“Perfect!”
Reviewed 1 May 2009

There is nothing negative to say about this place. The house is great. The neighbors are very nice. The location is exactly what one should want in a relaxing get-away. Donna was an excellent host and bent over backwards to ensure that our stay was perfect. We highly recommend this as a relaxing escape from the every-day rat race.

We rented the entire house of Casa del Chaman in Feb 09. The upstairs apartment is great. Theres a full kitchen and a washer/dryer which we made good use of. We loved going to the local market and stocking up on fruit and eating it every day, as well as being able to store lots of cold drinks in the fridge. You can pack light, they provided beach towels even though we brought our own, and were able to wash them along with clothes. Everyone who lives in the development is friendly and helpful. We saw monkeys EVERY day, as well as lizards and tons of cool bugs. We had a praying mantis come visit us every night, he did funny dances on the wall. The beds were ok, this is Costa Rica so dont expect hotel quality beds or furniture. The large closet in the bedroom was awesome, we didnt need to look at suitcases or clothes for a week. There were a lot of towels in the bathroom, plenty of utensils/cups/plates, etc in the kitchen, A/C, pretty much anything you could need was there. The downstairs apartment is "ok". The jacuzzi tub would probably take an entire day to fill, so no one used it. The downstairs apartment is a bargain rental and does not have the full kitchen like upstairs or washer/dryer. They have a coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. Definitely a good deal in Manuel Antonio, we used to stay in a hotel for a week for double the cost of this house and this had more amenities. You can get a cleaning service if you want it! Its very safe and quiet and away from road noise. We'll be back!

My husband and I decided to come to Manuel Antonio for our honeymoon last May. We had a very hard time finding an affordable yet nice vacation rental and after a weeks worth of small pricey hotels we found Chaman villas. We were able to stay for the full 3 weeks and this place was amazing. The villa we stayed at was immaculate and well equiped but the surroundings couldn't be more perfect, Everyday we saw monkeys, iguanas, tucans, butterflies and the occational sloth. The location of this place was the best part, 4 restaurants within walking distance and a bus stop on the corner, we didn't have to rent a car so we were able to take more tours. We couldn't find any advertizing about this place but we recommend it to anyone. We loved it so much we came back this year and we will probably come back the next.
