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
The road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio is windy, heavily trafficked, and full of resorts, restaurants and attractions. This complex is well off the main road, and convenient to all. The complex is beautiful, private, and well-maintained- and yes, titi monkeys hang around on the rooftops.
The unit itself is perfect for 2 people, a comfortable, fully equipped 1-bedroom. The hosts, Hazel and Jonathan, could not have been nicer. This was a fantastic home base to explore the jungle and the beaches of Manuel Antonio.
The apt is located in a well maintained and gated complex with a nice tropical garden and a small swimming pool. The shared pool area was a great place to relax and cool down outside after a day out especially as the apt doesn't have it's own area to sit outside. We even had a visit from a troop of monkeys one afternoon.
The apt was clean and well maintained with everything you need to cook your own meal when not eating out at one of the excellent restaurants nearby. Our favourites were Cafe Milagro and emilio's cafe.
We had a hire car to get around but used a bus in the evening as there is a stop at the end of the street.
Our host Hazel gave us excellent instructions to find the apt and replied quickly to any queries that we had. Jonathan met us on our arrival and gave us a complete rundown of the activities that are available and that they will arrange for you. We went on the national park tour which was well worth it, if only for the telescopes that the tour guides have (you can get great pictures through them using a camera phone).
We had a very nice time hare and would be happy to go back again. For the price it was very good.
Jonathan nous a très bien accueillis en nous donnant de précieux conseils selon nos goûts. L'appartement était propre, pratique et fonctionnel et la piscine commune à la résidence très agréable. Très bonne expérience!
Wir waren bereits vor Ankunft telefonisch mit Hazel in Kontakt, sodass uns Jonathan dann bei der Unterkunft empfangen konnte.
Er hat uns sogleich das Apartment gezeigt, und viele Informationen und Tipps über Manuel Antonio sowie Quepos gegeben. Im Apartment gibt es auch einen Ordner mit Aktivitäten, die man buchen konnte. Wir haben uns dann direkt für einen geführte Tour durch den Manuel Antonio Nationalpark entschieden, mit einem lokalen Guide, welche wir nur weiterempfehlen können.
Das Apartment ist am Anfang von Manuel Antonio gelegen und durch die Wegbeschreibung einfach zu finden. Für die Sicherheit ist mit einem Tor und Gittern vor Fenstern und Türen gesorgt. Das Apartment ist eher klein aber reicht völlig aus für zwei Personen und wenn man sich nicht ständig dort aufhält. Es hat eine Küche in der alles Notwendige vorhanden ist. Allerdings wurde es doch sehr heiss, wir haben erst zu spät entdeckt, dass man die Klimaanlage für ein paar Dollar mehr hätte dazu buchen können. Für die kurze Zeit hätte es sich für uns nicht mehr gelohnt, aber ich würde es definitiv empfehlen. Es gibt auch einen Pool, welchen wir jedoch nicht genutzt haben. Alles in allem haben wir uns wohl gefühlt.
Great stay at this cozy apartment! Hazel was such a nice and helpful host! She was really easy to get in touch with, recommended us places to go to (restaurants, beaches...) and helped us schedule our trip back to San Jose.
The apartment was very clean and had all the essentials - you can even cook some meals! And the pool was a nice plus!
Would definitely stay at this apartment another time!
What an amazing experience!! The apartment is great, very well equipped and inside a super nice apartment complex with a great pool and just takes a few minutes to get anywhere.
Hazel and her boyfriend gave us a great introduction to the area and things to do and even booked our tour to Manuel Antonio and a rafting tour. All recommendations also in terms of restaurants were very helpful!
Extremely professional and super friendly hosts, I absolutely recommend this place and would stay here again!
Everthing was as promised. Very helpful re bus loccations, good places to go and see. Manuel Antonio NP well worth trip and thanks to hosts went early in the day to avoid heat and crowd s. Location was not right in town so will need to take bus which was very easy. Would stay here again. : ) Thank again !

About the Host, Hazel
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"!
Jonathan, my boyfriend and co-host is a native Costa Rican or a "Tico" as the locals say. He was born in the city and split time growing up between San Jose and Manuel Antonio. After finishing his studies he made a permanent move the coast leaving the city life behind. His passions are surfing and football (soccer) and sharing his native knowledge with those who come to visit!
