Manuel Antonio villa

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 7

“Fabulous location & villa” We arrived after a stunning scenic drive through acres of palms and picturesque villages alongside a meandering river. Expecting disappointment after such a start, we braced ourselves; a steep climb and we reached a narrow ridge. As the ridge broadened out the villa revealed itself, rendering us speechless. A stunning location: sea views; cradled sides and rear with mist-shrouded mountain rainforest peaks. Luis, the manager a loyal friend of the owner, is one of a kind. He was discretion itself, sometimes walking up to service the pool at five am, before working on the family farm. The villa is a curved structure framed in glass; a central atrium topped by a massive overhanging roof bringing shade to the huge curved terraces gracing the large master suits on the first floor. All glass, with stunning 360 degree views. The curved horizon pool includes a set of canals into the atrium and traversed by a wooden bridge. After an extensive shop we settled into the villa and didn't move till it was time to leave. We never felt safer or more in love with a place. Lastly, more about Luis: he is Eden Estate - approaching all aspects of his job with dedication to make your stay memorable. Nothing is too much trouble. One morning he arrived with a beautifully-attired horse: one of the many wild horses roaming the estate, captured, tamed and trained by locals for Luis. "A surprise!" he exclaimed. Having never mounted a horse in my life I did have some reservations. But, we enjoyed this quiet steed as Luis walked her gracefully around the grounds. After that we became friends and he regaled us with stories of family life past and present; his travels to the us, South america and his dreams for the future. Booking was easy, the directions superb and, all in all, Steve (the owner) was very keen to make sure that we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Recommended for a peaceful vacation, yet within easy reach of the Central Pacific coast and the Manuel antonio area.

“Our Stay at Lattice House was magical, the view breathtaking, th” Lattice House is a dream home in a beautiful setting with a perfect view. Waking each morning to drink delicious Costa Rican coffee on the side deck with my binoculars and bird book, visited by Toucans, kites, woodpeckers, and more, is an experience I will cherish. The delicious food, cooked by alexandra and Farina was among the best we have ever enjoyed, and ana's graciousness and attentiveness to our every need made the week unforgettable. Thank you to all for a wonderful family vacation.

“Great Costa Rica getaway!” Costa Rica is such a beautiful country and we were able to enjoy it at this great condo! It was very affordable and had everything we needed. There is a pool right outside the door (which was never crowded) and we had a view of a beautiful waterfall. The other condo owners/tenants were wonderful as well! Property Management was great and helped us out with logistics, day trips and car rental details!

“For the price this house cant be beat.” Great stay ! Michael and Soli were very nice, The house had everything we needed and more, it was cool they had U.S.A cable tv programming. The house was clean, quiet ,comfortable and a nice pool. This house was a great deal at $ 100 a day between the 4 of us it only cost $ 175 each week. For that alone I have to give 5 stars.

The Bali House on the Beach, best location by far!

Manuel Antonio villa

5 bedrooms / 7 bathrooms / sleeps 12

“Perfect!” This is a wonderfully unique property - stunning, open Asian design / floor plan, multiple private bedrooms, all set within a private jungle, with access to Manuel Antonio beach. What more is there to say? The master bedroom is fantastic, and all the bedrooms are extremely well-appointed, if sparse, in their Asian/Aman Hotel sort of way. The heart of the property is the open air living room, with an incredible Indonesian ceiling construction. Being surrounded by lush jungle, open air, and beautiful polished wood - it's exquisite. For our extended family, including small children, we found the infinity pool "just right" in terms of size and location. The walk down to the private beach access is gorgeous in and of itself and the beach, spectacular (bring boogie board fins to take max advantage.) Ownership and staff were wonderfully helpful. The overall location within Manuel Antonio was ideal, and unparalleled, to our perspective. We'd strongly recommend this property and look forward to returning!!

Villa 4 Las Brisas-Award Winner!

Playa Hermosa villa

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Paradise...check” My family found paradise ...Playa Hermosa. A very quaint town not overly run with tourist attractions. This condo was amazing. It was clean and comfortable with many fantastic amenities. We grilled out during a big football game here in the states. We swam laps and splashed around in the clean and quiet pool just feet from the condo. We were able to capture beautiful sunsets from the second floor balcony. The property staff also gave us limes and bananas picked on site that morning. A few step from the condo gets you to the ocean where the waves are crashing and the monkeys are playing over head. The on-site managers were friendly, kind, and very helpful suggesting things to do and see. The area was very safe. We all agreed we will return!

Cariari Condo w/View (+ Free Airport Welcome & Paid Tours, buses, Restaurants)

Ciudad Cariari apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Will Definitely Come Back” The city of San Jose is such a large area, location just cannot be stressed enough. The location of this condo is perfect. It's in a quite location, so you can relax and enjoy your time at the condo. But it's also close enough to walk to the nearby mall and shopping area so you can get food and other things without having to pay the expense of a taxi. (In Costa Rica taxi's are very expensive.) It's also close to the airport which is very convenient. Being only ten minutes away from the airport is always a plus. Then there's the condo itself. The setup is so nice that you really lack nothing. There's a kitchen you can use if you don't want to go out for food. You can do your laundry right in the condo. There is phone that you can use to call the States for free, WiFi internet, cable TV and a Blu-Ray player. The condo was very clean the beds were very comfortable. Can't wait to stay here again!

