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.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful house. Once up the stairs to the house, we had a very peaceful place to enjoy incredible views and to be surrounded by Costa Rican wildlife. We were regularly entertained by groups of monkeys, sloths and colourful birds in the trees right outside the house. We saw much more wildlife from our rental house then we did in Manuel Antonio National Park! We would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway in a beautiful country- you just have to be able to manage a long flight of stairs to the house. It's great exercise though!

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.

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

I read good reviews on this house but my expectations were greatly exceeded. This house makes perfect use of its outstanding surroundings. Everywhere you look their are breath taking views, exotic birds and monkeys.

The property care taker Bizmark and his family were amazing as you'll read in others reviews. Before arriving to the house my wife and I went on an atv tour that left her rain jacket coated in mud. Bizmark insisted on washing it for her and the great service did not stop until we left.

The only negative thing I could say is that we weren't able to stay longer. We will surely return to Manuel Antonio and will make sure to stay at this house again when we do.

Beautiful paradise

  • 5 of 5

Casa voladora was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I could not have picked a better place to spend our honeymoon. The view of the ocean is breathtaking. We were also able to see much wildlife including monkeys, a sloth, toucans, and other birds from the house. Julie is extremely responsive via email and has a very well organized manual for the area ready upon arrival. Highly recommend this house for a getaway in paradise!

Manuel Antonio National Park is one of Costa Rica 's best known and most often visited parks.The area is home to over 353 species of birds. Howler and white-faced monkeys, two-toed and three-toed sloths, coati-mundi and raccoons frequent the beaches in and outside the Park.

The National Park area offers some of the best beaches on Costa Rica 's Pacific coast for surfing, swimming and snorkeling. Within the area, there is much to enjoy; bird watching, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, and boat trips for fishing or to watch dolphins.

Located besides the town of Quepos in the Central Pacific Zone, the area is one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica.
