"Just returned from excellent vacation to Manuel Antonio region of Costa Rica. The location of this house was excellent -- close to park, beaches, and many excellent restaurants. All five of us (53,52,22,22,16) enjoyed the space of this house and having three bedrooms all with king size beds and all three with attached bathrooms (sink, mirror, shower). Tons of windows in the house, plus the deck and pool area provided excellent views of birds, butterflies, monkeys, iguanas, and geckos. One evening over a dozen monkeys were swinging in the trees "chatting" with us right off of the main deck. All sorts of interesting and large "resident" iguanas that we saw daily on driveway or by pool, plus a giant green iguana in the trees off the deck one morning. Natalia (concierge) and Mrs Flor (cook/housekeeper) were both very friendly. Our average day: coffee on the deck overlooking the forest, breakfast at Cafe Milagro or Emilios, daily activity (beach, park), late afternoon swim, shower, and then off to dinner. Enjoyed our dinners at: Cafe Milagro, Victorias, La Luna, Mirador. The first evening, we pre-arranged for Mrs Flor to prepare dinner for us -- excellent mahi mahi dinner with salad, vegetables, potatoes, and dessert. All of the Costa Rican people we interacted with were extremely friendly. Lastly, we really appreciated having separate air conditioning units in each bedroom as well as the main floor."
