We provide just about everything you need like a Hotel from beach towels to shampoo and conditioner. Our staff, Rolando and his wife Sandra live with their 3 daughters on the property in our gatehouse and are there to cater to your needs.

We traveled all of the Caribbean & parts of Central America & South America on business always enjoying the wonderful people and sites. However, we never felt the affection of the people and natural beauty we found in Quepos/Manuel Antonio. When you say Thank you the locals respond 'Con mucho gusto', with great pleasure, and mean it!

It was late Friday when our guests called Raul, our Concierge.They had lost their US passports for their Monday PM flight home. What to do? Quickly Raul made contact with the US embassy in San Jose. He arranged for an experienced driver to meet them early in San Jose & take them to the Embassy & then back to catch their 4:00 PM flight Home. We cover all the bases. Congratulations to Raul who was mentioned in the 2015 edition of Trip Advisor for his outstanding service to our guests. We have been friends for nearly 20 years,

We built our home on top of a wind swept hill facing the Pacific a 1/2 mile to the West & the rain forest covered San Marco Mountains to the East 5 miles away. The View to us as Successful realtors in Miami is what was paramount along with comfort. Yet we wanted to be able to have contact with the people and a safe convenient place to escape the hustle and bustle. Swing all day & night or swing in a hammock poolside!

Our grandchildren love it here and always want to return for the activities. The spa is perfect for toddlers. We even have a lovely crib.

Aside from a professional English speaking Concierge, Raul Miranda, we have a live on site caretaker, Rolando, and his family living full time in a small Casita on the property which is walled and gated. Many remote properties do not offer the security and service to which we are accustom.

The pool is very private for sunbathing with the jacuzzi and chaise lounges and pool side bath house with changing room.

Casa Wow better than ever as in February of 2016 we added our Mountain View Garden with wonderful vistas of the rainforest to the East and the San Marcos Mts. now extinct volcanoes running as far as the eye can see! A wonderful place to catch the cool mountain breeze and watch our flocks of parrots fly to the mountains only to return to our valley at sunset.

Our congratulations to the Costa Rican government for their road and signage improvements from San Jose to the Coastal cities including Quepos/Manuel Antonio(we share same local government). Now I can recommend a reasonably pleasant personal drive from San Jose. Also cell phone service has become first class but a real cost! The multitude of cell towers due to our terrain is an eye sore.

Bagels in Quepos! Yes, in 2016 Brooklyn landed a nice young couple of bakers who opened a shop next to the Gran Escape Restaurant off Main St where they have bagels, breads and donuts. They also serve food, nice sandwiches.

Marina Pez Vela, well cannot say enough about the bank owned rapidly growing Marina except Wow. Unlimited FUNDS! Now can boast of having 4 of the best restaurants in the area. Soon they are to build a Marriot Hotel as they finish the condos.

Keywords: Pacific Ocean Sunsets and Mountain Sunrises make this wind swept home truly a unique carefree tropical paradise!

Peace and quiet, 5 miles to world famous Manuel Antonio Beach & Park, #1 visited National Park. Sport fishing capital of North America. Great family fun for all ages. Concierge Raul Miranda can arrange all transportation & tours.

Beautiful views, nice pool, and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Wow was fantastic. The home is lovely. The views are fabulous and the pool was so helpful with children. It allowed the adults the opportunity to relax after a fun-filled day of exploring the beaches, jungles, waterfalls, and towns. The house was conveniently located and a wonderful place to stay in between adventures. Raul and Rolando were very helpful and pleasant.

Best time

  • 5 of 5

We have been to costa rica many times and this house was the best. Raul was a great help and made sure we where we'll taken care of and never bored. Orlando the care taker was also excellent. He made sure we where very comfortable and fresh eggs every day. The house itself was in a great location for us. And was very clean and comfortable. The house was not missing a thing and if we could not find something Raul or Orlando had it for us right away. In all a very well run house and excellent help. Thanks again for a great vacation.

A True Gem in Quepos !!!

