About the Property

3BD plus loft/3BT sleeps 12. Outdoor shower

Yes! This is it! The vacation rental house of your dreams AND within your budget!! Warm orange sunsets while floating in the cool blue pool of the Casa Barba Roja with simple sounds of the jungle on three sides of the house - this is not a dream but rather a dream come true. Think you hear something running across the roof? You probably did because we regularly get troops of Capuchin (White-face Monkeys) and Titi Monkeys both around and on top of our house.
Newly remodeled! We have added a third bedroom plus a third bathroom! This room is now visible in the photos and is by far the most beautiful bedroom of the house. The bedroom and bathroom together measure 550 square feet. This new bedroom is adorned with beautiful teak accents, a teak ceiling and gorgeous, thick teak doors. The room is warm, bright and well thought out.
Centrally located in the commercial heart of Manuel Antonio - yet remarkably immersed in the surrounding jungle, this house is truly ONE OF A KIND. You will not find a more conveniently located house, with this stunning view and the calm, green of the jungle all around. Leave the neighbors at home!

Awesome new Gym for locals and tourists alike, 10 restaurants, 2 international grocers, 2 banks, the public bus stop, 4 bars, 4 gift/art stores, and a car rental agency within walking distance - and this secluded, private, vast estate all to your self? Come Join us at Casa Barba Roja - in the heart of Manuel Antonio.
Along with the jungles and beaches and surf of Costa Rica, this house will be a memorable part of your stay here in Manuel Antonio! Our Concierge, Josue Castro, is always available to make this trip exactly what you want whether that is high-energy and full of adrenaline, or calm and relaxing spending a lot of time staring at the view!
Arriving to the Casa Barba Roja you will find some delicious local, Costa Rican fruit available for immediate consumption, or wait until the next day and have Roxana, the maid, cut it all up for you! We now also provide 250g of Coffee for all guests staying Dec - Aug so that you can arrive and immediately enjoy a cup of delicious, hot Costa Rican coffee!
Gorgeous, open, spacious house - perhaps the best deal in Manuel Antonio and NOW SLEEPS 12 PEOPLE! This remodeled home has all the amenities to make your trip delightful, stress-free, exotic, and comfortable, while hosting a very tropical, open, bright design that will surely erase all winter blues! Jungle, ocean, sunsets, monkeys, butterflies, mapaches, iguanas - and virtually no neighbors!
This house has plenty of indoor space and plenty of outdoor space as well, both covered and open-air decks. There is a roofed outdoor area above the pool deck that measures 600sq.ft. and the pool and pool-deck roughly measure 800 sq. ft. Hop in the pool, get some sun, feel better about life and then relax on one of our lounge chairs or sit back in the shade of our covered deck. See the monkeys go by while losing yourself into the deep green/blue ocean of the quiet/peaceful/gorgeous Bisanz Bay. Relax, sit back, unwind, de-stress and enjoy one of the magnificent ocean views on the planet according to the Ottawa Citizen, which calls the Barba Roja Restaurant (100 meters from the Barba Roja House) 'One of the Top 5 places in the world to watch water.' We are here to help make your vacation stress-free! Ask us about a private chef to dine in, tours and activities in the area, transportation to and from San Jose or other parts of Costa Rica.
Centrally located next to Tulemar Gardens and the Barba Roja Restaurant, everything you will need for your stay is within walking distance: International grocer - 5 minute walk, 8 of the area's top restaurants are within a 5 minute walk, the top four bars on Manuel Antonio are with a 3 minute walk. And the absolute best part, while this house is located close to all of these locals, there is virtually no noise of any sort due to jungle on four sides of the house. Even the secluded Los Altos beach is only a 15-20 minute-downhill walk (careful: uphill will take much longer.
This house is centrally located at the halfway point between the beaches of Manuel Antonio and the town of Quepos. This house is only 130 meters off of the main road, yet is nestled into the jungles of Costa Rica so that all you hear are the sounds of nature. This recently remodeled home is fully furnished and extremely comfortable, and filled with top of the line appliances, as well as teak wood furniture and ceilings, plus a brand new pool and loft to make the house more livable. The pool and outdoor deck and shower were built in Sept of 2011.
There are 3 full bedrooms and a loft. In the NEWEST bedroom (to be ready for use in October 2015) there is 1 king-size bed plus twin twin beds (a day bed with a trundle bed)a separate shower and toilet area. In the Master bedroom there is an amazingly comfortable King-size memory foam mattress along with a private bath remodeled in 2013. The third bedroom has two soft queen-size beds and a newly remodeled bathroom (in 2014) and there are also two twin beds in the loft. The bathrooms are reasonably large and comfortable and all have either been built or remodeled since 2013!
We have also recently added an outdoor shower either to rinse off the sand from your feet when coming back from the beach or to just shower outside!!
The beaches of Manuel Antonio are a 3 minute drive or a 15-20 minute downhill walk (this is the beach on the Los Altos property - the main beaches of Playa Espadilla are a 20-25 minute downhill). We have many guests return year after year because this house MAKES their Costa Rican vacation!!!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: I moved to Manuel Antonio in Aug of 2004 because I simply fell in love with the delightful Costa Rican people and the convergence of powerful elements all meeting in one place - the mighty Pacific Ocean, the strong sun, the wildness of the jungle, the tropical animals and foods, the strong winds and rains . . . We lived there with our two girls until April of 2012 when we moved back to Florida - and we now long for the days when we get to go and visit Manuel Antonio ourselves. We hope you love Costa Rica as much as we do!

Why Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Costa Rica:
Because it is awesome! Centrally located, beautiful, comfortable, easy walking distances, no need for a rental car, plus this house is private and quiet and has an awe-inspiring view! This house is beautiful, colorful, artsy, well-decorated, central, spacious and with a one-of-a-kind ocean/sunset view home! This house will make your spirits soar!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is truly in the middle of it all, yet just enough removed to make it a quiet, heavenly getaway where you can walk to everything including 10 restaurants, a bank, a few bars, a sports bar with pool tables, a car rental agency, two grocery stores, etc. . .
