Interaction with Guests
I live in the same complex so am super accessible for all questions, needs and concerns of my guests. I do however understand that many people like their privacy and completely respect that too!
Accessibility to town, local sights, the beach and national park. Convenient location yet quiet and nestled away in the jungle!
We are just steps away from the bus stop that serves downtown for cheap eats and grocery stores as well as the bus stop for higher end restaurant, the beach and the national park. Taxis are easy to flag down too. There is a small free of charge parking area too for those that travel with a rental vehicle.
No smoking inside the apartment
We loved our stay at Hazel & Jonathans place! They were very helpfull with everything.
The house was great the pool was even better and the beach and the tours are very nice.
We found Hazel to be friendly and very helpful, (the go to girl). The grounds were kept clean, picture perfect, and gato is real friendly. After a day in the jungle the pool was the perfect temperature, which we had to ourselves most of the time except when the monos came to get a drink. We found the best way to travel was the city bus system which was just a few steps away, and only 60-70 cents.
The place was better than expected. The space is exactly as pictured, the whole place was really welcoming. The pool was delightful and you could watch wildlife in the jungle from the pool!
Hazel was very helpful during our stay, making calls for us and giving suggestions of great places to go. She was very nice and personable.
The location is great, right between Manuel Antonio park and Quepos. We would recommend anyone to stay here.
My wife and I stayed here for a month. The condo is centrally located between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It is a short, one-block walk to the bus stop. The condo is comfortable and the swimming pool is refreshing. There are only seven condos in the complex, so it is quiet and secure. Hazel and Jonathan are fabulous hosts! Having an on-site host is a big plus as they can address any concerns immediately. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo without hesitation.
Hazel and her boyfriend Jonathan were excellent hosts. Prior to our arrival they reached out with detailed driving instructions (including their favorite places to stop on the way from the airport). Additionally they sent along a list of outdoor activities. We ended up booking two during our stay and both were fantastic. On the first day we went waterfall rappelling and the second on a sunset catamaran tour that included snorkeling.
The pool at the house was a great place to relax in the shade after long days in the sun. As is common in Costa Rica, there were a few minor issues with water and a fan, but Jonathan was proactive and quick to the rescue with solutions that resolved the area-wide issues. (E.g. When the water went out temporarily in the area he brought us to another house close by with a reserve tank to shower).
I highly recommend this apartment for anyone traveling through Costa Rica. It was a great deal.

Super location entre Quepos et Manuel Antonio.
Tres bel endroit , tranquil avec une piscine magnifique .
Hazel repond a repondu a toutes nos questions et a ete tres acceuillante .
Hazel was an outstanding host. Directions to the villa were perfect. Hazel was on hand to let us in and show us the facilities and advise on some of the local customs, such as parking. We loved the pool and the monkies and King Fisher birds that would visit everyday. We could easily drive to Quepos and Manuel Antonio. The villa was exactly as described, bedroom opens to the livin/kitchen area, and separate bathroom. We highly recommend to hire a guide at Manuel Antonio park and explore the animals in the jungle. Hazel responded quickly to any email enquiries and I highly recommend her.
I landed in Manuel Antonio from the UK in 2007 on an adventure to study spanish and scuba dive. I fell in love with the country, the culture, the language and wanted to explore more. I made my travels around Latin America and somehow always ended up back in Costa Rica to visit friends. 2.5 years after my first visit I made the decision to stay and have loved it ever since. The air is fresh, the sun is always shining and people live day-to-day based on "pura vida" - the national phrase which means "pure life"!
