Best vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Diamante! The house is perfect for multiple generations - our guests were ages 11 to 80. The older people stayed on the top floor, since it's a lot of steps to get to the bottom floor. We saw monkeys and sloths each day at the house (and a bat inside that was quickly removed by the wonderful security guard, who is there all night). Chris is not only a terrific manager, making sure that all of our needs were taken care of - he is also a terrific chef and made us 3 memorable dinners. The housekeepers were there all day and made sure that the laundry was done and the house was impeccable. It was an 8 minute walk up hill to the restaurants, supermarket and pharmacy. We especially enjoyed Emilios and Milagro. The walk to the beach was down a gravel road about 15 minutes, and a long up hill hike (but people were willing to give rides up the hill!) Every single person we met in CR was so nice! Unfortunately, we also found out that doctors make house calls, which was a nice bonus. There are beach towels at the house, as well as soap and shampoo in the showers. We went on the 10 in 1 zip lining tour, ATV, white water rafting, guided tour of Baru Nature Park and night tour of insects/reptiles/frogs right in Manuel Antonio. It was a great house to use as our base for exploring.

Fantastic house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently returned from a 8 nights stay over Xmas with three other families. It was fantastic! The house is near many good restaurants. We walked down to the beach almost everyday and enjoyed amazing, yet different sunset every day. Kids love the pool, and we bbq'd near the pool a few nights. All sorts of animals came to visit! all three kinds of monkeys, many birds, sloths(even baby sloth!), tucans. We loved being on the top deck and were able to see so many animals. The maids were great and keep the house spotless! We enjoyed rafting, ziplining at the waterfall, and parasailing.

The only issue we had is with the internet and phone. It's not until the day before we were leaving, we figured out that the phone and new optic cable were located in the laundry room, and the maids would turn off the power to the laundry room which turns off the local phone and the internet. In addition, the laundry room is basically the worst place to put the router as you can only get the signal from the gym - it's wasted. We suffered really slow internet using the old connection for a whole week, and had to use our US cell phone to order take out. Other than this technical glitch, the stay was perfect.

Owner's Response: Very pleased to hear you could enjoy the home and that you got to see all the different animals Manuel Antonio has to offer right from the balcony! This house is definitely unique! You Forgot to mention in your review that the house holds probably the Best view Manuel Antonio has to offer. Regarding the internet connection, we kindly offered the fiber optic connection not knowing this was going to be an issue. The fiber optic modem is for private use only and this is why its located in the laundry next to the owners apartment. This is why there is no fiber optic connection throughout the whole house. The fiber optic connection is used to transfer private data so this is the reason we keep it private. Chris, our manager, thought he was doing the group a favor by letting the guests use the fiber optics. The house has cable internet, 1.5 mega throughout the whole house the problem was that this group was a group of 16 people and all of them with a laptop and phone. This is 30plus devices which definitely affects the speedy connection... Otherwise the internet connection works perfectly fine. Too bad the group didn't depend more on Chris so they didn't have to use their international phone.

Beautiful house, with incredible views, surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family absolutely loved Casa Diamante. The views over the dense forest and the ocean are breathtaking. Sitting on the deck was a pleasure, watching all the wildlife come and go. We saw a large family of squirrel monkeys, toucans, woodpeckers, beautiful butterflies and much more. There is also apparently a sloth that lives in the area, but we didn't manage to spot her. Chris, the concierge and property manager, was great. Very accommodating and helpful with all our questions and requests. Thank you for a wonderful experience! I love Manueal Antonio and Casa Diamante

An amazing view to wake up to from the main floor of the house!

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a great location with walk to beach and shopping. we had the pleasure seeing monkeys , toucans , and sloths at this house . The home is spilt to three levels with lots of privacy for each guest. We all had our seperate entrances and levels but always hung out together in the top floor to have dinner and play games and just relax. The view from that floor is just amazing! One of a kind . Our concierge Chris was amazing and super helpful with everything we needed . He made the stay even better. Can't wait to go back.

Awesome vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

I didn't think this would be the case, but the pictures actually do not do the villa justice!!! What a great vacation we had over Christmas 2016! The house is in a beautiful setting, overlooking the Pacific and surrounded by the jungle. While you can see a lot of incredible wildlife at nearby Manuel Antonio park, we saw some of the most amazing things right from the poolside! From sloths, to 3 different types of monkeys, toucans, and a huge variety of birds ... all while floating around in the pool. There are lots of good restaurants around and a couple of small supermarkets on top of the hill. The path near the house that heads to the beach is steep (especially going back up), but it brings you to the best end of the beach where there are great waves to play in, and palm trees to relax under. I won't deny that there was a lot of walking up steep hills, but using the pools or the ocean to cool off in is just awesome! You can also avoid climbing back up to the house from the beach by catching a local bus (for 60 cents) up to the top of the hill, then walking down to the villa. We did this when we were feeling lazy :) . Chris, the concierge, was super helpful and one of the friendliest Costa Ricans you'll ever meet. I highly recommend this villa. We were a large family group, and it was nice to have this villa as our starting point for adventures in the area, and for some quality family time.
