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.
Gorgeous and comfortable home.
Difficult to think of anything we did not like. Off the beaten path, secluded (bumpy gravel/dirt access road). Terrific views of the ocean. Comfortable beds and furniture. All the amenities we needed. Pool was a hit, especially for the kids. Lots of bulls wandering outside the fence. Wildlife visible from the patios.
Friendly and helpful property managers. Private chef was fantastic! We highly recommend him. Ronnie’s up the road was also quite good. It was a great spot!
Amazing Time in Manuel Antonio/Quepos
This house is awesome and has everything it advertises and more. The difference maker is Bob the owner. We scheduled many activities: catamaran ride, Jungle Buggy Tour, Zip lining, deep sea fishing, surfing, and a day at the beach. Bob helped insure all the activities were scheduled, reserved and made the trip so easy to plan. They were all outstanding and we had so much fun experiencing the local area, animal life, plant life, and the people.
We tried many of the local restaurants and all of them were delicious. Ronny's has to be are favorite. One evening Ronny's even cooked up the fish we caught. Nothing like eating fish that was swimming in the ocean 5 hours before it was cooked!
We had three families with 12 people ranging in ages of 8 to 50 and everyone had a blast! Certainly a trip we will never forget. If you have reservations about a trip to this house in Costa Rica stop worrying. It won't disappoint. We will certainly be back next time we visit Costa Rica.
Our stay at Playa Vista was great! The house is beautiful and has the most amazing views. It accommodated our group of 10 very comfortably. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy!
We loved watching the birds and iguanas that visited everyday. The pool was perfect for relaxing after busy days.
Bob who helped us plan everything was great. He helped us arrange transportation to and from the airport, all our excursions, chef meals and groceries for the house. This truly made the trip so easy!! No need to rent a car!
We had 3 dinners prepared for us by Javier, which was such a nice treat. I highly suggest having a meal or two cooked for you.
All the excursions were amazing, surf lessons, fishing, white water rafting and zip lining. It’s hard to say which was best, there is definitely plenty to do in the area.
I would highly recommend staying at Playa Vista, it was hard to leave this paradise!
Great Group Family Trip
We are four families - 8 adults and 5 kids - for a weeklong stay the beginning of June! We loved the house, layout, pool, etc. Just as described on the website. As we booked all of our activities in advance, I really didn't have too many questions for Bob, except the Chef Hire, Additional Maid Days and Shopping List, and we barely spoke with Andres the house manager either. We would definitely return. All of us loved Chef Javier, we only had him scheduled for 3 dinners, but after the 1st night, we added him for a 4th time. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Best view in the area!
We had a small group of 5 girls, so the house was extra huge for us, but that’s exactly what we wanted! We each had our own room and 3 had their own bathroom, with a very large double to share for the other 2. Would be perfect for 5 couples, and even a couple kids beds. The pictures online don’t even compare, when you see this place in person, the beauty and all window views will amaze and stun you! We had a personal chef our first night and it was affordable and so much good food we had left overs to eat the next day! They were very professional and cleaned up the mess in no time, and a pleasure to have around! Andres the house manager was available at all times to answer our many questions and help with anything we needed, including a couple grocery runs. He also arranged for us to have private massages at the house two of the days. And they were the best massages I’ve ever had! We ended up not needing to rent a car because the cab service was so easy and convenient.
The only surprise we had was on the last day of our stay, the property owners planned a four wheeling race through the property. Not exactly quiet, or private, but we worked around it. It also says private beach on the listing, but upon arrival we were informed we would not be the only ones able to access it, but it was nice and we were able to swim in the water, and use the beach chairs the house provides.
All in all, great place to stay, just not as private as I had expected!
Jamie, thank you for your very honest and detailed review. I am sorry the owner of the empty land next to our house decided to race 4 wheelers, not us the owner of the home, that never happened before. As far as the beach, only people with keys to the gates are able to access. Unfortunately not only our home. We thank you once again and it has been our great pleasure hosting you. We hope to see you back again soon!
The house was absolutely beautiful. Everyone had a wonderful time. we had no issues. There is a beautiful view of the Ocean and we saw Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, Monkeys, and many other species of animals. This is a bird watcher's paradise while sitting in a cool pool. 100% recommendation for anyone who wants to stay here. Centrally located in the heart of Manuel Antonio with unending options for dining, activities, beaches, cannopy tours,...etc. Wonderful Time!!
David, thank you so much for your beautiful review. It was our pleasure hosting your family. We hope to see you back again soon!
