Property description

This superb vacation rental comprises of 2 remodeled villas set on half an acre of untouched rainforest. In total there are 3 Master Suites, each with it's own private bathroom, 3 large covered patio areas perfect for relaxing and enjoying the daily 'Monkey Show' (they might be a little late some days but they always come!) and of course, a wonderfully inviting private pool - with no prying eyes it's up to you how close to nature you want to get here!

With 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bath property is the epitome of private, luxury, jungle living. These 2 villas are literally resting in the rain forest surrounded by all the flora and fauna that makes Costa Rica famous and such a popular vacation destination.

In front of each villa is a large covered patio area with a large outdoor dining space, BBQ and rocking chairs. The villas are connected by a beautiful teardrop pool and surrounded by a spacious deck area. Just the place to relax after a hard day working on that vacation tan!

The entire property has been refurbished to an excellent standard from the modern custom fitted kitchen with granite worktops and new state of the art appliances & equipment, to the 400 thread count cotton sheets, orthopedic mattresses and hand painted artwork by renowned local artist, Adrian Valli.

Located near the town of Quepos on the Central Pacific Coast, about 2.5 - 3 hours drive from San Jose International Airport, it is easy to get here. It's a beautiful drive and even more relaxing if you take a private shuttle and start your vacation being treated like rock stars! Don't forget to stop to take the tour of the Crocodile Bridge at Tarcoles (about an hour from San Jose) and remember to stop for lunch at the seaside town of Jacó where you'll find some great bargains and delicious food!

Imagine your own private villa located within the heart of the rain forest next to one of the top 12 rated parks in the world, Manuel Antonio National Park!

At Villa Monos Bailarines (Home of the Dancing Monkeys), you are conveniently located within minutes of some of the most beautiful white sand beaches, and access to some of the best activities you can experience in a lifetime.

-We ask guests not to use our laundry services as our Costa Rican machines can be delicate. However, if you do have any personal items that you wish to have washed, please let us know and our maids would be happy to do it for you, free of charge.

Safe & exciting white water rafting, zip lining over the jungle canopy, crocodile tours, riding quads across rugged trails, surfing in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and great deep sea fishing beyond your wildest expectations! Catch a tuna or mahi mahi and have one of the many world class restaurants cook your catch that night for dinner!

Costa Rica is one of the best family or romantic getaways anywhere. If you are looking for an affordable adventure in a country so safe they don't even have an army(!), then catch the next flight to San Jose International Airport (SJO) and you'll be in your villa in time to watch the dancing monkeys while enjoying open air dining.

Costa Rica: Welcome to the most ecologically sound country on planet Earth.

Come for big adventures and lasting memories!

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I originally came to Costa Rica on a sabbatical from a busy job in London, England. I intended to stay 3 months but after 7 years I'm still here - What happened?! Well, Costa Rica happened. With so many amazing things to do & see it really is a hard place to leave, be warned! Now I get to live in paradise, hike in the jungle, swim & surf in our beautiful warm ocean, rappel down waterfalls, raft rapids, zip-line through the jungle canopy, and so much more. Lucky me!!! With the help of great friends, I manage vacation villas & run a boutique vacation planning business, My Vacation Costa Rica. We specialize in giving our guests the personal touch & between us, we guide you through all aspects of planning your vacation & make sure you only experience the best of the best - so come us in paradise and start enjoying the pura vida life!

Why El Cerro, Quepos, Costa Rica:
Villa Monos Bailarines is a truly delightful villa! Nestled in the jungle, it's surrounded by all of our wonderful Costa Rican flora and fauna. The private pool is the perfect place to cool off and watch the monkeys play. The villa has the added benefit of a second "villita", comprising of a large bedroom and private bathroom. This makes an ideally private space for extended family, nanny or friends to stay. The property as a whole really is a luxury oasis of peace & calm in nature!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The second villa provides a very private space for extended family members, nanny or friends to stay. *The property is incredibly secluded and is situated within a private secure development. There is some much outdoor space to enjoy you will have first hand experience of jungle living
