Originally from Northern California, I am happy to call Costa Rica my home since 2005. I love playing music, traveling, surfing, rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and most anything outdoors.

What a wonderful place. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The pool was amazing and the wildlife was beautiful! Price was right. Would love to stay there again!
Unfortunately we didn't make it to the Waterfall Villa Jungle Retreat due to travel complications so are unable to review the facilities. Chris was really informative and helped us by providing directions in advance and was very quick to respond to any of our messages.
AMAZING! ONE OF A KIND! BEST SLEEP I'VE HAD IN YEARS! this home was beautiful! Private waterfall was once in a life time! Host was perfect, home was clean, everything exceeded our expectations.
We had a very nice stay with the waterfall sound in background.
The jungle Villa was amazing and beautiful, from the private waterfall to the secluded jungle surroundings with only the sound of Costa Rica around you. It was very private and well cared for. My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Villa and had fun exploring the surrounding area. There is lots to do and see including waterfalls, pristine beaches , and Dominical for eating plus nightlife. The restaurant at the end of the road ‘Él Chicote’,was a great local establishment with delicious food and the owner was very friendly. I would recommend the Jungle Villa for someone who wants privacy with lots of nature yet close to town and beaches. Exceeded our expectations. Thank you!
Finding the Jungle retreat was very easy. Chris's direction were very easy to follow. Although Chris wasn't there himself, Keistan (Property Manager) was very helpful as well. There were a few issues when we got there, but after mentioning them, they were taken care of right away.
The Villa itself was beautiful. Really tucked away in the jungle. There were a lot of stairs to get to it, so prepare yourself. Very easy to sleep at night with nice temperatures and the sound of your private waterfall next to the villa.
Overall, we would recommend this place to all who like camping with a little more.
The villa was lovely. It was a great value for the money, and was one of the nicer places we stayed in Costa Rica. We loved having the private pool. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed walking to the "neighborhood" waterfall. There was a small snafu with check-in, but it wasn't a big deal and both the owner/host and the on-site property manager were extremely apologetic. Chris was very friendly and always very quick to respond in all of our communications.
What I didn't realize from the description on AirBnB was that it's essentially a duplex...even though the two villas don't share a wall, they're really close together. It was still very private as there is a concrete wall separating the two patio areas. It wasn't a problem for us, but just thought other potential guests might like to know. Our neighbors were a quiet family. The internet was pretty slow, even compared to other places in Costa Rica...maybe this is because it was the busy season. Again, not a problem for us since we weren't working, but it would've been very hard to do anything more than send a simple email.
Overall we had a wonderful experience...the valley and views are beautiful and we enjoyed the sunsets and wildlife. I would recommend this villa to a friend for sure.
Just returned from my trip to Costa Rica - I stayed in the Waterfall Villa for the first 2 days of my trip, and it was beautiful. You are completely immersed in the jungle and have a private waterfall right outside your door! This accommodation may not be for everyone, but if you're looking to be completely surrounded by nature, this is the spot for you!
The villa is protected by mosquito netting, but don't be surprised if some critters make there way through. Although Chris was absent for my stay, he was still very helpful in answering all of my questions. The only suggestion I have would be to put another sign indicating Cascada Azul, because we would have never found it without help from locals. Overall, beautiful place, helpful host and definitely a stay to remember!
The reservation was canceled 53 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Chris was an amazingly helpful host who went out of his way to help me with everything from getting into town to lugging my many suitcases around. He made me feel very welcome and comfortable and was quick to respond to any issues that emerged. The villa itself is well maintained with absolutely stunning views of the surrounding rainforest. I would return in a heartbeat!
Chris Deming is a great human being! He is kind, trustworthy, funny, helpful, and a talented musician. He has always been this way, and I expect that he always will be. He can stay at my AirBNB anytime he wants to come to California. Chris is awesome.
