The space

It doesn't get much better than this. A 5,000 sq. ft (recently upgraded!)7 bedroom, 8 bath villa mansion overlooking the town of Quepos and Pacific ocean in the distance. The villa sits on TWO properties and is four levels high! (five if you count the laundry room). It can host up to 16 people comfortably but there's even room for more, the entire villa is ideal for large groups or we offer options to rent different parts of the Villa detached from main house with their own separate entrances (For more pictures and videos visit:

Panoramic views of the ocean and coastline from the two main master bedrooms. A Jacuzzi tub with views of the forest canopy and ocean below. A wall of glass doors opens up completely in both the living room and the kitchen revealing the gorgeous pool framed in artistic stone detail. There's not many places you could stay in Manuel Antonio where you can jump from the living room and land in your private pool! Detailed stone & tile work around and through the house, make for a truly unique space.

The huge balcony has been expanded to make room for more outside activities like barbecuing or entertaining a large number of guests for a moonlight dinner. And when you go inside, you get that rare feeling that you're still outside with the fresh breezes blowing in through the two walls of open doors by the pool and the many open windows throughout the house. You'll also appreciate there's a slight temperature drop even when you're just a couple hundred feet higher up.

Nestled inside a well maintained gated community and home to the Rain Drop Spa, Manuel Antonio Estates sits on the main road to world famous Manuel Antonio national park and its beaches. A true sanctuary when you're home, yet very easy access to everything Quepos and Manuel Antonio has to offer! From zip lining tours, massages, surfing (yes!), fishing, golf, hiking, gym, horseback riding, sight seeing, snorkeling/diving, boating, jet skis, swimming, wildlife viewing, tennis, biking, yoga, shopping, white water rafting and more!

It seems you'll never run out of new foods to experience, from some of our favorite restaurants in Quepos (with healthy options too!) to the long row of restaurants and hotels in Manuel Antonio. Plus if you are taking advantage of our all-inclusive paradise service option which includes your very own gourmet chef and ONSITE massage therapist, you can take your daily experience of Manuel Antonio to a whole new level! And when the day is done you can retire to your castle, sip your favorite drink by the pool and watch the city light up from below.

Whether you just want to give your family or friends an experience of a lifetime or you're looking for an amazing place to stay before you continue on your journey through Costa Rica, you won't want to miss an opportunity to stay at Happy Jacana and if your budget allows, go for the FULL experience with chef and massage therapy, you'll be glad you did!

Costa Rica is often referred to as the gem of central america, and Manuel Antonio, the gem of Costa Rica. The property is uniquely situated at the start of Manuel Antonio , just after Quepos, so you get the best of both worlds. 5 minutes from Quepos airport, a 15 min. drive to Dominical, 45 minutes away from world class waves in Hermosa and the buzz of Jaco Beach. Plus there's many places just a short drive away if you want to actively explore the are awhile you're here.
