About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Property Summary:

This private, gated getaway on 13 acres is located in the scenic southern zone of Costa Rica in the quaint town of Ojochal. In addition to a panoramic view of the Ojochal Valley, mountains and ocean, the home is surrounded by 2 acres of landscaped gardens and home to many different varieties of birds. Quiet and relaxing with beautiful views from every window, plunge pool and terrace, this home cannot be seen from the road and is built on a natural plateau.

This property is truly a nature lover’s paradise. While sipping your morning coffee on the terrace see geckos, iguanas, hummingbirds, while listening to the parrots in the nearby trees and the howler monkeys in the rainforest.


We have a full time caretaker living on the property at the gate house that you can call on if need be.
The elevation is cooler than at sea level, the ceiling fans in every room and outside are usually sufficient for comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped however; if you don't feel like cooking there are several excellent restaurants in the area. We'll be glad to let you know a few of our favorites.


The Ojochal area offers the three prized elements of Costa Rica, endless empty beaches, the tropical rain forest, and the tropical cloud forest along the ridge. We are only minutes from our villa to the Pan American Highway, the breathtaking beaches along the coastline, and the incredible restaurants of Ojochal. There is a small store in Ojochal as well as supermarkets in Uvita (20 minutes away).

There are numerous activities available nearby. Cano Island is famous for diving and snorkeling. You can arrange zip-line canopy tours (try Osa Ziplining), whale watching, kayaking, horseback riding, birding, and numerous other activities and tours. A day trip to Corcovado National Park is possible, and Manuel Antonio, the most visited national park in the country, is an hour and a half away. Boruca, a mountain village named after the indigenous people who live there, is about an hours’ drive away. Crafts, such as the masks and woven purses and backpacks that you will see in many shops in CR can be purchased from the native artists in the village.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Ojochal, Costa Rica:
Ojochal Our property although within the village offers a little more piece and quiet than Uvita and Dominical. We have some of the best restaurants in the area. The town has quite a few French speaking families from Quebec. A great French baker as well as a few little shops and a grocery store. The wildlife is wonderful as well. A great place to relax and be with nature. Beaches are very close and very private. This is why we chose to buy here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy access from the main highway.
