About the property

7 Bed / 9 Bath, Sleeps 18

Vista Oceana is unique among the Luxury Vacation Rental Homes in Manuel Antonio. The design and name of this incredible multimillion dollar house were inspired by the unmatched 180-degree panoramic ocean views it commands. The villa was designed and built by the owner to give every room in the main house as well as the guest house unobstructed ocean views, including bathrooms. The villa is located 1000 ft from the ocean and sits atop a small bluff elevated 200 ft. above the beach allowing you to hear the waves breaking as you watch the surfers below. The panoramic view stretches from the world famous Manuel Antonio national park across the long public beach and up to the rocky shoreline of the Mariposa Peninsula to the north. You will find abundant space and privacy for your entire group to enjoy in this 6000 square foot climate controlled house, which includes 7 elegant master suites.

Swim Up Bar: Unlike many of the homes in the area that offer little or no ocean view from the pool you will relax in our double sided infinity edge pool that seems to melt into the pacific, which features a swim-up-bar complete with Bar-B-Q, refrigerator and sink so you can sit, eat, relax and watch a spectacular sunset every night. Or enjoy a drink on one of any of the 8 covered decks or balconies for an even more spectacular view. The pool also has an area 12 inches deep for those with toddlers to enjoy.

Handicapped Friendly: This is one of the few luxury homes that has the main entrance at street level and can be considered handicapped friendly, the gated front entry at grade level allow for easy access to the main house, and the wide open floor plan makes for convenient use of a wheel chair. There are only three steps between the main living area and the first floor master suite. The main living area is also on the same level as the covered terrazzo and pool allowing everyone to be a part of the fun.

Luxury: From the moment of your arrival, the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean, and the jungle surrounding Vista Oceana will greet you. As you approach the main entry and gaze past the custom front door you will you will feel your breath taken away as you take in the vistas and start your luxury vacation.

Dramatic Close Ocean View - Walk to Beach and National Park - Vista Oceana

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had such a wonderful time in Costa Rica and Vista Oceana was spectacular. The photos didn't do it justice!

We had three arriving groups that met at the villa and despite some of us that had flight delays, the shuttle service was timely, clean, comfortable, and friendly. A great start to the trip.

The first excursion the group did was the 10 in 1, which was actually a 7 in 1. The zip-line, monkey free-fall, tree ladders, and waterfall repelling were exhilarating! The crew that took us was so encouraging and energetic, it even got the most frightened of the group to conquer her fears. People warned us about the rain during the "winter" season in Costa Rica, but there was a point where we took a break during our excursion and were eating fresh pineapple in the rain forest as it was pouring rain and it didn't bother a single person. It was almost magical in a sense and couldn't have been more perfect.

We were all pretty much wiped out on the second day and with the villa being so beautiful, we wanted a day to just enjoy it. We made great use out of the pool and outdoor area. Unfortunately the speakers and dishwasher did not work and the dryer was a bit finicky. However, the cleaning lady was on top of it. The dishes were cleaned before we could even get to them, she assisted us with the dryer, and the house was immaculate when she left. She did a wonderful job. I can't express enough how happy everyone was with our accommodations. Each room had a perfect view and comfortable beds. It made it very hard for all of us to come back home to our small cramped homes in DC.

Some of people in the group went off and did the parasailing excursion and had a wonderful time. Afterwards, we regrouped and went on the Sunset Sailing tour. The crew was great. They were animated, funny, and so accommodating with beverages and to some of us that got sea sick. The food was spectacular! I would say it was one of the best meals we had during our visit!

Our only regret was having to leave so soon. It was a wonderful trip and Costa Rica was better than any of us ever could have imagined. Thank you for allowing us to stay at Vista Oceana. It was certainly a real treat.

Palm Coast

Wonderful accommodations; incredible scenery

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped in the door and were met by a smiling Angie until the day we left with hugs and handshakes from the gardener and the maid, it was a dream vacation. The bedrooms were spacious with private bath; the central living area well laid out but a tad crowded with 12 of us. However, as half of the group invariably spilled out onto the terrace, it really didn't matter.

A maid service and gardener was available all week except Sundays and meals could be catered if required. The catering service was expensive but outstanding, the presentation as good as any five star restaurant. And some meals we just made do.

A lovely infinity edge pool completed the picture with our grandchildren in there from sun up to sundown.

