Beautiful house on a Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house! It's perfect for family groups. Everyone has their bedroom with private bathroom so you still have your own space in the house. The living area and terrace is great and from their you have an amazing view. Every morning we saw ara's flying over the house and lots of monkeys around the property. Do make sure you don't leave food in the kitchen because the monkeys will steel it.

Fabulous week at Manakin!

  • 5 of 5

All 12 of us love love LOVED our week at the fabulous Villa Manakin. We had privacy when we needed it, and a fun-filled communal experience when we wanted it. The pool was wonderful. (Thanks so much for providing the rafts we asked for!) The 4 p.m. visits from the local monkeys were a treat. The meal cooked in the villa one night by two local chefs was sooo delicious. Honestly, we were so pleased with our stay here. If you're a large group, book it! You won't be disappointed.

a week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Manakin Villa. The wildlife and views from the patio were gorgeous. The staff were kind and attentive. We had four couples at our retreat, and the home accommodated us all beautifully. A close drive to Manuel Antonio Park and the attractions of Quepos and the Marina.

Excellent Retreat House!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa to host a couples retreat of eight people. The staff was wonderful, making sure we had everything we needed. Hats off especially to Marcella, in the office and Richard the owner. The views were spectacular. The wildlife is amazing. We were enchanted daily by monkeys, (keep all your food put away)! A sloth, lizards and flocks of birds also kept us entertained. The lovely pool was a great place to relax, we even taught some of our sessions there. It is fairly private, although you can hear the neighboring villas.

Quepos is very close and don't miss the farmer's market. Manuel Antonio is a 15 minute drive or taxi ride away. We will definitely be going back. We also spent one night in another smaller villa, Villa Macaw, that was perfect for our two couples.

Partners in Paradise Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location near Quepos bay near marina and Manuel Antonio Park. We were there for a week with three other couples, and each had there own separate air conditioned room within the villa. The main floor was very open with kitchen, dining and living room. Large sliding class "walls" could be opened to the swimming pool and large back deck overlooking Quepos bay. Since the villa is positioned on the hillside, the deck is at tree top level, and you can see the monkeys swinging from branch to branch on a daily basis. They even jump on to the deck sometimes to get a drink from the pool, or may even venture into the villa if you leave the doors open!

Service was excellent and very accommodating to our eclectic schedules. Hope to come back again next year.
