“Resetting the mind and body”
We stayed at Casa Tranquila with 3 adults, 3 teenagers (aged 19, 17 and 14) and 9 year old boy. It was magical from the moment we made contact with the owner, Donald Corvette. The photos on the site do not do the necessary justice to exactly how spectacular the property is. Simply breathtaking. Rooms very spacious, house extremely well equipped and the location, perfect. None of us gained any weight over the holidays as we got plenty exercise walking up the hills in Costa Rica and stayed active with all the amazing excursions (zip lining and ATV'ing our favorites). People very friendly, ALWAYS FELT SAFE, and public transport excellent. Eight days were not enough and the perfect vacation at this spot would need to be 2 weeks. The team at Casa Tranquila are amazing - incredibly accommodating, friendly, authentic and nothing is too much for them to take on.
Response from the owner Shelly and her family perfected the art of "Pura Vida" from their first day. What amazing spirits they have. And they treated Casa Tranquila wis utmost honor and respect. They were so gracious that Nathan's and my biggest challenge was tearing ourselves away from them so they could enjoy their vacation alone. Please come back soon to see us! Donald.
“Great Spring Break!”
Our family of 5 (kids 12, 11 & 7) stayed at Casa Tranquila for spring break this year. We had a fabulous time! Donald, Nathan and staff do an incredible job ensuring your trip is everything you want it to be. The house, with its amazing ocean view, worked out perfectly for our family. Very true to the pictures! There was plenty of space for the kids to play games downstairs (when they weren't swimming in the pool) and the adults enjoyed the view from the upstairs balcony & living room areas. We found the location to be perfect - lots of restaurants within walking distance. What really made our vacation wonderful, though, was the attention that Donald and Nathan put into helping us plan our vacation. Nathan, the concierge, made all of the reservations for our activities. From booking our rental car to all of our adventure activities, we didn't have to worry about a thing! The tour operators they book with are fantastic - we couldn't have had more fun rafting, ziplining, sunset cruising or rappelling our way through Costa Rica! In addition to the tour planning, we had the housekeeper Jessica cook two meals for us at the house. It was great to be able to relax in the house and not have to drag the tired kids out for dinner every night. The first night of our trip Jessica was unavailable, so Donald & Nathan secured a chef from a top rated local restaurant cook for us - delicious! Our kids all developed swimmers' ear while on the trip, so we contacted Donald to see if there was a drugstore we could hit to pick up some ear drops. He quickly set up an appointment for us at a farmacia and even drove us to pick up some medicine! That help was invaluable! What an incredible first visit to Costa Rica. We highly recommend Casa Tranquila!
Response from the owner Thanks for that glowing feedback, Amanda. We love when our friends notice the attention to detail. You and Joe were so helpful along the way, that it made our planning your week very easy. You guys know you are always welcome at Casa Tranquila. I'm really happy Brandon, Connor and Mallory's ears are back to normal! Donald
“Great views, great hosts, wonderful vacation with family!”
We took our 3 adult kids and significant others to Manuel antonio for a wonderful family vacation for a week at the end of January. The weather was beautiful, the area was lush with lots of wildlife to enjoy. We all agreed that our favorite activity was the zip lining (and some of us were afraid of heights) that Donald and Nathan arranged for us. It was amazing! The guys who ran the place were friendly and extremely safety conscious, and the views from run to run were amazing! Don't miss that! We also enjoyed the sunset cruise and 4 wheeler ride, but be prepared to get very dirty from the dust on the roads. Each night we had cocktails somewhere, by the pool, on the beach, or at one of the many restaurants or bars with an amazing view. Our favorite for that was El avion (the airplane restaurant). The food there was good but our 2 favorite dinner spots were the small Italian restaurant on the main road (Nathan and Donald will know the name) and the small restaurant on Three Left Turns road going to the beach (and again I'm blank on the name but Nathan and Donald can help where I am blank). Amazing food especially at the last two! The staff at the Casa were very helpful and friendly and eager to please. Our kids all agreed that it was an amazing vacation!
Response from the owner Thanks for the great feedback, Marty. You and your family were a pleasure to have as Casa Tranquila's guests, and we'll be looking forward to that return visit next year. The Italian restaurant is Victoria's and the Emilio's is on the way to the beach. Both are incredible. Thanks for welcoming us into your family! Donald
“Perfect Week in Costa Rica at Casa Tranquila”
We had a wonderful week with my husband and I and our 3 grown adult children. Casa Tranquila was the perfect place to stay. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the ocean, birds and even the monkeys! Donald and Nathan were wonderful to work with. They thought of everything. 2x's we forgot our keys when we left for a tour and they were waiting for us to open the gates when we returned. My son had a rash and they escorted us to downtown Quepos and introduced us to the pharmacist who gave him everything he needed to get rid of his rash(suntan lotion and heat reaction) Jessica was an excellent maid and cooked an amazing dinner for us when we arrived and a delicious breakfast one morning. We enjoyed white water rafting, zip lining, 10 in 1 rappelling, touring the Manuel antonio Park, and the sunset cruise! It was also relaxing just sitting by our pool enjoying the view! The only bad part of our vacation was that it had to end!
