Secluded Private Villa in Rainforest & Across from Beach

Secluded Private Villa in Rainforest & Across from Beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 17, 2014
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 9 Sleeps

You have the best of both worlds at Casa De Mariposas! - complete privacy of the villa and ultimate convenience. You'll have your toe in the ocean in a few minutes and just a 5 minute walk on the beach takes you to the center of the town of Jaco - a top tourist destination! Be sure to visit our website for lots of great pictures and the sights and sounds of Jaco and Costa Rica.

Your adventure begins at the newly remodeled accommodations of Casa De Mariposas - Spanish for "House of Butterflies". There are sixty native species in Costa Rica, many of which you will see on the property.

This secluded villa on the coast of the Pacific Ocean (2 MINUTES ACROSS FROM THE BEACH) is 2 stories, offering privacy between levels, spectacular ocean views, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen downstairs and kitchenette upstairs. Located on over 3/4 of an acre, with a private driveway and surrounded by a lush rainforest with no neighboring homes close enough to disturb your privacy, you'll enjoy the spacious patio and "botanical gardens" in peace and privacy. You'll thrill in the native trees and plants (pick your own bananas when in season) and wildlife that visit regularly, including toucans, macaws, parrots, colorful iguanas (harmless) and, occasionally, monkeys. A custom pool (December 2006) affords a luxury retreat from the day's activities.

An added bonus is that our guests are also welcome to the facilities of the Club Del Mar Resort, an exclusive private resort directly across the coastal road from Casa De Mariposas. The Club offers a wonderful Lounge, fine dining, pool, and Spa where you can book a relaxing facial or massage.

You can choose from the many adventures that await you, including the thrill of a canopy tour or zip line, ATV adventures into the rainforest with waterfalls, rivers and wildlife, world class fishing, beaches - including some of the best surfing available in the world, snorkeling, hiking, golf, horseback riding (beach or rainforest), motorcycle rental, and, of course, the best places to eat!

A must on your schedule is a visit to Quepos and the World Famous Manuel Antonio National Park, less than 45 minutes from Casa De Mariposas. You don't have to choose between the rainforest and the beach because the park offers both. Packed with the most unbelievable animals, birds and flora, you'll walk the well maintained trails and come face to face with several species of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, toucans, parrots, macaws and dozens of other animal life, all in their unrestricted and natural habitat. Walk to any of the four white sand beaches and explore the tide pools or relax on the beach when not enjoying the blue ocean waters (85 degrees). Don't be surprised if a family of friendly squirrel monkeys with a baby or two come and visit while you lay on the beach! For the coffee lover, don't forget on the way back to stop at Cafe Milagro located on the front street as you enter Quepos for steaming hot fresh coffee beans made the old fashion way. (Beware! Once you have Cafe Milagro coffee you will be hooked for life.)

We are happy to assist you in planning your itinerary and booking your adventures. Our goal is for you to create lasting memories of your visit to Costa Rica.

Thank you for visiting Casa De Mariposas!

Great times at Casa Di Mariposas

  • 4 of 5
I must say that I had a great time staying at this house. The description fits this house perfectly. You have the benefits of seclusion, while still having the beach and town just a short drive or walk away. There were a total of 6 of us and we never felt on top of one another in this house. I've never seen or stayed in a house like this. It is built into the rainforest and there is an abundance of wildlife around the house that makes your stay even more interesting. Les, the owner of the property was extremely helpful answering all of my questions and setting up transportation from San Jose. Maria, the house keeper was also extremely helpful to us and super polite! You can not beat this house for the price, and I will most likely be staying here when I go back!

Beautiful home with ocean view

The owners were helpful and very nice. The house was beautiful and was a short walk to the beach. I definitely recommend this home to anyone who is looking to stay in the jaco area.

Beautiful house!

  • 4 of 5
House was fantastic, large bedrooms and bathrooms. the two caretakers, one on site and one a phone call away if needed, were friendly and helpful. House was very clean. There were 6 of us staying here and we never felt like we were 'on top' of one another, lots of room. We used the facilities of Club del Mar Resort, and the owner was very nice too us. We had the best of both worlds, a beautiful house and use of a resort and minutes from the ocean. Would definitely recommend it. The only downside is the traffice noise, but apparently Les and the owner of Club del Mar are trying to convince Jaco officials to slow the traffic down. Jaco is a great vacation spot, lots to do, we arranged horsebacking riding, zip lining, visited Manual Antonio national park (beautiful beach), and rented a vehicle and drove into the mountains and visited a coffee plantation. All in, a fantastic holiday. Thanks Les, Maria & Alex!

The architecture is unique and we loved taking pictures throughout the property. The high wood ceiling is beautiful Bathroom and shower space excellent for honeymooners and for baby tubs. The ramp was quite a challenge to drive up to so we had transportation generally leave us by the stairs. Really get the feel of being in a rainforest. No mosquito attacks. Pool is clean and warm. Kitchen nicely equipped and 2 refrigerators were perfect. Balcony offers amazing views. We left cute ladybug and bumble bee infant floating devices we hope other families will enjoy.
Truly unlimited access to Club Del Mar facilities whose staff is very hospitable and pleasant. Food also good but pricier than nearby delicious Soda y Marisqueria Alta Mar.

Casa de Mariposa

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we went with two other couples, this house was perfect. It was clean, efficient and met all of our needs. I can be a little over orangized when travelling but the owner was extremely helpful in answering all of my questions in great detail and the welcome letter is great giving you tips on what to do and not do which was great. We used the transportation service that the owner recommended and they were awesome as well. There is a person on the property that was very helpful, checking in on us each morning, cleaning the pool and taking care of anything that we needed or asked for. You can walk to town but you can also just go across the street to the resort and ask them to call you a cab which made things very easy. Downtown Jaco is very nice, the people were very helpful and always pleasant, Whaoos is a must. I would most certainly stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Jaco. Everything was great...........

Awesome Villa!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This villa was absolutely breathtaking!! It was even better than described!! The only complaint we had was the noise level from the road. We are used to it being illegal for trucks to use their jake brakes, not so for Costa Rica apparantly. The noise did make it hard to relax and sleep late on vacation. But other than that, I can't say enough good things about this house. The price is very reasonable. Alex was so wonderful!! We tried to be self sufficient and not bother him. The one time we tried to call our own taxi, we never did get them to understand we needed a large taxi for 6 people. Alex was invaluable to us!! He called the taxi service for us many times, was available anytime we had questions, helped us with the grill, kept the pool nice and clean, and gave us suggestions and tips on where to eat reasonably, and just generally did everything we asked of him. Club Del Mar was incredible!!! The beach breathtaking!!
Les, the owner, was very helpful and gave more info on the house and Jaco, Costa Rica than we ever thought we would need. We were concerned when our plane was delayed, that our transport would leave without us. One call to Les and he assured us the van would be there, and it was.
I can't say enough good about this villa, Alex, and the owner Les.
I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Costa Rica!!

Thanks so much Les and Alex for an incredible vacation!!!!
