Beautiful Home with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and pictures are accurate except for the beach. The house is down in sort of a valley and the road leading to is gravel. If you rent a car you might want to make it a 4 wheel drive. We did not rent a car, and in order to pick up our tours, we had to walk up the hill to the restaurant. The views from the house are spectacular and the sliding doors all open so you can have true open air living with nice breezes coming off the ocean. The pool was refreshing after a day out sightseeing. The house was very clean and our wonderful housekeeper came each day to keep it that way. She even did laundry for us. The bedrooms were all spacious and air conditioned.

The beach is private, however, you need to go down a path through the cow pasture to get to it and the walk is steep. It is a rocky beach, so no where to sit. However, a few of us did make it down and were able to enjoy the warm ocean water.

We also had chef Christopher Mora cook us dinner and breakfast a few nights and it was well worth it. You pay a serving fee and then groceries, but it cost us just as much as if we would have gone out to a restaurant and it was much more relaxing. He is a wonderful chef and everything he prepared was delicious. We had lobster, grouper, red snapper as well as some traditional dishes. His coconut flan is not to be missed!

If you don't speak Spanish, it might be helpful to have an app on your phone that can translate. It made it easier to communicate with Christopher and the housekeeper. All in all, a wonderful time was had by all!

Owner's Response: Hi Helene, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Casa Playa Vista! We're elated to learn that you and your group enjoyed your stay with us. We love hearing how well the home worked for your larger group and how pleased you were with Chef Christopher. Chef services are fantastic addition to every stay and our culinary team ensures that each meal is tailored to the needs and dietary restrictions of each individual guest. As the home is perched on the mountain bluff overlooking the coves of the Pacific, the open air features of the house really allow you to soak it all in. Thank you for your feedback on the preference for 4x4 vehicles on the private gravel road. We'll be sure to let our future guests know that this would come in handy if they plan on renting a vehicle. We would be honored if your group returned to Costa Rica and would gladly extend a discounted rate for all future reservations. Thank you, from our team to your family and friends.

Manuel Antonio
Car: recommended

Manuel Antonio can be reached by a 20 minute flight from San Jose Airport (Juan Santamaria), or a beautiful 2-1/2 hour drive over mountains, through coffee plantations, down the coast through palm fields. The many small towns along the way gives one a great feel for the rural countryside, which is the true Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio is a bohemian mixture of people and places. Restaurants range from simple to five star quality. Great shopping for local crafts and art. This is not a 'surf' town like Tamarindo to the north. Lots of incredible live music. The beaches of Manuel Antonio are world class and the area is truly a tropical paradise.

Other Activities: Canopy tours, rafting, kayaking, butterfly farm

Re: Pets, we love pets, in fact we have several dogs here in the States, but we know that big slobbering wet sandy dogs and a beautiful rental house do not work together. Tell us about your pets and we can see.
