Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Manuel Antonio - Villa Mirador Magnifico

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, and the pool in the foreground. The many terraces and suites flow to create options for comfortable outdoor living or air-conditioned indoor living, sustainably.

Enjoy the great room and rooftop 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 rooftop terrace with our covered outdoor kitchen, fully equipped. Or, a chef can prepare a gourmet meal for you in either space. 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 and Monkey Room. The Hibiscus Suite, with balcony, is above the great room. The uppermost level has the rooftop terrace, outdoor kitchen, and Canopy Suite. There is access between the great room area and the upper level, by both interior and exterior stairs, so all the areas flow together.

This villa is unique in the Manuel Antonio area in its sustainable features. We make use of natural resources by using the sun to heat the water, dry the clothes, and even cool the house by evaporation. When electricity is used, it comes first from our solar panels, then the local utilities. You'll still have the luxury of all the usual comforts while feeling good about having a minimal carbon footprint vacation.

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. Ask us to email our PDF local map and walking guide! 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, level 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.

As if the views weren't spectacular enough...

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful abode was home to welcoming furnishings, comfortable, well appointed bedrooms, a lovely kitchen, and a plethora of accessories both necessary and wonderfully extraneous. it was just as fab coming back to the house after a long day of exploring Manuel Antonio as it was relaxing there on slower paced days. Our house manager Alberto went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and secured wonderful day trips and excursions on our behalf. And watching the troops of capuchins was a treat I don't see forgetting anytime soon. A great environment for groups big or small.

The Perfect Getaway. Pura Vida!!

  • 5 of 5

Our active family of 4 (2 adults, 2 youth ,age 14 and 11yrs) stayed at El Mirador Magnifico for 9 days . I have to say it was our best vacation ever! The mountains, lush tropical surroundings, abundant wildlife right around the villa , several nearby beaches, ocean, awesome restaurants within walking distance and lots of adventure made for an unforgettable time. The villa itself was beautiful and had so many unique touches all around. Nice and cool while still being eco-friendly. Kids loved having their own rooms and bathrooms. The upper rooms do get loud with night time rains, just an FYI. We moved to the lower rooms if needed. The view I will never forget....cried when I took my last look! We were visited by monkeys several times a day and were also greeted by a sloth and many interesting creatures every morning and night. We did not rent a car, and would not advise it. Driving is crazy and this location is close to everything! Get ready for lots of uphill walks..not that anyone ever complained :) If motion sick, take meds! Take a flashlight to navigate better after sunset, which happens early. Large umbrellas are provided. We enjoyed coffee on the upper deck every morning, watching the monkeys and listening to the crashing waves in the distance. Breakfast and lunch was included in some tours and supper was a new experience every night. So many fantastic restaurants within minutes walk. Awesome service and good portions. Our favourites were Emelio's café, the Falafel bar, Barba Roja and Café Milagro. The Costa Rican people were so friendly both on tours and in restaurants. We did many tours....ADR 10 in 1 adventure, Ziplining with El Santurio, Mangrove Kayak tour with Iguana tours and The Manuel Antonio park tour with Iguana Tours. All of these were easily arranged the day before with our wonderful concierge, Alberto. He offered lots of assistance and good advice while still respecting our privacy. Alberto walked with us to the nearby beaches and gave us tips on getting around. Playa Espadilla offers excellent boogie boarding but you are approached a lot by vendors and pay $5 per lounge chair, but still worth it. Playa Biesanz was more peaceful and calm. We also walked down to Playa Playitas, accessed thru Arenas del Mar ..go to the entrance and they drive you to the beach on a golf cart! Never got a chance to eat lunch there on the beach..next time! I highly recommend this villa, and would also not hesitate going in rainy season either :)

Pura Vida, experience the peace

  • 5 of 5

We had read about the property in January, February. All reviews were 5 stars. We did not rent a car, driver met us and drove us 2.5 hours to the property. That was wild. Our prop manager/concierge met us at 11:00p to make sure it all went well. The kids immediately grabbed their rooms. Each room is at a different level and each bedroom had their own full bathroom and small TV. There is free internet (use the pool internet). My three children felt they had their own apartment. There is the great view of the ocean (2 mile walk or .75 cent bus ride). Everyone loved relaxing with the monkeys at the small pool out front. The chairs at the pool are always in the shade. Towels are always available for the beach. They have speakers if you want to run music through the kitchen. Send your grocery needs to ALberto ahead of time and they will be waiting for you. This is the key to the house, Alberto. Wait until you get there to schedule your activities through Alberto. He will give you his opinion on what is best to do and set it all up. He makes every effort to make sure you relax. You can use a car to get to one of the beaches if you want, just have to go a rough road. Try all the little restaurants around. Walking on the narrow roads gets a little dicey, but everyone does it. Look, this is a place to relax and enjoy. There isn't a lot to do in the area. The music is good at the restaurants. The house is great, but Alberto is the difference maker. Surfing was great with Dante's, Ziplining was amazing. I don't know whether I would pay that much for the rainmaker jungle tour (didn't see much, could have been an off day). Emilio's was great. Agua Azul had freindly staff, good view, but average food, El Milagro had good food and nice atmosphere, Barba Roja was good with simple food (2 for 1 burrito night), El Wagon was nice for pizza with average service. Don't be nervous, keep in touch early with Alberto. He will take care of everything. Same temp at 8a as it was at 2p. Get's dark at 5:30p to 6:00p. Howler monkeys woke us up every morning. We did not feed the monkey's, but they still come over. The area is hilly and steep. Cook on the grill, go for a walk while the kids sleep, Bring lot's to read, AC has remotes. ASk Alberto to go over where each light switch goes to which light/fan and where all the AC remotes are. Above all sit back and relax!

This is an outstanding villa with beautiful views from every room. We had a party of 10 5 adults and 5 children (teens), and all had their own private bedrooms with ample space and storage as well as bathroom. Our concierge, Alberto, was very informative about the house, the area, restaurants and tours. He booked all our tours and all were awesome! Monica did a great job with cleaning the house each day from our dishes to washing our clothes. We highly recommend this villa for its spectacular view, location to the beach and park, and the very helpful staff. Would have no reservation of coming here again!
