Jaco house description

This secluded private villa on the coast of the Pacific Ocean (2 Minutes Directly Across from the Beach) is 2 stories, offering privacy between levels, spectacular ocean views, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen downstairs with granite countertops and bar, kitchenette upstairs with granite countertop, refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, microwave and breakfast table, living room, custom swimming pool and full laundry room. Located on over 3/4 of an acre, with a private driveway and surrounded by a lush rainforest with no neighboring homes close enough to disturb your privacy, you'll enjoy the spacious patio and 'botanical gardens' in peace and privacy. You'll thrill in the native trees and plants (pick your own bananas when in season) and wildlife that visit regularly, including toucans, macaws, parrots, colorful iguanas (harmless) and, occasionally, monkeys. A custom pool (December 2006) affords a luxury retreat from the day's activities.


You can choose from the many adventures that await you, including the thrill of a canopy tour or zip line, ATV adventures into the rainforest with waterfalls, rivers and wildlife, world class fishing, beaches - including some of the best surfing available in the world, snorkeling, hiking, golf, horseback riding (beach or rainforest), motorcycle rental, and, of course, the best places to eat!

A must on your schedule is a visit to Quepos and the World Famous Manuel Antonio National Park, less than 45 minutes from Casa De Mariposas. You don't have to choose between the rainforest and the beach because the park offers both. Packed with the most unbelievable animals, birds and flora, you'll walk the well maintained trails and come face to face with several species of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, toucans, parrots, macaws and dozens of other animal life, all in their unrestricted and natural habitat. Walk to any of the four white sand beaches and explore the tide pools or relax on the beach when not enjoying the blue ocean waters (85 degrees).

Don't be surprised if a family of friendly squirrel monkeys with a baby or two come and visit while you lay on the beach! For the coffee lover, don't forget on the way back to stop at Cafe Milagro located on the front street as you enter Quepos for steaming hot fresh coffee beans made the old fashion way. (Beware! Once you have Cafe Milagro coffee you will be hooked for life.) We are happy to assist you in planning your itinerary and booking your adventures. Our goal is for you to create lasting memories of your visit to Costa Rica.

Thank you for visiting Casa De Mariposas!

Maid service available on request.
