The VP Private Resort (aka 'Villa Pelicano') is your own private, 'mini resort' located in central Manuel Antonio. Situated on over 5 acres of sculpted gardens, VP has an ocean vista that inspires poetry. The entire resort faces due west, and captures amazing sunsets year-round. Fifty miles of coastline stretch towards the horizon, and the dramatic mountains rise up in the distance, hazed by the ocean air. The bordering, emerald rainforest skirts down to the water--a symphony of wildlife. Monkeys scamper through the mango trees, and toucans sing their sedative songs from the nearby cecropias.
The table has been set--but dinner has yet to be served: VP comes with a private chef, prepared to cook up your favorite dishes, and also introduce you to some savory Costa Rican cuisine. Also included are a concierge, daily housekeeping, night security, and even Jorge the gardener, ready to serve you a fresh 'pipa' from the surrounding palms. Within the surrounding gardens are mango trees, banana plants, starfruit, papaya trees, citrus, orchids, and a multitude of other tropical flora.
When you arrive, you'll be greeted by your concierge with a cool refreshment made of tropical fruit. She will also assist you with any transportation, tours or other services you like. Included any week-long rental also includes is a free Vacation Buggy Welcome Tour--to help orient you to the hotspots and hidden escapes in Manuel Antonio.
VP consists of the Main Villa, with 4 ocean-view master bedrooms on the main floor, each with king-sized beds and private baths--and two guest rooms downstairs, one with a queen, and one with three queens. The main terrace wraps around three-quarters of the Main Villa, and is ample for large events. The upper story faces the open ocean, and has an open area for spa treatments or yoga. Above the main villa is the 'Casita', consisting of two bedrooms and a kitchenette, as well as an outdoor, ocean-view area with hammocks and a outdoor sitting area.
With a full-time staff, 5 acres, and complete privacy--it's Manuel Antonio's ONLY private resort. Ideal for large families, groups of friends, yoga retreats, weddings and other events, VP also has a flat, open beach property located right in the middle of Manuel Antonio's primary public beach which can be incorporated!
You've worked hard all year--now it's time to lay back and let our warm, friendly staff take care of you!
