Overview
Villa -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7
La Fortuna de San Carlos, Arenal Volcano National Park, Province of Alajuela
The Villa looks out on horse pastures and misty mountains. Fresh soft breezes cool the generous kitchen/dining area. Lush gardens are all around you, emitting night scents and day scents that leave you smiling. Pick fresh fruit from the citric orchard and squeeze your breakfast juice. All the soft noises of animals -- from toucans to horse hooves, the water buffalo’s soft braying, and the baaa of sheep remind you that you are connected to the earth, the soil, the farm.

You are as quiet and private and isolated as you want. Or wander down to the stables - play with the pets, feed some animals, or watch the horses in training. Horses are available for riding (additional cost). The ATV's are fun, too. And if you wish to see the world from above, we operate the only hot air balloon in Central America.

We arrived at Esteban's villa with no definitive plans and within 30 minutes he had helped to outline our entire stay. He made numerous recommendations for activities, dining and timing of outings and each recommendation was pure gold. It started when I called to book the villa and he helped me book a rental car for the trip. He recommended...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in July 2016

It was clear from my first conversations and emails with Esteban his one goal was to provide my family a stress free, one of a kind vacation. He did that in spades. From saving us hundreds of dollars on our car rental (do not book one without talking to him first!) to the impeccable accommodations, the picturesque setting, and the...

We stayed in Villa Heliconias on the ranch for the first half of our Costa Rican vacation. The beauty and solitude of this place are really unparalleled and we cannot recommend it more highly. Our family prefers to"get away from it all", rather than to vacation with the masses at a resort. This was probably the best example of luxury...
