WONDERFUL HOUSE IN A BEAUTIFUL AREA

  • 5 of 5
All of the descriptions and positive reviews of this home and of Itza herself are absolutely true. There is not a better place to stay in Manuel Antonio. Everything you need is a short walk away and Itza is wonderful at arranging activities. The home is fantastic with a very refreshing swimming pool, and is setup to host multiple couples with lots of privacy. Enjoy your stay at Casa Itza!

FABULOUS HOME, WONDERFUL HOSTESS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Itza's place from 6/13/13-6/22/13. I looked at every house on VRBO in the Manuel Antonio area for several months and kept coming back to this one. I’m so glad we made the decision to stay here.

As we were carrying our bags into the house, Itza appeared on the front porch steps. She showed us a few things and left us to settle in after our long day of traveling. For the remainder of the trip, as she lives on the first floor of the home (with a separate entrance), she was available if we needed her, but we definitely had plenty of privacy.

I found all of the details of the home, in the description above, to be very accurate. The A/C in the bedrooms is more than adequate and the huge sliding glass doors on the main floor kept the house cool during the day.

We wanted to go fishing so Itza made a quick phone call and got us booked for a half day, in-shore. Marlin, our boat captain, picked us up and dropped us back off at the house afterwards, which was nice. She also booked us an afternoon tour on the Ocean King catamaran and saved us $10 per person, which I highly recommend. Her restaurant suggestions were ones that we probably wouldn’t have visited otherwise and they were delicious.

Gary cleaned the pool early every morning and Martha cleaned the house every other day. They are both very quiet and very good at their jobs.

We got massages from Itza and her daughter Abby and they were wonderful. Both of us walked out feeling like a million dollars! It’s definitely well worth the time and money.

As others have mentioned, the house is nestled in the back of a local neighborhood. We walked back and forth from the main road every day and felt right at home. When we didn’t feel like walking, we’d simply call a taxi and they all seem to know where Itza’s place is.

We saw white faced monkeys everyday, howler monkeys one day and a sloth two days. Various species of birds fly around the backyard all day so there's always outdoor entertainment.

As much as we loved relaxing on the patio or by the pool with a cup of coffee or a cocktail, I just as much enjoyed the time we spent talking to Itza. She’s such a gracious hostess. She works hard, she’s very honest and is proud of her home. I highly recommend this home as a getaway for a couple or family. It feels more like you’re visiting a relative than just another vacation rental.

I'd like to thank Itza and Abby for making our week in Costa Rica so spectacular!

LUXURY HOME IN REAL COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
As others have said, the pics are accurate. So are the animals, and so is the "setting." While each visitor deserves his/her own opinion, anyone who was not enchanted by this property or its setting really doesn't belong anywhere but in a resort or a hotel room.

Itza is everything you could expect in a hostess/concierge. She was at our disposal all day and all night, doing what we asked of her without being "underfoot." If you asked her to come an hang out with you for a few hours a day, she'd probably do that, too.

Considering the openness of the main floor, the proximity of sand and jungle, the home was clean and appropriate. It is beautifully-decorated and very comfortable. A home this large in a country like Costa Rica is a leap-of-faith in itself. The environment is hard on appliances and services, and in the few respects that we were affected, Itza (and the people who work with her) resolved our concerns immediately or made sure we were accomodated. All things considered, what more could you ask of a hostess/owner?

Itza did her very best for us regardless of our wishes, and made every effort to see that our needs were always met. Her recommendations (side trips, etc.) were fantastic (go sailing for a morning or a day--you'll love it). Her advice regarding "where" to buy grocies was great. She'd have done more for us if we'd have asked.

The home is a bit off the beaten path but, if you're going to the trouble of getting deep into Costa Rica, why not see some "reality" while you're there? It's no different than staying in a high-end home in the Colorado mountains, as long as you're outside a gated community or a resort; your going to get some "real" with you fairytale vacation. Getting used to the home's location is quite necessary; getting around is something you'll need to get the hang of if you're going to have any fun in this part of the country, and learning your way from the house down to Quepos or the Manuel Antonio beach from the house is a good start.

The home is well-protected and safe. The restaurants were, on the whole, fantastic. There are great souvenir shops in either of the towns below the home's location. The beaches were good, fun and interesting.

More important to us (a party of nine) than a "perfect" house is was the degree to which we were "accomodated," and Itza and her staff were truly perfect in this respect--the first reason I'd go back.

Thank you, Itza, for everything.

JUNGLE ATMOSPHERE, AMPLE ROOM, RESPONSIBLE OWNER..

