IDEAL TROPICAL VACATION SPOT FOR LARGE GROUPS OR A ROMANTIC GET-A-WAY

Ojochal de Osa Villa Rental Photos and Description

Casa Vista Grande and casitas is located just south of Uvita, off the main coastal highway on the Southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The property is situated facing south-south-west at an elevation of 1050 feet providing a spectacular 270 degree view of the Pacific Ocean, Osa peninsula and Southern Talamancan mountain range.

This well appointed home has flat screen TV's, granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms, natural stone floors, WiFi internet signal, satellite SkyTV and secure electronic gate. A full time Spanish speaking caretaker lives on site. The property manager speaks English, Spanish and Japanese and is just next door.

My name is Naomi Geer. I am the manager and neighbor of this magnificent property. I have been living in Costa Rica for nine years with my family. My main occupation is running a small not-for-profit bilingual school, Escuela Verde Costa Ballena.. I speak English, Spanish and Japanese.

Naomi Geer purchased this villa in 2008

Casa Vista Grande and Casitas is one of the very few properties able to accommodate a large group along Costa Ballena. The lay-out allows for plenty of privacy for all, and large outdoor gathering places for groups as well. This secluded spot close to the best restaurants of Ojochal, and nearby all water activities, saltwater and fresh, has one of the best views along the entire coast.

Casa Vista Grande and Casitas is a tropical paradise. The open spaces, views and local decorations make for a stunning overall presentation. Local hardwood dining tables and the wood furniture throughout the houses are beautiful pieces. The natural stone floors, above the counter sinks and local accents are all part of the beautiful natural decor of the house. Outdoor showers are also a favorite.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE FLAVOR OF THE LOCAL CULTURE WHILE SOAKING IN THE BEAUTY OF COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
With guidance & advice from the founder of Rock Canyon High School’s sister school, Escuela Verde, you can plan a personalized vacation with family and friends to truly find the “pure vida.”

This experience was so much more than just going to the standard resort. You really could experience the country and enjoy the people in a safe and guided way.

Our own family trip included zip-lining through the rainforest, snorkeling with tons of beautiful fish, deep sea fishing, hiking to waterfalls and spa services right on the patio of the house over looking the rain forest & ocean.

The property is large enough to accommodate a big group. With the main house and all the separate casitas, the property gives everyone privacy along with the fun of being together. The pool with the covered patio & grill area was our favorite with the view being breathtaking.

We followed the recommendations for local restaurants, and they were terrific. But the highlight of our meals was having the staff cook a local Costa Rican dinner for us right at the house. The food was delicious!

The memories and time together with our family & friends will truly always be priceless to us!

THE MOST SPECTACULAR PLACE IN THE WORLD!

  • 5 of 5
This was by far my best vacation that I've ever been on! The view from the house overlooking the ocean and the howler monkey alarm every morning was one of the highlights, swimming in the ocean and splashing around in the caves was something new and exciting. Zip lining, swimming in waterfalls, watching the marmosets at the house, jumping off the 2nd floor balcony into the main pool, seeing majestic blue butterflies on our travels to the house, eating authentic Costa Rica food, relaxing on the beautiful deck at the house, the local people are all so sweet, Cano island and snorkeling was another highlight, the fish are just spectacular! And on and on...... When I look at videos and pics of this trip it brings tears to my eyes because it was a very memorable trip. Naomi is a wealth of information on anything you may need to know about Costa Rica, she truly made our trip a phenomenal experience. I would highly recommend this rental!

ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING VACATIONS WE HAVE EVER HAD!

  • 5 of 5
Naomi & Steve,

THANK YOU so much for all the effort that you put in to our unbelievable vacation.

I’ve been all over this world, and I can honestly say that this was one of my favorite weeks of all time!

Steve, you built an amazing property with million dollar views from every window and showers to die for. What a fantastic way to wake up every morning! I can’t wait to shower at the lower building once it’s finished, and even looking forward to reading the sports page down there! ;-D

The Driveway, Our “Costa Rican” dinner, Dominical, Jaco, Zip Lining, the Tarzan swing Bar, Cano Island, Sharks, Turtles Matting, Monkey sound alarm clocks, beautiful waterfalls and wading pools, horseback riding on the beach, Ultra lite planes, Salsa dancing, fresh coconut milk from Juan, Ceviche, Imperial, Butterflies and Toucans ;-) and on and on! (WOW)

The ATV ride to the top of the mountain and the views from Chris & Brian’s future lot were unbelievable (Can’t wait till their home is done) ;-)

There is no way that we can re-pay you with money, so please let us all know if there’s anything from the States we can help you all with in the future!

¡Salud,

Michael & Helene

SPECTACULAR SPRING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
I cannot recommend this property highly enough. We took a two family vacation with kids age 9 through age 21. The property is just as lovely as the photographs but no photo can do justice to the spectacular view, which must be seen. Everything is immaculate and well maintained. There are beautiful outdoor spaces in which to relax. There is everything one would have in a resort in a private, peaceful setting.

If we wanted to cook, there were supermarkets nearby and the fully equipped kitchen had everything we needed. This is a stunningly beautiful area of Costa Rica, with several gorgeous beaches nearby, but our families enjoyed just hanging out by the pool listening to the howler monkeys in the morning. There are plenty of more adventurous things to do, too. We swam in waterfalls, went zip lining and the kids took surf lessons at Dominical.

Juan, the caretaker, keeps the property in top shape. He pointed out the wildlife and even brought bananas. Naomi, the House Manager, is a wealth of information about local restaurants and activities. I loved the restaurants in the towns in the area, especially Ojochal and Uvita. We had a stress free, wonderful vacation. I would recommend this property to my friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: Being able to watch guests enjoy this unspoiled part of Costa Rica, and to assist in enabling them to get the most out of their visit, is highly satisfying for me.

Casa Vista Grande and Casitas is located just north of Ojochal, a small cosmopolitan community where some of the best restaurants on the Costa Ballena are located. Nearby is Playa Ventanas, one of the most scenic beaches in the area with natural caves to explore. Kayak along the River Terraba to see birds, caimans and crocodiles, if you're lucky, and visit Isla Garza. Just north along the coastal highway are several stunning national park beaches; Pinuelas, Ballena, the Whales Tale in addition to plenty of waterfalls to explore inland. The ideal area for all water activities including surf lessons, waterfall rappelling and SCUBA diving or snorkeling. A trip to Caño island usually includes dolphin and turtle viewing on the boat ride out, an extra bonus! 20 minutes north is the small surf community of Dominical.
