About the property

3 Br 3 1/2 Bath, Expansive Ocean, Valley and Mountain Views

The unique, modern architecture of the recently completed, Villa Vista Milagrosa, is both stunning and functional. The villa's 600 sq. ft. main room offers comfort and space to relax. High vaulted ceilings combined with a folding glass wall and large windows allows for the tropical indoor/outdoor living experience and captures the wonderful cool coastal and mountain breezes. A large 10 ft diameter ceiling fan gently moves the air when the breezes subside in the late afternoon. You can relax by one of two pools and sunbathe on the large mirador that offers a spectacular panoramic view of the blue ocean, rugged mountains and lush, green valley. If you are an early riser you can enjoy a cup of coffee or yoga while listening to flocks of parrots and howler monkeys. Later in the day you can relax and watch the beautiful tropical sunsets, which are simply magnificent.

Villa Vista Milagrosa has 3 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, access to the pool, and fantastic ocean views, providing the ideal footprint for several vacationing couples, or for families with children.

About Christopher & Debra Kent

We built our retirement home after searching many countries. Only Costa Rica stood out for us as it provided a beautiful setting with both mountain and ocean views. The mountains meet the sea at the beaches where you can spend hours without seeing another person! We felt safe and were welcomed by the native Costa Ricans who are a friendly people, especially to Gringos like us who are not yet bilingual! So choosing Costa Rica was easy, but building a home in a foreign country was scary! We stayed in many houses and hotels in the area for about 4 years before we bit the bullet and broke ground. By staying in so many houses we learned what we wanted, learned what didn't work well and learned what was important to us. We had our home designed with multiple roof lines to capture a view with each step you take to the main level , while using the roof angles to capture the breezes from the valley.

We have fulfilled our dream, and look forward to leaving the cold Ohio winters to retire at Villa Vista Milagrosa when our 2 kids are off to college! We hope that Villa Vista Milagrosa and the southern zone of Costa Rica together make your vacation the most memorable!

What a view what a location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. This house has it all. Chris (owner) Karen (property manager) could not have been more accommodating. We had a great time in the pool and on the grounds. Great food choices in the area. Great surfing and beaches. Waterfalls in the area are great as well. The drive from SanJose is worth it to spend time in this great area.

Thanks for a great vacation.

Fantastic Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to Costa Rica, and 3rd in the Uvita / Ojochal area. This home is beautiful and the design and layout is fabulous; definitely our favourite home so far. The property is high enough up the mountain to have a great ocean view, but also not so high up that you miss the wildlife. We saw monkeys, toucans and macaws in the nearby trees on several mornings. The property is also beautifully landscaped. Both the owner and the property managers (Karen & Keith) were very helpful. Thank you Debra & Chris for sharing your property with us. Wishing we were still there....

From start to finish the house continued to amaze us. Prior to arrival the communication was seamless, from directions, adventures, town map, suggestions, phone numbers , and house info. Our caretakers Keith and Karen were phenomenal, bringing extra propane for grilling , fixing wifi, making sure we were comfortable , and explaining the in's, and out's. once you enter the property your stunned by the mountaintop views; expansive, vast, and picturesque. Not shown in pictures is the amazing staircase from the carport to the perfect pool; big, clean , and perfect for lounging all day in the sun! Each room has its own character, and bathroom. All bedrooms connect to the wrap around porch connected to the pool! Ample mood lighting for midnight swimming,listening to the jungle sounds, or rooftop hanging in the foot pool for lunch and relaxing. The kitchen/living room(s) was equip with more then we could have expected, pots and pans , cups, utensils, nothing was forgotten for cooking a gourmet dinner in the jungle. With a kitchen table for 6 and an island for 4, large families would have no problems entertaining for a day home not at the beach. The living room with the "big ass fan" was much needed , with it off ;you can feel the humidity and warmth Costa Rica's noted for, with it on...feels like your walking into a perfectly air conditioned day spa. An extra sitting area near the accordion glass doors entering the main pool area with lounger chairs , and remote controlled retractable screen to keep bugs out. The master bathroom stole the show with huge deep soaker tub, double vanity, and glass shower, with jet sprayers. Every bedroom has air conditioning not that you'll need it with French sliding doors and huge fans in each . From top to bottom, inside and outside , every detail was thought about . We couldn't have made a better decisions for staying in Costa Rica in the mountaintop mansion! With so much to see and do , I can't see myself staying anywhere else besides this house! Can't wait to come back and enjoy another magical getaway in this gem!!

Hats off to the perfect hosts!

You made this a magical trip !

Until next time !

Owner's Response: David, We are so glad you had such a good time at Villa Vista Milagrosa! Thank you for your kind review. We hope that our guests enjoy the amenities to be able to prepare a gourmet meal when not enjoying all of the fabulous restaurants in Ojochal.. You'll be happy to hear that we have had a professionally installed huge shade sail over the top patio to provide for more shade and enjoyment of the sunrises and beautiful sunsets! We were at our home the week before you and had no trouble with the wifi ... the jungle has its moments sometimes , but we are glad the wifi man and our caretakers were able to address the problem. We hope that you got to take advantage of the cooler and beach chairs for a relaxing day at our beautiful 7 beaches so close to the house. Hopefully you might have seen a whale? We had heard when we were there that 3 whales were spotted on another renters excursion. Looking forward to your return ! Debra and Chris

Incredible home. Beautifully designed and perfectly outfitted. I could happily live here!

  • 5 of 5

Very thorough and responsive communication from the owners and property managers. We were worried about making it up since we didn't have 4WD but we didn't have any issues. You have to know how to drive though!

Beautiful pool and living area. Loved the "big ass fan". Saw howler monkeys and tucans from the pool deck!

An incredible home in an incredible location

  • 5 of 5

This is hands down the best property we've ever rented. The house is beautiful and comfortable. As beautiful as the pictures are, they do not do it justice. The owners were very responsive during the rental process and the local property managers were great to work with as well.

We travelled with 4 adults, and three kids ages 10, 11, and 11. The house was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, sheets, towels. etc. The beds are super comfortable and the living room was great. The 4wd was definitely helpful for the drive up, especially in the rain. Everyone loved the infinity pool. We loved going to the upper level deck in the morning and listening to the birds and monkeys. Wildlife is everywhere. We didn't see any monkeys, but saw coatis, toucans, parrots, and tons of other birds and lizards.

The town of Ojochal and the surrounding communities were great. There is no shortage of activities. We went hiking to a waterfall, visited several beaches, went zip lining, took a day trip to Manuel Antonio, and did a night walk yet there was still plenty of activities we didn't have time to get to. We will save them for our next trip. The kids are already asking when we can come back. This home was great, do not hesitate to rent it!
