One look at the chalet's photos will show the reader that my home is lovely and and tastefully furnished. It is priced for a couple, and perfectly sized for two.

About the neighborhood
Casa Chalet is located in the gated community of Manuel Antonio Estates which has 24/7 security. The chalet, unlike condos and apartments, is a free-standing single family home nestled in the rainforest with privacy and great opportunities to view monkeys, birds, sloths, butterflies and other creatures. We are the smallest home in the community and other's rent for three times our price per night, so you are getting the same location at a fabulous rate! We have a great onsite rental office to assist you from the day of booking for transportation, activity, tour, sightseeing, and dining options. Walk to stores, restaurants, marina, outdoor market, and take the three mile bus ride (runs every half hour from the stop near our entrance) to the lovely beaches and National Park.
How to get there
Bus Shuttle Fly Taxi Locally, the public bus loops from Manuel Antonio and Quepos every half hour
