About this villa

WHERE BETTER TO ISOLATE IN SAFTEY? Take a break from working from your home office by taking a dip in your private pool, a quick trip to the beach or an hour hike around our renowned national park.

With 100 mega WIFI you can even work poolside - just try not to get too distracted by the iguanas, monkeys, butterflies and the oodles of other wildlife surrounding you.

This superb property is very secluded and quiet allowing you peace and freedom to shelter in place under the sun.


We operate special protocols during the pandemic and the villa is closed for 24 hours prior to check in and post check out. All surfaces and equipment - tv remotes etc - are cleaned with organic sanitizer and all floors cleaned with bleach then alcohol. All staff wear masks at all times.


Comprising of 2 remodeled villas set on half an acre of rainforest, there are 3 Master Bedroom Suites, each with it's own private bathroom, 3 large covered patio areas perfect for relaxing and enjoying your monkey visitors, and a wonderfully inviting private pool.

On the main level of the larger villa you will find a well equipped kitchen with a large microwave, coffee maker and blender perfect for whipping up your morning fresh fruit smoothies, a half bath and living room with a lovely large sofa, TV, DVD player and selection of DVD's and games. Up stairs are 2 Master Bedrooms each with a private bathroom, closet, TV and superb covered terrace that overlooks the pool. Each bedroom has flexible sleeping as the beds can be configured as King or 2 twin beds.

In front of the villa is a large covered patio area with a large outdoor dining space, BBQ and rocking chairs. The villas are connected by a beautiful teardrop pool and surrounded by a spacious deck area. Just the place to relax after a hard day working.

The smaller villa is a large bedroom with a Queen and 2 twin beds plus a large bathroom. Although they are situated very close together, around 2 meters apart, the villas are nots connected internally but instead by a garden path and via the pool area. We do not permit children under 16 to stay in this villa without an adult.

The entire property has been refurbished to an excellent standard from the modern custom fitted fully equipped kitchen with granite worktops, hotel grade towels and sheets and hand painted artwork by renowned local artist, Adrian Valli.

Located in the Central Pacific Coast only 2 hours from San Jose International Airport (SJO). It is easy to get here!

It's a beautiful drive and even more relaxing if you take a private shuttle and start your vacation being treated like rock stars! Don't forget to stop to take the tour of the Crocodile Bridge at Tarcoles and remember to stop for lunch at the seaside town of Jacó where you'll find some great bargains and delicious food!

Imagine your own private villa located within the heart of the rain forest next to one of the top 10 rated parks in the world, Manuel Antonio National Park!

At Villa Monos Bailarines (House of the Dancing Monkeys), you are conveniently located within minutes of some of the most beautiful white sand beaches, and access to some of the best activities you can experience in a lifetime.

Safe & exciting white water rafting, zip lining over the jungle canopy, crocodile tours, riding quads across rugged trails, surfing in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean

and great deep sea fishing beyond your wildest expectations! Catch a tuna or mahi mahi and have one of the many world class restaurants cook your catch that night for dinner!

Costa Rica is one of the best family or romantic getaways anywhere. If you are looking for an affordable adventure in a country so safe they don't even have an army(!), then catch the next flight to San Jose International Airport (SJO) and you'll be in your villa in time to watch the dancing monkeys while enjoying open air dining.

Costa Rica: Welcome to the most ecologically sound country on planet Earth.

Come for big adventures and lasting memories!

-We ask guests not to use our laundry services as our Costa Rican machines can be delicate. However, if you do have any personal items that you wish to have washed, please let us know and our maids would be happy to do it for you, free of charge.

    Home away from home!

    We loved our stay! The house was ideal for our family of four. While we did not use the extra villa, it would be ideal for another 2-3 people. We all enjoyed the pool, daily visits from the monkeys, convenience to beach and restaurants. Rudy our concierge was so helpful and the other employees we so friendly and met our needs. Our excursions booked through Rudy were all amazing and our kids had a wonderful experience. Pura vida!

    Great Location

    We had a great trip and everyone was helpful from the very beginning. From helping us book excursions, rental cars, and giving us directions. Then after we arrived Rudy was wonderful. The house is clean and well maintained and very comfortable having 3 bedrooms each with its own bathroom. We were even entertained by a troop of monkeys while having coffee one morning.

    Most Amazing Stay EVER

    Our family of 5 loved every single thing about this beautiful and fun, rental home in Manual Antonio. It was in an amazing location, close to many restaurants, a grocery store, Manual Antonio park, Biesanz Beach (which is gorgeous) and the beaches of Manual Antonio (which are amazing). Our family enjoyed the beautiful home and felt very comfortable and safe. All of the decor and amenities are great and the architecture and grounds of the home are stunning. We enjoyed having our own private pool and patio area alot and the visitors that would come mid morning, the monkeys. They were very entertaining! This home has 2 bedrooms inside the home (which we asked to be arranged differently--with 3 twin beds in one room & then the king in the other). There is also access to more beds in a small detached house near the pool. Due to the age of our children, we chose to have us all under one roof, but did enjoy the hammock and relaxing in that area during the day. The owner Amy, the travel expert who reaches out to you Karen & our concierge Rudy were all very informative and quick to answer any and all questions. They definitely wanted to ensure we had an awesome vacation. We stayed here for 4 nights, but could have stayed weeks! We will always cherish our stay. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with us!
