Awesome home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed several days in November 2014 in this wonderful home and it is everything that the photos would suggest and more. The kitchen is fully equipped for most anything you'd want to do. The house is very open and inviting, the pool is great, and the view is unbeatable. We felt extremely comfortable, at home, and relaxed during our stay. We did have a few minor issues with the wi-fi and TV but Robert was very prompt in helping us work it out. A better place to stay while visiting this part of the Costa Rica would be hard to find.

We hated to leave and will definitely hope to return again.

A beautiful house in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Roberts house in Ojochal for a week with friends of ours, in total there were 9 of us. The house was beautifully equipped with everything you you would need for a perfect stay. The property was equipped with high end appliances and furniture . It was very clean and well maintained including the beautiful grounds and swimming pool. The views are absolutely stunning across the jungle and down to the Pacific Ocean which you can hear, which gave it a very relaxing feel.

The outside patio where we spent most of our time was very nice with a dining table and lounge set to accomodate us all. Bob was very helpful and was able to instantly assist with any concerns and questions. The property was very private and secure, we would love to return and hopefully will

Thanks Bob

Stunning Home and Lot

  • 5 of 5

This home has absolutely everything you require - Robert has thought of everything you would need. The lot offers a stunning view of the ocean, and you can hear the surf, something that is difficult to find in Ojochal. The rooms are huge, the outside terrace, where you will spend a lot of your time, is very large and comfortable and just steps away from a beautiful pool. And the third en-suite bedroom is separate from the main house by about 25 feet - something our son and his wife enjoyed! Lots of Ojochal's famous restaurants nearby. Tortuga beach is 5 minutes away, with 3 others within 10 minutes. Easy driving to other attractions and activities further south. Great grocery store in Ojochal, and larger one in Uvita - 10 minutes away. I would recommend this property without any hesitation, as it is tremendous value for the dollar as far as Ojochal rentals are concerned. Thank you Robert!!

Best vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how great our stay was. The view is so much better than what it looks like from the photos. The property is perfectly appointed with fabulous finishes and the touches that show that the owner goes above and beyond for your comfort. For example, the silverware is weighty and solid, the stainless cookware is substantial, the blender is heavy duty, furnishings are well done with style. The grounds are immaculate and the pool has a warming feature with water from a shallow upper pool pumped into the deeper main pool.The owner is hospitable without being at all intrusive and you feel like the place is truly yours for the duration of your stay. With it's separate gated entrance and security system, there is never a concern about privacy or safety. The property is the perfect combination of altitude above the heat of the beach and accessibility to the highway for sightseeing, ocean time and adventures.

Our Dream Stay in Ojochal, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 10 wonderful days at Casa Tusca Del Mar. The home is spacious and well ventilated. Ceiling fans are in every room, including the closets and bathrooms. The home sits on top of a ridge overlooking a large ravine/tropical jungle, the Rio Grande mouth of the Terraba into the Ocean, the mountains and the breezes blow all the time and from many directions. The air movement makes inside & outside very comfortable. You walk out the entryway onto the pool patio at the same level. The pool is clean, and warm and beautiful. The water falls from the upper pool to the lower pool and sounds wonderful. There is a large umbrella over the upper pool which allowed us to be in the water without being in the sun anytime of day.

The appliances are new and easy to use. They have provided everything you could imagine in the kitchen and a great patio gas grille . The laundry is separated from the living area, but convenient. The bathrooms are brand new and modern. The walk in tiled spacious showers have nice shower heads to match. Drapes are available for all bedroom windows if you want to block the sun.

Restaurants in the area are very good and reasonable. The cuisine offers French, Italian, Indonesian, burgers, "Costarricensay" (local) and German. Grocery stores with all your needs are 10 minutes away. There is also a large English speaking community that gathers every week to exchange ideas on Costa Rican living and friendship. Farmer Market on Tuesday & Friday are fantastic. Bob and Colleen are wonderful hosts and are available to answer any questions or to advise.

We couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you Bob and Colleen!!!

Fantastic House, Incredible Views, Great for Groups

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the house justice. There are two bedrooms in the main house and one in the guest house. Beds are all comfortable and plentiful. The kitchen is well stocked. Everything is clean and new. The owner is very helpful if anything comes up (we set the alarm off accidentally once and he immediately came by to help us out). The property is incredibly private but does not feel isolated. We had two rental cars which I think is a must as there are not many things within walking distance. Would absolutely stay again.
