Perched on the “Gold Coast” of Central America with a commanding view of one of Costa Rica’s famed surfing locales, Casa Ohana stands as an architectural masterpiece immersed in a breathtaking setting.
Derived from the Polynesian term for “extended family,” Casa Ohana, a residence capable of accommodating twelve, is more than just a dwelling; it embodies a warm and inviting space where both young and old can gather. The design seamlessly integrates with the oceanic surroundings and incorporates local materials, creating a harmonious fusion of modern aesthetics and traditional craftsmanship.
Crafted by Tony Unruh of Unruh Boyer Architecture and Design in Los Angeles, Casa Ohana is a tribute to thoughtful design and local construction skills. Bathed in natural light and the soothing sounds of waves, the residence features curved staircases, lofty ceilings, hardwood finishes, and expansive decks.
Nestled within a secure gated community, this five-bedroom home, complete with three full baths and two half baths, is ensconced within lush, mature landscaping. Positioned atop a point, it offers panoramic views along the coastline, with four bedrooms overlooking the Pacific Ocean and fifth bedroom providing a tranquil vista of a tropical tree canopy leading to the mountains. Each suite is designed for privacy, while communal spaces like the open-air living room, kitchen area, three covered decks, and the bamboo-shaded poolside lanai serve as gathering points.
Amenities abound, offering an array of activities such as swimming in the 40-foot lap pool, basking in the equatorial sun on the poolside deck, relishing romantic sunsets, or engaging in outdoor games like ping-pong and bocce ball. A mere 25 steps away, the beach beckons, connecting to the renowned Playa Negra surf break and family-friendly Sandy Beach.
Within minutes, residents can explore a multitude of world-class restaurants, and the property is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Hacienda Pinilla, boasting 40 acres of recreational activities such as golf, tennis, pickleball, and mountain biking. Furthermore, the international airport in Liberia is only a 70-minute drive away.
Casa Ohana epitomizes a coastal dream in northwestern Costa Rica, offering a residence with enchanting amenities that beckon you to realize your aspirations in this idyllic setting.
