About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

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.

This website will 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.

Thank you,

David Spivey

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 fabuous beaches from our condo, Biesanz 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?

AFFORDABILITY:

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.

LOCATION:

*Nestled in the tropical rainforest with fabulous views of the ocean and mountains, away from the busy, noisy main thoroughfare of town.

*Walk to Biesanz Beach in 10 minutes or Espadilla Beach in 20 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.

*The finest, unobstructed views in this complex.

True Beauty

  • 5 of 5

When we opened the door we were taken away by the immediate view of the ocean and jungle. Absolutely breath taking. We could not have been more pleased with our stay in this condo. Everything is exactly as described; luxurious. From the furniture to the linens; wonderful! It was the perfect eco setting for a true Costa Rican experience. We watched many storms roll in and were amazed at the beauty of them. The deck is the perfect place to watch the sunset, the stroms and the monekys in the trees!

Very nice and spacious

  • 4 of 5

This property is very nice, (starting to show it's age although) the view is fantastic, the balcony's are very spacious and comfortable. Vanessa our concierge was fabulous and made sure our time in Manuel Antonio was enjoyable. Now for the Shana hotel, they change their policy towards the residence (where the condo is) when ever they choose. The general manager there Mr Samir either has never run a successful hotel before or never ran a hotel period, his restaurant is so over priced and the menu (besides pizza) is way to large and off the wall. If you decide to order in from somewhere else forget it they won't allow them on the property. He shut the water off at 10 am in the middle of my shower (they shut off the water at midnight to refill the reserve tanks) for the hotels use and when we complained he said oh sorry our mistake (two nights in a row). The condo is well equipped in the kitchen to make most of your meals (knives need sharpening) so if your in to cooking it's a great place. That been said there are a great many excellent restaurants within a short drive. Just ask Vanessa and she will not steer you wrong.

Owner's Response: Our condo has a property manager who operates independently of the Shana Hotel. He and his team offer first rate service to our guests. During the stay of this guest, there were some water shortages town-wide in Manuel Antonio. Every property was required to make adjustments to assure adequate water reserves. We regret this occured during his stay and the inconvenience it caused, but this was a temporary situation that effected all properties in town. We offer all of our guests a long list of recommendations for dining in town. We warn them that some properties, including the restaurant within our complex are on the pricey side. We also give our guests a list of options which are more affordable. We and our team of property managers try our very best to help guests navigate the nuances of the tourist scene in Manuel Antonio. Please read the many reviews below to get a fuller perspective of the experiences of many previous guests. David Spivey

A Happy Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed a fabulous Christmas holiday in this beautiful condo. It had all the comforts of home plus a gorgeous, panoramic view. The location was close to the beach and Manuel Antonio Park. Our concierge, Vanessa, recommended some great tours and restaurants and booked everything so all we had to do was relax and enjoy. We definitely hope to return again. Pura Vida!

Best Condo Rental Evert

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in may rental condos, cabins, villas and inns and this

rental unit has been the best by far. It is well appointed with

beautiful furniture, art work, appliances,cookware, bedding, towels

and everything that makes a house a home. You would think you were in

someones primary residence, and not a rental property. It has amazing

views of the ocean and mountains and overlooks a beautiful pool with

an infinity edge. While on the main balcony/terrace (three in all), we

were able to see monkeys in the distant trees.

We were a party of two couples traveling from Atlanta and this condo

was perfect for us. It has a master suite and a second bedroom of

almost equal size. Both rooms have king size beds, balconies and

enormous on-suites.The showers are huge. The living room, dining area

and kitchen were spacious and main balcony seemed to be our primary

lounging spot. The kitchen had high end matching cookware, small

appliances, glassware, and service ware. If cooking is not your thing,

the property had an excellent restaurant, and many others in walking

distance.

The concierge, Vanessa was amazing. She arranged to have our condo

stocked with food, snacks and beverages for our arrival. THAT is a

GREAT service; no need to rush out to the local market after your ride

in from the airport. Vanessa also arranged our transportation to and

from the airport as well as daily excursions and taxi service.

This condo unit is definitely a 5 STAR PROPERTY !
