About Joni

We 1st visited Costa Rica with our 3 children in 1998 and loved everything about this magical place named Manuel Antonio & all it has to offer (mountains & breathtaking ocean views, dense jungle w/exotic wildlife, awesome dining, & friendly relaxed atmosphere). We purchased a piece of ocean view property and designed, built & managed our Manuel Antonio small boutique hotel (Mango Moon-rated #3 on Tripadvisor at the time). We sold Mango Moon in 2008 and returned to the states to be close to our 3 grown children & aging parents. Manuel Antonio with all the nature & wildlife, friendly people & casual lifestyle were greatly missed; upon a return visit we purchased our Ocean View Villa, completely remodeled, with intentions to share with others desiring a casual luxury home away from home while on vacation. I hope you enjoy our newly remodeled & updated Villa as much as we do and return home with treasured memories with your loved ones. Happy Travels & Enjoy Your Time Away From Home ~ Be Blessed!

Joni purchased this villa in 2013

Why Joni chose Manuel Antonio

Dramatic Pacific Ocean Views nestled in the jungle on one of the highest points in Manuel Antonio while living in casual luxury just a few steps to great dining, spa, 3 beaches, bank, & grocery store. Public transportation stops 1 minute walk away & a 3 minute ride to the beach & town for only 285 colones (.50) or 15 minute walk to 3 different beaches. Manuel Antonio has the best Costa Rica has to offer with no mega resorts or fast food. It is a magical place as close as it gets to paradise with breathtaking sunsets & amazing wildlife(white faced monkeys, titi monkeys. sloths, howler monkeys koatis, toucans, iguanas, & a variety of birds that enjoy the abundance of flora).

What makes this villa unique

Awe-inspiring Pacific Ocean Sunset Views, Exotic Wildlife, nestled in dense jungle, Natural Beauty of National Park & Beaches which you can walk to 3 beaches in less than 15 minutes & only steps to some of the best restaurants, cafes, grocery store, ATM and nightlife. A car is not necessary to enjoy the best of Manuel Antonio!

Perfect Honeymoon Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I just returned from our honeymoon where we stayed at Villa Vista Mar. We absolutely loved every part of our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a Manuel Antonio Villa. I hope this review covers all bases of consideration:

The Villa:
Very new, clean and modern - our favorite part was the two large sliding glass doors that open to wonderful fresh ocean air and a breathtaking view. We spent each morning drinking Costa Rican coffee and relaxing in the hammock...it was perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable, linens of very high quality, multiple ceiling fans and an AC unit that worked when we needed it. Can't say enough about the actual villa if you are looking for something that feels like a dream villa and not a hotel room. Everything detailed in the listing was accurate and even better than we expected.

The location: Its not on the beach...but after you get over that, consider that this villa is extremely close to the bus stop where you can get to the beach quickly and cheaply (or to Manuel Antonio restaurants, or Quepos for that matter). Close to supermarkets, restaurants and everywhere you would want to go in Manuel Antonio. This is the next best thing to being on the beach (and if on the beach you are further away from the good restaurants)

The Owner: Of equal value to the awesomeness of the villa is Joni and her concierge Sabrina. Joni was superb from the first inquiry email we sent to helping us plan our activities, explaining helpful travel tips, and connecting us with Sabrina for assistance while we were there. When we arrived Joni arranged to have a bouquet of flowers, chocolate and champagne waiting for us...we didn't ask or pay extra for this...that is service!! While there, Sabrina answered our every email (I didn't have my phone activated for CR) made awesome suggestions and even invited us out to dinner with her and her husband one evening! Joni & Sabrina know the meaning of customer service and they treated us like royalty. Even on our tours the guides told us that Joni called ahead and asked to give us special treatment because we were on our honeymoon...wow!

Our favorites:
Tours: El Santuario Canopy Tours, Savegre Horseback Riding
Dinners: La Luna (amazing risotto), Mar Luna (fresh catch every day), Ronny's Place, Cafe Milagro (breakfast & coffee every day!)

In short, thank you so much to Joni & Sabrina! We loved our stay and it was a memorable honeymoon!

