Property description

This new, architect designed house sits on a hill top looking down on spectacular views. It is backed by mountain views, and looks out 40 kms. across the Terraba valley to the distant mountains. The ocean is visible over a wide area, and sunsets are always visible. The curving driveway has an electric powered gate, and the community itself is gated with a guardhouse and barrier on the only access road.
Although isolated there are neighbours and shops are only 20 minutes away.
You will not tire of the changing views, as clouds sweep across the valley.
There is a Toyota RAV4 available for rent, with the property
The main bedroom has 180 degree views from the bed. There is an en-suite washroom. The second bedroom has two single beds, and sliding doors to a patio, again with great views. The third bedroom also doubles as an office. There is a fold out bed, and sliding doors to a patio, with a fan and light, plus the million dollar view.
The large living room with a cathedral ceiling of two-tone teak, has picture windows with a panoramic view of ocean, estuary, mountains and valleys.
Being high up, and looking down all round, there is always a breeze by day or night, making air-conditioning unnecessary, though the are quiet ceiling fans in all rooms, and even on the patio.
The patio is a large area between the living space and the pool. There are comfortable chairs, because you will never tire of the view.
You will wake each morning to the sound s of howler monkeys, birds, crickets and morning noises as the world awakens At 6.00 am the air is quiet and still. There is the amazing scent from the Ylang ylang trees, the alleged source of Channel #5. The curved driveway is bordered by a hibiscus hedge on one side and Bourgenvillia on the other. A weekly gardener keeps the grounds trimmed, and will take care of the pool.
Your privacy is assured by the closed gates and the long driveway. Neighbours are mainly Canadian, some live in the area year round. One of them acts as manager, and will be very helpful with any problems.
Another friends arranges trips.
Whatever your interests, this is a fabulous luxurious villa which you will enjoy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a retired GP and wife from Canada, we have spent part of each year in Costa Rica for the last 12 years. Hobbies are hiking, aviation, photography, blue water sailing.

Why the Owner Chose Ojochal:
This is an amazing country, and this southwest ocean area is the most scenic, and has the biggest diversity of plants, birds and animals. The rain forest surrounds, and the plants and flowers stay green all year round. We can include a 4WD RAV4 at extra cost.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
For tranquility, and isolation, yet with full facilities, this location is hard to beat, but what is impossible to beat is the incredible, jaw-dropping 360 degree view. Only one other house is visible across the valley. A manager lives close by, if you need help or advice. He is available by phone or radio.
