We have been fortunate to travel to quite a few exotic destinations over the years, and our recent stay at Discovery Beach House (DBH) ranks amongst the best ever. The beautiful home, which is one of only a small handful located directly on the beach in Manuel Antonio (M.A.), was beautiful. It was tastefully and uniquely decorated by the owners...

Management response:

We hardly have words to express how much we appreciate you taking the time to write such detailed comments about every aspect of your stay with us. We're so grateful you chose our Discovery Beach House and gave us the opportunity to make it such a memorable vacation. Thank you! Thank you! ~ Evelyn & David

My husband and I have traveled to Costa Rica a few times before. However, this time we brought along our 3 kids(12, 6 and 3 year old) and stayed somewhere new. First, the home is amazing. It is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Swimming in their pool took on a new experience as the monkeys were hanging out in the trees...

Management response:

Okay, we admit that we pay the iguana to dance to the music and we're happy the monkeys showed up on schedule as well. We'll all be waiting for your next visit to do it all over again! ~ Evelyn & David
