The Valle Pura Vida Estate is nestled deep in the neighborhood of its namesake: Valle Pura Vida (aka the 'Valley of Pure Life'). There are few homes in Manuel Antonio that show as well as the photos indicate--but this home goes beyond expectations. The entire home is divided into 3 levels:
The main level consists of a spacious living area and huge kitchen which communicate via numerous sliding glass doors to the 'backyard' pool area, and ocean-view 'front' balcony. The living area is beautiful decorated and well-lit, with exotic stone floors, leading into a billiards area with wooden floors. The kitchen defies the saying 'too many cooks in the kitchen', as there is room for them all, and plenty of granite countertop space. Also on the main level is the master bedroom, with ensuite bathroom and balcony. The pool is huge and curvaceous, with a rancho and bar to one side.
The upper level consists of two ocean-view bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and also a separate living area which could easily be converted into another bedroom if so desired.
The lower level is an owner's apartment, complete with its own master bedroom, living area, balcony and full kitchen. This level could be separate for the owner to live in, or included in the home as a vacation rental.
This home is ideal for someone who wants to be in the middle of Manuel Antonio, but set back from the busy main road. It's just 10 minutes drive to both Quepos and the main public beach & national park. Furthermore, one can walk to a couple of local beaches within a 25 minute walk, or the area's only accessible waterfall, El Salto. Valle Pura Vida is known for its wildlife, with frequent visits from sloths, monkeys, iguanas, toucans, macaws and more.
