Pure Life Properties

Centrally located in the commercial heart of Manuel Antonio
Immerse yourself in the surrounding Costa Rican jungles

Enjoy the Pure Life!

Centrally located in the commercial heart of Manuel Antonio – yet remarkably immersed in the surrounding jungle, Casa Camila, Casa Valentina, Casa Paloma and Casa Barba Roja are your luxurious home away from home. You will not find more conveniently located houses, with this stunning view of the remarkable Pacific Ocean and the calm, green jungle all around. Enjoy the peace, ease and tranquility of these houses, but mostly enjoy the private infinity edge pool at each house. These remodeled homes have all the amenities to make your trip delightful, stress-free, exotic, and comfortable, while hosting a very tropical, open, bright design that will surely erase all winter blues! Jungle, ocean, sunsets, monkeys, butterflies, mapaches, iguanas – and virtually no neighbors!

Multiple properties

Right next door (literally 20 meters away), above a popular local bar, is Casita Margarita, our apartment with a full kitchen and entirely remodeled. Casita Margarita is located on the second above a souvenir shop. We have added thick 10mm glass windows, and additional insulation throughout for a remarkably perfect stay, as well as the same 450 thread-count sheets and King-size memory foam mattresses of our more luxury houses.


Great Location

2 Bedroom Casa Camila

Casa Valentina 1 Bedroom

Casa Paloma

Casa Barba Roja

Deep Relaxation in the Heart of Costa Rica

Casa Barba Roja, for people who like to be on top of things! Walk to everything. The new Gym for locals and tourists alike, 6 international grocers, 1 bank, the public bus stop, 4 bars, 15 restaurants, 4 gift/art stores, butterfly gardens, a zipline, a spa,  and a car rental agency within a 5-minute walking distance of the houses. Any of our well-equipped, comfortable homes will be a memorable part of your stay here in Manuel Antonio!

We would rent this house again!

“This home is well maintained and definitely an excellent fit for multiple families. I think our pre-teens and teens spent more time swimming (between the pool trips to the beach) than they did sleeping. We stayed here after a week of other Costa Rican adventures and lodges and we were not disappointed. The owners and staff have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and fun! Take advantage of Josue’s trip planning and guide services!”

A Vacation Paradise

“Wonderful place newly remodeled. Stunning view of the ocean and wildlife that entertained us daily!! Great location though a long walk to any beach although bus stop is close. We spent a lot of time on the balcony just taking in the view!!”

Great location, awesome pool and view to die for

“Would 100% recommend this to all and would stay again in a heartbeat. We had a resident iguana that we fed fruit to in the back and we were visited by friendly capuchin monkeys daily. The AC kept the place very cool and the home had everything needed for a great trip for 10 people. Josue was great as well – not overbearing but always there when you could benefit from a local guide. Ahhhh Pura Vida!”

What a wonderful place

“What a wonderful place! The hosts were great and exceptionally above and beyond helpful! The space is in a very accessable and walkable area next to cafe milagro which has the best coffee. The amenities are up to date and while central the space itself felt like our own lil secluded hidaway. Romantic and cozy. This is now my go to when I travel here in the future.!”

About the homes

The Scarlet Macaw House is a beautiful, private, quiet home located in the El Salto Estates gated community (a 2 minute drive from the commercial heart of Manuel Antonio and a 5 minute drive to the beaches or the Marina) where you can sit comfortably while watching your children play and have fun in our giant pool or on our awesome jungle gym (pun intended). Bring your friends and family – there is plenty of space here at the Family Jungle House.

This open air style house is situated to where it is surrounded by over an acre of tropical gardens and peaceful forest. There are spectacular views of the Talamanca Coastal Range and 6000 foot Mount San Geranimo. There are daily sightings of exotic Costa Rican animals such as Blue Morpho Butterflies, Sloths, Monkeys, Jewel-toned Hummingbirds, and now Scarlet Macaws!! The 5-Star Gaia Boutique Hotel (only 200 meters away as the crow flies) began a program to reintroduce Native Scarlet Macaws to the Manuel Antonio area about 1 year ago. And the lucky guests of the Family Jungle House are right in the flight path of these gorgeous, amazing birds!!! The are sightings virtually everyday!!

For our guests’ convenience, we have two concierge attending the different homes: Josue Castro, is always available to make this trip exactly what you want whether that is high-energy and full of adrenaline, or calm and relaxing spending a lot of time staring at the view!

Guest Reviews

I was traveling down for the first time to get away from the busy city life in Washington DC.  I fell in love with this place. Great for taking long walks on the beach.  I cooked meals in the kitchen and had some of the best night sleeps. Thanks
