Because this part of the Retreat space sits in the Jungle you will see activity of 3 kinds of monkey, sloths, hummingbirds, woodpeckers and other birds and animals and the best part is they can not get into your living space.
Believe it or not you are only a few minute walk from the main road in Manuel Antonio!!

Location: Really the best in Manuel Antonio. The villa is located in the most exclusive, private, residential area in Manuel Antonio. Plus the villa has lots of surrounding property, so you can't see the neighbors! Some of the best restaurants and hotels are located less than a 5 minute walk away. The beach is a 10-15 minute walk. The town of Quepos is 3 miles to the north, and is home to a beautiful new marina.
View: Partial ocean views as the rainforest comes right up to the floor to ceiling windows. If you don't see monkeys or sloths you probably aren't looking.
The House The 2,000 square foot, 3 bedroom home is divided into two floors. The materials used are glass, granite, custom ceramic tiles, stucco, stainless steel, and aluminum.
The entry level features a great room with floor to ceiling windows with spectacular views of the treetop canopy, and partial views of the Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio national park.

About the owner: My name is Tammy the new owner of this property. I have been coming to Manuel Antonio for 5 years with a vision to open a retreat space for guest to come and enjoy, relax, rejuvenate, and renew. I live on the property in a separate studio unit and available for your questions, suggestion, and needs. I am also your on site massage therapist trained and certified though the U.S.
I am in the process of converting the property into one unit for a retreat get away where you can custom design your time and activities you want to enjoy without the hassle of planning them.
People literally did not know what a spa was.
Well a lot has changed, but our spa is still going strong and continues to be one of the leaders in Costa Rica.
We build the villa only a few years ago to use when we visit Manuel Antonio. Which because of life is unfortunately not very often.
We hope you love it as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio: After spending months traveling all over Costa Rica in search of the perfect location we fell in love with Manuel Antonio. No only do this property offer nature it is very well saturated in the center of Manuel Antonio giving you connivence to banks, shopping, beach, and a wide verity of activates of your choice.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: I love an early morning walk down the dirt road that leads to the north end of the beach. (Great surfing spot) Then stroll down the beach to one of the sea side restaurants for breakfast only a 10 minute walk.
