|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Casa Mobamgo rests on one of the only true expansive estates located in the heart of Manuel Antonio. Surrounded by three acres of primal rain forest, this incredible home was designed to take in the close ocean views. The wall of windows frames the jungle valley and ocean view for the entire living area which includes the living room, dining area, wet bar, and enormous gourmet kitchen as well as the outdoor decks and infinity pool. You will spend your entire day on this one level and never have to bother with stairs.
There are 6 spacious bedrooms on the other two floors. The three bedrooms upstairs include two large master bedrooms, each with elegant bathrooms. The grand master bedroom has an ornate bathroom with Jacuzzi Tub.
Decks and balconies surround the home on every level so you can enjoy the gentle breezes as you listen to the surf breaking in the distance. The infinity pool is just outside from the living room and is flanked by two more balconies.
One of the most unique features of this estate is the private drive of Casa Mogambo which twists and turns through their private jungle, over a stream, and up to the house nestled in the heart of this three acre private estate. The scenic drive is something right out of Jurassic Park with trees towering over. The owner took extra care not to disturb any of the trees on the estate when building as not to disturb the natural beauty and habitat for wildlife that surrounds this home every day.
The gourmet kitchen is unmatched in Manuel Antonio which includes a professional Kitchen Aide oven, professional Fridgadaire refrigerator and freezer and oversized island for food preparation and serving.
The owners love to eat, drink and entertain, so the large open living area naturally includes a wet bar as a centerpiece for your gatherings. The luxurious floor of the entire home is covered with solid limestone that is a treat on bare feet.
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your assistance in booking such a wonderful vacation. Manuel Antonio was truly a magical place. We met wonderful people, enjoyed amazing views and loved seeing the wildlife in the jungle. Casa Bella Vista was spectacular. We had to make ourselves leave the house to enjoy other adventures. But each day we would quickly get back to the wonderful pool and fantastic landscape. The house staff were great. We appreciate everything they did for us. Sani is amazing. We feel like we have made a new friend. His knowledge and suggestions made it the perfect trip. Costa Rica did not disappoint.
Our group of friends are already talking about where we could take our next trip. All of us are stumped to come up with a place that could compare. My guess is that we will be back. For now, we have replenished our stock of wonderful stories and have our hundreds of photos to reminisce over. Now that we are back in the deep freeze of Indiana, (I can't imagine what you are dealing with in Chi-town), we are longing to be back in the warmth! But it was certainly a wonderful break from the cold.
Thanks again for your help.
What a magical place - first you come down a private drive through the rainforest over a bridge to the amazing three story house which is surrounded by the ocean. There is more wildlife on this property than the National Park. When you enter the house the view just hits you - it is so close and grand. You hear the ocean from every level of the house. The beautiful infinity pool (which our grandchildren loved) is overlooking the ocean with a wrap around balcony. The pool is on the same level as the main living area and kitchen so it is easy to watch over the children and is convenient to the kitchen. All three levels of the house have wrap around balconies with a view of the ocean and seating. Every bedroom and bathroom is beautiful. It is located close to the beach and popular restaurants and stores but also has complete privacy. You will not want to leave.
This place is so private, its like having your own private national zoo! Theres a long driveway which is windy and perfect for sightseeing.We saw far more wildlife here then in M.A National Zoo! ( which we basically saw nothing).
We had a sloth almost in arms reach, all the different monkeys (daily) really cool lizards, birds, and a few animals I didn't know. Amazing! The kids had a wonderful time playing around in the pool while we relaxed on the balcony. Also, part of why we chose this house is because it has a hugh back up generator, and friends of ours whom had visited Costa Rica lost electricity more then once while vacationing, and were very frustrated about it. The views are unreal and the sound of the waves soothing.The rental process was smooth, and the people were very nice to deal with. I highly recommend Visiting Costa Rica and this home!!

I really cant say enough about this place, we took our whole family down to Costa Rica 12 in all ages 7 months to 65 yrs and everything in between. Each and everyone one of us had the time of our lives! This home is amazing!! We actually stayed in early November of 2007, (sorry it took so long to post a review) We ALL still talk about this home and how much we enjoyed it! The people are so friendly we even adopted our own cab driver Gilberth, he was GREAT! If you get a chance ask for him, they all know each other! The pool was the most beautiful we have every seen. My husband I had our morning coffee sitting on the balcony of the master bedroom and watched the sunrise, it was so relaxing! The kids did all of the activities available around Manuel Antonio, they picked them up and dropped them back off at the house, it was great! We also did some fishing. The monkeys showed up like clockwork everyday and we even had a sloth in our yard! The home had everything we needed and we just did not want to leave. I could go on forever, but I'll stop here. We just dream of a chance to come back here! BEST VACATION EVER!
Other Activities: zip line, kayak, mangrove tour, etc
Golf: The closest golf course to Manuel Antonio is about 45 minutes away
