About the property

Luxury Villa, Breathtaking Ocean & Jungle Views, Pool, Jacuzzi, Monkeys Galore!

Just a couple hours after touching down at the airport in San José, you could be floating in your own private pool at Casa Española, sipping an ice-cold glass of something alongside your favorite people.

With panoramic views of the jungle, ocean and National Park, your Costa Rica adventure begins now!

For a destination wedding, family reunion or other large-group getaway, Casa Española offers 11,000 square feet of affordable luxury and panoramic ocean views.


At Casa Española, every suite is a master suite, with a private bath in each and ocean views from every single bedroom (yes, all of them!). No need to scramble to claim the best room, because they’re all the best room.

With a total of 10 king beds (complete with hypoallergenic mattresses and pillows) plus comfortable sofabeds spread across four floors, the villa comfortably sleeps 24. And up to 30 can stay if using our additional luxury air mattresses. In other words, don't worry about last minute RSVPs from your fellow guests—we've got you covered!


With our ultra-comfy beds, we don't blame you for sleeping in. But if you do wake with the sun, here are just a few of the dozens of things you can do:

• Perfect your downward dog pose during morning yoga on the penthouse pool deck

• Ask our in-house chef to prepare a traditional Costa Rican breakfast (additional fees may apply)

• Float on a raft with cocktail in the swimming pool

• Take a luxurious rainshower complete with organic Ylang Ylang Shampoo and Banana Conditioner from Raw Botanicals, a fair-trade company whose proceeds support local conservation organizations

• Pretend you’re in a music video while sitting under the waterfall in the 12-person Jacuzzi (yes, the waterfall is in the Jacuzzi)

• Spend the whole day moving between the seven jungle- and ocean-view terraces, counting how many white-faced monkeys, sloths and howler monkeys you can spot swingin’ in the trees around the property

• Host a sunset salsa-dancing class for 30 on the penthouse terrace (our 24-hour concierge will handle the details)

• Take your pups for a walk down to the beach (Fido is welcome at Casa E!).


When you want to head out and explore Manuel Antonio and our surrounding area, you’ve got a ton of options. Flip open our painstakingly compiled “Things to Do” booklet, filled with our personally tested tips for the best activities in and around Manuel Antonio, including:

• Whitewater rafting

• Zip-lining over the jungle canopy

• Crocodile tours (!)

• Four-wheeling on an ATV through the jungle to a waterfall

• Surfing in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean

• Deep-sea fishing (catch a tuna in the morning; grill it on the super-sized barbecue at night)


The villa is located on a private gated road, walking distance from the family-friendly, English-speaking town of Manuel Antonio. At Casa Española, you are only:

• A 5-minute cab ride from the hiking trails of Manuel Antonio National Park

• A 20-minute stroll or 5-minute, $6 cab ride from the beach

• A 3-5-minute walk from Manuel Antonio's restaurants, bars, shops, banks, pilates studios and other amenities.

We understand it's hard to plan for large groups so we are here to help every step of the way.

About Amy Irving

I originally came to Costa Rica on a sabbatical from a busy job in London, England. I intended to stay 3 months but after 8 years I'm still here - What happened?! Well, Costa Rica happened. With so many amazing things to do & see it really is a hard place to leave, be warned! Now I get to live in paradise, hike in the jungle, swim & surf in our beautiful warm ocean, rappel down waterfalls, raft rapids, zip-line through the jungle canopy, and so much more. Lucky me!!! With the help of great friends, I manage vacation villas & run a boutique vacation planning business, My Vacation Costa Rica. We specialize in giving our guests the personal touch & between us, we guide you through all aspects of planning your vacation & make sure you only experience the best of the best - so come us in paradise and start enjoying the pura vida life!

Amy Irving purchased this villa in 2009

Why Amy Irving chose Manuel Antonio

Casa Española is a truly stunning vacation home!

Located in the heart of Manuel Antonio you don't need to spend money on rental cars - everything is within 5 - 10 mins from the villa and you can even walk to some of our best restaurants and bars within 3 minutes.

Located on Pacific Canyon Drive, Casa Española is neighbours with a number of other superb vacation rental homes so if your party is too large for one house - or if you'd like to spread out a little - we can connect you to other villas as discounted rates. So close to Casa Española you can wave from your balconies to each other in the mornings.

