Manuel Antonio Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Private 1 Bedroom apartment with Ocean View, walk to beach!

Guests say - what a spectacular view! The pictures do not do it justice. This private, one-bedroom ocean view apartment is located in an ideal area of Manuel Antonio close to the beach and teeming with wildlife. The Apartment has the closest proximity to the beach than most rental properties with Ocean View. White Face and Titi Monkeys, Sloths, Toucans and hundreds of species of exotic birds surround the area. Adventure lovers can go surfing, white water rafting, sport fishing, horseback riding, or take an exciting canopy/zip line tour. You will have a concierge/manager available to help you choose the most exciting tours, suggest the best transportation options available, direct you to the best restaurants, and answer any questions you have about the property, area, etc.

This apartment is most comfortable for singles or couples but can sleep 3 using the futon. For more room and amenities, including a private pool, please consider renting my 2-bedroom Villa same location (for information see HomeAway.com/317280 or VRBO.com/150740). The Apartment has a full bath and a large walk-in closet. There is Cable TV, Telephone, and Wifi Internet access. There are no steep steps to get to this property as there are for most of the hillside properties in the area. The kitchen is fully furnished for your convenience with a microwave, stove top burners, and full size refrigerator. If you are looking for comfortable, economical accommodations with a million dollar view, Apartment La Vista awaits you!

We are Steve and Nancy Dunlap and live in Cleveland, TN (not far from Chattanooga). We built La Vista in 1998 while we were still both working. Our plan was to enjoy the peaceful beauty of this location when we retired. We have finally made that dream come true as we both retired in 2010.

Nancy Dunlap purchased this apartment in 1998

My husband and I built Villa/Apartment la Vista in 1998. We discovered Costa Rica while on vacation and before the huge influx of tourists began. We fell in love with the natural beauty of this amazing country and all that it had to offer. Being wildlife and nature lovers, it was truly a paradise for us.

If you want an escape from the everyday, consider our Manuel Antonio vacation rental in Costa Rica and experience a little slice of paradise. Manuel Antonio travel offers visitors world-class beaches and magnificent views from La Vista of magnificent sunsets with Cathedral Point as a backdrop. From this Manuel Antonio vacation rental, you can explore all the charm of Costa Rica with scuba diving in the crystal waters, rafting down the wilds of the Naranjo River, or hiking in the Manuel Antonio National Park. 24 of the 27 major adventure activities offered in Costa Rica are available in Manuel Antonio so there is little need to waste your vacation time traveling to and from other areas.

As you explore Manuel Antonio, take in the amazing combination of lush vegetation and spectacular scenery. This Manuel Antonio vacation rental gives you access to a part of the world few people get to see. Known for its exoticness, Manuel Antonio houses a myriad of interesting creatures including sloths, iguanas, raccoons, white-faced and howler monkeys, and the unique squirrel monkey -- all frequently visit the area around La Vista. Although the location offers a glimpse into the majesty of the rainforest, Manuel Antonio travel also allows vacationers to enjoy exquisite cuisine in many nearby restaurants like Barba Roja for seafood (within walking distance), Marlintinis for fine dining, or El Avión for the atmosphere.

Exotic Vacation!!

