Overview

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Casa Añoro is one of the newest luxury homes in Manuel Antonio. Casa Añoro rests on one of the highest points in town in an exclusive community of multi-million dollar homes.

Añoro is a unique word with no direct translation. It is pronounced 'ahn-your-o' and in Spanish refers to deep desire for something missing in your heart.

Casa Añoro was designed by Michael Cunningham who has owned homes and managed dozens of properties in Manuel Antonio for many years, including the award winning CasaTolteca. His new home, Casa Añoro, will become his permanent home in May next year. This is the only chance you have to see Casa Añoro before it is taken off the rental market and becomes the owners personal home.

Because this will be his permanent home, Casa Añoro is filled with high end details. To preserve these high end touches, we do have a minimum age of 15 for any guest in the home.

Indoor / Outdoor Living:

Open the entire 20 foot wall of windows separating the indoor great room with the outdoor terrazza to give you almost 1000 square feet of great-room living area, completely covered by beautiful slabs of exotic coral stone flooring. Take two steps down to the pool area for even more lounging space.

Of course, the entire home does have air-conditioning, but you will probably never need it since the home was designed to capture the breezes and sweep them through the house.

Gourmet Kitchen:

The owners love to eat, drink, and entertain and have actually attended culinary school. The kitchen is equipped to please any chef. The 13 feet of counter space contains Bosch, Kitchen Aid, and Decor appliances. In addition, there is a 9 foot island to prepare and serve food. Of course, the wine refrigerator is available for your use.

Limited Stairs:

Manuel Antonio is a very hilly town forcing virtually every home in town to have many stairs. However, Casa Añoro has all the essentials on one floor. Park your car and walk in the front door, the master bedroom, kitchen, living area, and outdoor terrazza are all on one floor making it handicap accessible. There are only two steps down to the pool level.

Ultimate Location:

Casa Añoro is located at the very end of a private road, overlooking the famous Gaia reserve. This means no cars, traffic, noise, or even other people will ever go past the home. You are in complete privacy surrounded by rain forest, our gardens, and acres of private nature reserve... yet you are just 2.5 minutes from the main road where you will find dozens of restaurants and small shops.

Huge panoramic ocean views stretch across the horizon allowing you to have perfect ocean sunsets every night, any day of the year.

Unique Pool:

With the corner or our infinity edge pool facing straight west up the coast line, you can daydream as you watch the surf breaking on miles and miles of shoreline. The large pool also includes a sitting area at the far edge where you can relax and enjoy the views while having a cool drink. Even the tiles in the pool are unique... made from imported light blue Italian glass with gold veins to catch the light.

After your stay with us, we know you will understand the meaning of 'Añoro' and your heart will always desire to return to Costa Rica and Casa Añoro.

About Michael Cunningham

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. I purchased my first home in Manuel Antonio in 2006... CasaToltea.

After extensive renovations, I'm proud that I have made the award winning CasaTolteca the most rented home in town... unfortunately, that means I rarely got to visit. So a few years later, I purchased this property to build my retirement home.

Michael Cunningham purchased this villa in 2013

Why Michael Cunningham chose Manuel Antonio

I now own several properties in town. I know virtually every house and lot in town. When this lot became available, I had to make it my home. It is truly unique... at the end of a private community, I own the property below it, the property above it, and everything in front of it is a private reserve. Nobody will every walk or drive past this house. No buildings will ever be built anywhere near this property. The privacy and unobstructed views of the rain-forest and panoramic ocean views just can't be found anywhere else in town.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Casa anoro is perfectly situated to enjoy spectacularly colorful sunsets over the water. Mornings are equally gorgeous as birds chirp and sing. We enjoyed seeing many tropical birds including a tucan who visited us several times. The house has spectacular views with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors, and the cliff-side setting leaves you feeling like you're suspended in nature. The locals are friendly and truly appreciate the tourists. It's a perfect location to enjoy luxurious relaxation after morning adventures. We enjoyed a guided nature walk, mangrove boat tours, and invigorating ziplines, but the highlight of the vacation were the quiet hours spent at Casa Anoro.

You will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5
We go to Costa Rica every year and love the country. We always rent homes but this is our first time in Casa Anoro. We wanted to try this new home while it is still available for rent. It did not disappoint!

I can highly recommend Casa Anoro for anyone staying in Manuel Antonio that wants to get away from the crowds and enjoy a peaceful, spectacular view. The house is about a 2 minute drive down a small road to the main road where there are plenty of restaurants. It's only another 5 minutes to the beaches and national park. I'd definitely recommend that you have a car since the house is very high up on the hill.

Because the house is so high up, the views are unbelievable! Nothing but trees and ocean as far as you can see. We took sunset photos everyday (they just seemed to get better and better every day). We never had to turn on the a/c. The breezes were always plentiful and kept the house comfortable all day.

We would book the home again next year, but the owner will be living in the house and the house will no longer be on the market. If you have the chance, don't pass up an opportunity to stay at this beautiful home. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: We are very glad you enjoyed your stay. We won't be moving into the home until spring 2015, so there is still time to stay at Casa Añoro again for the first few months of next year. We would love to have you back again.

Specatcular Home

  • 5 of 5
We travel quite a bit and rent homes when possible. We've stayed in many homes around the world and Casa Anoro has to be one of the best, if not the very best. The beds were comfortable memory foam mattresses and the sheets were high quality which made for a very comfortable sleep. Double sinks in each bathroom gave us plenty of room to get ready each morning. The kitchen was huge and featured high end appliances. Even the gas grill was a unique infra-red grill. Cooking and preparing food was a treat.

The layout of the house was perfect, allowing us to cook in the kitchen while still being part of the rest of the group on the covered deck and others swimming in the pool. It felt like one large living area that we could all be together no matter what we each were sitting (or swimming).

I also have to mention the very cool pool light that slowly changes colors at night.

But the absolute best part of this house was the view! The house is located at the end of a private road with nothing but rain forest reserve and a huge panoramic ocean view in sight. Other than two rooftops in the distance, we couldn't see or hear any other neighbors. In a touristy town with hundreds of rental homes stacked up right next to each other, the privacy makes this home very unique.

The pictures of this home do not give it justice... it's really one of those homes you have to see to believe.

We hardly ever left the house and enjoyed watching the sun set into the ocean every night.

We thank the owner and his wonderful staff for letting us stay in his home. We will certainly be back one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us Jon and taking good care of our home while on your vacation. I'm glad you appreciated many of the luxury finishes we've added to the house to make your stay more comfortable. We are continuing to add more to the house and grounds over the summer including even more landscaping through the upper gardens and a huge hand-crafted dining room wall unit to showcase more artwork. Hopefully you have a chance to return to Casa Añoro to see the new additions before I move into the home permanently in spring 2015. We would love to have you back.
