About this listing
This house is a small 1 bedroom A-frame located in Bungalows Las Palmas, a group of 16 similar houses situated on two and one-half acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, located off the main road which connects Quepos and Manuel Antonio. There is a very nice pool on the grounds.
Although you are far enough away from the main road not to hear it, you are only a three minute walk away from the bus stop on the main road. The local bus costs about 60 cents US and it takes you to the beach and the famous Manuel Antonio National Park, or into the town of Quepos. If you are driving, there is off street parking. We are about 7 minutes from town and about 10 minutes from the beach. In either place you will find shops and restaurants, and there are several good restaurants within walking distance of the house.
We lived in this house for ten years, and we know it very well. Inside, the house is shaded enough to be cool during the day and at night. Ceiling fans in all rooms [except the bathroom], plus tropical breezes that blow through the house, ensure a comfortable stay. At night, you can hear the sounds of the tropical rain forest or, if you are lucky, the tropical rain on the roof. . Sleeping here is an unimaginable pleasure.
The Las Palmas community and our management team focus on the serenity of the place. A lot of our guests study Spanish or go visit the beach, the park, the mangroves, or go out on ocean cruises during the day, and relax by the pool in the afternoon.
If it’s peace and tranquility in a jungle setting that you’re after, this is the place.
no smoking inside the house but the porch is very comfortable. sorry we don't allow pets. Kids are welcime but you should know we think it is a dangerous house for babies or toddlers, because the balconies and the stairs were built with adults in mind..
The house is well located between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. The patio was wonderful and we enjoyed the sight of Monkeys during the morning. A lot of good restaurant are closed to the house and we felt sometimes like in the jungle. Our stay was really beautiful and relaxing.
This is a great bungalow in an awesome little community. I would definitely return. Sitting on the patio my catch phrase became "estoy contento".
About the Host, Letty
We are a couple of local musicians who live in Quepos and we rent out this house, which we lived in for ten years. We really like it. Moved out of the house because hauling music equipment in and out of it is difficult!We are hands-on landlords, there if you need us, not if don't. pura vida.
