GORGEOUS NEW LUXURIOUS CONDO WITH BREATH-TAKING OCEAN VIEWS

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.

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.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family had a wonderful and relaxing vacation staying at the condo. It became our home-away-from-home during our 9 day stay. The views from the condo are even more beautiful than the photos. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us to spread out and the owners have thought of everything to make our vacation comfortable - from snorkeling equipment and beach towels to luxurious bath robes. We enjoyed both the pool situated right below our condo and the private beach which is in walking distance of the condo. We highly recommend staying at the condo and would love the opportunity to come again!

Fabulous 10 days!

  • 5 out of 5
The condo was lovely and spacious for our party of 2 adult couples. The bedrooms were private, both with comfortable beds, large ensuites, and terraces with beautiful views. Morning coffees and afternoon drinks watching the sunset were a delight! Nicole arranged our driver to and from the airport, had groceries delivered, booked tours and a perfect spa afternoon. The first day both Kent and David (the owner) checked in to make sure everything was okay. One of the AC units was not working properly and when I mentioned it Kent immediately had it fixed. We had a car for 7 of the 10 days and appreciated the freedom that offered. However most tours we did pick you up and drop you off at the condo. Cab rides we did take ranged from 4-10 dollars. It was relaxing to have a driver to take us to and from the airport. About a 3 hour drive (including a short stop) to see the crocodiles and get a refreshing drink. We enjoyed the small beach (10 minute walk) and loved the bigger Espadilla Beach (10 minute drive or $10 cab ride). Our favourite things were the White Water Rafting tour, Mangrove kayaking, the younger couple loved the surfing at Domincal Beach -45 minute drive, enjoying the abundant wild-life and hanging out at Emilio's cafe for a casual dinner or a treat for breakfast. Manuel Antonio is beautiful and the condo is perfect place from which to enjoy it all!

Exceeds All Expectations!!

  • 5 out of 5
This condo and its offerings exceeded every expectation from the minute we arrived! The pictures do not do it justice. The complex overlooks the pacific and it’s lush surrounding and is part of the Shana Hotel area. Condo guests have full access to the hotel amenities including the infinity pool, 24/7 security, parking and hotel concierge.
We traveled as a family of five (2 parents and 3 twenty + year-olds) and had plenty of room for all! Besides the deck off each bedroom, the main living area has a larger deck to enjoy morning coffee or the evening sunset. All the furnishings are high-end; stainless steel, granite, travertine tile, wicker furniture, etc. The king beds were extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. There was also plenty of bath & beach towels! The condo has the best selection of kitchen items including glassware, utensils, paper products, etc.
We rented a car and drove most nights for dinner, there’s also plenty of taxis. I personally would not walk the winding road at night. Manuel Antonio has fabulous restaurants encompassing all monetary levels. There is so much to do in the area; a week was not enough. Favorite tours – Vacation Buggy (rainforest/waterfall), Midworld (ziplining) and Manuel National Park were favorites. The condo is not beach front, but Biesanz beach is well worth the 10+ minute walk. We had too much stuff one day and found easy parking by the road gate. The beach is actually a cove which is secluded and your own piece of heaven. We enjoyed it on two different days and each time there were only 20 or so people there. It’s out of movie!
The owners and condo managers were wonderful to deal with and were available and willing to answer questions and give advice on the area, tours and restaurants. We booked all our tours though Nicole (property manager/Nicole (property manager/concierge) who was a joy to work with!! She met us upon our arrive and stopped to say goodbye. The owner, David contacted us upon our arrival and return. Not sure what more you could - we would recommend to anyone!

Beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from 3 nights stay at this gorgeous condo. The condo was perfect for our family of 4 - spacious, clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. The photos were an accurate representation of the condo and surrounding grounds and David and Nicole promptly answered all of our questions prior to our arrival and helped arrange transportation for us from Arenal to Manuel Antonio. When we arrived the concierge, Dina, was there to acquaint us with the accommodations and the area and had many suggestions for activities and nearby restaurants for us to try. I loved waking early and sitting on the balcony with my morning coffee, watching the monkeys playing in the trees and listening to all the sounds of the jungle. Three nights was not enough and I definitely left feeling like I would love to return to this beautiful lush country. Went into the national park one day, hiked through the jungle and swam at the beaches there - the kids had a blast playing in the waves, especially at the public beach. We took a short taxi ride to nearby Quepos one night and had dinner at Barba Roja and breakfast the following morning at Emilio's. Loved the vibe (and food) at Barba Roja and what a view from Emilio's! Also had dinner at Cafe Milagro on our last night and enjoyed our meals very much - the gift shop there was an added bonus, bought a few souvenirs. Would definitely recommend this location and condo to friends and relatives and would love to return one day. Much thanks to David for sharing this wonderful piece of paradise with us.
