CASA YLANG YLANG - OCEAN VIEW VILLA WITH POOL

Ojochal House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Casa Ylang Ylang is perched high above the blue Pacific, offering splendid ocean and mountain vistas. At one thousand feet up, you will enjoy delightful cooling sea and cooling mountain breezes.

Awaken to toucans raiding the papaya and banana trees. Parrots, hummingbirds, and other wildlife we haven’t totally identified, thrive in the lush tropical foliage.

Several excellent restaurants are located in and around Ojochal, as well as all desired creature comforts. Nearby beaches include lovely Playa Tortuga (within view), Playa Ventanas (with 5 caves), Uvita’s Whale’s Tail, and the Marina Ballena National Park. Within 90 minutes driving are Manuel Antonio (most visited National Park in CR), Dominical (great surfing) and the entire Osa Peninsula experience. Enjoy zip line canopy tours, whale/ dolphin watching, bird watching, kayaking, surfing, horseback riding, sports fishing, etc., or simply cocktails on a choice of verandas as the sun drops below the horizon fifty miles away.

Ojochal de Osa is located along the Costanera Highway 30 minutes north of Palmar Sur Airport. (daily 35 minute flights from San Jose via Naturair or Sansa.) If driving from San Jose, the picturesque trip takes 3 ½ hours.

Costa Rica Mindset:

Yes, there are bugs in CR- but these are kept under control by the breezes and the Gecko patrol. Should you happen to be bothered by bugs/geckos, you might wish to consider an alternative destination.

Driving is not recommended after dark (5:30). Unless your flight arrives in the morning, we suggest you spend your first CR night in the central valley, or along the way.

Warning: You may find yourselves setting an alarm to arise at dawn each day just to absorb ALL of the constant beauty around the remarkable surroundings of this gracious Mediterranean villa. And if you encounter particular problems during your stay, a resourceful English speaking manager resides locally just a phone call away.

A 28 DAY DREAM VACATION...

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ylang Ylang is definitely a place you will enjoy and it is well represented in the photos. It is close enough to the beach to see and hear the breaking waves. You will get some of the best sunset photos from the patio! Surrounded by lush well maintained landscaping with plenty of wildlife, it also has a great pool, nice full kitchen and hi speed internet! What else do you need? The house has everything you might want in an awesome location less than 5 minutes to several great dining choices or small markets. One of the owners was in town to oversee the construction of the guest house and took us out to dinner one night. Nice people! The local property manager Ken is a good guy and very knowledgeable about the area. We spent a month here and have no complaints. We'll be back.

FLAVOR IN THE JUNGLE

  • 4 of 5
My first stay at this house and well worth the experience. I especially liked that the pool was just long enough to do laps and exercises. There is a row of purple flowers along the pool that blooms every day even though they drop their flowers every evening. Perhaps my favorite ritual was the green parrots that fly up the valley before sunset without fail. They fly mostly in pairs and converse all the way. It takes 200 of them about 1/2 hour. They add a special bonus to watching the sun set.

As it turned out, this trip I spent three weeks here alone. It was very comfortable. You can see (and sometimes hear) a few neighbors. This can add to a secure feeling overall. I found it very easy to get used to living here. I cooked almost every day in the well equipped kitchen. The many quality restaurants in the neighborhood could top a perfect day. I really liked (but not limited to) the pate' at Citrus and the passion fruit ice cream at Exotica.

The property manager, Ken Stone is very friendly and helpful. He will introduce you to some great people and Ojochal flavor of life. Ken and Sharon had me over to their home in the river valley for a marvelous pork BBQ. Ken even came and rescued me when I got my truck stuck near the beach. You can find it very easy to make yourself at home here.

As with many properties in this area, you have a few steep hills and curves to navigate. I found a 4x4 a necessity, especially if it rains. This area lends itself to have your own wheels. Some tours will pick you up but like to meet on the main highway. Do the Superman Zipline. I recommend the two Superman rides in one day option. Even the Canopy Zipline was a great day.

The beds are perhaps the most comfortable in all my stays. The house has personality and likability. Fans are all I needed to stay comfortable. The internet worked very well and cell service was decent. Flying insects are rare unless you leave the outside lights on. Then you'll have a good gecko visitation.

This spot allows for a very good combination of private yet social vacationing.

Owner's Response: Curtis, you made a lot of good friends while you were here, who are all looking forward to your returning soon to monitor the development of your newly purchased finca above Uvita. Come get some of those purple petunias to add to your landscaping - they sure bloom their hearts out every day. Thanks for taking such fine care of Casa Ylang Ylang meanwhile. Bien Dia, and hurry back.

