Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Manuel Antonio - Villa CalaLuna

5 Bed, 4 Bathroom, 2 Kitchen Home With Pool And Dramatic Ocean Views

A Home as sensual as its setting - avant-garde minimalist architecture (Metropolitan Home of the Year) in the heart of Manuel Antonio!

Villa CalaLuna

Perched on a steep tropical hill-side above the Pacific Ocean, just minutes north of famous Manuel Antonio National Park, this stunning architectural gem showcases an inspired modern spin on Jungle Geometry: The Villa's spine - 2 immense almond beams - is supported by a double row of massive columns that march through the tri-level 'great room' to a panoramic window-wall, marking the increase in ceiling height from 14 - 24 feet, as the space steps down.

From the entrance porch, strikingly sculptured stairs either levitate to a lofty mezzanine and further up to the master suite and sun-deck above, or widen as they flow down to the kitchen/dining level and the living room below - always inviting to double as seating. The vast floor-to-ceiling glass facade opens to a water-edged living terrace shaded by 3 smartly suspended sails, while high cedar doors attend the side-wing-suite on the right side of the living room level.

CalaLuna was designed to be in tune with its tropical landscape - open to the sea breezes, the scent of ylang ylang trees and the ever-changing light of its rainforest environment. Rooms extend onto expansive balconies, patios and hammock-strung terraces, while the magnificent infinity pool is carved into the hillside and embedded in lush tropical vegetation - shimmering sea views from everywhere.

White walls and sand-colored polished cement floors are offset by playful splashes of color - sun-drenched orange, reds and fuchsia - black granite kitchen counters and richly grained native woods.

A haven completely calm and serene contrasting the abundance of the jungle’s greenery - boldly simple in its furnishings and always sophisticated in its fusion of honest materials and textures - concrete, steel, glass, granite, slate, flagstone and plenty of local hard-woods.

Minimal in decor and yet rich in space, light, ideas and imagination.

Kitchens:

2 full size kitchens and dining areas, one in the great room and another in the side wing suite. A professional VIKING stove, stainless steel BBQ grill on the main kitchen balcony

Pool:

Beautiful and very private jungle setting

Invisible edge design

Very cool underwater color lighting

KIDS:

QUEPOS, 25 min. by air from San Jose or 3 hours by car, a sport-fishing town and the commercial center of the area (shopping / markets / medical center / banks / car rentals / casino, etc.)

MANUEL ANTONIO: 3 Miles south of Quepos, Costa Rica's most exciting tropical coastal region with several off-shore islands and the truly famous MANUEL ANTONIO NATIONAL PARK - world renowned for its beautiful white sand beaches, monkeys, and amazing variety of wildlife and fauna - a true jungle paradise showcasing the area's natural magnificence.

BEACHES, etc: We are overlooking the northern part of Manuel Antonio's main beach, Playa Espadilla, just 1/2 a mile down our coastal road. Continuing south are 3 more white sand beaches within the park area, as well as romantic Playa Biesanz a few miles north. Within walking distance are many restaurants, cafés and shops and a great super market. Convenient access to local bus and other transportation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 6 brought my mom to Costa Rica to satisfy a lifetime dream of hers to visit the area and see the wildlife. We all were absolutely thrilled and amazed at the animals we saw right at CalaLuna! The second day of our stay we had no less than 25 squirrel monkeys on the back porch taking slices of bananas right out of our hands. We saw a baby sloth the very first day and he stayed in the same location outside the master bedroom all week. You will meet Eddie, the huge Spiny Back lizard that lays in the middle of the driveway all day long. Be wary of the capuchins -they look very friendly but when I saw one rip apart a coconut, I immediately gained a new level of respect. Do not worry about the driveway -it is a minor issue compared to the incredible views / wildlife / amenities that CalaLuna offers.

Excellent Villa, Great Staff, Secluded Yet Near Everything in MA

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here with our two sons who are in their twenties. The villa allowed all of us to have our own rooms. Each had its own bath. The villa can accommodate more people. Greg and Pamela, the owners, were easy to work with, responding to questions in person and by phone. Thomas, who manages the villa, and Angie, his assistant were also wonderful, quick to arrange tours and respond if we needed anything.

