This cute little one bed in one of the best locations in Manuel Antonio is hard to beat for value. It has a lovely jungle view with the Pacific in the background. A pool, A/C and minutes walk from the best restaurants in town.
Located in Villas El Parque at the heart of Manuel Antonio, this self catering studio/one bedroom comfortably sleeps two guests.
Centrally located close to The National Park and the beaches. You will often see Squirrel, Capuchin and Howler monkeys, a wide array of tropical birds and if you're lucky a sloth or two.

You have view of the Ocean from the kitchen window which has stools and a bar where you can have your coffee. Note we are on the lower level so the view is slightly obscured. Our other apartments listed on this site do have the "million dollar" view so if that is essential then please check them out.

There are excellent bus and taxis services which take you in one direction to the National Park and beaches and in the other to Quepos and the Marina Val Pez, should you fancy a day on the water fishing some of the most exciting waters in the region, if not the world.

Tariq's condo was perfect for what we needed, a nice clean kitchen to cook in and view to look out,monkeys inhabited the trees quite regularly there and can see them from your kitchen window. It sits atop the highest point in Manuel Antonio and is easy to walk whichever way to restaurants or bars,plus you get a great vantage point when storms roll in and watch the show. I highly recommend staying here and absorbing the beauty around you. Everything you need is there and the staff at the reception are more than exceptional. The air conditioning in the condo is a lifesaver as well,the humidity here is a killer.
Thank you Tariq
The apartment and area were lovely. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was a little shop very close by and a large supermarket about ten minutes walk away. We had fun walking to the beach and could recommend blue horizon surf lessons and ADR rafting.
Tariq even gave us a lift to the bus stop for our transfer to Panama.
A super place. Highly recommended.
We didn't have a cell phone and we were traveling thru the public bus system so Tariq was very accommodating and flexible with our check in. Condo was as advertised. We walked 20 mins down to the beach and took the bus back up. Tariq gave us great recommendations for food and the front office of the complex was also very helpful in booking tours, even on the same day. We were also able to walk to most restaurants that we ate at.. We also liked having access to his laundry room. It was also convenient to have a grocery store and bank ATM steps from the complex. We would definitely stay at this condo again!
It was a pleasure meeting Tariq and he was a wonderful host. He addressed all my questions in a very timely manner and promptly corrected any concerns. The apartment was nice, clean and looks just like the photos. The bed was quite comfortable and I never felt unsafe. There were places to lock up your valuables as well.
This apartment is in a wonderful, centrally-located area of Manuel Antonio. I saw monkeys, birds and other wildlife outside the kitchen window! There are restaurants, gift shops, and a market adjacent to the place. The local bus can get you to the beach in five minutes and the tours can pick you up right outside your door.
I would definitely stay with Tariq again and recommend his places for simpler travelers looking for a great experience!
We had a great time at Tariq's place - the condo was close to the beach, Manuel Antonio park, and surrounded by good restaurants. Tariq was helpful and gave us excellent recommendations, helped us set up our tour of the park, and made sure we had what we needed to enjoy our trip. The place was clean and well-maintained, and was a great base of operations for a fantastic vacation.
Tariq was an excellent host. He helped us arrange transportation from the airport to Manuel Antonio and met us out front to show us the place. The condo looks just like the pictures and is in a safe and secure complex. We were within walking distance of lots of shops, a bank, markets, restaurants, and bus stops. The location is perfect and we could easily cook/store our meals in the kitchen area. We saw beautiful sunsets from our room and we were provided a safe and extra locked door to keep our valuables. We had a ton of fun and Tariq was easily reachable and had lots of suggestions. We would definitely stay here again!! (Lots of monkeys too)
Tariq was great, I can only say good things about him! I stayed for 8 nights and I am sure I will go back in the next few months! The apartment was very comfortable and nicely kept up.
One thing Tariq made clear and is worth repeating. The complex has 18 apartments but only 6 are managed by Tariq. THESE ARE GOOD ONES!! Do not take notice of any other reviews you might find on the internet for the adjoining apartments as they are in completely different management.
From start to finish I had no problems at all at the apartment and everything stated in the ad for the apartment was as good as Tariq said. It was much better equipped than I thought it would be and I made nearly all my meals there. There is a handy supermarket around the corner.
The apartment has a good size pool which was often empty and I was happy to have it for myself.
The hammock was perfect on the balcony and I enjoyed drinking my coffee overlooking the beautiful view of ocean.
The apartment is right on the bus route to the beach and National Park and goes by regularly every 20 mins. Or you can go into the town of Quepos.
