Located up in the rainforest covered mountains above the village of Ojochal is Casa de Britt. The home is in the exclusive gated community of Avancari. With it's lovely layout it is perfect to enjoy the sights and sounds of the South Pacific Zone. Expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, Osa Peninsula, Isla Cano and the Terraba river delta. This property is the ultimate in privacy. This custom built home completed in 2012 was designed by the renowned architect Eugenia Mendez. Designed to capture the natural beauty of the vistas and to take advantage of cool mountain breezes, we have ceiling fans in all rooms as well as air conditioning in ALL rooms.

Open living areas designed to take in the panoramic views from all rooms. Enter Casa through double glass and iron doors to the open foyer with a beautiful stairway to upper level. First level has fully equipped kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets with granite counter tops, and all amenities. Open dining area and living areas complete with Tommy Bahama furnishings and custom built in cabinets. Table seating for 6 and kitchen bar seating for 3.

Outside living area is our favorite. Begin your day with coffee and local fruits with the sounds of the howler monkeys. Large covered sitting area with exposed beams and fan with very nice furnishings. Bar table with seating for 4, sofa, chairs and gas grill. Poolside lounge chairs with breathtaking views of ocean, mountains and sounds of cascading steam and wildlife. Custom designed tile pool. View our beautiful stream from the pool side deck or take the walkway which has safety metal handrails down to the creek. Enjoy the quiet walkway down to the lower property with landscaping, butterflies, hummingbirds and occasional toucans.

Enjoy the many sights and activities offered in this region where the jungle covered mountains reach to the sea. There are many beaches within 15 minutes of the coastal highway. Playa Ventanas is known as one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches. The Beach Club is a favorite of ours where you can enjoy food, drinks and a great beach. Zip line above the canopy, horseback ride on the beach or to waterfalls, fishing, rafting, surfing and snorkeling are just a few. Or just hang out at the pool and enjoy the swimming hole with in a 5 minute walk from the house or the 80 foot waterfall in Avancari just a 5 minute drive from Casa.

There are several world class restaurants in the Ojochal area. Exotica, Citrus, Mama e Papas and Azul are just a few of our favorites.

About Mike and Patti Britt

Hi, we are Mike and Patti Britt and we live in Alabama. We love to travel and after our first trip to the southern zone of Costa Rica we fell in love with the beauty of the land and the gentle lifestyle of the people.

Mike and Patti Britt purchased this house in 2011

Why Mike and Patti Britt chose Puntarenas

The natural beauty of this area is unsurpassed...from the rainforest covered mountains down to the blue Pacific Ocean. It is truly our very own little slice of paradise!

What makes this house unique

The views from the home are breathtaking. The privacy of your own pool is only steps from the master bedroom and outside living area. It is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and the sights and sounds of the rainforest.

Wonderful! That says it all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the pool and the view etc etc etc.l Three mile road to house takes 15 minutes to navigate, but well worth it!. Neighbors Kent and Jeanette were a big help when a couple of issues came up and resolved the problems with this home with no reserve!!!!! Would come here again in a heartbeat. And thank you to owners, Mike and Patti, for recommending the restaurant Exotica down the hill. It was fabulous!!! Also, a big thank you to them for sharing their home with others!!! Thank you!!!!!!! (Note: It also helped that the rainy season finally came to an end the day we arrived so just a couple of minor rain showers! Refreshing!!! and beautiful!

Peaceful Utopia

  • 5 of 5

Casa Britt is amazing! Our family recently spent a week in Ojochal and it was the perfect location for access to Uvita for fishing, scuba, snorkeling and Corcovado day tours, followed by afternoons relaxing in the Casa Britt pool, then exquisite meals at gourmet restaurants in Ojochal. A perfect mix of remote living with easy access to anything one could desire. Our time in Ojochal will be one of the most memorable vacations that our family has experienced.

