SUSTAINABLE LUXURY WITH PARK & OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM AND TERRACE

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

Rent the right space for your group. 3-5 Bedrooms, 6-12 People, 2 Kitchens, Pool

This villa blends nature and luxury to give you a true tropical life-style vacation. Enjoy spectacular views from the great room with floor to ceiling windows opening to the Park and Ocean, and the pool in the foreground. The many terraces and suites flow to create options for comfortable outdoor living or air-conditioned indoor living, sustainably.

Enjoy the great room and rooftop terrace for gathering as a family or group, along with the privacy of several master-style suites for sleeping, each with views and unique tropical decor. Rent just the right-sized space for your family or group by letting us quote just the rooms you need.

Choose cooking and dining indoors in the great room or alfresco on the rooftop terrace with our covered outdoor kitchen, fully equipped. Or, a chef can prepare a gourmet meal for you in either space. You always have a table with a view.

Our location offers a short walk to the park, beaches, stores and restaurants. Wildlife is abundant here.

A multi-level design affords ocean and rain forest views from all rooms and spaces. The Bird of Paradise Suite with its terrace is on the first level. Up from there, the main level includes the great room, kitchen, the Surf Suite and Monkey Room. The Hibiscus Suite, with balcony, is above the great room. The uppermost level has the rooftop terrace, outdoor kitchen, and Canopy Suite. There is access between the great room area and the upper level, by both interior and exterior stairs, so all the areas flow together.

This villa is unique in the Manuel Antonio area in its sustainable features. We make use of natural resources by using the sun to heat the water, dry the clothes, and even cool the house by evaporation. When electricity is used, it comes first from our solar panels, then the local utilities. You'll still have the luxury of all the usual comforts while feeling good about having a minimal carbon footprint vacation.

A car is not necessary for guests who enjoy walking. The walk up our street is about 300 yards to the main road. From there, the National Park and its beaches are to the right, downhill, about a mile. Or go left and select from our great surfing beach or another calm white sand snorkeling beach and kayaking bay, each about a half mile. Our home is about 360 feet above sea level. Ask us to email our PDF local map and walking guide!

A grocery store and many restaurant options are nearby on the walkable, level main road. Select from local, North American, Asian fusion, and Caribbean cuisine, some with live music and big screen sports bars. Enjoy great steaks and seafood, or opt for pizza and hot dogs or vegetarian dishes, soups and sandwiches. Choices range from romantic and pricey to family style—or hire a local chef to prepare a meal to remember right in the villa!

Wildlife is abundant on our property and surrounding our property. While we cannot guarantee what wildlife you may see during your stay, this is a list of the kinds of species which have been observed on our property, and which you might encounter. Capuchin Monkeys, Titi Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, Sloths, Cotamundi, Jaguarundi, Raccoons, Porcupines, Mot Mot Birds, Toucans, Hummingbirds, Kiskadees, Wild Parrots, Wild Canaries, Iguanas, Jesus Christ Lizards, Frogs of various types and colors including chameleon frogs, Blue Morpho Butterlies, Geckos, a variety of “glow in the dark” insects, including fireflies.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time at El Mirador Magnifico. The house was perfect as was the weather and all the sites and sounds. The monkeys, both squirrel and Capuchin (white-faced) visited daily. Last night a 3-toed sloth slept or ate(?) in the mango tree next to the pool. Alberto was an excellent concierge and helped to familiarize us where to go on a number of occasions--beach, Quepos, market, bank, etc, etc. Monica cleaned up after us with great efficiency. We were most appreciative of both Alberto and Monica. We have had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and here in Manuel Antonio area.



We highly recommend staying at the house to anyone who wishes to visit this area!

We are a semi-retired U.S. couple, living in Costa Rica for over 7 years.

Cindy Lindelien purchased this villa in 2003

The attractions of the Manuel Antonio area combine almost everything a tourist comes to Costa Rica for. There are gorgeous beaches, lots of wildlife varieties, and all water sports and activities. Inland are mountains, waterfalls, and rivers. A wide variety of activities is available to take these in such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding, ATV tours, Canopy Tours, hiking and more. It's all here in this one location.

We love the beaches for walking, swimming, surfing, and having bonfires or cookouts at sunset. We love hiking in the National Park. We enjoy ocean kayaking and snorkeling. We hike and ride horses on our nearby ranch (also for sale), sometimes swimming in waterfall pools.

We love being able to walk to a choice of several first class restaurants, or to the store or the bank. Many days a car is not needed.

EL PARAÍSO

  • 5 of 5
Estuve hospedado durante 5 días en casa el mirador magnífico junto con 10 amigos para celebrar principio de año y el cumpleaños de mi novia...
La atención p parte de Alberto y las señoritas que le ayudan con la casa es impecable... La limpieza de la casa perfecta, toallas limpias todos los días, el equipamiento de la casa (asador, sillas p la playa, juegos de mesa, etc) y una piscina súper relajante hacen que uno pase un rato súper agradable...
La vista hace alusión a su nombre... No se puede pedir una mejor vista...
Volvería muchas veces más...

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I traveled to Costa Rica with my girlfriend (first time to Costa Rica for both of us) and I cannot say on any level it fell short of any expectations. El Mirador Magnifico is absolutely as it's shown to be, and we laughed about how our view looked like we were staring at the picture on this website. Alberto is wonderful and there for you for any situation. I would definitely suggest doing some site-seeing, and Alberto is able to help book any adventure you'd like, which he helped us with because some places did not speak English. Monica cleaned up as many times as promised, and in no way were either intrusive at all! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! Staying at Mirador Magnifico will be as promised, and we already cannot wait for our next visit! The monkeys show up like everyone says and the location and view are wonderful! Our only regret is that we rented a car, as nearly everything is within walking distance, a short cab ride, or you can even take the bus. All of the adventures to plan arrange transportation as well!

