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.
