IN THE JUNGLE

  • 5 of 5
We spent a long weekend in Casa Mañana and it was a beautiful experience. Being a Costarican and a nature lover this place was great for a living experience in the forest and yet close to grocery stores and most of the tours including the whale watching (this is one of the best places in the world to see them). Joyce the owner has her home beautifully decorated and she was there to welcome us and even had for us flower arrangements coffee, fruit, and beer. The house is very confortable with a pool that is integrated with the living room, terrace, and kitchen/bar. The bedrooms are big as well as the bathrooms Every thing was very nice. I fully recommend it.

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 6 + our dog, the place is really near the national park Marino Ballena, and Uvita, which is great for going to lunch or dinner not far from the house.
The house is even better than in the photos; it is an open concept house, has really spacious rooms and bathrooms. The decoration of Casa Mañana is unique and wonderful.
The pool is one of the best features of the house; we went to the beach in the mornings and stayed at the pool in the afternoons and evenings.
The property is really dog friendly, we had a great vacation in Casa Mañana, and all the family enjoyed it and didn’t want to leave.
The housekeeper is awesome, she welcomed us at the property, gave us nice suggestions on where to go nearby, and her daughter provided good information about the tours that were available.
The only bad thing is leaving the house, we had excellent vacations. We miss it already.

An absolute dream!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Manana is absolutely like living in a dream! The property is full of gorgeous lush tropical plants and no matter which room you are in, the serenity envelopes you.

If you decide to connect back with the "real world," there's a TV and wifi, but honestly my boyfriend and I spent most of our time lounging in the pool!

The kitchen is fully equipped if you want to stay in and cook a 5 star meal or just whip up some snacks and margaritas to drink by the pool.

The owner Joyce is extremely helpful and friendly, and does everything she can to ensure your stay is fantastic.

Casa Manana is absolutely perfect and you'll honestly never want to leave!

Wonderal villa in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
We had 2 families, four adults and four teenagers stay in this villa and we really loved it. It is very conveniently located in Uvita which is a beautiful, quiet town with load of activities. We especially liked the bedroom configuration, which, because of trundle beds, was very flexible. The owner provided all linens, many of the kitchen condiments, as well as some treats for our arrival. Her daughter also was very helpful in recommending and assisting with booking our activities.

I would highly recommend Casa Manana, which has a beautiful pool and is surrounded by wonderful natural gardens and foliage.

Beautiful house, Nice pool, Great owner

  • 5 of 5
A really nice house. Separate rooms and bathrooms, comfortably fits 8. The integrated social spaces with the pool was great. The owner is really nice. It is dog friendly, we took our dogs and it was perfect. Quick drive from the main road, so its easy to get to know the area.

Lovely house surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5
We loved our weekend gateway at Casa Manana!. The house exceeded our expectations and the nature that surrounds is amazing. There are no other houses next to the property and we never felt concern about privacy nor security. The house is very well kept, clean and we really appreciate the fresh floral arrangements in all the tables and bathrooms, as well the attentiveness of our host, Joyce. Even when we booked the house with a very short notice, she made sure that everything was perfect upon our arrival, including fresh fruit, bread, coffee and milk. Before, during and even after our stay, Joyce kept in touch with us to be certain that we had a pleasant stay. There is an on-site housekeeper, and she helped us twice, providing a strainer for juice and lightning the oven.

The social area of the house (living room, dining, room and kitchen) opens to a refreshing tiled pool and gives the sense of the house as part of the surrounding nature. The three master bedrooms are well spaced, with comfortables beds, big closets, high ceilings and A/C.

After our experience, we have included Casa Manana in our list of places to come back in the future

The exotic colorful tropical gardens surrounding this property are an ongoing passion of mine. Palms, ferns, cordylines, crotons, gingers, torch gingers, shampoo gingers and many verities of ornamental. Including my prized collection of over 40 different heliconias.

Casa Manana is very secluded, surrounded by jungle but only ½ mile off the main highway. White face and howler monkeys frequent the property plus sloths, coatimundis, toucans, a variety of birds and whatever else happens by. And is a short distance from the beach.

Other Activities: Shelling, Wildlife viewing, boating, kayaking
