Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Very clean, Peter was very welcoming and had a nice cold drink waiting Thank you.

    April 2014
  • 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!

    Thanks Pieter, was a pleasure having you guys, hope the rest of your trip went well.
    Cheers Pete

  • Thank you Peter!! My stay at your cottage was perfect.. it had everything I needed! And thank you for giving me info on places to eat and sites to see. I also really appreciate you connecting me with Itza. She gave me a fabulous massage! I highly recommend any future guests to contact Itza if they want a truly unforgettable experience. My experience at Pete's place was perfect all around!

    Response from Peter:

    Thanks Lucas, will pass your comments on to Itza I know she will be pleased.
    Hope everything went well at Envision in Uvita.
    It was a pleasure meeting you and maybe we will see you next year.
    All the best Lucas, and thanks for staying at Pete's Place " La Niña ".

  • The cottage is very nice, clean and well-located. Peter is a great host and helped us for the organisation of our tours. Great experience. Definitly recommand it!

    February 2014
  • The Cozy Manuel Antonio Cottage was exactly what we wanted for our trip! Just off the main road, it was easy to bus either to the main beach at MA or heading the other direction towards Quepos. Peter is an excellent host! He pointed out some of the best features in the area, connected us with an excellent concierge, and had even put some delicious local pastries in the fridge for our arrival! The cottage is nested in the shade, and has two screen doors, which allow for a nice cross breeze. There is Internet, but it's a bit slow and sporadic. If you’re in Costa Rica you're wasting the experience if you're online, so treat limited internet as relaxation insurance.

    Down the hill path of garden stones is a beautiful pool surrounded by tall tropical trees. We had it completely to ourselves and could float around or read books poolside, with the only sound being the breeze rustling through the foliage. 
Peter is an easy going, hands off host, who was there anytime we needed him. It was clear that he puts a lot of effort into providing a great experience for his guests. The cottage was clean; the shower was hot, and check-in and out was easier than making coffee (which Peter also had thoughtfully placed on the counter for us).

    If I make it to Costa Rica again, Pete's is where I want to stay.

    Response from Peter:

    Thank You Chris and Cara, it was a pleasure hosting you.
    Also thanks for the review and I would like to say sorry about the intermittent Internet.
    Our service provider ICE has been working on their new lines for the last month and all of Manuel Antonio has been experiencing dropped signals since they began,
    They assure us this should be resolved soon.
    Hope to see you guys again some time, you were perfect guests.
    Cheers Pete

  • We enjoyed our stay at Peter's Place. Peter gave us great directions; we had no trouble finding the place. Peter met us when we arrived to explain the area and show us the amenities on his property. The fridge had some food for us and a nice bottle of wine. The pool was very nice and very private. It was a short bus ride to the beach and there were many restaurants within walking distance.

  • Peter has a nice little casa set in a beautiful lush garden. The place is not fancy, but was clean and comfortable. We appreciated the coffee and loaf of bread he left in the fridge with all kinds of condiments. Just a word of advise to future users to keep the kitchen counter clean because the ants have a way of finding sweets left there. Absolutely loved the big pool surrounded by greens. We had the white face monkeys come by one afternoon while we were there. Peter has two nice dogs. Sasha is especially friendly and is excited to greet you every morning. The location was convenient. It is a little ways from the beach, but has easy access to the local bus which can take you there in 10 minutes. Thanks Peter for a nice stay.

    Response from Peter:

    Thank You Yuko, I will take care of those sugar ants, they are harmless but can be a nuisance .
    Glad you enjoyed the place
    All the best.
    Hope to see you again one day.

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!!)
