Enjoy the many sights and activities offered in this region where the jungle covered mountains reach to the sea. There are many beaches within 15 minutes of the coastal highway. Playa Ventanas is known as one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches. The Beach Club is a favorite of ours where you can enjoy food, drinks and a great beach. Zip line above the canopy, horseback ride on the beach or to waterfalls, fishing, rafting, surfing and snorkeling are just a few. Or just hang out at the pool and enjoy the swimming hole with in a 5 minute walk from the house or the 80 foot waterfall in Avancari just a 5 minute drive from Casa.
There are several world class restaurants in the Ojochal area. Exotica, Citrus, Mama e Papas and Azul are just a few of our favorites.

Hi, we are Mike and Patti Britt and we live in Alabama. We love to travel and after our first trip to the southern zone of Costa Rica we fell in love with the beauty of the land and the gentle lifestyle of the people.
The natural beauty of this area is unsurpassed...from the rainforest covered mountains down to the blue Pacific Ocean. It is truly our very own little slice of paradise!
The views from the home are breathtaking. The privacy of your own pool is only steps from the master bedroom and outside living area. It is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and the sights and sounds of the rainforest.
