About the Owner

The villa was originally built as a jungle guest house by my uncle. We have enlarged the hiking trail network and gardens and converted the property to a vacation rental. I still have full time work in Florida but enjoy as much time off as I can get in the jungles of Costa Rica.

Gorgeous Property! Awesome Staff! One of a Kind!

  • 5 of 5
*Stayed October 23, 2013 but calendar won't let me go back that far.

From the initial contact with with the owner Stephen, I was in love with this property. He answered every email thoroughly and provided some great suggestions on things to do in the area or how to make our trip more efficient. The cook, or shall I say Chef [her cooking is awesome] Viviana was also very helpful despite the slight language barrier (her primary language is Spanish). We were a group of 14 men and women ages 22 to 30 and we had a GREAT time! Although the home is slightly secluded because of its location, it gave us the privacy we needed for late night parties at the pool and was just right for a mid-day scavenger hunt. Transportation was also a part of our all-inclusive package and we are soooo happy that we did it because the streets in Costa Rica were pretty rough. We would definitely come back!!!

We also did the following excursions:
*ATV ride- gorgeous view with a delicious lunch
*Open-air ride through Niyaca Falls (instead of the horses). The hiking portion was so beautiful just be careful because some spots are slippery
*Dominical beach trip- although the beach has quite a few rocks, it was very nice to see the black sand. There were also little booths and food available.

From planning our our first family trip in 35+ years to the time we left, the staff at Villa Los Aires was phenomenal. Pablo and Stephen were SO helpful. Upon arrival we opted to let Vivianna have snacks waiting for us after our long flight and drive and she literally made the best salsa we have ever tasted. It didn't stop there... we planned on going out for dinner and experiences the local cuisine, but decided not to. Instead, we had Vivianna cook for us and WOW! It was world class. From appetizer's to deserts her mastery of the local culture with the ability to take out specific tastes into account was unsurpassed. Just WOW! And Pablo... Just Pablo! My family pretty much adopted him while we were there. It was supposed to be a family vacation, but by the second day we really couldn't imagine not inviting him along to all of our adventures, fishing, helicopter tour, souvenier shopping, food shopping... we made him tag along everywhere. We miss him. He turne our trip into something truly special! We went horseback riding, hiking, boating, fishing, did the tourist thing, but mostly we just throroughly enjoyed the family time and the getting to know the wonderful staff and the Costa Rican culture they were willing to share with us. Hernan was gracious enough to take me on horseback ride with his own horses that he personally trained through around the roads and trails nearby (and not so nearby) the house. It was just an amazing, once in a lifetime experience that I really don't think you could experience at another villa. Yes, you could find another beautiful place to stay with great views and comfortable, clean beds, but I really doubt you could find the incredible staff that made this Costa Rican vacation such a memorable and special experience for us. The villa was clean and well appointend and everything the pictures and reviews said it would be. Lots of wildlife and beautiful views (and oddly no bugs, yay!), too. The thing that made it so special was the people that make the villa so inviting and welcoming. Pablo, Vivianna and the exceptional staff are absolutely worth the rugged drive up to this gorgeous home away from home.

