The villa has a spectacular view of the Alto Cedral Cloud Forest, which begins on the mountain across from the Villa and continues into Panama. All you view is rainforest and it appears endless. The view to the left looks over the town of Orosi into Tapanti Rainforest. The view to the right looks over the Continental divide at the famed Mountain of Death.

Laundry services are available at reasonable rates. Please download the map to the Villa from our Web Site.

Why visit Orosi? The Orosi Valley is a landscape of topical hues. The rainforest of Tapanti and the Alto Cedral Cloud Forest paint a background of various shades of green, teeming with wildlife. Every turn of the road provides a new diversity of colors and terrain. Located south of Cartago, the Orosi Valley is a true jewel. Famous for its beautiful views, colonial churches, coffee farms, white water rivers, hot springs and Lake Cachí, the Orosi Valley and surrounding towns are like a birthday present, waiting to be opened. The small quaint villages offer a unique location where you can relax and enjoy a real slice of Costa Rican life. During coffee picking season, September through January, the valley comes to life. The pickers can be heard singing and talking in the fields as they pick the worlds best coffee.

It is easy to book activities such as: guided local tours, mountain biking, horse back riding, hiking, water rafting, and other interesting activities to keep active during the day. For detailed information on local tours, visit our web site.

Orosi Valley Self Guided Tours

The Orosi Valley and surrounding areas have many different tours, which can take up to a week to see all of the local attractions. Of the top 20 things to do in Costa Rica, four are in or near the Orosi Valley, numbers six, seven, eight and nine.

We are Steve and Nancy Riley. We purchased this property in 1994 and built our first home in 2004. The villa was built in 2005.

Stephen and Nancy Riley purchased this villa in 1994

Nancy ripped out over 40,000 coffee trees to plant our gardens. The view, location, climate and Costa Rican people made this property our choice for our retirement home.

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing gem! We talked to three travel guides and all three said there is nothing to do in Cartago, and we would be wasting our time visiting this area. If you like busy tours with 20-30 other people crammed on a bus, then this is not the place for you. However, if you like quiet, peace, and a view that will take your breathe away, then this is the place! The owners were very fun and helpful as we explored the area, which by the way, there is a lot to do around Cartago, from Volcanoes, to White Water rafting, you will not be bored. And to boot, the on-property gardens were enough to entertain the eyes for the entire stay.

We have now stayed at about 15 different VRBO homes, and this is by far our top pick!

COMME DANS UN RÊVE

  • 5 of 5
La villa de Nancy et Steve est un bijou serti dans un jardin tropical qui surplombe l'un des plus beaux endroits que nous ayons vu au Costa Rica : la vallée d'Orosi. En regardant depuis le patio les voiles de brumes couvrir et découvrir la montagne, nous nous sentions hors du temps et pouvions presque imaginer les premiers Indiens de la vallée. Nous avons goûté le confort douillet de la maison, le soin apporté au moindre détail, la décoration raffinée et exotique. Nous avions été séduits par les photos que nous avions vues sur le site : elles n'arrivent pas à rendre entièrement justice à la beauté de la maison et de ses environs. Nous avons été extrêmement sensibles à la qualité de l'accueil de Nancy et Steve, nos hôtes constamment prévenants, généreux et discrets, et à leurs attentions renouvelées. Qu'ils soient remerciés pour le merveilleux souvenir que nous emportons d'Orosi.

THE BEST: HOSTS, VILLA, & DOGS

The Best: Hosts, Villa, & Dogs
  • 5 of 5
First of all, it is now a 3-dog option. And, what wonderful dogs - Maggie, Lola, & Stella - especially Maggie who became our "porch puppy" morning & night. We were on a 7 city tour - Steve proclaimed that we had saved the best for last; I believe he was right. Orosi is a sleepy little town (easy to navigate) very near to many amenities with lots of things to do (if you want to ever leave the villa). The villa is a dream, the grounds are wondrous, and the hosts and their dogs are delightful. Steve and Nancy have put mucho grande effort into their little piece of heaven in Costa Rica. My husband & I are hoping to return for future vacations.

STAYING IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been coming to Costa Rica sense 2003 have stayed at many places, by far this is the best place we have been. Steve, Nancy and the "girls" are wonderful hosts.
The cabina is well equipped can sleep 4 in comfort and, it is as close to paradise as you can get. The view is exceptionally beautiful.
The tropical gardens is second to none, heliconia, gingers, bananas, and orchids are at every turn a, horticulturalists dream. If you are a birder this is the place to be. The quite is only broken by the sound of bird songs, and the river down below in the valley. We have already booked our next stay, and looking forward to returning to this little peace of paradise!!

PERFECTION IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
The title should say it all. If you are looking for a romantic getaway you have found it. Seriously stop wasting your time looking for other places, book it now. Words cannot describe Steve and Nancey's beautiful villa and their surrounding gardens. Amazing views, amazing house and amazing hosts. Also because of it's location you can get to a number of interesting places to visit very quickly. Plus Steve and Nancey are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. If you look up the the phrase "gracious host" in the dictionary there will be a picture of them. By the time you leave they will no longer be hosts, they will be FRIENDS. Plus they will can make a few calls and set you up on some awesome rafting trips and zip line tours or draw you a map to the other attractions. Seriously just give them a call, you will see how friendly they are and easy to work with. Thank you Steve and Nancey! We WILL come back as soon as we can. Barney and Tammy Z. OREGON U.S.A.

TRANQUILITY AT ITS FINEST

  • 5 of 5
Such a perfect place (where we stayed 8 days), Nancy and Steve have created a wonderful oasis surrounded by a beautiful lush garden. What a gorgeous view from a hillside perch that the villa sits! Each morning, we were entertained by all the birds and butterflies abound as well as gazing out over the valley, no two days were ever alike. The green season consistently delivered the most beautiful clear mornings each day. The location of the villa was perfect, as it felt so remote and serene, however conveniences and civilization were a short distance away. Our day trips were easily accessible from the villa. The villa itself, was wonderfully decorated, very comfortable bed and equipped with all the accompaniments that you could think of. There is a nice outdoor grilling area that we took advantage of within the gardens. Sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee was the best part of each day at the villa. Nancy and Steve were the perfect hosts and so helpful in so many ways. We look forward to coming back. Angela & Michael
