OCEAN VIEW VILLA, ONE OF THE BEST OCEAN VIEWS IN MANUEL ANTONIO

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom-one bathroom villa overlooking Ocean (sleep 4)

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 750 sq.ft, which includes a very large balcony, 9ft x 30ft, with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean, beach, and the Manuel Antonio National Park. The villa sleeps UP to 4 people if privacy is not an issue. There is a new king size bed and a new small full size sofa bed. The sofa bed is great for one or two children or one adult. Two petite adults might be able to sleep on it but only if traveling on a budget and sleeping is secondary to price.

There is also a hammock in the balcony, which is perfect for napping during the day.

There is a fast complimentary wireless internet, 2 flat screen cable tvs, hair dryer, digital safe, which I will provide you the access code for, 2 ceiling fans, air conditioning, local art, full size kitchen with fridge, coffee maker, microwave, stove, blender, deep fryer, pots and pans, utensils and dishes (serving for 8), large private balcony with seating for 10, shared pool, hot water.

I provide for bath soap and shampoo.

I do not provide for dish detergent; however, there is a super market immediately adjacent to the villa where you can buy dish detergent as well as anything else you might have forgotten to bring.

There are two cupboards which I keep locked. It is here where I store my personal belongings. There is plenty of additional storage for you; including a closet with multiple hangers.

Complimentary secured parking, beach towels, bedding, bath robes, and bath towels are included. If you have any dirty laundry, we'll do it for $10 a large bag payable directly to the maid.

Our condominium complex has its own restaurant on premises. Its name is Agua Azul (very popular among tourists and locals alike) with great viewsof 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!

About Owner/Property Manager

I am an attorney from Florida. I bought this property 8 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.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this villa in 2004

Why Owner/Property Manager 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was an absolutely ideal spot for our second Manuel Antonio experience. Location was perfect: a quick 20-minute walk to a peaceful private beach, 1 block to ATM and rental car, 3 blocks to a local supermarket, and a block away to several great restaurants. Property was spotless and neat when we arrived, complete with plenty of clean towels, paper goods, and various other items like soap and shampoo. Plenty of room for us to unpack and spread out. Ample kitchen area with all appliances; refrigerator was spotless, as was stove and sink. Owner was helpful and friendly. Many monkeys could be seen in the afternoon hours right from our own very large porch. The view of the Ocean was spectacular. The hammock on the porch made for a relaxing afternoon siesta. I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting an ideal location, more than reasonably priced, neat, clean accommodations.

4 nights was too little!

  • 5 of 5
From the beginning Marc responded very fast to my e-mails and gave us a lot of useful information. The 4 nights here were the last part of our 12 day anniversary trip and we did not want to leave. The view was amazing, loved naps in the hammock, we enjoyed making a few meals and eating on the balcony, the restaurant next door was amazing and Byblos was so much fun for drinks. We enjoyed our excursions and then walking down to the beach on the private road everyday and felt the burn on the way up. There were a few ants that got in when we had fresh fruit, but once it was put in the fridge they went away, we also had a few tiny lizards, but that was all part of the experience and we weren't bothered by them! At the end of the trip, we didn't want to leave and would definitely stay at Marc's place again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Sara!!! I am happy to hear that you had a great time at the property. As far as your ants comments is concerned, during this time of the year, little ants seem to want food badly. The inside of the condos is perfect for them; but, as you noticed, if you put your food away, they leave.
Also, the little lizards that you referred to are called geckos. They are all over Costa Rica, stay out of your way, and are very cute. They look like the Geico tv lizard.
Love to have you back anytime. Thank you once again!

