Description

The space

In the charming town of Ojochal, international oasis on Costa Ballena. Only 2 minutes from the Costanera Highway. Live in the jungle with monkeys, sloths, toucans and parrots, but with all the refinement of civilisation close by: several restaurants (simple to white cloth), cafés, French bakery, grocery stores with imports!

Jungle tours, surfing, zip lining, golf, white water rafting, horseback riding, Caῆo Island snorkeling and diving, beachcombing, and visits to natural reserves are all within a few minutes drive.

Several of Costa Rica’s best beaches are minutes away: for all tastes (some very calm and safe for kids, others with great waves for surfing).

Easy to get by in English and French, as well as Spanish.

Gorgeous, all equipped recent construction: hot water, pool, washer, Internet, bedding, all necessary kitchen equipment, etc. on a 13 acre lot with a cascade.

Guest access

You will have exclusive access to the entire property, including the pool.

Interaction with guests

When you will rent, we will be in Canada, but our caretaker Leo will be available during your stay to solve problems and give you advice about the area. He speaks French, English and Spanish.

I am always reachable by email.

The neighborhood

Calle Perezoso is a calm residential dirt street close to Main Street and the Costanera. The distance between properties is enough to insure great privacy. Our house overlooks the valley.
Unfortunately, there is a construction site higher on the street that causes a lot of circulation theses days.

Getting around

It is strongly recommanded to have a car to rent our house and discover our area. Everything is withing a short driving distance, but not easily accessible by foot.

Other things to note

The property is not safe for young children without adequate supervison.
The surrounding jungle can be quite noisy at night and early in the morning; if you are a light sleeper I recommend that you bring ear plugs!

This house has a beautiful view! Our favorite part was the pool and outdoor shower, perfect for washing away the sticky ocean and sand. The only thing I would say caught me off guard is the noise. The animals of the jungle definitely let you know, you are in their jungle, but on top of that, the road the house is on is very frequently traveled by big work trucks and dirt bikes; working on the houses up the road. Ear plugs would be a simple solution to this (I just forgot ours). Despite the noise, this house and it's very central location made it for a great place to visit the cities and beaches to the north and south. Great bang for your buck!

The jungle noise is to be expected, and part of the charm of rural Costa Rica. The noise due to the construction is very unfortunate but out of our control and temporary. We are very sorry about that and hope you enjoyed your stay nonetheless.

Francine's house met our needs and expectations. Unlike many places the internet worked well. The road is quiet and you don't need a 4 wheel drive to reach the house. The kitchen furnishings exceeded our expectations. There was a full size refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, toaster and coffee pot. The salad spinner was a pleasant surprise as we we're invited to a potluck and asked to bring a salad. It is a place we will definitely consider renting when we return to the area.

I stayed with my family at Francine house Dec 22nd,2015-Jan 4th,2016 .Beforehand Francine ensured I got all the information regarding the house location (positioned on the picturesque Calle Perezosa with an easy car access). Francine house is designed to host comfortable 6 people ; is very functional and designed to accept breeze ( makes it very convenient on the hot days and nights); also there is a pool which we used all the time. The house provides the privacy from the main road thanks to the beautifully kept tropical landscape. Another great feature is a superb location- its located in a walking (or very short car drive) distance from many excellent restaurants- Citrus; Mamas and Papas; Azul at El Castillo; Bamboo room at Alma (just to mention few). Francine is the most wonderful host ;very easy to communicate and very providing. The house and its surroundings proved to be more than accurate of its description. We loved and appreciated the opportunity to stay there. We had nothing to worry about just to enjoy Pura Vida.There is a house keeper available all the time in case of any difficulties- Leo; but we hardly ever needed to call him up. I highly recommend to everyone to stay at the Francine house. You gonna have care free and very relaxing holiday spent in this beautiful house. Million thanks Francine! I will be back for sure! Cheers!!!

This listing was much more than I ever expected. The house is absolutely beautiful and seemed to have every kitchen amenity that you could ever need. During my time in Costa Rica I saw many incredible views, however few could match the spectacular view from the front porch, pictures simply do not do it justice. Leo was very helpful and was always there to assist us. The house is relatively easy to find and is far enough to be away from all the tourist traps. There are many great things to do in Ojochal and our trip was perfect. Thank you Francine!

Our family had a wonderful stay at Francine's house in Ojochal. The house is very comfortable, well equipped and private. We thoroughly enjoyed the setting, the views from the patio, and the pool. Ojochal is a great place to stay if you want to get away from a lot of tourists but still enjoy good food, beaches and other C.R. activities. We plan on returning and highly recommend it.

We are a French Canadian couple who are planning our retirement in Ojochal, Costa Rica.

We built this house to have a nice place of our own for vacations and, eventually, to live several months a year of full time.

In the meantime, we like to rent it to people who will discover our little paradise!

We have 3 grown up kids, so our house has 3 bedrooms. However, when we are in Costa Rica, we like to enjoy the outdoors and we think bedrooms are only for sleeping. Therefore, the rooms are rather small, but comfortable.

This is an ideal house for people who want to enjoy the wonderful flora and fauna of Costa Rica, and have a nice and cosy place to eat and sleep comfortably.

I am convinced you will enjoy our place as much as we do!
