About the property

One Bedroom One Bath comfy for 2 home in beautiful Manuel Antonio Costa Rica

This fully equipped cottage is located within a gated, walled, private property right in the heart of the lovely village of Manuel Antonio. Less than 5 minutes to our white sandy beach and renowned Manuel Antonio National Park, this comfortable villa offers a small ocean view and is surrounded by plants and foliage

Set in one and a half acres of flora and fauna, you are guaranteed daily visits from Monkeys, Birds, Iguanas, Butterflies, Sloths and other furry and not so furry critters! The villa is centrally located half way between the town of Puerto Quepos and the beaches of Manuel Antonio. It is also within walking distance of many of the area's finest dining and shopping locations Cozy Manuel Antonio Cottage also has access to an enormous private pool and large pool area, with a nice walk through plants and trees down to it!!. Spend your days at the beach, and then cool off at the pool before watching the sunset over drinks on your front porch.

The villa is ideal for nature lovers and family vacations, with lots of space to explore in the jungle. Car rental is not necessary as you are less than 2 minutes from the bus stop where you can catch the bus to the beach (60 cents each way) or if you’d rather hop in a taxi, there is a taxi rank (of sorts!) just round the corner ($4-$8 any journey).

The home has a nice sized kitchen with a dining nook

The kitchen has a microwave oven, blender, coffee maker, toaster, full gas stove all utensils, pots, pans & plates etc. " La Niña is air-conditioned( Bedroom, but keeps the whole place cool!!!!!!!

TV with a DVD Player (movies, for kids too). There is also a stereo with Cd/Radio I Pod

Costa Rica's finest National Park and white sandy beaches are only five minutes away. Quepos offers some of the best sport fishing in the world. Exciting horseback riding, canopy tours, white water rafting, guided tours on bikes, ATVs, parasailing, diving, snorkeling, and some of the prettiest beaches in the world.

Super comfortable, great value and great location, what more could you ask for?

Why Jennifer Faile chose Manuel Antonio

This Cottage in a fabulously central location. Less than three minutes to grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, take out, taxis, bus stops, and a quick 5 minutes to the wonderful white sandy beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park

What makes this house unique

Great location, close to everything, come through the gate and feel as if you have entered a private green estate.

Pool is outstanding and huge and offers a washroom changing room .

-We ask guests not to use our laundry services as our Costa Rican machines can be delicate. However, if you do have any personal items that you wish to have washed, please let us know and our maids would be happy to do it for you, free of charge.( Don't forget to tip 🤗)

Everything you need -a full kitchen, bedroom, living space & bathroom -has AC & fans! Centrally located to everything & a car is not needed. You can easily hop in a cab it take the bus or simply walk to all of the bars, restaurants & beaches! Manuel Antonio Nattional Park is beautiful & will not disappoint - we saw snakes, sloths,monkeys! The water is beautiful there & bluer than the local beach. Enjoy & Pura Vida!

Excellent place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding place to stay. I have no reservations in recommending this property to anyone. The pool is beautiful and very large. The property is well maintained. The owner greeted us upon arrival showed us the house. Pete was very friendly and helpful. I contacted him twice by phone, during our stay, and he responded immediately. The pool is a very short walk from the house. The location is close to the national park and the town of Quepos. If you are lucky, you will see monkey, but you will certainly hear them on the property. This is a great place to stay for a family. I would think 2 adults and 2 children would be quite comfortable. As for adults only, I would not suggest more than 4, as there is one large bedroom and a convertible couch. The only caveat to consider is there is no view of the ocean from the house or pool, as the property has considerable vegetation surrounding it. This for me was a plus, as I had views of the ocean from the beaches in and outside of the park. I would certainly look to stay at this property on any return trip to this area of Costa Rica and would recommend it to anyone visiting Manuel Antonio.

Owner's Response: Thanks again Marc for your kind words, I do think four people ( 2 adults and 2 kids,) depending on age might be a too crowded but three has worked fine. Again thanks, hope to see you again one day. Cheers Pete

Great Experience at Pete's Place

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we stayed at Pete's Place! Pete is very friendly and welcoming while the property is beautiful and lush. It provides the best of both worlds because it feels so secluded and private, but you're still in town and close to civilization. It was like being in the heart of the jungle with a spectacular pool, wifi, and air conditioning.

The house is clean and secure- we never felt unsafe or uncomfortable on the property. There's also a lot of wildlife right outside your door. We didn't encounter anything scary, thank goodness, but we did see an agouti, several geckos, lot of birds, and heard howler monkeys from a distance while at the pool. Pete also has a couple of dogs that are very sweet and friendly. Its easy to get to the main road (its just a little ways down a hill) and it is within walking distance of several restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want a more genuine experience than a hotel or resort. Pete's Place is a great spot to relax and enjoy Costa Rica.

A stay in paradise

  • 4 of 5

Our recent family stay at Casa Linda was wonderful. Though the accommodations are a bit tired, this home provided us with everything we needed for our stay. The house is within 10-15 minutes walking distance to an ATM, good grocery shopping and great restaurants - all relatively level walking too. The home easily accommodated our family of 5, with 3 teenagers. As advertised, the walls in the main house do not reach floor to ceiling, allowing the air conditioning from the main living area to filter into the two bedrooms and main bath – the air conditioning worked wonderfully well and was an absolutely necessity during our stay. The master bedroom and bath are separated from the main house by an outdoor alcove so this home would not likely be suitable for a family with small children. The mountain views from the rear deck were breathtaking and just the tonic we needed to de-stress from our busy lives. Watching the light fade from the hills as the bats came out to make their nightly rounds was magical – I could easily have spent an entire week just sitting there watching the cloud formations change as they met the mountain landscape. The pool is exceptional - be prepared for the 121 or so steps up and down - definitely worth it when you get there! A cold beer by the pool was our ritual wind-down after a busy day of white-water rafting, touring the park, taking in a catamaran tour and otherwise lounging on the beach. Having a concierge service available to us was an amazing perk. Hazel was available almost 24/7 to answer any questions we had, offer advice on things to do and expertly facilitated all our excursions - her assistance was invaluable and went a long way to make our stay even more enjoyable. We will definitely be making a return trip to Costa Rica!
