  • Amazing house

    "My wife and I and another couple stayed at this house for 8 nights. We could not have been happier. It is truly an amazing house in an incredible area. We had everything we needed right around the corner. Donna the owner is a wonderful host. We had some possible trouble with the volcano near the airport flying out and Donna was so nice to work with us if we needed had something happened. Fortunately nothing did but it was nice to know she was willing to try and help in any way she could. We did not have a car and there was no need for one. The bus(60 cents) is safe and very convenient or cabs for 5 dollars anywhere you would want to go are also right there. Its not on the list that is provided by the concierge but I suggest using costa rica tropical adventures for your adventures if you are staying at the house. http://www.manuelantoniorafting.com.These guys are amazing and speak very good english. They also live a few houses down from this house so they help you in any way they can. We did two days of adventures with them and they also ended up taking us out salsa dancing one night and to a locals place for dinner one night at no charge just because they are good people. They also took us deep into the jungle to do a natural hot spring while eating lunch with a local family who cultivated everything they cooked for us. It ended up being the best meal we had there. The internet is also very good in the house just in case you wanted to use it. Cant say enough good things about this place and we will be returning to this house when we go back."

  • Relaxing atmosphere, amazing views, super clean and reasonably priced

    "My girlfriend and I stayed 6 nights here. It was amazing! We drove from Arenal, where we stayed for 3 nights. I'm so happy that we ended up here!!! This was just a totally different experience. This penthouse is nestled into the rain forest landscape, with a perfect view of the ocean and wildlife. Most days we spent a few hours down on their beautiful beach where we could get beers, rest and relax. There were only a few other families on the beach so it was peaceful and felt very private. We took a trail (part paved part unpaved) down to the beach on two separate days and saw monkeys, iguanas and lizards. We also saw all kinds of wildlife in the jungle right on the hotel's property. The hotel staff as well as the owner were very friendly and easy to deal with. The food at the hotel restaurant was quite good, but you're in walking distance to plenty of other restaurants, so your choices of eating out are very abundant. We toured the Manuel Antonio National Park one morning - walked to it - and had massages one afternoon on the beach. We often sat at the hotel restaurant bar (awesome views from it) and chatted with the restaurant staff and owner, who were all lovely. This restaurant is probably one of the best restaurants in all of Manuel Antonio. Also, you can't go back home without going in for a dip in the pool. It is very clean, picturesque and it has a jungle feel to it. We didn't hear any construction noise as another guest mentioned here. You won't regret staying here. Also, the price is more than reasonable for what you get. The whole place felt relaxed and beautifully maintained. There are white curtains on the porch that makes you feel you are in paradise. We would definitely go back. Thank you Marc for suggesting this wonderful property and for all your gracious support. Your price is more than reasonable given what you get for it."

  • 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!!!"

  • Excellent in every way

    "Casa Mono Congois a coastal view holiday rental home that has no shrtcomings. The location is excellent with great forest canopy and Pacific Ocean views. Beaches and all the linked activities may be easily reached by a short bus ride or an energetic walk. Like wise for local shops and a variety of restaurants at least one of whicch is strikingly good by any standard. If you prefer to cook at home the kitchen and dining areas are beautifully appointed giving wonderful surroundings to share a meal with family or friends. The house and deck are verry spacious and well designed and is built with careful attention both to the needs of those with disabilities and careful preservation of the local environment. As a result, there is plenty of wildlife to delight you without leaving home although Manuel Atonio National Park provdes even more are is only a short ride away. The staff are efficient, helpful and charming and really help in getting thevery best out of your visit. Very highly recommended. I intend to go back very soon"
