About the property

4 / 5 Bed , 4 /5 bath stunning villa with Ocean view

This villa is perfectly situated in the heart of Manuel Antonio, just 5 minutes to the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. From here you can dominate the whole area as this is probably one of the highest house in Manuel Antonio. Relax in a hammock on your covered balcony and enjoy pleasant sunsets and Pacific Ocean views. Alternatively wake up to a cup of Costa Rican coffee and watch the sun coming over the Mountains. This unique villa has tropical almond floors throughout the house and is blessed with the best natural light and breeze. This home has a large master bedroom with AC and king size bed and 3 other bedrooms one with queen size beds, Ac , fans and a private balcony . 2 of the bedrooms are smaller. There are 3 balconies to dominate the views all accessible from the living area via quadruple French doors. Should you need 5 bedrooms in Total , we have a guest house which is just a staircase away from the pool area which can only be rented to the same guests using this villa.

Amenities: : We have a pool and a 1000 square foot deck and BBQ which appears to be the 'hang out area' as there is a perfect combination of sun and shade. We also have the possibility of a chef, so for a very competitive rate , enjoy dinner by the pool. Enjoy life as it is suppose to be.

1000 square foot deck ,32-in TV, DVD, Hammocks, outdoor furniture, AC, Fans, Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, cleaning service, Tel, safe, Parking area for 2 cars, Alarm.

Activities: : Canopy safari, diving, sunset sails and dolphin watch, surfing, sport fishing, and all the best activities in Costa Rica.

Area: : 3 km from the beach, 100 yards from the closest convenient store, within walking distance to 3 good restaurants, Internet cafes, drugstore and a great coffee shop. 3 km to downtown Quepos.

We are not Located in a Gated community but in a neighborhood with other rental villas. The area is safe but at night the street lighting is poor. We do not recommend this villa for groups who want to be in a resort or for families with very young children as the bedrooms are spread apart for privacy. Be aware we also have stairs which may not be ideal for certain guests.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed at Casa Alta with a group of 8 other friends for a week and it was everything I could have asked for in a vacation villa. It was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Even with that many people, I never felt crowded and had plenty of options to find a quiet space when I wanted one. The manager was very accommodating and checked in with us regularly to see if we wanted or needed anything. The housekeeper was very sweet and took great care of us and the villa when she came by. My favorite amenity was the pool and the patio area - it provided the perfect gathering spot for the entire group as well as a great spot to sit and watch the sunrise or the monkeys who visited a few times. Honestly there were no real negatives - the shower temperature was hard to control (hot and cold) but duck in at the right moment, take care of business, and it's fine. There are two hammocks on the upper level and I would have to say they take a close second to the pool. The villa is close to grocery stores (one of which also delivers to the villa) and within walking distance of several good restaurants and shops. I highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a nice, comfortable place to stay while visiting Manuel Antonio.

Perfect House and Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of 9 adults, and this house was perfect!

Natalia was very helpful in assisting with our transportation, arranging for the air conditioning to be fixed in one of the bedrooms, and arranging a tour.

Dona Flor, the house keeper was also AMAZING! She came every day and cleaned- the beds were always made, trash taken out, and clean towels. It was so appreciated.

The house was plenty big for all of us. We rented the guest house in addition, but did not need it. The master bedroom had an additional full bed in it that was not even used. The house had everything we needed- pots and pans, a dishwasher, internet, guidebooks, air-conditioning, and clean linens. The view was beautiful and the outdoor spaces were perfect places to relax. The location was also perfect. It is about a 2 minute walk to a bus station that for 40cents can bring you to the beaches/national park in one direction, and the town of Quepos and main bus terminal the other direction. There were a lot of restaurants, stores and activities that were very easily accessible.

Thank you for everything. We were sad to leave.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 women stayed at the villa in early May and had a great time. The villa is located high on the hill and has the best view. Everything was close by, beach, stores and restaurants. Natalia helped put all our tours together and was just awesome answering all our questions. Cant wait to go back!!

House was best part!

  • 4 of 5

This house was really nice. We did enjoy our stay at Casa Alta. The pool was amazing and we used it everyday. It was extremely hot and humid in Costa Rica so you need a pool. The beds are comfortable and the maid does a great job. One day we had monkeys come visit on the patio. We loved the house but it isn't a tranquil place to stay. However, this is Costa Rica and it probably isn't going to be tranquil anywhere. It was mango season and the mangos fall off the tree and hit the metal roof all night long. Also, there are a lot of barking dogs in the neighborhood. I did feel safe and loved the people here. The deep sea fishing was excellent if you are here for fishing. If you go to the national park, know that it is about a mile or so walk to get to the beach area. Also, if you are a smoker, you literally can't smoke anywhere in Costa Rica. We had one smoker with us and this was definitely a problem. Thank goodness he could smoke outside at the house. It was our refuge. We did have the power go out twice while staying at the house but they had us back up right away. The only bad thing that I could say about the house is they need soap in the showers. If you rent this place bring soap. The beds are super comfortable. There are some ants but you are in the jungle. Ij would recommend not renting a car. It is very hard to drive here. THis house is in an area that doesn't look too good but it is safe and grocery store is walkable but nothing else really is. We took taxis, which worked out good. We also had Natalie set up the snorkeling cruise for us. That was really fun. Not very good snorkeling but the boat ride is amazing and the food and drinks were good. We really enjoyed that. Loved the house but probably will not return to Costa Rica.

Owner's Response: Hi Donna, Thank you for your feedback. I made a note of the soap suggestion and we will have hand soap in all the bathrooms. Also the Mango tree has now been cut back ...we appreciate when guests tell us what we can improve on.

Perfect for Groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Casa Alta. We were a group of seven adults and there was plenty of room for everybody. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom and the master bedroom had an extra bed in addition to the king, so there was plenty of space for us. The outdoor areas were great and we used the pool every day. The house is within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, and the bus to take you to the beach and national park. We cooked a few times and the kitchen had everything we needed. Natalia was very helpful in setting up transportation from the airport and activities in the area.

Car: recommended

The villa is located close to the world class beaches and the nearby mountains. Beach lovers will be delighted with the snorkeling, diving, kayaking and swimming in warm water. You can access the national park from the main beach where you can discover many species of wildlife whilst hiking through the clearly marked trails. For those who require a little more adrenaline we have many tours from the Quepos / Manuel Antonio area ATV tour, Zip line canopy tour, white water rafting, mangrove tours, sport fishing and horseback riding.

Ask our house managers for activities off the beaten path such as waterfall tours , great hikes (rainmaker). If you want to fish , the marina is just 4 miles from the villa
