Location: Ojochal, Costa Rica
Find yourself feeling at home on a lovely, elevated, and fully landscaped piece of paradise in the jungle, yet near the center of Ojochal. Situated nearby the home is a year-round creek that babbles between old-growth trees, welcoming dozens of species of tropical birds, butterflies, and mammals to its abundant buffet. Not only does the green space that borders this property attract the amazing wildlife that Costa Rica is known for, but it also creates a tranquil sanctuary on this property. You feel a bit removed from the hubbub of humanity, yet it is only a 2-minute drive to restaurants and shopping, and 10 minutes to beaches.
The mature property is home to this well-built, solid construction. Downstairs is the main home with a familiar North American floorplan, two bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms, and an open-concept living area. The nicely finished kitchen features plenty of cabinetry and a table for quick, convenient meals. A highly desirable indoor living room flows out to a spacious covered patio.
Upstairs is a one-bedroom apartment with a separate entrance, featuring a shaded terrace, full kitchen, bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, and plenty of space to live comfortably. The apartment is ideal to be used to host family and friends or to rent out to a single or couple who are looking for a medium to long-term stay in a welcoming space.
A few steps away, you will find a large contemporary tiled pool that is big enough to fit the whole family for a fun day of splashing around or swimming laps. Play games of pool volleyball while the rest of the group relaxes under the shady, poolside shelter – an ideal spot to hop on a lounger and read a book surrounded by swaying coconut palms. There is also an outdoor shower for when you head into or out of the pool,
Not far past the pool area is a dream entertainment spot where you can BBQ and prepare full meals in an outdoor kitchenette plus a covered dining area. You know that everyone will want to be out by the pool, and it’s handy to have outdoor facilities that allow you to spend the day outside comfortably without tracking pool water into the home.
The architecture includes a Spanish tiled roof, beautiful hardwood accents, and a brightly colored exterior that give the home a cheery, colonial aesthetic.
