About The Owner

In the States I run a manufacturing business. When I,m in Costa Rica at 'Villa Cielo', I relax like no other place in the world. The atmosphere is truly magical. Fish, golf, explore or just have a drink with my Chef and friend Ernesto & you will learn the meaning of 'Pura Vida'

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Playa Hermosa

Location, location, location, is the main reason I purchased the property. The pacific view is magnificent. The mountainview is a close second. You have the feeling of absolute seclusion, yet are only 15 minutes away from all the restaurants & entertainment you could ever want.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Cielo is a photographer's paradise. You can spend hours viewing the wildlife & fauna that abound the property. Toucans, monkeys, iguanas, & several species of hawks are just a few of the attractions that will grace your lens.

On top of the world!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a bachelor party and could NOT have picked a better place for our fun times! The driveway is pretty insane as it climbs straight up the mountain, but once you arrive at the home and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views, it's all worth it! We even saw monkeys climbing around in the trees around the house! Iguanas were everywhere on the pool deck every morning. We had breakfast made for us everyday where the staff went above and beyond! There were so accommodating to our every need, from taxis to food to helping us with activities to do. I suggest getting many meals there if you can... We would love to come back one day! Owner (located in the states) was very responsive via email and telephone, which was important to us as well.

Wedding Party Housing

  • 5 of 5

Our family (up to 20 people) were in Costa Rica for a wedding and staying at the Villa Cielo. Our stay was as close to perfect as you could get! The staff was marvelous and the assistance in the coordination of transports, taxis, and activities was excellent. The entire party thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the sunsets, and the beautiful house. What a treat to come back from a day of adventure to a wonderful dinner cooked for our family! We would definitely go back.

On your visit, we had the great serivce the other reviews posted. Angelo made our stay excellent. The villa is beautiful. The staff was too happy to provide for our needs. We picked the full food option and had great meals three times a day. And when we wanted to cook that was no problem. But the thing that made our trip great was Angelo's ability to arange for the activitys we wanted to do. We were picked up at the airport by a driver that was at our service for the whole stay. Much easier than renting cars! We wanted to take an ATV tour, do the croc tour and most of all fish. The boats available range from center consoles to 43' custom sportfisherman. Take my word, go for the big boat! Locally made, they are built for the conditions you will likely face. That means lots of fish, very warm, calm seas. Big cockpit, roomy cabin and powerfull A/C. The crew is friendly and expert at their jobs. They provide cold drinks with beer, fresh fruit and a nice lunch. We hooked our first fish rightaway and totalled 13 sailfish. Once they saw that we handle

the job, they let us hook, land and release the fish. It was the best trip any of could remember. Angelo booked the trip and made it very easy.

Call him and book your visit.

Great Place... Best Vacation in Years

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a family trip to Costa Rica. My family is large (6 kids ages 5 to 19) We were joined by another family (4 kids 4-14). The house was easily able to accommodate us, with 6 bedrooms. The bedrooms were very large and each had a very nice bathroom.

To begin with the place is beautiful as the pictures are very accurate, but in some respects don't capture the full beauty of the house and surrounding area. The house is up on a very steep hill. There is a great view of the surrounding countryside and the ocean. In the morning, the monkeys would play in the near by trees. Iguanas were frequent visitors, and there were tons of birds and other wildlife. Since the house is so high, macaws and toucans and other exotic birds would fly by within easy view. A toucan hung out in a tree right near the house. (One recommendation, bring good binoculars)

The pool was great, sizeable and very refreshing. The deck was the best part of the house, as there were great 360 degree views from the deck, with sunrises in the morning and sunsets at night.

The staff was terrific. We took the food and laundry service and didn’t have to do a thing while we were there. The staff made excellent local meals, and the place was always spotless which was an amazing accomplishment given the number of little kids we had with us. The staff speaks almost no English, so be prepared with your high school Spanish and Google translate. I strongly recommend the food service as it would be a huge hassle to go into town to get dinner and or food regularly.

The house is fairly remote as it is about 15-20 minutes to the nearest big town, Jaco. A car is helpful, but understand that the road to the house is extremely steep, so would strongly recommend a jeep or like vehicle. The road up to the house was a bit scary, so nervous drivers beware. We loved the privacy, and the place was very secure. We didn't have a car but taxi service was easy and pretty quick.

Manuel Antonio is not far and Jaco is a good launching point for most tours. Angelo was very helpful in setting up tours as he had someone come to the house on the first day. Really recommend the ATV tour... Was the best thing we did.

Angelo was a great host. Helped with tours, transport and accommodations and was very easy to work with.

I have stayed at a lot of VRBOs and this was by far the best overall experience.

A mom who really needed a vacation

  • 5 of 5

The doorway to heaven..... A vacation at Villa Cielo is nothing short of heavenly. We had a great family trip to Costa Rica. We were a group of 8 ranging from 2 to 62 years old & everyone had an awesome time. Villa Cielo offered every luxury possible. First, the house offers the most beautiful views imaginable. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The house was large, clean & confrontable. The grounds are landscaped nicely but kept indigenous so that you may enjoy close views of Monkeys & Toucans in their natural surroundings.

The staff was friendly but not intrusive & very hard working especially the villa manager Catherine. Catherine arranged everything. She is a wealth of information.

Let me list a few examples of what Catherine arranged for us:

Car service-that showed up on time every time with cold bottled water.

Chief- delicious gourmet meals made with fresh local fish, chicken & dairy. The "frescas" were so good it's indescribable.

Nanny/ Babysitting- When I mentioned to Catherine while booking the trip that I would be traveling with a 2yr old not only did she "child proof" the villa but she suggested nanny service. Which for all you moms out there is sometimes a scary topic. Originally I said no thank you but after thinking about it. I thought if I don't have help I'm not going to have much if any time to relax. So then I looked into bringing a nanny with us but that was going to be very expensive. So I went back to Catherine to inquire further about her nanny service. She explained that the nanny would be a lovely woman that she personally trusted. Well I was still on the fence until I heard the pricing. Lets just say compared to New York babysitting costs it's very economical. So I said I'll give it a try. Well let me tell made my vacation an actual vacation. Karla the nanny was absolutely wonderful. My daughter took to her right away. Karla was responsible, sweet & extremely attentive. She played with my daughter, fed her, applied her sunscreen every hour like clock work. Karla was like family by the end of the week.

Lastly, the tours. Catherine set up a whole presentation of tours & activities for us to choose from. All 8 of us got to do a variety activities & sightseeing. Zip lining, fishing, rainforest, waterfalls, monkeys, crocodiles & snorkeling.

You name it we did it because everything was very well run & safe. It was a super amazing family vacation. I totally recommend it for all ages.
