The Bali House is the only luxury vacation rental home located on the main beach in Manuel Antonio. Two of the main reasons people come to Costa Rica are for the rain forests and the beaches. Located on a 45 acre rain forest private preserve with paths, streams & an organic garden which borders the beach, you can enjoy the best of both worlds at the Bali House. The vast majority of rental homes in Manuel Antonio are perched high up in the hills and you must take a taxi or bus to reach the public beach areas. At the Bali House you simply walk down our garden path and through our beach gate and you are on the beach in one minute. The Bali house was designed & constructed in Bali by well known Balinese Architect Ketut Arthana, was disassembled and shipped to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica ...The Bali House is the only luxury vacation rental home located on the main beach in Manuel Antonio.

The vast majority of rental homes in Manuel Antonio are perched high up in the hills and you must take a taxi or bus to reach the public beach areas. At the Bali House you simply walk down our garden path and through our beach gate and you are on the beach in one minute. The Bali house was designed & constructed in Bali by well known Balinese Architect Ketut Arthana, was disassembled and shipped to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica where it was rebuilt by a crew of Balinese craftsmen. The Bali House is composed of 4 separate buildings that surround a suspended infinity pool which are all connected by decking. The Main Living Pavilion houses the living room, dining room, sitting area, kitchen, and laundry room. The Master Bedroom is housed in a separate building and connected to the main living pavilion by a covered bridge over a water feature. The Master includes a separate dressing room and beautiful outdoor shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are housed in a 3rd building (one bedroom suite upstairs and 1 downstairs), and bedrooms 4 and 5 are located in the 4th building (one upstairs, one downstairs). Our guests always comment on how much they love the layout of our home. They can all be together in the main living pavilion or pool deck yet they can have privacy in their own bedroom suite. All bedrooms have king beds, a sitting area/desk, and private deck along with its own private full bath with tub, shower, double sinks, and separate water closet. The Bali House comes with housekeeping, a gardener, pool service, and full time house manager/concierge who can hire a private chef, arrange transportation from the San Jose Airport, arrange adventure tours, and make restaurant recommendations and reservations. We strive to do all that we can to make your vacation as enjoyable and stress-free as possible! Our location and unique design has made the Bali House one of the most requested rental homes in Manuel Antonio and we frequently receive reservations up to a year in advance. Why stay anywhere else when you can be in the rain forest, yet on the beach! More

About the neighbourhood
Located at the edge of the Maritime Zone which is about as close to the beach as you can get in Manuel Antonio, the Bali House offers one of the best locations in town. A 10 minute walk down the beach will bring you to the town of Manuel Antonio where you will find a grocery store, bakery, pharmacy, ice cream shop, restaurants, bars, and vendors all selling crafts. The entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park is only few minutes further. On the beach you will find banana boat rides and parasailing in addition to surfboard rentals. We offer private off-street lighted and secure parking. The local bus stop is located near the top of our driveway (10 minute walk from the Bali House). Taxis will come directly to the house to pick you up and take you anywhere you want to go.
