I will quickly say that we loved our stay at MANUEL ANTONIO' VILLA SONRISAS The Location is ideal on the mountain a few minutes walk to the stores, restaurants and a short drive to the beach, Manuel Antonio Nat'l Park, Quepos...

Photos were spot-on: the house is modern & lovely: clean, new appliances, great pool, Magnificent view.

The owners, Jean and Magguy are the greatest person I ever met, the house manager, and concierge were outstanding! I feel like we received excellent treatment for our $$. Jean and Magguy were available in advance for email questions and trip planning.
I would recommend this property to anyone!



The pool: It is well maintained and has ample space to relax, take a sun Tan or have lunch or Dinner.
Outdoor patio: Wow, such a great place to watch the animals: capuchin monkeys, pygmy owl (up by the master bedroom), frogs, lizards, iguanas, crazy amounts of birds, parrots, insects, etc... We ate most of our meals there.

We did expect a working grill, and the grill was working perfectly.

Kitchen: all new appliances; worked great. Spices are in abundance for all kind of taste

Internet access: is provided. There is a modem.

We visit Costa Rica often and will stay at your home from now on, unless it's rented. Your home was everything you advertised plus some. I have never had a rental that was more than advertised. Usually they were less. I appreciate all you did to help us and look forward to returning with our children soon.

Our feeling about Villa Sonrisas can be described in one word…fine! Located in a very nice and safe area between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, this home is beautifully appointed and maintained, with great attention to simplicity and detail. Best of all, the balance of nature is on display 24/7 in Costa Rica and Villa Sonrisas puts you right in the thick of it all. You can observe a variety of flora and fauna from the comfort of the open living areas and balconies, the pool, or while walking the property.

Owner Jean, and property manager Andrés, were extremely helpful and absolutely wonderful to work with. My wife and I have rented many vacation properties over the years and the importance of honesty and trust among all involved cannot be overstated. These gentlemen are some of the best we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Oh, and by the way, if you are into birds, be sure to have Andrés do some of his vocalizations for you…he's very good!

There are two very good restaurants within walking distance (Z and Gaia) and the bus stop is also convenient for going into Quepos or to the park/beaches.

We highly recommend this property if you are looking for a peaceful place to call “home” while visiting Costa Rica.
Owner's Response: Hello Elizabeth and Mitch. Thank you very much for your comments. We are extremely pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our house and are looking forward to have you for your next winter vacation.

I've rented many homes on VRBO and this is one of the best. As described. We'll appointed. Owner Jean and property manager Andreas both responsive and helpful. Spacious and airy. Really nice flora and fauna including large troop of monkeys that put on a show one evening about 5. The pool was refreshing relief after day of activities. Would be most suitable for 6 people or less. Only quibble was washer and dryer were in locked room. Housekeeper came and did laundry for us but we like to do our own. Five minutes to Quepos, 10-12 to park. Had great day of zip lining with El Santuario. Will definitely consider staying here again if return to MA.

Not to be missed is Manuel Antonio National Park, arguably the country's most beautiful and protected coastal area.
