The Monkey House has one of the BEST LOCATIONS you could ever imagine in Manuel Antonio. The home and property, which was long used by a world famous writer as his bastion from which to seek inspiration and write his books, has been a private residence for the past 10 years.

The Monkey House is a quaint two bedroom villa, with a studio like feel. You enter the gated property through its private and covered garage area, and immediately feel the serenity of the space. The villa itself has a small, yet completely functional kitchen and dining area, lofted bedroom and full bathroom, living area and a second guest bedroom and guest bathroom off one side of the villa. There is an expansive patio area where you naturally just want to drop into one of the rocking chairs and start gazing at the view and wildlife. The owners, who are avid primate enthusiasts (hence the name) have worked to insure the trees around the property are kept in tact, while still insuring the views of the home have integrity.

The house is one of only a handful of properties in the area which provide a turn key ready, multi bedroom option for under $500,000 and it is also an AMAZING opportunity for someone looking for a project to unlock huge equity upside with a remodel and expansion plan. The property is adjacent to one of the most exclusive adults-only hotels in Costa Rica. There are several properties that are adjacent or nearly adjacent with asking prices well over $1,500,000. It is all in the location, and this home's location is superb making this a special opportunity at a great value.
