Manuel Antonio villa description

Villa Perezoso is the gem of Manuel Antonio. Awarded Best Vacation Rental in Manuel Antonio for 2011 and 2012 by FlipKey, recipient of over a hundred five-star guest reviews, and featured in Su Casa and Ocean Home, Villa Perezoso promises a Costa Rican getaway you will talk about for years to come.

Boasting a full staff—including a personal chef, a bartender, housekeeping, and an on-site concierge—Villa Perezoso combines the luxury amenities of a five-star resort with the privacy and personalization of an intimate vacation rental that’s wholly yours.

A wall of glass at the front of this five-bedroom, six-bathroom villa ensures that every room faces the lush Costa Rican jungle and the boulder-studded sea. Because the villa is situated on a tropical hillside at the edge of Manuel Antonio National Park, guests regularly spot monkeys, toucans, and the sloths from which Villa Perezoso gets its name.

You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy this dynamic setting, because all gourmet meals, cleaning, tour booking, grocery shopping, and even transportation are taken care of by Villa Perezoso’s prized staff.

Villa Perezoso’s chef, Ober Arroyo, was professionally trained in Madrid, Spain. When you arrive, Chef Ober will meet with you to plan the menu. He is more than happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions. Or just let the chef work his magic—his signature dishes include paella and tres leche cake.

Victor Porras, your 24/7 concierge, is a Costa Rica native and will help you experience the best of your surroundings. Many guests don’t leave the property, and we don’t blame them. However, if your group is eager for excursions, you can zip-line or raft down a river through the rainforest, or take it a little easier and walk down to the beach or nearby café. Whatever your choice, you won’t need a car—Victor will take care of all the transportation details for you.

Every room in the 6,000-square-foot Villa Perezoso features handcrafted furnishings and accessories from Bali, such as solid hardwood furniture and vibrant fabrics—details that add to the feeling of luxury and immersion in total beauty. Most rooms also have attached terraces extending out into the jungle, with more than enough lounge chairs for your entire group.

Sumptuous, first-level lodging options include the exceptional Grand Master Suite, with its king canopy bed, yoga/meditation space, iPod docking station, flatscreen TV, air conditioning, and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide magnificent views of the jungle. Get even closer to nature by taking a book and a coffee onto the furnished private terrace. The en suite bathroom offers a private, glass-door shower, so you can duck under the spray and look out over the rainforest and the ocean.

Two more Master Suites also have private decks, air-conditioning, flatscreen TVs, docks for your iPod, ceiling fans, and large en suite bathrooms. One of these has a king bed, the other has two doubles.

On the second level, an open living space is fitted with floor-to-ceiling glass doors to keep the lush Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio National Park in view. These doors open up to a wrap-around terrace with a pool, cushioned Balinese teak lounge chairs, and outdoor dining table—all spots where wildlife are known to frolic. The living area provides ample seating, a dining table for 12 plus a bar, a gourmet kitchen where Chef Ober crafts his epicurean delights, a large full bathroom, and an air-conditioned entertainment room with three additional sofas and 42-inch plasma TV.

We call the third level The Penthouse. This space houses two more master suites, plus a full living area with a second gourmet kitchen (a great place to fix a snack or a cup of coffee), and views of the Pacific extending from one side and the jungle from the other.

The fourth level—the Penthouse Loft and Sun Deck—is reached from a grand circular staircase and is encased in glass for 280-degree views. From the rooftop terrace, you can sink into the Jacuzzi tub with your signature cocktail and watch the sunset fade into a twinkling night sky. To experience the bird’s eye views of the sun terrace is to capture the essence of Manuel Antonio. We also recommend this spot for an in-house massage—Victor will help arrange one for you.

In short, the award-winning Villa Perezoso presents captivating views, gourmet meals, your own on-site personal concierge, and up-close-and-personal experiences with wildlife that you’ll never forget.

Search Villa Perezoso on YouTube for a full tour—of course, no camera can capture its beauty, but it’s a start.

As you would imagine, the calendar fills fast. Book your indulgent Manuel Antonio getaway at Villa Perezoso today. Sleeps 10-12. Top Rated by TripAdvisor. 2, 3 and 5 bedroom rental option.

