What David and Rene have created is your own private Costa Rican experience filled with a luxury apartment with everything you need, a balcony where you can see look over the rainforest filled with wildlife and even a pool to cool down on hot days.
David and Rene are wonderful and take amazing care of you. They have thought of everything. From a fully stocked kitchen to the great book filled with maps, information, recommendations and more.
My boyfriend and I keep waking up wishing we were back in this beautiful paradise and will be visiting again as soon as we can.
Forget hotels. THIS is the place to stay in Manuel Antonio. You will not be disappointed.
The Villa Mar Y Sol was a wonderful and beautiful Villa to stay at! My family of 4 stayed in the Apartment which ended up being the perfect home for the week for our family. The entire Apartment was spacious and decorated with lovely Decorations and fresh Flowers from the surroundings! We loved that it had 2 King Size Beds and we loved how the Beds were so very comfortable! (With a bad back, one can appreciate a very comfortable mattress on Vacation.) These beds were excellent and very comfortable! We also had plenty of Closet space for all of our clothing.
The A/C kept us very comfortable and Cool! And that was a great perk!
I loved being able to walk out the front door and swim at the beautiful Infinity Pool and then pop out of the pool and go and check on my laundry! It was such a nice amenity to be able to use the Washer & Dryer as much as I needed and that made my family of 4 very happy!
I also cooked breakfast every morning in the adorable kitchen and this beautiful apartment made us all feel like this was our home.
We all enjoyed & loved the AMAZING!!! view from the Balcony overlooking the Treetops of the Jungle and we were able to catch an AMAZING!!! and Brilliant Sunset that will forever be in our memories!
We could smell beautiful flora and hear the sounds of the Jungle as we would watch the adorable wildlife pass right in front of us like the raccoons, monkeys, beautiful birds, hummingbirds and lizards!
We just had a wonderful experience without even leaving the Apartment!
We were offered a cell phone to make local phone calls and David helped us often to arrange Excursion-Tours and Taxi's! He and Renee were the most gracious and helpful and wonderful Host that we have ever met! They both just took such very good care of us and they made our stay one of the BEST!
We feel very honored and blessed to have had such a great experience at the Villa Mar Y Sol and all the honor and praise go to David and Renee!
You will not be disappointed by staying here as they are the BEST Host in Town!!
We loved it with all our hearts!

The house is within a good distance of everything. For about a dollar you can take a bus that is 5 mins to the beach one way or 5 mins to the city another way and runs all day. The whole place is nice and well maintained and the pool is sweet. David was nice and the most helpful host I've had yet and was happy to book excursions for us. Do the ziplining. Park is great too but dont get a guide unless ur in to little things like insects and lizards, you dont need a guide. Youll see all the monkeys and sloths and good stuff with or without one
We had trouble finding the house and got lost in the neighborhood. The location is high above Quepos, with a view of the ocean, many birds and a full hummingbird feeder. Very modern and sleek.
We had a wonderful stay with David. First off we had a beautiful two bedroom apartment with a wrap around deck to lounge on. We also took great advantage of the infinity pool. It was an extremely tranquil place to spend vacation . It is off the beaten path so you either need to rent a car or be ready to take taxi's but that is easy. We were able to use the laundry facilities as well. All in all it was paradise and we so happy to have stayed there for four days. We actually cried when we left. I would return there in a heartbeat.
Excellent Hosts, beautiful apartment and a magical location! David and Rene were wonderfully welcoming and gracious. They booked the canopy tour and a guide at Manuel Antonio Park for us. (Don't do the park without a guide. Estelle, their recommended guide was super knowledgeable!). They also made excellent recommendations regarding restaurants. The apartment was super nice, modern and clean. The balcony and pool make you feel like you are sitting in the canopy with views and sounds of the jungle. It was all very comfortable and peaceful. We rate the host and the apartment a solid 10 out of 10!
This place was fantastic. It was a little ways up the dirt road but I was expecting that based on other reviews. Once there the views were amazing. We felt immersed in the jungle but with luxury amenities. We loved the pool and the air conditioning in the bedrooms. David also gave great food recommendations which we used each day we were there
