QUIET, SECLUDED HOME W/ GREAT VIEWS OF THE OCEAN AND MOUNTAINS

Manuel Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Casa Sophia is a hidden jewel in Manuel Antonio. Located in a quiet, secluded neighborhood on the eastern side of Manuel Antonio, it offers privacy while still being just a short 10-minute drive from the beach, national park, and amenities. The home could not have a better layout: Every room in the home--from the kitchen to the master jacuzzi--has a gorgeous vista of the emerald Talamanca mountains spilling into the distant sea... The view is framed by the rainforest canopy--and nearly daily one can sit back and try to identify the three different local types of monkeys playing in the trees:

The congos are easy--they're the ones who wake you up in the morning.

The titis are easy--they're the ones who steal your bananas.

The white-faced monkeys are easy--they have... white faces.

When the day is done, and the sun has gone down, it's time to pop the cork on a Chardonnay and sit out on the covered terrace to watch the fading colors in the clouds...

What a beautiful property! In addition to the endemic trees and ornamental plants on the property, thee is a veritable orchard of tropical fruits: cashew, avocado, star fruit, sour guava, soursop, guava, medlar, papaya, banana, plantain, water apple, coffee, cacao, mango, orange, lime, tangerine, grape fruit, sweet lime, tangarine lime, small lime, coconut, and pineapple!

Talk about a relaxing home....

This is such a lovely home. The kitchen is roomy and provided everything we needed. A short walk to the grocery store is just that, a short walk. The mattresses in all bedrooms were not old at all. The beds you could tell were newer mattresses and very comfortable. Just everything about the home was nice, open and comforting. The pictures of the home and views are very accurate. The deck has a nice view of the ocean at a distance and the forest just below. Every day and I do mean every day, monkey were visiting. We had Tiki and White Face monkeys. One monkey even watched my son swim in the pool as it curiously watched while sitting on the rail. Also, I do want to point out something very important: my son came down with two very bad ear infections. Kent and Estela were so very helpful with referring me to a Dr. I can't began to thank you enough for the help you provided and driving us there. Thank you so very much. My son was in so much pain and the Dr. was able to see us late in the evening and we would not have been able to fly out had it not been for your help. Now, would I stay here again, absolutely. This was our second visit to Costa Rica and I would trust Kent and Estela with another vacation rental. They really go above and beyond.

We loved our stay at Casa Sophia, at he end of an exhausting day on our various jungle excursions we loved heading back home (that is how Casa Sophia felt to us) and relaxing. Everything about the house is of superior quality, and that included our lovely hosts Kent and Estella.

A great place to base yourself if you are looking for a place to stay in Manuel Antonio!

My wife and I stayed at Casa Sophia for a weekend in April 2013. The home is beautiful, comfortable, very cozy, well equipped and close to the National Park, restaurants and the beach. The house is surrounded by a vast natural life; you can see monkeys and many kind of birds, just in the deck! The views are impressive, principally from the master bedroom and bathroom, which has an incredible and very romantic Jacuzzi!

Casa Sophia not ideal for older couple

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Casa Sophia for 8 nights from February 27, 2013. The house was very clean and well-appointed and we did see monkeys and a few birds right outside our windows! But we were surprised to find Casa Sophia does not have a second means of egress (emergency exit), especially when there were a few small earthquakes! We were also surprised that such an elaborate home had so many sharp edges and the pool was surrounded by bumpy stone that was uncomfortable to walk on while barefoot! There were a number of other odd things about the place: The kitchen cabinets were too high to be useful - we had to leave dishes and glasses out on the counter. The kitchen stools and counter were also too high to be useful. The sheets on the king sized bed in the master bedroom did not stay on and became wrinkled and loose, becoming quite uncomfortable. There was no light in the laundry room. The on-demand hot water heater for the master bath provided hot water inconsistently. The kitchen sink faucet leaked excessively. I brought all of these things to the attention fo the property manager. The road to and from the house is extremely deteriorated but driveable. All in all, the location is a good one for driving to Manuel Antonio park, beaches and resorts in the area but if I were to go again I would consider staying in a resort with beach access!
Owner's Response: Hi--I'm Kent, the property manager. I'm sorry that these clients didn't find everything to their satisfaction, but I also feel obliged to clarify a few things. Firstly--earthquakes! While there are occasional tremors here, you can check with USGS--there was one small tremor while they were here. There are indeed some tall cabinets and stools in the home, but not to a prohibitive degree. There is a light in the laundry room. The hot water and kitchen sink have been fixed. The half-mile of road out to the home is indeed bumpy, and is occasionally smoothed out by the municpality.

In terms of whether or not the home is suitable for elderly--I suppose it all depends on your perspective. My handicapped, elderly mother very much enjoyed her stay in March, and had no complaints!

Lastly--there are only a couple of resorts in Manuel Antonio with beach access, starting at $450 per night--more than twice the per-room night at Casa Sophia!

Fantastic Huge Jacuzzi!

  • Submitted: Jul 12, 2012

Words can really not describe the stunning beauty of Costa ica and our stay in Casa Sophia! This is a one of a kind experience. There is not a single thing that can be improved. This part of Costa Rica is stunning and a truly special place. The views, the animals, and the stunning sunrises across Manuel Antonio from the bedroom window... So much to do and so close by. What a fantastic huge Jacuzzi!
