About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Villa Titi is a quiet, private home on the grounds of the Hotel Selina Manuel Antonio. This distinctive Mediterranean style villa, located above Manuel Antonio beach, takes advantage of the prevailing ocean breeze and offers all the comforts of home. The deluxe lower suite can comfortably accommodate three with a queen size bed, plus a single bed. This suite has an open spacious floor plan with a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, large private bath and living room that opens to a covered patio. The comfortable second floor bedroom, with a queen size bed, also has a private bath and covered terrace for relaxation as you take in the surrounding beauty. Separate entries on both levels provide optimum privacy. Villa Titi is equipped with both ceiling fans and air conditioning.
Villa Titi also has satellite television in both bedrooms and was recently updated with large flat screen TVs. It also has Wi-Fi throughout the house, and separate telephones on each level of the home.
“Titi” is the Costa Rican name for the endangered Central American squirrel monkey or Mono Titi. Often times you will be greeted in the morning by the sights and sounds of the “Titis” as they pass overhead, foraging for mangoes next to our house, on their daily rounds. We also have the white face or Mono Blanco monkeys around the house each day as well! In the distance you will hear the howler monkeys and the squawk of the green parrots as they fly overhead. Observe some of the most rare and exotic animal life on earth. Costa Rica is home to more than 9,000 species of birds and animals, as bird watcher’s paradise! Or, just sit under a palm tree with a good book and enjoy the warm ocean breeze.
A short distance away is the Manuel Antonio National Park entrance, where the tropical rain forest meets dazzling white sand beaches. Enjoy a relaxing day with friends at the beach, taking in the sun and surf. Or, simply enjoy a dip in our refreshing pool.
The pool at the Hotel Eclipse is a short walk from your door (approx. 50 meters). After a dip in our pool comes the hard part – selecting one of the many excellent nearby restaurants for dinner! Choose from French, Italian, German, Asian or “Tico” style restaurants. We highly recommend the “catch of the day” such as Mahi Mahi, Yellow fin Tuna, or Snapper. Other varieties are also seasonally available.

Car: Not Necessary
Our house is very near the Manuel Antonio National Park. There is a small fee for entry and guided tours are available. There are some very good restaurants and bars, both straight and gay, nearby.
Year Purchased: 1993
About: My partner Steve and I have been traveling to Costa Rica since 1988! It is a fantastic country; the people are wonderful; the food is fabulous; and the beaches are incredible. There is an amazing variety of wildlife, with warm temperatures year around. The average high temperature during high season from late December to April is about 88 degrees F (31degrees C), and the average low temperature is 75 degrees F (24 degrees C).
Why Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
The Manuel Antonio area is one of the most popular resort areas in Costa Rica and is easily accessible by car, bus or air. The new highway from San Jose makes the 150km trip about a 2 hour drive. There is also frequent bus service and almost hourly air service! This area is quite different from the northwest part of the country in that the climate is very tropical with very lush vegetation and wild life. The Manuel Antonio beach is almost 2 km long and is also one of the best in all of Central America! The water is warm year around and there is fairly good surfing at the north end of the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is on the grounds of the Hotel Eclipse property but we choose to operate it apart from the hotel. We are part of an association that still allows us access to the pool and off street parking. Security is provided by the hotel's security staff. They not only guard the house but the off street parking lot as well. Since we are near the equator, the sun rises before 6am almost every day of the year, and it sets around 6pm as well. Our favorite thing is to rise early, make a pot of fabulous Costa Rican coffee, with a breakfast of just picked fresh fruit and listen to the jungle awaken! It is very easy to spend a couple of hours doing this. Then, it's off to the beach or a walk through the National Park. The trees and vegetation grow right down to the sand on the beach, so it is easy to spread your towel under a group of palm trees or the native "allmendro" or almond trees that lean out over the white sand. Lunch is a filet of mahi mahi, tuna or a hamburger and fries. The beer is the best, with most of the Costa Rican breweries originating in Germany over 100 years ago! A nap or late afternoon swim at the pool is a nice way to finish the day, before the tough decision of deciding where to eat dinner. After dinner, it's a little reading or watching television, before turning out the lights at 10pm. Get a good nights sleep, because the jungle will wake you before 6am the next day!
