Our group, 3 couples in our 50’s & 60’s, stayed in Bosque en el Cielo villa in September. Lynne, the owner, was so easy to work with and always responded promptly to our emails and answered all our endless questions. We booked online and paid through VRBO, and all was handled effortlessly and efficiently. We arrived over an hour late... More

Manu Villa sits on top of the clouds! It is an adventure to get to the Pacific Coast from San José but it is worth every bump in the road. There are great local tours nearby, snorkeling, a surf lessons or zip line at the Hacienda Baru but once you arrive at the Villa you do not have to leave.... More

Alex and Grace were fantastic hosts. We just returned a week ago and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. While the homes are in Costa Rica, it truly feels like your in a Bali resort with jungles all around the look and feel of teak. I had an initial concern about being too close to other villas, but...

My husband and I spent 5 nights here on our honeymoon in July. It was the most perfect place to get away from civilization, yet still enjoy some adventure. The area was gorgeous and the accommodations were perfect. Grace is a fantastic cook and great host. They are nearby enough to help, yet give you privacy as well. I highly... More

We could not have picked a better place for our honeymoon! It's a little piece of Bali perched high in the jungle of Costa Rica - overlooking the beautiful Pacific! 5 stars all around. Alex and Grace are incredible hosts. The property itself is gorgeous and truly unique. Beautiful grounds, amazing views of the jungle and ocean, and both the... More

You know it's a great trip when your 13 and 10 year old ask if they can come back every year. From the minute we pulled onto the property, it was an outstanding experience. Grace and Alex have created a beautiful hideaway perched above a sweeping valley that converges with the Pacific. Each part of the day brought magical wildlife... More

We can't say enough about our recent stay at Manu Villas Pavilion! The private mountain villa surrounded by the lush rainforest with spectacular views of the Pacific is absolutely beautiful. The villa was immaculate with well kept grounds. The infinite pool, that appears perfectly perched on the mountain side, is the perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine... More

My experience at Manu will be highly memorable, from the location (a breezy jungle-top spot overlooking the rushing waves of the Pacific.. privacy.. friendly and attentive caretakers nearby) to the grounds and house. The patio is perfect for sunbathing, with a fresh, cool infinity pool surrounded by the exotic flora and fauna of this region. I enjoyed the frogs, birds,... More

I can't imagine a more peaceful, relaxing place than the pavilion at Manu. Oh how i miss having wine by the pool and watching Toucans in the trees above me. I'll try to post pictures of the view-amazing. We took advantage of having Grace cook meals most nights and her cooking did not disappoint. Her fish dishes were fine dining... More
