Named for the property’s original resident – a sloth who oversees things from his guarumo tree home ,Villa Perezoso, a luxury six-story Balinese home a stone’s throw from the sun and surf of Costa Rica’s idyllic ocean beaches and just minutes from the pristine rainforests of Manuel Antonio National Park, begins a donation program contributing a portion of each guest’s rental income to the rescue and rehabilitation of sloths by the organization Kids Saving the Rainforest.
Started by two nine year-old girls who saw the rainforest disappearing from their beloved home and inspired to save it, Kids Saving the Rainforest (KSTR) priority is to grow, expand and continue the operation of wildlife rehabilitation, sanctuary, reforestation and volunteer programs.
“We are thrilled with this partnership,” said Jennifer Rice, CEO of Kids Saving the Rainforest, “Villa Perezoso’s commitment to helping with the feeding, care and rehabilitation of the sloths is key to their eventual successful reentry to their natural habitat.” “ We are grateful to be contributing to helping a local organization who is doing amazing work with the wildlife here in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Their work not only impacts wildlife here but their research and findings can have a global impact for the sloth population”, said Seda Sejud, Proprietor of Villa Perezoso.
It takes a mere $17 per week to maintain the life of a sloth. Sejud encourages all citizens to get on board to maintain the magnificence of this vital part of Costa Rica. Donations may be made directly on Kids Saving the Rainforest Website.
Villa Perezoso is pleased to also announce the expansion of its staff services. For guests booking the entire Villa, a bartender/ server will be part of the staff services in addition to the house manager/concierge, chef and housekeeping. Villa Perezoso is now accepting bookings for its 2015 season. To contact Villa Perezoso, email firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-460-2591 (toll free).
