Nice Lot in Gated Community
This lovely lot is located in a gated development, in the mountains above the village of Ojochal. Being near the top of the development, this property features an ocean window. With an active homeowner’s association and gated access, security will never be an issue here. There are already several homes built, so you would have neighbors and a built-in support system. Being in the mountains at a higher elevation, the temperature here is much cooler than in coastal areas.
Utilities are already in place, so there would be no wait to build your dream retirement or vacation home. If not planning on full-time residency, this area would offer great potential for rental income. The Ojochal area experiences high-demand for rentals during the dry or high season of December through March and many residents can cover partial operating costs through rental of their properties during this timeframe.
The village of Ojochal is a mixture of native Costa Ricans, called “Ticos”, and many ex-pats from North America and Europe. There is active community involvement in all facets of village life and, though small in size, Ojochal boasts some of the best restaurants on the Southern Pacific coast. You won’t find any large resorts here, with only small B&Bs offering lodging for tourists and guests. The full-service town of Uvita is only 15 minutes north on the coastal highway and there is a regional airport with daily connections to San Jose located about 30 minutes to the south in Palmar Sur.
This is the area of Costa Rica that still offers a jungle environment where wildlife abounds, coupled with some of the most beautiful and uncrowded beaches you will find anywhere. With a wide array of outdoor activities and adventures close by, one can easily see why this part of the country has such wide appeal for tourists and those seeking a quiet retreat to call home.
