Nearest break: Zancudo Beach (0.2 miles, < 5 minutes walking)
We have a great beach break right here-only a 3 minute walk. The waves vary-right now it is really big about 8 foot. But most of the time it is 2-4 foot. This beach is located behind the Osa Peninsula. So the waves get progressively smaller as you go north. You have to see the map. Pavones, a famous left-hand point break is close by as well. When the waves are smaller, it is usually good here. If it gets really big you go to Pavones. I imagine it is rockin right now! The house is available starting Monday, August 7 2012 and so far free until November. This area is off the beaten track and is worth checking out. Zancudo Beach is not on the map here yet....so that is why the location from the surf sounds strange...now they need to put us on the map

Welcome to Akira Reserve, where the rainforest meets the beach in beautiful Manuel Antonio! Villa Akira is a 5 bedroom 7 bath Balinese villa nestled into the rainforest just steps away from the beach. The villa welcomes the jungle and the refreshing sea breezes, creating a cool and exotic location that intoxicates our guests with the sights and sounds of nature. Monkeys visit our pool deck daily. Many times sloths can be seen up in the trees, and if you are a bird lover - toucans, parrots, mot-mot's, hummingbirds and many other exotic birds make their home here. Our location is perfect for guests who love the beach and for those who want to maximize their beach time. Take an early morning swim in the warm Pacific Ocean or take a leisurely walk along the beach any time of day. Have lunch at one of the many beachside restaurants, then walk back to the villa and take a refreshing dip in the pool or relax on the deck under the shade of the mango tree. Take an afternoon nap in one of our hammocks, but don't sleep too long because sunsets on the beach are spectacular! We build bonfires for many of our guests who enjoy staying on the beach until well after sunset. Our lighted pathway makes the beach accessible after dark. Most rental homes in Manuel Antonio are perched high in the hills so when you feel like going to the beach you must take a taxi, bus, or endure a long exhausting walk. At Villa Akira you simply walk down our path and you are on the beach in one minute. It's just a ten minute walk down this beautiful palm lined beach to reach the National Park and the small beachside town of Manuel Antonio. There you will find just about anything you will need such as a new modern grocery store, a pharmacy, a liquor store, shops, restaurants, bars, an ice cream parlor, and a marketplace with vendors selling crafts and local food specialties. Pampering, privacy, and seclusion are paramount at Villa Akira. Come enjoy the peace and quiet - no loud neighbors, no street traffic noise, only the sounds of the jungle and the waves rolling in on the beach can be heard at night. Villa Akira, nicknamed "The Bali House", is the only rental home on a 50 acre reserve offering total privacy and seclusion. Our villa is housed in four separate structures which surround a suspended infinity pool with views over the top of the rainforest and out to the Ocean. The main living pavilion houses the living room, dining area, sitting area, kitchen and laundry room. Each bedroom suite is separate from the main living pavilion and has private keyed entrance, air conditioning, a king bed, sitting area, desk, upscale designer bathroom, and deck. The villa sleeps 10-12 people comfortably. Villa Akira was designed by Balinese architect Ketut Arthana. Arthana is internationally recognized for his insightful work in designing luxury residences, tropical resorts and spas throughout Asia, Hawaii, North America and Europe including the elegant Puri Woolandari hotel in Bali, one of the Small Leading Hotels of the World. The villa was initially designed and constructed in Bali from Indonesian ironwood. It was dissasembled and shipped to Costa Rica where it was carefully reconstructed by a team of Balinese craftsmen. This truly is one of the most unique homes in all of Costa Rica. Come and enjoy our exotic hideaway in the most desirable location that Manuel Antonio has to offer... in the rainforest, yet on the beach!
