We are tucked away on a hillside in the jungle with tremendous ocean views and yet we are less than a 5 minute walk to 3 restaurants, 1 is very typical and cheap, they have karaoke a few nights a week and there are ping pong, pool and foosball tables, this is a fun place and a great place to take the kids to. The other 2 are at the beautiful new marina with amazing sunset views. The town of Quepos is a 10 minute walk and you will find everything you might need there.
You will find the bus station and taxi's in a 10 minute walk to Quepos central, or we can call a taxi to pick you up at our place. We have parking available at our place if you have a rental car.

We never did meet Marta and Douglas, but when we arrived we were immediately greeted by a family member who showed us to the apartment we had reserved. He supplied us with good information about the area and whenever we needed something such as a taxi, he or another were happy to accommodate us. We enjoyed the view overlooking the marina and pool, which we took advantage of.
What a wonderful experience. The location was perfect to end our trip in Costa Rica. Douglas and Marta were great hosts and everything was as described and better. We look forward to visting again. I highly recommend the villa for anyone that enjoys nature, animal and a true local experience. Dont forget to walk down the hill ( which is not bad; we looked forward to the walk every morning) and eat at Club Bananas.
Très bel endroit ! La vue est magnifique ! Nous avons été très bien reçu ! Propre et près de tout!merci☺
Our stay with Marta and family was great! They were extremely helpful, it being our first time to Costa Rica they made great recommendations for beaches and activities. The "Jungle Villa" is exactly what you see in the pictures and quiet and comfortable. We would definitely stay with Marta and family again.
Marta and Douglas are wonderful hosts. Marta arranged for our transportation to the airport -- we were three adults so this was the most economical way to go. We stopped by the river to see the Crocs.
We arrived at the "Jungle Villa" about 2 and Marta greeted us. She made many arrangements for us for zip lining, spice tour, etc. The room was very thoughtfully laid out. There is AC in the bedroom which we enjoyed at night. The sitting, dining and kitchen area are open to the jungle on 3 sides protected by the roof and double layer of screens. It was fun to sit on the sofa and watch the troupe of capuchin monkeys visit every morning. The iguanas lazed around the trees and roof at night (their little claws scratching on the roof). As an added treat the geckos hung out on the screen and lie in wait for the moths!
We had everything we could ask for in the kitchen when it came time to make coffee and fry up the beautiful red snapper we caught.
The shared area has a beautiful clean pool, bar and cold drinks (on an honor system). The entire facility is kept immaculate. We will definitely stay here again. Marta speaks beautiful English, too.
Reserve with confidence! Pura Vida!
Marta and Douglas were the best hosts! They went out of their way to make us comfortable and make sure we had everything we needed. They are fun to talk to and gave us great recommendations for the area. The space was clean and spacious. We had tons of privacy, and the property was so quiet we had no idea there was anyone else staying around us. We could hear the monkeys and iguanas playing around the trees and on the roof of the villa. The view of the marina and ocean was beautiful! Manuel Antonio was just a short $1 bus ride away, and it took less than ten minutes to walk into the heart of Quepos. Definitely recommend checking out the awesome farmers market on Fridays and Saturdays, too! We absolutely loved staying here and want to bring more friends back in the future. Thank you for everything, Marta!
The jungle villa was fantastic, we stayed there for 10 days. The kitchen was very well equiped, beautiful views from the swimming pool, and views from the apartment too! (Daily iguanas and monkeys :) ). Good wifi connection too. They are great hosts always there for any type of advise/problem. Our air conditioning broke one day and within half an hour it was all sorted!!
The apartment its in great location, right in front of the marina and a 10 minute walk from Quepos which ment we could go out at night for a few drinks and walk it back.
I'd definately recommend to stay here!

About the Host, Marta And Douglas
I have a very outgoing personality and love to dance, cook and laugh. I enjoy meeting and helping people. I love to travel throughout my country and other countries as well. My husband Douglas and I have been married for 25 years and have two daughters, Bianca 23 and Sandy 18. Both girls attend the university in San Jose. Both Douglas and I were born and raised in Quepos and we think that with all of the lovely areas in Costa Rica, that the Quepos/Manuel Antonio are is the most beautiful.
I like to dance and cook as well. Although I am not as outgoing as my wife, I do enjoy meeting other people. I have worked for the national electric company "ICE for 27 years as a maintenance supervisor. I like to travel and enjoy seeing other areas of our beautiful country. We slowly built on our property over the years and enjoy sharing it with others. Now with the pool and rancho completed I think we are finally finished.
