Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Manuel Antonio - Residences of Shana Hotel

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

Welcome to paradise! Manuel Antonio is one of the most beautiful places on earth, rich in unique tropical vegetation and wildlife, with breath-taking views of the Pacific coastline, rain-forests and mountains.

Our two-bedroom condo offers any visitor to Costa Rica two important advantages: a quiet setting with commanding, unobstructed views of the ocean and coastline, and a wonderful, strategically located home base for exploring this region. Consider staying here, where the majority of our guests write a five star review about their experience and return again and again.

This website will introduce you to a place we love, and one we know you will love as well. Please email me if you have any questions or would like to book a rental.

Thank you,

David Spivey

WHY OUR CONDO RATHER THAN A HOTEL?

Our spacious condo offers the luxuries, comfort, privacy and pampering of a fine home. For those of you traveling in groups of two to six, this is an ideal place for time together, as well as time apart from other tourists and visitors.

*Follow the early morning acrobatics of the Capuchin monkeys from one of the private bedroom balconies while enjoying a cup of Costa Rican coffee.

*Walk to two fabuous beaches from our condo, Biesanz Beach and Espadilla Beach.

*Simply hang-out on our balcony and watch dozens of magnificent bird species visit the rainforest below.

*Watch the stunning sunsets with your family and friends over appetizers and drinks from the living room or wide balcony with seating for six.

*Take a plunge in the pool below at the end of the day packed with adventure.

*Relax under the vast night sky and stars, listening to the sounds of the ocean.

*Does life get any better than this?

AFFORDABILITY:

Our two-bedroom condo is much more affordable than two rooms in a comparable four-five star hotel. If you value certain things that hotels do not provide such as a fully furnished kitchen, a spacious living room, a washer and dryer (imagine going home with a suitcase of clean clothes!), snorkeling gear provided for your use, free secure, covered parking, steps away from our front door, this is the place for you.

LOCATION:

*Nestled in the tropical rainforest with fabulous views of the ocean and mountains, away from the busy, noisy main thoroughfare of town.

*Walk to Biesanz Beach in 10 minutes or Espadilla Beach in 20 minutes.

*Walk to fine dining: the five-star Makanda by the Sea, the five-star Parador Hotel, Arenas del Mar and Issimo Suites, among others, or visit the fine on-site Gusto Restaurant in affiliation with the Shana Hotel.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF:

*The finest, unobstructed views in this complex.

*An on-site gourmet restaurant, managed by the Shana Hotel.

*An on-site spa and spa services.

*Extensive library of travel books and guides in our condo for your use.

*Original artwork by local artists in every room.

AMENITIES:

*Attentive poolside service provided by the staff of the Shana Hotel

*Dedicated, out-going Costa Rican property manager, fluent in both English and Spanish.

*Outstanding concierge services provided by property manager who will handle all of your individual needs.

*Covered, secure parking space steps away from our front door.

*24/7 security for the entire complex.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

When we checked in to our unit we were amazed at the views, the size of the unit (1700 sq feet), and the quality of the unit. everything looked just like the pictures only better! Every night and every morning we sat on one of the three decks and watched the ocean. We really enjoyed going to the beaches nearby but we also loved the pool. The condo had everything you would need in the kitchen, 2 and 1/2 bathrooms, and laundry facilities! The staff at Shana were all extremely nice and friendly. We loved Manuel Antonia. We would definitely go back there in a heartbeat and we would definitely stay at this same unit again. Jonathon (the concierge) was incredibly helpful. We did not want to leave!!

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is outstanding. It has all the amenities you would need. Even umbrellas in case it rains. It's much larger than it appers in the pictures. I have absolutely no complaint about the condo and would definitey stay there again.

The pool is quite large and very nice. The views are amazing and the location is great. The one downside is the restaurant. The service at the restaurant is beyond horrible. Don't go there. You've been warned. There are many wonderful restaurants in the area that have amazing views and great service. The beauty of stayhing in this condo is that you can buy your own food and cook, or go out to eat, so I can't hold the horrible service at the restaurant against such a wonderful condo. It really is spectacular, spacious, and fully stocked with everything you would need. Bravo to David the owner for his attention to detail and constant interaction to ensure our stay was wonderful.

Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

The minute you walk in this condo you will be amazed at the view. The condo is extremely clean an well furnished. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels. The owner has even provided snorkeling equipment. The kitchen had everything and even had a dishwasher. The patio is a great overlook to the jungle below. The property managers can assist with booking any tours or transportation. We highly recommend the zip line tour through Mid World.

The only problem we encountered during our stay during the holiday week was that there seemed to be a problem with the water pressure at the condos. Most days were manageable but on our last night there was no water for several hours and again the following morning. We were told that the hotel and the condos share a water system and that the hotel had first priority. This problem occurs during peak tourism times like Christmas time. Otherwise everything was wonderful about the condo and we still give it five stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you Betsy for this great review. For future guests who may be concerned, the hotel management and our property managers are aware of this issue of low water pressure during peak season and have already taken steps to remedy this problem.

Nice end of vacation

  • 5 of 5

We went to CR to celebrate our wedding anniversary with another couple. The condo was a nice way to end our two weeks. Beautiful condo, great location away from the main road but close to everything. Everything we needed was in the condo (plates, glasses etc, w/d) Jonathan was excellent and helpful. We did not eat the the restaurant but did have a very expensive small glass of wine at the pool. The information passed on to us was very helpful as well. Thanks for the memories!

Just returned from a week in this beautiful condo in one of the world's most natural environments. The condo is perfectly furnished and comfortable beyond expectations. The staff was most attentive to the point of having fresh fruit in the condo at our arrival. The views from the balcony are worth the trip! The restaurant and pool make one not want to leave the property. Clearly one of the nicest condos I have ever visited.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The condo was clean, conveniently located, and well stocked. We had a lovely time although we did not have enough time to explore everything we would have liked. Next time we need to extend our stay to at least five nights. Management also was helpful helping us set up tours and giving suggestions. We hope to come back soon!
