We stayed at Finca Ogawa for 2 nights and had an amazing stay. Barbra, our host, was the sweetest and took great care of us. We had not booked a car since we were on another trip close by previously and our guide had left us directly at Finca Ogawa. Barbra and John did everything they could to get us a rental car but when that proved impossible (it was peak season), they arranged for the pool maintenance staff to be our private driver. It was great too, because it's not easy to find the smaller wineries. No google maps!
The Casa Martha of Finca Ogawa was clean, spacious and had A/C. We could take anything from the garden, we had access to fresh eggs from the coop, raspberries from their fields. The highlight is that Barbra sent us to shop at ''Hector's'', the local grocery store 2 doors down. Hector is the friendliest guy you'll ever meet. The shop is an extension of his house and his whole family tends to it. It's a small local shop, so don't expect anything fancy, but his meat and local produce were amazing and at ridiculous prices. He even invited us for lunch the second day (turns out that the driver/pool guy was his nephew). It's small experiences like this that can really make a trip memorable.
That said, even if you don't get to meet Hector, Finca Ogawa is close to the main wineries, it has a pool, Casa Martha is clean and well appointed, there's pool towels and cooking neccessities. And of course, there is a BBQ!
