Property description

Nestled in a true wildlife sanctuary, this contemporary 3 bedroom home offers quiet seclusion within Manuel Antonio Estates-- one of the most accessible and beautiful gated communities in the area. This gem is situated just minutes away from downtown Quepos, the white sand beaches of the Manuel Antonio National Park, and the new world-class Marina Pez Vela. Manuel Antonio beaches have been voted in the top 20 beaches in the world according to Trip Advisor. The quality of the building materials and the detailed workmanship of Kiskadee Casa is exquisite. Imported Italian tiles, wooden French doors with ornate stained glass panels leading to the master bedroom, a spacious, elegant master bathroom, and the local hardwood finishes are just a few of the incredible features. Because of its location at the end of the cul-de-sac, the house enjoys privacy, as well as safety, with 24 hour security. The three comfortable bedrooms can easily accommodate 4 - 6 residents. Each bedroom is equipped with its own quiet AC unit with remote control, which you don't find often in Costa Rica. Why rent two or three hotel rooms, when you can rent an entire, family-friendly house for the price of one hotel room? With a full kitchen, feel free to take advantage of the local markets, including the farmers market on Saturdays, to prepare your own meals with fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables and freshly caught fish. Or, just outside the estates you will find an abundant variety of restaurants from casual, ethnic, and al fresco, to 4 & 5-star gourmet dining with beautiful ocean views.

Kiskadee Casa is ideal for families who love the surroundings of the lush rain forest and can’t get enough of the pure sounds of the jungle. Step outside and be entertained by visitors such as bright, colorful toucans and macaws, playful monkeys and adorable sloths. Fruit trees and flowers are abundant on the property. Green areas cover a large portion of the estates with 5 km of hiking trails with small creeks and waterfalls. Although, we don't have a pool on site at this time, ask the concierge for convenient locations nearby. Visitors can, also, frequent the Raindrop Spa, a beautifully appointed, Balinese-inspired new day spa with outdoor gardens, offering many types of therapies as well as yoga & Pilates and located right on the Estates' property.

With various modes of transportation easily accessible, you can enjoy a multitude of exciting activities in the area including zip-lining, whale and dolphin watching, boating, para-sailing, bird watching, eco-tourism, tennis, golf, and huge, wild crocodiles at Carrara National Park, just to name a few. Not only are there tours of the park but many other local tours for which pick up can be arranged. Recommended examples are Damas Island, a canopy tour in Rainmaker Park where you can swim and stand under a waterfall, Horseback tour to waterfall, Nighttime Jungle tour. If interested, please contact Mario Brenes at Costa Jade Tours at web@CostaRicaJadeTours.com and tell him you are staying at Kiskadee Casa. You may want to book a charter boat for deep sea fishing. We recommend the Dragin Fly at info@pamlicoguide.com. Please, tell them we sent you.

Day trips can, also, be arranged from Kiskadee Casa for snorkeling at Caño Island, whale and dolphin watching, Corcovado National Park, and other exciting tours leaving from Marino Bellena National Park. For tours, please contact Wayne Vasquez at CostaRicaToursFreeInfo@gmail.com and tell him you are staying at Kiskadee Casa.

Shuttle or bus service is available to and from San Jose airport. One could rent a car at the airport and drive approximately 3.5 hours to Quepos/Manuel Antonio on good roads or fly Nature Air from San Jose to Quepos and arrange for car rental after arrival at one of the local agencies. Flights take about 25 minutes. Or choose to use local shuttle or taxi service once you arrive.

Here is a quote from Forbes Magazine about Manuel Antonio Park: “Here is a stunning combination of beaches and coral reefs, perfect for snorkeling and exploring the area’s famous tangle of mangroves. Rainforest jungles remain untouched habitats for Brown-throated Three-toed Sloths, iguanas, Central American squirrel monkeys and birds of extraordinary colors. One of Costa Rica’s smallest national parks, Manuel Antonio is nevertheless one of its most popular, with activities ranging from white-water rafting and sea kayaking to horseback riding on one of the park’s four beaches.”

From Broadwayworld.com: “Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, has had its debut, and is now becoming one of the top 'boutique' travel destinations in the world. Forbes called Manuel Antonio National Park one of the '12 Most Beautiful National Parks of the World'.

Costa Rica is fast becoming one of the top vacation spots for families. Manuel Antonio has much to offer including beautiful white sand beaches, calm waters, kid-friendly tours, National Park, and abundant, exotic wildlife. Kiskadee Casa is a budget-savvy, tropical rain forest oasis just minutes from all that Manuel Antonio has to offer. Enjoy your stay. Pura vida.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I am a teacher from Illinois living with my wife in Tennessee. I have always been a nature lover and outdoor enthusiast. I have traveled to many places, but Costa Rica has it all. It was love at first sight. So, my wife and I decided to 'settle down' and buy this gorgeous house to which we hope to retire someday. In the meantime, we would love to share it with you. People are very warm and friendly, here. I love the abundant, exotic wildlife and being so close to the ocean. Opportunity for adventure abounds. The picture is of one of our favorite tour guides, Mario Brenes, and me on a canopy tour of Rainmaker Park.

Why Quepos:
Tranquil, secure home away from home minutes from all Manuel Antonio has to offer. 24/7 security. Why pay for multiple hotel rooms that are just average. Nature lovers dream. Lots of amenities. Spa on the grounds with yoga and Pilates. Easy to get to. Near restaurants, grocery stores, farmers market. Easy to get transportation. Tours to suit all interests. Easy to do day trips to other areas of Costa Rica. Monkeys, monkeys, monkeys. Dazzling bird colors. Peaceful, serene, relaxing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located in wildlife sanctuary. Hiking trails. Waterfall. Safe. Fully air conditioned. Much more comfortable than staying in a stuffy hotel room. Full kitchen. Private laundry facilities on site. Concierge service speak English, Spanish, French, German. Maid service included.
