Casa Tango is a Way of Life

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Tango. The home is beautifully maintained and comfortable. The common areas are landscaped with care and provide a nearly private swimming pool available anytime. The large deck offers a perfect place to sit quietly and observe the monkeys on the adjacent perserved land. It is walking distance to restaurants and beaches, and it provides a lovely, safe and affordable environment for emerging into the culture of Manuel Antonio. Latin expresses this as convivere, or living happily together and at ease in the company of others. Casa Tango made convivere easy in Manuel Antonio.

Owner's Response: Monkeys are not only visible on the adjacent land, but also in the gardens surrounding near the villa...as are sloths, iquanas and other animals as well as birds of all kinds and colors. Keep a pair of binoculars at hand for wild life viewing.

Good location...house needs some work

  • 3 of 5

This house (actually part of a complex of units in 5 buildings, each containing 2 or 3 separate rental units) is well located just off the main road leading to MANP, and close to many restaurants and shops. The property itself is well cared for, although the pool water wasn't completely clear, and the only patio table had just 3 chairs around it. The unit itself is a good size for 4 people, but needs a lot of work. There are ceiling fans in most rooms (although the one in the kitchen wobbles a lot and is therefore very noisy) which helps because there are AC units only in the two bedrooms. The only TV is from the 80's and very small, and there is no way to play music from a phone or other device. Window blinds are broken and bent, some towels are stained and frayed, the range is very small, the plates and glasses are a mixed batch of old items accumulated over many years...so nothing terrible, just a tired property needing upgrades and improvements. The key system (4 keys needed to enter/exit each time) and the parking (very tight or nonexistent) were annoying aswell. One other thing...we had another person join us last minute. They charged us a fair bit extra per night for him, and he had to sleep on the wooden couch in the living room (not a sofa bed). The next property we rented, which was much nicer and much bigger, charged him only a fraction of that amount per night, and for that he got his own room and full bathroom. I guess you don't always get what you pay for.

Owner's Response: Hi, Actually, there are seven small homes on our property, each with a maximum of only two units. Our beautiful pool, surrounded by lush gardens, has green tiles. People can mistake the color green of the tiles for the water being unclear, but the pool is very well maintained and always clean. It blends with the environment. This client informed me a day before his arrival that he would have an additional person join him. This was not ample time to provide bedding, other than the couch. We charged $25/night for the additional person which does not seem to be excessive. The television is small, but it includes cable with many channels...Spanish,English, French, German. Our listing does cite that there is air conditioning in the bedrooms only, but with every room, including the large terrace having overhead fans. I am sorry that some of the towels displayed seem to have been not up to par, but many other towels were available, which were located under each bathroom cabinet. The guest contacted me regarding the towels and once he found the other towels...told me everything was satisfactory. We provide a complete array of dining ware, utensils, and all the essentials to enjoy cooking at home in our very spacious villa. Usually, our guests come equipped with their own technology for music. We try to our best to please everyone, but it's not always possible. WE HAVE TAKEN THESE COMMENTS SERIOUSLY. CASA TANGO HAS JUST BEEN UPDATED. There is a new stove, new curtains in both bedrooms with the blinds removed, ceiling fans working perfectly, new furniture in bedrooms, new glassware and plate ware and four chairs at the pool table. As for the extra "bed" in the living room, this is perfectly comfortable and slept my 29 year old niece comfortably. The "wood" structure is extremely sturdy and provides a good bed. Towels are all in good condition. We are always upgrading and improving!

We loved it here!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed here for 5 days in August and it was an incredible experience. Pia was very welcoming and Made us feel at home as soon as we arrived.

The grounds are gorgeous and waking up to the monkeys was such a great way to rise in the a.m

The house is very well equipped with everything you need and spacious. It was very clean.

Air con in both bedrooms was a nice touch.

We spent many hours just hanging out on the beautiful balcony with with the sounds of the rainforest around us.

I would have given this 5 stars, but although very nice, the pool could use some maintenance.

You can get around without a car but there would be some serious walking or bus riding. We had a car which was nice, but you can totally do it without.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that this guest enjoyed their stay in our Villa, but are disappointed that they felt the pool area was lacking. This is so surprising as usually, it is a highlight of our guests' vacation, with new lounge chairs, wifi connection, showers and umbrellas, it's the perfect spot to relax and enjoy nature. Many animals will be spotted including sloths, macaws, monkeys and iquanas. The color of the pool tile is green, which casts a green hue on the water. Some people mistake this for something amiss with the water. I can assure that is not the case. Our pool is regularly attended by a pool maintenance person and everything is done to keep the pool clean and inviting. Whether taking an early morning swim, hanging out with our neighbors or taking a dip after the beach...we are always grateful for our pool, surrounded by lush gardens and jungle.

Quiet and clean

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet, clean apartment. While it doesn't have a view, the lush setting was a relaxing respite from the bustle of the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area.

The quaint town of Quepos hosts a farmers' market and a new boat marina all. Everything conveniently located to this villa.
