Manuel Antonio chateau / country house description

'Casa de Cielo' or the 'house from heaven' as the original Costa Rican owners named it is a private refuge where one can truly feel that he or she is surrounded by rainforest and not people. Even though it is five minutes from the beach, due to the beautiful jungle surroundings the pool is completely private and unable to be seen by anyone that is not staying there. The birds and perfume from jungle flowers awaken you in the morning. A cool breeze reminds you that you are truly off the beaten path.

The house is made from natural Costa Rican wood, built lovingly as a vacation home by 'Ticos' from another era. The lanai has an ocean view and one can sit in a hammock and watch the monkeys play or the macaws and hummingbirds fly by. The kitchen and bathroom have all modern amenities.

Amigos del Rio, an outfitter is at the bottom of the hill for those who want to go rafting, kayaking, zip-lining, etc.

'Abuela' (grandmother in Spanish) lives at the bottom of the hill and keeps an eye on all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren who own homes on the small road leading up to Casa de Cielo. She has a small 'soda' where she sells the most delicious fresh fish, rice and beans that you have ever tasted. This is truly Costa Rica-not a slapped together American condo.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We are a family of four that has been in love with Costa Rica collectively or separately for forty years. We were thrilled to have a piece of the rainforest we could share with like minded people.

                          Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
                          We chose to buy a vacation home in Costa Rica because of its deep commitment to preserving the environment and national parks. The Costa Ricans are friendly, peaceful people, and as the t-shirts say NO Army Since 1948!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                          Starting around 6:00 a.m. one is at eye level with the parrots who visit the treetops. The hummingbirds arrive around 7:00. Monkeys and kinkajous make their rounds later in the day. Some of 'Grandmas' chickens show up around noon. The beaches are five minutes away as well as the famous Manuel Antonio Park. Great restaurants with fresh seafood or more typical rice and beans are close as well as clubs and bars for those who like to party. For those with a flare for adventure the Amigos del Rio is at the bottom of the hill. They can provide you with rafting, kayaking and river tours This is a truly Costa Rican neighborhood and the locals will welcome you and watch out for you. In addition there is a five star resort right above us by a separate entrance. The couches provide a comfortable recluse for a good book. This is the perfect place to 'unplug' for a break from all the media pollution-or of course if quiet is not your thing we have t.v., cable, and internet access.
