Awesome jungle home
Total privacy and quiet in the jungle. All you hear are the birds and monkeys. All you see is the ocean the jungle and the wildlife and the stars at night.Pictures of the house exterior are outdated. The foliage has grown in a lot since they were taken. Huge pool is great. Everything in good working order and is well equipped. Bedrooms are all separate from each other. That was great for our teens but wouldn’t be good for young kids. Doors to bedrooms could use a cover to keep early morning light out. You have to go up and down a steep staircase to get to pool and bedrooms. Drive was at least 15 minutes on a bumpy road from the highway turnoff to Ojochal. Longer if you drive slower than my husband which includes most people. We loved it and would rent it again but you need to be sure it’s right for you.
Beautiful home, wonderful stay
This review is long overdue. We had the opportunity to stay here in November during our travels through Costa Rica. Booking the home was a breeze. Sonya and her husband were wonderful! They helped us get set up in the home, told us about restaurants and things to do. This house has the best of both worlds. It is in the jungle with an awesome ocean view. The road after going through Ojochal is bumpy and dirt but well worth it. The home is equipped with everything you need short of food. There is a grocery store in Ojochal and other surrounding towns. This is a great place to stay to see the southern end of Costa Rica. Love this place!
Everything we expected and more!
This beautiful home is all you would expect and require for a relaxing, luxurious rest and relax and enjoy the Pura Vida lifestyle. It is a challenge to reach - do take 4 wheel drive, do follow their directions they are spot-on. Do stop at the market before you go up - if you see fruit stands as you drive down - do stop - the pineapple is the sweetest, juiciest you'll ever taste. Sonya & her husband were a delight and helpful throughout our stay with answers to our questions & suggestions on dining etc. Do NOT expect to spend much time on the internet - connection is sketchy and we never had television - best week we've had in years! (sketchy due to location, our car wi-fi did not work either most of the time here) Great radio playing American 80's, 90's. It did rain every day - sometimes 20 minutes - sometimes longer, but it was a soft warm rain, it comes straight down, no wind & no one really seems to care. We used the exceptional pool at least twice per day - i's bigger than you expect. Photos do not show the vibrant colors of the plants that surround the house - awesome. You can see the ocean from your dining table. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was welcome but daytime not necessary. Not for children or pets, there is a circular staircase you must use to access the living area to the guest bedrooms and pool area. Bathrooms very nice. Come here to spend time alone or with friends and you will not regret it. FYI - we had an exceptional whale watching tour - 8 to 10 sightings! WOW on this home.
The house was marvellous. The location is amazing. Beaches are nearby and restaurant delicious. But, you need a 4X4 for the road that leads to the house. (about 15 minutes on a rough dirt road). On the other hand, you're in the middle of the jungle after the ride. It's worth 100 times the ride. I would return without hesitation. Thank you to Sonya and John for the great service.
Excelente lugar para descansar
Lo único que le faltó a la casa es tener aire acondicionado en la sala principal y tener televisión por cable. También el que la salida de la casa debería ser a las dos, fuera de esas cosas todo estaba excelente, una vista increíble y una piscina asombrosa, el trato por parte de Sonia y John fue excelente, es una excelente opción para descansar, estamos muy agradecidos por la compresión que tuvieron por un inconveniente presentado y su gran disposición de ayuda y colaboración. Sólo queda decir que fueron unas vacaciones excelentes!!!
What a View!
Our family stayed at this wonderful house in Ojochal that had great views of both the rainforest and the Pacific! The house had everything we needed and the beds were all very comfortable! The pool and grounds around the house were exceptional !!
