Jerry M. Glogowski purchased this house in 2002
A place to relax and enjoy all that the Costa Rica rain forest has to offer. All the comforts of home and just a short drive to the beaches and town.
Our stay was enjoyable. The house and property were great.
There were a few hiccups, but I think you knew about both. It really didn't bother us or our feelings about the place. The only recommendation we would suggest for future visitors is, a heads up about the roads to the house. We would definitely get an all wheel/ four wheel drive vehicle for this time of year (rainy/low season) and for this location. Maybe people just presume this but we didn't know and it was a challenge as far as the driving conditions. Other than that we enjoyed the place. It was an awsome location and we would definitely stay there again.
Cheers and we hope you have had a nice holiday season.

We stayed here at the end of June into July. I am hesitant to share our experience with anyone because we do not want it to become spoiled. His house is on the crest of a hill that is surrounded by more mountains. The entire property was private and clean. The property was abundant with flora and fauna. Everyday was a new experience. We were far away from the really busy areas of Costa Rica(WE WERE HAPPY ABOUT THAT). On the other hand, we were close enough to places that we could go on day trip after day trip and only be in the car for an hour or less each way. This place is great for a family with small children. We loved the pool, the upstairs porch/deck, grill, showers (outside and in), proximity to many beaches, the long gravel road leading up to our house (that I ran on everyday) where we saw wildlife every day, food, the friendly children. We traveled here during the World Cup and loved the spirit of the Costa Ricans. We felt very safe. We shifted away from our east coast mentality and enjoyed Pura Vida from the moment we stepped onto this property. Thanks Jerry! We will be back (if you will have us!). Noelle, Steve, Miles & Laila.
My husband and I have travelled extensively through Costa Rica since the early '90's. We discovered Ojochal 4 years ago and have returned every winter to escape the cold in Canada. We always rent on "Finca Maranon" where this house is located due to the beauty of the location and the proximity to the beautiful, practically deserted beaches nearby. This house is also located close to many fabulous restaurants which rival anything I've tried in North America. The house is absolutely gorgeous. There are 3 bedrooms in total-- 2 bedrooms, each with en suite on the ground level--perfect for 2 couples or a family. But the crowning jewel is the newly constructed master suite upstairs with en suite and private, spacious deck overlooking the jungle. The bedroom has huge windows on 3 sides taking in the most stunning mountain and jungle views --not in my wildest dreams could I have asked for a more perfect space to greet the morning or fall into a restful slumber at night. The pool is lovely, and the gazebo, set across the lawn, offers glorious mountain views and privacy away from others, should you need it. On a final note, I am a walker and enjoyed an early morning walk into the village of Ojochal daily. What a beautiful road leading down from the house--ferns dripping down the side embankments, delphinium blue morpho butterflies flitting by and the most amazing birdsong!! It doesn't get closer to paradise than this!!! We will return!!!
My family and I stayed here for one month over the holidays. This house is very spacious and has a great outdoor sitting area where we spent most of our time. The gazebo at the back is nice for view the monkey's (visited us daily in Dec). It got quite a bit warmer in Jan., and we did not see them as much then. The pool was great for cooling off, as well the bedrooms offered A/C. This spot is very private and although not within comfortable walking distance to restaurants it was about a 5 minute drive down. Jenell was a huge help in recommending local beaches and restaurants. She was always available via email if we had any problems. The wifi signal is a bit weak, but sufficient.
The beaches nearby were stunning! Our favorite was Ventanas with the caves and great swimming for the kids. We also loved the restaurant Villa Leonor which offered delicious food and access to the beach with your meal (rather than the park entrance fee). We did our food shopping in Uvita (about 10-15 minute drive), but there was a small mini-super in Ojochal. If you are looking for peace and quite (other than the Toucans and howlers), and an amazing view to wake up to each morning this house is the one! A great value!
What better time to write a review than while I am still here and everything is fresh in my mind. After almost a month we leave [reluctantly] in two days. The stay here has been completely as advertised, Jerry the owner, has done a remarkable job of having absolutely anything and everything that you could possibly need or want while staying here.
We have travelled considerably, and it is refreshing to find a place where everything works and was immaculately clean upon our arrival. The cleanliness is thanks to the property manager, Jenell and her staff...what a quality group. Jenell was fantastic in her job, she was always immediately available to respond to any needs or questions, she even baked a cake...and later stopped by with some cinnamon rolls for us. She and her husband John have a plethera of historical knowledge on the area and were a pleasure to spend time with.
The house itself is great, very roomy, lots of ceiling fans [that you need], A/C in the bedrooms, pool is fantastic, has SKY TV and great internet. My computer worked fine, a Majic Jack is nice to have for calling back to the states for free [and it worked fine]. There were some very minor issues with power outages, but they never lasted long and the utility company responded well. Part of the issue is we are here in the beginning of the rainy season, so that contributes to some of the power problems.
There are several really good restaurants in the nearby area, don't be deceived by the exterior appearances, the sanitary conditions in these facilities is remarkable, and the owners and staff some of the friendliest in the world. You can eat gourmet and spend $30 - $50/ea or go "Tico" and have their famous Casados [a complete meal of fish, chicken or beef, rice, black beans, salad, pasta in tomato sauce and a slice of plantain] for $4 - $6. I highly recommend Mamma e Papa's for Italian & pizza, Citrus is a classy place and for a superb filet mignon or just a burger [and the absolute best fries] stop at the Roadhouse.
I was surprised at the lack of insects at the house, of course there are multitudes of small, green "house geckos", which are totally harmless and do a great job of keeping the insect population at bay. The toucans will be your alarm clock every morning...early, and if you're lucky you will hear [and see] the howler monkeys on their way to wherever, along with some white faced.
You will enjoy your stay...and tell Jerry and/or Jenell, Danny and Carol sent you.
This area of the country really speaks to us. This is a great area of the world to hide away for a while. Our stay at the casa was our second. This year we stayed the whole month of August. Four blissful weeks of just me, my husband and our two girls.
The inground pool is wonderful and we spent most of our time at home this year. The house is air conditioned in the bedrooms so when it gets too hot there is relief. The water is hot and the kitchen has everything you need to cook gourmet meals. Jenell the caretaker I have come to think of as a friend and we are already talking about coming back next year.
If you want to get off the grid this is the place to go. However, Jerry the owner is more than happy to provide you with all the conveniences of wi-fi, tv and music. He has a great music collection and lots of movies to watch so you never really need to leave the house. Except when your need the beach or food! At the risk of upping the competition I'll also add Jerry's rental prices are very fair and compared to neighboring houses without a doubt the best deal in town!
Many thanks to Jerry and Jenell for your hospitality and our home away from home. We will be back again.
Just to mention Jenell the manager of the Casa de Tropicale... Helpful , gentle always there when we need her and gives lots of tips to visit Costa Rica... Great Person. Thank you Jenell
