Description of the property
This fabulous, three-bedroom, three and a half bath home is nestled on 6.14 acres in the private Cinco Ventanas community in the coastal foothills of Playa Ventanas, just 32 km south from Dominical in Ojochal, Costa Rica. Cinco Ventans is also only 1 km north of Ojochal, and a short 25 minute drive north from the airstrip at Palmar Sur. It has incredible views of the ocean, offshore rocky islets, the Terraba River delta and entire Osa Peninsula, and lush, jungle-covered mountains. The wildlife that is in and around the property is simply amazing. Waking up to the sounds of the jungle as it wakes up is an experience you will not forget. Toucans are daily visitors to the trees surrounding the house. Howler monkey and White face monkey troops are resident in our area, heard always and often (and fyi, very early in the morning...) and seen shaking the limbs in the trees surrounding the house with regularity. This is not a "sleep in" holiday. The sunrise and sunset in this area are just incredible.
This lovely layout is perfect for maximum appreciation of the beautiful natural environment on the South Pacific Zone. The estate is surrounded by banana trees and jungle wildlife, including howler and white-faced monkeys, toucans, parrots, sloth, lizards and butterflies. The grounds include streams and primary old growth forest. Access is gravel from a private gated road. Due to the gravel road as well as issues with all roads in the area 4WD VEHICLES ONLY should be rented for your stay. Although the Cinco Ventanas road as well as the private drive have each been recently resurfaced, 4WD is necessary at times. In addition, most of the "off the highway" roads in the area are not in as good a condition; hence the 4WD is a must.
The property is bordered by the Media Luna river which runs year round with small waterfalls and swimming holes just a short walk down from the swimming pool. In addition to the natural falls and pools on the property, the area is home to literally hundreds of cascading waterfalls. Many are near, and open to the public.
The beautifully crafted, 2,400-square-foot, furnished home features glass, wood, and stone with vaulted ceilings. The home, built in 2000, has 3 ½ bathrooms. The estate includes a 20' by 30' swimming pool. The house has been completely renovated inside and out since 2007.
