Casa de las Cascadas is a gorgeous 3-bedroom modern home, with 1-bedroom 'apartment', located in a gated community in central Manuel Antonio. There are both ocean and mountain views, and lots of wildlife in the area.
The main home is designed for indoor/outdoor living; the upper 2 bedrooms access the living area/pool via an outdoor, covered breezeway. There is AC in the bedrooms only. No TVs.
Great spaces, great privacy, 2 pools and easy access to both Quepos and Manuel Antonio beach!
Award winning design by renowned Costa Rican architect Andres Morales--a modern tropical home with a working waterfall, 20-foot windows in the living area, and a covered breezeway connecting the upper bedrooms. Located in a gated community in Manuel Antonio, it sits on 2.5 acres of lush gardens. There are exceptional views of the mountains, jungle and ocean, and tons of local wildlife. Just 5 minutes to Quepos and the Pez Vela marina, or 8 minutes to the public beach and national park.
The home is in fact a 3-bedroom home with a studio apartment below the master wing. There are two levels in the main house: 2 bedrooms on the upper level--a master with a king bed, private bath, walk-in closet and wrap-around balcony, and a guest room with a queen bed, private bath and walk-in closet, & 1 bedroom on the lower level with 2 double beds, a private bath, and sitting area with direct access to the waterfall pool. The apartment is accessed via a short garden path from the downstairs foyer, or bedroom. It has a queen bed, kitchenette, sitting area, covered balcony and private bath.
Water flows through center of house and pours over a waterfall into the lower pool. The upper pool has great sunset and mountain views, and there is also a barbecue grill (for Dad!). The sparsely-populated community offers great areas for morning walks--and even a longer hike to a little-known beach. The community is gated with a guard 24/7. There is a covered parking area for 2 cars on the lower level.
It's pertinent to note a couple of things: There is AC in the bedrooms only--not in the living area upstairs. The house was designed for indoor/outdoor living and air flow, but still can get hot during the peak of the dry season (ie Feb-Apr). Also--while there is a phone and wireless internet, there are no TVs at Casa de las Cascadas--but then again, why visit Costa Rica and watch TV??? ;)
Note: The home may be rented out as a 3-bedroom home, in which case the apartment is NOT rented out separately (ie the property is all yours!)
