Why Kirk Wallace chose Manuel Antonio

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!

                                                                        Jennifer S.

                                                                        I took off one star because of the debacle that occurred upon our arrival. I rented this place and received confirmation and reminders through HomeAway, but with the WRONG CONTACT INFORMATION! I checked in with Elizabeth, the supposed local contact, as requested, the night before our arrival, then several times on the drive from San Jose, never receiving any response. When we got to Casa Bosque Verde, Antonio the caretaker had no idea we were coming! Nicole, the actual contact and designated concierge, also had no idea we were coming! To the owner/manager, please make sure that all contact information is updated. It is a lousy experience to show up after 10 hours of travel, knowing that the place is paid for, only to be told that the pertinent parties don't have your reservation!

                                                                        Once we got that taken care of everything at this place was lovely. Antonio is indispensable to have on the property. He resides in a small carriage house on the street side of the house, all of it within a walled lot. He took good care of everything that we needed. We did not need much. Nicole arranged several activities for us and all were great. The house and the grounds were so pretty and welcoming: bigger and better in real life than in the photos.

                                                                        The house is well-situated, a 30 minute walk to the beaches, or a much quicker taxi ride. The main road is busy and narrow with not much shoulder, so be careful if you choose to walk. There is a supermarket at the end of the block for all of your needs. The weather was hot when we were there, so the A/C in the bedrooms was very welcome. The kitchen is moderately well-stocked and the beds very comfy! The whole place is spotless (thank you Lucy!).

                                                                        Be aware that much of this beachfront hilly community has iffy plumbing, so it's requested that nothing is flushed down the toilets besides human waste--NO TOILET PAPER IN THE TOILETS! It's no big deal, but some people may be squeamish about that request. If you have little kids, be aware that the mezzanine and staircase have very wide spaces between the balusters and railings, big enough for an adult to fall through--you will have to be very vigilant, which is not so relaxing.

                                                                        We had a great time here!

                                                                        Warm welcoming getaway

                                                                        Laurie F.

                                                                        We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Bosque Verde with grandparents, mom & dad, and two kids (ages 5 and 2.5). Best part, by far, is the pool in the backyard. The pool and back patio are very private. We woke to the first light every morning and roosters who were up before then! The proximity to the supermarket (Super Joseth) was great, as we walked down almost every day for additional snacks or breakfast items. Several restaurants, beaches, and shops close by. With the little kids, we did take cabs a fair amount. The house is not ideal for toddlers (openings on the 2nd level, staircase has a drop-off at the middle), but fine for kids probably 4+. Even our 2.5 year old was okay, but it did require an extra-watchful eye. Great hospitality by all and we enjoyed backyard monkey visits two separate days!

                                                                        Great house, Great location

                                                                        Ben D.

The house is in a perfect location, half way between Manual Antonio and Quepos. We did not rent a car. The home was very close to great restaurants, markets, and public transportation. Os was very helpful with any questions and checked in on us from time to time via text. The house was very spacious and clean. The pool was great, plus we had several monkey visitors. We can't wait to go back.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

Don Antonio and Os were a pleasure to deal with and took great care of us. Very attentive and nice. We really enjoyed getting to know Don Antonio and he was always there to help us with the doors and any questions we had! Os was super helpful finding out information for tours before we even got there and giving us some recommendations for places to eat and beaches to visit.

                                                                        The transaction was smooth ad easy as well as the booking.

                                                                        The house is really comfortable and we had everything we could ever think of needing. Clean and very modern. we enjoyed the porch and the hammock. It was so nice to lay in it in the evening or early in the morning and just listen to the sounds of nature that surround the house.

                                                                        It was a short 5 minute drive to the Espadilla Beach and we had a wonderful time. Beautiful beach too. We even found some games in the house and had an intense game of Monopoly followed by some dominoes!

                                                                        Thank you so much again for a wonderful stay. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Pura Vida!

We were in the middle of a neighborhood so we really felt like we experienced Costa Rica like a native. The grocery store is right down the street so buying food to bring home was easy. Os was great in setting up tours and guides and we really enjoyed our activities and excursions. Antonio was so kind in making sure we were taken care of in the home. We saw many monkeys and animals in the yard and had fun in the pool. There were lots of bugs but we expected that so it was fine. We rented a car for our family of five and liked that we parked behind a locked gate. We also walked a lot and used local transportation which was super easy. I would highly recommend this property.

The property is a serene place that makes it easy to connect with family, relax and get into the beautiful and contagious spirit of Costa Rica, specifically Manual Antonio. The house is pristine and offers lush scenery and modern amenities. The Casa Bosque Verde Team to include, Os and Antonio were extremely accommodating and kind during our stay. The location of the property can't be beat. It's an easy walk to the grocery store and close to all the highlights in M.A. (our favorite was Playa Biensanz). Our flight was canceled on Wednesday and there we found ourselves, with our twin three-year old boys, back in the car and returning to M.A. We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Bosque Verde and highly recommend it.
