Holiday Rental House
Nestled in a true wildlife sanctuary, this contemporary 3 bedroom home close up views of monkeys and macaws within Manuel Antonio Estates-- one of the most accessible and beautiful gated communities in the area. This gem is situated just minutes away from downtown Quepos, the white sand beaches of the Manuel Antonio National Park, and the new world-class Marina Pez Vela. The quality of the building materials and the detailed workmanship of the Kiskadee is exquisite. Imported Italian tiles, wooden French doors with ornate stained glass panels leading to the master bedroom, a spacious, elegant master bathroom, and the local hardwood finishes are just a few of the incredible features.

This gem is situated just minutes away from downtown Quepos, the white sand beaches of the Manuel Antonio National Park, and the new world-class Marina Pez Vela. The quality of the building materials and the detailed workmanship of the Kiskadee is exquisite. Imported Italian tiles, wooden French doors with ornate stained glass panels leading to the master bedroom, a spacious, elegant master bathroom, and the local hardwood finishes are just a few of the incredible features. Because of its location at the end of the cul-de-sac, the house enjoys complete privacy, as well as safety, with 24 hour security. The three comfortable bedrooms can easily accommodate 4 - 6 residents. Why rent two or three hotel rooms, when you can rent an entire, family-friendly house for the price of one hotel room? With a full kitchen feel free to take advantage of the local markets, including the farmers market on Friday naghts & Saturdays, to prepare your own meals with fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables and freshly caught fish. Or, just outside the estates you will find an abundant variety of restaurants from casual, ethnic, and al fresco, to 4 & 5-star gourmet dining with beautiful ocean views. Kiskadee Casa is ideal for families who love the surroundings of the lush rain forest and can't get enough of the pure sounds of the jungle. Step outside and be entertained by visitors such as bright, colorful toucans and macaws, playful monkeys and adorable sloths. Fruit trees and flowers are abundant on the property. Green areas cover a large portion of the estates with 5 km of hiking trails with small creeks and waterfalls. Ask the concierge for convenient swimming locatons nearby. Visitors can, also, frequent the Raindrop Spa, a beautifully appointed, Balinese-inspired new day spa with outdoor gardens, offering many types of therapies as well as yoga & Pilates and located right on the Estates' property. Although we don't have a pool on site, most local hotels will let you swim if you get a drink or eat there, you can hike to the waterfall and swim there and there is the ocean close by. With various modes of transportation easily accessible, you can enjoy a multitude of exciting activities in the area including zip-lining, whale and dolphin watching, boating, para-sailing, deep-sea fishing, bird watching, eco-tourism, tennis, and golf just to name a few. Not only are there tours of the park but many other local tours for which pick up can be arranged. Recommended examples are Damas Island, Rainmaker Park, Horseback tour to waterfall, Nighttime Jungle tour to name a few.. Shuttle or bus service is available to and from San Jose airport. One could rent a car at the airport and drive approximately 3.5 hours to Quepos/Manuel Antonio on good roads or fly Nature Air from San Jose to Quepos and arrange for car rental after arrival at one of the local agencies. Flights take about 25 minutes. Or choose to use local shuttle or taxi service once you arrive. Here is a quote from Forbes Magazine about Manuel Antonio Park: “Here is a stunning combination of beaches and coral reefs, perfect for snorkeling and exploring the area's famous tangle of mangroves. Rainforest jungles remain untouched habitats for Brown-throated Three-toed Sloths, iguanas, Central American squirrel monkeys and birds of extraordinary colors. One of Costa Rica's smallest national parks, Manuel Antonio is nevertheless one of its most popular, with activities ranging from white-water rafting and sea kayaking to horseback riding on one of the park's four beaches.” From Broadway World: “Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, has had its debut, and is now becoming one of the top 'boutique' travel destinations in the world. Forbes called Manuel Antonio National Park one of the '12 Most Beautiful National Parks of the World'. Costa Rica is fast becoming one of the top vacation spots for families. Manuel Antonio has much to offer including beautiful white sand beaches, calm waters, kid-friendly tours, National Park, and abundant, exotic wildlife. Kiskadee Casa is a budget-savvy, tropical rain forest oasis just minutes from all that Manuel Antonio has to offer. Enjoy your stay. Pura vida.More

About the neighbourhood
We are located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a gated community nestled in a hilly, forested area that is connected through other forested areas to Manuel Antonio National Park. This provides a corridor for wildlife, such as monkeys, kinkajous and birds to travel and forage for food. There is a beautiful spa on the grounds where you can enjoy a relaxing massage or engage in yoga or Pilates. We have contracted free maid and concierge service for your convenience and the office is located above the spa. There are a tremendous number of options for activities for nature lovers, adventurers, bird watchers, boaters, etc. There are many guided tours available, such as, canopy tours, zip-lining, islands, mangroves, frog habitat, horse-back riding, etc. Equipment may be rented for snorkeling, div...
