The Villa Mariana Vacation Rental

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 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 walk from the house.

The property is serviced by two electric gates, a guard house and is fully fenced. Adjacent to the main house is a guest or caretaker's house on an independently titled property included in the sale. Both pieces of titled property have their own city electricity and water. The house has been rented as either a four or five bedroom, including the guest house.

Adjacent to The Villa Mariana is Casita Romantica which 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 private deck, and infinity edge swimming pool. Amenities include wireless internet access, 3 flat screen TV’s with cable and sound system

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

The Villa Mariana Reviews

Posted by in September 2017

Costa Rica was amazing – even better than remembered. All arrangements worked out perfectly, and we had fun, adventure, relaxation and more.

We strongly recommend the Villa Experience! It was super. The decision to go with the chef was also a good one – Chef Over is truly a chef, we ate really well (his meals were better than those at the fancy restaurants we went to). We saw sloths, giant iguanas, 3 kinds of monkeys, lots of different birds, all from the deck of “our” villa! The “nearby” beach (40-minute hike) was the most secluded beautiful beach I have ever been to.

We had a wonderful time at Casa Romantica in Manuel Antonio. It was all we hoped it would be and more! Everything was perfect from the Concierge to the Chef to the Housekeeper to the home owner. Everyone was accommodating and hospitable. The house is beautiful and comfortable!
