Welcome to the "Jungle Villa", it is located on a hillside over looking a lush green valley and the beautiful Pacific ocean below with it's wonderful sunsets. Our villa is very private and secure with a gated entrance and yet it is less than a 10 minute walk to town.
The Jungle Villa is our largest 1 bedroom apartment. It is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment, with living room, kitchen and outside porch. The bedroom and bath are air conditioned for your sleeping comfort, while the living room and kitchen are cooled by the ocean breezes and ceiling fans. The living room and kitchen are screened in on 3 sides with wrap around windows and it is the perfect place to sit and listen to the birds, or watch the monkeys and iguanas that often visit just outside your windows. With a step outside to the front porch, you can sit down and relax and enjoy the ocean views and the most amazing sunsets.
Enjoy the pool and rancho as you relax at the property, or take a short walk to central Quepos where you will find local restaurants, shopping, live music and more. It's also a short walk to the marina and our newest park, where you can watch the local fishing and tour boats going in and out. You can visit our local farmers market every Friday and Saturday in front of our new marina. There you can try some of our unique fruits and sample home baked pastries, it's only a 5 minute walk from the villa.
If you would like our help arranging any of your tours such as, white water rafting, canopy tours, sunset cruises world class sport fishing and more please let us know.
We can also provide private transportation from San Jose to Quepos. Come stay with us and enjoy the beautiful beaches and the Pura Vida life!!

We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica. Marta and Douglas were great hosts...very helpful and kind. Definitely a good first experience using airbnb. The room was just like you see in the pictures, the location was good--within walking distance to local shops and the bus stop to take you to the beach! Hopefully we will get the chance to go back :) Thanks again Marta and Doug!
Wow, what a fantastic place!
Absolutely stunning view from the deck or the pool (which we soaked in for hours a day). All the reviews are dead on -- monkeys galore, plus we also saw iguanas and a toucan right from our room.
Well-equipped, cookable kitchen, comfy bed, plenty of space. You'll be absolutely surrounded by jungle sounds at night and in the morning. What a great place.
It's a 10-12 minute walk into downtown Quepos, slightly more on the way back because it's a steep climb (but worth it). We enjoyed being near Quepos and not on the much more touristy road to Manuel Antonio.
Marta and her family and crew were wonderful hosts, ready to answer any question or solve any problem.
Marta and Douglas were such wonderful hosts! They truly made us feel at home and very welcomed. The villa we stayed in was very clean, spacious, and had INCREDIBLE views. I can't recommend their home enough. Mucho gracias Marta y Douglas!!!!
+ monkeys are passing by every day
+ you see more animals (iguanas, birds, monkeys) as in Manuel Antonio, at least the capuccine monkeys are less aggressive
+ awesome view at marina and the ocean even from inside the pool
+ great balcony in front of the room with ocean view as well
+ rooms are big and clean enough
+ Douglas and Marta are friendly hosts
- challenge to find by night
- 2 big dogs (one pitbull) are with your stay (they are relaxed and you can pet them - but you know, you never know...)
- toilet flash isn't workin really
Staying in the jungle villa was a pleasure and Marta & Douglas were wonderful hosts - warm and welcoming. The apartment was clean and roomy and the rancho/pool area was a fabulous communal space to relax in after a busy day of exploring the fabulous surroundings. Would definitely recommend!
Marta was a really great host! Quick to offer help with anything I needed and super helpful. The room was really really nice. With the bedroom/bathroom being a separate area so you could keep that area air conditioned. The kitchen/dining room/living area was just screens from everything above waist high so you could sit and listen to the hum of the wildlife. Best of both worlds!
Douglas and Marta were wonderful hosts and lovely people. They made us feel at home straight away, even picking us up from the bus station in Quepos on our arrival and showing us around the local area. The apartment we stayed in was clean and well equipped. And the view from the balcony at all times of the day (but particularly at sunset) was really very special and something we will never forget. Quepos and Manuel Antonio were definitely highlights of our two-week trip around Costa Rica - the people are very friendly and the beaches in and around Manuel Antonio National Park are paradise! Overall we loved our time with Douglas and Marta and would certainly stay there again! Pura Vida!
We recently stayed at the Jungle Villa and had a great experience. Both Marta and Douglas were very helpful and accommodating during our stay. The view of the marina was amazing and we even got to see monkeys and lizards running through the trees. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Perfect place for a trip in the surroundings of Quepos!
Five star Airbnb-Host - this is what I found within Marta and Douglas.
Everything you need - Marta can fix it. She picked me up from the bus terminal and gave me a short overview to the town so I could easily manage everything I like to do there. And if there has been something I needed, she helped me out with tour tips, cheap laundry in her place and the perfect "afternoon beer" and little meals.
I really appreciate what the two of them are doing: Spending their heart and time in a nice place over the marina of Quepos. Perfect sunsets, colorful birds and funny monkeys - everything just a hand away. If I return to Costa Rica - which is what I like to do - I truly have this place on my list.
My apartment was perfect with a kitchen equipped with anything I needed. spacious room with air condition and a fan and an enormous bathroom with a yakuzy. Overwhelming ;) Pura vida - that was what I found. I am thankful and relaxed and full of impressions - like I hoped I will be before returning to my home country.
The view... the birds...the monkeys...our hosts Douglas and Marta were our family instantly. Their place is tucked away into the side of the hill over -looking a spectacular view of the Pacific and OH! what a sunset. If you enjoy sitting on your own private balcony, sipping your favorite frosty beverage,watching nature open your eyes to its peace and perfection, this is the place for you.
My husband and I stayed at "Jungle Villa" for one week ( not long enough ) and experienced a true Costa Rican vacation. Shopping at the Saturday market, ziplining ,ATV adventures, and horseback riding through the rainforest to top it off- finally jumping into the most pristine waterfalls. Natural Costa Rica Massage is what the locals call it.. The activities are great but spending time with Marta and Douglas is what we enjoyed the most. They picked us up, showed us around and did I mention what a great chef - Douglas is.... We shall return again because I believe at Jungle Viila when Marta says "Mi casa su casa..." She truly means it.. XXOO Charles and Tierni
