Panoramic, unspoiled and unique are just a few adjectives that describe the view from this stunning villa. There are not many places where you will witness the perfection of nature and its range of colors. You will be served in terms of tranquility as there are no houses in front of you and not a single sound of road traffic: Here nature seems to rule for a change and the sound of the ever present toucans, tropical birds, monkeys will remind why you chose Manuel Antonio as one of the best destinations in the world. It may sound as if you are far from everything but a realistic 8 min drive to the beach or national park is hardly a price to pay for such tranquility and beauty. Located on the exclusive El Salto Estate of Manuel Antonio you will enjoy the benefits of this high end gated community: Private paths for hiking and your morning exercises, security, exclusivity …
With 5000 sq feet of space, your friends or family will enjoy all areas of the villa . The spacious shaded balcony will no doubt be the main hangout area inviting you into the infinity edge pool. The kitchen & living area flow perfectly into the outside space with its comfortable loungers, outside dinning space hammock and BBQ area. How strange that the ocean breeze punctually seems to impose itself just around mid morning when you need it most ? The villa always feels fresh and breezy.
We have taken time to select the best orthopedic beds with soft cotton sheets which a villa of this type demands. Each bedroom has a king size bed, fans and AC. The lounge area is perfect with 3 comfortable sofas, a 50” Satellite TV with over 200 channels. The fully equipped kitchen is open plan and occupies the center of the social area. If you decide to select the chef service option you will be spoiled with fantastic cuisine depending on your choice. We also understand that doing laundry and cleaning is not on your list during your stay which is why we will take care of that on a daily basis. Our staff know how to look after you…
Enjoy life as it is supposed to be.

About Olivier Collin
After 50 years on this planet I have found the best place to live: Manuel Antonio Costa Rica ! I was born in Belgium and by the age of 11 the 'travelling' began ! I spent 20 year in England which were wonderful but destiny attracted me to this piece of paradise. I met my wife Luz who is Costa Rican and we got married on the Manuel Antonio beach in 2003. We now have 2 children aged 13 and 4 and feel very much at home in this country. We enjoy looking after our guests and being onsite in Manuel Antonio has its advantages.
Olivier Collin purchased this Villa in 2011

What makes this Villa unique

I want to give this property more than 5 stars
What a wonderful experience! Natalie the property manager was happy to greet us and presented us with a welcome gift of homemade quiche, salad and beer. After a long, tiring drive from La Fortuna, our group of 5 adults arrived too tired to think about looking for dining options so this was greatly appreciated.
The house is spectacular! Plenty of space for everyone to spread out, balconies on every side of the house to view wildlife, fully equipped kitchen and a huge gas grill to cook whatever fish you catch from going out on a charter boat. This property is so nice, we opted to spend a whole day of our action-packed vacation just to chill in the swimming pool.
Not only did Natalie welcome us, she also assisted in arranging a tour of Manuel Antonio National Park with a reputable guide who turned out to be terrific. Additionally, Tamara the housekeeper did a great job and was ready to do a big pile of our laundry when we first arrived and again before we left.
Seriously, there is nothing negative I can say about the property or those we interacted with to make this stay happen. I will mention that a 4WD vehicle isn't necessary to get to this house but it makes the drive a bit easier. Also, be sure to close up the massive sliding doors at night when you go to bed or you may have kitchen visitors like we did! Nothing terrible but they (we assume raccoons) did find the kitchen trash can and made a mess.
Bedrooms are air conditioned, common areas are not but we didn't mind because... cool drinks and a perfect swimming pool. The views from this house will capture your attention for hours. Would I stay here again? Absolutely. Actually, I don't think I would even look around. This is the place.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate it as we try and improve the villa and the service every year. We take notes on any negatives and solve it fast.
We hope to see you soon,
Stunning views in spacious luxurious house
The views from the house are jaw dropping and give a level of seclusion not possible in other areas of Manuel Antonio. The peace and tranquility of the house was a welcome contrast to the crowds we experienced in the park. The only drawback is accessibility which means taking taxis or short drives to restaurants, etc. It would also be possible to walk into town with an occasional macaw or toucan sighting along the way. I would highly recommend using the concierge service (Natalia) to book at least one meal in the house. She is very helpful and can give great recommendations. The owner is adding additional room at the location, which means that the lower level is unfinished. This doesn't affect your experience at all, it just means the iguanas have plenty of room to scamper about during the peak sun times.
This is a beautiful home. We are very happy with our stay. The home's view is amazing, the pool is warm and there is plenty of space for 2 families. The property manager, Natalia, was very helpful is organizing tours if we needed them and was accessible for information. The home was cleaned every day as well.
If you are staying in Manuel Antonio, I highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed!
Beautiful villa, breathtaking setting
We were not disappointed with this property! Travelled here with another family, and it was a perfect place for the 9 of us to call home while visiting the Manuel Antonio area. As many times as we had viewed the pictures, it was far more beautiful in person. The beds were comfortable, and bathrooms were clean 🙂�.
Natalia, the house manager contacted us within hours of our booking, and was able to help us with our plans and questions regarding our stay. She provides insight, advice, and can even book tours and make reservations for you. Very responsive through texts, and we found ourselves asking her questions throughout the day.
Tamara arrived every morning to straighten up and take care of laundry (every other day) and silently worked in the background amongst 2 (often loud) families enjoying the house and pool. We didn’t think we would be comfortable with someone doing our laundry, but are so glad we did!!
We would highly recommend this property and this area, and if we are ever back in the area would love to stay here again.
Unbelievably stunning jungle views from this gorgeous home.
The home is spectacular. We had 7 people in the house and never were underfoot of each other. Bedrooms are very comfortable, they have AC, ceiling fans, roomy and all had windows with great views. The pool felt great and you couldn't beat the view of all the birds flying around and other animals that Natalia did a stellar job setting up our transportation from the San Jose airport to our hotel for the first night and then our trip to the house the next day with a super guy named Marvin. He stopped so we could see the crocodiles and then to get some groceries before arriving safely to the house on our first day. We decided to have the chef for our first night, because no one felt like going out after a day of travel. Luz is a fantastic cook - we had chicken, beef, salad, chips, salsa, guacamole, salad with the best creamy avocado garlic dressing I ever have tasted, which was finished off with flambé bananas over vanilla ice cream!!! I definitely recommend at least once having Luz cook for you during your stay - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Can't say enough about Natalia and all her efforts to make us comfortable and setting up all our excursions - Catamaran, Manual Antonio park, transportation to fishing, and our kayak tour of the mangroves. She also made sure if we wanted to go out that we had a direct number to Carlos for taxi service - He is great too. The housekeeper was terrific, kept the house spotless and even did our laundry one day. I highly recommend staying at this home, you won't regret it. Costa RIca was terrific.
This was an amazing place to stay...a home away from home!
The place was clean, huge and peaceful with no disturbing neighbors. The house manager Natalia was super helpful and only set us up with the best of the best from cabs to restaurants to tours... we were treated like royalty! Tamara was there daily making sure our house was clean and comfortable. Oliver was ready and on hand when there was something major that needed taking care of ( just a few bees lol ) And the pool was such a reprieve from the heat and unlike a resort didn't shut down until we shut it down ;) ...a great place to stay for your whole trip as it's in the middle of the action on the east coast. We would come back for sure!!
