Enjoy your stay in Costa Rica how it should be! Nestled in the lush jungle, with wildlife close to reach, in total peace and harmony with nature!
“My girlfriend and I stayed here during the rainy season and it was amazing! We had some time to enjoy the rain in the terrace in the jungle next to the top of the trees, and we really had a great time. We also enjoyed by the pool when it was sunny. At the terrace we saw a sloth like 10 mts away, right in front of us on the "guarumo" tree. Although we're from Costa Rica, this was the closest that we had ever seen a sloth! We also saw monkeys and lots of birds. The sounds of nature are amazing here. We also went for a walk and got to a beach where there was just a few people since it's in the middle of the mountain and you can only get there walking. We definitely want to get back so if you're looking for a peaceful place to be in the middle of the jungle... stay here! :-)”

“I spent a lot of time reviewing the former Guest’s experiences as posted and I was quite quite impressed. As a former President of the platinum advisory board with a major hotel corporation and almost 19 years of “lifetime Elite” status with them I traditionally have always vacationed at hotels. As of the last five years 90% of my travel has been with Airbnb. I’m finding the experiences incomparable. And this property is one of the highest rated I’ve ever seen on Airbnb. Rather than be redundant, because every review talks about the beauty of the property. The incredible immersion with nature. How spotless the home is. How incredible easy it is to work with the host. I would love to try to offer some additional insights. First off I feel a few travel hacks might be useful. Number one, as you’re making your way most likely from San Jose to Manuel Antonio there’s a small town about 15 minutes outside. Stop there and stock up on essentials. Bottles of water, milk for the coffee, and any type of food that you choose to maintain in the refrigerator. The kitchen is very chef friendly. If you go to the market across the street which claims to be organic market, although interestingly it also peoclaims itself a liquor store. in hindsight that’s probably brilliant marketing because you leave no stone unturned! However if you thought Whole Foods was expensive, this makes Whole Foods look like Supervalu market! We literally got water coffee milk and a few other odds and ends and spent $200 for one bag of groceries. So my suggestion is, do like the locals do. When I walk into a restaurant or supermarket and I don’t see any locals eating there I know it’s a tourist trap. There are two main beaches. There’s a big tourist beach which kind of has the feel of Venice Beach California or Hollywood Beach Florida. There’s also a more remote beach that’s very private although you have to walk down a somewhat steep tricky incline path but once you maneuver it you’re at a beautiful beach oasis! (Christopher the Guest liaison can give you more specifics) The best restaurant that we discovered was actually a little falafel house just a few yards away from the house. The best pizza was the wagon wheel restaurant. There is a wonderful little bakery on your way down to the tourist beach on the right hand side that makes amazing coffee and has fresh bakery products that are very reasonably priced. Christopher also referred a wonderful personal driver by the name of Roni. He was always attentive and available for us whenever we needed to go someplace and was about the same price as a typical Uber. I will say that perhaps the most meaningful experience we had was one that you never want to have while you’re on holiday. The very last night my travel companion got very ill. Most likely something he might’ve eaten that didn’t agree with him. But it 10 PM at night his temperature was 102 and it kept climbing, he was also very disorientated. I reached out to Christopher the property manager and within 15 minutes we had a doctor and an EMT by his bedside administering to him. They brought in an IV and pumped him up for the fluids and within 15 minutes he was back on his feet and 100% recovered! Apparently a combination of some sunstroke as it had been almost 100° that day and also probably eating something that didn’t agree with him. My point is you can’t even get that kind of medical care in the States so quickly! I was expecting to at least pay $1500-$2000 For an emergency late night medical team dispatched to a house that administer the personal IV and other medications. I was pleasantly surprised when the cost for everything was just a little over 300 bucks. Less than the cost of an emergency room visit in the States! It’s better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it! But I was so impressed that even that late at night I could get a hold of Christopher and he was involved in something personal but dropped everything to come to our rescue! That is something that you can’t put a price tag on and it makes all the difference when you’re traveling in a different country in a remote area! I really could continue to go on and on but I’m beginning to think that maybe Airbnb limits how long your testimonials can be! So the last thing I’ll add, is I was so impressed by Christopher and by working with Heather. I was so overcome with the beauty of the property and the incredible location. I was inspired to do something that I’ve never done in all my travels. within 10 minutes of walking into the property, I re-booked my next trip back! I can’t think of a greater compliment and testimonial than that factual statement!”

“Martin's home is a treasure of Costa Rica, our spring break plans went from a couple of ideas to an amazing experience thanks to Martin himself. The space was astonishing and more than we could have ever asked for. Manuel Antonio is a beautiful city and this home is tucked away with privacy and an amazing view. The inside has all the amenities we needed and a little supermarket nearby. We would cook within the home with fresh fruits and eggs at the local market. The infinity pool is truly something else. Every night around 5PM we would wait for the small herd of monkeys that come flying through the trees, eating fruit within an arms reach away from the pool. All along with a beautiful west coast sunset every night. But now, the place goes from a 5 star home to a 5-star experience because of the wonderful host himself. Martin personally greeted us at the door and immediately made us feel welcome, he gave us a great tour and offered us some delicious refreshments. Immediately you can sense Martin's passion and excitement for his guests. The minute you book with Martin, he offers you several accommodations for experiences. Whether it is travel/food/activities, Martin has the hookup. We had all of our days unplanned and within a quick 2 minutes, Martin booked us for an amazing next day ATV adventure. Feeling so comfortable with Martin, we invited him to the beach with us and dinner where all the locals knew him and he showed us an unseen experience of the town. Our group will forever remember our trip and dedicate the amazing experience to the prince of Manuel Antonio, Martin.”
