About Alina Pekarsky

We are a family of 5 from Palm Coast Florida, who fell in love with this home the minute we walked in through the front door of this amazing place. We came to stay for vacation and found out that the home was available to purchase. The decision was instant, this home has all we ever dreamed of: amazing location, gorgeous views, one of a kind beach and serenity we never experienced before . We traveled the world as a family and there was never a one place we felt so good about and wanted to have to come back to for many years to come. Since we cannot always be there to enjoy, we are happy to share it with other families.

Alina Pekarsky purchased this house in 2015

Why Alina Pekarsky chose Puntarenas

This home is a perfect family destination. It will easily accommodate 2-4 families with kids. The location is close to everything and the most important walking distance to an amazing private beach, which is located in a quiet cove with white sand , protected from winds and any traffic. All you will see is cows walking around or laying and relaxing by the water. Your kids will enjoy collecting shells or snorkeling by cliffs going in to the ocean with lots of marine life to explore. This home home has so much to do and explore without ever leaving . There is a beautiful garden with avocado and mango trees you can pick and enjoy when in season. Great refreshing pool, you can sip wine and spend evenings watching sunset over Pacific ocean and you will feel like you are in haven. This is a one of a kind home in Manuel Antonio.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to a private beach, walking distance to Ronnys Place Restaurant, a popular place to have romantic meals and drinks. this property has it all. You can watch a gorgeous sunset over the Pacific ocean from the pool deck or any living area of the house. The views are amazing. One must see and experience to believe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a great place. Centrally located in the Manuel Antonio/Quepos area. Felt very private and safe, yet close to everything. A million dollar view.. Really, I think this was the best view in all of MA. The host exceeded my expectations providing us with a phone and daily maid service. The dive company recommended to us in Uvita was amazing. Couldn't have been a better experience. Thank you!!

What a place…what a view!

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay in mid-March 2017 at this beautiful ocean view home was a vacation we will not forget. The view from the main deck Casa Playa Vista was incredible! The ocean view with its gorgeous sunsets and the abundant, ever-changing wildlife right in front of you was more than we could have asked for. What a paradise for bird lovers, we were treated to toucans, tanagers, large macaws, families of parrots (to name a few) flying right in front of us mornings and evenings. Needless to say the TV was never touched. We heard howler monkeys, enjoyed watching the iguanas hanging around and even saw the ranchers on horseback round up some cattle.

The beach is in a beautiful small rocky cove just a short walk down the path from the house. It is nice quiet place to spend an afternoon and play in the waves. Locals go to it too but mainly it is empty and care should be taken for swimming there as it is isolated. Recommend wearing water shoes if you go in.

The house is setup so comfortably; we had three couples there and didn’t need to use all the bedrooms. The main living space is large, luxurious, wide open and kitchen was well equipped. The maid service was perfect for this house; she will even do your clothes if you leave them for her. We spent many evenings in the infinity pool relaxing after daily adventures into Manual Antonio and Quepos. Our concierge Hazel was awesome, she helped setup our transportation, tours and rental car, we recommend using her as she is well connected in the area with the local businesses.

Also, one of our favorite things was walking from the house up to Ronny’s Place a restaurant at the crest of the hill that Casa Playa Vista sits upon. The food and drink at Ronny’s is fantastic, other tourists come for the sunset view and the amazing pina coladas. Since it is same view you enjoy at the house, we went after sunset for dinner, took our flashlights and did the short hike up there a couple of evenings when it was less busy.

We had no issues major with the house, the amount of hot water available could be improved but that may have been due to showering after the maid had washed linens for us.

Casa Playa Vista we miss you!

Great place for a stay near Manuel Antonio

  • 5 of 5

The house was fabulous! We were two families of five and it worked perfectly. The master bedroom was over the top with its own beautiful deck with great outdoor furniture. My suggestion would be to have some of that really comfy furniture on the main deck. The only downside for us is we had 2 sets of parents and the 2nd bedroom with its own bath really was very average compared to the rest of the rooms. We had a problem with the water but it was rectified very quickly. The location was great for our short visit to Manuel Antonio. They also recommended Chef Christopher who did an outstanding job but was quite pricey. I would definitely recommend him for at least one breakfast and dinner. House was very clean every day and pool was great fun for the kids.

Great Stay / Great view

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property propped just a short walk from the ocean. The house is fantastic! Its large, open concept design accommodated the 8 adults in our party very well. Amenities are true to the property description, except the view was even better than defined! The cleaning staff did a stellar job, as did Hazel, our concierge. She was very quick to respond to our wishes, and questions, and her recommendations were spot-on for tours, restaurants, etc. We were thrilled with the birds, butterflies and iguanas, but particularly with the daily sightings of between 3 and 6 scarlet macaws, numerous green parrots, flycatchers and tanagers. Loved it!!

The view never gets old!

  • 5 of 5

That view NEVER gets old. High ceilings on each level and abundance of space in most every room and hallways. If you are a bird watcher, this place will be your dream come true. Attentive and knowledgeable concierge service and the house cleaner is an angel and extremely honest. After insisting that she do our laundry, she brought me $30 that I had forgotten was in my pocket. The house location is right in between Quepos and Manuel Antonio so it's super easy to get to either. You'll feel like a movie star living the dream in this house!

WOW ... WOW and WOW

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 glorious days here and loved every second of it.

Pros:

PERFECT location

Ronnie's Place is walking distance (great food, drinks and an amazing staff)

The Views are actually better than the pictures if you can believe it

Mater Bedroom and Bathroom are so large it would be an apartment in New York City

Within a 10-15 minute drive you have 15 Restaurants, the National Park, perfect and uncrowded beaches, the Marina and 4 places to get groceries.

Plenty of room for two families (which we had)

And of course the pool is the best part, we used it every single day.

Hazel the Concierge set up all our tours and knows the best guides

6 Day a week house keeping is a pretty plus.

Cons

Really NONE .... !!!

Except don't wear socks when you go down the stairs, they are a bit slick....yes I fell.

Excellent luxury home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation in this modern showpiece that was extremely comfortable for two families that totaled 8 together. The house looked even better in person. I think all the comments below that are positive are right on target regarding the house, concierge, chef and maid service.

For people traveling from far away, Hazel was expecting us to call from San Jose and in touch with us as we traveled from the San Jose airport. We met nearby at the real estate office and she drove us over the house to let us in, etc in the late evening. She was extremely helpful daily and booked the most wonderful Mangrove and River Rafting tours. (do both...awesome)

We absolutely loved Chef Christopher's food. I highly recommend using him for a big family breakfast every morning...wonderful way to start the day and wake up to coffee, tropical fruit, pancakes, eggs, and his divine rice and beans. He is a delightful person and so passionate about CR and his cooking. His dinner food was also superb. We were ready for very active trips every day. The housekeeper also did a wonderful job making everything beautiful and clean every day. Washer/dryer was really helpful.

Ditto on the critters but it is a jungle after all. The house is a very short drive from local restaurants and attractions. I loved how we could just walk five minutes to Ronny's and get picked up for daily activities.

I love to swim laps and the pool was actually bigger than it looked. We have traveled a lot and consider it one of our best trips ever. Wonderful experience!
