  • Pete's Place was absolutely perfect for us! We stayed in "La Nina" for six nights during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. Pete was an incredibly gracious and helpful host, and welcomed us as if we had been friends forever. The home is located at the top of the hill, halfway between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. The bus stop, as well as groceries and restaurants are only a moment's walk away. The home was clean, comfortable, and stocked with all the kitchen amenities, which made cooking from home a breeze. The private pool was absolutely magic, oh my goodness! Plus lots of wildlife in the yard - we saw a sloth, an armadillo, geckos, butterflies, birds, bats, iguanas, monkeys, and even a couple of agoutis. There is a washer and dryer on site, which we loved, and lots of privacy in all directions. We couldn't have been happier!

  • Walking through the gates to Pete's Place is like walking into a little private Oasis. You leave everything behind and enter your own rainforest with all the perks of fruited trees, sloths, beautiful birds, and much more. The paths going from the Niña to the other structures and down to the pool are little adventures in themselves. The Niña is perfect for two couples, a couple friends, or a small family. Peter stacked the fridge with a couple of beers, cold water, some OJ, a little leche and some softly playing music. He is an excellent host who is just as he says, here to help but not to bother. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would go there again without hesitation and also recomment it to others.

  • Pete was very welcoming and helpful with good places to eat and get food. Itza was great at booking day trips for us. Highly recommend the deep sea fishing! The place was clean and nice, though we pretty much just slept there. The pool is really nice, it backs onto some rainforest and there were monkeys jumping around all around the pool area. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Loved our stay at Pete's Place! I really don't think we could have chosen a better place for our Manuel Antonio trip. The ground were beautiful, the cottage extremely comfortable, and the pool was incredible. We even saw monkeys on several occasions hopping around the nearby trees. If we ever find ourselves back in Manuel Antonio, we will definitely want to stay here again. Thanks, Pete!

  • Pete's place is amazing, a nice apartment in the jungle with a swimming pool. Pete was also very helpful to us, he took time to help us as much as he could !

  • Pete is one of the best hosts you could ask for - the cottage is lovely, very clean, well furnished, and adorable! It has everything you need for a great price, I would recommend it to anyone! The property is safe, the landscape is gorgeous and the pool is lovely! It's about a 5 minute bus ride to the beach and a 5 minute ride to Quepos - really is in the middle like Pete says! It's within walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, ATMs and coffee shop!

    Pete was very accomadating, and was so kind and patient wth us! I got an ear infection half way through the trip and Pete was so helpful, he went so far as to have his concierge make an appointment with an English speaking doctor for me! His hospitality can't be beat, look no further if you're looking for somewhere to stay in Manuel Antonio/Quepos, this is the place to stay!

Hi, I'm just a normal guy who has lived in Costa Rica for twenty two years. Over those years I have met some wonderful people, who stayed at my big house, 3BR 2B Casa Linda. I have now added a one bedroom, one bath house on the same property, totally private including a separate entrance to the property. Guests seem to like this property for it's location ( walk to groceries, take out, coffee shop, bus stop @ taxi stand. You do not need a rental car!! ( Big Savings!!)
