The Shana Residences has perhaps one of the most tranquil and pristine settings in all of Manuel Antonio. Without doubt, this luxury condo has the best views of any 2 bedroom at the Ocean. This vacation rental is located on exclusive Quepos Point, The Shana Residences boasts breathtaking views of the Pacific ocean, coastline and distant Talamanca mountains. The surrounding rainforest is full of local fauna--from sloths lazing around in the canopy to blue morphos fluttering through the air like shards of sky. The balcony is the perfect place to to watch the sunset, and pop the cork on a cold Sauvignon Blanc.

Exceeds All Expectations!! - Nancy P.
This condo and its offerings exceeded every expectation from the minute we arrived! The pictures do not do it justice. The complex overlooks the pacific and it’s lush surrounding and is part of the Shana Hotel area. Condo guests have full access to the hotel amenities including the infinity pool, 24/7 security, parking and hotel concierge. We traveled as a family of five (2 parents and 3 twenty + year-olds) and had plenty of room for all! Besides the deck off each bedroom, the main living area has a larger deck to enjoy morning coffee or the evening sunset. All the furnishings are high-end; stainless steel, granite, travertine tile, wicker furniture, etc. The king beds were extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. There was also plenty of bath & beach towels! The condo has the best selection of kitchen items including glassware, utensils, paper products, etc. We rented a car and drove most nights for dinner, there’s also plenty of taxis. I personally would not walk the winding road at night. Manuel Antonio has fabulous restaurants encompassing all monetary levels. There is so much to do in the area; a week was not enough. Favorite tours – Vacation Buggy (rainforest/waterfall), Midworld (ziplining) and Manuel National Park were favorites. The condo is not beach front, but Biesanz beach is well worth the 10+ minute walk. We had too much stuff one day and found easy parking by the road gate. The beach is actually a cove which is secluded and your own piece of heaven. We enjoyed it on two different days and each time there were only 20 or so people there. It’s out of movie! The owners and condo managers were wonderful to deal with and were available and willing to answer questions and give advice on the area, tours and restaurants. We booked all our tours though Nicole (property manager/Nicole (property manager/concierge) who was a joy to work with!! She met us upon our arrive and stopped to say goodbye. The owner, David contacted us upon our arrival and return. Not sure what more you could - we would recommend to anyone! Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing.
Absolute paradise!!! - Jess & Trav
There are not enough incredible things I can say about David, the beautiful condo, his fantastic property management team, and the very unique town of Manuel antonio. From the time you arrive, you will not be disappointed. We were greeted with a fresh arrangement of local fruit and a printout of tips and pointers for all things not to be missed. Estella prepared a detailed itinerary and answered any questions we had in regards to restaurants, local beaches, excursions, and more. The condo is situated on a mountain with million dollar views and is in close proximity to a private beach.Inside, it is well-appointed with any amenity you could ever need (from wine openers to luxurious robes to beach gear-they have considered everything!). Manuel antonio is a very special place to say the least, it has something for everyone. From ziplining and aTV tours, to hiking in the National Forest and leisurely sunset cocktails-it truly has it all. I have traveled to many different places and countries and I would be remiss not to notate the receptive culture of the Ticos (people of Costa Rica). All who we came in contact with were equally warm and inviting. This is truly an exceptional place. We have been back to the states for a month and reminisce about it almost daily. We are already planning our return for next year!! Thank you David, for sharing a little piece of heaven with us, we are so glad we decided to visit!
Indulge Your Senses and Pamper Yourself! - Jerry Henry
While "a picture paints a thousand words" may be true, the photos on this site (while very helpful) cannot begin to describe the warm, luxurious and comfortable condo that awaits you! As accurate as the descriptions were, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the condo, the spaciousness and the careful attention to detail provided by the owners for their rental guests. Hospitality is reflected in every inch of this condo. David was very helpful in sending information before I began my week-long stay. However, upon opening the front door to the condo and seeing the incredible view, I stood speechless and in awe of the beauty. The setting overlooking the Pacific is at once breathtaking as it is calming. The view from any of the three balconies is mesmerizing -- I found myself drawn to it time and time again, and spent hours simpy relaxing on the balcony above the rainforest and beaches below. Every morning at sunrise, I was greeted by the lively sights and sounds of nature awakening: many species of birds, playful cappuchin monkeys, and the gutteral barks of howler monkeys. The handsome 2-bedroom unit met every expectation: extremely clean, fine furnishings and local Costa Rican art, extremely comfortable beds and linens, a fully-furnished kitchen (even plastic wine and margherita glasses that you can take poolside), a small library of guidebooks and reference materials on Costa Rica -- honestly, it was much more than I anticipated. Adjacent to a hotel/restaurant and sharing a wonderful infinity pool, this property is one to which I would return without question! Sun, sand, ocean and as much or as little as you would like to do awaits you at Manuel Antonio. Estella is so helpful in making recommendations and arrangements for any excursion or activity -- from guided tours in the National Park to dinner reservations at one of the amazingly delicious restaurants in the area (Arenas del Mar was one of my favorites and the Sunset Cruise from Puerto Quepos that includes snorkeling, lunch and dolphin watching is exceptional). My only regret is that I didn't stay TWO weeks rather than one. But given my pleasant experience on this trip, I know that I will be returning to this condo again and again. I recommend it highly -- you won't be disappointed in the least!
Condo Paradise - Luis R. Ruiz
With a view like a moving painting, luxury to the finest detail and the most special attention from Estela, the concierge, your stay at The Ocean #320 only has one disadvantage: you won't like your home the same when you return. The condo is fully equipped to let you have a vacation experience that lacks and lets you miss nothing from an actual home. The rooms in the house are all beautifully decorated and have all the commodities you can require including very comfortable beds to have the sleep you expect from a holiday. The living areas are also perfectly enjoyable, and breakfast on the balcony overlooking the sea and the occasional boat soaring across it, all framed behind the lovely trees of the forest that covers the Manuel Antonio hills, will completely redefine your concept of morning meals. All in all, this is absolutely the place to go. Kids and adults will both enjoy the pool and the proximity to the beach, only a small bus or car ride away, and everyone will have the time of their lives. Bottom line, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place cause it simply is Condo Paradise. Make a choice now and be a witness of it too. You won't regret it. Promise!
The best condo - Christine Lee
What a beautiful condo - well appointed furnishings, spacious and clean, convenient location, great pool and helpful onsite service. Estela welcomed us with a delicious fruit basket, rum cake and Costa Rican coffee and was always available to answer questions or provide assistance. We spent 8 wonderful days and enjoyed breakfast every morning on the patio watching the monkeys, birds and enjoying the ocean view. We would recommend this condo to anyone. We've rented condos all over the world and by far, this rental was the best.