                                        The house, the team, the locale are all incredible. The place was clean, beautiful, and exceeded our expectations. We were treated like royalty but felt like family. The activities (surfing - see Randall at the house!, canopy zipline, sport fishing, and more) recommended were superb - this team knows how to take care of you. The owner (Seda) is considerate, and has spent many hours creating a retreat that is five star. She has a keen eye for what it takes to create a memorable experience, and she and her local team deliver. And the wildlife is all around - and breathtaking. Unqualified recommendation, and by the way, we intend to return!

                                        Owner response: Thank you Brad for the kind words…we always hope that our design and plan of making Villa Perezoso a memorable vacation experience for a lifetime for our guests comes through---we all can't wait for your return. Loved your photos--those monkeys!!

                                        I usually don't write reviews unless I think it's justified. In this case it is. We went down with 5 couples, who are all friends, and absolutely loved our stay at Villa Perezoso. The staff and villa were both 1st class. Victor, our onsite concierge, was very helpful in arranging travel and excursions and made the billing process very simple and easy. The chef staff of Over and Randall were fantastic. We ate like kings each day. The villa was extremely clean and modern. Anytime you blindly book a villa like this, it's always risky. However, Villa Perezoso is a home run. We left having no regrets and feeling like the price we paid was more than worth it.

                                        The house is amazing. Victor, Randall, Ober, and the cleaning crew are all amazing. Victor is always available and very knowledgeable about the house and the area. He arranged all of our excursions and taxis for the whole trip and they were all great. The food and service from Randall and Ober were second to none. They were willing to accommodate us with any request we had. They are genuinely nice people and pampered us all week long. The house is gorgeous. All of the rooms are very spacious with nice bathrooms and beds. My only tip about the house is that only the bedrooms are air conditioned. All of the common areas don't have AC so they get hot including the kitchen and dining room. I actually got used to it and it didn't bother me much but keep that in mind. The AC in the rooms keeps them as cold as you like though. You will see bugs in the house. That's part of life in Costa Rica, but again the staff kept the house in great condition and very clean. I would recommend this without hesitation.

                                        Owner response: We are so happy you enjoyed our home and our wonderful staff. A clarification about AC…the large entertainment TV room on the dining room/living room level does have AC--and is a perfect place to relax with 3 large sofas. The main living room/dining/kitchen area have floor to ceiling glass doors that open out to the deck and pool area and most guests like to leave them open as they spend a lot of time sitting outside making having AC in those rooms nearly impossible. There are multiple ceiling fans in this area to help with the cooling down. March is our hottest month (and most popular); I'm glad you were pampered by the staff! Hope to see you back.

                                        Thank you so much for the incredible stay we had at Villa Perezoso!! The home was beautiful, clean and well maintained. The staff took such good care of us. Victor was very professional, went above and beyond to take care of our needs, and his warmth was so refreshing. Ober and Randall made us the best food ever! Some of our best memories will be the delicious meals you made!! It was so wonderful to be pampered all week and not have to worry about a thing. We enjoyed the beach every day, we did the canopy hipline, Manuel Antonio National Park, and Rafiki rafting--all well worth it and amazing adventures. To come back to a private home each day after our outings, take a dip in the pool, and enjoy Ober and Randall's guacamole and chips and smoothies every night before dinner was a special treat.Thank you, thank you, thank you for such an amazing week.Costa Rica and Villa Perezoso far exceeded our expectations in every way! Pura Vida!

                                        We weren't loping for a typical beach vacation--we wanted adventure and wildlife added to our rest and relaxation. Manuel Antonio and Villa Perezoso exceeded our expectations and taught us the meaning of pura vida! I have traveled extensively worldwide throughout my life and do all my own travel planning. It is something I enjoy. I initially found the Villa using vrbo.com, after weeks of looking at every villa rental in the area--we wanted the "best". The fact that VP has a full staff, and eery review about the villa and staff is outstanding determined our selection decision. The owner's friendly, quick, and informative responses to our email questions further reinforced our decision to go with Villa Perezoso. Her website for the villa is excellent! She's built a luxurious , beautiful home for everyone to enjoy. Victor, Over, Randall and Cecelia work so well together to provide a level of service you would receive from the finest resort. We spent many hours laughing and becoming friends. They all have warm, welcoming personalities so that interaction feels immediately comfortable. They meet every need without feeling intrusive. Because Victor has been involved with the home from construction to present time, it is evident he takes pride in maintaining the villa to the highest level of beauty, comfort, and service. We planned to eat dinner out occasionally, but that never happened after experiencing the food and drink of Ober and Randall. They even graciously age us several cooking/bartending lessons! Cecilia is quiet and always wearing a smile, providing a tidy home. The views from the villa couldn't be better! Not only is there a beautiful view of the ocean, the trees are the perfect height and variety to allow almost constant wildlife sightings! We were so lucky, we saw the toucans, sloth and monkeys multiple times a day--every day! The howlers even paid a visit one afternoon. We enjoyed our excursions (all booked by Victor); our time in Costa Rica,and are already planning our next trip! Pura Vida.

