About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)
There are many covered decks overlook the swimming pool which is a main feature of this property. From this area one can enjoy the reflection in the skies of the beautiful Costa Rican sunsets and view wildlife in the trees of the tropical rain forest.
The top part of the house is your space.(the owners live below in a private suite from Nov to April) The home was built in Nov 2008, so everything is still like new. The 2 bedrooms are a very good size and each one has its own private full bath. Each bedroom has a queen bed and one bedroom has a single bed by the window... which is full size single bed with 6 ' high density foam... very comfortable.
The kitchen is state of the art and equipped for you to prepare dinner using the local fresh produce and meats. You can enjoy your meal in the elegant dining area inside or on the deck outside. The home is outfitted with beautifully Costa Rican made furniture.

Brooks Hacienda is now offering the lower suite from April 27/16 to Jan 1/17, for a extra $125 a night. This can only be rented along with the upper level so we can accommodate 8 guests. One master suite and 2 bedrooms which have one queen and one single in each room. Not suitable with families with small children as the lower suite has a separate entrance. If the children are older and able to be on their own, then it would work. The lower suite is self contained so lovely for another couple, or grandma and grandpa.
50% deposit upon booking. The balance is due 60 days prior to arrival. Method of payment is Visa or Certified Cheque if the reservation is 60 days from check in date, full payment is due.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My husband, Randy and I, Kate are from British Columbia, Canada. We have a organic pear orchard in that province and have been active organic advocators since 1991. We have enjoyed visiting Costa Rica since 1994. In 2004, we decided on the location of Manuel Antonio (after many venturers around the country) and bought a lot. It took us 4 years to build Brooks Hacienda. It was a great experience, especially learning spanish and conversing with our contractor and employees. We live 6 months in Canada and 6 months in Costa Rica. We feel we have the perfect life. We love to meet people, so we built accommodations for people to come and stay at our lovely home and enjoy it and this beautiful country.
Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Costa Rica:
We chose to buy property in Manuel Antonio because it is the rainforest. The animals, wildlife, flora and fauna are alive and well. We love the vegetation and the warmth and moisture the climate offers. We also love the people of Manuel Antonio. The locals as well as the settled ex-pax. We travelled to many different areas of Costa Rica and experienced different developed tourist areas. This area has all the availability of tourist attractions and great restaurants as more populated areas, but we get the more adventuresome crowd. It is a smaller area and so far, the community has been able to keep the chain hotels at bay. Manuel Antonio is close to the old port town of Quepos, which offers great shopping for all your grocery supplies. There is everything from fresh seafood, vegetable and fruits to organic products sold in a grocery store. This quaint town also offers good restaurants and night life. You can enjoy many cultural events if your here at the right time of year. Costa Ricans love to celebrate any event.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Brooks Hacienda offers accommodations in a quiet, private neighbourhood. There are 8 luxury homes in this area owned by Americans and Canadians. The house is about a 15 minute walk from the main road. This allows you a very relaxed and tranquil vacation. We are away from the traffic, fumes and walk in traffic. The house is new since 2008, so all the appliances, housewares, and fixtures are in 100% working order. The view from the many decks is jungle. You cannot see the ocean but you can hear it. It is just thru the park on the other side of the trees. The house is situated far enough away from the trees that you do not feel enclosed. The house borders on Manuel Antonio National Park so you see many different animals and creatures, and hear sounds that you would never hear if you were not on the border of the park. The pool at Brooks Hacienda is a vacation in itself. Always sparkling clean. It is large enough to do your laps as well as float around on one of the many air mattresses and enjoy a tanning session. The beach area with jacuzzis at your back, is a great place to sit and read a book while staying cool. Brooks Hacienda is a welcoming home and awaits your visit.
