This house has 4 Master Bedrooms - each with its own bathroom and one additional bedroom with a king-size bed and the bathroom just outside.
The downstairs living room (which has two twin beds and futon and serves as the 6th bedroom) shares a bathroom with the 5th bedroom. There are 2 additional half bathrooms and an outdoor shower.
This open air style house is situated to where it is surrounded by over an acre of tropical gardens and peaceful forest. There are spectacular views of the Talamanca Coastal Range and 6000 foot Mount San Geranimo. There are daily sightings of exotic Costa Rican animals such as Blue Morpho Butterflies, Sloths, Monkeys, Jewel-toned Hummingbirds, and now Scarlet Macaws!! The 5-Star Gaia Boutique Hotel (only 200 meters away as the crow flies) began a program to reintroduce Native Scarlet Macaws to the Manuel Antonio area about 1 year ago. And the lucky guests of the Casa Mariposa are right in the flight path of these gorgeous, amazing birds!!! The are sightings virtually everyday!!
This gorgeous home has multiple Master Suites for multiple families traveling together! This is a 5/6 bedroom/5 bath/2 half bath, home which has a second living room which can be converted into a 6th bedroom.
WE ALSO HAVE AN OUTDOOR GRILL FOR BBQ BY THE POOL!!
There are covered terraces surrounding most of the upper level and the bedrooms at pool level. The house can be opened up completely to these terraces allowing for a tropical out of doors living experience. Monkeys pass by in the trees outside our bedrooms most days and an occasional sloth has crawled across our property. Come and hang-out by the pool - we have huge decks, both for sunbathing and plenty of space in the shade - and the pool is huge and was planned for children of all ages with three separate depths: 30 centimeters for toddlers and small children, 120 centimeters for moms and dads to walk smaller non-swimming children around and then a full 2 meters where the slide empties into the pool! There is also an outdoor shower right next to the pool to wash off children before bed without having to convince them to take a shower inside the house!!!
The hillside pool is situated beneath towering jungle trees where White-faced or Titi Monkeys are often swinging through the branches. There is fantastic bird, butterfly, and iguana watching right from our decks. There is 24 hour security in this gated, secure community. The house is very private and quiet, unlike so many rental houses and hotels crammed along the busy main road and with giant walls as your next door neighbor. You can walk to the main road in three-to-five minutes where there are buses and taxis to take you to Quepos or the gorgeous beaches of Manuel Antonio. Within a 10 minute walk are the restaurants: La Gondola, El Arado, and La Luna at Hotel Gaia! By car you are only five minutes from the National Park and some of the worlds most beautiful beaches or equal distant from the entertaining town of Quepos. There are generous parking and storage areas.
For your pleasure and comfort, the Casa Mariposa offers the following amenities: WIFI, Phone, air conditioning in all the bedrooms PLUS in the living room (most houses, even the most luxurious here in Manuel Antonio do NOT offer AC in the living room - ask for yourself and you will see!!) , and there are three flat screen TVs and a DVD player. We have a well outfitted full kitchen. The washer and dryer and currently next to the kitchen.
Outdoors we have a teak wood jungle gym for kids, BBQ grill, and fantastic pool complete with its own water slide. After an exciting day in the tropics, the pool and terrace make for a relaxing evening.
We offer housekeeping everyday EXCEPT Sundays! Babysitting services can be arranged by the concierge.
