All have luxurious bathrooms and individual climate control. The master suite, almost 2000 sq. ft. itself, occupies the entire second floor. In addition there is a movie theater and wine cellar.

A live-in house keeper and 24/7 management company will attend to your every need. Enjoy the blue green glass tile pool with built in chaise lounges, infinity edge, and swim up bar or walk to the beach. World class surfing, fishing, and bird watching are just steps away.

Available services at the house include gourmet chef, bartender, masseuse, facials, pedicures, manicure, and yoga instructors. The area has little tourist pressure, but none the less benefits from several grocery stores, liquor stores, and a remarkable assortment of European and Costa Rican restaurants.

At Villa Paraiso you can look forward to the vacation of a lifetime.

Trip of A Lifetime

  • 5 of 5
The house was even more breathtaking the the photos. All of the rooms were lovely and the Master Suite was amazing! We enjoyed swimming in the infinity pool and watching the Costa Rican Sunset. Esiday kept everything so immaculate and provided fresh flowers in our room. We so enjoyed Chef Ranier's hospitality. He spoiled us with his fresh culinary creations! The wine cellar was a great bonus for choosing the wines for the meals. The last night we watched a movie in the theater. The location was just perfect for exploring the sights and wild life. We already recommended the place to our friends and look forward to returning again very soon!!!

Vacation of a lifetime! By far exceeded my expectations! Gorgeous home with breath taking views and sunsets!
Most incredible home that I've had the pleasure of staying in for 7 days, and plan to return again this year for hopefully an even longer stay. The owner and staff were absolutely wonderful in accommodating all our needs. This home definitely has it ALL, and then some! Everything about my stay at this home was incredible! It almost seems too good to be true, but rest assured - your jaw will drop when you walk into this home! Yes, it is THAT spectacular! However long your trip is for, you will wish it was for longer!

Perfect vacation

We loved our vacation at this beautiful house. This is an amazing house with a spectacular view of the pacific. We had 5 adults and 4 kids with us. We enjoyed the gorgeous pool day and night. The kids loved watching movies in the theater room and we had the private chefs come two nights. The concierge Alex was very helpful planning our day trips. The maid service was a welcome surprise as she washed our clothes daily, keeped clean/dry towels at the pool and the house tidy. I hope to return to this house someday!!

Dream Vacation for Family in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
My children have recently been to Disney, New York, Washington DC, Prague, Vienna and Costa Rica. They keep asking to go back to one place over and over...Costa Rica!!! The villa made our trip to Costa Rica the best family vacation to date! From the pool, to the upstairs mater bedroom, to the beautiful grounds, to the kitchen and everywhere in between (especially the movie theater) the children were blown away. The staff was incredible and helped us with all of our activities (they made great recommendations). If you're looking for a family vacation of a lifetime (surfing, zip lining, horse back riding, fishing, yoga, all while in the middle of the most beautiful country) in the best villa ever, this is place. If I have to make one complaint it's that we had to leave! You truly will not want to leave.

Incredible- best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing! We had the best vacation we have ever had. The staff was friendly and helpful! I recommend the personal chef as well as the personal car driver- it made our excursions flawless and our meals were spectacular. The house has an amazing view of the ocean and is just a treat to stay ! We will be going back next summer! The drive from the airport is about three hours but the views make the drive enjoyable and go by very quickly! I would highly recommend this property to anyone- it was amazing and the kids had a blast! We did horseback ride to waterfall, walk through. Rainforest, zip line through the canopy, surfing lessons, and just around corner from house is a private waterfall that the kids loved. There is a rope swing that they jumped from almost every day! If you can I would book this today because you will not be disappointed!!

Unbelievable home!! Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I can honestly say that this was one of the BEST vacations that I have ever taken. As a property manager of vacation rental homes in NE Florida, I was extremely impressed by the cleanliness and attention to detail at the Villa Paraiso. The second that you walk through the front door and look through the glass doors to the ocean, you feel as though you are in paradise! The living areas, both inside and outside, provided plenty of space for a large family or group, and the kitchen was very well stocked with everything that we needed to make meals every day. Watching a movie in the theater room ended up being a great way to unwind after a long day of exploring the local beaches and zip-lining (Hacienda Baru had great zip-lining and nature trails, and was located only about 10 minutes from the house). And the pool.... well, that just speaks for itself! It was absolutely beautiful!!! The caregiver of the home was also very friendly and accommodating, and really made every minute of our vacation feel special. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and everyone!!!

*Just a little hint... walk up the driveway, above the house, as the sun starts to set. These were some of the best views that I saw throughout the week, and there were TONS of fireflies as it started to get dark!

From the Owner

We did not plan on buying anything on our first visit to the area. The beauty, tranquility, and romance of the area overwhelmed us and we bought a lot on impulse. After a year of thinking we had gone mad buying property in a foreign county, we decided we might as well take the deep plunge and started construction of the villa. It took almost 5 years of a crew of artisans and craftsmen to complete the project, but it is absolutely amazing.

Nearest Airport : International: San Jose (SJO) Local Quepos (XQP) at 110 Miles Nearest Barpub : La Parcella at 500 Metres Nearest Golf : at 15 Miles Nearest Restaurant : La Parcella at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Domincalito at 100 Metres Car: recommended

Villa Paraiso is located within the Osa Peninsula, which National Geographic describes as: “the most biologically intense place on earth.” The house is an easy scenic 2.5-3 hour drive from the international airport in San Jose (SJO) down modern and recently paved highways. Or it can be reached by a quick 15 minute commuter flight, which leaves from the international airport and then a short 30 minute drive. Or for the ultimate experience, a 30 minute helicopter ride which lands at the house. The beauty of the area is that it has all the tourist activities of the rest of the country with virtually no tourist pressure. Perhaps, that is why Travel and Leisure Magazine dubbed the area the 'Hottest Travel Destinations of 2013.' It's also why Lonely Planet says of the area, “this is undoubtedly Costa Rica’s top spot to witness wildlife at its wildest.” Despite it's remoteness, there are amazing restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, and gift shops. Whether it's bird watching, hiking, surfing, or fishing, it's all a world class experience for those staying at the Villa Paraiso.

From the Owner

THE VIEW!!! I've taken tens of thousands of photos and I have yet to do the view justice. It's just so big that you can't take it all in in one photograph. You feel like you are literally perched on top of the world looking out on the most beautiful coastal view. If that were not enough, the 10 foot tide which sweeps in twice a day constantly changes the landscape. And the sunsets are beyond spectacular!