  • 5 of 5

We found Casa Wow through VRBO. Communication with Tom via email was efficient, he answered all our questions quickly and we booked right away. Placement of the house is brilliant, you have the most amazing view of the mountains on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Pool and hot tub were a big hit with the family. Friendly concierge (Raul) who speaks excellent English met us upon arrival and gave us the tour of the house. Then he checked on us over the phone pretty much every day. Gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities. Raul also arranged for our pickup and drop off at the San Jose airport. Shuttle people met us right on time and were most courteous. House Keeper (Rolando) who lives on property in a separate villa is always there in case you need anything. Between my wife's broken Spanish and Google Translate we were able to communicate with Rolando without any problem. Rolando's dog became our adopted pet and hung out with us at the pool pretty much every day. House is beautiful both on the outside as well as the inside. We had fresh towels, fresh linens, a great kitchen, laundry, great WiFi, just to name a few house comforts. My wife really appreciated the medicine box with sunscreen and bug spray. My son and I went fishing and caught Red Snapper which we brought back and cooked on the grill. Tons of activities to do in that area. We went zip-lining with Canopy Safari one day. They pick you right up at Casa Wow and then drop you back off. Then one day we went white-water rafting with ADR (Amigos Del Rio) on Savegre River which was a lot of fun. Also a guided nature trip in Manuel Antonio followed by a most amazing time at the beautiful beach. I finished up with a nice 108" Sailfish on another fishing day. All in all The Levinson's have an absolutely wonderful place and if you are looking for peace & quite, or, fun & adventure, you will not be disappointed.

Best in Quepos!

  • 5 of 5

A couple of emails is all it takes too schedule your dream vacation in CR. Raul the concierge handles all ground transportation (super comfortable van with wi-fi and stops along the way), jungle adventures and fishing. I do recommend Frenzy for offshore fishing however. Book thru their website on your own. Casa Wow is top notch. Beautiful views and very comfortable place to stay with fast wi-fi. The only downside is it is a long walk to the marina and downtown. Raul typically handles most of those trips and cabs are plentiful and cheap otherwise. I will definitely be back.

10 Days of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived in Quepos..4 hours later than expected the exceptional service and help we received would never be expected from a resort. Raul is the most amazing concierge...the amazing amazing fishing trips we experienced will never be forgotten....his help and his suggestions were so welcome!!

Rolando(the onesite caretaker) and his family are there for you every day...we were not expecting a full clean of the house not once but twice while we were there. Watch out for the little one Nancy...she may just melt your heart and she likes snacks and 7UP!!! The house is amazing and so are the views!! We spent a lot of time there in the backyard enjoying the sun, heat and the parrots each day!!! Tom and Sandy have truly made a romantic or family home...whichever you prefer you will get with this home!

We have just sent out our confirmation for next year!! Costa Rica and their people are above none!! From the minute we arrived until the minute we left we were never disappointed.

A small note...do NOT rent a car from the airport...have Raul arrange your transportation from the airport to Quepos and then he will take exceptional care of your rental needs the next day!!

Ask Raul for Tony, Jimmy and Luis for a fabulous day of fishing!! We had 3 of the most amazing days with them!!

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house and comfortable in every way. We loved eating at the little table by the pool and had good adventures in the area. Rainmakers was a highlight - highly recommended and plan to get wet stomping through waterfalls and, likely, enjoy being rained on even if it is beautiful and sunny just 5-10 miles away. Manuel Antonio was...just OK. I think if you go and walk through it will be a let down, but if you get a great guide it can make for an interesting ~4 hour experience. We stayed away from the crowds on the private beach in Manuel Antonio and our boys played in the waves for hours while the monkeys tried to sneak up and steal our food - that was our real highlight from the park. The pool was fun every day when we got back and buying some fish in town to grill out (snook!) was fantastic. You'll want to have a car, the house is a bit out of Go for it - you won't be disappointed!

Four outstanding restaurants have opened at the Pez Vela Marina in Quepos as well as the first stage of the Condos. Many large yachts are housed in the Marina. The Marina's shipyard is the only large yacht service yard on the Pacific from Long Beach, Ca. to Ecuador. Owned by Promerica Bank who has the Marriot franchise Quepos' is expected in the near future. Yes, we are growing.

Grocery store less than a mile. Our Concierge, Raul is at your call 24/7! Let us send a van for you to bring you to Casa Wow and arrange for a local rental car at better rates than San Jose if desired and arrange for your fishing charters and tours. However I must say the roads have been drastically improved in 2014 & 2015 from San Jose to Quespos and the work continues. I am much more encouraging about driving.
