Nestled in a true wildlife sanctuary, this contemporary 3 bedroom home offers quiet seclusion within Manuel Antonio Estates-- one of the most accessible and beautiful gated communities in the area. This gem is situated just minutes away from downtown Quepos, the white sand beaches of the Manuel Antonio National Park, and the new world-class Marina Pez Vela. The quality of the building materials and the detailed workmanship is exquisite. Imported Italian tiles, wooden French doors with ornate stained glass panels leading to the master bedroom, a spacious, elegant master bathroom, and the local hardwood finishes are just a few of the incredible features. Because of its location at the end of the cul-de-sac, the house enjoys complete privacy, as well as safety, with 24 hour security. The three comfortable bedrooms can easily accommodate 4 - 6 residents. Why rent two or three hotel rooms, when you can rent an entire, family-friendly house for the price of one hotel room. With a full kitchen and outdoor grill, feel free to take advantage of the local markets, including the farmers market on Saturdays, to prepare your own meals with fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables and freshly caught fish. Or, just outside the estates you will find an abundant variety of restaurants from casual, ethnic, and al fresco, to 4 & 5-star gourmet dining with beautiful ocean views.
Ideal for families who love the surroundings of the lush rain forest and can’t get enough of the pure sounds of the jungle. Step outside and be entertained by visitors such as bright, colorful toucans and macaws, playful monkeys and adorable sloths. Fruit trees and flowers are abundant on the property. Green areas cover a large portion of the estates with 5 km of hiking trails with small creeks and waterfalls. Ask the concierge for convenient swimming locations nearby. Visitors can, also, frequent the Raindrop Spa, a beautifully appointed, Balinese-inspired new day spa with outdoor gardens, offering many types of therapies as well as yoga & Pilates and located right on the Estates' property.
With various modes of transportation easily accessible, you can enjoy a multitude of exciting activities in the area including zip-lining, whale and dolphin watching, boating, para-sailing, deep-sea fishing, bird watching, eco-tourism, tennis, and golf just to name a few. Not only are there tours of the park but many other tours for which pick up from Manuel Antonio Estates can be arranged. Recommended examples are Damas Island and Rainmaker Park.
Here is a quote from Forbes Magazine about Manuel Antonio Park: “Here is a stunning combination of beaches and coral reefs, perfect for snorkeling and exploring the area’s famous tangle of mangroves. Rainforest jungles remain untouched habitats for Brown-throated Three-toed sloths, iguanas, Central American squirrel monkeys and birds of extraordinary colors. One of Costa Rica’s smallest national parks, Manuel Antonio is nevertheless one of its most popular, with activities ranging from white-water rafting and sea kayaking to horseback riding on one of the park’s four beaches.”
From Broadwayworld: “Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, has had its debut, and is now becoming one of the top 'boutique' travel destinations in the world. Forbes called Manuel Antonio National Park one of the '12 Most Beautiful National Parks of the World'.
