With 6000+ sq ft of interior space and 3000+ sq ft of terraces and decks with magnificent views, you can’t help but enjoy the comforts of your own private tropical estate! Casa de Anjali is the newest luxury home in the area. “Anjali” in Sanskrit means “reverence”. Casa de Anjali was created out of reverence for the land and people of Costa Rica, using the minimal amount of footprint, planting more trees than were cut, while employing local artisans inspired to display the mastery of their skills.

Like a precious gem, the tri-level artisan home is carefully set amidst two acres of lush tropical, wild-life corridor rainforest. Such spacious privacy is rare, especially so conveniently located to all the best that Manuel Antonio has to offer. It is just a 15 minute walk to Manuel Antonio National Park and beach and only minutes away from local restaurants, shops, and cafes in the heart of Manuel Antonio.

As you pass through the private gated entrance and guard house, one is immediately surrounded by cool jungle relief upon entering this enchanted realm. Descending to the multiple parking area and carport, Anjali’s inviting countenance welcomes you with glass tower stairwell hinting of cascading water and artisan-Zen grand entry. To the right are 3 stories of bedrooms, each with their own unique ocean and rainforest views, terrace areas, full baths, and walk-in closets. This section includes three king bed suites, two bedrooms with twins that convert to kings, and a swing-room with a double bed and optional day bed. There is also the solitary double bed at poolside; altogether accommodating up to 15 guests.

The social wing is an expanse of living, dining, and kitchen areas with vaulted teak ceilings and designer furnishings. The gourmet chef’s kitchen, wine cooler, ice machine, breakfast bars, and entertainment center serve a variety of gatherings from intimate to grand. Nine foot tall folding window walls reveal magnificent vistas and draw you onto the wide terrace where high end outdoor lounging and dining furniture is conveniently ranged along the balconies.

From the lower level, swim and play in the salt-sanitized infinity pool or just relax and enjoy the view from the built-in Jacuzzi. Relaxation and enjoyment is inevitable with the numerous shady and sunny lounging locations on tile, teak, or lawn as well as a complete outdoor barbecue kitchen, drink station, dining area, and outdoor shower.

The Puntarenas region

Located in Costa Rica’s largest province Puntarenas, Puntarenas city is the largest city in the Central Pacific. Some 120 kilometers west of the capital San Jose, Puntarenas means ‘sandy point’ in Spanish, and used to be one of the country’s principal seaports. Situated in the Gulf of Nicoya, Puntarenas has played a huge role in the history of Costa Rica.

For years this city was a major sea port. However, now it is mostly used as a stopover port for many cruise ships that sail the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Still used as an important commercial fishing port, Puntarenas offers visitors and locals alike, a variety of tantalizing fresh sea foods such as shrimp, lobsters, fish, etc.

This city by the sea attracts thousands of tourists yearly, mainly because Puntarenas is frequently used as a central point when exploring the many beautiful beaches and islands in the surrounding areas, such as Playa Naranjo,Playa Mal país, San Lucas, Cedros and Jesuita. Many national parks and nature reserves are also close at hand, like the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, theSanta Elena Forest Reserve, the Cabo Blanco Reserve, the Parque Nacional Corcovado, the Parque Nacional Carara and the Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio. Visiting Puntarenas on the weekend or during local holidays is also an old tradition among Costa Ricans themselves.

A lively and attractive city, perhaps one of Puntarenas’s most interesting features is the Paseo de los Turistas. This is a tree-lined promenade adjacent to the beach. This area turns into a colorful street on weekends, as people from all over flock the popular restaurants, discos, cafes, bars and hotels that are found here. While the beach here is not safe for swimming because the water tends to be pretty murky, it is still a great place to hang out and relax with the local Ticos.

It is definitely worth exploring this city, as there are many beautiful old unusual buildings found all over the place, as well as several fabulous restaurants and hotels. Puntarenas also has a lovely old church, which is a must see as well. During peak tourist seasons, visit the Casa de la Cultura for some excellent plays and concerts. Home to a number of festivals and carnivals, a good time to visit the city is during the Festejos Populares in November, and the Fiesta del Virgin del Mar in July. During February and March, the city comes alive with annual carnival celebrations as well.
