Ojochal house description

Comfortable and private for two guests, Casa Rica is located in a gated 5 acre estate of tropical gardens, fruit trees and exotic plants. The scent of ylang ylang trees perfume the air and the view from your porch is of large Guanacaste trees, exotic flowers, and the jungle faced coastal mountain range. The fruit garden provides a bounty of bananas, starfruit, coconuts, mango, citrus and more.

The interior of the house is Balinese wood, having been designed and built on the island of Bali Indonesia and transported to Costa Rica. The king sized bed is extra comfortable with a a pillow top mattress, and the full bathroom and kitchen bring all the comforts of home. There is a security safe for valuables. The private plunge pool will refresh and is surrounded by deck and steps to the Balinese gazebo. From the porch, the mountain and garden views are beautiful with many birds and butterflies making their home, including morphos - the electric blue butterfly.

The gardens are ever changing with seasonal fruits and flowers at hand for your enjoyment. There are paths throughout the 5 acre estate which will lead you through the botanical zen garden, the Labyrinth, through bamboo groves to the Spa House, the meditation stream, or wherever you wander. You may hear the call of the area resident rainbow macaws, along with many other bird species.

And for those considering a more permanent situation in Costa Rica, we will be happy to guide you to trustworthy people who can show you available property in the area.

No 4wd vehicle is necessary to access this property. This retreat will feel remote, but is convenient to activities the area has to offer.

This area of Costa Rica is ideal for lovers of gourmet cuisine with a number of the area's finest restaurants. There's also a popular French bakery nearby with delicious breads, and a Licorcia for those looking for special ingredients to cook at home.

Just 5 minutes away is one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches, Ventanas Beach, and the popular surfer's beach in Dominical, is approximately 30 minutes north. The newly built San Buenas Golf Course is 10 minutes away, and many other local attractions are close by; horseback riding, zip lines, off shore fishing and boating, etc.. For book lovers there is a library within walking distance.

A perfect retreat, honeymoon hideaway, or for the solitude of one, Casa Rica is a place which can be a comfortable home base for exploring the riches of Costa Rica, or a private hideaway to rest and revive.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: Originally Mac is from Texas and Sharon is from New Jersey. We met on the island of Andros in the Bahamas, and fell in love 'underwater' in the blue seas. That was many years ago and we've since traveled the world, and have found our home here in beautiful Costa Rica. Having lived for some years in Bali Indonesia, we were enchanted by the feel and beauty of the island, and have tried to bring a taste of that to our home here. Casa Rica in fact was built in Bali and transported here to Costa Rica. The Costa Rica lifestyle is laid back and the locals are friendly and welcoming. We love the remoteness and incredible scenery, plus the eclectic community Ojochal has to offer. Really great restaurants too! Casa Rica, Casa Bambu and Palm Spa are a dream come true for us. We enjoy spending our time doing projects on the property, making it a more enjoyable place to spend our time and share with travelers. Pura Vida!
