If you want an escape from the everyday, consider our Manuel Antonio vacation Villa in Costa Rica and experience a little slice of paradise. This Manuel Antonio Villa offers visitors close proximity to world-class beaches and magnificent views from La Vista of beautiful sunsets with Cathedral Point as a backdrop. From this Manuel Antonio vacation Villa, you can explore all the charm of Costa Rica with rafting down the wilds of the Naranjo River, or hiking in the Manuel Antonio National Park. 24 of the 27 major adventure activities offered in Costa Rica are available in Manuel Antonio so there is little need to waste your vacation time traveling to and from other areas.

As you explore Manuel Antonio, take in the amazing combination of lush vegetation and spectacular scenery. This Manuel Antonio vacation Villa gives you access to a part of the world few people get to see. Known for its exotic beauty and wildlife, Manuel Antonio houses a myriad of interesting creatures including sloths, iguanas, raccoons, white-faced and howler monkeys, and the unique endangered squirrel monkey called Titi -- all frequently visit the area around La Vista. Although the location offers a glimpse into the majesty of the rainforest, Manuel Antonio also allows vacationers to enjoy exquisite cuisine in many nearby restaurants like Barba Roja for seafood (within walking distance), La Mariposa Hotel for fine dining, Ronny's Place, voted best sunset view, or Emilio's (within walking distance) for some awesome desserts!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Our names are Nancy and Steve Dunlap and we currently live in TN, near Chattanooga. My husband and I built Villa la Vista in 1998 after falling in love with Costa Rica while vacationing there. We especially loved Manuel Antonio and knew that when we retired we would love to spend the Winter months looking out over the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean. Our dream has finally come true (we retired in 2010) and we now spend as much time as possible enjoying our property. We hope that you will also enjoy this beautiful, friendly country and will want to return again and again. Pura Vida!

Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
We chose Manuel Antonio due to its natural beauty. We also love wildlife and the exotic animals and birds that can be seen in this area are a wildlife lovers dream come true.
