This newly remodeled home has all the amenities to make your trip delightful, stress-free, exotic, and comfortable, while hosting a very tropical, open, bright design that will surely erase all winter blues! Jungle, ocean, sunsets, monkeys, butterflies, mapaches, iguanas - and virtually no neighbors!


This house has plenty of indoor space and plenty of outdoor space as well, both covered and open-air deck s. There is a roofed outdoor area above the pool deck that measures 600sq.ft. and the pool and pool-deck roughly measure 800 sq. ft. Hop in the pool, get some sun, feel better about life and then relax on one of our lounge chairs or sit back in the shade of our covered deck. See the monkeys go by while losing yourself into the deep green/blue ocean of the quiet/peaceful/gorgeous Bisanz Bay. Relax, sit back, unwind, de-stress and enjoy one of the magnificent ocean views on the planet according to the Ottawa Citizen, which calls the Barba Roja Restaurant (100 meters from the Barba Roja House) 'One of the Top 5 places in the world to watch water.' We are here to help make your vacation stress-free! Ask us about a private chef to dine in, tours and activities in the area, transportation to and from San Jose or other parts of Costa Rica.

Centrally located next to Tulemar Gardens and the Barba Roja Restaurant, everything you will need for your stay is within walking distance: International grocer - 5 minute walk, 8 of the area's top restaurants are within a 5 minute walk, the top four bars on Manuel Antonio are with a 3 minute walk. And the absolute best part, while this house is located close to all of these locals, there is virtually no noise of any sort due to jungle on four sides of the house. Even the beach is only 12 minute-downhill walk (the uphill is NOT 12 minutes).

This house is centrally located at the halfway point between the beaches of Manuel Antonio and the town of Quepos. This house is only 130 meters off of the main road, yet is nestled into the jungles of Costa Rica so that all you hear are the sounds of nature. This recently remodeled home is fully furnished and extremely comfortable, and filled with top of the line appliances, as well as teak wood furniture and ceilings, plus a brand new pool and loft to make the house more livable. The pool and outdoor deck and shower were built in Sept of 2011.

There are 2 full bedrooms and a loft. In the largest bedroom, there are 2 queen-size beds, a full-size bed in the master bedroom and two twin beds in the loft. The bathrooms are reasonably large and comfortable.

The beaches of Manuel Antonio are a 3 minute drive or a 12 minute downhill walk. there is an international grocer just a 5 minute walk away, and there are activities and tours of all kinds and excitement levels that will complete your jungle adventure.

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About: I moved to Manuel Antonio in Aug of 2004 because I simply fell in love with the delightful Costa Rican people and the convergence of powerful elements all meeting in one place - the mighty Pacific Ocean, the strong sun, the wildness of the jungle, the tropical animals and foods, the strong winds and rains . . . We lived there with our two girls until April of 2012 when we moved back to Florida - and we now long for the days when we get to go and visit Manuel Antonio ourselves. We hope you love Costa Rica as much as we do!

                              Why Manuel Antonio:
                              Because it is awesome! Centrally located, beautiful, comfortable, easy walking distances, no need for a rental car, plus this house is private and quiet and has an awe-inspiring view!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              This house is truly in the middle of it all, yet just enough removed to make it a quiet, heavenly getaway where you can walk to everything including 10 restaurants, a bank, a few bars, a sports bar with pool tables, a car rental agency, two grocery stores, etc. . .
