Villa Grande is under new ownership and management as of March 2015. Bob and Lori, who you may have seen on HGTV's House Hunters International (January 2015), are your hosts. The couple ditched their corporate jobs in 2014 and moved with their two young girls and four dogs from California to Manuel Antonio for the beauty and slower pace of life. They have quickly integrated into the community and are ready to help you do the same in this immense villa that is being upgraded, only 10 minutes from their family home. Bob and Lori have children and dogs and like to have fun, so they will know where to direct you for the best experiences in Manuel Antonio, no matter the makeup of your party. And because you will be hosted by the owners directly, the service you experience is assured to be exceptional - they want you to talk about it and to come back!
As your personal concierges, prior to your arrival through email and/or telephone, they will tailor all your wishes: transportation, restaurant reservations, tour and excursion bookings. Once you are here, they are available 24 hours a day to implement your plan. And if your plan is “to have no plan”, they are happy simply to direct you to the blender and let you relax by Villa Grande’s vast pool or on the enormous fourth-floor sundeck.
Almost a kilometer off the main road through a unique native community, you immediately know you are in for a true Costa Rica Experience. When the tower of Villa Grande appears on the right, you are certain you made the right choice for your family and friends. There are no neighbors for you to worry about. There are no neighbors who have to worry about you. There are no noise concerns: made or received. Villa Grande is ideally private, private...private.
