The Space

Manuel Antonio is CR's favorite beach destination, but that can mean being crowded along the one road to the beaches. Our house is 500 yds. off the busy road, on an acre of gardens, private but secure w/ 24/7 on-site caretakers. Anna and Andres have been with us for 13 yrs and are there for any of our guests needs at any time.

Guest Access

The entire house opens up to the outside decks and terraces. Sit on the front deck and use your lap top. Our private pool is perfect for cooling off and watching the wildlife overhead.

Interaction with Guests

Our caretakers respect your privacy, but if you want to practice your Spanish, or cook a Tico meal with Anna she will gladly come to the house or take you to the markets in Quepos.

The Neighborhood

Our neighbor hood is very secure with high end homes and a couple of hotels nearby. The jungle has been allowed to grow back around our neighborhood bring back an abundance of wildlife to our properties. A five minute walk to the main road lets you access buses and taxis, as well as many bars and restaurants within a few minutes.

Getting around

If you don't have a rental car (not necessary) you can call cabs to the house (Andres will line you out with reliable cabs) or walk 5 min. to the main road where buses come by on the 1/2hr or hail a taxi

Other Things to Note

Our are is the most diverse in Costa Rica for white sand beaches and rainforests with all the amenities you could want on your vacation. Within an hour you can drive N. to Jaco or S to Dominical to check out other resorts areas- you'll be glad you chose Manuel Antonio and Casa Tropical.

  • Great property, very spacious, and very lush landscaping.

    The pool was a great size too!

    January 2014
  • Casa Tropical was beyond all our expectations. Beautiful, peaceful and impeccably well-kept house, hidden on a tropical forest hillside... A swimming pool, two levels of verandas with hammocks, a rooftop terrace to watch the sunset, monkeys and toucans paying you occasional visits, all concur to make this place magic. Anna and Andres, who are in charge of the house and guests are very friendly and helpful, and Anna's cooking is simply delicious.

    If you don't rent a car, you can hop on a public bus and go easily anywhere around : Quepos, the public beach, or Manuel Antonio National Park. Andres can also come pick you up at San Jose Airport as an additional service.

    Our family christmas vacation was great, thanks to Steve's Casa Tropical, and I heartily recommend it to you.
