This is the third year that we have met friends for a planned week vacation at Casa Antonio. The spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and pristine Manuel Antonio Bay is front and center from the beautiful villa. Mono titi and white faced monkeys often visited the palm trees and lush flowers and foliage that surround this villa and its swimming pool. Many birds can be seen in the early morning including toucans, parrots, kiskadees, and bananaquits. Rooms and baths are quite comfortable, clean, and tastefully decorated with beautiful artwork. A fully functional kitchen is available to cook your own meals and to enjoy dinner on the deck while viewing the stunning sunset into waters of the Pacific Ocean. The Pool and villa are well taken care of and regular maid service is provided. We especially enjoyed the Pacific side of the villa which is floor to ceiling glass allowing sweeping vistas as if you could reach out and touch the water far below. Casa Antonio offered spacious common area for all our friends to get together for conversation and dining yet it afforded private space to retreat to at night. We really enjoyed swimming after dark in the lighted pool while looking up at the stars. We could walk down to the beach or catch a taxi or bus after a short walk to the top of the hill. It is close to the Manuel Antonio National Park entrance and village/beach as well as to restaurants and shops on the road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio village. We will be back again next year!
