Our family lived in this house from 2003-2011. Once we reached the empty nest stage, we relocated to the US to be closer to family and started vacation rentals in our house. Yet, we still enjoy family vacations there.
This is a home with wonderful family memories, children growing into adults, holidays, and visits with many family friends and extended family including grandparents.
We hope your family and friends, whoever you vacation with, make many great memories in our home as well.
Camille Banham purchased this villa in 2003
The attractions of the Manuel Antonio area combine almost everything a tourist comes to Costa Rica for. There are gorgeous beaches, lots of wildlife varieties, and all water sports and activities. Inland are mountains, waterfalls, and rivers. A wide variety of activities is available to take these in such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding, ATV tours, Canopy Tours, hiking and more. It's all here in this one location.
We love being able to walk to a choice of several first class restaurants, or to the store or the bank. A car is not needed.
Besides our location and amazing views, this is the most sustainable vacation rental in Manuel Antonio. We've installed solar panels, solar water heating, natural clothes drying and natural evaporative cooling features to assist the air conditioning. This allows for a luxurious and comfortable vacation experience in the topics while keeping costs down and caring for the environment.
Nosotros expresamos nuestra gratidud suficiente. Tuvimos el tiempo de nuestras vidas. Esta camara es increcible y estamos agradecidos a han experimentado su belleza.
Nuestros corazones estan para siempre en los arboles con los monos. Muchas gracias deo nuevo. Pura Vida a nuestro amigo.
The Canopy Suite at the Mirador Magnifico was a beautiful place to stay. The room was comfortable and climate controlled, the private terrace had a magnificent view and the outdoor kitchen down a few steps was fully equipped. The property was a short walk up the hill to a store, buses, cafes and coffee shops, and a half hour to Manuel Antonio and Quepos.
The property manager, Alberto, was more than helpful and pleasant and really made our stay enjoyable and fun, and in fact spoiled us by making things so easy. Being woken by the howler monkeys and visited by the capuchin monkeys was really the highlight of our stay. The area is beautiful with many activities for the adventurous and not so adventurous.
We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an awesome place to stay in a truly magical area.
Our family of 4 spent 10 days in this magical location. The accommodation was ideal for our family, we loved the outdoor areas, the pool, and the daily visits from birds and monkeys. Alberto was a great support, showing us around the local area and organising tours. He was always available when needed, but never intrusive. The property is so well located, offering great views of Manuel Antonio beach and the national park, and easy access to the beach and to Quepos on public transport. It was an easy walk to restaurants and grocery stores from the apartment. Thank you to Cindy for making the whole process of booking so easy. Your support helped make our holiday more relaxing.
Thank you Cindy and Alberto for an amazing week in Manuel Antonio! We absolutely loved the house...so much so that we often times found ourselves just staying in! We loved the out door kitchen and the daily monkey visits! Alberto was great; he was so helpful and a delight to have around the house! We will definitely be back!
The canopy suite was by far worth the extra money! We could not have imagined a more perfect place to spend our vacations. We loved the suite so much we hated to leave everyday to go explore Costa Rica! It was a perfect distance from the business of Manuel Antonio so that you didn't even know you were close to a bustling attraction, but it was an excellent distance from the park so that we could go explore the park and beaches there without much effort. Do not look any farther- this is the BEST place to stay. Plus, the concierge and the owner were super helpful and easy going. Thanks for the excellent stay!!
This property was wonderful, the view is amazing, we saw almost as much wildlife at the house as we did in the park! The walk to the main street is not the best road, but is also a nice walk after a big meal at one of the many amazing restaurants nearby. We did not rent a car and are glad we didn't! We walked and took the bus with an occasional taxi, everything is so accessible. Take your binoculars, they are needed for checking out the birds, monkeys and other animals around the patios. I would highly recommend staying here for a couple or a whole family.
What can I say, Me and my (now) Fiance had the time of our lives!
Alberto, the Property Manger was more than helpful. Me and my Fiance do not speak Spanish well. Anytime we need help with anything, he was no more than a phone call away. He called us cabs, scheduled a lot of the activities we did (Horseback riding, Snorkeling, Travel to San Jose) and was a pleasure to converse with!
The Villa is stunning! The room was plenty big enough for the two of us, and the shower is just beautiful. The best part of the suite though is the terrace. Me and my Fiance spent many hours just enjoying drinks and talking in front of an amazing view. The outdoor kitchen was fun, it had a camping feel to it.
My Fiance went banana's (sorry, I couldn't resist) over the Monkeys! They came several times in the morning and evening. We saw more Monkeys at the Villa then we did on the Jungle tours.
The beach was close, and you can get around by cab or on foot with ease. I even purposed to my Fiance on the beach.
It was well worth the trip. I would recommend this property to anyone who is interested in seeing the Pacific ocean in Costa Rica. Thank you guys for making this special occasion just perfect.

This area is unique in combining everything the traveler expects in Costa Rica with the combination of ocean and jungle.
