Overview

Manuel Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, sleeps 6 + double air bed if required

Imagine being 4 levels up, nestled in Costa Rica’s spectacular, pristine canopy. Welcome to Jungle Roost! Enjoy your morning coffee on the wraparound deck watching monkeys foraging and making their way across the treetops.

This 2,500 ft2 home has 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, and is fully and comfortably furnished. It has floor to ceiling windows with unobstructed views designed to bring the outside into the open and welcoming interior. The architectural design of this unique home includes numerous sliding glass doors that open to allow breezes through all 3 floors and bedrooms. Sliding screens and ceiling fans keep A/C use to a minimum.

The ground level has ample parking for your SUV, a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer, and a surf board should you be so inclined. The main level includes a spacious great room, fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar/island, deck surrounding the living area, and two piece bathroom.

Walk up one level to the expansive master bedroom with queen size bed, sliding doors to the wraparound deck, and massive windows for unobstructed views of the canopy wildlife. This level also has a full bathroom with a glass block, walk-in shower.

Walk up another level to the fourth floor where there are two lovely bedrooms with queen size beds, a full bathroom with a glass block, walk-in shower. Both bedrooms have floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on two walls providing access to the wraparound deck where there is a large outdoor chesterfield for quiet reading or naps. Don’t be surprised if a monkey (or 10!) sneaks past. Stay still and they will just amble by looking to jump from the balcony to the nearest tree. You will be tempted to feed them but please refrain – there is plenty of healthy food in the jungle.

The nearby beach is gorgeous and quiet. If you are in the mood for more people, funky bars, good restaurants, surf schools, groceries parasailing and fun shopping, just stroll 15 or 20 minutes along the white sand to Manuel Antonio.

The name says it all!

  • 5 of 5

Within 10 minutes of arrival we had monkeys on the deck and a 3 toed sloth on a nearby tree. The pool is large for a private home and the water was the warmest we've ever had in Costa Rica. This place is completely private. The house and amenities where beyond our expectations (by a long shot). Beds were very comfortable with AC in each room. Kitchen was very well equipped with everything you need. Heather was at our beckon call if we needed anything. Look no further than the Jungle Roost for your next stay. We'll be back again.

Paradise...LOVED the Jungle Roost!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fabulous week in Manuel Antonio at Jungle Roost with my husband, 4 children (in their 20's) and one significant other. Heather is a friendly, gracious and attentive owner, who was at our beck-and-call for any questions big or small. This home offered everything we could have wanted. The house is beautiful from both an architectural and decorating standpoint. It is also perfectly situated so that you feel privacy / seclusion, yet the town and the beach were a 10 minute walk. Best of both worlds. We loved putting on some music and swimming in the pool at night under the stars. We saw 2 varieties of monkeys, Toucans (and many other birds) and butterflies at the house - the monkeys definitely put on a show that was exciting to watch. Have your camera handy!! We did an ATV tour in Jaco and the ADR "10 in 1" tour in Manuel Antonio and both were so much fun. The beach is beautiful and was not crowded. We had a 4WD (recommend) SUV which allowed us to bring a cooler and all our gear to the beach very easily. We used a company recommended by Heather for some Parasail and jetski fun one day. Very, very memorable vacation - HIGHLY recommended this amazing home!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 4 sons stayed at Jungle Roost last month. We had a wonderful time! The house is clean and perfect for vacationing. We saw so much wildlife in the backyard! Even more than at the park. My kids loved the pool, monkeys and finding the sloth that lives in the trees surrounding the property. We especially enjoyed how private the backyard was.

I would highly recommend this property!

Jungle Roost is Jungle Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two other friends had the pleasure of staying at Jungle Roost last month for an extended week. (We wisely added on two extra travel days so we would lengthen our time at the house.) All week I said that it should be renamed Jungle Heaven...we were more than thrilled with our spectacular setting. The house is eclectic and fun, always a new piece of art or object to discover every day. And don't get me started on the wraparound deck. The perfect place to watch the wildlife on the stunning grounds. Our favourite spot though was the covered dining set on the pool deck...we enjoyed many a dinner there.

A typical day for us was walking the 10 minutes to the beach, strolling the length of the beach (with the odd stop at the beach restaurant half way down) and then doing our groceries and cabbing home from the village at the end of the beach. Going down to the beach at sunset with a couple of cocktails was also spectacular. Our two activities were the National Park and zip lining. Honestly, without a word of a lie, I think Heather's property had more wildlife to offer than the Park. Maybe it was a quiet day there, but you can't beat the "monkey shows', birds and butterflies at Jungle Roost. (The sloths were elusive that week both at the park and the house) The beach at the Park is lovely though, and I wished I had brought my bathing suit. Zip lining through the company Amigos del Rio was amazing. Heather will set up your excursions...she is as helpful and resourceful as can be, from finding live music for us to enjoy, to arranging the shuttle service from the airport (made life so much easier). She greatly added to the positive experience of our new home away from home. Can't wait to return!

Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home right away! Heather is so helpful. She is a caring person with a big heart. Now I can honestly say I have a friend in Costa Rica. We brought our 9 year old and 12 year old and they just loved it! The capuchin monkeys would come and visit us frequently. The Jungle Roost truly made it feel like a wonderful vacation. This home allowed you to relax and see the beauty of Costa Rica all in one place. We are already planning to stay at this lovely home next February! Thanks Heather:)

Amazing House in the Jungle

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I and two other couples just returned from Jungle Roost - very reluctantly! We loved the place and we love the area. It is, indeed, almost paradise. Communication with owner Heather was excellent. She was always very prompt to respond to any request. We had a minor mechanical issue, she had it resolved within a couple of hours. I recommend her place highly. The gardens are really spectacular with beautiful flowers everywhere. And don't pass up the chance to enjoy the garden swing! We had multiple visits from two kinds of monkeys, quite entertaining! Although not really a Gay Destination, Manuel Antonio is certainly Gay Friendly. Our group had a wonderful week of beach and fine food. We all hope to return some day.
