“This house is gorgeous! If you like monkeys pick this place as you will watch them swing by throughout the day. It was perfectly clean and communication was great throughout the entire trip.”

“Beautiful home in a gorgeous setting. We were up early every morning and outside watching for monkeys. Dozens of Titi monkeys, howlers and birds visited us each day. Lots of room for family with 4 bedrooms, and spread out so everyone has some privacy when needed. Kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook or you can take a quick drive to dozens of restaurants and stores. The best part of Costa Rica is the freedom to safely drink the water/eat the food without worry of getting sick. The food was outstanding. There are many activities within 10-20 minutes of the house. Zip lines, hiking, beaches, chocolate tour, boat rides, etc. The concierge of the home, Susan is there to help if you need help planning. She arrived right away to check us in and show us around. There’s also a housekeeper who comes in daily to keep the house clean and even does your laundry! We rented a 4X4 and were very glad we had a car. Home is approx 2 1/2-3 hours from the airport and there are some steep hills. There are also a lot of steps in the home but the bottom level can be accessed without going up & down. (2 bedrooms, rec room and pool access downstairs.) We would love to return soon!”

“This house is as beautiful as the pictures you see. We were two couples (the house was bigger than we needed) and we had lots of privacy while still enjoying the time together. The outside area is amazing - the pool is like a private resort pool and the deck has every perfect touch. The concierge services were great (Susan arranged our tours and transportation and was very responsive to all of our requests and questions). Andrea who came to clean every day (and did our laundry!!!) was an absolute doll. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were nice and cool (note that there is not A/C in the public spaces so the kitchen area and pool room can get quite warm). Regardless, this is dream vacation house since you should spend most of your time at the stunning table outside, at the bbq, and around the pool.”

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Tranquilidad!! The house was clean, nicely decorated, and in a great location. We spent most of our time in the lovely pool and the jacuzzi. The first day we saw a troop of Squirrel Monkeys come through the backyard....IT MADE OUR DAY! I highly recommend this property!!

Scott's home is a true jungle oasis! The property is in the perfect location, it backs right up to the jungle - we saw birds, butterflies and monkeys right in the back yard! The home itself is incredible - my family of 5 felt so comfortable and at home immediately after arriving and throughout the entire week! This is such a rare and lucky thing to feel while on vacation. Being greeted upon arrival at the house by the concierge Susan was the perfect welcome, and Andrea kept the home impeccably clean throughout the week - all of the staff were so lovely. My family made use of every part of the house, with highlight definitely being the infinity pool! Every day this was the perfect place to relax; morning, afternoon and evening. Also, the new furniture and renovations throughout the house were wonderful. I highly recommend a stay here! Would 10/10 go back if we had the opportunity to. I also recommend using the concierge Susan to help plan your activities - I'm a big self-planner but Susan was truly a wealth of local knowledge and a huge help to me. And if you have time, I highly recommend having a chef come to the house to prepare a meal. Our favorite night was using the kitchen space, learning about local cuisine and wildlife, and eating dinner as a family on the patio overlooking the pool and jungle Thank you Scott, Susan, Andrea and team for hosting us and giving us one of the best family vacations we've ever had!

“Dont even know where to start!! This is by far my best AirBnB stay. First of all, once you book the house. Scott will put you in contact with Susan. She is amazing, super nice and sent me a ton of info! She helped me organize all of our tours and also book a chef for dinner on my birthday! (HE WAS GREAT TOO! Super friendly and AMAZING COOK! Everyone loved dinner!) Susan was there upon arrival to give us a house tour and also at check out! She knew i was there to celebrate my birthday and the day of my birthday there were balloons and a Happy Birthday sign outside on the patio! I mean, who does that?! Really made it special! She was great! Andrea(housekeeper) she was extremely nice, she was there every morning to clean kitchen, make beds and EVEN WASHED OUR CLOTHES if we wanted. (What airbnb does this?) She was always smiling, super friendly and even recommended us a few spots! THE HOUSE: It was better than expected! It was 11 adults and everyone was very happy! Very close to restaurants, bars, beach. You will have to get a taxi, but taxis are not expensive. Spent most out time in the pool! Rooms and bathrooms were always fully equipped with clean towels every single day! They also have extra beach towels if you want to take them on tours, beach, etc.. Everything was great! I really recommend this home for large families or a group of friends! I would definitely stay here again! PURA VIDA!”

We had the absolute best time staying at Casa Tranquilidad in Manuel Antonio to bring in the New Years! The house completely accommodated our party of 8, with plenty of room for more. The pool and outside upstairs deck was amazing to have family breakfasts and dinners. We loved being tucked up into the edge of the rainforest while being super close to the beach, with views of the ocean from the upper deck. Bottom line, if you are coming to Costa Rica there is no better place to stay to have an unforgettable trip.
