Property description

The Wood Chalet, a unique single family home constructed of teak, is strategically located between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, in an upscale, gated community with 24/7 security, where each house is hidden in the flora, and privately situated to view the fauna. This idyllic location is simply the best of beach and jungle. Ideal for a naturalist or honeymoon couple. Spacious, open living area with full kitchen and huge upscale bathroom for pampering yourself. The chalet is managed onsite by our team with convenient check-in, assistance, and concierge service.

View the monkeys and the sloth that inhabit the rain forest canopy surrounding the chalet from it's roomy covered porch or patio areas. Pamper yourself at the Raindrop Spa, hike the nature trails, or simply relax and surround yourself with the sounds and sights as the tropical rain forest comes alive around you.


The Chalet is located in the natural habitat of species such as the squirrel monkey, white faced Capuchin monkey, three-toed sloth, and numerous bird species. For human contact, walk into the quaint village of Quepos, a center of sport fishing and enjoy the quaint shops and restaurants of an authentic Costa Rican town.

Minutes from the most visited national park in Costa Rica - Manuel Antonio National Park. Gorgeous beaches that are outlined by mangrove and coconut trees for shade. Arts, crafts, restaurants right on the beach!
