This magnificent estate overlooking Playa Espadilla (the main beach at Manuel Antonio) is built in a setting of jungle trees and palms. The expansive 11,000 square foot, fully air-conditioned villa sleeps up to 24 guests with 8 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms and has a unique floor plan that embodies Costa Rican elegance. This villa takes full advantage of outdoor lifestyle living and breathtaking ocean views from every room while also surrounded by a tropical jungle that attracts three types of monkeys, sloths, and toucans among other wildlife.

The tropical contemporary inspired design provides an expansive top floor social area that includes an infinity edge swimming pool, kitchen, living room and event area. The great open terrace offers 180-degree jungle to ocean views, poolside BBQ grill, bar area, and a sun deck for sun worshipers. This spacious outdoor area, large enough for any big family or event of your choice, makes this top floor terrace perfect for destination weddings, retreats and any other event, with the Pacific Ocean as your backdrop.

Beaches  This wonderful villa is close to three stunning beaches. The first beach is a short 15-minute walk (20 minutes back up the hill), through the lush tropical jungle to the famous Manuel Antonio main beach known as Playa Espadilla recognized as one of the top rated beaches in the world. The second beach is Playa Biesanz, a slightly longer walk with a romantic, picturesque setting with tiny gentle waves that are perfect for toddlers and small kids. There is also a great beach for kayaking and snorkeling. Vista Hermosa is the only villa with a special relationship with Arenas Del Mar (a neighboring beachfront 5-star resort) in which you can utilize their beach with an attractive 20% discount on all food and beverages.  They will also pick you up at the villa.

Your Personal Staff


Susan Concierge

Your stay at Vista Hermosa includes the services of your personal 24 hour, on-call Concierge and Vacation Coordinator. After a childhood in cold, snowy New England, and young adulthood in Foggy San Francisco, Susan finally found home, here in Manuel Antonio. The combination of perfect weather, abundant wildlife, and a bathwater warm ocean proved impossible to resist. Add to that the kindness of the Costa Ricans, and the opportunity to go out dancing most nights of the week, Susan had found her paradise. With more than 25 years in this small town, she has watched the tourism industry grow from the ground up and has seen many changes over the years. She is able to personalize an itinerary to suit any group’s needs and expectations, based on personal experience. Susan loves the chance to meet new and interesting people as they pass through, and share her own piece of paradise with them.


Javier Private Chef

Vista Hermosa provides your own private chef to prepare up to 2 meals per day (food and beverage costs are separate). No one needs to shop, cook or clean as Chef Javier and his wife, Karina, do it all while saving you money as well by purchasing the freshest ingredients from local vendors – butchers and fishermen, where typically only restaurants shop. Saturday mornings is the day that they go to our farmer's market and select the best vegetables, fruit and high quality produce.
