Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

Perfect for large groups looking for privacy, modern conveniences, total comfort

At Villa Grande, it’s all about the size. It is undeniably “GRAND”.

You will almost feel like you need a map to get around this immense, comfortable villa tucked away at the end of the most private road in all Manuel Antonio. Sundecks & Stairways; Porticos & Pools; Twists & Turns; Verandas & Views. It may take you all week to learn your way around . . .but you won’t mind at all being mystified, because around every bend is another opportunity to find something brand new and exciting on this tropical estate.

Offering 5 thousand square feet of girth; 5 enormous suites; 5 floors of living space; and seemingly 5 hundred places to explore . . .you will surely have a vacation that is 5 times better than any you’ve had before. With the capacity to sleep 14 Friends and Family, Villa Grande can accommodate the largest of gatherings.

Extended Family Vacation? Old-time Friends’ Trip? Ticos Week at “The Beach”? Or a Perfect Place for college Friends to escape? Villa Grande offers the breathing space that is ideal for every large group.

YOUR PANORAMA

Relaxing in your living room, dining on your fifth floor veranda, having coffee outside your private suite or enjoying cocktails at your swimming pool, The Sea is your backdrop. Peering out over the rainforest that is Villa Grande’s garden, with Costa Rican mountain peaks to the East, you’ll feel like you can reach out and touch The Pacific.

YOUR PRIVACY

Rambling almost a kilometer off the main road through a unique native community, full of local color, you immediately know you are in for a true Costa Rica Experience. (And you may just think you took a wrong turn along the way). Then, when the tower of Villa Grande appears on the right, you are certain you made the right choice for your family and friends. There are no neighbors for you to worry about. There are no neighbors who have to worry about you. There are no noise concerns: made or received. Villa Grande is ideally private, private . . . private.

YOUR POOL

Arguably the largest in all Manuel Antonio, Villa Grande’s pool offers 20 thousand gallons of fun. With its swim-up bar at the barbecue, waterfall feature, (very) shallow end for the kids, and tons of deck space to acquire a tropical tan that will shame all your friends back home . . . . your vacation “lake” will make it a challenge to venture to the beach. After you fire up the grill, spread the pool towels on the recliners, and take the tropical plunge, all you will have to “worry” about is which number sunscreen to apply today.

YOUR PENTHOUSE

If you are reading this, you are likely the “unlucky” Planner of your group’s vacation. Shhhhhhh! The perfect bonus is that you don’t have to tell anyone about The Penthouse, and it can be your secret reward. The best Pacific Views in the entire villa, a lush King size bed, an extra large slate-stone bath with double massage showerheads, and a private sundeck that is “miles away” from the rest of your group. There’s a veranda that’s perfect for sunset cocktails, a dining area, gas grill and Pacific Views that will make you run for your camera. The Penthouse consumes the entire fifth floor . . . like a home within a home.

YOUR PRICE

Your value at Villa Grande far exceeds your price. The rates you find here (below) are calculated in an effort to keep Villa Grande full every week, offering you a perfect opportunity to have a Tropical Vacation at a fraction of the cost of a hotel of comparable worth. Even at her High Season rate, when Villa Grande is at her maximum capacity, the cost for each guest is well under $40/night. (Green Season is $30). For the amenities and services she offers, it’s a challenge to find a better value anywhere in Costa Rica

YOUR PLANNING

Send an inquiry now, and Villa Grande’s personalized planning service begins instantaneously. Donald, your host and vacation planner, will respond by answering any questions you may have. Including your number in your inquiry form almost assures a telephone response as well. Villa Grande believes that speaking with “a real person” inspires confidence in your decision to be our guest. Donald and Nathan (your Personal Concierge) plan, manage and host your week . . .and even welcome you personally at Villa Grande’s gate when you arrive. (We won’t stand for your just “picking up the keys”). Donald & Nathan are perhaps Villa Grande’s most valued distinction from other villas. Prior to your arrival, through email and/or telephone, they tailor all your wishes: transportation, restaurant reservations, tour and excursion bookings. Once you are here, living only three minutes away, they are available 24 hours a day to implement your plan. And if your plan is “to have no plan”, they are happy simply to direct you to the blender and let you relax by Villa Grande’s vast pool.

YOUR PRIZE?

