About This Listing
In the charming town of Ojochal, international oasis on Costa Ballena. Only 2 minutes from the Costanera Highway. Live in the jungle with monkeys, 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 preserves 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 brand new construction: hot water, pool, washer, Internet, bedding, all necessary kitchen equipment, etc. on a 5 acres lot with cascade.
We live in Canada, but a caretaker is there to welcome you and help you with anything. He speaks French, English and Spanish.
The house is beautiful, just like the pictures. Easy to find and Leo the caretaker was really helpful. Lovely location with a lot to do in the area. Would recommend.
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.
What a great experience! We loved the house. A beautiful place to stay, in a lovely little town. We had monkeys and toucans right out the back door. Leo, the property manager was very helpful in arranging tours in the area. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone!
About the Host, Francine
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!
