Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a little slice of heaven, this was more than I expected. It was tough to leave this Paradise.

We had a great time / hiking the trails in Manuel Antonio, hiking to the waterfalls { fabulous}, and soaking in the sun in the pool.

Incredible views, loved watching toucans, and always watching for monkeys.



Already planning my return trip to this amazing place! this house is tremendous and Emanuel was awesome!

What a awesome place! no need to set an alarm clock the toucans will take care of that. This relaxing villa is in the jungle 5 stars.

This was the perfect introduction to Costa Rica for our family! I never ceased to be stunned by the setting and views each day. It`s was tough to leave but we can`t wait to return! Pura Vida!

Excellent place, secluded location, lush greenery.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well secluded in a private gated development of an enormous size. As for right now, the other nearest building is 2 kilometers away from the house. The house is an architectural marvel, modern design is well blended into the surroundings. The pool is great, you may enjoy nature viewing right from the water. Bird's life is remarkable here. We also enjoyed watching a sloth traveling through the property for three days. The property manager Oscar is extremely friendly and helpful, he speaks good English and always just a phone call away for help, if needed.

Great Family Stay at Villa Encantada!

  • 5 of 5

3rd trip to CR, and 2nd to the Southern Region of CR was terrific. This Villa is accurately portrayed in its photos and is a great house for anyone, including young kids like ours, to enjoy. While it is a trek from either San Jose or Liberia to get to this region (either plane or we have driven), we have done this twice and it is well worth it if you are looking for luxury, but not in a high rise or resort community manner. The Villa is tucked back in foothills with Ocean views, daily visits from Toucan's/Aracari's/Parrots await. House is in a gated development and well taken care of by Oscar and Paradise Breeze mgmt. We had a terrific chef in Christopher for a few days as well, which I'd recommend to enjoy the evening view and kick back (Closest restaurants/grocery store are less than a 10 min drive). Ballena Bistro for lunch is a must as food is spectacular (south of Uvita). La Parcela a great spot with a view and very close. 4 wheel drive key as most homes are up steep dirt roads and but Villa Encantada not too far off highway (check if you are looking at other homes as some are way up the hills). Activities are endless. We walked the beautiful beaches, snorkeled with reef sharks, jumped off waterfalls, rode horseback, caught a 500lb Black Marlin and two sailfish (all released!)...all in 1 week. And we were just in one small part of this beautiful country.

Luxury Villas tucked away in the Jungle

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Villa Encantada and our 7th at Paradise Breezes. What can I say... we love it there! The accommodations are superb, the staff is attentive and wildlife is truly amazing. If you go in the rainy season and book an extended period of time, it's a good deal too. We've been going to Costa Rica for over 10 years now, on over 15 trips, and I'm so glad Ivannia turned us on to PB.

What made this stay so special is that Carla and I we able to just relax. We've found that we're always playing tour guide for our friends and family when we're down there. This time, we were able to spend a lot of time at the house and observe the wildlife.

This year we had a sloth that appeared in the patio tree on 4 or 5 days and a plethora of frogs, toucans, and araucarias. I was hiking the road frequently (in case you wonder, it's 1.2 miles to the main gates at the highway) and saw quite a few packs of white-faced Monkies on numerous occasions. On a prior stay, we had 100's of parrots in the trees each day. You never know what to expect - every day is an adventure.

The location of PB is ideal, just off the main highway and only 10 minutes from Dominical for restaurants, bars, and of course the beach. Close enough to Manuel Antonio, yet far enough away that you don't feel you're surrounded by thousands of tourists like you do there. One of the reasons Villa Encantada is our favorite is that it's tucked away in the jungle, you literally cannot see another building from anywhere on the property. The sounds of the jungle are amazing, birds, crickets and frogs. So soothing and relaxing - that Pura Vida thing again.

I also surprised Carla for her birthday, with a visit from her daughter Amy. Oscar took care of all the details and made that happen with little effort on my part. We didn't go on many excursions this year but did go on the ATV tour through the mountains over Uvita in the rain and mud. At first, we were not happy campers. But once we stopped for some hot coffee (and had a few sips of the owner's private moonshine), it turned into the highlight of the trip.

