Just spent 30 wonderful days enjoying Sharon and Ken's casita. It's high in the mountains, full of beautiful plantings and birds. We saw toucans and parrots daily. Enjoyed the howler and white faced monkeys. The casita is very comfortable and Sharon is really helpful with information about the area. Loved the nearby beaches and wonderful sunset watching spots.

Absolute Paradise!! 5++++++

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Fiesta Del Rio from March 8th through March 19th! This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and just fell in love with the country. In particular their town of Ojochal. Our hosts Ken and Sharon Stone are the VERY best. We enjoyed their hospitality! They welcomed us with open arms and made sure our stay was unbelievable. They provided information on local restaurants, shopping, sight-seeing, beaches, waterfalls etc. They have lived there almost 9 years, and know the countryside very well.

The Guest House was beautiful, well equipped and very clean and comfortable. Two generous bedrooms, each with separate bathrooms. There was everything we needed to cook our meals, and a great BBQ outside all under a large covered sitting area, complete with dining table. We loved eating our meals out here, and I found my husband relaxing or having an afternoon "Siesta" on the outdoor sofa every chance he got! We did not want for anything! There was even a washing machine so we could wash our clothes and travel light. We were amazed at how at home we felt right away and were able to just relax.

We really enjoyed waking up early, and walking outside to see the incredible view of the mountains with their tops gently disappearing into the mist. You could hear the monkeys, toucans and other various birds singing their songs. Loved being so close to the jungle greenery and wildlife! Views of the ocean were also close by. During the evening, the stars were amazing.

The property is impeccably landscaped and manicured. Just up the pathway, was a beautiful clean swimming pool, complete with shower, bathroom, and even an Infrared Sauna to boot! A small fridge there made it handy to have some cold refreshments close at hand, while being very private.

We were lucky enough to dine at "Exotica" right in Ojochal, and the food and service were very good! A true dining experience very close by. This little town has great dining options. Wine, beer, and groceries are available at a local supermarket. Beaches and waterfalls are very close by.

We just got home early yesterday and already miss it so much! Book your stay! You certainly won't be disappointed! You too will feel like you are "home"!

Will we be back to Fiesta Del Rio? Absolutely! Can't be soon enough for us!! We already look forward to booking our 2nd trip there!! We are thinking that this would be the perfect place for us to retire!

Adequate Accommodations

  • 3 of 5

We stayed two weeks at Fiesta Del Rio. The grounds are well maintained with lovely bushes and flowers. The pool was a life saver at the end of a hot day of adventure. We enjoyed seeing a variety of birds and howler monkeys on the premises. Rocket and Maura will greet you daily with kisses. The bed was very comfortable but the pillows definitely need to be replaced. The kitchen is quite small but has all the amenities needed to cook small meals and there is a nice bbq on the patio. The lounge furniture in the house and on the patio were uncomfortable. The pool was our favorite place to lounge. The house was very clean. The road to the house is rough and takes about 15 from the highway. A bit of traffic in the mornings in and out of the premises... visitors, grounds keepers, owners coming and going.

Little Village Get-away

  • 5 of 5

After our first bumpy ride to our rental, we arrived at a wonderful, fully equipped home.

This two-bedroom, two-bath is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all.

Sharon and Ken pretty much thought of everything.

They do have two dogs, but we loved Rocket and Maura.

The setting for this home is beautiful and the grounds are very well-kept.

It resides in a little (unpaved) village, that amazingly has oodles of fantastic restaurants and two grocery stores. Citrus was our personal favorite, amazing food. there was also this teeny tucked away tapas, like place Pancito, near the entrance, where everyone spoke French. The owner/chef made it a point to check with us and chat.

Excellent place, great value.

Thank you Sharon and Ken.

The casita is very functional, comfortable, well equipped, and beautiful. Sharon and Ken are as gracious as can be, and turn to friends upon meeting them. Both were so very helpful to my wife and I. The grounds are stunning, with a variety of plants that bring color, flowers, trees (fruit and ornamental). We felt at home within minutes of getting there. I will seek to stay there again, hopefully soon.

Ken and Sharon our hosts were great. They love their guests! One morning after waking we went out on to the nice sized lovely covered patio that opened on 3 sides to the gardens and jungle and found 2 fresh coconuts waiting for us to enjoy the coconut milk. A thoughtful and lovely surprise.

We loved the casita--had everything we needed and was so clean and fresh.

There is a secret path to the pool that is private. The jungle is amazing. We enjoyed the pool during the day and in the evening when the sky was filled with stars and the sounds of the magical jungle floated through the night air.----pure perfection.

The beaches are not far away and there are some excellent places to dine close by.

Sharon and Ken respect your privacy but if you need them they are always helpful. If you are alone or with your family this place is perfect!!! Don't miss it. We did not want to leave and we will be back. Wish we could have stayed forever. Thank you Ken and Sharon for a time we will never forget.
