Ultimate house in a fantastic location, Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Splendid!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were with our mothers and truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Palma. The covered outdoor kitchen was very well equipped; perfect for food prep, grilling, stove-top cooking and making fresh-fruit smoothies. The location is excellent, in addition to the many restaurants nearby there is a medium-sized grocery store 5 minutes down the road. Our mothers enjoyed the spectacular ocean, jungle and mountain views, dips in the pool, secure access and private location. The bedrooms and baths were very nice and even the screened in sleeping area was comfortable. You'll wake up early to the calls of parrots and other jungle life (we also saw toucans and an iguana), but you'll want to get an early start to the day with all of the places to visit within minutes (awesome Playa Ventanas) to an hour's drive (fantastic river tour in Sierpes). Our hosts were quite kind and generous (beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and more were made available to us). Tremendous value!

Owner's Response: We chose this spot in Costa Rica as our permanent place for retirement and built on the same site our own quarters in a way that preserved privacy and views for all and we are so pleased that all our guests so far agree we have achieved this balance that also affords guests additional security.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family was fortunate enough to stay at lovely "Casa Palma" in Ojochal. The property was well-equipped, with wonderful views to the mountains and the ocean and had lots of places to enjoy each other or have a private moment alone. The hummingbirds were regular visitors. Bob and Colleen were very helpful and were attentive any time we needed advice, or anything at all for that matter. The pool was awesome, the location close enough to restaurants and beaches, but secluded and high enough for views and peace and quiet. We will certainly return - just not soon enough!
