Pics do not do this home justice!

It is larger than it appears. Very spacious for our group of eight! Loved that the bedrooms were away from the living area and each with it's own bathroom. The kitchen and family room were also spacious. Loved the ice machine! The outdoor seating has spectacular views! The pool and lounge area are awesome! Geralyn took care of everything from excursions, transportation, and dinners with fabulous Marcos! Dalila was great in keeping the house spotless! The villa is in walking distance to the bus stop to take you to the beach or town. There is a little grocery store in walking distance as well. Monkeys did visit us a few times and the sunsets were gorgeous! We hope to return in the near future! Pura Vida!

Amazing views! Architectural luxury! May 2019

I was tempted to rate this house 1 star- only to selfishly keep it a secret. This house deserves 6 stars. It’s clean, quiet (except for wildlife- monkeys and macaws), comfortable, updated, very safe, and tastefully furnished. The architecture is as stunning as the view and the pool helps cool you down after the daily heat. The kitchen has everything you could ever need, and the beds, rooms, and bathrooms are luxurious. The two master suites have impressive views and are very spacious. If you look at the pictures and think there’s no way they can be true representations of what’s there- they are. Chef Alejandro is amazing. Book this house and that guy next-I’m serious-look into hiring him at least one night. The food was over-the-top amazing. Excursions by Mid-world did not disappoint-professionals and very safe! Check the time of year if you’re going fishing- as we had no luck but apparently it’s not a great time for fishing. Everything made possible by a great concierge “team”-because there are really a lot of people that made the experience memorable and extremely easy. We were a group of 5 dads that needed a break and some fun and this house and team delivered. The outdoor room access took a little getting used to if you haven’t experienced it, but it didn’t take long to feel totally comfortable. It provided a constant sense of simple outdoor living in an otherwise totally modern home- well done architecture. Thanks to all! Pura vida amigos!

Outstanding house, service, and location.

Casa Karma is one of those perfect vacation homes - beautiful, awesome view, has everything we needed, good design and set-up, great location, great concierge Geralyn, and daily maid service. It is great for large families with lots of room to spread out. We could not have asked for a better spot to stay for 5 days! Thank you Stephanie and Kirk.

Hi Lisa,Thank you for your 5 star review and we are thrilled that you and your family had such a great experience with hopefully, lasting memories. We also appreciate your acknowledgement of our hard working and dedicating Concierge and maid service as they always go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible.Thank you for staying with us,Don

Beautiful Villa!

Our family had a wonderful time in Casa Karma and we can't say enough about how perfect it was. Furnishings are beautiful, amenities are great, the property is magnificent and well maintained, the housekeeper kept the villa spotless and dealing with the management was a pleasure! The kitchen was very well equipped. We had daily monkey visits and the birds were just beautiful. Great location - easy to get to any of the beaches, restaurants, park, etc. We've already reserved Casa Karma for next year.

Hi Debbie,We truly appreciate your 5 star review after your 6 week stay at our Casa Karma Villa and look forward to your 2 month stay next year. The birds, monkeys and complete Casa Karma team will be here waiting for you and your family.Much appreciated,Don

Outstanding home and staff to match

Our stay at Casa Karma was amazing. The staff, the view and the house itself are exceptional. From the first communication with the concierge staff, Sabrina and Geralyn, I knew I had made a good choice. They helped me prepare not just for the first portion of my trip in Costa Rica but they sent information that was important for the entire trip. They helped set up one of the best tours I had in Costa Rica “Off the beaten path” and arrange for Desiree to cook a wonderful meal when we arrived on the first day. The house is gorgeous and we saw macaws and toucans everyday. We ended each day lounging by the pool and watching the beautiful sunsets. But the best part staying in Casa Karma was the care and hospitality of Geralyn. When my son was bitten by a raccoon in Manuel Antonio, I made quick call to Geralyn. She arranged for the taxi to take us to a private doctor and we were able to be seen and start rabies shots within a few hours. Every few days after we had left Manuel Antonio, Geralyn continued to check in to make sure my son was doing okay.

