Welcome to paradise! Manuel Antonio is one of the most beautiful places on earth, rich in unique tropical vegetation and wildlife, with breath-taking views of the Pacific coastline, rain-forests and mountains.
Our two-bedroom condo offers any visitor to Costa Rica two important advantages: a quiet setting with commanding, unobstructed views of the ocean and coastline, and a wonderful, strategically located home base for exploring this region. Consider staying here, where the majority of our guests write a five star review about their experience and return again and again.
The Shana Residences website also has more information. We hope to introduce you to a place we love, and one we know you will love as well.
Please email me if you have any questions or would like to book a rental.

WHY OUR CONDO RATHER THAN A HOTEL?
Our spacious condo offers the luxuries, comfort, privacy and pampering of a fine home. For those of you traveling in groups of two to six, this is an ideal place for time together, as well as time apart from other tourists and visitors.
* Follow the early morning acrobatics of the Capuchin monkeys from one of the private bedroom balconies while enjoying a cup of Costa Rican coffee.
* Walk to two fabulous beaches from our condo, Bisanz Beach and Espadilla Beach.
* Simply hang-out on our balcony and watch dozens of magnificent bird species visit the rainforest below.
* Watch the stunning sunsets with your family and friends over appetizers and drinks from the living room or wide balcony with seating for six.
* Take a plunge in the pool below at the end of the day packed with adventure.
* Relax under the vast night sky and stars, listening to the sounds of the ocean.
* Does life get any better than this?
Our two-bedroom condo is much more affordable than two rooms in a comparable four-five star hotel. If you value certain things that hotels do not provide such as a fully furnished kitchen, a spacious living room, a washer and dryer (imagine going home with a suitcase of clean clothes!), snorkeling gear provided for your use, free secure, covered parking, steps away from our front door, this is the place for you.
* Nestled in the tropical rainforest with fabulous views of the ocean and mountains, away from the busy, noisy main thoroughfare of town.
* Walk to Bisanz Beach in 5 minutes or Espadilla Beach in 15 minutes.
* Walk to fine dining: the five-star Makanda by the Sea, the five-star Parador Hotel, Arenas del Mar and Issimo Suites, among others, or visit the fine on-site Gusto Restaurant in affiliation with the Shana Hotel.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF:
* The finest, unobstructed views in this complex.
* An on-site gourmet restaurant, managed by the Shana Hotel.
* An on-site spa and spa services.

About Nicole Bastian
Hi--my name is Nicole Bastian, and I am the reservations manager for the Shana Residences. I'm originally from Minnesota, though I have been living in Manuel Antonio for over 10 years.
Nicole Bastian purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Nicole Bastian chose Manuel Antonio
Both my family and I have stayed at the Shana Residences, and therefore I can attest to the amazing features that make it special.
What makes this Condo unique
Firstly, the setting is gorgeous--surrounded by rainforest (and animals!), and looking out over serene Bisanz bay. There is a short trail that leads down to Bisanz Beach--the beach with the smallest waves in Manuel Antonio, and the best snorkeling. The restaurant is (pricey but) good, and the pool / jacuzzi areas are divine. It's nice to be close to everything (1 km from the center of Manuel Antonio), but also be off the beaten path!

Amazing, spacious, condo with stunning views. The concierge is the best.
Incredible views. Very spacious. Has everything you need. So much wildlife to view right from one of the three balconies. White-faced monkeys everywhere and they visited our balcony. Howler monkeys and toucans can be heard nearby. The pool area/bar is very nice with plenty to do. Most importantly, Vanessa, the concierge, is the best. She was in communication with us in the months leading up to the trip and throughout to help us plan excursions and ensure that our stay was awesome.
A fantastic place to stay!
The condo was a perfect place to stay! Clean, large enough for family of 4 and the pool and amenities were wonderful. The view was fantastic and the balcony a perfect place to relax and have breakfast. Vanessa was super helpful in planning activities and the Shana staff were always available to help including Ruby and the pool bar staff.
The walk to the local beach was about 10 minutes with sloths and monkeys hanging out in the trees along the way.
I highly recommend staying here!
We had a perfect stay in Manuel Antonio! The view was unbelievable and the condo was gorgeous. Vanessa made us feel very well taken care of and Steven at the pool bar was the best! The monkeys were a riot to watch and the day trips were amazing. Our kids loved the private beach and cried when we left. Gracias! Pura Vida!!!!
Beauiful property. Well kept and plenty of amenities. Vanessa was great and booked us a guided hike in Manuel Antonio that was beyond anything we had hoped for. The condo is very large and well appointed. Great balconies and views. The hotel staff was great and gave us great restaurant advice. We highly recommend and would stay here again without a second thought.
Perfect home away from home
The condo was absolutely perfect for our family. Spacious, clean, nice layout, tastefully decorated, and stunning views of the Pacific. We had everything we could possibly need in our home away from home. Visits from monkeys on our balcony were some of the highlights of our 10 day trip. Owner was easy to work with. The location was perfect for all of our adventures. It is also a short drive to the restaurants, public beach, and Quepos so its central location to everything made our trip work really well. A 10 minute hike will get you to the local beach where you can rent chairs/umbrella and also get a drink and food. We were told that
food was not available at this beach so we packed it, but there actually was. We did not try anything but would next time. The pool right below the condo is very relaxing after a day of adventure and also hosts visits from the wildlife. Monkeys even stopped by the pool and one took a dip! What an experience to be there for that. We also were able to find a sloth in a tree right by the pool. You could not ask for a better place to stay.
We loved this property, it was very well taken care of and clean and spacious. Everything we needed was in the condo. I would definitely recommend it. We couldn't get the DVD to work though. We were wanting to look at pictures that we had from our excursions which were given to us by a guide and put on a DVD. Other than that it was amazing! Thank you.
