Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Manuel Antonio - Villa Perezoso

5 master suite bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12

The Kids are Back in School Special! Take 30% off your total rental for October 2016 bookings only! (Minimum 5 night stay).

Villa Perezoso is the gem of Manuel Antonio. Awarded "Best Vacation Rental in Manuel Antonio", recipient of over a hundred five-star guest reviews, and featured in Su Casa and Ocean Home, Villa Perezoso promises a Costa Rican getaway you will talk about for years to come.

Boasting a full staff—including a personal chef, bartending services, housekeeping, a Guest Services/Concierge and a behind the scenes facilities staff—Villa Perezoso combines the luxury amenities of a five-star resort with the privacy and personalization of an intimate vacation rental that’s wholly yours.

A wall of glass at the front of this five-bedroom, six-bathroom villa ensures that every room faces the lush Costa Rican jungle and the boulder-studded sea. Because the villa is situated on a tropical hillside at the edge of Manuel Antonio National Park, guests regularly spot monkeys, toucans, and the sloths from which Villa Perezoso gets its name.

You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy this dynamic setting, because all gourmet meals, cleaning, tour booking, grocery shopping, and even transportation are taken care of by Villa Perezoso’s prized staff.

When you arrive, Villa Perezoso's own Chef Jose will meet with you to plan the menu. Our chef is more than happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions. Or just let Chef Jose work his magic—his signature dishes include surf and turf, Costa Rican specialties including empanadas and tres leche cake.

Randall, your Guest Services Coordinator and Concierge, is a Costa Rica native and will help you experience the best of your surroundings. Many guests don’t leave the property, and we don’t blame them. However, if your group is eager for excursions, you can zip-line or raft down a river through the rainforest, or take it a little easier and walk down to the beach or nearby café. Whatever your choice, you won’t need a car—Randall will take care of all the transportation details for you. He along with our facilities crew will ensure that VP is pristine, functional and safe.

Every room in the 6,000-square-foot Villa Perezoso features handcrafted furnishings and accessories from Bali, such as solid hardwood furniture and vibrant fabrics—details that add to the feeling of luxury and immersion in total beauty. Most rooms also have attached terraces extending out into the jungle, with more than enough lounge chairs for your entire group.

Sumptuous, first-level lodging options include the exceptional Grand Master Suite, with its king canopy bed, yoga/meditation space, iPod docking station, flatscreen TV, air conditioning, and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide magnificent unencumbered views of the ocean and jungle. Get even closer to nature by taking a book and a coffee onto the furnished private terrace. The en suite bathroom offers a private, glass-door shower, so you can duck under the spray and look out over the rainforest and the ocean.

Two more Master Suites also have private decks, air-conditioning, flatscreen TVs, docks for your iPod, ceiling fans, and large en suite bathrooms. One of these has a king bed, the other has two doubles.

On the second level, an open living space is fitted with floor-to-ceiling glass doors to keep the lush Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio National Park in view. These doors open up to a wrap-around terrace with a pool, cushioned Balinese teak lounge chairs, and outdoor dining table—all spots where wildlife are known to frolic. The living area provides ample seating, a dining table for 12 plus a bar, a gourmet kitchen where Chef Jose crafts his epicurean delights, a large full bathroom, and an air-conditioned entertainment room with three additional sofas and 42-inch plasma TV.

We call the third level The Penthouse. This space houses two more master suites, plus a full living area with a second gourmet kitchen (a great place to fix a snack or a cup of coffee), and views of the Pacific extending from one side and the jungle from the other.

The fourth level—the Penthouse Loft and Sun Deck—is reached from a grand circular staircase and is encased in glass for 280-degree views. From the rooftop terrace, you can sink into the warm water Jacuzzi tub with your signature cocktail and watch the sunset fade into a twinkling night sky. To experience the bird’s eye views of the sun terrace is to capture the essence of Manuel Antonio. We also recommend this spot for an in-house massage—Randall will help arrange one for you.

In short, the award-winning Villa Perezoso presents captivating views, gourmet meals, your own on-site personal concierge, and up-close-and-personal experiences with wildlife that you’ll never forget.

