Villa Selva is a lovely space perched on the second floor overlooking the jungle. It is great for brid watching and seeing the monkeys scamper through the trees.

Selva and the other 5 villas also have their own private outdoor space.

We're an active family with a 10 year old boy and 8 year old girl. Both Mercy & Canuche have worked in sustainable building in the Seattle Area before becoming your happiness engineers providing you with delight and fun in Samara, Costa Rica at Villas Espavel and in Seattle Washington at The Plum. We live in Leavenworth, Washington. When we aren't helping guests create wonderful vacations, we love to cook, eat local food and spend time outside with friends and family. We are beekeepers, avid gardeners, hikers and campers. When the weather is warm we love to SUP, surf, boogie and snorkel. When the white stuff falls you'll find us on skis enjoying downhill, X-country or skate terrain. We have traveled much of the world, some of our favorite places are Costa Rica, Mexico, Turkey, Syria and Scandinavia. We love hosting people and sharing the beauty of Costa Rica and Seattle.
