Sur' of Costa Rica, with a coastal range featuring some of the most beautiful, virgin rain forests in the country. It is an enchanting oasis with beautiful beaches literally one after another. Playa Dominical, Playa Hermosa, Playa Uvita, Ballena National Marino Park, Playa Pinuela, and Playa Ventana. Each one is unique. For example, Ventana has sea caves that are passable at low tide.
The Ojochal / Ventanas area is 30 minutes south of Dominical. It is a three hour drive from San Jose International Airport and just 30 minutes north of the local airport of Palmar Sur (PMZ) . Quepos / Manuel Antonio is about one hour north of Casa Pajaro. Ojochal has many great restaurants and bars, lovely grocery stores in Uvita, wine store, and surf board rentals. The real reason to come to this part of Costa Rica though is to enjoy unspoiled beaches, nature at it's most pristine, and to kick back and disconnect.
The Tico Times, the weekly English language newspaper called the Southern Zone the last frontier. While that is true, you don’t have to give up the comforts of a resort just to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. A stay at Casa Pajaro gives you best of all worlds.
