Casa Noche del Mono sits within a private nature reserve in the hills above the Pacific Ocean on the southern Nicoya Peninsula. Our unique location ensures complete privacy and tranquility as well as abundant wildlife. Monkeys, agoutis, peccaries, kinkajus, deer, toucans, parrots and much more are all found within the reserve. The property is perfectly situated for exploring the nearby beaches and attractions of the area, including the towns of Manzanillo, Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma.
The house itself is inspired by the Spanish colonial haciendas found throughout Central America and is the perfect blend of luxury and nature. Built around a central courtyard adorned with 5 fountains and tropical plants, the house remains a constant cool temperature. While all portions of the house are finished with the finest details (including granite and marble countertops, private terraces and bathrooms adjoining each bedroom, modern appliances and hand made tiles) the atmosphere is casual and perfectly suited to the natural surroundings. In addition to the 3 bedrooms, the house includes an indoor/outdoor rooftop terrace, a living room, a den with full satellite television, dining room, eat in kitchen and a 60 feet long terrace overlooking the pool, jungle and mountains. The large, blue-tiled infinity pool is perched on a hillside with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and jungle. The pool contains an underwater lounging bench. Deck chairs and lounging cushions are located around the pool area.
The lush gardens surrounding the house and in the central courtyard are planted with flowering plants and tress from around the world, including breadfruit, guava, mango, avocado, heliconia and roses. The grounds are maintained daily by a gardener. The rest of our reserve consists of secondary forest laced with streams. We have ensured that these areas have not been developed or cleared (except for trails) and therefore retain an abundance of plant and animal life.
Full housekeeping and laundry services are provided. To ensure our guests' comfort, we have furnished the house with high quality 800+ thread count bed linens, plush bath sheets and other 'necessities.' In addition, the kitchen is fully equipped with high end cookware and virtually every cooking gadget imaginable.
Our property is centrally located on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula with the beautiful beaches of Playa Manzanillo and Playa Hermosa less than a 10 minute drive away. In addition, the towns and beaches of Montezuma, Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are less than 30 minutes away. Numerous rivers also run through the area. During your stay, we will be happy to arrange horse back riding, spa/massage treatements, golf games, fishing excursions, surfing lessongs, canopy tours or any other activity the area offers.
If your dream vacation is total privacy and tranquility in a stunning natural setting as well as luxurious and centrally located accommodations, please contact us. We will be happy to answer any questions that you might have about Costa Rica, the area or our house.
Frank and Bill put in a great deal of time to make sure all of our needs were met. After a long day of traveling our jaws dropped with amazement when we walked into the door. The house is amazing. It is a bit of a ways from the main beaches (20 min) but it also keeps the dust backpacker/hippy crowd at arms length.
I first started visiting Costa Rica in the early ´90´s and have been living here since 2005. I am passionate about the area, its people and its natural beauty. We have been renting our home to guests from all over the world since 2008. This has proved to be a wonderful experience and we now consider many of our guests, whom we see every year, as good friends. Any questions you have on the house or the area, please feel free to ask. Hope to see you soon.
