  • You Will Not Find Anywhere Better Than This!

    ""Wow!" is the first word we exclaimed when we arrived at this gorgeous property. "Perfect" and "Paradise" are two other words that came to mind. You will not find a better location in CR, I'm positive of it. Ken and Kim were fantastic hosts, House Manager Jose took excellent care of our every whim, and the cleaning staff kept the place spotless. The viewing deck is the only place you need to be the whole trip, because you don't want to miss seeing any of the wildlife or hearing the ocean. The splash pool was shaded, cool and beautiful. We only used the ping pong and pool tables once but what a great way to enjoy happy hour! This perfect, private sanctuary has everything you could dream of for a life-changing vacation experience. If you need to supplement your experience, Kim offered a fantastic sunset horseback ride for my daughter that she thoroughly enjoyed, and Ken set up a zipline for our whole family that was top notch - best and safest I've ever done anywhere. And as everyone else has posted, take Jose's Mangrove tour for sure! The beach is semi-private, and it is a hike to get down there, but just take some drinks and snacks and LOTS of sunscreen during low tide and enjoy the day down there. (then just have a nap after you survive the hike back up! it's not really dangerous, just tiring in the heat). Tips: Bring a book - there's nothing better than listening to the jungle and reading in a hammock. If you have a large family, bring games for the evening. You won't want to be watching TV, trust me! Get your coffee at Café Milagro right at the top of the hill - they have the best. We also thoroughly enjoyed a dinner there. Buy bananas/fruit - you'll want snacks for "jungle visitors" Bring several good cameras - trust me, everyone will be grabbing for a camera when the animals come out to play! Have Jose find you some fish - he has friends who can provide you with anything fresher than the grocery store will have. Also the ceviche is a great snack, as him about it. Pura Vida!!!"

  • A perfect spot to stay in Manuel Antonio

    "We rented the top two units at Villa Azul and it was exactly what we wanted, and better than we expected. The units are very spacious and perfect for two couples or six people. The covered decks are wonderful places to sit and take in the views and the jacuzzi is perfect for watching the sunset. We also made good use of the new pool. The location is convenient to everything. Jean is the perfect host. He can book all of your tours, and will give great recommendations on where to eat. I can't imagine finding a better spot to stay."

  • Imagine Paradise

    "Imagine paradise, now imagine your home in Paradise; Casa Bella Vista! The Villa is nestled in the jungle high above the rest of Manuel Antonio,but within walking distance to restaurants, stores and an ATM. A bit of a trek to the beach but doable or a quick taxi ride with a great payoff, awesome beaches and fun restaurants with ceviche and plenty of beer or the local drink cacique. When we got to CBV we were greeted by the wonderful smile and warm welcome of our gracious and generous host/concierge Sani Teni. We had arranged all our tours and activities in advance with Sani. All our activities were 1st class and made our stay effortless and exceptional. CBV includes, Sani, our guard Coco who alerted us to all visiting and resident animals. 3 resident sloths, mamma,baby and male, toucans,other birds, troops of Spider, White Face and Howler monkeys,lizards and frogs to name the coolest animals that came by. We had maid service daily,laundry service and a chef by request. We had an amazing dinner elegantly prepared and served on our beautiful patio overlooking the infinity pool that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The picture cannot do justice to the serene and exquisite view. Our group of 8 recommend the Villa and the immense expertise of Sani."

  • This is Paradise

    "My girlfriend and I have been here nearly one month and it is fabulous. The location is perfect for going into town or the beach. Easy, inexpensive, reliable bus transportation or a quick cab ride. The monkeys have visited, the birds are very vocal and we have an iguana who has taken permanent residence on the patio roof..the amenities are perfect. The heated, locked security closet is a real perk and having a washer and dryer makes the visit even more stress free. The Hotel California behind the complex offers amazing sunsets, happy hour specials, and wonderful food. As two women traveling alone we couldn't feel more safe and secure. Lance and Letty are great people as well as awesome musicians...they rock it every Saturday in Quepos...I did a lot of research on choosing a place to stay for an extended period and I know I got the best value..Pura Vida!"
