About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Stunning Pool, Sleeps 6

Casa Gina Costa Rica is a private, romantic and secure home on a 1 1/2 acre jungle lot, located within the community of Manuel Antonio. Just minutes by bus or car to Quepos or the national park, our two bedroom, two bath fully air conditioned including the living room and kitchen home was designed from the start to provide you with a peaceful and rejuvenating experience.

A beautiful private pool with sandstone deck and palm roofed wet bar is the perfect place to spend your day. Double teak doors greet you from the main entrance and continue in each of the rooms. The home is furnished with high end custom made Guanacaste furniture, a dark and luscious wood that is the national tree of Costa Rica.

We brought the outside in: The main living area features a twelve foot ceiling decorated with teak and comfortable seating for eight. Whole house A/C units will keep everything cool and dry. Six sliders open into the pool area and main deck from the living area to form one large room, opening the home to the outside rain forest. Abundant recessed dimmer controlled lighting throughout the home provide a soft comfortable glow for entertaining or relaxing.

A comfortable place to spend your day is on one of Casa Gina's four decks. Many birds including toucans, three types of monkeys, sloths, iguanas and the majestic Blue Morpho butterfly call this area home. A gas grille is the perfect way to cook all of the fresh fish, chicken and vegetables that are available from the farmers market in town.

Our kitchen is tastefully designed with teak cabinets, granite counter-tops and quality stainless steel appliances. All expected small appliances are provided including an ice maker. A very complete set of utensils, pots and pans will make creating your own meals a delight. A breakfast island and wet bar for four invite you to linger and share a laugh or two with friends. The Guanacaste wood dining table has seating for four.

Both bedrooms feature king sized beds and quality bedding. Store your personal belongings in the beautiful matching armoires and nightstands. A remote controlled, A/C unit plus ceiling fans assure a comfortable nights rest. Individual private covered decks with large sliders bring the outside in and give you a quiet place to sit and read or to enjoy the sounds and sights of the rain forest. Each of the two full baths are finished with sandstone floors and shower enclosures. Teak counters, vessel sinks, rainfall shower heads and mood lighting complete the rooms.

Enjoy the quiet privacy of Casa Gina or immerse yourself in the warm friendly culture that is Costa Rica. Casa Gina is located five minutes from the town of Quepos and seven minutes from the beautiful white sand beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park. There are dozens of restaurants ranging from typical Costa Rican “sodas” to gourmet dining within minutes of the home.

Car: Recommended

The amazing Manual Antonio National Park is a seven minute ride by car from Casa Gina. The town of Quepos is a five minute drive from the house. There is a bus stop that is a ten minute walk from the house and can take you to town or the beach. You will most likely want to rent a car. Cabs are everywhere.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: After spending the last several decades in Colorado amidst the beautiful mountains of the front range we found ourselves always longing for the ocean as well. A visit to Costa Rica in 2005 led us to experience the wonderful abundance of wildlife and warm people that so many have written about. Now that we are getting around to thinking about the perfect place for us to retire to the combination of Summer in the Rockies and Winter on a Costa Rican beach seems like a dream come true.

Why the Owner Chose Valle Pura Vida, Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Costa Rica:
Although each new visit brought us to a different area of the country we found ourselves always returning to Manuel Antonio for the beautiful beaches and great selection of food. We selected our lot based on how private it was, yet so close to all of the special things to do in Manuel Antonio. Our builder designed and constructed the house to take advantage of our jungle view and all the wonderful nature that is visible from all of the rooms.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our private pool in the midst of the jungle is the perfect place to spend your days relaxing with nature and observing the many visitors to the property. A small nature trail with marked fruit trees will offer a unique experience. The gourmet kitchen and two wet bars will keep you fed and watered.
