Overview

About the property

Spacious 3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8, Home, Stunning Infinity Pool

Welcome to Casa oso de los perezoso (translated as 'the house of the bear sloth'). Bear Sloths are a common sight in the Manuel Antonio area and in particular in the National Park located there. They seem to take life easy and are very laid back; something we love about the lifestyle and the people of Costa Rica and something that we hope you are able to achieve while here in Costa Rica.

Oso de los Perezoso is very private and secure, sitting behind a beautiful large handcrafted wooden gate created by a local woodworker from native wood, and a privacy wall. Located on a 2 acre lot within Finca Se Ve Bien (Looking Good Farm), the Finca comprises 100 hectares with approximately 15 residences located within the Finca. Most of the remaining land area has been left as jungle and forest. Oso de los Perezoso sits atop a hill above the valley and offers spectacular unobstructed views of the mountains to the north and east and the valley below and the Pacific ocean to the west. Facing west, you will truly enjoy the beautiful sunsets each night from the outdoor patio area.

Our Casa is just over 2000 square feet of indoor living. All of this on one level. And our Case is now handicap accessible and disability friendly - a rarity in the Manuel Antonio/Quepos area!

There are 3 very generously sized, fully furnished bedrooms, designed with two separated bedroom wings to provide privacy for our guests. The master suite is located in one wing of the house with the other two bedrooms in the opposite wing. Joining the two wings is a large open concept common area that contains the comfortably furnished living and dining rooms, a sitting area and a fully equipped kitchen fit for a gourmet cook. A bar height counter made from a large single piece of native wood with bar stools, handcrafted by a local woodworker, overlooks the kitchen area enabling you and your guests to socialize while the meal is being prepared. All rooms have spectacular views of the mountains, the valley or the ocean as well as the incredible outdoor living area and infinity pool.

Each bedroom room and the common living area have their own individual air conditioner, however you will find no need for them during the day when the large patio doors of the living area and the bedrooms are opened, letting the late morning and afternoon breezes flow through the house. Each room in our Casa has ceiling fans to assist in air movement and even the elevated outdoor patio areas have fans.

While you will find the interior spacious and very comfortable the outdoor living area is spectacular.

Anchored by a one of a kind infinity edged pool, there is approximately 2000 square feet of additional space. You will thoroughly enjoy the combination of the covered, elevated patio area shading you from the sun or rain and a luxurious lower patio area of limestone (that never gets hot in the brilliant and powerful sun of Costa Rica) that surrounds the infinity edged pool. The lower level is accessed by a wide and gently declining staircase. The outdoor area is fully equipped with a large SunSail for shade, sun umbrellas, chaises and tables and chairs for your enjoyment as well as a new propane BBQ. The pool is constructed with beautiful, non slip, quartz tiling with gentle and wide steps to your submersed sitting bench and a one meter deep pool area that is great to lounge in or is great for the kids. The lap area of the pool is a consistent 8 feet deep and is great to swim in or do laps. You will enjoy a cooling shower after a day out and about under the newly installed stainless steel outdoor shower adjacent to the pool.

We have recently installed permanent cement ramps and a few portable ramps for wheelchairs and disabled persons that allows easy access to and from the Casa and the outdoor areas including those areas by the pool. We believe the access that these ramps provide truly makes our Casa a rare find in Costa Rica.

Dina, our property manager is conveniently located next door to our Casa. She is fluent in both English and Spanish. A native Costa Rican, she is very familiar with the Manuel Antonio and Quepos areas. She is also experienced in the hospitality and real estate industry.

She will communicate with you well before you arrive to assist with any requests or questions you may have. Dina will meet you on arrival and assist you in settling in and learning the fantastic features of our Casa.

