Casa Dragonfly is located in Valle Pura Vida, one of the most desired communities in Manuel Antonio. It offers a very tranquil and serene setting away from the commercial bustle of hotels and shops, but it is in close proximity to the Marina Pez Vela and all the amenities of Manuel Antonio. Located near a cul-de-sac, the house won’t experience noise from traffic, but it will, however, be a meeting point for the exuberant wildlife that neighbors it.

The property is right behind the Gaia Wildlife Reserve, a haven dedicated to providing wildlife with the right habitats for their development. This will grant you a first-row experience of the soothing sounds of nature, swinging titi and white-faced monkeys, flying macaws and toucans, and shy three-toed and two-toed sloths. This charming proximity to Costa Rica’s exotic natural resources has made it a very successful rental property not only short term but also long term.

The house comes at a great value for the price, including a single-level home and two apartments with a long-term rental history for additional income. On the main house, there is a double glass door with frames made of local wood that awaits to welcome you inside. The first thing that greets you is the open floor plan featuring accent lights and inset lighting. The area encompasses the dining room, living room, bar, and kitchen.

The entire house features a neutral color palette for an inviting ambiance, tile floors, and wooden accents throughout. The kitchen is beautifully outfitted with carved wood cabinetry, a breakfast counter, stainless steel appliances, and a built-in stovetop and oven.

Two guest bedrooms with a shared bathroom as well as a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom can be found adjacent to the great room. Each bedroom includes a split air conditioning unit, closet, and a ceiling fan. The main house also has a hardwood sundeck that runs through the entire length and sprawls over to the pool. With the backdrop of the verdant foliage that characterizes Manuel Antonio, it is perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining friends and family.

The additional two apartments are located next to the main house. They each come with a fully equipped kitchen, cozy living room and dining area, one bedroom, and one bathroom. The apartments and the house are all included with the furniture. Overall, the entire property is full of lush vegetation and offers a great sense of arrival provided by the jungle that surrounds it.

Having been recently reduced in price, Casa Dragonfly is one of the best values you can get for your money, especially if you are looking for passive income or rental investment in Manuel Antonio. The distribution of two apartments and one home gives rise to a host of opportunities in terms of rental.

You can live in the main house and rent the other two apartments long-term or short-term, as the location works for both. Or you can rent the house as well as the apartments and turn it into an income generator. The house offers tremendous flexibility and unbeatable potential, allowing you to be creative in your business model.

Whether you are looking for a second vacation home or an investment property, Casa Dragonfly has all the potential to be what you want it to be. By far, it is the ideal location for those looking to enjoy the convenience of Manuel Antonio, the beauty of the rainforest, and a serene and quiet setting, at a great price.
