This location was absolutely amazing!! I was here with 11 friends and the Villa was the perfect place for us to call home. Nadja, our concierge, make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She answered all questions and booked a white water rafting trip for us last minute that helped make our trip. The individual villas, pool, grill/hammock area, and the view tower made this place a hidden gem in the area. Our group was extremely pleased with the location and I know that if I ever make it back to Costa Rica I plan on staying here again. I highly recommend this location for anyone traveling to the area.
Our stay at Villas Oasis was wonderful all around. The nine of us had plenty of space and enjoyed full use of the property including refreshing dips in the pool. The location was near many restaurants and a short bus ride to the beach or park.
Prior to the trip, communication with Niclas, Heather and Nadja was always prompt. They did a wonderful job of answering questions and addressing any concerns. Nadja in particular did a wonderful job of making our trip easy and comfortable. Her helpfulness in planning excursions and providing restaurant suggestions was wonderful.
Overall our trip was wonderful and we felt very welcomed and comfortable. I would happily recommend Villas Oasis to anyone staying in Manuel Antonio!
So glad we found Villas Oasis! The little compound of private apartments was the absolute perfect site for our group of friends. We had 14 people (including many couples) and had no problem fitting everyone comfortably into relatively private individual spaces. The common grounds were brilliant for both partying & relaxing via the big outdoor grilling/dining area & the pool + garden.
On-site concierge, Nadja was incredible- with advice and recommendations for lots of activities/dining/adventures in the surrounding areas. She helped us arrange for on-site chefs during our mini "wedding" in the garden, as well as booked any and all accommodations our group needed. The gardens were beautiful & impecably maintained, and Vilma kept our rooms clean and tidy throughout our stay.
The only thing I would note is that the accommodations are more like "apartments" in one giant house, rather than separate houses. Although they all have different and private entrances, it would be hard to find privacy in the pool/grill area if you happened to stay here at the same time as a large family or group. It was perfect for us as we rented all 3 locations at the same time. I can't imagine there could have been a more suitable arrangement for our large group- each and every one of us was in love Villas Oasis & can't wait to come back!!
Hands-Down, 100% to this lovely little property!
I can't say enough great things about Villas Oasis, the location, beauty, ownership, and staff. We had a large wedding party stay on the property for a week. It was absolutely perfect! Right around the corner from a grocery store and restaurants and an easy (and cheap) bus or taxi ride to/from town and the beach. The staff went above & beyond in taking care of our group, from arranging a private chef, working with our wedding cake baker and florist, to coordinating and booking all of our excursions. Nadja, our concierge, was particularly helpful in the year and a half of planning our destination wedding. She was absolutely amazing!
The property is really beautiful and lush. Fantastic outside pavilion/bbq area for relaxing with friends, nice pool with plenty of seating, a lookout tower for even more beautiful views, air conditioned rooms, and super comfy and beautiful units (ALL of them). Really nice!
Our group had such a wonderful experience at Villas Oasis that it's planted the seed of revisiting every year!
STAY HERE! I highly recommend Villas Oasis for your visit to Manuel Antonio! Nadja was an amazing host and help book surf lessons within our first half an hour of arriving. When the fridge upstairs took a while to cool down she opened up another apartment for us to place our things in it's fridge even though we had not rented that apartment.
The property itself is amazing and all the facilities are top notch! We spent countless hours swimming in the pristine pool, lounging in the hammocks in the rancho or rocking in the chairs on the porch.
We had 10 people and never felt that the property was crowded. If you are just a couple looking for a small private place to crash during your visit to the park and beaches, or a huge family of 10-14 that want to occupy the whole site, book with Villas Oasis! Thanks again, Nadja!
Beautiful, well-supplied and up-to-date facility, sparkling clean pool and house, wonderful and very service-oriented hosts who helped with tours and transportation and so much more, perfect location. Our family of 13 loved our home away from home and the ease of having fun together and hiring Paige, chef-extravagent, to fix dinner right at the house. We can't imagine a better spot for us! Everything is as beautiful as the online pictures suggest.

About the Host, Heather
Niclas, born in Sweden, felt at an early age the urge to explore the world. Traveling extensively in Europe prior to turning 20, he then took his backpack and left for Barbados and the Caribbean Islands, and continued on to Bali and Indonesia for months at a time. A few years later he got a job in the music industry, working for the legendary rock band Metallica, which made him move to the band's home base of San Francisco. Working closely with the band during their concert tours, introduced him to every part of the world; the perfect combination for his passion for Travel & Music. After 10 years of traveling all over the world, he decided to retire from touring and focus on family life. After a visit to Costa Rica, he felt Costa Rica was the perfect place to move to. "It almost felt like Sweden in that it was very safe, with wonderful people, a great place for children to grow up in. But unlike Sweden, there is no cold dark winter to endure." It became obvious that he had finally found his "endless summer", where he could surf everyday and enjoy the relaxed pace of life that the Costa Ricans are so famous for.
His wife Heather is American, from Virginia. She is a teacher who has extensive experience working with non profit organizations and enjoys very much assisting local aid organizations in teaching English to underprivileged women and children. The family has lived in Costa Rica now since 2003, including their four children; Zakkary, Travis, Cruz and Karisma.
