Why Kirk Wallace chose Puntarenas

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 Location, Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Casa Bosque Verde & as before, we thoroughly enjoyed it! Osvaldo was there to welcome us with a nice basket of goodies & let us know if we needed anything he was always available. Antonio & his faithful companion, Mariposa, live on the property & he is a pleasure to see each morning, welcoming with a smile & a "buenas dias." Lucy, the housekeeper, came to clean,etc.several times during our stay, as well. And we definitely took advantage of the pool on a daily basis. We love coming to the Manuel Antonio area & will most assuredly stay at Casa Bosque Verde again! It was nice that there was a/c in the dining/living area this visit, last time we didn't have that. The only thing I would suggest is possibly some kind of shade in the kitchen to avoid it being so hot in there during the day.

What you see in the pictures is what you get!

  • 4 of 5

What you see in the pictures is what you get! House is nice and clean, well kept and the pool is always warm.. We had a group of monkey come visit us one of the day we were there (we were there a week) and a few toucans. This is an ideal location, as it is off the main drag, yet walking distance to a few good restaurants, and a very short drive into town or to the beach. We were traveling with our three year old, and would not say this is a 'child friendly' house however. The bottom part of the stairs have no rail, and in the hallway upstairs there are three 'windows' (without windows) that look down on the living room. Although it ads beauty to the house, A small child could easily fall through. I would definitely rent again if you don't have small children.

Perfect Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 5 day stay at Casa Bosque Verde! We were there in January 2017. It was perfect for our group--my husband, 2 children, my parents, and I.

The house is very comfortable and well equipped and we loved the outdoor table and porch. The kitchen is well stocked (knives, pots/pans etc) and the phone system to allow for both local calls and free calls to the US/Canada was an added bonus! Os met us on arrival and gave us great information and checked in frequently to make sure our stay was going well! He was also very helpful with arranging activities! Antonio, who lives on the property, was also very helpful and he is good humored and kind! The pool was a welcome oasis at the end of each day. The close proximity to the grocery store and bus stop was also great and we really did not need the car we rented for this portion of our trip! The monkey visitors continue to make me smile as I think back on our outstanding stay in this gem!!!!

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults loved this house from the moment we opened the front door. The house has a beautiful, contemporary, open design and everything is very clean. The pool is wonderful and well maintained. Antonio, the property caretaker keeps the yard pristine! We felt very welcomed by Antonio and his dog Mariposa. The grocery store and restaurants are within walking distance and there was an amazing farmers market in Quepos on Saturday. Ellie met with us on arrival and answered any questions we had, including where we could buy fresh fish. Which was excellent! We will be back to Casa Basque Verde and I would recommend this house to family and friends.

I did think that we would be able to do our own laundry here but we could not. We did utilize Lucy's services for this purpose. She did a great job for a very reasonable price.

Place is Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Oh we so loved this house! Great location and price. In the middle of everything. The pictures don't do it justice. It is so fabulous. The pool, the garden, the big bathrooms, kitchen fully equipped, etc, etc, etc. Don Antonio who is onsite to help with anything is really the best. Super nice guy, very helpful, such a kind face. It definitely wouldn't be the same experience without him there.

Ellie met us to check us in and get us situated and helped us plan some excursions. She was so lovely. We went rappelling down the middle of a 160ft waterfall with Byron from Extreme Tours and it shouldn't be missed. Wow! She also got us a great guide for Manual Antonio. She helped us set up childcare twice for our two kids. Both lovely experiences and a first for us so it was amazing we felt so comfortable doing it. Oh and she arranged for our laundry to be washed for us by the house cleaner Lucy for a small fee who was also helpful.

Don't hesitate to stay here. It's the best in terms of price, service, and accommodations.
