Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Perfect holiday for our very large family!

    "My husband and I wanted to create a holiday for ourselves, our three adult children and their spouses. Casa Alta was the absolutely perfect choice. The bedrooms are actually private suites, allowing everyone to have their personal space. The kitchen, pool, outdoor dining area and living room were the ideal areas to gather. Olivier and Luz were excellent to deal with and quick to respond to any concerns. The house is warm, comfortable and spacious. Olivier said that we wouldn't need a cars and we didn't! Restaurants and grocery stores are minutes away by foot. It really is the perfect place to call home for a group. Five stars for sure!"

  • AMAZING FOR THE FOURTH TIME!

    "We recently returned from our fourth stay at Casa Mono Congo and it never fails to be magical. The location is perfect for visiting Manuel Antonio National Park as well as many fine dining establishments in the area. However, nothing can compare to the actual experience at the house itself. On our first evening, we were visited by about twenty or thirty titi monkeys, many with babies. They swung through the trees and played on the roof and patio right next to us. As the sun began to set, a group of about fifteen howler monkeys moved into the trees right above the pool and checked us out until dark. The following day we were visited by a sloth and a band of capuchin monkeys. They put on a show for us and three of them played on the balcony above the pool for about tweny minutes. The following days were more of the same. The house itself is absolutely perfect for any group or family. It has three floors, four air-conditioned bedrooms and five full baths. The top floor has a wet bar with a beautiful view of the ocean and rain forest. It also has all of the modern conveniences while still maintaining a very eco-friendly environment. Terry and Pete are great hosts and they always go the extra mile to be sure everything you could need for a perfect vacation is provided. The house manager Mikol is the absolute best we've ever seen. He can recommend great restaurants, tours and out of the way local spots as well. He is extremely professional and immediately responsive to any questions or requests. For larger groups, they also own the house below, Casa Mono Titi, which is beautifully furnished with it's own pool and offers additional privacy as well. If you are visiting the Manuel Antonio area, you can't get a better location to enjoy the true Costa Rica experience than Casa Mono Congo. We will be back for a fifth visit as soon as possible."

  • Fantastic Bungalow in Manuel Antonio!

    "My husband and I booked at 3 night stay at Casa Kaylen, for our Manuel Antonio portion of our Costa Rica trip. Luckily, we were able to add an extra night on to our trip, and arrived a day early! Best decision ever! We loved the bungalow, it suited our needs perfectly. The house is very charming, inside and out...the photos are true to life. The grounds are gorgeous and the bungalow has a great open design, and is nicely decorated, perfect touches as far as furnishings and artwork.... with everything you'd need for a nice vacation in paradise. We really enjoyed the charm of the bungalow, as well as the beautiful tropical grounds (such amazing plants! like from a dr seuss book!) and the view of the ocean. The house was very secure, as others have mentioned...you will not be worried about your valuables and electronics if you lock up accordingly! There are two beaches about a 20-30 minute walk from the house...very hilly, as is everything in MA, but doable for able-bodied people. Only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, a bank and a mini-grocery store....the house is perfectly located. Monkeys occasionally visit in the trees, which is very fun! Some car/truck traffic noise from the nearby road...it was noted in a previous review, but it was just louder than I was expecting! Overall, we had a great stay and a fantastic vacation! The only thing it lacks would be a hammock (or a hot tub) on the deck overlooking the forest and ocean! Just a super place, great memories, felt like we had our own little slice of paradise. Thank you!! Would definitely recommend this place for couples or a very small family of 3, 4 would be tight. I highly recommend taking advantage of the kitchen facilities in the house, and maybe stock up on breakfast/lunch supplies, as the restaurants/cafes in MA are VERY expensive!"

  • Nice home at nice price

    "This villa, set at the end of a street, provides privacy in the heart of Manuel Antonio, yet there is easy access to the beach, park, tour operators, stores, and restaurants. There is a panoramic, sweeping view of a pristine valley, with a vista of mountains and sea beyond, where we watched beautiful sunrises every morning while sipping coffee and bird watching. In the neighborhood we saw a squirrel monkey, a sloth, and a rare duck (gray billed wood rail), iguanas, and many lovely birds. The private pool was a great place to unwind after the beach or the other exciting activities we did in the area (zip lining, white water rafting, surfing and paddle boarding, the Nat Park). While the home isn't luxurious, it has a nice kitchen, there is a nice view from inside, and there are verandas on 3 sides for nice light and bird watching. The home is safe, gated, and kept up by the caretaker, Elaudio, a very gentle, sweet man who is friendly and kind, and helpful without ever being intrusive. It is a roomy home where your family can enjoy their time together with privacy and space in a non-fussy atmosphere at a reasonable price. We recommend arriving during daylight hours, as the road leading to the house is daunting at night, with a steep drop that is not nearly as frightening in the daylight. There is a store just a .5k walk away, and you can catch the bus into town at the turn off to the little road, but you'll appreciate having a car if you stay here. My spouse and I are both over 55 but fit and enjoyed walking down the lane daily, but if you older or have mobility issues, it could pose a problem."