Beautiful home and area. Wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two boys (ages 4 & 7) spent a month enjoying this tropical experience. It was our first time in Costa Rica and, as luck would have it, we had randomly chosen Ojochal and this house. It was an amazing experience for us all.

The house beautiful and well kept. Having spent a month there we experienced a few issues that any home owner would experience, however the company managing the property was on-call and quick to respond so excellent service there! Our boys were able to play in the creek that is right next to the house. The sites and sounds of the property were incredible from the creek to the howler monkeys to the birds. We never imagined how beautiful the sights would be. Watching sunsets with the ocean view to watching the sun rise of the mountain (w/ waterfall) from the back opposite direction. The monkeys would be in the trees right next to the house but I would also recommend binoculars to catch them further out in the jungle as well.

Definitely need a 4x4 to get to / from the property but I would recommend that anyway for anyone who truly wants to explore Costa Rica.

Mike and Patti are wonderful owners and helped us every step of the way. My only regret is it took me this long to finally write a review! A special thanks goes out to them! Hopefully we'll cross paths as we plan our relocation. :-)

Magical View of the Pacific in Costa Rica !

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home up on the mtn--- close to a magical waterfall and hiking.

Amazing million dollar view of the Osa Peninsula and the Pacific Ocean !

Large, spacious luxury home with all the good stuff. Beautiful architecture and design.... great

for cooking a nice meal and relaxing on the patio.

Great value for all you get. I didn't mind the drive to the house. It was gated and

exclusive and comfortable........worth it !

Gorgeous swimming pool that our son loved.

Great amenities.

Super restaurants at the bottom of the hill, great beaches and wonders to explore.

Loved it !

My wife wants to go back tomorrow, (her back is packed !)

Mike and Patti were great to deal with and the local realtor handled everything.

There was a few "wild" things, cuz you're out in the "wild".... next to beautiful jungle & critters... so we saw bats hangin' out

on the exterior of the 2nd story-- we Loved it ! Heard and saw toucans, heard howler monkeys and tons of birds..

We will go to Ojochal again and would love to rent this house again ! ! !

Beautiful Home! Great View!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home. The place was very clean and very tastefully decorated! Very private with an amazing view overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Saw toucans in the trees. Heard howler monkeys in the forest. You definitely need a 4 wheel drive vehicle, but you are good with that. Can't wait to return! Make sure you eat at Exotica just a few minutes drive down the road.

Owner's Response: Hey Brenda, Gald you enjoyed your stay and our home. There's not many places like the Southern Zone of Costa Rica left in this busy world we live in. When Patti and I go down we wake up in the mornings with no stress and watch for the toucans...pretty cool. Thank you soo much for the positive review, we really appreciate it. Mike & Patti

A magical spot in the jungle!

  • 4 of 5

This house is on a beautiful piece of land, with a lot of privacy. Spider monkeys cruise along the creek and toucans visit the nearby trees. The garden and the view from the pool and porch area is lovely. There are multiple waterfalls (including one of the tallest in the area!) within walking distance. There are a cute pair of muscovy ducks that greet you as you cross the creek at the beginning of the development. There is an abundance of different fruit in the area including plantains, bananas, cas (green guava), breadfruit, papaya, ice cream beans, cashews, almonds, and limes. We stayed for three months and it seemed like a few weeks! We truly enjoyed our stay on this beautiful property. Thank you Mike and Patti for sharing your house with us!

Uvita Information Center is a great source for information of things to do and places to go. They can take care of booking all activities. Horseback riding at Rancho La Merced on the beach or horseback ride to Nauyaca Waterfalls and Osa Mountain Canopy Tours (Zip-Lines) are just a few things to do in the area. Whale watching (in season), diving and snorkeling at Cano Island for water adventures. And many beautiful beaches to explore that are never crowded. Go to the Beach Club for lunch and hang out at the beach there. Award winning restaurants in Ojochal are fantastic. Be sure to eat at Exoticas, Citrus, Mama e Pappas and Azuls for a truly unique dining experience.
