Recent Ojochal reviews

  • A beautiful retreat in Ojochal

    "My husband and I were able to stay at the guesthouse for two weeks in early March. The house was perfect for the two of us. It is very well maintained, clean and furnished very nicely. The outside patio was great for a quiet breakfast, or dinner - or just enjoying the surrounding gardens. The last day of our stay we even saw a troop of howler monkeys travel from tree to tree across the back yard. A dip in the saline pool was a refreshing way to spend some of the hot afternoons. The owners were very helpful since they are quite familiar with the area. The location of the guesthouse is just off the main highway, so you don't have to drive on the "local" roads much at all. Ojochal is only about a 45 minute drive from Sierpe to the south and Quepos to the north - making it an easy drive to so many attractions! It is also a great location with many nearby beaches to explore and gourmet restaurants to enjoy. We really enjoyed our stay - and would love to go back and stay here again in the (near!!) future."

  • Private comfort in a rainforest paradise

    "My husband and I are quite the travelers, and this home has been, by far, my favorite vacation home. It is situated in the south coastal rainforest, nestled on a mountainside, with gorgeous views. The house is very well-equipped and designed for privacy and comfort. It has tall, screened windows downstairs that open, which affords the sensation that you are bringing the rainforest inside. The downstairs master suite is roomy, air-conditioned, and has a luxury bath with a large, walk-in shower and tub area. The two upstairs bedrooms share a long deck with even better views. The house has an open feel to it with many areas to view the rainforest while indoors. You WILL see howlers, hummingbirds, bats, and toucans, as well as, multiple insect species. No need for an alarm clock; the howlers will awaken you around 5-5:30am. We had great opportunities to observe the howlers as they often came up to the trees along the yard. We were also fortunate to be visited by a male coati that we named El Gusto. We were able to hand-feed him pineapple, and he would follow us around the yard. There were no problems with booking or check-in. The local management was NOT intrusive. In fact, we saw only one person during our stay, and he came to service the pool. The house was very clean and in good order. We arrived to find fresh fruit, crackers, etc. Very nice touch! The ONLY negative is the road to the house. Four-wheel drive is recommended. However, please do not deny yourself a comfortable, memorable stay in this home, as most of the roads we traveled in Costa Rica require four-wheel drive. In my view, if you stay on the main roads, you’ve missed much of the magic that is Costa Rica! In all honesty, I became quite homesick for piece of paradise after our departure and I am looking forward to our next booking."

  • Semaine de rêve!

    "Quel endroit inspirant!!! Le paradis !!! La propriété et l'environnement ont été propices à rendre notre séjour au Costa Rica un souvenir précieux, gravé à jamais dans nos mémoires. Cela fait presqu'un mois que nous sommes rentrés du Costa Rica, et lorsque je ferme les yeux, je revis encore avec tout mes sens, le spectacle du lever du soleil et le chant des oiseaux. Quel sentiment incroyable de pouvoir observer des perroquets et des singes, et ce, café à la main autour de la Villa de rêves! Nous avons été si bien à la Villa, il ne manquait vraiment de rien! La résidence est extrêmement propre et si conviviale que nous nous sommes senti à l'aise dès notre arrivée. Cet endroit est si inspirant, le spectacle offert par l'environnement est unique! Il est impossible de parler de notre séjour à la Villa sans parler de Kumari qui a participé à optimiser notre séjour à la Villa. Quelle femme sympathique! Grâce à elle, nous avons pu obtenir de bonnes adresses et elle nous a su répondre à tout nos questionnements. Toujours souriante et disponible, nous avions l'impression de l'avoir toujours connue. Merci Kumari! Nous ne t'oublierons pas! Encore une fois, merci aux propriétaires de la Villa. Quel endroit magnifique. Un paradis sur Terre. Une chose est certaine, une partie de notre coeur est resté au Costa Rica!!!!! À la prochaine!"

  • Private Paradise!

    "What a beautiful place to call home for nine days! The house has everything you could possibly need to live comfortably and lots of outdoor furniture to enjoy the gorgeous views. The pool is perfect to cool off in and the laundry a nice convenience that not all VRBO's in CR include. We saw toucans, an iguana, squirrel monkeys, gekkos and heard the howler monkeys a few times. Karen has created an information book about restaurants and sites in the area; a great resource. Denise, the property manager was invaluable, going out of her way to make our visit the best it could be making many wonderful suggestions of places to visit and even joined us a few times. David, who does the pool cleaning and other general maintenance was also very helpful and kind each time we saw him and talked with us about life in CR. We saw David more frequently than most guests likely would as there was some issues with a toilet but he was very quick to come up with a solution. As others have said, a 4x4 is recommended but the drive would not deter us from returning. The VRBO is very central to many surrounding sites: -Manuel Antonio park is just over 1hrs away, where we saw a great array of animals. -The Boruca Village, where they make wood masks and weave fabric the way their ancestors did, is about an hour from the VRBO and was a quick half-day trip. There is also a beautiful waterfall in Boruca (ask at the museum for directions to the Cascada). -Cascada El Pavon (waterfall) is very close to the VRBO and once you park it’s only a two minute walk to the fall so well worth a visit. There is a nice swimming hole there. -The Corcovado and Mangrove tour with Perla del Sur tour company is a must do! You take a beautiful boat ride to Corcovado where you will see tons of wildlife, they supply lunch and then you go to a beautiful waterfall where you can swim and then boat through mangroves. Take hiking boots for the trails. -Playa Ventana beach is nearby and is famous for its many caves. -Playa Dominical is also fairly close and is a really cute Rastafarian/hippy village. -Playa Ballena Beach Club was one of our favourite stops. It's close to the VRBO and is owned by a nice couple. They have food and good drinks. They are also on a beautiful sandy beach that we greatly enjoyed. We also visited many fabulous nearby restaurants; Mama y Papás, Citrus, La Fagota, and Azul. We would happily recommend this VRBO and will return one day (hopefully sooner than later!)"
