Many's house was definitely a highlight of our holiday in Costa Rica. The villa's are good, but the view is absolutely stunning! We really enjoyed the view and watched sunset over the pacific from our porch with a good wine. The pool and whirlpool are great, also for our little children. Toucans are all around the villa's and in the...

We just returned from an amazing 8 night stay at Many's House and we are definitely returning soon. The villa was large, clean and comfortable. The view from the large deck was amazing to say the least. We were up at 5.30 every morning just to watch the birds and listen to the sounds of the morning. We would have...

We stayed here for a few days in May 2012 as a side trip from Jaco. I researched the entire area for a week for accommodations for a couple, an adult child, and 2 young adult friends. We usually stay be the sea when we travel, but after seeing Manny's houses, we were sold on the mountain views. We needed...

One of three locations on our trip through Costa Rica, Many's House stood out as a unique, magical accommodation for our family. We stayed in the "Rustica" cabin for 4 nights in December and cannot say enough about the experience. The cabin was spotless and very spacious (larger than we needed), the views from our private deck were spectacular, and...

Our family traveled to Many's House last January and we created the most wonderful family memories. 10 months later, our kids ages 15, 13, and 10 keep asking to return. Many was an incredible host - even raiding his medicince cabinets when our son had an allergic reaction. The views were spectacular and we felt entirely "removed" though amenities such...

We have stayed at Many's House previously and it was a great experience. We stayed a week in the Eco-cabon this time and we really enjoyed it. It is the least expensive of the 4 cabins. It has 2 bedrooms, although we only needed one, fast internet, and amazing ocean views. The kitchen made it very convenient so we didn't...

We fell in love with Many's House. It truly is La Joya de Baellna! If you want to see toucans, this is the best place on Earth. The toucans fly back and forth across this magical valley all day long. They are mostly active in the morning and evening. At most, at one time we would see 10 toucans. There...

We spent 4 days in the "Villa Rustica". It is nicely equipped with everything needed to prepare nice meals. The place, which has an excellent view of Ballena Bay, is surrounded by beautiful gardens. The host, Many, always makes sure that all your requirements are met. It is important to point out that eventhough Many's House has only 4 villas,...

What makes Many's House so great is that not everyone can stay here--there are only four nicely equiped casitas and a lovely pool perched high above the Pacific with fantastic views of the ocean and jungle. Tucans, parrots and monkeys provide lots of background entertainment. Many is the perfect host--very knowledgeable of the area and there to see to your...
