Overview

Manuel Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

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. 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.

Please visit our website at www.beachhouseinfo.com. 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.

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!

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!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Voladora and had the most amazing time of our lives! The pictures do not do the house justice the views were spectacular, the bed was comfortable, and we loved the mini library with the different books and board games. Julie, thank you so much for your detailed book left on the table it was extremely helpful. We loved the 3 dogs, I have a pug back home and really missed him but having the friendly puppies there was awesome especially nina and her coconut! I personally loved the stairs, it was a great workout and helped justify me trying a new dessert at all the delicious restaurants nearby every night.

We were so sad to leave- especially our new friends Bismark and his family! They are the kindest people and we feel blessed to have met them.

We stayed during rainy season so it was very humid but the house is very open so air gets in easily- for the price this place can not be beat! We hope we can return sometime.

Great views, close to restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Julie's place is very well located in Manuel Antonio. Just down the road from several good restaurants (Cafe Milagro, Emilio's, etc.). It's a bit hard to tell from maps or online research, but after being there and driving through the area, I felt that this place was much better located than most others.

The views can't be beat. We went out to eat at view restaurants several times and felt that the view from our porch was better. You can also hear the howler monkeys and other kinds of wildlife in the trees while you look out over the ocean.

It's also great to have an onsite caretaker. We had a few questions throughout our stay and Bismark was very helpful, despite not speaking fluent English.The 3 cute, well-behaved outdoor dogs on the property were a big bonus for us -- one of them was our sidekick throughout our stay.

The only thing to be aware of is that there is no AC. We're from Seattle, so Manuel Antonio was hot for us generally and didn't cool down too much at night (at least this time of year). There is usually ocean breeze, and there is a fan in the bedroom that helps air circulation. Overall we felt that the pro's of this place outweighed that and we were more able to experience Manuel Antonio here - it's just something to be aware of.

Great place overall. Thanks Julie and Bismark for a great stay!

The best ocean view, garden view, sunset , sunrise , birds, monkeys, all from this lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it just from the begining.The view from all around the house is breathtaking. Private and lovely house on the top of the hill. Stairs were a challenge, but the outside shower was heaven right after. Saw all kinds of exotic birds and monkeys, listened to their noises in the night , enjoyed the botanical garden while taking the stairs up and down and smelled the Ylang-ylang flowers at night. Very friendly people that take care of the house, too. Not far away from beaches and restaurants, ATM, supermarket and bus station.We enjoyed all our 9 days stay.

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.
