About Nancy Dunlap

Our names are Nancy and Steve Dunlap and we currently live in TN, near Chattanooga. My husband and I built Villa la Vista in 1997 after falling in love with Costa Rica while vacationing there. We especially loved Manuel Antonio and knew that when we retired we would love to spend the Winter months looking out over the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean. Our dream has finally come true (we retired in 2010) and we now spend as much time as possible enjoying our property. We hope that you will also enjoy this beautiful, friendly country and will want to return again and again. Pura Vida!

Nancy Dunlap purchased this villa in 1998

Why Nancy Dunlap chose Manuel Antonio

We chose Manuel Antonio due to its natural beauty. We also love wildlife and the exotic animals and birds that can be seen in this area are a wildlife lovers dream come true.

What makes this villa unique

If you want an escape from the everyday, consider our Manuel Antonio vacation rental in Costa Rica and experience a little slice of paradise. Manuel Antonio travel offers visitors world-class beaches and magnificent views from La Vista of magnificent sunsets with Cathedral Point as a backdrop. From this Manuel Antonio vacation rental, you can explore all the charm of Costa Rica with scuba diving in the crystal waters, rafting down the wilds of the Naranjo River, or hiking in the Manuel Antonio National Park. 24 of the 27 major adventure activities offered in Costa Rica are available in Manuel Antonio so there is little need to waste your vacation time traveling to and from other areas.

As you explore Manuel Antonio, take in the amazing combination of lush vegetation and spectacular scenery. This Manuel Antonio vacation rental gives you access to a part of the world few people get to see. Known for its exoticness, Manuel Antonio houses a myriad of interesting creatures including sloths, iguanas, raccoons, white-faced and howler monkeys, and the unique squirrel monkey -- all frequently visit the area around La Vista. Although the location offers a glimpse into the majesty of the rainforest, Manuel Antonio travel also allows vacationers to enjoy exquisite cuisine in many nearby restaurants like Barba Roja for seafood (within walking distance), Marlintinis for fine dining, or El Avión for the atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi there! We just spent a few days at Villa La Vista and wanted to say a big THANK YOU for having us stay there! We loved it so much! It was so well supplied with towels, kitchen appliances and dishes, books and even games... And we LOVE Apples to apples so imagine our delight when we saw you had it for us to enjoy! The view was breathtaking, we spent most of our time just sitting on the balcony in awe. We will definitely recommend this place and hope to return!

Villa Exceptional

  • 5 of 5
This was my second visit to Quepos. The first time I stayed in a hotel/condo environment. Upon my arrival to Villa La Vista, I realized what an improvement to my previous trip. The breath taking views from the balcony of the beaches and park at Manuel Antonio were spectacular!
The house is situated on a dramatic hillside overlooking the ocean below. The local animal population, sloths, monkeys and even crabs, visited us. The floor plan is open and full of light. The house is well maintained and in very clean condition. The amenities of a laundry and full kitchen, internet, cable TV and much more make this vacation destination a must to book. Plus, the property manager, Ron, was very helpful with booking activities, local information on restaurants and much more. I was tired of hotels and crowds, this house was paradise. If you enjoy action, there is hiking through the National Park, jet skis, horseback riding on the beach and ATV or if you just want to relax and read a book, this house is perfect. I am planning my next vacation for 2011 and want to bring my grown children who will love this house.

Monkeys, Sloths, and Toucans! Oh, my!

  • 5 of 5
Rememeber the carefree summer days of childhood that started with excitement and ended with pure, contented exhaustion while longing for the sweetness of new adventure waiting on the morrow? That's what Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio, and the lovely La Villa Vista offer.

Spend your days lounging in the gorgeous, mosaic pool while the monkeys scamper about the tree tops and patio rails, squeal with joy and make mad dashes for the porch as the resident sloths perform like slow motion trapeze artists, and marvel at the toucans calling back and forth in lyrical squawks. The view is nothing short of spectacular, and the power of the surf can be heard throughout the day.

High ceilings, gorgeous wood finishes, and local art work adorn the two story, two bed, two bath home. You have all the amenities to cook a fabulous meal with all the local fruits and veggies. And if you ask sweetly, you might be able to convince the housekeeper to cook you an authentic meal from which you will weep at the perfection of the perfectly blended flavors.

Enjoy morning jaunts down to the beach, colorful local shops in downtown Quepos, and various magical tours throughout the area with the help of the fabulous concierge, Sabrina Segal. You could not ask for someone to better take care of you and yours on this trip of a lifetime. From greeting you on your arrival at the villa to recommending her favorite shops to setting up anything and everything you could want to do or need delivered, Sabrina is your gal.

Take the affordable opportunity to create a lifetime of memories, make new friends, renew your spirit, and refresh your soul. You won't want to leave, and you'll take Pura Vida back home with you.

