About Sari Henley

We are local Manuel Antonio business owners who split our time living in Austin, Texas and Manuel Antonio Costa Rica. We are empty nesters who enjoy travel and working at our hotel in Manuel Antonio. We are grandparents and dog owners which is why we travel back and forth between the U.S. and Costa Rica.

Sari Henley purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sari Henley chose Manuel Antonio

We bought Casa Sarita to live in while conducting business at Hotel Byblos Resort and Casino which we also are part owners in. The house is a five minute walk from the hotel, so it seemed the perfect place to buy and Sari fell in love with it the first time she saw it. The beach is so close we can hear the waves from our upstairs bedroom, and we have lots of monkeys visiting us almost every day. As animal lovers who leave dogs behind in the U.S., the wildlife at our home fills that void.

What makes this villa unique

Full use of Byblos Hotel is included in all Casa Sarita Rentals. Our hotel has a full Reception Staff to help with all tour bookings and ground transportation arrangements. Chef services can also be booked thru our Reception Staff for a special night at Casa Sarita.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second trip to Quepos/Manuel Antonio and stayed at Hotel Byblos and Casa Sarita. Both accommodations were just amazing!! The bungalows are beautifully done and gives the feeling of your own little getaway. Casa Sarita is a gorgeous five bedroom three bath house that is spacious and comfortable. Loved sitting on the third floor balcony watching the monkeys spring from tree to tree to waking up to the howler monkeys. Sari and Davis, the owners of Casa Sarita and the hotel are so welcoming and so personable. We loved sitting down at the restaurant by the pool and enjoying their company at our table. Anything we wanted to do or had questions they were just a wealth of information as was their staff to setting up our tours to making sure our stay at their beautiful Casa Sarita home had everything we needed for our comfort. The staff at the hotel are so friendly and accommodating. The area is gorgeous and loved the visiting monkeys and all the wildlife this beautiful and magical piece of heaven on earth has to offer. I would recommend the hotel and Casa Sarita without hesitation to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing getaway to anyone that wants an adventure of a lifetime. Go and enjoy all this beautiful place has to offer. I promise you will not be disappointed. You will return again and again. Thanks again Sari and Davis... Pura Vida!!!!

The most amazing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 14 just got back from a one week stay at Casa Sarita in Manuel Antonio. The house was immaculate and the maid service wonderful. Really neat stone showers.The location was perfect. We walked everywhere and had delicious food. Many good restaurants to pick from. Everyone was super friendly. We had five days of activities which the Byblos hotel organized for us
which included horseback riding, jet skiing, snorkeling,
sailing, rainforest, National Park tour, surfing, wood
factory, and everyone's favorite the Titi Canopy zip line.
We saw lots of monkeys from the balcony while reading
in the hammock and it felt like we were living in a
National Geographic movie. The tour guides were so
knowledgeable and we learned so much about the
area. The breakfasts at the Byblos were great every
morning and the coffee outstanding ~ just like the
staff!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased when we hear our guests enjoyed themselves. One of the great perks of renting Casa Sarita is the staff of Byblos Resort is included for free! With Hotel Byblos being a short walk from the house, a great breakfast and a helpful reception staff are right there. As owners of the hotel, our guests enjoy this added feature with the rental of Casa Sarita.

Great place for a reunion

  • 5 of 5
I can't believe none of our group posted a review yet!! We were a group of 5 college friends meeting here to celebrate our "50". The house us awsome! We enjoyed the small pool at the house. The hotel Byblos was nice- we had breakfast there every am and the staff steered us just right in excursions. I agree with the other reviews- the walk to the hotel and the road is very steep- not for anyone with mobility issues. But it was a wonderful active vacation spot. We saw all kinds of monkeys sloths and frogs right at the house! Manuel Antonio park was beautiful, and the best beach is there inside the park. Highly recommend Casa sarita and this area!