We had the best time in Costa Rica while staying at the apartment La Vista. The size of the apartment was adequate for the two of us. It was very clean and I love the bathroom very sufficient use of space. Spectacular view from the balcony and soothing sounds of the waves, made this a relaxing vacation. The hike to the beach is on a steep path that is an adventure all on its own, but so worth it. The exercise actually helped build endurance for our planned excursions. The beach is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and will forever compare any beach in my future to this one. The food was amazing everywhere we went and not expensive, the locals are really happy people (who wouldn't be living in Paradise!!). The photos we took while on vacation could easily be put in National Geographic such an incredible experience. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an Adventure of a lifetime, we plan on coming back and bringing friends next time. We will most likely rent the entire villa and the apartment I can not wait to have my children experience Costa Rica La Vista style. The owner was extremely helpful and honest and up front about making sure we understood stealing is the number one crime in Costa Rica, from Ticos to Monkeys. We took only a towel and water to the beach no bag with cell phones and money. We went to Manuel Antonio National Park and climbed to Cathedral Point and Brian set his bag down and we were helping a couple take their picture, when the girl says "they have your bag!" A White face monkey held his bag over the rail and used gravity to help him pull the bag of peanuts located in a mesh pocket. He got the peanuts and the backpack tumbled down the side of the cliff. I got it back but that was another adventure hahah. Just be aware and proactive otherwise you may have to be reactive and missing your nuts. The Manager Sabrina helped us book our excursions and they provided transportation from our doorstep. We horseback rode on the beach with Alua, did the ATV tour and hiked in the Rain Maker with suspended bridges, and did a 7 hour tour with first being served a delicious breakfast then a Unimog taking us up the side of a mountain and hiking through the rain forest to swing like Tarzan over a waterfall and then rappel down a cliff and zip line down through a waterfall, and then they served a Tico lunch well worth the money!! This place would be excellent for Honeymoons, Weddings, Vacations!

Excellent Location - Beautiful View - Wildlife All Around

We stayed 5 nights in the downstairs apartment at Steve and Nancy's oasis while on our honeymoon in February 2014. The villa was easy to find with Nancy's detailed directions and we knew exactly what to expect from the info provided. The beach was a short 10 minute walk down a steep hill to the most FABULOUS sunsets and quiet beach. There was also a great view from the balcony of our unit. We spent quite a bit of time up in the upstairs unit (Nancy and Steve happened to be staying there!) and that unit looked clean and fully appointed for everything one could need (just as our downstairs apartment was!). The views from both upstairs and downstairs were amazing - and it was awesome watching the squirrel monkeys dart around the trees as we relaxed on the balcony (this happened every day!). We can't wait to return - hopefully in the near future! Thank you again Nancy for all of your lovely conversations and thoughtful recommendations. We really enjoyed our time staying in VILLA LA VISTA!!

Manuel Antonio is Irresistable - Pura Vida!

  • Submitted: Sep 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Staying in Apartment La Vista has been a great pleasure. This has been the only vacation I can remember when getting to sleep early was no effort in anticipation of waking at 5:30 a.m. to bright sunshine, sparkling surf and the bird sounds in the trees. What a fabulous location you have! We've had visits from monkeys, toucans, mot-mots, and a daiy stopover for one particular Tananger (very bright red wings). We did not start out as birding people but evolved over several days. The property manager/concierge was fantastic and helped us make the most out of our stay by picking the best tours and restaurants. The Apartment was very clean and well maintained and the Staff friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Apartment La Vista and hope to return again soon.

The View Was Incredible!

  • Submitted: Sep 19, 2012

We wanted to thank you for the use of your cozy apartment while we were touring the Manuel Antonio area. The view from the apartment was awesome and much more beautiful than we expected. Pictures do not do it justice. My husband and I were very comfortable and the property manager, Ron, checked on us daily and reserved some exciting tours for us. However, just sitting and relaxing on the balcony being entertained by the resident Sloth and occasional monkeys passing by, was delightful. I highly recommend this little gem to couples looking for a picturesque setting surrounded by natural jungle and wildlife. We plan to return again soon!

Wow! What a great time we had in Costa Rica and our stay at the Villa La Vista apartment in Manuel Antonio was wonderful. Our accommodations were perfect - a comfortable bed, great eat in kitchen with all the amenities - fabulous views. We woke up in the morning and sat up in bed to gaze out at the ocean - what could be better! As we enjoyed our morning coffee we watched numerous birds - toucans, fly catchers, hummingbirds in the trees and bushes right outside our door. We saw many lizards and iguanas and watched monkeys jumping through the canopy of trees below. One night we even saw a kinkajou jump on the balcony roof and into the trees - what a cute creature. We enjoyed local food, fun and friends. It was a great time and we can't wait to go back! Thank you Steve and Nancy for a fabulous time.
