The Compass Rose Ocean View Luxury Villa in Costa Rica

Exceptionally Beautiful - Part 1

  • 5 of 5

We travelled throughout parts of Costa Rica and stayed in Jaco, Ojochal and La Fortuna and Tamarindo. Our favourite area was Ojochal and the Compass Rose was exceptionally beautiful.

We looked at a lot of properties before we chose The Compass Rose for this leg of our Costa Rica vacation and we were blown away when we arrived. The pictures on the website don’t do this beautiful estate justice.

We were met by Kumari, the property manager, at her store the Licorere Felize which is a short distance from the roadway up the mountain to The Compass Rose. She has a great selection of wines, liquors and beer.

Driving up the mountain through the dense jungle surrounded by lush vegetation is refreshing. The road is steep in places but a nice drive and as you go past the very few homes on the road the reality sinks in, we are in the jungle. Once we reached the gate to The Compass Rose we got a glimpse of the perfectly manicured grounds. We have arrived at the Jewel of the Jungle!

Kumari showed us around and she went through everything we needed to know about the estate. Wow we are here and it is far more beautiful than the pictures can possibly show you. Flowers decorated the tables and the sparkling blue infinity pool was inviting us to jump in. The house and grounds were spotless! The house is well equipped with everything you need. We had some basics in the cupboards and fridge like spices, ketchup, mustard, sauces and even some rice, pasta, sugar, flour and coffee. This made meal time so much easier to prepare. There are 2 BM Supermarket grocery stores a short trip north on the highway with great selections of everything you need. There are also lots of other smaller local stores and street vendors nearby. If we had a question about anything in the area, like where to shop or excursions etc. we texted Kumari and she always helped us out. It was very comfortable knowing that we had a local resource at hand. I believe she has been in Costa Rica for over 20 years.

Our experience at this villa surpassed our expectations! We had the pleasure of staying at this absolutely beautiful property in January 2013. The house has everything you could possibly need. It is private, well equipped, spacious, comforable and very clean. The pool area is beyond spectacular and the view of the ocean is amazing!!!! The property manager (Erick) is available to help with anything that you need. He is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area and all that it has to offer. We can't wait to go back! We highly recommend this property!!

WOW What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic view of the ocean! Unforgettable! The house is welcoming and "warm": we appreciated watching the beautiful sunsets from the pool, having our early morning coffee while watching the flock of toucans or perrots thinking that all this early "signing" was all arranged specifically for us and our unforgettable evenings outside on the deck having dinner or reminiscing our day trips experiences in the living area - being outside all the time. We used the kitchen which is well equiped and inviting to use because of the central island. Well located with all amenities nearby. This is paradise! We will certainly go back!

A Superbowl Sunday to remember forever!!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best place that I have stayed at when travelling. This is way better than any resort!!! The house was spotless when we arrived and is beautiful; the kitchen is just as great as the sunsets you see while you cook in it. I enjoyed the French doors in the master bedroom which lead to the back terrace and pool. The back terrace is amazing for relaxing and listening to Howler monkeys, having a meal on the massive dining table or just lounging listening to music from the entertainment system (which you can separate from the house to the terrace) while catching some sun. The view is breathtaking (the best sunsets I have ever seen), the privacy is priceless.

There is nothing better than waking up to the view of rain forest and the ocean then jumping into the infinity pool while waiting for some great Costa Rican coffee accompanied by fresh local fruit.

All of our day trips were arranged for us and well worth the price (all very affordable)!! We were approx. 15 mins. to the closest grocery store which was very affordable and friendly, 5 mins. to the nearest beach which was beautiful and almost secluded or 20 mins. to Dominical for night life, local stores, markets, and surf shops for surfing (or boogey board in my case) on some world renowned waves!

The wildlife is everywhere. We saw Howler monkeys, Capuchin (white faced) monkeys, Sloths and all kinds of birds...this was just the ride up to the house. lol.

I loved it so much that I am returning for my honeymoon. I know that my wife will love it just as much as I do!!!

I highly recommend this villa to everyone I meet and will continue recommending it.

Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning villa beautifully equipped with a large kitchen, huge living area and large private pool; it was a great alternative to staying at a resort!

Erik the property manager was a great help and everything was taken care of from the moment we arrived until the moment we left.

We spent most of our time on the huge outdoor deck surrounding the house, the sunsets are amazing and I couldn’t get over the wildlife right outside the door. The Howler monkeys came close to the house; we spotted numerous tropical birds including a flock of toucans

This was the perfect vacation spot in Costa Rica, the villa is secluded and private in the rainforest but close enough to town if you want to go out to dinner or to get to the beach in a couple of minutes.

We had such an amazing vacation in Costa Rica this is a spectacular villa at a reasonable price and I can’t wait to go back!!!
