Overview

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 master suite bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12

Villa Perezoso is the gem of Manuel Antonio. Awarded Best Vacation Rental in Manuel Antonio for 2011 and 2012, recipient of over a hundred five-star guest reviews, and featured in Su Casa and Ocean Home, Villa Perezoso promises a Costa Rican getaway you will talk about for years to come.

Boasting a full staff—including a personal chef, a bartender, housekeeping, and an on-site concierge—Villa Perezoso combines the luxury amenities of a five-star resort with the privacy and personalization of an intimate vacation rental that’s wholly yours.

A wall of glass at the front of this five-bedroom, six-bathroom villa ensures that every room faces the lush Costa Rican jungle and the boulder-studded sea. Because the villa is situated on a tropical hillside at the edge of Manuel Antonio National Park, guests regularly spot monkeys, toucans, and the sloths from which Villa Perezoso gets its name.

You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy this dynamic setting, because all gourmet meals, cleaning, tour booking, grocery shopping, and even transportation are taken care of by Villa Perezoso’s prized staff.

Villa Perezoso’s chef, Ober Arroyo, was professionally trained in Madrid, Spain. When you arrive, Chef Ober will meet with you to plan the menu. He is more than happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions. Or just let the chef work his magic—his signature dishes include paella and tres leche cake.

Victor Porras, your 24/7 concierge, is a Costa Rica native and will help you experience the best of your surroundings. Many guests don’t leave the property, and we don’t blame them. However, if your group is eager for excursions, you can zip-line or raft down a river through the rainforest, or take it a little easier and walk down to the beach or nearby café. Whatever your choice, you won’t need a car—Victor will take care of all the transportation details for you.

Every room in the 6,000-square-foot Villa Perezoso features handcrafted furnishings and accessories from Bali, such as solid hardwood furniture and vibrant fabrics—details that add to the feeling of luxury and immersion in total beauty. Most rooms also have attached terraces extending out into the jungle, with more than enough lounge chairs for your entire group.

Sumptuous, first-level lodging options include the exceptional Grand Master Suite, with its king canopy bed, yoga/meditation space, iPod docking station, flatscreen TV, air conditioning, and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide magnificent views of the jungle. Get even closer to nature by taking a book and a coffee onto the furnished private terrace. The en suite bathroom offers a private, glass-door shower, so you can duck under the spray and look out over the rainforest and the ocean.

Two more Master Suites also have private decks, air-conditioning, flatscreen TVs, docks for your iPod, ceiling fans, and large en suite bathrooms. One of these has a king bed, the other has two doubles.

On the second level, an open living space is fitted with floor-to-ceiling glass doors to keep the lush Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio National Park in view. These doors open up to a wrap-around terrace with a pool, cushioned Balinese teak lounge chairs, and outdoor dining table—all spots where wildlife are known to frolic. The living area provides ample seating, a dining table for 12 plus a bar, a gourmet kitchen where Chef Ober crafts his epicurean delights, a large full bathroom, and an air-conditioned entertainment room with three additional sofas and 42-inch plasma TV.

We call the third level The Penthouse. This space houses two more master suites, plus a full living area with a second gourmet kitchen (a great place to fix a snack or a cup of coffee), and views of the Pacific extending from one side and the jungle from the other.

The fourth level—the Penthouse Loft and Sun Deck—is reached from a grand circular staircase and is encased in glass for 280-degree views. From the rooftop terrace, you can sink into the Jacuzzi tub with your signature cocktail and watch the sunset fade into a twinkling night sky. To experience the bird’s eye views of the sun terrace is to capture the essence of Manuel Antonio. We also recommend this spot for an in-house massage—Victor will help arrange one for you.

In short, the award-winning Villa Perezoso presents captivating views, gourmet meals, your own on-site personal concierge, and up-close-and-personal experiences with wildlife that you’ll never forget.

Search Villa Perezoso on YouTube for a full tour—of course, no camera can capture its beauty, but it’s a start.

As you would imagine, the calendar fills fast. Book your indulgent Manuel Antonio getaway at Villa Perezoso today. Sleeps 10-12. 2, 3 and 5 bedroom rental option.

About Seda Sejud

Ex-entrepreneur from the corporate world marries oral surgeon. Oral surgeon retires to spend more time in Costa Rica. Now doing what we really love to do...specializing in the vacation marketplace and enjoying life. Loves include travel, villa interior design (importing furnishings and accessories from Bali), marketing our villa property and fixing things! Our goal is to create the perfect vacation experience for our guests. We love what we do, LOVE Manuel Antonio, and hope to have the pleasure of helping you with your vacation, villa needs.

Seda Sejud purchased this villa in 2008

Why Seda Sejud chose Manuel Antonio

To us, Manuel Antonio is as close to paradise as it gets. Our dream was to someday live in a tropical haven, near the beach and somewhere not too far from 'home' (California). Having traveled nearly all the continents and vacationed on many of the worlds' best islands and tropical destinations, upon arriving in Manuel Antonio in November of 2003, we knew we had to live there someday. Not only was the place magical, the views heavenly, the beaches some of the best we've ever encountered but the friendliness of the people of Costa Rica, the emphasis on preserving their beautiful country, we knew when we arrived that we were hooked and that we wanted to make Costa Rica our next home. We found a gorgeous property with some of the best views we have encountered, bought it and started building. With Bali being another favorite destination of ours, we wanted to bring what we loved about Bali to Costa Rica--from the feeling of living outdoors to using natural materials and woods and stones to the top notch service they provide their guests. Our architect did a beautiful job taking our vision and in creating Villa Perezoso (named for the resident sloth), with every room having distinctive ocean and jungle views. We travelled to Bali to have all the furniture and accessories custom built for the property and had it transported to Costa Rica. It was a labor of love building it from the ground up and we love the finished product as do our guests.

