Description of the Manuel Antonio vacation villa rental
Casa Tolteca is a completely private luxury estate, nestled within the enchanted tropical rainforest of Manuel Antonio.

CasaTolteca is the most frequently rented luxury estate for three reasons:

1) Perfect Location - Our secure entrance gate is conveniently located right off the main road to the park. Walk to over a dozen restaurants, bars, a private nature reserve, beaches, and even a casino. You don’t need a car. Almost completely surrounded by rain-forest with no neighbors, exotic birds, monkeys, and other wildlife frequently visit CasaTolteca.

2) Privacy - From virtually every corner of the estate, you have complete privacy. The only thing you see is lush tropical rain-forest and stunning ocean views. Other homes are built on narrow lots. Look to the left or right, and you are looking directly at your neighbor.

3) Horizontal Living - Spread out horizontally, not vertically like most houses in the area, you don't feel like you are confined to the indoors. CasaTolteca is completely private no matter if you are indoors or out. There is room to gather as a group, or retreat to your own private suite.



Extraordinary peace, privacy and seclusion: Despite its easy access to all the essential services, CasaTolteca affords extraordinary peace, privacy and seclusion within the forest. Frequent monkeys, occasional sloths, flocks of toucans, and many spectacular lizards may be observed about the villa. Hundreds of species of birds have been spotted from balconies in this area

Experience CasaTolteca now--its lush jungle setting and breathtaking ocean views are out of this world. Explore the many exciting attractions of this pristine coastal rain forest from one of the most pleasant and delightfully relaxing luxury havens in all of Central America. Please allow us to help assure that you and your entire group enjoy a truly fabulous expedition in this incomparable tropical paradise. Request our free orientation package, including our informative Guide to Manuel Antonio, a set of floor plans for the villa, and an e-brochure. We look forward to hearing from you soon, and to eventually serving you at CasaTolteca!

Area Info
CasaTolteca is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, right off the main road between the nearby town of Quepos and the world-famous National Park. Just walk through our private butterfly garden and out the front gate to easily walk to all the best restaurants, casinos, clubs, bars and discos. Several world-class beaches and the famous National Park are just a five minute drive or ten minute walk from the villa. All this means that you may not need to rent a vehicle during your stay at CasaTolteca, since inexpensive cabs and public buses frequently pass by its main entry gate throughout the day and evening. The CasaTolteca complex is spread out horizontally, not vertically like most other houses in the area, giving an open feeling that you are on a large property, not just in a house. CasaTolteca is surrounded by rain-forest and gardens, not other houses, giving you complete privacy (except, of course, for the monkeys, birds and other animals that frequently visit the house).

During your stay at CasaTolteca, you'll be pampered with daily maid service and regular pool and garden service. You can optionally have any of your meals prepared by a superb chef. Our expert, personable and fluently multilingual concierge will be pleased to assist you with all your pre- and post-arrival planning and arrangements, including travel between San Jose and the villa, special services at the villa, and any of the many amazing eco and adventure tours that are available in the area.

Guestbook

'Thank you for the beautiful accommodations at Casa Tolteca. It was breathtaking and perfect in every way. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, clean, and spacious place to stay, with all the comforts of home. Every morning we were entertained by monkeys, both squirrel and capuchin, out back and around the balconies. We also had a sloth hanging in one of the trees and of course several iguanas on the tree tops--it was fabulous. During our last evening, several toucans swooped by and landed in the tree over the pool. 'Your concierge was wonderful and the maid did a great job. We were greeted by them on Saturday with gorgeous flower arrangements and a huge basket of fresh fruit. The entire villa smelled of fresh flowers. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in and saw the view out over the lush rain forest and the pacific ocean and how perfect everything was. 'We saw more wildlife and beauty from our balcony then we did in the park. It was wonderful.

We loved Casa Tolteca!!!!!
We're already talking about a return trip. The location could not have been better. It was perfect!!!

I just wanted to thank you for renting your wonderful house to us. Everyone had an amazing time and was so impressed with the villa when they arrived. I'm having a hard time focusing today at work with sounds of monkeys still dancing in my head!

We really enjoyed the stay at Casa Tolteca... it was wonderful. My son and his bride had a sunset wedding on the beach, and we had the reception (night-long party) at Casa Tolteca.
The location on the hillside overlooking the bay wowed everyone, as well as the convenience to the beach and shopping. The suites were furnished beyond our expectations... everything was first class and nothing was missing! Thanks!