Hi Mary Ann,We truly appreciate you taking the time to provide a 5 star review of your stay at our Casa Karma Villa and delighted to hear that our team met or exceeded your expectations. Geralyn is extremely conscientious and truly cares about all of her guests, especially, in time of need as your son required. Glad that he is OK!Thank you for staying with us and please let us know when you would like to return as we would love to have you stay with us again.Much appreciated,Don

Monkeys visit this beautiful home with a view!

Just spent a week at this fabulous home in Quepos/Manuel Antonio. The pictures represent it well. It is a beautiful, clean, well-maintained home ... great views of the ocean / the greenery between the home and ocean. Sits on a hill and the sunsets we observed were amazing! Wildlife? ... absolutely! ... visits from the monkeys on 4 of our 7 days (that we were there for) ... little white faced monkeys were on the roof, the room balconies ... simply passing through on their journey but it was exciting to see them. Adults, teens, and tweens all loved watching them.

The house has two spacious master suites (king bed in each) and two equally spacious rooms (two queens in each) ... and they are "connected" by an open-air hallway which is interesting at first, but you grow to like it pretty quickly. The main area has a kitchen, dining, living area that is massive ... plenty of couches and places to sit ... a kitchen bar that opens to the outside .... which is also impressive with a decent size infinity pool to hang out in, a dining table outside, and then a nice covered area to sit on some comfy couches, have a drink, and take in the sunsets. It was just as pictured and could not ask for more.

The house has wifi which worked well, has a wonderful lady who provides maid service daily ... and she cleans the place up and will do your laundry every day! We also did laundry ourselves in the full-size laundry area in the basement ... it was nice to have this at our disposal.

Kitchen loaded with pots, pans, appliances ... beach towels for us to use at the pool / take to the beach ... all the shampoo and other amenities you needed in each bedroom ... room safe in each room ... again, everything you need and more.

The house is not far from downtown Quepos, the marina, nor the Manuel Antonio area, the beaches, etc. Taxis are readily available whether you need a small one or a larger size (which we did with our nine people).

Cannot forget about Geralyn ... the concierge ... she works with a group of concierges to support a number of properties, but prior to the trip she arranged about 4 excellent tours for us, set us up with Chef Ivan (who cooked for us 3 nights in the house (and it was delicious) ... and even when we needed a cab / shuttle we could text Geralyn and within 10-15 minutes a taxi / shuttle would be at our doorstep .. take us wherever we need.

A great vacation thanks to Don, Sabrina, Geralyn, and their team!

Greg,Thank you for your generous review of your recent stay and the amount of detail which will certainly help our future potential guests. We were extremely sad to hear of your wife's cancer last year but were pleased to be able to postpone your visit until she felt better. Glad that it all worked out and that she is healthy again.Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you on a return visit to our wonderful Manuel Antonio area.Much appreciated,Don

An Unforgettable Vacation

Casa Karma was the perfect place to stay in Costa Rica for our family. The property itself is beautiful, clean and well maintained. We had teenagers as well as two pre-teens and they all had a wonderful time hanging out in the pool and on the main balcony. The plant and wildlife around Casa Karma was the main highlight of our stay. The capuchin monkeys visited almost daily, (we also heard howler monkeys but never saw them) and we all had such a good time watching them. We saw so many birds around the property- scarlet macaws, green parakeets, ducks, kisskidees, even a toucan! So beautiful- I felt like I was in the garden of Eden. The view of the ocean and all the plants and trees was breathtaking, and the sunsets were absolutely amazing. The layout was perfect for larger families- separate bedrooms with balconies- and a wonderful great room for gathering. The maid, Idaly did a wonderful job and took good care of us, and we had a few meals prepared by the on staff private chef, Ivan. The meals that we had were delicious! I would especially recommend having a meal prepared for you on the first night that you arrive so you don't have to worry about dinner after a long day of travel. Gerayln the concierge arranged so many incredible tours for us and was very available all week to arrange transportation for us. The tour guides were top notch and all gave us amazing experiences, and their knowledge of the area was extensive. We did the vacation buggy tour with Dopper and Luis- we all agree this one was our favorite. We were taken off the beaten path in jeeps and saw amazing sights, walked on a suspension bridge, hiked to two waterfalls, followed by a delicious lunch. We also loved the Mangrove Estuary tour with William. We saw lots of monkeys and lizards, and William's passion for the environment was so contagious- we all learned so much, and he made the whole trip fun. Lunch at the end was also amazing. We took a National Park tour with Mile and she was also amazing in her knowledge and ability to spot wildlife- with her telescope we were able to have an up close experience with the animals. We saw many monkeys (titi, capuchin and howler), 3 sloths (two toed and three toed, many birds, lizards, a poison dart frog...too many to name them all. All in all this was by far my most favorite vacation spot! Highly recommended.

