Fortunately, it is not! We are located on Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast and sheltered entirely by tropical storms and hurricanes un-like Mexico and the Carribean.
It can be, as we do offer many of the benefits of a resort-style, all-inclusive package, coupled with the privacy and quality of a private villa. We’re happy to pre-stock Villa Punto de Vista with beverages, mixers, snacks, and groceries, upon request and at cost. (Although unlike a resort, we never mark-up for pre-stocked items.)
So why do we work like this? Simple: Quality and flexibility.
Quality: The best, most memorable meals are made from the freshest, hand-selected and [usually] local ingredients that reflect your tastes. At Villa Punto de Vista, we don’t want to limit your options with prix fixe menus, and we believe that you deserve nothing short of the finest ingredients possible.
Flexibility: With so many adventures in Manuel Antonio, from sport fishing to canopy tours, it’s likely you’ll miss at least a few meals at the villa. And we won’t make you pay for something you don’t need.
All stays include luxury accommodation with daily gourmet breakfast, including champagne mimosas, locally harvested coffee, and fresh fruits and juice. Housekeeping keeps your rooms neat and tidy, and will launder your linens. A self-serve washing machine is available for personal use. Your stay also includes complimentary vacation planning (everything from transportation to tours) and full-time private staff, including your estate manager, pre-arrival concierge, butler/bartender, housekeeping, maintenance and 24-hour security.
While transportation to and from the villa is not included (our pre-arrival concierge can arrange that), your stay does include our 6-passenger Polaris Ranger buggy, chauffeured by our Estate Manager.
The cost of your extras varies per your personal preference and vacation style. Generally speaking, additional costs include: Flights to/from Costa Rica, transportation to/from the villa, grocery pre-stocking (we’re happy to stock the kitchen for you, at cost), tours & activities, restaurant or private chef services and optional staff gratuity.
Villa Punto de Vista usually books 12-18 months in advance, but rare last-minute opportunities, select dates, and longer stays may be eligible for a special reduced rate. Please contact us for more information.
Book early! Villa Punto de Vista is a popular venue for Manuel Antonio destination weddings, which are often planned months in advance. The villa is usually reserved for the next 12-18 months, so be sure to book early.
Yes, we are happy to help, book, at no extra cost, alternate luxury accommodations for overflow guests. We have partner villas (some within walking distance) and hand-selected hotels in all price ranges no more than minutes drive/walk from the villa.
*Transportation between Villa Punto de Vista and local villas and hotels is easy! Your guests can summon an inexpensive official red taxi within minutes from their hotel or villa.

Yes, Villa Punto de Vista is equipped with cable TV service showing many US channels and major sporting events.
Costa Rica uses the same 120V outlets that you’ll find in the U.S. Our global visitors will need adapters to plug in chargers, bathroom appliances, and other electronics. Alternately, we’ll be happy to purchase adapters for you in advance of arrival.
Villa Punto de Vista is not only kid-friendly, but children-welcoming! We love our younger guests, and even have some complimentary kiddie gear available, like pack-and-plays, high chairs, pool toys, board games, Sony PlayStation 4, etc.
Our Ice, Red, and Toucan suites are best suited to 3+ guests.
We’re sorry, but we have a no-pets policy at Villa Punto de Vista. This makes it easier to keep the villa in pristine condition and, more importantly, keeps our home comfortable for guests who suffer from allergies. Nevertheless, please let us know if you believe you have an exceptional case (e.g. service animals).
