#1 Costa Rica destination

Got to stay a week at the beautiful Discovery Beach House …can’t imagine any place better anywhere!! The elegant home has everything you could need and is kept immaculate daily by the staff.. inside and out… Manuela gives you a special touch on your bed daily that we appreciated! Sabrina takes care of your everything… heaven right on the beach… will go back hopefully many times

Response from the owner Heaven right on the beach. We love that! That’s exactly how we feel and how we want our guests to feel in our home. High five to our staff for always pouring their hearts into their work. We look forward to pampering you in paradise again. Gratefully, Evelyn & David Homeowners

Exceeded Expectations!

We can’t say enough about how wonderful our stay was at DBH! The house/pool/grill/beach/jacuzzi were enjoyed by all! The staff was amazing, both attentive and discreet. We spent most days enjoying the property, talking and hanging out since we were in Costa Rica for a multi-generational family reunion. Thank you to Evelyn and David for sharing their incredible slice of paradise and allowing our family to continue to create lasting bonds. We will be back!

This house was perfect for our family vacation. The combination of comfortable accommodations, phenomenal location and outstanding service exceeded all our expectations.

The kitchen is very well stocked, has great appliances and ample space. The entire property is very well maintained and cleaning services were not only thorough but delightful. Each day we were excited to see what towel art Manuela left on our beds!

Sabrina was so helpful both with pre-trip arrangements and bookings and also during our stay.

Muchas gracias for making our stay in Costa Rica so wonderful!

Amazing people, amazing vacation, vacation perfection.

This house is spectacular. The staff made it even more spectacular. From the big pool and spa, the personalized towel art turndown service each evening, the maintenance staff (Roberto) bring our guide to all wildlife on property pointing out multiple sloths, monkeys, iguanas, and lizards, to amazing chef cooked meals, all with the beach just steps away with perfect swimming, sand, waves, and restuarants/bars for a perfect beach day, our vacation at the Discovery Beach House will be one our entire family will remember forever. Even more, the concierge services of Sabrina and Geralyn provided us support and advice before and during our trip with transportation, restaurants, and activities that made our trip seamless. Our waterfall jumping and ziplining activities were once in a lifetime! Thank you all for a vacation we will cherish forever. We hope to visit again someday (soon). Pura Vida!

What a great place

What can I say. The house is awesome inside and out. Well stocked. AC all over. The pool, hot tub and outside areas are so nice. The location is great. The staff is awesome. Sabrina, the concierge, set us up with some great tours before we arrived. The guides she used for us were amazing. Sabrina also had a list of great restaurants. We brought older teenagers with us. They walked to a different restaurant when they wanted to hang by themselves. My wife and I went to some great places on our own. The security/grounds crew are on site at all times. Three brothers trade off the duties. The Manuella kept the house spotless. Monkeys and wildlife every day! The problem is we had to come home.

My family had a wonderful vacation at Discovery Beach House. Sabrina and the good people who tend the house are warm and helpful in every way. (Thanks again!) The house is beautiful and very comfortable. It fit our family of six perfectly. This was our fourth trip to Manuel Antonio, so we have come to know the area very well. Discovery Beach House easily is the best situated house in the area. We will return!

We're thrilled to hear you had a wonderful time and you found our location the best in the area. Paradise awaits at the Discovery Beach House. We look forward to your return. Evelyn & David Homeowners

Beautiful house and location, right on the beach!

In planning our first trip to Costa Rica, Sabrina Segal made us feel comfortable weeks before we got there. She sent us lots of information about the house and booked two tours for my three girlfriends and me. She had a driver all ready to pick us up from the airport and drive us to Manuel Antonia. Upon arrival at the house Sabrina was there to greet us. She was personable and helpful, showing us around the house and grounds. During our stay she was even available to call a taxi when needed.

The two guys who provide 24-hour security and take care of the grounds are the best. Manuela comes to the house every day to clean and will even do your laundry.

The pool is nice and refreshing after a hot day touring the area. The monkeys are so much fun to watch! We had two iguanas hanging out at the pool with us too!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Discovery Beach House and visiting Manuel Antonio. The Zip Line tour through El Santuario Canopy Adventure and the Vacation Buggy Tour with Doppler were highlights of our trip. We also enjoyed going out to eat at the many open air restaurants in the area. Views and sunsets are spectacular. We also had a great meal at Gabriella's at the marina.

There is a nice area within walking distance of the house with a grocery store, couple of restaurants/bars and shopping opportunities.

We did not need a car during our one-week stay. Sabrina set everything up for us and our trip was perfect!

Hi Laura, Thank you for sharing your experiences at the Discovery Beach House. Reading a review like yours makes us happy you had such a wonderful time. It also makes us grateful for the love and attention our staff gave you. They've developed a sixth sense how to make your vacation all all-fun and worry-free - while respecting your privacy. David and I hope to see you again. Paradise awaits! Evelyn & David Homeowners

Monkeys, Pool, Iguana, Beach...and so much more!!!

Incredible location in Manuel Aontonio! House is perfectly located on the beach, set in the trees with monkeys arriving every day! It felt like home; staff was so welcoming and hospitable. Everything was taken care of, never had to do a dish or make a bed, so relaxing and restful. Like our own private hotel! Sabrina was amaizing, taking care of all the details and planing for all the tours and needs we had from restaraunts, taxis, name it. Can't say enough about how wonderful this place is, paradise! Saw more wildlife on the property than on any of the tours we took. We are already playing our return trip! Don't miss this piece of paradise. Thanks so much Discovery Beach House!

These words are music to our ears and exactly the experience we strive to give our guests. We love that you're already planning your return trip (what a compliment!) and we look forward to pampering you in paradise again. Paradise awaits! Evelyn & David Homeowners

Incredible Vacation

The Discovery Beach House was truly an amazing experience. Our family decided to make the trip after the new year, to kick off 2017! It was really more than we could have hoped for. The property is gorgeous - beautiful house, grounds, pool, hot tub, right on the beach. The monkeys come by to visit here and there in the morning, which was so much fun! Our family loved every bit of this vacation.

Sabrina helped us plan the entire vacation, down to every detail of whether the wifi would be good enough for us on vacation, activities, and which restaurants were best on which nights. The owners came by to visit us, too and check-in to see how the vacation was going.

Everything was wonderful. Absolutely recommend the Discovery Beach House. I hope to be back one day!

It was fun meeting you and so gratifying to hear your vacation was all fun and worry free. We look forward to you coming back. Pura Vida, Evelyn & David Homeowners
