Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio: Manuel Antonio Park is hands-down the nicest beaches in all of Costa Rica and hands down the best cuisine among all the hotels and restaurants. From outstanding sushi (Quepos is a fishing village!) to a variety of curried Mahi-mahi dishes, tapas and drink specialties. This house is the CHEAPEST, American styled home you'll find in this region for 6 to 8 people. I chose it to help budget travelers see an awesome, awesome area and use the money to stay another week!
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: 5 minutes to the beach by bus, don't need a car. Walk to restaurants and night life. Save money. If it had the ocean view it would be $2,000 per week. Make no mistake! the finest views you'll get every day when you dine in the hotels and use their pools with all the money you will save! We offer great tour packages to my waterfall as well!
