Behind the design
After extensive travel with his children and grandchildren, the owner strived to create in Vista Oceana the ideal villa for large groups of friends or extended families. While traveling with family and friends can be a wonderful experience sometimes you find the need for your own space and for that reason he designed the villa as 3 structures all interconnected behind privacy walls and courtyard enclosures. To further ensure that each guest had their privacy he designed all 7 bedrooms with their own bathroom and 6 of the ensuites have private balconies with ocean views.
As you enter into the enclosed courtyard you will find the Fountain Suite on your right, this is a very spacious 400 SF suite with a king size bed and a pullout sofa, great for a family or couple that prefers to be just a few steps away from all of the activity in the principal house. While this suite does not afford an ocean view it does offer a very relaxing jungle view where monkey's, sloths and Toucans are often spotted.
From the courtyard, you will also enter into the Main Villa where you will find the great room, this is where everyone comes together to watch videos of the day's tour, enjoy meals or just hang out and have fun. Also on this level, there is a powder room and one master suite with a private balcony and ocean views, great for those who don't like stairs or mom's that want to keep an eye on their baby and yet be a part of the fun. On the second floor, you have 3 more over size suites, one with a jacuzzi tub, all with private balconies and incredible ocean views. Moving up to our 3rd. level you will find 350sf. of covered deck with casual seating, two hammocks, and possibly the best views in all of Manuel Antonio, what a terrific place to spend an afternoon or night, yes we have had guests sleep up there.
Returning below and leaving the great room you step out to our pool area where everyone will enjoy themselves, we have a large covered patio, sun deck, pool with swim up bar and a toddler area 12" deep and 6 feet square. We also have the sunken bar-b-q pit at the swim up bar, both of which are under a thatched palm roof, so no need to get sun burnt no matter which side of the swim up bar you are on.
As you leave the pool area under the thatched overhead you enter the upper floor of our 2 story guest house, this floor contains the kitchenette, full bath, and bedroom with private balcony with ocean views. The lower suite has a private balcony with ocean views as well.
The owner wanted a modern house and yet wanted to avoid a cold sterile feeling and incorporated many natural materials to add warmth and character to the villa, stone walls, and accents in the front of the villa, teak structures, and palm thatched roofs, hand carved stone sinks and stone countertops, wood ceilings, a hand carved stone fountain in the courtyard, slate walkways and decks in all outdoor areas, stained glass, table tops and headboards cut horizontally from massive trees the Tico's call them cookies. The entire villa is furnished with hand crafted furniture created by Costa Rican artisans and designed by the owner and the walls are highlighted with pieces of Costa Rican art.

Swimming pool on the same level as the social area
Relax and enjoy a spectacular sunset in our double sided infinity edge pool that seems to melt into the pacific, which features a swim-up-bar complete with BBQ, refrigerator, and sink. The pool also has an area 12 inches deep for those with toddlers to enjoy. Be a part of the fun in or out of the pool. No need to hike down the stairs to find the pool hidden in the jungle.

Walk to the beach
Vista Oceana is the closest luxury home to the national park and public beach at Playa Espadilla with 4 bedrooms or more. The villa is conveniently located on a paved street just 80 yards from the Manuel Antonio road and the Costa Verde Hotel where you can wave down a taxi or catch the bus in front of the hotel, or walk to any number of fine restaurants, from there the beach is just a 10 minute walk down the main Manuel Antonio road!
Nature surrounds you
We have all 3 species of monkey's, Capuchin, Mono Titi, and Howler visit the villa frequently, the Capuchin and Titi almost daily, occasional sloths, flocks of toucans, and many spectacular lizards may be seen about the villa. Hundreds of species of birds have been spotted from balconies in this area and if you are very fortunate you may even spot a mother whale and her calf only a few hundred yards off of the beach.
Incredible close ocean views
Vista Oceana is unique among the Luxury Vacation Rental Villas in Manuel Antonio. The design and name of this incredible house were inspired by the unmatched 180-degree panoramic ocean views it commands. Virtually every room in this villa has unobstructed ocean views, including nine bathrooms. The panoramic view stretches from the world famous Manuel Antonio national park across the long public beach and up to the rocky shoreline of the Mariposa Peninsula to the north. You will find abundant space and privacy for your entire group to enjoy in this 6300 square foot climate controlled house, which includes 7 elegant master suites. The villa is located 1000 ft from the ocean and sits atop a small bluff elevated 200 ft. above the beach allowing you to hear the waves breaking as you watch the surfers below.
Unlike many homes in the area that require you to travel up or down two or three flights of stairs to enter the villa, Vista Oceana is built at street level allowing easy entry into the villa for those with babies, the infirmed, or the elderly, it also makes getting your luggage, groceries, and surfboards in and out a breeze. With 3 bedrooms on the fist floor, this villa could be considered disability friendly.
