Costa Rica, Puntarenas, Ojochal
Situated in the Costa Rica rainforest 750 ft above sea level in a gated community, this 2 bedroom house has one of the most magnificent views of any property in the area. The panorama is one of virgin rain forest, and beyond is 180 degrees of sparkling Pacific ocean. Behind the house and privacy bamboo hedge rises the mountainous rainforest. Yet it is only a 5 minute drive to the paved road and supermarket , nine minutes to the Costanera highway, 11 minutes to Playa Tortuga beach.
Built in 2010, the house was designed to take advantage of both the stunning views and the constant breezes that come down from the mountains at night and up from the ocean during the day. The mature gardens are beautifully landscaped with fruit trees ranging from bananas to pineapples. The kitchen garden grows everything from peppers to tomatoes.
The house was built as a guest house/caretaker’s house for the Tucan Tango estate below it and it has two bedrooms , one of which is large enough for a Queen size bed and a single bed, the other for a Queen size bed. Both have stunning ocean and rainforest views. The kitchen has a sit up bar that’s fits 3. The fitted kitchen cabinetry counters are tiled. There is an 4 burner electric stove oven, a single door fridge/freezer plus a built in wine rack along with a double sink. The 3 piece bathroom has a glass walled shower. At the front of the house is a patio for al fresco eating. Every room has a fan. Underneath the house is a large open concreted area with plumbing that could be walled-in if desired . Currently the area underneath has a large double ceramic sink, washing machine, large emergency water tank and hammock hanging area there. The tiled floor of the house rests on a lattice of steel beams. The house has potable piped water from the mountains above and it’s own electric meter. The house has direct line of site to both cellular/internet towers that supply Ojochal .
Visitors call Casa Arari a paradise on earth; for its tranquility, vista and abundant wildlife. Toucans, parrots and Orupendulas fly only feet away from the patio and scarlet macaws land on the almond trees planted 30 feet below the house, so you are looking down on them as they feed on the almonds. Finally, howler monkeys serenade you every morning from the jungle below your bedroom windows!
Soil testing has been completed in the garden and it is good for a swimming pool to be built to the side of the house.
