Kathy Sturk purchased this house in 2013
Very private, Very secure, Enjoys all weather 2 wheel drive access. Only 800 meters from Hwy with ridge top views of white water ocean,mountain,valley and jungle.
Proximity to the best restaurants in Ojochal. Photographers and birdwatchers Paradise. A different sunset every night. Close to 6 of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches and easy access to connect with tour operators to experience all that southern Costa Rica has to offer.
This property looked too good to be true on the listing, but it turned out to be even better in reality.
The living area is large, well thought out, and very well maintained. Indoor and outdoor spaces are equipped with every convenience, also games, books about local flora, fauna and history, a huge film library, and more. It's a 20-minute, easy walk to beach, and 10 minutes to a well-stocked grocery and good restaurants; that turns out to be ideal because you're away from highway traffic, and provided with great ocean and mountain views from a beautiful garden, and big pool. You are surrounded by vast green space, full of birds and butterflies.
There are several superb beaches, and outdoor activities very close by. When we visited in late November, we often had these spaces to ourselves.
The hosts live on the property, and they're resourceful and helpful, or as discreet as you want them to be. Their presence, their two lovely dogs, and excellent security provisions will put you at ease during your stay. Many thanks to Bob, Colleen, and Kathy (booking manager) for their hospitality.
Casa Palma was a special place to stay. My son and I stayed for 6 nights the 1st week of Nov.2016. The check in was easy and flexible with Kathy as the perfect hostess. The house was so comfortable all the modern conveniences including AC which you rarely need! It was spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water. Hope to return again soon!!!
Did I forget to mention the great restaurants close nearby :-)
What a wonderful house in a fantastic location, we spent 8 nights at this gorgeous house with our 3 children, 12, 15, 20, during Christmas and new year. The house is very well equipped with high quality furniture, linens and appliances. There are two kitchens but we only used the outside kitchen which was just amazing with its views of the mountains, jungle and ocean. The outside dining area has a great table that will be easily seat 8, we had all meals which were eaten in at this table. There is then a spectacular seperate seating area with comfortable chairs and foot stools where we enjoyed drinks and morning coffee whilst taking in the views and watching the wildlife including the Toucans which perched in the tree above (sigh🙂🙂🙂). The sunsets from this spot were unbelievable also. Bob and Colleen were very helpful with any of our needs, although they live on the same site they are completely seperate as there accomadation is set above and forward of the house which is a very unique design as it gives complete privacy for both without blocking any of the amazing views. We enjoyed them being there as it enhanced our experience having them on site for security and any queries. This is our third time in the Ojochal area and the location of this house was just fantastic, as it is set on the mountain side it is a fairly steep but very accessible access which even a 4WD is not required, we personally loved the walk down to the local village which is well served with small supermarket and a bakery which had bread and pastries to die for!!!!
Whilst Ojochal is famous for the culinary dining venues there are also many very reasonable priced restaurants in a short drive or even walking distance as we liked to do with great food and ambience.
Thanks Bob and Colleen for a wonderful holiday, we also very much enjoyed the occasional company from Tes and Sussy your dogs
This house was not just a rental property, it was like home!!!
We spent 8 nights in this beautiful home! It was perfect for our family of 6 (and our kids fell in love with the dogs too)! We enjoyed spectacular sunsets as well as lovely views of both the mountains and the ocean while sitting in the beautiful outdoor area. The kids loved the pool and Bob was kind enough to haul out pool toys for them to enjoy as well! The home had everything we needed (and more!) including beach towels, umbrella & cooler. Bob and Colleen were great hosts and always available when we needed them!! Colleen was even kind enough to grab my laundry off the washline TWICE to save it from a rain shower!!
We loved our stay here and would HIGHLY recommend it!!
The house has everything you need, nice location, good owners, all round very positive stay. Sue and Tess kept us amused and added to the experience. Especially liked the lap pool, outside kitchen, and Jack the hummingbird. You won't go wrong staying in Ojochal.
We enjoyed the stay at this beautiful house very much. The owners take care of every single detail to make your vacation an enjoyable one. The house is well-equipped and well-maintained and can easily accommodate up to 7 people. It really feels like home. Highly recommended for families with children.
Convenient access to highway of less than 1 kilometre and not more than 1.2 kilometres to all of Ojochals best restaurants nearest at 200 metres and 2 to 5 kilometres for choice of 3 beaches gives easy access to all the south pacific has to offer
