  • Even better than the pictures

    "This home is nestled within the jungle... right in the middle of town! The view of the ocean is just breathtaking and the huge patio is worth the stay here alone! We had such a lovely time here. The house floorplan is unique in that the downstairs is completely separate from the upstairs. Each night we had to "lock" the kids into the downstairs... then we locked ourselves into the upstairs unit. Fortunately they never needed us in the middle of the night... Emilio's restaurant is just next door and absolutely has the best breakfast in town. Activity-wise, we spent a half-day in the Manuel Antonio Park which was wonderful. We also took a jungle cruise through the mangroves (the monkeys jumped on the boat and ate bananas out of our hands!), went parasailing (awesome), and Ricky arranged for a lovely half-day catamaran cruise where we all went snorkeling, saw dolphins, and they grilled fish kabobs on board. All of our kids (ages 4-11) were thrilled! The kids couldn't wait to get into the pool each day. One day we came home to six Capuchin monkeys dancing all over the property, and the morning we left there was a massive iguana on the patio staring at us! Our only complaint is the ants - the house is infested. Even our ipads charging in the corner of the bedrooms were covered in ants at one point. I understand this is the rainforest / jungle and Ricky says they spray for them, but the ants were definitely annoying. It would also be nice if more than two rolls of toilet paper were included and also hand/body soap for the sinks / shower. We had to take time to go shopping for these items. Even so, I'm sure we'll be back oneday!"

  • Great getaway

    "We had an excellent experience at the pool house. The house is very clean and comfortable and the pool is wonderful. It was incredibly relaxing and wish we could have stayed much longer. I enjoyed the close proximity to Montezuma and Cabo Blanco and being able to come back to such a peaceful home. Ginny makes sure everything is in order and I felt like this place was well worth the money. I highly recommend it."

  • Our own private jungle..

    "We just returned from spending a month at Brooks Hacienda....The villa more than exceeded our expectations. The view of the rainforest from the deck is spectacular; each day we discovered more jungle life & sounds. Though the ocean is only slightly visible from the deck, most mornings, you can hear the ocean waves breaking on the shore... Sloths, howler & white-faced monkeys, tropical birds graced us with their presence....The kitchen is big & modern w/most of what you need to cook a great meal...We did use the a/c in the bedroom at night; but the rest of the house was comfortable during the day...Pool is inviting & very private. Wi-fi worked well. Housekeeping once a week included laundry & Terry, the house manager, was attentive..We have been coming to Manuel Antonio for the last 11 years, & this time was truly our best time. We have already begun to plan our next trip....Pura Vida!!"

  • Wonderful home away from home in paradise

    "Our family was lucky enough to have stayed at Casa Escondida for three months. We loved the home for many reasons; the house is airy and spacious, with a breath taking view of the beautifully manicured garden and back yard. Our daughter loved spending time outside exporing the trees and fauna. We would wake up everyday to the birds singing, toucans and parrots visiting the mammoth trees outside, and the general serene and quiet of the home. Although it is completely quiet and private, there are neighbours and Ricardo (the caretaking) close by and we always felt safe. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, fantastic yard and hammocks, and is maintained by a warm and wonderful staff to ensure that it is in beautiful condition. Casa Escondida is about 1 mile away from Playa Hermosa, which a beautiful beach known as one of the best surfing beaches. We enjoyed sunsets there and watching the weekly surf competitions. The Casa is a close 10 minute drive to Jaco beach which provides all the ammeneties we were looking for (including a farmers market and many restaurants/bars/stores), but it felt miles away from the crowds of Jaco. We also loved driving to the quiet and calm beaches of Playa Esterillos, which are about a 15 minute drive from the Casa. We would love to stay here again! Highly recommended for those seeking adventure and for anyone looking to truly relax and be away from it all. Pura Vida!"