Celebration with family and friends at the Villa

  • 5 of 5
My husband, Ron, celebrated his 50th birthday with 20 of our closest friends and family at your Villa in Costa Rica. We stayed at the Villa August 2nd to August 9th. It was everything plus more!! We all had such a tremendous time at the Villa! From the time we first arrived with Viviana and Paulo greeting us to the time of our departure, we had a great experience. My daughters, Annamarie and Elise, really enjoyed spending time with their father on such a special occasion. Ron had been planning this trip for almost a year. He knew he wanted to experience Costa RIca and heard about the Villa through his co-workers. The excursions of horse-back riding, zip-lining, and white water rafting were enjoyed by all. Paulo and Viviana scheduled all of our rides to and from town and events. We could not have done it without their assistance. Paulo was fantastic. He made sure everyone had a great experience and would greet us every morning. Our breakfasts were always ready and everything was taken care of. The cooks, housekeepers, and everyone who worked at the Villa were all top notch!
Our meals were excellent. We had a breakfast buffet every morning (loved the fresh pineapples and juices)! We had an option for lunch which was delicious. Our dinners every night were on time and served with a smile. We loved the appetizers, meals, and desserts! The cooks made a birthday cake for Ron on his 5oth birthday - Tres Leches cake.
We even had dance lessons by Paulo. Paulo would always provide us with Costa RIca history and tell us about the area. Paulo toured the grounds with us - making sure we all got to see the beautiful waterfalls on the grounds.
The vacation was a time for our friends and family to enjoy each others company and celebrate Ron's 50th birthday in beautiful Costa Rica. Thank you for allowing us to stay at the Villa los Aires.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a wonderful visit to Villa Los Aires with family (5 adults) and 3 kids under the age of 10. Although the location was remote, it was definitely part of the draw and we were lucky to get to see lots of wildlife in the "yard" as well as enjoy the hiking and waterfalls. Our best wildlife spotting of the entire trip was the morning that Pablo, our host was giving us a tour of the property's waterfalls. Just as we were leaving the house, he spotted a sloth climbing down one of the trees in the front yard. We were all in awe and enjoyed spending 10 or so minutes watching the sloth climb about 10 feet. :)

Most days we left in the morning around 8am to do activities and returned by 4pm (around the the time the rain starting falling). Despite the rain, we would come home to enjoy the pool and relaxation on the patio while catching up on email (the wireless worked great). We very much enjoyed our nights in (as the drive in the rain and dark on the steep roads was not appealing) and were excited to taste the local cuisine that the staff prepared for us nightly.

There were definitely interesting creatures that would come out at night, and we all got a kick out of inspecting each one, the kids especially. Luckily, the doors to the bedrooms were kept closed at all times, so most of the creatures (grasshoppers, spiders, beetles, giant moths, frogs and lizards) were limited to the open areas (lizards were often found behind the closed doors).

All in all, a great vacation with wonderful accommodation.

A Great Choice

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 8 stayed for a week in August (rainy season) and had a wonderful stay at Villa Los Aires. We planned to use the van that was advertised with the property but ended up having to rent vehicles in San Jose, which was a complication but ended up working out for the best. I recommend paying attention to flight arrival times & sunset times and either allowing time to drive the 3.5 hours in daylight or staying your first night in San Jose. The drive from San Jose Airport was easy - nice roads, well marked, etc (we used the coastal toll road) but the last 30 minutes (from Dominical to the Villa) is steep with tight switchbacks and not a road I'd be excited to drive after dark (especially in the rain). The Villa was as pictured and described on the site - beautiful property, awesome waterfalls, big bedrooms with mini split air conditioners, which were a welcome relief from the heat & humidity, and every bedroom has its own bathroom. We had some big storms during our stay and lots of lightening, but no problems with the power whatsoever. Pablo (our host) was fantastic - guiding us to the waterfalls, spotting animals and pointing out interesting mushrooms and plants (we saw cusinga birds, a sloth, frogs, toucans, a coati & its baby and lots of cool lizards and bugs around the Villa) and he prepared a great complimentary breakfast for us every morning. The hot tub wasn't working quite right - Pablo said he needed an hours notice to get it warmed up, but it still wasn't hot a couple hours later. The daily maid service was a nice perk, as was the theater room (we thought "Romancing the Stone" would make a great addition to their library - Costa Rica reminded us of that movie). Loved everything about this trip - Pura Vida!

Green Adventure in a luxurious Costa Rican Villa

  • 5 of 5
The property was well kept and beautiful. The grounds were carefully maintained and lush. Toucans and macaws cavort in the trees right by the swimming pool. The rooms have AC and deluxe showers with plenty of hot water. Vivianna the house manager is a good communicator and did her best to see that we had a great stay. Our kids loved the media room where they chilled out with a movie after the days of river rafting, surfing and hiking and the over sized chess set in the garden.
There is a decent Mexican restaurant up the hill from the villa. if you want to cook they have a fabulous kitchen to cook in. Patricia, the cook can whip up anything you wish. If you want really healthy fish and meats ask her to grill on the BBQ otherwise everything will be sauteed.
Patricia makes a delicious plantain and serves all her meals with care and a flourish. Her steamed veggies and chicken soup were the healthiest things we ate in Costa Rica.
We would come back again for sure!
