vacation rental description

Splendid villa in a beautiful, secluded mountain setting.  Fully staffed with daily concierge, housekeeping, maintance, evening waiter and security.  There are 5 BRs in the main house and 3 additional BRs available in the garden complex.  The sights and sounds of wildlife, open-air tropical living and unforgettable views have all been captured in one special place - Villa Los Aires. Just completed in Spring 2007, this uniquely Costa Rican Villa is situated on a picturesque hillside in the rugged mountains of the Southern Pacific zone, only 12 miles from the ocean at Dominical. The main building (6000 sf/3 levels) sits in a private jungle reserve of 66 acres which has 5 large waterfalls, two rivers with nice swimming areas, spring fed creeks and kilometers of hiking trails. Incredible views of the valley and a cooler mountain climate set this house apart from the beach dwellings. Warm days and cool nights are the norm. The main house sleeps 14 persons and the garden rooms can accomodate another 8 guests There is an in-ground pool and 10 person spa. Giant chess is in the garden. Separate laundry facility and work out area. Maintenance and housekeeping staff are on site. For a nominal fee, a cook can be arranged for breakfast, lunch and/or evening meals.
Menus will be tailored to your preferences. Sample Menus are at our website.
With no other homes in sight, and lots of surrounding jungle, you have all the privacy needed to enjoy your stay in peace... with the exception of some noisy locals. ie: the Howler monkeys and the toucans.
Water in the house comes from our own jungle spring and is filtered/purified and perfectly safe for drinking. Vehicle parking is abundant however the locals tend to prefer horses over cars.  Because of our remote location, guests at Villa Los Aires  should have 4WD vehicles, especially in the wetter green season.

Groceries and beverages can be delivered to the house for your stay but are not included in the prices quoted below.While still available this year, take advantage of the opportunity to rent the whole lodge for your family or group. We are a perfect spot for a small wedding or commitment ceremony!
We guarantee you will enjoy the adventure, the incredible scenery and the comfort at Villa Los Aires.

Green Adventure in a luxurious Costa Rican Villa

Review submitted: June 30, 2014   Date of arrival: June 22, 2014

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!

Amazing Experience

Review submitted: May 16, 2014   Date of arrival: April 27, 2014

It will be tough to top the week we had at the Villa Los Aires.
Rachel helped coordinate our excursions before our arrival as well as our transportation to and from the airport. Viviana was there to help us with anything we needed once we touched down in CR. I would strongly recommend taking advantage of the cooks on site for meals. For one thing it's a bit of a ride, 30 minutes or so to the nearest restaurant, but also because your not going to find anything better than the incredible, fresh home cooked meals Patricia and company will prepare for you. I might miss the food the most! Rachel recommended the Titi Canopy Tour, and the Catamaran tour. Both were about an hour ride from the property and big hits with my friends/family. Highly recommend them both. The property itself is very clean and the surrounding views are impressive. Very secluded, quite and peaceful. I married my girlfriend of 13 years at Villa Los Aires, with 19 guests, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. We can't wait to go back!

Good trip

Review submitted: March 2, 2014   Date of arrival: February 7, 2014

We stayed at Villa Los Aires in February 2014 for 6 nights. We had a great time. The use is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Viviana and her husband did a great job accommodating us. They were extremely helpful and flexible with out big group of people. They did a great job cooking meals for us, and accommodating members of our group with food allergies. Viviana set up snorkeling and white water rafting trips for us, both of which we're amazing. She also recommending a certain company for zip lining which we ended up doing on our own. Again, it was an amazing time. We couldn't have asked for better caretakers.

Here are a few things people may want to consider before renting:

1. One of the rooms in the main house does not have AC.

2. The weather was beautiful. No rain, no wind, sunny days, yet the house is in the mountains of Central America which is why I think we lost power almost everyday we were there. Once we lost power for about 12 hours, but according to Viviana the whole area did. It was from approximately 10pm to 10am. It must happen pretty often since all the rooms are equip with battery powered LED light strips which was helpful. The unhelpful thing is about half of them didn't work, and none of them worked in our room. To use the bathrooms we took pool water in a 5 gallon jug and hauled it up to our rooms to fill the toilet tank. We were okay with all of this because it's all part of the adventure. But I think it would be helpful for others to know.

2. The hot water didn't work in our bedroom for the first 2 days we're were there and the cold water didn't work in the upstairs bedroom the entire time we were there.

3. The hottub didn't work while we were there which out of everything was probably the one thing we were disappointed about. The nights were cool and it was perfect hottub weather.

4. One screen in our bedroom windows was old and had tears in it. One tear was quite large.

5. The chess set was ill maintained with spider webs all over it and debris on the board.

6. Their website says the hiking trails are maintained, but they are not. There is a large waterfall pictured on their website, but the trail is no longer there. We never found it after a day of hiking.

We had a great time at Villa Los Aires. Thank you very much
