I rented this home with my husband, Dad and one of my best friends. All three of them had not been to Costa Rica and so I was excited to take them there. When we drove up to the house after a 2.5 hour drive from the airport, we were welcomed to the most wonderful villa I have seen. Estela was there waiting with homemade guacamole and yummy drinks to tour us around the house, show us how to work lights, air, etc. Our master bedroom was just the most amazing room, bed and view there was. From the minute we sat down for a cocktail outside by the pool I was sucked into relaxing and enjoying Manuel Antonio. The kitchen (for my friend who used to be a chef especially) was so well equipped, everything you need to cook amazing meals. We had chosen to have Chelsea Brandau (and her sous chef David) cook for us 4 nights and 4 lunches and her food was incredible. AND wow can she bake a cake!
The villa was really the most amazing villa we have stayed in. We loved the maid service and the care taker who swept all common areas every day and made sure that the home was pristine the whole time we were there. I felt like a celebrity all week we were there.
Estela and Kent were available for anything we needed!
If you are looking for a lovely villa, great service, wonderful pool and breathtaking views of Manuel Antonio this is the place. Oh and the bed was soooooo comfy!
