privacy Plus JUST ONE OF THE MANY POSITIVES
privacy Plus JUST ONE OF THE MANY POSITIVES
My husband Rudi and I have had the very fortunate opportunity to rent this wonderful home before it was officially listed for others on the internet Staying at their place provided us with some of the best memories of our multiple Costa Rica visits and our visits at their home convinced us that we too wanted a share of this life style Some of our most memorable moments were during the start of the rainy season when we would watch the black clouds head towards us over the mountains as we cooled in their refreshing pool and you could literally HEAR the rain coming - long before it actually arrived. Second most vivid memory was the mating strut of the chacalakras (I may have misspelled this) - around 5 every morning as several males and females visited their property The males would parade behind the females making amazing calls to her - and little dances which she chose to ignore - but they were enough to get me out of bed much earlier than I had planned so I could capture his act on video Don and Brendas house offers every comfort one could ever wish for - as well as privacy - and a feeling that you are the only ones in the area. We loved every minute of our time there - each and every time we were able to rent from them - and I can assure any new comers that they will feel exactly the same way as we do about their wonderful home.

Maison très agréable
Maison très agréable
Nous avons passé un mois dans cette maison qui est très agréable à vivre et très bien équipée. La maison est à 1,5 km d' Ojochal et il est préférable d'avoir un véhicule pour se déplacer (pas nécessairement un 4x4). Le jardin manque un peu d'entretien et la plantation de fleurs variées permettrait de voir plus d'oiseaux. Cependant, toucans, motmot, colibris, écureuils, papillons, iguanes et basilics sont visibles quotidiennement. Je recommande cette maison pour ses équipements et sa tranquillité.

If you are a bird watcher this is heaven. Our favorite part of the day is getting up in the morning and sitting aroung the pool or on the beautiful verandah, watching, listening and drinking coffee. It is so active you could not possibly sleep through it. Two Chestnut-mandibled Toucans would sit in the same tree at 5:15 am every morning, and about 13hrs. later same spot, same birds, everyday! Just to name a few Parrots, Parakeets, Motmot, Baird's Trogans and many hummingbirds were seen throughout the day. We could hear the Howler Monkey's from the house, could not see them. There were so many take your breath away moments at the house. Mainly the view from the verandah is one of them, deep primary rainforest, with the mountains in the background. You truly feel like you are a million miles away from civilization, but you are 5-10 min. drive to the grocery store, butcher, many renown Costa Rica restaurants and 10 min. to the closest beach. We all loved spending time in the pool at all hours of the day. The kids liked the variety of giant bugs seen, all were thankfully outside. (expect lots of variety of bugs when travelling Costa Rica.) Between Palmar Sur and Dominical there are about 10 beautiful beaches. I heard there are 18 waterfalls between these two towns, managed to go to 8 of them. (Leave NOTHING in your vehicle when sight-seeing, lots of petty theft all over CR) There is so much to do and see in this area. We were booked to stay at Cherry's Casa for 9 nights and ended up extending our stay for 12 nights. The house is clean, has everything you need and more, great cooking supplies, BBQ, WiFi works great. It was nice to have a phone for the local calls. You definately need a 4X4 vehicle, not only in Ojochal but I would recommend it for travelling thoughout Costa Rica. We have visited Costa Rica 4 Times and have travelled from North Pacific (Tamarindo) all the way to the South Pacific (Pavones) and for us the Osa Peninsula is truly one of the wonders of the world. We will be back in Ojochal to look for our vacation and retirement home. We met so many friendly locals and expats. Not only our kids, but my husband and I made lifelong friends. Needless to say LOVED Cherry's Casa, Ken Stone is a great host. "Thanks for everything Ken, and for inviting us to the fun night of dinner and drinks at the Roadhouse with you and Sharron and meeting your friends" Looking forward to the next trip to the Ojochal area!

A Wonderful Vacation Home
A Wonderful Vacation Home
While scrolling through the listings for Ojochal, this house caught my eye when I realized this was the lovely home that my husband and I had leased a short time ago. As we enjoyed our stay there so much, I felt compelled to let others know about our impressions. The house is situated on a lovely shaded lot with a beautiful open view to the green jungle-covered mountains that border Ojochal. Our favourite pastime was early morning coffee on the terrace which over-looks a small ravine with a running creek. Bird life abounds in multiple colors....our favourite was a pair of toucans who would land in a tree in front of the terrace for their morning berry-feast. The house is prettily decorated with tropical furniture and is very well maintained. While completely private, there are other homes in the neighbourhood. There is easy five minute access to all the amenities in Ojochal. For anyone visiting the Pacific Sur in Costa Rica, this property would offer a very enjoyable and memorable vacation.

Year Purchased: 2007
About: My wife and I live north west of Toronto, Ontario, Canada and have been in the real estate industry for over 28 years.
We had been travelling extensively in Costa Rica since 1997 and with every trip here, we fell more in love with the country and its' people and decided that it was where we wanted to spend more time as we neared retirement. We find the south Pacific area 'where the mountains meet the sea' to be the perfect mix for us with the close proximity to beaches and beautiful mountains with a wide diversity of animals, reptiles and birds. Ojochal is also home to many expats from several countries, with many from Canada, so it is a good place to meet like minded people.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
While there might be homes that enjoy a more dramatic view, gaining access to these homes, often involves travelling on some rather steep roads and even crossing rivers without bridges. Our home is located on a very accessible road, but still enjoys a nice jungle and mountain view with a night sky unpolluted by other residence lights and a particularily beautiful full moon view over the jungle.
