Charming House - Breathtaking Ocean Views/Walk to Beach

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Full Bathroom + outdoor shower

Casa Voladora sits on a bluff overlooking Punta Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. It is a 10-15 minute walk to both Playa Espadilla and Playa Biesanz.

The house was designed by an award-winning architect to highlight and emphasize the area’s natural beauty. There are breathtaking views from every window and terrace. Even the bathrooms have a spectacular view. A tropical forest surrounds the back providing privacy and a front row seat to Costa Rica’s exotic plants and wildlife.

Casa Voladora has one private bedroom on the second floor and is best suitable for a couple, although the downstairs daybed is suitable to sleep one more - but that person would be sleeping in living room and it's not a pull out bed - it's just more of a quite large window seat. It is an intimate and romantic setting with several private terraces. The architect designed the house in a European style. It is simple and elegant in its construction.

We also have a two bedroom house Casa Mirador - (Property #150823)

Stunning House in Beautiful Manuel Antonio: The house has fantastic views of Playa Biesanz, Playa Espadilla and Manuel Antonio National Park. There are often white faced monkeys that use the trees by the house as a route to get down to the beach. Toucans and sloths also visit frequently. There is a luggage elevator that will ensure that the only thing you need to get up the stairs is yourself and our onsite caretaker, Bismark, who can help you with your items.

Walk to the Beach/Walk to Bus: It's a 10-15 minute walk from the house down to the main beach, Playa Espadilla. This beach is good for bodysurfing, boogie boarding or surfing or swimming in the waves. You can swim here or keep walking along the beach (20 min.) to the National Park. You could also walk (15-20 minutes) to Playa Biesanz which is a protected bay and good for swimming and snorkeling. They are both easily accessible from the house. It is about a 10 minute walk up the hill to the main road where the buses run as well. These buses go into Manuel Antonio and Quepos about every half hour and there are lots of taxis in the area.

Our stay was incredible!

  • 5 of 5

The description was spot on. If you're looking for all-inclusive resort style stays, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a truly once in a lifetime stay with your personal, very own house in the jungle, this is your spot. You arrive and are greeted by the caretaker Bismarck, his family and his 3 awesome perritos. Your stay in paradise comes with a daily workout of 121 steps straight up the side of the mountain to reach a house with the most incredible view of both playa espadilla and biesanz, 180 degrees of pure magnificence. The house is equipped with all the essentials, this does not include a tv, grab a book or play one of the many games in the house. No alarm clock necessary, the monkeys have you covered, I guarantee you see them almost daily and hear them on your roof! We could not have been more pleased with the location, 10 minute walk from two separate beaches and a 10 minute walk up to numerous restaurants!

Julie the owner was also very kind and actually gave us a free upgrade when the larger house was open!

Bismarck is incredibly attentive and will take care of any of your needs, you just have to ask. He asked daily if we needed anything or wanted the house cleaned, but we were in the house so little, it was truly unnecessary but nonetheless, his care for you is incredible!

We hope you love it as much as we did and Pura Vida!

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It is close to the beach and restaurants. It has all the amenities you will need. Julie has even supplied a Boogie board, cooler and beach chairs (for $10, at the beach, you can rent chairs and an umbrella for the day). The main deck has an incredible view of the beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park. You can even see the sunset from the house (do not miss the sunsets from the beach, especially the beaches near Manuel Antonio). The private outdoor shower is the best especially after the walk back from the beach or just to cool off in general. You do have to be in reasonable shape to walk up the stairs to the house or just take your time and enjoy all the plants and trees along the way. We always stopped halfway up to chat with Bismark and his family. The dogs (especially Nina, would always escort us back to the house). From the deck, we saw White faced & Squirrel monkeys, Macaws, Toucans, a sloth and other interesting birds. We did not see the Howler monkeys but you could hear them. Bismark, his family and dogs were a blessing. So helpful, so kind. We will not forget this house or Bismark and his family. The owner Julie was very helpful and made the whole experience very easy. Thanks. A few things we enjoyed: El Santuario Zip Lining, Rainmaker hike, Jungle night tour, local beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park (go early, 7:00am) and do all the trails, then hang out at the beach for the rest of the day (bring food and drinks).

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The house was completely as advertised. There are four balconies on 3 sides of the house, offering brilliant views of the ocean and forest. Very private. We had our meals on the main balcony - imagine waking up to howler monkeys and enjoying morning coffee as you watch toucans, wild parrots, squirrel monkeys, white faced monkeys, all close enough to see them clearly and take brilliant photos. An armadillo visited one evening and we saw the resident sloth numerous times. The house is well designed for ventilation and there is a very charming and helpful caretaker on the property. The steps to the house sounded daunting but they are not a vertical climb - more a zig zag with a "landing area" between each set of about 10 stairs. We would love to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are so glad you had a good time at the house. I'm glad you saw Raoul, the sloth. He visits off and on. Slowly. (: Thank you again and you are welcome back anytime!

Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

This place is special! The view, the outdoor shower (monkey spotting while showering was a highlight), and wonderful caretaker Bismarck all contributed to a memorable stay.

Owner's Response: Yes, Bismarck is amazing; we love him. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience! Come back anytime! P.S. to other travelers - we have an indoor (albeit monkey free) shower as well. (:

Amazing Tree House in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described, and we found it even exceeded our expectations. It is set in the trees on the hillside with a panoramic view of the ocean.

It was clean and well maintained. We also felt very safe.

We saw and heard monkeys in the trees every day, along with many birds and other wildlife. Location was ideal with easy access to beaches and nearby restaurants.

To reach the house you need to climb a lot of steps, so would recommend for the fit only.

We enjoyed the work-out several times a day!

Wifi also very good.
