“Paradise”
Reviewed February 15, 2009

Our second visit to Manys house and loved it. Waking up to howler monkeys, toucans and parrots. The sunset view is beautiful. A short hike down to a beautiful secluded beach. We seen whales in front of the house on our whale watching tour! The cabinas are very nice with all the amenties of home. Many is a great owner and very accomodating. We will definately return and recommend this place of paradise!

We have been going to Many's House for several years now and and always love the experience. The cabinas have spectacular ocean views and abut the rainforest so that monkeys, tucans, parrots and morpho butterflies are just a sample of what can be seen each day. The beach is a walk away and is one of the most beautiful in the region. Many is a attentive host and often invites guest to sunset drinks, or he takes the hint and allows the lovers their space. I would highly recommend this particular lodging for a complete Costa Rican experience!

I have stayed at Many's house (2 of the cabinas) numerous times, once for a month, 2 other times for a week. My husband and I own property in CR and it is very convenient and easy for us to stay at Many's as we can cook and get around for our business appointments very easily. We are soon to build in the area and find it really easy to stay at Many's as it is close to everything we need to do. The cabinas are spacious, clean, comfortable and well stocked with phone service and Direct TV. The views are spectacular (no, really spectacular with the three sisters rock formations and Playa Ballena so close by) and the landscaping is a tropical paradise. We never get tired of waking to the Howler monkeys and watching the birds flying around the jungle in front of the cabinas. The pool is very relaxing after a long day of sightseeing, hiking or going to the beach. Many is very hospitable and gracious. If you need anything, just ask. After traveling for 20 years throughout CR, we find going to Many's comparable to "coming home" when we are there. A real find in one of the most spectacular areas of Costa Rica.......you won't be disappointed with your stay at Many's House. Oh, and tell Many we said "Hola". Jan and Jim Smith

My husband and I stayed 1 week at Many's House in the largest cabin. We live in the area and had too many family members visiting us in our small house at one time so it was easier for us to stay elsewhere. It has a fully equipped kitchen, incredible bathroom, large deck and a panoramic view of the ocean from almost anywhere in the cabin. The cabin has beautiful wood ceilings, ceramic tile floors and is surrounded by a garden of tropical plants to enhance the ambiance of the jungle. The most amazing feature is definately the incredible ocean view of Tres Hermanas and Ballena Islands. It is a short walk to a secluded tropical beach or a quick amazing hike into the jungle to a large waterfall. Before we moved to Costa Rica we stayed at many different places in the area from budget to high end but never at Many's House. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend Many's House over anywhere else I have stayed in the area. The owner always asked if we needed anything and was very pleasant.

  • Liked — The sound of the waves at night and the ocean view.
