Guestbook comments from the manager

Rebecca was an extremely gracious host and Casa Kaylen was perfect. Breezy and cool, plenty of space, close to everything we needed for the trip and each beach. Even the futon couch was comfortable. We used the local buses or walked almost everywhere we went. Right from the beginning Rebecca went above and beyond, helping us make travel arrangements with the buses and she was very flexible with our arrival and departure. She even had a bowl of delicious fruit, water, coffee and other necessities - far more than I ever expected. She was very welcoming and attentive. Thank you again Rebecca for sharing your slice of paradise!

Great view

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this typical Tico bungalow. The view is beautiful. We could see so much vegetation and the ocean. The yard is lovely and filled with animals. We went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of birds. We even saw a sloth just down the road. The outdoor shower is great for rinsing off sandy feet. The house was clean and met our needs. It looks like the pictures posted. We had to get comfortable with the lack of glass windows however having the screens provided wonderful breezes and made us feel part of the landscape. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen has everything we needed. There are plenty of towels and two beach chairs. The house is secure with an alarm, safe and good lighting. The internet would go on and off which required us to keep resetting it. Our host Rebecca is wonderful. She has a full book with the house information and local tours and activities. She arranged several guided tours at the National Forest and Butterfly Garden. She told us the best place to park for the beach and where to eat. The house is centrally located and stores, restaurants and pharmacy are within walking distance. This is also a draw back since the road is very noisy and traffic continued until about 10 pm as well as the music at the bar across the street. We learned to adjust. Costa Rica is a beautiful country. We really enjoyed our visit.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Like everyone else said, this was a wonderful place to stay! Great location, clean, friendly and helpful owners, secure, private and equipped with everything you'd need. We loved watching the squirrel monkeys right outside the house playing in the mango tree :) Just what we were looking for!

Great place and great people!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Casa Kaylen for 3 nights in July/August. We really had a great time! The house was very well equipped (kitchen well equipped, lots of towels, fans, beach stuff like cooler and chairs...). The place was also really well secured. We didn't have to worry about anything when we left the place.

Rebecca was also a gem! She told us what to look out for at the beach and at the park, which restaurant she recommended, etc.

The house itself was really well place (5min by car to the beach and park, walking distance to a small market, cafes, restaurants, etc.).

Rebecca and her husband also helped us out during our stay because we unfortunately lost our rental car keys in the park... What a nightmare. They gave us a ride back to the house and help us out since the house keys were in the car.

They were great!!! The place was great, the view was great and Rebecca and her husband were great also!

I recommended Casa Kaylen without hesitation!

Fantastic Bungalow in Manuel Antonio!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked at 3 night stay at Casa Kaylen, for our Manuel Antonio portion of our Costa Rica trip. Luckily, we were able to add an extra night on to our trip, and arrived a day early! Best decision ever! We loved the bungalow, it suited our needs perfectly. The house is very charming, inside and out...the photos are true to life. The grounds are gorgeous and the bungalow has a great open design, and is nicely decorated, perfect touches as far as furnishings and artwork.... with everything you'd need for a nice vacation in paradise. We really enjoyed the charm of the bungalow, as well as the beautiful tropical grounds (such amazing plants! like from a dr seuss book!) and the view of the ocean. The house was very secure, as others have mentioned...you will not be worried about your valuables and electronics if you lock up accordingly! There are two beaches about a 20-30 minute walk from the house...very hilly, as is everything in MA, but doable for able-bodied people. Only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, a bank and a mini-grocery store....the house is perfectly located. Monkeys occasionally visit in the trees, which is very fun! Some car/truck traffic noise from the nearby road...it was noted in a previous review, but it was just louder than I was expecting! Overall, we had a great stay and a fantastic vacation! The only thing it lacks would be a hammock (or a hot tub) on the deck overlooking the forest and ocean! Just a super place, great memories, felt like we had our own little slice of paradise. Thank you!!

Would definitely recommend this place for couples or a very small family of 3, 4 would be tight. I highly recommend taking advantage of the kitchen facilities in the house, and maybe stock up on breakfast/lunch supplies, as the restaurants/cafes in MA are VERY expensive!

Great Property Manager!

  • 4 of 5

We were in Manuel Antonio for a wedding and stayed at Casa Kaylen for a full week. Rebecca, the property manager, was absolutely great! She picked us up at the airport in Quepos, gave us great recommendations about restaurants and activities, and was very responsive to anything that we might have needed. Any issues that we encountered were handled promptly and it was an absolute pleasure doing business with her. The house is very conveniently located and is perfect for a couple looking for a bit of a getaway. The amenities are simple, but all you need in order to enjoy a great time in Costa Rica!

Great spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

Location!!! Just around the corner from great restaurants, cafes, and bars. Truly a unique experience for adventure seekers, as this house is Costa Rica at its best. Playa Espadilla and Manuel Antonio National Park are both just a short drive from the house, but can be walked if need be. There's also a bus that takes you there, and runs about every 20 minutes.
