Villa Pelicano Private Estate is described as the “mansion” of Manuel Antonio and a landmark of the town with its walled entrance and completed gated property. As your private gate opens, you will drive down a palmed lined driveway to your own private resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I really don't know where to begin. 3 families totaled 19 happy guests. We had to pinch ourselves to realize if this was all real. Well it was, we were in paradise. Geralyn, Ana, Maria, Michól, everyone made our experience just absolutely "wonderful". They were all kind, sweet and very accommodating. We were surrounded by natures beauty and there was no other place we would have liked to have been during the new year - 2017! I am looking forward to return to this fantastic beauty!

Our stay at Villa Pelicano and our visit to Manuel Antonio was absolutely perfect. The views were breathtaking, the chef, Anna, and her meals were better than any restaurant I went to, and the house itself was amazing. And on top of all of that, we got to see monkeys swinging through the trees and macaws flying by while sitting on the front porch. This is the second time I've stayed at Villa Pelicano and I definitely plan on going back very soon!

Our stay at Villa Pelicano and our trip to Manuel Antonio was absolutely amazing. The view is breathtaking, the chef and the food she cooked was better than any restaurant we went to, and the house itself was absolutely gorgeous. And the opportunity to see monkeys swinging through the trees and macaws flying by each day while sitting on the porch just added to all of the greatness. This is my second time staying at this house and I definitely plan on coming back sometime very soon.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you have a chance to stay at this property, do not miss it! Just be aware that... you may get "addicted" to this place (as I have). It is perfect in every way. Everything from the wonderful concierge service (Geralyn), to the impeccable food (Anna), to the absolute cleanliness of the property is amazing and the best you will find anywhere in Costa Rica. I have stayed at Villa Pelicano many times, and it is the only place I will stay when I visit Manuel Antonio. The views are spectacular. You will not find a more beautiful sunset, I guarantee it. We just returned from a group trip of 15 people, and every single person is now wanting to return every year. I am truly more impressed every time I go back. Thank you to everyone at Villa Pelicano, and I can't wait until next time!!!

We planned a 70 Birthday at Villa Pelicano and 14 family members (7-72 years old) attended. The Villa was spectacular and their was more than adequate room to accommodate us. Geralyn planned our trips to and from the airport in a vehicle that accompanied our group and our luggage. She recommended and planned our excursions which were fantastic. She arranged for cabs to take us to and from the beach and reserved lounges and umbrellas. Chef Ana was terrific and helped us choose menus that were very delicious. We experienced no problems during our trip and our group thoroughly enjoyed this experience. I recommend this trip without reservation. Reviews like this convinced me to stay at the Villa and I am very happy that I did.

Our stay @ Villa Pellicano was fantastic. A truly relaxing vacation in every sense. The property was spacious, comfortable, incredibly clean. Everything was taken care of. I can't compliment Geralyn, Anna, and the rest of the staff enough. They are genuinely kind, committed professionals. We had a blast. I should mention that I'm not the best traveler and I was especially nervous about being in another country where I don't speak the language, understand the currency, etc. Costa Rica was really easy and I always felt safe and comfortable. A big part of that was Geralyn -- she helped with everything and I really appreciate her. Thanks for a great place and a great team. My wife and kids have all reported that this was their "best vacation ever!"

This property is a Diamond!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful property for a week. It was not long enough. We have stayed in many vacation homes all over the world and this one by far is at the top of our list. Not only is the property amazing but the staff is on top of everything. Geralyn booked all of our entertainment from tours to taxies to beach chairs. There was not one thing that went wrong. She even booked our private charted plane back to San Juan airport. Our Maid service was over the top. She did our laundry daily. Not only washed but sorted and folded it too. Anna. I want to take her home with us. She is Amazing and a must. My son has a fish allergy and Anna was always on top it. She spoiled us . I tell my family daily here at home that Anna is not with us. If you are a mom and traveling with your family this is the only way to go. I me myself had a RELAXING vacation. I didn't make breakfast clean up do laundry on my vacation. The views the house the country perfecto. Don't think about just act you won't be disappointed!!! We will return.

Thank you for staying with us and we do hope to see you again, Best regards, Don
