About this listing

Our comfortable studio, the Monito Feliz, is located very close to the Park and near beaches, making it the perfect place to stay! Located between Quepos downtown and Manuel Antonio town, you can rest nested in the jungle, and you'll love the swimming pool!

The space

This bedroom comfortably fits two pax. Our commodities include: A/C, hot water, full kitchen, cable TV, Wifi, safe parking, swimming pool, and private bathroom. We can accommodate max 4 pax for an extra fee ($10/p), very comfy queen-size bed and a sofa will make you stay very enjoyable.

The kitchen is fully equipped with coffee maker, toaster, electric stove, fridge, microwave and dishes. We also have a grill if you like grilling by the pool!

Just 10 minutes (or less on car!) from Manuel Antonio National Park and near beaches. The bus stop is very close by also. You can enjoy swimming in the pool after a warm day at the beach, or just hanging out at the "rancho".

You will definetely have a special retreat in the jungle, we get daily visits from Titi monkeys, toucans, and many other animals. There is a delicious 100% costarican restaurant just outside the property. Take a challenging 45 min. hike through the mountains to Playa La Macha, a secluded beach close by.

Safe neighborhood, family owned property. Take a bus to Quepos or the beach, or wait for a taxi just 200 m away from the studio.

Russ's place was very quite and clean. The pool is shared but there was never anyone else in it that I saw and I was there for 3 days. I had everything that I needed, The air conditioning and shower work very well. This space was just minutes away for places to go and things to do in Manual Antonio. The park was great! I spent 6 hours there one day. The hosts are very gracious, helpful, and welcoming. I would go back!

Russ's home is beautiful. We managed to watch the wildlife as we chilled out by the private pool and being so close to the bus stop to Quepos and Manuel Antonio, it really is a great location. We really enjoyed our stay, and can't thank Russ and his wife enough for being so friendly and welcoming.

Wonderful location and charming hosts! We had a great time here and would recommend it for others. It's a little hard to find but Russ gives good directions and was very helpful. This spot is an amazing value and a great way to see Quepos/Manuel Antonio!

We had a lovely stay at Ana and Russ' place. The apartment was nice and clean and close to a quiet beach. Ana and Russ were very friendly and welcoming and offered a lot of tips for the area. We definitely recommend staying with them!

What a kind and gracious host! Russ greeted us, gave us several phone numbers, and helped with some quick questions about the area. His place was very nice and the well-stocked kitchen / grill was great to have! It's easily accessible but also seems hidden away / private. Great view from the pool!

What a perfect location, and the kind folks at the restaurant right around the corner helped us with key logistics -- other than that we had lots of solitude, a gorgeous pool/deck yard, house was stocked, clean, really nice.... I feel lucky we found this one, I recommend it highly!