PARADISE FOUND!

  • 5 of 5
El Mirador Magnifico was everything we imagined as the perfect place to celebrate my sixtieth birthday with the entire family. Each of our adult children had their own private bedroom and bath, most of which also had private porch. We gathered in the kitchen, den, around the pool, and on the upper deck, but could retreat to privacy as desired. As written in so many reviews, Alberto was a huge factor in our experience of this house, Quepos, the activities and surrounding area. He made all our wishes come true and gave superb advise on how we should spend time and meals (then arranged for it to happen!) Adult favorites include Agua Azul at the top of the driveway, and Cafe Milagro to begin the day with superb breakfast and coffee. Our nine-year-old grandson enjoyed Manuel Antonio park, monkeys, snorkeling/whale sighting/sliding while on the catamaran, zip-lining (along with all seven adults), surf lessons x 3, and parasailing with his uncle. And swimming in the patio pool every minute he was at the house! The birthday dinner at the house with Chef Guy and his son was a memorable evening, topped off with tres leches cake to perfection. Even though our time here was during the green season, we followed advise and did all activities before 3:00 p.m., then welcomed the rain as a siesta! The memories we share of this special week are priceless. And it all began with contacting Cindy (the owner), her attentiveness to the occasion we were celebrating, answering countless questions about travel to Costa Rica, and sharing her history and love of this place. We highly recommend El Mirador Magnifico to anyone looking for memories made in paradise! Ann Krier
P.S. Monica came every day and put the kitchen back in order, washed towels and clothes as requested. . . wha lah!!

FAMILY TIMES AT MAGNIFICO

  • 4 of 5
Amazing views, multifunctional villa and gracious and wonderful staff contributed to a memorable stay at the Mirador Magnifico in Manual Antonio. Even with our three generations ranging from ages 47 to 90, we conquered the elevated walks, somewhat humid conditions and an expanded cuisine.

The owner (Cindy) was very helpful through out the booking and arrival process. The villa’s manager, Alberto, was most helpful in assisting with all our special requests and event bookings and was always not more than a phone call away.

Dad and the ladies look forward to the frequent visits of the local monkey visitors racking up gigabytes of pics until the monkey’s agent (we thought he was a little ‘squirrelly’) showed up one day and demanded pictorial royalties.

Overall, a great place to vacation…we’ll keep this in our special vacation spectacular memory banks.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
My parents, son, husband and I had a wonderful time in Manuel Antonio, made much more special by staying in this lovely home. The layout was perfect for us, with great family space, and also plenty of room for privacy. Alberto and Monica are the two people on site who helped and took wonderful care of us. Monica was so sweet with our 16 month old and he absolutely adored her! Alberto could not have been more kind in answering all of our questions and being a resource for every small detail. I thought having 8 days there, we would have plenty of time to do everything, including a ziplining tour. We were so happy being around the house, the time flew, and we'll now need to go back and explore further! We also wanted to ensure we didn't disappoint the monkeys by not being there when they came for bananas. Every day around 6am and 4pm. If you are traveling to Manuel Antonio, you won't regret staying here!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you were able to get the monkeys on a regular schedule that worked for you! It doesn't always go like that, as they sometimes have their own plan...

We're so glad you all enjoyed it and hope you can return.

RIGHT CHOICE!! GORGEOUS HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
The photos don't do this place justice!! Here are some tips:
The Paradise Room is sort of separated from the rest of the house with its own entrance below, so perfect for noisier guests or guests with children who require complete quiet for naps. Bonus: it is on the lower level for less stairs, too.
The Canopy Room was also very quiet with an outdoor kitchen and separate entrance -- if I was to rent only one room, this would be my choice.
The Surf Room has a big tub and fanciest bathroom -- probably the Master Bedroom of the house. It's on the main level.
The Hibiscus Room is glorious with a gorgeous wood beam ceiling that I loved waking up to every morning. If you go during the rainy season, be forewarned that a pounding rain is amplified in this room -- we had to go downstairs to the Monkey Room to sleep one night.
The Monkey Room is also great -- on the main level -- right in the center of the house with a lovely bathroom and as I mentioned, very quiet at night.
Monkeys came around morning and evening, making their rounds -- we saw many Chapuchins and my daughter was lucky enough to see a troop of Squirrel Monkeys. We also saw Jesus lizards and a Basilisk lizard. The view is flippin gorgeous. You are up high enough to see the beach -- maybe only one or two rooftops.

Alberto manages the house and will take care of all your needs. Excellent English, very patient and accommodating. We wanted some speakers for our iPod and he brought some over. He also helped my daughter rent a car and get the best deal. (Alamo)

We hired Chef Guy, a French Canadian second generation chef who prepared the most marvelous meal for my birthday celebration (12/12/12) -- I strongly advise hiring him for at least one meal. He is an artist in the kitchen. Be sure to order a cake even if it's no one's birthday. It was huge and OMG -- I got the passionfruit mousse cake -- to die for!! We ate it all week.

At the top of the hill is a restaurant called "Agua Azure" -- a great view of the sunset and the food was excellent. Be sure to check that out.

If you are missing your Starbucks fix, there's a place just up from the main road called Café Milagro. Excellent breakfast and great frappes.

The bus was the best way to get around. 50¢ The people of Costa Rica were gracious and friendly. I never once felt uncomfortable about being a foreigner who speaks un poquito espanole. :-)

El Mirador Magnifico was the place to be. I highly recommend it!!

This area is unique in combining everything the traveler expects in Costa Rica with the combination of ocean and jungle. The area of Manuel Antonio and Quepos offers first class restaurants, tours and services.
