Casa Mono Congo is a handicapped accessible, green-powered, modern 4-bedroom, 5.5 bathroom 3,000 square foot vacation home built with the Costa Rican wildlife AND you in mind. Our home is nestled in the jungle with visits from three types of monkeys, sloths, lizards, iguanas, toucans & numerous varieties of birds, butterflies and other exotic wildlife. The howler monkeys sleep in the trees above our home. The white-face monkeys & squirrel monkeys visit our terraces almost every day!
To enjoy our ecological paradise, we have built our home with bi-functional renewable energy from wind and sun. Solar panels generate electricity in the daytime and a wind-generator generates electricity from the ocean breezes. We are also connected to the local electric company so when we produce more electricity than we use, we send it back to the grid and when there is little sun and no wind we use electricity stored in our batteries or from the grid (most of Costa Rica's energy is produced from hydro-generators.)
When you stay in our home you will have all of the comforts of your home. Our home offers 3 levels of living space. The common areas include a social area with a 42-inch plasma flat screen television and a dining area that seats 8 people comfortably. The 3rd floor includes a covered terrace with bar area that includes a mini-fridge and ice machine. The fully equipped kitchen has top of the line stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and an island breakfast bar. Amenities include a full-size refrigerator, icemaker, dishwasher, oven, microwave, stovetop, coffee maker & grinder, blender juicer, toaster, dinnerware and utensils. Everything you need to prepare meals or be served meals by one of our outstanding chefs/cooks.
Our home has 4 bedrooms each with a Swiss Comfort Sleep System euro-king bed using NASA technology mattresses. These beds are electronically adjustable to fit the individual sleeper. Each bedroom also has a walk-in closet, bathroom, outdoor balcony and a flat screen LCD television. Our home also has 2 sofas that convert to large twin+ beds (sleeping 1 adult or 2 small children) and we also will provide an additional bed for the master bedroom suite if the number of guests is 11-12. The maximum number of guests allowed is 12.
The main floor terrace includes a 27' x 9' pool and room to relax in the sun or shade. 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 the fish you caught while deep-sea fishing earlier in the day.
The temperatures are generally in the 80s F during the day and 70F at night, but air conditioning is available in the bedrooms if you feel the need to use it. Local telephone service and WiFi are available for our guests at no additional charge.
Daily maid service (Mon-Sat) is provided and a multi-lingual house manager is available to welcome you, assist you with tour planning or meet any of your vacation needs. A washer and dryer are on site, and the maid will do your laundry if you ask for an extra fee.
Casa Mono Congo is located on a private side road but near restaurants, beautiful beaches, shopping and nightlife. When you schedule tours, they will deliver you to and from our home. If you rent a vehicle, parking is provided. Taxis and buses are abundant on the main road, if you decide not to rent a vehicle.
Manuel Antonio is a 3 hour drive through mountains and along coastline from San Jose. SANSA offers several flights daily from San Jose to Quepos, 20 minutes by air.
Casa Mono Congo is the perfect Costa Rican getaway.
For larger groups of 12-21, Casa Mono Congo may also be rented in combination with our other vacation rental home Casa Mono Titi.
