Manuel Antonio bungalow description

This house is located in Bungalows Las Palmas, a group of 16 A-frame houses situated on two and one-half acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, located off the main road which connects Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

Although you are far enough away from the main road not to hear it, you are only a three minute walk away from the bus stop on the main road. The local bus costs about 40 cents US and it takes you to the beach and the famous Manuel Antonio National Park, or into the town of Puerto Quepos. If you are driving, there is off street parking. We are about 7 minutes from town and about 10 minutes from the beach.

We lived in this house for ten years, and we know it very well. Inside, the house is shaded enough to be cool during the day and at night. Ceiling fans in all rooms [except the bathroom], plus tropical breezes that blow through the house, ensure a comfortable stay. At night, you can hear the sounds of the tropical rainforest or, if you are lucky, the tropical rain on the roof. . Sleeping here is an unimaginable pleasure.

The Las Palmas community and our manager focus on the serenity of the place. A lot of our guests study Spanish or go visit the beach, the park, the mangroves, or go out on ocean cruises during the day, and relax by the pool in the afternoon.

If it’s peace and tranquility in a jungle setting that you’re after, this is the place.
