Overview

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

Small villa, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 comfortably or 3 .....500 sq.ft).

Here is a video link to this villa: http://youtu.be/68uGZZEgAz0

You can see the Pacific Ocean and the Manuel Antonio National Park from every room of this recently remodeled Ocean-view villa.

This villa is approximately 500 sq.ft, which includes a very large balcony, 9ft x 30ft, with a sofa bed, where a third person can sleep on if traveling on a tight budget. Please understand that the balcony is not air-conditioned, it does have a fan, lighting and privacy curtains. It also has breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean, beach, and the Manuel Antonio National Park. Some guests do not mind sleeping under these conditions; others do. So, please use your own judgment when deciding whether to accommodate a third person in this villa. I must say, though, that my 6'4' nephew slept on the balcony sofa bed and preferred it over the air conditioned inside bed.

The villa sleeps 2 people comfortably in a queen size bed. There is also a hammock in the balcony, which is perfect for napping during the day.

There is a FAST complimentary WIRELESS INTERNET, flat screen cable tv, hair dryer, digital safe, 2 ceiling fans, NEW AIR CONDITIONER, cd player, local art, I replaced the small fridge for a FULL SIZE FRIDGE, coffee maker, microwave, large private balcony with seating for 6, shared pool, hot water, hammock, indoor-outdoor shower. Complimentary parking. Beach towels, beddings, bath robes, and bath towels included. If you have any dirty laundry, we'll do it for a small fee payable directly to the maid.

Our condominium complex has its own restaurant on premises (very popular among tourists and locals alike) with a breathtaking view of the Ocean. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner.

We also have a Spa and Yoga studio on adjacent premises.

The condominium complex is located at one on the highest elevations in the area. Without a doubt, It is the best location in all of Manuel Antonio, adjacent to the most expensive hotels in the entire area, including Hotel Mariposa, Issimo suites, and La Plantacion.This particular villa is located at the highest elevation within the condominium complex.

I am the owner and live in Florida. This is my second home. I don't visit it as regularly so I'm renting it now very inexpensively because, even though small, it is still extra income for me. This is not your typical rental unit. it is very well taken care of.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments. I am available via email and phone, 7 days a week.

Please check out the VIDEO LINKS I have posted with this ad.Thank you!

NOTE: I HAVE ANOTHER ONE BEDROOM-ONE BARTHROOM VILLA. IT IS LOCATED RIGHT BELOW THIS VILLA. IT IS LARGER THAN THIS ONE (750SQ.FT) WITH A FULL SIZE KITCHEN; HOWEVER, THE PRICE IS APPROXIMATELY $30/DAY MORE. I HAVE A SEPARATE LISTING FOR THIS LARGER VILLA ON THIS SITE. Thank you!

Note: If you need both villas, I can give you both for $175/day, during low season AND $230 during high season. All taxes and fees included. No hidden fees or security deposit.

About Marc Gomez

I am an attorney from Florida. I bought this property several years ago. I have enjoyed it very much. Currently, I don't stay at the property as often; hence, my decision to rent it and benefit from the extra income.

Marc Gomez purchased this villa in 2004

Why Marc Gomez chose Manuel Antonio

Second home, beach retreat, in touch with local nature and culture

What makes this villa unique

You will feel like you are part of nature. Monkies can be seen and heard from your large balconies. Happy hour on the porch, overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean, is very relaxing. I am a frequent world traveler and have rarely seen a place with as much natural beauty in the world.

