“Beautiful views, good value”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family of four (kids 10&14) stayed here for one week. The views couldn't be better, and the outdoor areas are perfect for taking it all in. The walk to the beach was okay, about 10 minutes downhill on a rocky road. Walking up the hill to the main road was a good workout, a bit of whining from the kids, but all of Manuel Antonio is hilly so it goes with the territory. Bismarck the caretaker was so helpful and sweet and the dogs and kitten really made us feel at home. Yes, there are 100 steps up to the house but hey, we all came home in better shape than when we left for vacation, how often can you say that? The only thing that would make this place a bit better would be a window a/c for the master bedroom. Just to have a little break from the humidity/heat for sleeping. But overall, this was a great deal for the area if you are physically able to make the stairs work (you could always cab it for everything else).

“Million Dollar View”

The view from this house is stunning. Just like you see it on the website. The terraces and balconies are the perfect spots for enjoying that view even if it rains. During our stay we constantly saw tucanos on the tree right in front of us. I found the house very charming with lots of cute details. Bismarck the housekeeper has been very helpful with anything we needed. The only thing I found a bit strange was that the bedrooms oversee the living room lacking a bit of privacy but this wasn't an issue. It can perfectly fit two couples and a 5th person in the living room. The beach down the house is great, you just need to be in good shape or you will be exhausted on the way back, which is upwards (or you can go by car or taxi). I saw the comments about the 100 stairs but those are better than I thought as they are divided in multiple sections so even if you are not very sporty you can climb them and just take small breaks. The house even has a delivery menu from a nearby restaurant in case you don't want to go out. With those views you may certainly want to stay home!
Can't wait to have some time off to come back!!

“Same view as the 5 star hotels down the street”

Loved the location. It was a short walk to the beach and is a much better, less crowded beach than within Manuel Antonio National Park. M.A. Is close enough to walk to on the beach. Plenty of restaurants just up the street to eat at. Very quiet location with views of the ocean from every room in the house except the bathroom. Lots of balconies and decks to hang out on. There are enough windows to open so that the breeze moves asily through the house in lieu of air conditioning. The ceiling fans were a must as well as the two additional fans left in the bedrooms to insure a. Cool night's sleep. This house is not safe for children at all. The railings are low and the spindles are far apart. Each bed has is completely covered with new looking mosquito netting since all the windows are screenless. We had no issues drinking the house water and saw monkies in the trees on the walk to the beach. The steps are steep, but there is a lift that the caretaker uses to being your luggage up and down from the house. It took me a while to figure out that if I clicked on the little word "details" that I would not only get to view the contract, but pages of information from the owner - including directions and where to get the key. I don't ever want to forget the beautiful view from this house.

Great house with beautiful views. We saw hummingbirds from the porch every day. Very close to Manuel Antonio and two other beaches. Lots of restaurants nearby and plenty to do. The walk up to the house from the street is a bit strenuous, so I would not recommend it to anyone who would have a problem climbing lots of steps. Other than that, we had a wonderful time and hopefully we will return one day soon!

Cealan,
Glad you had a nice time. THanks for the review. I have tried to "warn" about the 100 steps but will re-read and make sure it is very clear that there is a climb. THanks. Cara
