AWARD-WINNING OCEAN-FRONT LUXURY VILLA

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bed, 4 Bathroom, 2 Kitchen Home With Pool And Dramatic Ocean Views

A Home as sensual as its setting - avant-garde minimalist architecture (Metropolitan Home of the Year) in the heart of Manuel Antonio!

Villa CalaLuna

Perched on a steep tropical hill-side above the Pacific Ocean, just minutes north of famous Manuel Antonio National Park, this stunning architectural gem showcases an inspired modern spin on Jungle Geometry: The Villa's spine - 2 immense almond beams - is supported by a double row of massive columns that march through the tri-level 'great room' to a panoramic window-wall, marking the increase in ceiling height from 14 - 24 feet, as the space steps down.

From the entrance porch, strikingly sculptured stairs either levitate to a lofty mezzanine and further up to the master suite and sun-deck above, or widen as they flow down to the kitchen/dining level and the living room below - always inviting to double as seating. The vast floor-to-ceiling glass facade opens to a water-edged living terrace shaded by 3 smartly suspended sails, while high cedar doors attend the side-wing-suite on the right side of the living room level.

CalaLuna was designed to be in tune with its tropical landscape - open to the sea breezes, the scent of ylang ylang trees and the ever-changing light of its rainforest environment. Rooms extend onto expansive balconies, patios and hammock-strung terraces, while the magnificent infinity pool is carved into the hillside and embedded in lush tropical vegetation - shimmering sea views from everywhere.

White walls and sand-colored polished cement floors are offset by playful splashes of color - sun-drenched orange, reds and fuchsia - black granite kitchen counters and richly grained native woods.

A haven completely calm and serene contrasting the abundance of the jungle’s greenery - boldly simple in its furnishings and always sophisticated in its fusion of honest materials and textures - concrete, steel, glass, granite, slate, flagstone and plenty of local hard-woods.

Minimal in decor and yet rich in space, light, ideas and imagination.

Kitchens:

2 full size kitchens and dining areas, one in the great room and another in the side wing suite. A professional VIKING stove, stainless steel BBQ grill on the main kitchen balcony

Pool:

Beautiful and very private jungle setting

Invisible edge design

Very cool underwater color lighting

MANUEL ANTONIO: 3 Miles south of Quepos, Costa Rica's most exciting tropical coastal region with several off-shore islands and the truly famous MANUEL ANTONIO NATIONAL PARK - world renowned for its beautiful white sand beaches, monkeys, and amazing variety of wildlife and fauna - a true jungle paradise showcasing the area's natural magnificence.

BEACHES, etc: We are overlooking the northern part of Manuel Antonio's main beach, Playa Espadilla, just 1/2 a mile down our coastal road. Continuing south are 3 more white sand beaches within the park area, as well as romantic Playa Biesanz a few miles north.

Villa CalaLuna

I just spent an amazing week in Villa CalaLuna in Costa Rica. As many other have said, the pictures of the house do not even come close to how breathtaking it is. There is a lot of open and modern space, perfect for relaxing, reading, and entertaining. There is a relaxing hammock deck that is the most beautiful place to watch the sunset and relax during the day. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and the showers were amazing. The house has its own private infinity pool that overlooks the jungle. The monkey’s come right up to the pool and to all of the porches on the house. Aside from monkeys there is a lot of wildlife that you can see from the balcony: from iguanas to exotic birds. Not only is the house an amazing place to vacation but the staff is also wonderful. While we were there, Thomas arranged all of our driving needs, not only to and from the airport, but also to the Manuel Antonio National Park. He also arranged for us to have an excellent guide while at the park, who showed us incredible animals that we otherwise would not have seen. Hazel was also amazing, she recommended lots of beaches for us to visit that were within walking distance from the house. She also recommended great local places for us to shop and eat that were also within walking distance. The local members of the town were very friendly and welcoming, everywhere we went. Finally, the staff was great in that if I had any questions they came over to the house that day to answer them or take care of an event that we had decided we wanted to do. Overall, this was the most amazing vacation I have ever been on and I would definitely go back in a heartbeat.

