“Casa Toucan + James = Costa Rican PERFECTION!!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

Casa Toucan is the perfect destination in South Pacific Costa Rica! The house has every thing you need-comfy king bed(s), modern showers, a well equipped kitchen, TV and stereo system, beautiful pool, gorgeous lush landscaping (that makes everything super peaceful and private!), fruit trees, wildlife viewing, private road, proximity to grocery and restaurants, AMAZING views, and the best host you can ever imagine!

We enjoyed whale watching, zip-lining, the wildlife sanctuary, the beach, waterfalls, the Market in San Isidro, the truly scrumptious local dining (try out the Bamboo Room for fun and Citrus for the food plus lots of great area sodas!), site seeing (don't miss Dominical!), swimming in our own pool whenever we felt the urge!, and simply gazing down the mountain at the huge bounty of wildlife and jungle to ocean views (sometimes it was hard to go do anything because we thought we might miss the next Toucan sighting!)!

But truly, what made our trip the most special was making a new friend for life. James, our host, knew everyone and everywhere that was anyone or anywhere! He was welcoming and hospitable, funny and told great stories (as only the Irish can!), and we couldn't wait to see him next to tell him what we'd been doing or to catch-up on the latest local gossip or just sit around and jam to some great Irish tunes. He made our most memorable trip a highlight of our lives (so far!)...and WE WILL BE BACK!!! We miss you, James!!!

“Amazing time at Casa toucan”
Reviewed July 26, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa toucan , a great place for a family or two couples. We couldn't believe how beautiful the house, the site and the pool were . The host was really friendly and helpful. The view from the house and the patio are stunning, jungle, mountains and ocean view . What more could you ask for ? The house is situated high up in the mountains, so you get best of both world , tranquility , wildlife and easy access to town in 20 Minutes. There is many great restaurants right in Ojochal. You also get access to different beaches and sites close by. Make sure you visit Nauyaca waterfalls , the highlight of our trip so far. I would definitely recommend Casa Toucan to anyone looking for peace, scenery and wildlife viewing . Thanks for beeing a part of our Costa Rica trip !

“Staying in the garden of Eden”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

If you want to experience real Costa Rica stay in casa Toucan . Wake up to the sounds of the jungle, watch the abundant wildlife , pick fresh bananas and mangoes for breakfast. Enjoy the views , the sunsets and float in the pool in the evenings looking up at the stars. Property is spacious, comfortable and well equipped . It is uniquely situated at the end of a mountain track in unspoilt Ojochal. The nearby beaches are all beautiful as is the surrounding countryside and we made many trips to the national parks which are within easy access. There is a supermarket and a good selection of restaurants within 10 minutes drive of the property, plus a tourist information office which has a small library. Local restaurants called Sodas are a cheaper alternative and can be found all along the main highway. We regretted not hiring a 4by4 as roads are steep and tend to be dirt tracks .
An integral part of the properties charm is James Mcgeough who is a superb host with a wealth of local knowledge. Unobtrusive, but there when you need him . We enjoyed every moment of our Costa Rican adventure, it surpassed our expectations in every way. Thank you, James.

“Great pool, great views, and a great get-away!”
Reviewed April 15, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This two bedroom, two bath bungalow is nestled at the foot of the mountains in Ojochal. Easy access to the property, and the house was spacious and clean. The kitchen had all the necessary appliances and small kitchenware to make cooking-in a breeze, yet the location was only minutes from a roadside pizza joint and high-end restaurants. The ocean view is expansive, and the sun sets at the right side of the viewscape, allowing for that perfect sunset photo every night. The pool was private, clean, and the perfect temp for evening swims or before sunrise. Toucans, parakeets and a hawk were regulars in the trees around the property, and Scooby, the owner's dog, often came to hang out (sleep) on the shaded patio. He is partial to the real salmon treats available at the pet supply store in Uvita, so be sure to pick some up when you get groceries.

The owner and caretaker, James, is the most friendly host there is. He has lived in the area for several years and knows almost everyone in Ojochal. James will provide directions, advice and any assistance you may need. He lives in a casita above the rental property, so you can just call out and he'll be right there.

I really enjoyed my three weeks at Casa Toucan and can recommend it wholeheartedly!

“Ocean Views with beautiful sunsets, wildlife and all the comforts of home!”
Reviewed March 8, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was truly a home away from home rental. The beds were comfortable and the linens were fresh. There was plenty of closet space and storage. The bathrooms were spacious. The kitchen supplies were more than ample for cooking or baking anything. The home is surrounded with fruit bearing trees, such as lime, star fruit, bananas, mangos, coconuts and water apple. All of which you are invited to pick and enjoy. The pool was a refreshing alternative to the beaches. Another great feature is that the road ends at this property so it is very private and quiet. If you are into photography, there are countless species of birds such as Flycatchers, Toucans, Trogans, Tanagers, hawks, seed eaters, woodpeckers, parrots, chachalacas and so many more. There were also a variety of mammals like the howler monkey and the capuchin monkey and the coati. Ojochal has several restaurants and a small grocery that are just a 5 minute drive from the house. Uvita is just a 15 minute drive with options of Grocery, banks, bakery, pharmacy, and car rentals. Also a farmers market every Saturday morning.

I have to credit James the home owner for being so prompt in email replies and offering his assistance whenever we needed anything. He was so much fun to talk to and always had a funny story to tell. Actually he was at times hillarious! We were always laughing. We had a medical emergency towards the end of our stay and James came to the rescue to not only drive us to the hospital but stayed to interpret with the hospital staff and the doctor and returned the next morning to help with the checkout. He even had my wife laughing as a diversion from the medical emerency. We felt like we were all family when we left. He even has a Great dog named Scooby that helps look out for the property. We highly recommend renting this property as you will leave with more than memories - you will have made a great friend!

“Toucans and Monkeys in the Trees”

person found this review helpful

We are 2 very happy Seattle travelers who spent 5 months exploring Costa Rica’s Southern Zone jungle areas, and were fortunate to have found Casa Toucan as our home retreat. A nicely appointed and extremely comfortable home with pool and large covered terrace perched on the edge of the high hill overlooking the village of Ojochal, the ocean and amazing sunsets. Convenient to the main highway, beaches, services and shopping. Our host James was very friendly and extremely helpful to us during our time there. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
