Manuel Antonio house description
Casa Gina is a new, private, romantic and secure home located within an gated community in Manuel Antonio. Just minutes by bus or car to Quepos or the national park, our two bedroom, two bath fully air conditioned home was designed from the start to provide you with a peaceful and rejuvenating experience.
A beautiful private pool with sandstone deck and palm roofed wet bar is the perfect place to spend your day. Double teak doors greet you from the main entrance and continue in each of the rooms. The home is furnished with high end custom made Guanacaste furniture, a dark and luscious wood that is the national tree of Costa Rica.
We brought the outside in: The main living area features a twelve foot ceiling decorated with teak and comfortable seating for eight. Whole house A/C units will keep everything cool and dry. Six sliders open into the pool area and main deck from the living area to form one large room, opening the home to the outside rainforest. Abundant recessed dimmer controlled lighting throughout the home provide a soft comfortable glow for entertaining or relaxing.
A comfortable place to spend your day is on one of Casa Gina's four decks. Many birds including toucans, three types of monkeys, sloths, iguanas and the majestic Blue Morpho butterfly call this area home. A gas grille is the perfect way to cook all of the fresh fish, chicken and vegetables that are available from the farmers market in town.
Our kitchen is tastefully designed with teak cabinets, granite counter-tops and quality stainless steel appliances. All expected small appliances are provided including an ice maker. A very complete set of utensils, pots and pans will make creating your own meals a delight. A breakfast island and wet bar for four invite you to linger and share a laugh or two with friends. The Guanacaste wood dining table has seating for six.
Both bedrooms feature king sized beds and quality bedding. Store your personal belongings in the beautiful matching armoires and nightstands. A remote controlled, A/C unit plus ceiling fans assure a comfortable nights rest. Individual private covered decks with large sliders bring the outside in and give you a quiet place to sit and read or to enjoy the sounds and sights of the rainforest. Each of the two full baths are finished with sandstone floors and shower enclosures. Teak counters, vessel sinks, rainfall shower heads and mood lighting complete the rooms.
Enjoy the quiet privacy of Casa Gina or immerse yourself in the warm friendly culture that is Costa Rica. Casa Gina is located five minutes from the town of Quepos and five minutes from the beautiful white sand beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park. There are dozens of restaurants ranging from typical Costa Rican “sodas” to gourmet dining within minutes of the home.

Just What We Needed
Date of Arrival: February 20, 2013 Title: Just What We Needed Review: As advertised, Casa Gina was private, romantic and secure. It was also just the type of sanctuary my husband and I needed for a truly relaxing getaway. We spent a week there. The house was immaculate and very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable. The grounds were well-maintained. The house was situated such that it was easy to appreciate all the sights and sounds of the outdoors from indoors or the patio. The best monkey pictures we got were taken from the patio by the pool! The resident iguanas were greatly amusing. I only wish I had remembered to pack binoculars. Jeannette and Carlos were very helpful, arranging for outing reservations, and promptly responding to any questions we had. The mid-week maid service was a treat we had forgotten about. The young women who cleaned Casa Gina did a great job and were very pleasant. Most of our days involved rising early and heading out for some type of outing. We would return to Casa Gina mid afternoon and relax by the pool until we felt inclined to venture out for dinner. Outings included Manuel Antonio National Park, MidWorld for zip line tours (very fun), a mangrove tour by boat in Isla Dalmas, and driving further south to explore Ballena Marine National Park and Playa Matapalo. These were both beautiful beach areas with very little development. If you are looking for privacy and what feels like your own beach, Playa Matapalo is the place to go. There is also a great little restaurant/bar in town that has excellent Casado con Pollo en Salsa! We did not feel comfortable swimming here though. Signs warned of strong rip currents and there were no lifeguards. But the scenery was beautiful and the water was surprisingly warm. It was more refreshing to go in the pool at Casa Gina. All restaurants that we tried in Manuel Antonio were good. Costa Verde, Victoria's, Salsipuedes (?) to name a few. We purchased food at the Super Joseth market in Manuel Antonio. It was nice to have breakfast at the house and cook on the grill one night. The little we saw of Costa Rica on this trip has inspired us to learn about other parts of the country. Whenever we want to return to the Central Pacific region I would want to stay at Casa Gina again. Thank you Gina and Gary for making your lovely home available to us! Best wishes, Stephanie

Wow...what an amazing house.Guest comment entered by owner
Wow...what an amazing house.
Wow...what an amazing house. The pictures don't even begin to show the luxury this house has to offer. First, the beds...oh my goodness, the beds! Trust me when I say that the comfortable and cozy beds beg you stay in them. Second, the kitchen...beautiful and well stocked with everything we could possibly need and more. Third, the living area was perfect for four adults, we had plenty of space and were never on top of each other. And last but not least...the pool and wet bar area...beautiful, clean, and the perfect setting for relaxing in the middle of the rain forest. We had planned to spend our second day away from the home but the plans changed when we saw where we were staying. None of us wanted to leave so we just stayed at the house all day. Casa Gina was the perfect setting for an indulging rest day by the pool at the end of an active Costa Rican vacation. The house manager was able to arrange for a private chef for us our last night. I absolutely recommend this! We had casados every day we were in Costa Rica and had the chef (Junior and his helper David) prepare the same. Junior's casados was the best we had and he even showed us how to make some of the local dishes. They brought the food, prepared it and cleaned up! Junior and David made our last night in Costa Rica very special and Casa Gina was the perfect setting. And lastly, the owners and the house manager Jeanette were awesome to work with. Professional, responsive, friendly, and very pleasant to work with. Jeanette truly exemplifies the "Pura Vida" style. People...do yourself a favor and book this house. You won't regret it!

A Week in Paradise!!!
A Week in Paradise!!!
We had a wonderful time at Casa Gina! This home is so tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean! We loved relaxing by the pool and chilling on the deck. The monkeys came to visit one day, about twenty in all. What a thrill!!!! It was one of the highlights of our trip! We had Desiree cook a few of the mornings and she did a great job! We enjoyed every breakfast she created for us! Junior and his wife Jeaneth came one night and cooked a lobster feast for us. They are the sweetest couple and took such pride in preparing our meal. We enjoyed every bite!! We went to visit them at their restaurant the next night and the food there was just as delicious! The house manage Jeannette is fantastic!!! We were late on our arrive and she waited hours for us! She was welcoming, attentive and available as needed. We can't wait to come back next year! Pura Vida!!!!

Perfect Vacation Rental
Perfect Vacation Rental
Casa Gina was a fantastic vacation rental. The location was very convenient. It is close enough to town and the beach but still very private. Waking up in the morning to be surrounded by jumping monkeys, singing birds, and the beautiful blue morphos was truly one of the best parts of our Costa Rican adventure. The house itself is nicely laid out and decorated. I wish I had that kitchen in my house. It was nice to be able to grill on the deck and eat outside on those nights we did not want to go out. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms reminded me of a spa. The house was very clean and well maintained. There are numerous custom touches throughout that one could only find in Costa Rica including beautiful hardwoods and tile. Without a doubt my favorite part of the house was the deck over looking the rainforest. I could sit in that rocking chair for hours watching the jungle go by. It’s nice that the glass doors at the front of the house completely open up the living area to the deck. Truly, this is like no place I have visited before and we are anxiously planning our next trip to Costa Rica and Casa Gina.
