Guestbook comments from the owner
I wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic stay at Casa Bosque Verde and really enjoyed the house. It was so comfortable, beautiful, and accommodating.



Also, I'd like to stress that Antonio was phenomenal!!! He was so sweet, always available, and non-intrusive. We really appreciated having him on the property and enjoyed getting to know him. He made sure to take care of any needs we had and even took the time to practice Spanish with me:) We became good friends by the end of our stay.



We will definitely consider staying again on our next visit to CR.

We are a lawyer and a consultant that have travelled to dozens of countries and fell in love with Costa Rica, its beauty, and especially its people. We chose Manuel Antonio as it is the jewel of Costa Rica's beach areas - next to nature, outdoor adventure, and a wonderful beach, but also filled with quality restaurants and night life.

Kelly Ernst purchased this house in 2007

This vacation home is very spacious, has a modern design, a private pool, and looks out into the jungle. We bought it as a quiet getaway from the bustle of the city. But it is a place close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants, bars, and other amenities.

CASA BOSQUE VERDE WAS PARADISE FOR MY FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful! I stayed here for 10 days with my 3 kids ages 18, 16, and 12. First of all (location, location, location!), we had more wildlife sightings in the back yard and on our walk to the beach than we did anywhere else we went including Manuel Antonio Park! Monkeys and Iguana every day, toucans, other exotic birds, agouti, and of course chickens wandered in and out all the time. We saw a troop of about 25 monkeys and a sloth on the road to the beach. We never wished we had a car. Taxies were cheap and plentiful. Alex kindly set up our transportation to and from the airport and was a great source for local guided trips. We rafted, kayaked, learned to surf, and boogie boarded. The Super Joseth grocery down the road carried many gluten free items, fresh fish and chicken and tremendous fresh produce. It is a very short walk from the house.
We were sad to leave and hope to come back again. Pura Vida!

PARADISE IN COSTA RICA!

  • 5 of 5
The house is stunning (even nicer than the photos) and the property is very well maintained. We stayed for 6 nights and had no complaints. The caretaker, Antonio, is extremely kind and helpful. He keeps to himself and is unobtrusive, but is always there when you need him. The location is a good distance between the town of Quepos and the national park Manuel Antonio. It was very easy to organize transportation to and from the airport (SJO) and for tours and activities. Just one word of advice: the Super Joseth (grocery store) at the end of the block is quite expensive. If possible, do your shopping in Quepos or the surrounding areas.

JUST AMAZING! DONT THINK JUST BOOK THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend, my sister and I (from Canada) along with 2 friends from Greece wanted a nice, clean, and comfortable place to stay for 3 nights in Manuel Antonio. The pictures do not do this place justice; trust me its paradise.
Kelly (the owner) was amazing to deal with, plus Antonio (the house-keeper) was the nicest most processional man I have dealt with.
The place was in the hills near a supermarket (expensive but the only choice) and by many nice restaurants (walking distance or by taxi from either direction).
Restaurants in Manuel Antonio are pricey but good quality.
The beaches are nice (7min taxi ride) and so is the National Park (you are better off to take a $35 taxi to Rain Maker; far better than the National Park)
Anyhoo, have fun and for sure stay at Casa Bosque Verde.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved staying at Casa Bosque Verde! The house had more than enough room & plenty of privacy thru out the property. My favorite place to spend time when at the house was on the deck overlooking the pool & garden listening to all the different birds, & at times watching the monkeys come thru. Every day as we would go out we were warmly greeted by Antonio & his faithful companion, Mariposa! I would most definitely stay at Casa Bosque Verde again!

A DIAMOND IN THE JUNGLE

  • 5 of 5
Pura Vida for real! Just returned from CR and stayed at the wonderful Casa Bosque Verde. It was the perfect location for being immersed in the culture experiencing both the Tico way of life; yet close to all the other action. I speak just a little Tex Mex Spanish and was able to get by just fine; if not English was plentiful. The people are very nice and friendly which made it very easy with communication. This place is excellent and I can not wait to return...Although walking to the main beach or any beach for that matter is very possible I would cab it, the walk was not an easy terrain to navigate and too close to traffic all else great great great!!!!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
When we drive up to Bosque Verde, it is like coming home. It is a wonderful home. Antonio, the guard, always makes us feel like family and yet afords us our privacy. The pool seems to stay clean on its own, and the maids come and go with out us knowing.. we were never disturbed.
It was wonderful to have free WiFI and direct phone line to Canada, which made it very easy for us to keep in touch with family.
We rarely had to use the AC as the home has great natural air flow.
The beds are comfortable and towel luxurious..
Every day we were visited by a troop of monkeys.
The Property is exactly what they discribe, beautiful. private, very clean and well equiped.
It is in a super location, close to grocery stores and restauants.
Our favorite restaurants, were La Cantina, La Wagon and Bamboo Jam. All of which are with in 5 min of the house..
We will rent here again and highly recommend this house to any one wanting comfort and privacy.
Great value for the dollars..
