We are a retired couple from Canada that purchased our ocean view villa so that we could escape our winters. The climate, natural beaches and lush tropical setting in Manuel Antonio was just what we wanted.

Steven Takach purchased this villa in 2005

We purchased our home within 24 hours of arriving in Manuel Antonio after 4 trips to Costa Rica. Once we arrived here we know that it was the perfect place for us! We tried to create a very romantic vacation home that we would be thrilled to rent ourselves. It seems to be exactly what other romantic couples are searching for when they want to celebrate their honeymoon or anniversaries. Come see for yourself why The Villa was Voted 'Most Romantic' out of 325,000 vacation rentals around the world!

Privacy is a luxury and we have designed our 3/4 acre property so that you can be totally private and enjoy total freedom. It's so private that clothing is optional from the minute you walk out onto the terrace and while enjoying your own infinity edged pool! We are also just 4 minutes away from the famous beaches and amenities that Manuel Antonio offers for your Costa Rican vacation! Please read our reviews to see what past guests say about their wonderful vacations at The Villa.

Costa Rica on your bucket list...

  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
We stayed at the "villa" a couple of weeks ago, and all I can say is that it was nothing less then spectacular... we are already thinking about another stay.

The privacy and beauty was spectacular... we loved the feel of the villa.. the pool, and the opportunity for intimacy was a pure release. There are so many things to do in Quepos and the Manuel antonio area, that you will run out of days... way before you run out of things to do.

We enjoyed great activities by day... found great places for a glass of wine for the sunsets, then it was off to the fun cuisine for dinner. We did cook in for some breakfasts, and even one dinner... but we found we really soaked in the local color.

As for the villa... the pool, atmosphere and beautiful and private accommodations were outstanding. And what an exhilarating location overlooking the bay. And every night, enjoying the pool was a perfect way to wind down...

And if you want to be able to take advantage of the local culture and activities, yet have a local contact... Thomas was awesome. We didn't need to call on him a lot, cause we did our homework... but knowing he was there was a comfort... and when we did call, he took great care... that was great.

One suggestion... Rent a small SUV. It was great to have the freedom to come and go... there is so much to see, and so many venues to take in the sights. But... rent a small one.

All in all... if you want romance, beauty, local Central american culture, intimacy... and did I mention romance... you can't go wrong.

Week of relaxation in Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 23, 2008
  • Stayed: Oct 2008
Words will not be adequate to describe the really relaxing time that we just recently experienced when staying for one week in the Villa in Manuel Antonio. This house is absolutely the most perfect setting to enjoy Costa Rica. We would spend a portion of every day enjoying kayaking, whitewater rafting, hiking thru rain forests, spending time at the National Park and taking in the butterfly gardens and then we would come home to watch the rains move thru the area, swim in the beautiful pool, sit on the porch and just gaze at the Pacific Ocean and Quepos, watch for rainbows, watch the birds, and just drink in the beautiful landscaping.

Hats off to the Staff for the management of this property. They take care of every detail for you, from the maid service, to the pool cleaner, and the property manager taking care of us by arranging all of our tours. They were great!

If you are looking for a perfect place to stay while you enjoy the nature of Costa Rica, this is it!

This was the best vacation of our lives.

This was the best vacation of our lives. The villa was fantastic and it truly the most romantic place I have ever stayed. In all the places we visited in Costa Rica, our little villa had the best view of the sunset. We will be writing a longer review later, but I cannot recommend this place more highly.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We love to hear that our guests enjoyed the most romantic vacation of their lives together at The Villa. We also would like to extend our 10% discounted rate to all our returning guests. We look forward to your return.
Best Wishes, Susan & Steven

Amazing Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
For a romantic getaway you can't beat this villa! The pool is the best one we have ever been in! You will spend hours staring at the Pacific Ocean and the sunsets are exactly as you have seen in the pictures. The Villa itself is well stocked and very comfortable. The A/C works great and the time you will spend inside versus outside is 80/20% outside. We swam, ate and just stared off at poolside. Breakfast with the parrots and beautiful harbor below and humming birds all around is awesome! As stated in other reviews the drive up to the villa is steep and with hairpin turns, I loved it! It was a challenge but so awesome. Rent a SUV and you will have no problems. Great restaurants and beaches nearby, just about anything you would want to do you can! But this is about the villa! It is worth the price and is awesome, you are alone in your own world!!!
Owner's Response: We are always thrilled to hear that our guests at The Villa had a wonderful time! The pool is often the most popular place to hang out and watch the gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean & the incredible sunsets, as seen in our website photos. It's hard to capture the entire 270 degree ocean view on camera, so you will just have to see it for yourselves. Our staff has been with for many years and they work very hard to ensure that you will have a really relaxing and enjoyable stay.
Many of our honeymoon couples are now coming back to celebrate their anniversaries.
Thank very much for your wonderful review Bill and we look forward to sharing The Villa with you again. Best Wishes, Susan & Steven

Beautiful house, amazing service.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 23, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
The villa is stunning and very well cared for. It was set-up beautifully for our arrival, and we felt very welcome.
The best bit is the private infinity pool outside which is perfect for cooling off, with an incredible view over the harbor and ocean. It looks amazing both during the day, and also at night when it can be illuminated by underwater lighting.
We spent a large amount of our time lounging around in the deck chairs and in the pool.
Located just past Quepos, it is very easy to get to Manuel Antonio as well as the numerous bars and restaurants along the cliff-top, either by car or bus.
The attention to detail in the service provided by Thomas and Hazel is outstanding. Thomas met us when we first arrived and showed us the way to the villa and gave us a tour of the house and facilities. Arranging additional activities through Hazel couldn’t have been simpler, and without a doubt saved us a lot of time which we were able to spend relaxing and enjoying ourselves.
One thing to note is that the villa is located at the end of a steep driveway…we had a rental car which made it pretty easy to come and go, but one afternoon we walked up from the road which was quite tiring, particularly given the heat.
However we were also often able to convince friendly taxi drivers to take us nearly all the way to the top.

Overall we highly recommend staying here. It is one of the most beautiful houses we have ever stayed in, with probably the best view in the area, and complemented with outstanding service and facilities.
