IF ONLY IT WERE THAT EASY......LOL......
THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING.......
Imagine paradise, now imagine your home in Paradise; Casa Bella Vista! The Villa is nestled in the jungle high above the rest of Manuel Antonio,but within walking distance to restaurants, stores and an ATM. A bit of a trek to the beach but doable or a quick taxi ride with a great payoff, awesome beaches and fun restaurants with ceviche and plenty of beer or the local drink cacique.
When we got to CBV we were greeted by the wonderful smile and warm welcome of our gracious and generous host/concierge Sani Teni. We had arranged all our tours and activities in advance with Sani. All our activities were 1st class and made our stay effortless and exceptional.
CBV includes, Sani, our guard Coco who alerted us to all visiting and resident animals. 3 resident sloths, mamma,baby and male,
toucans,other birds, troops of Spider, White Face and Howler monkeys,lizards and frogs to name the coolest animals that came by.
We had maid service daily,laundry service and a chef by request. We had an amazing dinner elegantly prepared and served on our beautiful patio overlooking the infinity pool that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The picture cannot do justice to the serene and exquisite view.
Our group of 8 recommend the Villa and the immense expertise of Sani.
This home is absolutely fabulous and far surpassed our expectations!! The layout accomodated 10 people very comfortably and with ease. The pool and view were stunning and the location made it very private. We felt like we had our own wildlife sactuary right in the backyard with the daily monkeys, birds, sloth etc. The staff took care of all our needs in detail and Sani the concierge was a delight. He pointed us in the right direction for great food (Emilio's for one, close by and excellent), an adventurous hike to waterfalls which he guided us himself, and an unforgettable rafting trip on the Savengre River. We hope to be back sometime in 2015.
The home is very comfortable and spacious. The views are incredible. From talking to others, I can tell you that this is the best way to experience Costa Rica - in a more secluded, private home. There are tons of restaurants and bars within walking distance, but you feel really close to nature and not other houses or hotels. (And the local grocery store delivers!) We saw all kinds of wildlife. Monkeys and sloths were our favorites.
Can't say enough good things about the concierge and house staff. They went way above and beyond our expectations. Fishing and zip-lining were both great, but so were walking in the rain and watching the lightning storms from the top deck!
We travelled with one other family and 3 teenagers. There was something for all of us and lots of special memories, too! Can't wait to go back.
I absolutely was blown away by my stay at this beautiful home. Everything was immaculate, and the pool and bar area are unreal. I wanted to stay forever! I loved that there were monkeys all over the property, and the bedrooms were spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. I'd recommend this property to anyone who's looking for a dream vacation!
Just wanted to send you a note. Our trip was wonderful. Your home is amazing. We barely wanted to leave to do our activities. The view was breathtaking from every part of the house. It was always nice to get back to the house because the breeze there was the best.....always welcomed after our walks to the beach and town.
Carlos was tremendous. He made us feel safe. He kept us aware of all the monkey and reptile activity around the house which was really cool. We knew we could count on him to lock up what we might have missed. The pool was immaculate every morning. None of us ever stayed at a place where a caretaker was on premise. We were a little leery of it, but Carlos proved us wrong. The perfect amount of involvement and privacy.
We posted pictures to our friends and family. If anyone asks...we will tell them hands down...best vacation house ever.
Sani was great also. He too, perfect amount of involvement and privacy. He helped us with anything we wanted.
Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Where do I start? The pictures provided on Home-Away were plentiful but really do not do the villa justice. I was concerned that it would not live up to the "hype" but just the opposite was true - it was far better! The view is just stunning! the outside area with the pool and lounge chairs go plenty of use. We even used the outdoor BBQ twice!
Monkeys visited the house daily and we say 3 different species without leaving the house. Toucans visited the house on our 1st and last day as well as the house has 3 sloths (1 being a baby) that are on the premises.
The staff was superb!!! Sunny manages the property and gave us the best tips on where to eat and what activities to participate in. Every one of his recommendations were excellent. Carlos lives at the house and ensured we enjoyed ourselves as well as ensured our safety. Carlos would come grab us whenever monkeys were nearby!!! The villa also comes with a maid who is there about 6 hours a day - she will do your dishes and laundry if needed. The house is extremely well maintained and kept clean.
We have rented homes for 6 of the last 7 years and we all agreed (6 of us) that Manuel Antonio was our favorite destination and Casa Bella was our favorite house. We could walk to several restaurants and for many of the activities, they come and pick you up at the villa! We had 3 couples and each of us were able to have our own bedroom and own bathroom (there was even a 4th bedroom that was not used!). The kitchen is well stocked and we cooked in 3 nights and went out the other 3 nights. It was so easy!!
I truly want to thank all of the staff for making our 2013 Thanksgiving vacation the best yet!!!
