About Linda Silbert

I did an exchange program in Costa Rica in 1973 and fell in love with the country. I am still in touch with my host family and my wife and I have a special relationship with them. You will love the condo, it turned out really great!

Linda Silbert purchased this condo in 2006

Why Linda Silbert chose Manuel Antonio

Far enough away from the nightlife of Manuel Antonio to have privacy but close enough - 1 mile down the road - to enjoy it as well.

What makes this condo unique

Share the restaurant and pool with the Shana Hotel -

added benefits to our guests having access to the amenities of the hotel

Owner's Response: Hi Julia,
I am happy to respond to your review! The first review in 8 years that has been negative! I am very sorry you did not have a good experience in our condo or in Costa Rica for that matter. Our condo is walking distance to 3 different beautiful secluded cove beaches; 5, 10, and 15 minute walks - the main beach in Manuel Antonio is 1 1/2 miles away. I make this clear on the site. Our representative Alex maintains the condo looking clean and fresh for each guest. Maybe you arrived early before 3 pm and the condo was being prepared between guests.
And lastly, we are not connected in any way to the Shana Hotel so I cannot speak about their restaurant. We share the pool but management is completely separate.
And I know that Alex is dealing with the ant issue, some seasons are worse than others, but it will get resolved.
Our condo and the building is beautifully maintained and our guests have had amazing experiences in the condo and in this incredible country!

  • 5 of 5
Visited Costa Rica for the first time with my family. Wonderful place to stay in Manuel Antonio! Beautiful condo with amazing views of forest And ocean. Saw toucans and a sloth from our balcony! We loved the air conditioning and Alex, the concierge was great meeting us and setting up excursions for our stay. Our children loved staying here!

Better Than The Pictures!!!

  • 5 of 5
Just finished a glorious 11-day stay here with my wife and 2 teenage daughters. We had a fabulous time! The condo is gorgeous as everyone says - clean, huge, comfortable, safe, and the location is quiet with fabulous views, but no too far away from things. Like others, we saw monkeys, Toucans, and other wild life from the balcony, and the pool on several occasions, and heard the growler monkeys though we never actually saw one. Went to the beach down the hill and swam out to the rock where the snorkeling boats come a couple times, and once out there it was like swimming in an overstocked aquarium! We took full advantage of Alex and went all out on the adventures - surfing for a couple hours almost every day, as well as the 10-in-1 jungle adventure, scuba diving to Cano Island (well worth the drive to the boat), river running, Manuel Antonio Park, horseback riding on the beach, etc. It was all worth the extra $$, especially once you have shelled out the airfare to get there. We went to the local markets and cooked much of our own food (bring your own spices), but also ate at several hole in the wall places that Alex and the locals told us about. Pizza Patta was a favorite as well with good pizza at a very reasonable price. We found the Maxi Pali in Quepos worth the fifteen minute drive to stock up on our basic food supply, but got out meat and fish from the Central Market in Quepos. We had a fabulous time. Linda was very easy to work with, we would absolutely do this again!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! Your vacation sounds amazing!
We are thrilled that our condo exceeded your expectations! Many people ask me if the pictures on the site are really pictures of the condo....and I always answer the way you did - it is better in person!!
I am glad you had so much fun with your family and really experienced CR!
Come Back! Pura Vida!

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4nights at Linda's beautiful condo with our two teenagers daughters. The condo is huge, has lovely furniture, a well equipped kitchen, and thankfully amazing air conditioning in both bedrooms and the kitchen/living area, which was so needed because it was super HOT while we were there. The little cove beach is truly an easy walk from the condo, through a jungle pathway where we saw monkeys our first and second time down the path. The condo is located in a very nice hotel, where the pool was never crowded and the workers at the restaurant greatly helped us when our daughter suffered from heat exhaustion, making us the miracle cure called rice water. It is located on a very steep, barely two lane street, so other than the beach and the two hotels next door, you really cannot walk anywhere (at least in the heat or at night, too dangerous), so you need a car or to take 10$ each way cabs. The condo's concierge alex was friendly (American) and always available by cell if you need anything. for example, the electricity went out at sunset one night (apparently this happens sometimes, happened twice during our stay), I called alex to see if there were any candles in the unit in case it didn't come back on before it got dark. There weren't, but he sent someone over with some just in case. Plus, he was very accommodating on our last day letting us leave our luggage in the unit and come back and clean up before our trip to San Jose in the afternoon to leave early the next day, which meant we could really enjoy our last day. Thank you alex and Linda!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Alex, our representative in Manuel Antonio, is the best - he can arrange an entire week of tours and reservations or simply just meet you with the key! I am so sorry about the electricity - but I am glad it was handled so quickly!
The condo is in the same complex as the hotel but they are not connected - even though the buildings look alike - we do share the pool which is just lovely and really never crowded - I agree!
Come back again!
Pura Vida,

Wildlife, Oceanviews and more!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 3 nights and wish we never had to leave! You could not ask for more views from not 1 but 2 balconies! Jungle, Ocean and pool views! If you wake up early in the morning (5am) you have a special treat of hearing the Howler Monkeys roaring through the mountains..super cool experience!!! From our balcony we saw a sloth making his way climbing through the trees. We had capuchin monkeys each morning and also had one visit us on our patio. Toucans, hummingbirds and many more were constant throughout our stay! The decor of the condo is very modern and could not believe how much space the condo had to offer! Alex the concierge was there to help us check in, call taxis and book any activity you could want to do! Would highly recommend this as we wish we were still there!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for you wonderful review. We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your vacation and our condo helped make your stay that much nicer. There are 3 balconies in the condo but 2 have the best views for sure and the monkeys and sloth family are so amazing to watch from so close! So glad that Alex, who we love, was such a big help.
