We love Manuel Antonio Estates! I stayed here May 1-4th with a group of 8 and it was perfect. The location is walking distance to local stores, restaurants, bars and the Farmer's Market. It's right in the middle of Quepos and Manual Antonio. All rooms have AC. The place is spacious and perfect for entertaining. We even barbecued by the pool. We saw monkeys everyday. It was amazing.
Dorit was also helpful and so was Elias. They helped us arrange a few tours, which we appreciated and greatly enjoyed. I would stay here again and would recommend it to everyone.
Excellent house, excellent concierge, excellent time. Dorit was quick to help with any question or need, along with our concierge, day or night. We had a great at time the house and in the area. Manuel Antonio and beaches farther south are easily accessible with a car and are worth the trip. Overall great spot.
The hosts were great. Dorit was very friendly and helpful, and Elias stopped by every day to check if we needed anything. A girl in our group chipped a veneer and needed a dentist and Elias checked with the various offices and called and made an appointment for her.
The house was excellent, it feels like you're right in the jungle and we saw monkeys and iguanas and coatis from the deck.
We were a group of 6, 2 couples and 2 singles, so the house was perfect. Definitely recommend it.
Wow what a vacation we had and all thanks to the accommodation of Manuel Antonio Estates!
We were a family of six and stayed for a week at this house. Dorit from the beginning made booking, traveling, and answers to all our million questions, easy and simple. We arrived later evening, after the sun had set, the first night and there was a staff member waiting to greet us. He welcomed us and took care of our ever need! The property is beautiful and very safe. Easy to get to the beach and the downtown area for dinners and nightlife. We will surly be back and can not thank the staff at Manuel Antonio enough for such a great stay. The house also has great AC, I was actually freezing at night which was not complainant when you're sun burnt and exhausted from the heat all day! If you are looking to go to Manuel Antonio this is the place to stay!
We loved the home (Mat Mat house) we stayed in. It was clean and with many conveniences. It was great for our teenagers and offered great space. We enjoyed using the pool and seeing the monkeys go through the trees in the morning and evening. There was AC in two rooms and ceiling fans throughout which kept the house cool. Windows with screens could be opened in the kitchen. Porches everywhere were nice. We would love to stay there again.
The toddlers in the house needed constant supervision since the upstairs railing had wide slots. They slept safely in a downstairs bedroom with their parents who brought a gate.
We really appreciated the list of activities provided and the transportation that was included when Dorit made the arrangements for us. Dorit also gave us excellent recommendations for places to visit or to dine in.
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).
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.
