Enjoy staying at this luxurious and modern home with four-bedrooms and three-baths. Located near the heart of Manuel Antonio this will give you many opportunities to explore the town’s restaurants and small shops. With our help, you will have the best vacation possible this coming travel season.


The high-ceiling Great Room—including a living room with flat-screen TV, and full, modern kitchen—opens out to an 8-person dining area in the expansive, covered terrace. Extra dining space is available at the kitchen breakfast bar

The master suite is furnished with a king-size bed and has a private bath with an open-air tropical rain shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have queen-size beds and share a large bath. The bedrooms are spacious and air-conditioned. (Two of them open to the terrace.) A private studio apartment on the lower level features a queen bed and its own full bath.

After dinner, drinks or dessert can be served on the pool deck, where you just might see some of the local monkeys playing in the trees. Don’t be surprised if our natural alarm clock, the howler monkey, urges you to get up and get going with his deep-throated howl as the sun rises. Don’t worry; he has a snooze alarm! Take a cool morning dip in the 50 ft. saltwater pool, and enjoy a cup of famous Costa Rican coffee on the terrace.

Hotels and markets are all nearby, and the many restaurants in the area offer local fare, exotic tropical dishes, and fresh seafood. You can even get a delicious hamburger with all the trimmings.

Activities in the Area

If you want a little adventure in your life, your Manuel Antonio vacation has much to offer. Try dolphin watching and snorkeling from your catamaran. Scuba diving, parasailing, and jet skiing are all just minutes away. Explore the Costa Rican rainforest’s mystique and beauty by zip-lining, hiking or horseback riding to a waterfall. Or try an ATV tour through the mountains. Whitewater rafting on one of the many rivers near Manuel Antonio is an exhilarating experience, and not to be missed by the adventurous traveler. If an eco-tour is more your speed, there are many reserves to visit, and, of course, there’s the world-famous Manuel Antonio National Park. The best part: you have a beautiful villa to go home to when you’re done. Pura Vida!
