We spent spring break with our two little ones (ages 5 1/2 and 3) at Casa Manana. The pool was one of the original features that drew us to the property, and it did not disappoint! The pool was by far the kid's favorite part of vacation. We swam every day, sometimes multiple times per day! It was fun to see the iguanas venture out on the rocks during the day, and by the end of the trip, our son had named the frequent iguana visitors - "Iggy", "Jake", "Max" and "Jack" :)
Dirk was so helpful and extremely responsive when booking our trip, talking on the phone and sending pictures and info. The house was perfect for our family. We've been home for almost 2 months now and the kids still keep asking when we're going to back to our "Costa Rica house".
The weather was absolutely perfect while we were in Costa Rica. Sunny every day, no rain, and nice and hot with a warm breeze. The pool was always the perfect temperature too!
We did lots of fun stuff while on vacation, including exploring the local beaches, a catamaran sunset and snorkeling cruise, river boat tour, and Miravailles volcano tour. All were well worth the time and money!
The kitchen at Casa Manana was well stocked and we ate all our breakfasts and most of our lunches at the house. I loved that there were even spices to cook with!
An extra perk of the house was having the free wi-fi and long distance phone. We had a little hiccup with our daughter getting sick, so we had to make a few phone calls to our doctor back home. It was a relief being able to call home so easily.
All in all, it was a great vacation, and it felt so comfortable staying in Casa Manana! Thank you, Dirk and Lisa!
