STUNNING INFINITY POOL WITH OCEAN AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS FOR YOU TO ENJOY!

Quepos House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8, Home, Stunning Infinity Pool

Welcome to Casa oso de los perezoso (translated as 'the house of the bear sloth'). Bear Sloths are a common sight in the Manuel Antonio area and in particular in the National Park located there. They seem to take life easy and are very laid back; something we love about the lifestyle and the people of Costa Rica and something that we hope you are able to achieve while here in Costa Rica.

Oso de los Perezoso is very private and secure, sitting behind a beautiful large handcrafted wooden gate created by a local woodworker from native wood, and a privacy wall. Located on a 2 acre lot within Finca Se Ve Bien (Looking Good Farm), the Finca comprises 100 hectares with approximately 12 residences located within the Finca. Most of the remaining land area has been left as jungle and forest. Oso de los Perezoso sits atop a hill above the valley and offers spectacular unobstructed views of the mountains to the north and east and the valley below and the Pacific ocean to the west. Facing west, you will truly enjoy the beautiful sunsets each night from the outdoor patio area.

Our Casa is just over 2000 square feet of indoor living. All of this on one level - a rarity in the Manuel Antonio/Quepos area!

There are 3 very generously sized, fully furnished bedrooms, designed with two separated bedroom wings to provide privacy for our guests. The master suite is located in one wing of the house with the other two bedrooms in the opposite wing. Joining the two wings is a large open concept common area that contains the comfortably furnished living and dining rooms, a sitting area and a fully equipped kitchen fit for a gourmet cook. A bar height counter made from a large single piece of native wood with bar stools, handcrafted by a local woodworker, overlooks the kitchen area enabling you and your guests to socialize while the meal is being prepared. All rooms have spectacular views of the mountains, the valley or the ocean as well as the incredible outdoor living area and infinity pool.

Each bedroom room and the common living area have their own individual air conditioner, however you will find no need for them during the day when the large patio doors of the living area and the bedrooms are opened, letting the late morning and afternoon breezes flow through the house. Each room in our Casa has ceiling fans to assist in air movement and even the elevated outdoor patio areas have fans.

While you will find the interior spacious and very comfortable the outdoor living area is spectacular.

Anchored by a one of a kind infinity edged pool, there is approximately 2000 square feet of additional space. You will thoroughly enjoy the combination of the covered, elevated patio area shading you from the sun or rain and a luxurious lower patio area of limestone (that never gets hot in the brilliant and powerful sun of Costa Rica) that surrounds the infinity edged pool. The lower level is accessed by a wide and gently declining staircase. The outdoor area is fully equipped with sun umbrellas, chaises and tables and chairs for your enjoyment as well as a new propane BBQ. The pool is constructed with beautiful, non slip, quartz tiling with gentle and wide steps to your submersed sitting bench and a one meter deep pool area that is great to lounge in or is great for the kids. The lap area of the pool is a consistent 8 feet deep and is great to swim in or do laps. You will enjoy a cooling shower after a day out and about under the newly installed stainless steel outdoor shower adjacent to the pool.

Dina, our property manager is conveniently located next door to our Casa. She is fluent in both English and Spanish. A native Costa Rican, she is very familiar with the Manuel Antonio and Quepos areas. She is also experienced in the hospitality industry.

She will communicate with you well before you arrive to assist with any requests or questions you may have. Dina will meet you on arrival and assist you in settling in and learning the fantastic features of our Casa.

She is available to assist you, both before you arrive and when you are at our Casa with your travel plans and activities. Dina's assistance comes at no cost to you as she is our concierge on site. She will be able to provide you with a wide range of information on the numerous activities in the area, make your reservations for you and ensure that they are trouble- free. She knows about all the restaurants and bars and is up to date on the best of the tour companies and what they have to offer and the costs.

Speaks english

Clyde and Scott have been together for 14 years. Both professionals, they were raised in Manitoba, Canada and now live in Southern Ontario.

Clyde Bond purchased this house in 2013

Casa Oso de los Perezoso is our home; a dream realized after a number of years of contemplating purchasing a home in Costa Rica to enjoy as our vacation home and as our residence on a semi full time basis in the future.

