Guestbook comments from the manager
My wife and I stayed at Casa Kaylen for two weeks in January 2013 and recommend it. The house sits on a hillside covered in tropical trees and plants. As the breeze moves the leaves through the patterns of sunlight, you can see hundreds of tints of green plus pink, orange, red, yellow and purple. It is a mini manicured jungle and we loved it. Many times we saw monkeys in the trees above the house.



The big square red tiles on the floor of the kitchen-dining area extend outside the house to the patio which is private to the world and surrounded by a white guard rail. It offers a view of the sea and the north coast beyond Quepos. One can sit out there and watch the sun lighten the sky in the morning and turn the leaves to black silhouettes in the evening. It is so private that one can take a shower in the house and sun dry on the patio au nature should one (or even two) feel the au nature impulse.



The sea and the coast north of Quepos are also visible from the bed. It is wonderful to awake in the morning with this view.



Rebecca visited us several times, was always available by house phone, answered our questions, was friendly, informed, polite and very likable. Her Husband, Jacob, understood the house systems and was immediately available to fix or supply anything we needed. Since they were both Americans, there was no language barrier. If you rent a VRBO house, anywhere you will be lucky to get on-site property manager as responsible, competent and attentive as Rebecca.



The superb Espadilla beach is of fine, grey powder sand. It is long, wide and dramatic with little surf. It is terminated on both ends by cliffs running into the sea, backed by steep jungle and out in the sea studded by rocky islands which are apparently fragments ejected by a long ago volcanic eruption. Most of the beach is untenanted by bossy life guards and those few on duty don’t aggrandize themselves by annoying people as is often the case at US beaches. Over half the people on the beach are tourists. You can walk to the beach and take the bus back to the house.



You can buy really fresh fish at Martec at the bus station in Quepos. If you want primeval jungle covering ravines, suspension bridges and plunging in river pools visit the Rainmaker Park about 20 km north of Quepos. It is 100 times better than the park at Manual Antonio.

Fantastic Bungalow in Manuel Antonio!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I booked at 3 night stay at Casa Kaylen, for our Manuel Antonio portion of our Costa Rica trip. Luckily, we were able to add an extra night on to our trip, and arrived a day early! Best decision ever! We loved the bungalow, it suited our needs perfectly. The house is very charming, inside and out...the photos are true to life. The grounds are gorgeous and the bungalow has a great open design, and is nicely decorated, perfect touches as far as furnishings and artwork.... with everything you'd need for a nice vacation in paradise. We really enjoyed the charm of the bungalow, as well as the beautiful tropical grounds (such amazing plants! like from a dr seuss book!) and the view of the ocean. The house was very secure, as others have mentioned...you will not be worried about your valuables and electronics if you lock up accordingly! There are two beaches about a 20-30 minute walk from the house...very hilly, as is everything in MA, but doable for able-bodied people. Only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, a bank and a mini-grocery store....the house is perfectly located. Monkeys occasionally visit in the trees, which is very fun! Some car/truck traffic noise from the nearby road...it was noted in a previous review, but it was just louder than I was expecting! Overall, we had a great stay and a fantastic vacation! The only thing it lacks would be a hammock (or a hot tub) on the deck overlooking the forest and ocean! Just a super place, great memories, felt like we had our own little slice of paradise. Thank you!!

Would definitely recommend this place for couples or a very small family of 3, 4 would be tight. I highly recommend taking advantage of the kitchen facilities in the house, and maybe stock up on breakfast/lunch supplies, as the restaurants/cafes in MA are VERY expensive!

Great Property Manager!

  • 4 of 5
We were in Manuel Antonio for a wedding and stayed at Casa Kaylen for a full week. Rebecca, the property manager, was absolutely great! She picked us up at the airport in Quepos, gave us great recommendations about restaurants and activities, and was very responsive to anything that we might have needed. Any issues that we encountered were handled promptly and it was an absolute pleasure doing business with her. The house is very conveniently located and is perfect for a couple looking for a bit of a getaway. The amenities are simple, but all you need in order to enjoy a great time in Costa Rica!

Great spot!!!

  • 5 of 5
Location!!! Just around the corner from great restaurants, cafes, and bars. Truly a unique experience for adventure seekers, as this house is Costa Rica at its best. Playa Espadilla and Manuel Antonio National Park are both just a short drive from the house, but can be walked if need be. There's also a bus that takes you there, and runs about every 20 minutes.

We felt Casa Kaylen was so easy to enjoy. The surroundings were beautiful, the location was perfect for getting around, with or without a car. Rebecca was so accommodating with information about anything Costa Rica. The nearby beaches each had special qualities, active and relaxing. So many views, so much beauty to take in. I was there with my 2 adult daughters..., well equipped for home comforts, wifi, phone. We felt very safe and private. We could hear the nearby road, but not see it, and were never bothered... it was nice to be convenient to town. The people of Costa Rica are all about sharing their world. Pura Vida.

Great location and awesome property manager!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stopped in Manuel Antonio for three days at the start of the rainy season as stop two on our honeymoon. Even before we arrived, Rebecca (the property manager) was a great sounding board for our questions and concerns. We felt perfectly comfortable dealing across countries and time zones in her capable hands.

Shortly before we arrived, extra security features had been added to the house (a new safe, a practically impenetrable closet door, and enough deadbolts to satisfy even the most cautious tourist). We felt both that we and our gadgets were perfectly safe for the duration of our stay, and Rebecca definitely went the extra mile to make sure that we did.

What really epitomizes Rebecca's awesomeness is that my wife and I accidentally left behind one of the keepsakes from our trip we'd been most excited about. Rebecca found it and volunteered to send it along--we plan to reimburse her for the shipping, but it was great that she found it and offered to send it!

The house itself is perfectly serviceable and, essentially, super cute. The location is pretty good, and Rebecca passes along all the information about tours, restaurants, beaches, and anything else that you could want.

Definitely receives five stars!

Awesome place, awesome location, awesome renter

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I just spent a few days here and we had a great time! The people before us left a nasty review about theft, but we didn't experience anything like that. We felt safe the whole time. Other than that, the place is nice and clean, great view of the ocean, a short walk to the beach and very close to several restaurants and bars. We went to a farmers' market in Quepos on Friday night and bought a bunch of fresh food and cooked it right in the kitchen.
Rebecca was great, she met us at the house even though we showed up an hour late, gave us a run through, and even gave us a folder about all the local restaurants, activities, beaches and everything. We would definitely go back and stay there for longer!
