My boyfriend and I stayed at the Oasis 1 studio for a week- we couldn't be happier with our choice! It was quiet, relaxing and very clean. The balcony had a great view of the jungle and the ocean, as well. We spent our first day in Costa Rica just relaxing in the hammock reading while we had some monkey visitors! Our favorite part was listening to the afternoon thunderstorms from the balcony. The studio was very big, had a nice television that included American channels, four ceiling fans, and an A/C. The room was always comfortable for us especially after spending the day in the Costa Rican humidity! Having the hotel services of Villas Nicolas was a great addition to our stay. Those at the desk were super helpful and even set up transportation to and from the airport with their driver- Francisco (very nice man!) for $150 each way because the bus system was too confusing for me to figure out online. The pool was very tranquil and the surrounding wildlife entertains you. I also HIGHLY recommend eating at the restaurant that is located within Villas Nicolas, we went to several restaurants around MA and honestly found ourselves with Kenneth being our favorite chef! Oasis 1 was in the perfect location and the bus stop was located right outside so access to the beaches and Quepos was very convenient (many locals on their way to the beach offered us rides and we took them up on their offer, very nice people) The only thing about the studio is that it is pretty dark and we couldn't figure out how to use the light on the balcony, otherwise everything was amazing. Thank you Sheryl for making this an awesome deal, as well as the staff of Villas Nicolas for all the help. We would certainly stay here again!
Le logement de Charming Jungel était tel que vu sur le site. La grande terrasse est extraordinaire et donne un accès visuel à la faune directement grâce à la végétation luxuriante autour. On a pu y observer à tous les jours surtout des singes capucins, des singes hurleurs et des singes écureuils. On a vu et entendu une variété d'oiseaux.
C'est vrai qu'on entend les voitures mais ça ne nous a pas empêché de dormir.
En ce qui concerne la cuisine, c'est vrai qu'il y a de petites fourmis mais il s'agit de ne rien laisser traîner sur le comptoir.
La climatisation était parfaite et la piscine un beau complément à la plage.
L'autobus arrête à la porte, à peu de frais et passe fréquemment. Il nous amène à la plage et au Parc Manuel Antonio rapidement.
On a pu réserver des excursion à l'aide de la réception de la Villa Nicolas.
Globalement, nous sommes très satisfait de notre séjour.
I just returned from a three week stay at Sheryl's lovely jungle studio in Manuel Antonio. What a lovely place! I was taking Spanish classes at Di Amore's school located only about 5 minutes from the studio, so I spent most of my time resting and studying on the beautiful large patio. The view was amazing and the monkeys visited a few times a day. The bed was comfortable, I always felt safe and they cleaned the place twice a week. I highly recommend this place!
L'appartement est confortable, propre avec une superbe vue depuis la grande terrasse. On entend le bruit des vagues, on voit l'océan. Aussi, on a vue des singes hurleurs, des capucins, des oiseaux et un iguane vraiment de très près. Il y a hamac pour se reposer,. La table pour manger est dehors et il y a une corde à linge pour sécher nos vêtements. On a profité du poêle à gaz pour la cuisine et à d'autres moments on est allé au resto, le Agua Azul qui se trouve à 2 minutes à pieds est délicieux, l'épicerie est à côté. L'autobus est facile à prendre quand on ne veut pas marcher pour aller à la plage. Par contre, il faut laisser la porte fermée en tout temps car deux fois in cafard est entré. On a malheureusement pas eu le temps de profiter des installations de la Villa Nivolas (piscine, resto). Nous sommes allées faire de l'équitation avec ranch tipico don Juan. 75$ qui inclus transport, jus, fruits frais, eau et lunch. La vue dans les montagnes est époustouflante et les guides nous expliquent beaucoup sur la forêt. L'activité n'est pas trop exigeante, on fait en réalité 2 hres Max d'équitation.
The Oasis Jungle Studio Apt was larger than we had expected for a studio - more like a 1 bedroom apt with a large balcony. It is a little on the dark side. The AC and the lovely pool were very much appreciated in afternoons. The pool is a great temp with lovely surroundings. The Jungle apt is just off the busy road so it is noisy - not as secluded as it might sound to be. Julio and Alex were very helpful with setting up tours and making good restaurant selections. We especially liked Emilio's and we loved Henry as a guide for Manuel Antonio Park. I had very little interaction with Sheryl.
This was slightly different than most of our Airbnb experiences as we had access to the hotel next door. Being able to book tours and use the hotel pool in the humid heat were nice bonuses. And with several restaurants in walking distance, we were able to keep our car parked during the entire stay.
The apartment does feel a bit like a treehouse in the rainforest. On one day we spotted some monkeys and toucans in the tree tops while we were enjoying the wonderful large private balcony.
This is far from the quietest place (the studio and Manuel Antonio in general) that you'll find in Costa Rica. As others have noted, you can hear some traffic on the road outside the studio, though it isn't too loud or distracting. We also heard loud fireworks on most nights. We were there for 4 nights including New Year's Eve, so I imagine it might be quieter and calmer during less busy times of the year.
If you are coming to Manuel Antonio, I do highly recommend this studio. It was a very nice experience overall.
We could not have been more happy with the space. Monkeys were absolutely everywhere, which was so much fun! The patio is an oasis unto itself.
The bed was extremely comfortable and the apartment was exceptionally clean. The shower was nice and large and there is also an outdoor shower to take care of all the sand so that you don't track it into the apartment.
We stayed 6 nights. It's true that there's quite a bit of road noise, but we got used to it and that's what you get in Manuel Antonio as most amenities are located on the busy street.
The front desk at Villa Nicholas were very helpful and took care of everyone one of out requests (Julio was wonderful). The pool was a huge bonus and the restaurant was nice. The grounds of the villa are immaculate. The apartment is located beside a bus stop that will have you at the beach and national park in under 5 mins, or Quepos in 10.
There are lots of restaurants around that serve wonderful seafood. If you are needing groceries, take the bus into Quepos to the Pali - you'll save a lot over going to Manuel Antonio's Super Joseph, which stocks North American goods at high prices.
Great value - Manuel Antonio is a must-see! We would love to stay in Sheryl's jungle studio again!
