Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps up to 18

For the third straight year, CasaTolteca has won the 'Top Vacation Rental - Manuel Antonio' award from TripAdvisor/FlipKey!

In fact, CasaTolteca has remained one of the most popular and most requested home in Manuel Antonio for the past 8 years with good reason. There are plenty of beautiful homes in Manuel Antonio, but ONLY CasaTolteca has:

1) Perfect location... close to the beach as well as the town (there are only two large homes in town that you can comfortably walk to the public beach where you will find the entrance to the National Park).

2) Complete privacy with no visible neighbors.

3) Perfect layout for groups with 4 living spaces... one large great room for everyone to get together when you want, and three other living areas for everyone to have their own private space when needed.

4) Horizontal layout that rolls up into the rainforest, which gives you that great indoor/outdoor feeling that you are living in the rain-forest, not just looking over it.

Most Popular Home in Manuel Antonio: CasaTolteca is more than a home, it's a private luxury estate nestled up in the enchanted Manuel Antonio rain-forest. Perfect for large groups, CasaTolteca includes four fully equipped living suites including 2 large great rooms... large enough for weddings and family reunions.

Surrounded by lush rain-forest with no visible neighbors, exotic birds, monkeys, and other wildlife frequently visit CasaTolteca. Walk through our colorful butterfly garden and out our secure entrance gate and you can walk to over a dozen restaurants, bars, a private nature reserve, casinos, or to the beach in just minutes. You don’t need a car!

From virtually every corner of the estate, you have complete privacy. Enjoy the view of lush tropical rain-forest and stunning ocean vistas with no neighbors or distractions. Most other homes are built on narrow lots with neighbors just feet away. With CasaTolteca you do not feel confined to the indoors.

Extraordinary peace, privacy and seclusion: CasaTolteca is private and secure gated property which offers extraordinary peace, privacy and seclusion within the rain-forest. Frequent monkeys, sloths, flocks of toucans, and many spectacular lizards may be observed about the villa. Hundreds of species of birds have been spotted from our balconies.

Experience CasaTolteca now - its lush jungle setting and breathtaking ocean views are out of this world. Explore the many exciting attractions of this pristine coastal rain forest from one of the most pleasant and delightfully relaxing luxury havens in all of Central America.

Please allow us to help assure that you and your entire group enjoy a truly fabulous expedition in this incomparable tropical paradise. Contact us anytime. We will be happy to tell you more about Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio, and CasaTolteca. We look forward to hearing from you soon, and to eventually serving you at CasaTolteca!

'Thank you for the beautiful accommodations at Casa Tolteca. It was breathtaking and perfect in every way. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, clean, and spacious place to stay, with all the comforts of home. Every morning we were entertained by monkeys, out back and around the balconies. We also had a sloth hanging in one of the trees and of course several iguanas on the tree tops--it was fabulous. During our last evening, several toucans swooped by and landed in the tree over the pool. 'Your concierge was wonderful and the maid did a great job. We were greeted by them on Saturday with gorgeous flower arrangements and a huge basket of fresh fruit. The entire villa smelled of fresh flowers. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in and saw the view out over the lush rain forest and the pacific ocean and how perfect everything was. 'We saw more wildlife and beauty from our balcony then we did in the park. It was wonderful!

Hi Michael,



Sorry this email is so late in getting written, life has been very busy since returning from Costa Rica.



We, my family and friends, had an absolutely wonderful time staying at Casa Tolteca. Everybody LOVED the villa and the privacy it afforded. We can be a pretty loud group when we start telling stories and laughing but due to the set up we never feared disturbing the neighbors. The purpose of our trip was to surprise my brother, who lives in San Jose, for his 50th birthday. Our driver, William, was very accommodating in helping us pull off this surprise. To say the least my brother was shocked and speechless.



Thomas did a great job setting up the bus service, chef service and all of our excursions. He was very responsive and helpful during our stay. I am sure you are happy to have him as the concierge for your property. The chef service along with the quality and presentation of the food exceeded my expectations. What a fantastic group of people, we were all so happy that we opted to have them make dinner for us on 2 occasions. Very reasonably priced as well. The companies you utilize for excursions are top notch and their staffs really helped to enhance our enjoyment of the area.



Everyone in our group fell in love with Costa Rica and especially Casa Tolteca. We arrived at the villa late Friday night and by Saturday morning everyone was already talking about coming back. By Monday we had all decided to make this biennial family reunion and of course plan ahead of time to ensure we can get accommodations at Casa Tolteca. We will return!



