We stayed in Casa Cascada for almost a week and absolutely loved it. It was a little big for our family of three, but it was really nice to have the extra space and the private pool. The house is really well appointed, with 2 master bedrooms with king beds (the mattresses are really firm, but not uncomfortable), an enormous living room, a great kitchen with pretty much everything you need (the knives are dull, but that's not a huge deal), and an enormous wrap around porch with MONKEYS! (See the pictures) The house is on a really steep hillside, and looks out into a jungle view and every evening monkeys would swing through the trees and occasionally visit us on the patio. The house is also totally and completely private and felt like a bit of an oasis. The only downside is that the pool is under the house at the end of the driveway, but that's easily overlooked. And, it actually made it a little safer for our 3-year-old, since it wasn't right outside the door. The house is a short, ten-minute drive to the GORGEOUS beaches at Manuel Antonio (get there early to catch free street parking) and a five-minute drive to restaurants and shops in Quepos. Dorit made the reservation process really easy and also arranged for a fabulous surfing lesson. The Manuel Antonio Estates staff were really wonderful and unobtrusive. We loved our stay at Manuel Antonio Estates and Casa Cascada and can't wait to come back. ¡Pura Vida Costa Rica!

A friend and I stayed at this place for about 2 weeks. The place was exactly as described and the photos were right on. It was the perfect place for the two of us - 2 big bedrooms with our own bathroom. The place was very clean and comfortable. The maid service was outstanding and if we needed anything we got it in what seemed like within minutes (seriously, the people here are super responsive!!!). The staff here is absolutely amazing including the maids, Elias the concierge; Dorit, who works in the office and helped us with something almost every day; Papilla, the handyman was unbelievable!! I really can't say enough good things about the staff!!
We had toucans on our balcony and almost every night had a monkey show on the balcony.
We walked into the small town of Quepos every day and took the bus (60 cents) into Manuel Antonio several times. All very easy and safe!
There is also a spa on site which is fantastic!!
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is interested in being in a beautiful and relaxing setting with easy access to many activities in Costa Rica!
