Why Kirk Wallace chose Manuel Antonio

This vacation home is very spacious, has a modern design, a private pool, and looks out into the jungle. We bought it as a quiet getaway from the bustle of the city. But it is a place close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants, bars, and other amenities.

What makes this house unique

PRIVACY, PRIVACY, PRIVACY! If you're looking for a unique, comfortable house to experience Costa Rica, then Casa Bosque Verde is the house for YOU. Get Away........Home.

Pura Vida!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic stay at Casa Bosque Verde and really enjoyed the house. It was so comfortable, beautiful, and accommodating.

Also, I'd like to stress that Antonio was phenomenal!!! He was so sweet, always available, and non-intrusive. We really appreciated having him on the property and enjoyed getting to know him. He made sure to take care of any needs we had and even took the time to practice Spanish with me:) We became good friends by the end of our stay.

We will definitely consider staying again on our next visit to CR.

Great house, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in Casa Bosque Verde in August 2017. We really enjoyed the home. The house is in a perfect location, half way between Manual Antonio and Quepos. We did not rent a car. The home was very close to great restaurants, markets, and public transportation. Os was very helpful with any questions and checked in on us from time to time via text. The house was very spacious and clean. The pool was great, plus we had several monkey visitors. We can't wait to go back.

Jungle setting in a modern comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We just spend 4 days and 3 night at the Casa Bosque Verde. Don Antonio and Os were a pleasure to deal with and took great care of us. Very attentive and nice. We really enjoyed getting to know Don Antonio and he was always there to help us with the doors and any questions we had! Os was super helpful finding out information for tours before we even got there and giving us some recommendations for places to eat and beaches to visit.

The transaction was smooth ad easy as well as the booking.

The house is really comfortable and we had everything we could ever think of needing. Clean and very modern. we enjoyed the porch and the hammock. It was so nice to lay in it in the evening or early in the morning and just listen to the sounds of nature that surround the house.

It was a short 5 minute drive to the Espadilla Beach and we had a wonderful time. Beautiful beach too. We even found some games in the house and had an intense game of Monopoly followed by some dominoes!

Thank you so much again for a wonderful stay. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Pura Vida!

wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Manuel Antonio. The home was very comfortable and we loved the location. We were in the middle of a neighborhood so we really felt like we experienced Costa Rica like a native. The grocery store is right down the street so buying food to bring home was easy. Os was great in setting up tours and guides and we really enjoyed our activities and excursions. Antonio was so kind in making sure we were taken care of in the home. We saw many monkeys and animals in the yard and had fun in the pool. There were lots of bugs but we expected that so it was fine. We rented a car for our family of five and liked that we parked behind a locked gate. We also walked a lot and used local transportation which was super easy. I would highly recommend this property.

Casa Bosque Verde is truly a gem. The property is a serene place that makes it easy to connect with family, relax and get into the beautiful and contagious spirit of Costa Rica, specifically Manual Antonio. The house is pristine and offers lush scenery and modern amenities. The Casa Bosque Verde Team to include, Os and Antonio were extremely accommodating and kind during our stay. The location of the property can't be beat. It's an easy walk to the grocery store and close to all the highlights in M.A. (our favorite was Playa Biensanz). Our flight was canceled on Wednesday and there we found ourselves, with our twin three-year old boys, back in the car and returning to M.A. We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Bosque Verde and highly recommend it.

Great house, EXCEllENT SERVICE!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, THANK YOU, for letting us stay in the house. It is a great place, very clean, well furnished, very good condition and distribution, and perfect location. Having your own pool made a huge difference.

The service was OUTSTANDING , from the contact person and the welcoming, to an unforgettable Antonio (in-property care taker). Don Antonio made a world of difference. Always there, always with a prompt solution and suggestion to every single detail. He is by far the biggest service asset you can have. Made us feel better than in a five star hotel.

Definitely looking forward to stay there in the future! Please, keep it up with the place and the service. THANK YOU again!

WOW the home location and concierge were AMAZING! Exceeded our expectations by far! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

For anyone wishing to travel to this area of Costa rica this rental is a must!

The location was amazing, the grocery store was at the end of the street, local buses and taxi right there.

Os the concierge was AMAZiNG setting up anything we needed. He is also really lovely as well as his wife Ellie. Antonio the caretaker with his dog mariposa made us feel completely safe and taken care of. Monkey action right in the back yard. Resident white bunny( who we names Harvey) came to visit and receive pets everyday. The home was much more beautiful then the pictures show, it was WOW WOW WOW I literally teared up when we walked in. Os was there with antonio to greet us and we immediately felt at home. We had a wonderful week the horse back riding and waterfall tour os organized for us was amazing. Our favorite day was trekking to the local beach biesanz. There we were welcomed by only locals and a makeshift bartender making the BEST cocktails while his brother in law bbq fresh tuna, beef tenderloin and burgers!

Presented 5 star style at alittle make shift table delivered to your beach spot!

We could go on and on but you really should just go and experience it for yourself! Best holiday we have ever had!!!! We loved coming home every night to antonio waiting(with mariposa by his side)playing cards in the street.

Great restraurants just down the street.

Forget to tell you Ronnys place for sunset was the best night our family has had together, seeing two macaws in the wild on our wonderful trek up there!!! Say no more just book it!!!!

Our children are 6 and 7

The house comes with 2 binders of DVDs the home is amazing with fans and air conditioning everywhere!

Nothing was lacking!!! Games and books were there for us well!!!!

Go go!!!
