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 Manuel Antonio

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!!

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Have rented homes and stayed in hotels in Manuel Antonio several times but this was my favorite vacation. The house is beautiful and the concierge was very helpful and attentive to our questions. The view was even better than the photographs. Group of parrots serenaded us every morning. Very peaceful. A true retreat.

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.

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 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!!
