To get to the next public bus station and to the center of Manuel Antonio you have to walk over an unsealed road about 15 minutes or use a car/taxi.
This place is tucked a bit off the main road through Manuel Antonio off a gravel road that can be quite bumpy, you could do it with a car but definitely better with an SUV.
The drive in isn't too impressive and many of the houses around are not in good shape, but don't let it fool you! Once there, the place is great!
New. Clean. Well decorated and outfitted. Was very comfortable to stay in. Ivania is super nice and very helpful.
I would and most likely will stay here again next time I'm in Manuel Antonio. Stayed at many places in Costa Rica and this is possibly the cleanest and nicest.
Ivania is an amazing host! Very welcoming, supportive and amicable. We highly recommend her place, especially for those that want the local traveler experience and are able-bodied and willing to walk, purchase some basics for cooking and explore. Her place is on the edge of the Manual Antonio park, so you see the beautiful stars and hear the amazing jungle sounds. There is also a great swimming spot (which is challenging to find for non-surfers on the Central Pacific) within a healthy walk and affordable taxi down the hill, or a nice walk for those interested in working their quads out. I can't remember the name of the beach, but it's the non manual antonio beach. We adored it, quintessential tropical hide-away.
The room is very nice and cute but i would highly recommend having a car if you plan to stay here. It is $6.00 one way to catch a taxi because of the condition of the road. Once you have done this a few times, you might as well have gotten a room in town. It is technically walkable to manuel Antonio but it is a long walk down a mountain road that has no sidewalks. Quite a hike on the way back up but doable if you are determined. Basically, if you want a more authentic experience than you would get from a hotel, have your own transportation, and dont mind straying off the beaten path then this is the plAce for you.
Malgré une accessibilité reservée au 4x4, nous arrivons dans un appartement très satisfaisant : grand, neuf, confortable, pratique et très propre ! Notre hôte était adorable et très disponible.
Séjour très apprécié chez Ivania. L'hôtesse est très accueillante. Elle a répondu à nos questions concernant la ville et nous a recommandé des endroits qu'on a beaucoup appréciés. L'appartement est parfait. C'est propre, confortable et on avait tout ce qu'il nous fallait. Secteur tranquille (aucun bruit la nuit). Seul inconvénient : la route pour s'y rendre. Elle est très cahoteuse. Le plan fourni par Ivania pour se rendre a été très utile.
When I got to the apartment nobody was there to greet me. The taxi driver had to call to ask for directions on how to get there. The apartment was nice and had everything that we needed, except that internet never worked. I did not know that Ivania was not going to be around to help us. Her daughter Alejandra was not there the day that we arrived. We got there around 2:00 pm We kept waiting for somebody to show up and it did not happen. I had to go out on the street to ask somebody to let me use their cell phones to get in contact with Alejandra. She gave me the password for the internet. The four days that we were there, the internet never worked. The apartment is in the middle of nowhere (it said it on the description). We had to walk for 15 minutes to get to the bus stop. Alejandra was helpful on calling a taxi for us when we needed it, but we had to pay $6 every time we used one. Some taxi drivers did not want to take us back or charged us extra because they knew that the road was not good. The apartment was well kept and Alejandra tried to help us, but I would not stay there again because of their location.
... must have been bad timing and arrival-time was not as agreed, but anyway. In the apartment-description-page everything is mentioned incl. the 15 minutes walk. And we are very keen to make our guests as happy as possible, if they allow us to do – the internet was working 70%, we even put an extra hotspot especially for Lucio and allowed him to use our telephone to call for free.

I am from Costa Rica and love to travel. My favourite country is Switzerland.
Before starting my own business I had worked in 2 major hotels and a Spanish language school her in Manuel Antonio. My hobbies are reading (Paulo Coelho) and cine (all kinds of humor). I also like cooking, traditional Costa Rica food.
