Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed in the Jungle studio for a week in April, and had a really lovely time. The property is clean and comes with a very well equipped kitchen. It reminded us of a charming, rustic cottage or tree house. It was absolutely lovely to sit outside the very private veranda, and look out at the gorgeous view. I cannot say enough about this veranda! You can spend all day relaxing on it, napping, or observing the wildlife. Every morning began with Howler monkeys calling, followed by a visit from Squirrel and While-faced monkeys, and of course the birds. The variety of birds you can see from the veranda is enormous - don't forget your binoculars!

    All the pictures of the property are accurate. The room has air-conditioning, but if it's not too hot or humid, the fans suffice to make it comfortable. Always keep in mind that you living in the jungle - there will be lots of nature sounds, and you must remember to put all your food in the fridge to avoid ants.
    My only complaint is that the mattress was a bit too firm for my liking.

    There are a lot of good restaurants in the area, as well as a supermarket called Super Joseth a short walking distance away where you can buy essentials.

    We arranged our birding tours in advance, and had three absolutely amazing days with Roy Orozco and a wonderful tour with Berny Sanchez - extremely knowledgeable and friendly guides!

    Overall, I would highly recommend this property!

  • We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our first visit to Costa Rica. The place was fantastic! Not only were the views breathtaking, the location was perfect and the villa was nicely stocked with everything you would need. We spent a lot of time out on the porch, enjoying the hammock, and the monkey visitors! We saw monkeys every day of our visit!

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful property with us!

  • We had a lovely few days in Oasis 1 next to the Villa Nicholas. We really loved the comfortable deck with the hammock and other furniture including a table and chairs so we could eat outside. And the kitchen accommodations were excellent. Best of course were our monkey visitors.

  • My wife and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for a week. The studio and the deck were both spacious and inviting. The deck opened up into the rainforest, and on multiple days, we could see monkeys close by swinging between the trees. It's a great and comfortable place to take lazy days and lounge around, and we much preferred to it to some of the pricier hotels we saw in the area.

    The adjacent hotel is just a few steps away, and the staff were extremely friendly and helped us to book tours and excursions. We'd highly recommend staying here.

  • The studio was just as amazing in person as the photo's. The ambiance of the place feels like a tree house which really adds to the Costa Rica experience. The deck was our favorite part and was a wonderful place to relax or wait for an afternoon rain shower to pass by. We even saw lots of birds and monkeys playing in the trees right off the deck! The location right in the middle of Manuel Antonio was also great with so much within walking distance and the rest just a short and cheap bus ride away. Being right next door and connected to the Villas Nicolas was also great as you have access to their staff (which were great, especially Alexandra!), pool, etc. Overall, this is a fabulous little gem!

  • The Jungle Studio offers everything needed - and the most convincing part: Toucans, Scarlet Macaw and all the types of monkeys as well as Jesus Lizards greet you daily on your veranda / terrace!
    The studio offers a great size bathroom with perfect water flow in lavabo and shower, excellent equipped kitchen with hugh fridge and all the appliances needed and of course - the great terrace with all the animals the country offers.
    If back in Manuel Antonio, then definitely at Sheryl's place,

    Thank you Sheryl!

  • The pictures of this "Jungle Studio" are true to the actual accommodations. It was charming with a lovely view of the Pacific and the jungle surrounded the outdoor living space. Loved the monkeys in the trees and the beautiful pool area. Clean & well appointed. We highly recommend this property and the attached Villa Nicolas.

  • The beauty in Manuel Antonio is quite something. The deck in this studio is just wonderful and the facility itself is great. The place has more than enough space for two people. We were often visited by capuchin monkeys! There is plenty of wonderful restaurants and amenities in the area and the pool access to the hotel next door is great.
