Overview

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.

Nice end of vacation

  • 5 out 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 out 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!

fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a really wonderful time staying in this condo. It was huge, beautifully decorated, well-appointed, and clean. The beds were very comfortable, and the views from the balcony were stunning. Our children, ages 6 and 9, loved the pool and lounging area. Also, this condo was in a great location because while it felt secluded, it was close to everything we wanted to do. The property manager, Jonathan, was extremely responsive, and very friendly. Overall, I would recommend staying here in a heartbeat!!

Great for Active Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We are a family with 3 young kids and stayed in this beautiful condo for four nights in October 2014. We really enjoyed our stay and saw lots of monkeys. We saw white face monkeys, howler monkeys, titi monkeys, toucans, sloths and iguanas.

Everything in the condo was in good shape and we found it to be even nicer than in the pictures. It is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need on a vacation or even on a longer stay. We really enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony surrounded by beautiful views. It was also nice to be able to just send the kids off to the pool and watch them from the balcony (they are all good swimmers). The closest beach is really beautiful and a lot closer than we expected. With three kids it took us only about 5 minutes to walk down there and less than 10 minutes to get back uphill. There is also a great beach for surfing within a little longer hike (approx. 15-20 minutes downhill) and we saw both Titi monkeys and a Howler monkey on the way down.

Besides the monkeys the high of our trip was the zipline. They picked us up right from the condo door. The tour had 11 different ziplines and the longest one was almost a mile long. The views were amazing and the lunch they offered was the best meal we had in CR.

Jonathan, our concierge, was very friendly and made us feel confident that help was just a phone call away anytime we would need anything. The hotel staff were also very nice and the guards even helped us in spotting the monkeys :).

This condo was definitely one of the major reasons why our vacation in Manuel Antonio was such a success. We definitely want to come back soon and hope to stay in this place again. hah! That would be the only reason for not recommending this property to others so they wouldn't block all the available dates from us :)

Gorgeous Condo with a killer view

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 2 adults and two kids, 10 and 14 years old stayed at Dr. Spivey's condo in Manuel Antonio for 3 nights on July 5th, 2014.
The property is very clean, elegantly laid our, well equipped and very modern. The view from the living room into the bay is amazing. The owner was very organized and thoughtful in getting everything ready for guests, from local maps, to restaurants to sight seeings.
The condo has a guard 24/24 so we felt very safe throughout our stay. Proximity to restaurants, groceries and sight seeings were a big plus since everything is within 5-10 minutes drive.
Thanks again Dr. Spivey, we can't wait to go back to Manuel Antonio and stay at you condo again.
