Ojochal house description

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. Flat screen TV with surround sound, CD & DVD library and I-pod docking station. Spacious master bedroom with queen bed and master bath with double sink vanity with marble top and huge walk in corner glass shower looking out to landscaping. Built in closets with safe for valuables. Glass doors opening to pool area and deck overlooking cascading stream. Upstairs 2 queen bedrooms each with private bathrooms. Views of ocean and mountains in each. Custom wood vanities with marble tops and large closets. Walk-in shower in one bath and tub/shower in second bath.

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.

                              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.

                              About the owner: 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.

                              Why the Owner Chose Ojochal:
                              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!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              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.
