Beaches - This Wonderful Villa is walkable to 2 stunning beaches. The first beach is a short 7-minute walk through the lush tropical jungle to the famous Manuel Antonio main beach known as Playa Espadilla recognized as one of the top rated beaches in the world. The second beach is Playa Biesanz, a slightly longer walk with a romantic, picturesque setting with tiny gentle waves that are perfect for toddlers and small kids, also a great beach for kayaking and snorkeling.

Manuel Antonio - Where the jungle meets the sea is a region best known for its gorgeous white sand beaches, world famous Manuel Antonio National Park (which was ranked as one of the top 12 National Parks in the world by Forbes Magazine), several multi-cultural restaurants and abundant wildlife.

Vista Hermosa Estate would not be a First Class Estate without providing your own Gourmet Chef to prepare up to 2 meals per day (food and beverage cost are separate as well as special pricing for any event). Nobody needs to shop, cook or clean as your personal Chef does it all and saves you money as well by purchasing the freshest ingredients from local vendors - butchers and fisherman, where typically only Restaurants shop. Saturday mornings is the day that our Chef goes to our Farmers market and selects the best vegetables, fruit and high quality produce at a fraction of the cost of our local stores.

Vista Hermosa Estate is managed by CR Vacation Properties, Manuel Antonio’s top vacation property management company. CR Vacation Properties handles all of our management and concierge services.

About Don Segal

We visited Costa Rica and fell in love. We decided in building a home for our family and friends to also fall in love with the Pura Vida way of life here. We hope that you enjoy our home and will want to come back and stay with us again.

Don Segal purchased this villa in 2016

Why Don Segal chose Puntarenas

If you love phenomenal ocean views with the ability to walk to the best beaches in Manuel Antonio and also enjoy the town, just a 20-minute walk to shops and restaurants, then you have found your place. This villa offers a breathtaking Ocean view from every room in the house and is managed by the most respected Vacation Rental company in Manuel Antonio with CR Vacation Properties..www.crvacationproperties.com.

Manuel Antonio has fabulous parasailing, surfing, plenty of restaurants, nightlife, awesome beaches, sport-fishing, and a beautiful national park with plenty of wildlife, it’s clear why this area remains so popular. Thousands flock to Playa Espadilla and its surrounding sands each year. Because Manuel Antonio is situated on rolling hills, tourists are drawn by breathtaking views of the Pacific, surrounding jungle and pristine beaches. Although a wide variety of tourism based businesses have sprung up along the jungle forested hills, Manuel Antonio has managed to strike a fine balance between development and nature as the town still has plenty of thick tropical rainforest. Wildlife is plentiful all around town and is a highlight for most visitors. Vista Hermosa Estate might feel like you’re staying at a luxury hotel with all the amenities, but that won’t stop troops of monkeys from scattering across the top floor.

5 star luxury new vacation home with 5 star ++ views of the ocean & rain forest (and awesome staff!)

  • 5 of 5

16 of us arrived for what ended up being the best vacation of our lives! Ages ranged from seven to 82 - grandkids to grandparents. None of us had been to Costa Rica and none of us had stayed in a luxury vacation home. We have however stayed in beautiful hotels on four continents in South Africa, Ireland, Switzerland, Caribbean, Mexico, U.S.A. (Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe & Monterey), France, Brazil, etc. and have taken a number of cruises including Queen Elizabeth 2 from Southampton to New York. Three of us also flew on the Concorde airplane (British Airways) from New York to London (3.5 hours). We have also stayed in private lodges on safari in Botswana and South Africa with our own tracker and game ranger. We have traveled quite a lot. BUT...we loved Vista Hermosa Estate in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, the most!

We felt like we were living the life of Sir Richard Branson (founder of Virgin Group) on his Necker Island luxury private resort. The views from all floors of Vista Hermosa Estate are INCREDIBLE! We couldn't stop taking pictures the first two days. Pictures do not do it justice. To see squirrel monkeys jumping from tree to tree, hearing the deep loud howler monkeys, and seeing Macaws flying in large groups, and the occasional Toucan from the infinity edge pool with the ocean and numerous islands as the back-drop was AMAZING!

