Fantastic, modern, practical jungle home

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to everything in Manuel Antonio. Modern decor and tons of little details ... You wouldnt miss anything from home. If you needed help, Luis, Yorleny or Gary came quickly to the rescue. Recommended!

Fantastic property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Carpe Deim for 8 days with 8 people. The house was more then spacious for all of us. The pool was wonderful and we used everyday. We saw sloths, white faced monkeys and toucans all from the beautiful deck. The location was perfect, easy walking distance from many yummy restaurants, Mar Luna and Sanchos two of our favorites. Alejandro was our host. He was always accessible and willing to help us with shuttles, recommendations and general information. One of our best vacations, would highly recommend both the property and location. We really enjoyed the zipline and buggy waterfall tour.

Nice, modern.. and great location !

  • 4 of 5

The house is pretty good located , close to the beach (5 min in taxi) and close to Manuel Antonio park, has a beautiful pool, in the middle of the jungle! Nice master shower that make you feel in nature that's Costa Rica, the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need , the only missing star on this house is the beds, you have a nice home, modern look you espect the beds are comfy especially when you come back very tire for excursions, you want a good 30 min nap.. well I stay 8 nights and none was a good sleep , totally need new beds and pillows.. well over all is a 4 ⭐️
