Property Details

Updated: Nov 20, 2014
Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, 16 Sleeps

Vista Oceana is unique among the Luxury Vacation Rental Homes in

Manuel Antonio. The design and name of this incredible multi

the owner to give every room in the main house as well as the guest

house unobstructed ocean views, including all six bathrooms. The villa

is located 1000 ft from the ocean and sits atop a small bluff elevated

200 ft above the beach allowing you to hear the waves breaking as you

watch the surfers below.

The panoramic view stretches from the world famous Manuel Antonio

national park across the long public beach and up to the rocky

shoreline of the Mariposa Peninsula to the north.

You will find abundant space and privacy for your entire group to

enjoy in this 6000 square foot climate controlled house, which

includes 6 elegant master suites. Every suite has its own private

bathroom and balcony while one of the suites also includes a 2 person

Jacuzzi so you can sit relax and have a glass of wine while you look

out at the Manuel Antonio national park and beach.

From the moment of your arrival, the sights and sounds of the Pacific

Ocean, and the jungle surrounding Vista Oceana will greet you. As you

approach the main entry and gaze past the custom front door you will

you will feel your breath taken away as you take in the vistas and

start your luxury vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had such a wonderful time in Costa Rica and Vista Oceana was spectacular. The photos didn't do it justice!



We had three arriving groups that met at the villa and despite some of us that had flight delays, the shuttle service was timely, clean, comfortable, and friendly. A great start to the trip.



The first excursion the group did was the 10 in 1, which was actually a 7 in 1. The zip-line, monkey free-fall, tree ladders, and waterfall repelling were exhilarating! The crew that took us was so encouraging and energetic, it even got the most frightened of the group to conquer her fears. People warned us about the rain during the "winter" season in Costa Rica, but there was a point where we took a break during our excursion and were eating fresh pineapple in the rain forest as it was pouring rain and it didn't bother a single person. It was almost magical in a sense and couldn't have been more perfect.



We were all pretty much wiped out on the second day and with the villa being so beautiful, we wanted a day to just enjoy it. We made great use out of the pool and outdoor area. Unfortunately the speakers and dishwasher did not work and the dryer was a bit finicky. However, the cleaning lady was on top of it. The dishes were cleaned before we could even get to them, she assisted us with the dryer, and the house was immaculate when she left. She did a wonderful job. I can't express enough how happy everyone was with our accommodations. Each room had a perfect view and comfortable beds. It made it very hard for all of us to come back home to our small cramped homes in DC.



Some of people in the group went off and did the parasailing excursion and had a wonderful time. Afterwards, we regrouped and went on the Sunset Sailing tour. The crew was great. They were animated, funny, and so accommodating with beverages and to some of us that got sea sick. The food was spectacular! I would say it was one of the best meals we had during our visit!



Our only regret was having to leave so soon. It was a wonderful trip and Costa Rica was better than any of us ever could have imagined. Thank you for allowing us to stay at Vista Oceana. It was certainly a real treat.



Thanks,

Kim

A Wonderful Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
This home was enjoyed by our family of 15 including grandparents, adult children, and grandchildren. Wonderful home with some private quarters near the main home. All was in great shape, clean and well-maintained with daily maid service and pool/grounds service.

Highlight of the visit was the abundance of jungle animals. An iguana greeted us on our initial introduction to the property. Monkeys galore including one inadvertent invasion by white faces when somebody left a screen door ajar. Howler monkeys were frequently observed outside the windows, A troop of squirrel monkeys playfully entertained us from the bushes around the garage. And a sloth slept most of the day on a nearby tree. Also, several colorful birds including some Toucans.

Views of the ocean were fabulous from every room and the deck. Very comfortable sleeping and eating.

Activities arranged by our concierge Hazel were excellent. We enjoyed a guided walking tour of the park, a boatride through the mangroves with another troop of entertaining monkeys, zip lining, and white water rafting. These activities all included transportation.

