If I could, I’d give this entire experience 6 stars. The property is the most gorgeous home I’ve ever seen. The concierge is out of this world amazing. It’s safe, easy to get to, and actual paradise. If you’re looking for relaxation and luxury, this is the home to do it. If you’re looking for adventure and excitement, the concierge has you covered. The Home The property is located at the very end of the street and has a parking space for 3 cars. It doesn’t look like much from the outside but once you open the doors and step inside, you’ll be in awe. The panoramic views of all glass walls everywhere, the gorgeous floors, the blue pool, the wet bar, the large kitchen, the large living room, the sky light, the porch. It all looks out onto the most beautiful rainforest, valley, and mountains of thick green and yellow trees. Some were even flowering purple! We saw so many toucans, monkeys, and animals we couldn’t identify. Just sitting outside here is all you’d ever need to be happy. I promise. But, if you want more, head downstairs to find 4 gorgeous, massive bedrooms with insane views and large bathrooms. Everything was spotless and stunning. The begs were so comfortable, the pillows were fabulous, and the blankets were nice and warm. One more flight down and you’ve got your own washer and drier and spare fridge. Basically, this large home is my dream home. And it’ll be yours too. The Host If the house itself isn’t enough for you, you’re in luck! You will be connected with a concierge for your trip. We had Mefi who was a gem. This incredible liaison will literally ALWAYS be available. You can email or text them and they will get back to you immediately, about ANYTHING. If someone in town is charging you $X for something and it seems too high, text your concierge for further information. If you are in the mood for some good food but don’t know what to eat, text your concierge. If a guy trying to sell you things tells you a beach is closed, text your concierge (who will tell you the truth). They begin by sending you a lovely introductory email with information about the house, about what to expect from Costa Rica (from buying your flights to heading home), a menu for food if you choose to have a chef come to the house and cook your meals, and an extensive and detailed list of activities with information on each tour. You’d think these would be stock messages, impersonal, formal, and strictly professional. Nope. You get a real human being who deeply cares about making your trip the very best it can be. To plan an adventure, you simply let your concierge know what tours you want to do at what date/ time and they book it for you. All that’s left for you to do is relax by the pool until the tour bus shows up outside your villa and whisks you away on an incredible adventure. All of their tours are amazing! They select only the best tour companies to work with and take pride in the time spent to select these companies. Yes, you read the previous statements correctly: you can have your own private chef come and cook every single one of your meals if you wish. Plus they clean up afterwards. We traveled with vegetarians and picky 11 year olds and everyone was into our chef’s food. Ultimately, this has been the best Airbnb experience I’ve ever had so far. The hospitality, information, responsiveness, property, cleanliness, space, views... everything was 100% perfect. Do yourself a favor... treat yourself to this incredible experience.”
Villa Joya exceeded all of our expectations! Beautiful place, great location, and amazing hospitality! Would love to return.
Villa Joya is an absolutely incredible home and I highly recommend it to all. The house is absolutely stunning, comfortable, full of natural light, and easy to access by car. We all enjoyed our stay very much. Communication was a breeze and any question we had was answered immediately. I would book this house 1000 times more
The wonderful house lived up to and exceeded all of our expectations, everything was just as the photos portrayed, or better. Many thanks to Mefi, Pablo and all who made the reservation, check-in & out, and the whole experience so easy and relaxing, our whole family of 8 adults thoroughly enjoyed our time there, and were able to relax and take some well-deserved time off. The views of the forest around the house are lush and offer great opportunities for wildlife viewing.
Villa Joya is absolutely beautiful and waking up to that view was incredible. The road getting to the house was a bit rough, the first night, our van could not make it up that steep hill and some passengers had to get out of the van. The house was equipped with kitchen amenities that allowed us to cook meals and save some money. We all enjoyed the house and allowed us to spend some time together as a family in a safe and enjoyable environment. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone going to Costa Rica. The house is in a perfect location because there are many restaurants nearby to try and Manuel Antonio National Park is about 12 minutes away with many souvenir gift shops. Definitely a 5-star rating!
Brenda we highly appreciate your feedback and thank you very much for staying with us. Hope to have you again in the future.
Amazing place, beautiful views from every corner of the house. Nature at its best, we saw toucans, beautiful and colorful parrots ( Lapas ) and a lot of other smaller birds that woke us up in the morning with their songs. The place was so beautiful and peaceful we didn't want to leave.
Dear Flory, thank you very much for staying with us, we are so happy you had a great time at our villa. Hope to see you soon in the future!
Eleven members of our family went on this trip. We all highly recommend Villa Joya. It is a beautiful modern house and well cared for. We all agreed that if we didn’t have work to come back to we would have loved to stay there all summer. If you have never been to Costa Rica, this would be a wonderful place to start.
We were 2 families with children staying at Villa Joya. The villa was very clean and comfortable, the house manager and Concierge were very helpful. Great location.
We loved staying at this house. The views where amazing. The cook that was provided was 5 stars every meal was amazing. Thomas coordinated all our excursions and made sure everything was smooth. We really enjoyed our time at Villa Joya.
Villa Joya is spacious and beautiful and make you feel like home!
The surrounding are just incredible and Thomas was a great help getting around
We love Cafe Milagro, really nice people, excellent service, the best coffee in town and good food!
