Why Kirk Wallace chose Manuel Antonio Area

This vacation home is very spacious, has a modern design, a private pool, and looks out into the jungle. We bought it as a quiet getaway from the bustle of the city. But it is a place close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants, bars, and other amenities.

What makes this house unique

PRIVACY, PRIVACY, PRIVACY! If you're looking for a unique, comfortable house to experience Costa Rica, then Casa Bosque Verde is the house for YOU. Get Away........Home.

Pura Vida!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic stay at Casa Bosque Verde and really enjoyed the house. It was so comfortable, beautiful, and accommodating.

Also, I'd like to stress that Antonio was phenomenal!!! He was so sweet, always available, and non-intrusive. We really appreciated having him on the property and enjoyed getting to know him. He made sure to take care of any needs we had and even took the time to practice Spanish with me:) We became good friends by the end of our stay.

We will definitely consider staying again on our next visit to CR.

WOW the home location and concierge were AMAZING! Exceeded our expectations by far! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

For anyone wishing to travel to this area of Costa rica this rental is a must!

The location was amazing, the grocery store was at the end of the street, local buses and taxi right there.

Os the concierge was AMAZiNG setting up anything we needed. He is also really lovely as well as his wife Ellie. Antonio the caretaker with his dog mariposa made us feel completely safe and taken care of. Monkey action right in the back yard. Resident white bunny( who we names Harvey) came to visit and receive pets everyday. The home was much more beautiful then the pictures show, it was WOW WOW WOW I literally teared up when we walked in. Os was there with antonio to greet us and we immediately felt at home. We had a wonderful week the horse back riding and waterfall tour os organized for us was amazing. Our favorite day was trekking to the local beach biesanz. There we were welcomed by only locals and a makeshift bartender making the BEST cocktails while his brother in law bbq fresh tuna, beef tenderloin and burgers!

Presented 5 star style at alittle make shift table delivered to your beach spot!

We could go on and on but you really should just go and experience it for yourself! Best holiday we have ever had!!!! We loved coming home every night to antonio waiting(with mariposa by his side)playing cards in the street.

Great restraurants just down the street.

Forget to tell you Ronnys place for sunset was the best night our family has had together, seeing two macaws in the wild on our wonderful trek up there!!! Say no more just book it!!!!

Our children are 6 and 7

The house comes with 2 binders of DVDs the home is amazing with fans and air conditioning everywhere!

Nothing was lacking!!! Games and books were there for us well!!!!

Go go!!!

Great house, EXCEllENT SERVICE!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, THANK YOU, for letting us stay in the house. It is a great place, very clean, well furnished, very good condition and distribution, and perfect location. Having your own pool made a huge difference.

The service was OUTSTANDING , from the contact person and the welcoming, to an unforgettable Antonio (in-property care taker). Don Antonio made a world of difference. Always there, always with a prompt solution and suggestion to every single detail. He is by far the biggest service asset you can have. Made us feel better than in a five star hotel.

Definitely looking forward to stay there in the future! Please, keep it up with the place and the service. THANK YOU again!

Un havre de paix parfait au coeur de Manuel Antonio

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons étés ravis de notre séjour a la casa bosque verde. La maison, qui est bien plus belle qu'en photo, est très bien située a proximité de supérettes et de restaurants. Elle est très confortable, très propre et très bien équipée. Le jardin est magnifique et nous a permis de voir de nombreux animaux : toucans, singes, agoutis, grenouille et divers oiseaux et papillons. La communication et le service d'Osvaldo a été parfait de la réservation, à notre accueil et jusqu'à notre départ. Antonio le gardien est adorable et toujours prêt à vous rendre service, tout comme Lucy qui s'occupe du ménage et de votre linge. Un choix parfait pour notre séjour. Merci.

Great Location, Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Casa Bosque Verde & as before, we thoroughly enjoyed it! Osvaldo was there to welcome us with a nice basket of goodies & let us know if we needed anything he was always available. Antonio & his faithful companion, Mariposa, live on the property & he is a pleasure to see each morning, welcoming with a smile & a "buenas dias." Lucy, the housekeeper, came to clean,etc.several times during our stay, as well. And we definitely took advantage of the pool on a daily basis. We love coming to the Manuel Antonio area & will most assuredly stay at Casa Bosque Verde again! It was nice that there was a/c in the dining/living area this visit, last time we didn't have that. The only thing I would suggest is possibly some kind of shade in the kitchen to avoid it being so hot in there during the day.

What you see in the pictures is what you get!

  • 4 of 5

What you see in the pictures is what you get! House is nice and clean, well kept and the pool is always warm.. We had a group of monkey come visit us one of the day we were there (we were there a week) and a few toucans. This is an ideal location, as it is off the main drag, yet walking distance to a few good restaurants, and a very short drive into town or to the beach. We were traveling with our three year old, and would not say this is a 'child friendly' house however. The bottom part of the stairs have no rail, and in the hallway upstairs there are three 'windows' (without windows) that look down on the living room. Although it ads beauty to the house, A small child could easily fall through. I would definitely rent again if you don't have small children.

Perfect Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 5 day stay at Casa Bosque Verde! We were there in January 2017. It was perfect for our group--my husband, 2 children, my parents, and I.

The house is very comfortable and well equipped and we loved the outdoor table and porch. The kitchen is well stocked (knives, pots/pans etc) and the phone system to allow for both local calls and free calls to the US/Canada was an added bonus! Os met us on arrival and gave us great information and checked in frequently to make sure our stay was going well! He was also very helpful with arranging activities! Antonio, who lives on the property, was also very helpful and he is good humored and kind! The pool was a welcome oasis at the end of each day. The close proximity to the grocery store and bus stop was also great and we really did not need the car we rented for this portion of our trip! The monkey visitors continue to make me smile as I think back on our outstanding stay in this gem!!!!