Private, perfect view!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect, private spot to begin our trip in Costa Rica. Great info from the owner, very helpful and honest. Spectacular view, could live on the balcony forever. Great restaurants nearby and public transportation. Loved the pool, swam each day. Saw a sloth in the trees each evening. Felt secure and used the safe, although the balcony door could use some type of lock that can't be opened by simply reaching around the wall. Friendly maid, she washed our dirty clothes in less than a couple hours for us and the place was very clean. Only negatives were that we had to leave garbage in the freezer because ants invaded our food in the kitchen the first night. Once we did that, no more ant issues. Also, the tiles stain your feet and socks red. And, we woke up a couple mornings to the neighbor's squeaky bed above our room...but as long as you can laugh about it, it's no big deal.
Overall, would definitely stay here again...great value for the price. Loved the privacy...way better than a hotel.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the 5-star rating!!! It really means a lot to me as I try very hard to accommodate every guest to make sure he/she has a great time while staying at my property.
Your concerns have been addressed:
1. we put a door lock on the balcony door that you can lock from the inside.
2. Ants are always a bit of a problem during raining season throught Costa Rica. As soon as high season arrives (mid-November), the ants are gone until the following year, around June.
3. We are now using a different wax to clean the tiled floors to avoid staining your socks and feet. It is working.
4. Sometimes, lovers like to make love and the condo above yours (the penthouse, which I also own) is the perfect spot for that. This should explain the reason why the bed above your condo was making a squeaky sound. Lol. If it happens again in the future, simply turn the air conditioning unit on at your condo and I can guarantee you that won't hear anything.
Once again, thank you very much for your positive review!!!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our 1st time and stayed in Manuel Antonio for 8 nights. This apartment was fantastic and perfect for us! Marc (the Owner) has completely remodeled it, re-furnished it and decorated it beautifully! It had original vibrant Costa Rican artwork. It also had a full size kitchen, and even a dispenser with shampoo and soap in the shower. There was a digital safe in the walk-in closet, cold A/C, 2 LCD TVs with satellite reception, and complimentary WIFI. In addition, from the large covered terrace with ceiling fan & light (furnished with a hammock, table with six chairs, and four additional wooden chairs and a coffee table) we had an incredible view of the Pacific ocean and the rainforest. There is a nice clean pool at the property with costarican artwork. Maid service is included twice per week and she provides plenty of clean bath & beach towels in between visits. As if that were not enough, this property is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio's main road. It is the most centrally located piece of property around. It is within walking distance from everything (restaurants, bars, markets, stores, art galleries, the famous national park & the beach). You don't need to speak English here as it is spoken in most places. There is a bank, ATM, souvenir shop and super market adjacent to this property. Both cabs and buses are constantly passing by, totally safe and super cheap. We took both buses and cab rides; then rented a car for the last 3 days for only $40 per day (including unlimited miles and insurance). Agua Azul, which is one of the best restaurants in Manuel Antonio is located right in this condo complex. The food there was so tasty that we ended up eating there 4 times! We highly recommend this VRBO property.

Gorgeous view

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is perfect for a short-term stay and the owner will send you every bit of information you will need to have a pleasant stay. The view is amazing and yes, it is close to restaurants, grocery, entertainment, etc. Having said that, you will need a car/taxi to get to and from the Manuel Antonio beach/park area. The apartment is quite comfortable and eating outside on the terrace is quite nice (if you don't mind the iguanas looking at you... There was one on the roof, next to the terrace, every single day!) Some of the tiles inside are cracked and will stain your feet/socks, just move a chair to cover them so you avoid walking on them. Overall it's a very nice and convenient place to stay. And the owner--and staff there--are prompt to answer any questions you may have. I'd definitely recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. I appreciate the honest effort and good words towards me.
In response to your comments, yes, there is an iguana that likes to frequent the outside of my property, as well as the outside of the adjacent property. She is very well-behaved and will never go inside the property. She is sort of like a pet to us. Isn't she cute? Some guests feed her, so she is not going anywhere anytime soon. She is too smart for that:-)
As far as the red on the tiles staining your sucks goes, I am so sorry about that, but you are correct. There are 3 small floor tiles underneath the living room couch. Guests have moved the couch front and back, which has weaken the life of these 3 tiles. It is really a non-issue if you don't move the couch. The couch does not have to be moved. The maid always makes sure that the very small area where the 3 tiles are stays cleaned and waxed until we can replace them.
Thank you again for the 4-star review. You seem to have enjoy the property.

pura vida!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a one weeks stay and all I can say is pura vida! what an amazing place Marc has. The location is great, close to the beach and the town of Quepos. Spectacular views from both inside and out, clean, comfortable perfect for 2 people. Could put 2 more on sofa bed if needed. Very well stocked kitchen which had everything you need to make meals. Close to grocery stores one is right next door and one 4 blocks away. Bank is located right next door too. Bus stop close by and taxis are always available. In my opinion you will not find a better view in all of Manuel Antonio. From the monkeys to resident iguana that visited every day you could not ask for more. The pool was very nice, a great way to unwind after a day of exploring the beautiful area. We will be back. Patrick and Lisa

The villa was comfortable, clean and located within walking distance of several shops and restaurants. The villa is not a great place if you are looking for privacy or quiet time as the Agua Azul looks into the front porch and if the curtains are not drawn, you can see in to the neighboring villas. However, the view is beautiful and when the front doors are closed, the unit is pretty quiet. Marc sent a lot of information, which was helpful when we arrived in hectic Manuel Antonio.
