About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

'Terraza Apartment' gets its name from its spacious patio surrounded by mango, papaya, coconut and banana trees and exotic flowers. Ideal for single person or couple seeking exotic tropical setting and tranquility, yet minutes away from the world class Manuel Antonio beach and night life of the area. You can take a different nature hike every day in the hills nearby, or to a beautiful beach a half hour walk below. Cool off with a swim in the sea when you get there in a protected bay where you will be lucky (or unlucky) to see another human being!

Perfect for nature - lovers because you may wake up to the calls of howler monkeys, observe titi and white-face monkeys, sloths and colorful birds from your patio, and hear the unforgettable calls of a pair of Great Tinamou, sometimes accompanied by a pair of blue-crowned motmots, roosting in the tree outside your door.

Guests are welcome to relax by the fountain in the garden above the apartment.

Built in 2005, based on architect Edgar Rojas´ concept of harmony with Costa Rica's natural surroundings, this apartment typically uses native materials throughout. It was freshly painted in Feb. 2016 and has a new sofa bed, very comfy.

Most of the furniture is hand-crafted out of teak and cedar by local carpenters. Fully equipped with state of the art facilities, including both modern air conditioning and fans. Weekly maid service included, can be more frequent if required for small extra cost. Guard on property 6 p.m. - 6 a.m.

House manager available to organize tours. Chef can be provided.

Only a seven minute car or bus ride to the world-class Manuel Antonio beach and park. Buses to Quepos or Manuel Antonio only a 3 minute walk away. Plenty of international and local restaurants in the area.
