Whether it's your first adventure in Costa Rica or a return visit, we are looking forward to welcoming you to the natural beauty and World Class Comforts of Casa Tranquila. Chosen by Trip Advisor as Best Vacation Villa in Manuel Antonio every year since 2009, our goal is to surpass your every expectation. Astonishing views, luxury interiors, pristine pools, and exemplary concierge service set the tone for an unforgettable get-away in one of the most exotic and affordable locales in the world.

Unlike any other villa, Casa Tranquila is hosted and managed by her Owner, Donald Corvette.  From your first contact until his thank you note after your departure, you will be confident you made the right  choice for your vacation.  No agencies with formatted emails. No key boxes. No outsiders. Donald himself greets you at the gate, carries your bags inside, and even puts your groceries away. His personal pride in his 11-year creation invites you to be a member of his Casa Tranquila Family.

Casa Tranquila is offered as either a three or four suite home, depending upon your needs. You will see in our Gallery recently arrived furnishings direct from Ubud, Bali. She is a spacious, luxuriously appointed home, with prestige, air conditioned suites, two large, lavish living areas, two extensively equipped modern kitchens, and even a convenient computer space for those who just cannot leave work at home.  Her New Look offers a Private Casita, which can be conveniently added as your fourth sleeping suite – complete with its own full bath, dining deck and large-screen HDTV with Apple TV.  Expansive new windows and doors magnify your ocean views. When you have more than eight guests, a convertible bed in The Casita expands to enhance their comfort. 

Outdoor pools, decking and dining… all with amazing views.  The rich personal amenities provided allow you to fly with nothing but a carry-on.  Even if you choose never to leave Casa Tranquila, your vacation will be your best ever.  You will want for nothing. Whether you prefer to enjoy a peaceful and private experience while at Casa Tranquila or to take advantage of our hands-on planning services for experiencing a more exhilarating Costa Rica, your preference is our pleasure.

Beaches & Bluffs; Excursions & Excitement; Rest & Recreation… all at your fingertips.


Casa Tranquila promises to deliver all the comforts you expect in a luxury villa without diminishing the feeling you are visiting a new environment full of wonder. 


Manuel Antonio

Spectacular Pacific Views; playful monkey visits; sounds of crashing waves; exotic birds; comforting ocean breezes;  extraordinarily fresh seafood; aromas of tropical flowers.  Your senses will be overwhelmed.

Costa Rica is a once in a lifetime experience with a world of adventure you must enjoy. Nathan, your personal concierge, communicates with you prior to your arrival to have all your "fun stuff" reserved before you walk through Casa Tranquila's door.

"...the villa has amazing views, is wonderfully appointed, and truly is top-notch luxury. What you can't see in the photos, though, is the attention and care paid to you by Donald and Nathan during your stay. I'd not only highly recommend the villa, but also taking advantage of their concierge services..."                                                                                                                    Brian D.
