The space

The Hideaway fits its title perfectly. This beautiful one bedroom is situated upstairs with its own private gate before the well lit stairway. Full of its own unique charm and personality, this has been a favorite for many couples. From the moment you open the door you feel the welcoming atmosphere and friendly feeling of the Costa Rican wood.

The Hideaway kitchen has recently been remodeled, receiving all new appliances including the smooth glass ceramic cooktop. Our guests seem to have chosen some of their favorite features, these include the unique bedroom view of the garden, cool breeze, the clean cottage feel and the spotless hotel style bathroom.

Whether you are looking for romantic intimacy, or a two bed sleeping arrangement, this apartment can serve both purposes.

The Hideaway is a part of the TOP RATED Villas Oasis family run vacation retreat, consisting of only three accommodations, each very private.

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 favorite 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.

The neighborhood

Villas Oasis is perfectly located in the very center of Manuel Antonio, this is an excellent spot to experience a taste of the exciting Costa Rican culture. Close by we have the popular Manuel Antonio “outdoor food court”, there you will find a great selection of restaurants. Depending on your taste you will discover a selection of Mexican, Sushi, fish tacos, fried chicken, and traditional Costa Rican food.

Since each unit in Villas Oasis comes with a fully equipped kitchen our guests have the freedom to find well stocked supermarkets close by and prepare their own breakfast, lunch or dinner!

We are 1.5 miles (2.4 km) and about a 5-10 minutes drive to the main beach and the world famous Manuel Antonio National park. Most people like to take the public bus that runs every 20 minutes and picks up at a bus stop close to our property. The cost is 60 cents each way.

We are located on a beautiful hillside, so while it is possible to walk to the beach, the roads are narrow and Costa Rican drivers are not the most careful out there, so we don’t recommend walking.

Manuel Antonio is the central hub for some of the very best and most professional tour companies in Costa Rica. Zipline, whitewater rafting, yoga, surfing, sport fishing, the popular sunset cruise and much more.

Villas Oasis is proud to have a longstanding relationship with the very best tour companies in the area. Thanks to this, all of our guests enjoy the convenience of being picked up and dropped off right outside the property.

Getting around

Due to our central location, most of our clients choose not to rent a car while staying at Villas Oasis, they tend to save their money for more fun activities :)

We have a public bus stop with busses running down to the beach and downtown Quepos every 20 minutes.

For those what might choose to rent a car, it it is not necessary to have a 4 wheel drive. In our area, most of our roads are in good condition all year round.

Other things to note

Villas Oasis was built by the us with our own hands, you will see personal touches throughout the property. We believe this is why we consistently land at the top of travel review websites. Pura Vida!

This place was everything we were looking for and more. The facilities were exceptional, location was perfect and they had everything we could've possibly needed on the trip. The customer service was phenomenal as well. I would highly recommend this location to any one traveling to Manuel Antonio!

Loved this place. Great location, tons of restaurants, shops, stores within easy walking distance. There is one main road in Manuel Antonio that winds around the town, everything is located off of this street and its quite a site to see. The road is lined at every turn with a hotel, restaurant, shop, store, travel guide, etc. You don't need a car since the public transit is cheap and runs very frequently up and down the main road (ending at the Manuel Antonio National Park and turning around again). We did have a rental car though, and felt very safe parking it on site behind the automatic security gate on the property. They do a great job of keeping this place gorgeous; landscaping is so pretty and the blue pool is the focal point of the shared courtyard. There are 3 separate accommodations in the same building but it's still very private. Other than sharing the pool with another couple one afternoon, we didn't see other guests. We did chat it up with the property manager Jason on more than one occasion! When we first arrived he brought us up their look-out tower (near the pool) to give us the rundown of the town. Such a cool sight to be able to see all around, one of the higher points in town so you get a panoramic view. Can't quite see to the ocean but its so close! Great place to have your morning coffee and watch the sunrise. This is the smaller of the 3 accommodations on property. The 1 AC unit cools down the whole place. Open floorplan. They have a housekeeper who comes every day. Small bathroom but it's really all you need. This apartment has a new water heater for the shower located actually in the shower stall, so hot water is very reliable! Big windows all around, great views of trees & flowers. Informative house manual/binder with ideas of where to go and what to do, based on proximity to the villa. There is a great surf shack type pavilion on the property with a grill, countertops, sink, picnic tables. If we come back, we would definitely stay here longer and buy food to cook out more! We ate out every meal for our short stint in Manuel Antonio. Right across the street was Sancho's Tacos, so tasty and an Americanized. We loved La Lambretta Pizzeria - ate there TWICE! Probably one of the best views of the ocean and jungle of a restaurant on the strip. Near there was Cafe Milagro, delicious breakfast & coffees. We were looking for seafood one night and walked to Mar Luna for a fancier dinner out. Worst meal in Costa Rica! Plenty of other places to try. Manuel Antonio National Park is the main attraction, really what the whole town is built on. The first time trying to get there (in a rental car) it was very confusing because there are parking attendants all along the road trying...

The villa was comfortable and very well located. Jason and Vilma made it feel like home. The food at El Angel nearby was delicious - try the chicken soup. I will definitely return!

Had a great stay here! Jason, the manager who runs the place, was awesome. He provided ample amenities and great suggestions of things and places to check out. He was there to answer any of our questions, helped fix anything that wasn't working, and hung out with us. The place is very nice, clean, and serene. There is a pool, hammocks, and privacy!

Beautiful garden with pool, hamacs and communal area. Only three apartments so it's private but not isolated. Tower provides a view of the sunset and sunrise. Excellent host.

This apartment was a 10! Very centrally located within Manuel Antonio area but not with all the tourist hotels, restaurants, etc. We stayed in the Hideaway which was a 1 bedroom, with living room and kitchen combined. The place is very comfortable and has all the amenities you would need. What is really nice is the air conditioning, so after a hot day at the beach you can cool down. There is also a small swimming pool. "The Tower" is a nice place to watch the sunset from and you have views of both the mountains and the ocean. Its a quick 5 minute drive to either the beach or Manuel Antonio National Park. A tip for the park....arrive at 7 a.m.!! This way you can get your ticket, and be one of the first in the park. They limit the number of visitors and if you aren't there early, you won't get in, or you will stand in the hot sun for hours. By arriving early you also get to see a lot of animals before the crowds arrive. We did not hire a guide and felt we saw enough on our own, but the guides are readily available if you want one. I would definitely recommend this place. One of the highlights is Jason....your onsite host who knows all there is to know about the area and is very helpful.

Manuel Antonio has been our favourite spot in Costa Rica, and Villa Oasis is a lovely place to stay. It is very well situated in Manuel Antonio Hills, 50metres from a bus stop that has buses every 10 mins to take you to to Quepos, the beach or Manuel Antonio Park - for just 50p. The villa itself has a lovely feel, with a well looked after pool, beautiful garden and a BBQ area with hammocks. The perfect spot to relax or chill out after a hot day at the beach. Jason manages the villa, and was an excellent host. He went the extra mile to introduce us to Costa Rican life, how to get around, the best beach spots to go to, and some great restaurant recommendations. He will look after you well!

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.
