Located in a Monkey Corridor and new to the Vacation Rental Market, there is no need to venture outside of your Luxury Setting to encounter Beautiful Nature & Unbelievable Wildlife.

If you are looking for a tropical retreat full of exotic wildlife but still want to remain in the comfort and modernity of a luxury villa rental, then come and see this luxury villa located just moments from Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica. You will find many species of birds such as toucans, parrots, falcons, scarlet macaws, butterflies, most likely all 3 species of monkeys in the area, and maybe even 2-toed or 3-toed sloths, a plethora of reptiles, and so much more right in your very own backyard, the jungle! The views from here are extraordinary, as you peer into the lush jungle. You can even see the beautiful mountain range in the distance adding interest to the already intriguing rain forest view.

With enormous windows on all 3 floors of this luxury villa, there is a never ending view of exotic plant life and wildlife to appreciate. From the balcony you and your vacation crew are bound to sight a wide variety of animals, maybe even more than in the national park! The swimming pool is the perfect spot to get some sun, read in the shade with a beverage and gather for fun during the day time and the night time. Pool loungers abound, so you can really relax, enjoying your vacation to its fullest potential.

Within the villa, you will find elements of luxury including fine hardwoods and modern amenities. The open floor plan will accommodate the space needed for you and your guests. Events are encouraged, plus children and the elderly will be comfortable here as well.

Amenities in the full kitchen include a blender, coffee maker, dishwasher, oven, stove, toaster, microwave, ice maker, refrigerator, freezer, cooking utensils, dishes, pantry items, and bottled water. We will make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible!

A convenient bath lies off of the kitchen and living area, so does the garage and additional parking; a security system, activities/restaurant guide, maps, and concierge are all included in this villa rental. Take a walk to visit the close by shopping, bars and restaurants, coffee shops, and much more for the vacation of a lifetime in beautiful Costa Rica.

Perfect for a multi-generational family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house certainly did not fail to impress. From the moment we walked though the doors and met our Concierge Mefi and our chef Ivan with the 180 degree view of the Costa Rican jungle behind them, we knew it was going to be a great week.

The house was exactly as described and shown in the photos and it was kept very clean throughout the week thanks to the daily cleaning service. The best part was the large downstairs room which was great for our 3 teenage sons.

The care and attention provided to use by Mefi was incredible and he was always available to answer any questions and to assist us with our activities, both before and during the trip. Some of our favourite activities were the zip-lining (and don't forget to try the Superman), the waterfall tour (very long day with lots of driving), and the catamaran tour at sunset (we saw lots of dolphins). Spending a day at the beach was also great fun and the kids tried surfing thanks to the experts at Mary's Rentals.

The week would not have been the same without Chef Ivan as he made the week so easy for us. He made us several breakfasts and dinners, and in addition to doing all of the shopping, he cleaned-up afterwards. This meant we had lots of extra time to sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle while enjoying a drink with the family on the deck. His meals are big but so tasty!! If you are looking for a lunch place, try Lambretta's pizza which offers superb views over Manuel Antonio - my boys snuck back for an extra lunch there!!

We did see some of the anticipated animals, such as the toucans and birds, but not as many as we had anticipated so if you expect to see animals, I would highly encourage going on some of the activities.

The trip ended with the sighting of a group of the smaller monkeys playing around in the trees over the driveway. This was a perfect ending to a fabulous trip. We hope to be back!!

Owner's Response: Hola Amber, We are pleased to hear that you and your group had a wonderful stay at our popular Casa Luz and that our Concierge Mefi, Chef Ivan and our very hard working maid Ismali took great care of you so that you could relax and take in many memories. The Villa tends to receive tons of wildlife throughout the year but since March is our warmest month and not a fruit bearing month, the monkeys tend to stay at higher elevations but it was great to stop and say goodbye on your last day. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again, Safe travels home, Don Owner, CR Vacation Properties

Luxury with a jungle backyard!

  • 5 of 5

Right after our arrival and meeting up with Mefi our personal concierge and vacation coordinator, a family of 10 white face monkeys came over by the pool to welcome us :) what an unforgettable experience.

We loved the house, hanging out by the pool with a jungle backyard is priceless. We were very excited about this trip and god knows how much we enjoyed it. Only 1 day of rain which actually we really enjoyed just hanging out at the villa. There are so many windows at the villa that you don't really need lights (until is really dark of course) we loved the details and the gardens were well maintain. Mefi is also amazing and we took every piece of advise he shared with us. Please trust him, he knows the area and the best tours in town, believe me :)

What a Backyard, full of Monkeys :) - The perfect house for a family

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were inside the National Park, we spotted so many monkeys and birds just by looking at our backyard (the jungle :)) Mefi our personal concierge did an amazing job and he took care of every detail. The A/C and WIFI worked great on every room and living room. Is a great house at a very affordable price. Perfect for families with kids who love animals. We'd love to be back very soon here in Manuel Antonio. We did rafting and zip-lines and we enjoyed every single second of it, Mefi knows the best tours and activities in town so you will be in great hands.

Beautiful home in the heart of the jungle.

  • 5 of 5

Just can't say enough about this place. We saw more wildlife on our back deck than on any tour, hike, or beach adventure. Sipping a margarita and watching a momma and baby sloth hang and eat was amazing. Lots of monkeys and huge iguanas also live in the trees. The pool was a lovely way to keep cool on hotter days when we didn't feel like going to the beach.

The whole team who keeps the house beautiful and comfortable was great. We will be going back to this place every chance we get.
