Casa Dolce Vita is Manuel Antonios’s most successful luxury vacation home rental for under $1,000,000. It combines everything desired in a rental vacation home: privileged location, amenities within walking distance, a privacy-oriented layout, iconic views, and eye-catching architecture. Not to mention, the wow factor of every residence in Manuel Antonio: beautiful flora and fauna around it. All these features are behind the success of this rental property and have made it the backdrop of many couples’ and families’ fond memories of their getaways.

The distribution of the house is very privacy-oriented which makes it ideal as a rental property. It encompasses three levels where each bedroom takes up the entire floor, and the living areas are concentrated on a separate level. On the ground floor, you will find a master suite that sprawls over to the pool and deck area through louvered, wooden doors. The room includes a rustic king-size bed and a customized ensuite bathroom.

One level above, you will find another master suite with a similar, customized ensuite bathroom; the only difference is that instead of access to the pool, you get jaw-dropping views from a private balcony. There is yet another bedroom on the fourth level which boasts the same customized ensuite bathroom as the master suites, but with an undoubtedly superior vantage point.

The third level features an integrated, open-air dining room, living room, and kitchen, as well as a full bathroom. The open-air area was designed with bonding time in mind, as while a member of the family gets inspired by the tropical surroundings and prepares a delicious meal, the other members can be lounging in the dining room or living room as they wait for their food to be ready. Plus, the open-air concept is always having monkeys and other species coming in guided by the delicious smells!

The architecture and design of the house are very Bali-inspired but with a Manuel Antonio tropical twist. In the kitchen, you can find granite countertops, wood cabinetry, a built-in oven and stovetop, a prep sink, hand-crafted stone and wood columns, exposed beams, and a massive 15-foot ceiling with bamboo accents. Moreover, there is woven matting offering plenty of ventilation and allowing the invigorating pacific ocean breezes to imbue the space, along with spiral staircases connecting all the levels.

Casa Dolce Vita was built by the area’s most successful developers of rental homes. Its location in Pacific Canyon Drive also hosts a myriad of other lucrative and long-standing rentals, but none at the price of this one. It currently generates around $60,000 in net returns for the owners while being overseen by a world-class management team.

With an asking price several hundred thousand dollars below neighboring residences, this investment opportunity is ideal for an investor wishing to have a vacation rental home that can produce very strong annual returns.
