Overview

About the property

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.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF:

*The finest, unobstructed views in this complex.

*An on-site gourmet restaurant, managed by the Shana Hotel.

*An on-site spa and spa services.

*Extensive library of travel books and guides in our condo for your use.

*Original artwork by local artists in every room.

AMENITIES:

*Attentive poolside service provided by the staff of the Shana Hotel

*Dedicated, out-going Costa Rican property manager, fluent in both English and Spanish.

*Outstanding concierge services provided by property manager who will handle all of your individual needs.

*Covered, secure parking space steps away from our front door.

A Happy Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed a fabulous Christmas holiday in this beautiful condo. It had all the comforts of home plus a gorgeous, panoramic view. The location was close to the beach and Manuel Antonio Park. Our concierge, Vanessa, recommended some great tours and restaurants and booked everything so all we had to do was relax and enjoy. We definitely hope to return again. Pura Vida!

Best Condo Rental Evert

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in may rental condos, cabins, villas and inns and this

rental unit has been the best by far. It is well appointed with

beautiful furniture, art work, appliances,cookware, bedding, towels

and everything that makes a house a home. You would think you were in

someones primary residence, and not a rental property. It has amazing

views of the ocean and mountains and overlooks a beautiful pool with

an infinity edge. While on the main balcony/terrace (three in all), we

were able to see monkeys in the distant trees.

We were a party of two couples traveling from Atlanta and this condo

was perfect for us. It has a master suite and a second bedroom of

almost equal size. Both rooms have king size beds, balconies and

enormous on-suites.The showers are huge. The living room, dining area

and kitchen were spacious and main balcony seemed to be our primary

lounging spot. The kitchen had high end matching cookware, small

appliances, glassware, and service ware. If cooking is not your thing,

the property had an excellent restaurant, and many others in walking

distance.

The concierge, Vanessa was amazing. She arranged to have our condo

stocked with food, snacks and beverages for our arrival. THAT is a

GREAT service; no need to rush out to the local market after your ride

in from the airport. Vanessa also arranged our transportation to and

from the airport as well as daily excursions and taxi service.

This condo unit is definitely a 5 STAR PROPERTY !

We love this place and the monkeys!

  • 5 of 5

This is our absolute favorite place to stay in Manuel Antonio. We visit Costa Rica every year with our three kids and this was our third time in a row at Shana Residences. Dr. Spivey's unit is our favorite because of its tasty decor and perfect location over the pool. It is also very well equipped with everything in the kitchen, laundry room, beach towels and toys etc. We travel a lot and mostly find our places to stay through vrbo or homeaway due to our big family. We have a few favorite places that we like to return to in different locations but have found that after a few years many of these places have experienced too much wear and tear and are not so attractive anymore. Fortunately, this is not the case withDr. Spivey's unit. They seem to be very good at updating the unit so that it always looks fresh. This time we found new sofa, fresh coat of paint on the walls, new towels etc. The staff at the Shana hotel and residences as well as with the management company are all very friendly and helpful. Thank You for letting us stay at this beautiful condo again.

Absolutely perfect play to stay in Manuel Antonio area

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, including two teen boys, had a fantastic stay in Manuel Antonio. We walked into the condo from a long drive and the view took our breath away. The view is spectacular, and the balcony was perfect for our sunrise coffee listening to the sounds of the jungle, and our evening martini. The condo is perfectly appointed, comfortable beds, and a great kitchen layout. David, the condo owner, sent us excellent materials on the condo, the Shana complex, and Manuel Antonio, and the property manager, Vanessa was an absolute sweetheart. She arranged a guide for a Manuel Antonio walk who was equally charming. Playa Biesanz is gorgeous, the jungle comes right down to the shoreline. We walked down every afternoon, it's a virtual private beach (and nice not to have to worry about crocs or rip tides with the boys). The local restaurants were terrific; La Mariposa had a stunning view, El Avion was kitchy-fun with a history lesson added on, pizza from El Gusto was delicious (spoke French with the Italian chef since my Spanish isn't as good as it should be). We love, love, love Costa Rica. Everyone we met was very kind and gracious. My only regret was not taking David's travel advice regarding bringing a small pair of binoculars. Do NOT forget these, even if you don't consider yourself a bird expert. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your piece of heaven on earth!

Enjoyed our stay. Property was as described and conceriege was extremely helpful. Definitely recommend the property, but recommend going elsewhere for food. On site restaurant was not up to par with many others in the area, drinks were good though. Thanks for the stay.
