About the property

An awe inspiring Ocean View Estate in the Jungle with an unmatched Gourmet Chef

Casa Maravilla Estate Villa is a very uniquely designed and extremely popular luxury retreat situated on over an acre of land and the only home in the area constructed entirely out of Almond wood, which gives it such a unique look and experience in a beautiful Jungle setting with an abundance of monkeys, toucans, iguanas and other animals. Several Celebrities, including the Presidents of Sony Motion Pictures and Lennar Homes (2nd largest home builder in the US), along with a few Actors, have selected Casa Maravilla Estate as their Villa of choice in Manuel Antonio.

With exquisite gardens, 6 private bedrooms/baths, this Estate provides tremendous comfort for your entire group. All bedrooms are completely air conditioned and out of sight of one another with 4 bedrooms in the Main House and 2 more in the private Casitas. The 800 square foot Rancho/ Barbeque area was designed and built for entertaining in mind. A custom bar with a Plasma TV, dining for your entire group and relaxing chairs are all nicely situated to take advantage of the tropical gardens and overlook the very enjoyable waterfall/infinity swimming pool (with bar stools in the pool) and a wading area with water jets for the kids to play in, which all overlooks the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The 30-foot high hardwood ceilings provide excellent ventilation, and sliding glass doors all the way around, allow you to either open the home completely to the fresh pacific breezes by day and the sounds of the jungle at night, or to close it up and enjoy the experience in fully air conditioned comfort. There are also 7 plasma TV’s in the Villa as well as 7 bluetooth speakers in each bedroom, living room and Rancho!

Casa Maravilla would not be a First Class Estate without providing your own Gourmet Chef to prepare up to 3 meals per day (food and beverage costs are separate). Nobody needs to shop, cook or clean as Chef Ronald, who has been the Chef at Casa Maravilla Estate for 8 years, loves his profession and many groups want to take him home with them after their stay! Ronald does it all and saves you money (some groups say over $1,000 for the week) as well by purchasing the freshest ingredients from local vendors - butchers and fisherman, where typically only Restaurants shop. Saturday mornings is the day that Ronald goes to our Farmers market and selects the best vegetables, fruit and high quality produce at a fraction of the cost of our local stores.

The stunning ocean views and spectacular nightly sunsets are sure to take your breath away as well as over 100 outdoor lights that illuminate this incredible property at night. Manuel Antonio National Park and its multiple white sand beaches rimmed with pristine rain forest, are the treasured jewel of Costa Rica’s park system and are just 5 minutes away while, Quepos, with its wide variety of shopping, restaurants, bars, markets, and sport-fishing fleet is less than 5 minutes in the other direction. Casa Maravilla Estate is centrally located to take advantage of both areas.

Three types of friendly monkeys visit the property regularly, as well as the fascinating and slow moving tree sloths (we have had up to 5 at a time), a large variety of birds, and a plethora of other sometimes hard to describe animals, so bring your camera and you’ll be sure to enjoy the best of the jungle and it’s amazing inhabitants from the terraces and gardens of this amazing luxury home.

So relax in your very own Estate Property while your personal Concierge and Vacation Coordinator along with the wonderful staff (especially the Chef) work their magic so that you can have an extremely relaxing and memorable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars - Reviewed 2 days ago for a stay in March 2015 NEW

This was our second Spring Break at Casa Maravilla with Teenage children. The house is perfect in every way-the location is in the middle of everything but private at the same time. Many updates from last year that only enhanced the property. The pool and outside areas are spectacular-the view is hard to beat. Ronald, a great chef, is the leader of a staff that takes care of your every need. We did not eat a meal out and had a variety of foods, from local to our favorites from home. Ronald is as funny as he is kind and will keep you entertained the entire trip. Xenia is a wonderful housekeeper and does your laundry everyday.