  • 4 of 5
Although the owner Itza made an error regarding our arrival date (she had confirmed our change from Sunday to Saturday but forget to make the change on her calendar), she & her daughter Abby, with their local connections in being residents of the area, quickly found us very suitable accommodations for our late arrival on Saturday night. We then easily moved to this lovely & spacious home Sunday morning and Itza & Abby even offered us complimentary massages later in the week as an apology-they were great!
The house descriptions & pictures are very accurate, and there is very ample space for eight. We have rented in this El Lirio neighborhood previously, & find it very convenient and among friendly locals. However, once you enter the gated area of Itza’s house, you are convinced you are deep in the jungle, with lush foliage & animal sightings & sounds surrounding you (one exception being the barking dog next door). We had housekeeping services twice during our 6 night stay.
Access to the pool –down a picturous but unevenly paved rock stairway- could be a bit difficult for those not physically fit & not all the lights at the adjacent barbeque area were working. We noticed some other minor maintenance issues & a the kitchen supplies were a bit light on cooking utensils, but we overall had a very enjoyable stay in this well-designed & furnished home. We would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
I can’t say enough about the house, the wonderful hostess, and the country in general. The pictures are very accurate in depicting this most beautiful home. We had a wonderful time here. I can honestly say that I haven’t enjoyed a vacation this much in a long time! We were 7 adults with plenty of room and privacy for all for 6 nights.
The property is beautiful, the monkeys plentiful,( please don’t feed them though, it’s not good for them..and they don’t normally eat bananas) the neighbors were very friendly.
We were here in the busy Christmas season and were warned to be careful (as you would anywhere there are many tourists) We felt very safe at all times, although of course we watched our belongings on the buses and at the beach, just like home.
Itza arranged a park tour, snorkeling, canyoning and surf lessons (from her son David) for us. All were amazing. The only thing we didn’t fit in were the massages. We’ll have to come back for that!
Although the kitchen stove/oven was not working properly,Itza was aware and we were happy to grill on the outside deck.
When we went to the public beach, we walked and took the bus back. Itza can show you the short cut..not a bad walk at all..just hot. Transportation to and from Manuel Antonio and Quepos is very easy on the public buses, but they don’t run as often in the eveing, so you may need to take a cab after 8pm.There is a small grocery store just up the block, and a larger one on the main road a few minutes walk away.
I couldn’t imagine a nicer hostess than Itza and thank you also to Peter (Petes Place) who arranged a delicious New Years Eve dinner for us at Kapi Kapi. El Avion had great sunset views, and don’t miss the coffe and any meal at Cafe Milagro.

Again, Itza thank you for your hospitality. When (not if) we are in the area again, we will look to return here.
Pura Vida!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jeanne for your wonderful review.
It makes me so happy when my guests have a great vacation.
I apologise about the stove thingit is being taken care of, the tropics are hard on mechanical things, with the moisture and salt in the air, but I am glad the BBQ worked to save the day.
I'm sorry I could not fit in that other massages, in the busy season I need more than one days notice to arrange it as I have appointments I book before, I promise you one when you come back.
It makes me happy when people come to my house and love it, I work hard to make it and when the people are happy I am happy.
Have a great year and I hope to see you again soon Itza

GREAT HOUSE, VERY SPACIOUS, LOTS OF MONKEYS

  • 5 of 5
Our group stayed in Itza’s House for 4 nights and we had a great experience. We were three families with a total of 4 young kids but I feel the house will be a great fit for travelers of any age. The house is situated in a local neighborhood a few blocks from the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It is only a 10 min drive to Manual Antonio national park and the beaches. The architecture of the house is amazing – it backs into the rainforest and the entire back wall of the house is made of windows allowing for spectacular views from both the living room and the terrace. There are three levels – one is the main level which has the open plan living room and kitchen as well as one bedroom. The second level has the master bedroom and a nice terrace facing the rainforest and the third level has two bedrooms. Each bedroom comes with a bath and everything is very modern and clean and very airy. House is super spacious and allows for several families to share with no problems. Air conditioners in every bedroom as well as ceiling fans. Very large verandah off the living room with comfortable seating – we ate all of our breakfasts there and loved to have late night drinks and listen to the sounds of the rainforest. It is very easy to see monkeys especially if you leave a banana on the balcony – one morning we had 10+ monkeys right on the railings of the terrace to the delight of our kids. But you do need to wake up early to see them – they are usually there between 6 and 8 am though Itza says they also come in the afternoon. We also saw some birds in the trees behind the house. There are stairs from the terrace leading down to the pool and hot tub. Both are very nicely landscaped and there is a gazebo with a gas grill next to the pool. Our only disappointment was that the hot tub was freezing cold and we were told this cannot be fixed so it was unusable and so was the pool because of the very cold water. But the weather was pretty hot and the beaches were close so it was not a big issue. The house has parking and a locked gate so there is no issue for the safety of your cars. There is also a supermarket within walking distance that delivers though prices are quite expensive (as we found out is the case with many of the local grocery stores). Itza and her daughter Abby give great massages and we took advantage of their services one night – it was pure bliss to get a massage with the screen doors open listening to the sounds of the rainforest.

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for your wonderful review.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and that everything was as you expected it to be or nicer.
As to your only complaint, about the coolness of the water in the pool Jacuzzi and the pool itself.
Our green season extends from August to December, and during that time we experience many cloudy days and this year especially, quite cool nights.
As a result, the water is cooler than normal as it receives less sun to warm it up.
As well the Jacuzzi is just that, a jacuzzi, not a hot tub and that is the way the pool came, therefore it;s water will be no different than the pool ( unless of course it's summer and because it is shallower it's water is generally warmer than the pool).
We are sorry if you were under the impression it was a hot tub, but I am sure we never gave the impression it was heated.
We are in the process of thinning some of the trees that shadow the pool as to let more sun get to it.
Again, thanks for your wonderful review and we hope to see you again in the future.

Her prices vary depending on the location. Itza also provides maid service three days a week. Free High Speed Internet available. We are pleased to say we now work with Pete's Place (7 Persons) # 309203 Manuel Antonio, two blocks away but you have to pass Pete's to get to the main road from Itza's. Together we can handle up to 18 people.( Must confirm pricing) Pools are private to both houses unless both houses are rented in conjunction with each other!