Relaxing atmosphere, amazing views, super clean and reasonably priced

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed 6 nights here. It was amazing! We drove from Arenal, where we stayed for 3 nights. I'm so happy that we ended up here!!! This was just a totally different experience. This penthouse is nestled into the rain forest landscape, with a perfect view of the ocean and wildlife. Most days we spent a few hours down on their beautiful beach where we could get beers, rest and relax. There were only a few other families on the beach so it was peaceful and felt very private. We took a trail (part paved part unpaved) down to the beach on two separate days and saw monkeys, iguanas and lizards. We also saw all kinds of wildlife in the jungle right on the hotel's property. The hotel staff as well as the owner were very friendly and easy to deal with. The food at the hotel restaurant was quite good, but you're in walking distance to plenty of other restaurants, so your choices of eating out are very abundant. We toured the Manuel Antonio National Park one morning - walked to it - and had massages one afternoon on the beach. We often sat at the hotel restaurant bar (awesome views from it) and chatted with the restaurant staff and owner, who were all lovely. This restaurant is probably one of the best restaurants in all of Manuel Antonio. Also, you can't go back home without going in for a dip in the pool. It is very clean, picturesque and it has a jungle feel to it. We didn't hear any construction noise as another guest mentioned here. You won't regret staying here. Also, the price is more than reasonable for what you get. The whole place felt relaxed and beautifully maintained. There are white curtains on the porch that makes you feel you are in paradise. We would definitely go back. Thank you Marc for suggesting this wonderful property and for all your gracious support. Your price is more than reasonable given what you get for it.

Amazing View, Good value

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in late March/early April. The view is incredible, to be sure. There is a large patio and decent sized room. Everything was very basic and clean. It's also accessible to the beach (we had no problems walking), and there are good restaurants close by. There is a restaurant across the way, which we were aware of from previous reviews, but I had no idea how close it was. We were not bothered by the noise, but it did not feel private at all. Also, unfortunately, there was construction on a building right next to the apartment. They started working with drills and hammers around 6:30am. Not so great for sleeping in. Also not something the owner has any control over, but we did feel others should be aware- not sure how long they will be working on it.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a 2 night stay in this Condo. Was staying in another condo in the same complex for 5 days prior which was nicer/larger but also more expensive. Can't beat the amazing views and great location of this condo. This is perfect place if you don't want to get a rental car and want to be near beautiful beaches and amazing restaurants and bars. The apartment itself is a little outdated and could. Would be great if there were a couple beach towels and a few others items for guests. The bathroom also could use a bit of a scrub down. Overall I was super happy with the space for the cost! Marc was very responsive and helpful. Will definitely look to stay here again when I come back

Amazing villa with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

After endlessly looking for rentals in Manuel Antonio, we were very lucky to come across Marc’s penthouse villa at Villas El Parque. Villas El Parque is a very nice, clean complex with well-manicured grounds. Marc was very responsive from start to finish and made booking our accommodations very easy, he even gave us suggestions on what to do around the area, where to eat, and tours he thought we would enjoy! Once we arrived at the villa our jaws dropped when we witnessed for ourselves the breathtaking view from the balcony, we were more than satisfied just with just the porch alone. We settled into our very clean and tastefully decorated villa, sunk into the hammock and just took in the beautiful surroundings. The villa is well equipped with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, a set of plates enough for a couple and silverware in case you want to take back meals from all the wonderful restaurants that surround the villa. We really enjoyed the indoor/outdoor shower with a view, and Marc also provided us with robes to lounge around in. The villa is close to the onsite restaurant Café Agua Azul, which you can see from the balcony, but we shut the restaurant view out by closing the curtain, just a tad, and then it felt like the restaurant wasn’t even there! The restaurant chatter did really not bother us and they stop serving fairly early. Make sure to bring your own toiletries, remember it is a rental so they are not provided for you. The villa is centrally located and close to all the famous restaurants in the area, walking distance to everything! Café Agua Azul has spectacular views with amazing fresh fish and natural fruit juices! The pool area was very clean and enjoyable, not too many people hanging around. There is a private trail behind the property that takes you down to the most incredible, private beach near Nature’s Beachfront Aparthotel, which is pristine! The hike along the trail only takes you around 15-20 minutes but it’s a very enjoyable hike down with incredible views. Our favorite breakfast spot was just around the corner from the villa it’s called Emilio’s Café boy the view and the feel of this café is impressive! We were also lucky to be of walking distance to El Avion and La Mariposa, which also have incredible views and food! If you forget anything your in luck there is a store and bank right next door! We are definitely coming back and staying longer, until next time Marc!

