Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

VILLA KISKADEE

Villa Kiskadee is a beautiful, three level, four suite, Tropical Modern style home with pool, located in Tulemar Gardens. It is perched on a large, private, estate sized lot and has spectacular and dramatic ocean views; without a doubt, some of the best in the area! The house has two master suites; one with a king, the other two queen beds. It has two guest suites; one with two queen beds and the other has a trundle bed, a single on top with a single that pulls out below. (9 guests max please) Each suite is complete with bath, terrace and ocean views. There are indoor and outdoor dining areas plus a huge modern kitchen. Due to its secluded location, the house is visited daily by monkeys, sloths and toucans!

TULEMAR GARDENS

Villa Kiskadee is located in Tulemar and that is exactly where you want to be in Manuel Antonio. It is the only gated and secure 33 acre resort development in Manuel Antonio with its own private beach. There are nature and hiking trails leading thru the jungle areas complete with plaques describing trees and vegetation. The private beach is perfect for swimming and snorkeling and has free lounge chairs, umbrellas, sea kayaks, and boogie boards for all guests to use. Food and beverage service is available. You can walk 5 minutes down the hill to the beach and either walk back up or take the resort shuttle. Tulemar is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, within walking distance to the best restaurants and fun bars. The national park is just minutes down the street. A rental car is not necessary. We can even arrange a private chef.

 

PERSONAL BUTLER SERVICE

One of the things our guests rave about the most, is the unexpected and unrivaled service they received during their stay at Villa Kiskadee from Mauricio, their own personal butler. Mauricio, a native of Costa Rica, graduated from ULACIT university with a business degree and then spent three years in the US working and studying English. After his time in the US, he returned to Costa Rica to work in banking and hospitality, learning the high level of service required to excel in both industries. He takes pride in knowing what guests expect staying in a luxury vacation rental, and utilizes his extensive network of local contacts to fulfill all our guests’ wishes. You can feel comfortable at Villa Kiskadee knowing that whatever you need during your stay will be taken care of by Mauricio. From transportation to the house from San Jose, to tours, activities, restaurant reservations, spa services and even surf lessons, Mauricio handles it all.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My husband and I, our 2 kids (10 and 14) and my parents just returned from an amazing week long vacation in Costa Rica staying at Villa Kiskadee. It was a wonderful time had by all. Mauricio kindly stocked the fridge with all the groceries we requested, set up every excursion and had special connections to get us into any restaurant at any time. We enjoyed our time at the beautiful private beach. The view from the villa was absolutely stunning. We saw monkeys and sloths right off the balcony and even a sighting of toucans. I enjoyed sitting there every morning drinking my coffee as well as every evening with a cocktail. This villa had it all. I would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone who is looking for stunning views, peace and quiet, and the adventures of a lifetime.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
In April my family rented Villa Kisskadee for spring break. From the moment Dave contacted me, I knew my vacation would be perfect. He explained everything from our travel plans, the area, the attractions and the house. Everything he said was accurate. He helped me plan our vacation and was able to answer all my questions. Having a family of boys (15,12 and 7) I needed a certain amount of adventure and my husband and I needed a certain amount of luxury and relaxation....Villa Kisskadee is the answer. Set on the grounds of Tulemar made our trips to the beach easy. The house is private and beautiful. The pictures dont really capture the beauty of the house. Mauricio makes sure everything "happens". Each day we would tell him what we wanted to do and he arranged everything. I did not have to plan anything ahead of time because Mauricio planned our activities each day. We did a wide range of activities...zip lines, rafting, waterfall repelling, national park tours, jet skiing, grocery store trips, private chefs....the list goes on and Mauricio was our expert guide. One day we wanted a banana leaf to cook some fish in and within minutes he was at our door showing us how to do it. Our trip was the perfect balance of adventure, relaxation (massages on the patio), great food and beautiful immaculate accommodations. I would highly recommend this property or anything else where Dave and Mauricio are involved. I hope I have another chance to visit!

Our stay at Villa Kiskadee was nothing less than spectacular! The villa is located in a private gated community called Tulemar Gardens.

The house and the views were amazing and enjoyed the daily visits of the local wildlife (Howlier, Titi & Cappuchin monkeys, tucans, sloths, etc).

When we arrived at the villa, we were greeted by Dave, Mauricio and the staff. Dave and Mauricio made every effort to make our vacation a memorable one. Mauricio's recommendations on restaurants, activities and in-house chef were all spot on. He also arranged all of our transportation and grocery needs.

We would definitely recommend this to families or a group of friends and hope to return soon.

We rented Villa Kiskadee with some friends in
August. The house sits at the end of a private
driveway surrounded by lush tropical gardens, in
the rain forest, in walking distance to a nice private
beach. The house is specatcular with one of the
most beautiful views that we have ever seen. We
saw monkeys, sloths and toucans everyday. Our
children were were very happy and had a great
time. Mauricio handled all of our tours and activities
reservations. We loved the house and we plan to go
back!

My family rented Villa Kiskadee in April of 2009....you enter via your own private, curving driveway...very exclusive....the house sits at the end surrounded by lush tropical gardens.....when you enter, the entire back side of the house opens to the pool and the ocean views. Each bedroom suite has ocean views and balconies, so everyone was happy. Mauricio handled all of our needs, from tours, activities and restaurant reservations. Very professional and he made it easy for us. We saw monkeys, sloths and toucans everyday. We loved the house and we will be back!
