By far one of the best vacations ever. Casa Espanola is a fabulous, upscale villa that is spacious, modern and clean. I traveled with a group of 20 people and everyone was in awe. I probably will never go to a hotel again after the Casa Espanola experience. The dining area was big enough for everyone, thus producing a total family vibe at mealtime. The rooms are big and the beds are huge. Chef Glenda and her daughter were the absolute best and the menu selections are just too many to name. The ride from SJO airport was 2 1/2 hrs but no one seemed to mind the long ride because it gave you an opportunity to sightsee. We also took the local bus in Manuel Antonio for about .67 cents....what a deal. I can't say enough about this fabulous place. I can't wait to go back. Thanks to Amy, Hazel and the staff at Casa Espanola.

There are no words to describe how wonderful it was to wake up to the magnificent views at Casa Espanola. The concierge and staff at my vacation Costa Rica were very attentive to all our needs. We were there for my girlfriend's bachelorette party and we were a group of 15! From the beginning, geralyn and Amy did a great job planning out our trip. I was very anxious about how the trip was going to turn out because i had never been to Costa Rica, but they were always so prompt with responding to my emails and executing all that was promised. Geralyn set up all of our excursions ahead of time. She even scheduled massages at the property! You won't want to leave this place! The pictures do not do it justice! It is even more beautiful in person. We posted photos on instagram with the hashtag #casaespanola so that you can see some photos from our experience. There were 4 floors and each had an ocean view! It was refreshing being able to wake up to that every morning! Every day, the cleaning staff came and cleaned up the property thoroughly, so the house was so nice every time we got back from our daily outing. Oh and our private chef, Chef Harold, was amazing!!!! He and his wife are so nice and the food is delicious! They have a menu on site and they will cook anything you request as long as they can get the ingredients. I would recommend Costa Rican cuisine because it is really yummy. All you have to pay for is the cost of food. And it is definitely worth it! The beaches are close by and easy to get to. The cost of transportation is about $1.75 per person each way. We had breakfast at Cafe Milagro. Their food is really good and the coffee drinks are deelish! You must see Manuel Antonio park. It is about a 20 minute stroll through the park where you see cute monkeys and other exotic animals. Once you get to the end of the park, you get to Manuel Antonio beach which is totally worth it! We had a blast. We also went to playa biesanz which is nice and private. Our trip was at the beginning of rainy season (May 28th-June 1st). I was really anxious about the weather because of the weather reports. I will say this: please disregard what you see on your weather app. It said that it was 100% precipitation and that it would be cloudy and raining every day. The weather was amazing pretty much all day. It would get cloudy in the late evening and it did rain a couple nights, but Costa Rica is so amazing that it didn't even bother us. Especially since we stayed at casa Española. I forgot to mention that they even provide you with 2 cell phones in case you need to get in touch with your concierge! How amazing is that? You can use the phone to make any local calls. So after the first couple days, i was able to call my own taxi lol I’m sure some of the other girls will post a review so you can definitely see how happy we were with our experience! Stay here! You won't be disappointed! To Amy, Geralyn and the rest of the staff at My Vacation Costa Rica, Thank you again for your hard work and the amazing experience!

An amazing place to stay with stunning ocean views from all the rooms. The separate penthouse was incredible, with an enormous patio area for everyone to gather together and watch the sunset, drink in hand. A huge jacuzzi in the corner...push a button and you get a waterfall gushing from the top corner, fabulous! The main apartment below had a pool if you really couldn't drag yourself to the beach. The concierge, was lovely, welcoming and super helpful - thank you. We really didn't want to leave!!

We stayed at the Espanola house, and I was more than pleasantly surprised. It's one thing to see in photos, but waking up every morning to the best ocean view, nature, and beauty all around made our vacation!!! We will come back and recommend others. Our house manager went out of her way for everything, what a great friend. All the little details were taken care of, and we had every luxury of home. I can't say enough...you have to see for your self. Pura vida.

This house is unbelievable! With gorgeous views of Costa Rica and monkeys hanging out in the trees it truly was the quintessential Costa Rica experience. The jacuzzi had a waterfall and the spacious room inside was even more beautiful than the pictures make it look. It was right down the hill from a bus stop to get to the beach or the national park, delicious food, and a short walk to the supermarket. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need in the ways of pots and pans to cook dinners when you want to stay in for the night. You really could not do any better than this!

We rented Casa Espanola for 4 days and the experience was one to remember. The views are incredible (felt like amalfi Coast) crossed with the beautiful sounds of nature. Monkey swang from the trees in front of our eyes and it wasn't unusual for them to pop up on one of the decks to see what we were eating that night! The weather was fantastic, the people couldn't be nicer and amy the property manager was extremely helpful and always there to provide tips about what Costa Rica had to offer! Costa Rica is now on the top of my list as places to re-visit!!!

My family and I have just returned from Costa Rica and are still smiling with the memories of our wonderful vacation.
As we are a large group of extended family (21 in total!) we needed something that would comfortably fit us all - we have found this to be a problem in the past. The house exceeded our expectations and some. It was comfortable, immaculate and huge! We had all the necessary amenities and really couldn't have asked for more. The views over the forest and the ocean were just incredible. Photos we took of the sunset are so amazing they don't look real!
The monkeys never made it as far as our balconies but we did get to see plenty of them. The kids were excited to see them making their way thorough the jungle in the mornings and we often sipped our cocktails listening the howler monkeys at sunset. We also saw more monkeys and sloths down at the main beach and on monkey bridges above main road (remember to look up!).
Finally, a little about amy, the Property Manager. We booked the house directly with amy, who was wonderful from beginning to end. The rental process was fast and simple. She answered all of our questions quickly and she provided really valuable insight into the differences between tours. We booked everything through amy (zip lining, dolphin watch cruise, white-water rafting, surf school, private chef, spa services, restaurant reservations and airport transfers) and everything went wonderfully smoothly. The activities were all safe and age appropriate and everyone in our family had a great time.
In short, amy was indispensable and was the big surprise hit of the rental. She always answer her phone, never made us feel demanding (which I'm afraid we were) and is one of the main reasons this vacation exceed all expectations.
Wholeheartedly recommend this rental. We're already planning our next trip!
