Great Place to Stay in Manuel Antonio!

  • 5 of 5
My family--two adults and two teen girls--stayed at Pete's Place for week in June. It was our favorite place of our three week trip. Though the house sits just off the main road, we did not find road noise to be an issue at all. It was easy walking distance to stores, restaurants, and the bus--just a block or two--unlike another place we stayed where "easy walking distance" meant a 20 to 30 minute walk on a steep winding dirt road. You definitely do not need a car here--we did fine with the bus and occasional taxi (taxi stand 1 block away). When you enter the gate it feels like you are in another world. The vegetation is lush and the two decks provide an ocean and mountain view and have hammocks and chairs. The house itself is a little older, but it is very spacious and comfortable, complete with washer/dryer and everything you need to cook. AC and wifi worked great. The absolute best thing about Pete's Place is the huge private pool. It's a short walk through the jungle down some stairs to a beautiful pool set back in the jungle. We saw more wildlife here than on our guided walk in the Curi Canchi Reserve in Monteverde. When getting out of the pool on our first day, I looked up and saw a sloth in the tree right by the pool. He stayed there for most of the week. One day a huge family of squirrel monkeys (about 20 including moms with babies) came passing through. Another day we were visited by white-faced monkeys and there are birds galore. You can even turn on the lights and swim at night. Pete is wonderful--available to answer questions and help out when needed, but gives you plenty of privacy. We loved our stay at Pete's Place and would highly recommend Pete's Place to others. It is certainly a gem in the Manuel Antonio area.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5
When we visit Quepos/Manuel Antonio, we always stay at Pete's Place! We like to "get local" when we visit new places and Pete's Place offers a relaxing alternative to a hotel (It was our second visit to Costa Rica in 3 years). We love the privacy (although Pete and his wonderful dogs live onsite, we never see him) and we love the pool! We never bother to rent a car because public transportation is available within short walking distance and all the great restaurants are within a mile or two of Pete's Place. Each day, we spend the morning at the beach and the afternoon at the pool. Around 5pm, we have drinks and decide where and when to eat dinner.....couldn't be more relaxing. Lastly, his friend Itza, will help arrange ANY activity you wish to try...zipline, massage (she is a professional therapist), boat trips, etc. During this recent trip, we became friends with 3 types of monkeys and a Sloth who called our tree "home", almost every day we were there. What a great place!

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.
