The views and location make this home unique! This property is perched on the front row ocean view ridge overlooking the Terraba Rivermouth and Tortuga Beach in Ojochal. Also, from the vantage point of the viewing decks, you can look south and see Drake’s Bay and the southern coastline. During our summer months, the sun sets over Tortuga Beach, giving you another reason to stay home to enjoy the sunsets from the pool or the open-air living room. Due to its front ridge location, this home receives unobstructed ocean breezes, keeping you cool all day long!
The easy 2×4 access is on a well-maintained public road only 3 minutes off the coastal highway. Having easy access is convenient for you and any rental guests. The Citrus Plaza, supermarket, and most of Ojochal’s best restaurants are right at your fingertips, giving you many great options to choose from to create your dining experience.
Public road frontage also allows for commercial business opportunities. Years ago, this property was a popular boutique restaurant. The kitchen is equipped for the restaurant, including a commercial-sized refrigerator, an oversized gas stove and oven, a food prep area, multiple sinks, and plenty of storage. The kitchen leads out to the large, open-air covered living room and bar. If you like to cook or be cooked for, you will enjoy what this kitchen has to offer.
The kitchen gives access to the two bedrooms. The bedroom adjacent to the kitchen faces the jungle and has its own bathroom. Also from the kitchen is a staircase leading to the master bedroom. This large room has vaulted wooden beam ceilings, giving it lots of character and creating space for air movement to ensure a comfortable temperature day or night. The king-sized bed faces the ocean, with ocean views from the bed. The private bathroom has a large vanity area and window views looking at the jungle behind the house. From the master bedroom, there is a door leading directly to the pool deck.
Tropical Setting in Ojochal That Is Ideal For Outdoor Entertaining
This property was built to entertain! The pool deck is large, allowing ample space for sun chairs, hammocks, and a dining table. Removable shade tarps allow for taking in the sun or taking cover in the shade. The open-air, covered living room with a bar is also a great space for entertaining. With plenty of space for several dining tables, a bar, and bar seating, this space can be used for many events. This area receives great breezes as well as unobstructed whitewater ocean views. For the guests’ ease, there are three bathrooms, two of which are near the pool, and the third, which is wheelchair-accessible, is in a separate building near the parking area. This room is currently being used as an office, but it could easily be turned into another cabina as it has both water and electricity.
Also, there are two “lookout” platforms positioned to give you ocean views of Drakes Bay as well as overlooking the ocean and the remainder of the sloping property.
The mature landscaping around this property adds to it’s appeal. Mature Guanacaste trees offer shade and perches for the toucans, Scarlett Macaws, and local birds. The sloping area in front of the “overlook” decks currently has bananas growing, and there is plenty of room to further plant a garden and fruit trees. Many flowering shrubs surround the house, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds and creating a garden paradise. Behind the house and across the street is an untouched jungle that brings daily visits from local monkey troops.
The nearby beaches of Playa Ventanas, Playa Torgua, and Playa Pinuelas give you several options for beach activities depending on your preferences. All of these beaches are beautiful but very different from one another.
Ojochal is known as the “Culinary Capital of Costa Rica,” and it has many places that are said to be among the best in the country. From fancy Frech dining to Bavarian kitchens, a Belgian tap house, and local Costa Rican cuisine, there is no shortage of variety when it comes to dining out.
Due to its location, this property can also work as a successful vacation rental, a restaurant, or a family residence. There is a ton of potential for this unique property!
