With its private access to a magnificent unspoiled beach, Villa Noor sits on 5 acres of tropical garden where you can find giant rainforest trees, a small creek, birds, howler monkeys and other wildlife species.

Would definitely go back

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great stay in Manzanillo! Villa Noor was the perfect place for us. The house was very spacious, even for our family of 7 (including 4 college students). We loved the open terrace with hammocks. Though it was a bit of a drive, we enjoyed being further away from the other tourists in Puerto Viejo and Punta Uva. We would definitely recommend having a car though if staying here, since the house is located a ways off the road in the woods, and the path is not lit. The house was as described, clean and the house-keepers, Lucia and Miguel, were very friendly (though they speak limited English)! In the morning we could hear howler monkeys and parrots in the trees right around the house. We were even lucky enough to spot 2 sloths and a toucan during our stay. We went at the end of the rainy season and it rained several times at night while we were there. Because of this, there were more waves and the snorkeling was poor. We did see some fish, sea urchins, and jelly fish but otherwise it wasn't great. I'm sure that depending on the weather and water levels, etc., it would be very different. We were told that the best snorkeling was off the public beach in front of the water tower. If you walk further down the beach to the right, past where the river meets the ocean, there are several more secluded stretches of beach which are nice. If you have the chance, take an early morning boat ride to see dolphins up close. Though expensive ($30-$35 pp), this was definitely a highlight for our family.

Great home base

  • of 5
This home is a quiet relaxing getaway. Walk to the beach or the village or just spend the day at home scanning the trees for wildlife. The property description is quite accurate. Be aware that it is a mix of "modern" and traditional Caribean building styles. The upstairs level is open air leading to the stairwell and downstairs. The two upstairs bedrooms are self enclosed and screened. We were nervous that the open construction would lead to mosquitos etc but we had no issues with them in the house at all. Each upstairs bedroom is it's own screened-in room with the bathroom connecting the two. The house is spacious.
The property is like being in the forest. Huge beautiful old growth trees, crabs and lizards aplenty and the sounds of parrots and howler monkeys will greet you each morning. A car is recommended. While you can easily walk to Manzillo village the other towns and acitivites are bit too far to walk (45 mintues or so to the closest one) many people rent bikes but be aware that the road is hilly, potholed and narrow. HIGHLY recommend Omar with Bucus tours for guided hikes in the Gandoca forest. It is walking distance but aside from the coastline walking trail not advisable to go into the forest without a guide. There are no signs, no marked trails and it would be very easy to get lost. Not too mention the number of bullet ants and pit viper snakes that abound in the woods. We probably wouldn't have found them without a guide but would hate to have discovered them by "accident". Omar is a very personable, eagle eyed local with formal guide training. He can also take you on a great kayak paddle of the lagoon.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We found the house to be exactly as described on the HomeAway website. The house was clean and well equipped for our five night stay. Miguel and Lucia were great, very friendly and helpful. If you stay here you will have great access to a beautiful beach as well as a feeling of staying in the jungle. We would highly recommend Villa Noor fore anyone who values privacy.

A True Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend staying at Villa Noor! In fact, I have already told all my friends & family that when they go to Costa Rica, that's where they need to stay. We felt so secure in the private gated property. The beach was ours - how fabulous to swim & boogie board any time we wanted to! The house was well kept and the beds were comfortable. No need for an alarm clock with the howler monkeys and birds. They are like clockwork. It's awesome! :)
I hope you have as much fun as we did. Puerto Viejo is a fun, somewhat tourist town. You will want to have a car to get there but many great restaurants and shops. Check out Luna May for hand-made women's dresses and accessories too. We also went to "Alice" for organic homemade ice cream 2 times in 3 days. Check it out.

Ecotourism at its best

  • 5 of 5
The location of the property is very convenient close to Manzanillo. The house is in the rainforest and you get to experience rainforest flora and fauna right in your backyard. Howler monkeys, sloths, numerous varieties of birds, lizards, turtles warming up in the afternoon on the logs in the creek and fireflies lighting up the sky at night. The house itself is well maintained, equipped with all you need. Caretakers just a call away if any issues arise. Overall we had a great experience and I would recommend the place to anyone.
