Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed it so much here swimming in the pool, relaxing and going to many different restaurants. We loved Andres checking on us everyday and giving us a lot of suggestions. We especially like Ronny's restaurant and went there twice. It has great food, a nice view and free WiFi for the kids. For ziplining, we say MidWorld(you have to try the superman). For rafting, we suggest PRO.

The pool is great after the beach or at night we would hop in. Very relaxing outside when it was not 1000 degrees. Beautiful views, and tons of monkeys, so fun to watch.

We really loved it here and we know the next group will like it too. Hope to be back one day. Pura Vida

Unbelievable Home

  • 5 of 5
We spent Valentine's Day at Villa Sonrisas. The property is exquisite! The house is secluded and quiet, but still very close to all activities. The peek-a-boo view of the ocean is beautiful. The house is a wonderful retreat after playing hard all day. It is a gorgeous home that is well kept. Andres is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed visiting with him. He made excellent recommendations for activities and restaurants. He arranged transportation when we needed it. He can take care of any need or want you may have. The pool and garden is well kept. The monkeys came to visit every afternoon. We saw many species of birds as it was migration season. We saw birds we have never seen before. The pool was refreshing during the heat of the day, and at night too! We spent most of our time at the home on the porch in the rocking chairs. Manuel Antonio National Park is a must see. The species of wildlife seen there is vast and amazing. The beaches are wonderful whether in the park, or just outside of the park. The shopping is a joy. All kinds of tastes can be satisfied. The items made of native woods are breath-taking. The fishing is incredible. Billfish are in abundance. Rooster fish are fun to catch, and make a great picture. The view of the coastline from the water is beautiful, and great for pictures. If you enjoy rafting, Pro Rafting is an excellent company with knowledgeable guides. The zip line adventure is a beautiful trip into the local mountains. Whatever is chosen, a camera is a must. We try to visit Costa Rica yearly, and Villa Sonrisas will be our home of choice to rent. The owners (Jean) and Andres are invaluable. They are caring and helpful. This rental will never disappoint!

Perfect week in "Paradise" - 7/4 to 7/11/14

Perfect week in "Paradise" - 7/4 to 7/11/14
  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at the beautiful Villa Sonrisas located in a secluded area at the edge of Manuel Antonio Park which is owned by “Don” Jean and Maggie. The thoughtfully planned architecture is visible at every corner inside and outside of the house. We found all the needed amenities for a relaxing and home-like setting which is most important when you are far from home. The panoramic views from the top balcony were fantastic and relaxing. We enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets from there. In addition, this is where we could see the squirrel and white face monkeys on the patio and in the wooded area near the house. They came in multitude and we have great pictures of them eating the fruits and playing together…this was the most enjoyable thing for us and we didn’t see as many monkeys when we visited the Manuel Antonio Park! We also enjoyed the refreshing and lovely pool in the afternoons after our excursions.
Thank you so much Jean and Maggie for letting us stay in your beautiful house for this memorable week in Costa Rica! We are recommending your Villa to all our friends!
A BIG thank you to Andres who oversees the property and was so considerate and helpful in recommending restaurants, places to visit, and setting up the tour companies for us. We were picked up at the Villa by PRO Tour for our all-day white water rafting adventure on the Savegre River; by Henry of HP Tours to go to Manual Antonio Park (Thank you, Henry, for a very informative and enjoyable tour!); by MidWorld Costa Rica for wonderful canopy Zip-lining and ATV adventures.
We loved every bit of our vacation! We love Costa Rica and Villa Sonrisas! We will go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful home in a GREAT area!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Sonrisas is truly everything you see in the pictures and then some. We were 2 families with 8 and 10 year olds - was perfect. This home is so well appointed and tastefully decorated, none of the clutter you get in some rentals. All beautiful clean lines, gorgeous tile work and spectacular scenery! You feel like you are spending the week in the canopy. Then . . . at around 5 pm most nights troops of monkeys come through, right in your own back yard. Jean was great to deal with for the booking, and Andres in Costa Rica was a delight and there immediately if we needed anything. House is in a fantastic location close to beaches, restaurants and everything you could want. We hope to go back and hate to have left Villa Sonrisas!!

Beautiful House at a Great Price

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Sonrisas in Manuel Antonio. It is beautiful and set up perfectly for families or small groups. We had 3 couples (6 guests total) and it was just the right amount of space. The house was convienently located between the beach and Quepos. We had rented a car for the week which made getting around very easy. The house is fully equipped with most everything you might need. We spent a lot of evenings relaxing on the patio and in the pool. Andres was willing to set up exursions, day trips, and offer restaurant. Be careful with the amount of electronics used at one time and DO NOT run both AC's at the same time. The power situation is sensitive and prone to outages. The phone lines went out the second day in town and so we didn't have a working phone line the entire time. While Andres was more than willing to book trips for us, it would have been nice to call the companies ourselves. Make sure you know the lot number and state this to the security guards. They are very seious about their security and won't let people in without the right information. The ATV tour through Quad Adventure was a must do! Manuel Antonio park is beautiful and the beaches are worth the entrance fee. The half day snorkel trip/sunset sail was also a lot of fun! Manuel Antonio park is beautiful and the beaches are worth the entrance fee. Guides are helpful if you want to see wildlife (other than monkeys). Don't bother pre-booking a guide, you can get a guide for much cheaper right outside the park entrance ($20 for the group). I would recommend this house for families or groups of friends. Great place at a great price!

Owner's Response: Hello Amanda. We are glad that you enjoyed Villa Sonrisas relaxed atmosphere and beautiful setting. Things move slowly in paradise and it took the phone company a while to fix the phone line. We are investigating the reason for the circuit breaker tripping in order to resolve this issue. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and are looking forward to see you again at Villa Sonrisas.

"VILLA SONRISA" WHAT A VACATION WOW by Pierre Richard Maximilien
  • 5 of 5
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.
