Oceanview villa built into the jungle

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5.5 baths
Delight in an exquisite private home tucked into a resort-worthy setting at Casa Manta Ray. Perched on the gorgeous Peninsula Papagayo, which is also home to the exclusive Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica and the Hyatt Andaz, this luxury Costa Rica vacation rental is surrounded by vibrant tropical flora and overlooks the Pacific. Nearby beaches, golf courses and national parks make it easy to discover the region’s natural beauty, while five suite-style bedrooms are a welcome retreat at the end of a busy day of sightseeing.
Your holiday at Casa Manta Ray includes the services of a property manager, housekeeper and security, as well as access to the fitness center, pool and hot tub at the Prieta Beach Club. The villa’s secluded location in a gated community means you’ll hear the birds singing as you start your day with a coffee on the patio sitting area or a yoga session on the pavilion surrounded by a tranquil water feature. Relax with family on the terrace around the infinity pool, and in the evenings, switch on the sound system and heat up the barbecue for a sunset dinner at the alfresco table. Stepping inside, there’s also an indoor wet bar and wine fridge for your favorite vintages.
Natural tones and textures give the villa’s interiors a relaxed vibe that’s in tune with the lush landscape. In the central sitting room, white sofas and chairs are set on natural-fiber rugs around polished wooden accent tables for multiple conversation areas, while contemporary art and pillows in spring green and sea blue add pops of color. Surrounded by sliding glass doors and large windows, the long dining table feels almost like an extension of the terrace, and a breakfast bar and practical island layout make the fully equipped kitchen appealing to diners and cooks alike.
Five suite-style bedrooms at Casa Manta Ray can comfortably accommodate a large family or group of friends. There are two bedrooms with king beds, one with a queen, and two with a pair of double beds each; all have ensuite bathrooms. Details like mosaic-style or woven-mat ceilings and balconies with sitting areas reward lingering and luxuriating in the bedrooms.
Begin your stay with a flight into Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, 22 miles from the villa. Relive your honeymoon with a sunset stroll on Prieta Beach, a 2-minute drive away, spend the day at Playa Nacascolo, a 5-minute drive away, or venture out to Playa Cabuyal and Playa Panama, 25 and 35 minutes away by car, respectively. You’ll find shopping and dining in Playa Hermosa, 22 miles away, and Playa del Coco, 28 miles away. If you have the time, it’s well worth taking a day trip to a nearby national park such as Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park, Palo Verde National Park, Santa Rosa National Park or the Orosi volcano.
