About Stephen

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.

Stephen purchased this villa in 2007

Why Stephen chose Puntarenas

Our location is key - a secluded tropical mountain setting yet close to the ocean and town. The area is secure and access is easy. In addition, the temperature is moderate here at the higher altitude and the variety of wildlife is amazing.

What makes this villa unique

Set on 60 acres of private tropical forest with jungle swimming pools and waterfalls make this property unique. We have hiking trails to access the natural wonders around us. There is a full staff to insure your comfort. Our concierge comes each morning to cook breakfast and is available to help arrange the days activities. Housekeepers tidy up each day and there is 24 hours per day security. The cooks will come each evening on request and charge just a very modest fee,

Our concierge services are included with the rental. he can arrange passenger van shuttle for guests going to/from the airport, beach or activities. He is expert in arranging local adventures and activities, meals, and transportation. We provide a local cell phone for your use during your stay should you have difficulties away form the house you can call Pablo for help. He is available 24 hours for any urgency.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends with kids stayed here over Thanksgiving week 2015. We had the most amazing time. To this day is the most talked about trip we all have ever taken. Pablo was the best and so was all. We had dinner in a few times prepared for us. We even had horseback rides with nearby family/staff. Everyone was soo great. Hiking. Waterfalls. Surfing. Fishing. Parasailing. Zip lining. White water rafting. Beach. Wild life adventure. Catamaran. We did it all and had a blast. The property itself was entirely gorgeous. Hiking. Waterfalls. Wildlife. So beautiful. Pablo took us into town to shop and get groceries. He set up all our adventures. We looooved this place. Everyone wants to go back ❤️❤️❤️ You will need a 4wheel drive vehicle. You will need to plan to get there in daylight if possible. We stayed the night in San Jose, went to see a volcano and park in the morning, then headed to the villa. It was as perfect. Thank you so much for the best trip of our lives!!

This house is truly amazing. You will not be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

Villa los Aires is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The house is gorgeous and there is so much room for you and your family to spread out and enjoy. The views are just breathtaking. But what really makes this experience is Pablo and the staff. They are the nicest people on the planet and will do everything in their power to make your vacation the most memorable. No matter what your wish is, Pablo will make it happen. Patricia's meals are very delicious and I highly recommend you have her cook for you.

The villa was beautiful as in the photos. The staff was very professional!

  • 5 of 5

Our 6 day stay in the jungle was truly an experience we will never forget. It was a total of 9 of us staying in the villa. We had plenty of space. The on grounds staff was excellent and very professional! Pablo absolutely made our experience! He made sure our eating times corresponded with our daily activities. Patricia was a great cook. The food was delicious. We recommend white water rafting, horse back riding with Pablo's uncle, and the catameran tour. Pablo really knows the best of the best. Just take his advice and you will be in good hands. We look forward to returning!! Pura Vida!!

I stayed with a group of friends at Villa Los Aires and the house was incredible! The staff does a fantastic job keeping the property in pristine condition. One of the greatest things about the Villa is definitrly Pablo, the concerierge. He went far above and beyond to make sure that we had everything that we needed along with helping us figure out how to make our trip an unforgettable expirence. I don't know what we would have done without him! The entire staff was friendly and attentive. The food that was prepared for us was also incredible! We will definitely be coming back!
