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.

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!

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 !!!
