Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This tropical mansion is truly extraordinary. From the open-air living room, suspended 40 feet above the jungle, you will be immersed in the spectacular beauty that Costa Rica is famous for. The living room is open on three sides to allow the rainforest sights and sounds to envelope you. Toucans and hummingbirds visit the tropical foliage and three species of monkeys leap from tree to tree right outside your balcony.

You'll feel like you're in the Garden of Eden. The ceiling is constructed of 24-foot post and beams to maximize the year-round cool ocean breezes and protect the living room from the tropical sun and afternoon rain showers. From the balconies, you can see the peninsula that forms Manuel Antonio National Park and the small pacific islands surrounding it.

The 500-square foot master suite is one level down from the grand salon. Its large private, ensuite bathroom has a double headed shower and stone bath with Jacuzzi. It features a large wraparound ocean view terrace, plenty of sofa seating and a king size bed.

There are two bedrooms on the next level below. They have jungle and pool views, a king size bed in each, and private bathrooms. There is another king size bedroom on the ground/pool level overlooking the garden and pool. It has a private bathroom with a sunken tub.

The jungle pool is a natural style oasis, with a rock stair entry, twenty-foot waterfall and beautiful tropical gardens. It has a large play area and a lap lane that can be used at the same time.

The 2 level pool house is one of the most relaxing parts of the home. Upstairs its 3 sofas can be converted into one king bed and one twin, or three twin beds. Great for open-air sleeping, it is always cooled by the ocean breeze and a light blanket is all that's needed. This space has its own full bathroom. The back of the pool house is nestled into the trees, while the front opens to the pool and waterfall. A great place to entertain, the pool house also has an outdoor barbecue, kitchenette with large fridge and sink. There are two air conditioned bedrooms on the lower level of the pool house, each with an open air shower. One of these bedrooms has 3 twin beds, the other a king size bed. Two of the twin beds can be converted into an additional king-size bed.

If you are counting this comes to 6 air conditioned bedrooms plus the upper pool, total 7 bedrooms. This ad and its rates are for a 5 bedroom rental for 10 guests, always private to just your group. Ask us about rates for larger groups, and even for smaller group.

The main house is four stories high and is reminiscent of an observation tower, many call it a tree house. The environmental impact is minimized with the small (600 sq. ft) footprint, but the top opens out to 1,200 square feet of beautifully designed living space. In all, there are five stories and there is an elevator wwith 3 stops for your convenience.

Costa Rica's mild climate makes it possible to leave the great room sides open to the tropical ambiance, without walls to obstruct the surrounding paradise. This is truly harmonious living by design.

Every feature of this thoughtfully designed home was created from indigenous materials and created by local craftsmen. The inspiration for the home is a Japanese Zen garden, as can be seen in the Asian style roof reminiscent of 17th century minka folk houses.

To complete your unforgettable vacation, you will have the support of a full-service management company. The home is fully staffed including your own house maids who will keep everything in top condition and will do daily laundry. A gourmet chef is available for the special rate of $500 a week, if booked at time of reserving, to prepare unforgettable tropical meals in your own home. Your concierge will assist with any travel arrangements, tours or other details that will make your stay in Manuel Antonio completely stress free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented Vista Azul for 9 days with a few of our friends (8 total). First of all, the house itself exceeded our expectations (which were based solely on the photos of the property). The house is very vertical, with lots of steps and amazing views from the top living room/kitchen/dining room area. In March 2015, when we were there, we received daily visits (around 4pm or 5pm) from roving monkeys. We could feed them bananas right inside the house! We also had a great view of a family of sloths feeding in the nearby bamboo tree. We nicknamed the iguana by the pool house "Bernice." The pool is enchanting and private with a waterfall. On days it was too warm to sun, it's nice to relax inside the pool house where you still have a great view of the pool area, but where ceiling fans cool you.

Our trip was so fantastic because of the staff at Vista Azul. Ricky was amazing and helped us several times above and beyond the call of duty. Jeff was just a friendly and helpful with cocoanut water for one of our members who took ill during the trip. Our chef was Estaban and his food was amazing! We really enjoyed the tuna he prepared, as well as his breakfast sandwiches and plenty of fresh fruit! Estaban's crab salad was delectable (and addictive!). Estaban worked very well with us as we decided each day what time to eat breakfast and dinner and what our meals would be.

Carmen was our housekeeper and she was very polite and our rooms were kept immaculately.

The whole experience was very nice. The house really feels situated in the 'jungle' with a great view of the ocean. And the location, once you reach the main road, is super convenient -- especially if you want to walk up the hill and grab lunch at Cafe Milagro!

Thanks, Vista Azul, for being such a great experience!
