Manuel Antonio house description

This Santa Fe-style house is situated on a hilltop surrounded by nearly an acre of tropical gardens. There are spectacular views of the Talamanca Coastal Range and 6000 foot Mount San Geranimo as well as the evening sunset views over the coast. 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. Ten foot ceiling and the openness allow the sea breezes to cool the house naturally day and night. There are screens on all the windows and doors, as well as overhead fans in all the living areas.

The hillside pool is situated beneath towering jungle trees where White-faced or Titi Monkeys are often swinging through the branches. Some of the best bird and iguana watching can be had right from our decks. There is 24 hour security with a wonderful Costa Rican couple living in a small house at the properties entrance. Besides maintenance and housekeeping they offer additional maid service, washing, cooking, and baby-sitting. The house is very private and quiet, unlike so many rental houses and hotels crammed along the busy main road. Yet you can walk to the main road in five 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.

The owners lived in the area many years before constructing their ideal home for living comfortably in the tropics. Most of the art work is by the owners and their friends and the gardens are a testimony to their love of plants. Our vacation renters have loved the house as much as we do when we visit. It is the perfect getaway for families or couples, right in the heart of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica's favorite destination.
