About this listing

Ojochal is located near to several beautiful beaches and surrounded by magnificent mountains, and "Estilo de Vida" is nestled into the sides of the mountains, overlooking the Village, the river mouth, and the Pacific Ocean. Set at an altitude of 700 feet above sea level the house escapes the problems with mosquitoes that will be experienced at lower altitudes.
Estilo de Vida' is located in a development that features very large lots, minimum of 6 acres up to 60 acres. (View (website hidden) satellite image) . The development has not had many houses constructed and as a result the house makes an excellent location for viewing the abundant local wildlife.
The entire process of renting this house was both hassle-free and wonderful. The house manager Massimiliano provided very detailed instructions that made things very clear and easy to use at and around the house. The house itself not only gorgeous, serene and well kept, but it has all of the appliances and luxuries you would have at home as well. If possible, the surrounding area was more beautiful than the house itself. Lush green jungle filled with plants, animals and a great view! To sum it up, this rental epitomizes relaxation and luxurious comfort.
My wife, 10 month old son and I had a fabulous stay at Estilo Vida. Massi was an excellent host, and was always responsive to our questions and planning efforts leading up to our trip. He even had several vases full of fresh local plants & flowers waiting for us when we arrived.
The property itself is a little dated, however the spectacular view, expansive grounds, pool, jungle seclusion, wifi, & AC in the bedrooms more than made up for it. Estilo Vida is a few KM up the mountain off the main paved road which could be a little intimidating if you're not prepared for it. That, however, is one of the most compelling attributes of the Uvita/Ojochal area: it's a little off the grid and perhaps reminiscent of what other areas of Costa Rica used to be like before they were developed. Estilo Vida was an ideal home base for exploring the area, and we hope to come back some day!
