We are located about 10 min. from the village of Ojochal and 15 min. from beautiful, expansive beaches. There are lots of day trip excursions in the surrounding area; zip-lining, sport fishing, diving, surfing, wildlife reserves, etc. There is also a myriad of volunteer opportunities available within the Southern Zone should you wish to get involved with the community.
Our home does have WiFi but no cable TV (or any type of TV channels), however we have over 2000 DVDs of movies and TV seasons that are on-hand. We are an American couple who built our home to American standards and have all of the modern "luxuries" even though we live off-grid. DO NOTE: the living area is located on the second level of our house. We DO NOT have railings on the balcony so if you are afraid of heights, this is not the home for you.
Transportation is not included; we are 7 km. from the nearest bus stop, so a 4 wheel drive rental vehicle is required.
This time of the year is when the small rains start. Living on the side of a mountain is cooler than along the beach, daytime temps will be around 80-90 degrees.
We do require a COUPLE due to the fact that we are in a secluded area and, for our peace of mind, we ask that two people be present.
Needs and Animals
- My pets
- A dog
- 4 cats
Hobie Juan Kenobi Cat, our dog (true breed is unknown but most likely a bichon or poodle mix ~ he does not shed!) is also a rescue and about 2 years old. He still is pretty active and loves to go for walks and play. He roams free outside so you do not need to monitor him. He is pretty happy-go-lucky but does at times have separation anxiety. He will travel in the car for short trips (1-1 1/2 hours).
Since we do live off-grid, the hybrid hydro/solar system needs daily monitoring but maintenance is quite minimal. Being between summer and the start of the rainy season, it might be necessary to water the plants a couple of times of week. A gardener comes once a week to clean up around the exterior.
We also have a cleaning lady come in on Fridays.
- 50 - 150 m² (530 - 1590 sq. ft.)
- More than 1000 m² (1060 sq. ft.)
Note: we do not have doors or screens on the doorways to the balcony but we have curtains we close at night. It is rare to see a mosquito but we do have occasional insects in the house - mostly flying).
As I previously mentioned, we do not have railings on our balcony so this NOT the environment for children.
