Recent Ojochal reviews

  • Paradise Found

    "My family just returned from an idyllic vacation in Costa Rica, ending with almost a week at Estilo de Vida. We agree with all the previous reviews, this place is heaven. I won't repeat all the comments that you can read in other reviews except to reiterate that the photos do not do it justice. If you are looking for a very private piece of paradise in the jungle, this place is it. We spent our early mornings with hikes on the excellent trails right on the property, spying monkeys, birds and butterflies, swimming under waterfalls and finding peace and beauty all around. We would come home and enjoy breakfast and pool time, then head out to one of the lovely restaurants in the area for lunch, and enjoy a different beach each afternoon. There is a grocery close by in Uvita where we picked up food to make dinner and then relaxed, watched the stars and played games in the evenings. We didn't want to leave! We wished we would have rented a 4x4 as our van did have a hard time making it up the driveway, but other than that I wouldn't have changed a thing. We highly recommend this property."

  • Paradise Found!

    "We echo everything written by our friend, Theresa K. What an incredible week and view from this "top of the world" oasis! The activities to experience in the area abound, e.g, snorkeling, zip-lining, beachcombing, boating, etc. The quality of the restaurants rival any in Europe...compliments of the large expat community of Americans, Canadians, and Europeans. The evenings on the terrace with magnificent sunsets and cool mornings for breakfast defined tranquility and peace. To ensure we had the best possible experience, Ken Stone (property manager) attended to every question and request. In addition, Rick and Diane (owners) were visiting the area and what a privilege to meet them! Rick even provided a personal e-mail with things to do/places to see while in San Jose before returning home. We simply cannot offer enough superlatives about the home and location...or Rick, Diane, and Ken, whom we now call friends. Most certainly, we will return! Thanks "friends"...."

  • Absolutely Delightful

    "My wife and I stayed at Toucan Tango for two weeks in late December 2014. We had a better than excellent time, due in no small part to the total environment of Toucan Tango. The attributes are evident from the photos: exquisite view over the rainforest canopy to the ocean, fantastic pool, a lovely home that is fully appointed and furnished. The details: if the elements of nature are not your thing.....then Toucan Tango is not for you. The howler monkeys, giant toads, and plethora of tropical birds are a symphonic backdrop for the entire evening and nighttime. Poolside kitchen is great. Even though there are a number of remarkable restaurants about 10 minutes away in Ojochal, we chose to spend most evenings cooking and dining on the patio. While I would characterize ourselves as adventurers, many days we never even got in our car, opting instead to hang out on the poolside patio and walking in the jungle surrounding the home. The patio is totally private. We were gracioiusly greeted by a neighborhood friend of the owners, who provided us with a thorough orientation. A very useful notebook for the house and region is provided by the owners. Their restaurant recommendations are spot on. The road accessing the house is a fairly rough gravel track which is steep in spots. Accordingly, the owners recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Our experience was that even when we forgot to switch our car into 4 wheel drive mode, there was no problem navigating the track. The house is very spacious. Kitchen is well appointed, and we love to cook. This place reflects great attention to aesthetic details. Great art throughout. Excellent ventilation. The BR's are all air conditioned, but we never once turned any of them on, preferring the gentle breeze provided by nature and about a dozen ceiling fans........even on the patio. The pool is one of the nicest I've experienced at a vrbo rental. Obviously, we are considering a return trip"

  • Comfortable House in Great Location

    "My wife and I stayed at the Cielo Grande house for two weeks and enjoyed it very much. During our stay, the toucans and green parrots flew through the yard each morning and most evenings, as well as several other types of birds. Humming birds frequented the feeder throughout the days. Early morning walks around the yard produced the best bird photos. Howler monkeys were often heard in the valley, sometimes close by, but never in the yard. Upper and lower sitting areas allowed for a variety of sceneries, and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The Boca Coronado restaurant (soda) about a half mile south of the entrance to Ojochal, on the highway, had good food at reasonable prices, and it was also a good location to photograph scarlet macaws in the trees on the beach. Several times that we were there a flock flew in by the soccer field. Of the higher-end restaurants in Ojochal, Exotica was very good, although Citrus was less than pleasing and overpriced. Our favorite restaurant was Ballena Bistro located about three quarters of the way to Uvita coming from Ojochal on the left (the side of the building says “Goat House”). This place had creative tasty food at relatively fair prices. The two close by activities that we enjoyed were the Osa Canopy Tour a few miles south, and the ATV tour in Uvita. Both were a fun time. Overall, this house is comfortable and in a great location at a very good price."
