We stayed here for a few days in May 2012 as a side trip from Jaco. I researched the entire area for a week for accommodations for a couple, an adult child, and 2 young adult friends. We usually stay be the sea when we travel, but after seeing Manny's houses, we were sold on the mountain views.
We needed a kitchen and enough beds to accommodate this crowd. Manny's place was the only logical choice! Was a great base for day trips into the area.
The rent was reasonable, the views and wildlife (flocks of birds, sloth) were fantastic, and the house was very comfortable. Awesome sunsets. We had the huge pool pretty much to ourselves. Manny is the perfect, gracious host - there when you wanted to chat or needed something.
I highly recommend staying with Manny in one of his lovely houses if you are in the area.
One note: The road is steep getting up to the houses - after all, you *are* on the side of a mountain with awesome views. We didn't have a 4x4 and I was a bit nervous going up the first time. Best way was to put it in low and go rather fast and just keep on going... don't stop. Second time was easy.
