TWO BEDROOM VILLA PLUS OPTIONAL SELF CONTAINED 2 BEDROOM CABINA.

Ojochal de Osa Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

On the ocean side of the two bedroom main villa a beautiful infinity pool overlooks a butterfly garden, the valley and ocean below. There is a rancho with hammock and jungle and ocean views. Also, a back patio offers a shaded area for afternoon relaxing and bird watching. The self contained cabina offers two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. An outdoor kitchen (cabina) offers amazing ocean views and sits at the edge of the jungle. One hundred and ninety concrete steps lead to a river which drops off into a 200' waterfall. Fresh water shrimp can be caught here -- if you're quick with a net. The steps are through the jungle with passion flowers, buttress trees, and many of Costa Ricas coloured frogs along the way. Both dwellings are A/C equipped although the breeze at this elevation means the A/C is rarely required. This is a new property built in 2012 and beautifully landscaped with flowering shrubs and fruit trees. It is truly an amazing property.

  • children welcome

We are retired Canadians, residents in the Kawartha Lakes area of Southern Ontario. We have always loved travelling and spending time with our four grown children and ten grandchildren. Recently three great-grandchildren have been added to the family. I have always loved orchids and owning this property allows me to indulge in this passion.

Dorothy and Len MacDonald purchased this villa in 2012

After visiting many areas of Costa Rica over a period of 12 years we finally found our property in the Cascada Sandalo development near the village of Tres Rios. We built and developed our home and property during 2012 and totally love it. The property boasts a mature mango tree and a spring fed river at the bottom of a ravine in the jungle that can be reached by 190 concrete steps. The river ends in a 200 foot waterfall.

A unique property.

The cooling breezes at the 1000 ft elevation of our home. The many waterfalls and rivers in the area. It is so cool to look down on the mists rising from the rivers in the valley below us. The toucans and aracaris visit twice daily and pizotes and monkeys often. Occasionally a sloth. We have also seen macaws, laughing falcons, and hawks from our patio. It is so... peaceful!

VILLA DE ORQUIDAE:PERFECT VACATION VENUE FOR REST AND RELAXATION OR EXTREME ADVENTURE. YOU CHOOSE!

  • 5 of 5
Nestled high in the mountains of Coronado, rests an incredible 5-star villa. With panoramic views of the Pacific, surrounded by lush, tropical rainforest... this property is nothing short of spectacular! From early morning wake-up calls of Howler monkeys to the tell-tale sounds of nearby Toucans, each moment is filled with National Geographic quality experiences. The collection of animal identification books makes it exciting to identify the many birds, insects and animals found right on site.
Beautifully manicured and maintained, it is almost inconceivable that this property, with modern conveniences, is a 15 minute drive high in the mountains requiring 4-wheel drive! More than once, we marveled at the planning and engineering that went into developing such an outstanding home.
While the villa does have A/C, we never found it necessary to turn it on, as the ceiling fans do an incredible job of circulating cool mountain air.
The infinity pool is the focal point of the property. Views of the Pacific sunsets are enhanced by elegant reflections, encircled by butterfly gardens and beautifully designed landscaping.
As an added bonus, we had the memorable opportunity of exploring with Antonio, an incredibly knowledgable and welcoming neighbor. From rainforest hikes to waterfall rappelling, Tony was an inexhaustible resource of information and guidance, not to mention humor and local folklore.
Emails exchanged with the owner, including directions and suggestions prior to our arrival, were spot-on and contained valuable ideas for site seeing, shopping, dining and general safety tips regarding rip-tides and safe swimming locations.
Another local friend, Denise, made arrangements and reservations for outstanding dining and adventurous outings. This allowed for seamless travel, with no concern for scams or miscommunications.
With absolutely no reservations whatsoever, I highly recommend this property and the potential it provides for a most memorable stay. Whether it is rest and relaxation by the pool, or extreme adventure that you desire, Villa de Orquidae provides a picturesque, safe venue for a perfect vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Sarah, for your wonderful review of Casa de Orquidea. We're glad you enjoyed the casa, view and wildlife, as well as the trails, river trekking and rappelling in the development. An ocelot was recently sighted on the road up the mountain -- exciting!

The neighbours who were in residence in Cascada Sandalo during your visit sure enjoyed you and your family. Hope the bananas from our tree lasted during your stay -- maybe if you come again the pineapples will be ready too. You probably had your fill of mangoes! Thanks for the photos.
