Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and truly enjoyed staying at the Bali Tree House. Dennis was great and kept the pool and grounds clean and ready, as well as turning on lights for us at night while we were out. Evelia was wonderful and did a very good job cleaning each was a pleasure to have her working there during our stay. We had minimal contact with Angie but she was warm and friendly, letting us know if we needed anything she was a phone call away.

We look forward to visiting again in the future.

Thanks and Pura Vida!

An Amazing Vacation Location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a perfect location for active people. The house itself is a beautiful open concept, with 3 large bedrooms on the lower level. The pool and hot tub are private and taken care of by Dennis every day.

If you like the beach, it is moments away, and plenty of restaurants are close by.

Our concierge set up our excursions and our trip was smooth.

We wouldn't hesitate to come back!

What a spectacular property! The Bali Tree House and Manuel Antonio as a whole exceeded our expectations. It was our first visit to CR and I dare say it is one of the best places I've ever visited. The beaches, the wildlife, the culture, the people, the food - all outstanding. The bali tree house is off the beaten path but still conveniently located, close to restaurants, shops and beaches. The design of the home is incredible, offering amazing views from every room in the house. It is clean, spacious and well appointed. We were visited on the back deck by both white faced and titi monkeys, an experience I will never forget!! Our concierge, housekeeper and grounds keeper all helped to make this an incredible vacation. The pool and hot tub were a huge bonus and were used every day of our stay. I only wish we could have stayed longer! Only warning, there are steep steps to and from the home. We were met at the home when we arrived and as well as when we left, so carrying luggage up and down was not an issue. Quite frankly, after the amount of delicious fresh seafood and mojitos we consumed, the steps provided much welcomed and needed exercise! I can't say enough about this place. I can't wait to go back. I echo the prior review with regard to Alex the cab driver. He's the best!!

Beautiful, Comfortable, and Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

This was simply a fantastic home in which to stay in this amazing, wonderful country. Our first time here, we fell in love with the country, this Manuel Antonio town, and its people. And to have a beautiful place to stay and sleep only added to our experience.

Hazel, the concierge, met us when we arrived; she and the caretaker helped us with our luggage; and then she showed us around the property. She promised and delivered any help we needed with activities, transportation, places to dine, etc.

While she provided us with a list of taxi drivers to use that she trusts, we found another that we would like to recommend: Alex P. Cell: 8559-4286. He was honest, kind, gave us great recommendations, charged us fairly, and was always there when we called. He was great to us.

I highly recommend Manuel Antonio to visit while in Costa Rica and this home to stay. You will not regret it.

Manuel Antonio Gem in the Jungle not far from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Too many superlatives! We only wish we could have stayed longer. So glad we went off the beaten path to find something other than a hotel or resort. This "tree house" is a beautiful, well appointed pool home with sliding glass doors and decks all around that let guests commune with nature and the animals and birds in the jungle. Close to town and close to the beach, our stay was truly an adventure. This home is great for families and/or friends who are in great shape or energetic who can navigate steep steps to get into and out of the house. Once there, it is out of this world. In just two days, we were visited by toucans, a sloth, and squirrel monkeys. This home is beautifully maintained and lacks nothing. The property manager, caretaker and housekeeper were the best and tended to our every request and inquiry. I highly recommend this fabulous property and only hope we can get back there again.

Nice but beware

  • 3 of 5

Nice property. Great location. Only serious complaint is no AC on main floor. Based on the owners promise in April on this site to install AC, we didn't expect an issue. We are not an AC family but boy was it uncomfortable. The owners will deflect with comments about breezes and temperate climate but there are enough comments on this site to provide you fair warning.

Additionally the AC units in the bedroom couldn't be controlled adequately. The master bed AC was either full on or off. And in general the house is "tired" and in need of some maintenance/replacements.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff, Thank you for following up on your stay with us at the Bali Tree House. We loved having your group stay with us and were glad that you opted to stay an extra night. While the open air feel of the Bali Tree House can lend itself to ocean breezes, we've recognized that some guests prefer air conditioning within the entire home and we're working with the homeowners to include this for future guests. As always, we appreciate your honest feedback and welcome your return visit to the beautiful beaches of Manuel Antonio with a 10% discount off of any of our villas. Sincerely, The 2CRVR Team

Amazing House and Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a several night stay at the Bali Tree House. The property, the location, the service, the natural beauty all exceeded our expectations. We saw howler monkeys and the white face monkeys as well as a toucan. The monkeys put on quite a show one morning over coffee and the same evening over happy hour. It was amazing.

The house is gorgeous and as nice as these pictures online are, it is much more beautiful in person. We spent so much time out on the decks and out in the pool, hot tub and pool deck.

The location is in one of the best neighborhoods in Manuel Antonio, although down a dirt road. You are near several great restaurants, grocery and a healthy walk to the beach, which is amazing. As you approach the beach, you are walking down a path lined with flowers - it's paradise.

The bedrooms are so private from the upstairs area - perfect for groups of friends or family traveling together. You cannot go wrong with this house or location - and the value is excellent.

We loved it and can't wait to return!

Car: recommended

Manuel Antonio can be reached by a 20 minute flight from San Jose Airport (Juan Santamaria), or a beautiful 2-1/2 hour drive over mountains, through coffee plantations, down the coast through palm fields. The many small towns along the way gives one a great feel for the rural countryside, which is the true Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio is a bohemian mixture of people and places. Restaurants range from simple to five star quality. Great shopping for local crafts and art. This is not a 'surf' town like Tamarindo to the north. Lots of incredible live music. The beaches of Manuel Antonio are world class and the area is truly a tropical paradise.

Other Activities: Canopy tours, rafting, kayaking, butterfly farm