The villa is gorgeous, secluded yet proximate to beaches, the park and town. We were visited by monkeys most days. The pool is also beautiful. The villa has everything you need - nice kitchen, cable tv, air conditioners in most rooms. We would definitely recommend staying at this villa.

Great views! Cool architecture! Monkeys! Oh my!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time at this home and were happy to celebrate my parents anniversary there. We were greeted at the Quepos Airport by Thomas who led us to the house. He was helpful throughout the week. Angie also was helpful arranging tours for our group. The views are amazing and the grounds are great too. There are monkeys, a nice pool, hammocks for relaxing and a well appointed kitchen. We also had the pleasure of having Paige come in a cook us a meal on Christmas morning. If you go, request her. She made a delicious breakfast for eight of us for $120.

The public beach is a five minute car ride, cab ride or bus trip away. You could walk it too if you don't mind walking up the hill home (would take 20-25 minutes most likely) At the beach, we recommend renting chairs from Mary's Rentals.

While we absolutely LOVED the house, the showers, the views, etc. keep in mind that the driveway is very steep. We recommend getting not just an all-wheel drive car, but a four wheel drive SUV. If you don't mind walking the steep driveway to catch a cab or walk to the heart of Manuel Antonio, then scratch the car all together. It is a steep walk, but that's how we got our exercise when we didn't want to drive. The stairs to the pool were also steep, but not like the driveway.

The owners of this property are so nice. They were easy to contact and always responded to emails throughout the process. Also - Costa Rica is amazing. Go!

My Private Resort!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Spectacular & Exotic !!!!!!
This is how I can describe CalaLuna, My "Private resort" in the middle of the jungle in Manuel Antonio. When I was looking places to spend my birthday, Manuel Antonio was always my first choice< where else you can find jungle and beautiful beaches at the same place<So, my husband took the time to find the right place to celebrate it and then is when we fall in love with CalaLuna. Not only because its amazing and unique modern design, with spectacular Pacific Ocean views, but also because its beautiful sun-deck and great infinity pool. Calaluna is a four story Villa that make you feel you are in paradise!!!! Monkeys welcome you almost as soon as you arrive to the property, manicure gardens, very relaxing hammocks, great breeze and very spacious areas make you feel like in your own "Private Resort". Exactly what do you need after all the adventures you can enjoy while you explore the Area. That's the reason why after we spend a wonderful week for my birthday back in September, I didn't hesitate twice to get back this past October. Once again, CalaLuna, was just the perfect scenario to celebrate: this time my Sister 40th's Birthday.
Thank you, Thomas the property Manager, Katthya, Mr.Jorge and the rest of the Staff for making our stay unforgettable.
Is a pleasure when you meet people that love what they do, and CalaLuna is the perfect example. I'm looking forward to get another getaway to this "little piece of Paradise" in a near future. Pura Vida!!!! Costa Rica.

Tropical Luxury

  • 5 out of 5
We had a terrific time at Villa Calaluna. The property overlooks the bay with stunning views from the many balconies. We made several trips to the pool each day. Although we didn’t see any sloths, we were visited by monkeys, iguanas, a large tree frog, and many geckos. The property was centrally located in Manuel Antonio with easy access to several beaches, the national park, and a variety of restaurants. We initially planned to walk to the beach, but it’s a good 20-30 minute walk from the house. The drive was quick and simple.

The property manager, Thomas, was very friendly and did a nice job showing us around the house. He also provided us with some useful tips to navigate the area. Be sure to ask him about parking near the beaches! Thomas’ assistant, Hazel, helped us to book a surf lesson, which we highly recommend.

Traveler considerations:
The property is air conditioned only in the bedrooms/suites. The main house is cooled by fans and by the sea breeze. When we visited, the temperatures were between 95 - 104 degrees F so we were missing the AC. The driveway is very steep and fairly long, so be sure to plan accordingly when walking out to the main road. We only visited with our family of 5 and we were challenged to use much of the space. This is a home that is better suited for large groups and/or multiple families.
