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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
This was an adventurous trip which made it so great to land at Peter's place in Manuel Antonio. The surroundings (jungle, beautiful pool, friendly dogs on the grounds) made it very worthwhile. Peter provided great advice and directions. We were easily able to get assistance from Itza who scheduled anything we needed as we ran to and fro doing this and that. If you have time my suggestion is that you spend 4 days here because the sights are alot to take in. Peter's apartment is perfect landing spot to do everything and is in a very walkable neighborhood.
It's always nice when your guests enjoyed their visit, that's what we hope and work towards.
That combined with meeting some very fine people from all over the World makes each new visit a joy.
Thank You guys, hope the rest of your trip continues to be all you wished for.
And again thank you for your kind words.
We appreciate it and you.
Peter & Itza
Amazing place in Manuel Antonio. Big appartment with everything you need. Even an ipodstation, DVD-Player and more. We especially appreciated the mixer. We mixed fresh juices every day. Location is great. The view and surrounding is superb.You feel like living in paradise. Peter is a great host. But the most Importanz thing, there is a big private pool, never had such an amazing pool setting before. There was a group of monkeys hanging around in the trees next to the pool!
Pete's Place was simply the best! Safe, serene and spectacular. The pictures are 100% accurate and the pool is to die for. My girlfriend and I rented the one bedroom bungalow and couldn't have been happier with the place. Private back porch plus wifi that lets you stream video made this a perfect hideaway when the rain came. In addition to exceptional and clean accommodations (maids come every other day) Pete was able to help us book tours and massages. This was without a doubt my favorite spot during my entire tour of Costa Rica. Pete's Place is walking distance to the best restaurants, sights and beaches. Bottom line...STAY HERE!
Pete - We can wait to come back and rent the big house! (which has jungle and ocean views)
Thank you so much for being the best host any traveler could ask for.
Thanks Matt, really enjoyed meeting you guys and am glad you enjoyed your stay.
You were perfect guests andbI would not hesitate to recommend you to any host.
I too hope you come back, and thanks for mentioning my main rental Pete's Place Manuel Antonio Casa Linda, which is a great family venue.
Tell all your friends and please come and see us again.
Staying at Pete's place was really great! Not only were we in the heart of things between Quepos and Manuel Antonio, but his property was a unique haven that made for a one-of-a-kind experience. Not only were we able to do some laundry while staying here, but we had full access to his private pool, which goes unused much of the time, as well as a concierge service that was super helpful. His concierge service even arranged for a couples massage on the beach for my wife and I! Super sweet. Pete is a very nice guy, welcoming us and chatting with us just long enough to explain how things work and what to do if we needed anything. The place was fully stocked with everything we needed, including a blender for great tropical mixed drinks! We'd recommend Pete's place to anyone looking for a nice place in a unique setting, with a very accommodating host. Pura Vida!
We arrived to this stay after dark due to a long trip and stayed approx. 5-10 minutes. We stayed long enough to eat something real quick and find another place by using the wifi and the phone. We could not stay here. The photos did not demonstrate that there is no real comfortable feel to the place. The curtains are not as the photo shows, they are now cloth and held open by hair clips. We are a bit older and choose places based on that homey, clean and well kept feel. It was with no regret we left and let Peter keep our money for 3 days stay...we had a much nicer stay down the road at a hotel which was clean, safe and had a comfort value this place did not. It may be right for some people but definitely not for us.
