About the property

5 private suites, each with beautiful views of the pacific ocean.

This villa blends nature and luxury to give you a true tropical life-style vacation. Enjoy spectacular views from the great room with floor to ceiling windows opening to the Park and Ocean with the pool in the foreground. The terraces and suites flow to create options for comfortable outdoor living or air-conditioned indoor living.

Enjoy the great room and pool terrace for gathering as a family or group, along with the privacy of several master-style suites for sleeping, each with views and unique tropical decor.

Choose cooking and dining indoors in the great room or alfresco on the pool terrace. Or, a chef can prepare a gourmet meal for you. You always have a table with a view.

Our location offers easy access to the park, beaches, stores, restaurants and world class fishing grounds from the Marina Pez Vela. Wildlife is abundant here at the Villa and the surrounding area.

A multi-level design affords ocean and rainforest views from all rooms and spaces. The Bird of Paradise Suite with its terrace is on the first level. One level up, the main level includes the great room, kitchen, the Surf Suite, Sunset Suite, and Monkey Room. The Hibiscus Suite, with balcony, is above the great room. There is access between the great room area and the upper Hibiscus level so all the areas flow together.

A car is not necessary for guests who enjoy walking. The walk up our street is about 300 yards to the main road. From there, the National Park and its beaches are to the right, downhill, about a mile. Or go left and select from our great surfing beach or another calm white sand snorkeling beach and kayaking bay, each about a half mile. Our home is about 360 feet above sea level. As alternatives to walking, taxis and the local bus are readily available to take you to your destination. Our concierge Alberto will help with any transportation needs.

A grocery store and many restaurant options are nearby on the walkable, main road. Select from local, North American, Asian fusion, and Caribbean cuisine, some with live music and big screen sports bars. Enjoy great steaks and seafood, or opt for pizza and hot dogs or vegetarian dishes, soups and sandwiches. Choices range from romantic and pricey to family style—or hire a local chef to prepare a meal to remember right in the villa!

Wildlife is abundant on our property and surrounding our property. While we cannot guarantee what wildlife you may see during your stay, this is a list of the kinds of species which have been observed on our property, and which you might encounter. Capuchin Monkeys, Titi Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, Sloths, Cotamundi, Jaguarundi, Raccoons, Porcupines, Mot Mot Birds, Toucans, Hummingbirds, Kiskadees, Wild Parrots, Wild Canaries, Iguanas, Jesus Christ Lizards, Frogs of various types and colors including chameleon frogs, Blue Morpho Butterlies, Geckos, and a variety of “glow in the dark” insects, including fireflies.

Perfect spot for Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was truly Magnificent! I rented the house to celebrate 50th Birthday with friends - and it was the experience of a lifetime! The house was amazing - Just like the pictures! Lots of privacy with strategically placed bed rooms and ensuite baths. Big enough areas to gather together - and we spent the majority of time enjoying the patio/pool area surrounded by stellar views and wild life (monkeys every day!). The house was close enough to walk to great restaurants and supermarket; Taxi service worked well for further excursions (we taxi’d to the beach). Also - bus was an easy and inexpensive way to get into Quepos! Excursions picked us up at house - so definitely no need to get a car! Alberto, the concierge - was a huge highlight of the trip. He made sure that we had everything we needed the entire week. I worked with him prior to arrival and he organized our transportation from SJO to the house, and booked excursions for us in advance (His choices were perfect.). Arranged for private chef to cook special dinner; He helped us with taxis, made a store run for us for supplies, gave us tips and tricks for getting around town - anything we needed — he arranged. (Cooler for the beach). And we always had fresh towels for both showers and the pool! Anyone looking for a full service experience and the feeling of being spoiled - Pick this place - you wont be disappointed.

Spent 4 days at this location with my family. Beautiful home and very clean! The icing on the cake was Alfredo. He was are go-to person for anything we needed. He set up our excursion, and made meal planning stress free. Everyone enjoyed the monkeys that visited almost daily. The only drawback was that we had our 89 year old mother with us and she had a little difficult negotiating all the stairs, but no issues with anyone else. We had Alfredo arrange a chef come in and cook for us. It was spectacular! As good or better than any place in town. We totally enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mirador Magnifico the week of March 12th 2018 was magnificent indeed. The property exceeded our expectations . Alberto was very helpful, he contacted us several times prior to our visit to assist with any questions or activities we wanted planned. He was available anytime we needed him during our stay. The housekeeping, including laundry, made you feel you were at a 5-star resort. The property has awesome views and is close to restaurants, shopping and the beach. Thanks for providing us an unforgettable Spring Break!

Could not have asked for more! Simply amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our family had the most fantastic stay at this villa. Every room has ocean view, cool air and tropical ambience. Alberto was attentive and fabulous, and the chef Randy made the most delicious and authentic Costa Rican meals. The housekeeper was super sweet and made us feel like royality. I cannot say enough about the staff, the villa and the monkey friends we made. It's also close to everything, the beaches, the tours, the national park and markets. Our family will defitnely stay here again when we return to Manual Antonio. Again many thanks to Alberto, Randy and the owners of such a magnificent property. Pura Vida!

Awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mirador Magnifico the week of March 14-21. We are a family of 10 celebrating my parents' 70th birthdays. Ages of 4 kids ranged from 5-12. There was more than enough space and my girls who are the oldest, even got their own room. We didn't even utilize the downstairs room which had a nice balcony. The house is split level so there are a lot of stairs though that didn't bother us at all.

Alberto saw to all our grocery needs, taxi's, etc. Thank you so much for everything you did! Our housekeeper was fabulous! Clean towels and sheets daily. We felt like we were in a 5 star private resort!

The pool was our highlight at the end of the day after excursions and the beach. It was warm at night after the sun went down and cool when it was blazing. It probably has one of the most awesome views of the ocean on the street. We were visited daily by Capuchins and Titi monkeys. We loved seeing them play on the ropes and in the trees. We saw a Pesota (sp?) sneak on the deck only once and heard Howler monkeys every morning. Lots of wild parrots and colorful birds flew by constantly. We truly felt we were in a rain forest!

Less than a 10 minute walk to the main street with several good restaurants and shopping. It took my family of 4 about 30 minutes to walk downhill to the nearest beach and $10 to ask a local to take us back! I do think it is the prettiest beach with not a lot of people and wonderful photo ops with huge jagged rocks. Just ask the local beach chair guy to call a cab for you. The more popular beach with restaurants and parasailing was nice as well - just a bit crowded. However, its easy to walk across the street for dinner.

Overall, our stay was wonderful! Beautiful house, great staff, magnificent view!

Dean - thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

I would recommend this house to anyone visiting Manuel Antonio!
