                                                Beautiful house on a Beautiful location!

                                                Mariska v.

                                                We had a great time in this house! It's perfect for family groups. Everyone has their bedroom with private bathroom so you still have your own space in the house. The living area and terrace is great and from their you have an amazing view. Every morning we saw ara's flying over the house and lots of monkeys around the property. Do make sure you don't leave food in the kitchen because the monkeys will steel it.

                                                For sure ...if the monkeys can see it ..they will steal it!!

                                                Jo M.

                                                All 12 of us love love LOVED our week at the fabulous Villa Manakin. We had privacy when we needed it, and a fun-filled communal experience when we wanted it. The pool was wonderful. (Thanks so much for providing the rafts we asked for!) The 4 p.m. visits from the local monkeys were a treat. The meal cooked in the villa one night by two local chefs was sooo delicious. Honestly, we were so pleased with our stay here. If you're a large group, book it! You won't be disappointed.

                                                We had a wonderful stay at Manakin Villa. The wildlife and views from the patio were gorgeous. The staff were kind and attentive. We had four couples at our retreat, and the home accommodated us all beautifully. A close drive to Manuel Antonio Park and the attractions of Quepos and the Marina.

                                                Excellent Retreat House!

                                                Rebekah b.Asheville

                                                We rented this villa to host a couples retreat of eight people. The staff was wonderful, making sure we had everything we needed. Hats off especially to Marcella, in the office and Richard the owner. The views were spectacular. The wildlife is amazing. We were enchanted daily by monkeys, (keep all your food put away)! A sloth, lizards and flocks of birds also kept us entertained. The lovely pool was a great place to relax, we even taught some of our sessions there. It is fairly private, although you can hear the neighboring villas.

                                                Quepos is very close and don't miss the farmer's market. Manuel Antonio is a 15 minute drive or taxi ride away. We will definitely be going back. We also spent one night in another smaller villa, Villa Macaw, that was perfect for our two couples.

                                                Paul S.

                                                Excellent location near Quepos bay near marina and Manuel Antonio Park. We were there for a week with three other couples, and each had there own separate air conditioned room within the villa. The main floor was very open with kitchen, dining and living room. Large sliding class "walls" could be opened to the swimming pool and large back deck overlooking Quepos bay. Since the villa is positioned on the hillside, the deck is at tree top level, and you can see the monkeys swinging from branch to branch on a daily basis. They even jump on to the deck sometimes to get a drink from the pool, or may even venture into the villa if you leave the doors open!

                                                Service was excellent and very accommodating to our eclectic schedules. Hope to come back again next year.

                                                Sometimes the monkeys don't get the memo about not entering the houses! LOL

                                                We are glad you had a pleasant experience staying in Manikin. Thank you for staying with us and come back soon!

                                                Great home, wonderful experience!

                                                Scott H.

                                                Our stay at Manakin Villa was exceptional. We had a large group of eleven, aged 80 to 2. We found a bedroom that was a perfect fit for each of us. Each room is air conditioned, however, the main living space of the home is not. At first we were hesitant about the lack of A/C in this area, however, once you arrive, it will all make sense. The outdoors becomes part of your living area. There are large sliding glass doors, which once opened, bring the outside in. Trust us, this is where you want the outside in. You are surrounded by wonderful trees, you are part of the jungle. We had 2 different types of monkeys visit us daily: capuchin and titi (squirrel monkey). They would swing by in the mornings and afternoons just to say hi and entertain us. We also had a family of iguanas hanging out in the sunny front side of the home during the late morning. We even had one visit from a 3 toed sloth, a pretty amazing and strange animal. Besides being immersed into the jungle, the home is quite well put together. It could use a little maintenance here and there, but it was in good shape nonetheless. The large kitchen island is great for putting out a large spread, for your group. There are also a couple of large tables, one in the dining area and one on the deck. The pool is not huge, but it is definitely big enough. It is actually deeper than we thought. With the sliding doors open, the pool is part of the living space. We could all be in different parts of the main area, but still be a part of the conversation. The staff at Manuel Antonio Estates was wonderful. Dorit and Marcella in concierge were all so helpful and always smiling. Great home, wonderful experience!
