OUR MOTTO ~The privacy you want - The service you need ~ LOCATION We are 15 minutes outside of the bustling town of La Fortuna, ranked #1 in the world for experiential travel. IDEAL COMBINATION Spend your days on outdoor adventure tours in Fortuna/Arenal and return to the Villa in the evening for rest, relaxation and good times with your family or group. Whether by day or evening, the Villa is all yours during your stay. We are visited by over 60 species of birds during the migration period, a veritable bird sanctuary. You are close to all of the outdoor adventure attractions and hot springs, yet you have a private place to enjoy and retire whenever you like. Our guests find this to be the ideal combination. Take a relaxing day at the Villa to soak in the pool, explore the tropical garden and read in the outdoor living room. THE POOL One guest recently wrote (August, 2018): “The nicest pool water I have ever swam in!' - Robin M. (Baltimore, Maryland) GAME ROOM On-site, you will find a game-room equipped with an official pool table & dart-board, a mini-bar & a mini-fridge. We also have horseshoes next to the Villa Hermosa, on the lawn area. TEMPERATURE The temperature here is just about always 73-77 degrees, you will never feel cold AND you will never feel too hot or muggy. We have outdoor fans to complement the outdoor bbq, kitchen and living room. The bedroom is equipped with A/C. You will not need A/C in the Villa Toucan which has an open floor plan and windows (with screens to prevent any insects from entering). NAVIGATION We have 2 newly paved roads on the way to the property; one is between La Fortuna and The Springs Resort & Spa, the other runs from La Fortuna to the town of Monterrey and directly to the Villa. LOGISTICS Once you have booked we can arrange your transportation (shuttle-van driver from the airport or previous hotel AND rental car) as well as outdoor adventure tours. We can also help you to navigate our area which will come in handy when going on tours, hiking near the volcano, exploring waterfalls etc. PROPERTY MANAGEMENT We have a property manager who lives on site and is available during your stay to insure that everything goes smoothly. MEANINGFUL VACATION TIME Whether bonding with family (nuclear or multi-generational) or taking a romantic excursion, the Villa never ceases to 'wow' and amaze guests with its breath-taking beauty and serene surroundings.
