About the Property

A Most Unique Home In Costa Rica. Special price starting April 17th.

When we first laid our eyes on this property we fell in love. We have searched in many countries to find our perfect vacation home. This property is so unique and we have never seen anything like it before.
The main house is a one bedroom two bath home. The one acre property has very large beautiful trees that provide much shade. We have planted pineapple, lemon, sugar cane, mango, apple and banana trees.
Many people have described the property as magical.
It was featured on House Hunters International in December 2013.
For the last few years we have improving the property. We have added a 16x23 foot covered palapa next to the house to give a large outdoor living area. We have remodeled the down stairs bathroom, redone the floors in the whole house and put new counter tops, sink and cabnits in the kitchen. The whole house has been repainted.
This home is hand formed concrete with curved walls and artful carved wood doors and windows. It is a home that inspires creativity. It is a perfect place for writers, singers and artists or anyone that wants to relax, unwind and get back in touch with their inner child.
The upstairs has one bedroom and one bath with two balconies, one overlooking the grounds and pool and the rear one overlooking the jungle. The downstairs has one bath, kitchen and living room with flat screen TV and internet. The kitchen most people would call 'cute.' It is comfortable with all the appliances you would need in a vacation home.
We have recently finished a 16' by 24' covered Palapa next to the house which adds a large outdoor living area.
The property itself is over an acre with very large trees towering over the pool. There is a grand stairway leading up from the pool to a 700 square foot party patio.
Next to the pool is a casita with one bedroom, one bath and living room.
The town of Ojochal is a quiet friendly town near the beaches on the south pacific coast. The jungle in this area goes right down to the beaches. We have spent many hours strolling down the sand watching the monkeys in the trees and seeing the Macaws flying overhead. The nearest beach from our property is only 5 minutes away and you can get to 6 different beaches within 30 minutes.
Ojochal is also know for its great restaurants. We can say we have never had a bad in any restaurant here.
We are only 20 minutes away from the Whales Tale which is a big tourist attraction and an hour away from Manual Antonio National Park.
We would also consider a long term rental. Contact us for details.
