Villa Vigia

Villa Vigia, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, sits on a hill high above the Pacific with sweeping views of the crescent beaches of nearby Manuel Antonio National Park. It is a pleasantly secluded setting yet convenient to the restaurants and attractions of the area.

You will awake to the sounds of tropical birds and enjoy the daily parade of wildlife about the property. Capuchin, titi and congo monkeys often traipse through the adjacent jungle and put on a delightful show for house guests. At the end of the day enjoy the sunset from the lookout tower for which Villa Vigia is named. After dark enjoy the jasmine and orchid scented night air.

At Villa Vigia you will be delighted by an atmosphere blending traditional colonial architecture with contemporary furnishings. Interiors are serene and spacious with beautiful stone, tile and wood floors. Tropical flower arrangements are provided throughout the house to enhance your visit. The house boasts six terraces suitably furnished for relaxing or al fresco dining and the infinity pool features an expansive patio.

Upon entering the house one is immediately struck by the dramatic curved marble staircase leading from the domed rotunda entry to the three large well-appointed bedroom suites.

Each bedroom suite has its individual character and has a private bathroom and balcony or terrace. The two master suites, located on the upper floor, each have spectacular ocean views, a king bed and a sitting area with a sofa bed. The family suite, also upstairs, has two full size beds and one set of bunk beds and features jungle views. The downstairs guest apartment, located on the lower level and separate from the main house, has two twin beds that convert to a king, plus a kitchenette, living area and veranda with garden views. This villa has many options for sleeping arrangements!

On the ground floor, the living room is comfortable and inviting with an entertainment center. The dining room seats up to twelve and overlooks the pool terrace with its pergola.

The large kitchen is a cook’s dream with a professional stove and other top quality appliances.

The tiled infinity pool is surrounded by a terrace furnished with chaise lounges and comfortable reading chairs. There is a table for informal dining shaded from the tropical sun by a handcrafted pergola. A changing room with shower is convenient to the pool.

This thoughtfully designed villa is the perfect luxury vacation getaway for the discerning guests seeking privacy, serenity and security. An on site concierge is available to help you with travel arrangements and answer all your questions about the property and the many attractions and restaurants in and around Manuel Antonio.

    The house is lovely and the setting is the rainforest. How wonderful! Our stay was made much better by the service we received from our concierge and the rental company who were most helpful. We had asked for a Christmas Tree and Patricia produced a large beautiful tree which was so unexpected. The house was ready and fully stocked with the items we requested so when we arrived from the airport we felt like we were home. The swimming pool was the perfect temperature and at night the place is magical. It's a great house for a family getaway, a romantic interlude or a group of friends on a vacation.

    My husband and my three daughters (ages 12,10 and 7) and our family friends thought Villa Vigia was the ideal place to spend a week in Manuel Antonio. Having lived in Costa Rica over 20 years ago, I carefully researched places so as to make my return a special experience for my family, and Villa Vigia did not disappoint us. We had an unforgettable experience swimming in the gorgeous infinite pool and watching the squirrel monkeys at play, cooking in the fabulous open kitchen, zip lining through the rainforest with Safari Adventures, surfing at Manuel Antonio Beach, touring the park with Bernie (awesome guide available through Henry at front gate). With Willie at the front gate and Flaca the kind and attentive housekeeper, we felt that we were staying in a very safe home. You will love the views of Manuel Antonio. My 7 year old called it her castle and never even wanted to leave! Couldn't agree more-

    We just visited Villa Vigia with another family (5 kids total). What a fabulous trip! The house and property are gorgeous, and we didn't want to leave. The master bedrooms are incredibly spacious. The kids room has two double beds, and a bunk bed. The lower bunk is a queen bed, so there is a lot of room for the kids to spread out. All the rooms have beautiful views and balconies. The pool is perfectly situated, and we could watch for birds and monkeys while we were in it. A few other notes -- the kitchen is well equipped with plenty of plates, glassware, silverware, etc. for a large party, there is a washer/dryer available.

    The concierge arranged a chef to come cook for us. We had appetizers, cocktails(adults) and smoothies(kids) out on the poolside patio. The large dining room table accommodated us all for a delicious sit down dinner. It was very relaxing, especially since we didn't have to clean up. The house is in a great location for activities such as canyoneering, mangrove kayaking, a tour of the Manuel Antonio park, and surfing. The concierge helped us arrange the activities. Transportation to/from and usually lunch was provided with the activities.

    Villa Vigia is a special property that harmonizes with its lush surroundings.

    Our family had a most amazing stay at Villa Vigia. The home was absolutely beautiful - with gorgeous views of the rain forest, the ocean and Costa Rica's stunning beaches. Although we spent hours enjoying the pool and relaxing on the patio, this home was also the perfect location to seek out other adventures. These included a Mangrove Tour, deep sea fishing, days bodysurfing at the beaches, hikes in Manuel Antonio, and an adventure tour that included zip lining, repelling and rope swings. Jonathan graciously set up anything we were interested in exploring, had great recommendations for dining, and was responsive to the many varied interests of our family of 11 (which ranged from grandparents to teenagers). All the services providers - from concierge services to housekeeping to in-home chef services - were hospitable, accommodating and efficient. We loved staying in the beautiful villa, which had many amenities and every comfort. The bedrooms all were spacious, well appointed and had vast views of Manuel Antonio. The Kitchen and dining areas were very well equipped and we could comfortably entertain 15 for Christmas Eve dinner. The entire home was bright, airy and welcoming - perfect for hanging out, swimming, birdwatching and being entertained by our many monkey neighbors in the surrounding forest. However, the surrounding area of Manuel Antonio was equally gorgeous and the many things to explore there couldn't be neglected, despite the comforts of the Villa. We would have much preferred to stay longer than a week, but we will just have to return to Costa Rica and Villa Vigia soon. Everything about our stay exceeding our expectations!
