About the Property

5 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 7 Baths, (sleeps 13)

Welcome to Bali House, where the rain forest meets the beach in beautiful Manuel Antonio! As the ONLY luxury rental property truly on Playa Espadilla (the main beach in Manuel Antonio) the Bali House is a 5 bedroom 7 bath Balinese Villa nestled into the rain forest just steps away from the ocean. This exotic tropical villa is on a 44-acre rainforest parcel bordering one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Our location is perfect for guests who love the beach and want to maximize their beach time. Most rental homes in Manuel Antonio are perched high in the hills and their guests must drive or walk down steep hills to reach public beach access areas. At the Bali House, you are at the beach. You simply walk down our garden path and you are at the private section of the beach in 1 minute! Come and enjoy our exotic hideaway in the most desirable location that Manuel Antonio has to offer - in the rain forest, yet on the beach.

Bali Village is comprised of a cluster of exclusive homes that represent the ONLY community residence directly on Playa Espadilla (the main beach in Manuel Antonio). Guests may rent the main 5 bedroom house. Friends and family live in the other two homes nearby but out of sight.

About The Bali House: The Bali House was designed by Balinese architect Ketut Arthana. Arthana is internationally recognized for his insightful work in designing luxury residences, tropical resorts and spas throughout Asia, Hawaii, North America and Europe including the elegant Puri Woolandari hotel in Bali, one of the Small Leading Hotels of the World. The villa was initially designed and framed in Bali from Indonesian ironwood. It was disassembled and shipped to Costa Rica along with all the furnishings and finishes and it was carefully reconstructed by a team of Balinese craftsmen.

Villa Staff: The Bali House is staffed by a manager/concierge, housekeeping, gardener, daily pool service, and maintenance staff. Your Concierge will be happy to arrange transportation from the International Airport to the house, reserve tours, hire a private chef, a masseuse, or anything else you need during your stay.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: The Bali house is operated by local Costa Ricans. Fernando is the property manager while Peter and Lily handle the bookings. The owner plans to place the entire 42 acre Akira Reserve into a protected Preserve with no other buildings other than structures associated with Organic farming. Most of the property will be left for the animals, the vegetation and those people lucky enough and willing to come visit.

Why Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Costa Rica:
The owner chose Manuel Antonio because of it's natural beauty and for the National Park. The property is one of the largest privately owned parcels in Manuel Antonio and the only 40+ acre property directly on the most popular beach of all of Costa Rica. Of course, there are also many amenities and adventure tours available in this area of Costa Rica as well as numerous outstanding restaurants and stores from which to choose.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The owner fell in love with the Bali house so he's a bit biased, but in truth, most people find the density of the jungle and the proximity of the ocean waves to be utter magic. Whether eating mangos off the patio deck, walking up the driveway to Raphael's Terrazas for a spectacular tuna salad or simply strolling down the beach with a refreshing coconut drink, everyone will find there is always something to do that is pleasant, healthy and attractive.
