Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

7 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, sleeps 18

This extraordinary cliff-side home gives you the sensation of living in tree house and rents from 5 to 7 bedrooms. Forty feet above the jungle, the living room is open on 3 sides to allow the rainforest sights and sounds to envelope you. Toucans and hummingbirds visit the tropical foliage and three species of monkeys leap from tree to tree right outside your balcony. You'll feel like you're in the Garden of Eden. The ceiling is constructed of 24-foot post and beams to maximize the year-round cool ocean breezes and protect the living room from the tropical sun and afternoon rain showers. From the balconies, you can see the peninsula that forms Manuel Antonio National Park and the small pacific islands surrounding it.

The main house is four stories high and is reminiscent of an observation tower. The environmental impact is minimized with the small (600 sq. ft) footprint, but the top opens out to 1,200 square feet of beautifully designed living space. In all, there are five stories and there is an elevator for your convenience.

Costa Rica's mild climate makes it possible to leave the great room sides open to the tropical ambiance, without walls to obstruct the surrounding paradise. This is truly harmonious living by design.

Every feature of this thoughtfully designed home was created from indigenous materials and created by local craftsmen. The inspiration for the home is a Japanese Zen garden, as can be seen in the Asian style roof reminiscent of 17th century minka folk houses.

To complete your unforgettable vacation, you will have the support of a full-service management company. The home is fully staffed including your own house maids who will keep everything in top condition and will do daily laundry. A gourmet chef is also included to prepare unforgettable tropical meals in your own home. Your concierge will assist with any travel arrangements, tours or other details that will make your stay in Manuel Antonio completely stress free.

Master Suite and Bath: The 500-square foot master suite is one level down from the grand salon. Its large private bathroom has a double headed shower and stone bath with jacuzzi. It features a large wraparound ocean view terrace, plenty of sofa seating and king size bed.

Master suite, baths and other bedrooms: There are two bedrooms on the level below with jungle and pool views, private bathrooms. One has a king bed, and the other has a queen bed.

There is another king size bedroom on the pool level overlooking the garden and pool. It has a private bathroom with a sunken tub.

Jungle pool and pool house: The jungle pool is a natural style oasis, with a rock stair entry, twenty-foot waterfall and beautiful tropical gardens. It has a large play area and a lap lane that can be used at the same time.

The pool house is one of the most relaxing parts of the home. Its 3 sofas can be converted into a king bed and twin, or three twin beds. Great for open-air sleeping, it is always cooled by the ocean breeze and a light blanket is all that's needed. The back of the pool house is nestled into the trees, while the front opens to the pool and waterfall.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Casa Vista Azul is the BEST!! I've never in my life had a more relaxing vacation then this one. Manuel Antonio is a beautiful Costa Rican town with sincerely friendly locals. From our ocean view living room, Playa Manuel Antonio is just as gorgeous - we loved staring out at the stunning vista of blue ocean and green rainforest. The wildlife at the villa is too cool! We could hardly believe how close the monkeys came to the house! Pura Vida!

WOW! WOW! WOW! VIEWS + LUXURY FOR DAYS!

We stayed at Casa Vista Azul with a group of 11 friends. I rated this a 5 star for a reason. It was perfect. All of the rooms are comfortable and offer different perks. Our Chef Stephan catered to everyone's needs and introduced us to new foods. He even threw in a little surprise for our last meal! We saw whales breaching and tail slapping for about 1.5 hours on our second morning from the main level. It was the perfect setting for entertaining all of us. The pool is perfect. Overall the whole house is extremely peaceful and romantic. We were surprised to find the insects of the jungle were not a major issue at all. This house was designed extremely well to deal with the rains. We never had to close anything. Just enjoy the sound of the rain. Monkeys came right up to us on the main level. Despite having read that they could be mean and steal, which I'm not saying the are incapable of, we had a pleasant experience with them. One even danced for us! :) We locked ourselves out of the master bedroom once and the Concierge had to come save the day. We used the Pool house Extra room option and the person staying in that room said it was terrific.

THANK YOU ESCAPE VILLAS!


The road to the house is in pretty bad shape. Cabs kind of grumble under their breath as they drive down it. Walking to the casino, bars, and restaurants from the house is possible. The beach however is too far to walk everyday. I did it once and it isn't too bad of a trek, but you won't want to do it everyday. I'd say 30-40 minutes walking. Downhill there, uphill coming home. Cabs were about 1000 colones or $2 per person from the house to the public beach. Sometimes they didn't know where Casa Vista Azul was, but the usually knew where to find "Villas del Parke" (*spelling)

The local grocery store will deliver for no charge even in the rain

no problems with the local water.

Best surfing spot we found was on the public beach all the way down the right side...way down there!

Best Snorkel and most secluded beach spot we found was Bienza Beach

Quepos nightlife is pretty sketchy, fun for the adventurous though. We did not encounter any problems, but I feel like we could have.

You will be offered drugs in manuel antonio and quepos.

** two of our guys lost their ATM cards at local ATMs. after your transaction remove your card quickly as the machines suck the cards back in really shortly after and it's a pain to get them back from the bank.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the well thought out review outlining details of the home and the area! We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that the monkeys were on their best behavior. The road situation in Costa Rica is beyond our control, but we encourage our guests to sit back and enjoy the gentle massage - it's all part of the experience. Thanks again for the review! Pura Vida from The Escape Villa Team
