With its proximity to remarkable beaches, mountainous forests, and abundant wildlife, this home, situated high above Costa Rica's South Central coast, is the perfect tropical getaway. The area hasn’t been overrun by tourists just yet, allowing you to enjoy your own slice of the shoreline as you immerse yourself in the Costa Rican culture. The mixture of ocean and jungle make this spot the perfect location for a multitude of outdoor activities including swimming, bird watching, kayaking, and hiking.
In this new 3-bedroom home, you can enjoy this Costa Rican paradise with all the comforts of home. Sitting at an altitude of approximately 1500 feet, you’ll experience cooling breezes you wouldn’t get at a lower altitude. Just below the cloud line, this property offers an unobstructed view of the breathtaking scenery. The house is well appointed providing incredible views from every room. Relax next to the home’s private pool as you gaze over the skyline, listening to the sounds of the jungle (including monkeys, toucans, and hawks!) An outdoor shower right outside the master bedroom gives you the opportunity to rinse off underneath the stars.
With this home’s full kitchen, you can cook a meal for your group and enjoy it out on the patio as you watch the sun set over the ocean. Situated outside of the town of Ojochal, this spot is perfect for stargazing. The pool has been constructed with glow in the dark tiles allowing you to enjoy the stars above while swimming in a pool of stars below. During the day you can enjoy bird-watching. At this altitude, you can often see the birds from above as they dive and soar. Watching the Swallow-tailed Kites glide through the valley is truly awe inspiring.
The master bedroom is furnished with a king-sized bed and plenty of windows so you can wake up to unbelievable mountain and ocean views. The property also has a second bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a third room with a pull out couch giving you plenty of space for your whole group. With a flat-screen TV, DVD player, and Wireless Internet, you won’t feel disconnected while staying in this tropical wonderland. At this property, you also have the option for housekeeping and concierge service for an additional fee. You’ll truly feel like royalty during your stay.
The views from the home are amazing and ever changing. Watch sunsets over the Pacific, mountain and jungle vistas and enjoy an eagles eye views of the town of Ojochal, the Terraba River mouth and the Pacific Coast, including the three small islands known as Las Tres Hermanas or "Three Sisters". Twice per year, Humpback whales migrate back to this area, located within Marino Ballena National Park, to breed. Watch them as they swim and play around Ballena Island and Tres Hermanas. There is also a small river that runs along the side of the property, and during the "Green Season", you can hear the relaxing sounds of the water rushing down the mountain.
If you can manage to tear yourself away from this fascinating property, the area offers a multitude of activities. Ojochal and Costa Rica’s south central Pacific region have plenty of attractions for visitors. Scuba diving is often a favored pastime which gives visitors a chance to experience the wildlife up close; swim with dolphins, whales, sea turtles, and plenty of fish. Boat tours also provide an excellent opportunity to view the local wildlife. In addition, the area offers excellent fishing opportunities. When you aren’t in the mood to cook your own meals, enjoy one of the area’s many fine restaurants. This is the perfect place to get away from it all. Can't you just imagine yourself lounging by the pool, the ocean breezes gently blowing, exotic birds, monkeys and other sounds of the jungle providing a whispered symphony as you gaze out at the spectacular panorama below? Book this home today to experience the beauty that is the "pure life" of Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

The house is perfectly designed, open layout. Maria & Randy greeted us with wonderful hospitality. They are very professional. The kitchen was exceptionally well stocked. Watching the sunset over the ocean every night was a delight. So was relaxing in their pool (after a day at the beach ) We also got a full moon and clear skies for star gazing. Toucans and hummingbirds visited regularly.
What a location! Breath taking views overlooking the ocean with daily nature visits: hawks, hummingbirds, blue morphos, toucans,... all this in the comfort of a great north American house.
What a pleasure to cook freshly caught fish in a chef's kitchen. Be sure to be home to enjoy the breathtaking sun sets to the sound of the howler monkeys. While a 4x4 is necessary, the road leading to the house is very safe and will offer great sight seeing look up points on the way.
We spent 3 weeks in the home and appreciated its comfortable beds, seating areas and pool.
Hoping for a return visit.
This place is not to be missed. Its owners were very helpful and contributed to our perfect stay.