The Bali style furnishings fit the home perfectly. Loved the dark woods! Beds were comfortable. Air conditioning and ceiling fans worked great. Loved opening all of the sliding glass doors during dinner which made us feel like we were eating in a tree house above the forest canopy with the sun setting over the ocean. Found the nightly rain in July relaxing and rejuvenating. Days were sunny and warm but not uncomfortably hot. We live in Texas so we know what hot is.

And the staff! Loved the staff. Full-time chefs Javier and his wife Karina are wonderful people and fantastic cooks. We ate like royalty all week and all 16 of us enjoyed every meal as evidenced by how little if anything remained on our plates after dinner. We had a total of 14 meals at the home which included ribs in pineapple bbq sauce, chicken in orange citrus vinaigrette sauce, pork in a tamarind reduction sauce, red snapper blackened, etc. Flavors and freshness were mouthwatering delicious!

Our private concierge, Shiona, was the best! Put us on great tours (4x4 jeeps, swimming in waterfalls, zip-lining, etc)!

A bucket list desitination, heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

You won't be disappointed. We have traveled around the globe (Africa, Europe, Britian, South Pacific, Australia, North America to name a few) and this is one of our favourite places on earth. The house is incredible with spectacular views over Manuel Antonio beach. Wake up to the sounds of wildlife or watch an afternoon thunderstorm under a covered balcony. Surf the waves at your doorstep or swim in the infinity pool. Our entire family & extended family had an incredible time. The food was amazing, prepared by Javier & Karina and included some of the local flavours & tastes to experience a little of the Costa Rican culture. Shiona was incredibly helpful coordinating tours, the menu as well as medical assistance, not sure what we would have done without her expertise and ability to translate. Words just can't describe the scenery and pictures just don't do it justice. This is one destination you have to include on your bucket list!

Vacation in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Vista Hermosa Estate is definitely 5* plus! Every detail has been thought of, from the coded locks on each bedroom for privacy and a safe in each room, to the loaded ipad on the top deck for music and beach accessories like chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. The infinity pool on the top floor is outstanding, I could stay there all day. The staff are top notch, great at what they do and very friendly. Every single meal was delicious, housekeeping kept everything spotless and our concierge was friendly, always available and ready to help with the answers at her fingertips. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. (this is not the property for anyone with mobility issues as there are a lot of stairs)

Pure Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Costa Rica! The pictures of this house do not do it justice...you can't truly capture the beauty of this incredible home unless you see it in person!! The layout is perfect for large groups with plenty of room for everyone. The pool is beautiful! The short walk to the beach was a fun adventure everyday seeing what animals we could find on the way. The monkeys visiting us during our morning coffee was an experience none of us will ever forget!! Every aspect of our trip was perfect. Shiona was a big part of making this trip such a success! All of our excursions, even a last minute parasailing adventure, were fantastic! The household staff were wonderful and so accommodating! The attention to detail and helpfulness of everyone made our week a joy! Special shout out to the chefs who became extended family for the week and treated us so wonderfully! The food was delicious...every single meal was out of this world! We can't wait to go back!

Pure paradise!!

Simply Breathtaking!!

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent traveler to Costa Rica, I can definitely say this is one of the most beautiful villas I've seen or stayed in. The fantastic amenities only adds to the experience. From the moment you walk in it’s just a mesmerizing experience. On this vacation, I traveled with my family and extended family. No need to fight over rooms, we all had ocean view bedrooms. Everything you could possibly need or want is here. The house is located in an amazing location with several of restaurants and shops nearby, and yet inside the villa, you feel like you are transported to a quiet, scenic space away from it all. The house is luxurious and incredibly spacious and with our group of 20. We never had any space issues, big enough to find a spot to isolate yourself from the group or be involved. The Balinese open air architecture is fantastic. The infinity pool with its panoramic ocean views is a refreshing delight and the design is so well thought out and put together. I especially enjoyed the open top floor event area with the great sounding sound system, what a better way to pop open an Imperial beer, put your feet up and take in all the surrounding beauty. Even though it was raining a few evenings we could sit on the couches of the open air top floor and read while we watched the rain. All this as our chef Javier prepared us 5-star meals. I can’t think of a better way I want to vacation. Shiona our concierge also arranged several excursions for us and was really available every time, happily answering questions every time we texted, and checking in on us regularly. I Can't recommend this place highly enough. Your only regret will be that it's hard to tear yourself away from acting like a tourist in town because you'd rather spend all your time in this amazing property. I can’t wait to return!

