My husband and i grew up in oklahoma. We started our own horse trailer business with three of my husbands brothers and his dad, called sundowner trailers. We started out working in a cattle barn and grew into a multi million dollar business with sales yards all across the united states. Last year we retired from the business after 30 plus years. Then we decided to turn our home in costa rica into a bed and breakfast, after having many people stop and ask us if we rented our home out. One day while sitting on the verandah we made the decision to let other people enjoy what we feel is a million dollar view.
My husband and i have been together for 40 years, have two son's and 3 grandson's. We love the outdoors, nature and most of all our family.
We first went to costa rica on a vacation and fell in love with the country and its people. After going back there several times i had a friend that bought some property there. I decided to buy part of her property, and that is where the villa is today. I have traveled the world and still each time i visit costa rica i fall in love with it all over again.
LaQuitta Shipman purchased this villa in 2009
This is the closet beach town on the ocean from the san jose airport. We have the only villa that is located in the rain forest with an ocean view that is only a five minute walk to the beach and has a million dollar view. We are centrally located in the country, and, within only a couple or three hours from everything costa rica has to offer. Most of which are right here in jaco.
We offer our own tour guide 'oscar' that will take you places most guides won't tell you about such as waterfalls and hikes. He'll go on tours with you if you'd like and tell you about different plants and animals. He speaks very good english. He has his own van that will carry 8 to 10 people. He offers airport transfer to and from the airport. His wife 'andrea' is an exceptional good cook. She will be cooking your breakfast at the villa, and on request she will offer other meals to be prepared for your dinner. Only if you want them and that will be an extra price that goes to her. Inquire about it and she will give you a great price. Everything she cooks is fresh and very very good. She will also come into your room and clean if you need her too. Other then this, oscar and andrea will give you your space and you will hardly know their there.
Everything about Villa Mariposa is beautiful. The house, the décor, the location...everything. Oscar and Andrea are the perfect hosts. Andrea's meals are not to be missed. Oscar is the man for anything you might need. And they are pros, they know when you want to sleep in, they know when you want privacy, they know where to send you and who to talk with. The pool is fantastic, but Andrea's margaritas by the pool are better! Jaco is a little out of the way as a tourist destination, definitely not the resort vibe. But if you are adventurous, free-spirited and don't own Madras shorts...this is the place for you!
The house and where its located is amazing! Talk about some of the most gorgeous views you will ever see!! Villa Mariposa has beautiful clean rooms with huge windows that open all the way, giving you the sounds of the rain forest. It can be romantic or a great place for kids. This place has an Infinity pool to die for! The sunset views are unforgettable. And that's not all...Oscar is the best tour guide you could ask for. Hes very intelligent and most importantly loves what he does. Ask him anything about Costa Rica! I always will love staying at Villa Mariposa!
Very comfortable with designer details. I don't know what I enjoyed more, waking up to the cries of the scarlet macaws, watching the monkeys jumping from tree to tree above the veranda or watching the spectacular sunsets from the pool! This is truly a dream vacation. I have been twice and will definitely be back. Oscar and his family are a fantastic addition, as the meals are great and Oscar's tours that are available at an extra charge are definitely worth the cost! You see parts of Costa Rica that most tourists never see. I look forward to my next trip!
I have traveled a lot in my life but I keep going back to Costa Rica, and when I go Villa Mariposa is where I stay. The views, the sounds of the ocean, the beautiful villa and the accessibility to all of the wonders of Costa Rica make this an incomparable place. I walk on the beach in the morning and hike from the house up into the Rain Forest in the afternoon. When I opt to eat in the meals are delicious (rice pudding!!!!) and Oscar has taken me on some of the most interesting and informative trips I have ever experienced. 5 stars for this retreat and I will be back for many years to come.
Omg!!! What a beautiful place this is... We will differently be back... The attention for detail was over the top.. Thank you for letting us feel at home and for all the extras... This place gets a big thumbs up...
Jaco is centrally located. Jaco offers swimming, dune buggy's, four-wheeling, hiking, world class surfing, sport fishing, zip lines, bird watching or visit manuel antonio national park,a short 45 minute trip. There you'll see many of costa rica's wildlife. You can also hire 'oscar'our personal guide to take you to monteverde cloud forest which is about a 3 hour drive. There they offer amazing hikes in the cloud forest and some amazing zip line adventures. If you enjoy animal watching they also offer some amazing night hikes. While there you'll enjoy cooler weather as well. You really need to spend at least a full day to a day and a half there. You can also hire our guide to take you on an overnight trip to arenal national park where you will see arenal volcano and arenal lake. They offer warm pools of water that come straight from the volcano for you to set and relax in at their many inns and resorts. You can also enjoy some of the many breath taking garden tours. We always hire oscar because he knows his way around and likes taking our customers to some of his favorite spots that the other tour guides don't take you. Such as hidden water falls. He lets you take your time and enjoy everything costa rica has to offer. I highly recommend him. I also feel that his prices are very reasonable. Oscar can also take you on two fantastic monkey tours.
We also offer for an extra expense our house keeper 'andrea'. She is a fantastic cook and will cook for you on request a lovely dinner. We do ask that you give her plenty notice up front so that she has plenty time to shop and prepare the meal for you. She can give you a few ideas as well as to what she can prepare. You won't regret letting her do this for you.
