About This Listing
Welcome to Villas Oasis, a large vacation rental house in Manuel Antonio which can sleep up to 14 guests. We are perhaps the most accessible and convenient villa situated comfortably at the very peak of the Manuel Antonio community. This beautiful garden property provides the perfect combination of privacy and accessibility to every major restaurant and tourist spot in the village. The world famous Manuel Antonio beach and National Park is only a short distance away. Villas Oasis is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed vacation together with family and friends and a tranquil spot for couples. We welcome guests who appreciate this calm atmosphere in between their adventures to the beach, park, and local attractions.
The Secret Garden villa has been described as “hidden in paradise”. This elegant yet rustic villa contains all the natural features of Costa Rican fine woods, with cool tile flooring and many modern appliances and finishes. Attention to detail is definitely a priority. This two bedroom garden villa perfectly nestled among its natural surroundings carries an refreshing cross breeze through the entirety of the living area. This provides a fresh and relaxing environment for you to unwind. Whether it is to entertain family and friends or to watch a football game on the big screen TV. The custom designed wood cabinets and counter top in the kitchen create a unique and authentic Costa Rican vibe. The hand crafted river rock shower in the bathroom creates a rain forest style natural energy. This naturalistic theme is woven throughout the whole villa with local Costa Rican artwork and décor. Guests can stand in the kitchen preparing a meal whilst gazing into the surrounding gardens and at any moment open the glass doors and take a 5 second walk into the graduated swimming pool for a refreshing cool down.
The side patio of the garden villa has a private feel to it. Supported by beautiful teak beams contrasted against the continuing theme of the Costa Rican river rock walls. The grassy garden area is scattered with baby palms and banana trees providing plenty space to spread out in your hammock and relax for a morning coffee and book in your hand. This is a fantastic area to sit in the early morning and catch the sounds of the tropical birds attracted to the property.

Interaction with Guests
We have an onsite coordinator who will be happy to help you navigate our special area, we love to share of knowledge of the "locals" including the Saturday farmer's market. We are happy to share where you can see the best sunset, raft the best river and see the most animals.
We are located on a residential street, just behind the church. Our other neighbor is the water company, so it is nice and peaceful at night.
We are located just one block from the local shuttle stop. The shuttle will take you to the national park/beaches as well as the town of Quepos. We do have parking, but most of our guests do not rent cars as it is not necessary.

The home was just as described and we really enjoyed our stay. It was conveniently located and the pool was AWESOME! We had a great time, and a special thanks to Nadja (the concierge) who helped us to book many fabulous excursions and gave us the inside scoop on where to shop and dine.
Our time at the secret garden hidden oasis was paradise. It was in the perfect location. I would recommend renting a car being that it wasn't walkable distant to the beach but it had many stores and restaurants that you were able to walk too. The place was gorgeous. Very well maintained. The pool was amazing to have right outside your door after a long day at the beach. Nadja was amazing, she was there for whatever we needed and was very nice and friendly. She also was helping letting us know which tours and restaurants were the best and which ones she didn't recommend. We can't wait to return.
After a long day of travel, arriving at Villa Oasis was entering paradise. Nadyia greeted us warmly, gave us a tour of the property and a great deal of information on the area. It was great to have a safe place to park the car, a pool available to us at all hours, our own patio, daily maid service, fresh beach towels, and a fresh water cooler. The location is ideal and just what we were looking for.
What a fantastic place to stay! All of our needs were met, the villa was clean with all the amenities and Nadja was so informative. We will definitely be staying here in the future and have already been recommending this place to our friends.
The villa was great - we were upgraded to the larger room with an outdoor shower. It was spacious and very comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed. Shampoo/conditioner and shower gel would have been nice, but we just bought it from the store close by. Nadja the host was very helpful and gave great suggestions.
Our stay at the Hidden Oasis was fantastic! We loved being close to convienances such as groceries, bars, restaruants and the bus to go to the beach. Altho we had a rental car, we did not need it while we stayed there. The pool and outdoor lounge area was nice to relax in at the end of the day, our room was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Nadja was such a great resource to tap into for excursions to do, restaraunts to try and where to get the cheapest groceries. We absolutely loved the location because like mentioned before, it was so convienant to everything, but hidden away in this little tropical oasis. And my husband is big on security and he felt very secure with the fencing and gates around the villa.
Nadja was so helpful and great! She checked in with us daily and booked all of our tours. The cleaning lady vilma was great and super nice. The villas were very clean and comfortable. The outdoor eating area was great for bbqing. We have been traveling in Costa Rica for a couple weeks and this is by far the best experience we have had. Nadja is the best! Highly recommended!

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.
