Manuel Antonio villa description

We are the EXCLUSIVE PROPERTY MANAGERS and DIRECT RENTAL AGENTS for this home. This means you have come right to the source and there is no better contact to speak to than us. We are onsite here in Manuel Antonio and are the same company responsible for your arrival, meet and greet and travel planning. Look no further, you can be assured that you will be in the best hands with us.

Located within a private gated community, guests of Villa Paraiso are assured privacy, luxury and tranquility, in an easily accessible area with paved roads and ample parking for guests.

Previously featured in “Su Casa” magazine, Costa Rica´s Leading Architectural Digest, Villa Paraiso feels like what an authentic, Costa Rican, tropical, rainforest home should feel like! Such thoughtful details throughout the home will not be found elsewhere – from the exterior covered walkways, reminiscent of the old homes during the Quepos “banana plantation era”, the grand open-air atrium, complete with towering palm tree, to the genuine Chicharrón cooking bowl, acting as a bathroom sink, this villa will host your ideal Costa Rican experience.

Spaciously spread out over 8,500 square feet, Villa Paraiso is perfect for larger groups of friends and family, entertaining, and special events. The home’s exterior offers generous outdoor terraces with extended views of the coastline. There is a 75 feet long infinity edge pool to cool off and relax in, and an outdoor grill area.

                      • Quepos drapes itself across a tropical inlet surrounded by primary rainforest. Formally mangrove vegetation, Quepos was originally inhabited by the Quepoa Indians, who demised in the late 1800´s. Gradually the mangroves gave way to infrastructure as the development of banana plantations in the area, and later African palms, led to Quepos coming to prominence as a port town. Despite limited accessibility to the area, by the 1960s word of the natural beauty within the region had begun to spread, attracting adventurous travelers, surfers, and sport fishing captains, including the Captain Bill Gannon who helped spearhead Costa Rica's catch and release program. Established in 1972, the Manuel Antonio National Park remains Costa Rica's smallest, yet the diversity of wildlife within its borders are unequaled. With 109 species of mammals and 184 species of birds, National Geographic has recognized the zone as one of the most biologically diverse in the world. The beautiful beaches, tropical rainforests and incredible variety of wildlife attract sun-lovers, nature enthusiasts, deep-sea fishermen and those seeking adventure and relaxation alike. Today, as a year-round tourism destination, Quepos fills to the brim with families, fishermen, honeymooners, surfers, eco-tourists, and jet-setters alike. The friendly locals are tremendous hosts of their culture, going out of their way to make sure everyone has a good time. The Quepos town centre consists of about a six-block square of restaurants, bars, hotels, bakeries, clothing and book stores, art galleries and gift shops. Quepos is linked to the Manuel Antonio National Park and public beach area by a main road, between which, locals and visitors can find just about everything. Bio-corridors, known locally as 'monkey highways', run throughout the area, allowing monkeys to travel safely up and down the coast along linked rope systems. Now home to an increasingly international community, visitors often purchase homes to enjoy the quality lifestyle and tranquil environment, year after year. The area offers a rich variety of leisure pursuits including community events, water sports, sailing, fishing, fine dining, conservation projects, and outdoor activities....moreless

                        Our group rented Casa Paraiso for five nights ending april 4, 2014. Everything was perfect. We rented through Luxury Retreats. The on-site assistance from Dallas and her team was fantastic. The shuttle from the San Jose Costa Rica airport to the villa went flawlessly. It could not be any better. On arrival at the villa, Dallas was there to explain the features of the villa and attend to any other need. She was professional, attentive and very timely with all her responses, setting up rental vehicles, excursions and other items. The highlight was our private chef, Klaus Thalau. He was a true artist, 6 star food each day, made to perfection, menus crafted by Klaus based on our preferences, we had themed evenings. He is a humble man who clearly is passionate about perfection. 40 years of experience shows. The villa was very clean and in excellent condition, well maintained and with everything you could need. Daily housekeeping and personal laundry each day. Heaven is an understatement.

                        The Villa was fantastic. 5 star accommodations. The concierge was very helpful and responded immediately to all our calls. One big reason we chose this villa was because of its location. There was so many activities close by. There were no hidden costs. I highly recommended this property

                        It can be challenging coordinating a vacation for many people. We had those interested in the beach and those interested in adventure and those most interested in relaxing. This Villa was more beautiful than billed and our property manager, Dallas, did an excellent job of organizing transportation and trips as well stocking our kitchen with awesome foods.. relaxing? (check) This was the ideal property for our large group. It had everything. We loved it and will come back. Thank you!

                        If you think the pictures capture how beautiful this villa is, wait until you stay here. The Sunsets were amazing. We saw monkeys, birds, fireflies and so much more. Villa Paradiso is amazing. We had a party of six and never were in each others way. Will go back as soon as I can.