We decided two years ago that we wanted to make Costa Rica a part of our life permanently and this house is the realization of that dream. We have been to Costa Rica many times and while we have vacationed in other areas, we have always gravitated back to Manuel Antonio/ Quepos for the lifestyle it provides. Great restaurants, friendly people, safe drinking water, amazing beaches, our list could go on for ever. When we saw this property - we knew it was the one. Who couldn't fall in love with that pool?! The other requirement we wanted was a house all on one level, so that we could host any guest, regardless of their mobility needs. Most homes in this area have many steps that you have to navigate for the views. We thought that this house provided us the ocean views we wanted, the amenities we wanted to share with our friends and a great place to unwind for a few days or a few weeks.

We offer it to you for your use and enjoyment as your home while you stay with us. We truly hope that you will come to appreciate the beauty and vitality of the country of Costa Rica and it's people as we do.

The amazing view from the common living areas out over the pool and beyond to the ocean - it is simply breathtaking. As soon as you arrive, you simply want to unwind and relax with your favorite libation, a good book at poolside or a refreshing dip in the pool.

Scott loves to cook so the kitchen is fully set up, from gas cooktop to wall oven with all the necessary tools to make fantastic snacks and meals and a new dishwasher to make clean up a breeze.

Don't want to cook inside and miss the views, BBQ on the patio overlooking the pool, the valley and the mountains where there is more than enough space to enjoy your guests as you cook those fantastic meals.

MOST AMAZING VACATION AND VACATION HOME EVER!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided to celebrate our 25th anniversary this year with a big trip to Costa Rica, a destination we had been considering for a while. We also decided to bring our two sons along as they are both fluent in Spanish and we knew they would love the culture and amazing outdoors.

When we found Scott and Clyde's home in Quepos, we knew we need look no longer. I know it's been said before, but when we first walked into their home, our first words truly were, "the pictures on the website do not do it justice!". The house was beautiful, in particular all of the local wood and just the elegant simplicity. It feels very elegant yet livable. I could easily see 3 couples staying here very comfortably! The grounds were spectacular, kept our 11 year old completely engrossed in finding new lizards, frogs, spiders, plants, etc. Hands down though, the infinity pool was the most popular feature and hang-out spot; our boys spent no less than 4 hours a day in the pool! All in all seeing the breathtaking views - the painted sunsets with mountains, clouds, ocean, flora and fauna all converging into a spectacular collage; the sight of fog and giant birds encircling the mountains - was worth the price of admission! Even the rain (mostly in late afternoon or evenings) was indescribably beautiful here!

We absolutely have to raise Dina, the property manage, to the forefront of this review. She was beyond amazing (we would give her 6 stars if VRBO would allow it!). As others have noted, all of her recommendations were spot on from various activities (El Santuario Zipline was our favorite!), to restaurants (Barba Roja had a gorgeous sunset view and great local cuisine), to just general guidance. However, we had a few "unplanned" adventures that threw us a few curve balls. Dina was a true life-saver on these occasions, really helping to take the stress out of some potentially stressful situations. (I won't go into detail, but suffice it to say that these were all things that could have occurred in any location in the world, just always made a bit more challenging when on vacation. Not unique to Costa Rica by any means!) Bottom line is that Dina really rounded out this amazing trip with her willingness to help and quite frankly go above and beyond on a consistent basis!

If you are considering Costa Rica and the Quepos / Manuel Antonio region for your travels, you truly have found the best spot! We will definitely be back one day!

GREAT TRIP

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary along with another couple at the Casa. Like others have mentioned, the pictures don't do it justice. The house has everything you could ever need plus more. Dina was such a great resource. She helped us out with excursions and places to eat as well any other questions we had. Every restaurant and excursion she recommended was excellent. The house is located around 5 minutes from Quepos where you can do your shopping. There is a little meat market and a fish market (both which Dina recommended) and both were excellent. Nothing like cooking the catch of the day on the BBQ back at the house. We can't wait to go back!!