Villa CalaLuna is a perfect for a Costa Rican getaway

I recently returned from an amazing trip to Costa Rica and stay at Villa CalaLuna. I traveled with a group of 7 others and the villa accommodated us perfectly. The pictures definitely don't do the villa justice. The jungle setting is very private and the pool is amazing. We were provided daily entertainment by the monkeys that frequent the villa's lush trees. The ocean view is fantastic and the nightly sunsets pure magic. To my surprise there were very few bugs at the villa - inside and out. I can say that I arrived back home with zero mosquito bites. We did encounter a few insects in the house, but it was far from being problem. It wouldn't be a trip to Costa Rica without running into a few critters in the jungle.

Hazel, our concierge, took great care of us before and after our trip. She helped us plan our activities before arriving. The house was fully stocked upon our arrival with food, snacks and drinks. She even helped arrange a birthday cake for a member of our party. While we were there she helped arrange meals, grocery delivery, transportation, and provided us with any information we desired. It was a tremendous load off of our shoulders having her help during our stay. Thanks Hazel!

We found that getting around by taxi was easy and there are several great shops restaurants and bars within walking distance. We participated in many activities available in and around Quepos/Manuel Antonio including Canyoning, a sunset sail, fishing and nature hike in Manuel Antonio. Each activity was fantastic as were our guides.

We had 3 dinners and 2 breakfasts at the villa prepared by personal chefs, Merisol and Isreal (sp?). The meals they prepared were AMAZING, and their beaming personalities made the experience that much more delightful. I definitely recommend their services.

I would definitely return to Villa CalaLuna in the future, and I give it my full recommendation. It is truly paradise.

Great Costa Rican Adventure

The house was one of the better parts of our trip to Costa Rica. The pictures definitely didn't do it justice as the modern look and feel were great as well as the privacy. The house is embedded in the jungle and we got the chance to see Monkeys every morning. At night, you cannot beat the roof view to the stars. Loved the showers and the pool, which is perfectly situated at the bottom of the house. The view is absolutely majestic and is great from every room in the house. A great location, 10 minutes walk from the beach. We loved the house and would definitely go back there on our next trip to Costa Rica.

Perfect Location for Extended Families

  • Submitted: Feb 2, 2014

Our family of 6 brought my mom to Costa Rica to satisfy a lifetime dream of hers to visit the area and see the wildlife. We all were absolutely thrilled and amazed at the animals we saw right at CalaLuna! The second day of our stay we had no less than 25 squirrel monkeys on the back porch taking slices of bananas right out of our hands. We saw a baby sloth the very first day and he stayed in the same location outside the master bedroom all week. You will meet Eddie, the huge Spiny Back lizard that lays in the middle of the driveway all day long. Be wary of the capuchins -they look very friendly but when I saw one rip apart a coconut, I immediately gained a new level of respect. Do not worry about the driveway -it is a minor issue compared to the incredible views / wildlife / amenities that CalaLuna offers.

Perfection in Manuel Antonio Home Rental - Incredible Group Value

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
We returned a week ago from a wonderful 5 night stay. Our group of
7 friends (2 couples and 3 friends ... all professionals/executives) settled into this expansive architectural wonder after a friendly and informative orientation by the concierge, Hazel. She was thorough, professional, friendly and very helpful throughout our stay, including rescuing us in the middle of a challenging spanish translation with a San Jose car service driver who was transporting a late arriving member of our group. (this kind of service was invaluable on multiple occasions during our stay, including
assisting us in making in-house catering arrangements and a mangrove boat tour reservations. By the way .. we were thoroughly impressed with the caterer!

Special attributes of the home include ....ample privacy and space between
bedrooms. we had plenty of room. the bathrooms are unique and not a one of us
was disappointed with them. the water pressure is one souvenir you wish you
could take home with you!

the kitchen, including a 5'round table, was the perfect breakfast gathering
place ...while the natural symphony of bird songs provided the optimum wakeup
call !

ocean views abound .... the jungle environment is fascinating and beautiful
... a troop of squirrel monkeys strolled through the nearest trees each
afternoon and occasionally in the morning.

the verticality of the house is not recommended for the mobility-challenged.
we counted 56 steps to the beautiful pool area. the pool experience is divine
and private and includes an infinity feature.

if you've got good legs, this house is wonderful. our group gave it 7 thumbs up.
