Manuel Antonio National Park, Province of Puntarenas
Stunning panoramic ocean views promise not to disappoint if you are willing to make the 100 stair climb to this secluded cliff house in the rainforest of Costa Rica where the mountain meets the shore. Manuel Antonio boasts several beaches, some calm, some good for surfing, all available within a 10-20 minute walk. Abundant wildlife surrounding the house may just tempt you to stay on the terrace enjoying the stunning views, or read a book while relaxing in the hammock.

The view is unbelievable, the house is absolutely perfect, everything is clean. I didnt know so much peace existed in one place. Is walking distance from the supermarket and the beach. i have no complains, everything in this place is magical. There stray animals that live there but are very friendly. Lots of steps to get to the house but i find that as a plus, you get to exercise a little, is not that...

The views from the large windows and two decks of Casa de Neruda are magnificent, definitely worth the 100 steps up it takes to reach the house. And the caretaker is very friendly and helpful. However this property was neither as clean or as well maintained as other similar properties we have stayed in. If we visit Manuel Antonio again, I would not choose this property for our stay.

Management response:

I am so sorry that that was the case and I know why the house wasn't as clean as usual. The caretaker always checks the calendar and has the house deeply cleaned before guests arrive, but somehow, before your arrival (maybe because it was booked so close to your stay), he didn't check the calendar in time and therefore, I...

This was our second stay at Casa Neruda. Our stay last year was amazing, and again this year we had a great time! There are pros and cons of staying here; the climb up the stairs to the house feels long in the heat, but then the view from the house is one of the best in Manuel Antonio, and absolutely stunning! There's no AC, but fans and the breeze keep the house comfortable, even...

Management response:

I'm so happy you had a great stay again Phillip. Thanks for the great review. Cara

Postcard views of Manual Antonio National Park specifically Punta Caterdal!!!! Up high enough to view entire length of the beach (Espadilla) outside MANP. Wildlife abounds with toucans, parrots, monkeys (a troop of 40-50 on morning) and eye level with vultures. Howler monkeys close by every AM around 4:00 which is a unique wake up call the first day. The house is nothing fancy but again the views from the house make up for any shortcomings....

Fantastic views and everything you want from a getaway! The house had fantastic views from every direction, including regular visits from white faced monkeys, and relaxing days/nights on the deck either enjoying the hammock or hanging around the table. The sound of the ocean could be distinctly heard at night, and a short (less than 5 min) walk down the road in either direction gave you the option of dining / relaxing in a hotel...
