Pure heaven on earth! Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure where to start, I have nothing but great things to say about our experience at Casa Tranquilidad! Amy was amazing, from booking the house, to arranging excursions, booking (and changing) ground transportation to our needs, etc. Amy and the staff are 100% full service and made us feel so welcome. We were tired and frustrated from our travels, but arrival at the house helped the stress melt away immediately. The house itself is in great condition, beautiful, and clean. We absolutely loved having so much fresh air breeze through the house. So many places to nap, relax, read, and cuddle with my hubby. The "cool" tub, the pool and the backyard are my favorite! We truly felt like we were alone in the jungle... except for the adorable sloth on the tree in the back yard, the white faced monkeys that paid us a visit, and the various Tucans that stopped to say hello.

Casa Tranquilidad will now be our go-to destination when we need to get away from the rat-race of the city!

Great place to stay. Great service.

  • 4 of 5

Extended family of 4 20-somethings and four adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The balcony and pool overlook the rainforest and wildlife exhibits from sloths to monkeys. Tucans decorate the trees and an iguana lives in the gutters of the house. House was very comfortable with plenty of space to be alone or together. Kitchen has nicely equipped although watch the water from the ice maker--We'ld put a towel there if we stayed again.

The house is away from the city which means a long walk, having a car or a taxi, which to us was worth it to have the solitude on quiet time with the animals. The house staff were very helpful and obviously concerned that we had a good time. Hazel, the concierge was also helpful We didn't need here to schedule tours but she was very helpful after the robbery.

Hazel had warned us to use the alarm, which we did, but the windows downstairs were not alarmed. A nephew sleeping in the game area without air conditioning opened the window for some air and fell asleep. In the night someone entered, probably through the window, didn't bother us, but picked up an Iphone, Nike anything, cool shoes, a Fitbit, etc. We never heard anything. A hassle but not the end of the world. If you stay in this delightful place do keep it locked up tight at night as Hazel will tell you to do....

We would definitely stay here again. Overall a great experience.

Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5

My overall experience was great from the time of booking to my departure. The great thing about this rental, is that you not only get a beautiful home in a great location but you also get a personal vacation advisor . I had the pleasure of working with Amy, Hazel and Jonathan which where all great. They made it easy to book the home and also helped me book my car rental and activities. The home is in a great location just minutes from shops and restaurants. The jacuzzi and pool along with the game room allowed for all 12 of my family members to have a great time Together! I would highly recommend this rental and I hope to visit again.

Beautiful property, we had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is large, and it backs up to the national park. Every day we had multiple troops of monkeys in the trees, as well as iguanas and toucans. There is a small ocean view. The pool and jacuzzi are kept clean, and it is larger than it looks in the photos. The house could hold many people, and there are many places to relax and gather. It is outside of the traffic of the city, so it is free from traffic and city noise. The worst noise was howler monkeys early in the morning, but that is part of the experience. The cleaning lady Myra is very, very nice, she will clean even your clothes for you, and there are maintenance men that are very friendly. Hazel, the concierge, will help you with your fun stuff. Great place for multiple families/kids/teens. You might want to bring some toys for the beach/pool.

Downside- the power went out several times, but it was only briefly. Because it is so hot in that part of the country, only the bedrooms get really cool with the a/c. You need to drive to get to a store/restaurant/things to do. The stuff in Manuel Antonio is higher priced/more Americanized. If you drive to Quepos about 10 min down the hill, you will find a Tico town with more reasonable prices/more authentic stuff. We recommend Soda Sanchez, which the cleaning lady Myra recommended.

Nice place to stay and Geralyn was great!

  • 4 of 5

Geralyn met us to show us the way to the house, showed us around and picked up some groceries before we arrived. The house has just about everything you need to have a comfortable stay. One thing which should be looked at is a leaking showerhead in one of the bathrooms. Other than that, we enjoyed the house and surrounding area which is close to all the restaurants.

We went to Costa Rica to fish for 3 days and on the first morning, our car wouldn't start. I called Geralyn at 6:30 in the morning for help. She arranged for a taxi to pick us up, worked with the car rental company to get the car running and followed up with us to make sure everything was ok. She turned what could have been a stressful situation into no problem. Great customer service and thanks again Geralyn!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the house justice, it was more spacious and beautiful. The first night we got ransacked by monkeys so be sure to bring all snacks inside the house. There were a pair of toucans that visited every morning as we enjoyed our coffee by the pool. We weren't aware of this but we had a daily house cleaner, excluding Sunday. Allowing us to come home to clean house, clean towels and if needed, clean laundry. The house is very secluded and secure; however the road to the house can be a little rough but it's a very short drive. Geralyn was very helpful when we needed suggestions or had any questions. I will be staying here in the future and recommend this house and vacation group to anyone.