We had a wonderful time at the villa and I can't thank you enough for all of your help and tips for a great vacation. The villa is just delightful and couldn't have been more comfortable. We loved everything about it. Everyone had a wonderful time, and the time, sadly, just flew by. What a perfect world it would be if we could stay there forever. My husband saw a chipmunk this morning and that showed just how far we've come from the exotic life we lived last week.

Marisol was a dream chef - the food prepared was delicious and there were enough leftovers each time that we never cooked dinner ourselves. Now that's a vacation! Evelyn was also very conscientious and her services made for a perfect week.
Thank you for everything.

We fell in love with Costa Rica the minute we flew over it. The lights in the evening magnificently outlined the huge mountains like a well-lit Christmas tree. I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life. I knew from that point on that I was going to love Costa Rica.
We decided that we wanted to share this adventure with our family and friends and thought it would be a great idea to have our wedding in Costa Rica. I started looking online for villas with the intention of finding several in close proximity where I could house my closest family and friends. With the time constraint I was under to find a location for the wedding, I was feeling a lot of pressure. I found many villas and began emailing them.

The group and I had a great time during our visit to Casa Tolteca... so much so that we're already talking about our next visit. The villa was perfect for our needs, and its location couldn't have been better. The views of ocean and jungle are extraordinary from every level.
Casa Tolteca is ideal for large groups in that it provides two large great rooms for community activities while affording all the privacy of four separate living suites, each with its own kitchen. We used the upper level as the "common area" where we gathered for meals. I truly enjoyed this aspect of the house.
There were seven of us. One couple had a bedroom with a king bed and the other five each had their own bedroom with a king or queen bed and as much privacy or community as they wanted. For us it was perfect-everyone was 100% pleased with their accommodations.
Casa Tolteca's proximity to all the activities available in Manuel Antonio also is perfect. Within a short walking distance are restaurants, casinos, bars and discos-all the basic night life activities. So we could go and come on foot individually as we pleased, without worrying about "drinking & driving." Within a very short drive of the house, or even a walk if one is up to it, are the beach, the park, a grocery store, ATM, and everything else one could possibly need while on a beach vacation.
In addition to affording easy access to the best of Manuel Antonio, Casa Tolteca is readily accessible to the attractions of the immediate area. Quepos and its airport are just a few minutes away, and wider area attractions such as the Rainforest Tram and the beaches of Jaco, Dominical and Matapalo are within an hour's drive. But most importantly, CasaTolteca is a great place to relax while you're having fun right there in Manuel Antonio.
The furnishings are fine and what one would expect for a tropical vacation rental home. In other words, the furnishings are not so luxurious that we had to worry about them but at the same time, they are comfortable, easy to maintain and attractive for the setting. The beds are accommodating, with the proper degree of bedding and comfortable pillows.

When Marshall and I visited the villas, we knew from the minute we stepped into them that they're perfect for my large group of thirty to fifty people. And their location is convenient to everything, including other accommodations in case of overflow. There's plenty of room immediately adjacent to the villas, so those who don't stay in them can easily join everyone else in the villas.
The view from CasaTolteca is absolutely amazing! So we've decided to have the wedding and reception there.
Your concierge is also assisting me in planning my wedding, which is truly a blessing. He's coordinating everything for me and taking care of all the logistics of the event. All I have to do is relax and enjoy the experience.
I couldn't have asked for a better place and I have you to thank for it. You have been more than generous in assisting us in this whole process. Even though my wedding isn't until February of next year, I know that I'm in good hands.
It comforts me to know that my family and friends will be taken care of when they stay at Casa Tolteca. This will be a lifetime experience for my fiancé and me, and for all our family and friends who will be lucky enough to spend it with us on our wedding day.
Thanks again for everything you've done for us.

The beds are accommodating, with the proper degree of bedding and comfortable pillows.

