  • Excellent location

    "We were at El Encanto in february for two weeks.We loved our stay there,the condo was clean and the kitchen very well equipped with a lot of pots and pans.An important point for us because we loved cooking .Really enjoy the swimming pool ,small but very nice.The place is at walking distance of everything,large groceries stores,restaurants,shops and bars but far enough to be quiet.We really enjoy Jaco and the proximity of the park Carrara and Manuel Antonio.Taxi from the condo to Jaco is less than $2.00 and there is a very good service by city bus to go to the Herradura beach in 20 minutes for 50 cents Curt and Dinah are very friendly and a good source of information.We appréciate the picking and dropping at the airport. We felt safe and we were like at home in Jaco and at El Encanto.Thanks at both of you.We will tell friends and be back for sure. Richard and Lydia from city of Québec,Canada"

  • Awesome Place, Great Views

    "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."

  • Great house in a great setting!

    "Loved this place. Super comfortable house with all of the amenities and a great feel. Even nicer than the photos. Sitting areas abound, tastefully decorated, all bathrooms are ensuite, little details provided (laundry soap, coffee, tea and even bug spray - which by the way wasn't necessary in the dry season), kitchen super usable and well supplied (yes, as others have commented, the dishes are high (we saw this in other houses in Costa Rica too) but it allows a window at the sink with great views of the monkeys in the trees, we just put our dishes in the pantry to make it easier - plus the maid had set the table so many of the dishes were already down anyway). The really great thing about this place, aside from it being a great house with a nice refreshing pool, is that you see more animals while relaxing at home than we did at the Manuel Antonio Park and Rainmaker Park! Titis (endangered squirrel monkeys) came by (20-40 of them), even several babies clinging to their mommas, every morning and many evenings, we also had visits from capuchin monkeys, coatimundis, iguanas, motmots, and other beautiful birds. This helped make our trip spectacular. Jonathan, from the property management company, was awesome and very helpful when we needed it. We had a couple of hiccups and he handled them graciously and quickly. He also booked excursions for us at the same price as booking yourself yet we in no way felt pressured to book through him. The information was simply there with his phone number - call if you need his services, or not. Great place!"

  • Trip of a lifetime

    "This home is like a piece of paradise. The morning wake up calls from the macaws, aracaris, toucans, was like waking up in a dream. Ron and Vicki provided us with all of the relevant information required to allow our trip run smoothly. Within a short drive of the local grocer, markets, and some great dining. We ate well, travelled well, and stayed in a luxury home. So much to see in this beautiful country. We cannot wait to go back! Thanks to Ron and Vicki for opening your home to our family so we could have a trip of a lifetime."
