These apartments are HUGE! I had a great stay... this is a great, secure location at the edge of Manuel Antonio (right at the end of Quepos), and the pool was so nice to enjoy at the end of each day. (Plus we saw lots of monkeys frolicking in the trees while in the pool... cool!) The only potential issues I should mention are that for some reason the wifi signal was very poor in my apartment (#5) but it was great on my computer, and the unit had an air conditioner in only one of the bedrooms. These are small quibbles for an otherwise excellent stay. Terrific value. Oh, and Dorit could have been more helpful and nice.
The apartment #6 looked better on the picture, so when we arrived we were disappointed. Obviously the owner has not invested much to this place. The nets on the windows had holes, so gecos, cockroaches and other unpleasant guys were coming there. Attention: the apartment for 4 persons has an AC only in one room! Nobody changes towels, so we were using same towels for 3 days, the bedclothes stinked. This place definitely doesn't costs those money! The pool wasn't clean and staff poured a special powder (smells like bleach) right at the time when we were inside.
Dorit was very helpful and replied quickly. Bali-Casa Macaw is a very nice house, suitable for two small families. Squirrel monkeys visit the house in the evening. 10 min walk to Quespos, a frequent 15 min bus to Manuel Antonio.
Après quelques lenteurs pour confirmer ma réservation, l'hôte a été parfait. Toutes les informations m'ont été communiquées en temps et en heure pour ce séjour de 3 nuits.
La situation géographique : c'est parfait, puisque directement sur la route allant vers les plages et le superbe parc Manuel Antonio, et à une dizaine de minutes de marche du petit village où vous trouverez de quoi faire les courses ou diner (il y à même un subway!). A noter également un marché nocturne le vendredi soir au bord de la mer, et le samedi matin, idéal pour vous approvisionner en fruits frais, oeufs, et autres spécialités locales. La maison possède un grand frigo et de quoi cuisiner et diner sur place.
La propriété : ce qui est super rassurant, c'est qu'il y a un garde à l'entrée qui contrôle chaque va et viens. C'est très verdoyant, dans la forêt, c'est un ensemble de maisons perchées dans la forêt, suffisamment espacées pour l'intimité. La Casa Macaw était propre à notre arrivée, très spacieuse, toute en bois !
Une terrasse "suspendue" avec une vue dans la forêt (dommage qu'il n'y ait eu que 2 petites chaises pliantes et pas des transats ou fauteuils plus cossus... car très agréable pour lire et observer la nature).
Cette maison a 2 chambres, chacune sa salle de bain et ses WC. La cuisine est équipée (le lave vaisselle ne fonctionnait pas). Le wifi fonctionnait bien.
Un gros plus : la machine à laver le linge + séchante : idéal pour laver rapidement les affaires de plage / serviettes.
La maison est climatisée, ce qui était agréable. Les lits sont très grands, l'ensemble de la maison est agréable.
Les meilleurs moments : Le matin, vous entendrez les singes hurleurs au loin (enfin, plus ou moins loin), les oiseaux se pointeront sur les arbres autour, et quelques petits singes. C'est le soir vers 17h que nous avons eu une déferlante de petits singes très mignons, une cinquantaine, que nous avons observé depuis la terrasse, un spectacle inoubliable :)
Disponibilité de l'hôte sur place : il y a un accueil ouvert tous les jours jusque 15h, et l'hôte reste joignable par téléphone tout le temps.
A faire/avoir autour : Evidemment le superbe parc manuel antonio, 10$ l'entrée par personne. Tous les parkings autour sont en général payant (entre 2000 et 5000 colones, soit entre 3 et 10$). 3 plages dans le parc, une baignade interdite (présence de crocodiles), l'autre superbe, arrivez-y le matin de préférence.
Les points d'amélioration : la climatisation dans le salon n'était pas très efficace (dans les chambres oui), la maison est en haut d'une pente assez raide, assez flippant pour se garer mais au final on prend le coup. Le mobilier d'extérieur trop sommaire (une petite table et plus de fauteuils seraient bienvenus), à noter que la maison n'a pas de piscine (mais on peut apercevoir celle de la maison d'à côté de la terrasse, un peu frustrant :).
Richard's place was great, and he was very accommodating and helped made our visit less taxing on us. They arranged our tours and answered any questions we had about the town.
The property is nice, there's a grueling hill to hike, but it was a good workout. There is also a spa located within the property that is very nice.
We had a great stay at the Mot Mot house. The villa is in a great location -- about 10 minutes from the beaches in Manuel Antonio and several great restaurants. Dorit recommended some very good restaurants (we loved Barba Roja) and booked a sunset cruise for us. The kitchen was well equipped, although the fridge did not get very cold. Although only two of the bedrooms had air conditioning, we were able to keep cool between fans and the pool. A four wheel drive vehicle is recommended to access the house, because the drive is very steep! The house could also use a little more lighting -- it got a little dark at night. Definitely visit the national park if you stay here! We also loved deep sea fishing (we were able to cook some of the dorado we caught on the charcoal grill...the propane grill was not functioning).
Dorit was excellent and the property was even better than the ad. Would love to come back (I still can't believe we actually left!)
We had a great stay in the apartment, which was well fitted out and had everything we needed.
There's lots of wildlife all around - monkeys on the roof and in the trees, lizards, birds and even a poison-dart frog on the steps.
We are a family with two kids, age 13 and 11. We stayed at a 2-bedroom unit for 5 nights. Dorit was responsive and helpful from early on, and when my husband jammed his shoulder from slipping on stairs, Dorit located a chiropractor for him right away. The location of this place has its advantages and disadvantages. It's within walking distance to downtown Quepos, where you can find groceries, shops, restaurants, etc. However, you have to take a bus or taxi to the Manuel Antonio National Park. It worked out well for us because we only visited the park once and that was enough for us. The place is not that close to the beach, so no ocean views. On the other hand, we liked the security, the quietness, and convenience to shopping areas. We also enjoyed the pool tremendously. The shape and depth were well-designed. My husband was grateful for the one and only AC in our bedroom so he could sleep comfortably at night. All in all I would recommend this place.
Villa Mot Mot was set in some of the most beautiful property I have ever experienced. The staff was very professional and our entire party felt extremely safe. The only draw back was that the hot tub did not function as one but rather an additional smaller pool.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
