Casa Tango is a Way of Life

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Tango. The home is beautifully maintained and comfortable. The common areas are landscaped with care and provide a nearly private swimming pool available anytime. The large deck offers a perfect place to sit quietly and observe the monkeys on the adjacent perserved land. It is walking distance to restaurants and beaches, and it provides a lovely, safe and affordable environment for emerging into the culture of Manuel Antonio. Latin expresses this as convivere, or living happily together and at ease in the company of others. Casa Tango made convivere easy in Manuel Antonio.

Owner's Response: Monkeys are not only visible on the adjacent land, but also in the gardens surrounding near the villa...as are sloths, iquanas and other animals as well as birds of all kinds and colors. Keep a pair of binoculars at hand for wild life viewing.

Enjoyable stay among local wildlife!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Tango, especially the location in general and the pool in particular. It was blisteringly hot that week, so the a/c was welcome. The fans were not so effective. The property was clean, well equipped and maintained but was not the one in the picture on the website by the pool. We managed to communicate with Pia the on-site manager,when necessary, but did not meet Eddie. So our immediate local knowledge was limited. The location of the villa was excellent for wildlife viewing - we saw all 3 species of local monkeys within a few days of our arrival, some for a considerable length of time. We loved swimming in the pool and looking into the surrounding forest. There were many species of butterflies. Turn left out of the property, past the nearby restau'rant, and turn left again for a good bird spotting area. Also saw an unusual variant of the blue morpho there. A short walk to the main road brings you to the frequent bus service to Queypos or Manuel Antonio. We recommend the sunset cruise from Queypos with Sunset Sail tours [food, drink and snorkelling included] as well as the Manuel Antonio Park. We eat at Ronnie's place with a wonderful sunset view, although the food is pricey. Mono Azul hotel, round the corner from Casa Tango, is great for smoothies and a good deal of local knowledge from the friendly American owners. Cocktails on the beach at Playa Espadilla are great fun and the hotel on the other side of the main road from Casa Tango, Hotel mimos, has a good restaurant. Overall, we would recommend the property for its pool and location but would advise a/c in the lounge area as a welcome addition. We were able to cook regularly and enjoy excellent local produce. If, like us, you are heading for Montezuma after Manuel Antonio check out anyone who combines a shuttle with the boat from Jaco - there are some good deals around and it doesnt take too long.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for enjoying our beautiful property and the wonders of Manuel Antonio! Sorry you thought our villa was next to the pool. If you look at the first photo on our HomeAway site, you'll see that it says "Looking at our Roof Top." That's our home right there. Our second photo shows "Side of Villa." You can just see the next villa to the right. That's the house that sits next to the pool. Our guests, as well as ourselves have always felt that our villa provides the most privacy and is still a very short distance from the gorgeous swimming pool. Thank you again for sharing your enjoyment with us! We hope to host you again. Very best, Ann P.S. We are always updating the furnishings and comfort of our property. Our latest update includes new orthopedic mattrasses for every bed.

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first (of four) destinations and I am glad it was this way. We stayed a whole week and enjoyed each day. The comfort, spaciousness and convenience of this gem surely cannot be surpassed. The home is beautifully kept with a fully functional kitchen which we used for 2 meals everyday. The pool was great for the kids and they looked forward to it everyday. Ann, the owner, was gracious and responsive from the start. The Manager, Eddie helped us with reliable tours and was always available for questions or help. We used the public bus, just at the corner of the road to go to Manuel Antonio and Quepos as needed. There is not one thing I'd have had any different. Thank you Ann and Eddie for such a grand introduction to Costa Rica!

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

I have been the On Site Manager for this exceptional Villa for over four years and have participated in helping the owners care, maintain and improve their property. Ann and Willy always think in terms of comfort and beauty for their guests, and for themselves. Their sense of design always fits in with the environment and enhances privacy and quiet, affording a truly unique living area in harmony with nature. The Villa, located in our small community of seven homes, is in a setting of beautiful gardens with a swimming pool and surrounded by jungle giving view to many of the animals that makes Costa Rica noteworthy. This property is fully furnished and provides everything you need to enjoy your vacation. I am always available to help you with your vacation needs…whether it be a Canopy Tour, Sailboat ride at sunset…or maid service.

Great rental!

  • 4 of 5

This place is central to everything, clean, and very affordable. If I was going to buy property in Costa Rica, I'd be trying to buy this place from Ann, the owner.

My wife and I stayed here with our son last year, as well another couple. The balcony was great for sitting and playing cards, especially on stormy nights.

The only minor drawbacks are:

1. When we stayed there, there was a minor plumbing problem, I believe, which caused a sewage smell to come out of the shower drain in the main bathroom.

2. If I remember correctly, there are only 3 parking spots for the entire complex. One night we just had to leave the vehicle on the road, although it didn't end up being an issue.

When we return to this area, and we will, Casa Tango will be our first choice of places to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jay, for this review and we're so happy you enjoyed our Villa! Please note that the plumbing problem you mention was minor...and was corrected. Now everything smells only of the sweet flowers of Costa Rica (including the new ylang ylang tree planted along side the terrace.) Also, the parking lot has been extented and there are now four lots. Thank you again and hope we'll have the pleasure of your return!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in this vacation home. It's location is perfect, close enough to town to get there easily and quickly but far enough to be able to relax in a peaceful area. We felt very safe in the house. The complex is surrounded by trees and the first thing we noticed when we arrived were squirrel monkeys playing on our roof! One of the trees by the pool serves as a home to a couple sloths. The house was very well kept and clean. It was very nicely decorated and everyone was super friendly! I highly recommend this vacation home!