The locals know the house so they can get you for all the tours you do. We zip-lined, fished, and went on the Vacation Buggy. All excellent and Sabrina, the house concierge, did a fabulous job setting up our schedule. I could go on, but the bottom line is the place is perfect.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the amazing experience/vacation we had in Costa Rica at casa Mara villa. The staff at casa Mara villa were amazing, going above and beyond to make our stay a wonderful and unforgettable experience. From Ziana always being around cleaning up, Roger always beautifying the grounds and Ronald, well his good was amazing - a five star Neal every time. Sabrina was also very helpful setting up excursions, taxi's etc. always a prompt response from Sabrina. The staff became like family and they are amazing in every way. You do not need to go anywhere to see beautiful sunsets, animals and vibrant colorful plants, they are all at casa maravilla. This was my first trip to Costa Rica and I would definitely go back to casa Mara villa ( I am planning another trip it was that good) and I would suggest for everyone to visit as I promise you will not be disappointed. A one of a kind experience.

Paradise in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Casa Maravilla is THE place to stay! We recently enjoyed a week celebrating my mother's 90th birthday (11 of us). From the spacious rooms to the beautiful vistas, the inviting pool and beautiful gardens, it's like an oasis. Chef Ronald is not only an exceptional chef, but a warm fellow who we loved spending time with; we felt he was part of our family. Sabrina's help from the smallest details to giving us tips on activities was exceptional; she truly knows what customer service means! All of us enjoyed the Rainforest Buggy Ride; some did horseback riding, others zip lining, catamaran cruise, ATV riding and just exploring the area. It was a week to remember!

Chef Ronald has been at Casa Maravilla for over 9 years and is one of the longest tenured Chefs in Manuel Antonio. Seems like everyone wants to take him home with them. We appreciate you staying with us and hope to see you again. Happy holidays, Don

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I must say, Casa Maravilla Estate is nothing short of amazing. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, exotic animals and welcoming and caring staff, you can't help but feel like you're in paradise. You get the true Costa Rica/Jungle experience without even having to leave the house! If you do however, want to get out to do some activities, there's a binder full of information about local attractions and things to do should you want to. The lovely Sabrina is also always ready to help you with everything. When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING! From booking excursions to getting taxis, she was unbelievably helpful.

The property is well maintained, the gardens are breathtaking and there is more than enough space for everyone. We were a group of 14 people and we had more than enough space.

I can't say enough about the staff. For starters, Ron is an amazing chef. We were spoiled with delicious food and his heartwarming personality. You can't help but smile when you see Xinia. She also spoiled us by cleaning after us. Roger, well, not only is he an amazing gardener, he is unbelievably friendly. His laughter is contagious. He's also really good at calling the monkeys! Finally, as mentioned, you just fall in love with Sabrina. Always there to help with whatever is needed at the time.

We left the house 2 days ago and I've been recommending the house to everyone I see! Trust me, you won't be disappointed!!

UNBELIEVABLE VACATION

  • 5 of 5

You will NOT be disappointed. Accommodation perfect for larger groups; treated like Royalty by Ron, the amazing Chef; Zinia who ensured all rooms in this beautiful home were kept clean; Roger the groundskeeper who takes great pride in the work he does; and Sabrina who communicated with the group daily to ensure we had what we needed...i can't say enough about this place and the team at CasaMaravilla. We all bonded with them and feel blessed to have met them. If you don't take advantage of this home, you are truly missing out on a trip of a life time. I have been to many all- inclusives and this place beats all of them put together.

Fabulous Costa Rican Paradise

  • 5 of 5

WOW.......it isn't often that expectations get exceeded, but in the case of this casa I was blown away! From the amazingly beautiful grounds to the warmth and competency of the staff, my vacation was unbelievable. The layout of the house allowed our large group to comfortably gather together but also provided quiet spaces for alone time. We saw more wildlife on the property than at the local attractions. The infinity pool was amazing.....looked like you could swim the ocean and the sunset was stellar! There wasn't one thing that I would change......other than go back again!
