MORE SPECIFICS

Driving up our short bumpy road, you’re thinking “surely we took a wrong turn somewhere”. As you start to believe you’re at the Earth’s end, you arrive at Casa Tranquila’s gate, and you smile knowing that: without doubt, you have made the right choice for your home in Costa Rica. And, just maybe, you HAVE reached the End Of The Earth: where Sea, Sky and Rainforest magically merge as One on your Horizon.

Passing through her gates you realize that The Pacific will be your garden while you are here. Everyone quickly reaches for cameras to capture This Perfect View in the first moments. . . forgetting you will have many more days to enjoy it. After 10 minutes of photos and High-Five’s, you remember to look behind you actually to see Casa Tranquila herself.

And while no villa can compare with what Mother Nature has just showed you, Casa Tranquila is Her worthy competitor.

STYLE

Casa Tranquila’s 2013 modernization, conceived by famed Costa Rican architect, Jose Antonio Pinto, cleverly blends indoors with out-. Every window is a door. Every floor, a balcony. Sometimes even Casa Tranquila’s family of monkeys doesn't know the difference. With its three distinct (and distinctive) living sections, Guests have the relaxed sense of independence . . .while remaining together. She is like no other villa.

INTERIORS

Soft color; Gentle breeze; Open space; Cozy bedding; Vaulted ceiling; Chic floor; Bali imagery; Marble baths; Teakwood doors; Polished cabinetry; Distinctive art; Unique ornaments; Modern conveniences. Casa Tranquila is a World-Class design.

LOCATION

Manuel Antonio is NOT a beach town. It is a mountain town near the sea. Casa Tranquila (and other select villas) is located “above” the beach. (That’s why you will have those stellar views). Reasonably, too, your cool temperatures, disco-free nights, fine restaurants, and safe streets are all away from the beach area. Fortunately though, the seashore only a five-minute shuttle (taxi or car) ride from Casa Tranquila. You won’t even have time to open your sun-screen bottle before your feet are in the sand. And when you return home to Casa Tranquila’s pools, you may wonder why you ever left in the first place.

WILDLIFE

Monkeys on the balconies, toucans on the roof, iguanas having coffee by the pool, sloths playing bridge in the trees . . . our animals come to you at Casa Tranquila. Of course you will love the National Park Beaches, but you really won’t need any park to see Costa Rica's wildlife: just look out your door.

SWIM

A pool is just a pool; until you come to Casa Tranquila. Cresent-shaped, our large crystal-clear pool has a uniform four-foot depth throughout. And for the younger, shorter, or less buoyant swimmers, a second shallow lounging pool connects, complete with a convenient underwater bench and resting place for cocktails. Newsflash for your upcoming Tropical tan: remember that Manual Antonio is a forest with very tall trees. Ergo, most pools get little sun. Casa Tranquila’s pools and decks, however are sunny all day . . .unless you opt to raise the convenient umbrella. Cushioned lounge chairs, pool floats and air jets make you want to stay all day.

KITCHENS

An architect who’s also a master in culinary arts is handy when he creates his kitchens. Jose was insistent that Casa Tranquila’s kitchen was designed for simplicity and function. If you choose villas because you prepare (at least some of) your own meals, read no further . . . your search is over. Of course there’s all the anticipated, high-end, modern, stainless appliances, but it’s the “unexpected” particulars that would have even made Julia Childs proud. For the Chef: everything from a full block of (SHARP) carvers down to a simple garlic peeler. For the Hostess: everything from martini glasses to colorful linen cocktail napkins. Every drawer and cabinet is full of kitchen necessities. So even if you’re just a morning “egg-scrambler”, you won’t miss a beat in Casa Tranquila’s kitchen. The dining table is six steps away and the breakfast counter: right behind you

THE COTTAGE

If you don’t choose to add The Cottage option now, you’ll surely reconsider after you arrive at Casa Tranquila. A dining deck over the pool, a bath that’s practically in the jungle, and an open-air living area make The Cottage a “must-have” extra even if your group is small. For more than six Guests, The Cottage is required for its convertible sleeping space. The sofa transforms into a full bed (with feather top) for extra Guests. And after years of asserting that “folks don’t come to Costa Rica to watch TV”, Casa Tranquila finally yielded and added a large-screen HDTV . . . with Netflix, even. While every other suite has its smaller TV, we are certain you’ll appreciate our new “Giant on the wall”. The Cottage is totally separate from the rest of Casa Tranquila, so it’s the perfect retreat for special Family members who prefer more independence.

SERVICE

Vacation villas in Costa Rica are typically run by rental agencies. But at Casa Tranquila, the owner himself does everything for you: plans, manages, hosts and even welcomes you at her gate when you arrive. Donald is perhaps Casa Tranquila’s most valued distinction from all other villas. Prior to your arrival, through email and/or telephone, he tailors all your wishes: transportation, restaurant reservations, tour and excursion bookings. Once you are here, living only three minutes away, he is available 24 hours a day to implement your plan. And if your plan is “to have no plan”, he is happy simply to hang your hammock, deliver your sunscreen and towels, and let you relax. You’ll be confident to be cared for “By the Owner”, himself.