BEST VALUE IN THE AREA

  • 5 of 5
This is a luxury vacation home! My friends and I could not recommend it more highly! The views are perfect, the pool is precisely the correct size, the decks around the pool are plentiful and welcoming. The wildlife is good - monkeys, iguanas, all kinds of birds, and NO cicadas! Each room in the villa is individually air conditioned.....that was perfect for us since it was 95 and sunny while we visited and we need the air at night. The main part of the house is perfect for relaxing, the kitchen is good for cooking and stores to shop and the beach are only minutes away. Safe and secure, amenities galore! We are coming back again next year (and probably the next and the next and the next.....)

We have traveled extensively in Costa Rica for the past ten years, stayed in the mountains and on almost all of the Pacific coast beach towns. This is the best!

WOW!!!! This house is way more amazing than the pictures show...it has everything and more you will need for your stay. There are gorgeous panoramic views from every room in the house and the furnishings are top of the line, the bedrooms are roomy with lots of closet and storage space and the bathroom absolutely "Exquisite" tile all throughout, roomy and again gorgeous view from all 3 bathrooms...yes 3 bathrooms in this house. The laundry room has brand new top of the line washer and dryer with a sink for hand washables ect..Wrap around patios all around the house the backyard with the Infinity pool which is perfect it starts at 3 ft and drops to 8ft by the wall that over looks the beach and acres and acres rain forest. The kitchen has state of the art appliances, pots, pans, dinnerware, bowls, utensils glassware need I say more. Ok I stop my long winded review but as you can tell the house was in "Immaculate" condition!! If you need anything Dina the property manager is amazing she actually was there at Midnight when we arrived to greet us made reservations for us and was there when we departed at 4:00 am.... utilize her she is amazing!! Nelson the housekeeper comes 2 to 3 times a week and cleans the house spotless and will even do laundry...this is our 10th trip to Quepos/Manuel Antonio and by far this is the "BEST" house we have ever stayed in. "THANKS" Scott, we will definitely be back next year. Pura Vida!!!!

QUEPOS QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 (3 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed this home. It is in a very quiet, electronic gate secured neighborhood called Finca Se Ve Bien. It is convenient to Manuel Antonio and Quepos. We had a rental car which made things even easier. This an extremely modern and clean home. The infinity pool is awesome along with a BBQ. You can't ask for a nicer area. Pool/beach towels are provided. There are spectacular views of both ocean and mountains. The photos in the description do not lie. It is really that nice! There is a property manager, Dina, who will make sure your stay is fantastic. At first glance, she appears like an ex-pat but is a born and raised Tica. She helped us through a rental car accident report, gave us dining and shopping recommendations and arranged a nature guide, Rey, who was outstanding. She is a great asset to this property.
Pluses: each kid had their own bed (2 shared a room & all 3 shared a modern bathroom), washer & dryer (didn't think this was a big deal but it came in handy, all detergent and fabric softeners are provided), working kitchen with all the amenities plus spices and sauces, super safe home (security alarm, gate at entrance, hotel room safe in home...seems like over kill for the quiet area but it provided piece of mind), away from the hustle and bustle of Manuel Antonio.
Minuses: too far for those who want to walk to Manuel Antonio or Quepos but that's what makes the home so peaceful and enjoyable!!
The owners are very attentive to our questions and were very easy to make the transaction of renting. Unlike many things in Costa Rica, you will know where you are going, know who you will meet, and know how much it will cost. Our return flight to the US was canceled, and the owners were able to graciously allow us to stay an extra night at a tremendously reduced rate...a bonus day in CR!. Pura Vida!

AMAZING HOME BY THE MANUEL ANTONIO PARK

  • 5 of 5
This house was incredible. Gorgeous home, landscaping, pool and view. We were all thrilled. The kitchen had room for 5 of us to cook together, the master bedroom shower had 4 jets, the rooms were all spacious, the interior decorating was great and the architecture superb. We could not have asked for a better place. It was off from the main areas enough to feel secluded but a short drive to Quepos and the park. We could not have asked for a better place. The owners and the local caretaker were all so great to work with.
