About this listing
With its nearby beach, gorgeous ocean view, upscale amenities, & secluded location; it's no wonder our villa is a TripAdvisor's Top Vacation Rental. Again & again, guests rave about our jungle paradise, and we're sure you'll fall in love with it too.
The spacious poolside terrace is one of the villa's best features. French doors open onto a shaded living area, a separate sun-drenched deck and stunning views of the ocean. With plenty of lounge chairs and natural breezes, it's a restful place to savor your morning coffee, sunbathe, or get caught up in a good book. All the while, you'll be awed by the hummingbirds, Scarlet Macaws, and incredible blue butterflies—just a few of the species that populate the tropical garden and surrounding jungle. When you're ready for a dip, the private pool boasts scenic views of the Whale's Tail and the coastline up to Manuel Antonio National Park. The estate is gated and completely private; there are no neighbors in sight!
This one-story villa has a natural flow to its design, and with three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and an optional fourth bedroom, it provides plenty of space for extended families or several couples. The central dining and living area is flanked by two large bedrooms, including the master bedroom. Both have French doors that open onto the terrace. You're literally steps away from the pool and you can view the ocean from most every room of the house.
The master bedroom is especially luxurious. It boasts views of the ocean and the pool, an en-suite bathroom with an oversized glass block shower, a plush queen-size bed, and a walk-in closet. You'll feel pampered during your stay.
Every detail was considered when designing Villa Mariposa. The villa has teak-beamed cathedral ceilings, custom handmade cedar doors, cabinets and furniture, and a fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen opens onto the outdoor terrace, so you can easily dine alfresco while watching the sunset. The house was built 800 feet above sea level and is cooled by natural breezes. In addition to all this, Villa Mariposa was built in 2009 and retains the look and feel of a brand-new vacation home.
When it comes to location, the villa couldn't be better situated. We're minutes from Ventanas Beach—a virgin strip of palm tree studded sand hidden in a quiet bay. The surrounding cliffs and caverns add to the beauty of the area, and you can walk through the ocean caverns at low tide.

Heather will greet you the villa and is available for any questions you may have. She is here to ensure your stay at our villa is enjoyable and worry-free.
The villa is also minutes from the village of Ojochal, which is renowned in Costa Rica for its international cuisine and world-class dining experiences in the jungle. You will find Canadian, American and European expatriates living there in a cooperative culture with the villagers. We include our restaurant recommendations for some of the best French, Italian, Thai, German, Swiss, Indonesian restaurants on our website and in the villa information binder.
If you're looking for adventure, take a horseback tour through the lush jungle to Nauyaca Falls, where you can swim in the natural pools or jump from the falls. You can also get close to tame toucans and Scarlet Macaws at Don Lulo's home, where the tour stops for a typical Costa Rican fare. It makes for a very memorable photo op!
