Overview

Manuel Antonio Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 15+ or 21 with guest house)

Welcome to Bali Village, where the rain forest meets the beach in beautiful Manuel Antonio! The Bali House is a 5 bedroom 7 bath Balinese Villa nestled into the rain forest just steps away from the beach. This exotic tropical villa is one of four rental homes on a 45-acre rainforest parcel bordering one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Our location is perfect for guests who love the beach and want to maximize their beach time. Most rental homes in Manuel Antonio are perched high in the hills and their guests must drive or walk down steep hills to reach public beach access areas. At the Bali House, you are at the beach. You simply walk down our garden path and you are at private section of the beach in 1 minute! Come and enjoy our exotic hideaway in the most desirable location that Manuel Antonio has to offer - in the rain forest, yet on the beach.

Bali Village is comprised of a cluster of exclusive homes that represent the ONLY community residence directly on Playa Espadilla (the main beach in Manuel Antonio). Guests may rent the 5 bedroom house, a 4 bedroom house or a 3 bedroom guest house. Some guests of course chose to rent two or more homes at one time (see our other listings).

About The Bali House: The Bali House was designed by Balinese architect Ketut Arthana. Arthana is internationally recognized for his insightful work in designing luxury residences, tropical resorts and spas throughout Asia, Hawaii, North America and Europe including the elegant Puri Woolandari hotel in Bali, one of the Small Leading Hotels of the World. The villa was initially designed and framed in Bali from Indonesian ironwood. It was disassembled and shipped to Costa Rica along with all the furnishings and finishes and it was carefully reconstructed by a team of Balinese craftsmen.

Villa Staff: The Bali House is staffed by a manager/concierge, housekeeping, gardener, daily pool service, and maintenance staff. Your Concierge will be happy to arrange transportation from the International Airport to the house, reserve tours, hire a private chef, a masseuse, or anything else you need during your stay.

About peter

The Bali house is owned and operated by local Costa Ricans with a little help from a lucky Gringo from Philadelphia. While Odillie is the grande dame who sets the style and handles the staff, Peter is the property manager who handles the bookings. Odillie and Peter were married in April 2013. They intend to build more such beautiful homes elsewhere on the property. Akira Reserve has 45 acres, more than enough for some special homes, should you be interested in joining them!!

peter purchased this estate in 2005

Why peter chose Manuel Antonio

The owner's chose Manuel Antonio because of it's natural beauty and for the National Park. There are many amenities and adventure tours available in this area of Costa Rica. Odillie loves the monkeys and Peter loves the restaurants.

What makes this estate unique

Odillie and Peter fell in love at the Bali house so they're a bit biased, but in truth, they find the density of the jungle and the proximity of the ocean waves to be utter magic. Whether eating mangos off the patio deck, walking up the driveway to Raphael's Terrazas for a spectacular tuna salad or simply strolling down the beach with a refreshing coconut drink, Odillie and Peter find there is always something to do that is pleasant, healthy and attractive.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 adults had the pleasure of enjoying the Bali House in February 2015. We enjoyed the home so much we cancelled some of our excursions just so we could spend more time on the beach, which has private access from the Bali House and enjoy the monkeys that visited us everyday. I highly recommend and will definitely return next year!

Amazing Property, Beautiful home and beach, Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful week at this home. 7 adults, 3 children, 1 infant.

The process of renting was well done by Peter.

The staff did a fine job supporting us and providing our needs.

Fernando was great. He and Iliana provided most of our meals. Maria provided clear communication in the last days leading up to our visit.

Great wildlife encounters on the property.

Premium beach access.

All in all a wonderful experience. Thanks to Peter and the entire team.

Already planning 2016.

Amazing House for an Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Costa Rica for my wife's 40th birthday with 6 adults and 7 kids and the Bali House was the perfect setting for us to enjoy a relaxing week. Peter made the reservation process easy, provided great recommendations for activities, and we had a private chef all week. We didn't worry about the kids at all (ages 6-10) as the pool and outdoor areas were perfect for them to run around and be themselves. The bedrooms were set up perfectly so that the kids could have their own rooms (boys with boys, girls with girls) and the adults had plenty of peace and quiet in our rooms. Highly recommend having a chef, Desiree Brassert (costadezz@gmail.com) did an amazing job catering to all of our food needs and providing the best options across all of our ages. I was a little concerned about the distance to the beach but it turned out to be right behind the house through the trees, lizards and crabs. And the monkeys who visited us every day made us feel like we were in the jungle. All in all a great trip with great friends and great service!!!!

A beautiful experience at the bali house.

  • 5 of 5

The House is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. We were visited every day by howler monkeys, whiter face monkeys, and squirrel monkeys. There's also the local sloths.

We were looking for a big house with a private beach access that could accommodate our group . Once we saw the great pictures of the house we realized, we knew we had to book this house. Booking this house was easy. Fernando, the concierge worked with me to make sure that we had all the things we needed, he answered our many questions, what we could expect, and all other vacation questions. He was there for any issue that we might have, and to be our local fixer. He and his wife Ileana cooked us many dinners and breakfast almost every day. The meals were very good. We also went to really good restaurants near the house.

The cleaning lady, Andrea and the staff were friendly and very nice to talk to.

We loved our Costa Rican Trip! We hope to come back again.