                                        There is not a hotel or another villa, that compares to you. Your professionalism shows in the work you do and the treatment of your guests. We are already planning a trip for next year. Best word for the staff here is "awesome".

                                        Villa Perezoso is pure enchantment --From the moment the gracious and personal staff greets you at the door with tropical refreshments to your first stroll through the villa and out to the pool -- to behold the breathtaking views of the Pacific ocean and magnificent sunsets. The Balinese decor and serene setting is inviting beyond imagination--with the villa's layout ideal for a small or a large group. Perfectly designed and managed---Villa Perezoso deliciously caters to your every whim and desire. The gourmet cuisine, the creative cocktails and fine wine, the wonderful staff -- and ALL they do to ensure your best possible vacation, is AMAZING. AND let's not forget the monkeys who make it their business to wish you a great day...every morning! Get ready to be spoiled.

                                        Owner response: So so honored by this….the staff loved having you all and we hope you will come back again to our slice of paradise.

                                        From the moment you get to the property, you will experience luxury vacationing at its best, breathtaking views, personable & knowledgable staff, and a sense that your stay will be nothing but the best! I had my family join me for my son's birthday and his first time to Costa Rica so we occupied the entire villa. There were children that ranged from 6 to 16. Surprisingly, the home is very "kid friendly" even at its opulence. A full time staff not only equips the house, but adds to the value and comfort of the home. Villa Perezoso would not be as spectacular without the staff. Victor, the house manager is amazing! He is always on top of everything. He manages to always please and accommodate your every need and want meticulously. Ober and Randall make the perfect team at meal times. Ober prepared some of the best meals I've ever had! His desserts are delicious too! Randall sets the mood, prepares fresh assortments of drinks and always makes sure everyone's palate is happy. Cecilia and her team work hard to make sure your home away from home is spic and span. She is extremely detailed orientated. The staff at Villa Perezoso will make it very difficult to say goodbye and return home. From the decor to the views, the luxury linens and towels to the small details, like the imprinted leaves on the stairs the villa itself is gorgeous. Pictures in my opinion do not do the villa justice. You have to see it for yourself! The location of the home is central to the beach and to Quepos. I walked to many places and cabbed to others. The villa is located at the bottom of a steep hill but most everything in Manuel Antonio is! There are plenty of restaurants (but with Ober you will probably never experience them), a casino, open bars, shops, bank, and more within a 7 - 10 minute walking distance. I have to say this has probably been my best vacation yet. The villa is a must see and the staff a must meet! We unflinchingly give a glowing 5-star review, and we cannot recommend their place highly enough.

                                        Owner response: We are all very humbled and touched by this. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope to see you back.

                                        Our children and grandchildren booked Villa Perezoso as a surprise gift for our whole family to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. It could not have been a more perfect venue for the 2014 New Years week. We were treated so beautifully by the staff...who truly seemed more like friends and family than staff. Victor, the house manager/concierge was tireless in his commitment to organizing complicated excursions as well as rides to nearby beaches. He even included several of our more fitness oriented family members in his morning run up and down hills and along the local beach! Ober, the super gifted chef and Randall, his affable teammate put together such great meals that we quickly abandoned any ideas of dining out at local restaurants. The cleaning personnel, lead by Cecilia did a lovely job of maintained the house daily. The twice daily appearance of white-faced and red -backed squirrel monkeys added to the absolute delight of our stay at Villa Perezoso! All of us...from the 6 year old, 2 teenaged boys, and three adult couples left feeling that we had the BEST time EVER!

