Manuel Antonio house description

Brand new for June-Aug 2014!! The Family Jungle House now has a local chef with fantastic food and great deals!! $30 for breakfast for up to 12 people and $100 for dinner for up to 12 people!! Exclusive, only for the Family Jungle House and these prices include food cost! Roxana does not cook anywhere else and you will NOT find this deal anywhere else in Manuel Antonio. There are some restrictions: service is only Mon-Fri, only certain meals are prepared, the food is all local Costa Rican cuisine, and the meals are only served at certain times. There are no subsitutions and only one main course may be selected! Only here at the Family Jungle House!! I dare you to find another deal this good in Manuel Antonio!
This open air style house is situated on a hilltop surrounded by over an acre of tropical gardens and peaceful forest. There are spectacular views of the Talamanca Coastal Range and 6000 foot Mount San Geranimo.
This gorgeous home has two Master Suites for two families traveling together! This is a 4 bedroom/3.5 bath home which has an second living room which can be converted into a 5th bedroom.
Arriving to the Family Jungle House you will find some delicious local, Costa Rican fruit available for immediate consumption, or wait until the next day and have Roxana, the maid, cut it all up for you! We now also provide 250g of Coffee for all guests staying Dec - Aug so that you can arrive and immediately enjoy a cup of delicious, hot Costa Rican coffee!
Keep in touch with your family with the Costa Rican CEL phone we provide at no additional cost! Just buy prepaid minutes on the cel phone and feel confident about leaving the house knowing you can tact those who stayed behind at any time!!
There are covered terraces surrounding most of the upper level and the bedrooms at pool level. The house can be opened up completely to these terraces allowing for a tropical out of doors living experience. Monkeys pass by in the trees outside our bedrooms most days and an occasional sloth has crawled across our property. Come and hang-out by the pool - we have huge decks and an even larger pool!

The hillside pool is situated beneath towering jungle trees where White-faced or Titi Monkeys are often swinging through the branches. There is fantastic bird, butterfly, and iguana watching right from our decks. There is 24 hour security in this gated, secure community. The house is very private and quiet, unlike so many rental houses and hotels crammed along the busy main road and with giant walls as your next door neighbor. You can walk to the main road in three minutes where there are buses and restaurants. By car you are only five minutes from the National Park and some of the worlds most beautiful beaches or equal distant from the entertaining town of Quepos. There are generous parking and storage areas.

For your pleasure and comfort, the Family Jungle House offers the following amenities: WIFI, Phone, air conditioning, and there are three flat screen TVs and a DVD player. We have a well outfitted full kitchen and main floor washer and dryer and the maid will do your laundry. Bed linens and towels are provided.

Outdoors we have a teak wood jungle gym for kids, BBQ grill, and fantastic pool complete with its own water slide. After an exciting day in the tropics, the pool and terrace make for a relaxing evening.

We offer housekeeping every other day, laundry service by the maid when she comes and we can arrange for a private chef and babysitting for an additional fee.

                          Manuel Antonio beach or Playa Espadilla - was just rated as the Best Beach in Latin America this past April 2013 and Costa Rica is the happiest country on the planet according to various surveys! Come see what all the fuss is about! Don't want to go to the beach, then maybe try a ziplining tour, or some deep sea fishing, or raft down one of our awesome white-water rivers. Or just hang out at one Manuel Antonio's fantastic Happy Hour bars!

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About: I moved to Manuel Antonio in Aug of 2004 because I simply fell in love with the delightful Costa Rican people and the convergence of powerful elements all meeting in one place - the mighty Pacific Ocean, the strong sun, the wildness of the jungle, the tropical animals and foods, the strong winds and rains . . . We lived there with our two girls until April of 2012 when we moved back to Florida - and we now long for the days when we get to go and visit Manuel Antonio ourselves. We hope you love Costa Rica as much as we do!

                          Why Manuel Antonio:
                          We hope you find the peace and joy and harmony we tried to instill in this house and the surrounding gardens. We love entertaining guests - always have. We wanted a comfortable house that would be practical and fun for families. I know from experience that can be difficult to achieve.The beach, the ocean, the waves, the mountains, the sunsets, the clean air, the nice people - why would you not want to visit here?

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This house is wonderful for families! Kids have outside and the pool, and the biggest kids have plenty of space for themselves too! Right in the middle of Manuel Antonio to where access to the beaches is a five-minute drive and Quepos is a 4-minute drive, but removed from all the noise and crazy drivers. True peace in paradise!
