This extremely and popular "Historic" Estate is provided with 9 bedrooms, 8 1/2 bathrooms, and over 10,500 sq.ft of living space while sitting on over 5 private acres of gated and secluded land that provides tremendous 180-degree ocean views and is situated only 500 feet above sea level.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I really don't know where to begin. 3 families totaled 19 happy guests. We had to pinch ourselves to realize if this was all real. Well it was, we were in paradise. Geralyn, Ana, Maria, Michól, everyone made our experience just absolutely "wonderful". They were all kind, sweet and very accommodating. We were surrounded by natures beauty and there was no other place we would have liked to have been during the new year - 2017! I am looking forward to return to this fantastic beauty!

This is not a review of the property or stay at Villa Pelicano, but rather a testament to the great team working there. My fiance and I had planned on getting married this upcoming March at the Villa but had to abruptly cancel our plans less than 2 months prior to the date due to a serious family illness that will require ongoing treatment. Needless to say, the unexpected family situation, as well as cancellation of our wedding has been one of the most trying times of our lives. Throughout this ordeal, the great people at VP have been nothing but understanding, and more helpful than we could imagine. We can't express the gratitude we have towards them enough.

It should be noted that our working relationship up until the point of cancellation had been fantastic. They truly do go above and beyond for their guests. Thank you so much again to Don, Geralyn and Sabrina for all of their time and efforts. When (not if) we do eventually get to visit Manuel Antonio, we know who we're contacting first.

Living the Pura Vida Life!

The best family vacation we have ever had. Geralyn was fantastic with communicating and helping us get ready for the vacation. With three families there was a lot of coordination and questions and she handled everything perfectly. She was available and helpful with any and everything we needed before or arrival and once we were there. The Chefs, Ana and Maria (her middle name) were outstanding. Not only did they make the most amazingly delicious meals, they were also very kind and loving with the kids and adults. It felt like we were leaving family when it was time to go. The views of the ocean and the jungle were spectacular and we enjoyed watching the sunset overnight, swimming in the pool and hanging out in the great room. It was truly a trip we will always remember. Thank you for everything!

Beautiful Property and incredible staff

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? We had 19 in our party with 2 sets of Grandparents, 6 adults and 9 kids ranging from 16 to 5 and there was plenty of room! The property is beautiful as the other reviews said before we went and actually we thought the pictures didn't really capture the space and beauty it posesses. The sunsets were spectacular and we felt they got better and better.

I can go on and on about the property and its beauty but had to write about the Service and Management Team and why they are second to none! Before we got there, during and even after we left we were treated like we were the only people in Costa Rica/Quepos. Geralyn, our concierge/liason was there for everything. Whether we called to get a taxi, food from the store or anything the was needed, she was always available. Everything was promptly attended too and we never felt like it was a problem. All of the tours that were suggested and set up were exactly what she said and more. The food at the house was AMAZING with our Chef Anna and her assistant Maria, we loved everything that was served ! Along with the great food came a personal touch with our kids that never will be forgotten. She even made some of our early favorites again because the kids wanted more! The house was always spotless even after we did our best to dirty everything up after a day at the beach. The rooms were spacious and always cool with A/C in every room!

Every trip comes with challenges and my review wouldn't be complete without telling our story. With my parents and in laws coming, the worry for them would be if something happened, would there be proper care. Going down, people told me that the medical care is excellent and that reassured our parents but there is always that worry. Well, my mother in law had to get medical attention in an unnerving situation at the house and why I say this is that Geralyn and her staff helped us beyond words. My mother in law got needed care and is doing very well because of the great attention to detail the whole staff had in a tough situation. Geralyn, Anna and the rest of the staff will always be thought of an extension of our family and we are eternally grateful.

Without sounding redundant, This property is as advertised and we would definitely go back. It is in the heart of Quepos and plenty to do for all ages! Thank you Geralyn and Staff!

Memories to last a life time!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to begin... When Planning our wedding, my fiancé and I knew that we wanted to chose somewhere other than Virginia. So after numerous searches and researching all possibilities for destination weddings, he found Villa Pelicano. He showed me the pictures and I was all in!

I didn't realize how much I would fall in love with this house and with the incredible staff. We booked a year and a half in advance and received the same attention then as we did while staying at the property.

We had 24 plus family members and the attention and service we received was above and beyond. I personally was having health issues and all I had to do was ask the staff that day for items that I needed and they were delivered within hours. I don't know what I would have done otherwise.

As a guest staying there, I can attest to the amazing views, the incredibly attentive staff, the amount of wild life we were immersed in without ever having to leave the house, the phenomenal chef, Ana, who in my book, is now family, and the fact that Villa Pelicano felt like home!! Also, the house is within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and the bus line! A complete plus for my family. Not to mention how diligent Sabrina and Geraline were at booking all of our excursions. Incredible!!!

As a bride who had a ceremony and reception there at Villa Pelicano, I was absolutely blown away at the transition that was made! Chef Ana continued on that night and made the most amazing appetizers and dinner! She also worked hard to make sure we saved money up until the day of, which I was extremely appreciative of. The transition from home to wedding went flawlessly. It was absolutely breathtaking!!

Thank you to all at Villa Pelicano who made this trip/wedding an absolute dream... a memory that will last a life time!

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciated playing a small role in your wedding by having it at our Villa Pelicano Estate and truly enjoyed hosting your group. Thank you for the kind words concerning our Chef Ana, and Concierge Geralyn who both go beyond the "call of duty" to make sure that everything is perfect and that you will have an amazing experience with memories of a lifetime. Please come back for your anniversary next year as we would love to host you again at either Villa Pelicano or one of our many other Luxury Villas. Congratulations again, Don

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Villa Pelicano! The grounds are beautiful and the house if perfect for large groups. The location is convenient and very close to a bus stop where you can take the bus to the beach or into Quepos for cheap. There are many convenience stores and a bank nearby as well.

Hands down my favorite part was having Ana as our chef daily. She went above and beyond just cooking for us and even got medicine for my infant when he was sick. I wish I could bring her home with us! The entire hospitality crew was amazing and made us feel really at home.

We stayed there with family for a wedding and the house worked out very well for their special day. It's a perfect location for a party.

The house is not set up well for small children or elderly because of the open staircases to the pool, slippery tile and steep hill but all of that was worth our amazing stay at this incredible property. I hope to come back again in the near future!
