About Kelly Ernst

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

Why Kelly Ernst chose Manuel Antonio

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.

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.

Wonderful Stay at Casa Bosque Verde

  • 4 of 5

Casa Bosque Verde provided us with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay in Manuel Antonio. It is close to everything, including the Super Joseth market, restaurants, bars, etc. We were able to catch the bus for 315 colones (roughly US $.75 per person) to other place a bit further away (playa Escondido, el avion, salsipuedes, etc.). The buses are very safe and friendly, and pick up is in front of Sanchos to the right at the main road. the gatekeeper, Antonio, and maid, Lucy, were two of the nicest people you will ever meet! We cannot say enough about them. Only one hiccup during the trip. We were told by Alex at the rental management firm that it would be $20 roundtrip from the Quepos airport to the Villa by van to accommodate our party of 5. Upon return, we did not get a van, but rather 2 red taxis, which charged us $16 per cab. This was unexpected and never confirmed with us prior to departure. He is also not very quick to respond to inquiries during the stay. Other than that, everything was simply Pura Vida!

A jungle "gem"

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous week at Casa Bosque Verde. The house and grounds are not only private, but immaculately maintained and far exceeded our expectations. The highlight of our days there were enjoying coffee and breakfast on the deck and watching the animals of the backyard jungle awaken each morning. As others have said, we saw a vast array of animals amidst the banana trees in the backyard - troops of monkeys, agoutis, squirrels, birds, butterflies, and even some very large spiders. (I took the attached pic in the backyard on our last morning.) Another highlight of our stay was that no matter what time of day or night we returned to the villa, Antonio and Mariposa were there to warmly greet us and welcome us "home". Our only regret was that our limited Spanish did not allow us the ability to converse with Antonio as much as we would have liked. Many thanks to Kelly, Antonio and the entire Casa Bosque Verde staff for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable. We look forward to returning soon. Kristy & Benjamin Safford

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!
