About this listing
Welcome to Villas Oasis, a large vacation rental house in the center of Manuel Antonio. It has a flexible floor plan and may be rented as a self contained resort that sleeps up to 14 or as three individual private units.
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 Hideaway Villa fits its title perfectly. The smallest of the three villas, this beautiful one bedroom is situated upstairs with a private gate before the well lit stairway leading to the entrance. Full of charm and personality, this villa has been a favorite for many couples. Clean, modern and extremely comfortable. As soon as you swing open the door you feel the welcoming atmosphere of the rustic colors and Costa Rican woods. The spacious living area is surrounded with natural tropical fine woods. The tinted windows enhance the outside garden colors and create a refreshing yet warm ambiance inside the villa. Whether you are looking for romantic intimacy, or a two bed sleeping arrangement, this villa can serve both purposes.
Favorite features of the Hideaway includes the bedroom view of the garden view, cool breeze, the unique clean cottage feel and the spotless hotel style bathroom.

We are located one block from the public shuttle that can take you to the national park/beaches and also to the town of Quepos. We do have gated parking, but most of our guests do not rent cars.

Living area of the Hideaway, There is a full kitchen, stove, everything you need to prepare your own meals
We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights and it was very nice. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was good because we could walk to numerous restaurants and grocery stores, or a short taxi ride to Quepos or the beach.
Beautiful getaway right in the heart of Manual Antonio! Villas Oasis grounds are impeccably kept, complete with fresh bananas and mangoes growing in the garden and an exquisite outdoor pool and patio. While each room is complete with an open kitchen set-up, my husband and I preferred to grill outdoors and take advantage of the great outdoor kitchen and eating arrangements outside. The atmosphere (complete with several hammacks!) and is serene, but you are only minutes away from several restaurants (casual and more formal dining) and two supermarkets. While you can easily walk a bit in either direction, due to the lack of sidewalks, I recommend taking a short cab ride if you are going far in either direction. Nadja was an amazing hostess- helping us arrange for all our activities, rescheduling cancelled activities, and giving us excellent advice about the area and local customs. She is warm and extremely helpful, and can answer just about any question involving your stay. She is very good at what she does. Would definitely come back here- great for a couple or a larger group!
Nadja was there to greet us when we arrived. She was so helpful for the entire trip. The room was very clean, the garden and pool were beautiful. There were lots of amenities available. It is by the road so it's easy to get to restaurants and beaches without a car. We really enjoyed our stay!
Villa Oasis is in middle of all the activities at Manuel Antonio. Very convenient next to all the restaurants, grocery stores, bus stop and a short bus/ taxi ride away from National Park entrance or town of Quepos. Still the place is secluded with relaxed feel to it. Nice clean rooms, great swimming pool, waterfall, barbeque area and nice open lounge.
Nadja is a great host. She is absolutely amazing and went out of the way to make our short stay beautiful and enjoyable. Before we arrived, she was ready with the list of activities, restaurants and places of our interest. We decided to go to farmer’s market and she came along with us and helped communicating with the locals as we were not fluent with the local language. I can go on and on about her and this time we realized the importance of great host in a vacation rental.
Listing was beyond accurate. We stayed at the hideaway room, perfect room, very cute, clean, full kitchen, hot water in the bathroom, AC worked perfectly. the pool was very very nice as well, Nadja was amazing and helped us have a romantic dinner our last night, she also helped coordinate our excursion; she gave some amazing advice for restaurants and things to do.
this was the most relaxing part of our vaca and we loved our stay here. will absolutely be back ! Pura Vida!
Villa Oasis was a great landing place for our Costa Rica vacation! The pool and amenities were beautiful and well kept ... everything was perfect. Nadja was so helpful and the rooms clean with everything we needed. Nearby restaurants were a great and the beach a short bus or cab away. Will be coming back. Thanks so much. We even stayed two extra nights.
What an AMAZING place! Nicest place we stayed in Costa Rica! Pool was fantastic, outdoor BBQ area and hammocks were amazing... everything was perfect. Nadja was so helpful in setting up trips, it was truly effortless for us. SO SO SO wonderful! Will be coming back if possible. :) Couldn't be happier with this place! A true Gem!

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.
