Holiday Rental House
Choose from two options when renting The Villa Mariana for your vacation: either the 4-bedroom main house for groups of 10 or less; or both the main house and the additional guest house with a total of 6 bedrooms if you have a group of 11-18 guests (rates shown are for both houses up to 12 guests). Each house includes it's own private infinity pool. The main house, featured on HOUSE HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL, was designed by an award winning architect in beautiful Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Located in an extremely private area, yet close to the beach and all amenities, and with approximately 6800 sq. ft. of overall living space between the two homes, this sophisticated and spacious retreat is definitely “one of a kind”. The full-time staff allows you to have a completely turnkey vacation. ...Choose from two options when renting The Villa Mariana for your vacation: either the 4-bedroom main house for groups of 10 or less; or both the main house and the additional guest house with a total of 6 bedrooms if you have a group of 11-18 guests (rates shown are for both houses up to 12 guests).

The full-time staff allows you to have a completely turnkey vacation. The sloths, monkeys and toucans are typical guests on the pool patio on a daily basis. Don't lift a finger on your vacation! With daily housekeeping services and a concierge at your service, you'll be so pampered that you won't want to leave. Want to throw in our amazing chef? Need a bartender as well? For additional fees (lower rates than anywhere else in Manuel Antonio), you can have those as well! Our reviews say it all...check our references by reading them on our website at TheVillaMariana. Your glass house in a jungle setting awaits you! Note: Rates shown are for BOTH houses for up to 12 guests. If renting ONLY the main house (4 bedrooms) for groups of 10 people or less, deduct $300 per night from the rate for your requested dates. For each additional guest up to a maximum of 18 total guests on the entire property, there will be an $85 per night per guest charge. Costa Rica sales tax of 13% will be added to all totals. If paying by credit card, an additional 3% of the final total will be added. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 46-3839393More

About the neighbourhood
The Villa Mariana and Casita Romantica (guest house) are situated on two acres of lush, tropical jungle. Monkeys are daily visitors around the pool. Just outside of the electric gate, you can walk to the left for a 25-minute hike to the private beach (Playa La Macha), a 10-minute walk to visit the town of Quepos or the popular Marina Pez Vela. Walk to the right and you'll find a restaurant within 30 yards from the front gate, or walk a few minutes further to arrive at the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Both towns are within a 2-5 minute drive if you choose to go by car. When sitting in the back yard around the pool enjoying the beauty and nature, it's hard to believe that these towns are so close by.
Getting around
Our concierge can book your shuttle from the SJO airport to the house. Once you get to the house, she can also book rental cars to be delivered to the house if you would like. There are plenty of taxi's in the area as well, and we post a few of the taxi phone numbers on the wall in the kitchen. Many groups walk into the town of Quepos and take taxi's or drive cars in to Manuel Antonio (3 minute drive). Most excursions include transportation to and from the house, so cars and taxi's are not necessary on excursion days.
