Property description

WE'RE VERY PROUD TO BE ONE OF THE TOP RATED VILLAS ON TRIPADVISOR FOR MANUEL ANTONIO!

BALI MODERN DESIGN - LUXURY - SUNSET OCEAN VIEWS - PRIVATE BEACH - PERSONAL CONCIERGE - POOL - MONKEYS DAILY!

Casa de Frutas is a privately owned luxury rental villa located in the renowned gated resort of Tulemar Gardens in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. This “Bali Modern” style house totals 4,000 square feet of tropical, open-air living with 3 large air conditioned bedrooms each with its own bath, kitchenette and dining area, outdoor living room and ocean views. Some of the many amenities include panoramic sunset ocean views, an infinity edge plunge pool, Balinese pavilion and a private award winning beach just minutes down the hill. Your perfect vacation begins at Casa de Frutas. (A 12 page photo spread of Casa de Frutas was featured in the architectural magazine Su Casa)

PERSONAL CONCIERGE SERVICE

One of the things our guests rave about the most, is the unexpected and unrivalled service they received during their stay at Casa de Frutas from Mauricio, their own personal concierge. 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 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. As one of guests remarked “He knew what we would need before we even asked”.

TULEMAR GARDENS RESORT

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 it’s 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. Tulemar’s private beach was also proud to have just received the prestigious “Blue Flag” award (Programa Bandera Azul Ecologica) signifying pristine water and beach area, and environmentally/ecologically protective practices. Food and beverage service is available. You can walk just 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
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:
Make sure you watch the 'video tour' of the villa...all of our guests say the same thing...your website photos are great, but they don't capture the feeling of walking thru front doors....it's breathtaking....our guests don't want to leave the house....but you'll also enjoy our pool and the private beach....our 'repeat' guests and their 'word of mouth' advertising keep us busy.