WHAT A GREAT VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a vacation place with a view, and that is what we got. Excellent value for money for a good size and relativel well-appointed costa rica rental. Though there are neighbours, they are out of sight, making this casa reasonably private. Ojochal is a great expat town with a number of good restaurants. Great beaches are close by.
Ken is a friendly, available and helpful property manager.

GORGEOUS VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here while touring the Ojochal-Uvita area. The house was a great retreat, but it was a bit of a challenge to get there. Be prepared for typical Costa Rican dirt roads and make sure you have good 4-wheel drive. The drive up and down the mountain is worth it once you see the awesome views of the bay below. This was an extremely relaxing place, which even the locals called tranquil. At night (which arrives around 5PM year round) you can sit in a cooling breeze and listen to the sounds of the nature and not much else.

PARADISE IN THE JUNGLE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it. We were looking for something secluded where we could get away from it all, and we found it. After the first day we had trouble remembering the day and time. Exactly what we wanted. This house is beautiful, perched atop a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean The most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. The town of Ojochal at the bottom of the mountain is charming, & representative of the real Costa Rica. It is basically one main dirt road that runs thru the town, with another road going up the mountain to this and several other houses along the way. The restaurants in Ojochal and the surrounding area are amazing. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 4 WHEEL DRIVE!!! The road leading up to the house is a steep, winding dirt road & can be tricky without 4WD, especially during rainy season. The house is situated in the jungle with banana and papaya trees on the property, with frequent vists from toucans, parrots, hummingbirds, iguanas, lizzards, giant toads,& geckos. The house does not have air conditioning, nor does it really need it. All rooms have numerous sets of double doors and windows that open, along with fans. Once the rooms are open air, there is a constant breeze blowing thru that makes the house very comfortable. We even had to turn the fan off at night on occasion because it got so cool. Especially loved the verandas and decks, where you can sit outside in the rocking chairs and just enjoy the views, take a dip in the pool, or a nap in the hammock. It was a very relaxing trip. While Ojochal is representative of the real Costa Rica, there is a nice sized ex-pat community that lives here, with quite a few Canadians ad Americans. Ken Stone, the local property manager is of great assistance, and there whenever you need him. He is a super nice guy, and a wealth of knowledge about the area, and will help you with anything that you need. There are grocery stores, butcher shops, restaurants, a small police station, etc all located down the mountain within the community of Ojochal, to meet all of your needs. We felt very safe in Ojochal and at the house itself. The people in town are very friendly, always throwing a smile and a wave your way. I would highly recommend Casa Ylang Ylang if you want to get away from it all, experience the real Costa Rica, all while living in paradise. The views are just majestic, and cannot be properly translated into words, other than "Pura Vida". We will be back!

TWO WEEKS IN PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
Having just returned from our two-week stay at CYY, we are tanned and relaxed (sure to be short-lived when the grind re-commences shortly). The property was as presented and is in a great location with wonderful beaches (Playa Tortuga, Playa Uvita, Playa Ventenas, Playa Ballena), and unique restaurants nearby. Exotica and Citrus were our favourite restaurants, and Momma e Pappa was great for casual nite take-out. We enjoyed the villa and the lovely grounds, and the sunsets were breathtaking. Ojochal’s temperatures for our entire stay were 97 – 100 and humid, and the wonderful pool was our salvation!! Our only complaint with the accommodations was there was no A/C in the bedroom. Five minutes after stepping out of the shower, we were both drenched. Sleeping was not comfortable – even with all the doors and windows open, and the overhead fan on high. Suggest adding a unit in the BR for future guests’ comfort ? Also – the bedroom linens could be nicer and of better quality. The coffee maker was partially broken, as the espresso maker did not work; however, we made drip coffee each morning so got our fix.
You won’t need an alarm clock here! There is a flock of hundreds of parrots that come to the trees each morning around 5:00 a.m., making their lovely parrot sounds. They return each evening before sunset. We also saw what resembled mini-macaws. Unfortunately, not a monkey in site. It was early to bed and early to rise, as the sun and water wore us out.
Ojochal is a village with quite an international flair. We met lovely people from Canada and Europe: for those of you researching for retirement - everyone we spoke with loved living in CR. Adjusting to the horrible off-road conditions and steep inclines was a challenge, but certainly got the adrenaline pumping. You MUST have a 4W to navigate these roads. Main highways are in great shape, however.
Saving the best for last, the property manager, Ken Stone, was a doll. Very personable and helpful, and we rested assured knowing he was only a phone call away should we require his assistance in any matter. We very much enjoyed his company. (Of course he paid me to say this …. LOL … just kidding, Ken!!)
Wonderful, authentic experience all in all. We came away with great memories, new friends, and are already planning our trip for next year. ?Thank you Diane, and Ken.
