We spent most of the first two weeks reading by the lovely pool. The gardens of this property are beautiful. They have many native flowering plants, and native fruits growing. The edges of the property are surrounded by lush green growth giving a sense of privacy. We could hear neighbors and local traffic, but we couldn’t see them. This gave a sense of comfort for hanging out around the pool clothing optional. :).

We liked the pool being close to the house. We liked that there were room ac units for cooling off in the worst heat of the day. We absolutely loved the amount of birds that we saw at this property due to the trees and gardens. Parrots stopped by and chatted for 30 minutes each morning and evenings. Toucans, parakeets, chachalacas and oropendolas were abundant. We saw numerous songbirds and exotic tanagers. It was healing and wonderful. We didn’t turn on the TV the entire month.

Ojochal apparently has some petty thieving going on. This house is secured against such antics. Decorative bars are on all windows and doors. The windows all have wood pieces fitted to prevent sliding windows open. And there is an alarm system that you can activate when you leave to go somewhere. And lastly there is a remote controlled gate into the road.

The property is located on top of a hill (2 min. drive up from the Costanera Highway.) The villa is at 250 feet above the sea level. It is surrounded by 1.7 acres of tropical forest with breathtaking oceanfront and mountain views. All the local attractions are within easy access. Though roads are very accessible, a 4X4 vehicle is recommended but not necessary as it is a short drive up the gravel road to the property, and most roads in the area if are not paved are well maintained gravel roads.