Excellent value with a beautiful view & location

Excellent value with a beautiful view & location
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Sarita for almost 3 weeks. My 6 year old daughter and I arrived 10 days ahead of my husband, 17 year old son & 16 year old friend. We arrived by communter plane from San Jose which was a shaky ride coming in (in a driving thunderstorm) but easy on the way back. It was far better than taking a bus or getting a cab at the airport in San Jose.

The staff at Hotel Byblos were kind & helpful, setting us up with zip lining, offshore/inshore fishing, spa treatments at the casa, a catamaran cruise, and gave us directions and advice that was all very good. We also enjoyed using the hotel pool, pool tables in the bar, and we ordered pizza at least 4-5 times (that they will deliver to the house).

The house is exactly like the pictures portray - roomy & very pretty. It's rustic and very comfortable at the same time. You feel like you're in Costa Rica - artisan-made details/windows/doors/furniture are simple and authentic. It's kitchen is just so-so if you plan to do real cooking, but it sufficient if you plan to eat out most of the time. The one thing I missed the most from home was having a bath tub. The showers are attractive, but not that functional - no shower curtain, not all the knobs turn the correct way for hot/cold or are on a consistent side throughout the house. Only one person can shower at a time and have hot water for his or her shower. Jeanette is the housekeeper who comes everyday, and she is lovely - an asset to the property

Breakfast at the hotel every morning is a big plus. We didn't use it everyday, but almost. It's a good way to start off a day on vacation in Costa Rica, because you will probably be doing some serious walking, if not hiking.

Speaking of walking...the walk from the casa to the main road (where Hotel Byblos is located) is very steep. If you have issues with mobility, this is not the house for you. I didn't mind the walk after I got used to it (thought of it as my exercise), but my kids complained. For that reason we called a lot of taxis (ended up with a regular taxi driver (Edwin), a must).

Enjoyed the porch for watching monkeys and beach/rainforest gazing. Kids loved the pool.

We ate all over Manuel Antonio, but our favorite was Kapi Kapi for nice dining and Cafe Agua Azul (at the top of the hill from the casa) for casual dining. The boys enjoyed the fishing, and my daughter enjoyed the zip lining the most. I enjoyed the beach/park, even though it sometimes felt like a trek.

Casa Sarita

  • 5 of 5
Casa Sarita was an awesome vacation retreat. The hotel staff were very accomodating. All requests or needs were met with a positive attitude. Casa Sarita has enough bedrooms to sleep at least 10 people. The view is spectacular seeing the ocean, monkeys, sloth, flowers and birds. The buffet breakfast each morning was delicious. The fresh fruit was amazing. I loved my trip and hope to go back in the near future.

Byblos Hotel-Casa Sarita

  • 4 of 5
Casa Sarita is a lovely residence, located on the hillside with an ocean view and monkeys all around. We even had our own sloth in a nearby tree. The home can accommodate many guests with several bedrooms and three bath rooms. It is very well-maintained and the daily maid (Jeanette) was great at what she did. We enjoyed our own private pool daily. There is a hike up the hill to the main hotel and restaurant so you need to be able to do that. We looked at it as our daily exercise. Breakfast was always delicious with good service. Best part: the howling monkeys in stereo waking us up in the morning.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5
Great house! Good location. We couldn't ask for a better place for our Costa Rican vacation. The monkeys are right outside of your house, as well as sloth and frogs.
Be aware of the howler monkeys at night, they are true alarm clocks!
We got to use the amenities of the Byblos Hotel, which was a huge bonus! There is a little beach 5 min by car that we went to quite often. The beach at manuel antonio park is the best though. Hire a cook, as its a lot of fun to watch the locals prepare something traditional and yummy right in your house. We didn't think any of the restaurants were that good, so the cook option was the best. We'll be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Monkeys, Monkeys, and more monkeys... We love our little visitors, and our big ones too. Those howler monkeys are a real treat to see, even if it is at 5 am. Luckily they only stick around about 15 minutes after they wake up.

We hope to see you again, and maybe you will be lucky enough to see the howlers again!
