Welcome to Akira Reserve, where the rain forest meets the beach in beautiful Manuel Antonio! The Bali House (known locally as Casa Akira) is a 5 bedroom 7 bath Balinese Villa nestled into the rain forest just steps away from the beach. This exotic tropical villa is the only rental home on a 50-acre rainforest parcel bordering one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Our location is perfect for guests who love the beach and want to maximize their beach time. We provide lounge chairs, hammocks and a beach attendant for our guests. Most rental homes in Manuel Antonio are perched high in the hills and you must drive or walk down steep hills to get here. At the Bali House, you simply walk down our garden path and you are on the beach in 1 minute! Come and enjoy our exotic hideaway in the most desirable location that Manuel Antonio has to offer - in the rain forest, yet on the beach.
About Villa Akira: Villa Akira was designed by Balinese architect Ketut Arthana. Arthana is internationally recognized for his insightful work in designing luxury residences, tropical resorts and spas throughout Asia, Hawaii, North America and Europe including the elegant Puri Woolandari hotel in Bali, one of the Small Leading Hotels of the World. The villa was initially designed and framed in Bali from Indonesian ironwood. It was disassembled and shipped to Costa Rica along with all the furnishings and finishes and it was carefully reconstructed by a team of Balinese craftsmen.
Villa Staff: The Bali House is staffed by a manager/concierge, housekeeping, gardener, daily pool service, and maintenance staff. Your Concierge will be happy to arrange transportation from the International Airport to the house, reserve tours, hire a private chef, or anything else you need during your stay.
Villa Akira is owned by a small group of friends.
The owner's chose Manuel Antonio because of it's natural beauty and for the National Park and the many amenities and adventure tours available in this area of Costa Rica.
