Amazing views and tucked away location
The house is outstanding and the pictures don't really do justice to the amazing views and tucked away location. Our children spent hours by the pool in-between the numerous nearby activities...
Wonderful Stay, Wonderful Time !
Wonderful stay at Casa Dolce Vita. Everything as described and pictured. This is a truly unique home with fantastic ocean (and monkey) views...
A group of ten of us stayed at Casa Dolce Vita in Manuel Antonio for our Spring Break vacation. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay here! First off...
Living with the monkeys !
Celebrating family birthdays, Casa Dolce Vita was a perfect Villa for us. Not having a car, the location made the beach, restaurants, bars, and shops accessible...
Casa Dolce Vita- Amazing!
This was a beautiful place. Nothing can beat the view! The monkeys come right up to the house. The kitchen and living space is open so be sure not to leave food out or the monkeys will come take it!
First, what a fabulous home! The Casa Dolce Vita is perfect! I did not see, nor could I imagine a nicer spot to stay! Second, the Costa Rican people are so nice and so helpful! Third the jungle is such an amazing place-so incredibly alive and active! I can only add that the monkeys stole our hearts-they seemed to know how much we loved them and responded by allowing us to be very close to them-they fed out of our hands! We leave with our hearts full of the spirit of Costa Rica and we hope to return one day!"
We couldnt imagine a better stay or better hosts
We stayed 2 weeks in Il Nido and absolutely loved everything about it. The "apartment" is clean and has everything one needs including hair drier and straightener on European voltage...
