Closest airport is San Jose (SJO), with several options for transportation to Quepos:

I spent one month in this great house overlooking the Pacific ocean with the most spectacular sunsets. It was the perfect place for me to spend time thinking, relaxing but also communicating with my contacts all over the world through the WIFI internet. Thomas is the perfect host, it can’t get any better! He took care of my bookings for the bus from and to San Jose. He picket me up and brought me to the bus station in Quepos. When I arrived, there were fruits, coffee, sugar and creme waiting for me, how thoughtful! On Saturday morning I loved going to the local farmer market in Quepos and get the most delicious fresh fruits, vegetables and fish.
Beautiful place! We absolutely LOVED this place and were blown away when we walked in! The views are fantastic. The house is spacious and very comfortable. We only wished we could have stayed longer. We would definitely stay there again! Thomas was very friendly and accommodating. Not a single negative thing to say about the whole experience. Awesome value... would definitely recommend!!

My friends and I stayed here for 5 days and we absolutely loved it. The view from the terrace was spectacular especially at sunset. Thomas was such a wonderful host he wasn't overbearing but he made it clear that if we had any questions at all he was happy to help. Even before we got Costa Rica Thomas took the time to communicate with me and tell me about sights and activities in the area. Also, we loved the little notebook he left for us which not only had contact information but brochures and descriptions for activities. The apartment was very clean and there's plenty of space. We were on a hillside so we felt like we had plenty of privacy but we could be in the center of town in less than 5 minutes and it's only about 20 minutes away from Manuel Antonio National Park so the location is excellent. If ever I go to Costa Rica again I will certainly stay here.
We had a great time al Casa Amapola and I recommend this spot for your (email hidden)omas was a very nice and helpful host.
The house is very confortable; bedrooms have AC, social areas are spacious and the kitchen is very well equipped. The house is conveniently located: near to the National Park and the beaches. Shops and restaurants are nearby; so I believe this house is a good value for your vacations. Just be aware that the garage is not too big. One car, fits Ok, but taking two cars may not be a good idea.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience at the Villa. Thomas was more than accommodating and helped us with transportation from the Quepos airport. His assistant helped us with the tours we were interested in.
The place has two bedrooms with two king beds, so it will easily and comfortably fit two couples. The kitchen is modern and there are two working refrigerators.
The decor is a bit dated but the place is very clean and has great amenities...free wifi...air conditioning in the bedrooms...laundry can be done for you if requested for a reasonable fee.
The only difficulty we had is that we didn't have a car. The view is remarkable and there are great sunsets...but the property is high up on a steep hill. The walk is VERY challenging if you're looking to go up and down often. A car would also help to get you over to Manuel Antonio.
This property is IN QUEPOS but very close to MANUEL ANTONIO. A bus can get you there for $.50 if you don't have a car.
From our first moment of contact with Thomas, our experience with Casa Amapola was perfect. As we arrived in Quepos, Thomas met us in town and showed us the way to the Casa and, after 6 hours of driving, we were simply blown away by what we got when we arrived. Perched on a hill above Quepos, the Casa -- more like a Villa, really -- opens out onto the most expansive sunset views we have ever experienced. The house is large with high ceilings and a great lay out, the bedrooms are air conditioned and have good beds, and other amenities include a very well equipped kitchen, indoor and outdoor showers and a huge porch. Sunset is amazing, but early risers will also be amazed by the early-morning bird life in the garden. The vantage point of watching the birds from above is fantastic. We loved the house, but were equally impressed by Thomas, who had thought of everything from providing us a nice bowl of tropical fruit, to coffee and cream and sugar. He must have realized that once we arrived that afternoon, we would be in no hurry to hustle out the door the next morning! A+ -- and we're hard markers;)

About the Host, Thomas + Lili
Moved from Switzerland 16 years ago, just love it here! The people are "pura vida", life is so easy, the climate is very healthy! Very lucky to have purchased a big piece of property in the Playa Macha area, declared as green zone, where I offer the Tree House and Villa Malinche. It's almost like the National Park, lot's of wildlife and very peaceful, surrounded by lush rain forest!
My wife Lili is a licensed physic therapist, also with a great dedication for massage treatments, she can make you feel in heaven.... Don't miss an onsite treatment during your stay!
We are happy to share this relaxed jungle feeling on our property with the people we meet through Airbnb. Just lay back in the hammocks, taste the famous coffee and watch the monkeys fly by...
