VILLA CALALUNA - AND 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

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Tropical Luxury

  • 5 of 5
We had a terrific time at Villa Calaluna. The property overlooks the bay with stunning views from the many balconies. We made several trips to the pool each day. Although we didn’t see any sloths, we were visited by monkeys, iguanas, a large tree frog, and many geckos. The property was centrally located in Manuel Antonio with easy access to several beaches, the national park, and a variety of restaurants. We initially planned to walk to the beach, but it’s a good 20-30 minute walk from the house. The drive was quick and simple.

The property manager, Thomas, was very friendly and did a nice job showing us around the house. He also provided us with some useful tips to navigate the area. Be sure to ask him about parking near the beaches! Thomas’ assistant, Hazel, helped us to book a surf lesson, which we highly recommend.

Traveler considerations:
The property is air conditioned only in the bedrooms/suites. The main house is cooled by fans and by the sea breeze. When we visited, the temperatures were between 95 - 104 degrees F so we were missing the AC. The driveway is very steep and fairly long, so be sure to plan accordingly when walking out to the main road. We only visited with our family of 5 and we were challenged to use much of the space. This is a home that is better suited for large groups and/or multiple families.

Hidden Gem of Manuel Antonio

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying Villa Calaluna for a week this past March. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing it was. I felt like royalty from the moment I stepped off the plane in San Jose. Our ride from the airport was taken care of for pre-arrival and we even got to stop at some scenic points along the route. The house is gorgouse and it sits at the lowest point of the street so we had unobstructed views of the ocean below us. I loved the hammock deck which had an amazing view and was always under the shade so I could enjoy it even during the hottest parts of the day. Hazel and Thomas were both so accommodating. They answered all of our questions and set up any excursions we wanted for us which is extremely helpful in a country that I do not speak the language. Even though we were immersed in the jungle around us, the critters never found their way inside. The house was always clean and fresh. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking to stay in Manuel Antonio.

The bedrooms were all very spacious and well decorated and the open concept was perfectly suited for the environment. There was a lot to do in the area and the locals were all very friendly. Overall-excellent vacation and a stunning house.

Most Incredible Trip!

  • 5 of 5
This Villa took my Costa Rica trip from ordinary to extraordinary! To start, the building itself is breathtakingly beautiful. The architecture is modern, but also has a cozy feel. The infinity pool is fantastic, as it overlooks the jungle allowing you to truly interact with the wildlife (the monkeys were so friendly)! The views were unforgettable. The huge spa showers and hammocks also give the villa a "spa" feel.
The service was also great! Everyday, the villa was cleaned spotless from top to bottom! Everyone was so friendly and accommodating to our schedules.
Between all of its features and incredible service, the villa is perfect for any type of trip from a honeymoon to a girls trip to a family vacation!
I will definitely be back!

Villa CalaLuna

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.
