The house can fit 9 people. It features a double bed in the main room, a double bed and single bed in the second room and two bunk beds in the third room.
This house boasts a great location with excellent views. One kilometer (0,6 Miles) from the main road the house is surrounded by exotic nature and wonderful views! Take a short drive to world famous Manuel Antonio National Park or stay at home and catch a tan by the swimming pool. The monkeys might come to visit you any way. You can enjoy nature at its best just from our balcony.
The location of this house is probably the feature that most people love about it. Because it is really close to the beach (five minutes drive, 12 minutes run, 20 minutes walk) but still is quiet and since it is off the main street it is very peaceful! Most people don’t even feel like leaving the place. Check out the views from the windows and from the pool.

Interaction with Guests
Not at all. We have a caretaker that will open the gate for you and will give you keys, towels and anything else you might need, but then he will disappear for the rest of the week. He will come out only to clean the pool.
Villa Amanecer/The house is located over a hill and it is surrounded by forests and other houses gardens. The closest house is located about 300 yards away, so neighbors are not a problem. The pool is located on the back of the house and it is wonderfully private and secluded. The house is quiet but also close enough to the main street. Less than a mile away is the main street, full of restaurants, stores, bars and entertainments.
Plenty of buses and taxis transit thru the main street of Manuel Antonio, located just 1/2 a mile from the house. This street will take you to all kind of restaurants and stores. Also it is the main street to Manuel Antonio National Park.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The listing was as advertised. The caretaker Eladio is fab - although he speaks no English and we speak no Spanish we got along well. He checked on us daily and always with great enthusiasm! The house was huge for four of us but a great place to chill and enjoy the amazing scenery. The pool was fantastic and checked often by Eladio It was clean and well equipped. The location was quiet and peaceful but an easy drive into Manuel Antonio itself.
Beautiful home and view and great communication. Easy to find and amazing house. Loved seeing the monkeys in the morning as well as two Striped Ctenosaurs!
We arrived in Manuel Antonio on our last three days in Costa Rica. The house is easily accessed and has a great view. The caretaker did not speak any English and we had to use hand gestures to communicate, but he was nice and we managed to figure out the a/c and locks (lots of locked doors). The downside was that the beds were uncomfortably hard and only a sheet was provided for cover. We also found a scorpion in the house but I understand that we were in the jungle. Upside was the ice maker.
Nos sentimos muy a gusto, los espacios de la casa realmente son amplios, excelente iluminación natural y el estar entre tanta naturaleza, crea un clima muy sabroso, casi no es necesario encender el aire acondicionado. Las publicaciones coinciden plenamente con lo que nos encontramos y esperamos regresar pronto.
The house alone was very beautiful and the views from the back pool and balcony were even more beautiful.
Our caretaker, Eladio, arrived in a timely manner and our host was accommodating to let us check in a little early. Eladio was very attentive to the property and our needs, locking up after us, sneaking in to clean and make our beds when he saw we were gone, and even caring for the pool in the middle of a storm!
-AC throughout the house was a lifesaver.
-The wifi was very strong, reaching just about everywhere
-The ice machine was great to have
-Te porch came alive with small animals the one night it rained. We saw the biggest moth ever, a giant praying mantis, and a small boa which we later found out was a rare sight.
-Geckos are everywhere and will sound like birds right outside the windows.
-The starfruit tree was in the backyard but the mango tree didn't have anything for us.
-We didn't get to see any monkeys but there were a ton at the National Forest which was only about a 10 minute drive away (don't get suckered into the guys standing in the street trying to get you to park; there's free parking at the end of the road!)
-We grilled out one night by the pool; get some charcoal and lighter fluid!
This house was a dream- the view, pool and big open plan kitchen made it a wonderful place to hang out. Easy/roomy parking and quick access by car to the restaurants of MA. The view in the pics is exactly what you see from the balcony and kitchen/living room, pretty amazing. The only consideration is that the bedrooms and bathrooms are very basic. The AC worked well.
Alejandra is a fantastic host as is her live-in house keeper (whose name escapes me) Welcoming, friendly and helpful!
The house is simply stunning. The views are to die for and the pool surrounded by lush tropical garden with iguanas, lizards, birds etc makes it a perfect way to relax and unwind. The air con is a definite god send and there are plenty of appliances to make coffee, meals but my favourite - the ice machine. Life (drink) Saver in the intense heat! Careful on the floors after the pool or shower - they get super slippery!
