About the property

Luxury Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Swimming Pool, A/c, Wifi, Tv

This beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, multi-level villa just entered the rental market at an unbeatable value. The gorgeous jungle setting home is just off the main road to Manuel Antonio beach, perched high on a hill overlooking the lush pura vida valley and receives constant breezes and a slice of ocean views.

The main level offers an open floor plan with windowed walls that fully open in the front and rear of the home maximizing your jungle experience. The spacious kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and custom made wood cabinets that compliment the 25 foot teak ceilings.

The master suite, located above the main living area, features a king size bed and a bathroom suite with a jacuzzi tub, walk in closet and a private terrace with a gorgeous view of the rainforest canopy while enjoying the ocean sunsets.

The other two bedrooms are located below the main house in the lower villa and offers privacy and unbeatable green forest views. The two rooms are linked by a common bathroom with a double sink marbled vanity and an expansive deck.

The infinity swimming pool is nestled in the jungle maximizing your rainforest experience. The deck is spacious and wraps around the property offering ample sitting areas to enjoy the sounds of birds and wildlife with wonderful views of the jungle canopy.

Valle Pura Vida is one of Manuel Antonio's premier residential communities. It is quiet, offers a central location to restaurants and bars with easy beach access. The villa is surrounded with plenty of wildlife and borders a small river which is an amazing hiking experience.

Located on a dead-end country road, you will enjoy complete privacy with all the amenities and the full experience of why one comes to Costa Rica!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect Place. 10 min drive from most of the attractions (you could bike or even walk if you wanted). The setting was beautiful. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. They have wi-fi if you can pull yourself away from the fantastic surroundings. There is a beautiful balcony overlooking the valley that we would sit on in the evenings. This place was perfect !, you can't beat the value. This truly was a hidden gem! I would definately recommend it to anyone! ( I really hope to be back there someday!)

Great Villa

  • 4 of 5

Tradewinds Villa was everything we hoped for. It was clean, comfortable, and well located. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones we have ever slept on....including our own at home! The staff did everything they could to make our stay awesome. Celia kept our place spotless, Mariana took care of our tours and other needs, and Eduardo took care of any minor maintenance items.

The driveway is is the local terrain. I would recommend a car for your stay. Everything is a 10 minute ride or less. There are tons of local groceries, shops, and the beach at Playitas is very close. You just drive out to the beach and park on the sand under the trees.

There are local restaurants EVERYWHERE. Our top three were Café Milagro, Ronny's Place, and El Avion....

The first floor of the property is not air it did get a little warm inside first thing in the morning and at sunset. But there are lots of ceiling fans, moveable fans, and doors to keep the air moving. The pool is private and was very refreshing. The bedroom upstairs is air conditioned and cools off very well!

We would definitely recommend coming here for vacation. We will really look forward to coming back. I would like to give it 4.5 stars but the website wont allow it!

Owner's Response: Hi Mike, Thanks for your review of TradeWinds. We were so pleased to welcome you and your group to the villa earlier this month and even happier to learn that you enjoyed yourself so thoroughly. Our staff works together to ensure a smooth process from the first reservation inquiry through the final checkout and I'm glad that this was the same for your experience. Celia, Mariana and Eduardo were pleased to assist you during your stay and we'll be sure to let them know of your kind feedback. Manuel Antonio is truly a gem of the Pacific and a nature lovers enthusiast. It's a perfect blend of daytime adventures, long beach days in the shade and international cuisine. We would love to have you back and would be honored to offer you a returning discount on your future accommodation. A sincere thank you, from our team to yours.
