FAMILY HOME FOR FAMILY WEDDING

  • 4 of 5
Pete's Place provided us a place to house part of our family for a destination wedding. This is a comfortable and affordable home centrally located in Manuel Antonio adjacent to the main road. We had good access to groceries, restaurants and taxis. The bus line is also on the main road for good, cheap local transportation.

The owner helped us set up our airport transfers and advised us on other local needs. He was available whenever we needed and there is a housekeeper and gardener working to keep everything in good shape.

We enjoyed the pool at the edge of the jungle and the views from the veranda. The wifi worked well with all our devices.

If you are concerned about security, rest assured. We called the place a fortress because it takes 3 keys to get from the gate into the house.

SPRING TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Pete's Place was an awesome place to stay for Spring Break. We are 2 adults and one teenager and it was perfect. Everyone was so nice and willing to help with whatever. Pete was around if we needed, but was not all over us. Itza took care of all our tours and transportation and did a great job. My wife says that she also gives a great massage on the beach! This is not a resort, but if you want to ride the bus, eat and hang out with the locals, I highly recommend it. The pool is really awesome. After a day full of adventures, come home and jump in a huge, private pool set in the jungle. That's what I'm talking about! Thanks Pete and Itza!

GREAT STAY AT PETE'S PLACE

Great Stay at Pete's Place
  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the extra room a house gives you over a hotel (we were 2 adults 2 children), access to a washer and dryer after a week in CR, the ability to walk to the grocery store, ATM, and various restaurants. We did not have a car and it was not a problem. Tours pick you up at the house and just 'Pete's Place' is all the info they need. Kitchen and furnishings were sufficient, coffee and a few other staples kindly provided in the fridge. Mountain view porch extremely pleasant all times of day. Walls not extending to ceiling not an issue for us at all. Made it seem very tropical. House is not luxurious. It is fairly basic but extremely comfortable for a family and very conveniently located. I'm not usually a big air conditioning fan but it was *most* appreciated in the CR heat. Pool was definately the best part. It is 3 ft.+ deep at the shallow end so if you have small children, it might be an issue. Wonderful for 7-8 yo kids/adults and super warm. Sloths, toucans, etc. visited the pool, making it extra special. Pete met us at the front gate when we arrived, showed us all we needed. Itza made all tour arrangements, which was fantastic. After morning tours, returned to house around 2:00 and had PB sandwiches by the pool and kids swam for hours. Kids were happy so we were happy. Very, very enjoyable.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I arrived at Pete's place with 5 others, a mixture of friends and relatives. The driver that Itza arranged to pick us up at the airport in San Jose was very accommodating and stopped along the way at different points of interest. We even stopped at a fruit stand and bought pineapple, mangos, and watermelon. The vendor showed us the fruit of the cashew tree which we sampled. Definitely an aquired taste. He also stopped at a large super market so we could get supplies.
Pete's place was perfect for our group. We enjoyed our coffe every morning on the deck overlooking the mountains. The pool was delightful. The place was clean thanks to Alicia who came by every other day. Itza arranged our tours for us and they were the best. The house was very central to everything we needed. The bus stop was 5 minutes away and we used it often. Fifty cents got you to where ever you wanted to go and it came frequently. The small convenience store was also within a short walking distance and the ATM just beyond that. We found a wonderful restaurant across the street that we liked so much we ate there twice. All in all it was a wonderful experience. Thank-you Pete and Itza for making our vacation a wonderful experience.

THANKS PETE, ITZA, AND ALICIA!!!

  • 5 of 5
Me, my two sisters, mom, and two aunts (a girl's vacation) spent 4 wonderful nights and 5 days at Pete's Place. We had an amazing time! Pete's place is large, extremely comfortable, very clean, and in an amazing location (between Quepos and Manuel Antonio, in walking distance to the supermarket and many excellent restaurants). The space was perfect for our group and we were very excited to have air conditioning in all rooms and HOT WATER. We enjoyed waking up and sitting on the side deck with our coffee (from Cafe Milagro) and fresh fruit (definitely buy some from some of the vendors off the road on the way to Quepos/Manuel Antonio). The view from the side deck is breathtaking with the view of the mountains. The kitchen and living space are very comfortable. We enjoyed cooking our own food, making blended drinks, and sitting on the decks in the afternoon and evenings. The pool is absolutely amazing!!!! We saw numerous monkeys and Toucans while sunning by the pool. Itza was amazing at setting up our canopy safari tour (so fun) and reserving chairs for us at the less rowdy end of the public beach. She also told us the best days/times to go to the National Park in Manuel Antonion where we also saw a TON of monkeys. She was also very helpful in telling us where to eat and how much to offer taxi drivers, etc. Pete and Itza gave us our privacy but were so accomodating when we had questions. The dogs (Max, Moose, and Sasha) were very friendly and we enjoyed lounging with them on the decks. Pete also has a new grill on the side deck. We didn't use it but it looks like it would have been great to grill some fish or steaks on. Alicia (the housekeeper) came to clean while we were there and she did an amazing job. She left fresh flowers after cleaning and stayed out of our way while getting everything done. She was so sweet. We absolutely will be back to Quepos/Manuel Antonion and would love to stay at Pete's Place again.

5 NIGHT STAY BY THE MACFARLANE'S (FAMILY OF 5)

5 Night stay by the Macfarlane's (family of 5)
  • 4 of 5
Spent three weeks in Costa Rica and our 5 night stay at Pete's place was certainly enjoyable.

The accommodation certainly met our expectations and for a family of five was great - have a separate parent's room and bathroom certainly helped. The convenience of Pete's place was great perched equally between Quepos and Manuel Antonio and having our own car made whatever we wanted to do easy. The advice of Itza and Pete was invaluable and we certainly partaked in both the sugesstions and the massages !

Our children simply loved the pool and we were able to see monkey, Macaw and Toucan (very lucky) whilst swimming.

The house is not a walk to the beach but transport is available.

The jungle views were certainly better than the water views and we very much enjoyed a quiet drink on the deck overlooking the jungle after the kids were in bed.

Kitchen could have been better equipped but we had sufficient to make do as we cooked most of our meals. The house did advertise a BBQ and being from Australia forms part of our cooking and the BBQ available was not functioning,

Manuel Antonio and Pete's place was a great experience for us and we certainly would consider staying at Pete's place again.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you guys stay at the house, and thank you for the tips about A) The BBQ-- It has been replaced with a brand new large BBQ with side burner as well.
B) All the pots and frying pans in the kitchen have been replaced and the kitchen is now fully up to date.
It is thanks to people like yourselves that make us love this business, meeting people and families, and seeing their joy at seeing a monkey or a toucan and more.
Thank you so much for visiting us, and we hope to see you all again some day.
We hope your continuing vacation is going well.
Thanks for the helpful suggestions, without client feed back ( good and bad) we would not be aware of waht needs fixing or up grading.
Cheers Peter @ Itza