YOUR GIFT

Donald has created a presentation of “Insider Tips” about traveling to Costa Rica. It includes essential material about: exchanging currency, using your cell phone, drinking the water and paying the Costa Rican departure tax. These pieces of valuable information have been compiled after years assisting his Guests as they organize their vacations. With no obligation, this “peace of mind” is yours for the asking. Send your Inquiry now to receive it.

So, until we meet at Casa Tranquila, we wish you Pura Vida: The “Pure Life” of Costa Rica.

About Donald Corvette

I moved to Costa Rica and began Casa Tranquila in April 2006. After years as a National Executive with prestige fashion corporations (Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta), it was time to begin a new stage in my life, at 50, that did not include the challenges of corporate work. Yet I still wanted to integrate my 20 years' experience within the luxury industry into my new chapter.

Also, many real estate opportunities in Palm Beach, Florida provided my insight for remodeling normal houses into beautiful homes. I simply “translated” that awareness into Spanish, and transformed Casa Tranquila into a Tropical Villa that provides both comfort and luxury, simultaneously.

I found this combination of fashion and real estate created the ideal blend for designing Casa Tranquila.

My Border Collies, Chelsea & Sombra, and I prefer a sense of home life, which does not require an abundance of travel. So we decided to create our haven in this pristine tropical location to encourage 'The World' to travel to us. Thus . . . we invite you to come experience Casa Tranquila as our Guests . . . certain that you will leave as our Friend.

Donald Corvette purchased this villa in 2006

Why Donald Corvette chose Manuel Antonio

When you visit Costa Rica, you will find that it is the magic of the people here that will make you want to stay. Costa Ricans have a love for life that I have never seen in my travels . . . and they have a lovely way of sharing that feeling with their guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We took our 3 adult kids and significant others to Manuel antonio for a wonderful family vacation for a week at the end of January. The weather was beautiful, the area was lush with lots of wildlife to enjoy. We all agreed that our favorite activity was the zip lining (and some of us were afraid of heights) that Donald and Nathan arranged for us. It was amazing! The guys who ran the place were friendly and extremely safety conscious, and the views from run to run were amazing! Don't miss that! We also enjoyed the sunset cruise and 4 wheeler ride, but be prepared to get very dirty from the dust on the roads. Each night we had cocktails somewhere, by the pool, on the beach, or at one of the many restaurants or bars with an amazing view. Our favorite for that was El avion (the airplane restaurant). The food there was good but our 2 favorite dinner spots were the small Italian restaurant on the main road (Nathan and Donald will know the name) and the small restaurant on Three Left Turns road going to the beach (and again I'm blank on the name but Nathan and Donald can help where I am blank). Amazing food especially at the last two! The staff at the Casa were very helpful and friendly and eager to please. Our kids all agreed that it was an amazing vacation!

AMAZING!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

In one word, Casa Tranquila is AMAZING! From the moment we arrived at the Casa's doorstep, it felt like home. Donald and Nathan greeted us with a fresh fruit beverage and gave us a royal tour of our home in paradise. They were always a call away and orchestrated many of our spur of the moment excursions. There was not a request they could not bring to fruition. Paulett brightened our morning each day with her infectious smile and bubbly personality and ensured that our new home was spotless. The love that has gone into Casa Tranquila is apparent and the love for each new visitor cannot be surpassed. Thank you for sharing your home with us - we cannot wait to come back! ~ Cheyanne and Matt.

Owner's Response: Cheyanne, You and Matt were such a pleasure. With your "Family", Nathan & I felt comfortable from the first moment. You all really know how to relax and settle into "Pura Vida". Thanks for making our week such a perfect one! Donald & Nathan, Paulet and Juan.

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

From the several months in the planning stages of the trip to the last good bye, we could not have asked for better service. But, it was more than service. It was like meeting new,"old friends". Donald and Nathan were great from start to finish. The house was beautiful and very comfortable, but I would guess that there are other fine homes near Manual Antonio. The difference is the people and the experience that they create.

It began with Carlos picking us up in San Jose to drive us to Casa Tranquila. He treated us like family. ....took us to a huge, wonderful fruit market, to lunch and then to the grocery before arriving at the house where we were welcomed by Donald and Nathan. From then on, our new best friends "showed us the ropes" and helped/advised us whenever we asked. And, as a group of seven women with a variety of interests and abilities, we had plenty of questions.

Our favorite activities were the sunset sail and the zip line. Thank you Nathan. Of course it was also great planning the have Sombra and her 6 puppies to visit with us. What a special treat!

Paulette, who comes in every day to tidy up had us feeling very spoiled. She was delightful and as Donald had said, she goes about her work and you hardly know she's there. We wanted to bring her back with us.

In all, we had a great time and as I've told people since I've been home, Costa Rica is wonderful, but the best thing is the people. Everyone we encountered was kind, caring and happy.

