About Steven Takach

We are a retired couple from Canada that manage this ocean view villa. It's the perfect place for romantic getaways! The fabulous climate, natural beaches and lush tropical setting of Manuel Antonio was just what we wanted.

Steven Takach purchased this villa in 1234

Why Steven Takach chose Manuel Antonio

We discovered paradise 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 925,000 vacation rentals around the world!

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you Steven and Susie. Roger and I had an absolute blissful honeymoon! We saw

"Larry the Iguana" and got some nice pics. We did a tour everyday and ended our stay with a wonderful massage by Itza. It was so nice to come back to the villa after a wonderful day exploring. We both talked about returning.

Thank you again, K & R

Paradise found in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
The Villa was everything that was promised and more. Overall, our stay was amazing and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property. We are 47 and 50 and have done a decent amount of travelling and this was the best vacation of our lives. The property is exactly as pictured and the views of the Pacific Ocean and the sunsets every evening are beyond spectacular. The Infinty pool is what sets this property apart from the others. You have complete privacy and we spent 2-3 hours a day at or in the pool. We had coffee outside every morning on the covered veranda and enjoyed the view and wildlife, including birds, butterflies and a friendly monkey who visited a nearby tree. It is so nice outside that we even chose to stay home and enjoyed dinners we prepared 4 of the 8 evenings we were there. The kitchen is fully appointed and being health conscious types we went to the local farmers markets to get FRESH fruit, vegetables and seafood when we cooked. The bed is absolutely amazing. I have some back issues and was concerned but I slept like a baby the entire stay. The beaches nearby in Manuel Antonio are as good as advertised too. Soft sand, great surf for swimming and all kinds of water activities available for a fee (para-sailing, sea kayaking, surfing, etc.). There is even a beach you can drive onto and park which is more private. Brenda and I enjoyed a day hiking and enjoying Manuel Antonio National Park on our own and saw 15-20 monkeys in their natural habitat, sloths, numerous birds, raccoons, etc., etc. We want to thank Hazel (the Villa's concierge) for recommending some other great activities. We went zip lining at Mid World and did both the normal lines and Superman (worth the extra $40). On another day we went waterfall rappelling with Xtreme Tours. The waterfalls and pools to swim in were great and the drive up into the mountains and scenery at the park where you rappel is beautiful. Both were thrills that we will cherish for a lifetime. Both staff allow you to do whatever you want based upon your ability. I've gone many other places and it’s not even enjoyable because of all the ridiculous rules. Both of these are a must for any adrenaline junkies or couples looking for some fun. Finally, if you rent a car get a 4WD. It helps with driving up the steep driveway to the Villa and allows you to go explore. We drove down the coast to the smaller and more humble towns of Dominical and Uvita and had a great day. Restaurants were fantastic. Can't wait to go back. Thanks!!!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house for a week in January. It is an amazing property. The view is beyond beautiful. The house is lovely, clean and well cared for! The kitchen is beautifully clean and had everything that we needed! Thomas - the house manager was excellent - we only had to ask and he did his best to help. The blender wasn't working when we came and about an hour later - we had a new one! There were only a couple of suggestions for improvement - one was that the pool was pretty much not usable for the first few days of our stay because it was so dirty and full of leaves. I realize that it is the season but perhaps during this time of year, you could have the pool maintenance done more often. We arrived on a Sunday and did not feel comfortable using the pool until late in the day Tuesday when the pool man came. If we could have found a broom we could have done some of our own cleaning around the pool area at least but... And the only other suggestion would be the shower in the house... It is kind of a strange set-up and I had trouble using it - I am not tall enough (and I'm 5'5") to reach the shower head to take it off to rinse the tub once you are finished showering and it was very difficult to set so it wouldn't spray all over and get everything wet... Also, there were no lights working on the driveway up to the house so it was very dark. I did tell Thomas about it later in our stay but perhaps he didn't have time to attend to it... Other than these few minor things - our stay was perfect. We enjoyed just hanging out on the beautiful deck enjoying nature - the toucan that flew by, the hummingbirds, many butterflies, and the monkeys who visited! The view of the harbour and the sunset were so gorgeous! The bed was beautiful and comfortable. It was very nice to have the maid visit mid stay and she did a great job! I wish you had a washer and dryer that was usable for guests but I understand why you may not want to do that... It was nice to have a barbeque to use as well, as we like to grill our meat... We rented a car - the steep driveway is an adventure - my husband would recommend an automatic just for easier driving. We rented a manual just because of cost but an automatic would have been worth the little extra cost. We never had to use 4 wheel... What else? I could go on and on about how wonderful but probably everyone else has said it before me! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Amazing anniversary stay

  • 4 of 5
The villa is very nice, as pictured. My husband and I loved the privacy it offered and we especially enjoyed the pool, the outdoor shower and the comfortable bed. We did, however, find the walk up and down the steep hill to be quite grueling as we opted not to rent an SUV. Many of the taxis did not want to come all the way up the hill for pick up or drop off, and we were not expecting that. The trek was made even more difficult by the fact that it was so dark; many of the lights surrounding the villa were out. We also noticed limited lighting around the pool and shower at night. Another thing, the maid only visited once during our week long stay; I thought the place would've been cleaned at least twice. Overall, we enjoyed and would stay again!

Owner's Response: Dear LaDreena,
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at The Villa. We do recommend that our guests rent their own vehicle especially if they are going out in the evenings, just because it does get very dark early and our roadway is very steep. We have contacted our manager and he will be replacing any missing lights tomorrow. We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused you during your stay but the previous guests did not bring this to our attention and sometimes there are power surges that blow some of the light bulbs. Most of our guests enjoy the privacy that The Villa offers and prefer not to have more than a mid week cleaning. If you had asked our manager, he would have gladly sent the maid for any additional cleaning, at no extra cost but we do everything to respect our guests privacy. Thank you for your constructive suggestions and we will attend to them right away.
Best wishes, Susan

Wonderful Villa for Two

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I visited Costa Rica for the first time and stayed in this villa for a week. We fell in love with it's panoramic ocean views and the beautiful infinity pool. Great kitchen and pretty spacious for two people. We would recommend this spot for any couple looking for a romantic place to stay while visiting Costa Rica!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
I don't know how much more I can say as all other reviewers before me agree-the house is perfection. It was bigger than it looked in photos which is always a pleasant surprise. We ate breakfast and had cocktails on the patio every day. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. You may want to do an inventory of what is there before you shop. We bought spices and sugar when the house already had an ample supply. Thomas was great. He arranged all of our tours for us (which were also great) and called us right back when the power was out in the house (due to wide power outage. Take advantage of Itza. Her massage on the beach was the closest I've come to drooling in public.
I highly recommend for honeymooners. Romantic, private, serene. A wonderful experience that we will treasure forever!

What a unique and special property!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for an awesome view in a very private location, perfectly situated to explore the great restaurants as well as the M.A. national park... This would be the place to go.
Thomas is the concierge and was very available. The home is classy and clean. It's not a large home, but the outdoor space was where we found ourselves most mornings and nights - the place to relax and soak it all in. After driving around Quepos and MA, it became clear you can end up in lodging that just doesn't match up, so if we return we will stay here again! Thanks for making my 50th bday a special and very memorable stay!!
