Overview

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.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We echo everything written by our friend, Theresa K. What an incredible week and view from this "top of the world" oasis! The activities to experience in the area abound, e.g, snorkeling, zip-lining, beachcombing, boating, etc. The quality of the restaurants rival any in Europe...compliments of the large expat community of Americans, Canadians, and Europeans. The evenings on the terrace with magnificent sunsets and cool mornings for breakfast defined tranquility and peace. To ensure we had the best possible experience, Ken Stone (property manager) attended to every question and request. In addition, Rick and Diane (owners) were visiting the area and what a privilege to meet them! Rick even provided a personal e-mail with things to do/places to see while in San Jose before returning home. We simply cannot offer enough superlatives about the home and location...or Rick, Diane, and Ken, whom we now call friends. Most certainly, we will return! Thanks "friends"....

Ojochal, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

The two bedroom property was located on the side of a small mountain with a beautiful pool and view of the Pacific. The property was clean and had all the things needed to relax and enjoy the Costa Rican scenery. The property manager was friendly and helpful and the property owners were on sight and also friendly and helpful. We went with another couple and had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. We took the costal highway to the property which was a good road with occasional accidents and traffic slow downs. On returning to San Jose, we took the mountain highway which was also a good road and less congested. We would go back again if the opportunity ever presented itself and even got a realtor and went property shopping one day. The area has a lot of ex pats and several great five star restaurants and the overall experience was wonderful.

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Costa Rica and this home could not have been any better! We traveled with another couple and the 4 of us had a wonderful time. The home is spacious with all the conveniences of home, except air conditioning, but fans provided made sleeping comfortable. There's always a breeze, so the house remained comfortable as well as the terrace. We certainly were spoiled having breakfast on the terrace every day and the view is beyond breathtaking! The owners and Ken, the property manager, were so gracious and so helpful. They willing shared their knowledge of the area and local restaurants (which are fabulous, by the way). We loved that it wasn't "touristy" with crowds of people everywhere. I highly recommend Casa Ylang Ylang if you're interested in relaxing and enjoy being away from it all. You'll not find a more beautiful vacation home with the special treatment provided by the owners and Ken. We certainly plan to return as soon as we can! Thank you, Diane, Rick, and Ken for your hospitality. It truly was a trip of a lifetime!

Great view, lovely little village

  • 5 of 5

Truly a little slice of paradise. It was our first time in Costa Rica - our daughter was working at Reserva Playa Tortuga and we wanted to visit. Casa Ylang Ylang is exactly as described, great views, well equipped kitchen, roomy. Favorite spot was the rocking chairs on the front porch. We visited Dominical, Manuel Antonio and hiked local trails. Ken Stone, local manager, did a great job welcoming us. We had a 4 wheel drive and had no problems getting around. Our friends rented a car and managed the drive up to the house with no problems. I would not recommend arriving at night. If we return to this area, we would stay here again.

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.

Pura Vida

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.