Best balcony view around, fast comp. internet, reasonably priced, clean

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful 1-week stay at this villa. Really, we couldn't have asked for anything more - from the beautiful view right from your super sized balcony, to the nice pool, to the complimentary wifi and cold AC - we were more than pleased with everything. You can tell that the owner takes good care of this property. It is very well-kept and some of the things in it you won't find at any other rental for this price. It is not a large condo, but it is much larger than your typical hotel room and, more importantly, it has all of the essentials for 2 people, including a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, LCD TV with satellite connection, a digital safe in the closet, plenty of hangers for your closet, hair dryer in the bathroom. The linen, pillows and mattress were newer, which was very nice to have. We travel quite often and know what's out there, so believe me this is a super deal for what you get. Personally, I loved the tropical vegetation of the rainforest right outside your balcony. We also liked the amazing ocean views also right from your own balcony. If you look out into the rainforest, you will see monkeys, specially in the afternoon hours. We saw a bunch of white-face monkeys as well as titi monkeys. We didn't rent a car so ended up taking $3 taxi ride to Quepos - very easy and there are lots of them around. There is also a bus stop - going in both directions-right out-front. It goes by every 30 minutes and every 15 minutes during lunch hours. It is centrally located so you don't need a car. You can walk pretty much everywhere. In the afternoons, we walked to the local super market, which was right next door and we bought fresh vegetables and fish. The super market is small but you can find pretty much anything you can think of. That was very nice, indeed. If you are booking a tour, you have many to choose from, all of which can be planned for once you check-in at the on-site rental office. All tours will get picked up and dropped off right outside your condo. The beach was a pleasant 20 minute walk. If you don't like to walk, you can pick up the bus right outside the property and you'll be at the beach and the Manuel Antonio National Park in less than 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is interested in the conveniences of staying in a condo versus a hotel, at a great reasonable rate, with a million dollar view, and an owner who really makes sure you have a pleasant stay.

5 star view

  • 3 of 5

My wife and visited here, after taking an 8 day bus tour through Costa Rica on Caravan (excellent all inclusive 4 Star Hotels--ask for Marta tour guide). As I said this was a 5 star view on top of the ridge. We stayed in unit top 8. Unfortunately this was a 1 star, no furniture but a queen bed, hammock, and a rocking chair. Marc the owner also has the unit below 8-down--with furniture and a kitchen--same great view, wish we had this unit for only $20 more. This forced us to eat out every meal, with good restaurants nearby to walk to e.g. Aqua Azule--next door, Pizza and Billfish bar across the street, Cafe Millagro and Emillio Cafe & Cantina Salsipuedes for breakfast & dessert. Coconuts gave us a free coffee cup--tell them the Seattle couple recommended them. Lots of stair's to the pool--clean, but needs painting. As for attractions MA--you could rent a guide $40--animals are hard to see on your own, but they are far and few between--liked the guides at Caravan's tours better.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Steven. Addressing your comments about not having any furniture. In addition to the furniture you listed, there is also a coffee table on the balcony and a 5-person bench also on the balcony. There is also a night stand by the bed, where the CD player is. The video and pictures on my VRBO ad accurately show the additional furniture that I am referring to. I honestly think there is more than enough furniture here for 4 people, even though this is a 2-person villa. I am sorry if you thought you needed more furniture. I have been renting this villa for years and no one has ever approached me with this type of comment. As far as not having a full size kitchen goes, yes, this is a smaller villa with a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, and toaster. The larger villa has a full size kitchen for $30 (not $20) dollars more per day. Once again, thank you for your review and I hope that you had a great time in Manuel Antonio.
