Casa Maravilla Estate is a very uniquely designed and extremely popular luxury retreat situated on over an acre of land and the only home in the area constructed entirely out of Almond wood which gives it such a unique look and experience. Several Celebrities, including the President of Sony Motion Picture, President of Lennar Homes (Major homebuilder in the US), and several Actors have selected Casa Maravilla Estate as their home of choice in Manuel Antonio.
With exquisite gardens, 6 private bedrooms/baths, this fully gated Estate provides tremendous comfort for your entire group. All bedrooms are completely air conditioned and out of sight of one another with 4 bedrooms in the Main House and 2 more in the private Casitas. The 800 square foot Rancho/ Barbeque area was designed and built for entertaining in mind. A custom bar with a Plasma TV, dining for 17 and relaxing chairs are all nicely situated to take advantage of the tropical gardens and overlook the very enjoyable waterfall/infinity swimming pool (with bar stools in the pool) and a wading area with water jets for the kids to play in. The 30-foot high hardwood ceilings provide excellent ventilation, and sliding glass doors all the way around, allow you to either open the home completely to the fresh pacific breezes by day and the sounds of the jungle at night, or to close it up and enjoy the experience in fully air conditioned comfort.
Your Private Gourmet Chef Ronald
Casa Maravilla would not be a First Class Estate without providing your own Gourmet Chef to prepare up to 3 meals per day (food and beverage cost are separate). Mom doesn’t need to shop, cook or clean as Chef Ronald, who has been the Chef at Casa Maravilla for 8 years, loves his profession and many groups want to take him home with them after their stay! Ronald does it all and saves you money as well by purchasing the freshest ingredients from local vendors, butchers and fisherman where only Restaurants typically shop. Saturday mornings is the day that Ronald goes to our Farmers market and selects the best vegetables, fruit and high quality produce at a fraction of the cost at the local stores.
The stunning ocean views and spectacular nightly sunsets are sure to take your breath away, while the secluded, and the rarely frequented cove beach of “Playa La Macha” is waiting for you to explore just a nature walk away. Manuel Antonio National Park and its multiple white sand beaches rimmed with pristine rain forest, are the treasured jewel of Costa Rica’s park system and are just 5 minutes away while, Quepos, with its wide variety of shopping, restaurants, bars, Casino, markets, and sport-fishing fleet is less than 5 minutes in the other direction. Casa Maravilla is centrally located to take advantage of both areas.
Three types of friendly monkeys visit the property regularly, as well as the fascinating and slow moving tree sloths (we have had up to 5 at a time), a large variety of birds, and a plethora of other sometimes hard to describe animals, so bring your camera and you’ll be sure to enjoy the best of the jungle and it’s amazing inhabitants from the terraces and gardens of this amazing luxury home.
So relax in your very own Estate Property while the wonderful staff and Chef work their magic so that you can have an extremely memorable vacation of a lifetime.