Response from the owner Thanks, Brenda. While we love when our guests rave about Casa Tranquila's views, design and pools, I must say it's extra-special when you notice the effort we put into "being there" for you. We work hard on that. You guys are welcome back anytime you can get here. We loved having you and "The Guys" at Casa Tranquila. And we're always happy to make your "rash decisions" :) Donald
“Best Vacation Ever!”
This was our first visit to Costa Rica and it surpassed all of our expectations! Casa Tranquila was amazing! The home was beautiful with all the amenities one could ask for. Jessica made sure it was cleaned to perfection each and every day! We loved sitting by the pool with the breath-taking view. We loved walking to town, and visiting the great local restaurants. Donald and Nathan were always available to suggest the very best of restaurants. The beach and National Park were beautiful. We couldn't have asked for more... We are already planning our trip back!
Response from the owner WOW, Christi! Thank You. I know how much you and Tim and The Boys have traveled, so to hear Casa Tranquila gave you your "best vacation ever", is an amazing compliment. Your family was great, and I really appreciate your welcoming Nathan and me into it. We'll see you next year. Donald.
“Return to Paradise”
I have been fortunate to have vacationed in Manuel antonio for many years(six times). Your property is exceptional and has stunning views of the ocean and National Park. Jessica & Juan keep the house & pool in a neat clean condition while Nathan offers a wide concierge service to those who are unfamiliar with this area. The house offers many amenities which makes your stay very comfortable and safe. I look forward to returning to Casa Tranquilla thank you Dianne
Response from the owner Thanks, Dianne, for the glowing recommendation! It was such a pleasure to have you, Jerrod, Heather and Little Bode as my guests. We'll look forward to having you again next year; just let us know when you're ready! Donald
We had a great time on our trip - Casa Tranquila was a large part why. Large, comfortable, and well appointed, the home is a terrific place to stay while exploring all that Manuel antonio has to offer. Donald and Nathan were super helpful in organizing our trip and taking care of us while we were there. Jessica, the cook we hired through Donald, was fantastic! Highly recommended.
Response from the owner Thanks for the vote of confidence, Walt! You and your nine family members were ideal guests; it was great bringing in the New Year with you and the entire group. Thanks for all your kindness, and we'll look forward to having you for you 2015 vacation! Donald & Nathan
“Extraordinarily Scenic Home, with a Wonderfully-Infused atmosphe”
This absolutely superb home definitely helps one find "Pura Vida" in Costa Rica!! Whether its from the windows, the pool patio, or the balconies, expansive and beautiful views of the Pacific, tropical rainforest, and islands of Manuel antonio spread out before you. The interior is wonderfully designed with locally modern tropical themes and the living spaces and beautiful outdoors seem to meld as one. The home is conveniently located in Manuel antonio, with access to great restaurants, beaches, and points-of-interest for a wide array of outdoor activities, animal sightseeing, and water sports. Finally, the staff is absolutely great and, at any indication of interest, will immediately help arrange activities with the best companies in the area for your time in Costa Rica. Donald has established this awesome place and his great thoughtfulness for all who visit clearly shows.
Response from the owner Austin & Natalie, Thanks for those great comments. I am thrilled you guys had such a good time. And I love when Casa Tranquila's guests appreciate "the little things". I know you'll be back with your other friends soon; I'm looking forward to seeing you then. Donald
“A great time was had by all!”
The house was great and the staff wonderful. Donald was amazing and reached out to us before we got there with what we wanted to do and then he basically took control and made all of our reservations for dinners, surfing lessons, zip line tours, jet skiing etc! It made everything so easy for us and we were able to relax.
Response from the owner Thanks Tracy. You and your family were incredible guests. It was a great New Year's Celebration together. You know you are welcome back anytime you want to return, and we will hope to see you again in 2014. Donald & Nathan
“Fabulous week in Manuel antonio!”
Our week-long stay at Casa Tranquila was wonderful! Donald was the ultimate host. We arrived after a long day of travel to warm greetings, cold drinks and that magnificent view! We had more than enough space for our family of five and Casa Tranquila was stocked with all the comforts of home. The home is in a great location with only a short walk to the bus stop and many restaurants and shops. We enjoyed many outings but the kids especially loved jumping in the pool when we returned. Donald was always available to answer a question or suggest a restaurant when needed and Jessica made our week truly relaxing. We had the amenities of a hotel in a spacious, private vacation home!
Response from the owner Samantha & Jim, What a pleasure it was to have you at Casa Tranquila. Since you knew everything you all wanted to do, the planning of all your details was so easy prior to your arrival. That made my "job" very simple. Please tell the kids we are looking forward to seeing you all again next year! Donald
