The room was clean and spacious though a bit of a walk to get to public transportation. I got lost on arrival because I didn't have phone or Internet access. I was able to ask around for help. Overall a nice apartment and a way to be in the local neighborhood. Good air conditioning and wifi.
This studio apartment was wonderful, clean and Ivanna was a wonderful host. It's a little off the main drag but still close to it. We had a rental car and would have been better to have a truck or suv as the road is a bit rough getting in, however if you go slowly you shouldn't have a problem.
The apartment is located in a friendly community. Inside it is clean and modern. Ivania is a great host, she welcomed me with coffee and a nice fruit-platter, and also helped me organise my transport when I was leaving. Highly recommended.
We loved the apartment and Ivania was the perfect host. It is located about a 10 minute walk from town, and although it is a dirt track it is well lit and perfectly safe for walking home at night. The beach is a short 10 minute bus ride down the hill, as is Manuel Antonio park. The apartment has a well stocked kitchen, WiFi, air conditioning and cable TV. Overall a great little place, would
This is a beautiful apartment in a quiet area. It's a studio style place on the second floor of Ivania's building (she lives downstairs with her family). It's quite nice inside: very clean, A/C, flatscreen, a safe (we actually locked our stuff in the safe on accident so make sure you know how it works before you do something stupid -_-). Like most places in Costa Rica, it's a little hard to find the first time around, but once you do, it's easy to spot. I will say that it's quite a ways back on some rough road. We had a 4WD suv, and the weather was good, so this wasn't really an issue for us, but it's worth considering. Ivania is REALLY nice and clearly wants everything to be perfect for your stay. The apartment is really close to the park and to the restaurants and bars on the way to Manuel Antonio. Recommended.
Ivania and her family were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The apartment is quite spacious for a single traveller or couple. However, a couple of words of advice; make sure you have a gps of some kind, be it a sat nav device or Roaming on your smartphone (Waze worked well here) in order to find the apartment, and a 4x4 to reach the house is an advantage. It's not easy to find nor access due to the unpaved roads but once you're there it's very peaceful, secluded and comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay at Ivania's apartment, everything is a brand new and super clean, and has a kitchen, which was exactly what we needed. Much better than any hotel at this price. The apartment is 15 mins walk from the bus stop to Manuel Antonio (which is cheap around 280 colons that are 50 cents, a cab will cost you around 6 dollars from the same bus stop) it's a nice walk, but you will need a flash light at night time. If you have a high clearance vehicle, you won't have any problems driving to the apartment. But we had a compact regular car, which was a bit challenging but definitely doeable in dry season. I would highly recommend to stay at Ivania's apartment.
Ivania is very responsive in written communication.

About the Host, Ivania
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.