The pool and gardens surrounding the house are attractive and soothing. The gardens are natural and blend in with the local surroundings; nothing is out of place. The pool is perfect-just the right size. Not too big to be a distraction (we're there for the beach, after all) and perfect for just cooling down or hanging off the edge while taking in the view of the jungle and ocean. The waterfall at the end of the pool is a nice touch, and the water cascading over the side provides relaxing music to the ear.
Your concierge is very helpful and available when needed. He makes sure things are going well without being "in your face." In other words, he knows how to be there and take care of things (and us) while still being in the background. He arranged a tour of Manuel Antonio Park for us and our guide was great.
Our housekeeper did all that is expected in terms of housekeeping services. She's professional, and she respected our privacy. Overall, she does a super job and has a nice personality. We also had a cook for brunch and dinner. She too did a great job and the food was delicious.
As you probably can tell from the preceding comments, we had a great time and we love Casa Tolteca. We've done similar trips to Acapulco and Tuscany, most often in Acapulco at a villa that caters to celebrities and has been featured in Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. So we keep comparing this experience to that one. If we had to choose, we'd go with Casa Tolteca. Much of it has to do with the facility. The layout of the house is perfect to accommodate groups of six to twelve while maintaining individual privacy. Also, Casa Tolteca is cleaner and better kept.
Overall, Casa Tolteca is a great place and we're very excited about returning soon.
Although I haven't met you face-to-face, you two are a great pleasure to work with. I feel very comfortable doing business with you and have always felt that you've been totally up front and accommodating. You strike me as sincerely concerned about providing a wonderful vacation experience for others. I also liked the material that you sent prior to the trip: the brochures, the layout of the house, and so forth. Don't change a thing in your presentation!
Thank you so much for allowing us to experience Casa Tolteca. We look forward to spending more time there and we can promise you that you've gained a new customer for life. Thank you!

We had an absolutely awesome time in Costa Rica, and did not want to come home! It is hard to get all of our family together in one place as they are scattered across the U.S. And in Japan! Everyone was thrilled with the accommodations, and the location of the house was perfect as everyone was very comfortable with jumping on the bus! The house is perfectly arranged, especially for a group like ours, and was extremely well equipped!

We loved the upper deck and the views, and our resident iguana. We had a wonderful Christmas dinner prepared by your staff, who were delightful! And I cannot say enough about how great Thomas was. He was so responsive, capable, and personable. You have a real gem in Thomas!!! The house exceeded our expectations, and I will definitely recommend it to others who may be interested!

The whole family had a blast. The house is beautiful as well as the surrounding property. The kids all had no problem navigating there way around the house and pool area and they could have gone nowhere and been in heaven the whole trip. One day about 30-40 spider monkeys descended on the property and stayed around for about a half hour giving everyone a very unique treat. Zip lining, para sailing, deep sea fishing, golfing, and small side trips were all very easy to accomplish due to the location of the property. Although we really didn't need Thomas assistance that much he was available whenever we did need him, thank him for all his help. The chefs were great and we all ate more than we needed. They also did a great job with the birthdays we had. We are already looking into dates for next year for a return trip around the same time. The weather was perfect and we all felt much more comfortable in Costa Rica(Manual Antonio) than on most of our previous family vacations to Mexico.

Thank you again for opening your house to us and we will be in contact for next year.

We really enjoyed our stay and loved Casa Tolteca. It was a dream-come-true to take our children and grandchildren with us, although unfortunately my daughter couldn't make it with the new baby. The house was all we had hoped and was perfect for an extended family like ours because each group had its privacy, its own place.

Thomas was a tremendous help; he is a real asset, always available and coming over to see for himself how everything is going, which really allayed my nervousness because taking this group of so many people at such an expense, we really wanted everyone to be happy and felt responsible for their happiness (sounds crazy but I did) - Thomas was so consistently helpful that I calmed down, which helped my vacation.

We LOVE Casa Tolteca!

Again thank you very much. You have a beautiful property and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about going to CR.

The house was stunning, well appointed, comfortable and relaxing. I would give it an A+.

The wait staff (Cornelio and his wife) were wonderful and also A+. The maid service was just perfect.

I thought the house and services were quite terrific.

We would come again in a heartbeat if the economy were better...I know it is affecting everyone in every country. Casa Tolteca was more than we could have asked for or dreamed of. We had 11 of us and we all had the best time ever... I left a long message in your guest book...I tend to ramble...but thank you again... it will be forever remembered as one of our most memorable vacations...Francini and Cornelius were the best and the food better than any restaurant...one morning many families of monkeys came flying through the villa on rooftops and railings...the guys caught 10 sailfish and 3 Dorado...we shared all the photos we took each evening on the big screen TV and as I mentioned in your book... "Our memories of Costa Rica will linger on long after our footprints in the sand are gone". Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.
