About Christen

I moved to Costa Rica full time after years of traveling/ studying through the summers. I found my home in Manuel Antonio for years. It's the only place in the world I have traveled to that I have to catch my breath after seeing the view again for the first time! It's such a special place from the view, the park, beaches, and of course the monkeys!

I have been fortunate throughout the years to stay at the Casa Bella Vista and proud to represent the owner. I have a passion for my friends, family and guests to have the best possible experience in Costa Rica. I make it a mission to provide a care-free vacation with all details completely handled!

Christen purchased this estate in 1999

Why Christen chose Manuel Antonio

This property is perfect for a family or few couples. The spaces are very nice and open, terraces off every bedroom! The pool is perfect and just an amazing place to relax or entertain. It is in walking distance to many restaurants/bars and down to the beach! Location, location!

What makes this estate unique

Casa Bella Vista truly is the home to Manuel Antonio's post-card view of the National Park. The infinity pool and roof-top terrace is a spectacular spot to take it all in from the view to nature around you. There is an abundance of animals that love the house too and stick pretty close. Casa Bella Vista is private yet a close minutes walk to the nearby restaurant and bars of Manuel Antonio. It is also in walking distance down to the beach.

Incredible property !!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the Casa Bella Vista really don't do it justice. This has to be the nicest home in all of Manuel Antonio with the most incredible view !!! The open air concept is very comfortable and the air conditioned bedrooms make sleeping great. We visited Manuel Antonio Park at the end of our trip and were actually disappointed because we saw more wildlife at the Villa than we did at the park ! At the Villa we saw three types of monkeys, a sloth, an iguana, a toucan bird and a wild chicken! Wow ! There were ten in our group and we were all very comfortable. The house staff were all very helpful and very nice. I would highly recommend Casa Bella Vista and I can't imagine our group would want to stay anywhere else !!

Can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six just spent a week at Casa Bella Vista and I'll confirm the comments of the 5 star reviewers so won't reiterate them here. This home is everything said about it. I can't imagine a nicer home in Manuel Antonio and so close to restaurants, Manuel Antonio Park, etc.

Sani, the home manager, took care of all requested needs and gave us some great philosophy around the pool as well! Take advantage of his recommendations for smooth sailing.

Do yourself a favor and rent this beautiful home (and if you drive your own car there then clarify with Sani the entrance driveway just below Mango Moon hotel as it is unlabeled).

It was amazing for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 10 including 6 adults ages 30s to 60s and 4 children ages 3-7. The staff at the house, Dixi and Javier were very welcoming, nice, and approachable. We felt a home and very comfortable. All the bedrooms are a comfortable size. The master suite is amazing and has a wonderful view. The views and nature surrounding you every day was breath taking, we saw monkeys every day, tucans, macaws, sloths, iguanas, and countless other birds and animals on the property! It was amazing and the kids loved it. The manuel antonio park was very nice and very close to the house and the beaches are close as well as groceries, shops, restaurants. The beaches are clean and safe. You could say that the beach is walking distance, but it's a rocky zig zag road down a steep hill. We took taxis or had transportation arranged for us by Sani, the concierge. Sani was great, he is very nice and helpful and arrange all our tours activities. He was very accessible and knows the area very well. We also took advantage of the chef service with Lili. Lili's food was delicious and she has the kindest, sweetest personality. She was very accommodating to our group and even catered to the little ones. We will definitely hope come back soon. Thanks again for everything we had a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation.

Best vacation trip we've ever had...lets do it again!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 and it was the most amazing time. The house is amazing and very your own private mini hotel! Chris, Javier, Sani, Lillian and Dixie were just perfect. Like all the review says, you REALLY do get to see monkeys (White-Face and Titti's) and all kinds of fabulous plants, flowers and more all from the property. Walking distance to grocery store, shops, eateries and more. Cant say enough about Casa Bella Vista. My kids/wife are begging to go back to Casa Bella in 2017 so i guess we will be booking again soon Chrisi!!!

The Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family vacation ever!! We were celebrating our 40th anniversary with our children and wanted to have a very special place to celebrate....and we found it!! When we arrived we could not believe it was all real. The breathtaking views were spectacular!! The home, the privacy, and the staff was just amazing. Every aspect of booking this vacation was flawless! Sani was absolutely priceless!!! He arranged pick up and drop off at the airport. Greeted us when we arrived, took us grocery shopping and site seeing the next day, and gave us restaurant and adventure tips. And talked me into going river rafting...with much hesitation on my part. HaHa! Sani arranged the tour, came with us, and we had the time of our life! When we finished the tour the crew had taken some amazing pictures. Javier, the onsite care taker was wonderful also, arranged all of our cabs, entertained us with the monkeys, toucans, sloths, and iguanas. The location was great as we were able to walk to restaurants and grocery store, and the beach. We had the wonderful time and look forward to coming back someday. Thank you for providing this beautiful home and service!

Casa Bella Vista has one of the most breath taking views in the world and the house is gorgeous! Every day we were visited by monkeys, toucans, iguanas and sloths. The monkeys were so fun and kept us entertained for hours. The staff at Casa Bella Vista is exceptional. From Javier taking care of the house and finding sloths, porcupines and monkeys for us and Dixie keeping the house spotless to Sani accompanying us on a white water rafting trip we were well taken care of. We also had the best chef Lily. Her food was 5 stars and we had her 3 nights. Next time we will have her the entire time! Truly we could have just stayed at the house and had the best vacation ever, but we did get out and explore. We had three families and all had the best time ever. We will definitely be coming back and staying at Casa Bella Vista in the near future.
