Manuel Antonio Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF:

*The finest, unobstructed views in this complex.

*An on-site gourmet restaurant, managed by the Shana Hotel.

We love this place and the monkeys!

  • 5 of 5

This is our absolute favorite place to stay in Manuel Antonio. We visit Costa Rica every year with our three kids and this was our third time in a row at Shana Residences. Dr. Spivey's unit is our favorite because of its tasty decor and perfect location over the pool. It is also very well equipped with everything in the kitchen, laundry room, beach towels and toys etc. We travel a lot and mostly find our places to stay through vrbo or homeaway due to our big family. We have a few favorite places that we like to return to in different locations but have found that after a few years many of these places have experienced too much wear and tear and are not so attractive anymore. Fortunately, this is not the case withDr. Spivey's unit. They seem to be very good at updating the unit so that it always looks fresh. This time we found new sofa, fresh coat of paint on the walls, new towels etc. The staff at the Shana hotel and residences as well as with the management company are all very friendly and helpful. Thank You for letting us stay at this beautiful condo again.

Absolutely perfect play to stay in Manuel Antonio area

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, including two teen boys, had a fantastic stay in Manuel Antonio. We walked into the condo from a long drive and the view took our breath away. The view is spectacular, and the balcony was perfect for our sunrise coffee listening to the sounds of the jungle, and our evening martini. The condo is perfectly appointed, comfortable beds, and a great kitchen layout. David, the condo owner, sent us excellent materials on the condo, the Shana complex, and Manuel Antonio, and the property manager, Vanessa was an absolute sweetheart. She arranged a guide for a Manuel Antonio walk who was equally charming. Playa Biesanz is gorgeous, the jungle comes right down to the shoreline. We walked down every afternoon, it's a virtual private beach (and nice not to have to worry about crocs or rip tides with the boys). The local restaurants were terrific; La Mariposa had a stunning view, El Avion was kitchy-fun with a history lesson added on, pizza from El Gusto was delicious (spoke French with the Italian chef since my Spanish isn't as good as it should be). We love, love, love Costa Rica. Everyone we met was very kind and gracious. My only regret was not taking David's travel advice regarding bringing a small pair of binoculars. Do NOT forget these, even if you don't consider yourself a bird expert. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your piece of heaven on earth!

Spacious with beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this condo. It is well laid out with plenty of room to spread out. The pool area is very nice and relaxing. You can walk to two beaches and could even walk to the National park if you were up for a decent hike. The location is good and there are many restaurants within less than a mile. we had a great stay with our family of five:)

A Peaceful Oasis in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just returned from an amazing week here. We were welcomed with a beautiful basket of delicious local fruit. We enjoyed eating breakfast and playing cards each day on the main balcony, enjoying the peaceful setting, watching a wide variety of birds, and getting visited by capuchin monkeys several times! We also were treated to some fabulous sunsets.

The kitchen had everything we needed so we cooked some of the time but also appreciated the owners' recommendations on places to eat when we went out. The rooms and bathrooms are quite spacious so there was plenty of room for all of us and the beds were very comfortable. The owners have really anticipated your needs, so you don't need to worry about bringing things like umbrellas or beach towels. We so appreciated the detailed information and recommendations from the owners that we received in advance which helped us pack lightly.

We ventured down to the nearby beach a couple of times and were grateful that the reception desk could call down to Big Al to arrange chairs and an umbrella for us. We also tried surfing and swimming at the beach close to Manuel Antonio Park. The condo is so beautifully decorated that it made for a wonderfully peaceful place to return to and relax after a day in the sand and sun.

The wait staff from the on-site restaurant circulated regularly around the pool so it was easy to order a drink or a snack in between dips in the pool. Vanessa oriented us and was readily available for any questions we had throughout our stay and helped us book an amazing day with Quepo Canyoning.

This is a truly amazing place to enjoy the paradise that is Costa Rica!

Perfect for family of five

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at this condo. The views are spectacular, and we spent hours looking at the ocean and the pool below. The views inside the condo are also beautiful; it is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen was clean and well-stocked, so we were able to do a lot of cooking there. The air conditioning is zoned, and worked well. The wifi worked well for us too. We are a family of five with three teenagers, and there was plenty of room.

Right from the start, the owners were wonderfully responsive and helpful. At the condo, Vanessa was terrific, and helped us set up our adventures with local guides. The guides we got were tremendous--I don't think we just got lucky. Vanessa knows the best ones.

There is a lot to do in this area. The pool is large and inviting, and Bisanz beach is within walking distance, with a bigger beach with bigger waves just minutes away by car in Manuel Antonio. If you are up for a hilly walk or run, you can go directly from the condo. We saw sloths, howler monkeys, bats, stick insects, toucans, coatis, iguanas and more in the national park, but we wouldn't have seen them without a guide, so don't go alone. We had great zip line and kayak experiences as well.

Altogether, we had a lovely, relaxing, and active vacation, and we give this condo the highest possible recommendation.
