Casa Tango is the largest and newest villa in Chaman, a beautiful closed-gated complex of seven colorful homes. Conveniently located on a side road in the hills between the quaint town of Quepos and the gorgeous beaches of Manuel Antonio, Casa Tango provides easy access to both. Many restaurants are within walking distance. Wildlife viewing at the villa is a thrilling experience, with monkeys, sloths, birds, and iguanas visible from the terrace. All guests have access to the delightful pool surrounded by tropical gardens. The villa is a large, spacious two bedroom with two full bathrooms, full kitchen and dining room, living room and large covered terrace. A shade garden entrance sets the mood. Privacy is accommodated both inside & out with jungle views and a floor plan that provides for your comfort. Complete with internet, TV/Cable and phone, maid service and washer & dryer are also available for a small fee. Our on-site manager is always available and can help arrange tours.

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.

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.

Enjoyable stay among local wildlife!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Tango, especially the location in general and the pool in particular. It was blisteringly hot that week, so the a/c was welcome. The fans were not so effective. The property was clean, well equipped and maintained but was not the one in the picture on the website by the pool. We managed to communicate with Pia the on-site manager,when necessary, but did not meet Eddie. So our immediate local knowledge was limited. The location of the villa was excellent for wildlife viewing - we saw all 3 species of local monkeys within a few days of our arrival, some for a considerable length of time. We loved swimming in the pool and looking into the surrounding forest. There were many species of butterflies. Turn left out of the property, past the nearby restau'rant, and turn left again for a good bird spotting area. Also saw an unusual variant of the blue morpho there. A short walk to the main road brings you to the frequent bus service to Queypos or Manuel Antonio. We recommend the sunset cruise from Queypos with Sunset Sail tours [food, drink and snorkelling included] as well as the Manuel Antonio Park. We eat at Ronnie's place with a wonderful sunset view, although the food is pricey. Mono Azul hotel, round the corner from Casa Tango, is great for smoothies and a good deal of local knowledge from the friendly American owners. Cocktails on the beach at Playa Espadilla are great fun and the hotel on the other side of the main road from Casa Tango, Hotel mimos, has a good restaurant. Overall, we would recommend the property for its pool and location but would advise a/c in the lounge area as a welcome addition. We were able to cook regularly and enjoy excellent local produce. If, like us, you are heading for Montezuma after Manuel Antonio check out anyone who combines a shuttle with the boat from Jaco - there are some good deals around and it doesnt take too long.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for enjoying our beautiful property and the wonders of Manuel Antonio! Sorry you thought our villa was next to the pool. If you look at the first photo on our HomeAway site, you'll see that it says "Looking at our Roof Top." That's our home right there. Our second photo shows "Side of Villa." You can just see the next villa to the right. That's the house that sits next to the pool. Our guests, as well as ourselves have always felt that our villa provides the most privacy and is still a very short distance from the gorgeous swimming pool. Thank you again for sharing your enjoyment with us! We hope to host you again. Very best, Ann P.S. We are always updating the furnishings and comfort of our property. Our latest update includes new orthopedic mattrasses for every bed.
