Manuel Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Stay in one of the 4 Costa Rican homes featured on the television special 'Around the World in 80 Homes' on the Fine Living Channel. Our home is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, not 'in the Manuel Antonio area.' Please see the map below for details.

Casa Mono Titi is a Spanish-style home with a Pacific Ocean view. The home is nestled in the jungle with visits from monkeys, sloth, lizards, iguanas, birds, butterflies and other exotic wildlife. However, you are near beaches, restaurants, shopping and other tour activities. Tour companies retrieve and deliver directly to and from our home.

You will have all of the comforts of your home. Amenities include a full modern kitchen with fullsize refrigerator, icemaker, dishwasher, oven, microwave, stovetop, coffee maker & grinder, blender juicer, toaster, dinnerware and utensils.

Our home offers a dining room with vaulted ceilings, a living area to relax with friends, 2 master bedrooms with private baths, 2 guest bedrooms with a shared bath, a den with cable TV and 8 ceiling fans throughout the home. We offer one king bed, two queen beds, one double bed and a day bed. Each bedroom has individual A/C units so you may control the temperature for sleeping.

Step outside of the home to enjoy your own private mosaic tiled pool surrounded by a beautiful large (1260 square feet) tiled terrace. You will be hidden away in our lushly landscaped property and enjoy total privacy as you listen to the Pacific Ocean and stargaze while you relax. Use the BBQ gas grill to prepare dinner or ask us to bring in a cook for an in-house dinner.

The temperatures are generally in the 80s during the day and 70s at night, but air conditioning is available in the bedrooms if you feel the need to use it. Local telephone service, a computer and broadband (high speed) are now available for our guests at no additional charge. We also provide WiFi capabilities from our computer to your laptop for emailing your friends from the pool or terrace.

Daily maid service is provided and a multi-lingual house manager is available to welcome you, assist you with tour planning or meet any of your needs. Laundry service is also available for a small fee to our maid.

Casa Mono Titi is located on a private side road but near restaurants, beautiful beaches, shopping and nightlife. When you schedule tours, they will pick you up at the house. If you rent a vehicle, parking is provided. Inexpensive taxis and buses are abundant on the main road, if you decide not to rent a vehicle.

Casa Mono Titi is also available for long-term rental (6 months or more) at a deeply discounted rate. Please inquire for additional information and availability.

Manuel Antonio is a 3 hour drive through mountains and oceanside from San Jose. SANSA offers several flights daily from San Jose to Quepos, 20 minutes by air.

Casa Mono Titi is the perfect Costa Rican getaway.

For larger groups of 12-21, Casa Mono Titi may also be rented in combination with our other home Casa Mono Congo. See VRBO listing #170940 for additional details. We are the owners of these properties and we are not a 'here today, gone tomorrow' management company.

About The Owner

Map is best viewed using Hybrid option. Our home is 400 meters off the main road and roughly 1600 meters (1 mile) from the beach 'as the toucan flies'.

Prior to living in Costa Rica, we lived in Chicago and owned a residential rental property business for 12 years. Suffering through many Chicago winters, it was an easy transition from the residential rental business up North to vacation rentals in Costa Rica. We built a home near Puriscal in the mountains of Costa Rica in 2006 and sold our final property in Chicago in 2007 completing our permanent move here. Although, we live in the mountains about 1 hour from San Jose, we visit our beach homes in Manuel Antonio when they are available to us.

We are actively involved in the communities of Manuel Antonio and Puriscal. We sponsored the purchase and installation of a 10-computer lab for the local elementary school in Piedades. We are currently providing full university scholastic scholarships to 5 local neighborhood youth. We have sponsored several local football teams with uniforms. We are active members of several ecological conservation groups. We love Costa Rica and believe in giving back as much or more than we receive from living in our new adopted country.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Manuel Antonio Area

We first visited Costa Rica Christmas 1997. We immediately fell in love with the country, its people and of course, its climate. Having traveled around the world, seldom had we returned to the same location but that was to change. We visited Manuel Antonio each year for Christmas from 1998 to 2000. In 2000 we purchased our first home and in 2005 we built our 2nd home. We share our homes with others so they may experience the wildlife and magic of Costa Rica in a private setting with close family and friends.

We chose Manuel Antonio because it provides more flora & fauna diversity than any other location in Costa Rica. The climate in Manuel Antonio is near perfection no matter what time of year you visit. Even in the driest month of April, the flora is green and fresh, unlike to the northwest area of the country. Guests comment that they see more wildlife from our terraces than from any other location during their vacations. Our guests are our best advertisers.