Dream vacation destination perfection!

  • 5 of 5
We booked the villa for a birthday destination and had all the information needed to prepare for the trip. Nancy and Steve are great at answering any questions not already listed on their FAQ pages. Sabrina, the concierge with CRneeds, was superb! She arranged our pick up from the airport and was in constant communication via email after the reservation was made.
She met us at Villa ls Vista and gave us the tour of the two bedroom spacious home. She was very thorough and answered any questions we had. She was not rushed and was very pleasant as she explained about the villa, life in Costa Rica, as she showed us around the villa situated above the ocean with spectacular views from both the downstairs and upstairs balcony. The villa itself is Pura
Vida! If you don't know what that means, come to Costa Rica and experience it. Tile floors throughout, rich native wood furniture, spacious bathrooms and any amenity you would need for your stay is provided. The pool gives you cool relaxation among the tropical flowers and towering ficus.
Villa la Vista is very secure and private. We felt safe with the extra security measures the owners have installed. They have also made sure you feel like Villa la Vista is your home in paradise. Most everything from artwork to needful things can be found locally in the shops. I fell in love with the wooden coaster set and easily found one of my own for very little cost. Feel free to buy local made and more than likely you will see them making it for you on the spot!
The walk to the beach is fine walking down but walking back up is moderate to difficult. Take your time, take rest stops at your own pace and wear shoes suitable for steep gravel/muddy terrain. There is plenty of shade, sand, sun, and surf once you get to the beach.
House and grounds keepers are wonderful and keep the villa in pristine shape for you. Ask Sabrina and you might just get a home cooked Tico meal if you would like. She can recommend anything of your liking and arrange any tour you or your family might enjoy.
There is WiFi provided at Villa la Vista, games, books, and TV/cable to occupy if you are indoors during a storm (we stayed during the start of rainy season and it rained/stormed every day but the sun did share the sky for most of the day) but don't let those amenities keep you from the Costa Rican experience.
Book your Pura Vida vacation today!

Great stay in Manuel Antonio

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful!

We stayed at Manuel Antonio in March 2013 & loved every bit of it!

We booked the 1BR apartment for arrival in Costa Rica prior to our wedding, but just before we arrived Nancy informed us that the Villa was not booked & upgraded us to the Villa as a wedding gift.

We arrived in the evening which made the road to the property a bit hard to find, but the town is so small that you can only turn around so many times before you find it. Tom, the host, was incredibly helpful. He gave us great info that was not your standard tourist info, but definitely geared toward us – who to deal with, what to avoid. The power went out once or twice due to nearby construction (& at no fault of the property) & he came over to fix it right away.

The views were great & the decks a great place to gear up for the day. The pool was a welcome respite after a day of hiking in the national park. Everything you need is already in the villa. There are plenty of restaurants nearby & a good grocery store. We did decide to drive to the town & the beach because the property is on a hill that would take a bit of time to hike otherwise. But the drive is less than 5 minutes each way.

I would definitely recommend this property!

Best vacation of my life

  • 5 of 5
It is difficult to know where to begin. The house is cozy and relaxing. The view is so beautiful it is impossible to put into words. The pictures do not do it justice. The location is also perfect. One of the most spectacular beaches on earth is a short (but steep) walk from the house. Fantastic dining to suit any budget and unforgettable sightseeing is just a short trip from the house, depending on your fitness a lot is within walking distance.

Costa Rica itself is also amazing. The wonderful people, the delicious food, and the enchanting countryside beg you to stay forever. Aiding in your exploration the house has provided you with a book of activities which the property manager is happy to schedule for you. The activities usually provide a meal and transportation as well so you have nothing to worry about. We chose to do the 10 in 1 Adventure as well as the ATV tour. If you are the more active type I highly recommend both. I could go on forever about all that we saw and did while visiting.

The best advice I can give is to stop reading right now and book the trip. It will change your life and that is no exaggeration.

Relaxing at La Villa

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the one bedroom apartment of Villa la Vista was very comfortable. The air conditioner kept the apartment at a perfect temperature to escape the heat and for sleeping. Every morning we enjoyed our coffee on the balcony looking out over the ocean and lush foliage. A sloth stayed in the tree right in front of our balcony. We watched him slowly work his way down the tree trunk - it took over an hour!!
Most important was the help from Sabrina. Without her we would not have packed our vacation full of adventure: deep sea fishing, snorkeling, zip line and places to eat. When we called her she responded to make our stay relaxing.
The beach is a short walk down hill but some how a longer walk up hill:) Wish we had more time at the beach but there is so much to do and see in Manual Antonio area.
I have already recommended La Villa to a friend and continue to do so.