What makes this villa unique

Simply stated, our staff. From our charming house manager/butler who always has a smile on his face and has lived in the area and worked in the hotel industry for over 20 years and who is here to serve you 24/7, to our world trained full time chef, to our favorite drink mixologist, and our never in the way sweet housekeeping staff, you will be pampered beyond your imagination. You will never have to lift a finger here at Villa Perezoso as we will do all the lifting for you! Whether it's to.... go food shopping, clean up, prepare and serve the most tasty, gourmet meals, to the drink making, to advice on the best activities or local culture, to running an errand or getting that extra bottle of rum, our staff will take care of it all. We also love that nature beckons right outside, I personally love the monkey visits and am always excited on seeing a 'perezoso' in the nearby guarumo tree. If I could pick out two of my favorite things about Villa Perezoso is 1) the staff and how they spoil us and our guests and 2) the openness of each of the rooms (especially the bathrooms with floor to ceiling glass doors that open up allowing you to shower looking out to the vast jungle and pacific ocean. Its a slice of paradise found. And, the wildlife that you will experience at the Villa will make you feel as if you were in your very own National Geographic movie!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Villa Perezoso was absolutely outstanding. Victor was an amazing host that organized our week, made sure we were well taken care of, and made sure remade the most of each and every day. Randall and Over were amazing. Every dinner was outstanding. It was so relaxing knowing that every meal was being perp eared for our two families. It was our first time to Costa Rica; we all had a great experience. Zip lining, surfing,snorkeling, and rafting. We thank the entire staff at Villa Perezoso for this experience Look forward to coming again.

Wonderful, wonderful, and more wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Villa Perezoso is the most beautiful vacation rental my family has stayed in! The Manuel Antonio area is full of activities and the staff is eager the set up amazing adventures for you and your family/friends. The property itself is beyond words! Very clean and well maintained. The pool/deck views are breathtaking. Randall, the house manager, is very helpful, attentive, and eager to please! He set up surfing, white water rafting, deep sea fishing, massages, atv tour, and hikes to waterfalls for my family and I! Ober, the chef, is a world trained chef that makes nothing short of five star quality restaurant meals! We had paella, sushi, BBQ, fish, salads, and mouth watering desserts all with local flare. My family and I have been twice and we fully intend to return next year!

Do yourself a favor and if you are heading to Costa Rica stay at Villa Perezoso! You will not be disappointed!

pure pampering

  • 5 of 5

Our group of twelve ranging in age from 10 to 70 stayed here for 5 days to celebrate my husbands 70 birthday. We could not have chosen a better place for our vacation. The staff was amazing, providing food and drinks for all of our diversified tastes, and always with a smile. Victor arranged for our adventures each day, and the spa treatments at the villa were the best we have ever enjoyed. I highly recommend Villa Perezosa, you will be glad you gave in to all this pampering!

It Really Doesn't Get Better

  • 5 of 5

Villa Perezoso is nothing short of spectacular. Victor, Randall, Over and Cecilia are the best at making the stay at a private villa unparalleled. From the moment you arrive you're at ease. Each room is equally amazing with showers that are private and open to the incredible vistas of Manuel Antonio. In addition, exploring Costa Rica was sometimes less exciting than sitting on the deck at Villa Perezoso watching the howler, capuchin and squirrel monkeys play in the treetops below. The food and drink is five star. I have never written a recommendation for anywhere I have stayed, but I could not miss an opportunity to promote this gem!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The multitude of wildlife that come for daily visits still mesmerizes us each time we are at the Villa as well. I'm glad to hear our staff served you well, they truly do make up the Villa Perezoso family and aim to please our guests so they leave with a feeling of "Pura Vida" and vacation memories of a lifetime. Hope to see you back!

Go No Further... Seriously!

  • 5 of 5

You will NOT find a more ideal location than Villa Perezoso, so you can stop looking. We have just taken our second vacation to Costa Rica and stayed here for the second time. That says a lot. It is truly a world class villa. It runs like a hotel with complete services at any time day or night, yet no noises (other than what you and your guests make and the howler monkeys outside your windows which have terrible manners but fun to watch.) You chose your own meals. At the end of a long day you are served your drink of choice while your meal is being prepared and before the serving staff leaves for the night, you will discuss your plans and meal choices for the next day. With private showers that open to the most gorgeous outside views where you feel like you are showering in the tropics... awesome! You will surprise yourself with how comfortable the staff makes you feel and you will leave wishing you could take them with you. Don't miss this spot. You will have the trip of a lifetime!

Resort, retreat, and adventure all in one!

  • 5 of 5

The house, the team, the locale are all incredible. The place was clean, beautiful, and exceeded our expectations. We were treated like royalty but felt like family. The activities (surfing - see Randall at the house!, canopy zipline, sport fishing, and more) recommended were superb - this team knows how to take care of you. The owner (Seda) is considerate, and has spent many hours creating a retreat that is five star. She has a keen eye for what it takes to create a memorable experience, and she and her local team deliver. And the wildlife is all around - and breathtaking. Unqualified recommendation, and by the way, we intend to return!
