Manuel Antonio is one of the best family or romantic getaways anywhere. If you are looking for an affordable adventure in a country so safe they don't even have an army(!), then catch the next flight to San Jose International Airport (SJO) and you'll be in your villa in time to watch the dancing monkeys while enjoying open air dining.

Chef services are available throughout your stay to prepare delicious gourmet food whenever you desire for a daily fee plus the cost of groceries.

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 Puntarenas

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.

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.

Short but sweet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip, found the locals to be welcoming and good fun. We were only in town for 3-4 days. The staff at the villa were excellent, the maids kept everything in order and the chef and her family were a real delight, our favorites! We would return in a heartbeat. the value for money in terms of the villa is hard to beat. Only thing I would suggest is to have the ability to make the hot tub and Jacuzzi hot and wire a music system throughout the villa. Much thanks to all who contributed to our fantastic w/end!!

Truly Amazing Property - Vacation of a Lifetime!!!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe how wonderful it was to wake up to the magnificent views at Casa Española. The concierge and staff at my vacation Costa Rica were very attentive to all our needs. We were there for my girlfriend's bachelorette party and we were a group of 15! From the beginning, Geralyn and Amy did a great job planning out our trip. I was very anxious about how the trip was going to turn out because i had never been to Costa Rica, but they were always so prompt with responding to my emails and executing all that was promised. Geralyn set up all of our excursions ahead of time. She even scheduled massages at the property! You won't want to leave this place! The pictures do not do it justice! It is even more beautiful in person. We posted photos on instagram with #casaespanola so that you can see some photos from our experience. There were 4 floors and each had an ocean view! It was refreshing being able to wake up to that every morning! Every day, the cleaning staff came and cleaned up the property thoroughly, so the house was so nice every time we got back from our daily outing. Oh and our private chef, Chef Harold, was amazing!!!! The food is delicious and they will cook anything you request as long as they can get the ingredients. The beaches are close by and easy to get to. We had breakfast at Cafe Milagro the food is really good & the coffee drinks are deelish! You must see Manuel Antonio park. It is about a 20 minute stroll through the park where you see cute monkeys and other exotic animals. Also Manuel Antonio beach is totally wonderful. We had a blast! Our trip was at the beginning of rainy season & I was really anxious about the weather because of the weather reports. I will say this: please disregard what you see on your weather app. It said that it was 100% precipitation but the weather was amazing pretty much all day. I forgot to mention that they even provide you with 2 cell phones in case you need to get in touch with your concierge! How amazing is that? You can use the phone to make any local calls. So after the first couple days, i was able to call my own taxi lol I’m sure some of the other girls will post a review so you can definitely see how happy we were with our experience! Stay here! You won't be disappointed! To Amy, Geralyn and the rest of the staff at My Vacation Costa Rica, Thank you again for your hard work and the amazing experience!
