The house is located in the mountains above the small Village of Ojochal, which is on the South Pacific Coast, just above Peninsula of Osa (Southern Zone of Costa Rica). This is a popular destination for Americans, Canadians- English and French; and Europeans. Here you will find Costa Rican Spanish spoken, with a wide range of transplanted Canadians and French people living here. All are very friendly and helpful!

This region of Costa Rica has conserved its natural wildlife and preserved the ecosystem of the Rainforest. The primary Rain forest, Fauna and Flora are largely undamaged, thanks to the efforts of the government laws to protect and preserve the magnificent natural resources.

The village of Ojochal offers a quiet and tranquil setting. There is a Supermarket, gas station, meat shop, wine and liquor store, bakery for fresh baked breads, fresh fish and seafood, fruit stands, gift shops in the village and along the Coastal Highway.

Playa Ventanas and Pinuelas are must sees and are 15 minutes by car. Playa Ballena (National Marine Park) is also 15 minutes by car. There are other great beaches a bit further north on the Coastal Highway. Playa Hermosa and The SURFING BEACH Playa Dominical is 20 to 30 minutes by car. There are many resorts, restaurants and activities to enjoy on the Coastal Highway from Ojochal to Playa Dominical. Playa Dominical in itself, is a wonderful place to spend the day. There many activities, beach vendors and tours offered, along with wonderful open-air restaurants.

**** WE RECOMMEND RENTING A 4 WHEEL DRIVE due to some places in the road being a bit rough after the rains.*************

About Pat Christoph

This is a dream come true!

We love sitting on the observation deck, drinking our morning coffee, listening to the Howler monkeys, watching the jungle wake up, the night critters going to sleep. The mist rises off the valley below, as we watch the sun rise over the verdant mountains ... breathtaking every day!

The Jungle is always amazing us!

Pat Christoph purchased this house in 2008

Why Pat Christoph chose Puntarenas

We loved this full of hotels, the busy-ness, the structures of a heavy tourist area. It is a rural area with lots to do, and plenty of nature to explore! The community, the local people are all friendly and welcoming.

A true breath of fresh air!

What makes this house unique

R & R at its your usual vacation!

The villa is located in a quiet, rural, gated community with twisty mountain roads. Nature is all around morpho butterflies, toucans, etc!

You get to decide what you will do, when you will do not! You can be as busy as you want or spend your days around the house relaxing in a deck chair or a hammock or the pool. Enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer!

Casa Del Sol was more comfortable and luxurious than I had imagined. It was an extremely safe and friendly place, yet howler monkeys were in the trees. The kitchen was extremely well furnished for anything you wanted to prepare. The refrigerator even had a ice cube dispenser. The dipping pool was perfection after a hot day in the jungle. There were friendly neighbors if you need advice in this gated community, but there is plenty of private space.

Close to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Casa Del Sol about 6 times now, and it is by far the nicest environment we've been to. Proximity to the nicest beaches in the world (I think) is great, morning walks, snorkeling at Bellana beach, shopping at Pal Mar, Golf 15 min. away, Canopy tour zip line, (not your average zip line.... AWESOME) deep sea fishing and river tour out of Sierpe.... it goes on and on. What a beautiful place. The plunge pool is perfect to cool down any time of day, and the outdoor and indoor kitchens are perfect if you want to do your own thing and hang out at the house.... SO RELAXING!! Hope to be back soon.

Great place for large group in Ojochal

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with seven people over New Years. We really liked the house and had a great time hanging out there. The layout of the house is welcoming, especially the outdoor common space, with a dining table, chairs, and a small pool. The four bedrooms are spacious and each have their own bathroom. We cooked a lot in the large kitchen. The house also has a laundry room which was a plus. Location was great, near activities and restaurants, though you have to drive 15 minutes on a gravel road to get to the house. Several beaches are then within a few minutes, and Uvita is another 15 minutes away. The owner was nice and communicated with us well.

Small downsides are lack of air conditioning--although the rooms have ceiling fans and several had portable fans, it would have been good to have a few more fans to help cool down bedrooms at night. Some recommendations: we weren't told in advance that we had to arrive by a specified time (5pm) and would have appreciated that information in the house listing or in initial discussions for planning purposes. Also, the property managers were friendly but not very helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the response. Being on the mountain and getting a cross breeze, we have never found it necessary to have air conditioning as the house cools down at night. We will however obtain more fans for our guests to use. Normally the Property Managers are very accommodating with check in times. I did not know in advance that a late check in was required and therefore could not make arrangements with the Property Managers.

Luxurious Jungle Living!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful facility and our hostess, Rita, was fabulous! A wealth of information about where to go and what to do. Warning: The drive up to the Casa is an adventure in itself! Best to bring a 4 x 4. The close proximity to a variety of incredibly gorgeous beaches and the absolutely amazing Jungle Canopy Zipline Adventure makes this a very attractive place to stay.

Jungle Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Casa Del Sol was everything we expected and more. The guest rooms, pool and grounds were immaculately clean. Rita our hostess was a wealth of information on the local area and what we could see and do.

The directions to Casa Del Sol are easy to follow and the ride up the mountain to Casa Del Sol is a beautiful and very bumpy ride up.

All the amenities are well maintained and are in great working order, so you can preapre all your own meals or take the ride down the mountain and eat in one of the many resturaunts in Ojochal or surrounding area.

There are many, many excellent beaches a short drive away
