Condo Del Mar, A Unique Condominium Experience by the Sea

Imagine entering your luxurious vacation home away from home completely furnished with everything to make your stay incredible and have the refrigerator and pantry already stocked with the items you have selected in advance. . No need to spend your time shopping, it's done for you so you can spend your vacation like you are supposed to. Then, for that first meal after a day of traveling, enjoy an already prepared dinner on the deck as you watch the sun drop serenely into the Pacific. The next morning, your personal van picks you up at the door and takes you directly to the best sport fishing boat in the harbor, The Frenzy, and you're off for an incredible day of fishing for Marlin and Sailfish or maybe you stay inshore for Roosterfish. If fishing is not your thing, the van instead takes you to one of many eco-touring spots of the area or you try the zip-line canopy tours or white water rafting.

Maybe you just want to relax the first day and have an in-home massage and laze by the pool.

Casa El Mar is the most unique vacation rental condominium located in the incredible beauty of the Manuel Antonio area. It has optional features not found in a typical condominium such as a full time maid, the pre-vacation food and beverage service and a full time concierge manager that will give you 5 star service from the moment of your arrival. This spacious 3-bedroom penthouse has the best ocean views of the entire complex. Now open on the same property is a fine dining restaurant and a full service cocktail and pool bar, to compliment the large pool with a spacious sun deck overlooking the ocean.

There are nature trails adjoining the property where you can hike and observe monkeys, sloths, butterflies and other features of the tropical rainforest. It is just a short walk to Bisanz beach.

This small beach doesn't have the crowds of the larger Manuel Antonio Beach and offers snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. For those a little more adventurous you can walk by beach all the way to Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica's most popular National Park and for good reason.

Come and enjoy this unique condominium experience and prepare to be pampered!

Do Not Hesitate to rent this condo.... it was awesome!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We went to Condo del Mar with 3 adults and 5 kids ages 17 to 24. Every one of us had an unbelievable experience because of how awesome the condo was. It is one of the nicest places we have stayed in and would go back in a heart beat. Our daughter had just moved to Manuel Antonio a few month prior to our staying in the condo. She stayed with us and being in the condo made us feel like we were at home together because of the comfort and coziness.
From the time I emailed Kerwin about renting his condo, I knew that it was the place for us. Kerwin could not have been more helpful answering all of my questions and even making me feel much better about having my first born so far away from us. Willy, his property manager, helped us with everything and has continued to be my daughters "go to man" when she needs help with anything.
The condo is in a great place with an incredible view. It is huge and has everything you need in it for cooking, laundry or going to the beach. Each room has its own balcony which is so nice, especially when you share with other families. We spent hours sitting on the balcony watching the monkey, ocean, sunrise, sunset and the kids in the pool.
There isn't one negative thing any of the 8 of us can say about our stay. My daughter who lives close by to the condo can't wait until we visit again so she can stay with us.
A huge thank you to Kerwin and his family and to Willy for an awesome vacation.

Respite with a view

  • 5 of 5
We booked Condo del Mar as a goodbye weekend with friends after a long year serving in city San Jose - a family of 5, a married couple and a single lady. The place was more than we could ever have hoped for - beautifully decorated, quiet, amazing views, great pool and fantastic beach nearby. We cooked all of our own meals, did the puzzles with the kids, sat overlooking the ocean with coffee in hand... it was the respite we all needed and we are so grateful to Kerwin, Lisa and Willy for the stay. It was the perfect place at the perfect time.

expensive, but High end, well appointed condo with great views and nice pool/bar

  • 4 of 5
The condo is very nice and very high end. though the living room and kitchen are relatively small, the bedrooms are spectacular. two are on opposite ends of the condo and are expansive and have associated living/relaxing space with their own large bathrooms, and their own private balconies with excellent views of the ocean and the nice pool below. the third bedroom is smaller but also has a balcony with views a nice bathroom across the hall. there is a 4th bathroom off the kitchen/living room, and also a large balcony. Laundry facilities in the condo were a great bonus. the condo has very high ceilings which give it a very big, luxurious feel. We were a family of 6 and the place worked out great for us with two in each bedroom, but because of the bedroom size, appointments and arrangements this Condo could easily be a getaway for 3 couples (or families) or two small families. The pool was very nice, and the associated bar/restaurant was very convenient for afternoon relaxation and drinks after a day of exploring.

the location is very good, within a walk to a beach that is pretty but not great for swimming (very rocky - hard to walk in). we had a Car and used it to explore, and this is critical unless you plan to use cabs.

with a car or by cab it is very easy to get to many nice restaurants, beaches, and other attractions from the central location, but due to distance, hills and narrow streets i would not recommend walking far. there was a dedicated place for parking a vehicle.

Willy, the property manager/concierge was extremely helpful in orienting us and helping to plan activities. a guide book prepared by the owner was spot on with recommendations for fun activities and great places to visit/eat. i would have given this place 5 stars if it had been more reasonably priced... but it is a high end property, and more than we needed, and you do get what you pay for.

Well-appointed condo with stunning views

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely home recently with another family....it is absolutely beautiful and both the interior and grounds/pool are immaculately maintained. We also found the property manager to be very friendly, professional, and helpful. The WIFI had a strong signal and was reliable, and it was a plus to be able to wash a load of laundry in the condo. The morning coffee view from the patio was stunning with lots of bird traffic--we didn't see any monkeys, but we heard them! It is extremely close to many restaurants and Manuel Antonio Park.

My only negative feedback is that the water supply was on and off for several hours during both days of our stay--not such a big deal on vacation--but it is still nice to take a shower on a whim :) Upon departure, we learned that this was property-wide during the weekend due to maintenance. I would also encourage those walking to Biesanz Beach (which is lovely) to carry a stick--a small, but aggressive, dog owned by the only homeowner on the beach path bit my husband without any provocation. The groundskeepers were very helpful in accompanying us in the dark down a path to the house without a phone line to verify rabies vaccination. We went back the next morning (the kids loved it) and the dogs were contained--but we learned that we should always be prepared with a dog deterrant when in unknown territory. The elevator was also out of commission--I don't know if this is typical. Not an issue for us to walk one flight of stairs--but it would be if a person had a disability.

This would be a perfect condo for 3 couples traveling together--and it was excellent for our group of 2 families (the layout is such that you have privacy and plenty of room). Three spacious and beautiful bathrooms. We will definitely recommend to others and hope to return again ourselves when we can make plans to fish with Frenzy.

A luxurious escape

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth time visiting these condos, but our first time in Condo Del Mar. The penthouse really is the best - the view, the rooms, the furnishings and the service were impeccable. We went with a few adult friends and our children. It's hard to find a place to please such a range of ages and interests, but everyone loved it. While one couple did the Titi Canopy tour, another family hung out at the pool, while another went to the nearby beach to snorkel. Just perfect. Can't wait to go back.