Search Villa Perezoso on YouTube for a full tour—of course, no camera can capture its beauty, but it’s a start.

As you would imagine, the calendar fills fast. Book your indulgent Manuel Antonio getaway at Villa Perezoso today. Sleeps 10-12. 3 and 5 bedroom rental option.

About Seda Sejud

Ex-entrepreneur from the corporate world marries oral surgeon. Oral surgeon retires to spend more time in Costa Rica. Now doing what we really love to do...specializing in the vacation marketplace and enjoying life. Loves include travel, villa interior design (importing furnishings and accessories from Bali), marketing our villa property and fixing things! Our goal is to create the perfect vacation experience for our guests. We love what we do, LOVE Manuel Antonio, and hope to have the pleasure of helping you with your vacation, villa needs.

Seda Sejud purchased this villa in 2008

Why Seda Sejud chose Puntarenas

To us, Manuel Antonio is as close to paradise as it gets. Our dream was to someday live in a tropical haven, near the beach and somewhere not too far from 'home' (California). Having traveled nearly all the continents and vacationed on many of the worlds' best islands and tropical destinations, upon arriving in Manuel Antonio in November of 2003, we knew we had to live there someday. Not only was the place magical, the views heavenly, the beaches some of the best we've ever encountered but the friendliness of the people of Costa Rica, the emphasis on preserving their beautiful country, we knew when we arrived that we were hooked and that we wanted to make Costa Rica our next home. We found a gorgeous property with some of the best views we have encountered, bought it and started building. With Bali being another favorite destination of ours, we wanted to bring what we loved about Bali to Costa Rica--from the feeling of living outdoors to using natural materials and woods and stones to the top notch service they provide their guests. Our architect did a beautiful job taking our vision and in creating Villa Perezoso (named for the resident sloth), with every room having distinctive ocean and jungle views. We travelled to Bali to have all the furniture and accessories custom built for the property and had it transported to Costa Rica. It was a labor of love building it from the ground up and we love the finished product as do our guests.

What makes this villa unique

Simply stated, our staff. From our charming house manager/concierge who always has a smile on his face and has lived in the area and worked in the hotel industry for over 20 years, to our full time chef, to our favorite drink mixologist, to our facilities manager and our never in the way sweet housekeeping staff, you will be pampered beyond your imagination. You will never have to lift a finger here at Villa Perezoso as we will do all the lifting for you! Whether it's to.... go food shopping, clean up, prepare and serve the most tasty, gourmet meals, to the drink making, to advice on the best activities or local culture, to running an errand or getting that extra bottle of rum, our staff will take care of it all. We also love that nature beckons right outside, I personally love the monkey visits and am always excited on seeing a 'perezoso' in the nearby guarumo tree. If I could pick out two of my favorite things about Villa Perezoso is 1) the staff and how they spoil us and our guests and 2) the openness of each of the rooms (especially the bathrooms with floor to ceiling glass doors that open up allowing you to shower looking out to the vast jungle and pacific ocean. Its a slice of paradise found. And, the wildlife that you will experience at the Villa will make you feel as if you were in your very own National Geographic movie!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Much thanks for a week that was beyond perfect mainly because of the amazing staff. No request was impossible and everything was take care of. Thank you for tending to our numerous needs--our party of 7 from 10-74 kept you all busy but you were always so gracious. All our excursions, transport and any other need were always taken care of.

An Amazing Trip in an Amazing House with Amazing Staff in an Amazing Country!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Costa Rica and Villa Perezoso with friends and family to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday. To say that the house and staff far exceeded my expectations is an understatement. The entire trip was spectacular. The house is beautiful - even better than the pictures if that is possible. Every little detail is considered. The staff though is what made this trip truly memorable. Randall and Jose are amazingly good at their jobs - taking care of every need and even some needs that we did not know we had! Beyond that, they are just "good people" with smiles on their faces always and always striving to make every guest feel special. The food was better than any restaurant and excursions were arranged quickly and easily. We will be going back in December of 2017 to celebrate our other daughter's 30th birthday. A tradition has begun! Thank you Seda, Randall, Jose, and Ana Maria! See you soon. Pura Vida

Villa Perezoso

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to describe how much we enjoyed ourselves at Villa Perezoso! We traveled with 10 guests, ranging in age from 72 years to 7 years old. Each of us had the time of our lives! There was so much to enjoy, be it watching the monkeys from our private pool, to white water rafting or zip lining.

