Located just 3 minutes drive from the world class beaches of Manuel Antonio, this new design captures a cooling ocean breeze that other villas can only pretend to have. The spacious master suite is fit for a king with 2 private balconies to witness the spectacular tropical view & the ever present wildlife. Space and comfort will not be a problem as the villa is 2000 sq feet on 3 levels. The master bedroom, private bath and walk-in closet are on the top level with 12 foot ceilings. The main living space has direct views of the private swimming pool and outdoor area with comfortable sun loungers. The kitchen is a masterpiece with hardwood cabinets and granite counter tops. A second bedroom is located on the lower floor with marble floors and a private bathroom. All levels have fans and AC and both bedrooms have king size beds with cotton sheets. We have experience in looking after you.
The master bedroom occupies the whole of the top floor and has balcony on both sides with quadruple sliding doors. There is a fantastic breeze blowing through the villa during the day.

Awesome place with amazing views
Awesome place with amazing views
I traveled with three other people back to Manuel Antonio for my birthday, and we stayed in the Casa Luz for a week. This is my favorite beach destination to date, which keeps me coming back. I didn't want to stay in a hotel this time, and chose the convenience of a house. I definitely was not disappointed. I can't say enough good things about Casa Luz. To start, the owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and has made sure that all the basics are provided for - cookware, towels, etc - so all you need to do is pick up some food at the market. He is also a great source of information about the area, and can help set up tours if desired. The view of the jungle landscape off the balcony is breathtaking - one that I wish I could wake up to every morning! We ended up seeing monkeys, toucans, sloths, iguanas, and various other creatures just sitting outside eating every day. There are great views in every room of the house, and the property is quiet, well-maintained and conveniently located near the bus stop (only a 10 min ride or less to the beach) if you don't have your own transportation. There are a few little convenience stores along the road by the house for the basics, and a larger store not far from it as well as a great little place for breakfast - Cafe Emilio. We spent a day in Manuel Antonio park, and although we saw some of the local wildlife, I ended up seeing more right in our own backyard. If you want to go on a beach vacation, I would highly recommend the option of renting Casa Luz. I will be going back again, hopefully this year!

Best Vacation ever !Guest comment entered by owner
Best Vacation ever !
We rented Casa Tipoha and it was the best decision we made. This home is everything you hope for…space…TV…WIFI….big bathrooms, great kitchen….big bedrooms! I was able to cook meals for our family as the kitchen was first-rate with an oven and microwave. I cannot say enough about this house! My husband enjoyed waking up before everyone else and sitting by the pool watching the wildlife. The huge lizards (Iguanas and magnificent birds) were something else. This was the best place for our Costa Rica vacation — the location and Olivier and Glen the house manager made this a truly magical vacation for our family. Please know we have a 16 and 14-year old and they will probably bank this vacation as the best in their lives —forever. Glen attended to our every need…including calling for a taxi and our request for a destination. Also, the tour companies know this house so when you need them to come by the house to deliver anything they know the home. Olivier! Thank you so much for an absolutely magical vacation for our family. Eva

This was one of our best family vacations! Let me get the con out of the way. The drive on our own was a bit long after our flight and you have to adjust to no street signs but the landmarks (soccer field, supermarket, etc) in the direction. This is only if you are renting a car and driving down yourself. The pros are that you arrive to this beautiful home with 3 spacious floors and your own private pool! We were so comfortable and relaxed. The first morning, after our breakfast in the yard, we saw a family of Cappuccine monkeys come swinging into the trees. Then the next day, a pair of colorful toucans! Our boys, 11 and 9, were in heaven! The owner, Olivier (Hi, hi!) recommended a wonderful rafting place that we highly recommend! Dinner at Aqua Azul and Mar Luna were delicious! We spotted sloths at the M.A. Nacional Parque. The beaches there were gorgeous! We really had a wonderful time and all thanks to Olivier and his beautiful Casa Tipoha! Pura vida!

We just returned from a week long vacation at the Casa Tipoha. This house was fantastic....even better then the pictures. Oliver the owner was so friendly and accomodating. He set up all of our excursions so we were just picked up and dropped off right at our front door. We read that a car was needed but we took the chance and didnt rent one. We found if very easy to get around. There is a great bus that runs about every 30 minutes and only cost 250 colones per person (.50 cents). The bus stop is super close to the house. Me and my husband were suprised at the cleanliness of the buses. Way cleaner then the ones in the states. Taxis are also everywhere willing to take you wherever you need to go. The house itself was incredible. The maid did a great job at keeping it clean. We took our kids ages 12 and 9 and they practically lived in the pool during our entire stay. You have a great view off the back porch. We saw frogs, iguanas, birds and monkeys. We never worried about our safety. The people in the neighborhood were very friendly. We could walk at night with no problems. We went to the Super Joseth Market which was really close to the house. They had everything you could possibly need. There are some little markets closer but they dont sale any alcohol. Eating out in Manuel Antonio was pricier then we expected. We did go into Quepos a couple of times and ate great food for half the price. This is a great vacation for families with small kids! I could go on and on.... Absolutely wonderful.

Just returned from a week at Casa Tipoha and had a blast. The road in and out is a bit rough, but it's only 6 blocks so not a big deal. The house is located less than 5 minutes from the beach and the same distance from Quepos. It is located in a typical local neighborhood, but you feel miles away and very secure. We arrived right after a small grocery store opened just one block away which was amazing for beer runs and snacks, as well as your basics (butcher, veggies, toiletries) For me the best part was waking up and jumping into the pool, and then going to the beach, coming back and jumping in the pool, and then having dinner and jumping in the pool. The owner, Oli is very accommodating and he lined out several day trips (zip line, whitewater rafting, ATV tour and horseback riding) for my girlfriend and I, which were amazing. We were picked up promptly and on schedule, at our door, but the days started early on the tour days so be prepared to wake up with the Toucans. We didn't even notice until our last night, but there is a concrete table with a built in grill for preparing your own meals, and if I would've seen it earlier, I would've used it every night. We picked up some mahi-mahi, chicken, some charcoal and a few veggies and had the best meal of our trip in the house. A few bottles of wine and some fresh local food was perfect, not to mention affordable. Speak to the Oli about getting charcoal (carbon) at the local grocery store and you'll have the best meal of your trip!
