The Space

The hummingbird is an studio of 35 m² for 2 people with pool, air conditioned, situated in the Pura Vida Valley and only a few hundred of meters from the principal road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Located on the side of a hill in the middle of the peaceful jungle, you will be able to take advantage of nature and discover the wildlife and luxurious flora of Costa Rica.
You have access to 1 a Queen size bed. You will enjoy kitchen, a full bathroom, and a terrace with a view of the jungle.
The apartment features Wi-Fi and a washer/dryer for your convenience.

Just outside the entrance to the Pura Vida Valley, you have access to a bus stop that for less than $0.50 can drive you to the center of Manual Antonio, gay palces, to the town of Quepos, or to the beach. (All within 15 mns).
You can also reach the center of town or the beach on foot. Many taxis are also available for the average price of $5. Less than 3 km away, there is a full gym less where you will receive a friendly welcome.

Please note that Quepos/Manuel Antonio is a very popular tourist destination with many bars and lively restaurants along the main road, creating an energetic evening atmosphere. After enjoying our great bars and restaurants, many visitors find it preferable to have accommodations a little removed from the nightlife on the main road. The villa Mar y Sol guarantees you calm and serenity day and night during your stay.

  • I stayed at David's place for three nights with my girlfriend. We would like to thank our hosts and say what a wonderful time we had! From booking, David sent us very helpful information that included a useful map and even a suggestion of a place to see crocodiles! Upon arrival we were easily greeted, shown around the property, and all our questions were answered. During our stay our hosts were readily available to help with any issues (although we had none) and even offered fresh fruits. Overall, the property is spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, and beautifully designed. The views from the balcony and amazing infinity pool were stunning. Thanks again for our stay, we would recommend to everyone!!!!

  • We stayed here for one week and had an amazing time. David and Rene were beyond gracious and helpful and even drove us some places. We were supposed to have a rental, but driving South Easter weekend was basically not possible! We like walking so we didn't mind not having a car, but it's a hike to walk around. However you can walk down the hill and catch the bus for 50 cents, which is very reliable. A taxi was also usually around $5. The place was so nice, beautiful views from the balcony and the pool was AWESOME! We had the pool to ourselves until our last day when another couple checked in to the unit below us. David's place is a bit off the beaten path, but very close to town. We liked it because it was very peaceful and felt like our own private place. Lastly, David and Rene gave us advice on food, beaches, and activities. David also booked a catamaran tour with Sunset Sails for us. We did a zip line tour and it's nice because for that and the catamaran tour they picked us up and dropped us off at the house. Also, since we're not right in town we were last to be picked up and first to be dropped off, which was a bonus! Great stay and beautiful condo--highly recommend!

  • We had a wonderful stay at David's place. The apartment has everything we needed and they were always there helping with any questions we had or recommendations we needed for beaches or restaurants in the area.

    It a bit off the touristy crowds up on the hill off Manuel Antonio which was great.

    Soon there will also be an outdoor swimming pool. They're building it right now, but there is no noise - so no need to worry.

    Thanks a lot for that lovely stay!

  • We had a great time. The place was nice and quiet and clean. I would reccomend if you are looking to get away from the road in Manuel Antonio.

  • My wife and I shard a wonderful week at the Hummingbird and found it to be a very nice start to our CR experience. David was good with communication and helpful in sharing ideas on the many things to do near Manuel Antonio.
    Soon his place will have a finished pool which will enhance the experience even more. Thanks David for a great introduction to CR hospitality

  • The Hummingbird is a gorgeous respite from beautiful, crowded beaches of Manuel Antonio/Quepos area.

    David and friends were consummate hosts, who were very helpful and willing to go out of their way to make you feel at home. The apartment itself is pristine and romantic, and quite luxurious. It's high design all the way! The sunsets from the balcony were insane, but that's just par for the course in this area where everything is lush and beautiful.

    The property is also situated perfectly between the town of Quepos and Manuel Antonio, giving you best of both worlds--access to shopping and area excursions, as well as quick jaunts to happening restaurants and nightlife and the famed national park. David also works at one of the more popular bars, which was a very nice bonus to the visit.

    Currently there is a private pool complex under construction, so the property is only going to get better and more exotic. Definitely worth returning--which is a must.

  • David was outstanding with our communication. We asked plenty of questions and he was always prompt and kind with a response. He even helped us arrange for a guide for the National Park Tour. The house is in an outstanding location. We had a rental car and were able to make the steep trek up to their beautiful home without a problem. Upon arrival, Renee welcomed us kindly and was a huge help. H even let us use his phone to call the car rental office one day. Very helpful! Merci!!
    The place is clean, fresh, comfortable and very spacious (at least for the two of us). We loved that they had an easily accessible washer and dryer and the condo was very quiet and relaxing. The kitchen is very helpful and everything very modern.
    They warn you upon payment that there is no refund for poor internet and insects. An excellent place if internet is not very important to you to have in the place. We went to a local restaurant for internet on our phones. Insects are every where, so that is not their fault and we were perfectly fine with it.
    LOVED the air conditioner. It was hot and muggy outside, but refreshing to have the A/C.
    Would stay here again, in hopes that the internet gets a bit better.

  • My fiancé and I traveled to Manuel Antinio mid June and had such an amazing time staying in the hummingbird condo! The place is imaculate and feels like you are in a fancy tree house, nestled on the side of a mountain! With marble floors and a jungle view, this place lacked nothing! It also had a great bathroom and cozy living space. To top it off, David and René are the best host you could ask for! They had great recommendations and even invited us up to their condo for drinks and chips/dips! They have an AMAZING view of the ocean up there:) Overall, I would definitely stay there again and again!
