Location: Ojochal, Costa Rica
If your looking to escape from it all but still be close enough to all the amenities then this is the right property for you. The amazing ocean, mountain, and jungle views from the house will take your breath away. Watching the clouds roll over the mountains along with the tranquil sounds of nature is a moment that you will appreciate every day. This lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home sits at an elevation of 2000 feet so you will enjoy pleasant temperatures year-round without the need for air conditioning.
The open-air concept eliminates the need for excessive dehumidifier use that closed houses need in Costa Rica in order to eliminate mold. This concept makes the house feel even bigger than it already is and it really brings you closer to an abundance of nature. If you prefer a closed-in traditional house this home can easily be closed in for as little as $7500. Currently, the main area of the house is open air and the bedrooms are closed in.
The home is truly one of a kind with many unique features. The teak and bamboo ceiling draws a lot of attention. The home is very well constructed of concrete and built to very high standards with lots of storage and closet space including a pantry closet for the kitchen.
The current owners have a passion for gardening and it really shows. There are several fruit-bearing trees such as banana, lime, orange, pineapples, and a large variety of flowering plants. Lots of time, effort, and love were put into this garden for you to come along and enjoy.
Arguably one of the best features of this property (besides the views) is the fact that it sits just outside of a friendly ex-pat community. If you ever need a favor there is always someone happy to help. The residents regularly get together for movie nights on the big screen. On holidays and special occasions, dinner is served in the community center. The community has a saltwater pool, ping pong table, pool table, kitchen, laundry room, and workout room. The best part is that there are community gardens that you can pick from or have the workers pick a fruit and vegetable basket for you twice a week.
You do need a 4x4 to access the house but the roads are well maintained every year. The house is a 15-20 minute drive away from the Costanera Highway with the new Hospital in Ciudad Cortes close to the entrance. Ojochal is a short 30-minute drive away where you will find some of the best restaurants in Costa Rica and great beaches.
Appliances are included in the sale as well as most of the furniture which includes 2 couches, 6 teak bar stools for the breakfast bar, outdoor furniture on the paving stone back porch, 3 beds, 1 king, and 1 double with mattresses, and a trundle bed in the third bedroom. A triple filter water system is also included.
Note that the water is potable and comes from a well. There is also good internet service available.
Amenities to highlight in the area include:
- A close-by river with several waterfalls (lots of hiking trails)
- Restaurant within walking distance
- Zip Line tour up the mountain
- Other popular tours close by such as the Sierpe river tour
- An abundance of wildlife ( a birders paradise)
- New Ciudad Cortes hospital within 15 minutes
- Close connections to the local tico neighbors ( workers happy to help)
Don’t miss this opportunity! This home is priced right and there are very few options available in this price range.
