My family of six just stayed at this house for a week. We had never been to Costa Rica and didn't know what to expect. We couldn't believe the view of the ocean from the house . It was way beyond our expectations. The house and location was absolutely perfect. The area was great . Lots of little places and towns to explore . There were plenty of places to eat nearby . The house was very relaxing and well stocked with everything you could want . Our house manager Phillipe was great . He had a great knowledge of things to do and was so helpful in every way. You cannot go wrong with this place. We will definitely be back and stay at this house again!

Beautiful villa with magnificent sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 11-night stay in this beautiful villa. We have never seen such magnificent sunsets and made it a point to be in the pool or on the terrace each evening to enjoy them. The house is extremely well equipped with kitchen implements, beach mats, towels, etc. We enjoyed various excursions while in the area -- Rancho Merced horseback riding at sunset, Hacienda Baru zip lining, Villas Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary, surf lessons with Sunset Surf, and last but not least Kumari's snorkelling trip to Caño Island, which was amazing. We also hiked to Nauyaka Falls. (We made sure we were on the trail before 8 am to beat the crowds). Another favourite was Cascada Pavon, close to Ojochal (near the Talapia restaurant). Our favourite beach was Playa Veñtanas -- gorgeous and so nice to have the shade. We went out for lunch everyday, but stayed in for dinner, using the grill each night. Kumari is an absolute gem - so lovely and helpful. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and the stunning view...we hope to be back!

A beautiful peaceful, property.

  • 5 of 5

We have made several visits around Costa Rica and sought a villa in a less touristy area. This property was perfect. Far enough away by car, it is uncrowded and a good value.

The gated villa is perfectly situated on a cliff with spectacular views. The home is beautifully decorated, spacious and extremely private. You will want for nothing, as the owner has fully stocked the villa with cookware, linens and necessities. The property manager was terrific and always available.

A four wheel drive is a must as all roads except the main road are dirt. Access to the villa is steep, with sharp turns and bumps. Timid drivers will fret.

There are wonderful small restaurants at the bottom of the hill that will please the most discerning palate.

On review, this property was easily the best choice for my wife and I in Ojochal. The pool and lanai were just the ticket for hot sun and relaxation in the jungle. We had a perfect sunsets every night.

You will not be disappointed, it is truly magical.

Magical Place!

  • 5 of 5

The house and setting provided an amazing retreat and offered breathtaking views of both the ocean and jungle. Kumari provided excellent service by assisting us with a few groceries for our first day and recommending a kayak tour. The house is very nicely decorated and very comfortable (the kitchen is stocked with pretty much anything you would need to prepare food or beverages-including spices). You could choose to not leave the grounds and have a wonderful time but the location provided easy access to beaches, restaurants, activities, etc. The owner phoned to ensure we were pleased with everything; a very nice touch! I cannot offer any negatives - only rave reviews of every aspect of the experience. Costa Rica is a magnificent place and the house is a perfect accompaniment!

Amazing in every way!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was spectacular. The property manager Kumarie was available, helpful and had a genuine kindness to her. The home was immaculate and the views were truly breath taking. The area is fairly remote but everything you need is easily accessible. Fine dining in ojochal was great, and beach and activities were plentiful with a quick drive to Dominical. The Nauyaca waterfall tour on horseback is an absolute must! We stayed only one short week but know we will return to the area and hopefully this amazing property again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On est de retour à la réalité malheureusement.

On a adoré notre séjour au Costa Riva et dans ta super villa, un souvenir mémorable.

Comme prévu un matin on a vu grand groupe de singes et un autre matin on a même vu un paresseux (photos en pièces jointes)

Et tous les soirs, nous avons assisté à un coucher de soleil à couper le souffle, moment qu'on a manqué une seule fois car c'était trop beau.

Merci encore pour tout, on pense déjà y retourner un jour et on envoie la villa comme référence à nos amis qui veulent aller dans le Sud et vivre un moment magique.
