SPECTACULAR OCEAN-VIEW MEDITERRANEAN VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL

Playa Tortuga Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

This ocean-view villa has breathtaking views of the ocean to the front, and the lush rainforest to the rear and sides. Its name is Canto Del Mar (Song of the Sea, Ridge of the Sea) because you can hear the roar of the ocean every night as the waves rush in. It is located at the very end of a beautiful ridge jutting out into the sea, about 300 feet above the ocean, so the home is far cooler and breezier than anything below. Just minutes from the beach! Less than five-minute drive from beach access points to about five beautiful unspoiled beaches, each with its unique character, some with sea caves. This is a newly constructed, spacious two-story furnished home, where you and your friends/family can bask in the luxury of having your own PRIVATE swimming pool, large covered and uncovered patio areas, and covered balcony. No neighbors in sight! Beautiful ocean views from top and bottom floors and from pool. (home is nearly 3000 square feet, plus 1000 sf patio space).

Convenient and Secluded!: When you’re at the house, at the end of Los Loros ridge, surrounded by toucans, parrots, hawks, eagles and monkeys, you will be in the middle of secluded rainforest, with scarcely any civilization in view. As you watch the wildlife, and see and listen to the breaking surf, you will feel like you are hundreds of miles away from everything.

However, this is a great, convenient location, less than one km off of Costanera highway, very near lots of great gourmet international restaurants (French, Italian, German, Swiss, Indonesian, Estonian . . . ), just minutes from grocery stores and other shopping in Ojochal and Uvita, and a short drive away from the best surfing in Dominical, and many wildlife parks and attractions.

Local Property Manager Minutes From the House!: The local property manager Steve is located just minutes away from the house. He will greet you, show you to the house, make sure that you are comfortable and familiar with your surroundings, then continue to do everything possible to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. He can assist you with booking tours, rental cars, advance or forward travel arrangements, as well as handling any questions or problems that could arise during your stay.

This is sure to be an experience that you will never forget.

About Owner

I built this beautiful home with a talented local architect and general contractor, completing it in 2009. I'm from New Orleans, and completely fell in love with this part of Costa Rica about fifteen years ago.

Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why Owner chose Playa Tortuga

This villa is surrounded by jungle and ocean, so it's entirely peaceful and secluded, but also incredibly close and convenient to everything. The jungle hides the few nearby homes from view, so you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. But it's only a five minute drive from the main thoroughfare, and close and convenient to all restaurants, attractions, amenities. It also offers luxury at a bargain price. Why stay in a cramped hotel room or little cabina for the same price when you can have this entire villa with its crystal-clear swimming pool all to yourselves?

Great Place, View, Location, and Price

  • 5 of 5
This home is ideally located for privacy with a great view of the ocean shoreline. Just a 5-minute drive into town for groceries, pizza, beach, and more. The pool is perfect for relaxing after a day at the beach or just hanging-out at the house. The upstairs bedroom and balcony are incredibly romantic, and the panoramic view is breathtaking. We had a great time and look forward to coming back soon!

Rural Retreat in Exceptional Locale

  • 4 of 5
Great house with beautiful vistas, decks and awesome pool. Your descriptions and details of local (world class) eateries were quite helpful. Citris and Mama Y Papas were our favourite Ojachal restaurants. Loved swimming at the Whale Tail in Uvita. Also swam in surf at Playa Tortuga (just below home) and explored the caves. Easy drive up to San Manuel Antonio - great up close and personal with local fauna. We greatly appreciated the rural feel and out of the way location of your home. The tourist scene is not our style. Enjoyed working on our Spanish and did not have any difficulties. Your pool was an essential part of every day and this south Pacific location in Costa Rica is ideal. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Private jungle retreat

  • 4 of 5
The location is perfect. Ventanas beach 5 minutes away. All the best restaurants are 5 minutes away yet you are tucked away in nature. On one early morning we saw 8 Howler monkeys go by in the trees within 100ft of the house. Daily we saw chesnut mandibled toucans, great kiskadees, golden hooded tanagers, Cherries tanagers, blue gray tanagers, hummingbirds and more. One day a very large Iguana in a nearby tree. Blue Morphos while driving up the laneway almost every day we went out. One thing I did like too was seeing the ocean and listening to the crashing waves. I am in the area every year. A first at Karens, but not, probably my last.

Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here before and it's just as great. The pool is always in the sun. The landscaping is gorgeous. The Villa is very comfortable. Close to the beach, the waterfalls, the jungle, Ballena Beach Club, the great restaurants in Ojachal, and the Lookout Hotel which has a great restaurant as well. It's just down the hill. We miss the warm weather and Sunshine.

Tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house from the moment we walked in. All the wood work, decoration and pool.
Stayed 6 days and did not want to leave.
After exploring the area we came back "home" and did more exploring around the house.
The pool was great; we used it every day several times.
We did our own cooking for most of the time; fresh fish from local fisherman was a treat.
Mornings on the balcony with cup of coffee; dinners downstairs by the pool; what else could we wish for?
Karen for very helpful and her welcome letter gave us all the details about the area and restaurants we needed.
Thank you, we would love to come back.

Our stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5
> We had a fabulous time with almost too many wows to list, the house is just gorgeous in terms of the location, the views, the pool and the beautiful design of it
> The weather was just perfect with perfect temperature in the day and the evening. We loved the area especially Ojochal . We enjoyed meals out namely Mama Papa,s, Le Bistro and Hotel Gaia restaurant, we also dined in numerous soda bars which were perfect places to pass the time away in a relaxed atmosphere. The Tico's are very friendly!, it was a complete contrast to previous family Christmas time but we all loved it.
>
> We had private surfing lesson with Uvita surf school and we all managed to get surfing, we even hired boards on an other day in Dominical to work on our new found skills, We went horse riding to the waterfalls stopping at Don Lulus for Breakfast and lunch, this was an excellent day, we went whale and dolphin watching at Uvita and included snorkelling , we didn't find whales but fantastic show from about a dozen dolphins who swam along with us and gave us a show. The final organized day we did was to OSA canopy tour, this again was fantastic and a must for anyone.
>
> The rest of our time we spent at the beach, relaxing at the house, shopping in gift shops and generally enjoying the area
> Thanks very much for a great accommodation and we would not hesitate to return if we get back to Costa Rica which we most definitely will some day, hopefully soon, next time hopefully longer!!!!

I first started coming to this beautiful part of Costa Rica ten years ago, and fell in love with the natural secluded surroundings, the gorgeous beaches, and the teeming wildlife. I don't think that there is any part of Costa Rica that quite compares with the Southern Pacific. Ojochal is a charming rustic village containing gourmet European restaurants in the jungle. Uvitia is the nearest larger town, containing banks, grocery store, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Dominical is a surfers' paradise. Fun Hip village for surfers and those who like to watch them, Great beach!

Other Activities: Kayaking, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa
