  • Our Shangri-La

    "A family group of five adults, we were thrilled with our week-long Villa La Vista experience. The Villa is beautiful, and we so enjoyed hearing the comforting sounds of the ocean surf at all times of day. We happily spread out into the three spacious bedrooms (one in a separate apartment), each with its private ocean-view patio, and air-conditioning. We gathered in the main living area to enjoy the comfy chairs and sofa for reading and wifi time, or we moved on to the ocean-view patio, which everyone sought out from dawn ‘til dusk. That’s where we watched a sloth hanging out for twenty-four hours on a nearby tree; and that’s where the squirrel and white-faced monkeys visited us. Squirrel monkeys are not to be missed—they play like kittens! The kitchen was convenient and well-equipped, although we mainly prepared breakfast and lunch, as eating out was fun at the many nearby restaurants which we could easily walk to. With vegetarians in our group, we loved Café Milagro, which turned into one of our favorite spots for an occasional breakfast as well as dinner. Fred’s provided a fabulous view of the spectacular sunsets. The Villa, which is located on a dirt road, is very quiet and private—so private that it was possible to skinny dip in our own “plunge pool.” The pool is beautifully surrounded by flowering plants such as the magnificent hanging “lobster claw,” and it was our go-to spot for a fast refresher whenever we got too warm, for instance when we had made the walk back up the hill after a swim in the ocean. The ocean is just ten minutes down the road from the Villa; we couldn’t believe what felt like our own private white sand beach, with excellent surf! We were also thrilled to find trees lining the beach, so that we didn’t have to stay in the sun. Getting set up to stay at the Villa was made very easy by its owner, Nancy, who provided fast feedback and excellent information—everything one could want. The concierge, Geralyn, couldn’t have been more helpful, before and during our visit, from setting up tours to providing a birthday cake to calling cabs when our Spanish was insufficient. We were also grateful for the excellent attentions of the housekeeper, Lidette, and the groundskeeper, Chino. It was so very nice not to have to do laundry (unless we preferred to do it ourselves) and occasionally to have fresh sheets. Our only complaint? We should have stayed longer - and we will next year!"

  • Beautiful view, excellent vacation

    "Cannot say enough about the spacious, well-maintained villa; the gorgeous ocean view; the large, clean pool; the convenient location near anything you might want to do in Costa Rica; the great meals; the excellent staff; or the perfect place for relaxation and fun. The staff was superb with daily laundering, cleaning, meals and setting up all tours, transportation and excursions. Cool breezes during the day, and air conditioned bedrooms at night. Don't miss this adventure."

  • you cant beat this place, reasonably priced, best location, spectacular view, wifi, mini kitchen

    "This was our second stay at the small penthouse owned by Marc. Once again, we loved it very much!!! My husband and I stayed here for about a week this time at the end of July and beginning of August. I had forgotten about how nice the view was. And then, there was the open air shower and the monkeys we got to see from our very large balcony. I noticed another guest's review that said something about the wifi internet not working and having a problem with the a/c. We didn't have any issues with the Internet or the A/c. Our wifi internet worked well. We were even able to call back home, via whatsapp; and the a/c was nice and cold. We actually noticed that it was a new unit. We remembered the old unit from last year. Well, as I said before, this was our return trip to this small penthouse. As before, the employees were very nice. They helped us with our luggage and did a quick check-in for us. Their level of attention exceeded our expectations. We like having our laundry done. The maid, helped us with that. She was shy but efficient and nice. She remembered us from last year. She did our laundry for $10 US dollars, folded it and returned it back to us on the same day. We drove from San Jose, so our complimentary parking spot at Marc's penthouse is right next door to the condo, at the upper level; which was very convenient. Security is 100% vigilant. Parking is very secure. We walked to the beach a couple of times, usually right after breakfast. It was about 20 minutes to the beach. You can take the bus or a cab if you prefer, but we were in for the nice walk. It was very enjoyable. We noticed they opened a small super market, clothing store, yoga studio, bank and ATM next door to the complex; a huge plus for the area. I don't think you can get a better place around for this price. We liked the new full size fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. It was nice walking next door to the grocery store, fill up our fridge with edibles and use the microwave on rainy days. Best location and view for sure. This is by far the best area of town, centrally located and where the best hangout spots are, including restaurants and night life. You are at one of the highest elevations in all of Manuel Antonio, so the view is spectacular all around you. You don't even need a car here. Marc, the owner, is a nice and friendly guy and responds very quickly. Thank you once again Marc. I hope I get to back next year for my third trip."

  • Beautiful home in Manuel Antonio away from it all

    "My wife, eight year old son and I stayed at Casa Gina from 3/25-3/31/2016 and it is a wonderful home. Situated atop a high hill in a nice gated community you feel secluded, but you're only 2 minutes away from restaurants, sights and beaches. The home is well appointed, very clean and large enough to accommodate 6 very comfortably. You have all the comforts of home with washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, BBQ, pool, safe and alarm. They have an always hot hot water system that some complained about, and at first we agreed until we figured out to keep the handles about middle and the water will stay a pretty constant warm...otherwise you will cycle between extreme heat and then cold water. My one complaint is the wifi, it is very slow and only allows for checking email, sending text messages (no pictures in those) and maybe doing some light web browsing, but don't expect pages to load quickly. Also, don't expect to stream anything either, it was enough for what we needed, but had hoped for a slightly faster connection.You can expect to see sloths, monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds in the back yard, which was nice when we'd relax at the pool. Tip, if you are going to do any tours of any kind, they will usually pick you up right from the house or at least the front gate of the community saving you from having to find places there, which is not always easy since many streets don't have signs in CR. Take the ATV tour to Rainmaker, its a great area and has a local brewery there serving fantastic beer. Gary and Gina were very easy to work with and Jeannette and Carlos (the local contacts in Costa Rica) were great. We would definitely go back again and recommend this place to anyone!!"
