We stayed at Villa Vagia over Christmas and loved the home and Manuel Antonio. The views from this home are incredible and the infinity pool overlooking the beach is spectacular. There was lots to do for the kids (ages 5-12) to stay busy - they delighted in the pool and all the animal visitors. We had monkeys visit daily and Bob the iguana showed up almost every day at 3 pm to say hi. This house is well stocked and has just about everything you need to make the stay easy and relaxing. Vanessa was our concierge and she organized great tours, got us in touch with a Chef who cooked dinner two nights, and answered our questions and needs during our stay. We walked to both beaches and to the restaurants, which was a good workout with all the hills and adventure with the narrow streets. It was also easy to get a cab to go out.
The one down side to our visit was the fourth bedroom is not technically in the main part of the house. We traveled with my parents and my sister's family of four and would have liked to use the fourth bedroom. Unfortunately because of the location and musty smell we chose not to use it and all bunked in the three main rooms - which are a good size. We wish we had known this and had asked several questions about this room and were somewhat disappointed we couldn't use it.
CASA AGUILITA was spectacular and Mia, the home owner was equally spectacular. The pictures do not do this property justice. Sitting high on a mountain top, the 360 degree views of the mountains in back and pacific ocean in front were breathtaking. There was nothing our family of six wanted for during our week long stay in this beautiful pristine home. The house was modern, clean and had everything you could possibly need. The beds were extremely comfortable and the pull out in the den was perfect for two of our four teens. Mia, the home owner, truly went above and beyond from the moment we booked Casa Aguilita to the moment we left. She set up our transportation to and from the airport, arranged for our car rental drop off and return, provided wonderful recommendations for excursions and if that wasn't enough, she personally booked all of our tours which, by the way, were amazing. Our kids (ages 18-21) particularly loved the all day waterfall tour with Paddle 9 where they jumped off cliffs into various falls. I loved the private tour through the rain-forest with HP travels. Dixon was an awesome guide. Tiki Canopy tour was also fantastic family fun. Tour guides make or break excursions. Thank you Mia for setting us up for complete success with fantastic tour guides and awesome tours. My family and I LOVED our stay at Casa Aguilita and will definitely be back for another visit.