Nathan has created a presentation of “Insider Tips” about traveling to Costa Rica. It includes essential material about: exchanging currency, using your cell phone, drinking the water and paying the Costa Rican departure tax. These pieces of valuable information have been compiled after years assisting his Guests as they organize their vacations. With no obligation, this “peace of mind” is yours for the asking. Send your Inquiry now to receive it.??

So, until we meet at Villa Grande, we wish you Pura Vida: The “Pure Life” of Costa Rica.

Size and Location are the district advantages of Villa Grande. You will find enough capacity for the large families, but still with comfort for each person to have his own space. The location is secluded (~800 yards off Manuel Antonio's main road), so you will not have challenges with traffic noise, loud people on the street or bright lights through your windows. Just the peace and tranquility that makes Villa Grande a 'special find'.

Villa Grande, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

This was a family vacation including our three grown children, their spouses and children - 14 in all. The house was spacious and the number of bedrooms more than adequate for us. We particularly enjoyed the master bedroom on the top floor with its glass enclosed walls and nice views of the area. The property was clean upon our arrival and very well maintained during our stay. Furnishings, though not lavish, were appropriate for the setting. The house is perched on the side of a very steep hillside so access to surrounding grounds is not easily available. The property is accessed by a mile-long, winding rutted road off the main drive of the city. One of the problems we experienced, a minor annoyance, were a sufficient number of keys to access bedrooms and remotes to open the main gate to the property. Special kudos to concierge Dina Tochluk; her efforts to make our stay perfect in every way were truly extraordinary - from arranging car shuttles and rentals to dealing with minor issues surrounding our visit. Manuel Antonio is a great vacation spot with many good restaurants, a very nice beach with waves for surfing and a large number of things to do in the immediate area - a prime consideration to keep our grandchildren (ages 9 - 12) adequately engaged. English is spoken almost everywhere. Last but not least, I was impressed by how very friendly and cordial are the people of Cost Rica.

I would highly recommend this property to stay in if staying in the Quepos and Manuel Antonio area. It is closely located to all points of interest but yet far enough off the beaten path to give you privacy and relaxation. Beautiful views and great facilities. Dina was the best phone call we made. She made our trip what it was with all of her hard work and knowledge of the area. Without her assistance we would have struggled to make all of the connections that we needed to make to have the kind of trip we were looking for. There were ten of us in our party. The house was large enough that we all could have our space if so desired. The price was well worth it, in fact, the other members of my party could not believe how cheap it was for what we got. I will definitely use this facility again if I return with a large party. We were treated like royalty from the minute we got there until the minute we left. It just made our getaway a very memorable and unforgettable trip. The area is an incredible area to visit and I will definitely be back. We toured the national park, went zip-lining, fished for sailfish, took a boat out on the ocean for a sunset meal and dolphin viewing, and went snorkeling. All in all one fantastic trip that could not have been better.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words!! You and your group made my job so fun. Hope to see you all back soon.

This was a great house that I would not hesitate to recommend. It was by far the best place that we stayed at in Costa Rica and just an amazing place in general. It was a couple of miles from the beaches, and a little walk(3/4 mile) from the main road where you could catch a bus, and the road to it was pretty sketchy, but everything else was great. The rooms were spread out over 4 floors, so it would not be great for a family that didn't either all sleep together or one that had young children that still needed to be taken care of at night, but it would be great for a family with teenagers or a great big party of multiple families, as it was huge, spread out and a great place to forget you were in paradise and just stay at the house all day.
I have to say, I was pretty nervous about renting a big house in a foreign country and wasn't too confident that I was going to have a place to put my family when we got there, but Alex, the property manager was fantastic. everything was exactly as he said, the house was cleaned every day by his wife, who was great. It was amazing in that he was more of a concierge than a property manager. I needed a zipline tour, he arranged it. Drs. office visit, done. Great time, great house. Nothing not to like. Pura Vida.

It was an awesome time we spent at Manuel Antonio. We used Vacation Villas as our travel agent and they did an excellent job setting up our transport to and from the international airport, getting our activities lined up and the house was just right for our group with lots of elbow room, Alex helped pointing us in the right directions and setting up our dinner reservations. We also had a chef for our last night and it was an incredible meal we will be coming back next autumn.

Thanks for the great time Vacation Villas