Thank you all.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The property was every bit as perfect as the photos on the website depicted. Donald was warm and inviting in our very first exchange and continued through to the end of the vacation. The concierge service was top notch and the house staff made everything very comfortable for my group of girlfriends and me. It was the most wonderful customized experience and I found the people we met to be so easy going and living truly the motto, PURA VIDA. I felt as if we had made the best of friends in Costa Rica. It was the most memorable birthday celebration for all of us turning (gulp) 40!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for those warm comments. Nathan & I are very proud of the vacation-planning service we have sharpened in Casa Tranquila's nine years of assisting our guests. We're happy you noticed and that it gave you such an incredible vacation. You and "The Girls" are always welcome! Donald

Incredible 50th birthday vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT TIME at Casa Tranquila! The house is beautiful and as advertised. We loved the layout of the house and especially enjoyed the beautiful outdoor spaces! We felt so taken care of by Donald, Nathan, x, x and Sombra! The group I was with stayed very busy with many excursions all taken care of and agreed to well before our arrival. All we needed to do was be ready for the designated pick-up time which was right from our front door!! I can’t stress enough how friendly, warm and accommodating everyone was. We made a few last minute changes to our itinerary and all was taken care of promptly and with a smile! We do recommend taking advantage of on-site massage that can be set up (we ended up booking Massage Todd twice because he was so good) and taking advantage of an in-villa prepared meal. While there are many good restaurants in Manual Antonio with excellent views, you will be hard pressed to get a better meal or view from anywhere other than Casa Tranquila! We are already talking about a return visit!! GREAT HOUSE, GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL, GREAT HOST, GREAT CONCIERGE SERVICE, GREAT ADVENTURE, CLOSE TO BEAUTIFUL BEACHES, GREAT LOCAL PEOPLE, GREAT WAY TO CELEBRATE MY 50TH BIRTHDAY WITH GREAT FRIENDS AND NEW FRIENDS!!

We are particularly grateful for your acknowledgement of the PRELIMINARY work Nathan does to guarantee you have an ideal week. Thanks for make our jobs such a pleasure.

Perfect Home/Location and Customized Activities in Manuel Antonio!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as guests and departed as part of the extended Casa Tranquila Family! Three generations of our family stayed at Casa Tranquila, ranging from age 2 to 61. Donald, Nathan, Paulett, Juan and Florence combined to make our stay simultaneously exciting, relaxing and most memorable.

Donald and Nathan were thoughtful in making suggestions for the best activities, considering our varied interests. Florence prepared an amazing customized dinner for our family one evening. Although there are plenty of good restaurants in the area, I would recommend having Florence prepare at least two evening meals during your stay. She is an experienced French chef, who is generous with sharing her cooking tips, if you are interested.

Casa Tranquila was in the perfect location for our family’s activities. It allowed for a glorious view of the ocean, with the benefit of our own swimming pool. A multitude of restaurants were within a comfortable walking distance and the local bus was convenient for getting to the beach. For the 25 year olds, the ATVs were the highlight, with the ziplining coming in next. Be sure to use the companies recommended by Nathan for at least these two experiences. Aquas Azules, the parasailing company recommended by Nathan is also excellent.

It is important to pay attention when signing up for some of the adrenaline type activities, as not everyone is competent and ethical. Donald and Nathan have researched the local companies and will connect you with some good folks.

Great Home and Views!

  • 5 of 5

Well... what can I say? It was just as advertised as far as the property. What could not be advertised is the level of personal service and attention to detail that was delivered by Donald, Nathan, Paulet and the rest of the team at Casa Tranquila including Sombra. They made us feel more like old friends than first time guests. Nathan set up all of our desired excursions and all we had to do was make sure we were out of bed in time to meet the transportation that was always on time and waiting in the driveway.

Location was good for us-close to restaurants and the beach. You will need a car or taxi to take you to most places but there are markets and restaurants in walking distance as well. The bus is safe and not difficult to utilize. The pool was our normal afternoon spot for cool drinks and outstanding views.

This was our first time in CR so I do not have a reference as far as properties, but this place was just what we were looking for. Modern kitchen and comfortable furnishings. This will be our destination again next year. I think you will feel the same once you have stayed at Casa Tranquila.

Map

Car: not necessary

Manuel Antonio’s five-mile long main road divides the town into East and West. Casa Tranquila is on the West – or “ocean” -- side of this road. Many homes on the other side have Pacific views, but, because they are far away from the ocean, locals call them “distant blue' vistas. Being on the West, Casa Tranquila offers one of the closest views of the Pacific Ocean anywhere in the area.

Being 150 meters below this main road, Casa Tranquila is, indeed, tranquil.

Yet, the proximity to the road allows you to walk to the beach, excellent restaurants and adventure locations.

*Manuel Antonio National Park (5 minutes)

*SJO International Airport (2.5 hours)

*Beaches (5 minutes)

*Quepos (8 minutes)

*Quepos Airport (15 minutes)

No need for rental car (buses and taxis are abundant and close)

*Main Road (3 minute walk)

* Bus stop (5 minute walk)

*Eight Restaurants within 10 minute walk

Other Activities: Monkeys, ATV's, Jungle tours, Birding, Butterflies, Zip Line Tours, Deep Sea Fishing, Sunset Sails
