About Daniel Deverell
William Deverell, the award-winning Canadian crime writer, is a long-time resident of British Columbia's Gulf Islands, and he also lives and works much of the year in this home in Costa Rica, which is named after his late wife, Tekla Deverell. They built their dream villa in 1983 in the jungle of the fast-developing tourist hotspot of Manuel Antonio. VRBO doesn't allow external websites, so if you'd like to know more about the owner, Google William Deverell. The picture is of his son who is currently managing this listing from Brooklyn New York.
Why Daniel Deverell chose Manuel Antonio
This was an unspoiled paradise in the 1980s, when William and Tekla discovered it. Arguably, the area boasts the finest collection of beaches in the tropical world. Manuel Antonio now sparkles with luxury hotels, homes and condos and is fast becoming a rainforest riviera.
What makes this Villa unique
Peace, beauty, friends. Monkeys, birds, flowering tropical trees. Incredible views from the rise on which the villa was built upon five acres of pristine jungle. A climate that never gets too hot (it's soothed by breezes off the ocean) and is always warm at night. A beautiful sky, tropical sunrises and sunsets, warm torrential rains in the green season, dry cooling winds in the dry season. Mangoes in May. Grapefruit in November. Bananas all year round. Papayas, pineapples, lemons, limes, avocados -- you will be surrounded by organic fruits.
