vacation rental description

Would you like to experience the famous Osa Peninsula, from a luxurious 1875 sq ft Villa?

The open, high wood ceiling Villa, FULLY HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE, with modern amenities/furnishings and gorgeous views, lies in a gated 'jungle neighborhood' in hillside of the stunning Ojochal valley. Engage in the true Costa Rica experience, the comfort of quiet neighbors, and maintained (4x4) roads. Enjoy the howler monkeys in the surrounding mountains, or bird-watch on your walks to rivers and streams. Between Ojochal and Dominical are at least 6 amazing beaches, with caves, arches, surfing. Or just relax by the pool and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature all around! In the evening enjoy the calm and temperate weather of the outdoors, or the modern 'pleasures' that come with the home.

Groceries, gas, gifts, yoga and health food are in town. Ojochal is a small village well-known for its great international restaurants, half-way between Dominical and the local Palmar Sur airport.

About the Villa: The Villa has high wood ceilings with ceiling fans, air conditioning in the two master bedrooms, and a large open semi-circular living area. Off of the semi-circle are the entrances to the bedrooms and one full bathroom. Opposite the bedrooms and across from the main seating area are four large sliding glass doors that lead outside to the gorgeous tropical garden. Beautiful, colorful plants surround a pool and lounge area with views of lush tropical vegetation in the distance . The pool has a 'BaduJet Swimjet Treadmill' which creates a current so that you can swim 'in-place' for exercise, water-play, or massage. Also there is a basketball hoop for use with the pool.

The 'conveniences of the Villa': The kitchen has modern appliances which include a refrigerator/freezer, new microwave, new stove, blender, toaster, new garbage disposal, and new dishwasher. The plentiful exotic wood cabinets come completely appointed with place settings and cookware. A complete laundry room with washer and dryer is on-site. The home also has a new 46' LED Samsung HD television with surround sound, additional flat screen TV in one of the master bedrooms, Satellite TV with 40+ international stations, and a DVD player. Computer, all-in-one printer/scanner, and wireless internet are also available. Two new TREK 3700 mountain bikes complete with racks, baggage containers, and helmets, are available for use by the renters as is a bike rack for the car.

traveler reviews for this ojochal house rental

Felt like a home away from home!

Review submitted: April 21, 2014   Date of arrival: April 5, 2014

Villa Tranquila is a very comfortable house in an idyllic location. We are a family of 4 and took my parents and had plenty of room. It is off the beaten path and away from crowds so it was a very restful place to be. We all enjoyed cooling off in the pool after being out for the day. Although it was hot the house has fans everywhere and felt comfortable since it is at a high elevation.

Alan was very helpful with his directions and tips. We recommend having a 4 wheel drive car as the road to the house is unpaved and it takes about 15 minutes to get up the hill from the main paved road. We enjoyed the French bakery at the bottom of the hill and highly recommend the Indonesian restaurant up the road called Ylang Ylang. Cinco Ventanas beach is very close by and a beautiful beach to visit.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country and I highly recommend visiting it.

Stunning villa with all the amenities

Review submitted: November 16, 2013   Date of arrival: November 6, 2013

Three of us stayed at Villa Tranquila for a week. Located near Ojochal on the SW coast, we felt lucky to be in a part of the country that isn't overrun with tourists. The grounds were private, lushly landscaped with exotic blooms and shrubs. The pool was clean and refreshing, a welcome relief during the heat of the afternoon and a good way to cool off before sleeping. The inside of the villa was beautiful, soaring vaulted ceilings, tile floors, well appointed kitchen, and comfortable beds. The view was stunning. We found the location to be perfect and very convenient for those who want to venture into the Corcovado.

Alan was so helpful, providing information and answers to questions about the country, currency, getting around, things to do, places to go, etc.

Costa Rica is beautiful and should be on everyone's Destinations list. Villa Tranquila suited us perfectly and comes highly recommended from this traveler.

Wonderful setting in the hill near Ojochal

Review submitted: August 13, 2013   Date of arrival: July 31, 2013

Our stayof 4 nights in the villa was a great conclusion
to our vacation of three weeks in Costa Rica. While in Ojochal we dined at Citrus and Exotica,
two great restaurants. We spend a day at Marina Ballena and we went to Sierpe to do a great
boat tour of the mangrove ( in two hours we saw Howler Monkeys, Squirrel Monkeys, White
Face Monkeys, Crocodile, Caiman and many species of birds including the Mangroves Hawk
and Blue Heron). The arrival at the house was easy with the direction
send by the owner. The house was spacious and well furnished and it was a great deal. The location is wonderful in the hill near Ojochal with
a lot of birds. Thank you Alan.
