Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa surrounded by jungle and wildlife - 4 Bedrooms - 4 Baths - (Sleeps 17)
Of all villas in Manuel Antonio this beautiful 4-bedroom/ 4 bath Jungle Villa is the only villa which is one with Mother Nature and fully embedded in the surrounding rain forest.
Nestled under the huge surrounding trees, the open air living spaces are made of tropical hardwood and the trees around the 3 pools are part of the walking trails of the monkeys who regularly visit the villa. If you want to watch our wildlife thru the windows of an air conditioned room, this villa is not the place for you.
For some guests it might be difficult to be this close to nature. Before making a reservation you need to know what you are getting and should ask yourself some serious questions about what you want in a vacation rental. Our jungle is landscaped by mother nature. It is noisy with the sounds of wildlife and completely dark at night. There are bugs and other creatures that might wander into the open living area of the villa. And leaves will fall into the pool between the twice daily cleanings.
60% of our guests are repeat guests who keep coming back because of the villa's relaxed atmosphere where guests have a lot of freedom. The hidden location, privacy, 4000 square feet common living area, the visiting animals and the unobstructed view of the jungle and ocean are appealing to most of our guests. But not everyone appreciates this unique property and would be best served in a different style of accommodation. Our bedrooms have walls, doors and air conditioning however our living area is totally open without any walls and doors, but with roof.
For those that love and respect nature and want a truly unique vacation rental, then this beautiful location of the Jungle Villa is absolutely incomparable with other vacation rental properties in Manuel Antonio.
This is the most private villa in Manuel Antonio with ocean and jungle view, visiting monkeys, 3 pools, air-conditioning in the rooms, wifi, cable tv, 4 rooms, 3 staff. Paradise resort in the heart of Manuel Antonio where Ocean, Jungle and Western comfort meet. This villa is set in 2.2 private acres of lush tropical rain forest which surrounds the villa completely, giving total privacy for you and your guests.
The only way in and out the villa is a 250-feet long jungle bridge that connects the house with the rest of civilization. Under the huge 5500-square-feet roof you find a big open-air living space and bedrooms (with airco and locks). The open-air living space has a kitchen, living room, bar, dining area, tv room and terraces. From here you have an unobstructed view of nature: no windows, no doors, no walls.
What to expect in the Jungle Villa? The Jungle Villa is completely surrounded by real, all-natural tropical rain forest. There are no windows or walls between the jungle and the villa's living area. All bedrooms have walls, air-conditioning, locks and screen windows which can be opened for fresh oxygen and stop insects from coming in. Bedrooms are protected against direct sunlight by the surrounding trees which keeps rooms cool without the use of air-conditioning.
Our animals don't come every 15 minutes to the villa to give a show. They come and visit the villa at the times and places they choose and select.
The jungle villa is located in the tropical part of Costa Rica and wherever you look you will see it. To blend the villa with its surroundings, walls, rooms, doors and floors are decorated in natural colors: green and brown.
This is the only villa in Manuel Antonio with 2 full-time staff members in daytime to maintain the villa and pool area and to keep it clean. If you love pure nature, this villa is the perfect place for you. You will never live and sleep closer to Mother Nature than in the great Jungle Villa.

About Ad Latjes
Let the Dutch press speak about me: Latjes is an European entrepeneur who lived most of his life in The Netherlands.
He never worked for a boss, he is an independent thinker, and all his enterprises were first-of-a-kind.
In 1999 Latjes realizes he can maintain and operate his popular travel website from any location on planet Earth which has modern communication lines.
After considering many places in the World's Sunbelts, Latjes decides to move to one of the rare locations where the Ocean, the Jungle and Western Civilization meet each other: the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica in Central America
Ad Latjes purchased this villa in 1999
Why Ad Latjes chose Manuel Antonio
The moment me and my family saw this beautiful villa we fell in love with it and bought it within a few weeks.
At this great location, you have ocean view plus jungle view and the villa is also surrounded by huge trees and lush vegetation of the tropical rainforest. Many animals live around the villa. Most of the times you don't see them but you always hear they are there. Once inside the villa you feel far away from the rest of the World. And still you are steps away from the heart of Manuel Antonio.
What makes this villa unique
This unique villa is mostly rented to persons who come to Costa Rica because of the country's beautiful nature and the many animal types. If you are afraid a monkey takes a piece of banana from your plate (very rare) this is not your place. If you see this as a rare photo opportunity, you are very welcome in the great Jungle Villa.
Also, when you are just looking for a place to sleep, please contact any hotel in the area. We love to host guests who know to appreciate the unique, relaxed lifestyle in one of the greatest homes along the Pacific Ocean.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Ad makes his beautiful jungle home a welcoming haven for families, couples, or anyone traveling.
The house has an interesting unique layout that allows for easy mingling or quiet thought. The pools are truly beautiful with 3 levels and a waterfall.
We saw more wildlife in the jungle surrounding the villa than we did while hiking in Manuel Antonio.
The staff can tell you where to find hand rolled cigars, a pharmacy with a doctor for a child with swimmers ear, and the best place to get glasses/contacts after you loose them in the surf. A cook an be arranged for you, shopping can be down for you. There is daily maid service and a functional kitchen. They will tell you about the 3 grocery stores, 1 for the people that live there and is the least expensive, 1 that is also mostly local but has some nice extras and one that is mainly for tourist and has (at tourist prices) all the comfort foods of home.
The pizza place directly across the street will deliver or you can walk and eat there,the pizza is excellent! El Avion the airplane restaurant is also walking distance, pricey but very good and a must see. We walked to several other place but the there are no sidewalks - be careful
in short every member of our 2 families consistently picked Jungle Villa as the best place we stayed
