Experience the best of Costa Rica in your own private jungle villa tucked away high in the mountains but close to many tropical beaches. Choose from our 6 unique, fully equipped villas that offer everything you need to enjoy a comfortable and personalized stay in paradise. Our riverside property is nestled in the heart of a diverse secondary jungle where you will take in the sounds of the river flowing, the howler monkeys howling high in the trees and the toucans calling out to one another. Immerse yourself in nature alongside beautiful green mountains, privately secluded but conveniently only minutes away from the many beautiful pacific coast beaches, and five star restaurants. Soak up the sun or take a dip in our large fresh salt water pool. Make your way under our cascading waterfall and into the grotto (underwater cave), or sip on a cocktail or margarita at our swim up bar. Work comfortably with fast wifi from our remote spaces. Take advantage of our private or group yoga classes held atop our beautiful yoga deck overlooking the pool. Deepen your spiritual senses with a reiki session with a certified reiki practitioner. Relax with a deep massage from our certified therapist. Be creative in your private kitchen and dine on fresh fish, seasonal vegetables and freshly baked bread from local fisherman, farmers and bakers. For a special treat or romantic getaway, have happy hour or a private elegant dinner on a private deck overlooking the pacific ocean. Come experience the mountain town of Ojochal, which has been properly named the secret “hidden gem” of Costa Rica. Also, known as the culinary capital because of the multitude of restaurants featuring international cuisine and local flare. When you are ready to go out and explore the wonders of the Osa region, your private concierge will be at your service with endless options for all that Costa Rica has to offer. We will take care of your every need from restaurant reservations to booking your tours and activities. Don’t worry about a thing, we’ve got you!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great place to stay would recommend a try. Villas are so family friendly with a relaxing pool with a hang out area! Also very close to a huge selection of beaches with lots of activities nearby. In love, can’t wait to go again!

Property's Favourite Review
Scarlett Villas is a hidden gem! We stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. We loved the property and visiting the local area. The property has been renovated over the last few years and it looks wonderful! The owner has made upgrades such as a outdoor yoga deck, outdoor workspaces, a games area and a lounge nestled in a heavily treed area with water running close by. The pool is located in a beautiful setting with evening lighting, gazebo and lounge chairs on the deck. The pool is well kept and clean. The villas are nicely updated and clean, with outdoor patios and kitchens. All the staff are excellent, in particular Casey (owner), Helder (manager), Kenneth and Carlos are extremely friendly and always offering to help you in any way they can. Helder is always available to answer questions, help with information on local attractions and address any concerns. The property has a beautiful setting and we always felt safe and comfortable. There are many great local restaurants and the beautiful beaches and waterfalls are only a short drive away. I would highly recommend staying at Scarlett Villas!

Scarlet Villas in Ojochal is an absolute gem! We loved our stay on their beautiful grounds in our spacious villa. We had excellent wifi and plenty of space to spread out and relax. The pool is wonderful and was a very appreciated amenity for us. They have plenty of space for groups and retreats and this would be a great place to visit with a group of friends or family! We felt the staff was friendly and accommodating, and really want to ensure that you feel taken care of during your visit.

We (3 women, a newborn baby and 2 dogs) had a last minute reservation to stay at the scarlet villas and enjoyed every moment of it! Off the beaten path, It was dark when we arrived however the entrance was warm and welcoming . Helder instructed us where our room was as it was after hours, and passing through the reception I felt comfortable , relaxed and safe. Our room/ cabina was cozy, clean, and easy to navigate - and next to the pool which was elegantly lit and inviting (a couple of us went for a midnight swim ! ) I having a newborn baby relaxed in my room after a quick shower with ease and enjoyed the calm of our space, delighted that we, doggies and all, were comfortable. We all slept well and in the morning had coffee in our cute outdoor kitchen area, enjoying the sun and our privacy as well as being able to enjoy watching the other guests, man with dogs, play in the pool! Helder is a great host and we will absolutely stay again; highly recommended and enjoyed :))

Love this boutique property nestled into the hills of Ojochal. Six gorgeous villas, all with equipped kitchens, air-conditioning and a choice of one or two bedrooms. Beautiful yoga shala surrounded by jungle and lush garden, inviting swimming pool and spacious guest recreation area complete with pool table.

Staff, Helder, welcomed us and showed us around at arrival. Accommodation is above expectation and the grounds and pool are well appointed. Perfect for a relaxing stay. Make sure you bring some breakfast items, in a cooler, for the next the morning, kitchen is well stocked with equipment, so it is easy to make your own breakfast. We will be coming back.

Talk about beauty in the jungle ! Hard to put into words the Scarlet Villas surrounded by the natural beauty of Costa Rica. The plants and surroundings are so healthy and vibrant they make you take a second look to see if they are real . They are indeed though . The pool just seems to flow into the mountain river that runs thru the Villas. The sound of the gentle stream , the call of the birds , the hammocks, will take you to place of rest you never dreamed of . Casey (owner) and Helder( manager) will take unbelievable care of your every need and want. Whether it is extreme adventures or jungle excursions to ocean excursions to see the wildlife of the ocean and jungle they can hook you up ! Restaurants- they have you taken care of . They are amazing in their service and hospitality. You will definitely feel as though they are friends and family. The Villas make you seem you are not surrounded by anyone . It leads you to think this is your own private resort . If Costa Rica is your destination- you have to check out the Scarlet Villas . Open air game room - gathering area- massive yoga area - massage - they have it all .

Beautiful, clean, and welcoming villas! I just returned from a week's vacation here and I'm already planning my trip back. The villas are nothing but perfect. The staff is incredibly friends, and we truly felt like family. We went on a girls' trip which can sometimes be unsettling when you are in an unfamiliar place, but we all felt so comfortable and safe the entire time. Helder (staff) is amazing and is always available if you need anything, including giving recommendations for restaurants, and things to do. The rooms are clean and comfy, and they each have a small kitchen with the yummiest Costa Rican coffee, which is perfect to drink on the patio in the morning. They have shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the showers and have separate towels for the pool and shower. The yoga deck is stunning, and you can even message the hotel and they will set up massages for you. (highly recommend this) The saltwater pool is perfect to cool off in during the day or even to take a late-night swim in. 12/10 recommend to all travelers!!!
