We stayed in Casa Cascada for almost a week and absolutely loved it. It was a little big for our family of three, but it was really nice to have the extra space and the private pool. The house is really well appointed, with 2 master bedrooms with king beds (the mattresses are really firm, but not uncomfortable), an enormous living room, a great kitchen with pretty much everything you need (the knives are dull, but that's not a huge deal), and an enormous wrap around porch with MONKEYS! (See the pictures) The house is on a really steep hillside, and looks out into a jungle view and every evening monkeys would swing through the trees and occasionally visit us on the patio. The house is also totally and completely private and felt like a bit of an oasis. The only downside is that the pool is under the house at the end of the driveway, but that's easily overlooked. And, it actually made it a little safer for our 3-year-old, since it wasn't right outside the door. The house is a short, ten-minute drive to the GORGEOUS beaches at Manuel Antonio (get there early to catch free street parking) and a five-minute drive to restaurants and shops in Quepos. Dorit made the reservation process really easy and also arranged for a fabulous surfing lesson. The Manuel Antonio Estates staff were really wonderful and unobtrusive. We loved our stay at Manuel Antonio Estates and Casa Cascada and can't wait to come back. ¡Pura Vida Costa Rica!
