THE BALI HOUSE ON THE BEACH, THE BEST LOCATION BY FAR!

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.

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

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.

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.

GORGEOUS, LUSH, PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Bali House is even better than it looks online. The house is gorgeous, tucked into a jungle full of birds, monkeys and trees. The beach is idyllic and easy to get to. The house is a short walk to Manuel Antonio national park and there are several restaurants and bars just up the hill, but out of view from the house.

This was our second trip to CR. We went with a group of 10 friends. The house never felt crowded and the staff on sight were helpful, friendly and unobtrusive. It really is a phenomenal destination.

A PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
My family arrived after a long and tiring day of travel. The kids were antsy to start playing, but my wife and I were ready to take a nap. The house suited everyone perfectly. Meghan, our five-year-old, and John, our eight-year-old, jumped into the pool, while my wife and I reclined on the sun-warmed pool chairs. It was exactly what everyone needed and a great start to a great week. That night the four of us took a taxi to a local restaurant called Rafa's and I ate a tuna salad so good that I said I wanted to take it to vegas and get married. After taking a bite, my wife said she understood and would probably do the same right after the salad and I left.

The week was wonderful. There were monkeys who visited the house a couple times. We went zip-lining. The kids rode horses on the beach. All and all it was filled with enough relaxation mixed with activity to keep everyone happy.

I am hesitant to even write a review because I don't want to make a lot of competition for next year's summer vacation. Still, we had such a great week I figured it would be a shame not to.

BEAUTIFUL BEACH, GREAT HOUSE, FUN NIGHT LIFE !!

  • 5 of 5
We knew the Bali House was well reviewed, we can read. What we did not know was just how much fun we were going to have partying right on the Beach. At the bali house, we had the staff build us a BON FIRE on the beach where we had dinner and drinks. What a blast. Then we walked up the driveway to Raphael's Terraza and partied and danced every night. When we wanted to go to the National Park, we simply walked 15 minutes down the beach and drank coconuts along the way. We love this place !!!

GREAT PLACE TO GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at the Bali house multiple times throughout my life. The location and quality of the house is surreal. The structure of the house is beautiful because it is a mixture between past and present. The architecture and colors in the house are very relaxing and comforting. You feel like you are out in the rain forest, yet you have all the resources and tech that would be in your home.

The house has a perfect balance of isolation and publicity being right next to a private beach. This allows you to surround yourself by others or retreat into your own personal paradise. The pool in the Bali house is gorgeous. The water flows over the sides and is filters back up into the pool.

There are tons of local shops and restaurants that serve excellent food. These restaurants are either up the road or on the beach, all within a walking distance.

Overall I give the Bali house 5 stars for its quality and beauty.

AMAZING! THE HOUSE, SERVICE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing week at the Bali House! So private but so close to the beach, town and restaurants. Plenty of sleeping room, large rooms and the pool is a great draw! Could not have asked for a better staff! Loved that we could walk to the National Park and enjoy the beach walking home. Everyone was so welcoming and the food was superb! Highly recommend and will return asap!!

INCREDIBLE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from one week at the beautiful Bali House and I wish I could have stayed longer. The house is (as mentioned in other reviews) incredibly spacious and nicely designed and its separate bungalows provide privacy while the living room, which is in a separate house, served as the common area for us. Most of the walls are glass (however there are enough curtains to ensure privacy) which enables you to enjoy the gorgeous view of the jungle around, even while sitting at the table and eating your breakfast inside.
For those, who just want to relax and enjoy the sun, the pool is the perfect place to do so, while watching the monkeys that regularly visit the house. For those, who want to be more active, the beach is a short two minute walk away (which leads you through the beautiful jungle around the house) and provides a lot of sports and activities like surfing as well as a couple of shops. It is also possible to go to the Manuel Antonio National Park, however I believe that the jungle around the house is at least as gorgeous as the National Park.
There are a lot of really great restaurants in walking distance of the property and even more in short driving distance (we usually used a taxi to get there, which was very cheap, around 6 dollars each way) even though none of them can beat the view of the sunset you have from the Bali Resort.
Another aspect, that made our stay in Costa Rica so enjoyable, was the staff that was incredibly helpful and welcoming and taking great care of the property and the house everyday as well as providing help and advice when needed.
We spent an amazing week at Bali House and cannot wait to go there again!
