Guestbook comments from the manager

This home is beautiful! The pictures online really don't do it justice and can't reveal all the intricate details it has to offer. It is evident the homeowners put their heart and soul into creating a home away from home (only in PARADISE!) for their guests to be comfortable in every way. No detail is left out! The staff is the icing on the cake! During our stay we were welcomed by the concierge who showed us around the home, walked us thru the details of staying in the home and help explain how we would navigate our way around the area, etc. The home is closely located to local restaurants and only minutes from Quepos and the Marina. And of course you're only footsteps from the beach! That evening we were able to meet one of the three full-time security guards who stays on the grounds in the evenings. Very sweet young man who made us feel safe and secure during our stay. The housekeeper, Ennie, was an absolute sweetheart! She did an amazing job at cleaning up the home while we were gone during the day and even washed, dried, folded our laundry. It was easy to be spoiled by her very quickly! Pablo, the grounds keeper greeted us daily as we would come and go from the home and was always very friendly with us! He was even so kind as to treat us unexpectedly to fresh coconuts right from the trees to try as drinks! Having beach front access to the Pacific Ocean from this beautiful home made for a very special and exciting stay in this wonderful country of Costa Rica! We felt very blessed to have had the opportunity to experience our first trip here in Manuel Antonio and hope to one day return! You simply must stay at "THE BEACH HOUSE"! :D

Beautiful home in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Beach House. The property is lovely and the staff were very helpful. Access to the beach is incredible, and the region of Manuel Antonio offers everything. One of our best family vacations ever! Hope to be back!

A Perfect Stay In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time at the beach house and it only gets better. Where else can you have a beautiful air conditioned house that is only steps from the beach. Not only that, there are now more restaurant options on the beach so you really don't ever have to get in your car if you the blissed out beach feeling washes over you.

Service from MAV Rentals is top notch and they are so helpful with tours, trips and general questions. The staff at the house are kind professionals who do a great job unobtrusively.

This is really a dream vacation where you can be in paradise and have all the comforts of home. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. The house being steps away from the beach was the highlight for us - we went down the beach multiple times a day and it was so nice to come right back to the house and enjoy a snack and shade. The pool is beautiful and the hot tub (not hot during the day) was perfect for our little kids (age 7,5, + 4). Enni, the housekeeper, was the sweetest ever and Paco, the gardener was so friendly and helpful as well. The inside of the house was beautifully decorated and everything was very clean. Susan was great and got back to us immediately with anything we needed. The restaurants next door on both sides were delicious and a short walk down the beach are more restaurants. We took surf lessons from Blue Horizon next door and they were great with us and our kids -

we all had so much fun. Can't recommend this place enough! We are counting down to the next time we can go! Pura Vida!

Well where do I start? We have been lucky enough to stay at "The Beach House" on two different occasions. There's something special about staying in a BEAUTIFUL home where the rainforest meets the sand. You can swim in the pool and then walk right out to a beautiful beach then have a short walk for lunch. The monkeys and iguanas will visit daily, which is always a treat! The staff is top notch and can/will handle any and all of your needs! My wife and I would recommend "The Beach House" to anyone visiting the Manuel Antonio area.

Best vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Much more than we expected. This Beachfront home was beautiful, clean & comfortable. You could lounge by the pool or walk to the beach or do both. Right in the heart of Manuel Antonio. My family and I feel this was one of the best places we have ever stayed at and love Costa Rica. The saying Pura Vida is so true in this lovely beach front home.
