PRIVATE, QUIET HOME WITH POOL IN THE HEART OF MANUEL ANTONIO!

Manuel Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Experience the extraordinary beauty of a tropical rain forest, as you relax on the patio or terrace of Villa Titi.

Villa Titi is a quiet, private home on the grounds of the Hotel Eclipse. This distinctive Mediterranean style villa, located above Manuel Antonio beach, takes advantage of the prevailing ocean breeze and offers all the comforts of home. The deluxe lower suite can comfortably accommodate three with a queen size bed, plus a single bed. This suite has an open spacious floor plan with a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, large private bath and living room that opens to a covered patio. The comfortable second floor bedroom with a queen size bed as well, also has a private bath and covered terrace for relaxation as you take in the surrounding beauty. Separate entries on both levels provide optimum privacy. Villa Titi is equipped with both ceiling fans and air conditioning.

Villa Titi also has satellite television in both bedrooms and was recently updated with large flat screen TVs. It also has Wi-Fi throughout the house, and separate telephones on each level of the home.

“Titi” is the Costa Rican name for the endangered Central American squirrel monkey or Mono Titi. Often times you will be greeted in the morning by the sights and sounds of the “Titis” as they pass overhead, foraging for mangoes next to our house, on their daily rounds. We also have the white face or Mono Blanco monkeys around the house each day as well! In the distance you will hear the howler monkeys and the squawk of the green parrots as they fly overhead. Observe some of the most rare and exotic animal life on earth. Costa Rica is home to more than 9,000 species of birds and animals, as bird watcher’s paradise! Or, just sit under a palm tree with a good book and enjoy the warm ocean breeze.

A short distance away is the Manuel Antonio National Park entrance, where the tropical rain forest meets dazzling white sand beaches. Enjoy a relaxing day with friends at the beach, taking in the sun and surf. Or, simply enjoy a dip in our refreshing pool.

The pool at the Hotel Eclipse is a short walk from your door (approx. 50 meters). After a dip in our pool comes the hard part – selecting one of the many excellent nearby restaurants for dinner! Choose from French, Italian, German, Asian or “Tico” style restaurants. We highly recommend the “catch of the day” such as Mahi Mahi, Yellow fin Tuna, or Snapper. Other varieties are also seasonally available.

My partner Steve and I have been traveling to Costa Rica since 1988! It is a fantastic country; the people are wonderful; the food is fabulous; and the beaches are incredible. There is an amazing variety of wildlife, with warm temperatures year around. The average high temperature during high season from late December to April is about 88 degrees F (31degrees C), and the average low temperature is 75 degrees F (24 degrees C).

The Owner purchased this house in 1993

The Manuel Antonio area is one of the most popular resort areas in Costa Rica and is easily accessible by car, bus or air. The new highway from San Jose makes the 150km trip about a 2 hour drive. There is also frequent bus service and almost hourly air service!

This area is quite different from the northwest part of the country in that the climate is very tropical with very lush vegetation and wild life. The Manuel Antonio beach is almost 2 km long and is also one of the best in all of Central America! The water is warm year around and there is fairly good surfing at the north end of the beach.

Our house is on the grounds of the Hotel Eclipse property but we choose to operate it apart from the hotel. We are part of an association that still allows us access to the pool and off street parking. Security is provided by the hotel's security staff. They not only guard the house but the off street parking lot as well.

Since we are near the equator, the sun rises before 6am almost every day of the year, and it sets around 6pm as well. Our favorite thing is to rise early, make a pot of fabulous Costa Rican coffee, with a breakfast of just picked fresh fruit and listen to the jungle awaken! It is very easy to spend a couple of hours doing this. Then, it's off to the beach or a walk through the National Park. The trees and vegetation grow right down to the sand on the beach, so it is easy to spread your towel under a group of palm trees or the native "allmendro" or almond trees that lean out over the white sand.

Lunch is a filet of mahi mahi, tuna or a hamburger and fries. The beer is the best, with most of the Costa Rican breweries originating in Germany over 100 years ago!

A nap or late afternoon swim at the pool is a nice way to finish the day, before the tough decision of deciding where to eat dinner.

After dinner, it's a little reading or watching television, before turning out the lights at 10pm.

