Manuel Antonio villa description

This is the most private villa in Manuel Antonio with ocean and jungle view, visiting monkeys, 3 pools, air-conditioning in the rooms, wifi, cable tv, 4 rooms, 3 staff. Paradise resort in the heart of Manuel Antonio where Ocean, Jungle and Western comfort meet. This villa is set in 2.2 private acres of lush tropical rain forest which surrounds the villa completely, giving total privacy for you and your guests.



The only way in and out the villa is a 250-feet long jungle bridge that connects the house with the rest of civilization. Under the huge 5500-square-feet roof you find a big open-air living space and bedrooms (with airco and locks). The open-air living space has a kitchen, living room, bar, dining area, tv room and terraces. From here you have an unobstructed view of nature: no windows, no doors, no walls.

The Jungle Villa is completely surrounded by real, all-natural tropical rain forest. There are no windows or walls between the jungle and the villa's living area. All bedrooms have walls, air-conditioning, locks and screen windows which can be opened for fresh oxygen and stop insects from coming in. Bedrooms are protected against direct sunlight by the surrounding trees which keeps rooms cool without the use of air-conditioning.

60% of our guests are repeat guests who keep coming back because of the villa's relaxed atmosphere where guests have a lot of freedom. The hidden location, privacy, 4000 square feet common living area, the visiting animals and the unobstructed view of the jungle and ocean are appealing to most of our guests. But not everyone appreciates this unique property and would be best served in a different style of accommodation. Our bedrooms have walls, doors and air conditioning however our living area is totally open without any walls and doors, but with roof.

For those that love and respect nature and want a truly unique vacation rental, then this beautiful location of the Jungle Villa is absolutely incomparable with other vacation rental properties in Manuel Antonio.


The Jungle Villa has 2 units (4 rooms in total) which are rented separately and sleeps max. 17 guests.
Guests of each unit have full access to the huge living area, kitchen, 3 pools, pool area, tv corner and 5 terraces.
Total seating capacity of living area, terraces, kitchen bar, dining area: 40 seats. Pool area: ca. 20 seats.
Our prices are quoted per unit.

Our 2 rental units have each the same price.
1. Upper-level Master Bedroom: 1 bedroom with 4 beds, 1 bathroom.
Maximum sleeping capacity: 6 persons. Total size: 580 square feet
This room has 1 kingsize bed, 1 double bed and 2 single beds
This room is on the same floor as the entrance, kitchen, TV corner and all terraces.

2. Lower-level floor: 3 bedrooms with 6 beds, 3 bathrooms
Maximum sleeping capacity: 11 persons. Total size: 1050 square feet
This floor has 2 kingsize beds, 2 double beds and 1 bunk bed (bottom: double bed, top: single bed)
This floor is on the same level as our lowest and biggest pool.

Of all villas in Manuel Antonio this beautiful 4-bedroom/ 4 bath Jungle Villa is the only villa which is one with Mother Nature and fully embedded in the surrounding rain forest.
Nestled under the huge surrounding trees, the open air living spaces are made of tropical hardwood and the trees around the 3 pools are part of the walking trails of the monkeys who regularly visit the villa. If you want to watch our wildlife thru the windows of an air conditioned room, this villa is not the place for you.
----
The jungle villa is located in the tropical part of Costa Rica and wherever you look you will see it. To blend the villa with its surroundings, walls, rooms, doors and floors are decorated in natural colors: green and brown.

This is the only villa in Manuel Antonio with 2 full-time staff members in daytime to maintain the villa and pool area and to keep it clean. If you love pure nature, this villa is the perfect place for you. You will never live and sleep closer to Mother Nature than in the great Jungle Villa.

                      There are few places on Earth where Ocean, Jungle and Western civilization come as close together as in this unique Jungle Villa.

                      It is located on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, 25 minutes by plane from San Jose, 4 km south of Quepos, 3 km from Manuel Antonio National Park .

                      Manuel Antonio's beautiful beaches, famous around the World for many romantic movie scenes and Jurassic Park, are just minutes from the villa.

                      The most famous inhabitants of the Manuel Antonio National Park, which was declared a national park in 1972, are the endangered squirrel monkeys and white faced capuchin monkeys who often cross the park boundaries to visit the villa, mostly during 'monkey hour' from 3pm to 6pm.

                      The villa is located very privately and not visible from any neigboring properties. It has three pools on three different levels with two waterfalls.

                      This is also a great place for private parties and weddings of up to 120 people.

                      Manuel Antonio's greatest parties are held here.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Let the Dutch press speak about me: Latjes is an European entrepeneur who lived most of his life in The Netherlands. He never worked for a boss, he is an independent thinker, and all his enterprises were first-of-a-kind. In 1999 Latjes realizes he can maintain and operate his popular travel website from any location on planet Earth which has modern communication lines. After considering many places in the World's Sunbelts, Latjes decides to move to one of the rare locations where the Ocean, the Jungle and Western Civilization meet each other: the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica in Central America

                      Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
                      The moment me and my family saw this beautiful villa we fell in love with it and bought it within a few weeks. At this great location, you have ocean view plus jungle view and the villa is also surrounded by huge trees and lush vegetation of the tropical rainforest. Many animals live around the villa. Most of the times you don't see them but you always hear they are there. Once inside the villa you feel far away from the rest of the World. And still you are steps away from the heart of Manuel Antonio.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      This unique villa is mostly rented to persons who come to Costa Rica because of the country's beautiful nature and the many animal types. If you are afraid a monkey takes a piece of banana from your plate (very rare) this is not your place. If you see this as a rare photo opportunity, you are very welcome in the great Jungle Villa. Also, when you are just looking for a place to sleep, please contact any hotel in the area. We love to host guests who know to appreciate the unique, relaxed lifestyle in one of the greatest homes along the Pacific Ocean.
