Relaxing & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our young kids (6 and 4 years old) a total of six days and we loved it. The house is perfectly equipped, more than expected. We did not have to use the air conditioning, the ceiling fans were more than enough. The neighborhood is really quiet and friendly. And the pool is what makes La Casa Cereza a perfect place. It's located about 10 minutes drive up the mountain from the main road, enough to reach some altitude, ocean breeze and better view. And we found that the closest beach, playa Tortuga, is only 5 minutes from the same road and best for daily use while plenty others are still not that further​ away. It's managed by professionals and everyone including the owner are super cooperative and available. We strongly recommend La Casa Cereza.

Great base from which to explore

  • 4 of 5

Ojochal is a wonderful place from which to explore the surrounding area. Casa Cereza's 2 bedrooms and 1 large bathroom was perfect for us: 2 couples. The pool and the view are great at the beginning and the end of the day. Only the bedrooms have AC but this would only be a problem if you are staying at the house all day.which we were not. To stay here a 4x 4 is important because the location is towards the end of a gravelly/ rocky road and about 3.5 km from the Costanera sur .village turn off.

Privacy and Wonderful Owners

  • 4 of 5

This comfortable 2 bedroom home was perfect for our first trip to Costa Rica. It is quite a drive from the San Jose airport but a beautiful drive the entire way. Once you get off the main highway, the road to the home is quite bumpy and steep towards the end. But, once you get to the home it is nothing but relaxation. The air conditioning in each bedroom was very welcome to us who are not used to humidity. Along this line, the private pool was amazing!! We were in it everyday. I didn't get the opportunity to see much wildlife - only one lizard, and several birds - but we had a pet frog a couple of days that enjoyed the pool as well. The owners/managers were very accommodating when we had to cut our trip short. The home was near several beaches, Uvita and Dominical. Although I wouldn't suggest staying here if you do not have a vehicle. The price was wonderful. We were happy with our choice in accommodations for our first trip to Costa Rica. I would have given it 5 stars, but the road dropped it down.
