“Beautiful view”
Reviewed April 12, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent 5 nights at Casa Antonio recently and really enjoyed ourselves. It has one of the most spectacular views of the ocean we found. The large and comfortable patio overlooking the ocean was sooo relaxing. The home is much larger than our family of 4 adults and 1 teenager needed. We cooked a little and had a chef in one evening, so the kitchen was useful and stocked as you would expect for a rental property.

There was lots of local wildlife like monkeys running across the roof, toucans in a tree next tot he patio and iguanas right on the patio. The birds and beautiful flowers on the grounds made our sitting around time very special.

Freddy and Kenia were outstanding and very friendly. It was amazing to have our laundry done every day and to have Freddy's help and advice getting around.

Thanks Larry.

Your review and your wording is so appreciated, you have really hit the nail on the head as to what I saw the first time I came here. The monkeys on the roof sold me because I had never seen anything like it in all my travels. Every year we strive to make things better for our guest and with reviews like yours I see all our physical work pays off. Thank you and I hope to see your family again.

“Very Best Ever!”
Reviewed February 25, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our group of ten teachers had a marvelous stay at Casa Manuel Antonio from February 14 through February 20, 2016. Upon entering the home you feel the connection to the ocean and the rain forest through the open floor plan that extends to a covered outside space. The ocean view from the porch off the living area and from the huge master suite upstairs is spectacular. There are two bedrooms off the first floor living area, one bedroom off the pool and the mini-villa bungalow that sleeps two more. There was plenty of space, beds and baths for a mixed group of ten: one couple, five women and three men. The location is super. LaCantina, Raphael's, Ocean View and Casa Verde restaurants are a short walk up to the main road. The bus to Quepos and the beach stops regularly in front of LaCantina (about 60 cents each way). The kitchen is well equipped for at home dining. The spacious home is tastefully enhanced by the most interesting collection of paintings, sculptures and prints. From the covered porch you will watch monkeys, birds and lizards frolic in the gorgeous gardens below.
In addition to the home itself, the owner ensures that your stay is perfect. The owner, Larry arranged transportation from the San Jose airport, Freddie cleaned the pool, maintained the grounds and stocked our refrigerator every day. Kenya, the housekeeper, washed, dried and folded our clothes, made our beds and kept the house absolutely spotless. If desired, Freddie will book tours for you as well. Bottom line is that when the time came, we did not want to go home!
We, the Two Professors, have been organizing study away travel courses to Manuel Antonio for five years now. Without question, the home and the people caring for Casa Manuel Antonio made 2016 the very best ever. Thank you Larry, Freddie and Kenya for helping us make wonderful memories in beautiful Manuel Antonio. We will be back next year for sure.

Your review has helped so many to see what we are about at Casa Antonio. Thank you so much for the great words about us and the villa. It is quite large and hard to keep up but the three of us manage to keep it going with the jungle life always moving. You have really explained all the spectacular things about Casa Antonio and Manuel Antonio in general with your review and I sincerely appreciate your time working with me to make things go as well as they did for the entire group. Everyone did find their own comfortable space to be in while the group was here and I loved talking with all and finding out about each of them.
The same week was blocked for 2017 just after the group left so please keep me posted. I really look forward to the new group and the folks who decided to return.

“The Vacation Where We Could Do Everything - Or Nothing - and Come Back Relaxed and Eager to Return!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 for a stay in February 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My husband, two boys (14 and 8) and in-laws (70s) traveled from bitter-cold NY to Manuel Antonio. We were married there two years ago, and looking for a winter getaway. Amazingly, the house was available! The boys spent much of their time in the pool, which was kept in pristine condition.

Our laundry and dishes were washed daily (treat!) and rooms tidied, which took care of otherwise stressful household chores we didn't have to perform while on vacation. Larry was an excellent host, knowing exactly when to visit to see if we needed anything - and Freddie set us up with amazing excursions from horseback riding on the beach to ziplining.

Truly though, if we never left the house, we would have still had an amazing vacation. The view is really one-of-a-kind. And the animals are certainly at home at Casa Antonio, which is really unique. From iguanas to monkeys and sloths and amazing birds, there is no shortage of nature to enjoy.

Writing this review, I am wistful to return - and jealous of anyone who ends up at Casa Antonio!

Amazing guest and always welcome at Casa Antonio. I love it when people return that have knowledge of how things are in Costa Rica, and love it here as much as I do. This couple was married on our terrazzo two years and one of my greatest experiences here in CR. Coolest family I know.
Thanks for the warm review.

“Blissful”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Thanks to Larry, our host, left me with the feeling of a most relaxing, beautiful vacation. The property is in the heart of everything Quepos/Mauel Antonio, with the most awesome view of the coast.
. Larry was so gracious, and attentive from setting up tours, to tips about the great restaurants and attractions to the area. Overall the experience was superb and look forward to returning some day soon!

This is a place beyond words. The view is breathtaking: ocean, sky, flowers and palms. The pool is delicious. The residence is HUGE. There were six of us and we had enough space to be apart and together. Lawrence was a totally gracious and helpful host. I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you!!

We became friends on the Internet before you even got here. All the plans for your family's first visit to Costa Rica and "the jungle" were perfect and we here at Casa Antonio try to accommodate as well as we can.
Thank you for sharing an incredible dinner with us. It was a real pleasure to share our lives at the same table. Very sad to watch you all riding away.
Pura Vida, All at Casa A
