We were a party of 8 and found the villa spacious and very comfortable. Great location (5 min walk to beach, 2 min by taxi to Manuel Antonio, walking distance to nearby restuarants). The highlight was the wildlife coming by the villa everyday (Toucans tapping on the window at 7am every morning, monkeys coming by, Sloth in a nearby tree). We will be back to Casa Alegria.

I brought my family to his house to celebrate Christmas. The concierge service was outstanding as well as the wonderful maid and maintenance man. They all made us feel at home and serviced our needs and requests immediately. The house is very spacious and had a great layout for family to gather in any room or enjoy their own private space. The views were spectacular and the monkeys and tucans seemed to consider the trees at the house their residences.
Six of us stayed for a week the end of April. We all had a great time. Location of the villa couldn't have been better. The views from the balconies and pool were out of his world. The walk to the beach was not bad seeing we were all in pretty good shape, the hill on the way back up may be a challenge for some. We seen plenty of wildlife while having our coffee or a cocktail by the pool. Monkeys, sloths, toucans, lizards were regular visitors every day. The villa had all the amenities you could ask for. Michael was a pleasure to work with, answered all our questions and returned emails promptly. Sani the house concierge was one of the most friendly and honest people you could meet. He took care of all of our needs and recommended some of the best tour guides one could ask for. We all did the 7 action packed adventure with Quepo Canyoning, the trip was awesome. All of the restaurants Sani recommended were wonderful. Fred took us on a great tour of Manuel Antonio Park. Hailyn the housekeeper was fantastic, everything was spotless when we returned from a long adventures day.

My wife and I rented Casa Alegria as part of our "Friendsmoon". Our friends met us in Costa Rica at the end of our honeymoon and we all stayed together at Casa Alegria. When we arrived we were met by Sani, the house concierge who was our guiding shepard for all things fun and local during our stay. Sani was a wealth of information and made our stay feel even more like home. The house itself was immaculate and extremely fair on price given the level of luxury and beauty of the home. The beach wasn't an easy walk but it was definitely close (you can hear the waves crashing from the house). Overall I'd recommend this house to Family trips and Friend trips alike. We had a blast and can't wait to go back and explore CR even more!
