The Rainforest Estate MA Manuel Antonio, Quepos
While the saying goes, “you have to see it, to believe it” this unique tropical home has a FEELING which is almost impossible to capture even with the amazing images you can review of this incredible estate.
This 4 bedroom luxury residence is defined by the oversized spaces that flow through the homes and terraces. From the moment you enter the paver stone driveway and walk through the enormous, tropical, front door, you are greeted with a sense of space, depth and grandeur which few homes in this area can offer as a premium grows on every inch of the Manuel antonio area. The main living area has high cathedral ceilings and a massive open air floor plan which hosts the cooks kitchen, dining and living spaces.
The kitchen is enormous and is idea for entertaining with stainless steel appliances and expansive counters all around. The living and dining areas flow seamless to both the front terraces, all complete with lounge seating from which you can marvel at all the wildlife, and the HUGE back terrace and pool.
The free form pool, one of the largest of any home in the area, is finished with imported stone and is a breathtaking backdrop for all of the common areas of the home. Whether you are cooking in the main kitchen or grilling in the poolside gazeebo, from the moment you lay eyes on the main common areas, you can’t help but want to take off your shoes and stay a while.
There is a master suite on the ground floor, which is an enormous room, accented with soffit ceilings finished in tropical cana brava, hard wood floors and a luxurious master bathroom complete with private tub and outdoor showering looking out into the rainforest canopy. Upstairs, there are two additional spacious bedrooms, each with private on suite bathrooms, a laundry room and a spacious “bonus” area which can be used as a second living space or has retractable glass doors allow it to be used as a 4th bedroom in the main house. On the level below the kitchen and living there is a fully equipped owners studio that the current owners presently reside in. This could be used in the same fashion or easily integrated into the rental areas and even divided to create two full bedrooms as the space is sizeable. This “owners” apartment, has a fully equipped kitchen, pantry, full stone bathroom, living area and king size bed, with a private terrace just below canopy level and access either from the pool deck or directly from the carport.
The home is a DREAM for a luxury rental property or personal residence in the heart of Manuel Antonio. There are thousands of images of wildlife visiting the home with guests being treated daily with scarlet macaws, tucans, sloths, capuchin monkeys, titi monkeys and more birds and butterflies than most can identify in a lifetime. Truly a magical rainforest estate at a great value.
