Born, raised, and educated in Costa Rica. I love my country and I know you will too. Traveled the world and there is no place like Costa Rica. Come stay and enjoy our people, customs, and cuisine.

I adore the sit around the large terraces and guard the amazing sunsets in the property– I practically live on it! You can contemplate at the mountains; watch the stars illuminating the dark sky. There is something about the Eco Luxury home that makes me relax. You can’t be there and not relax. I feel rooted and grounded there, closer to nature and at peace spiritually. I enjoy picking the fruits from the large variety of trees and when is the season, I admire the mangos and its beautiful colors decorating the property and attracting all kinds of wildlife.

There's a lot to do here to get back to nature!

Please email me if you have any questions or if you would like to know about our seasonal specials.

Siney Calvo purchased this house in 2004

I was tired of living in the city and dealing with traffic and people all the time. I just wanted to get away. I found this property in 2004 and I loved it. I built everything from the ground up and I know that you will enjoy your stay as much as I enjoy having you.

I have never been to any place like this property. We have the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. The property is right outside the city of Jaco and I fell in love because I always felt safe and I didn't have to worry about neighbors, noise, or anyone bothering my family and guests.

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2014
My family and I spent seven days at the Villas. First of all… the entire staff was professional, friendly and accommodating. They helped us with everything: airport transportation, suggesting and booking daily adventures like zip lining, volcano tours, waterfall repelling, places to shop, booking a car rental, getting terrific directions and restaurant recommendations. We took advantage of a personal guided tour of the property. The host also took us to the town of Orotina for the farmers market and proceeded to give us a personal fruit tasting. Where else could you go where somebody would do this for you? The man who took us was so informative. I was worried about communicating with the locals. I barely remember any of my high school Spanish so I was so grateful to the staff for helping me with key words and phrases so I could easily navigate through the small towns and beach communities. No matter how stupid or complicated our questions were, the staff was eager and happy to help. I would highly recommend Villas Del Ray. It’s perfect for the entire family. My blind sister had a wonderful tactile experience. She enjoyed the wonderful aroma of the fruit trees and beautiful flowers as well as an enjoyable swim in the beautiful pool each day and walking on the trails. It was like relaxing in paradise.

Owner's Response: Hello Mr. M

Thank you for the great review. I am glad to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay. We were amazed your sister was as adventuresome as she was. She never once complained about her disability. Instead of worrying about what she couldn't do she surprised us with everything she could and would do. I was so happy to hear she loved the zip lining as well as the rest of the tours and that all of the tour guides were helpful and accommodating.

I also wanted to thank you for leaving the home clean and in the same condition as when you arrived. We have been very lucky that most of our guests treat the home as if it were their own, but you went above and beyond when you cleaned the home before you left. It is greatly appreciated. Also, housekeeping wanted me to thank you for leaving your leftover colones for them.

We enjoyed meeting all of you and hope you visit this beautiful country again. Even if you do not stay at the property please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Thanks again for everything and please send our best wishes to your family,

Siney C.

Spring Break Girls Only

  • Stayed: Apr 2014
Spring Break in Costa Rica was awesome! A girlfriend and I shared a two room villa and loved it! The villa was gorgeous. It was big and roomy with a full kitchen. We really appreciated the kitchen so we had the option of eating out or making a meal and cocktail at the villa. There was internet so I could keep my friends back at home up to date with my daily adventures. The staff gave us great recommendations so I went zip lining and my friend and I went to Hermosa Beach. The mornings on the property were really nice. We put on our sneakers and walked the trails. The air smelled so good and sweet from all the fruit trees and flowers. It was warm and humid so the pool became a must and we always had it to ourselves. The staff at Villas Del Ray were very accommodating and nice to talk to. I had such a great time there, I’m going to see if I can get my entire family together to spend Christmas at the Villas. .

