This charming 2-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom bungalow is close to all the conveniences that Ojochal has to offer, but its seclusion and privacy feels like you are in a cozy jungle haven far off the beaten path! From the entrance to the property, you cross a pretty foot bridge over a seasonal creek, following the path to the pool area and the house. The large 12' x 18' pool is perfect for cooling off on a hot day, or just relax and enjoy a drink poolside while taking in the beauty of the surrounding jungle. Nature is never far away on this property, with tons of flowers, plants, and fruit trees, and the dense vegetation guarantees lots of privacy!
The entryway to the modest 882-square-foot house opens up into a large, sunny kitchen with vaulted ceilings. The cheerful open concept space includes a large center island with a breakfast bar and extra storage. Up the stairway, you open up onto a lovely second-story patio with beautiful views of the property and the surrounding jungle. Sip on a cup of morning coffee and listen to howler monkeys and toucans from your patio! The main bedroom is cozy and comfortable with gentle breezes. Enjoy sleeping in the comfortable bed while still breathing the cool night air and listening to the relaxing sounds of the jungle at night. The second bedroom on the first floor has a lovely garden view and would also be great as an office or work space. There is a full bathroom on the main floor and a half bathroom upstairs.
The property is conveniently located near the heart of the village of Ojochal, just off the newly paved road through town - easy access with no four-wheel drive required! Ojochal is one of the hidden gems of Costa Rica. Called the "culinary capital of Costa Rica," the area is full of restaurants and activities, with a thriving expat community waiting to greet newcomers with open arms and helpful advice! Ojochal is just a few minutes south of the town of Uvita, which is famous for its Marino Ballena National Park where humpback whales come to raise their babies in the warm waters just offshore, and the town of Dominical, a well-known surfing destination with a laid-back vibe. The ocean meets the jungle here, providing a stunning backdrop of lush and verdant jungle that rises gracefully as you move inland from the beautiful Pacific beaches. You'll discover abundant wildlife every day, including monkeys, toucans, and sloths. Ojochal is also home to the famous Playa Tortuga, a beautiful Pacific beach that is a seasonal nesting ground for sea turtles. Drink fresh coconut water straight from the coconut as you take a quiet stroll down the beach under the palm trees. Don't forget to look for the scarlet macaws and white face capuchin monkeys in the trees!
