“Home Sweet Home!”
This is our 2nd time to call Casa Mono Congo home. I told Terry and Pete that my dream was to own this home. My family thinks this is heaven on earth. Every detail from picking us up at the airport to safely arriving us back there is taken care of by Pete, Terry, and their staff. Once we are at the house, Jose is there for every thing we need. Since no one in our party speaks Spanish, we pick up the phone and call Jose with all of our wants. He gladly provides everything we ask for. He is also an amazing cook. Our 17 and 19 year olds say this is the best place they have ever been. We can not wait to come back home again.
“Another day in paradise”
Our family stayed here for the 8th time this year and it is still as amazing as ever!! We call it our home away from home and are so grateful to be able to travel to this paradise each year. The staff at the house took such good care of us- like we were a part of their family. If you want to experience paradise is a beautiful home overlooking the jungle and the ocean- this is the place to go!! Pura Vida!
This is our fourth time in Costa Rica and the first time at Casa Mono Congo. The house made the vacation! It is an amazing place - the pool, patios, and balconies connect you to the jungle, and the bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens are comfortable and luxurious. This is the perfect place to stay in Manuel antonio, and we'll be back again in the future. By the way, Terry (the owner) is really nice to work with to set up the stay, and the people on-site (maid, pool-guy, house manager) were all very friendly and there to help when we needed something.
“Perching in Paradise”
I had not been to Costa Rica previously and had really know idea what to expect. Pete, Terry and their staff made the trip a breeze! The house was absolutely fabulous. I could have spent the whole trip in the lovely pool. The outting to the spice plantation was terrific! My companions went on the zipline canopy tour and raved about it when they got back. The only problem was I had to come back home to Minnesota...
“Spectacular property with an even-better view”
Casa Mono Congo is a drop-dead gorgeous four bedroom home in Barrio Manuel antonio. Away from the most touristy hotels in Manuel antonio, but close to restaurants and markets, the location is perfect. And as it is situated on a hill, the view of the Pacific Ocean and beaches below is just gorgeous. Plenty of wildlife abounds; we saw both spider and capuchin monkeys nearly every day. The house itself has every mod con imaginable and is just impeccably comfortable. From the outdoor grill to the full stocked kitchen to the individual a/C units in each bedroom to the rooftop wet bar... Casa Mono Congo has it all.
Our family stayed at Casa Mono Congo for the 4th time in January. It is without question our favorite place in the world. The house is absolutely gorgeous with spectacular views of the pacific ocean and monkeys that visit every day. Nature surrounds you. The staff is superb from the house manager to the maid and gardener. The location is just a short walk to some of the best resturants in Manuel antonio our favorites are aqua azul and Salsipuedes. The area is extremely safe a great spot for the kids. The beach is very close and the park is a must. Cozy, clean, with every modern convenience I can't thank Terry and Pete enough for sharing their wonderful vacation home with our family. We look forward to coming back again next year. The Regan's
“A Modern Paradise”
Costa Rica in December is my kind of December: 70's temperature, breath-taking terrain, and relaxation or wild fun depending on what your mood is. What really made my trip just even a bit more amazing was... Casa mono Congo! I had seen pictures of this house, and the views it had to offer, but they do little to prepare you for what you actually get to experience once there. This house is a modern paradise set on the ocean facing hill-sides of Manuel antonio. Though, I wasn't at first sure about the bright colors of Casa Mono I found it added to the jazzed feeling of being in Costa Rica; like Christmas decorations do for the Christmas holiday. I imagined going to Costa Rica and not caring where I stayed because I'd be so enamored by the landscape and activities I had planned to do. However, the first (and last night) of our stay at Casa Mono we decided to stay in, cook a nice dinner, and make use of the many amazing views offered by any of the balconies this place had. It was like you'd think you'd seen the last room and amazing sea side views the house had when you'd stumble across another room. The rooms all had their own over-sized spa style bathrooms, and showers that left you feeling a bit..."in the mood." There are many things I could continue to write, but I doubt this would get read then. The point to take away is... This place made Costa Rica that much more enjoyable when you'd think it couldn't possibly be. The owners are very accommodating, and have a great staff on hand for any of your needs. Stay here!! It's worth it!!
Response from the owner Thanks John for taking the time to write such a great review. We look forward to your next visit to Costa Rica and Casa Mono Congo.
“Can't Wait To Go Back To Mono Congo Villa!!!”
Through friends, we were told about their relaxing, comfortable and fun time staying at this villa with their family. They highly recommended it as a clean, spacious, well-appointed vacation home with an amazing view from every window of the the jungle and Pacific Ocean. After staying there in august, we completely agree and can't wait to go back! An excellent place to stay in the Manuel antonio Park area. The casa is situated away from the busy road which was nice but was accessible to nightlife nearby. We especially liked the agua azul restaurant! We were even able to walk to a local grocery and shop for ourselves - though a shopper is available from what we understand. Another perk was that we were even provided with a consierge who arranged a great canopy zipline tour that was well worth the price!! We also walked to the spectacular Manuel antonio Park, but there is also public transportation/ busses that wil take you there in minutes. And then there's the monkeys that come by (at least) once a day - or did for us the week we were there. I can't even begin to tell you how cool that was. They are fascinating to watch as they drape them selves on the rails and they even played in the hammock! I also saw a Mono Congo / Howler Monkey in the branches sleeping in a tree next to to the house. Oh, and we loved the patio on the third floor! It was a great place to lounge, nap, take in the beautiful view, listen to the waves, sip drinks from the ajoining bar, tan - to just destress. And we did! Thanks to our hosts who gave us a happy and memorable experience. I wonder if you too will find yourself saying "Wow!" at every turn at Casa Mono Congo-Howler Monkey Villa.
“We had a wonderful time!”
We totally enjoyed our vacation & our hosts were very helpful. The Onlyh negative for us was that we had to watch our babies (1, 3 & 4) very carefully because of the pool, etc. but you have to know that going in. It is a gorgeous villa & we loved it and would go back again - knowing that we would still have to guard the children carefully!
Response from the owner The DelGozzo extended family were referred to us by a friend. We always appreciate referrals because that is the best type of advertising. Before departing, the DelGozzo's wrote in our guest book: "We had an awesome time! Our sunset cruise was fabulous. We saw dolphins & loved swimming in the coves. The canopy tour was great & we would do it again. We will miss our monkeys!" We hope you are able to return again so the children may enjoy the many activities offered in the Manuel Antonio area. Thanks for the review Alice.
