Property description

The house is a large, indigenous style home, hand crafted of the finest hardwoods. Our tropical garden setting is just 300 meters from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the beach/town of Manzanillo. Each suite is furnished with a king size bed where you can sleep in the comfort of luxury linens and stay cool ceiling fan style. The adjoining private baths are complete with hot water and high pressure showers. Outside your bedroom door awaits a private balcony where you can enjoy conversation or lie in the hammock for an afternoon siesta.

Eat in or dine out? Choose to cook a delicious meal in your own fully equipped kitchen, grill fresh meats and seafood on our large, roof covered outdoor grill, or eat out at one of the nearby restaurants. Sitting areas in the front of the house are a great place to delight in nature and wildlife. We share our garden with sloths, monkeys, morpho butterflies, and toucans, to name a few.

The house can be rented as a whole or you can rent just one floor depending on your party's size and needs. If you decide to rent just one floor, there is a private entrance for each. Parties of 2 can rent the whole house at a discounted rate to ensure privacy.

The 2nd floor of the house is fully screened and the 1st floor bedrooms and bath are screened. The 1st floor kitchen and living areas are open air to catch a cool breeze and enhance wildlife viewing. We do have floor to ceiling mosquito netting curtains that can be pulled closed at dawn and dusk or as desired.

While we feel a car isn't necessary and we provide 4 bikes to ride to the beach or local destinations, if you have young children or people in your party who are unable to walk aproximately a quarter mile, you may wish to have a car while staying at our home. Public transport is reliable and inexpensive as well and there are many transport methods to reach our home.

Coming to Costa Rica is a very exciting experience because of the natural beauty and the fact that there is still plentiful wildlife to see. People are amazed by the grand scale of the trees, the many species of birds and butterflies, the lush tropical flowers and
local fruits, the variety of beaches, plus seeing monkeys and sloths. On the Caribbean coast we enjoy all that plus reggae music and diverse cultures living in harmony. We think you will be delighted if you choose this amazing destination for your Costa Rica vacation!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: World traveler who fell in love with Costa Rica while living with a family and studying Spanish many years ago. I enjoyed learning about this peaceful country with a high literacy rate, good health care, education, and no army or history of wars. Of course living in the northern US contributed to the decision to find a tropical escape from our cold snowy winters!

Why the Owner Chose Manzanillo:
My partner Victor and I looked for homes in Puerto Viejo and couldn't find anything to meet all our wishes so we decided to take a drive to a little beach town I had visited a few years before and we saw a land for sale sign on the way into Manzanillo and decided to stop. We fell in love with the beauty of the land and sighting a tree full of toucans seemed like a sign! It was then that we came up with the idea of designing and building our own home that had the best of both jungle and beach locations.
