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.

Marta and Douglas were both very friendly and Marta told us about lots of things to do in the area. They have very comfortable apartments with nice kitchens. They have a lovely pool and a little bar where you buy beer or soda. You can walk to town. One thing I loved was all of the wildlife around the apartments. Almost every day a troop of white faced monkeys travel by. I saw some large iguanas in the trees and a toucan. We stayed for two days but you could comfortably stay for a week.
Our "Jungle Villa" was everything we hoped to find in Quepos, Costa Rica! The cleanliness was superb, the layout of the villa met all of our needs, including a comfortable bed, large bath and convenient kitchen. The view from our porch made our morning coffee taste that much better! Marta and Douglas are charming and helpful, exceptional hosts! Saul gave meticulous attention to housekeeping and caring for the pool and rancho every day. He is charming and I loved practicing my Spanish with him! We enjoyed meeting outher guests. Our 2x daily walk down to Quepos was wonderful, but we always took a taxi back home. EVERYONE on the property and in Quepos/Manuel Antonio were wonderful to us!! We hated to leave earlier than planned! Back soon! Muchas gracias Amigos y Hasta Luego!!
My husband and I stayed here in the Jungle Villa for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! Marta and Douglas have a few other places on their property to choose from but I purposely picked the Jungle Villa because of the tub. None of the other places we have stayed so far in CR had tubs and the change for me was quite enjoyable. Upon arrival Marta was very accommodating and made us feel at home. The place was very clean and comfy and had everything we needed. The view from both the property and our porch was absolutely beautiful. It was a great place have a glass of wine and watch the sunset every night. As other reviewers had mentioned, we did get a visit from the monkeys a couple of times and that was definitely one of the highlights for us. The pool area was clean and quite refreshing, especially after walking up that ginormous hill to get to the place (taxis are readily available as well). The bus stop is less than a 10 min walk from her place and was easy to use to get to Manual Antonio. If we are ever back in this area we would definitely stay here again! Thanks Marta and Douglas!
she made us feel very welcome and the neighborhood is fine although very high up on a steep hill-------quite difficult to reach but worth it once you're up here.
This was our first experience outside of the US.
Costa Rica is different. Not what we are used to. Our travelling companions made all our arrangements. I am 70 and girlfriend is a little younger! Thank you Judi!
Our host and hostess we amazing. Our casa was just what we needed. Our hostess took great care of us ..she made all our arrangements, taxis,directions,etc. The highlights....just hanging around the pools enjoying the view and watching the boats coming in. There is a honor system bar..not something we see in the States.
We felt very safe and comfortable here.
The walk up was not for me so Marta always had a taxi ready within 5 minutes.
The morning monkeys were the best!
It was clean, comfortable and just fabulous! The value is unbeleivable for the money.
For my first time out of the country this is the only place we would ever go.
Marta was great and even booked our zip lining tour!
Chalk that one off our bucket list!
Thank you so much.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Jungle Villa. The apartment was very comfortable and had a fantastic view. The kitchen came with everything that we needed. The patio was really nice to hang out at while eating breakfast or watching the sunset. The pool was also very lovely and was kept clean. Marta was very easy to communicate with and gave clear directions on how to get to the apartment. We had a car so it was easy for us to get to town which is really close. Manuel Antonio is maybe about 20 min away. We've stayed at other airbnb places in Costa Rica but the jungle villa has been our favorite!
Marta is a terrific host - she is lovely and welcoming. Her villas are great, the pool is extremely clean and refreshing, and the views of the ocean cannot be beaten. We had a great time in Quepos, thanks to Marta and Douglas. Thank you!

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.