What makes this house unique

Like many homes in Manuel Antonio, our homes sit on the hillside between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, overlooking the jungle and Pacific Ocean. However, unlike most other homes, we are on the very edge of the unspoiled jungle (see map) and your view has no other homes, roads, electrical lines or other obstacles to distract you. The monkeys, sloth & birds come right to our terraces & trees. The photo opportunities and memories are incomparable.

We hope you select one or both of our homes for your stay and have the experience we have had that led us to move to Costa Rica.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the accommodations at Geminis del Pacifico. The home, the view, all it had to offer was wonderful. We will recommend to others that may decide to go to Costa Rica and do plan on returning. Our schedule is very hectic so it may not be for a year or two. We had a guide for the week so did not call on the House Manager very often other than to see how to dial home. He was very helpful. Thanks and we will contact you upon our return Manuel Antonio. Thanks

The Monkey House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight really enjoyed this house. The house was clean, modern and had ample space for our group. The true highlight was seeing the monkey's jump from tree to tree just off of the patio and our 7 year old daughter loved the pool!

Maykol was a great property manager. We did many of the tours and activities he recommended and were not disappointed. Activities included Manual Antonio N. P. guided hike, horseback ride, canyoning, parasailing, surf lessons, and a private chef dinner.

There are two staircases in the house to access all the bedrooms and there is a larger staircase to get from the parking lot to the house. The other itsmycasa.com house is at the same level as the parking lot. The hill is steep to get up to the main road but our group ranging in age from 7 to 77 walked up it with no problem.

Overall a great experience at Casa Mono Titi!

Awesome house in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything I thought it would be and more! Right in the jungle but still an amazing view of the ocean. Although there were monkeys everywhere they were never a nuisance. You will be woken up early by the Howler monkeys but it is such a cool experience. There are restaurants in walking distance but the hill is pretty steep. It's too far to walk to the park but taxis are easy to find. I would go back again for sure! Our party of 7 truly enjoyed it.

Incredible views!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with my sister and her family at this amazing house. We truly had the most memorable vacation. Every morning we were greeted by Howler, Squirrel, and white faced monkeys. The view of the ocean was spectacular and we were away from the crowds. The house was spotless everyday because of the housekeeper!!! Terry was always so helpful during the entire process of planning this trip!!! We are planning a trip for this December and while we like to go to different places, we are considering doing the same trip again. Make sure you take a look at the memory book-it is really fun to read about previous travelers experiences and write your own!!!

Amazing views, amenities & wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Casa Mono Titi. Views of the ocean from every room, our own pool and deck with hammock and lounge chairs, excellent privacy (we couldn't really see another house even though there are some closeby) The house has a fully equipped kitchen and all linens and towels were changed daily by the staff that cleaned up while we were out exploring Costa Rica. And we didn't even have to go far to experience monkeys (they came swinging by multiple times during our stay, running around the deck and moving from tree to tree, really delightful!) We also got to see the Jesus Christ lizard hanging out on the pool deck and blue morpho butterflies on the property. Truly amazing. All of that and wifi!

SO GLAD TO BE BACK

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed here for the 5th time this year and we are so grateful to be able to travel to this paradise each year. The staff at the house took such good care of us- like we were a part of their family. If you want to experience paradise is a beautiful home overlooking the jungle and the ocean- this is the place to go!! Pura Vida!

Casa Mono Titi

  • 5 of 5

Visited Casa Mono Titi with my 4 adult children for a last minute Christmas vacation and had a wonderful time. I always wanted to visit Costa Rica and my only regret was not staying longer. The owners were very helpful while making the reservations (especially with only a weeks notice!) as well as ensuring our transportation and tour choices were set. The house was neat and clean with plenty of room and the location was perfect for all our Manuel Antonio tours. (You want monkeys by the pool after sunset ... this is the place). We chose to rent an SUV but all the tour operators provide vans and our favorite place to eat was at the top of the hill with a grocery store just down the road so a car really wasn't needed. We used the tour providers listed in Trip Advisor and highly recommend Amigos del Rio for their rafting trip down the pristine Savegre River as well as the jungle zip line. When visiting the national park go early, hire a nature guide to see the wildlife (even sloths) and bring a picnic lunch to enjoy the beautiful beach at the end of the tour. Over the years we have visited many places and this was a favorite. I believe the owners also rent the adjoining home so this would be great for large groups. Bonus- no mosquitos- how do you go to the jungle with no bugs
