Manuel Antonio villa description

Breathtaking view of the Rainforest Canopy, Ocean, Mountains, Beach and several river-mouths that line the beach stretching along the coast. We have a great view of the new Pez Vella Marina where you can see the boats coming and going daily.

Three kinds of Monkey, Parrots, Mot Mot birds and an occasional sloth, makes this villa a Costa Rican Paradise.

Casa Marlin has been designed for you perfect Costa Rica vacation experience. With cross ventilation and air conditioners in the bedrooms you will experience the Pacific Ocean, the mountains and jungle from every room. Look down into the new Pez Vela marina that has just opened.

You will be staying in Manuel Antonio’s most prestigious and secure area at the newest addition to an enclave of the most exclusive and popular villas in the area. Located at the end of the road, your vacation will be luxurious and private.

Casa Marlin has four equal private bedrooms each with its own bathroom. Generous balconies in the front and back of the bedrooms are set up to view the three species of monkeys that come to feast in the ancient tropical orchard that surrounds you.

The thrilling Guanacaste wood floating stairway leads up to the third floor rancho and a spectacular view of miles of jungle canopy, the marina and the north shore surf break. It is the perfect place to watch the sunset.

Walk out of the living room into the turquoise illusion edge pool where you can swim or sit on the deck and enjoy the view while listening to the sound of the waterfall.

Watch cable or movies on the large 42 inch flat screen TV. Clock radios in each room make it easy to get up early enough for that fishing trip. Wireless Internet is available thru out the house.

The woodwork and furniture of casa marlin are made of local hardwoods especially for the house by the talented woodworkers of our area.

A gourmet style kitchen is fully stocked with every thing you will need for cooking and dining. It has a granite counter top and hand made teak cabinets. The solid teak dining room table will seat twelve people with room at the bar for four more.

Full maid services will make your stay completely carefree.

Chef Service 180 per day. (Three meals) Or 150 for dinner only. Or you may opt to order your provisions in advance if you want to do some of your own cooking.

Our concierge can arrange all the details of your trip from the best tours, fishing trips, restaurants or chef services. We subscribe to emergency medical services so that any medical emergency you encounter can be promptly handled twenty four hours a day.

Relax on the verandas in the most comfortable rocking chairs in Costa Rica while watching the birds and monkeys.

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About: My son has lived in Quepos for 12 years working his own and other boats as a sport fishing captain. Married to a Costa Rican they have two beautiful sons. I came to Quepos to be with my grandchildren 7 years ago. He named his oldest son Marlin after the biggest sport fish so we named the House after both the fish and the grandson. We are from the Tidewater area of Virginia. I am a Studio Potter working with porcelain for the past thirty years. My father lived on the beachfront at Virginia Beach and was an avid fisherman. We have decorated the house with some of his nautical antiques. My entire family was involved in gardening, landscape architecture and the nursery business. I am an avid gardener. It is my great joy to finally finish Casa Marlin so that I can create the tropical garden I have been imagining for the past five years.

                          Why Manuel Antonio:
                          We are located at the end of the road that has several other extremely successful rental houses. Our Unique location not only gives us an incredible beach, mountain, marina view it also has the advantage of being completely isolated from neighbors making your stay private and secure. There is virtually no road noise or through traffic. The most common sounds are that of the monkeys, parrots and frogs.
