This property is a work of art (featured in “Su Casa,” Costa Rica’s premier architectural magazine). Hidden from the road, the house is set in over 2 acres of Manuel Antonio's thriving rainforest, and is surrounded by Costa Rica’s spectacular natural beauty. Every feature of the house and property have been impeccably designed, and is of the highest quality. The appeal is modern tropical and features 20-foot glass walls, and an open floor plan. A cascading water feature greets everyone who enters, and runs through the house to the infinity pool and surrounding decks. In the house, aesthetic features include lighting alcoves, vaulted teak ceilings, fully-appointed kitchen, two indoor gardens, over 200 inset lights, a rainwater recycling system, wireless internet, cable and Apple TV, laundry room and an oversized Jacuzzi tub in the spacious master bathroom. Playa La Macha, a private tropical beach surrounded by jungle, is only a 20-minute hike from the house.

The property is serviced by two electric gates and is fully fenced. Adjacent to the main house is a guest house, Casita Romantica, and is only rented along with the main house for large groups. The guest house is never rented to a separate group.

Casita Romantica offers two master suites, each with a queen size bed, en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans and air conditioning. Casita Romantica also has a fully equipped kitchen, third full bathroom, a pull out sofa in the living room (double-bed size), indoor/outdoor dining with a large private deck, and infinity edge swimming pool. Amenities include wireless internet access, 3 flat screen TV’s with cable, Apple TV and sonos sound system

This exquisite and unusual house speaks for itself, and is without a doubt one of the most impressive homes in Manuel Antonio.
