Casa de las Cascadas is an award winning design by renown Costa Rican architect Andres Morales--and is a modern tropical home with a working waterfall, 20-foot windows in the living area, and a covered breezeway connecting the upper bedrooms. Casa Las Cacsadas is located in El Salto gated community in central Manuel Antonio, and it sits on 2.4 acres of lush gardens. There are exceptional views of the mountains, jungle and ocean, and tons of local wildlife in the surrounding area. Its is just 5 minutes to Quepos and the Pez Vela Marina, or 5 minutes to the public beach and world famous Manuel Antonio National Park.
The home is a three-bedroom home also with a studio apartment below the master wing. There are two levels in the main house: 2 bedrooms on the upper level--a master with a king bed, private bath, walk-in closet and wrap-around balcony, and a guest room with a queen bed, private bath and walk-in closet, & a bedroom on the lower level with two double beds, a private bath, and sitting area with direct access to the waterfall pool.
The apartment is accessed via a short garden path from the downstairs foyer, or bedroom. It has a queen bed, kitchenette, sitting area, covered balcony and private bath. Water flows through center of house and pours over a waterfall into the lower pool. The upper pool has great sunsets and mountain views, and there is a barbecue grill as well. The sparsely-populated community offers great areas for morning walks--and even a longer hike to a little-known beach called La Macha. The community is gated with a guard 24/7. There is a covered parking area for 2 cars on the lower level.
Casa Cascadas is a great opportunity to use the home as a primary residence or as a lucrative Manuel Antonio Rental home.