                                        Owner response: So so so happy to hear that you had a great vacation here at Villa Perezoso! We loved the "sad faces" photo taken upon your departure, thanks for letting us share it on FB. We hope you will be able to return.

                                        "Luxury Villa" barely describes this amazing place. We were greeted by the (full) staff with a tray of our favorite drinks, the aroma of the most delicious dinner cooking in the kitchen and views that literally take your breath away. Our party of 11 were treated to beautiful, tastefully decorated rooms, each with views from it's own private balcony. You are really right in the rainforest. Each level of the villa gives a different perspective and view. Each morning we were greeted with monkey's antics and sounds of the forest coming waking up. We saw monkey's (everyday) sloths and toucans and much, much more. But the most spectacular thing about this completely spectacular villa is it's outstanding staff. Victor, Over, Randall and Cecilia. They are the heart and soul of this villa. Victor was amazing and helpful and a wealth of knowledge and information. He took care of our all needs and had wonderful suggestions. Over's cooking skills rival any chef on the strip (we are from Las Vegas). He is creative and very concerned all our food preferences were met. Randall is a true gentlemen. Every afternoon, I would look forward to him blending my favorite drinks (all from fresh fruit and ingredients).He makes everyone feel like they are his best friend. Cecilia cleaned up after us everyday (not an easy or pleasant task with 5 young men) with the most beautiful smile. We can't wait to go back to this beautiful country, stay in this beautiful villa and see our beautiful friends.

                                      About the owner: Ex-entrepreneur from the corporate world marries oral surgeon. Oral surgeon retires to spend more time in Costa Rica. Now doing what we really love to do...specializing in the vacation marketplace and enjoying life. Loves include travel, villa interior design (importing furnishings and accessories from Bali), marketing our villa property and fixing things! Our goal is to create the perfect vacation experience for our guests. We love what we do, LOVE Manuel Antonio, and hope to have the pleasure of helping you with your vacation, villa needs.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
                                      To us, Manuel Antonio is as close to paradise as it gets. Our dream was to someday live in a tropical haven, near the beach and somewhere not too far from 'home' (California). Having traveled nearly all the continents and vacationed on many of the worlds' best islands and tropical destinations, upon arriving in Manuel Antonio in November of 2003, we knew we had to live there someday. Not only was the place magical, the views heavenly, the beaches some of the best we've ever encountered but the friendliness of the people of Costa Rica, the emphasis on preserving their beautiful country, we knew when we arrived that we were hooked and that we wanted to make Costa Rica our next home. We found a gorgeous property with some of the best views we have encountered, bought it and started building. With Bali being another favorite destination of ours, we wanted to bring what we loved about Bali to Costa Rica--from the feeling of living outdoors to using natural materials and woods and stones to the top notch service they provide their guests. Our architect did a beautiful job taking our vision and in creating Villa Perezoso (named for the resident sloth), with every room having distinctive ocean and jungle views. We travelled to Bali to have all the furniture and accessories custom built for the property and had it transported to Costa Rica. It was a labor of love building it from the ground up and we love the finished product as do our guests.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                      Simply stated, our staff. From our charming house manager/butler who always has a smile on his face and has lived in the area and worked in the hotel industry for over 20 years and who is here to serve you 24/7, to our world trained full time chef, to our favorite drink mixologist, and our never in the way sweet housekeeping staff, you will be pampered beyond your imagination. You will never have to lift a finger here at Villa Perezoso as we will do all the lifting for you! Whether it's to.... go food shopping, clean up, prepare and serve the most tasty, gourmet meals, to the drink making, to advice on the best activities or local culture, to running an errand or getting that extra bottle of rum, our staff will take care of it all. We also love that nature beckons right outside, I personally love the monkey visits and am always excited on seeing a 'perezoso' in the nearby guarumo tree. If I could pick out two of my favorite things about Villa Perezoso is 1) the staff and how they spoil us and our guests and 2) the openness of each of the rooms (especially the bathrooms with floor to ceiling glass doors that open up allowing you to shower looking out to the vast jungle and pacific ocean. Its a slice of paradise found. And, the wildlife that you will experience at the Villa will make you feel as if you were in your very own National Geographic movie!
