About this listing
Brooks Hacienda has accommodated guests for the past 7 years and has wonderful reviews. What guests like most, is the private, quiet, jungle view of the home, located only 5 mins from great restaurants and 8 mins from the beach and National Park.
Brooks Hacienda is located on the doorstep of Manuel Antonio National Park, one of Costa Rica's most prized national parks and the only park that has beach access. It is common to be visited by 3 types of monkeys daily. That is your view. You can listen to the waves pounding the beach. The ocean is about a 10 minute drive to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.
There are many covered decks overlook the swimming pool which is a main feature of this property. From this area one can enjoy the reflection in the skies of the beautiful Costa Rican sunsets and view wildlife in the trees of the tropical rain forest.
The top part of the house is your space.(the owners live below in a private suite from Nov to April) The home was built in Nov 2008, so everything is still like new. The 2 bedrooms are a very good size and each one has its own private full bath. Each bedroom has a queen bed and one bedroom has a single bed by the window... which is full size single bed with 6 ' high density foam... very comfortable.
The kitchen is state of the art and equipped for you to prepare dinner using the local fresh produce and meats. You can enjoy your meal in the elegant dining area inside or on the deck outside.
Guests accommodations are the top half of the home. The lower suite is occupied by the owners from Nov to April. In 2016, from April 27/26 to Jan 2/17, you can also add the lower suite to accommodate 8 people for a extra $125 USD per night. This suite if fully contained, and not suitable for children.
Interaction with Guests
We are on hand from Nov to April, to assist our guests with information, tours, assistance in places to shop, restaurants to dine, sunset spots etc. When we are not here, our manager will be available for the same information.
We have the best neighbours anyone could wish for. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. The homes are kept in excellent condition and the gardens are all well kept. You can enjoy Brooks Hacienda located at the end of a dead end road, boasting quietness, privacy and off the beaten path but only 5 mins from some of the best restaurants in Costa Rica. And.. only a 8 min drive to the beach and entrance to Manual Antonio National Park.
We encourage guests to rent a car, but many don't and use the taxi service. It is efficient and inexpensive. However the luxury of having your own vehicle is you can explore some of the back roads and smaller towns and beaches, 1/2 hour or 1 hour away. We offer information about transport from SJO to Brooks Hacienda and find most guests love our private driver, who will pick you up from the airport any time of day or night, (and return you) for $170 one way for up to 6 persons.

My husband, Randy and I are organic pear farmers in the Okanagan Valley of British Colmubia. We spend the winters in Costa Rica. We chose Costa Rica as our winter home for many reasons. It is a beautiful country with a wonderful climate, beautiful vegetation, wild animals, friendly people and awesome fresh fruits and veggies. The adventurers offered in our area of Manuel Antonio suit all different types of travellers needs. We have been in the Vacation Rental business in Canada since 1987, but with a very short rental summer season, we decided to move it to Costa Rica. We feel we have made a excellent choice and have the best of both worlds. We would love you to come and join us for a week, or 2 or 3.
