Overview

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.

Amazing home and staff!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing experience in this home. From the moment we reserved the property when our personal concierge contacted us, to the final moment of our amazing vacation, this experience was all that we could have asked for. The property itself is exactly as the pictures show and includes a breathtaking view, well groomed grounds, immaculate interior, amazing staff. Our family of 15 included three generations ranging in ages from 3 to 69. Everyone had a fantastic time - the home was perfect with 4 bedrooms in the home and 2 casitas on the property. I can't saw enough about the helpful and friendly staff. I have never rented a vacation home that included the help of a concierge and I can tell you that it is an amazing experience. I began emailing with Sabrina starting about 4 months before our vacation and she responded so quickly with answers to my questions and helpful tips. We wanted to have a surprise party to celebrate birthdays and Sabrina found us a local musician who turned out to be perfect for our event. She helped us book excursions and made recommendations. Her colleague Shiona found a local baker to make a delicious birthday cake. While we were there, Sabrina and Shiona were a text message or phone call away. Nothing was too small or to much trouble for them. They made a huge difference in how our vacation played out and I can't think them enough! The other staff were equally fantastic. Chef Ronald was fun and personable and made sure that we had great meals. Having a personal chef is absolutely the best. We worked with him to set the menus each day and he did all the shopping, prep and clean up. He worked so hard to ensure that we had delicious food every day. Amazing! The housekeeping and groundskeeping staff were also so helpful and friendly. They all went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. And the monkeys!!! If you want to see monkeys - this is the property for you! Every day we had a parade of monkeys come to the house several times each day. And one morning we were treated to an early morning parade of howler monkeys - a much more rare occurrence. We were thrilled!! We all loved seeing the monkeys each day and the iguana who lives near the pool! And the pool! Oh my goodness - it is beyond compare. There is a shallow area that was perfect for new swimmers, bar stools IN THE POOL where we could sit and eat appetizers and enjoy a beautiful view of the sunset. Perfect Vacation!!!!

First Rate Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I had an opportunity to stay at Casa Maravilla with nine other friends last week.

We were greeted so warmly by the staff and had an absolutely delicious dinner waiting for us from Ronaldo!

From the time we got there until the time we left we were pampered by the chef, by the house staff , by the gardener and even the security guard at night!

The house on the grounds are most gorgeous and very well-maintained and kept. We had a maintenance issue that was immediately taken care of by the concierge Sabrina .

Sabrina was also excellent in assisting and helping us with anything that we wanted to do with organizing trips , tours , massages or just getting a cab to go into town .

I will heartily recommend this place to several of my friends that are looking for a wonderful Costa Rica destination!

The house is absolutely beautiful sunsets , The pool is stunning , and sunsets are gorgeous !

Gorgeous tropical paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Maravilla experience exceeded our expectations beyond our wildest imagination. The property is surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation, and is nestled on a cliff that opens up breathtaking views to the Pacific Ocean. The gorgeous infinity pool and large indoor/outdoor spaces are exquisite for either entertaining or relaxing. You don't even have to seek the wildlife, as the monkeys, toucans, parrots, etc., live around the villa and make regular appearances around the house! The staff on site provided top notch, personalized service to meet our unique requests, and of course also provided superb living accommodations that made each of us feel so special during our stay. Sabrina, Chef Ronald, Xinia, Roger, and Walter - each of them contributed to our very memorable Costa Rica vacation that will forever and ever be in hearts! I highly recommend this place to all travelers interested in visiting Costa Rica.

Casa Maravilla - a great place to recharge!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Maravilla provides breathtaking ocean views that are only rivaled by the views of the evening sunset. The property comfortably accommodated our adult group of twelve. The staff catered to our every need which included customized meals (Chef Ronnie is fabulous),excursions, and transportation. I highly recommend booking a massage which can be given outdoors surrounded by the sounds and beauty of this Costa Rican paradise.
