“Paradise on the beach”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Discovery Beach house is one of the only houses you can rent that is steps from the beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Sabrina set everything up for us with local establishments that were fun and trustworthy, she also gave us helpful suggestions and answered all of our questions. The housekeepers and watchmen kept the house, pool and yard spotless, they were friendly and helpful to our children, having them around gave us a sense of security. The drivers that picked us up and dropped us off at the airport showed sights, took us grocery shopping and helped us with restaurant ideas. We didn't need to leave home to see the wildlife, the iguanas, sloths and monkeys visited us!! Go hermit crab hunting on the beach at dusk!! Also, have Desiree and Juan come and cook for you, delicious! We loved it there, I would recommend staying at the beach house to everyone. We would love to go back again and again!

We work with a botanist and have planted 60 trees to enrich the natural foraging route of the local wildlife that keeps that comes right through our property. It's wonderful to hear how much your family enjoyed the experience. We aim to give you an all-fun and worry-free vacation experience and look forward to your return.

“If you are visiting the Manuel Antonio area, this is the place to stay!”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was our 1st time visiting Costa Rica and The Discovery Beach house and we can't wait to go back. The house is beautiful, comfortable and clean. You can't beat the location! It is within walking distance or a short cab ride to many shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. The kitchen and house are well equipped with 3 bedrooms and 4 full baths with a shower in each. The pool and patio, which includes a grill and prep area, make hanging out at the house very relaxing and enjoyable, but if you'd rather hang out at the beach, that's easy too... It's only a few steps away. We loved seeing the monkeys come down for a visit, too.
We felt very safe with having someone that watches the property 24 hours a day.
Sabrina, along with the staff went out of their way for us and truly made our vacation a vacation! We highly recommend The Discovery Beach House and hope to be back soon!

Making our guests feel safe and protected is a high priority with us. We recently converted the upstairs laundry room into a 4th bathroom. Thank you for reinforcing it was the right decision. Our staff says hello and looks forward to pampering you in paradise again in the not too distant future.

“A Wonderful Experience For All!”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We just returned from a week at Discovery Beach House and WOW what a great choice it was to stay here! Where to start, well how about the people, before we arrived we were in contact with Sabrina who acts as a concierge for the property. Sabrina is a wonderful person and is someone who really understands customer service. She wants you to get the most out of your trip and looks after everything you need. She is also a lot of fun to work with and helped to make everything easy, relaxing and perfect for us. Manuela, who looked after housekeeping for us is a real gem. She is helpful and her kind personality shines. Juan, her husband who did most of the security\property work for us was also very kind and helpful. We always felt in good hands when he was around! The property is as advertised, very clean in great shape it was perfect for the six of us, Lots of interesting artifacts and cool personal touches with the interior decorations. Also tons of wildlife in your backyard. We had squirrel and white faced monkeys, several species of iguana and 2 toed sloth visit us on site. A great beach just outside the backyard gate with moderate waves for surfing, super warm water, great sand, and no signs of sea urchins or jelly fish.
A short walk down the beach to the town of Manual Antonio where you can find restaurants, shops and a grocery store. If you are booking this house, you will not be disappointed! We will definitely be back!

“Perfection in Manuel Antonio”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed here with my husband, two young children (2 and 4), and our nanny this summer. We couldn't have had a better experience. The house was fantastic -- the kids loved the treehouse room and the pool / jacuzzi. We loved being right on the beach. What more can you ask for when you throw in regular visits from monkeys, iguanas, and other wildlife?

The house is incredibly well maintained and secure (there was someone on the property 24/7), and includes daily maid service. What really sets the house apart though is Sabrina, the personal concierge. She made everything so easy for us -- from arranging tours (and last minute changes!), to finding a babysitter, arranging transportation and carseats, having groceries delivered, recommending restaurants and making reservations. We couldn't have asked for anything more and return in a heartbeat.
