Luxury Estate, 4 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 10) VIEWS & NATURE!!!!
- english, spanish
I moved to Costa Rica full time after years of traveling/ studying through the summers. I found my home in Manuel Antonio for years. It's the only place in the world I have traveled to that I have to catch my breath after seeing the view again for the first time! It's such a special place from the view, the park, beaches, and of course the monkeys! I have been fortunate throughout the years to stay at the Casa Bella Vista and proud to represent the owner. I have a passion for my friends, family and guests to have the best possible experience in Costa Rica. I make it a mission to provide a care-free vacation with all details completely handled!
Christen purchased this Estate in 1999
Why Christen chose Manuel Antonio
This property is perfect for a family or few couples. The spaces are very nice and open, terraces off every bedroom! The pool is perfect and just an amazing place to relax or entertain. It is in walking distance to many restaurants/bars and down to the beach! Location, location!
What makes this Estate unique
Casa Bella Vista truly is the home to Manuel Antonio's post-card view of the National Park. The infinity pool and roof-top terrace is a spectacular spot to take it all in from the view to nature around you. There is an abundance of animals that love the house too and stick pretty close. Casa Bella Vista is private yet a close minutes walk to the nearby restaurant and bars of Manuel Antonio. It is also in walking distance down to the beach.

Beautiful home with amazing views and staff!!
We had the most amazing vacation in this absolutely beautiful home! Both the house and the views exceeded our expectations. It was so beautiful and relaxing that we could have stayed there all day everyday! We didn't of course because the location is amazing as well. It was nice to be able to hike down to the beach for the day or walk to one of the many cute restaurants close by. It was also nice to have a supermarket a short walk away. There was really no need for a car so I would take advantage of having a driver bring you from the airport. The house manager, Sani, will set this up for you. I can't say enough wonderful things about Sani and the rest of the staff!! They all went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time, and everything we needed. Lilli was a fantastic cook! We used her two nights and had the most amazing meals! I wanted to bring her home with me :) We went white water rafting at Sani's recommendation and had the best time!! He also took us on a private tour of local water falls and beach caves one day that was amazing! We did not stay long enough and are already planning a trip back. Best vacation ever for a family of 6!
Hello!!! We appreciate your kind words and thrilled you had a great trip to Casa Bella Vista and Manuel Antonio! Sani is the best and trust he has more amazing experiences for your next visit! We love our repeat guests and look forward to having you stay again!
AMAZING, SPECTACULAR,UNBELIEVABLE and an UNFORGETTABLE PLACE!!!!
If you are staying in Manuel Antonio, this is the place to be, this place has breathtaking views ( the best of any other place in MA). This mansion not only it’s beautiful but also the wild life you see it’s amazing , even better than the national park. The staff (Sani, Lili, Rodrigo,...) are amazing, just like family. I would recommend this place to anybody going to MA. I’m not sure if we can top this vacation!!
We celebrated our 25th anniversary and my son's college graduation and could not have chosen a better home to celebrate these milestones. Casa Buena Vista, Sani, Lilli, Dixie, and the newest member, Rodrigo made our stay that much more special! We look forward to returning to this vacation home for its ideal location, wildlife, beaches, rafting, and to create more incredible memories.
One of the nicest places I have ever stayed!!!!
We had a great time! The house was more beautiful than we expected. Sani was wonderful, he made our time in Manuel Antonio unforgettable. Lili was great and made some delicious meals for us, too. The rest of the staff at the house were also top notch.
We stayed at another beautiful house in Playa Hermosa and it wasn’t the same without the wonderful crew at Casa Bella Vista!
Thank you for letting us stay! We will recommend to all our friends.

Perfect Location. An easy walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants! If walking isn’t your thing…taxis are safe and easy.
Situated in the center of what seems the jungle, the homes gates open up to reveal the private villa and stunning view of the beach down below! The home flows effortlessly. Enough areas that in my group of 8, not once did I struggle to find a quiet place to relax. The master bedroom…Huge with a closet, bathroom to match!! The other three bedrooms do not require a coin toss to decide which bedroom goes to who…all are equally Great.Any cook will enjoy the large beautiful chefs kitchen. Glassware, dishes, utensils and pots and pans are plenty, and no worries…two coffee makers!
The view over the amazing infinity pool never disappoints. Coffee at sunrise and cocktails at sunset.. Perfection! Lounge chairs, alfresco cooking and dining and swim up bar all invite you to sit back and relax.
We saw more wildlife at the Villa than anywhere else on our trip. Monkeys daily would stop by for a treat and some play time. Don’t be surprised by a visit from toucans, sloths, macaws, iguanas, birds galore, and did i mention monkeys?
The staff at Casa Bella Vista is like no other.
Noe(pronounced no-way)was the groundskeeper and he spent every day making sure we were taken care of..the pool, grounds, and the house are being well attended to. How do i start the grill…NOE, we need more ice…NOE…..we need a taxi..NOE….he was on it! Bottom line….Noe opened and closed the house every day …resulting in an amazing feeling of security!
Dixie…took care of the house…daily cleaning of entire house, including beds and laundry, and if you like she washes and fold your clothes.
Lili.. My new good friend is no stranger to the kitchen. She graced our group two nights with her amazing culinary talents. If i had to do over…she would have been there every day! btw…she makes a mean mango daiquiri!!!
Last but definitely not least…
Sani….you can call him the host, manager, concierge..But after staying at Casa Bella Vista..you will call him Friend.
He can handle anything and he seems to know everyone in Manuel Antonio ! You need a driver, you need Tour, You need any recommendations,
he will set anything up for you and your group. You may even ask him to join…btw..he’s an amazing white water rafter!!!
So friends, Your search has ended….Casa Bella Vista is IT!!

Please let me know when you are ready to come back to paradise! We LOVE our repeat guests!
Incredible property !!
The pictures of the Casa Bella Vista really don't do it justice. This has to be the nicest home in all of Manuel Antonio with the most incredible view !!! The open air concept is very comfortable and the air conditioned bedrooms make sleeping great. We visited Manuel Antonio Park at the end of our trip and were actually disappointed because we saw more wildlife at the Villa than we did at the park ! At the Villa we saw three types of monkeys, a sloth, an iguana, a toucan bird and a wild chicken! Wow ! There were ten in our group and we were all very comfortable. The house staff were all very helpful and very nice. I would highly recommend Casa Bella Vista and I can't imagine our group would want to stay anywhere else !!