This was our first group vacation where we did not have rental cars. Ten minutes into our transfer from the airport to our first hotel, I knew the decision not to drive ourselves was a good decision. Transportation to beaches, restaurants, and grocery stores was easy using buses or cabs. A nearby Super Joseph was all we needed. Easy access by bus, they deliver, and usually they would drive us back to our house.

Twice we used a chef recommended by Hazel to cook an evening dinner. Probably cheaper than eating out.

We were somewhat worried about visiting during the rainy season but that was not a problem. Morning activities were never a problem. Entertaining thunderstorms a couple of evenings, got soaked walking a block or so after dinner, but no problem.

A superb house and a wonderful vacation enjoyed by all.

Perfect vacation, perfect villa

  • 5 of 5
Our large group of friends had a fantastic stay at Vista Oceana. Starting with our arrival in Manuel Antonio it was clear that Hazel and the management team had thought of everything to make our stay effortless and memorable. The villa was meticulously clean upon our arrival and Sylvia kept it that way throughout our stay. Each of the six bedrooms and numerous bathrooms were spotlessly clean – not easy with a lot of beach and jungle activity dragged daily into the house. There were 9 friends in our group and the villa is so spacious that we never felt crowded. None of us were prepared for such spectacular sunsets and it’s incredible that all six bedrooms and all the common areas have the same unobstructed ocean views. We made sure to be back from all our excursions with plenty of time to enjoy the sunset each day with cocktails by the beautiful infinity pool. Equally exciting was the amazing array of wildlife just outside the doors of the villa. Squirrel monkeys, white-faced monkeys, sloths, lizards and toucans were seen and admired each day. Every morning, charming squirrel monkeys would come onto the deck for banana and mango breakfast.

The area has a tremendous amount of outdoor activities and all of the excursions that were planned for us were entertaining, challenging and unforgettable. Highlights included: parasailing, ocean jet skiing, canopy zip lining, guided rain forest tour and a sunset sailboat cruise. When we needed time off, a beautiful white sand beach was only a 15-minute walk away. The villa is walking distance to some very nice bars and restaurants but the best thing we signed up for was the private chef. Marisol and her partner were simply wonderful. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners were well-planned, beautifully presented and always delicious. The fact that Marisol is so cheerful and friendly made each meal even more pleasant.

Everything about this villa was top-knotch: large rooms, multiple bathrooms, modern appliances and special items such as washer & dryer, and a locking pantry with a safe. The only minor drawback was a faulty air conditioner in one of the bedrooms. This is not unusual due to the tropical location and constant use. As soon as Hazel was notified there was a maintenance man on the scene to repair the problem. To sum up, this vacation was the best ever, good friends, the perfect house, excellent staff, wonderful food, great location and amazing sun sets.

Most amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This house is absolutely beautiful! Clean, up to date, beautiful views, spacious. Property manager is so helpful, staff pleasant and helpful. You can walk to the beach from the house, it's not very far but a very steep hill. We loved our canyoning experience the most of all the tours we did. Highly recommend even if you are afraid to try new things! I have never done anything like that and am so glad I did! We highly recommend hiring their private chefs. The restaurants we tried were not great. Poor service and took forever. Private chefs were amazing. And their cost the same price or less than eating at a restaurant. We had monkeys every morning on the back patio. So amazing. We fed the squirrel monkeys bananas out of our hands. They were so sweet and gentle. Don't recommend feeding the white faced monkeys. They got aggressive after we fed them once. We would highly recommend this property to anyone with a large group!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5
My extended family, with ages ranging from 6 months to 85 years old, stayed in this property in August for a family reunion. The house was immaculate, incredibly spacious, and comfortable enough for a large group. It has been designed so that each room has a magnificent view of the ocean, a balcony in which to chill out, and a spacious bathroom. Particularly with having lots of kids in the group, housekeeping did an awesome job in keeping it clean, and in ensuring we had fresh towels available when returning from the beach. There were a few glitches with some electronics, but given that the house is in the tropics where it is very difficult to keep these things working, it wasn't too surprising. We would highly, highly recommend the chef service with Israel and Marisol, as the quality was outstanding, and their willingness to accommodate special requests very much appreciated. As for the location, no doubt the views were awesome, and the beauty of seeing 3 types of monkeys, toucans, and other birds quite special. Foot access to the beach is not exactly easy, but it is a 5 minute drive, so not much of a problem. There are plenty of activities available on Manuel Antonio, such as fishing, surfing, hang gliding, ATV, etc., and there are also pristine beaches inside the park with calmer waves. Last but not least, our deposit was promptly returned. All in all, we would highly recommend Vista Oceana to other guests.

