General house info: : Unlike so many other Manuel Antonio vacation rental properties that are crowded together near noisy roads, and bars and restaurants, this property is secluded, yet only 5 minute drive to Playa Matapalo, or 15 minute drive to the town of Quepos or the magnificent beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park. From the wrap-around terrace, you have a 360 degree ocean view, where you can watch spectacular sunsets over the Pacific ocean. Nestled up in the mountains of the Costa Rican Rainforest, breezes blow all day and at night switch directions and come off the mountains to keep this house comfortable all the time. The house is fully equipped with everything you need for your stay. The local area has wonderful fresh produce, fish, meat and chicken as well as a growing selection of wines and liquors, so you can stay at home and cook, or we can arrange for your own 'personal chef' to cook any type of international cuisine meals for your group. We try to offer the best rates in the area.

The tropical gardens are a work of love by our caretakers and entice you to take walks in the lush greenery and to see the wonders of the tropics close at hand (It's really like living in a tropical zoo!)

The owner will gladly help with arranging special vacation packages or any aspect of your vacation. Amenities: The house is completely furnished: full kitchen with all amenities, TV / DVD player, cable, CD player, internet service, washer and dryer, BBQ grill, covered outdoor entertainment area, pool with out door shower, covered carport.

Spectacular Ocean Views from Every Room & Terrace - Lots of Monkeys & Toucans!
Manuel Antonio Puntarenas

Beautiful property - lovely caretaker

  • 4 of 5
We are seasoned travellers and this is our second time touring Costa Rica.

Beautiful property, well appointed home and a friendly caretaker named Manuel. He is thorough and efficient. The resident cat was an added bonus, a sweet little guy who lives outside and is cared for by Manuel.

We were admittedly disappointed however by 2 things:

- The house is out in the middle of nowhere, halfway between Quepos and Dominical accessed by a windy gravel road and then a very steep driveway that lies beyond a tall gate that you must unlock and lock each time that runs up the mountain. We figured we'd have a better chance at seeing animals by being so far but sadly we didn't see a thing. The property sits atop a mountain surrounded by palm oil plantations and there is little wildlife to be seen here. We even went on a trek through the dark jungle to see if we could find anything but were more mindful of snakes than anything as it is quite dark and it was raining. We think we saw a Toucan fly by once and there were many small colourful birds in the area but that was all. Lots of Cane Toads at night if you like toads. (thankfully we do...)

- The second disappointment was that the pool is very small (it appears much larger on the photos) so if you're a larger family (there were 5 of us), the pool won't be a key feature. It's as deep as your ankle for half of it then there's a half portion of the pool that you can wade into up to your waist. It was perfect for our 7 year old.

The BBQ area is nice at night, all lit up and the balconies are also nice to sit on and enjoy the greenery of the plantations and fields that lie beyond it. If you look closely on a clear day you can see the ocean in the distance but I wouldn't call this house an 'ocean view'.

Don't recommend staying here in the rainy season as the electricity does go out a fair bit and you are so isolated it's quite a trek to leave the house in a storm to a nearby village especially if it's pouring out.

If you want to really get away from it all and be alone and don't care about wildlife or a big pool, or the power going out daily, then this is a beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed home to chill in and I'm sure the cat would appreciate the company.

A paradise in the jungle.

I have nothing but good things to say about this place. My wife and I have used homeaway/VRBO all over the world and have found great properties. This is definitely among the best! The property was beautifully kept and all the amenities were laid out just where we needed them. We arrived slightly early, but the caretaker, Manuel, was gracious enough to interrupt what he was doing to meet us at El Paraiso and give us a tour and all the instructions we needed to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We had lunch plans that afternoon, but we quickly cancelled them when we realized that we would rather stay in and relax in the beautiful property. We stayed buy the pool all afternoon and enjoyed all the wonderful birds, and especially a beautiful toucan who serenaded us for about 30 minutes. We also enjoyed the visit of capuchin monkeys the next morning as we were getting ready to go to Manuel Antonio National Park. Overall a great experience and would recommend it highly. Note that you should have a 4x4 to access the property and we're glad to have gotten that instruction from Karen, the property manager, when we were making the arrangements.

Take me back to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
The property is amazing. It was our first trip to Costa Rica so I wasn't sure what to expect from the location in the Jungle or being out of town but it truly made our trip. Coming home every evening to this wonderful house and waking up eating breakfast by the pool made our trip. The house was incredibly clean, Manuel does an amazing job on the grounds and was extremely accommodating when we had to checkout at 11:30pm. So many animals stopped by including Monkeys, wild boars, Iguanas, Birds and butterflies. Although you are out of town the drive is quick and there are a ton of activities near the house. Ziplining, Riverrafting, Tours of Manuel Antonio, Dominical is extremely close for surfing and diving. I would love to return to this place and would defiantly recommend it to my friends and family.

The title summarizes it all. We fell in love with this house the first time we stayed here. It was more expensive than some of the other options but well worth it. The pictures are exactly what the house looks like. It is impeccably maintained and cared for on a daily basis. The outside patio area is perfect for outside entertaining. Awesome gas grill. The two bedrooms are spacious and the beds are super comfortable. The kitchen has more stuff than my own kitchen at home. Sunsets, wildlife, ocean to the front and jungle in the back. I wish I could share pictures as well as words. Please stay here so you can appreciate Cost Rica. 30 min to Manuel Antonio. 30 min to Dominical. Rent a car and enjoy this house.

Fabulous property away from the tourists!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here and loved the way that the house is a little off the beaten track. The house is very comfortable and the pool very much appreciated. Manuel was there every day, looking after the property. The only slight disappointment was that we didn't see any animals actually on the property... no monkeys at breakfast! Overall though we had a wonderful stay and would strongly recommend. The local beaches are wonderful and no tourists.
