Description

Casa Helena is a wonderful home for couples or small groups to enjoy time in Costa Rica's amazing southern pacific zone. Guests will be close to all of the amazing nature that Costa Rica has to offer (howler monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, flowers, fruit trees, etc) and be close to some of the fun and entertainment that Ojochal offers - amazing restaurants, friendly bars and live music.

The newly paved road in Ojochal provides a smooth arrival to Casa Helena. No need to rent a 4x4

This is a great home with views of the Talamanca mountains, which rise above Ojochal.

This newly expanded home has two bedrooms - one on the main floor and one upstairs. Each bedroom has air conditioning and plenty of space. The upstairs bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and walkout to the second-floor patio or yoga zone.

The open floorplan making it easy to move from one room to the other. The ground floor houses a lovely cook’s kitchen with handy features. The bedroom is large and has air conditioning (and a ceiling fan).

The private outdoor courtyard and private pool is where most guests spend the majority of their time, when they aren't out exploring the nearby beaches (Playa Tortuga and Playa Ventanas), volunteering at Reserva Playa Tortuga (want to help protect the turtles? They are always looking for day-volunteers), ziplining through the jungle, watching whales or bird-watching or enjoy the nearby restaurants.

There is a large, open-air loft upstairs that captures the full view of the magnificent Mountain View. It is a great place to practice (or to learn) yoga, enjoy your morning coffee or simply relax in. We can help line up a private yoga instructor or private masseuse if you want the ultimate privacy and pampering. This is accessible from either the upstairs Owner's Suite or from the outside spiral staircase.

The home ~30MB internet speed which is more than enough for Zoom meetings, streaming movies on your personal device or on the 39" SmartTV in the living room.

Casa Helena was the perfect stay!
Casa Helena was the perfect stay! It's comfortable, beautifully decorated, and tucked into a lush, peaceful garden with a refreshing pool. I recommend lying in the terrace hammock to watch the clouds drift across the mountains— nothing better.

Beautiful garden and pool
Beautiful garden and pool. Roomy house. Bathroom and bedroom is spacious.

We really enjoyed it!
“We stayed at Casa Helena for two weeks and really enjoyed it. The pool is great for cooling off in the afternoon, the rooftop deck is a great place to drink your coffee and watch the sunrise. There are birds, hummingbirds, and Iguanas all around the well-landscaped property. The kitchen is spacious and well-stocked. The neighborhood is pretty relaxed with a nice mountain view and close to a handful of restaurants. The beach is about a 10-minute drive away, so would recommend having your own vehicle to stay here.”