Wedding in a tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Vista Hermosa was everything we were looking for and more! The house has the most incredible beathtaking view overlooking the jungle and ocean. Would've been content just sitting and looking out and bird watching, but there was so much to see and do in Manuel Antonio! The staff and Shiona were very kind and helpful! We loved the brunch that was prepared by the chef and his wife! It was so sweet that they took the time to explain their cooking process to my 6 year old nephew!! Our wedding at the house could not have been more magical! Thank you for all the memories!!

Beaches

If you appreciate beautiful beaches, then you are going to absolutely love Manuel Antonio!

Playa Espadilla Norte – The crown jewel of Manuel Antonio, it is over a mile long. This is the main beach located adjacent to the national park, an easy-to-access public beach with cheap parking nearby. The waves are wild enough for surfing but calm enough for a swimming in it’s warm waters. On the sand, visitors can rent chairs and umbrellas. The south end of this beach has vendors who sell water bottles, jewelry, arts-and-crafts, snow-cones, and can also find parasailing and surf lesson kiosks. The north end is much less crowded but with the same white sand and jungle surrounding. Sunsets over the water are stunning. Vista Hermosa has a private trail through the jungle that leads to the north end of this beautiful beach which is about a 15-minute walk.

Playa Espadilla Sur – Playa Espadilla Sur is just south of Playa Espadilla Norte and is actually an extension of it as it curves seaward to Punta Cathedral. This beach is within the National Park and is situated back to back with Playa Manuel Antonio. The waters are sheltered from the surf by Cathedral Point, this beach is excellent for swimming, and has a panoramic view of Playa Espadilla Norte. Cathedral Point with its forest topped cliffs is connected to the mainland by a thin land bridge that separates beaches Playa Espadilla Sur to the north and Playa Manuel Antonio to the south.

Playa Manuel Antonio – Located within the national park, this beach is on the opposite side of Playa Espadilla Sur separated by this land bridge. Playa Manuel Antonio is a picturesque half mile long, white sand crescent dissecting deep green foliage and is ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

Playa Playitas – Located within the beautiful resort of Arenas Del Mar and happens to be the location for the beach restaurant Playitas Restaurant & Bar. A small but gorgeous beach, you can enjoy 1st class service with excellent dishes with your toes in the sand or just relax in a lounge chair while drinks are served. Vista Hermosa has recently established an exclusive relationship with Arenas Del Mar where guests of Vista Hermosa can utilize their private beach and enjoy beachfront lunch and drinks (with a 20% discount on all purchases). They will even come to the Villa to pick you up so no walking is involved. If you decide to walk, it is only 5 minutes.

Playa Biesanz – This beach is off the beaten path and secluded. White sands with calm and peaceful water, this is a very nice beach to relax. Vendors are available for chair-umbrella rental, drinks, snorkel equipment rental, kayaks and stand up paddle board rental.

Playa Escondido – Located within the National Park, is a wide, horseshoe-shaped beach that can be reached along the Puerto Escondido trail. The beach is situated in a cove ringed by steep cliffs. Playa Puerto Escondido is the most remote of the beaches that can be reached by following a National Park nature trail. The cove and beach can be viewed from above by following another park trail to the clifftops. On a clear day from these cliffs you can see the coastline all the way to the Osa Peninsula.

Zip lining, hiking, water falls, white-water rafting, canyoning, ATV tours, waterfall rappelling, mangrove tours, parasailing, horseback riding, stand up paddle boarding, jet skiing, sport fishing, sunset cruises, and whale watching tours are all available.

Manuel Antonio National Park
