About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Casa Capuchin is a modern, three level, 4 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath home perched on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, tucked into lush tropical jungle. The moment you walk in the door your eyes are drawn to the endless postcard views of the ocean and the renowned Manuel Antonio National Park.

Located on Pacific Canyon Drive, one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Manuel Antonio, the villa is just a 5 minute drive from the beaches and the world famous national park. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance and a wide selection of activities that are conveniently close by.

This picturesque villa has a state of the art design that maximizes the positive effects of living by the sea. Its high ceilings and open floor plan facing the ocean allow you to fully immerse yourself in your environment, enhancing your enjoyment of the tropics.

Much less visible but just as important are the 67 roof mounted solar panels. On average they generate more than enough electricity to run the entire house making your stay with us a “green” and sustainable one. Additionally, any excess energy is pushed out to the grid where it is used by other consumers that might otherwise be using carbon generated power. We are proud to be the first house in the Manuel Antonio area with this capability thus contributing to Costa Rica's goal of achieving carbon neutrality.

The villa is equipped with all the amenities to ensure your comfort, allowing you to savor your surroundings. It can accommodate 10 guests in the 4 bedrooms and is ideal for families, honeymooners, couples, and groups of friends.

The two upper level bedrooms have king size beds and breathtaking ocean views. The lower level bedroom has a queen size bed, a twin bed and a private balcony with jungle views. The 4th guest bedroom (located off an internal courtyard) has a queen size bed and a loft sitting area with jungle and partial ocean views. All bedrooms are air conditioned and have private baths.

The open air living area is perfect for lounging and dining with plenty of ceiling fans and an ocean breeze to keep you cool throughout your day. It also allows you to easily observe the local wildlife as they go about their daily routine. Three species of monkeys, sloths, toucans, iguanas and geckos often pass by providing entertainment, educational and photographic opportunities.

The kitchen is stocked with modern appliances. A private chef can be provided upon request, and don't worry about the dishes as daily (excluding Sunday) maid service is included.

This villa was recently sold and the new owners have made numerous improvements to the property. The kitchen has been refurbished and the living room furniture has been replaced. They have also added new safety railings to the stairs and pool. Other improvements are ongoing but will not interfere with your stay.

Your concierge can help you with transportation, tour reservations, activities, restaurants and recommendations for the best places to shop for souvenirs, beachwear, groceries and more.

Come enjoy Casa Capuchin and immerse yourself in the absolute expression of tropical luxury. Call us today to start planning your ultimate escape to paradise and let us make your vacation a truly memorable experience.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

This house is located down the hill from the main road from Quepos to Manuel Antonio Park. A 5 minute walk UP the hill gets you to a number of good restaurants, supermarket, etc. We had numerous monkey visitors which made the trip for our two boys. I would not recommend this house to children under the age of 10. The stairs and railings are not up to US safety standards. That being said, the house is truly awesome. Air conditioned bedrooms, open air living space with an infinity pool. Our housekeeper, Yesenia tidied the house everyday, and did laundry, no worry vacationing. Alex the house manager took care of everything else from taxis to dinner reservations to activity arrangements. The view is truly spectacular. You feel as though you are living in a tree house, albeit, a luxurious one.

Incredible home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

The home was fantastic. We were 3 couples and we all had great thoughts of this incredible home. We loved the open floor plan for the common areas. The maid took great care of the home and kept it immaculate all week. Alex the property manager arranged everything for us for all of our excursions. We loved the fact the monkeys came to visit each day. We had both Capuchin and squirrel monkey’s visit the home during the week as we sat around the pool. We loved how the Capuchins would come by and lounge around the pool, sometimes taking hanging half in and half out of the pool. Many restaurants are close by, and I was able to check several items off my bucket list in Costa Rica. This is a great area and had days with relaxing at the beach and other days were action packed with fishing, ATV tour, sunset cruising. Definitely stick with seafood in the area. You cannot go wrong with seafood. Definitely try the ceviche.

Don't think twice...this place is the best!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Capuchin is an amazing place to find peace amongst nature. Not only is the house beautiful but the area is very secure and the just don't do it any justice. It was enjoyable for our whole group which included young children and their grandparents. We interacted with 3 types of monkeys, we saw sloths, toucans, beautiful birds and every sound nature has to offer. The staff was superb, especially Ms. Desenia the housekeeper. She is so nice and attentive that you feel right at home. Alex was very helpful and kind. The restaurants and activities in the area are great. I have absolute nothing negative to say and we will be going back soon.

Breathtakingly beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a week at this incredible property. As we arrived, Alex was there to greet us, saying "welcome home" with a big inviting smile. Alex was extremely helpful from explaining details for the grill, kitchen, alarm and house music system. He even took care of ordering grocery delivery services, to navigating and coordinating excursions. We stayed during rainy season and the first night the power went out intermittently. Without hesitation Alex had extra candles delivered though we didn't end up needing them. Yesenia was wonderful and kept everything clean and tidy. We didn't talk much but her efforts weren't overlooked. The details from pretty towel animals in the rooms for decoration to organizing the items in the refrigerator and providing laundry services. I'm telling you, this was a vacation of perfection!! Alex checked in on us frequently making sure we were comfortable and enjoying the stay in Costa Rica. The indoor/outdoor living situation exposed us to some insects in the evenings but we had repellent incense sticks which worked great. It was something we had to adjust for but was like a dream being able to enjoy the climate and nature while relaxing in the living space. Again, I feel inclined to state just how amazing the views are and from every room!! I can't say enough good things, book this house, you won't be dissatisfied!! Pura Vida!

Excellent location!! Beautiful home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 10 with age range from 5 to 70. We stayed one week for Easter. The location is perfect, within walking distance to groceries and good quality restaurants.

The home itself is perfect for large and small families alike. All four bedrooms are clean with good furnishings and comforts. The two bedrooms on the top have absolutely amazing views. The third bedroom is one floor below the common area, and has very convenient smaller beds that makes the room perfect for couples with children (where my wife and 5 and 7yo stayed). The bottom room has tons of privacy, and a neat set up with the bed in a loft, and the bottom with a small living space.

The common area was a unique retreat with an open air plan, perfect views, clean modern floors and furnishings, and plenty of space. The house keeping was amazing, she was incredibly helpful and courteous, and left our home spotless every day. Our property manager was also very helpful with both the check in and check out, and he was very quick to respond and help with making reservations for both dinner and activities. We had wildlife visit us every single day. We saw more Howler monkeys, Capuchins, squirrel monkeys and Toucans quite frankly at the house than we did visiting the national park!

The walk to the beach is not that bad for the physically able. It is a 20-30minute walk to the quiet end of the beach, or if you are renting a car, you can easily drive down and park right on the beach with 4WD.

The only big consideration people should take (and this is not a criticism) is safety if they are coming with young children. We had a 5 and 7yo, and we did fine. But the stairs do not have child safe railings. It was ok, because we just set rules for them to only go downstairs alone, and upstairs with a grownup. And the balconies are secured as seen on photos with the frame and steel cables with about 1 foot space. Again, with proper supervision and good kids, this is a great home, but this is not the right home for a nine month old to crawl around with you minding the kitchen. If you are concerned, talk to the property manager first before booking. If very young children are not a concern for your family, then by all means book without hesitation! You will not regret it!!
