“Perfect”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Owners are incredibly helpful on top of what they already offer. The villa was very nice and spacious with all the amenities you could need and then some. Owners offered their advice on the area and the best way to do things locally. Wonderful experience.

“Location and Amenities!”
Reviewed February 9, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed in Villa Vista Verde for the month of January and loved the location and the amenities that were offered. Barry and Annie (home owners) go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable and keep you informed of everything that is offered in the area. The one bedroom, bath and family room was more than comfortable for the two of us. The Kitchen was sufficient for simple cooking and the laundry room was excellent for staying on top of laundry. The pool was an added plus to the location. There are a couple of large iguana's that hang by the pool. The house is located between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Quepos has no beach and Manuel Antonio is about three miles by bus or car. The road is way to hilly, curvy and dangerous to walk. Though some people do at their own risk. If you stay long enough you will see the Capuchin Monkeys as they cycle through the area. If you're looking for something peaceful and out of the way quiet, then check this rental out. We didn't rent a car and managed quite well with buses for 310 colons (.58 cents) or taxis for 2 MIL which is about $3.73 dollars. It was about a 10 minute walk down a gravel road to the main road for the buss. The property is well secured and monitored. We stayed a month and had a great experience. We met lots of super nice people from the US & Canada and even made friends with the local Ticos. Thank you Barry & Anna for your generosity and sharing your knowledge of the Costa Rican Life.

“Great space, friendly host, fantastic value”
Reviewed January 26, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This was a perfect way for our family of four to visit Manuel Antonio. The apartment is very comfortable -- large living area, with a futon bed off to one side, nice kitchen (and a grill on the patio, which we used to make burgers one night), separate bedroom with queen-size bed. There is a TV with cable and wi-fi access, and your own private pool right outside your door. The setting is beautiful, and we enjoyed seeing wildlife right on the property -- iguanas, monkeys, and parrots. It is a short walk down the road to a bus stop, where we caught the bus to Manuel Antonio National Park and to the public beach. The owner, Barry, is extremely helpful and gracious -- really seems like he would do just about anything to make sure people have a good time. The only slight downside is not being right on the beach and having the short walk and bus trip to get where we were going, but the comfort of the place and the incredible value more than make up for that.

The owner Barry is very friendly and will help you with all the information you need prior to arriving in Costa Rica. Listen to him, every one of his advice helped us every bit during our stay in Cost Rica.
He advised us to leave early to go to the airport. It was the most useful advice ever. As we got lost in our commute from MA to San Jose. But because, we started early, we reached there on time.
He is very attentive and will look after the visitors like his guests.

“Great house and location”

My wife and 3 kids stayed here right before Thanksgiving for 5 days. We truly enjoyed our stay at this Villa. Waking up every morning with a beautiful view outside and being surrounded by nature was breath taking. There was a few iguanas that we saw in the mornings hanging out by the pool. The pictures of the house are accurate. It saved us money having a full kitchen and very convenient having a washer and dryer. The pool was a big plus!! We used it almost every day we were there. Barry (the owner) was very pleasant. He made sure that we made it to the house even though we arrived at 4:30am. He was helpful in guiding us on fun family activities. He also gave us great advice that saved us money when we went to Manuel Antonio National Park. Manuel Antonio is less then a 10 minute drive and so is Quepos town.

Stayed for 10 days , pictures are accurate , everything works great and having a pool is a big plus. After a long day out it feels great to come back to a house with all the amenities. Beds were very nice . House had lots of monkeys around and 3 iguanas lived near the pool . There is also a hidden hiking trail at the end of driveway that ends up at the top of a waterfall , awesome , must do. House is about a 4 to 5 minute walk to main road , look around while walking you will see monkeys, birds , etc... and bus stop very close. So it's quite , no road noise. Would stay again.

Villa Vista Verde has a great vibe: warm, clean, open, spacious. It is in the middle of the rainforest, yet two-three blocks from the main road. It was great to be able to dip in the swimming pool at the end of each day. It is well-equipped: wi-fi worked well, has a clothes washer and drier which felt essential after days on the trail or beach, has a well-equipped large kitchen. Had lots of privacy and I felt secure having our rental car there. Owners Barry and Annie take pride serving as concierge when we had questions.
