Wonderful experience. Owners were friendly and full of knowledge about the area. The villas were very clean and comfortable. The property was well kept and spacious. The surrounding area is what you would expect considering you are in the jungle. Since it is the “green season,” there this time of year, there was some rain at times and everywhere you turn is green and full of wild life. Highly recommend Villas Kalei.

Property's Favourite Review
This place is an oasis in paradise. Beautiful villas with super cool showers and window walls that slide completely open to your private courtyard. This great property has a great shared open kitchen area with a beautiful pool area. Great to share it with all the birds, monkeys, iguana's and beautiful foliage. Feels like Marcos & Jeisha are now family from the time we spent there with them. And this place is so convenient to many great beaches within a short drive. The only downside was that we did eventually had to leave! Can't wait to get back and see these guys as soon as possible. We miss you!

We LOVED our stay at Villas Kalei over Christmas. From first contact the service was second to none. The property is absolutely stunning. Everything is immaculately clean and you can tell that every detail has been thoroughly thought out and the place was built with love. The kitchen area was such a huge bonus for us as we were travelling with young children. Thank you Jeisha and Marcos for a wonderful stay.

Jeisha and Marcos are the most amazing hosts we've ever met! They provided so many insider tips for our time there. Their Villas are breathtaking and inviting. We loved the all glass exterior and the beach vibes interior of each villa. The pool was a perfect way to relax after spending a day at the beach or exploring! We will definitely be back and will recommend Villas Kalei to anyone we know going to Costa Rica!

Villas Kalei is in my experience the best place I visited for vacation, it is a peaceful place, with personalized, and unbeatable attention. It is close to the beach and the mountain, great other services are offering in the villas. The workers are very kind persons and with experience and wonderful customer care. I highly recommend Villas Kalei for your next vacation.

We chanced upon a stay here for four nights during the very busy semana santa and felt like the luckiest people ever. We booked two neighboring all glass, thoroughly modern villas for our family of five. The hosts thought of everything in designing this property - beautiful pool, shared outdoor kitchen and lounge areas, organic bath products in stunning bathrooms, outdoor showers, gorgeous zero scape, and attention to every detail. They had fabulous local recommendations and were super available via WhatsApp for all our needs and requests. We immediately connected about the fact that they lived close to where we do in North Carolina and loved their stories about living all over the world. They've created a unique paradise within walking distance to Pueblo restaurant (great homemade pasta) and a quick drive to Pots and Bowls and El Huerto (could not get enough of their watermelon juice and thin crust pizza delivered to the table on thick cut slabs of wood) and Playa Grande and Playa Ventanas (our favorite). Cannot recommend this highly enough as a home base in the area. We were really sad saying goodbye!

I extended a 5 day booking into 3 weeks. The hosts went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable and one that ill cherish forever. The accommodation was tranquil with much wildlife. The villas are high spec and kept immaculately clean and tidy by the owners who are deeply passionate bout their business - and it shows. Highly recommend. Will return.

What a wonderful getaway!! We traveled all Costa Rica with my fiancé. We went to a lot of wild places and finally wanted to chill out and have a comfort stay for a few days. Villas Kalei looked amazing on the photos online. I fell in love with it and we booked our stay ! We were lucky that they still had available room as in Villas Kalei there are only 4 villas (so book in advance!) and I actually realized that people come back and stay for a long time as it’s so wonderful ! We HAD to make our stay last twice longer, we didn’t want to leave! It was so amazing to cook it the most adorable outside kitchen (that everyone shares), equipped with modern cookware. We personally never wanted to eat outside of that kitchen:) The owners are super friendly, helpful, and responsive. You can really tell they care about the villas as one would care about own home. I am so grateful for everything and really do hope to come back or at least to send my mom for such an awesome vacation :)

We both work in hospitality and were more than happy with everything here. Being the time of Covid we felt completely comfortable with the privacy and cleanliness of all areas. The shared (outdoor) kitchen was perfect and very re-assuring. Salt water pool was delightful. Marcos and Jeisha were fantastic hosts and very helpful all around. Villas are excellent from the drinkable water to good AC privacy etc. All in all we give our highest recommendation and if you are looking for somewhere safe and relaxing this should be top of your list.
