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.

Once in a lifetime experience!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was a palace jewel located in a virgin forest dotted with wild life such as Toucan birds, monkeys and many more making for many hours of entertainment. All the rooms were large and appointments were of top quality. The grounds were well manicured, clean and spacious. In all a truly "once in a lifetime experience" !!!!!

Paradise in the Rainforest

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Christmas Day (2016) to what can only be described as peaceful paradise. The driveway (a four wheel drive is preferred - which we had) access makes it even that much more charming as you navigate a gravel road through lush rainforest up to top of mountain.

The property and house are amazing. The house was immaculate and Manuel met us as we drove up. What a kind soulful spirit he is. My two college age daughters enjoyed the pool and we totally embraced the Pura Vida lifestyle by using the outdoor grill/pavilion (a Costa Rican way of life) the whole time we were there.

The wildlife was amazing as well. Toucans, monkeys, lizards etc were constant wonders to see.

Location of house is close to quiet beautiful beaches as well as the towns of Quepos and Dominical (hippy surfer town we loved). San Jose was about 3 hours away and Fortuna about 5 1/2 hours away by car.

Teresa arranged for local chef (yvelis) to cook for us and it was a fantastic meal.

Thanks to all for a great experience.

Another Day in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at El Paraiso and again we were totally enthralled

with the villa. The tranquil locale is just perfect if you enjoy privacy and the feel of nature right on the edge of the jungle. The amenities and comfort of the villa are fantastic. Manuel, the local property manager, is immediately available for any assistance if required. We had Yeleris cook a Costa Rican dinner for us which was amazing. The beach at Matapolo, a 5 minute drive, is incredible. We are already planning another visit for next year. Thanks, Manuel and Yerelis,for your friendly service.

Just what the "Doctor" ordered!

  • 5 of 5

This home sits on a beautiful hillside over looking the ocean on the horizon. The place is quiet, peaceful and beautifully kept and maintained. The caretaker "Manuel", is friendly, helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay because we wanted a place to ourselves without all the "resort" music, activities and culture. Everyday ... 2 beautiful parrots visited us as well as toucans. It is very near Quepos for shopping and dining as well as the National Park, Manuel San Antonio. We will be back! Pura Vida Todo!

The Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late, after dark at El Paraiso and we were met by Manuel who had been available by text and cell to coordinate our arrival. He helped with our baggage and showed us all features of the house. He told us to call him with any questions or problems. We immediately noticed that the house and property were in meticulous condition. The kitchen is spacious and the best equipped of any kitchen in my rental experience. All utensils and appliance were spotlessly clean and organized. We like to cook and everything was available --excellent pots, blenders small and large, whisks, spatulas, good quality chef's knives and very nice quality glasses and plates and a dishwasher and washer dryer all with appropriate detergents! The MaxiPali grocery is 15 min away and has everything that you will need. You can stop there on the highway on your way to the house before arrival. We also bought delicious fresh tuna at the seafood stand in the market in Quepos.

The beds and linens are very comfortable, the bathrooms are spacious and the towels are fluffy and pristine with amenities kits provided. Also of importance, there are individual air conditioners in the bedrooms and living area--all of these work very well.

The outdoor areas are spectacular and perfectly maintained. The small pool with the tanning deck is fantastic and we didn't miss having a full sized pool. We ate outside at night and the ambiance was spectacular.

You have to rent a 4x4 vehicle to get up the road. We really enjoyed having our own private 1 km driveway for walking and jogging through the magnificent pastures and palm plantation. The house is very close to some of the best beaches like Matapalo which are beautiful and not crowded. You are 20 minutes from Quepos or Dominical /Uvita both of which have many activities. There are very good restaurants within 5 minutes of the house and there is a small market across from the entrance to the driveway.

We can not say how much we appreciate your sharing your lovely home and property with us. Manuel and Yarelis take great pride in their work and are so helpful in every respect. We hope to return sooner than later.

Oasis in the Costa Rican Jungle

  • 5 of 5

RELAXATION, COMFORT, NATURE, ADVENTURE and OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE! I can't say enough about this Costa Rican Paradise, "El Paraiso".

I was astonished by the amenities and comforts that this rental home provided. A few included washer and dryer, well maintained kitchen appliances/utensils, air conditioning, comfortable bedding and TV, these amenities were a nice retreat after enjoying the outside all day . The entire home was extremely CLEAN!

Relaxation was easily obtained by lounging both in and out of the pool, as well as an occasional nap, really places your mind at ease. Listening to the birds chirps all around, was a pleasant reminder that I was really in the jungle on a true vacation experience.

Manuel, the groundskeeper, really gave the home a personal touch. Anything that we needed, questions, or wanted to find, he was there to provide service. He was there to greet us when we arrived, accessible during our stay and waved good-bye as we left. The hiking paths were clear and he gave us a guided tour. Manuel showed us wild boar foot prints, pointed out the sloth and we observed the active jungle ants diligently working. during our hike.

Later that day, the toucans greeted us as we watched them from the bathroom window. The monkeys were plentiful to view, and we could hear them rustling in the nearby trees.

We took advantage of the housekeeping service as well as the chef. The authentic Costa Rican meal was DELICIOUS! (The additional cost was well worth it!)

Overall, I have not stopped sharing my experience and the comforts that made this vacation astonishing. I will rent again at this vacation home as soon as my time permits.

Pura Vida!
