We have been living in Manuel Antonio for the last 10+ years and live close by to the rental property. We can offer you the inside local information on where to shop, the best offers, activities, restaurants etc. We look forward to meeting you during your stay!
Katharine purchased this house in 2005
Manuel Antonio as well as being a beautiful area is now my home, and I can be close at hand to manage and look after the property.
We have been living in the Manuel Antonio area for the last 10+ years, and have thoroughly enjoyed living in this property, though have moved on due to our expanding family. One of our favorite things about the house is the open plan concept with the feature window with an etched jungle scene windows. I feel like I am in the jungle, even when I am inside!
I love that there are 2 decks..great for monkey and birth watching or for sharing good food/ cocktails and enjoying the tropical sunshine or a balmy night.
Die Anlage Las Palmas war mir schon von einem früheren Aufenthalt bekannt und so wusste ich, dass die Bungalows hier in einem wunderschönen tropischen Garten stehen, in dem Affen zu den täglichen Besuchern gehören. Auch Leguane, Tukane und sogar Aras lassen sich hier blicken. Sehr schön ist auch der Gemeinschaftspool, den man oft für sich ganz alleine hat. Die Lage ist perfekt, denn bereits nach ein paar Metern erreicht man die Bushaltestelle, von der aus man jede halbe Stunde bequem und günstig in die Stadt oder zum Strand fahren kann - ein Auto ist hier nicht notwendig!
Das Haus ist perfekt für drei Erwachsene, zwei Schlafzimmer und zwei Bäder bieten genügend Platz. Herrlich sind die zwei Terrassen, auf denen es sich zum Beispiel schön frühstücken lässt. Dabei ist die obere perfekt zur Tierbeobachtung, die untere dank Überdachung auch bei tropischen Regenschauern nutzbar. Erfreulich ist, dass sämtliche Fenster und Türen des Erdgeschosses vergittert und die Schlösser stabil sind, außerdem ist ein Safe vorhanden. Sehr gut auch, dass es im Haus ein Telefon gibt, was es einem zum Beispiel ermöglicht, Taxis bis zum Haus zu bestellen. Auch das gut funktionierende WLAN war angenehm. Was die Ausstattung angeht, fehlt es an nichts.
Katharine war schon bei der Buchung sehr hilfsbereit und beantwortete sämtliche Fragen zeitnah. Sie und ihr Mann John sind wundervolle Gastgeber, die sich regelmäßig erkundigen, ob alles in Ordnung ist. Wenn nötig, sind sie leicht zu erreichen, denn sie wohnen gleich nebenan. Sie kennen sich in der Umgebung aus, geben gerne Tipps bezüglich Ausflugsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants etc. und auf Wunsch bieten sie auch einen Wäscheservice.
Alles in allem können wir das Haus nur empfehlen! Wir hatten wir einen fantastischen Aufenthalt und kommen gerne wieder!!!
Lovely responsive hosts... The place was ready and clean upon our arrival; we were greeted in person and oriented well to the house and area. Great quaint spot in Manuel Antonio! Spacious house for family of four with good separation of space. Super outside area with the most wildlife we saw on our stay- in our backyard! Lovely quiet community and grounds. Would definite stay again. perfect accommodations to live more like a local !
This is a very comfortable condo in a good location. Very clean. The owner was extremely helpful and welcoming! The upper bedroom is huge, the second room is very small but doable. We would stay here again!
When searching for a place to stay in Costa Rica, we weren't very familiar with Manuel Antonio, and we weren't sure if this was the area of the country we should visit, but valued the positive reviews left by Katharine's past visitors. We decided a consistently well-reviewed home was most important to us, and I'm SO glad we went with our gut to visit Manuel Antonio and stay at Katharine's tropical home.
There's a reason every visitor has given this place 5 stars. Katharine goes above and beyond as a host. She was very very friendly and even went so far as to go into Quepos to pick up shuttle/bus tickets for my boyfriend and I to get to the airport at the end of our trip because we didn't have a car.
As for the house, it's great size for 2 people, and I would say could fit 3 comfortably. It's very romantic for couples, and at the same time, I could see it being a blast for young kids. The home is in a cluster of cute jungle cabanas/homes with a relaxing communal pool.
The neighborhood monkeys are hilarious! It was almost clockwork, they'd visit in the AM and then we'd hear them scurrying back across the trees around sunset. It was so great to have a glass of wine on the upper patio and just watch them climb/jump/play across the trees and rooftops.
Commuting from Katharine's home was SO easy. You simply walk outside, down a small hill, and the bus stop is right there. You do not need a car, the bus was actually really enjoyable.
Manuel Antonio is such a beautiful town - every restaurant is cliff side and almost everywhere has a view of the water and sunset. If you're debating where to stay in Costa Rica as we had, I highly recommend adding this to your list of places.
Thanks Kath for a wonderful stay!!
nous avons séjournés à 4 personnes pendant 3 nuits et tout été parfait, il n'y a rien à redire, les propriétaires sont charmant et toujour à votre écoute afin de facilité votre séjour, la maison est bien tenue, propre, spacieuse et ne manque de rien elle est tout simplement trés agréable.
Il y a des singes qui passe réguliérement pré de la maison (cara blanca) ce qui en fais une atraction quotidienne.
La piscine privé est également trés apréciable, trés chaude et agréable dans un cadre enchanteur.
Une place de parking est à votre disposition.
Toutes les comoditées sont à proximités, alimentation, restaurant, bar et tout ce dont vous avez besoin.
C'est une maison que je recomande fortement pour tout les atouts positifs quel présente, vraiment un endroit à recommender sans modération ou l'on ce sent vraiment trés bien.
Our stay in the Tropical House was outstanding! It was so quiet and the monkeys visited us daily. Katherine was a fantastic hostess and the house was immaculate and well appointed. We will definitely be back!
