view, you are in walking distance to many amenities and all of our favorite places.

We are artists who discovered Costa Rica 20 years ago. It was love at first sight and we've been returning ever since. Six years ago, we found this community and built our Villa. Our is the newest and largest Villa and we made sure that it afforded privacy and beauty. We spend five to six weeks here every year...and hope to make that five-six months in the future.
When we are not at the Villa, our manager takes cares of all your needs. He (and his Mom) lives in the community and is familiar with everything and will take care of any problem that arises. He speaks perfect English. He will meet you at the front gate and be there when you depart.
You will find the Villa perfectly clean and ready for your arrival. You may request additional services to be arranged through our Manager for a small fee.
Being in Manuel Antonio is being in a place where time is endless and people greet you with "PURA VIDA"...the pure life...or "TRANQUILLA"....take it easy. Our Villa in its glorious garden setting with swimming pool will put you right in the mood from the moment you arrive!

About the Host, Ann
My husband and I discovered Manuel Antonio over 20 years ago and have been in love ever since. There's no better place to relax and enjoy nature. We have enjoyed travelling around the world, but always come home to Manuel Antonio! We are artists/designers, dancers of Argentine Tango, with adventurous spirits.
We enjoy hanging with our friends and dining together. Willy is French by birth so cooking is in his DNA (I had to work at it!). There's an open market on the boardwalk in Quepos on the weekends and you will find a wide array of fresh fish, fruits and vegetables. It's just lovely to have your pick. Quepos also has a great selection of restaurants from typical Costa Rica, Italian, Mexican, Japanese and Middle Eastern. Most are open breakfast through late dinner.
Movies is another passion. Although our area only has one movie theatre at Si Como No Hotel, television offers movies in Spanish, English, French and German...most with sub titles. It's nice to relax with a good movie after a day at the beach, sunset drinks and a good meal.
Our life motto, "Try to experience the present moment!"