About Costa Rica

Costa Rica calls to mind cloud forests, toucans, white sand beaches, and palm trees. Many visitors receive their first impressions of this ecotourism destination point from the colorful wildlife and mangrove trees of Manuel Antonio National Park. Whether you spend your vacation hiking through the cloud forest, exploring volcanoes, or surfing on Costa Rica's perfect blue waves, you'll never forget your visit to this protected paradise. The wildlife spotting alone will challenge your imagination. Just a few of the cast of characters you may encounter here include humpback whales, Baird's tapirs, howler monkeys, jaguars, leatherback sea turtles, and brilliantly colored macaws. While you are here, sample the delicious sweet churros of San Jose, relax on the beach, or go rafting, rappelling, and zip-lining through the rainforest canopy. Whether you stay in a cabin rental near Montezuma or a luxury beachfront villa near the Playa Jaco, you'll never run out of breathtaking experiences in Costa Rica.

Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in Costa Rica:

  • Mountain biking: The variety of off-road paths and cattle trails around Costa Rica makes this an ideal spot for mountain biking.
  • Surfing: If you're serious about surfing, you may want to find a vacation rental close to Tamarindo Beach, famous for great surfing.
  • La Paz Waterfall Garden: Just a short trip from San Jose, the Waterfall Garden is not to be missed.
  • Sloth Sanctuary: Meet rescued sloths and learn about these extraordinary animals while observing them in their natural habitat.
  • Tour a coffee plantation: Find out more about this miracle bean from the coffee growers who understand it best.

No matter what time of you year you visit, the weather in Costa Rica is beautiful. Luckily, vacation rentals are widely available through the year in Costa Rica. Don't forget to bring your camera and your sense of adventure.

Apartamentos Veranera
Next door to the ocean at Playa Grande Guanacaste Costa Rica.

The comfort of two bedrooms with private entrance in this gated yard is in a very short walk to the beautiful beach at Playa Grande, Returning to this area I would revisit and rent any time. We enjoyed the clean and well maintained accommodation with the private parking on the front, where the nice yard and garden invited and complimented our stay. With in walking distance from amenities we had a pleasant time staying there.see more
Beachfront villa with pool, great for groups, vacation together safely!
Incredible property and hosts

I rented the villas during my birthday weekend and loved the property! It’s beautifully designed and has all the bells and whistles! The open air concept is ideal for social gatherings- the kitchen was well equipped for the seafood Rondon we made on my birthday. I love the pool in the center of the villas, the water was perfect and I spent hours lounging on the nearby hammocks. Each villa had refrigerators, microwaves and cold filtered water for convenience. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are exceptional!! The stone showers and sunken tub was awesome,…. so romantic and pretty! Hot water and great pressure throughout. The best part was the proximity to the secluded beach, 100m away!! The beach was incredible. All sand and shallow water, perfect for morning swims or lazy afternoons. At night you can see all the stars! Overall, I give this place a 8/10. The hosts are very attentive and always around to provide assistance. The one thing I would’ve liked is a bit more privacy. The hosts live right next door and they come in and out of the property. With all the open spaces it’s hard to sun bathe etc.see more
Villa Cabu. Tropical new house with pool
Lovely, modern villa

We loved everything about Villa Cabu! The pool was beautiful and maintained every day. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped, the bedrooms had good fans, and everything was beautifully decorated. The beach was a bit more of a walk than we expected (and not super easy with strollers in tow), but it was a super short drive to easy beach access in all directions. The hosts were so helpful and responsive, and we really appreciated the visit from the housekeeper mid-trip. We would absolutely stay here again!see more

Ocean-front beach house, shade decks,Corcovado Sunsets, wildlife/kayaks/private.
Better than promised, better than the pictures

When we turned into the gate for this property, we thought maybe there was some mistake. Surely this long avenue of stately palms in a beautifully tended, multi-acre botanical paradise couldn't be the back yard of the simple beach house we thought we had rented? But it was! And the beach in front -- gorgeous, wild, empty, far more than we'd ever expected. The house itself is also undersold--the upstairs lanai, the nice design for front-to-back breezes through the two upstairs bedrooms--lots of pleasant surprises. And let's not forget gregarious Beto and his shy but warm wife Yolanda, the caretakers. They did not intrude, but worked behind the scenes to make sure the trails on the property were perfectly raked, the dinners we had arranged with them beautifully presented. Wildlife on the property itself is pretty darn good: coatis, really entertaining troupes of monkeys, macaws, etc. Helene, the owner, is extremely responsive to any questions or needs. A few comments based on prior reviews: (1) The beach IS swimmable and is a delight if you go in only at low tide and wallow between the first and second breaks. Some beach savvy is a plus. (2) In dry season, the road from Puerto Jimenez is really not too bad. It took us a little over an hour. But you do need 4WD (or a taxi) (3) La Luna Lodge, up a super fun/rough 4WD road beyond the Carate airstrip, is a welcoming lunch destination. (4) Your own private stretch of beach is great for endless walks, but even better is the day walk into the park, for which you need a guide. The park opens at 5 am, and we would suggest figuring out a way for your guide to go in with you right at dawn, to get the magical early light, cooler air, and wildlife. The house does require careful planning to be sure you have the right food to last your stay, since you probably won't want to be driving back to PJ for that one forgotten ingredient. In that regard, know that there is excellent freezer capacity but only limited refrigeration capacity (~1 cubic foot). Things like milk should be brought in UHT or powdered form, to keep from using up the fridge area.see more

Our family had a great stay. The rooms were comfortable. The outdoor living space was spacious and the kitchen was fully equipped. The hosts were responsive and very helpful.
