Although the pictures are fantastic, they just don’t do Casa Grande Vista the justice it deserves. We absolutely loved this place. Camilo, the concierge was fantastic. No better recommendation than,,,,there is no place I’d rather stay than in Casa Grande Vista. Everything went smooth from check-in to check-out. Thank you Camilo for your helping with everything from the private chefs to the planned excursions. Perfect!!!”
This home was truly the perfect getaway, complete with the best concierge and spectacular views. Pictures cannot do it justice!
Camilo, the concierge, was the most helpful and kind man. He truly made our visit, he was so available and quick to respond. It felt like we had our own local friend to help us get around, and find whatever we needed!
The home was even better than we imagined, equipt with all the amenities needed to enjoy yourself. It was kept very clean, and the maids were very sweet and efficient.
To our surprise, this rental also came with pets! Two adorable, playful little pugs named Romeo and Juliet kept us company throughout our stay. There was also the sweetest little kitty, who we named Mango due to her orange color.
Casa Grande Vista made the perfect home for our first visit to Costa Rica, we wish we could have stayed forever!

Absolutely beautiful home. Very comfortable for our family group of 9. Camilo was very helpful and quick to respond to all of our last minute requests for excursions and last minute car rental cancellation. Would definitely stay at this home again.

This property is like living in royalty! The manager, Camilo, was the most attentive, informative person I’ve ever dealt with and I have been to multiple properties around the world and this property ranks #1. We had one of our kids get injured and they had bandaids delivered to the property. This is just one of many examples of the above and beyond kind of service we got at this property. Beautiful rooms throughout and a beautiful pool overlooks a view of paradise (not to mention the highest view in Manuel Antonio). If this is the location you want to be in, then this house is a must!
Hi Colleen,We are thrilled to receive such a glowing review of your recent stay and truly appreciate the compliments of Camilo who always goes above and beyond to ensure that his guests have a stress free and memorable experience.Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.Much appreciated,DonFounder, CR Vacation Properties
We were two families - three boys and four adults. The home was phenomenal. The pictures can't do it justice. In addition to the stunning views and open air living, we loved being so close to great restaurants. Camilo, our concierge, was fantastic. He booked the best tour companies for our five-star excursions, including mangrove kayak, zipline, waterfall tour, canyoning, catamaran/kayak and river rafting. He answered any text immediately and was so accommodating, moving things around for us and giving us general advice. He arranged private chefs, Alejandro and Elejier who made us fantastic meals. The home was so great and the chefs were so great we stayed in three nights to enjoy the amazing meals, relaxation and beautiful sunsets. We watched macaws and toucans from the patio. 9 nights was not enough.
Hi Jennifer,We truly appreciate your 5 star review and thrilled to hear that you had such a great time on all of your excursions, had fantastic meals prepared by our local Chefs and that Camilo took great care of you.Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.Pura VidaDonFounder, CR Vacation Properties
As a travel agent and travel planner I have been fortunate enough to stay at properties throughout the world. This may be the best bang for your buck on the planet. The view is the million dollar view that you would expect to pay $1000 plus a night for. The staff who communicate and books excursions for you are unbelievably helpful. The location is at possibly the highest point in Manuel Antonio, allowing for those amazing views, yet is just a four minute ride down to the beach. The grocery store is next door, and they give you a discount for renting at this home. 4 bedrooms and 3 baths on the main level. 1 seerste bed and bath suite outside downstairs. Perfect setup for an older child or an extra set of parents who want a little quiet space. This is not the Four Seasons. You will have bugs and birds and all sorts of tropical type things around. If you neat pristine and stark, this is not for you. If you want the most amazing view, traditional Costa Rica experience. This is it. Perfect for two families to share also as two bedrooms have en-suite baths for the adults, and two kids rooms, one with. Ink beds, share a hall bath, perfect for kids of all ages. The entire living, dining and kitchen are all right in the middle and the living and dining open directly to the expansive pool deck and beautiful pool. There is not a reason to have to wake up at the crack of dawn and hurry to the beach to get a chair when you can simply walk out and relax in your own pool with a better view. Take your time getting to the beach is a huge luxury. Also, coming home after a long day of excursions, whether it is rainforest hiking, zip lining, surfing, or any of the other amazing activities that they will set up for you, to come home and take a refreshing sip in the pool and have a cocktail is the perfect experience. Grilling out or having a chef come and cook by the pool while the red macaws fly by is an unreal experience. Believe me. If you are a laid back and not super snotty traveler, you will love this. I enjoy a pristine suite at a five star resort as much as the next guy, but in Costs RicA, where you want a much local experience and flavor, this is an amazing home. They can have the house stocked with groceries, chef arranged for a few nights ( highly recommend) and daily housekeeping is wonderful. You won’t regret this;)
Scott,We appreciate your very thorough and exciting review and we are thrilled that you and your group enjoyed the Villa, staff and our beautiful Manuel Antonio area.Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.Pura VidaDonOwner, CR Vacation Properties
Absolutely an amazing house, with the best concierge! You can’t go wrong with this property!
