About Katharine

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

Why Katharine chose Manuel Antonio

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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!

Trust the Reviews - AWESOME Stay!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

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!

Great vacation exceeding our expectations

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to Katharine and Johns rental home on February 2/2014. The home was as described in their description and offered everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed many days sitting on the deck watching the resident monkeys who visited on most days and heard from Howey the howler monkey daily.The home is in the rainforest and is as close to the Garden of Eden as we could imagine! The beaches in Manual Antonio were awesome and only a 10 minute bus ride from the house.Katharine and John couldn't have been better hosts and were clearly focused on making sure all our needs were met. Thank you both! We have already booked our return trip for next January and cannot wait to spend time with our Daughter and Son In Law in Costa Rica . Thank you again Katharine and John

This Place Has It All!!! From Monkeys to Parrots in Your Backyard! Even A Pool!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the second part of our visit to Costa Rica! What a perfect place to stay. Nestled between Manuel Antonio and Quepos, it provides the perfect middle ground to see it all. We had mulitiple mornings with all kinds of wild life in the backyard. The pool is perfect for cooling down mid-day. We didn't have a car and the bus was easy and convenient. John and Katharine were super helpful and available to answer any questions we had, and even coordinate adventures while there. I would highly highly recommend this for any future travelers!