She is available to assist you, both before you arrive and when you are at our Casa with your travel plans and activities. She will be able to provide you with a wide range of information on the numerous activities in the area, make your reservations for you and ensure that they are trouble- free. She knows about all the restaurants and bars and is up to date on the best of the tour companies and what they have to offer and the costs. She will make sure your stay is a worry free and a memorable one. We encourage you to take advantage of Dina's knowledge and contacts.

Fabulous time in Quepos, Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Clyde and Scott’s beautiful Casa in late December/early January, 2017/2018.

This is the first time any of the four of us has been to Costa Rica and the experience and accommodations we found to be first rate. We did not lack for anything. Their home is gorgeous, spacious and private with a spectacular view in every direction that one viewed. We loved our daily visitors of two toucans in the tree by the infinity pool.

When we wanted to do any activity, we had the wonderful assistance of Dina, the property manager/neighbour, who was just wonderful. We couldn’t have done it without her! We saw many awesome places. If one does not wish to sight-see you can just simply relax by the poolside. Even if it does rain, the overhang all around the casa protects one so you can continue to enjoy the outdoors.

In the evenings we sat outdoors where the lighting is warm and splendid to view. What a peaceful and tropical setting that made for a wonderful holiday. We will definitely return to the casa!

Wonderful stay with family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Scott and Clyde's casa while we were in Costa Rica Dec 2017.

This was our third trip to the area and 4 years since our last trip there and I would have to say that the tourism industry has grown! Also we were there at Christmas time this year and that makes a HUGE difference in the number of people that are around.

The house itself is wonderful and has all the amenities that you could want. From hair dryers to drink blenders to a hot milk foamer- truly everything you need!

There were a couple of things that i would recommend too enhance your trip experience.

1. Make sure you take an unlocked phone and get a sim card at the airport and a plan. We were there for 2.5 weeks so I took the $17.00 plan for 30 days and 3 gigs of data. So glad we did this as we had internet issues one day and wifi was non-existent and our 5 adult children whom were with us needed to be connected during that time!

2. Download WAZE- the road app for Costa Rica. This is a MUST if you are going to do any traveling extensively in the country and in particular if you are doing anything in cities. Signage has improved immensely since 4 years ago but WAZE was a lifesaver!

3. UNLESS you have to pick up your vehicle in San Jose i would highly recommend flying with Sansa to quespos and then renting your car from Adobe there. SO much less stressful and who needs a three hour nail biting drive after a long flight.

4. We did a number of tours. Hightlights were the Whitewater rafting with Pro Rafting and the Waterfalls at Nauyaca are cheap and well worth the time. You can walk up and back which is a 4 KM hike each way or you can rent a horse. Waterfalls are wonderful.

5. Spend a day and head to Dominical. It is about a 30 minute drive but the driving is easy and the trip is worth it. IF you have lawnchairs and an umbrella take them as it is worth it. Way less people than the beaches at Manuel Antonio. IF surfing is your thing you can get a lesson and board in Dominical for $50.00. Waves are bigger there too. Check out Phat Noodle and Mongo Congo for food.

6. The new Marina is wonderful and a great spot for wifi and a beer on those days when the internet might be out!

7. Don't freak out if the geckos and iguanas are around the house/pool. They are harmless- leave them alone and they will leave you alone!

8. Dina is a godsend for figuring out details...listen to her recommendations!

Thanks for a great family holiday!

