A beautiful retreat in Ojochal

My husband and I were able to stay at the guesthouse for two weeks in early March. The house was perfect for the two of us. It is very well maintained, clean and furnished very nicely. The outside patio was great for a quiet breakfast, or dinner - or just enjoying the surrounding gardens. The last day of our stay we even saw a troop of howler monkeys travel from tree to tree across the back yard. A dip in the saline pool was a refreshing way to spend some of the hot afternoons. The owners were very helpful since they are quite familiar with the area. The location of the guesthouse is just off the main highway, so you don't have to drive on the "local" roads much at all. Ojochal is only about a 45 minute drive from Sierpe to the south and Quepos to the north - making it an easy drive to so many attractions! It is also a great location with many nearby beaches to explore and gourmet restaurants to enjoy.

We really enjoyed our stay - and would love to go back and stay here again in the (near!!) future.

We had a wonderful stay at the guesthouse in Ojochal. Everything is so lush! The garden beautiful, the saline pool lovely and refreshing. The owners are very helpful with information, respect your privacy but are very accommodating.
Our favourite beach was Playa Ventanas and our kayak trip on the Sierpe river a MUST do activity while in the area.
On our next visit to the area we would use it again.

My wife and I booked this house for a week in December and found it to be exactly as described on VRBO. The house is well designed for comfort and privacy and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the stunning views of the mountains and wildlife during our outdoor breakfest. The gardens and the pool area are very nice and well kept, we found ourselves dipping in the pool and relaxing under the sun sails daily. With some directions and hand drawn maps from the owners we did alot of exploring almost everyday and we still did not see everything we wanted. Oh well I guess we will just have to book it again.

Thanks for a great vacation

It was a wonderful spot for bird watching, close to numerous wonderful restaurants, beaches and wildlife reserves. It is just a short drive from the mangroves of Terraba-Sierpe, which is a must. The owners were very accommodating and provided useful information about the area. The apartment itself is beautiful, private and well-designed. Highly recommended!

Great town and great accomodations in Costa Rica

We stayed at this cute little house for 6 days in November 2011. The owners are very helpful and gave great recommendations about sightseeing in the area.
Ojochal is quite the town. Lots of restaurants close by. Good location to see beaches, ziplining, day trips to Manuel Antonio and most of what you could want in Costa Rica.
Accomodations were clean and comfortable. Adequate supplies to cook meals. The pool is nice and the grounds have gorgeous greenery.
Overall, highly recommended.

Tucked in amongst nature

My husband and I spent a week at this lovely little retreat. The home was nice and cozy with everything required for a pleasant, relaxing stay. The house and grounds were neat as a pin. The pool was always a welcome retreat, throughout the day or whenever we returned from any venture away from the house. The birds around the house were awesome. Everyday we were treated to the sights and sounds of numerous Tucans as well as many other colorful birds.
The hosts were very helpful with sharing their knowledge of the area and they suggested some wonderful excursions. We enjoyed traveling down the Sierpe river and the Tropical Paridise Gardens in Rio Claro. We enjoyed walking on the beaches, espeicially the Whale's Tail in Uvita.
This home and area are ideal for those who want to truly relax and get away from the hustle and bustle and sit back and read a book or just chill out.

Incredible

My husband and I had an amazing time at this beautiful place in Ojochal! The views are amazing from the house, with mountains to the east and the ocean to the west. Loved hearing and seeing toucans nearly every day early in the morning! The house itself is beautiful, and is quite private. The hosts are really nice folks, and very helpful with information about the area. Really excellent restaurants within walking distance from the house. A few of the many places to eat in Ojochal (Ylang Ylang, Exotica, Citrus) are destinations themselves. The beaches up the coast are stunning, and quiet. Lots to do in the area in terms of the outdoors: zip lining, mangrove tours, scuba, horseback riding, rafting, beaches. We stayed just over a week and almost forgot that we had to go home... We highly recommend this place!
