Our stay at this place was at the least (a mini Jurassic park adventure)
Jim's place was perfect, the way the house is designed, the large
outdoor terrace was wonderful we could see tucans eating from
the papaya plant, all kinds of birds,butterflies and surrounded by
tropical plants and flowers all over. It felt like we were in the middle of the jungle up in the mountain, it is like paradise.
Ken was very helpful giving us info. and places to visit, his wife Sharon sells homemade goodies on Friday morning in the village
and a guy sells fresh fish.
Just loved Ojochal!!!!!
Thank you Jim for sharing your house, it made our trip unforgettable.

Jim's place is incredible, the vegetation is matured and pool is always clean. The property manager Ken gave us many ideas of things to do in the region and is a very nice man. Great restaurants in the area, do the zipline tour that is about 15 minutes south of ojochal as it is incredible. This place is definitely worth renting!!!
The agent gave us a warm welcome and was very helpful! The house itself is very comfortable and the view is amazing. Sitting on that balcony is like watching a magic performance of numerous birds, butterflies and other animals. We had a wonderful time and will certainly come again!
The house is great; it is situated up in the mountains where it is quiet with lots of animals and birds around, it has two bedrooms with their own bathroom, the kitchen is equiped so you can cook your own meals and the living room is outside which makes you enjoy and appreciate Costa Rica and surroundings as much as possible. There is a safe in the house which we found very useful. The pool is a great asset and was very much appreciated. It is to be noted that as nice beaches and bigger mercados (grocery store) are about a 30 minute drive, a car is a must have in that area.
It is to be mentioned that there are lots of ants everywhere. You really need to keep floors, counter tops, dishes very clean all the time to avoid having too many ants around. It is part of being in Costa Rica where humidity is, during rainy season anyway, very high.
We haven't met Jim however, communications with him before were excellent. Communications with Ken, property manager who we dealt with as Jim was away, were excellent as well. Ken is very helpful, dedicated and knowledgeable about the area. By the way, Ken's wife (Sharon) makes awesome salsa, papaya&mango jam, hot red pepper jelly and more.
In addition, Randal the fish guy, is selling fresh fish every Friday morning at the local bar. The fish and shrimps bought from him were very good! We also tried Osa Canopy Tour for a Zip Lining activity and we found it excellent! It is located about 40-45 drive from the house.
Overall, we found the place to be excellent and recommend it.