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect base for what was probably the best vacation we have enjoyed for a while. Our group consisted of two couples and the home was just perfect for us. Everything you might need -- linens, everything for the kitchen and dining whether indoors or outdoors, beach and pool toys, and of course very comfortable, yet elegant appointments throughout! the view from the rear of the home and the infinity pool is spectacular and the area is so peaceful and serene with colorful birds (even a toucan) and butterflies flitting about. Truly a week in paradise! I could not think of a thing I wished we had during our stay that was not available to us. Clyde and Scott even provide a local cell phone for your use while in the area. prior to our stay I was provided useful information and also put in touch with their property manager/neighbor Dina. Dina is an absolute gem. I gave her a list of things we were interested in doing while there and she made all the arrangements for us including airport transfers and putting us in touch with a rental car agency that delivered the vehicle to the house for us. I definitely recommend Nara Horseback riding and Pro Tours for rafting! I would love to return to Costa Rica and this lovely home some day . . . soon!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Deborah for the kind review! We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time in Costa Rica and that our home was a good "base camp" for all of your adventures. Dina always has the best tips on things to do and places to go - we still ask her for her recommendations when we are there too. Hope you find your way back to the area soon. Pure Vida!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I brought our three kids to stay at this amazing house. Casa Perezoso is stunning--beautifully decorated, well-stocked, with gorgeous views from the pool, deck and house. Dina arranged many fantastic adventures for us and took care of us the entire time. I've never been so sad to leave a rental property in my life. We can't wait to return!

Extraordinary property in a great location. Amazing views. Very Private.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we feel fortunate to have experienced this stunning property.

First of all, it's clearly a HOME not a rental. The owners have decorated and outfitted the rooms and kitchen with everything one could possibly need. Immaculately clean and beautifully landscaped.

If you want that "once in a lifetime" vacation and the memories to match (without breaking the bank) you should seriously consider planning a stay at Casa oso de los perezoso. You will be happy with the decision. The cherry on top of a most wonderful Costa Rica experience.

We will be back!

About Clyde Bond

Clyde and Scott have been together for 17 years. Both professionals, they were raised in Manitoba, Canada and now live in Southern Ontario.

Clyde Bond purchased this house in 2013

Why Clyde Bond chose Quepos

Casa Oso de los Perezoso is our home; a dream realized after a number of years of contemplating purchasing a home in Costa Rica to enjoy as our vacation home and as our residence on a semi full time basis in the future.

We decided 4 years ago that we wanted to make Costa Rica a part of our life permanently and this house is the realization of that dream. We have been to Costa Rica many times and while we have vacationed in other areas, we have always gravitated back to Manuel Antonio/ Quepos for the lifestyle it provides. Great restaurants, friendly people, safe drinking water, amazing beaches, our list could go on for ever. When we saw this property - we knew it was the one. Who couldn't fall in love with that pool?! The other requirement we wanted was a house all on one level, so that we could host any guest, regardless of their mobility needs. Most homes in this area have many steps that you have to navigate for the views. We thought that this house provided us the ocean views we wanted, the amenities we wanted to share with our family and friends and a great place to unwind for a few days or a few weeks.

We offer it to you for your use and enjoyment as your home while you stay with us. We truly hope that you will come to appreciate the beauty and vitality of the country of Costa Rica and it's people as we do.

A special THANK YOU to one of our guests Emil O. Florea - a professional photographer from Montreal, Canada who took some of the photos for the site - he captured the energy of the house perfectly! If you would like to see more of Emil's work, read Emil's review for his contact information or let us know and we can put you in contact with him.

What makes this house unique

The amazing view from the common living areas out over the pool and beyond to the ocean - it is simply breathtaking. As soon as you arrive, you simply want to unwind and relax with your favorite libation, a good book at poolside or a refreshing dip in the pool.

Scott loves to cook so the kitchen is fully set up, from gas cooktop to wall oven with all the necessary tools to make fantastic snacks and meals and a new dishwasher to make clean up a breeze.

Don't want to cook inside and miss the views, BBQ on the patio overlooking the pool, the valley and the mountains where there is more than enough space to enjoy your guests as you cook those fantastic meals.

We have recently done renovations to add wheelchair and disability ramps to all outside areas of the Casa to provide easy access to and from the Casa and to the outdoor areas including the pool. They are either permanent cement or wooden removable and have been constructed with care to ensure that they provide safe and easy movement. We constructed them specifically for a friend's daughter who uses a wheelchair. We are quite proud to now say our Casa is truly wheelchair and disability friendly, a rarity in Costa Rica.