Hola Caron,Thank you for the wonderful review of your recent stay at our Casa Karma Villa and delighted to hear that all of you had a tremendous and memorable experience. We would love to host your family again next year and hope that you make it an annual occurrence.Thank you for staying with us,Don

Having travel extensively through Latin America and Europe and staying at some truly exceptional locations I have a high benchmark of success. I was a skeptical about going to Manuel Antonio given its proximity to the San Jose airport, it's about a 3 hour ride. The team at Casa Karma did organize a pick up from the airport in a very comfortable Van, but I continued to be reserved in my expectation.

Nevertheless, I was blown away from the moment we stepped on the property. The property was expansive with an amazing living area and kitchen that opens up to a deck with a pool. One can easily entertain up to 20 people in the area. As our concierge, Geralyn, guided us outside to the deck we saw Macaws flying across the sky. The view across the jungle filled path to the ocean is amazing. In terms of the accommodations, each room has its bathroom, balcony and is extremely spacious. The charm of the property is that while it's in a luxury gated community, it's in the middle of the jungle and wildlife. We experienced the benefits of this firsthand the next morning as we were awaken by monkeys! We couldn't believe it, it was such a surreal experience.

In terms of a coordinated experience, I cannot say I have ever had someone assist as much as Geralyn did with every request we had. From organizing, taxis to excursions to dinner reservations, there was no task too big or small that Geralyn couldn't handle. In fact, Geralyn had everything coordinated so well, people at our destinations had everything prepared for our arrival. Moreover, one of our friends lost his cell phone in a taxi that he had taken from the town of Manuel Antonio and not arranged by Geralyn. We asked if she could help, the cell phone was found and returned to us within an hour. Geralyn was amazing.

We also had arranged a chef to cook for us various night. Ivan was a master chef, I honestly haven't tasted food that good in such a long time. We did attempt to go out to some local restaurants and honestly there was no comparison to Ivan's cooking. It wasn't just the attention to detail, anything we needed Ivan would coordinate and get the particular food and make adjustments on the fly. There was never a no, he would have someone deliver any particular request with 30 minutes if he needed to obtain additional food from the supermarket.

One of our friends at another hotel was celebrating his birthday and Ivan created a feast and he coordinated his efforts with Geralyn to get a birthday cake. We had an amazing party with a fantastic view of the ocean.

While the monkeys didn't come back after the first day, we were pleasantly surprise on our day that we were leaving, 15 squirrel monkeys swung from the trees to wish a goodbye.

It was an unforgettable experience. The only thing we were missing was more time at Casa Karma.

I took my entire family, 10 of us in total to Casa Karma during Easter week. The beautiful home is exactly as shown in the attached pictures. Geralyn is a wonderful, efficient, knowledgeable, young, attractive concierege. She handled all aspects of our trip before and during our trip. She handled all bookings of our various tours, the chef on certain nights and cab rides always appeared within 5 minutes of calling her. While their are many interesting restaurants in the area, the home is built for entertainment, after a busy day of either the beach or touring it was always great to come home to Casa Karma and enjoy a swim, cocktails, a gorgeous sunset and dinner at home. Casa Karma sits beautifully on its property, the views from the patio pool area are stunningly beautiful and all the animals that came to visit, my grandkids were overwhelmed. This vacation far exceeded our expectations in every way, yes it is a bit of hike from San Jose, but after a couple of Margaritas and a dip in the tile lined pool all is forgotten. Manuel Antonio is a magical little part of the world full of natural beauty. I cant say enough about Geralyn, she handled all the details and made this trip one of our finest trips ever. Casa Karma is a vacation paradise.

Hola Ted,Thank you for your great review and we are delighted to hear that you has such a great experience staying at our Casa Karma and that our staff was very accommodating. Please come back and see us again.Best regards,DonOwner, CR Vacation Properties
