No Place Better!

  • 5 of 5

For my 60th bday I wanted a trip with my children. Seven of us stayed in this magnificent house with spectacular views. All the bedrooms had a view of the ocean. We spent most of our time gathered around the spacious kitchen which opened into a huge family room with a view of gorgeous foliage and the ocean. Mornings were spent on the deck with coffee and often shared with the monkeys, the resident sloth, iguana and a pair of toucans. We spent a couple of afternoons around the beautiful pool.

What made this house the best, besides the great layout and tasteful decor, was the staff. Sani, our concierge, was wonderful even before we arrived. He communicated with us by email, answered all our questions, arranged pick up at the airport and tours and excursions. We only had 4 days, but they were the best 4 days we could have ever imagined! Edwin, our driver, was waiting for us at the airport. On our way home he stopped at a fruit stand where the vendors cut fresh fruit for us to taste. Next he stopped at a bridge where we got out and looked down at huge crocodiles!

Sani was waiting outside for us. When he opened the door, we all gasped! Not only was this house breathtaking, but the smells from Lily and Rachel's cooking were amazing. After a long day of travel, it was such a treat to have appetizers waiting for us and a dinner that was better than any restaurant we had ever been to. The best part was that we felt like we had walked into a friend's home. Sani, Lily and Rachel were so warm and friendly and made us feel as though they knew us.

In the morning we met Juan who comes every day to maintain the pool and the grounds. He always had a smile on his face and pointed out animals to us! Hailen was our housekeeper who kept the place neat and clean. We hardly knew she was there but we'd go looking for her just to say hello! She was sweet and pleasant and even washed our clothes!

Casa Alegria is in a great location. We toured a national park with lots of wildlife and a beautiful beach. We went "Canyoning". We walked to the beach and stayed to see the spectacular sunset. The last day, Sani treated us to his own private tour where we hiked to his favorite waterfall and swam in "the pot" and had lunch at a local restaurant that served fresh tilapia caught on site.

We ended the trip with another of Lily's fabulous meals. None of us wanted to leave. It was truly a trip of a lifetime.

Villa Lived Up To It's Reputation

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of eight (aged 13yrs to 68 yrs), and still found the villa spacious. After just a day in the villa we were well relaxed, and the week just passed by. We found activities to suit us all (rafting - the scenery up the valley was worth the drive alone, surfing down at the beach was a 5 min walk away, the Manuel Antonio park was 2 mins by taxi)

The highlight was the widelife coming by the villa (Toucans tapping on the window at 7am every morning, monkey's, the Sloth close by). We will be back again to Casa Alegria.

Great Way to Spend a Birthday Celebration

  • 4 of 5

A group of eight of us had the best stay at the villa! The daily morning monkey parade was a great way to start the day. The outings we requested but set-up by the house concierge were just fantastic. The town of Manuel Antonio has plenty to offer. Be sure you are ready to walk hills.

We are ready to come back to Costa Rica during the rainy season to experience even more adventures in the region. I would be happy to stay at Casa Alegria again.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had such a great time at Casa Alegria. We will be happy to have you back again at Casa Alegria or any of my homes on VisitMyVilla,com for your upcoming trip for the 'green season'. I personally love the green season... cooler temperatures, lower prices, fewer people, better water for rafting, and everything is so GREEN! See you again soon...

Fabulous Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time during our stay at Casa Alegria. We loved the daily visits from the monkeys, and it was way cool having the Sloth (we nicknamed him Sid) show up every evening to enjoy the sunset on his private perch next to the Villa.

Maribel and Israel were are Private Chefs that cooked dinner for us each evening….phenomenal cuisine, and what better to enjoy Casa Alegria than to begin with Chips and Guacamole on the deck viewing beautiful sunsets, and then to move inside for a family dinner.

Your Manuel Antonio team of Suni, Hailyn and Juan did a wonderful job of keeping everything perfect, and responding to any/every need we had.

We’ll be back

Pura Vida

An amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

There aren't enough words to describe how fabulous Casa Alegria is. The pictures don't do it justice.

The inside was comfortable, spacious and more than adequate. The living area was open so that we felt like we were together whether we were relaxing, cooking, eating...the bedrooms were large with a great floor plan. The beds were comfortable. All of us slept very well. Everything you would want or need was included including a large gas grill that was cleaned for us whenever we used it.

The outdoor patios were amazing. Every day we had our morning coffee of the deck. The views were to die for but the wildlife was spectacular. We saw beautiful birds, a pair of Toucans, a sloth, an iguana and monkeys galore. The morning we were leaving the monkeys paraded across the patio while we were there! One mother was carrying a baby on her back. It made the week for all of us!

Everyone we encountered either at the house or arranged by the house were friendly, competent, and bent over backwards to help us. The groceries we ordered were waiting for us, the van driver from the San Jose airport felt like an old friend, the housekeeper kept everything perfect, excursions, rental car, whatever we needed they helped us with.

We also loved the location. There were several terrific restaurants within walking distance. The beach was very nice. The most disappointing thing for us was that the beach access below the house was locked and the woman would not open it unless we paid her. The walk to the beach was reasonable although long but since it was straight up hill to get home, a taxi was the way to go.

I would highly recommend Casa Alegria to anyone.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed our home. It is unfortunate that the 3 minute 'short cut' to the beach is sometimes illegally blocked by a hotel owner. Fortunately, Alegria is still one of the closest homes to the beach so it's just a 10 minute walk to the beach on the main road which is always open.

Absolutely Ideal

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Casa Alegria! Everything was absolutely ideal. The house, the setting, the people who helped us out..... it couldn't have been better! And Rafael's... the perfect restaurant/bar right there!

We went on amazing hikes in Manuel Antonio and also a rainforest hike.... we went on the 11 in 1 adventure and had tons of fun, we went white water rafting and our raft capsized! We got a little banged up in the rapids but all is well. It was very exciting.

The food and evening entertainment (some salsa dancing) was great too. We will definitely be back at some point... Can't stay away.

Anyway... we've been telling everyone how fantastic the whole experience was.
