About the property

Great private home with two guest houses, perfect for families or groups!

Situated in Manuel Antonio's lush tropical rainforest, Casa Colibri provides you with exceptional accommodations, a stunning ocean view, and frequent visits by monkeys, sloths, and tropical birds and lizards. Two secluded guest houses, Casa Gekko and Casa Selva, flank this three-bedroom villa making it an ideal setting for those who enjoy the camaraderie of others but also desire the serenity of personal space. In total, the estate comfortably sleeps 11 but can accommodate 14 with use of our new sofabeds.

After passing through the entrance gate you will immediately notice the newly constructed pool and exotic Tiki hut equipped with a granite top bar and the latest grill for those magical afternoons and evenings living the “pure life.” Pura vida! An additional feature of Casa Colibri that makes it unique is what we call the “Mirador Adventure”. Located just off the pool, this multi structure entertainment area consists of a gazebo with hammocks and rockers that have an ocean view, tree-house, bridges, rope climbs, tires and swings. Adventure awaits here for all ages.

Guestbook comments from the manager

If you are looking for a vacation where your every need is taken care of in a luxurious estate that overlooks the ocean, you have arrived. Susan Ranger is the welcoming concierge of this amazing property, and she is takes care of everything. We stayed here with eight adults--be aware that people will be sharing beds if you have a big family-- the main house has three bedrooms--the master with its own bathroom (with an open air shower), a small bedroom with a double bed, and a larger second bedroom with a double bed and a single bed in an alcove. The bathroom is shared. The two cottages have a double bed each, and are self contained. The main house is not air conditioned (the bedrooms are), so be prepared to be warm/hot inside with all doors and windows open--spend your time outside, esp in the evenings where you will be treated to spectacular sunsets every night from the pool deck. We hired a chef to cook our evening meals--highly recommended as it is cheaper and more convenient than going out every night. We had mono titi monkeys greet us the first day we arrived, and white faced monkeys came through two other days while we were there. We loved every minute of our stay and would go back in a minute.

50th Wedding anniversary Christmas celebration

  • 5 of 5

Eagerly anticipated first time trip to Costa Rica as a destination event for our 50th wedding anniversary over Christmas went without a hitch. Casa Colibri turned out to be the perfect location for our 3 generation 11 member family and it exceeded our expectations on every level. Planning assistance by Susan Ranger, our friendly and capable concierge, was invaluable. Her attention to detail on arranging the airport shuttles from San Jose, the 4 tours on our itinerary and her choice of Chef Carlos to handle our breakfast and dinner needs was spot on for making our stay trouble free. The property is obviously well maintained and the availability of 2 casitas allowed our party to spread out and have a semblance of privacy over our 8 day stay. The pool set up and new cabana were big hits and the tree house and elevated hammock observation area were popular. There were far more wildlife sightings on this property than anywhere else in Manuel Antonio with nearly daily invasions by large troops of squirrel and capuchin monkeys each afternoon that gave an up close and very personal exposure to primate behavior. The kids also eagerly awaited Iggy, the large resident iguana and his girlfriend Izzy, to patrol the property daily. Access to all the nearby local beaches is best done by cab, bus or rental car since this area is very hilly and there are no sidewalks to speak of along the narrow main road that runs from the town of Quepos to the excellent national park beach area. Would definitely return to Casa Colibri.

Casa Colibri

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying at Casa Colibri.Carlos the chef is fantastic, and really added to our stay.The grounds are spectacular and we so enjoyed seeing the various birds and the monkeys coming right up to the decking area.Susan was enormously helpful as well. We were able to do some fantastic excursions that were easy to get to. We really loved the wooden structure including the treehouse I hope that that remains.
