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

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!

Los Aires is pura vida

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 (5 couples) had wonderful time at Los Aires! We spent 6 nights at the villa. Pablo called us shortly after we landed to make sure we didn't have any questions regarding how to arrive at the property. He called again while we were en route to make sure we were still headed the right direction. He and the staff at the villa were courteous, warm and attentive to every need. Pablo took us to the waterfall (10 min hike) and showed us the varieties of fruits, plants and animals that the villa had to offer. Patricia and her staff made us dinner throughout the week and we all agreed that her meals were our best meals! Pablo made great recommendations for other restaurants and local areas to visit as well as excursions. The villa itself is a beautiful structure with beautiful rooms and accents. During our stay we had a flat tire. Once we returned to the villa, Pablo took the tire to have it repaired for us! Absolutely outstanding vacation experience in a truly beautiful country!

Comfortable jungle living

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say what a great time my family had at Los Aires last week. Every thing was perfect. Pablo assisted us with transfers, vehicle rentals, excursions and still found time to cook great breakfasts. Rigo, Jeffrey, the rest of your staff and Patricia and her crew were excellent in every way imaginable. We recommend Patricia's typical Costa Rican meal of black beans soup and plantains, pork with rice and everyone loved her tres leeches. No one in our party was ready to leave when we had to. It was nice to see that two years since our last visit the place is better than ever. The gardening is such that it brings wildlife to the yard, the pool was clean, so was the hot tub. And the rooms, baths, and common area - spotless. Of all the trips we have taken to the tropics, your place provides guests the most comfortable way of seeing the greatest amount of wildlife. A group, of us - four of my sibs and Brian and I hiked to the swimming hole and I am pretty sure we were not on the right trail. We were like a reality show - Family in the Jungle. Like an Outward Bound excursion - forming a human chain to get over boulders and hoisting and hiking each other up and down. Some of the wildlife sightings we saw on the property included howler monkeys, toucans, mini toucans, parrots, morpho butterflies, crazy fun cool jungle insects including leaf cutter ants...a naturalist's dream One of the most memorable things I have ever done. Yes, we had the time of our lives at your place, again. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We will be back.

Wow!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the way to experience Costa Rica! The house and property are awesome! The staff and especially Pablo are very helpful. Pablo guided us on where to go, the best restaurants, sites, and even guided us through Manuel Antonio. That along with cooking a fabulous breakfast each morning made this trip great. Overall Pablo did a great job and I highly recommend this villa for your stay. It is worth the drive through the mountains to stay here. We will be back.

Awesome property, luxury resort-like vacation

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with a group of 14 and we all were treated with great respect and our comfort was most important to the staff. The house feels like a high-end resort without the crowds and chaos. We loved the pool, outdoor living space, media room (for our sunburned kids), multiple seating options, showers in each room, hot tub, on-property fruit trees, homemade breakfasts, and daily housekeeping service. We felt like fancy famous people when we're just like you, normal everyday folks. Pablo, the property manager and go-to guy, helped us arrange excursions, made us breakfast, acted as tour guide on the property and around Dominical, and made sure we had everything we didn't even know we wanted. We highly recommend this property. Tell Pablo we said "Pura Vida!"

Wonderful Family Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 traveled with my parents (in their seventies) and my brother's family of 4 to Villa Los Aires for a fun-filled week of family time. We were celebrating the 50th anniversary of our parents and had an absolute blast! The staff here was amazing, Sylvia, Rico and especially Pablo were all friendly, helpful and just overall great. We stayed at the house almost the whole time, with just two excursions planned and we had a wonderful family filled time. The kiddos aged 13-6 had pool time galore, we watched a movie in the theater room almost daily, explored the waterfalls and rivers on the land and had Patricia and her crew come in and make 2 fantastic meals for us for special occasions. I would caution that because there are no banisters at the house the stairs and even the pool posed a challenge for the eldest among us, but that did not detract from our overall enjoyment. Pablo was helpful, sweet and made our vacation so easy from before hand planning to the actual event. I think we were a little different as far as visitors go because we were not a travel group set on adventure and instead stayed close to home and because of that we had a lot of interaction with all the staff and they were all really great. We did take part of one day to do the horseback ride to the Nayaca falls and you've got to do that! It was amazing! I highly recommend this home. It was a trip of a lifetime for us!
