About the Property
4 bdr/2 ba, full kitchen/furnishings, internet, Sat HDTV, pool, gardens, beach
About the Villa: The Villa has high wood ceilings with ceiling fans, air conditioning in the two master bedrooms, and a large open semi-circular living area. Off of the semi-circle are the entrances to the bedrooms and one full bathroom. Opposite the bedrooms and across from the main seating area are four large sliding glass doors that lead outside to the gorgeous tropical garden. Beautiful, colorful plants surround a pool and lounge area with views of lush tropical vegetation in the distance . The pool has a 'BaduJet Swimjet Treadmill' which creates a current so that you can swim 'in-place' for exercise, water-play, or massage. Also there is a basketball hoop for use with the pool.
The 'conveniences of the Villa': The kitchen has modern appliances which include a refrigerator/freezer, new microwave, new stove, blender, toaster, new garbage disposal, and new dishwasher. The plentiful exotic wood cabinets come completely appointed with place settings and cookware. A complete laundry room with washer and dryer is on-site. The home also has a new 46' LED Samsung HD television with surround sound, additional flat screen TV in one of the master bedrooms, Satellite TV with 40+ international stations, and a DVD player. Computer, all-in-one printer/scanner, and wireless internet are also available. Two new TREK 3700 mountain bikes complete with racks, baggage containers, and helmets, are available for use by the renters as is a bike rack for the car.
The open, high wood ceiling Villa, with modern amenities/furnishings and gorgeous views, lies in a gated 'jungle neighborhood' on the hillside of the stunning Ojochal valley. Engage in the true Costa Rica experience, the comfort of quiet neighbors, and maintained roads. Enjoy the howler monkeys in the surrounding mountains, or bird-watch from the Villa or on your walks to rivers and streams.
Ojochal is fifteen minutes by car from the Villa and offers a world class restaurant, authentic French bakery, well-stocked grocery store, and a bar/restaurant frequented by visitors and locals alike. It is halfway from Dominical and the local Palmar Sur airport.
Between Ojochal and Dominical are at least 6 amazing beaches, with caves, arches, surfing. The larger town of Uvita is 15 minutes from Ojochal and offers two large continental-type super-markets, three banks with ATM machines, hardware stores, gift shops, a bus stop on the inter-city line, excellent medical and dental care, a visitor's center, and several bar/restaurants.
Or just relax by the Villa pool and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature all around! In the evening enjoy the calm and temperate weather of the outdoors, or the modern 'pleasures' that come with the Villa.

About the owner: I grew up in an international family. My first trip to Europe was at the age of 12. At 16 I spent three months traveling by myself, and with other Europeans I met along the way, through most of Western and Eastern Europe (before the fall of the Berlin Wall). I lived and studied in France and Spain and am fluent in both languages. In addition to my international interests, I play the piano and the guitar. I enjoy the ballet as well as the symphony, and currently sing in an auditioned 100 person semi-professional choir that performs in my home's (Eugene, OR) main concert hall. In addition to the above, my educational interests have always been in science and mathematics. I have studied at Dartmouth College; and received B.S., M.S., and Ph. D. degrees in Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. I have been a regular faculty member (professorial rank) at the University of Utah and Oregon State University. A passion of mine has been fine woodworking. My work has been displayed at some of the finest galleries on the west coast and can be seen at www.finefurnituredesigns.net. I have three wonderful children (pictured above with me) and a step-grandchild on the way.
Why the Owner Chose Ojochal, Costa Rica:
I came to Costa Rica for my first visit relatively late in my life. During that trip, I found what is now 'Villa Tranquila.' I fell in love with both the property, people, and country. A truly unique, unspoiled, tropical paradise. A place to 'get away from it all,' return to a slower pace of life, and a greater proximity to nature and all that it has to offer
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I try and treat my clients as honored guests in my own home, and offer them if they are coming for the first time a 'once in a lifetime' experience. Their enjoyment is my own. Knowing that they can be awakened by the howler monkeys or a cacophony of birds, watching the sun set over an unspoiled tropical and ocean vista, enjoying the temperate year round climate, swimming in the warm, clear ocean at the close unspoiled, unpopulated beaches, lounging by the pool at the Villa, watching any one of the many movies or satellite TV stations with family and friends on the 46' LED HDTV with surround sound at night, or just relaxing in the luscious gardens of the Villa at the end of the day. Villa Tranquila is not to be missed.