Randy is a fantastic, gracious host and Jose (our dear chef), is IMMENSELY talented! Each meal surpassed any meal we have ever enjoyed. Ana Maria connected with us, she was like family.

FANTASTIC WEEK

  • 5 of 5

We've been to the finest hotels and have had some great experiences, and VP equals or betters them all. The home is beautiful, Randall and Jose exceed even the highest expectations, and nobody is/was left wanting for anything. Our group ranged from 8-69 years old (11 of us) and everybody came away having 100% fun! If you're looking for a way to enjoy Manuel Antonio in the most customized fashion, make VP your "home away from home" like we did! PURA VIDA!

Owner's Response: Having booked your stay just short of 2 years ago, i know that you were very selective about where you were going to experience your 1st trip to Costa Rica and that you had very high expectations having stayed at some of the best resorts in the world. I am thrilled that our team exceeded your expectations and i thank you for calling me after your trip to tell me so. We hope to see you back!

A piece of PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult to summarize the experience at Villa Perezosa to the extent that I'd like to. From day one, planning of the trip, to 8 months later, our arrival the level of professionalism and communication was superior. Once onsite we were greeted by Jose and Randell with a ice cold smoothie which a nice surprise given our extremely late arrival. The hospitality and accommodations throughout our stay were beyond our expectations. Our group of 6 were amazed by the quality of food, continual assistance with trips etc by Randell and quality of food prepared and served by Jose. The continuous enthusiasm was refreshing and at the same time calming. The staff literally does not allow you to lift a finger....even if you try.

To the food. I was somewhat skeptical of having an onsite chef and what the experience would be like in both cost and quality. If you are open to great food allow Jose to choose meals, his choices did not disappoint from breakfast to dinner. The food was 5 star flavor and quality for a fraction of the price. Jose is truly a master of his trade!!!

To excursions: We were pleased with the companies suggested by Randell. All of which were professional , experienced and enjoyable to work with. We took part in massages, boat rentals, surfing, paddle boarding, relaxing on the beach, visit to Manual Antonio and ATV tours. For all Randell coordinated transportation and fees. It took the stress and guesswork out of the process. Randell was always around when needed however you dd not notice his presence when relaxing in the home.

Overall I can't recommend the property and team enough. For the cost you get MORE than what you pay for. We were so lucky to have been able to experience a piece of paradise, Villa Perezosa!

The Pacific Side of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Perezoso should be considered one of the great wonders of the world. It's a supremely constructed multi-storied luxury villa, tastefully designed with a Balinese influence on the edge of the magnificent Manuel Antonio National Park which is teeming with wildlife. The views of the forest and Pacific Ocean beyond are truly stupendous. The genial staff is dedicated to your comfort and pleasure, from booking excursions to fixing exquisite meals (!) or just tending to your relaxation. Everything here is top notch, and combined with the surrounding environs, the Villa Perezoso makes for the perfect getaway. My one recommendation is to bring plenty of cash (or be prepared to use the nearby ATM) as most incidentals cannot be charged to a credit card, including transportation to and from the villa.

Owner's Response: We love hearing about how our guests enjoyed their Costa Rican adventure and time at Villa Perezoso. Thank you for sharing this with us. We hope to see you back. We have newly implemented the ability to pay a large portion of your food bill by a single credit card which we hope will ease our guests needing to bring so much cash with them. Pura Vida!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise!!! Five star! One of our best vacations! Seeing sloths and white face monkeys up close and personal is so amazing. The breathtaking jungle/ocean view from every room is spectacular and I especially love the open showers. The entire home is beautifully decorated and so private. The staff is the best and so welcoming! Randall, our personal concierge, planned our wonderful excursions and made sure we were well taken care of. Jose, the chef, cooked us delicious meals and drinks...better than any restaurant. Ana and Katia made sure our stay was perfect, too. We would recommend Villa Perezoso to everyone!! Pura Vida!
