Manuel Antonio estate description

Welcome to Bali Village, where the rain forest meets the beach in beautiful Manuel Antonio! The Bali House is a 5 bedroom 7 bath Balinese Villa nestled into the rain forest just steps away from the beach. This exotic tropical villa is one of four rental homes on a 45-acre rainforest parcel bordering one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Our location is perfect for guests who love the beach and want to maximize their beach time. Most rental homes in Manuel Antonio are perched high in the hills and their guests must drive or walk down steep hills to reach public beach access areas. At the Bali House, you are at the beach. You simply walk down our garden path and you are at private section of the beach in 1 minute! Come and enjoy our exotic hideaway in the most desirable location that Manuel Antonio has to offer - in the rain forest, yet on the beach.

Bali Village is comprised of a cluster of exclusive homes that represent the ONLY community residence directly on Playa Espadilla (the main beach in Manuel Antonio). Guests may rent the 5 bedroom house, a 4 bedroom house or a 3 bedroom guest house. Some guests of course chose to rent two or more homes at one time (see our other listings).


About The Bali House: The Bali House was designed by Balinese architect Ketut Arthana. Arthana is internationally recognized for his insightful work in designing luxury residences, tropical resorts and spas throughout Asia, Hawaii, North America and Europe including the elegant Puri Woolandari hotel in Bali, one of the Small Leading Hotels of the World. The villa was initially designed and framed in Bali from Indonesian ironwood. It was disassembled and shipped to Costa Rica along with all the furnishings and finishes and it was carefully reconstructed by a team of Balinese craftsmen.

Villa Staff: The Bali House is staffed by a manager/concierge, housekeeping, gardener, daily pool service, and maintenance staff. Your Concierge will be happy to arrange transportation from the International Airport to the house, reserve tours, hire a private chef, a masseuse, or anything else you need during your stay.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: The Bali house is owned and operated by local Costa Ricans with a little help from a lucky Gringo from Philadelphia. While Odillie is the grande dame who sets the style and handles the staff, Peter is the property manager who handles the bookings. Odillie and Peter were married in April 2013. They intend to build more such beautiful homes elsewhere on the property. Akira Reserve has 45 acres, more than enough for some special homes, should you be interested in joining them!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
                      The owner's chose Manuel Antonio because of it's natural beauty and for the National Park. There are many amenities and adventure tours available in this area of Costa Rica. Odillie loves the monkeys and Peter loves the restaurants.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      Odillie and Peter fell in love at the Bali house so they're a bit biased, but in truth, they find the density of the jungle and the proximity of the ocean waves to be utter magic. Whether eating mangos off the patio deck, walking up the driveway to Raphael's Terrazas for a spectacular tuna salad or simply strolling down the beach with a refreshing coconut drink, Odillie and Peter find there is always something to do that is pleasant, healthy and attractive.
