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

Great experience for families

  • 5 of 5
It's actually been two years since I stayed at this condo with my wife and three kids (I was there in August 2012). But it looks like nothing has changed - still a fabulous condo in a great location, with so many things to do. My kids were 7, 7 and 8 at the time and we used this as a mid-way luxury relaxation stop on a three week trip around Costa Rica. When our 4 days were up, we did NOT want to leave. Everything was great with the apartment - clean, well equipped, and booking and arrival processes were totally smooth. We had a car, so it was great to have a spot to park and come and go as we pleased. Very close to lots of restaurants and bars, but we usually opted to hang out on the balcony of our unit and watch the monkeys. The kids swam in the pool every day, and we loved having coffee on the balcony in the morning, while watching the howlers or the spider monkeys. We often walked the short distance to the small beach (5 minutes walk), but also went right into Manuel Antonio. What a beautiful beach!!

When our friends told us they were going to Manuel Antonio in 2015, we told them they should stay here!! And so I finally got around to writing the review that I SHOULD have written two years ago!! Can't wait to make a return visit.

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!

Great stay in paradise

  • 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,
Linda and Michael Silbert
