Are you looking for a modern home that offers many things to your Vacation?
This is it!
Luxurious, Ocean-view private home with easy access. The home has a modern and open floor design, an updated terrace to offer you outdoor living, an infinity pool and great Ocean and Sunset views.
Concierge: We offer 24/7 concierge services.
Location: Just 25 minutes South of the local Airport and the most Popular National Park Manuel Antonio. Flying into San Jose? The home is approximately 3 1/2 hour drive along the Coastal Highway.
Location and Arrival: The home is conveniently located in a small town called Matapalo, a short drive off Highway 34, the main Coastal Highway that runs between Quepos and Dominical. Your co-host Josue will meet you at a popular restaurant, called “La Langoste Feliz” (The Happy Lobster). This restaurant comes up on Google Maps if you search by that name. Please let Josue know what time you will arrive so that he can meet you and take you to the home.
What’s around? If you enjoy experiencing local culture while still enjoying all the comforts of a modern home then you’ve come to the right place!
Surfing, Boogie Boarding: There is surfing and boogie boarding at the beach in Matapalo or enjoy world class surfing at Dominical, just a 15mn drive South on Highway 34. There is also a supermarket, restaurants and cute shops there.
Just looking to relax or swim with young kids? Try going to Playa Linda, another local beach, for some variety. Directions: walk East on the beach from Matapalo Beach (or take a 2mn drive South) until you see 2 cell towers - turn right and you will find Playa Linda.
Zip lining/Zip Rail: There are great zip lines at many spots. You will find billboards with Zip Line offerings all along the Coastal Highway. There is now a zip rail, a new invention in Manuel Antonio.
Jungle Tours: There is a jungle night tour with great reviews in Manuel Antonio. They speak English/German/French.
Favorite spots to visit: Manuel Antonio Park, Dominical, Playa Ballena and Uvita (amazing coffee shop there!)
Least Favorite Spots to Visit: Quepos - It is hot, crowded and have yet to have a good meal there. But all conveniences (stores, a clinic, dentist, and all municipal offices) are there. Otherwise it’s just a place to pass on the way to Manuel Antonio.
BUGS: Costa Rica is teaming with wildlife. Some of that unwelcome wildlife (bugs) often makes it into our home. There all kinds of bugs here, from tiny to large ones. Flies, spiders, geckos, even scorpions. Most of them are harmless, but please exercise caution around any insect with which you are not familiar. Shake out your towels and check your shoes before putting them on, (That is life in the Jungle!)
Hospital & Pharmacy: Max Teran Valls is a modern, well equipped hospital with friendly staff just off the highway (on the East side) about a 15mn drive North, toward Quepos. A Pharmacy is located right across the street from the Hospital, and another one inside the hospital.
Laundry: There is a washer and dryer in the laundry room. There is washing detergent available for your use. Please remember to empty the lint compartment after using the dryer.
Security: Overall Matapalo is a sleepy, safe area. Unfortunately, like many beach towns, there is an element of petty thievery. In order to provide a safe environment for you, there are a number of security measures in place: wire fencing around the property, an alarm system and cameras (outdoor only) and safes to keep your valuables and passport(s) in. To be on the safe side, please do not leave valuables around unattended and don’t bring valuables to the beach.
Water: The local water from the tap is fine to drink. If you have a sensitive stomach, purchasing filtered water may be a good idea.
Contact Info: If you have any questions or need any help at all please feel free to get in touch. Text or call Josue or email Stacy.