Thank you again for everything, the entire experience was at the very top of my favorite vacations taken to date.



Regards,

Nancy and the rest of the gang.

After year's of traveling through Asia and Europe, Costa Rica was my first travel through the Americas. I quickly fell in love with the people and the incredible beauty of Manuel Antonio, purchasing an estate as my home-away-from-home in 2006. After extensive renovations, I'm proud that I have made CasaTolteca the most rented home in the country... unfortunately, that means I rarely get to visit. So recently, I purchased another acre of land to build my retirement home in a few years.

Michael Cunningham purchased this villa in 2006

Costa Rica has many beautiful areas, but none more spectacular or famous than Manuel Antonio. Manuel Antonio has the best of everything Costa Rica has to offer in one place. While other small towns of Costa Rica are growing too fast with tall towers and fast food restaurants, I will always have the natural beauty and privacy of Manuel Antonio National Park right next to me.

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME TIME

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely awesome time in Costa Rica, and did not want to come home! It is hard to get all of our family together in one place as they are scattered across the U.S. And in Japan! Everyone was thrilled with the accommodations, and the location of the house was perfect as everyone was very comfortable with jumping on the bus! The house is perfectly arranged, especially for a group like ours, and was extremely well equipped!

We loved the upper deck and the views, and our resident iguana. We had a wonderful Christmas dinner prepared by your staff, who were delightful! And I cannot say enough about how great Thomas was. He was so responsive, capable, and personable. You have a real gem in Thomas!!! The house exceeded our expectations, and I will definitely recommend it to others who may be interested!

CASA TOLTECA IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing! The house & the staff are wonderful! Beautiful view! Perfect vacation house! We would not want to stay anywhere else! Wonderful time had by all!

Thank you for all the great experiences we shared at Casa Tolteca. Casa Tolteca is absolutely beautiful! The house manager was so helpful as well as the rest of the staff. They took care of us for the entire trip and even welcomed us with a big basket of fruits. We also loved their private chefs. Their food taste better and the price was less than the restaurants in town.

You can walk to the beach from the house, but it is about a 15 minute walk down hill and much longer coming back up to the house from the beach. But we just took the public bus up the hill in 2 minutes for just 50 cents.

The sunsets and ocean views were a great way to wind down the day. It does get dark early but that makes it nice to sit and watch with a glass of wine before dinner. The wildlife around the house was also amazing. Monkeys everyday, and all kinds of birds. We even saw a sloth with her baby.

We highly recommend Casa Tolteca to anyone.

BEST HOME IN MANUEL ANTONIO

  • 5 of 5
This trip was our second time to Costa Rica. We loved our first trip so much we returned to Costa Rica not even a year later. Last trip, we stayed at a different home which was nice, but this trip we stayed at Casa Tolteca. Our experience at Casa Totleca was even better! The location, views, and service were a notch above. Casa Tolteca and this country is absolutely beautiful - its people very friendly. Between our two trips, we have spent total of 14 nights in Costa Rica - its still not enough. So much left to see!! We had a wonderful experience at Casa Tolteca! Monkeys were amazing & the chefs were the best. We look forward to another vacation at this beautiful home! A+

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for a great time. What a treat this house was. The view, location and staff were all perfect. I can't emphasis enough how much we loved the staff. They took care of all our needs and their services were superb. We loved the Marasol, the chef! Thank you for the memories we all made here and take home. We had a fabulous vacation with our family and 2 grandchildren. Perfect for family. Cooks are highly recommended. Activities - we like horse back riding the best!

CasaTolteca is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, one of the closest homes to the world-famous National Park. Surrounded by rain-forest, just walk through our private butterfly garden and out the front gate to easily walk to all the best restaurants, casinos, clubs, bars and discos.

Several world-class beaches and the famous National Park are just a two minute drive or ten minute walk from the villa.

All this means that you may not need to rent a vehicle during your stay at CasaTolteca, since inexpensive cabs and public buses frequently pass by its main entry gate throughout the day and evening. The CasaTolteca complex is spread out horizontally, not vertically like most other houses in the area, giving an open feeling that you are on a large property, not just in a house.

CasaTolteca is surrounded by rain-forest and gardens, not other houses, giving you complete privacy, except, of course, for the monkeys, birds and other animals that frequently visit the house.

Other Activities: zip line; horseback ride; jet ski; etc

Golf: The nearest golf course is about 45 minutes away from Manuel Antonio
