We stayed with my family of 12, and we absolutely loved the house. The view is spectacular. Very safe, clean, great beds, and most
Importantly for us was our personal concierge, Camilo! Talk about top notch service and making excursions and dinners stress free. We were spoiled with service. Camilo is truly the best! Diego, the property manager was quietly working behind the scenes to make sure everything was going as expected. Luis and Chris prepared a great dinner and breakfast for us. Great team! We made the best memories. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We had two families (4 adults 5 kids) stay at the Casa Grande Vista over Christmas and everything was fantastic. CGV had plenty of space and everybody had their own bed.
Camillo did an outstanding job in all areas, including immediate responses to our inquiry prior to booking, lining up our shuttle to CGV and then setting up some outstanding tours.
Casa Grade Vista is in an excellent location with great views. The grocery Store down the hill was extremely convenient along with close restaurants and shops. Loved the pool with views and each room had an air conditioner that worked very well. We had two chefs, both outstanding but preferred Chef Dez...she was fantastic.
We really can’t say enough good things about casa grande vista!! We had a week and it wasn’t enough!
First, the house is situated in the best part of Manuel Antonio/Quepos. It sits high up on a hill so, the view of the pacific is wide and expansive. It’s truly breathtaking!
The house is well appointed inside, but we really spent the entire time outside. We woke up early every morning to enjoy coffee on the porch looking out over the ocean and watching the macaws fly all over. The bird watching is amazing!
The pool is the perfect size and we spent hours and hours having fun or looking out over the ocean.
We ate many wonderful meals out on the porch.
The best part of Costa Rica is the wonderfully kind people. And the people of casa grande are just fantastic. Camilo helped us make arrangements ahead of our trip and helped us everyday with taxis, excursions, reservations and general info. He is a complete gem and truly symbolizes pura Vida! Diego was at the house every day and was so kind and helpful in every way. The cleaning ladies were also so sweet and made sure the house was tidy. One of the best parts about cgv is the two pugs, Romeo and Juliet. They made our day everyday…and sometimes spent the night with us! We couldn’t wait to see them each day when we got home!
One of the highlights of our trip was a rain forest Jeep tour by Luis. Camilo can set it up for you. It was incredible! We hiked down to some beautiful waterfalls and swam and then enjoyed lunch cooked over an open fire. So authentic and delicious!
An ATV tour is also a lot of fun and you must see the Manuel Antonio forest, of course.
There are so many great restaurants to try-it’s almost impossible to get to them all.
One of the best things we did was to hire Jose, a private chef to cook for us a few meals. He was a complete delight and his cooking skills are magnificent! He is a trained chef, so he’s the real deal. Ask him to do a taco bar for lunch-amazing!
We will be back to casa grande vista one day. It was truly one of the best vacations we ever taken with our family. We miss it already!!
We were two families with 3 small kids between us (all under 4). We SO enjoyed our time here-- the view was amazing, the pool was just the right size, the layout worked well for families (3 bedrooms- one had bunk beds and another bed, perfect kids room), the kitchen was large and updated, the location one block from a grocery store made keeping everyone happy very easy.
The team was great-- helped us arrange amazing tours (rainforest, white water rafting, a private chef dinner at our home). We had incredible experiences.
This is a new house- so only reason for 4 stars vs 5 is the need to address a few issues for using the house as a guest house. I believe the owners are addressing the issues (need for better railing in one spot on the deck, a small leak in the laundry room). Definitely recommend this place-- we'll be back..
The house was the perfect size for our group and we pretty much stayed outside the entire trip as the view was amazing!! Pictures are accurate as well. Shiona was so wonderful and helped us plan beforehand and had everything organized upon arrival! Will definitely be back!! Thanks again!
We LOVED our five star stay here. Here is a sample of what you will enjoy as you book your vacation here:
Shiona: The woman who manages the property and serves as your concierge during your stay is sweet, knowledgable, and willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay five stars. After a very long day of adventure she even arranged for the BEST pizza to be delivered right to our door! She recommended great places to eat, arranged for an amazing rainforest excursion, and was only a phone call away whenever we had a question.
Luxury: This place feels like your very own luxury hotel. Everything from the finishings, the amenities, the cleanliness, the modern but cozy feel. Everything has been remodeled with style and comfort in mind. It feels quiet and remote, but it’s in the middle of everything. Housekeeping included!
A/C: We stayed elsewhere in Costa Rica without A/C. It's the key to a good night sleep! Each bedroom has its own climate control!
Beds: Speaking of a good night’s sleep, these beds are the REAL deal. Best beds money can buy. Nice and big too (hard to find king beds in most VRBOs)
Location: The property is situated near everything you’d want to experience as part of your Costa Rica adventure. Beach, quaint town (Quepos), rainforest, waterfalls…and wildlife roam the roadside jungle. There’s also a great market just a stone’s throw away that offers a discount to people who stay at this place!
The view: We walked to the closest beach on one of the days and it’s a very ambitious walk with lots of elevation change, but this a worthy price to pay for the view, which is just spectacular.
Kitchen: The kitchen is so well appointed — has everything you need, lots of space, and top of the line appliances
Things to be aware of:
The nearby National Park is closed on Mondays. Plan accordingly!
This is a rainforest. There are bugs. Nothing big and scary, but bring bug spray!
You will need some kind of transportation to get to anything other than a market and some shopping and restaurants. Either a rental car, the local bus system, or have Shiona arrange for a personal or shared shuttle.
If you drive from here to the airport in San Jose, give yourself plenty of time. It is a single lane road for the much of the way and if there’s traffic you may miss your flight. You HAVE to be at the airport at least an hour and a half before departure for international flights. We’d recommend leaving at least four or five hours prior to your flight.
Casa Grande Vista is the perfect house to unwind and get your vacation on. The house is open and airy, creating lots of gathering spots for your group to linger, all with incredible views of the ocean. Both relaxing and luxurious, and conveniently located for everything in Manuel Antonio. Above all, the service is incredible. Shiona really ensured that our vacation was perfect, and went above and beyond to make every detail special. We are already talking about when we are coming back!
We loved staying at Casa Grande Vista! Our family of six (4 kids ages 15, 13 and 11 year old twins) plus mom, dad and Nana thoroughly enjoyed the breathtaking vistas, and especially the sunsets! We had plenty of private space but great common areas - we especially enjoyed the gorgeous infinity pool! It was the perfect take-off spot for all of our many adventures - all arranged expertly by our wonderful concierge Shiona. Shiona arranged zip-lining, rafting, a catamaran tour, surf lessons, private chef, dinner reservations and even got a doctor's appointment when one kid got an ear infection AND arranged to have the cab take us there! We were exceedingly pleased with all of the activities and services she arranged! Definitely go to this spectacular place and put yourself in her hands - you won't regret it!
The house was perfect for our family of 10! The view is fantastic and the spacious deck offers a place to enjoy it. The house is clean, well stocked and comfortable for a large group. Shiona is a bonus and very helpful. Also good location in Manuel Antonio. Would love to return Grande Vista!
Great stay with our group of 8. Had a wonderful meal set up by Shiona who was the best and most helpful during our stay. She truly made our trip special with her attention to detail and quick responses. Bit of a hike up the driveway for some of our crew but the owner arranged for our luggage and us to be driven down when we left which was very appreciated. Grocery store close was also convenient! Had a great time!