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5
The trip was fantastic. The house was perfect, the excursions were top notch, and the food was wonderful. Thomas and Hazel were amazing, trust me, I don’t throw that word around. I’m in the customer service business and I have high expectations. Thomas and Hazel delivered. I can’t forget about Sylvia, she was great. I’ve never really been in house so clean.

As for the excursions, all were good. The group consensus is the Sun Set Cruise was the best. The food on the boat was the second best meal on the trip. The first was the night we had our chef. The food was excellent, I didn’t think I was going to be able move from over eating. I would say the 10-1 Zip Lining was second. But again, all the excursions were great. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the transportation companies that chauffeured us around. They were always on time and friendly.

This was by far the best vacation I’ve had in my 52 yrs. We are already talking about a return trip to Costa Rica. The house is perfectly located making it easy to experience the Costa Rican wildlife. One of the couples is trying to figure out how they can make a living in Costa Rica. They want to experience “Pura Vida” for life.

Please use me as a reference for Vista Oceana.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5
We had six couples staying at Vista Oceana, never once feeling crowded. The house is beautiful and in a great location. The wild life (monkeys, sloths, toucans, and iguanas) were either on the deck or just outside the door. It's a short walk (150 meters) to the beach, but be ready for some exercise, it is steep. We pretty much walked everywhere. There are restaurants very close. When walking wasn't an option it was easy to arrange transportation or hail a cab.

If you are visiting during high season be ready for some amazing sun sets. Everyday we all made sure to return to Vista Oceana for the sun sets. We were not disappointed.

The management team that handles the property is top notch. They are there to take care of all your excursions, help assist with must see places and suggest nice restaurants. As you can image with a group of twelve we put them through their paces and they passed with flying colors.

This vacation was the best ever, good friends, the perfect house, excellent staff, wonderful food, great location and amazing sun sets.

I can't wait to go back!!!

Notes:

  • From any of our six master suites you will be lulled to sleep at night by the relaxing rhythm of the waves breaking below, and will be awakened in the morning by the delightful and unique sounds of birds and howler monkeys in the trees outside your windows. As you open your eyes you will be greeted by the by the blue Pacific and many of the small islands just offshore without ever lifting your head from the pillow. When you finally do force yourself out of bed to take a morning shower, you will be enticed to linger under the refreshing streams of water as you are treated to the same wonderful views. Unlike many of the homes in the area that offer little or no ocean view from the pool you will relax in our double sided infinity edge pool that seems to melt into the pacific, which features a swim-up-bar complete with Bar-B-Q, refrigerator and sink so you can sit, eat, relax and watch a spectacular sunset every night. Or enjoy a drink on one of any of the 8 covered decks or balconies for an even more spectacular view. The pool also has an area 12 inches deep for those with toddlers to enjoy This is one of the few luxury homes that has the main entrance at street level and can be considered handicapped friendly, the gated front entry and security provided by the two car garage at grade level allow for easy access to the main house, and the wide open floor plan makes for convenient use of a wheel chair. There are only three steps between the main living area and the first floor master suite. The main living area is also on the same level as the covered terrazzo and pool allowing everyone to be a part of the fun. Vista Oceana is one of the closest luxury homes to the national park and the public beach and is conveniently located on a paved street just 80 yards from the Manuel Antonio road and the Costa Verde Hotel where you can wave down a taxi or catch the bus in front of the hotel, or walk to any number of fine restaurants or the beach in less then 10 minutes.