Perfect little haven

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at your property in Manuel Antonio! We rented the king suite and our family of 3 found it to be the most perfect place to unwind for the first 3 days of our 10 day vacation. The property was in a fantastic location for our needs (in fact, we are missing Cafe Milagro, Agua Azul and the little corner market with the best pineapple!). Everything was very comfortable, clean and well kept. The view was stunning--I think the pictures of the view online do not do it justice. From the sliding doors, we even saw the (endangered) mono Titi monkeys playing in the trees near the pool. One of the very best things about the property was Sabrina--she was beyond fantastic. Having someone there who can help direct you to things ended up being a very important aspect of our trip. She helped us by scheduling a few amazing day trips which were highlights of our stay (canopy tour and white water rafting), recommended places to eat (the above mentioned restaurants, and we made it to Ronnie's--incredible). Thanks for helping to make our time in Costa Rica such an amazing experience. We look forward to staying again!

Owner's Response: Hi Andrea
So glad to hear you had a great time, and yes.. The breathtaking view, the many awesome restaurants & cafés within walking distance, and our small well-stocked grocery store next door are all just a few of our many perks! Our newly remodeled villa with our super comfy mattresses, and new SS kitchen . There is a bank/ATM next door as well as yoga studio and great dining all around! Thanks for staying and glad Sabrina took care of all your needs!

Magical!

  • 5 of 5
Our five day stay was amazing. It began with meeting Sabrina, who gave us an overview of the area and then throughout the week she kept in touch by suggesting places to eat and what activities were available to us. The villa was perfect for the two of us and centrally located. The view from the villa was breathtaking and a great way to begin our mornings. We would definitely stay here again!

Great accommodations and service!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed a Joni's Villa at El Parque. We had a fabulous time in Manuel Antonio.

Rooms:
We had 4 adults so we booked the upper and lower villa. There were really nice forest and ocean views ( even the Catedral at Manuel Antonio Park ).The upper is a little nicer, with a full kitchen and more modern updates. The lower villa is quieter with the fabulous hammock. All of the beds were super comfy, and the A/C worked well. The Villas are built on the side of a cliff ( as is most of Manuel Antonio ), so be prepared to climb the steps daily.


Area:
The Villa is on "top of the hill" and is central to all of the nice restaurants ( Barba Roja, Emilos, El Avion, The Wagon ). There is a small supermarket and Bank ATM located right next door.
The only downside of el Parque was the common area pool. It is a bit dated and appeared to be dirty, although it was just the paint peeling. There is not much of a view from the pool, but you could possibly spot monkeys and a sloth.

Tours:
Joni had provided a list of tours ahead of time and offered discounts if we booked through her. Since we did not know what the weather was going to be like or what we would feel like doing, we ended up booking 3 tours through Joni after arrival, most of them that morning. Joni was very responsive and made sure that all of our needs were met. She even provided a quick text with events and recommended restaurants for that evening.

Animals :
Yes! We saw Howler and Squirrel monkeys in the surrounding trees. They migrate daily, but if you stay for several days, you are sure to see them. There was a sloth in the tree adjacent to the pool across from the villa ( you have to have a good eye ).

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kevin, for your great review. You and your family were a pleasure to have as guests. Pool update: our pool (located right in front of our villa) has just had a complete makeover and looks great! Relaxing in a lounge chair, cooking your fresh catch on the charcoal grill, taking a fresh dip in the sparkling pool waiting to spot an iguana, monkey or sloth in the surrounding trees...what could be better after an awesome day at the beach or a return from a tour. We look forward to your return visit as well as other guests to enjoy!

we did not really stay in this condo

  • 4 of 5
I thought we rented the two bedroom, two bathroom place that Joni also owns, but we actually stayed in the one bedroom, one bathroom place that is a level lower. I was bit confused about this. The place that we stayed was nice but a bit cramped for the four of us. Additionally, there are a lot of stairs to get to the condo - so take this into account if you have disabilities. Joni is a great host and did arrange for all of our activities which was really nice. The Manual Antonio area is a must see on your visit to Costa Rica. We toured the park, and did a night time rainforest tour that we really loved. We also really enjoyed our zip lining at El Santuario Canopy Adventures. Our favorite restaurant is Ronnie's - for the sunset. We loved Cafe Milagro for breakfast.
