Guestbook comments from the owner

Our extended family of 9 rented Casa Sarita in late December. The house is immaculate and having a housekeeper come every day is wonderful. Three levels make it seem so open and the light is wonderful. We saw more wildlife at the house than we did in the National Park. The hill down to the house is VERY steep and is not appropriate for anyone with health issues. It was a holiday week so every house nearby was occupied and there was some noise and cars coming and going. But not so loud or so late that it was really annoying. There are many restaurants very close to the house too. Beaches are NOT walkable so you will need to have a car. All in all, a wonderful home and relaxing trip. Thank you.

Truly Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Sarita was awesome. We had a group of 8 including two 12 year olds to celebrate a 50th birthday. The rooms are very spacious and more than enough space for our group. It’s a great location with incredible views and very close to restaurants, activities, etc. Hazel and the staff were great. They connected with great activities and a really phenomenal private chef. The private dinner was a real highlight of the trip. The house itself is great and the pictures do it justice. You can’t go wrong herely truly Pura Vida.

Perfection in the Jungle

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was one of the best I have stayed in. The house looks just as it does in the pictures. Howler monkeys were everywhere, but never made a nusance of themselves. Very close to stores and food. Perfect location for Manuel Antonio visit. Hazel and the staff were Amazing! We became lost on our drive from San Jose to villa and arrived very late. Hazel waited and made sure we settled in when we arrived. Cleaning staff came daily and did a wonderful job. No bugs with the exeption of a couple cockroaches here and there. Four of us in the group, and the house more than enough room for everyone.

Great location. We loved the howler and squirrel monkeys that came by. We even spotted a sloth one day. The rooms are spacious and accommodate many - we only had 5 in our group, but it worked well. The top bedroom has the most breathtaking views, but no bathroom. So we all slept on the first two levels and used the top floor for viewing wildlife and morning coffee. Very tranquil. I rolled my ankle the day before so we didn't walk to restaurants, we drove. Everyone in our group was grateful of my injury since they got a ride & didn't have to walk. That's a steep incline. When we booked, the house was in transition between owners so communication wasn't great prior to arriving & left me a bit unsure, but once there Hazel was great & we were well looked after. Great house. Pura Vida!

Glorious week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at the beautiful Casa Sarita could not have been more perfect. The house is spacious, beautifully appointed and extremely roomy. We woke every morning with a beautiful view of the ocean. We loved having coffee by the pool every morning surrounded by the jungle, looking for monkeys and birds. The house could not be better many restaurants and shops within walking distance. The beach and park are only a quick 5 minute drive. All of the restaurants we ate at it were amazing with great service. The house staff did a wonderful job of cleaning every day. I could not recommend Casa Sarita and Costa Rica more as a vacation destination!

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

This home is warm and inviting. It is a beautiful home but comfortable. Very spacious inside and the outdoor area with pool is private. Great location. One can walk to restaurants if desired. The wildlife is a bonus. Monkey sightings daily. Can't say enough positive about this home. I would recommend this to anyone. So much fun to do in this area.

Best Thanksgiving Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sarita is the perfect place for family and friends to meet in beautiful Costa Rica. The house is comfortable, beautifully decorated, and located in a perfect area for tourist. We spent Thanksgiving week at Casa Sarita and were impressed with the outstanding views, wildlife encounters daily, the fantastic local restaurants and the availability of guided sightseeing tours. Would not hesitate to return to this idyllic tropical paradise.

Manuel Antonio can be reached by a 20 minute flight from San Jose Airport (Juan Santamaria), or a beautiful 2-1/2 hour drive over mountains, through coffee plantations, down the coast through palm fields. The many small towns along the way gives one a great feel for the rural countryside, which is the true Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio is a bohemian mixture of people and places. Restaurants range from simple to five star quality. Great shopping for local crafts and art. This is not a 'surf' town like Tamarindo to the north. Lots of incredible live music. The beaches of Manuel Antonio are world class and the area is truly a tropical paradise.

Other Activities: Canopy tours, rafting, kayaking, butterfly farm
