About Kim

As a self-employed family, living in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle, we had the rare opportunity to take time with our teenage children to explore new areas and experience different cultures. Our family's travels eventually brought us to Central America's Tropical Paradise. After vacationing in Costa Rica a few times, we knew this would become an ideal location for our retirement. As fate would have it, things progressed much faster than anticipated and we relocated to the Southern Zone of Costa Rica with our two teens and family dog and cat in 2012. We had previously researched multiple locations in Central and South America and Ojochal was the clear choice. Now that our children have reached adulthood, we look forward to the opportunity and privilege to share our dream home with others.

Kim purchased this house in 2013

Why Kim chose Ojochal

Ojochal is where the mountains meet the sea, where dolphins play amongst the waves and where humped backed whales and turtles come to visit throughout the year. It was the perfect place to build our dream home. A quaint village and a local Tico farming community has welcomed many expatriates and snow birds from the US, Canada, France, Germany, as well as other European countries. This diversity has gained Ojochal the reputation of the best dining in all of Costa Rica. These premier restaurants include world cuisine, Mediterranean, Italian, Indonesian, French and Moroccan. All in an intimate and personal setting, it provides the true PURA VIDA experience without ever feeling like a tourist.

What makes this house unique

Built to take full advantage of the ocean view and breezes, this home provides an open floor plan allowing the outdoors in. Designed for a family of four and their guests, the property features many areas for entertaining, creating a welcoming environment for all. Spectacular jungle and ocean views are highlighted by four expansive sliding doors and four additional exterior doors. Close enough to hear and see the ocean surf break along the shore and with more than 450 species of birds in the local region, you may find yourself sitting in the reflection pool with a drink, watching and listening to the sights and sounds of nature. Howler monkeys, Blue Morpho butterflies, hummingbirds, iguanas, scarlet macaws, green parrots and toucans are all regular visitors of our home.

This house exceeded all my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all my expectations! One of the highlights of a wonderful vacation was simply waking up and going outside to lay in a hammock taking in the view or to listen to the jungle rain. The interior of the house is very spacious and modern. When the front door and sliding glass doors are opened during the day there is a fantastic breeze that kept the house very comfortable. The Infinity pool was a great place to sit and enjoy the majestic view. The second pool was good for more active swimming.

I was also impressed by the surrounding area. There is a great selection of restaurants very close to the house. Check out the Bamboo Room for live music and a fun atmosphere or Citrus for a quieter gourmet meal in a gorgeous setting. The beach is also very accessible with a quick drive.

Our hosts were very helpful and communicative. Also the house felt very secure and private. We were all so grateful that we got to spend the last leg of our trip at this spectacular property.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Paraiso. The house is spacious and modern and very thoughtfully designed. It catches the breezes and has wonderful views. If we weren't exploring the area, we were on the patio watching the birds and and enjoying the fabulous sunrises and sunsets. There were 9 people in our group and we never felt crowded or on top of each other.

We were at the house over Christmas and we had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook a Christmas dinner. The kitchen is very well appointed and you could cook anything from a 3 layer cake to homemade pizza.

Kim was wonderful in answering questions prior to our stay and suggested several activities and tour companies in the area that were amazing.

We were a little worried that staying in a house so far south would be out of the way. No need to worry. Everything you need is in Ojochal (beaches, great restaurants and a local grocery store) or in nearby Uvita (more beaches, larger grocery stores, bank, gas station).

We highly recommended staying at this house and would return again in a heartbeat.

Truly a vacation paradise

  • 5 of 5

What wonderful owners to share their amazing house with other people. The pictures are just a tiny glimpse into this fantastically peaceful, serene, and beautiful setting. The home was clean, well maintained, and stocked well for our 10 days of hanging out, relaxing, and exploring Ojochal.

We felt right at home after a warm welcome, and immediately got about relaxing. The view over the valley and straight to the ocean, was so calming. Add to that the sounds, smells, breezes, and sunsets, and we never wanted to leave. When we did venture out, the infinity soaking pool welcomed us back as watched the sunset on another day in paradise.

We look forward to our next trip to Costa Rica and will definitely rent again. What great memories! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Amazing Property with Ocean and Jungle View

  • 5 of 5

It was an incredible experience to spend four weeks in this cozy and luxurious house. There is a big pool, three modern bathrooms and a pavilion that is perfect for working out or yoga. It's only five minutes to the beach and when the sky is clear you can witness a gorgeous sunset. With four bedrooms, a spacious living room and a big dinner table it is perfect for bigger groups or families.
