Overview

Manuel Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

An awe inspiring Ocean View Estate in the Jungle with an unmatched Private Chef

Casa Maravilla Estate home is a very uniquely designed and extremely popular luxury retreat and is situated on over an acre of land and the only home in the area constructed entirely out of Almond wood, which gives it such a unique look and experience in a beautiful Jungle setting with an abundance of monkeys, toucans, iguanas and other animals. Several Celebrities, including the Presidents of Sony Motion Pictures and Lennar Homes (2nd largest home builder in the US), along with a few Actors, have selected Casa Maravilla Estate as their Villa of choice in Manuel Antonio.

With exquisite gardens, 6 private bedrooms/baths, this Estate provides tremendous comfort for your entire group. All bedrooms are completely air conditioned and out of sight of one another with 4 bedrooms in the Main House and 2 more in the private Casitas. The 800 square foot Rancho/ Barbeque area was designed and built for entertaining in mind. A custom bar with a Plasma TV, dining for your entire group and relaxing chairs are all nicely situated to take advantage of the tropical gardens and overlook the very enjoyable waterfall/infinity swimming pool (with bar stools in the pool) and a wading area with water jets for the kids to play in, which all overlooks the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The 30-foot high hardwood ceilings provide excellent ventilation, and sliding glass doors all the way around, allow you to either open the home completely to the fresh pacific breezes by day and the sounds of the jungle at night, or to close it up and enjoy the experience in fully air conditioned comfort. There are also 7 plasma TV’s in the Villa as well as bluetooth speakers in every bedroom, living room and Rancho!

Casa Maravilla would not be a First Class Estate without providing your own Gourmet Chef to prepare up to 3 meals per day (food and beverage costs are separate). Nobody needs to shop, cook or clean as Chef Ronald, who has been the Chef at Casa Maravilla Estate for 6 years, loves his profession and many groups want to take him home with them after their stay! Ronald does it all and saves you money (some groups say over $1,000 for the week) as well by purchasing the freshest ingredients from local vendors - butchers and fisherman, where typically only Restaurants shop. Saturday mornings is the day that Ronald goes to our Farmers market and selects the best vegetables, fruit and high quality produce at a fraction of the cost of our local stores.

The stunning ocean views and spectacular nightly sunsets are sure to take your breath away as well as over 100 outdoor lights that illuminate this incredible property. Manuel Antonio National Park and its multiple white sand beaches rimmed with pristine rain forest, are the treasured jewel of Costa Rica’s park system and are just 5 minutes away while, Quepos, with its wide variety of shopping, restaurants, bars, Casino, markets, and sport-fishing fleet is less than 5 minutes in the other direction. Casa Maravilla Estate is centrally located to take advantage of both areas.

Three types of friendly monkeys visit the property regularly, as well as the fascinating and slow moving tree sloths (we have had up to 5 at a time), a large variety of birds, and a plethora of other sometimes hard to describe animals, so bring your camera and you’ll be sure to enjoy the best of the jungle and it’s amazing inhabitants from the terraces and gardens of this amazing luxury home.

So relax in your very own Estate Property while the wonderful staff and Chef work their magic so that you can have an extremely relaxing and memorable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars - Reviewed 2 days ago for a stay in March 2015 NEW

This was our second Spring Break at Casa Maravilla with Teenage children. The house is perfect in every way-the location is in the middle of everything but private at the same time. Many updates from last year that only enhanced the property. The pool and outside areas are spectacular-the view is hard to beat. Ronald, a great chef, is the leader of a staff that takes care of your every need. We did not eat a meal out and had a variety of foods, from local to our favorites from home. Ronald is as funny as he is kind and will keep you entertained the entire trip. Xenia is a wonderful housekeeper and does your laundry everyday.

The locals know the house so they can get you for all the tours you do. We zip-lined, fished, and went on the Vacation Buggy. All excellent and Sabrina, the house concierge, did a fabulous job setting up our schedule. I could go on, but the bottom line is the place is perfect.

Dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

I found Casa Maravilla last fall and knew it was the perfect property for our traveling group of 10. Don and Sabrina answered all of my questions in a timely fashion and followed through with every request. Needless to say it was a house in paradise, along with an amazing staff. Highly recommend!!!

Ronald told me that your Lobster fest on Friday night turned out great and we're glad that you did not take him home with you!!! We hope you return again next year or sometime down the road. All the best, Don

This property and staff are great!

If you want to be in the lap of luxury and have no worries regarding anything from meals to arranging excursions, you need to stay at Casa Maravilla. We had 5 couples there for a week. The facility could not have been better. The staff was friendly and capable. Sunsets at the pool were unmatched. A can't miss property.

Beautiful tropical retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five couples staying for a week. We were all pleased to learn the villa was exactly as depicted in the photos. The bedrooms were all well separated and quite private, which worked well for our group.

We especially enjoyed the outdoor dining area. We originally planned to eat most lunches out and at least two or three dinners out. However, we realized early on that we wouldn't find a better meal anywhere. Every one of the meals prepared by Chef Ronald was absolutely delicious. We were all sorry to say goodbye to him.

Our luggage was lost upon arrival at the San Jose airport and Sabrina worked tirelessly all day on a Sunday to get it returned and offered assistance in every way she could. She is a treasure and we are very grateful to her.

Then entire staff at Casa Maravilla is exceptional. Most have been there for many years and every one of them takes great pride in the job they do and it shows in how well maintained and clean the villa is.

I believe Casa Maravilla would make a good location for anyone looking to stay in the Manuel Antonio region.

Perfect group getaway

  • 5 of 5

I recently vacationed here with a group of friends. Our every needs were fulfilled. The staff is prepared for just about any request . Sabrina is always available to make any reservations for you. Be prepared to gain a few pounds, Ronald's cooking is awesome.

This staff is always available but also very respectful of their guests privacy.

Great house and compound .

Owner's Response: Linda, We are thrilled that your group had such a great time at Casa Maravilla Estate and appreciate you taking the time to express your experience in this review. Ronald has a way of having you depart a size bigger than you arrived, but I'm sure it was well worth it. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future. Much appreciated, Don

Owner's Response: Mercy R. Thank you for your review and we are delighted that you enjoyed our beautiful and popular Casa Maravilla Estate and since you have departed, we have been successful in getting our local Electric company to remove their pole and wires which really...opens up the view... Since you come to Manuel Antonio often, we would love to host your group/family again next year. All the best, Don

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous place. This was our second year spending Spring Break at Casa Maravilla and it just keeps getting better. Don has done a great job updating the amenities and the new deck around the pool is stunning. From booking to ending the trip, everything was so smooth. Chef Ronald is a true gentleman and a great cook. He will have you at ease with his humor and become part of your family before you leave. The house is very convenient to everything you will want to do, yet is very private at the same time. A lot of the houses in MA are so close to each other that you lack privacy. Casa Maravilla is on a big lot that is landscaped to tropical perfection. The entire staff takes care of all the details and you can relax and enjoy the beauty and charm of the country. Sabrina, the concierge of the house, is a huge asset and will help you get your plans together. We zip-lined, fished, and took the Vacation Buggy tour, which was a real authentic experience of the true Costa Rica. We can't wait to go back soon and will, without question, stay at this small slice of paradise.
