At Casa Kalani, we understand the meaning of vacation. Our lives are stressful enough and planning a vacation can be fun, but tedious. We offer our guests complete trip-planning, from your arrival in San Jose to departure and everything in between- all you need to do is show up! Casa Kalani truly is a retreat, perfect for a romantic getaway, a family reunion, or a trip with friends.
Nestled in the heart of Manuel Antonio, on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Casa Kalani is a very comfortable vacation home rental. Kalani is Hawaiian for 'from the heavens' and while sitting on the master balcony, enjoying the spectacular views, one feels that much closer to heaven. Spend the day lounging by the pool, or sitting on the patio and watching the wildlife go by, or it is just a short trip down to the beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park., Close to Casa Kalani are restaurants,bars,supermarket,butcher,internet cafe, pharmacy, doctor´s office and public transportation. Casa Kalani is located at the very end of a cul de sac in a local working neighborhood. It is roughly halfway between the town of Quepos and the beaches and National Park Manuel Antonio.
The villa’s main floor is open concept, and windows abound to allow tons of natural sunlight to flood in and unobstructed views of the lush rainforest surround. The decor is crisp and clean and the Casa is equipped with quality linens and towels.
For the wildlife enthusiasts, there are many varieties of monkeys. Birders be sure to bring a pair of binoculars as mot-mot, tanagers, flycatchers, and sometimes even toucans can be seen!

“ I would be glad to recommend your place to anyone ! I forgot to tell you how many Blue Morpho butterflies we saw-several every day and one morning I lost count sitting on the balcony drinking coffee! It was a real treat to see so many...Thank you so much for the beautiful time we spent at Casa Kalani. The house is fabulous and the decor is simply gorgeous. I wish you much success with your beautiful home and hope to return next year for another delightful vacation at Casa Kalani. It is truly a little paradise on earth.”

“Thank you again for letting us stay at Casa Kalani for another night. It worked out even better for us. We loved your house and really wish we could´ve stayed there for longer. It was beautiful and the location was amazing. Thank you again for starting off our trip in such a fantastic manner and please let me know if there is anywhere online that I might leave a comment about the great time we had while we were staying at Casa Kalani.” Jonathan Webb, San Diego, California, USA March 2009
'We would like to thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We had a wonderful time revisiting Manuel Antonio and your house was in a perfect location for us. We saw several large families of howler monkeys outside your gate on two nights, and a family of capuchin monkeys one morning. The girls were entranced. Unique Tours, Kanuto's white water rafting trip, that you arranged was spectacular. We really appreciated their focus on safety. He is a great guy who gave us lots of wonderful tips on other things to see and do and even where to buy fresh shrimp and good Chilean Cabernet to enjoy by your pool. Best wishes and thank you for the opportunity.'

'I would like you to know how thoroughly I enjoyed your house. The setting is beautiful. The house is beautiful. The interior is decorated beautifully. I loved having the private pool with the waterfall. I also enjoyed lying in bed watching the Monkeys play in the trees just outside my window as well as numerous species of birds. I was taken care of from arrival to departure.
Thank you very much'

My husband, Shawn and I purchased Casa Kalani in December 2009. We have since been to our home many trips with our two small children, family and friends. It is always an adventure and we love to keep going back to enjoy the monkeys that stop by our home most
mornings. We just returned from a trip where we had Squirrel monkeys with their babies visiting, white faced monkeys and Tucans. It is so much fun to spend time with our family enjoying relaxing by the pool, cooking out, going out to eat at our favorite place Aqua Azual. If you need anything from us please don't hesitate to ask. Sheila
We are located in a local working neighborhood which is convenient to shopping, grocery store and restaurants. We recommend a small SUV if driving in Costa Rica. The roads in this region can be gravel and/or steep terrian. Our driveway does require a 4 wheel drive.
