The Secret Garden, a comfortable 2 bdrm/1 bath, full kitchen and A/C. The Secret Garden is a part of the TOP RATED Villas Oasis family run vacation retreat, consisting of only three accommodations, each very private.

Perfect location and within walking distance to several restaurant/stores. The beach and National Park is only a 5 minute drive away.

The property is fully enclosed with beautiful manicured gardens, large swimming pool, BBQ social area, handmade waterfall and a viewing tower.

The space

The Secret Garden has been described as “hidden in paradise”. This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit has its own full kitchen with A/C in the bedrooms. Here you have your own private patio, overlooking the tranquil garden waterfall.

The Secret Garden kitchen has recently been remodeled, receiving all new appliances including the new smooth glass ceramic cooktop. The custom designed wood cabinets and counter top in the kitchen produce a unique Costa Rican vibe.

Attention to detail is definitely a priority everywhere you look. This two bedroom garden unit is perfectly nestled among its natural surroundings and carries a refreshing cross breeze through the entirety of the living area.

The handcrafted river rock shower in the bathroom creates a rain forest style natural energy.

The private side patio is a fantastic area to sit in the early morning to catch the sounds of the tropical birds attracted to the property. Supported by beautiful teak beams contrasted against the continuing theme of the Costa Rican river rock walls.

The Secret Garden is a part of the TOP RATED Villas Oasis family run vacation retreat, consisting of only three accommodations, each very private. The entire property is gated and very secure.

Once you arrive at Villa Oasis you are in good hands. You will have access to your own personal onsite concierge. He will be there to assist you, from booking tours and adventures to picking the right restaurant.

On the property we have a beautiful swimming pool, with a graduated beach style entry to sit and splash before going in. We also have plenty of space around the pool where you can relax on one of the lounge chairs or hammock.

On the other side of the gardens you can enjoy climbing the winding stairway which carries you to the top of our comfortable viewing tower. This is a favourite spot to start the morning with a coffee in your hand while enjoying the sunrise. A great place to enjoy a 360 degree view, starting from the ocean, all the way around to the mountains.

For those who enjoy to BBQ, why not spend some time using our outside grill. Our outdoor ranch / social area is completely covered, with its own exterior kitchen and long hand crafted dining table. This provides enough space to comfortably host up to 20 people.

On the other side of the garden is the viewing tower. Many of our guests love to venture to the top with a cup of coffee and take in the sunrise as a start to the their day.

Many also enjoy that soothing sound of the waterfall which creates that perfect serenity all around the gardens. So no matter if your plan is to entertain friends by the pool or perhaps to relax on your own in a garden hammock. You have found the perfect location.

Jason was the best host. He's super friendly and helped us get settled into the area very quickly. The rooms are clean, well-equipped, and had all the amenities we needed. The pool is a nice touch, as is the outdoor grill even though we did not use it during our stay. The pictures are totally spot on, although keep in mind that the area it is in is not a resort area! There is awesome food in the area, the beach is a close bus ride away. Would totally recommend this spot, as Jason makes you feel like a regular very quickly.

Great location. Restaurants, beaches, parks, etc are all at walking distances. The villas were more than we imagined, It was very beautiful and the concerige was very helpful. Jason was really great; he was able to arrange all our tours last minutes and very helpful when it came to the area around us. Would definitely stay here again!!

Villas Oasis was lovely! We enjoyed swimming in the pool every day of our stay. The location was walkable to stores and restaurants and even the beach if you're down for a hike like we were. The observation tower provided the most beautiful view of the surrounding town and nearby soccer field. Jason was a great on-grounds host and was ready to answer our questions whenever we needed him. We would definitely stay here again should we ever be in Manuel Antonio.

This is the best lodging I think I have stayed at, ever. The grounds are beautiful, the villa had everything and was so nice. They have paid attention to all the little details. And Nadya was incredibly nice and helpful. She gave us tips, coordinated some trips, and even helped us out when we needed to go to the clinic. Such a relaxing place to come back to after a long day out, or just hang out all day. Bus stop right out front and walkable to restaurants. On top of all that it was a good value especially compared to prices at some hotels in the area.

My two sons and I enjoyed our short stay at Villas Oasis. We loved the beautiful decor and finishes in our unit. It was meticulously maintained and very clean. The pool was a great place to unwind and the layout of the property was great. The kids and I enjoyed visiting with the other guests. Jason was a great help and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. He kindly arranged taxis and a fishing excursion for us and helped us with the logistics of organizing a day trip. He was super knowledgeable about restaurants, beaches, markets, etc... We really appreciated his help.

This apartment was perfect for our family's three night stay in Manuel Antonio. Villas Oasis is at the top of a hill in Manuel Antonio itself, and not in Quepos. In my view, Manuel Antonio is a much nicer place to stay than Quepos, and is much closer to the beach and National Park. Both the stunning public beach and National Park are easily accessed from Villas Oasis either via public transportation or private car in about five-ten minutes. This apartment was spacious, clean, and wonderful. We had EVERYTHING we needed, including a great water cooler and wonderful air conditioning, and we relaxed and slept very well. The shower in the unit was incredible. The grounds are secure, private, and amazingly beautiful, and the pool is wonderful to relax in or by at any time of day. We saw beautiful birds just relaxing at the pool after our day at the beach. Jason was very helpful at check in, with any directions we needed, and throughout our stay. It is luxurious to have an AirBnB with daily cleaning, and Villas Oasis had this and someone to do your laundry if you wanted to pay for it as well. Villas Oasis is very close to public transportation, but also has parking and is within walking distance to restaurants and grocery stores. The unit in which we stayed could have easily accommodated five people in the two bedrooms and had a nice day bed in the living room as well. We would stay at Villas Oasis again in a heartbeat and I highly recommend it.

This is a very nice accommodation which is very secure and in a great location close to everything Manual Antonio has to offer. We would have no hesitation about staying her again.

Niclas User ProfileNiclas is a superhost.

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.
