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.

Awesome holiday property

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful mountain retreat! Fantastic view and very clean villa with wonderful gardens. Breakfast with toucans was always a treat. We visited with 13 family and friends.( eight adults and 5 teenagers). The teenagers liked having the 3rd floor loft for their sleeping quarters. Thanks Pablo for arranging top notch excursions (rafting, zip lining, horseback riding to the waterfalls), a shuttle to and from San Jose and rental cars delivered to the villa. Made our holiday hassle free. Pablo helped with shopping, touring and buying the best fireworks display to welcome in the New Year. Any concerns around the villa were quickly addressed by Pablo and staff. Pablo even tracked down a forgotten tablet and Steve is arranging to have it returned to us. Wonderful customer service!

A jungle retreat......starring PABLO.

  • 5 of 5

What you see is what you get....a true jungle retreat. The villa was kept immaculate, Patricia prepared meals like a chef, security was outsanding with someone available on the property at all times, and PABLO. A man who is the pinnacle of tourism. With an update of bedding and some new furniture, the villa would be perfect, but we would have missed the true Costa Rica if we stayed in a resort. Our family is so very thankful that we were able to spend Thanksgiving with the toucans, mountains, waterfalls, monkeys, sloths and the caring people of Costa Rica.

Owner's Response: Hello Marilyn, I am pleased to hear that you had a memorable TG in Costa Rica and enjoyed your stay at Los Aires. Pablo is certainly one of our greatest assets - I will pass along your kind words. I was hoping to get one more season out of the sofas in the great room but it appears that they are due for a recovering sooner than that. I will have the bedding changed out immediately - please let me know which room(s) was inadequate and if it was the mattress/pillows/sheets/blankets. The last time I stayed in the Pasifor suite and slept quite comfortably but I have to admit I have not tried them all in some time! We aim to exceed our guests expectations so I thank you for your valuable input. Pura Vida and Feliz Navidad! Stephen info@LosAiresCR.com or call me at 1.813.784.7930

Amazing...Just like the pictures (maybe better)!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful just as in the pictures. Amazing views of the mountains. It was super spacious the 7 women on our trip. Pablo (the concierge) was beyond amazing and helpful. He will help you every step of the way, no worries. We enjoyed dinner at the house two nights, dinner at an amazing restaurant Ricar 2, and we had a BBQ the last night. ATVs and horseback riding to the waterfall is a must!

I highly recommend hiring Johnny the driver to take you from the airport to the house (its about a 3.5 hour drive from San Jose Airport). We rented a car for the trip, which was super easy. It was delivered and picked up from the house. Just a warning the roads are very rough going into the house and the main roads are small and extremely curvy. At night it gets very foggy and that doesn't help. But overall its a doable drive, just have to get used to it.

Excellent trip...Amazing home!

Great location and service

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Pablo was the best. I have stayed at many villas and resorts, and never received as good as service from any of them as I did from Pablo. The property is a wonderful jungle/mountain getaway with wonderful hikes and waterfalls right on the property. It is only about 30 minutes from the beaches of Dominical, and not too much further from Manuel Antonio. Make sure to go see the swimming hole, and the extreme canyoning near by is a great excursion.

Gorgeous Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Villa with a retreat group from Arizona for a week. The location of the Villa is high up in the rain forest and away from it all. It is perfect for those who want to get away and enjoy the serene beauty of Costa Rica. The breathtaking views are spectacular and the grounds are wonderfully maintained. Our room was perfect and housekeeping cleaned each day for us. Patricia was hired as our breakfast and dinner chef for the week and she did a great job. We had a great time at the Villa, but by far the most memorable part of our trip is Pablo, the concierge. He is phenomenal!!! You just say his name and he appears ready to assist. Our stay at the villa was wonderful!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

It was the most amazing experience. Pablo was very attentive and made sure all of our needs were met. Family of 12, plenty of room and enough activity on property for all to enjoy. The pictures on the Internet are exactly what you see except for work our area has been made into a zen area. Relaxing area for morning coffee away. The swimming hole is also not easily accessible. You need to plan an entire day to go to see it. Enjoyed hiking on property to see the others. Brisk hike in morning. The staff were incredible. Thank you to all. Only recommendation is that Pablo deserves a day off! Definitely will stay there again
