Casa Anoro - Description


Añoro is a unique word with no direct translation. It is pronounced 'ahn-your-o' and in Spanish refers to a longing for something missing in your heart.

Just completed, Casa Añoro is one of the newest luxury home in Manuel Antonio. Casa Añoro rests on one of the highest points in town in an exclusive community of multimillion dollar homes.

Casa Añoro was designed by Michael Cunningham who has owned homes and managed dozens of properties in Manuel Antonio for many years, including the award winning CasaTolteca. His new home, Casa Añoro, will become his permanent home later this year. This is the only chance you have to see Casa Añoro before it is taken off the rental market and becomes the owners personal home. Because this will be his permanent home, Casa Añoro is filled with high end details. To preserve these high end touches, we do have a minimum age of 15 for any guest in the home.

Indoor / Outdoor Living: CasaTolteca
The 25 foot wall of windows separating the indoor great room with the outdoor terrazza completely opens up giving you almost 1000 square feet of great room living area, completely covered by beautiful slabs of coral stone flooring.

Take three steps down to the pool area for even more lounging space. The infinity edge pool covered with imported Italian glass tiles allows you to gaze miles up the sandy coast line.

The entire home does have air-conditioning, but you may not ever need since the home was designed to capture the breezes and sweep them through the house.


Gourmet Kitchen:
The owners love to eat, drink, and entertain and have actually attended culinary school. Casa Añoro's kitchen is equipped to please any chef. CasaTolteca The 12 feet of exotic Brazilian granite counter space contains Bosch, Kitchen Aid, and Decor appliances. In addition, there is a 9 foot island to prepare and serve food. Of course, the wine refrigerator is available for your use.

Limited Stairs:
Manuel Antonio is very hilly, forcing virtually every home in town to have many stairs. Casa Añoro has all the essentials on one floor. Park your car and walk in the front door, the master bedroom, kitchen, living area, and outdoor terrazza are all on one floor making it handicap accessible. There are only three steps down to the pool level right off the living area.

Ultimate Location:
Casa Añoro is located on one of the highest points in town, at the very end of a private road, overlooking the famous Gaia Reserve. This means no cars, traffic, noise, or even other people will ever go past the home. You are in complete privacy surrounded by rain forest, our gardens, and the nature reserve, yet you are less than 3 minutes to the main road where you will find restaurants and shops. Huge panoramic ocean views stretch across the horizon guaranteeing you a perfect ocean sunset every night, any day of the year.

Unique Pool:
CasaToltecaWith an infinity edge corner facing straight up the coast line, you can daydream as you watch the surf breaking on miles and miles of shoreline. The large pool also includes a sitting area at the far edge where you can relax and enjoy the panoramic ocean views over the rainforest reserve while having a cool drink.

Even the tiles in the pool at Casa Añoro are unique... made from imported Italian glass sparkle in the light.

After your stay with us, we know you will understand the meaning of "Añoro"... your heart will always desire to return to Costa Rica and Casa Añoro.

Casa Anoro - Location


Manuel Antonio Hills - The 'Beverly Hills' of Manuel Antonio. Private communities with dozens of multi-million dollar homes scattered through the hills. Private, quiet, safe, and surrounded by rainforest and wildlife reserves are just a few reasons why homes in this area are in such demand.
Most homes in this area sit high on the hilltops so they have incredible panoramic ocean and/or valley views that face due west for spectacular sunsets.

Casa Anoro - Reviews

We go to Costa Rica every year and love the country. We always rent homes but this is our first time in Casa anoro. We wanted to try this new home while it is still available for rent. It did not disappoint!

I can highly recommend Casa Anoro for anyone staying in Manuel antonio that wants to get away from the crowds and enjoy a peaceful, spectacular view. The house is about a 2 minute drive down a small road to the main road where there are plenty of restaurants. It's only another 5 minutes to the beaches and national park. I'd definitely recommend that you have a car since the house is very high up on the hill.

Because the house is so high up, the views are unbelievable! Nothing but trees and ocean as far as you can see. We took sunset photos everyday (they just seemed to get better and better every day). We never had to turn on the a/c. The breezes were always plentiful and kept the house comfortable all day. We would book the home again next year, but the owner will be living in the house and the house will no longer be on the market.

If you have the chance, don't pass up an opportunity to stay at this beautiful home. You will not be disappointed.
Casa Anoro is perfectly situated to enjoy spectacularly colorful sunsets over the water. Mornings are equally gorgeous as birds chirp and sing. We enjoyed seeing many tropical birds including a tucan who visited us several times. The house has spectacular views with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors, and the cliff-side setting leaves you feeling like you're suspended in nature. The locals are friendly and truly appreciate the tourists. It's a perfect location to enjoy luxurious relaxation after morning adventures. We enjoyed a guided nature walk, mangrove boat tours, and invigorating ziplines, but the highlight of the vacation were the quiet hours spent at Casa anoro.
Absolutely amazing property. Plenty of room for 6 people to socialize but also has private balconies and spots to have some private time to read, or just enjoy the perfect weather and beauty of the rainforest. Trip up the mountain to the Casa is a challenge and I would definitely recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. That said, the view is 100% worth it and Thomas, the concierge lead us up the first time. Mike, the owner is easy to work with and his Thomas's assistant, Hazel was fabulous. She arranged all of our adventures and even did some last minute rearranging without a problem.
The property is beautifully furnished and well equipped for meal preparation. A personal chef is available but we just never got around to that. However, I am sure we would have been pleased. We went white water rafting, zip-lining, some went on the Rain Maker Tour and we also had a boat tour through the Mangroves with Manuel antonio Expeditions. All these awesome adventures were recommended and arranged by Mike's staff.

We were met in Quepos and we followed the concierge to our home. In hindsight I wish that we had been shown the grocery store, bakery and fish market. We found the best places at the end of our trip after exploring on our own. The drive up to the villa was a little scary , but it was worth it once you saw the view! Thank goodness we had rented a car because the villa is quite a hike from anything.
The home was beautiful and had everything we could have needed. I would have liked some games or puzzles available for the rainy afternoons . Our housekeeper was wonderful . Although she did not show up one day and we had no clean towels. It would have been nice to have access to the linen closet .
We had a private chef and his wife come and cook breakfast and dinner one day and that was true treat!!
The best thing about Casa Anora was the view! Our least favorite thing was the road and driveway leading to it.

We travel quite a bit and rent homes when possible. We've stayed in many homes around the world and Casa Anoro has to be one of the best, if not the very best. The beds were comfortable memory foam mattresses and the sheets were high quality which made for a very comfortable sleep. Double sinks in each bathroom gave us plenty of room to get ready each morning. The kitchen was huge and featured high end appliances. Even the gas grill was a unique infra-red grill. Cooking and preparing food was a treat.

The layout of the house was perfect, allowing us to cook in the kitchen while still being part of the rest of the group on the covered deck and others swimming in the pool. It felt like one large living area that we could all be together no matter what we each were sitting (or swimming).

I also have to mention the very cool pool light that slowly changes colors at night.

But the absolute best part of this house was the view! The house is located at the end of a private road with nothing but rain forest reserve and a huge panoramic ocean view in sight. Other than two rooftops in the distance, we couldn't see or hear any other neighbors. In a touristy town with hundreds of rental homes stacked up right next to each other, the privacy makes this home very unique.

The pictures of this home do not give it justice... it's really one of those homes you have to see to believe.

We hardly ever left the house and enjoyed watching the sun set into the ocean every night.

We thank the owner and his wonderful staff for letting us stay in his home. We will certainly be back one day.
