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. Integrated harmoniously into the natural landscape of Manuel Antonio's jungle hills, nestled in a private forest of tropical gardens, this special Estate is surrounded by unspoiled vegetation and provides the feeling of total seclusion. The indescribable sunsets are sure to awe you as well as the spectacular views of the ocean, coves, points, coastline and distant mountains.

Villa Pelicano Private Estate offers complete discretion and privacy while being situated in the heart of Manuel Antonio and walking distance to our countless fine restaurants, shopping plazas, night life, gym, coffee shops, bars, and so much more while conveniently located within minutes drive between the bustling fishing village of Quepos with every amenity you could possibly need as well as our very popular National Park and Main Beach area.

Villa Pelicano Private Estate is described as the “mansion” of Manuel Antonio and a landmark of the town with its walled entrance and completed gated property. As your private gate opens, you will drive down a palmed lined driveway to your own private resort. Upon entering the Villa, the 2 story cathedral ceilings will awe you as will the enormous size of the living, dining, verandas, pool, bedrooms, baths and walk in closets.

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!

My overall review ~ VILLA PELICANO ~ PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Villa Pelicano on Dec 26th, the driver of our van, stated: "Welcome to paradise". And he was SO RIGHT! The Villa was the most beautiful place we had ever had the pleasure to enjoy! I enjoyed four and a half days of that paradise, before having a medical emergency which caused me to be hospitalized at CIMA Hospital in San Jose before returning to Arizona for further care. The date of my medical emergency, Geralyn and her staff quickly stepped in to ensure my care and safety! Geralyn accompanied myself and my husband in the ambulance to the hospital and other staff attended our family there. The care they provided was amazing! Sadly I was not able to return to the Villa but the memory of the fabulous days I did have there will remain with me forever! We so enjoyed the monkeys who were right outside our door ~ the iguanas and macaws and so many other beautiful birds ~ the amazing view of the Pacific Ocean ~ the Chef's (Ana and Maria) were the BEST ~ providing amazing meals for us ~ the property was very clean and well taken care of by the staff every day ~ both inside the Villa and also the grounds! I want to thank all your staff for the great time they provided for us. I would DEFINITELY encourage everyone to try the Villa for their "paradise vacation"!! It was the BEST FIVE Star EVER!

Owner's Response: Hi Mona, We are all delighted to hear that your health is much better and that our team was there with complete support for your unexpected medical emergency. Cima Hospital is one of the top rated hospitals in Central America and is on the same caliber as the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and other high end medical centers. We would love to host your group again if you ever return to our beautiful Manuel Antonio area. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Don

Fantastic house - great base for area activities

  • 5 of 5

This is in addition to comments from Di (Fishers, IN). Agree with everything Di said. Also, sunsets are wonderful, and the animals fun to see (monkeys, iguanas, agouti, macaws and other colorful birds - one of our group also saw an ocelot).

Villa Pelicano...5 STAR IN EVERYWAY!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places I've ever vacationed! The house and amenities were stellar, but what really sold it for me were the terrific people.

Geralyn Araya took impeccable care of us, and having Chef Anna and

Maria cooking for us each day was a gastronomical delight! Right down to the house maids and property caretakers, this staff was second to none. Treat yourself and vacation at Villa Pelicano! You won't be disappointed.

I was part of a group of 16 friends who had the pleasure of staying at Villa Pelicano. This experience and our stay surpassed any expectations as it was truly a week of paradise from the moment we arrived. Villa Pelicano is a beautiful home that provides excellent amenities including a fabulous pool, ample space, comfort, and a breath-taking view. Equally as important was the care and courtesy provided to us by Geralyn. Her attention to detail and coordination made everything perfect from the moment we stepped off the airplane. We are so grateful to her for making our trip the vacation of a lifetime. Part of what made our stay so amazing was Chef Ana and Maria. Each meal was truly delightful and completely unforgettable. Our dining experience was a high point of each and every day. Thank you to everyone for making us so comfortable and for a most incredible vacation!

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

There was a group of 16 of us who chose this wonderful house and destination for our vacation this year. It was simply superb! The country is lush and beautiful. The Villa was equally so! The concierge Geralyn was absolutely wonderful to work with. She did a top notch job. She booked our transportation from/to airport/villa, all our excursions, not to mention she was always available to answer all our questions. Next came Ana who was our Chef for the week along with her lovely assistant Maria! I cannot say enough great things about them! The food was delicious! Service impeccable! You will want to take them home with you! The Villa is beautiful, clean, and spacious! Maids were there daily and did a wonderful job! The pool was wonderful and the grounds well kept! Would we go back again and again.....undeniably YES!!!!! We want to thank the Villa Pelicanos team for one of our best vacation ever!
