Property description

Million dollar view, mountain, rain forest, garden villa! $65 per night or $400 per week or $1500 per month for the months of December through May. For a monthly rental, we rent our Villa and Land Cruiser for $3000 per month, all car insurances included. NO EXTRA CHARGES!

Let Paradise Peak be your vacation within a vacation where everyday is 74º F and every night is 60º F (plus or minus 7º F). That’s everyday of the year, the most perfect temperature range on earth!

Our property caters to gardeners, nature lovers, birdwatchers, artists, writers and people who appreciate a stress free, tranquil setting. The rental Villa has the most comfortable king-size mattress in Costa Rica! The second bedroom loft has two twin beds and private upstairs patio.

The villa sits in a working citrus farm and is surrounded by a private eleven-acre botanical garden. This two-bedroom Balinese style Villa has a kitchenette and outdoor Jacuzzi. All artwork and decorative items were purchased during travels in Indonesia, Thailand, China, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Central America. The villa has a spectacular view of the Alto Cedral Cloud Forest, which begins on the mountain across from the Villa and continues into Panama. All you view is rainforest and it appears endless. The view to the left looks over the town of Orosi into Tapanti Rainforest. The view to the right looks over the Continental divide at the famed Mountain of Death.

Laundry services are available at reasonable rates. Please download the map to the Villa from our Web Site.

About the owners: We, Steve and Nancy Riley, recently built the rental Villa, which rests 25 yards from our home. We also provide real estate services for those wishing to retire in a living Eden, home construction services and landscaping services. Visit our web site for more details.

Why visit Orosi? The Orosi Valley is a landscape of topical hues. The rainforest of Tapanti and the Alto Cedral Cloud Forest paint a background of various shades of green, teeming with wildlife. Every turn of the road provides a new diversity of colors and terrain. Located south of Cartago, the Orosi Valley is a true jewel. Famous for its beautiful views, colonial churches, coffee farms, white water rivers, hot springs and Lake Cachí, the Orosi Valley and surrounding towns are like a birthday present, waiting to be opened. The small quaint villages offer a unique location where you can relax and enjoy a real slice of Costa Rican life. During coffee picking season, September through January, the valley comes to life. The pickers can be heard singing and talking in the fields as they pick the worlds best coffee.

It is easy to book activities such as: guided local tours, mountain biking, horse back riding, hiking, water rafting, and other interesting activities to keep active during the day. For detailed information on local tours, visit our web site.

Orosi Valley Self Guided Tours
The Orosi Valley and surrounding areas have many different tours, which can take up to a week to see all of the local attractions. Of the top 20 things to do in Costa Rica, four are in or near the Orosi Valley, numbers six, seven, eight and nine.
