Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description
Open concept Living/ Dining, 3 bedrooms on 3 levels, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 7.
Forbes Magazine has just named Manuel Antonio as one of the WORLD'S best National Parks! Read on:
'A stunning combination of beaches and coral reefs, perfect for snorkeling and exploring the area’s famous tangle of mangroves. Rainforest jungles remain untouched habitats for Three-toed Sloths, iguanas, Central American squirrel monkeys and birds of extraordinary colors. One of Costa Rica’s smallest national parks, Manuel Antonio is nevertheless one of its most popular, with activities ranging from white-water rafting and sea kayaking to horseback riding on one of the park’s four beaches'
All this awaits you at Villa Tekla. And so do the monkeys that scramble through the trees outside our distinctive ecologically designed home. Twenty-metre lap pool, totally private. Free wi-fi high-speed Internet, and maid and gardening and pool services. For complete details about Villa Tekla, with photos, maps, rates, check out www.villatekla.com
Support a healthy, green environment: We are contributors to several environmental organizations and particularly invite naturalists, birders, and those concerned with keeping our planet green and healthy, and support the Costa Rican government's initiatives to this end. So we offer a 15% discount to other such supporters. We have lived part time in Costa Rica since 1980, and can help renters with most if not all of their travel plans and we have a wide knowledge of the country's tourist areas, parks, and particularly local attractions. Renters should not hesitate to ask questions. For those interested in flora and fauna: coatis, sloths, tree iguanas, anteaters, squirrels, colorful frogs and geckos, and other fauna visit from the National Park. At night the lawn below the house twinkles with fireflies. Wake up to the reverberant trumpeting of howler monkeys, to a serenade of tanagers, thrushes and flycatchers, and colorful songsters galore. All while you enjoy our new 20-metre lap pool.
A writer's home: This property has been the seasonal home of Tekla Deverell, psychologist, and William Deverell, novelist since the early 1980s, so we are among the original extranjeros in the Quepos-Manuel Antonio area, and our villa has been home to many artists and writers (to whom we offer a 15% discount as well) and many others who are just seeking to escape for a holiday to this amazing paradise. If you wish to know more about us, Google William Deverell, author of 16 novels and one non-fiction work. See www.deverell.com.
Extras: Villa Tekla pays for all gardening and maid services by our trustworthy and valued employees who attend to the house and property twice weekly, and all utilities including cable.
