About the property

6 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, eco infinity pool, solar assisted, wildlife

Villa Ceiba is one of Manuel Antonio's newer additions, completed November 2015. This modern villa has stunning ocean views while surrounded by the peaceful jungle, with nearly 2 acres of privacy. Located in central Manuel Antonio, walking distance to the beach/nightlife! The property has direct access to the beach via a 20 minute Jungle walk (during dry season), where you will encounter the flora and fauna that Manuel Antonio has to offer! And year-round, you are able to walk to the best restaurants, grocery stores, bars, bus stops, banks, shops, cafes and local attractions.

Villa Ceiba has 6 beautiful en-suite bedrooms ALL with views of the Pacific ocean. The villa is modern and clean, featuring a purified (no chemicals) infinity pool overlooking the surrounding jungle and direct ocean views. The sitting area comes complete with a wet bar which upon your request can be pre-stocked to your liking. The house is carbon neutral and utilizes solar technology to offset the use of traditional energy.

The open concept floor plan truly gives you the feeling of being in the jungle. Both the kitchen and sitting room open up entirely to the pool and patio area. The master bedroom features a Japanese soaking tub with views of the surrounding jungle from its own private oversized balcony. All bedrooms and sitting area have eco friendly inverter technology air conditioners along with ceiling fans. The bedroom located on the ground floor is accessible for the disabled.

Staying at Villa Ceiba puts you at peace with the wondrous noises of the jungle (all three species of native monkeys, toucans, sloths, frogs and many species of birds). And once you book, concierge services are included to help with whatever you need.

Note: There is also the capacity to rent the villa directly next door in conjunction with Villa Ceiba for a comfortable maximum occupancy of 26 people. This is a fantastic option for large groups, family reunions, weddings etc. Please inquire for more information.

About Laura Lyle

The owners of Villa Ceiba are from the United States and wanted a place that could accommodate their whole family for vacations. It needed to be comfortable, private, but accessible to the best that Manuel Antonio has to offer. They enjoy the villa regularly themselves both for pleasure and to ensure it is updated and well maintained for their guests.

Laura Lyle purchased this villa in 2015

Why Laura Lyle chose Manuel Antonio

After over a year of searching for just the right slice of this paradise, they came across this parcel of land, just shy of 2 acres, very private, unlike other rental homes in the vicinity that are all house and no land and on top of each other!

What makes this villa unique

Centrally located and at the same time, privacy and truly located in the jungle, with spectacular Pacific ocean views!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ceiba is beautiful and secluded with views that will have you standing in awe, whether it is in the infinity pool, on the deck, in the kitchen, or from your room. Laura is the most accommodating host I have ever encountered, in every aspect from transportation, to recommendations food or excursions. The people of Manuel Antonio are helpful and you feel like their guest, not an intruder to their home. English is not a barrier to communicating with the vast majority of anyone you meet and speak with on your trip. The wildlife is ever present in the jungle and fruit trees surrounding the house, and they add such a dimension to the enjoyment of your stay. GO, you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful views of ocean and jungle

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay while in Manuel Antonio for our vacation. Each room had beautiful views of the ocean and forest. We saw lots of wildlife just sitting outside on the patio or in the pool. Monkeys came by every day, they were so much fun to watch in the trees. We could hear howler monkeys in the morning and evenings along with the ocean waves. Laura was very helpful and got back to me if I had a question right away. One morning, I texted her at 6:30 am about an urgent care for my niece who had a fever, she called me back in a few minutes & sent me directions to an urgent care along with a link on google maps. My niece got antibiotics and was feeling better by the afternoon. Laura was also very knowledgeable about fun things to do and places to visit while there. It was very hot and humid while we were there, each bedroom had AC which kept it comfortable for sleeping and one sitting room also had AC. The kitchen did not have AC and we found cooking in the kitchen for dinner was too hot without AC, so we only had breakfast and lunches at the villa and ordered takeout or ate out for dinner. This home was clean and the linens and towels were new and beach towels were provided. The renters before us left the fridge freezer door open and when we arrived, we could not turn the fridge on until the freezer thawed , so Laura got us a huge bag of ice so our food didn't spoil overnight. The next day she had someone come look at the fridge, but after the freezer thawed it worked fine. I would highly recommend renting from Laura, if you have any problems, she takes care of them right away.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Awesome place. Laura is great.

Very steep driveway, 4 wheel drive cab out but Laura will take you up the hill where you can catch a cab.

Pool and view are incredible, wildlife is great, howlers are around.

Great AC, nice beds, cool place.

AMAZING FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

The house had space to accommodate our entire family of 11. The kids(and adults too) had an amazing time in the pool. While the area around the pool was not huge there was sun for a good portion of the day and shade in other spots to get out of the sun for some much needed shade. The monkeys visited each morning while we had coffee playing in the trees beside the deck. Lots of lizards round about. Amazing views from the front side of all the rooms in the house and at the pool area! Close to town and beach.

The beach days were awesome. The home owner called ahead to reserve beach chairs and large umbrella/tent to accommodate all of us, where the beach staff took very good care of us serving food beverages and booking our beach activities.

We did an ATV adventure, Catamaran tour where some of the group snorkelled and saw tons of beautiful fish and Coral, we did a fishing excursion, no fish but saw hundreds of porpoise! We had amazing meals at all of the local restaurants and the staff at all were very friendly and patient with our poor Spanish...We had dinner in home one evening with a gourmet chef and his 2 sous chefs which was excellent. The stone fired pizzas were delicious!

A few Cons that we wish we had known prior to going was the very steep hills you had to climb from the house to get to town(Laura was great to book 4x4 taxis when we requested them)and by the end of the week the swimming pool had become quite cloudy and dirty....granted its very hot there and we used it a ton! The "path" that leads to the beach was very long, slippery and not really a path at all...I don't recommend taking it without hiking gear incl long pants and boots.

The pros definitely out weighed the few cons and overall we had an amazing time!

Perfect home for a large family

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home that made for the perfect stay in Costa Rica. The home is open, with beautiful views from the main floor and the bedrooms. .Home is well equipped with everything you might need and laid out in such a way that you don't feel you are on top of each other. Laura (home owner) was extremely helpful during our stay and was always on hand if we had questions, or wanted to book excursions., etc.

AMAZING HOUSE, AMAZING LOCATION, AMAZING SERVICE

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion in Manuel Antonio this year and we absolutely LOVED this house. The house is beautifully laid out and each bedroom has a breathtaking view of the ocean. The best part of the house is the amazing help and service of the hostess Laura. We came during a hurricane and she helped us amend our plans so that we still had an amazing trip. She helped us set up a wonderful Chef, private yoga lesson, private massages and a tour of the park. Having Laura there made the trip run so smoothly. Additionally, the house is located in a great location where you can walk to the grocery and some cute restaurants. Every detail of the house and the service was first class. I highly recommend this house!
