Stay in one of the 4 Costa Rican homes featured on the television special 'Around the World in 80 Homes' on the Fine Living Channel. Our home is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, not 'in the Manuel Antonio area.' Please see the map below for details.
Casa Mono Titi is a Spanish-style home with a Pacific Ocean view. The home is nestled in the jungle with visits from monkeys, sloth, lizards, iguanas, birds, butterflies and other exotic wildlife. However, you are near beaches, restaurants, shopping and other tour activities. Tour companies retrieve and deliver directly to and from our home.
You will have all of the comforts of your home. Amenities include a full modern kitchen with fullsize refrigerator, icemaker, dishwasher, oven, microwave, stovetop, coffee maker & grinder, blender juicer, toaster, dinnerware and utensils.
Our home offers a dining room with vaulted ceilings, a living area to relax with friends, 2 master bedrooms with private baths, 2 guest bedrooms with a shared bath, a den with cable TV and 8 ceiling fans throughout the home. We offer one king bed, two queen beds, one double bed and a day bed. Each bedroom has individual A/C units so you may control the temperature for sleeping.
Step outside of the home to enjoy your own private mosaic tiled pool surrounded by a beautiful large (1260 square feet) tiled terrace. You will be hidden away in our lushly landscaped property and enjoy total privacy as you listen to the Pacific Ocean and stargaze while you relax. Use the BBQ gas grill to prepare dinner or ask us to bring in a cook for an in-house dinner.
The temperatures are generally in the 80s during the day and 70s at night, but air conditioning is available in the bedrooms if you feel the need to use it. Local telephone service, a computer and broadband (high speed) are now available for our guests at no additional charge. We also provide WiFi capabilities from our computer to your laptop for emailing your friends from the pool or terrace.
Daily maid service is provided and a multi-lingual house manager is available to welcome you, assist you with tour planning or meet any of your needs. Laundry service is also available for a small fee to our maid.
Casa Mono Titi is located on a private side road but near restaurants, beautiful beaches, shopping and nightlife. When you schedule tours, they will pick you up at the house. If you rent a vehicle, parking is provided. Inexpensive taxis and buses are abundant on the main road, if you decide not to rent a vehicle.
Casa Mono Titi is also available for long-term rental (6 months or more) at a deeply discounted rate. Please inquire for additional information and availability.
Manuel Antonio is a 3 hour drive through mountains and oceanside from San Jose. SANSA offers several flights daily from San Jose to Quepos, 20 minutes by air.
Casa Mono Titi is the perfect Costa Rican getaway.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Map is best viewed using Hybrid option. Our home is 400 meters off the main road and roughly 1600 meters (1 mile) from the beach 'as the toucan flies'.
Prior to living in Costa Rica, we lived in Chicago and owned a residential rental property business for 12 years. Suffering through many Chicago winters, it was an easy transition from the residential rental business up North to vacation rentals in Costa Rica. We built a home near Puriscal in the mountains of Costa Rica in 2006 and sold our final property in Chicago in 2007 completing our permanent move here. Although, we live in the mountains about 1 hour from San Jose, we visit our beach homes in Manuel Antonio when they are available to us.
We are actively involved in the communities of Manuel Antonio and Puriscal. We sponsored the purchase and installation of a 10-computer lab for the local elementary school in Piedades. We are currently providing full university scholastic scholarships to 5 local neighborhood youth. We have sponsored several local football teams with uniforms. We are active members of several ecological conservation groups. We love Costa Rica and believe in giving back as much or more than we receive from living in our new adopted country.
Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio: We first visited Costa Rica Christmas 1997. We immediately fell in love with the country, its people and of course, its climate. Having traveled around the world, seldom had we returned to the same location but that was to change. We visited Manuel Antonio each year for Christmas from 1998 to 2000. In 2000 we purchased our first home and in 2005 we built our 2nd home. We share our homes with others so they may experience the wildlife and magic of Costa Rica in a private setting with close family and friends.
We chose Manuel Antonio because it provides more flora & fauna diversity than any other location in Costa Rica. The climate in Manuel Antonio is near perfection no matter what time of year you visit. Even in the driest month of April, the flora is green and fresh, unlike to the northwest area of the country. Guests comment that they see more wildlife from our terraces than from any other location during their vacations. Our guests are our best advertisers.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Like many homes in Manuel Antonio, our homes sit on the hillside between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, overlooking the jungle and Pacific Ocean. However, unlike most other homes, we are on the very edge of the unspoiled jungle (see map) and your view has no other homes, roads, electrical lines or other obstacles to distract you. The monkeys, sloth & birds come right to our terraces & trees. The photo opportunities and memories are incomparable.
We hope you select one or both of our homes for your stay and have the experience we have had that led us to move to Costa Rica.
