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 Puntarenas

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.

Blistful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this home while traveling the gorgeous country of Costa Rica was an unforgettable experience. For starters, the home was paradise in and of its self! Every speck of the house was comfortable, spacecous and clean. This home truly expressed the “pura-vida” lifestyle not only through the beautiful layout but with the exotic scenery and animal life surrounding it. Every morning the parrots would be chriping away and I would walk outside near the pools overlooking the colorful jungle as well as the ocean, it was unreal! The location of the home was perfect as well, a five minute drive to the beach (~15 minute walk) and several delicous restaraunts near by as well!

Overall, visiting this peacful country was a memorable experience to say the least, and staying at this home made it that much better.

You Won't Find A More Gorgeous Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was blown away by this incredible home! It was by far the very best place we stayed during our 2 week vacation in Costa Rica. We love the city of Ojochal and will definitely be back. This home is flawless - beautiful inside and out, tastefully done, and very clean, comfortable and safe. It is totally upscale by American standards and we were amazed to find it in the jungles of Costa Rica. We were surrounded by incredible wildlife and flora (toucans, parrots, lemurs, etc.) The owners were amazing at making us feel completely at home and making sure our every need was taken care of. They are lovely and kind people! We basked in the beauty and peace we felt both in the home and out by the pools. Our family's main goal while staying in Ojochal was to do some humanitarian work and the owners were able to give us several options of community projects we could help with before our arrival. They helped us ultimately do humanitarian work at the local school as well as at the turtle beach patrol a few minutes away. We were able to see a sea turtle digging a nest while we were on patrol! The large variety of food in Ojochal is world class and some would rival 4 and 5 star restaraunts in America. This community is truly a gem and we cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay in this town, and especially in this impeccable home.

Paradise with a View!

  • 5 of 5

Simply outstanding! This home is truly an amazing getaway as it is located at the top of the hill overlooking the water and the beautiful city of Ojochal. The house comes equipped with an outstanding backyard, a pavilion with hammocks, and two gorgeous swimming pools. The home is conveniently located minutes from several beaches, delicious restaurants, Nauyaca Waterfalls, and several other exciting tours. We loved our stay and highly recommend this home away from home.

Ojochal's Castle on a Hill

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home away from home! When the jungle and the ocean are your backyard and you can enjoy them from one of the two swimming pools or the pavilion's hammocks, it doesn't get much better. And the house itself is unparalleled--very clean, beautifully decorated, and instantly homey. We loved our host's recommendations for the area's best food (Exotica), hiking (Nauyaca Waterfall), beaches (Playa Ventanas), tours (Diamonte Canyoning Tour), and local going-ons (Dominical's surf contest). We never would have been able to find all of those places on our own, and every one of their recommendations exceeded our expectations. And at just a five minutes drive away from the beach, I can't imagine there being a better place to call home in Ojochal. We definitely weren't ready to leave, and can't wait to return!
