Having never been to Costa Rica, I wasn't sure what to expect. Trying to find the perfect house for us and our 3 sons (14,16,20) was daunting! This house turned out to be perfect! The location is right between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It's on the hill so you get spectacular views, and nice ocean breezes. You are minutes from...

Thanks so much for the excellent feedback, Heather! You and your family were a great pleasure for us to have at Casa Tranquila. We really appreciate your noticing all the "little things" we try to do for our guests. Our little street can be active, but we find our thousands of past-guests take comfort in the security of knowing there...

The description of Casa Tranquila was spot on. If you are looking for a truly once in a lifetime stay in your very own house in the jungle, this is your spot. At Casa Tranquila your vacation begins once contacting Donald about your booking. Once booked, he and Nathan, your private concierge take over all your vacation planning and these...

Spent last week at Casa Tranquila and could not have had a better vacation thanks to hosts than Donald Nathan and their hardworking staff. Even before meeting them upon our arrival, we were in contact by telephone and email going over details for our upcoming trip and planning all our tours. Having never visited Costa Rica, I wasn't sure which...

Thanks for noticing "the little things" we love to do at Casa Tranquila, Preston. You and yours were a delight, and we appreciate your being so gracious to Nathan and me.

About the neighbourhood
Casa Tranquila is a part of the Pacific Canyon Neighborhood Association. Donald, her owner, is even the president of the organization. Our street is gated and guarded, so your confidence is assured.
Casa Tranquila (indicated above by the star) is perfectly located halfway between the sleepy Costa Rica village of Quepos and the Manuel Antonio National Park. This seven mile drive locates our villa at the peak of the mountain . . . providing the most stellar of views in all of Costa Rica. Most important, Casa Tranquila is on the 'Ocean Side' of the main road . . . so you will feel like you can touch the sea from our balcony.
