“Very nice house, private, comfortable and a good value”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We are a family of 5, me my wife and three children ages 16, 13, and 9. We stayed at Casa Alta in June 2015. It is a very nice and well kept property. The property manager and housekeeper were very friendly and very accommodating. We had more than enough space inside the house and all the balconies and deck space was a nice bonus, far more than you'd get at a hotel or condo. My kids especially but all us enjoyed having the private pool. The location of the property was a little bit far for walking to and from most of the popular restaurants and the beach areas. However, the supermarket, bus stop and taxi stand was only about 100 yards away from the house. Once we learned the bus schedule it was very easy to get wherever we wanted to go fairly quick and without a lot of hastle. All in this property was a very good fit for my family and a good fit for our budget. Our stay at Casa Alta was a very positive and good experience and I would recommend Casa Alta as a good property for other families.

“Great location.”

Stayed here with another couple last week of February and first week of March. We booked this condo after searching for one in this area. The pictures, reviews and Description drew us in. We booked with no problem. Just wish there was a better way of paying in Canadian funds. The van booked through Natalia was as advertised great driver, comfortable and even stopped for us to buy groceries. Our first impression of the condo was not great. There is no air conditioning on the main floor, so the heat was over bearing. If renting this condo I would suggest closing all the doors and windows putting on the air conditioning in the downstairs bedroom and get the fan that is supplied going. That is what made it cool.
The master bedroom upstairs is big airy and has a great bathroom. The shower runs hot and cold and the pressure is not that good. If you don't like millipedes or ants in your bedroom then this is not the place for you. The other (master) is in a wing by itself and has a queen size bed, no closet. The bathroom is not ensuite but close enough to be. The bathroom is like being in a fishbowl with no actual windows just screens on the windows. Just happened to be sitting at the bus stop and looked up at the condo could see right into the bathroom. The outside space is great, with the pool and deck area being second to none. That is what made our stay great. The bbq worked great and made for some excellent meals.
The location is probably the best you could look for in the area. Close to everything. The store is a 2 minute walk away, an even bigger one 5 minutes away. The restaurants in the area are good, we didn't have any issues. The local bus from Quepos to Manuel Antonio (315 c) ran on time and was the best way to travel.
The cleaner was around and did a good job. We did our own laundry due to one of our party being allergic to most detergents.
There are some negatives but the positives take over. The house needs a little bit of TLC, new toaster etc. the pictures on trip advisor are not exactly what they actually are. They look like they were taken a few years ago.
The area also has lots of stray animals that let you know they are around. The barking at night if you slept in the second master was sometimes a bit much. We had a cat that came around.
I would recommend this place to friends if some small changes were made. I have stayed in condos In a lot of places and found this one to be your average holiday house in a great area.

As a home away from home we couldn't have asked for any better!! Was in Manuel Antonio for a good friends wedding and staying at Casa Alta made it a much more comfortable, relaxing stay. Olivier and his property manager Natalia were great in setting up this accommodation and could not have asked for better service! The cleaning staff was in the same just as great and accomodating, as on Tuesday and Thursday we received a clean, fresh house with washed clothes on Thursday (very nice not to have to take a lot of clothes home to the States all sandy and smelling)!! This place is super convenient to many local eateries and super markets as well as many local attractions (beaches, shops, adventure tours, etc.). Could not have asked for a better stay!!!! Thanks Casa Alta for providing us a great home away from home!

“Our Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Casa Alta with our 3 children and their spouses. We were there for 10 days and had an amazing stay. The home was perfect for a family with grown children. We never felt crowded in this house. The grounds were immaculate and the cleaning lady kept the house looking fresh and nice. The location was perfect. Just a few minute walk to the local market where you can buy fresh fruit and groceries needed. The bus, which runs every 15 minutes took minutes to get to the main beach. All restaurants were within walking distance. We walked to every dinner we had. The House Manager, Natalia was absolutely amazing. She truly made our trip stress free and was more than accommodating. We loved it all!

“Exceeded our high expectations”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

We rented Casa Alta for 9 days and had high expectations based on the photos and description of the house. It truly exceeded our expectations. Casa Alta is spacious, very comfortably furnished and, best of all in the wonderful weather here, has furnished decks off of the three main bedrooms and a great poolside deck area. The house is walking distance from the local restaurants and stores but is high enough up on the hill to get very nice breezes. The local restaurants were quite good but the poolside area was so inviting that several nights we bought locally caught fish and grilled poolside (along with some fruity blender drinks). Natalia and Flora were very pleasant and helpful. On a return to the area, we would definitely want to rent Casa Alta again.
