Manuel Antonio villa description

Casa Añoro is one of the newest luxury homes in Manuel Antonio. Casa Añoro rests on one of the highest points in town in an exclusive community of multi-million dollar homes.

Añoro is a unique word with no direct translation. It is pronounced 'ahn-your-o' and in Spanish refers to deep desire for something missing in your heart.

Casa Añoro was designed by Michael Cunningham who has owned homes and managed dozens of properties in Manuel Antonio for many years, including the award winning CasaTolteca. His new home, Casa Añoro, will become his permanent home in May next year. This is the only chance you have to see Casa Añoro before it is taken off the rental market and becomes the owners personal home.

Because this will be his permanent home, Casa Añoro is filled with high end details. To preserve these high end touches, we do have a minimum age of 15 for any guest in the home.

Indoor / Outdoor Living:
Open the entire 20 foot wall of windows separating the indoor great room with the outdoor terrazza to give you almost 1000 square feet of great-room living area, completely covered by beautiful slabs of exotic coral stone flooring. Take two steps down to the pool area for even more lounging space.

Of course, the entire home does have air-conditioning, but you will probably never need it since the home was designed to capture the breezes and sweep them through the house.

Gourmet Kitchen:
The owners love to eat, drink, and entertain and have actually attended culinary school. The kitchen is equipped to please any chef. The 13 feet of counter space contains Bosch, Kitchen Aid, and Decor appliances. In addition, there is a 9 foot island to prepare and serve food. Of course, the wine refrigerator is available for your use.

Limited Stairs:
Manuel Antonio is a very hilly town forcing virtually every home in town to have many stairs. However, Casa Añoro has all the essentials on one floor. Park your car and walk in the front door, the master bedroom, kitchen, living area, and outdoor terrazza are all on one floor making it handicap accessible. There are only two steps down to the pool level.

Ultimate Location:
Casa Añoro is located at the very end of a private road, overlooking the famous Gaia reserve. This means no cars, traffic, noise, or even other people will ever go past the home. You are in complete privacy surrounded by rain forest, our gardens, and acres of private nature reserve... yet you are just 2.5 minutes from the main road where you will find dozens of restaurants and small shops.

Huge panoramic ocean views stretch across the horizon allowing you to have perfect ocean sunsets every night, any day of the year.

Unique Pool:
With the corner or our infinity edge pool facing straight west up the coast line, you can daydream as you watch the surf breaking on miles and miles of shoreline. The large pool also includes a sitting area at the far edge where you can relax and enjoy the views while having a cool drink. Even the tiles in the pool are unique... made from imported light blue Italian glass with gold veins to catch the light.

After your stay with us, we know you will understand the meaning of 'Añoro' and your heart will always desire to return to Costa Rica and Casa Añoro.

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About: After year's of traveling through Asia and Europe, Costa Rica was my first travel through the Americas. I quickly fell in love with the people and the incredible beauty of Manuel Antonio. I purchased my first home in Manuel Antonio in 2006... CasaToltea. After extensive renovations, I'm proud that I have made the award winning CasaTolteca the most rented home in town... unfortunately, that means I rarely got to visit. So a few years later, I purchased this property to build my retirement home.

                  Why Manuel Antonio:
                  I now own several properties in town. I know virtually every house and lot in town. When this lot became available, I had to make it my home. It is truly unique... at the end of a private community, I own the property below it, the property above it, and everything in front of it is a private reserve. Nobody will every walk or drive past this house. No buildings will ever be built anywhere near this property. The privacy and unobstructed views of the rain-forest and panoramic ocean views just can't be found anywhere else in town.
