Words Cannot Describe This Beautiful House And Amazing Locationn!!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"We stayed at this GORGEOUS home for a week and what a pleasure it was !!!!!! What a Tropical Destination of choice !
The photos do NOT do justice for the house and location ! We saw a wide variety of birds and animals and a troop of monkeys coming every afternoon to the house ....... Omg!!!! I was in PARADISE!!
I will just say it was just perfect!
Thank you Ken for helping us organize our trip . My teenage boys had a awesome time as well ! We did a zip line very very organized and very good food.
And there's Jose the grounds keeper what a awesome man he is ! He took us on a mangrove tour that was amazing ! After that we ended up eating lunch in a Costa Rican home/farm with animals GALOR ! WOW!!!
What good food that was!
And then the day before we left we went on Kens boat with 4 crow members ... I really don't know what to say about this experience ...... My husband and my boys did some fishing ..they absolutely loved it ....we "only" cought 250-300lb grouper and snapper ....and did I mention the chef on the boat? The food that he made for us was EXCELLENT!!!
I just don't know what was are "High Light " for this vacation........
But I think I know .........

I SALUTE YOU BOTH !!!!! 👍"

"This villa was an awesome place to stay in Manuel Antonio. It is centrally located and the views are fabulous. We stayed here for my 50th birthday, and I needed a place with at least 10 rooms. This villa was perfect for the occasion. All rooms have king-size beds and almost every room has its own bathroom. There is a kitchen for the main house and separate kitchens for the 3 two bedroom apartments below the main house. There is one room on the main level which worked out perfectly for my mother who has some difficulties with stairs. With a total of 17 people, everyone was extremely comfortable and had plenty of space.
The villa sits on top of a hill near the Hotel Mariposa. There are amazing views of Manuel Antonio National Park and the ocean from every floor. There is a large outdoor table area for dining which we used every day. There is a nice pool for when we did not want to walk down to the ocean, which was a 20 minute walk (or 5 minutes by taxi). We were also visited almost daily by the monkeys.
Laurent, the owner, was incredibly helpful. He arranged transport from San Jose for a number of my guests. He also helped to set up the activities we participated in (Catamaran Cruise, Zip-Lining, Mangrove Tour). Finally, he helped us order groceries for delivery from the local supermarket. Laurent was always around to help, but at the same time, he gave us our privacy and was never intrusive.
All in all, I would highly recommend this villa, especially for those with a large group. We had a fantastic week in Manuel Antonio and this villa was central to our experience."

"Our family, including 2 teen girls and my mother, enjoyed our week at this beautiful secluded air-conditioned rental home up in the hills of Costa Rica. A 4x4 is a MUST to get up the dirt/rocky hills, but we all thought that was part of the adventure. If you like to be right in the middle of all the action, then this is probably not for you, but my family loved it. We all enjoyed adventures each day in nearby Quepos/Manuel Antonio and then returned for a swim in the pool to watch the sunset before heading out again for dinner or making dinner at the house. It is at least a 15 minute trip to get to Quepos and about 5 minutes of it is on a dirt road through African Palm Trees. The home is located in a gated area, but you literally can't see another home from it. It has beautiful views and off to the far south, you can see the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The people that manage the home live nearby and were very helpful in getting us to the home and helping us locate good restaurants. As with all homes, there were a few very minor things that the owner needs to fix, but none of it was really a big deal. (The dishwasher ran loudly, there were some scratchy animal noises in the vents, and the wood around the pool needs to be replaced.) The home is very clean and there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Also, the owner, was very helpful and easy to work with via phone/email prior to our visit. We would definitely stay again. We heard about a good adventure even further up the mountain that we didn't get to try, but hear is good."
