Manuel Antonio villa description

For the third straight year, CasaTolteca has won the 'Top Vacation Rental - Manuel Antonio' award!

In fact, CasaTolteca has remained one of the most popular and most requested home in Manuel Antonio for the past 8 years with good reason. There are plenty of beautiful homes in Manuel Antonio, but ONLY CasaTolteca has:
1) Perfect location... close to the beach as well as the town (there are only two large homes in town that you can comfortably walk to the public beach where you will find the entrance to the National Park).
2) Complete privacy with no visible neighbors.
3) Perfect layout for groups with 4 living spaces... one large great room for everyone to get together when you want, and three other living areas for everyone to have their own private space when needed.
4) Horizontal layout that rolls up into the rainforest, which gives you that great indoor/outdoor feeling that you are living in the rain-forest, not just looking over it.


Most Popular Home in Manuel Antonio: CasaTolteca is more than a home, it's a private luxury estate nestled up in the enchanted Manuel Antonio rain-forest. Perfect for large groups, CasaTolteca includes four fully equipped living suites including 2 large great rooms... large enough for weddings and family reunions.
Surrounded by lush rain-forest with no visible neighbors, exotic birds, monkeys, and other wildlife frequently visit CasaTolteca. Walk through our colorful butterfly garden and out our secure entrance gate and you can walk to over a dozen restaurants, bars, a private nature reserve, casinos, or to the beach in just minutes. You don’t need a car!
From virtually every corner of the estate, you have complete privacy. Enjoy the view of lush tropical rain-forest and stunning ocean vistas with no neighbors or distractions. Most other homes are built on narrow lots with neighbors just feet away. With CasaTolteca you do not feel confined to the indoors.

Extraordinary peace, privacy and seclusion: CasaTolteca is private and secure gated property which offers extraordinary peace, privacy and seclusion within the rain-forest. Frequent monkeys, sloths, flocks of toucans, and many spectacular lizards may be observed about the villa. Hundreds of species of birds have been spotted from our balconies.

Experience CasaTolteca now - its lush jungle setting and breathtaking ocean views are out of this world. Explore the many exciting attractions of this pristine coastal rain forest from one of the most pleasant and delightfully relaxing luxury havens in all of Central America.

Please allow us to help assure that you and your entire group enjoy a truly fabulous expedition in this incomparable tropical paradise. Contact us anytime. We will be happy to tell you more about Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio, and CasaTolteca. We look forward to hearing from you soon, and to eventually serving you at CasaTolteca!

'Thank you for the beautiful accommodations at Casa Tolteca. It was breathtaking and perfect in every way. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, clean, and spacious place to stay, with all the comforts of home. Every morning we were entertained by monkeys, out back and around the balconies. We also had a sloth hanging in one of the trees and of course several iguanas on the tree tops--it was fabulous. During our last evening, several toucans swooped by and landed in the tree over the pool. 'Your concierge was wonderful and the maid did a great job. We were greeted by them on Saturday with gorgeous flower arrangements and a huge basket of fresh fruit. The entire villa smelled of fresh flowers. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in and saw the view out over the lush rain forest and the pacific ocean and how perfect everything was. 'We saw more wildlife and beauty from our balcony then we did in the park. It was wonderful!

                                  Car: Not Necessary

                                  CasaTolteca is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, one of the closest homes to the world-famous National Park. Surrounded by rain-forest, just walk through our private butterfly garden and out the front gate to easily walk to all the best restaurants, casinos, clubs, bars and discos.

                                  Several world-class beaches and the famous National Park are just a two minute drive or ten minute walk from the villa.

                                  All this means that you may not need to rent a vehicle during your stay at CasaTolteca, since inexpensive cabs and public buses frequently pass by its main entry gate throughout the day and evening. The CasaTolteca complex is spread out horizontally, not vertically like most other houses in the area, giving an open feeling that you are on a large property, not just in a house.

                                  CasaTolteca is surrounded by rain-forest and gardens, not other houses, giving you complete privacy, except, of course, for the monkeys, birds and other animals that frequently visit the house.

                                  Other Activities: zip line; horseback ride; jet ski; etc

                                  Golf: The nearest golf course is about 45 minutes away from Manuel Antonio

                                  Year Purchased: 2006

                                  About: After year's of traveling through Asia and Europe, Costa Rica was my first travel through the Americas. I quickly fell in love with the people and the incredible beauty of Manuel Antonio, purchasing an estate as my home-away-from-home in 2006. After extensive renovations, I'm proud that I have made CasaTolteca the most rented home in the country... unfortunately, that means I rarely get to visit. So recently, I purchased another acre of land to build my retirement home in a few years.

                                  Why Manuel Antonio:
                                  Costa Rica has many beautiful areas, but none more spectacular or famous than Manuel Antonio. Manuel Antonio has the best of everything Costa Rica has to offer in one place. While other small towns of Costa Rica are growing too fast with tall towers and fast food restaurants, I will always have the natural beauty and privacy of Manuel Antonio National Park right next to me.