With floor to ceiling glass walls throughout and all living areas and bedrooms facing the Pacific Ocean, the views are absolutely jaw-dropping from every angle. A constantly moving picture of ocean, rainforest, boats, monkeys and eagles. You really do need to see it to believe it.

Set over 4 levels it offers versatile accommodation required by large groups of friends and extended family - you'll be amazed how easily you can fit everyone in, it really is enormous!

Each floor is separate and fantastically unique adding different features to the house maintaining, however, always a great flow as a whole house.

It's located right in the center of our lovely Manuel Antonio village and is within staggering distance to all of the best restaurants, bars and stores.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is one of only a handful here in Manuel Antonio that can comfortably accommodate up to 30 people.

The unique configuration of this villa provides our guests with ample communal areas to enjoy each others company, but equally as importantly, there are plenty of private areas for those moments when you'd like to take things easy, perhaps to share a cocktail on the private ocean view balcony of your bedroom suite

ALL ROOMS in Casa Española have AC (not just the bedrooms).

In addition, we provide a boutique planning service encompassing everything from transportation to activities, grocery shopping to private chefs. We will manage everything for you before and during your vacation so all you have to do is share our expertise and relax in the knowledge you are in good hands

Guestbook comments from the manager

Words can not express all that I felt when I arrived at this wonderful oasis. Pictures don't tell the whole truth. Casa Espanola is beyond beautiful. This place is like a piece of paradise. We loved every nook and cranny of the villa and I wish I could have stayed longer. Our Chef and her daughter were delightful. The chef is one of the best cooks, and we enjoy her cooking. The staff overall were accommodating, and efficient. We all felt safe with 24 hour security always there on site. The monkeys were and added treat and the way the ocean moved was magical. Thank you for all that you provided for our family we all had a great time.

House was amazing

Nuria, house keeping and the chef we hired for the week did an amazing job. Our party of 21 had so much space and enjoyed our stay.

Great location, beautiful views, spacious and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this property don't do it justice! Our large extended family of 29 rented out all 6 rooms here and it was better than we could have hoped for! It was roomy, spacious and had beautiful views on all three main floors. We could all be together when we wanted to be but also have our own discs and privacy. Cleaning service came every day to keep the place immaculate. The concierge service was bend-over backwards accommodating and the home had everything we could have ever wanted for a weeklong stay. We would definitely come back and would recommend to all of our friends and family.

One Family, 3 generations, all adults - 23 people

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience. The Manual Antonio area and Casa Española exceeded our expectations. All of the arrangements the staff made for us came off without a hitch. The layout of the villa and the room sizes offered plenty of space for our family of 23 to be together and at the same time, offer places for down time. The recommendations, advice, and information the staff provided about food, wine, and local things to do were invaluable. The house was well maintained and well-kept during our stay.

The biggest surprise was Chef Fratini, WOW. He was more than a chef; he was a presence, the icing on the cake. We are a family that enjoys good food and eating together. Manuele provided meals that were an experience as well as being an onsite presence full of local information.

I know you would get 23 positive recommendations for the villa as well as their choice of Chef services from the family.

Thanks for everything

Debra's 50th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

By far one of the best vacations ever. Casa Espanola is a fabulous, upscale villa that is spacious, modern and clean. I traveled with a group of 20 people and everyone was in awe. I probably will never go to a hotel again after the Casa Espanola experience. The dining area was big enough for everyone, thus producing a total family vibe at mealtime. The rooms are big and the beds are huge. Chef Glenda and her daughter were the absolute best and the menu selections are just too many to name. The ride from SJO airport was 2 1/2 hrs but no one seemed to mind the long ride because it gave you an opportunity to sightsee. We also took the local bus in Manuel Antonio for about .67 cents....what a deal. I can't say enough about this fabulous place. I can't wait to go back. Thanks to Amy, Hazel and the staff at Casa Espanola.

Paradise for sure

  • 5 of 5

we are a family of 16 and as soon as we set foot on the property we knew that we were in for a glorious vacation. The location was perfect, the views stunning, the room setups amazing, maid service was wonderful and Glenda the cook provided us with the food of Costa Rica that was delicious. Hazel the manager of the house made sure our every wish was fulfilled. We were a happy family at Casa Espanola.