Get a good nights sleep, because the jungle will wake you before 6am the next day!

MONKEYS, SLOTHS, AND IGUANAS!

  • 5 of 5
This place wins in every category! We sat on the porch every morning, while sipping Costa Rican coffee and watching the monkeys play in the trees next to us. The grounds had playful iguanas in every direction. The location couldn't be better. The beach was a 10 minute walk and the bus stop was right out front! What a great place! Stay here and you will love absolutely love it!

PERFECT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
I agree completely with the other reviews--the house is awesome. We appreciated the kitchen and liked being able to make cereal and toast rather than go out for every meal. A couple tips that would have helped me. If you search tripadvisor for reviews on Hotel Eclipse, and found the less than positive reviews, don't worry. The hotel, and grounds are great! We saw tucans, agouti (look like large guinea pigs), lizards and squirrel monkeys! The pool was private and perfect. I appreciated that many of the people staying at the hotel were from Costa Rica. Please note! the VRBO map is way off, and I think this has something to do with the lack of marked roads in CR. This place is truly in the bustling town of Manuel Antonio and it's location is perfect. We had a car and a GPS, which i was never sorry for, although the car insurance was $800 for the week! Anyway, our family of four loved this place--oh and you do have room service, which i was not expecting! Lastly, there is secured parking that put me at ease considering my concern for car damage. Enjoy!

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six ages 4 -71 enjoyed the entire house. The elders were upstairs and enjoyed a quiet breakfast on the patio before the youngsters wanted to go to the pool. The house is set back so the sounds of the birds were all one could hear. The walk into town was downhill with a quick bus/taxi ride back. The hotel affiliated with Villa Titi was our contact point and they were great. We had a mini safe problem and contacting John via e-mail and the front desk took care of everything in no time. The location, accommodations and amenities were Perfect.

THIS IS THE PLACE!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned from a first time visit to Costa Rica, I can't imagine a more perfect place
than Villa Titi for beginning our superb adventure! My friend and I had to pinch ourselves....how could we be so lucky to be located in a tropical paradise, surrounded by such beauty, in a perfect little casita so right for our needs. We rented the downstairs with its full kitchen, spacious rooms, and fantastic shower...and not to forget the beautiful warm pool on the grounds. Out of the front gate is the road that leads down to the beach and Park, as well as to all the open-air bars and restaurants. What a great variety of them! We hope to return here in the future, and thank owners John & Steve and Juan Carlos the manager for their warm hospitality! Look no further - this is an exceptional place!

PERFECT STAY AT VILLA TITI

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Villa Titi in August of 2013. The villa is spacious and clean, has a TV, phone, kitchen and everything we needed. It's prime location at the edge of the jungle made us feel a part of the surrounding nature. A band of monkeys visited one day, Toucans another and a curious resident Iguana (whom we nicknamed Sylvia) made occasional polite visits as we sipped wine on the front veranda. Costa Rican charm! Villa Titi gave us access to three pristine pools and the pathways through the lush gardens were fun to explore. We had rented a car but soon parked it because so many restaurants were with in a short walk. Staff at Villa Titi were friendly and accommodated every need, especially Juan Carlos who greeted us upon arrival and checked in to be sure we had everything we needed. We'll return to Costa Rica and, when we do, wouldn't stay anywhere other than Villa Titi.

EXCELLENT VALUE, BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
The caretaker, Juan Carlos, met me upon my arrival, helped carry my bags up the hill to the Villa and showed me all the amenities. The air conditioning worked great enough to take the ocean humidity out of the air and kept the temperature very comfortable. I will use the well-equipped kitchen more the next stay, but the only reason I didn't take advantage of it was the fact that are some great restaurants within a short walk. I made a fruit and soda run my first morning to the Super Joseph convenience store. Everything is close -- from the National Park, to the beaches, to the restaurants. John recommends The Falls for dinner and I might add that they have a full buffet for breakfast, starting at 7:00 a.m. Excellent food, ambiance, and service that all add up to great meals. I got great internet after resetting the wireless router, which was no big deal, since I have to do that at my house occasionally.

All in all, a great value, in a beautiful setting, and in a small town with lots to offer. I'll be back with the family; I hope.
