About this listing

The space

Comfortable and private for two guests, Casa Bambu is located in "Bali Rica", a gated 5 acre tropical garden of fruit trees and exotic plants. The scent of ylang ylang trees perfume the air and the view from your porch is of large Guanacaste trees, exotic flowers, and the jungle faced coastal mountain range. The fruit garden provides a bounty of seasonal bananas, starfruit, coconuts, mango, citrus and more.

The accommodations include an extra comfortable queen bed with a pillow top mattress. The full bathroom and kitchen, and spacious screened porch bring all the comforts of home. There is a security safe for valuables. From the screened-in porch, the mountain and garden views are beautiful with many birds and butterflies making their home, including morphos - the electric blue butterfly. Casa Bambu also has a private deck for your sun bathing or evening star gazing enjoyment and a refreshing dipping pool to cool off.

Of special note on the premises is "Palm Spa", which offers convenient spa treatments for your pleasure and relaxation.

The garden is ever changing with seasonal fruits and flowers at hand for your enjoyment. There are paths throughout the 5 acre estate which will lead you through exotic flowers, the zen garden, yoga pavilion, the Labyrinth, through bamboo groves to the Spa House, the meditation stream, or wherever you wander. You may hear the call of the area resident rainbow macaws, along with many other bird species.

For those desiring an occasional tune in to the news or watching a movie, there is an open air pavilion on premises for WIFI, DVD or TV viewing. Weekly yoga classes are held every Wednesday 9am, Zumba on Monday 9am. Complementary class for guests of Bali Rica. Private yoga classes can also be arranged.

Casa Bambu is located 3 minutes from the scenic and paved Costa Rican Pacific coastal highway. No 4wd vehicle is necessary to access this property. This retreat will feel remote, but is convenient to activities the area has to offer. Though we encourage guests to rent a vehicle for more freedom for exploring, the village of Ojochal has much to offer and groceries and restaurants can be accessed by foot or by the supplied mountain bikes. Also local taxi or tour bus can be arranged for front door pick-ups for your tour needs.

The village of Ojochal is ideal for lovers of gourmet cuisine with a number of the area's finest restaurants. There's also a popular French bakery nearby with delicious fresh, warm-from-the-oven breads, and a Licorea for those looking for special ingredients to cook at home.

Just 5 minutes away is one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches, Playa Ventanas, and the popular surfer's beach in Dominical, is approximately 30 minutes north. The newly built San Buenas Golf Course is 10 minutes south, and many other local attractions are close by; horseback riding, zip lines, ATV tours, off shore fishing and boating, etc.. For book lovers there is the village library within walking distance, or you can ride the two mountain bikes provided for your enjoyment as well.

For those considering a more permanent situation in Costa Rica, we will be happy to guide you to trustworthy people who can show you available properties in the area.

A perfect retreat, honeymoon hideaway, or for the solitude of one, Casa Bambu is a place which can be a comfortable home base for exploring the riches of Costa Rica, or a private hideaway to rest and revive. .

Sharon and Mac were wonderful hosts. The property was perfect for me and my partner. It was a short drive from beautiful beaches, great restaurants and amazing produce for cooking. We were so relaxed, we didn't bother leaving the house for a couple of the days during our visit. I would definitely recommend this house and would consider vacating here again.

We had a great time at Casa Bambu! Sharon is such a kind soul and was so welcoming. On arrival, she gave us a beautiful welcome basket of banana bread, tropical fruit, and eggs from the free range chickens on the property. She also toured us through the beautiful property our first day there. I was pretty sunburned on the third day of our trip and when Sharon saw this, she immediately went and picked some aloe from her garden to put on my burns, which I thought was so kind and thoughful. We loved waking up to the birds chirping and stepping outside to pick oranges and starfruit from the trees for breakfast. We also enjoyed a yoga class and meditation class at the pavilion during our stay. Sharon is also happy to share ideas for tours/activities if you have any questions. Overall, we had a wonderfully refreshing time!

I can't imagine a better place to have spent 10 days than at Sharon and Mac's amazing retreat. My husband and I felt right at home with such a beautiful place to stay, surrounded by an expanse of jungle plants and fruit trees. This property is a gem, and the amazing hosts take it above and beyond! Throughout our stay, they gave wonderful and thoughtful advice about where to explore, ranging from the village's incredible restaurants to the beaches nearby, and a river tour and waterfall as well. Ojochal is a truly unique place to stay, and Bali Rica is the perfect way to experience it. Thank you, Sharon and Mac, for your immense kindness and your openness to share this beautiful place you call home with travelers from around the world!

The property was what we expected and more. The little tika was very comfortable and the property was really beautiful. Sharon made us feel totally at home. The village is very small, however, Sharon's directions were perfect and we found the property without any problems. It was a great place to call home for a week. We loved waking up in the early morning to the sounds of the jungle and the chickens roaming the yard. I loved that could use the yoga pavilion and had it all to my self each morning for my yoga routine. Sharon had great suggestions of things to do and see while staying in the area. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend staying with Mac and Sharon while in Ojochal.

Originally Mac is from Texas and Sharon is from N.J.. We met on the island of Andros in the Bahamas, and fell in love "underwater" in the blue seas. That was many years ago and we've since traveled the world.
Having lived for some years in Bali Indonesia, we were enchanted by the feel and beauty of the island, and have tried to bring a taste of that to our vacation homes for travelers to enjoy.

Our goal is to provide our traveler's vacation homes, Casa Rica, Casa Roca and Casa Bambu with a taste of the world and the heart of local love.
