Very comfortable large house, perfect for 6, fabulous ocean view and lots of monkies !

  • 5 of 5

The six of us, 4 adults and two children just loved the villa and enjoyed both the pool and jacuzzi. Up with the sun at 6 am to admire the spectacular views from the terrasses and often back again at the house for the beautiful sunsets in the ocean. Good location with a practical bus stop and small supermarkets close by. Short bus ride to the beach and to the national park. Our host Jean was just perfect, very helpful, very reactive when needed and giving us good practical advise, thank you ! We saw more monkies at the villa than anywhere else, lots of mothers carrying their babies on the back, very quick, excellent jumpers and climbers and not really afraid of humans - you have to be careful not to leave any bananas around ! The weather was just gorgeous during our 6 night stay, we would gladly have stayed longer. Hope to be back one day. Pura vida !

Perfect House, Unbeatable Views, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the perfect choice for our first trip to Manuel Antonio. It is centrally located with restaurants, stores, and a bus stop just down the street. The scenery has it all- top floor is above the canopy with unblocked ocean and sunset views, lower floors surrounded by fruit trees and wildlife. A group of monkeys(10-15) stopped by every morning to relax and play on the pool deck for an hour or two. Watching them from the balcony was a great way to get the day started and beat anything we saw at the national park. The surrounding jungle and being near the top of the hill provided great privacy.

In addition to the villa setup being excellent, having Jean as a host was an added bonus. He set up our ride from the airport and gave us a rundown of everything we needed to know on arrival- transportation, food, things to do... He took care of setting up the tours we chose and kept us informed of daily specials at area restaurants.

After experiencing the great views, wildlife, private pool and hospitality at this villa, we will definitely stay here again on future trips.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home had a great central location and a spectacular view. We saw more wild life from the balconies than we did at the national park. The property owner was very helpful and accommodating. Thanks, Jean!

We had a wonderful time during our stay! Everything was so close to the villa. You could see the ocean from every direction, and had the best sunsets in Costa Rica! We will be back!
