Although our villa is within walking distance from many restaurants and shops, our location is very private. The villa cannot be seen from any road or other property.
For this reason we have created a very detailed webpage with our GPS coordinates, aerial pictures, text description how to reach us from

Thanks to our very private location, our villa is one of the safest locations in our area, and we never had any burglary since we bought the villa early 1999.
Other Things to Note

When you leave your room, please turn off the lights, fans and air-conditioning.
Don't touch, chase, harass or kill the monkeys, sloths, frogs and other animals, big and small, who regularly visit our villa and the pool area.
Our animals incl. bugs sometimes behave like humans: they take a wrong exit and end up in the wrong place.
Please contact our staff whenever you see any animal in an unwanted place.
Our staff will take the animal and place them back in the jungle where they belong.
The Jungle Villa property is full of animals, only because the villa's owners and staff protect all of them !!

It's not allowed to walk on the walls surrounding our top pool and center pool. It's important parents tell this to their children too.
Please take first a shower before entering our pools after returning from the beach.
Staying at the jungle villa was a very beautiful, unique experience. Through the course of the weekend we coexisted with many many animals. We wished we had our families there with us, as there was a lot of room to accommodate lots of people. I suggest thoroughly reading all of the information that the host provides! This isn't the hotel like stay that some Air Bnb users appear to provide. This villa is for the nature lovers, those who meeting and hearing monkeys, frogs, birds, etc. Ad helped us navigate the area with ease, and mentioned the Saturday morning farmers market in Quepos, where we got delicious fresh food to cook at the villa. There is also a small supermarket close by, along with numerous restaurants. We took the Tracopa bus from San Jose, and the driver was nice enough to stop very close to the villa. The public bus runs every 15 minutes, so it's very easy to get to Quepos, the beach, or a restaurant. It only costs 315 colones. We are very glad that Ad is the owner of the jungle villa, as he does a fantastic job balancing the demands of human life with preservation of the natural. Hot water heated by solar panel, particular pH balance of the pool, etc.
De junglevilla is gelegen in de buurt van een paradijselijk mooi nationaal park (San Manuel Antonio). De villa zelf is enigszins gedateerd maar het uitzicht, de zwembaden en het regelmatige gezelschap van de 'huis'monkeys maakt heel veel goed evenals de aanwezigheid van een super heerlijke restaurantje op loopafstand (cafe Milagro). Jammer genoeg was de eigenaar niet aanwezig maar we zijn goed opgevangen door zijn personeel. Alles is prima bereikbaar met het openbaar vervoer.

About the Host, Ad
I bought this beautiful Jungle Villa early 1999. Originally it was built as a restaurant with 3 pools for a nearby hotel. It's was converted into a private residence in 1999. Guests have given the house many different names like Monkey House, Noah's Ark, etc. but we simply call it the Jungle Villa, a villa embedded in the jungle. If you come to Costa Rica for its nature and animals, this villa is your best choice. As hundreds of guests said already: whenever you enter our property gate, you enter a completely different world. A world with a relaxed atmosphere, sounds of the nature, animals and jungle. A world far away from everydays world. Just relax and enjoy it.
