Overview

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!

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!

This place is amazing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three kids (ages 5 to 8) stayed here in February 2017 and had a fantastic time. The house, views and pool are nicer than even the pictures convey. The closet beach is about 10 minutes away, was basically empty and had great wave and sand. There are some local restaurants a short drive away but we preferred to cook at home. This is the perfect spot for anyone looking for a few days of seclusion and relaxing.

Beautiful property, great location to immerse yourself in Costa Rica and relax

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely wonderful with views from almost everywhere of the mountains and the sea. The landscaping is beautiful, the location wonderful and the caretakers-Kevin and Karen-couldn't be better. The howler monkeys made sure we woke up just before dawn in time to watch the sunrise over the mountains from the upper deck and the sunsets were wonderful too. Thanks to Debra and Chris for sharing this lovely property with others that feel the need to renew their soul. Thanks as well for insisting we have a 4x4 as it was definitely necessary. I will revisit as soon as possible

A stay in the jungle with a modern twist

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous property! We stayed four nights last week and enjoyed our time at Villa Vista Milligrosa. The home is well equipped with an impressive list of everything you need, it's secure and so beautifully decorated. The home's design is well thought out, clean and comfortable. The gardens around the home are filled with tropical flowers and butterflies. The pool is refreshing. Although the location feels remote, there's quite a bit to do in the area once you research your options. The drive to the home is adventurous. The community members we met were kind and helpful. Prior to our visit, the owners were so helpful and responsive as we tried to plan the trip. Thank you for a memorable vacation!

Nicest rental I've ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

This really was probably the nicest place I've ever stayed. Very unique property and it was absolutely incredible. We loved lounging in the footpool and looking out at the mountains and ocean. We were 3 couples and the 3 bedrooms were all very comfortable and all have their own bathrooms.

We did not have 4 wheel drive but had a manual SUV and had no issues in the dry weather getting to and from the house.

The town of ojochal was very small and you definitely have to drive to everything.

Overall an absolutely incredible property that you will not regret staying in.
