About this listing
Room 2 is a twin to room 1 and if someone wants both rooms there is an a-joining door that can be unlocked. It was probably the best view of any of my rooms but does require a few stairs to get there. There is one double bed and ceiling fans.
A private home lodging located in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica with a spectacular post card ocean/ jungle view.
We have 2 rooms with shared baths and 6 rooms with private baths. . A short walk to the beach and the National Park. We are not a hotel so if you enjoy staying in a home this is the right place.
This room has a private bath and ceiling fans and one of the best views in Manuel Antonio. It has a double bed, sitting area and of course shower with hot water.
Manuel Antonio and the National Park is internationally known for its breathtaking beauty and abundance of wildlife. Without even moving from our deck you can see monkeys (3 kinds), sloths, coatis, tucans and lots more in their natural environment. Our garden has many species of tropcial plants including heliconias, cinnamon, allspice,papaya, bananas, pineapples and orchids. We are a 10 min walk to the beach. Everything you need can be found within walking distance. A small supermarket, banks, gift shops and some of the best restaurants in the area are a short distance away. Looking directly at the National Park we have one of the best views in Manuel Antonio. Our very small friendly bi-lingual staff with many years of living in Costa Rica, can make any tour reservations for you. If you would like to go sailing, river rafting, parasailing, horseback riding, kayak through the mangrove, or swing through the canopy we can arrange it for you.
All our guests may use the deck and living room/kitchen area of the teak house. The view is spectacular and there is a hammock and lots of deck chairs to sit and watch the monkeys passing though the trees. A full kitchen is available for your use but breakfast is service in the main house. A large deck overlooking the ocean and tropical rainforest is a wonderful way to see wildlife or just relax with a cold drink and good book. Sorry we do not accept children under 15.
I will only receive guests after 6 pm by direct request, so ask first if you plan on arriving at night.
The property has a large common area in the teak house with a big deck, living room and kitchen. There is also a TV room with cable. Sorry no arrivals after 6 pm
Interaction with Guests
I usually am here to receive my guests and answer any questions they might have. If for some reason I can't be here, my assistant will be here. We do need to know within an hour or so the time you will arrive. Because we are not a hotel we don't have someone here all day. I also don't accept people after 6 pm unless there is special circumstances.
Casa Buena liegt in einer ruhig gelegenden Nachbarschaft, 15 Minuten Fußweg vom Strand entfernt.
Die Aussicht von Raum 2 ist wunderschön, allerdingt hatten die Mosquitonetze kleine Löcher, welche wir jedoch mit Klebeband selbst geflickt haben. Somit hatten wir keine Probleme mit Mücken.
Die Gemeinschaftsküche ist ausreichend ausgestattet und nur 5 Minuten entfernt liegt ein Supermarkt in dem es ausreichend Lebensmittel gibt.
Das morgendliche Frühstück war OK und bestand aus einem Saft, Toast,Butter und Ei.
In der Anlage, in dem sich die verschiedenen Wohneinheiten befinden, gab es stets neue Tiere zu entdecken. Von Agutis über Fledermäuse bis hin zu Tukane gab es vieles zu sehen.
Es empfiehlt sich eine Taschenlampe dabei zu haben, da die Spinnen ihre Netze auch gerne auf Kopfhöhe, quer über die Wege gespunnen haben.
Very nice location and awesome hostesses. Anita was not there but the ladies in charge were really nice to us and gave us information about the beach and surroundings.
Although Anita was not there during checkout or our stay, she ensured that her staff were available. Her staff did a fantastic job of welcoming us, showing us the building and answering any questions we had. The view from our room was great, and we found the space to be clean, tidy and welcoming. A light in our room was burned out, and staff replaced it immediately. Breakfast in the morning was a nice touch (eggs, toast, juice, coffee). The water pressure in the shower is outstanding! We found the bed to be so-so, and the mattress to be below average - but still sufficient. Our overall experience was excellent and we would definitely stay here again. Great value and service.
No llegamos a dormir en esta casa. Cuando llegamos nos comentaron que había una avería con el agua corriente, esperamos a ver si se solucionaba pero al ver que no, nos cambiamos de alojamiento. Anita nos devolvió el dinero.
Nous avons apprecié les parties communes et le jardin.
Nous avons vu des singes dans les arbres.
Les chambres sont simples et la literie sera à améliorer.
We had a great stay with Anita. The unit was a nice little haven for us for the few days we were in Manuel Antonio and breakfast was really fresh and tasty each day. It was clean and the use of the shared fully equipped kitchen really saved us some cash while we were here. From our room windows we were lucky enough to see a large group of squirrel monkeys (20 or so with babies and all) pass through overhead and into the large tree in front, playing and having a great time, which was really special as they are endangered. We also saw numerous hummingbirds, toucans howlers and white faced monkeys. The deck was a lovely place to spend time looking for wildlife also. Anita was really helpful with local information, we would definitely recommend her as a host.
C'est un lieu très joli, magnifique vue sur la baie du parc Manuel Antonio, la chambre est très propre, les aménagements et décoration sont parfaits. Excellent rapport qualité / prix. On serait restés plus longtemps

About the Host, Anita
I discover Manuel Antonio 38 years ago after graduating the University of California in Berkeley. Don Melton and myself first did a research project in the National Park and adjoining beaches and decided to make Punta Quepos our home. Don was the local historian and gave educational talks for many groups including National Geografic. We were among the founders of the first Chamber of Tourism in Manue Antonio, founders of ASCONA (Quepos first conservation organization), and have continued to be active in civic and conservations groups to date. I am currently working with a group to establish an animal shelter here in our (website hidden) We worked for many years on the problem of drownings (see page 7). I ran my gift shop LA BUENA NOTA for many years and because of my extensive knowledge of Costa Rica, I can answer most questions about our area and some advice about other tourist destinations in Costa Rica.