The walk down to the beach is not recommended. It's steep; a curvy road with no sidewalks and you need to be in pretty good shape to hike back up the hill. However, with a bus service that runs every 15 minutes, no need for "walkies" in the heat.

Everything was spotless and well maintained. Two air conditioners were out of order; the first got fixed the day we arrived (Saturday) but unfortunately the second one had to wait until Monday as it needed a new part. I do not understand why the previous tenants had not brought this to the attention of the manager as she was a phone call away and reiterated that she could be called at any time.

The owner came to meet us to ensure that we were satisfied. So, all over a great experience and I have already recommended the property to a friend. We went para sailing which, if not on your bucket list, should be! We gave the National Park a miss as we had enough wild life at the house. Toucans tapping on the shower window; Capuchin Monkeys begging for bananas; squirrel monkeys getting in on the act; iguanas in the trees; parrots watching us. Sigh......

We went to only one restaurant, as eating out with 12 people gets to be pricey. A short hop up the hill is La Cantina, not cheap but outstanding food..

So dust off your bag; grab swimsuit and sunscreen and head for Costa Rica.

Great location with a great view, house is perfect

  • 5 of 5

Understanding the layout of Manuel Antonio, Vista Oceana has one of the best locations near the beach, with one of the best views ... you will never want to go inside. We fit 14 people very comfortably and utilized all aspects of the house. Angie and Silvia were great with day to day things we needed, and Thomas was great at setting up everything from private yoga on the 3rd floor terrace to booking a private yacht. The chef service was one of my favorite experiences on the first night ... after a long day of traveling it was nice not to worry about cooking or finding a restaurant. The listing was very accurate, all amenities were as they were stated, and I would definitely recommend Vista Ocean to family. This was an extremely relaxing vacation and would love to thank everyone at the Vista Oceana location. Pura Vida!

50th birthday

  • 5 of 5

I can't even start to tell you how AMAZING this place is. We rented both houses and Sani the manager was there every day to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us such incredible advice on places we would have never imagined going to. He is now family! He went above and beyond his job but instantly makes you feel like you have known him for years. He took us to places nobody would ever go as a tourist (a waterfall him and his son found, a tropical oasis on the beach, caves on the beach) we were talking and I told him how much fun ziplining I had on my birthday and he recommended another place which had the 3rd longest zipline in the world and it was the BEST PLACE EVER!

Angie was wonderful also, she made sure that we had a ride from the airport to the house. Got all of our tours pre arranged and cancelled or re-arranged with so many people it was like hearding cats. She made sure we all got back to the airport, even our friends that needed a cab at 2am. She arranged for us to have the Chefs 2 nights, which was so delicious and they were so sweet.

The houses I can't say enough about, BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL! Amazing views out every window, room for everyone. The funny goofy toucans the peck on the window in the morning and turn theirs head sideways to look in. We must have 200 pics of just them. The monkeys will come and go unless you give the little buggers fruit. They love the bananas and leeche. One stole the sunglasses off my head at the park and a raccoon tried to steel my husbands wallet so watch for these little buggers at the park. But that is half the charm, where else will you get that.

The people are AMAZING, so friendly, we met Henry a tour guide at the park and had him over for dinner a couple nights and Sani also. They become family, you will want to go back. The restaurant behind the house is great, we went through alot of ice, and they were always giving us some to take home when we went to eat. Wear your walking shoes, everything is up hill, but you will get use to it fast. We will be back.

Fabulous home and priced well!!

  • 5 of 5

We happened onto this property by accident and absolutely loved it. We had rented another nice home in the area that unfortunately had a septic tank issue halfway through the week. Moving all 14 of us was difficult but the owner of our place quickly found us another great house that was vacant. The views of the ocean, the pool with swim-up bar, the closeness to the beach and Park and the beautifully maintained property quickly made all of us forget the disruption of our week. We developed a great relationship with the cleaning gal and with the chef and were sad to have to leave this "little bit of paradise". This home is a must for your consideration whether you are celebrating an event with family or a holiday with friends. Thank you owner for taking us on such short notice.

Vista Oceana is one of the closest luxury homes to the national park and public beach. It is conveniently located on a paved street just 80 yards from the Manuel Antonio road and the Costa Verde Hotel where you can wave down a taxi or catch the bus in front of the hotel, or walk to any number of fine restaurants. WALK to the beach is just minutes!

Golf: The nearest golf course to Manuel Antonio is about 45 minutes away in the town of Jaco (golf is the only reason you'd want to go to Jaco).