We had an AMAZING trip. The house was perfect for our group of 10+ 2 kids. The view was breath taking— couldn’t get any better! The grocery store down the street was super convenient. Camilo our concierge was fabulous. He made our trip super easy and had great recommendations. He was such a pleasure to work with. We can’t wait to come back! Pura vida!
Hola Cheryl,We truly appreciate your 5 star review of your recent stay at our very popular Villa and thrilled that you enjoyed the convenience of the Villa and our dedicate Concierge Manager and Vacation Coordinator, Camilo as his primary role is to help make your vacation extremely stress free and memorable and it sounds like he accomplished that goal.Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.Pura VidaDon
After reading previous reviews, I KNEW THIS PLACE WOULD BE AMAZING, BUT PICTURES CANNOT DO JUSTICE TO THE UNBELIEVABLE VIEW WHEN YOU STEP INTO THE HOUSE. shiona and camilo took great care of us, the communication began well before we arrived. transportation was arranged to and from the airport, any excursion we chose was booked for us. our driver for the 3 hour journey from San Jose was very accommodating and the mercedes van was ample room for our party of 12.
Our group of 12 included 6 adults and 6 teens, and while we were at max occupancy, the house did not feel crowded. the convenience of the market down the street allowed us to cook many meals at the house. the maid service kept us well stocked in towels for the pool. the washer/dryer was nice to have on site. hairdryers and body wash were provided, bring your own shampoo/conditioner.
we chose to do the off the beaten path tour as well as the mangrove estuary tour. all tours include transportation and they picked us up at the house. both were great but very different. please be aware you will be jumping off of ledges into water as well as sliding down a 25ft waterfall for off the beaten path. the mangrove estuary tour was very informative way to learn about and experience that environment. we saw lots of wildlife. the lunch provided at the tour owners' home was excellent and they were very welcoming. we also visited the national park and public beach which were both easily reached by taking the public bus, the bus stop is a very short walk from the house. there are many great restaurants within walking distance of the house or a short bus ride.
it's very possible to see a great deal of wildlife from the house, bring your binoculars. as a hobby, my mom photographs birds and she spotted 22 different species at the house including scarlet macaws, parrots, toucans and many more. there was also a very large green iguana at the top of a tree nearby for a few days. monkeys came to the house on our last day. we also had the pleasure of experiencing the domestic animals. the two pugs that live next door, romeo and juliet, were welcome visitors on a regular basis.
we couldn't have asked for a better experience for our family and highly recommend casa grande vista. the team made our stay very easy and took care of all our needs.
Hi Laura,Thank you for providing such a great review of your experience staying at our Casa Grande Vista Villa and we are delighted to hear that you were pleased with the Villa and our team as well. Please come and visit again.Much appreciated,DonOwner, CR Vacation Properties
This was the last leg of our visit to Costa Rica and it couldn't have been better! Absolutely beautiful house, beautiful view. The Concierge, Geralyn, was very helpful! We went on the Mangrove Estuary Tour and had a wonderful time. Several of us are biologists and were very impressed with our tour guide, Mile - she was very passionate and respectful and informative about the environment and the wildlife. Then to come home to Casa Grande Vista was wonderful!!
Hi Linda,Thank you for your review and we are thrilled that you had such a great time at our Casa Grande Vista Villa. Hopefully, we can host your group again on a future vacation.Much appreciated,Don
