Property description

Casa Mono Coco is a distinctive two story A-frame Teak and Stucco House nestled among other cabinas in a tranquil jungle setting one mile South of Quepos and two miles North of Costa Rica's world famous Manuel Antonio National Park. The kitchen is fully furnished for eating in although the area abounds with many restaurants and catering is available for special needs.

The upstairs bedroom is reached by a wrought iron spiral staircase leading to the upstairs. Casa Mono Coco is air-conditioned for your comfort and has many glass doors through which the jungle view is maintained sans insects. To the rear a new patio and veranda has just been constructed for outdoor enjoyment. The jungle patio has become the bottom floor of an upstairs addition where there is presently now a huge teak and almond wood veranda that is reached through sliding glass doors upstairs or a small ladder downstairs. From this veranda one has a unique view of the rainforest. On the screened downstairs patio you have the use of two twin beds and find yourself dining in nature. Out the back door is the planned expansion for a garden terrace and access to a washer and dryer shared with neighbors.

Monkeys live in the treetops and sometimes are on the roof or are watching you swim from over the pool area and sloths slowly climb the trees about the gardens searching out their favorite food leaves. On the grounds you will find Coco Palms and other trees with edible fruit ripe for the blender, as well as ferns, bromeliads and orchids. When it rains the area abounds with the sounds of Costa Rica's famed tree frogs. The large green ones can then be seen swimming about the children's pool and the tiny Green and Black Poison Dart Frogs who live on the leaves and branches of the garden plants come out of hiding. At night male fireflies search the area for their female counterparts who are actually the 'glow-worms' on the ground flashing signals to the males flying about. The garden area abounds with a variety of native wildlife such as Capuchin Monkeys, Congo Monkeys, Black Iguanas sunning in unexpected places, Two and Three Toed Sloths, and enormously mysterious butterflies where the male and the female are entirely unalike. Swimming at night in Casa Mono Coco's pool yields a star-studded sky unlike that known in North America. A day trip to the Naranjo river at Jardin Pochote just upstream of the Londres Bridge is take a refreshing swim complimented by homemade sweets from Ronulfo's Tienda. Or you might have a more substantial meal outdoors of Bar-BQ ribs with yucca washed down with local brews from Cokie's Casa Casuelda that will tickle your taste buds. Or, try local roasted pig and fresh Costa Rican beer from Brisas Del Nara Restaurant. On a clear night with a rented constellation finder, view a variety of never been seen constellations and see the full moon from a very different perspective. Activities in the area of Casa Mono Coco are astonishingly multifaceted: snorkeling, surfing, fishing, cayaking, bungee jumping, wildlife viewing & photography, Spanish Language Schools, TEFL Training, Massage & Yoga, Sun Bathing & shelling. Quepos has three gyms for a more organized approach to exercise and a weekly old-fashioned market including delicious hand-churned butter and home-made pies and cakes. For deep sea fishing, our new Quepos Marina is an excellent choice. Casa Mono Coco es un distintivo de dos pisos-Un marco de madera de teca y casa de estuco ubicado entre otras cabinas en un entorno de tranquilidad y la selva una milla al sur de Quepos y dos millas al norte del mundo Costa Rica es famoso Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio. La cocina está completamente equipada para comer en la zona, aunque abunda en muchos restaurantes y catering para necesidades especiales.

El dormitorio se accede por una escalera de hierro forjado de caracol que conduce al piso de arriba. Casa Mono Coco dispone de aire acondicionado para su comodidad y tiene muchas puertas de cristal a través del cual la opinión de la selva se mantiene insectos sans. En la parte trasera un nuevo patio y terraza acaba de ser construido para el disfrute al aire libre. El patio se ha convertido en la selva la planta baja de una planta superior, donde además existe en la actualidad ya un amplio y terraza de teca de almendra de madera que se alcanza a través de puertas correderas de cristal de arriba abajo o de una pequeña escalera. Desde esta terraza se tiene una vista única de la selva.

Los monos viven en las copas de los árboles y, a veces están en el techo o está viendo usted nada del otro lado del área de la piscina y perezosos subir lentamente en los árboles cercanos a los jardines en busca de sus hojas de comida favorita. En los terrenos se encuentran cocoteros y otros árboles con frutos comestibles maduros para la licuadora, helechos, bromelias y orquídeas. Cuando llueve, la zona está llena de los sonidos de las ranas arbóreas famosa de Costa Rica. Los verdes grandes, entonces se puede ver nadando a la piscina de los niños y el pequeño Verde y Negro ranas venenosas que viven en las hojas y ramas de las plantas de jardín salir de su escondite. En la noche las luciérnagas macho buscar en el área de sus contrapartes femeninas, que son en realidad las 'luciérnagas' sobre el terreno las señales intermitentes a los machos vuelan alrededor. La zona ajardinada está llena de una variedad de fauna nativa como capuchinos, monos Congo, iguanas tomando el sol Negro en lugares inesperados, perezosos de dos y tres dedos, y misteriosa enormemente mariposas donde el macho y la hembra son totalmente disímiles. Natación en la noche de los rendimientos de la piscina Casa Mono Coco un cielo lleno de estrellas a diferencia de la que se conoce en América del Norte. Un viaje al río Pochote en el Jardin de un refrescante baño complementa con las costillas de la Casa Casuelda después será un deleite para sus papilas gustativas con local de cerdos asados y fresca cerveza de Costa Rica.
