Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description
Three (3) Suites, Three (4) Baths. Sleeps 10-12. Large Pool. Air conditioned.
Stepping through grand, teakwood gates into her cozy, cool lanai, you immediately know you made the perfect choice for your Tropical Getaway. Feeling her ocean breezes, hearing the trickle of her soothing fountain and seeing her lush garden area . . . you may just decide you’d be content to spend your vacation right there on her veranda, and you're not even inside yet. You have only begun the Villas del Sol Experience.
Conceived by renown Costa Rican architects specifically for her owner as his personal home, you will find a myriad of special touches that sets Villas del Sol above even the most popular villas in Costa Rica. Hand-carved doors lead you onto every floor, distinctive chandeliers light your way, colorful ornaments and paintings from all over the globe, let you know you are in a “home”, not just a vacation house.
Crossing to the “Ocean Side” of Villas del Sol, three large, covered verandas overlook her pristine pool and wrap the villa. Certainly these views will make you feel you can soar out over the Pacific. No doubt it’s a good idea to fight that initial impulse to fly, but you can at least reach out to try to touch the sea . . . it’s just that close. Every morning (assuming you can get all those pesky monkeys from your line of vision) your view is spectacular.
Above this sea-side tower of balconies, if you can tolerate the best view in all Costa Rica: climb the stairway to Villas del Sol’s famous perch, legendary throughout all Manuel Antonio. (The principal photograph you see here on her profile was taken from The Perch). For meditation and yoga, or, with its two cozy chaise lounges that make it ideal for reading, this nest will make you feel you are truly On Top of The World.
Conveniently, Villas del Sol is the only luxury villa in town whose doors open to the Main Avenue. In literally five seconds, you are meeting your tour transfer or driving your car. If you've visited Manuel Antonio, you know just how vital location is for having the ideal holiday; if not, you will soon discover that Villas del Sol is quite the elite address. All the prominent restaurants you have read about on Trip Advisor: only steps away. When locals are offering directions to drivers, 'the big perch at Villas del Sol' is always their favorite landmark. Yet because Villas del Sol’s architects calculated for this unique location, inside the villa is perfectly quiet. After you arrive, you will see just how fortunate you are.
Monkeys in the bamboo, toucans in the palms, iguanas having coffee by the pool . . . our animals come to you at Villas del Sol. Of course you will love the National Park Beaches, but you really won’t need any park to see Costa Rica's wildlife: just look out your window.
The epic Master Suite encompasses the entire 4th floor. Jetted bath, 42” HDTV (with Netflix, of course), staggering views, enormous king bed, private lounging area, breakfast table on the balcony, and utter privacy are all your rewards if you can just keep the secret. Of course, your Friends in the Jungle and Palm Suites will not feel at all slighted. Luxurious queen beds and linens, huge closets, private living area, and reserved terrace with lounges are all prizes for these Guests. Everything is, of course, air-conditioned.
THE POOL SUITE
For additional space when your family is a little larger, Villas del Sol has just remodeled its Pool Suite. With its separate entrance, offering more privacy, this special first floor 'cottage' opens right onto the pool. It boasts its own suite with queen bed and private bath, living room, kitchenette and even its own walk-in closet. There's also another convertible sofa that makes it ideal for up to four additional guests. It's great for teenagers or the extra couple that wants a little additional seclusion. For $100/night, this cozy addition make Villas del Sol great for up to ten or 12. (If you don't choose it, the Pool Suite will always be vacant; it's never offered independently).
Your most unexpected, and perhaps most valued assets are Donald (your host) and Nathan (your personal concierge). They live in a separate accommodation at Villas del Sol, and, although completely removed, they are available in moments. Prior to your arrival, through email and/or telephone calls, Donald & Nathan customize all your wishes: transportation, restaurant reservations, tour and excursion bookings. All your vacation planning is included. Once you're here, Nathan is available 24-hours a day to implement your plans. If however, you just want to relax, opting to spend your time at the beach and pool, he is equally capable simply to provide your sunscreen and towels.
At Villas del Sol, whether it’s tranquil or thrilling: Your preference is our pleasure. White Wine or White Water Rafting; Sun Tanning or Salsa Dancing; Sailing or Sport Fishing . . . it’s our mission to customize the perfect Costa Rica Experience for you and your Family.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Villas del Sol. So much so, that I came back 3 months after my first visit. Tranquil home with beautiful views from every room. Walking distance to some of the best restaurants and nightlife in town. The service provided by Donald's team was impeccable. From delicious home-cooked meals to booking fun and interesting activities - they do it all.
