Our neighborhood is ( we think) in the perfect location. Tucked in the jungle just 350 meters from main road, in a quiet neighborhood, but just 2 minutes from everything.
We are 350 meters from the main road where the buses run all day long, approximately every 15 minutes, for about 60 cents. Also taxis are readily available for aprox. $4.00 to the town of Quepos or $6.00 to the main beach.
Other Things to Note
We are on a quiet residential cul-de-sac. Quiet time is 10:00 in outside common areas.
Remember to bring beach towels and to enjoy yourselves!
We had a great stay at the jungle villa. The people were very friendly and helpful.
It was a perfect place to go to the nationalpark.
Paula and Clark were delightful and very helpful. Property is great! Highly recommend to people who prefer to stay away from all the tourist traps and such..still easily accessible to both Quepos and Manuel Antonio. if I could drive, i'd have rented a scooter though, a lot to see around! :-)
do not hesitate to stay here! Jackie is friendly, laid back but still quick to respond and is very helpful with booking your stay, including transportation & other tours you might want to reserve. she will have everything on an itinerary when you arrive including places she recommends to eat & drink around the neighborhood. hang out & enjoy the outdoors: pool, lounge chairs, tables, hammocks.
the property is very pretty & kept up well. the Gecko room where we stayed was clean and comfortable & more than enough for a few days or weeks...or more! We basically had the whole property to ourselves, so that was an extra treat. but i can't speak for how noisy it might become if there are any other people around.
it's just far enough away from the hustle & bustle of the town to feel peaceful (you basically have Manuel Antonio & Quepos to choose from) but it's close enough where walking to some places is easy and/or cab rides are cheap.

About the Host, Clark And Paula
Hi, we are a Canadian couple living the dream!! We thought of this as a pipe dream that we couldn’t really do....Turns out we can!! After a holiday touring Costa Rica we fell in love with Manuel Antonio and in particular, Jungle Creek! We love the service, attitude and atmospheres created by Jackie (previous Manager) and want to not only continue, but build on for that truly “Home away from Home Vacation” that we experienced and now live!! We both grew up on the prairies in Saskatchewan, Canada and needless to say, we are not going to miss shoveling the sidewalk and scraping the ice off our windsheilds!
Together we have 6 children who range in age from 24-36 and also 4 grandchildren and love when they visit!!
We want to welcome all new and past visitors to our beautiful home in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica.
Come as guests...leave as friends!!!