If this is your first visit to Costa Rica, I recommend a week on the Pacific Coast and a week in the Arenal area, if you can. Villa Encantada at Paradise Breezes is my first choice. Villa Pacifico is a good 2nd choice with amazing sunset views. In Arenal, I recommend Arenal Springs Resort (not "The Springs").

Beautiful location for a Costa Rican holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa is large and very nicely decorated. The location is perfect for observing jungle life, such as toucans, in the trees right above the pool. The town of Dominical is a very short drive away and we loved the people and energy in the shops, restaurants and guest services. Horse-riding along the river to the waterfall and kayaking through the mangroves were fantastic. The concierge, Oscar, is extremely helpful with questions about the house and will give excellent tips on booking your activities.

Beautiful home in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Villa Encantada. The home is full of anything you will need for a jungle retreat. Beautiful view, full kitchen, towels, poolside rafts and chairs and a lovely staff with Paradise Breeze - Oscar that can get you anything you need. More remote than the hotel heavy areas, this is a more private and relaxed way to experience Costa Rica's central pacific coast. Favorites were the ATV tour, snorkeling catamaran sailing cruise, Manuel Antonio park (get a guide- worth it) After ATV tour- get lunch at Road house- next door- amazing gourmet sandwiches- a big surprise. Happy Lobster was a favorite, as well as PorQue No for views and fish tacos. We had Christopher the chef come 2 nights and the food was amazing- he did cook large quantities so we ended up with 2 nights of left overs- bonus but recommend planning on that. Definitely need 4x4 car! Take that seriously. Great retreat to relax and enjoy the view and sounds of the jungle in between activities. Service is top rate. Thanks for a wonderful family week in the jungle and sunshine!

Amazingly beautiful, Secluded Villa

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a "one of a kind" villa in the rainforest, this is it! The home itself is absolutely beautiful and unique, with portions of the house completely open to the outside. The wifi worked great, as did the washer/dryer. This villa really has all the comforts of home!! You can hear the animals chattering away at night and there is no question that you are far away from home! We were visited by frogs, toads, lizards, birds, insects and coati. The property surrounding the villa is beautiful and so secluded. You have the impression that you are in the middle of nowhere - no other people or homes can be seen or heard. In reality, you are only a short drive to Dominical Beach with tons of restaurants, shops and things to do. Before our arrival, we were contacted by Oscar who was so welcoming and easy to talk to. He answered any and all of our questions and really welcomed us to Costa Rica. He arranged all of our tours and provided us with driving instructions to each location. There was fresh fruit, cereal, coffee and milk ready for us when we arrived. We had a little problem with the air conditioning unit and Oscar arranged to have it fixed within minutes. We did the jungle atv tour, the river rafting trip, and the Cano island snorkling tour. I would absolutely recommend each tour. Every guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. It was obvious that they are so proud of their country and truly love their jobs. I would recommend this villa to anyone coming to Costa Rica. You definitely need an SUV to access this property and the drive to get to the home from the gated entrance to the paradise breezes complex is intimidating, at first. There are a lot of steep turns and inclines on unpaved roads, but as long as you have a 4x4 you will be fine!! We scheduled a massage with Raquel upon our arrival and it was great! She was a great massage therapist and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and able to relax. Highly recommend!!

Dominical
Car: necessary

Dominical - the new hot spot along the central Pacific coast in Costa Rica. Paradise Breezes is just minutes away from zip-lining, surfing, white water rafting, deep sea fishing, diving, horse back ridding, and is surrounded by a stretch of countless beaches all along the coast, each unique in its own way with their own special qualities. At Playa Guapil, which is located directly in front of Paradise Breezes, the beach is a wide secluded beach lined with hundreds of coconut palms. It will give you the feeling of true paradise, very private and very romantic! Playa Dominical, well known as one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica, with lifeguards, restaurants etc., and at Marino Ballena National Park you can swim or wade in the surf, view migrating whales and dolphins, stroll on golden sands, kayak through caves, enjoy a picnic under the the shade of countless coconut palms, or watch the pelicans and water fowl that inhabit the shorelines.A 4x4 vehicle is a must to access the villa and to visit some tours.

Other Activities: Zip lining and access to the best of Costa Rica's adventure activities
