Oasis in Manuel Antonio

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely oasis to return to after exploring Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park. Barry was very helpful with suggestions and information and the apartment is very comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool and the sense of privacy the forest provided. Thanks Barry!

Great disappointment. Not as advertised. Could not stay!

  • 1 of 5

Villa Vista Verde was a damp, moldy and gloomy smelly 2 room place. There was not air conditioner, as advertised, only one in bedroom which we were told to keep at a specific temperature, no oven , again as advertised, we were told only to cook on the stove. No barbecue, as advertised, we were told not to use it. The outside patio was covered in sticks and leaves. My wife worried she would fall on the steep ramp from the driveway to the house as the ramp was covered in leaves. The swimming pool was filled with leaves and dirt - unusable. The owner was overbearing insisting on telling us his story while not answering our questions. After viewing Villa Vista Verde, we immediately looked for an acceptable place to stay. Could not stay even one night. Are hoping to get a refund. Know what you are getting into if you book here.

What a deal! This place is perfectly located, beautiful, completely affordable, and comes with its own concierge (Barry!). Our two young daughters (5 and 9) and my husband and I spent three nights there. Wish we had spent a week!

Terrific place with special guests

  • 5 of 5

Annie and Barry were excellent hosts. Barry picked us up at our shuttle drop off and took us back when we left 2 weeks later.

The apartment is very spacious and nicely furnished.

Great kitchen, lots of counter space, gas stove, large fridge, microwave, and a blender (very important).

Two air conditioners, dehumidifier and a full laundry. Very good shower, lots of hot water.

The pool was a blessing. The weather was hot and humid and we were done most days by 2:30 so the pool was a lifesaver.

The pool was attended by a very friendly iguana, and on several occasions squirrel monkeys and capuchin monkeys.

Many birds, small lizards, and NO mosquitoes.

We did not have a car and used the local bus to get to Quepos or Manuel Antonio. Very inexpensive. The walk to the bus is about 10 minutes.

Barry helped us with some tours which were all first rate. The one at Kids Saving the Rainforest, where Annie volunteers was excellent.

Villa Vista Verde is a real rain forest retreat.
