Manzanillo House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This new, beautifully hand-crafted home is located on the southeastern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and nestled in the Gandoca Manzanillo National Wildlife and Marine Refuge. It sits just 50 meters from the shoreline of one of the most remote and unspoiled beaches in Costa Rica. The tropical rainforest of the Talamanca Mountains serves as the home's backdrop.
This home is not a 'lodge or camp' house unlike the few rentals available in the refuge. It is the landowner's personal vacation home and was built to enjoy all the comforts of home with a oceanfront setting. Fall asleep listening to the gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea and wake to the chatter of monkeys in the yard. Enjoy meals on the huge patio and decks with the sight and sound of the sea as your entertainment.
This is a two-level structure level. For small families the two-bedroom upper level will accommodate four guests. For a large family or group, both levels will give extra privacy for up to 8 persons. Since the home is located in the protected Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife and Marine Refuge there are no motorized vehicles in the refuge to disturb you or wildlife.
Guests, however, may drive to the home to bring in luggage and other provisions. If the creek at the entrance of the refuge is too high to drive across (rarely) arrangements will be made to get your luggage to and from the house.
The home is a beautiful, scenic drive through the Braulio National Park. Past spectacular waterfalls, mountains, and rainforest areas. It takes approximately four hours from the San Jose Juan Santamarie International Airport in San Jose to reach Manzanillo.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My friends and I had a great time in this beautiful home right on the beach! We can't think of one negative thing to say, except it wasn't enough time to experience all there was to offer.
The house was very clean and as comfortable as our own. The caretakers were friendly and helpful. Fishing, rafting and private dinner parties were arranged by them without difficulty or much expense. We would feel fortunate to be able to return to this home in the future!
