The upper floor has two bedrooms with air/two baths, living room, dining room, kitchen and large outdoor terrace with cathedral ceilings in the living room, kitchen/dining room and master bedroom. There is additional sleeping for one in the living room. Ceiling fans are found in every room. The lower floor is one bedroom/one bath/full air, living room, kitchen and private terrace.

Both apartments enjoy WIFI and are equipped with all household equipment including linens and towels. The pool is the perfect place to relax and the entire property is surrounded by lush garden and jungle making it perfect for animal watching. Sit on either of our terraces and watch the playful squirrel monkeys. We have two other varieties of monkeys that may pass by, as well as sloths, exotic birds including toucans and many more. Although very quiet, we are conveniently located and near to the public bus that runs frequently between Quepos and the beach. It will take you only five minutes (and apprx 50 cents) to arrive at either town or beach. You can also walk into town on the 'old road' passing a magnificent view of the new marina. There are many restaurants within walking distance and many more in Quepos/Manuel Antonio that will fit any budget and any taste. We will be happy to share our favorites with you. Our area offers every water sport imaginable including surfing, paddle boarding, fishing, snorkeling, sea parachute, canopy trails, butterfly farms, horse back riding. Or just relax on the beach under the palm trees! The people of Costa Rica always have a smile on their faces to welcome you and our on-sight manager is available at all times.

About Ann Francois

We are an international couple with Willy born in Normandy, France and Ann from the U.S. We met in beautiful New Mexico over 30 years ago and have been creating beauty and traveling together ever since. We live full time in the mountains of Pennsylvania where we have a design studio, Willan F., producing hand made gifts for government, fine stores, galleries and corporations world wide. For recreation, we dance Argentine Tango! We discovered Manuel Antonio 22 years it only gets better with age!

Ann Francois purchased this Villa in 2008

Why Ann Francois chose El Cerro

Since our first visit to Costa Rica in 1992 and with every visit thereafter, we fell more in love with the country, its people and especially with Manuel Antonio. When we first saw the homes of Chaman being constructed with their red roofs, yellow walls, and tiled swimming pool, our hearts beat faster. Constructed by an Italian contracted, the complex merged European tastes with a feeling of tropical ease. We purchased the last lot of the complex and built our dream living quarters that includes spaciousness, privacy, comfort We were original contributors to the final contours of Chaman, with ts lush gardens, private walls and front gate. It has been a splendid adventure!

What makes this Villa unique

The area of Manuel Antonio/Quepos is unique in its blend of people from around the world.... USA, Canada, French Canada, France, England, Germany, Italy, Argentina, Middle East and Costa Rica of course. You will find cuisine from each in our vicinity. It's an amazing delight to enjoy this variety of food while looking out over the sea at sunset! The weather is always warm and the sea temperature is perfect. There is never a hurry relax and enjoy life. Try water sports, horse back riding, nature watching in Manuel Antonio National Park with a guide, a boat trip where you might follow whales and dolphins or get pampered at one of the many luxurious just inhale the scent of magnolia or ylang ylang. The new marina in Quepos makes one think of Santa Barbara and is open for breakfast, lunch or dinner and take a stroll at the Quepos boardwalk on Friday or Saturday for our fresh farm market or join the festivities of the Quepos horse festival and Miss Quepos contest! There's always something to do in between the maximum relaxation afforded by a stay at our Villa!

                                                              Nice stay!

                                                              Meredith F.

                                                              Very nice home in a small, quiet development just off the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park. We were a family of 4 adults and two children who wanted to explore the Park and Quepos, which was made easy by the frequent bus service. The pool was a real delight, as it was particularly hot while we were there. And a troop of squirrel monkeys did indeed scramble across our roof one morning. The hosts provided a nice outline of recommended restaurants, sights, and grocery stores.

                                                              We are so happy that our guests enjoyed their stay and hope we will have the opportunity to host them again during their next stay in Manuel Antonio!

                                                              Beautiful setting with great access

                                                              Mary B.

                                                              This two-level home was ideal for our family of six adults. The homes in Chaman are far enough apart to provide quiet and seclusion, with a beautiful setting and pool area. Chaman is only a block from the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio, with a bus stop at the corner. We did not have or need a car. Buses run frequently, and all the cab drivers were familiar with Chaman. We enjoyed our first meal only a few steps away at El Arodo--delicious food at reasonable prices, with dozens of monkeys entertaining us while we ate. We would definitely recommend this property to others.
