Charming House - Breathtaking Ocean Views/Walk to Beach

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 0 - 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!

Fantastic location and beautiful house. If you want animals, this is the house to have.

  • 5 of 5

Bismark and his family are such very wonderful people. His pets are so cute too and greet you every time you pass by. 3 types of Monkeys, Sloth and a Tamandua in the trees right outside the house. Toucans, hummingbirds, Macaws and vultures flying all around. 130 steps up to the house keeps one fit, so you need to be prepared for that, but a pulley mechanism carries all your luggage and groceries for you, just not you! MA is a wonderful place and this house is close to the beach and town and all its wonderful restaurants. However, the track to the beach (or more importantly back up again) will take about 30 minutes and its rough terrain. Best if you have a 4x4 car. Highly recommend this rental house, we will be staying here again, hopefully real soon. Was sorry to leave. Its clean and tidy with everything you really need. Kitchen is small but I have seen major restaurants with kitchens of this size, so its not a problem at all. There are 4 terraces so you really do get a great view of the tree tops and the ocean. I cannot say anything bad about this rental house, I wish it was mine!

Tidy home set high above the pacific

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with wonderful caretaker and family living right on the property. The views of the pacific and Manuel Antonio park are second to none. The wildlife from the deck is amazing. Sixteen squirrel monkeys passed right by the deck on our last morning. You do have to be willing to do the stairs (129) to use the home but we just felt that allowed us to eat more. Great location.

Owner's Response: Hello! I'm so glad you had a good time despite the rain. Yes, October is the rainiest month all year. I'm sorry! I thought you knew since you researched and booked it. Shoot. Well, your review now serves as a good check for other potential visitors for October. So they know that lots of rain is possible. Thank you. And yeah, not having a TV is a conscious choice we've made. There's decent wifi and a docking station for music and we didn't want to add more technology to the feel of the house. I'm really, really glad you still had a wonderful time! (: (: Cheers, Julie

Beautiful escape in the Costa Rican rainforest

Amazing time! Charming and well kept house in the trees, surrounded by wildlife. Bismarck, his family and doggies were top notch. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful house with a beautiful outlook - and wildlife everywhere - even a day with Raoul!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here - the peace and quiet of the location with stunning views and the endless variety of wildlife on the doorstep - truly unforgettable!

Get a bottle of wine, some bread and cheese and just spend the evening on the deck watching the sun go down and the monkeys play - heaven.

And the wonderful Bismark and family always there to help

This was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica and we loved the closeness to the beaches and bars and restaurants of Manuel Antonio

If you get chance then walk to Playa Biesanz before 7am to get the beach and water to yourself - memorable and beautiful

Thank you so much and we didn't want to leave

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.
