Beautiful view, close to everything
"We were here a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All amenities and the ocean are within walking distance. We did rent a car but only because we wanted to explore other areas nearby. Bus transportation to National Park and Quepos is easy and inexpensive. We stayed in the one bedroom with a beautiful view of the ocean from the veranda. A convenience store and restaurants are all within walking distance. The pool is a short walk down the stairs where we could relax after a day of exploring. Note that the howler monkeys are your alarm clock routinely in the morning if you are a light sleeper. Also, if you are not a night owl, the music from the venues nearby could be loud occasionally. Overall, we had an excellent stay. Anna, Richard and David were very helpful with plenty of tips for our travels. We highly recommend this economical vacation rental!"

Canot convey the awesome of this place. If you hate to camp but love nature this is your place.
"Villa Tekla is your spot if you like "glamping" Camping with all the amenities, refrigerator, stove, TV, WiFi, hot water and a private pool! A very thought out villa that uses the idea of openness to bring you into the surrounding rain forest. I will have to warn that there are no glass windows in the Villa (master bedroom downstairs is fully screened in) and that unnerved me at first, but with the view and everything you'll forget about that in minutes. After spending only 16 hours on the property I saw Toucans, sloths, small poisons looking frogs and a myriad of birds and butterflies I can't even keep track of. Yes nature may visit inside, as we had several birds pop into the rooms, house geckos to help with keeping the bugs down and the special occasion was when a wayward two toed sloth decided to take a stroll along the gates, the main living room windows and overhang. That is something I will never forget.
One word of advice don't leave the main white lights on in any room during the night for a long time. We made that mistake the second day and it became bug central, but hey you're visiting a place that has a huge amount of wildlife and to me it was a plus!
Waking up to the morning sun (due to damn loud monkeys and birds) on the patio with a coffee was just amazing. The views are spectacular and just being in the canopy of a rainforest is something I doubt anyone would forget.
All rooms have very powerful ceiling fans that facilitate the airflow to make the house very comfortable even during times of high heat and humidity. One day reached 98 degrees F 100% humidity but inside it was a comfortable 75-80 F degrees. The tiered layout of the house made me feel like a kid again (I'm 46). Plenty of room for several couples (only 2 of us but could accommodate 4-6 easily) as long as you aren't concerned about privacy, as the house is constructed for maximum airflow to keep it cool so there are very few doors which may make some westerners uncomfortable. And how can you not resist a private pool (just about 6ft deep).
Fully functioning kitchen with coffee maker, blender (most important for pina coladas!), toaster, microwave, full size refrigerator and stove and most all pots/pans you can think of. The knives were actually sharp!
It's only 1/4 of a mile to a very well stocked market which had more European cheeses than my local grocer in DC does! People in Manuel Antonio are very friendly and helpful.

"Gorgeous house and an even more amazing view! We saw lots of Tucans and iguanas! The house and property was immaculate, it had all the amenities you could need. It was secluded and private but when you needed to go to the store, it was only 20 minutes away! The closest town of Parrita just opened a new grocery store that had everything you needed. Oscar was able to pick us up at the airport and he was more than accommodating and was also able to drive is back to San Jose too. their are waterfalls and a zip line tour just minutes from the house. Their are lots of beautiful beaches nearby but we ventured to Manuel Antonio which was about 45 minutes and it was well worth it so see the scenery and wildlife."

"We loved our stay at Casa Alta. There were five of us and there was more than enough room - the house could easily have held 2 or 3 more without feeling crowded. Our kids loved the pool- it was a nice size for the 3 of them to play in. The AC in the bedrooms worked well, and the WIFI was reliable. We were pleasantly surprised to find that all of the furnishings had been updated and the bathrooms renovated, so the house was even more lovely than in the pictures.
The house is a short drive to the beach and to the park. We found it convenient to have a rental car--many of the restaurants and supermarkets are walking distance, but the car allowed us to do a variety of day trips to other parks and nearby towns. Natalia set up a night tour for us, which was amazing.
We highly recommend the house- it met all of our expectations."
