Ojochal house description

This beautiful 3 bedroom/2.5 Bath home is nestled on the Mountain hillside overlooking Ojochal, with stunning views of the river mouth and the Pacific ocean.

'Estilo de Vida' ('The Style of Life') is available for short-term and long-term rental.

The property offers a private pool with complete privacy due to the secluded nature of the property. The temperature of the pool is a wonderful 86 degrees all year around. Located at an altitude of 700 feet above Sea level the property avoids the problem of pesky mosquitoes. Watch the Howler Monkeys in the trees and humming birds and toucans right from the pool deck.

The 12 acre property includes a private nature trail that leads to a stream and then on to the main river that runs through the property. Enjoy a swim in the river and then head back to the house spotting monkeys and Blue Morpho butterflies along the way.

Each bedroom has a walk-in closet and is air-conditioned. The air conditioners use the latest Inverter technology which causes the unit to slow down as it nears the set temperature. This results in very quite operation (no condenser kicking in and out) and as it is running constantly it results in very low humidity levels (35 to 40%) which makes you feel cooler. Free wireless internet is available throughout the house.

                                  Year Purchased: 2006

                                  About: My wife and I are fortunate enough to live on the island of Bermuda where I operate a Health club and my wife works as the IT Manager for one of the Off-Shore Insurance companies. We have two young sons who love going to the Costa Rica house. We tend to go in the rainy season each year or sometimes every two years.

                                  Why Ojochal:
                                  We love the remote jungle setting. In the picture my sons explore Playa Tortuga near the house. The property itself is amazing as the lot is 12 acres in size which allows you to completely relax in privacy. We like getting up early in the morning walking the nature trail to the river and back.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  Beautiful view of the Pacific Coast. Watch White-faced, Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Humming Birds, Wood Peckers, Sloths and other animals and birds in the jungle around the property, and watch them right from the comfort of the pool deck.
