About Edgar

The magical, privately owned property is rented out to Luz de Alba (Light of Dawn). It is Costa Rican company who employ local help, including fabulous chefs from the area who cook mouth watering tropical delicateness customized personally for you alone. They are involved in various local projects to help protect and promote the Rain Forest.

Edgar purchased this villa in 2005

Why Edgar chose Manuel Antonio

It is the closest places to Paradise. Only a few hours flight from US. Out of the hurricane zone. English is widely spoken. The property is conveniently located within a half hour of town, the Park, the beaches, and the airport. CR is only 9 degrees from the equator. The property is normally 10 cooler than in town, so most couples find it really refreshing at the end of a hot day. Heat and humidity can sometimes range in the 90's down below.

What makes this villa unique

Your own private rainforest - like having a National Park without the tourists. One of the most varied collections of tropical flowers as you will see in one place. Your absolute privacy is guaranteed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As seen on TripAdvisor:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this remote home outside of Manuel Antonio and Quepos. It was worth it. We were surrounded by incredible views and Costa Rican nature -- including toucans outside our windows -- that provided a very relaxing spot after a day of sightseeing. The home is very large and comfortable -- our oldest child loved the hammock , and the homeowners are incredibly welcoming and gracious, doing everything possible -- including driving us wherever we needed to go and loaning us a cell phone -- to ensure that we had a perfect stay. Being able to have a chef during our stay made it an even more relaxing vacation.

Wow! Waking up to a view straight out of a movie!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The view was so stunning, it was like waking up in the movie Ferngully with so many colorful birds flying around the jungle below and a clear view all the way down the mountain. There are no other homes in sight. We saw hummingbirds, trogons, flycatchers and tons of other birds we couldn't even identify. We enjoyed the personal attention Peter gave us and especially enjoyed the tour of the property, seeing all of the cool things Peter has growing. He is even raising cattle on the property.

It's a bumpy ride to the home, but we were able to make the trip in a regular rental car. Also, we heard that the road will soon be improved so it should be a smoother drive to town. We enjoyed relaxing at the house and also enjoyed going to Manuel Antonio Park. Thanks for a wonderful stay Peter-you were a wonderful host!

Wonderful tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this mountaintop getaway. The home is a bit remote but once you get there you discover that it is worth the drive. It is large, comfortable and surrounded by beautiful views of the rainforest and all that goes with it. The homeowners did everything possible to ensure we had a wonderful visit and having a chef available made our vacation even more relaxing and enjoyable. Definitely the best of Costa Rican hospitality.

Unforgettable Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

For people looking to have a honeymoon that is unique, relaxing, private with breathtaking views, I would highly recommend Light of Dawn! My husband and I enjoyed being pampered for a week with a personal chef and private quarters. We hope to go back one day!!! It was hard to adjust going back to cooking our own food and making our own bed :-P

The Ultimate Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Light of Dawn is everything and more of what we had expected. The pictures do not do justice! From the hospitality of Pete and Deborah, to the amazing views of the rainforest, to the absolute delicious and outstanding meals prepared from Edgar (along with his "surprises"), to the sweetness of Clara, and to the mornings of waking up to the howling monkeys, we are already desperately wanting to return. This was the most perfect honeymoon! We were able to have our private tours on the property, two days of excursions where we chose Zip-lining and Horseback riding. Although September is considered a winter month, we certainly lucked out with our tours as they ended up being private with only us two as reservations! Excursions were done in the morning, so upon returning home, we were able to relax to electrifying thunder and lightning storms. For the last two nights of our honeymoon, we chose to stay at the beach. The hotel was a stylish boutique hotel with friendly staff members. The area was nice too as we were able to experience more of the "town" culture of the Manuel Antonio Area. Not was our house stocked with snacks, beverages and goodies, but the same treats came along for our hotel stay at the beach! Pete, Deborah, Edgar and Clara were so wonderful in taking good care of us, we hope they have as great of a memory of us as we do them! xoxo, we hope to see you soon, Kristy and Jim

Owner's Response: Kristy and Jim! It was an absolute joy having you both!. What fun we all had with you. You inspired the chef to carve you a whole restaurant out of vegetables! We are still laughing! Come back and see us anytime! Best from the gang.

Beautiful and Peaceful Getaway in the Costa Rican Rainforest!

  • 5 of 5

My mother, husband, and I spent 4 nights at this beautiful getaway in the Costa Rican rain forest and absolutely loved it! The grounds were gorgeous with amazing landscaping and waterfalls we walked to right on the property. While the road up to the rental house was a bit treacherous at times, we did fine with a 4x4 rental and Peter (one of the owners) was able to meet us in town and have us follow him to the house. It was so quiet and peaceful once at the rental house and we saw a variety of birds and butterflies right from our veranda window!

Peter and Deborah were both very accommodating and helpful both during our stay there and also before our trip in preparation. We highly recommend this place if you're looking for some peace, quiet, and natural Costa Rican beauty!!

Great little get away!

  • 5 of 5

Great little place to stay. Remote location with beautiful jungle surroundings, tons of birds to watch, private waterfalls (very remote and beautiful) and river access, and lots of wildlife (lizards, frogs, iguanas, no monkeys though). It was a great place to "get away" from the busyness of Quepos and just relax. Deb and Peter helped us cater our vacation to exactly what we wanted right down to the canyoneering, food, and transportation. Peter was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and flora and gave us a private tour of the place. One word of caution is that you are VERY remote ... we happen to like that! You get to experience the beauty and serenity of Costa Rica without the people. The house was very large (could have easily fit the entire family here with all 5 kids) with beautiful screened walls and overhanging decks to eat and relax on. If you are "bug-a-phobic", the main bedroom even has a bug net that you can sleep in. Definitely a great little vacation spot if you are looking for a romantic get away or just a nice place to get away from it all.

Owner's Response: Thanks Chris.! You guys fit like a glove! It was a pleasure to help you plan your trip. The greatest part about just booking one group at a time here, is that we are able to individually customize each trip according to what people need. It really enjoyable because the nicest people seem to find us! Best to you all.
