Name This House

Our home needs a name. If you don’t know why, check out Whats in a Name? then come back here to submit your ideas.

The house will be a vacation rental property when we are not there so for marketing purposes the name needs to be special. It needs to evoke some or all of the following: the exotic destination, the splendid tropical weather, the wild flora and fauna of the jungle, the ocean view, the serene calm of the ocean side environment, and casual comfort that all combine to make Manuel Antonio so special and our home the perfect place to enjoy it all. …and it needs to be in Spanish but easy for us non-Spanish-speaking Americans to pronounce.

How do I enter?

There are two ways to enter.

  1. Using the form below, submit your name, email address and suggested house name.
  2. Visit Like the page and submit your suggested house name via comments there.

If we choose your name and you were the first to suggest it, when the house is complete, we’ll give you one week in the house rent free*.

I will update a running list of suggested house names along with the first name and last initial of the suggester. I will not publish or share your full name or email with anyone but if you submit your suggestion via Facebook, your name will be visible there.


It would be best if the name is not used anywhere else in Costa Rica but it MUST be unique to the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area.

Here are a few rental management sites with properties in the area. Use them for inspiration and to insure that the name you suggest is not already in use.

Don’t know Spanish? and are great resources.
