FROM OUR CASA...
Casa de Teca is sold out for the 2014-2015 rental season. Thank you for your interest! Lyle Anderson, Owner, Casa de Teca.
Hear the ocean roar! See the sun rise over the mountains and set over the Pacific sur! Enjoy the constant and varied bird chatter from our constantly changing resident birds.
Our property is a throughway sitting on the front mountain range here in the tropical Pacific lowlands. Enjoy and experience monkeys, seldom seen birds, fruit trees, coconuts and the evening fragrance of ylang ylang trees. Every day a new discovery awaits you.
With windows on all sides, the casa is very private, well located to get to regional highights, with good roads. Tbe casa is built to see, listen and 'let go.'
Casa de Teca, is 100% teak and has truly world class views. The cozy interior is warm and welcoming. The open plan dining and living area allows for comfortable family gatherings. The fully covered wrap around teak deck adds an inviting outdoor living space.
While not air-conditioned the house is fully ventilated, allowing both the mountain and ocean trade winds to provide cooling breezes throughout the home. The natural teak finishes create a true retreat setting ideal for contemplation, meditation and relaxation. This relaxed environment carries to the outside where one will find an observation lawn for yoga, tai chi and aerobic exercising while enjoying the 180-degree hilltop views. A 3-meter by 8-meter pool provides ample room for water activities including swimming, pool lounging and water walking.
Best of all there is the tropical setting and wildlife – monkeys, birds, flowers, jungle and mountains – that all quickly become part of your experience. On top of the fabulous haven provided at Casa de Teca, it is ideally located to experience many of the outdoor adventures that is Costa Rica. Your imagination is all that’s missing to make this retreat an unforgettable experience. WELCOME!
My wife and I had a good time in Ojochal and the casa. At times my wife found Ojochal on the hot and humid side but it cooled down in the night a little bit and so one could sleep. A little bit of rain here and there also helped as did the small pool. The casa with its two bedrooms and large veranda was easy to live in but a car is needed for shopping and other things. Nearby Uvita and Dominical provide many services. For exploring the surroundings an SUV with four-wheel drive is helpful. Even though the houses in Ojochal are quite widely spaced we felt at all times secure. This was important for us because we are both seniors.
We are interested in birds and nature in general and the casa with its garden had much to offer. We often heard but never really saw howler monkeys because they kept to the dense canopy of trees. However almost daily we were serenaded by Chestnut-mandibled Toucans which made quite a sight. Mealy Parrots and Red-lored Parrots were also common and a pair of Riverside Wren provided much entertainment. We even saw a stunning Slaty-backed Trogon. We put up a hummingbird feeder and several hummer species came including a stunning Blue-throated Goldentail.
Walking was great but only after rain because it supressed dust. However we discovered the nearby road to Play Tortuga which was pleasant to walk on and which together with the remote beach provided excellent birding. Among many other species we found colorful Scarlet Macaws, secretive Gray-necked Wood-rails and cute Olivaceous Piculets which are quire scarce.
We never had any problems with food or water and we quite often eat in small Costa Rican restaurants. A man came twice to Ojochal with fresh fish and shrimp and we had some outstanding meals of mahi-mahi, red snapper and tuna. This is not to be missed. However it would have been nice to have a small barbeque for out-of-door cooking.
In summary we can recommend Ojochal and Casa de Teca for a nice relaxing holiday.
My husband and I enjoyed our first stay at the Casa so much that we had to come again! The Casa has a wonderful location on a hill that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. You can sit on the veranda and enjoy the view and the sounds of the sea! Plus the sound of the birds and animals in the jungle surrounding the clearing on a hill where the home is located. The veranda has a nice roof, so you can sit there even if it's raining, or if the sun is shining and you want some shade. The swimming pool, while not large, is very relaxing--I loved floating on my back and gazing up at the sky through the branches of some trees.
The property has easy access to a highway that can take you to restaurants, beaches, jungles, and river tours through the jungle. On our second trip we visited Finca 6 an archaeological site of giant rock spheres, dating back to pre-Columbian times. Very fascinating!
It is a great place to rest, relax, and enjoy nature at it's best!
I spent two weeks in this beautiful home and can't say enough good things about the experience. The pictures are exactly what you get and I highly recommend this Casa. The shopping, restaurants, soda's (wayside eateries), nearby beaches and friendly locals made for an exciting vacation. There are many nearby towns and activities. I don't speak Spanish but most people understand English (charades also work). I plan to visit again soon.
