Private Villa/House With Ocean View, 3 BR's, Sleeps up to 8
Wow!! What a spectacular View ... Guests say as they gaze out over the beautiful, blue Pacific. This private 3 BR Villa (private house, not a Condo) offers the perfect vacation location with the closest proximity to the beach than most of the other properties with an ocean view. The Villa is in a jungle setting and is not located in a condominium complex. It's just a short walk to the beach where you can take a stroll, Horseback Ride, or Surf the exciting waves. Monkeys, Sloths, Toucans and hundreds of species of exotic birds and wildlife will entertain you. Adventure lovers can take advantage of the many beach activities (including surfing and parasailing), take a Zip Line Tour, Raft down an exciting river, or go World Class Sport Fishing. Or just relax in our beautiful private pool while taking in the awesome view! The Villa has a washer/dryer, cable TV, telephone and WiFi Internet; the 3rd BR Suite also has a TV and Wifi.

This Manuel Antonio Villa offers visitors close proximity to world-class beaches and magnificent views from La Vista of beautiful sunsets with Cathedral Point as a backdrop. From this Manuel Antonio vacation Villa, you can explore all the charm of Costa Rica with rafting down the wilds of the Naranjo River, or hiking in the Manuel Antonio National Park. 24 of the 27 major adventure activities offered in Costa Rica are available in Manuel Antonio so there is little need to waste your vacation time traveling to and from other areas.
As you explore Manuel Antonio, take in the amazing combination of lush vegetation and spectacular scenery. This Manuel Antonio vacation Villa gives you access to a part of the world few people get to see. Known for its exotic beauty and wildlife, Manuel Antonio houses a myriad of interesting creatures including sloths, iguanas, raccoons, white-faced and howler monkeys, and the unique endangered squirrel monkey called Titi -- all frequently visit the area around La Vista. Although the location offers a glimpse into the majesty of the rainforest, Manuel Antonio also allows vacationers to enjoy exquisite cuisine in many nearby restaurants like Barba Roja for seafood (within walking distance), La Mariposa Hotel for fine dining, Ronny's Place, voted best sunset view, or Emilio's (within walking distance) for some awesome desserts!
Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: Our names are Nancy and Steve Dunlap and we currently live in TN, near Chattanooga. My husband and I built Villa la Vista in 1998 after falling in love with Costa Rica while vacationing there. We especially loved Manuel Antonio and knew that when we retired we would love to spend the Winter months looking out over the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean. Our dream has finally come true (we retired in 2010) and we now spend as much time as possible enjoying our property. We hope that you will also enjoy this beautiful, friendly country and will want to return again and again. Pura Vida!
Why the Owner Chose Quepos, Costa Rica:
We chose Manuel Antonio due to its natural beauty. We also love wildlife and the exotic animals and birds that can be seen in this area are a wildlife lovers dream come true.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
If you want an escape from the everyday, consider our Manuel Antonio vacation rental in Costa Rica and experience a little slice of paradise. Manuel Antonio offers visitors world-class beaches and magnificent views from La Vista of gorgeous sunsets with Cathedral Point as a backdrop. From this Manuel Antonio vacation rental, you can explore all the charm of Costa Rica with rafting down the wilds of the Naranjo River, or hiking in the Manuel Antonio National Park. 24 of the 27 major adventure activities offered in Costa Rica are available in Manuel Antonio so there is little need to waste your vacation time traveling to and from other areas. If it is unique experiences you are looking for La Vista will be the right vacation spot for you: Watch friendly Titi monkeys wrestle and play on the patio, watch Momma Titi nurse her newborn baby on the railing, observe the White Faced/Capuchin monkeys drinking from and bathing in the pool (keep the doors shut as they will also come in and steal your bananas!), awaken to the “howling” gorilla-like sounds of the Howler/Congo monkeys, or the raucous Chachalaca birds that nest in the flora below the Villa, spot Momma Sloth who may slowly detach her baby from her breast and gently hang it on a branch so she can stretch out and groom herself, or stop your car on the road to help a slow moving Sloth cross to safety, be startled awake when the nocturnal Kinkajou runs across the roof at night, and let’s not forget about all the crazy iguanas that live on the roof and in the surrounding trees and the gorgeous Toucans that visit every morning! The numerous geckos provide free pest control, but don't worry, they will not come down and try to sell you insurance! These are just a few of the amazing experiences the jungle wildlife may offer you, providing you with one of the most fantastic and unbelievable vacation experiences of a lifetime!
