Quepos villa description

Luxury - Architectural Design - Sunset Ocean Views - Private Beach - Monkeys - Personal Butler Service

Casa de Frutas is a privately owned luxury rental villa located in the gated resort of Tulemar Gardens in Manuel Antonio. This “Bali Modern” style house totals 4,000 square feet of tropical, open-air living with 3 private, air conditioned suites. Some of the many amenities include panoramic ocean views, an infinity edge plunge pool, Balinese pavilion and a private award winning beach just minutes down the hill. Perhaps the most unique and distinguished feature is the service of your own personal butler to attend to your every need. This home is now available to rent through out the year. Your perfect vacation begins at Casa de Frutas. (A 12 page photo spread of Casa de Frutas was in the architectural magazine Su Casa).


Personal Butler: One of the things our guests rave about the most is the unexpected and unrivaled service they received during their stay at Casa de Frutas from Mauricio, their own personal butler. Mauricio, a native of Costa Rica, graduated from ULACIT University with a business degree, and then spent three years in the US working and studying English. After his time in the US, he returned to Costa Rica to work in banking and hospitality, learning the high level of service required to excel in both industries. Mauricio has worked with Casa de Frutas from the beginning in management, marketing and the butler/concierge role. He takes pride in knowing what guests expect staying in a luxury vacation rental, and utilizes his extensive network of local contacts to fulfill all our guests wishes. You can feel comfortable at Casa de Frutas knowing that whatever you need during your stay will be taken care of by Mauricio.

                      Tulemar is exactly where you want to be in Manuel Antonio! It is the only gated and secure, 33 acre resort development in Manuel Antonio with its own private beach. There are nature and hiking trails leading thru the jungle areas complete with plaques describing trees and vegetation. You will see as much wildlife in Tulemar as you do at the national park including all three types of monkeys, sloths, exotic birds, insects and other wildlife. The private beach is perfect for swimming and snorkeling and has free lounge chairs, umbrellas, sea kayaks, and boogie boards for all guests to use. Food and beverage service is available. You can walk 5 minutes down the hill to the beach and either walk back up or take the resort shuttle. Tulemar is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, within walking distance to the best restaurants and fun bars. The national park is just minutes down the street.

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: Born and raised in the Central Valley of California, I worked with my parents and brothers until we sold our 'family business' in 1996 and I was able to travel. Costa Rica was one of my first trips; each year I returned for a longer stay. In 2002 I bought a piece of land and began building my home here. Finished in 2005 (and still looking brand new!) I have now moved to Costa Rica as a full time resident, renting Casa de Frutas, living in a tropical bungalow (Ku De Ta) nearby and building other vacation homes.

                      Why Quepos:
                      Manuel Antonio is THE DESTINATION in Costa Rica....set along the mountain top above beautiful beaches....surrounded by dense jungle and exotic wildlife .....a very small, eclectic community filled with surfers, sportsfishermen, backpackers, international tourists and the wonderful Costa Rican people! The most expensive real estate in all of Costa Rica is here....for a reason....no mega resorts(yet).....very casual and very comfortable.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Personal concierge services will make you feel pampered all week. You don't need to worry about a thing! Come experience luxury in the midst of the Costa Rican rainforest. An amazing experience awaits you!
