This chaming little one bed in one of the best locations in Manuel Antonio is hard to beat for value. It has a lovely jungle view with the Pacific in the background. A pool, A/C and minutes walk from the best restaurants in town.

The space

Located in Villas El Parque at the heart of Manuel Antonio, this self catering studio/one bedroom comfortably sleeps two guests.

Centrally located close to The National Park and the beaches. You will often see Squirrel, Capuchin and Howler monkeys, a wide array of tropical birds and if you're lucky a sloth or two.

The studio is arranged with a kitchen opening onto the dining/living area, the enclosed bedroom has a queen sized bed and shower room.

You have a lovely Ocean views and large sliding windows which open up to allow the breeze in.

Villas El Parque is a short walk from a great selection of restaurants, bars, convenience stores and banks and since you're on holiday they will deliver to you, except the bank of course. If the mood takes you, you are moments walk from Spa Hollis anda relaxing massage.

There are excellent bus and taxis services which take you in one direction to the National Park and beaches and in the other to Quepos and the Marina Val Pez, should you fancy a day on the water fishing some of the most exciting waters in the region, if not the world.

We stayed for 4 night at Tariq’s place. He is very attentive and available if you need anything. The apartment is clean, in a very good location, few minutes to Manuel Antonio Park. It would’ve been nice to have a balcony but there is many things to do in the neighbourhood and there is a nice pool on site.

Tariq's place was just what we needed for our relaxing get away. It is very centrally located next to amazing restaurants (try Agua Azul!), a bank, grocery store, as well as right next to the bus stop that will take you down to the beach in just a few minutes. Tariq was very helpful from the moment we arrived in Manuel Antonio. He picked us up from the Quepos Airport and gave us a quick tour of things to check out. All of his suggestions were a hit and we hope to stay here again sometime soon!

Tariq's place was an excellent place to explore the Manuel Antonio area. It was clean and comfortable and close to everything we wanted to see. Also, Tariq recommended a variety of different activities and made sure we heard of the good restaurants around. He answered our questions promptly and was very welcoming. I would recommend strongly Tariq's place to anyone who would like to visit this beautiful part of Costa Rica

We loved the location of this place! We had a great view out the large sliding windows, really felt like indoor/outdoor living. Plenty of space for 2 with a comfy bed and adequate kitchen. We cooked breakfast and found everything we needed. We could walk to plenty of bars and restaurants and there's a nearby beach that we enjoyed. Tariq is very welcoming and friendly and gave us some great recommendations! We thought it was a great value and were very happy with the whole experience.

This place is all what past guests say it is....and then some. We spent most of a week here, and it was truly a great stay. The location in Manuel Antonio is perfect, as you're near great (URL HIDDEN) if you don't want to cook, you'll still find something good....and also there's plenty of selection, so no worries. The unit itself is outfitted well, and it, too, won't disappoint. Tariq is the best of hosts; you can be sure that if you have questions or seek advise on things to see or do, he'll help direct you; just ask. We hope to return (URL HIDDEN) I guess that about says it all. Look no further.

This place is awesome! Within walking distance to excellent restaurants with great service and conveniently next to a few small markets for beer, snacks, toiletries and other essentials. The bus stop is very close and it is a short bus ride to the beach. Tariq was a great and helpful host. He recommended places to eat, visit, and great tour adventures. Highly recommend and would not hesitate to book again when visiting Manuel Antonio!

Overall, had a great stay. Very close to restaurants and such. Well priced for Manuel Antonio. Tariq was super responsive and gave some great suggestions. It is not really walkable to the beach, since MA is a big hill/cliff. You can walk to Playa Biesanz from the apartment or down to the main beach in ~25 mins, but both are on small/steep roads so taxi or bus may be better. Note that only the bedroom has AC. The living room has some open air vents and sliding doors that you can open for the breeze. The living room and bathroom have a big screen between them, so bathroom will be same temp as living room. Location is great. Next door to a basic convenience store (standard convenience store stuff, eggs, some basic fruits, no meats other than ones like salami). There is a larger grocery store ~10mins walk west from the apartment. Lots of restaurants within short walk, and a gym and small spa/yoga place next to the apartment. Go to Agua Azul upstairs for dinner - we went for a birthday dinner and it was so good we went back the next night. Emilio's was also very good, and two doors down from that. El Avion had a nice view, but poor/overpriced cocktails and food didn't look very good. Bus stop that goes east (down) to Manuel Antonio park or west into Quepos stops outside that convenience store. It was 310 colones so pretty cheap. Taxis were a rip off, and know they can charge that much since the road is very narrow with no sidewalk throughout all of Manuel Antonio. Wifi is spotty throughout all of MA, so make sure you don't have to do any heavy planning or other work.