                        Casa Paraiso is the most beautiful home we have ever stayed in. The house was designed and furnished by a very talented architect. Everything about this home is first class, including the concierge, the chef, and the house keepers. The concierge even rushed us to the pharmacy when my 10 month old son had an allergic reaction to peanut butter! Perfect place to bring your family or for a kid free weekend with couples. We loved waking up every morning to gorgeous weather and the beautiful ocean as a backdrop to the house. All shops and restaurants are in walking distance as well. Couldn't imagine a more perfect vacation.

                        We stayed for a full week in august and had an amazing time!! This was one of the first big trips that I took with my girlfriend with a bunch of friends and people that I knew before her...she was nervous, excited, anxious, and ready to meet everyone!(but did have a few reservations!) When we pulled in, we were greeted by the great staff and that helped her relax a good bit. The staff cannot be commended enough at how well they run the place and how accommodating they are to the guests. The house is located half way between Quepos and Manuel antonio and is perfectly situated to be able to go and see both. If you want to drive down to Quepos and go to El Gran Escape (little fishing restaurant) or the local liquor store, it only takes 10 minutes and is an easy drive! If you want to go to the beaches at Manuel antonio or to La Mariposa for a cocktail at happy hour it is easy as well and less than 10 minutes. (The rooftop pool at La Mariposa is great during happy hour and you can even see a group of monkeys that come to the local swim-up bar and hang out.) The best part of the house is the view from the infinity pool and pool deck. There is nothing better than sitting on the sun-shelf in a chair and looking out over the expansive pacific ocean... it is absolutely breathtaking and worth every penny that the house was rented for that week. The house is perfectly situated in the neighborhood and was relatively secluded when we were there, there was no house within eyesight of the backyard and pool area. Also, the outdoor shower was a "must have" for our sandy and salty trips back from the beach. It is also amazing how easy it is to go and do a day trip somewhere or an excursion. The staff handled all of that and made it so easy to sign up and pay for the trips. Not to mention, we had an awesome time with our three excursions that we did, all recommended by the staff: ATV tour, white water rafting, and a zip line canopy tour. There's nothing that compares!

                        The Villa Paraiso is most aptly named. The Spanish word for paradise, that's exactly what you think you've entered when you walk through the doors of this villa. Our party of 10 had an incredible time. The accommodations were first class. The house was elegant, yet very comfortable. Housekeeping took care of all the details, including our personal laundry, in a timely and very efficient manner. The highlight of our stay, besides the wonderful memories we made on our daughter's 30th birthday, was the food prepared with love each meal by our personal chef Klaus Thalau. First Class Villas is very lucky to have such a kind person and talented chef associated with it's properties. Our transportation too and from the airport was provided and arranged by our concierge, Dallas Boyd. If we needed something~they provided it. All and all I would highly recommend this property or any of the others managed by First Class. I'm giving them 5 stars for everything. If they had a star chart for wildlife sightings, I'd give them another 5! We saw monkeys, toucans, hawks, sloths, and more colorful birds than you could ever imagine on or near this property. If you get the chance to go to Costa Rica, the Villa Paraiso in Quepos is as good as it gets. Pura Vida at it's finest!

                        Cr First Class Villas staff made our wedding preparation and actual event a smooth process. We were able to enjoy our families and friends and not worry about a single thing during the event. They have a trustworthy network of professionals, from John the photographer, who is fantastic, to house staff, hair and makeup stylist and of course Klaus the Chef who is amazing!!! Everyone is very talented and committed to do the best they can to make your experience memorable and perfect. they make everything seem easy and things just happen without you having to ask. The planning was smooth and easy, working with Donielle was enjoyable and we got what we asked and they exceeded expectations in the execution, the decorations were amazing, the service impeccable and the overall ambiance was cozy and friendly, so our guests enjoyed 100% Working with Dallas was very pleasant, she accommodated last minute requests very effectively and once again, they have a solid network of people providing the same quality of service in the area so they can react to changes successfully. Dallas was there for the entire event and she made things happened seamlessly...we completely forgot about everything and felt as if we were at home... We spent 3 nights in Villa Paraiso

                        Villa Paraiso was a great set up for a group of couples. Each room was separate with its own bath. The common space was perfect for all to gather --- inside or outside. Loved the floor plan and architecture. Make sure you get a private chef. Makes for a true luxury vacation.

                        We stayed at Casa Paraiso, for one week with 4 couples in July 2013. The house was fantastic. It was exactly as described and the pictures were accurate. The house was designed with several master bedrooms, so no one was left disappointed. The house was a 20 minute walk to Quepos, but you needed a car to get to the Manuel antonio beach. The best part was our concierge, Dallas, she happily and expertly, arranged our chef, drivers, retaurants and activities. The only disappointment would be that the house didn't have any screens on the doors, so the doors were closed or the bugs were in.