Spring in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 15, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2014
I just spent a week at Villas Del Ray and had the most wonderful relaxing time. The grounds areMother so beautiful. Each morning I awoke to the melodic songs of the birds. I then took a walk on one of the trails and picked my own fresh breakfast of mangos, bananas, star fruit and cashew nut fruit, delicious! (Who knew that a cashew nut grew on such a juicy, interesting textured fruit?) I relaxed in the beautifully decorated villa and took advantage of the free DVD rentals. I spent each sunset in the pool or enjoying drinks on the patio, lovely. It was truly a fantastic way to enjoy the beauty, delicacies and natural tranquility of Costa Rica. I will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Hello Mrs. D,

Thank you for the great review. We really enjoyed having all of you. Hopefully next time you visit the papaya trees and pineapples plants will have larger fruits on them. I am glad you and your family enjoyed the property and rental car we arranged. I didn't receive a call, so I am sure you made it to the airport without any problems. It should have been easy with the directions I gave you. I hope to see all of you again and please send my regards to your family and friends.

Take care,

Siney C.

an amazing place to stay

  • Submitted: Apr 5, 2014

The service was excellent. The houses were clean, spacious and comfortable. We had the opportunity to see a variety of birds and howler monkeys. When I mentioned how disappointed I would be if I didn't see the monkeys we were told when and where to see them as well as a courtesy call when they were around.
We received detailed information about where to shop. Siney found out about tours quickly and booked them for us. A lovely place to stay and the informed staff made sure we didn't waste time locating places to see or booking trips.

Owner's Response: Hello,

Thank you very much for the review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to see the howler monkeys. They are so quiet when they are not howling it sometimes is tough to find them if you don't know where to look. We really enjoyed having all of you and hope sometime you are able to make it back down with your family, or maybe friends.

Please keep in touch and let us know how everything is going back in Canada.

Thanks again and take care,

First Trip to Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Garrett and Siney made our first trip to Costa Rica very enjoyable – they were helpful and always ready to make suggestions to enhance our trip.
Siney arranged for a driver to pick us up from San Jose Airport and take us back to the property. Upon our arrival we were met by Siney and Garrett with glasses of Sangria to enjoy on the terrace with its beautiful view of trees. The villa we were assigned to was lovely with everything we would need for a two week stay. I would agree with another reviewer who said that the owners had spared no expense on making the villas beautiful and comfortable. There are new appliances and also nice linens on the beds and in the bathroom. We also enjoyed the patio outside which had a covered roof and lots of comfy chairs to sit and relax. The property has many fruit trees and we had fresh fruit every day. On one day we got to see the Howler monkeys playing in the trees which was a great treat to see them in the wild and not behind bars as in a zoo. We also enjoyed the pool later in the day when the temperature had dropped a little.
Siney and Garrett also helped to arrange for us to go food shopping and also go on several tours. There were many highlights to our holiday but we loved the local flavors that Garrett introduced us to which included the fruit market where we got to try many fruits we had never seen before, also going to the bakery to buy fresh bread and pastries and the local grocery store to buy basics. The fresh fish market where we bought fish and saw fishermen fishing and also mending their nets on the beach was also a highlight. We also did some tours to the coffee plantation, Poas volcano, different beaches and other local attractions. We were lucky that Garrett was not busy and could by our driver to these attractions and be our translator and also tell us so much about Costa Rica.
Our thanks to Siney and Garrett for making our trip to Costa Rica so pleasurable and also educating us about the country.

Owner's Response: Hello Mr. and Mrs. G

Thank you so much for the glowing review. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed having all of you. From our daily conversations at the pool to taking you all over Costa Rica it was a pleasure. We also wanted to thank you again for leaving the beds stripped, the towels in the tub, and the house immaculate. For staying with us for 2 weeks we were amazed how clean and tidy you left the house.

If any of you are ever in Costa Rica again, even if you decide not to stay at the property, please email me. We would love to catch up over lunch or dinner.

Wishing you and your family only the best,

Siney C.
