About Nicole Bastian, Manuel Antonio Rental Properties
Hola! My name is Nicole Bastian, and I am the Reservations Manager for Villa Vigia. I am originally from Minnesota, though I have been living here in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, for over 10 years. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about the property--or about Manuel Antonio in general!
Nicole Bastian, Manuel Antonio Rental Properties purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Nicole Bastian, Manuel Antonio Rental Properties chose Manuel Antonio
The owners bought this property because they were moved by it's beauty, location and views. They wanted to establish a foothold in Costa Rica that they could use to visit yearly, and make a connection between their two children and the local culture. To this day, they spend several weeks here in Manuel Antonio every year!

The pictures don't do it justice
Villa Vigia took our breath away upon entering then continued to throughout our stay. We never got used to the breathtaking views, open air of the amazing common areas, and daily visits from the monkeys. Nicole, who helped with our booking was immensely helpful in helping us make an informed decision about booking the property. Vanessa, our concierge, was a dream. We hardly had to worry about a thing as she recommended and booked adventures, dinner reservations, and even rides throughout our trip. By the end, she felt like a part of our family. Staying here and our trip to Costa Rica was truly a once in a lifetime experience.
Grand house, needs some work
To be clear, we loved staying here. The house has grand proportions and myriad private nooks, all with great views and a super pleasant pool overlooking the beach. The staff are fantastic and quick to respond to questions and requests.
However, it's clear that the house has seen better days. At various times during the week, the shower in our room sprayed all over except in the shower stall, the fridge went warm, the dishwasher gave up, the food disposal stopped working and the freezer succeeded in never producing ice or keeping ice cream frozen. We had ice cream soup after dinner instead. The kitchen with amazing size was unfortunately stocked with a hodgepodge of equipment pieces, some of which worked, little of which matched. Generally, some design editing would refresh this place tremendously.
At the end of the day, however, despite the setbacks mentioned, this was a great place to stay with a couple of families, and the kids all had a blast. I would recommend this place to friends even with all the quirks.
Thank you for your feedback, Marisa, and I am sorry that you had an unfair share of mishaps. It is true that the dishwasher died, but we ordered and installed a new one, so this is no longer a problem. We fixed the faulty shower head immediately after it was reported. The refrigerator--just like any refrigerator--if opened constantly by numerous kids, will struggle to keep things cold.
Despite all of this, the owners have also decided to do a kitchen remodel this year--so if you decide to return in the future it will be quite a different place!
Other than that--the villa is in great condition!
An amazing stay! We would stay again.
My sister and I chose Villa Vigia after a lot of searching and we are so glad, it was one of our best family vacations! Firstly. we were impressed by Nicole who patiently answered our questions prior to arrival.
Once we arrived, we were welcomed by Vanessa and the whole staff and immediately fell in love with the place.
The house is beautiful with lots of space, which was great with 3 kids. We spent most of our time at the house in the pool area, which had plenty of sun loungers, a big pool with toys and the view is spectacular. Just add a cocktail!
The bedrooms are large with really comfortable beds.
One of the things that we really liked about the house, was that you could walk to a nearby beach. We walked down several time to Besanz, it a great sheltered bay, you can rent kayaks, paddleboards and even snorkel, we saw a few fish and the kids loved it!
A great stay!
A Dream Come True!
We were there to celebrate a birthday and an anniversary and it could not have been more perfect. We were looking for a home that would allow us to connect as a family but also have space and downtime on our own. Villa Vigia was beyond delightful and more than what we hoped for. The best way I can describe it is being there felt like a big EXHALE. I find myself daydreaming about that very special place and we will certainly return. The entire staff, Willy, Sonia, Vanessa were fantastic and made us fall in love with Costa Rica and its genuine warmth. We had one very minor issue with an AC remote control and, I only mention it, because Vanessa had us sorted out in a couple of hours and that is to be commended. Villa Vigia, see you soon! Pura Vida!
The property is amazin
We stayed 5 days here with 3 other couples to celebrate my 40th. The property is great and Vanessa takes care of everything for you. The house is large and very nice. The only downfall is the apartment where you have to go through the garage and laundry room to get to it. That is perfect if someone in your group wants to be a little separated. We had Cgef Roger cone twice to cook for us. The food is amazing but affordable. Overall perfect trip
Spectacular home, unforgettable experience
My husband and my three daughters (ages 12,10 and 7) and our family friends thought Villa Vigia was the ideal place to spend a week in Manuel Antonio. Having lived in Costa Rica over 20 years ago, I carefully researched places so as to make my return a special experience for my family, and Villa Vigia did not disappoint us. We had an unforgettable experience swimming in the gorgeous infinite pool and watching the squirrel monkeys at play, cooking in the fabulous open kitchen, zip lining through the rainforest with Safari Adventures, surfing at Manuel Antonio Beach, touring the park with Bernie (awesome guide available through Henry at front gate). With Willie at the front gate and Flaca the kind and attentive housekeeper, we felt that we were staying in a very safe home. You will love the views of Manuel Antonio. My 7 year old called it her castle and never even wanted to leave! Couldn't agree more-
Villa Vigia is located on Quepos Point, known for its luxury properties, natural setting and great ocean views. Furthermore, there are two beaches within walking distance: Playa Bisanz, and Playa Espadilla (the main Manuel Antonio public beach).
