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 10 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

This property is one of a handful of rental properties located in the exclusive Colina Monitos development (little monkey hill).

Colina Monitos backs on to our renowned National Park and so is treated to a daily show of some of our favourites animals from toucans and lizards to monkeys and sloths!

What makes this villa unique

This property is fabulous for large families and groups of friend. With it's flexible sleeping arrangements we can easily cater for any combination of guests - and is great value for larger groups!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We absolutely had the best vacation! This house exceeded our expectations, it's even better in person! It is a little off the beaten path but still an excellent location and not far from the beach. You will definitely get to see some wild life while staying here. It's perfect for friends because each bedroom has it's own bathroom. The outdoor kitchen area overlooking the pool was really nice and we enjoyed cooking dinner at home some evenings. The conceriege was very helpful, she scheduled a couple excursions for us and made sure the house had everything we needed at all times. I definitely recommend staying here!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time in Costa Rica and this rental was just about perfect for our family of 10. Mariana, our host/concierge, was so accommodating. If we had any questions or concerns from booking trips to helping us around the rental she was there to help. She was the cherry on top that made our stay so great! The house was very spacious and had a beautiful view of the rainforest. We saw plenty of wildlife such as monkeys in the early morning and various birds throughout the day. The grocery store and some restaurants are about a 10-15 min walk away from the house. The pool was a great way to cool down. Although the kitchen and the living room was set up outside, it was a great set up from keeping the inside clean. Overall, the stay was great.

Nice spacious home, beautiful scenery, loved the pool, need mosquito nets outside

  • 4 of 5

We loved our visit to Costa Rica. Stayed at the house for our entire 9 day trip. The bedrooms were very spacious and worked well for the 9 of us on the trip (we actually had one extra bedroom free downstairs). The kitchen is outside and downstairs and needs to be locked up anytime you leave and at night which was kind of a pain but not a deal breaker. There is no common sitting area in the house except for outside on the deck next to the kitchen. This would have been fine but we got eaten alive by the mosquitos and whatever other bugs there were in the evenings. I highly suggest the owners put up some mosquito nets on the perimeter of the deck so that people can enjoy the sitting area in the evening.

Nuria was very helpful, and the maid service was great. The bus is about a 15 or so minute walk from the house. We ended up cabbing it most of the time because it was so hot and we had small kids with us. Speaking of the heat, the house was always so much cooler than the rest of the neighborhood and there was usually a nice breeze. And cooling off in the pool was the best! The pool water was hazy when we got there but Nuria had the water cleaned the next day and it was much better after that!!

The zip lining, surf instructors and guided tour through Manuel Antonio Natl Park were all great. We saw a tribe of monkeys in the trees one morning, toucans and other birds, and definitely heard howler monkeys screaming in the early early morning hours on several mornings (so be prepared)!

All in all, despite the bugs, we loved our stay and were very happy with the house and would definitely stay here again in the future.

Awesome Place and Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our first trip to CR. This place was awesome! Very clean and easy lay out. We felt very secure and had privacy from the other people that were on this trip with us. The rooms were spacious. The kitchen area is compact and had everything you need to cook full meals or quick snacks. Plenty of setting space under the balcony with ceiling fans and a nice size pool. We even got to see some wild life while setting on the patio area. We will be back and highly recommend this place to everyone.

The hostess / property manager made reservations for our excursions and we were extremely happy with them. She knows the best ones and they took real good care of us.

Thank you for allowing us to stay and this beautiful property.

Belle maison, chambres confortables

  • 4 of 5

Belle maison avec superbe vue sur l'océan. Trois chambres à l'étage, une avec un lit deux places, une avec trois lits deux places, et une avec deux lits deux places. Au rez de chaussé, cuisine ouverte sur l'extérieur. Deux petites chambres communicantes, avec un lit une place dans chaque. Nous avions réussi à rapprocher les deux lits dans la même chambre pour le couple qui dormait la. La piscine n'est pas très grande mais très appréciable pour se rafraîchir, et les enfants ce sont beaucoup amusé dedans. La cuisine n'est par contre pas très bien équipé (pas assez de couvert pour tout le monde par exemple), c'est dommage.

Le ménage journalier est compris dans le prix de la location, un peu comme à l'hôtel c'est assez appréciable. Johan était disponible si nous avions besoin d'aide, pour un problème, une réservation à faire ou quoi que ce soit. Nous avons eu une climatisation qui était en panne, on l'a prévenu, et cela était réparé à notre retour du restaurant.

La maison fait un petit peu forteresse avec alarme, codes aux portes...

Il y a une jolie terrasse au premier étage, dommage qu'elle ne soit pas équipé pour pouvoir en profiter.

La maison est idéalement situé pour visiter le parc manuel antonio, à quelques minutes seulement en voiture.
