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.

MOST GORGEOUS HOME IN PLAYA ESPADILLA

  • 5 of 5
My family and I we stayed from the 13th to the 20th at Bali house. It was the perfect getaway. My family and I can not wait to return again next summer . The house is beautiful and unique having an incredible architectural design perfectly suited for relaxation and sharing with family and friends. It was great with everything we could possibly need, the dining area with its gorgeous large table, the expansive living room and the 5 beautiful bedrooms with private baths. The patio allowed for our family to spend evenings together while listening to the roaring ocean, in the mornings we could hear the howler monkeys around the house and see the titi monkeys walking around the deck. The pool was large enough to really swim in, and the ocean is less than a minute away. Everything was so perfect. . What a beautiful beach! We took several long walks along the water's edge. We often watched the surfers, swam or just lazily read a book.
Back at the house we had the best time ever! We had a great time being quite lazy there for hours and hours. Of course there was a lot to do nearby too.
Their are several good restaurants, all reasonably priced. As if that were not enough, we also appreciated the excellent staff. The property manager, Fernando, was super helpful and he was willing to assist with any problems and makes great recommendations for things to do, places to go, etc.
We highly recommend this wonderful house with confidence. The owner is an excellent communicator and will accommodate whatever needs you may have.

GREAT STAY,WONDERFUL HOUSE, PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This house is absolutely perfect for family and friends vacation,we enjoyed every minute of our time there.The house has all the amenities you could ask for and makes you feel at home. Excellent staff , they are always there for whatever you need. And everything you could possibly need is just minutes away.
The house is situation between the jungle and less than a minute walk to the Ocean and provides so many options, Every day you can see, monkeys sloths lizards etc...
The pool area is great, We spend a lot of time playing around there. at night is so nice to hear the waves of the sea , and feel the relaxing breeze . It is like being in paradise.
The 'parents' were also able to enjoy a relaxing vacation because the teenagers had many options to keep them busy. If you are considering a trip to the beach, I would highly recommend this house.
The house exceeded my expectations, We do plan on coming back again. If there were more stars they would be added here!

More than just a house

  • 5 of 5
The Bali House is more than just a house. Imagine renting out your own resort. That's right your own resort. We recently returned from a short stay at this gorgeous place and couldn't have been more happy. Yes a few things could be better (hot water in master) (ants in kitchen) but let me explain we would go back in a heartbeat. We have been to Manuel Antonio and stayed at great resort houses like Tulemar and Issimo suites. This takes it to a different level. Picture having your own beautiful room and view but sharing a common area with all of your best friends. Each couple had a romantic suite packed with exquisite furniture and amazing fixtures. When we decided to wake up we went into the giant family room which is shared by all. Great appliances, great furniture and a view of the pool that goes on forever.

If you can ever get out of the pool, its a short walk to the beach. The closest house I've seen so far in Manuel Antonio. A romantic path leads you down to whats considered a public beach. However, we had it to ourselves. We used the houses boogie boards and chairs on the beach and had a great time.

The location was excellent. A bit of a steep short walk to the main road where you can catch the bus easily. Also Raphael Terrazzo is directly above with music and good food.

Don't change a thing Peter, the place is lovely!

Beautiful House, Perfect Vacation.

  • 5 of 5
The Bali House is simply gorgeous, with plenty of room for family and friends, only 100 meters from the beach. Obviously the view of the sea is beautiful. like this in the jungle can see the different animals that live there, such as lizards, monkeys (of various types), sloths, etc ... and many other exotic animals.
There are many restaurant and bar options to enjoy that can be reached on foot or by taxi. Everything is close to the bali house. My family and I feel at home here. with its breathtaking sunset, you can see the amazing colors on the horizon and at night you can see the stars, the moon and listen to the soothing waves of the sea. It's perfect.
The staff is great, they are always on the lookout for anything you need.
We will return to this piece of paradise for sure!

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved our family vacation at the Bali house. My sisters and brought our children and all of us instantly fell in love with the property. The kids marveled at the monkeys and sloths while the adults enjoyed the privacy and beauty of the setting. We all loved the beach access and daily for swims and attractions on Playa Espadilla. The National Park was a short distance walking and we went twice. We certainly intend to come back next year!
