The space

Bosque en el Cielo at Manu Villas is luxury in the rain forest. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation in a beautiful home surrounded by an unspoiled tropical rain forest, this is for you!

The home is on a secluded mountainside, yet it is a quick drive to Dominical, where there are many restaurants and shops. It is also easy to get to Manuel Antonio National Park (to the north) and Marino Ballena National Park/Uvita (to the south).

The home features 3 beautifully detailed bedrooms and 3 full baths, and sleeps 6-8 people comfortably. The master bedroom occupies the entire upstairs with 360-degree views of both ocean and rain forest. The first floor consists of 2 bedrooms (each with its own full bathroom and terrace) and a large open living space that spills out onto a 3,200 sq. ft. wrap-around terrace with a chlorine free infinity edge swimming pool.

The villa sits atop the private 30-acre Manu rain forest reserve overlooking the Pacific Ocean to the west and primary forest to the east. It is surrounded by unspoiled nature and gardens and is only minutes away from the beautiful and unspoiled Guapil beach.

Indigenous wildlife on the property include white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots, hummingbirds, white eagles, falcons, wild turkeys, and much more.

The house and our overall trip was just absolutely amazing! The house was a bit secluded but it was sooo worth it! Breathtaking views, a delicious pool and lots of extra space. The rooms were super comfortable and the bathrooms were huge. The house was fully equipped with evertything you could possibly need. When you go, do make sure to take insect repellent and stock up on food and drinks. A strong 4x4 vehicle is definitely necessary. Everything really exceded our expectations! Thanks for everything!

We stayed 4 nights in Lynne's house and everything was perfect! Before our trip Lynne was very helpful with the planning and gave us usefull advices. The house is very spacious - it was 6 of us - 3 couples - and each had its privacy with a large bedroom and own bathroom. Some of us who were brave enough to wake up at 5:30 in the morning actually saw monkeys in the garden trees. The house is close to many attractions and perfect beaches.

This was one of the most luxurious and peaceful properties I've ever stayed in. The home was amazing for our family of five as well as our two Costa Rican friends who stayed with us, and we hope to return soon. It was quite an experience to be surrounded by the unique flora and fauna that Costa Rica has to offer. Lynne was very responsive and communicative beginning with my initial contact with her. She was extremely well organized and provided a comprehensive guide to her property and the surrounding area that provided all the information we needed.

The house and its surroundings were extraordinary! It was very comfortable, easy to find, and secure. My children especially loved the infinity pool! Lynne was very responsive and eager to make sure the process went smoothly. We are now seriously considering buying a house in the area!!
