About Alina Pekarsky

We are a family of 5 from Palm Coast Florida, who fell in love with this home the minute we walked in through the front door of this amazing place. We came to stay for vacation and found out that the home was available to purchase. The decision was instant, this home has all we ever dreamed of: amazing location, gorgeous views, one of a kind beach and serenity we never experienced before . We traveled the world as a family and there was never a one place we felt so good about and wanted to have to come back to for many years to come. Since we cannot always be there to enjoy, we are happy to share it with other families.

Why Alina Pekarsky chose Manuel Antonio

This home is a perfect family destination. It will easily accommodate 2-4 families with kids. The location is close to everything and the most important walking distance to an amazing private beach, which is located in a quiet cove with white sand , protected from winds and any traffic. All you will see is cows walking around or laying and relaxing by the water. Your kids will enjoy collecting shells or snorkeling by cliffs going in to the ocean with lots of marine life to explore. This home home has so much to do and explore without ever leaving . There is a beautiful garden with avocado and mango trees you can pick and enjoy when in season. Great refreshing pool, you can sip wine and spend evenings watching sunset over Pacific ocean and you will feel like you are in haven. This is a one of a kind home in Manuel Antonio.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to a private beach, walking distance to Ronnys Place Restaurant, a popular place to have romantic meals and drinks. this property has it all. You can watch a gorgeous sunset over the Pacific ocean from the pool deck or any living area of the house. The views are amazing. One must see and experience to believe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a great place. Centrally located in the Manuel Antonio/Quepos area. Felt very private and safe, yet close to everything. A million dollar view.. Really, I think this was the best view in all of MA. The host exceeded my expectations providing us with a phone and daily maid service. The dive company recommended to us in Uvita was amazing. Couldn't have been a better experience. Thank you!!

Beautiful house, private location, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house with 4 couples and had more than enough room. In fact, the spare guest house/room went entirely unused since we didn't need it. Lots of open space, surrounded by ceiling to floor glass that open up to bring the outside in. The views from this house are fantastic, looking down at the ocean from the infinity pool and so much wildlife right in the yard. We saw Monkeys, Tucan, Scarlet Macaw, fruit bats, lizards and many other animals right from the porch! The location is private, yet only a couple minutes to town and great beaches, food, shopping and walking distance to a very nice restaurant on the same road (Ronny's Place) with spectacular sunset views. We had an amazing time here, and the property management folks were fantastic to work with (Lori, Andres etc). They helped us with getting all of our tours/excursions and transportation to/from the house with lots of great local tips. Thanks for everything, we had a wonderful time here!

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The house is amazing and has spectacular views. There were 9 of us and we had plenty of room. The pool looks small but it worked for the 9 of us. The house has WiFi and it works great. If you fly into San Jose it's a good 2.5 hour drive so make sure you arrive in the day. The roads are 2 lane highways and hard to see at night.

The outside room had an issue with the lock. The lock was broken and you could insert anything and the door would open We notified Andres but the problem was not corrected. So we had to double up people in two rooms. (very disappointed) We are in another country so my son didn't feel comfortable staying in a room on the outside of the house that wouldn't lock..

Lori did a great job managing all the excursions the companies she chose were professional and we enjoyed every excursion. I would highly suggest booking your excursions through them. Thank you Lori for being so organized.

The Chef and his wife did an amazing job. The food was spectacular and the pina coladas were out of this world. The Chef does all the shopping, cooks and cleans up. We very much enjoyed the food.

We chose to rent a car. The garage will accommodate 2 cars. Please be aware Costa Rica requires you to get insurance. So the 2 cars were $400 for the week. The insurance was $1000. The rental company insisted we purchase the insurance as a requirement in Costa Rica. Lori did tell us she could arrange transportation.

The trip was amazing and the house is absolutely beautiful. The view from the back deck are unbelievable. It was so relaxing and a slower pace of life. I would highly suggest reading the binder at the house your first day. There are great suggestions for groceries and other important information. THANK YOU!

Owner's Response: Dear Sylvia, thank you very much for your detailed and honest review. We are so happy you had enjoyed your stay. We will absolutely change locks in the outside room. The way to avoid having to pay mandatory insurance in CR is to have a letter binder from your US credit card or insurance company saying that they cover you outside of US. They are really pushy at those rental places but if you have the letter, they will accept it. We hope to see you come and stay with us again soon!

Amazing house, Amazing service!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing vacation ever! I traveled with my family vacation (a total of 10) and we had the times of our lives!! Costa Rica is the most beautiful place ever, and the people are genuinely kind, honest, and simply beautiful people. Our stay at Casa Playa Vista was absolutely flawless. We planned this vacation way in advance and Lori answered all my questions via email. Once we arrived, (we traveled in July 2018) Andres made sure our stay was perfect. He booked all of our tours/adventures. These were very, very nice adventures for everyone in our group. We never had to worry about booking a fun day, or booking transportation. He booked it all for us. We went zip lining, ATV bikes in the jungle after the rain so it was a muddy amazing time!, horse-back riding, rafting, and we also booked a boat to go snorkeling and so much more. I cannot say enough about the service Andres provided and about the kind people of Costa Rica. We also spent some "lazy evenings" at Casa Playa Vista while the kids played in the pool, we enjoyed the sights, the ocean views, and the sunset. We hired a Chef for 3 of our nights (recommended by Lori), and Chef Paige was fantastic. If I had to do it again, I would book a chef or 2 for everyday of the week. The food Chef Paige cooked was superb and its worth much more that spending money and time at restaurants. Thank you Lori, and Thank you Andres for such an amazing vacation! My family and I are truly grateful. We hope to be back one day :)

Perfect view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed 3 nights. Best communication of any place we stayed. The views from the house are 5 star. The pool was perfect, main areas were very nice. Only two rooms have ensuite bathrooms which wasn’t a big problem for our group but may help you plan your stay. We used the groceries and chef options available, both of which I highly recommend! Cove is a 5min walk but not great for swimming. Birds, lizards, crabs all plantiful, we had scarlet macaws playing in the trees in front of the house. So amazing!
