If you're visiting Costa Rica and intending to get away from it all, and explore the natural beauty of this country in an atmosphere that hasn't been overwhelmed by the tourist industry. This is the place. Located about 3km on off the main road on a dirt road, lies your villa complete with kitchen, sitting room, and extremely comfortable bedroom.... More

This place is unbelievable. We stayed for 5 nights in February. The 1st 4 we were in the 1-bedroom villa and had to move to the two bedroom for the last night because the one bedroom was booked. I can't say enough about these accomodations...they are beautifully decorated and have everything you could possibly need and if there is something... More

I would like to thank Paul and Sarah for their incredible hospitality during our stay at Villas De Las Aves. Like so many other guests at the Villas it was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. We stayed for two nights and spent the entire flight home talking about how next time we would stay for at least... More

Every now than then we travel to a resort that far exceeds our expectations, such as in the case at Villas del las Aves. Traveling in Costa Rica over the past four years we have learned not to be surprised, but was delighted to find this charming resort 2km up the Uvita River. The villas located on the hill overlooking... More

My wife and I just returned from Costa Rica, after what might have been the perfect vacation. Villas de las Aves was a big part of that. We came across the website and fell in love with the place, and it was even better in person. Sarah and Paul are incredibly nice, and went out of their way to make... More

There aren't enough superlatives to describe our stay at this great little getaway in the hills above Uvita Beach in Costa Rica. My wife and I had been wanting to try this place. One of the owners (Sarah) is a Cordon Bleu chef and we wanted to try the restaurant. This little gem was so relaxing. Great little pool. Each... More

I just want to start out by saying that this is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Although it is a little hard to get to, it is worth it in every way. The drive up to Villas de las Aves, alone, tells you how extraordinary this place must be. Once you get there, the scenery is... More

Our visit to the “Chef’s Table” –gourmet restaurant located on the premises of Villa de las Aves -- left us speechless and wanting more! Sarah and Paul are the most hospitable hosts – they make you feel very welcome and special. The meal was out of this world… Sarah definitely knows what she is doing. Although we did not stay...
