|Minimum Stay||2 - 5 nights|
Sit in the main living area and watch the wild life through the ceiling to floor screen in glass. With an open floor plan you will see amazing wildlife happening right in front of you. Because this part of the retreat space sits in the Jungle you will see activity of 3 kinds of monkey, sloths, hummingbirds, woodpeckers and other birds and animals and the best part is they can not get into your living space.
Believe it or not you are only a few minute walk from the main road in Manuel Antonio!!
Keep reading, for details on the Villa:
Really the best in Manuel Antonio. The villa is located in the most exclusive, private, residential area in Manuel Antonio. Plus the villa has lots of surrounding property, so you can't see the neighbors! Some of the best restaurants and hotels are located less than a 5 minute walk away. The beach is a 10-15 minute walk. The town of Quepos is 3 miles to the north, and is home to a beautiful new marina.
Partial ocean views as the rainforest comes right up to the floor to ceiling windows. If you don't see monkeys or sloths you probably aren't looking.
The 2,000 square foot, 3 bedroom home is divided into two floors. The materials used are glass, granite, custom ceramic tiles, stucco, stainless steel, and aluminum.
The entry level features a great room with floor to ceiling windows with spectacular views of the treetop canopy, and partial views of the Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio national park. There is a TV, iPod dock, 2 sofas, 6 seat dining area, half bath, a gourmet kitchen with granite, stainless steel , custom cabinets, refrigerator, espresso maker, a restaurant quality oven and 6 burner stove.
Outside there is a large yoga deck that is shared with Spa Uno. Yoga mats are complementary and private classes can be arranged.
The entrance level houses the master suite with king size bed, walk in closet, and en-suite bathroom with shower. The lower level has two bedrooms with queen size beds, one has a covered deck, and they share a bathroom with shower.
Wildlife and Fauna
The wildlife here is abundant. Monkeys are almost daily visitors, and you can count on seeing at least one of the three local species, be it the Titi's, Howlers, or White Faced. Small mammals such as sloth and kinkajoo's, multitudes of butterflies, and exotic birds to thrill an ornithologist are all included at no charge!
The reception staff at Spa Uno will be you concierge during your stay. Not only can they arrange tours, transportation, and in-house spa services, but they are also very knowledgeable of the Manuel Antonio area and can answer any questions you may have. They are onsite everyday from 8a.m. to 8p.m. and will help you with anything you need, from getting a taxi to ordering groceries, they have you covered.
The villa also has two housekeepers who care for the home 6 days a week and will see to all of your cleaning needs, including personal laundry.

My name is Tammy and I am the new owner of this property. I have been coming to Manuel Antonio for 5 years with a vision to open a retreat space for guest to come and enjoy, relax, rejuvenate, and renew. I live on the property in a separate studio unit and am available for your questions, suggestion, and needs. I am also your on site massage therapist trained and certified in the U.S.
I am in the process of converting the property into one unit for a retreat get away where you can custom design your time and activities you want to enjoy without the hassle of planning them.
People literally did not know what a spa was.
Well a lot has changed, but our spa is still going strong and continues to be one of the leaders in Costa Rica.
We build the villa only a few years ago to use when we visit Manuel Antonio. Which because of life is unfortunately not very often.
We hope you love it as much as we do!
Owner/Property Manager purchased this villa in 2014
After spending months traveling all over Costa Rica in search of the perfect location we fell in love with Manuel Antonio. No only does this property offer nature it is perfectly situated in the center of Manuel Antonio giving you convenience to banks, shopping, beach, and a wide verity of activates of your choice.
I love an early morning walk down the dirt road that leads to the north end of the beach. (Great surfing spot) Then stroll down the beach to one of the sea side restaurants for breakfast only a 15 minute walk.
Spa Villa is on the lower level of a duplex off the main highway between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It is quiet, clean and comfortable. While there is no Pacific view, there is a jungle view and we saw lots of birds, a groundhog-looking mammal and one monkey.
Two of the three bedrooms have air conditioning, which you will appreciate. There are quite a few steps getting to the door and down to the lower level bedroom, which wasn't a problem for us, but could be for the elderly or disabled. A grocery store is a ten minute walk up the main road. There are two restaurants/bars just up the hill with unbelievable Pacific views.
We used the pool at the Byblos Hotel, which was very nice.
I would definitely recommend this spacious, beautiful home.
First I would like to say that our time here was very memorable and relaxing, however we were all a little suprised to find some things were not what they said they were. For starters, the Spa is closed down and the property manager has a portable massage table and will come to the villa and give massages. The property manager and her husband were very nice but had only been in Manuel Antonio for 6 weeks and did not know about too many restaurants, but were very helpful in scheduling tours. Second, this place has a TON of steep stairs and would not work for someone who was handicapped or became winded easily. The ad said the beach was a 10-15 min walk, but it really is more like a 40 min walk down hill and an hour walk back. You might see an ocean view from the room if the wind is blowing just right. There is coffee maker but no espresso machine. The seating around the table said it was for 6, but there was only 4 chairs when we arrived. The maid service was nice, and every thing was clean. A huge red ant nest broke out inside, thankfully the maid was there and sprayed it down with bug killer and swept them up. There is also a villa right above ours we were not told about before we arrived and the people that stayed there we loud some nights and we could hear them laughing and yelling. We had a very nice time and Linda, the property manager did a great job in helping us when we asked for it. However, it would have been nice to know that the Spa no longer existed and how many stairs the villa had. The wildlife was nice to see right outside your window everyday, and the geckos that hung out on the walls inside were a nice addition as well.
What a wonderful experience for our family. Very peaceful and comfortable environment sitting within the forest of Manuel Antonio. We were welcomed several mornings by monkeys traveling across the property. It is close enough to restaurants and beaches, but not too crowded. Highly recommended.
I was so enchanted by this country, this location and especially the Spa Uno rental. It far exceeded my expectations. Walking in the home is like walking into a your own private jungle paradise. The windows are from floor to ceiling allowing you to completely soak up and absorb the overgrowth of trees, plants, tropical sounds and best of all the animals. Sloths, monkeys, all types of beautiful birds were all seen daily. The smells of the forrest, the tropical flowers, the ocean, the evening rains, and the comfort of this home cannot not truely be described. Now add the spa and all it has to offer and you are in heaven. The massage was perfection. I traveled here with two other friends. A guy and girl. Our guy friend left early. As single women traveling
we did not at all feel unsafe and Adam the owner was easily assessible and helpful. I have
already planned to stay here again. Location, price, comfort, clean, the spa....could not ask for anything more.
Birding from the living room, monkeys, sloths, and tons of other wildlife come by everyday.
