From the moment we arrived at Casa Tranquila and were greeted by Donald and Nathan we felt special! The house was beautiful, the location fantastic and the two of them made sure every aspect of our stay was looked after. They had cold drinks waiting for us and did an excellent job familiarizing us with the house (which was gorgeous)...

Management response:

Thanks for the great comments, Patrick! You and Theresa and "The Girls" were excellent guests. I am so happy you enjoyed your week at Casa Tranquila. We will be looking forward to seeing you again next year! Donald, Nathan & Jessica.

About the neighborhood
Casa Tranquila is a part of the Pacific Canyon Neighborhood Association. Donald, her owner, is even the president of the organization. Our street is gated and guarded, so your confidence is assured.
Casa Tranquila (indicated above by the star) is perfectly located halfway between the sleepy Costa Rica village of Quepos and the Manuel Antonio National Park. This seven mile drive locates our villa at the peak of the mountain . . . providing the most stellar of views in all of Costa Rica. Most important, Casa Tranquila is on the 'Ocean Side' of the main road . . . so you will feel like you can touch the sea from our balcony.
Getting around
The local shuttle system in Manuel Antonio is easy, frequent, and cheap. If you prefer private taxis, they are abundant, and Nathan (your concierge) can make those arrangements in a minute or two. If you decide you want a rental car, that's fine too. Please allow Nathan to make the reservation for you as the process in Costa Rica can be a little tricky.

Casa Tranquila has an exclusive agreement where the tours collect you right in your driveway . . .at no additional cost.
Car not needed
