Quepos house description

Want the best value for your money? Happy Jacana is the best deal in Manuel Antonio for a 7 bedroom / 8 bath house. Massive 5,000 square feet, comfortably hosts groups up to 16 or more. The house is ideal with multiple entrances, and multiple levels (5 in total) with tons of balcony space (do Yoga by the pool).

                              Nestled inside a well maintained gated community and home to the Rain Drop Spa, Manuel Antonio Estates sits on the main road to world famous Manuel Antonio national park and its beaches. A true sanctuary when you're home, yet very easy access to everything Quepos and Manuel Antonio has to offer! From zip lining tours, massages, surfing (yes!), fishing, golf, hiking, gym, horseback riding, sight seeing, snorkeling/diving, boating, jet skis, swimming, wildlife viewing, tennis, biking, yoga, shopping, white water rafting and more!

                              It seems you'll never run out of new foods to experience, from some of our favorite restaurants in Quepos (with healthy options too!) to the long row of restaurants and hotels in Manuel Antonio. Plus if you are taking advantage of our all-inclusive paradise service option which includes your very own gourmet chef and ONSITE massage therapist, you can take your daily experience of Manuel Antonio to a whole new level! And when the day is done you can retire to your castle, sip your favorite drink by the pool (clothing optional) and watch the city light up from below.

                              Whether you just want to give your family or friends an experience of a lifetime or you're looking for an amazing place to stay before you continue on your journey through Costa Rica, you won't want to miss an opportunity to stay at Villa: Happy Jacana and if your budget allows, go for the FULL experience with chef and massage therapy, you'll be glad you did.

                              ABOUT THE LOCATION

                              Costa Rica is often referred to as the gem of central america, and Manuel Antonio, the gem of Costa Rica. The property is uniquely situated at the start of Manuel Antonio , just after Quepos, so you get the best of both worlds. 5 minutes from Quepos airport, a 15 min. drive to Dominical, 45 minutes away from world class waves in Hermosa and the buzz of Jaco Beach. Plus there's many places just a short drive away if you want to actively explore the are awhile you're here.

                              About: My name is James Rick, and although I've traveled the world many times over, Costa Rica has been a favorite of mine ever since I first came in 2008. I've lived in Jaco Beach and I'm a big fan of surfing, so I was very happy to find a locals 'secret spot' in Manuel Antonio to compliment my love for this house and sanctuary just a couple minutes away. If you have any hesitation at all about staying here, feel free to ask any questions you might have. My goal when you book the Happy Jacana is to make sure you have the best / happiest experience possible from the time you arrive to the time you leave. Feel free to ask questions or share any feedback you might have before your stay, during your stay and especially afterwards!

                              Why Quepos:
                              Whether you just want to give your family or friends an experience of a lifetime or you're looking for an amazing place to stay before you continue on your journey through Costa Rica, you won't want to miss an opportunity to stay at Villa: Happy Jacana and if your budget allows, go for the FULL experience with chef and massage therapy, you'll be glad you did.
