This one-of-a-kind wooden house is the essence of tropical living. Surrounded by 4 acres of private property, it is a perfect place to decompress when you first arrive in Costa Rica, or just before you go home. 30 minutes to airport.
“Al's place was absolutely gorgeous and clean. The place had a bit of a tree-house feel but a lot more luxurious. Al was incredibly friendly and had a great spirit! He was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. He recommended some fun activities we could do and a great breakfast spot not too far from the airbnb. I highly recommend staying at this place it is so incredibly unique! I definitely plan on going back!”
Enjoy your stay in Costa Rica how it should be! Nestled in the lush jungle, with wildlife close to reach, in total peace and harmony with nature!
“My girlfriend and I stayed here during the rainy season and it was amazing! We had some time to enjoy the rain in the terrace in the jungle next to the top of the trees, and we really had a great time. We also enjoyed by the pool when it was sunny. At the terrace we saw a sloth like 10 mts away, right in front of us on the "guarumo" tree. Although we're from Costa Rica, this was the closest that we had ever seen a sloth! We also saw monkeys and lots of birds. The sounds of nature are amazing here. We also went for a walk and got to a beach where there was just a few people since it's in the middle of the mountain and you can only get there walking. We definitely want to get back so if you're looking for a peaceful place to be in the middle of the jungle... stay here! :-)”
Located in Costa Rica’s Southern Pacific Zone, La Luz sits atop a mountain overlooking the stunning Baru River Valley. The property sits on 12 acres in the gated community of Valle de los Caballos- surrounded by sweeping vista views, bamboo lined drives, waterfalls, and a jungle that‘s home to the wildest flora and fauna of the area.
“La luz, as my favorite Airbnb experience, reminds me everything I like about Airbnb. I am having trouble putting into words just how beautiful La Luz truly once you see it is in person. As soon as you arrive, it becomes obvious that this Airbnb was the owners labor of love - every design detail intentional, all of his decorations serve a purpose. Aaron really cares about his guests, I can tell from the first message he send to the last, from everything he picked for the home,from a piece of art, to utensils, to cook wares, to the mattress, to the lights, to every piece of the furniture...It speaks to the type of person Aaron is, kind, tasteful, passionate, detail oriented... His place is remote and private, offering tranquility and the feeling that time has slowed down. There are fruit growing in the front yard, toucan flying through the trees. Beautiful butterfly hanging around all the time. Not only I appreciate all the beauty La luz has provided us, also the beauty of interaction with beautiful human. The property manager Chandra, she is such a care, loving, sweet, wise, cool, fun, amazing work being. We will never forget the time we spend with her. She invited us twice to her beautiful balcony, we sit there in front of the epic view of the valley, talking about her travel stories, our exploration, all the stories and thoughts regards to love... The second time she invited us to dance with her, we played our music and she is able to dance with any kinds of music. She was very patient and nice to teach me some balinese dance...The time we spent with Chandra was just simply inspiring, peaceful, beautiful and meaningful. Our experience in CR would not have been as immersive or special without Chandra’s guidance and hospitality. All in all, both the host and house exceeded our expectations in every way. We are so grateful we landed where we did with La luz. It inspired what do I want my future home to be. We will definitely miss Chandra and La Luz, so we will definitely be going back.”
