Paradise in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing. The view is unbelievable. Bonus having housekeeping. The Capuchin monkeys visiting us on the balcony was over the top. Be aware the rooms on the middle level are separate connected by an outdoor hall,which we enjoyed feeling more outdoors. Very kind staff and well kept property.

Good Things To Say

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited about this trip and the stay in the Jurate Suite. Vanessa, the building concierge, contacted us pre-arrival with lots of helpful information, and helped us with transportation planning, grocery orders/delivery, and tour bookings. All was set! and then 12 hours before our flight to Costa Rica the unthinkable happened. My husband had a stroke, was in the hospital and couldn't travel. I had to cancel the trip. The property owners/management communicated with me right away, and were amazingly kind and supportive. So, I just wanted people to know that this was such an amazing experience, even in the face of a traumatic situation, and they handled it so well.

This is an atypical review, in that we didn't actually get to stay in the Jurate Suite as planned.

But I am looking forward to re-booking this vacation, staying at this property, and meeting these wonderful people in person so I can thank them. Mil gracias a todos!

The pictures of the property are exactly as advertised. The views are awesome. The locations is minutes from everywhere in Manuel Antonio. The owner went our of her may to make sure we felt like we were at home and even offered to grocery shop for us before arrival. I also rent vacation properties in FL and very picky about my vacation experiences. IT DOES NOT GET BETTER THAN THIS.

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here in July and had a great time. The apartment is part of a larger villa with 4 apartments--but is small enough to feel like a B&B, and very private. The views are spectacular, and the pool area is ideal. We spent the majority of the time lounging around the pool (there's a fridge, bbq grill and sink there), listening to Manuel Obregon on the stereo--very relaxing!
