Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your home, and everything went smoothly. The house was so comfortable, and we especially enjoyed the sunsets from the terrace with wine and cheese. Thomas was an excellent manager , was very responsive to all our questions, and helped set up "adventures" for us. We fell in love with Costa Rica . Thank you!

Luxury Vacation Home with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

I am incredibly delayed in writing my review. My husband, three girls (19, 13, 8) and I traveled throughout Costa Rica last summer. We enjoyed every aspect of our month long vacation but this private home and all it offered was definitely a highlight of our trip. After traveling all day from Tamarindo, we arrived very late in the evening and Angie was there to greet us. And what a greeting! The place was incredible! Casa Sandra is a beautiful immaculate home which was furnished with everything we needed and more. We arrived to a wonderful fresh fruit basket at the large dining room table. It looked like we stepped into a magazine. The living area was extremely comfortable and the place our family would enjoy many games and relaxation. The main level and the master suite both had breathtaking views. We enjoyed watching many sunsets from the balcony. My children could hardly wait to wake up to the monkeys entertaining us each morning. We had a rental car but I don't think we needed it as it was close to grocery stores, restaurants and transportation. I highly recommend having Angie arrange excursions. Our favorites were the ATV tour and the snorkeling trip. We felt very well taken care of from the moment we made our reservation to the end of our stay. I must say, I am always a bit nervous to book a place online. You never know what you will actually get. We were so pleased to arrive and find the place was just as magnificent as pictured. The owners are excellent to work with and helped us so much prepare for our visit to Manuel Antonio. We cannot express how thankful we are for such great memories!

Beautiful house with great views. Central but quiet location. And Monkeys too!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent house to stay in if you're visiting the Manuel Antonio Park and the surrounding areas. Great, convenient bus service to the beaches. No rental car required.

Angie and Thomas did an excellent job of looking after us by securing transportation and booking hikes and excursions. As they say, "Pura Vida!"

Heavenly Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sandra was the perfect vacation home from which to enjoy the magnificent beauty and culture of Costa Rica. The house offered beautiful furnishings, modern conveniences, and breath taking views - magnificent sunsets and wildlife sightings daily. It was convenient to local markets, restaurants, beaches, the National Park, adventures, and transportation. Management and concierge staff were kind, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They arranged private transport, tours, adventures and a personal chef. (The dinner was fabulous!) We felt pampered, safe and appreciated sharing a bit of neighborhood life. Our stay exceeded all expectations! The beauty, location, people, and experience brought to life the Costa Rican expression of Pura Vida. Liz and Bob, Chicago

Perfect winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two kids (5 and 7) stayed at Casa Sandra for 10 nights over the Christmas holidays, and it was just perfect. We generally always rent a car, but this house and the area seems so well set up for tours with transportation and easy taxis from the San Juan airport and back (a 2.5-3hr drive) that we didn't even need to do that. It was almost like a private hotel with the services - the fantastic Angie arranged all of our outings as requested before we got there, and one we added while there, and the housekeeper came several times during our stay to tidy up and change sheets. We made breakfast in and occasionally had dinner in, but it was so easy to walk to tons of different restaurants from the house. It was really spacious, INCREDIBLY clean, had comfortable beds, sheets and towels, and the bathrooms were spacious as well. The pool on the upper (covered) terrace was a great break from the beach (and easy 5 minute cab or bus away - $2-$5), especially for the kids, and the hammocks and hanging chairs were a great place to relax. The view to the ocean for our nightly sunset was also phenomenal. The only downer was that we left our two little tubes floating in the pool, and one day the monkeys caught sight of them unattended and stole them away! They were a real sight. All in all, a fantastic trip and a great place to stay. The owners were also very communicative and easy to deal with.

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary trip at Casa Sandra for eight glorious days, and we couldn't have asked for a better "home" or a better location! From the day we arrived until the day we left, we loved every inch of this property. Since 4-6 could stay here very comfortably, the 2 of us had more than enough space. And a balcony on each floor---facing" the "Jungle" or the Pacific Ocean---is it even necessary to choose an adjective on how great that is?!!

Casa Sandra is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, a couple miles from the town of Quepos, and a couple miles from the famous and popular Manuel Antonio Park. It's within walking distance of grocery stores and many nice restaurants (go to Victoria's and ask for Oscar, trust me). The home is very clean--and there is maid service and laundry service. We always felt safe, including walking at night. And speaking of safe, there's one in the home so one can lock their passports and valuables. We saw monkeys almost daily, and many interesting birds. And the sunsets alone are worth renting this home---better than we saw anywhere else all week.

The folks we communicated with before and during our stay here were wonderful--patient, kind, helpful, and easy to get ahold of. We sent many emails beforehand, and a couple calls to ask about things during our stay--and always received a quick response.

We wanted to be busy almost every morning, so we told Thomas and Angie what we were interested in, and they set up everything---inhouse massage (excellent), Manuel Antonio Park tour (take a guide---very well worth it, very necessary, and Henry is great!), a Sunset Sail (5 hours of FUN), a Mangrove Tour (educational--and more monkeys!), a Villa Vanilla

Spice Tour (again, educational and very interesting), ZipLine (first time for us, and it was incredible!). That including us getting picked up and dropped off at our door for all of these as well!

We originally thought we would rent a car all week, but decided to get the van ride from the airport in San Jose to Casa Sandra instead. It was a good decision. Easy to walk almost everywhere, and easy to jump on and off a bus just down the road, which we did often. We did rent a car for 2 days (yes, again, all we had to do was ask the team of Thomas/Angie to take care of this---and they did, dropped off and picked up at our front door!!). We can't say enough about how pleased we were with our accomodations, and the A+/excellent service we received.

Exceptional vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sandra was wonderful! It was everything that we hoped it would be, and more.

The location of the house is the best in Manuel Antonio, in my opinion. The house is located just off the main road so it is nice and quiet. Being able to walk to the grocery stores and many places to eat, was just fantastic. It was easy to catch a cab at the end of the street, and the bus stop was right there also.

When we arrived Angie greeted us and showed us all the features of the house. She was also available by phone to answer any questions, and she booked our ride back to the airport.

She was very friendly and professional. Andrea looked after us well in the cleaning department, and she was very friendly and helpful too! You have a great staff.

I am happy that we were able to stay in Casa Sandra. The house is very comfortable and well equipped, with lots of space for 2 couples. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony, watching for the monkeys to arrive. They didn't come every day, but entertained us greatly when they did. There were so many unusual bird sounds, and one night just after sunset we saw an anteater on the path below the side of the house! What a great view over the water. We tried to be in position to watch the amazing sunsets every night from the balcony.

The temperature was so warm (hot!), that we usually came home after any outing and went right in the pool to cool off! So nice to have your own private pool.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful house with us. We appreciate that you, Donna were very nice to work with, and happy to give us 1st time visitors to Costa Rica any help or advice that we required. We would surely hope to return there in the future!
