  • This was a great place to stay! It was peaceful and relaxing.The landscaping in the apartment complex was very lovely, and we spotted some wildlife including many lizards and treefrogs (howler monkeys traveled through as well) and on our last evening we found an amazing elephant beetle on the walkway. The pool is even larger in person and my son was in 7th heaven swimming in it several times a day. The apartment itself was basic and clean and we appreciated having access to a kitchen and full refrigerator. The apartment complex was quiet and peaceful while we were there, the other residents that we saw (aside from Hazel and her boyfriend) were a family and an older woman. Hazel was a great host, going the extra mile when we needed help. She meet us in town to show us the way to the apartment, and even laundering our clothes that we'd hung up to dry after the gardener sprayed them with lawn clippings. Hazel also provided helpful advice about what we could do in town and how to manage parking along the beaches. Thanks so much for the excellent experience!

  • We had a wonderful time staying at Hazel's apartment! It's in a great location right between Manuel Antonio and Quepos, off a road with restaurants and a bus stop, and has everything you need. It's secure and quiet and we felt completely nestled in the jungle, with all kinds of animals and beautiful plants right outside our door. Hazel was so kind to pick us up at the Quepos airport, and gave us an invaluable tour around the town. She definitely knows the area and has lots of great tips of things to do or see and places to go. My wife and I had a beautiful week and hope very much to come back-- Quepos is a great base for exploring the west coast of the country. Thanks so much Hazel for a wonderful stay!

  • Hazel's place was wonderful. Much more private then we expected for a apartment complex, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves and it was so great. There was a wonderful cool pool and we went swimming almost 5 times a day. We could see monkeys from our room, and I even got to see a tucan bird which I wanted to see the whole trip. We were greeted by a friendly host and enjoyed our 2 week honeymoon immensely. The blender was much appreciated as well because we made smoothies everyday. Thank you Hazel!

  • We can't thank Hazel enough for her place. We had an AMAZING time!!! When we showed up Hazel was unable to meet us but had arranged for a friend to meet us and give us the keys. Once we showed up in MA we called her friend and she was there in minutes. The place was wonderful! It was very clean and comfortable and 10 steps from the pool. Not once did we feel unsafe, the place is gated but the neighbourhood around is extremely quiet and everyone super friendly. Its only a few mins bus ride to the beach! It was our first trip to Costa Rica and we're already talking about trying to get back!

    Thank you so much Hazel, we appreciated it all!!!

  • We had a great time here! The appartment was very clean and lovely! That was one of the best place we stayed in Costa Rica! Hazel was very Nice and helpfull.
    We recommand this place to everybody.
    Nous avons passé un super séjour dans cet appartement. Très propre et grand pour deux personnes. Salle de bains très agréable et soignée.
    Hazel était très disponible et a été très gentille en nous permettant de laisser nos affaires dans la chambre en attendant notre départ en début d'après-midi car il n'y avait personne après nous.
    Un endroit que nous recommandons chaudement !

    PS: l'extérieur est aussi superbe, avec beaucoup de végétation et une magnifique piscine !

  • Hazel was one of the most helpful hosts I've ever dealt with on Airbnb. She responded very quickly to all my questions. When we arrived, she provided us plenty of information and had books available for us filled with things we could do in Manuel Antonio. Before my trip, I asked Hazel if she had a blow dryer inside the apartment and she didn't, but didn't mind providing me one while I was staying there. The apartment was clean and in an excellent location. It's very close to the bus stop so you can visit Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park. If I were to go back to Manuel Antonio, I would stay at Hazel's place again.

  • Beautiful apartments nested in a quiet back road in the busy manuel Antonio area, close to beaches and all activities in the area. More than a great value, would recommend to anyone traveling to Costa Rica. Why stay in a hotel when you can have it feel like home and save more for activities. Would stay here on another vacation in a heartbeat. Absolutely wonderful.

  • Great place to visit Manuel Antonio and the Pacific coast.

  • Hazel was very accommodating and punctual. The grounds and facilities are much nicer than shown in the photos (swimming pool is bigger in person). I did not spend much time inside the unit, as I was on the beach; but it was practical overall. The ideal thing for me was the location and closeness to all the attractions, and the security of the condo complex. Great for the price!

  • We loved having this private apartment in Manuel Antonio. It almost felt like being "home" instead of being in a hotel - and we really liked being so close to town.
    Hazel was very sweet!

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 "pura life"!
