Property description

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio National Park, this 2 bedroom 2 bath home, re-purposed from a 727, has been named by Travel and Leisure, HGTV, Strange Homes and Animal Planet as one of the most unique and fantastic experiences in the jungles of Costa Rica.

The airplane, nestled beside the rain forest and beside our Costa Verde II building, is perched on a custom-built platform 15 meters (50 feet) up from the ground. At this height, our guests enjoy scenic ocean and jungle views from both the airplane windows and the handcrafted decks that has been built atop its wings. The inside of the plane has been decorated using lovingly restored local teak wood and Costa Verde‘s renowned innovation. This has resulted in a beautiful wood paneled fuselage with three queen size beds, two bathrooms, TV, AC, kitchenette and safety deposit.

Wake to the roar of the howler monkeys, and have coffee with the playful spider and white faced monkeys to start your day. Fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV, a total of 3 Queen beds and 2 large outdoor over the wing deck/ balconies of polished teak and handcrafted furnishings make this flight of fancy a truly unforgettable vacation home. Monkeys , sloths, acoutis, and over 184 species of birds will become your neighbors, greeting you in your private jungle paradise.

You are a short downhill walk to the white sand beach and the shops and nightlife of Manuel Antonio.
Adjacent to Costa Verde Hotel, you will enjoy the 3 pools, one is adult only with a pool bar, 4 restaurants, maid service and tour/ concierge services within a few minutes walk or a call to the bilingual front desk. Free Internet. The closest airport is Quepos, or San Jose International airport which is aprox 2.5 hours drive. Arrangements can be made to pick you up at either.

Pez Vela Marina in Quepos is home to some of the best sport fishing in Costa Rica, with daily charters, catamaran cruises, and private sunset sails . Several great ocean front restaurants in the marina have become the place to enjoy some world class sports fishing and be part of the international boating community that docks in Marina Pez Vela.

Waterfalls, ATV's, Hiking, Zip Lining, Manuel Antonio National Park, surfing, bird watching, jungle explorations are all part of the Manuel Antonio experience for the nature lover. Or do nothing, lay by the pool, have a massage on your private 727 and listen to sounds of the jungle with a cold drink in hand. Click on our video for a close up look at the interiors and views.
