Property description

Located on the beautiful Southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica and within the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, Casa Bella offers you the ideal secluded spot for exploring the area. It is just minutes away from the village of Manzanillo and from the beautiful pristine beach where you will find the best snorkeling on this Coast and enjoy the Caribbean culture.

Casa Bella is situated at the top of a hill in a 1-1/4 acre tropical garden and consists of two houses. The upper section of the villa is hexagon built on 22-foot columns with large screened windows all around and a terrace which offers a panoramic view of the forest and garden below.

It is just like being in a Tree House. You are at eye level with the tree tops and monkeys, sloths, toucans and other wildlife are almost within touching distance! It has a loft bedroom, a fully-equipped kitchen and bath and a spacious living room.

The lower section of the villa, attached to the upper section by a covered staircase, has 2 spacious bedrooms, full bath and a balcony. It also has screened windows and large mosquito nets surrounding the beds.

Manzanillo is such a beautiful area. You have great snorkeling, hiking in Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, Sea Kayaking, bird watching, dolphin tours, bike riding, horse back riding beach and jungle, animal rescue centres, beach relaxation, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, is not far from other towns for day visits in indigenous communities, waterfalls and national parks.

The town is a small fishing village and does not attract the tourist hype of Puerto Viejo 12.5km away. It is a real Afrocaribe village. You can also access all beaches between Manzanillo and Puerto Viejo with a day trip on bikes.

At Casa Bella you will experience the Natural Paradise of Manzanillo and the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge.
