About Scott and Crystal Forrest
My Wife and I first came to Costa Rica with our 5 children in May of 2012 and fell in love with the country and its people. We have been many times since with a year stay in the Brasilito area in 2014-2015 so the kids could go to school, learn another language and culture. We returned back to Canada knowing that one day we would own a little piece of paradise. 2018 would be the year!! We purchase Casa Manana with the intentions of sharing our home to other families who want experience Costa Rica's beauty .
Scott and Crystal Forrest purchased this House in 2018

Pool with a view!
We recently traveled to Costa Rica with our three young boys in March. Casa Mañana was a very comfortable and well appointed home for our family. Our boys are real nature lovers and the abundance of beautiful iguanas around the property were the delight of our kids! The howler monkeys that could be heard in the surrounding trees was very exciting as well. We visited in March which is a pretty warm time in Costa Rica, but the lovely and perfectly warm pool provided days of fun and relief from the hot afternoons. And the view of the ocean from the pool and outdoor patio was wonderful too!
Grethel, the property manager, was very kind a helpful with lots of information about the town.
Thanks so much for the review!
We are glad you enjoyed our home!
We had the best family vacation ever!!
We planned this family vacation to celebrate several milestones, we were not disappointed at all! The house was fantastic, we especially loved the large, private pool! House was very clean, kitchen well supplied with everything we needed. The maid was awesome and Grethel was very accommodating and helpful! Nice, short walk to the beautiful Hermosa Beach, everyone was extremely friendly and kind!
Needless to say we love Cost Rica! Pura Vida!

Thank you for staying at Casa Manana. We’re very happy you enjoyed your stay in our home and look forward to your next stay!
We will pass your kind words on to Grethel and the rest of the staff
Better than Advertised, Perfect for a Family in a Secure and Safe place! 5 Stars *****
We could not have asked for this house to be better equipped and any more comfortable to move into, for our family vacation. Plenty of linens and the kitchen had every implement you could desire in a rental. The pool was continually entertaining for the children as well as the adults. The water overlook was lovely, with exceptional sunset views. Very convenient to Playa Coco for fishing or shopping etc, plus other close beaches to just sit back and relax at. We took in many adventures from zip lining, hot springs, horse riding, mud bath, fishing, beach time, hiking, folk art, coffee, howler monkeys and much more fun stuff, within an easy drive. A very easy commute from the Liberia airport. Gretel the local representative was very accommodating and checked on us regularly. Dirk our host was quick to answer any questions or concerns we had. Thanks to them both.
I don't give 5 Stars too often...but this place earned it.
WOW!!! Thanks for such an amazing review and so glad you guys enjoyed your stay! I'll pass on your comments to Grethel and our other staff. Thanks again!!!
Superb house close to beautiful Playa Hermosa
We just recently returned from a week long stay at Casa Manana and could not be more happy with our decision to stay here. The house was well kept, and there was plenty of room for 5 of us. The ocean view was great while relaxing by the pool which was somehow the perfect temperature both day and night. The king sized bed was so comfortable after a long day of waterfalls, ziplining, and snorkeling. The beach is a very short drive (could easily be walked) and was one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches that I've been to. Loved everything about our stay, only wish we could have stayed longer. There is so much to see and do in the area or you could easily spend every day at the beautiful beach or by the pool!
Thank you for writing such a nice review!!! It was a pleasure getting to visit with you and do appreciate the waterfall tip! I had no idea it was that close to our place. I'll ask Grethel for directions next time we're down. So glad you guys enjoyed your stay and hope to have you and your family back again!
" The most accommodating and relaxing house we ever been to "
As soon as I booked the house Dirk sent me an e-mail and his phone number, he was great to deal with and an excellent communicator, he also recommended a few near by places to eat and to visit.
We stayed a week in casa manana and we enjoyed every minute of our stay, from the beginning arriving to the house, which is located in a gated community with a guard 24-7, so you feel the most secure all the time. The house has everything you will required from linens, towels to seasonings in the kitchen so it made it so easy to do a home cook meal or if you prefer walk down for a couple of blocks and find a few restaurants. Also you have a basketball and tennis court inside the community.
Needless to say we had the most amazing time in this beautiful house, we enjoyed the pool as well as all the space and we never felt cramped for a group of 10.
Thanks again Dirk and we definitely would love to come back to your place, hopefully in the near future. Pura vida!

Thanks for your great review!!! Glad to hear you guys enjoyed your stay. Let me know when you're heading back our way!
Wonderful staff and house! Very open and roomy for our group. We especially enjoyed having Katherine from Rocio’s kitchen come to the house and cook fresh local food for us! Highly recommended! Lots of fun things to do in Hermosa and Playa Del Coco nearby. We’d love to return sometime!
