About This Listing
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.
The studio is arranged with a full kitchen opening onto the dining area, the enclosed bedroom has a queen sized bed and shower room. The apartment is not suitable for more than two people.
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.
Villas El Parque is a short walk from a great selection of restaurants, bars and convenience stores and since you're on holiday they will deliver to you. If the mood takes you, you are moments walk from Spa Hollis for a relaxing massage.
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.

My partner Cathy and I had a wonderful month long stay at this rental property. Tariq was very friendly and helpful with any problems we might have had. He also had some great recommendations for local restaurants. The apartment we rented was nicer than the pictures could make it look. A very positive experience indeed. Thank you, Tariq!
We had a wonderful time at Tariq's place. He gave excellent directions to the condo which is located within a few minutes from the beach and several restaurants. The places was clean and cozy. We were even lucky enough to see a monkey from outside our kitchen window during our stay. I would highly recommend staying here if you plan on spending time in Manuel Antonio.
We had a wonderfull time staying at Tariq's Place. He helped us with all of our questions when we arrived, and were allways easy available. Great guy.
The apartment was just as we expected. Perfect for two people, with a short walk to nearby resturantes and the buss that takes you to the beach and centrum.
We would do it again ;)
The studio flat was exactly what we had expected and hoped for. Well located with good connections to the beach, national park and quepos. Tariq was attentive and helpful in giving advice, recommendations and answering all our questions.
I stayed at Tariq's place with my sister from December (phone number hidden). The apartment and complex is beautiful, with everything you need close by. The studio was actually much more beautiful than it looks in the pictures, with a very nice view out the front window. I really enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen and nice decor.
The area is very safe, with 24 hour security. Overall, it was everything I expected and more. Great location on the hill in Manuel Antonio, close to great restaurants and bars, beautiful view, and a wonderful host!
Definitely give Tariq's studio a try if you're planning to stay in Manuel Antonio for a few days or weeks!
WOW! Can't say enough good things about our experience at Tariq's gorgeous space, in Manuel Antonio, November 29-Dec 9, 2014
The apartment is spectacular, with parking, and a 5 minute walk to the bus to Quepos/Manuel Antonio beach. A 5-15 minute walk to at least a dozen great spots for food and drinks - try the thin crust pizza at El Wagon - and anything at all at Milagro!!
Tariq was very patient in answering my questions before our booking, and even more so with our questions while we were ensconced - where to buy groceries, where to eat, where to get surf school, and most importantly, how to get back to the airport!! After 4 sets of extremely confusing directions FROM the airport, Tariq's help in getting back there in a timely fashion were invaluable!!! Thanks Tariq!!!

About the Host, Tariq
I'm originally from London and my wife is from Trinidad & Tobago. We moved to Manuel Antonio (after only a two week holiday) in 2010 and haven't looked back since.
Lovely food on an open deck overlooking the Park and the Pacific.
Great fusion of local and International food, nice bar and stunning sunsets.
The most accessible and one the best National Parks in Costa Rica. I highly recommend using a guide and can help you find the best.
Isn't this why you came here, regularly voted in the top 20 beaches in the world.
Full service Marina with some great restaurants and stunning sunset views from the Run away Grill & Bar
A lovely beach inside the National Park to relax on after your walk through the jungle.
