vacation rental description

Easy access up the Cinco Ventanas Road, minutes from the coastal highway, beaches, and the village of Ojochal, famous for its delightful restaurants you will find this beautiful, private and gated 3 bedroom jungle oasis.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE? In the backyard enjoying the fun of the large tiled swimming pool. A tropical, garden side swimming pool allows you to relax in the privacy of your own backyard which overlooks the blue Pacific Ocean offering beautiful ocean views of Isla Garza, the mouth of Rio Terraba, Central America’s longest river as it adjoins the Pacific Ocean. Views of Cano Island, a national park located 12 miles off shore, a renowned scuba diver and snorkeler’s underwater paradise.

Bordered by the Rio Media Luna, a year round river, with your very own private, maintained hiking trail. Meander down this short, easy hike to your own refreshing waterhole!

Do you like monkeys? Toucans? Parrots? Almost every morning you will awaken with the sunrise and the expressive Howler Monkeys with their distinctive sounds. The howlers travel back and forth usually returning in the evening. In the afternoon the white-faced monkeys usually sneak in....quiet except for their noisy leap from tree to listen for the trees rustling and branches moving. Large Flocks of toucans have been spotted here...and once you’ve heard the beautiful call of the toucan you will be hooked to hear more. Parrots visit often and sometimes nest over night chattering away until sunset. Squawking Scarlett macaws have been spotted here too, a most dazzling bird with spectacular red feathers highlighted in the tropical blue skies. Not to be outdone...there are a variety of butterflies that flit by all day long but the large, Blue Morpho butterfly can be spotted here almost daily.

traveler reviews for this ojochal house rental

Exotic & Luxurious Destination!

Review submitted: March 1, 2014   Date of arrival: February 13, 2014

We just returned from 10 days in Costa Rica and 8 days at this fabulous home. Having used VRBO before and occasionally finding that descriptions and pictures don't quite match the actual property, this property is exactly as portrayed, and is perhaps even understated. The home has every amenity needed to unwind and enjoy the sun, views, and exotic wildlife surrounding the property. It is a 5-star property yet not so opulent that you can't feel comfortable and make it your home during your stay.

If you aren't an early riser, you'll want to change that. The jungle begins to "wake up" at first light, which was 5:30 am during our stay. The howler monkeys start first, followed by the many exotic birds on and around the property, and within a half hour you have a full jungle symphony orchestra surrounding you as the sun comes up over the mountain tops. Truly spectacular!

Heather is extremely accommodating and helpful with connections for adventure tours, beaches, restaurants, and anything else you want to know about the area. There are many world class beaches within a half hour of the house, but we found the closest one, Playa Ventanas (10 minutes from front door to the beach) to be our favorite. It is long, deep, offers some shade, and was nearly deserted.

I have some suggestions to make your vacation a perfect experience. You'll need a rental car to access the property, and a 4x4 is mandatory in Costa Rica for everywhere off the main roads. If you're not comfortable driving a stick, confirm with your rental agency that they will have an automatic for you. We rented through Vamos (I highly recommend them) and thought this detail was arranged, but when we picked our Rav4 up they didn't have any automatics available. I'm comfortable with a stick, but was the only one in our party of 4 who could drive the car. Second, heed the advice on sunscreen. At only 9 degrees north of the equator, the sun is direct, close, and you can get a bad burn in only a half hour without protection. We brought SPF 30/50/70/85, and by day 2 were only using 50 and up and still got fantastic tans. Third, Ojochal is home to several world class restaurants. If you want to dine at many of them you will need reservations - make them before leaving home. We saw many hopeful diners leave disappointed because there weren't tables. Lastly, add on the GPS for your rental car. Maps are useless in Costa Rica except for very basic navigation, and the GPS was flawless.

Pura Vida!

Our Dream Vacation!!!

Review submitted: February 10, 2014   Date of arrival: February 1, 2014

What a perfect house and location for our family (my husband and I and our 4 young adult children)! We woke up to fabulous monkeys every morning, a beautiful sunrise and toucans in the trees. The house surpassed our expectations and was just gorgeous...we didn't want to leave. The bathrooms were huge as well as the closets and the kitchen had all the necessities. The drive up to the house was an adventure...and a 4x4 is a must...but the view was worth it. The location is perfect - groceries close by and beautiful beaches a short drive away. Both Heather and Ben were a great help with suggestions regarding activities in the area and Ben went above and beyond...we loved his recommendations for zip lining and horseback riding places...can't thank him enough!! The internet was intermittent which we managed to work through. Can't wait to plan our next Cosata Rican vacation!!

Your own bit of Jungle Paradise!

Review submitted: January 22, 2014   Date of arrival: December 30, 2013

As Heather guided us into our Jungle garden we just knew it would be good. She led us in by the swimming pool that straight away had our grandson, giving it a thumbs up. Heather showed us all around the commodious rooms and left us to fight over the bedrooms. That was easy, as they are all en-suite and large. The first floor balcony was a great view point for the jungle scenery and of course the bar!
Flora and fauna abound all around and take your breathe away. Monkeys, toucans of different species, vultures, frogs, humming birds, ibis, giant crickets, .......make sure you take wildlife book!
It was struggle to motivate everyone to go to the beach when it was so good at Ojochal,
The house itself is easily managed with lots of equipment, even a machete to collect your own coconuts and fruits. Night exploring with red torches was very interesting, even when we met our pool blowup crocodile that someone had left for us on the river trail. We can still hear the laughter!
A real chill out place with lots of things to see and do. We loved it!
