Our party of 8 had a great stay here. Lots of room and comfort. We made good use of the pool and deck. Very Clean and well maintained. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful. While staying there we a boat trip to Corcovado - wonderful and several of our part went zip-lining at Baru. The birding was excellent.

My husband and I stayed at Villa Paloma for 2 nights in February, 2011. The villa is charming. Sarah and Paul went out of their way to make our visit special. They have built beautiful villas which are quite unique. There were all sorts of lovely little touches, including champagne in the fridge when we arrived. The jacuzzi is a... More

We are very happy with our spontaneous decision to stay here. We had spent 2 weeks up in dusty Santa Teresa/Mal Pais and needed to breathe some fresh air and see some wildlife. Found this place on trip advisor and we're very happy we did. Only spent 2 nights in Villa La Paloma, but it was spotless clean (unlike our... More

We were not disappointed. We have stayed in both the villas and loved them both. Sarah has a great eye for decor.They are equipped with... More

Hard to find enough superlatives to describe our stay at villas de las aves. Wonderful hosts, fantastic location, great decor (we stayed in the Villa Paloma), stunning scenery, superb cooking. Was hard to drag ourselves away from the bird watching to visit other locations, but definitely worth walking some of the nearby beaches, doing the snorkeling trip to Cano Island,... More

Villa de las Aves is a perfect place to stay if you have several days in Uvita. It is quiet, private and situated on a beautiful piece of property. The kitchen was great so that we could cook our own breakfast and coffee. We were able to walk to a nearby waterfall and swim, as well as use Villa as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Manoas (Formerly Villas De Las Aves) has undergone an extensive renovation. We now offer a large 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom house with gourmet kitchen, laundry room with washer & dryer, lounge/TV area and open air dining area all overlooking the river. We also offer both one bedroom & 2 Bedroom villas with kitchen, lounge, TV, washer & dryer, private jacuzzi and sundeck. All villas are fully air conditioned and close to the pool. WiFi is available throughout the property. Private parking is located right next to each house. Staff are onsite. ***A new addition to the property, are 4 luxury Safari tents. Each tent is complete with a luxurious King sized bed, full bathroom, and viewing deck with lounge chairs and shade umbrella. The camping tents offer an accommodation that is just as comfortable as the villas, but brings you a step closer to the jungle around you. ... more   less
