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.

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!
