    1br villa
      This one bedroom villa is only steps away from the unspoiled beach of Playa Palo Seco. The villa is part of an upscale 23 acre vacation property that is beautifully landscaped and includes a well maintained pool and 24/7 security. 'Immaculate' is the best word to describe the property. If you enjoy comfort while communing with nature at a private beach that is unspoiled by development, watching monkeys travel the mangroves behind the condo on their way to the beach every day and unforgettable sunsets, this is the place for you. If you're looking for an affordable place to spend a few nights, weeks or months, this villa is perfect. The villa is located in an ideal location if you want to explore the Central Pacific! Internet access was previously only at the pool but will be installed in the villa in May 2014. I NEED AT LEAST A WEEK'S NOTICE BEFORE CHECK IN. I'M NOT ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE RENTALS WHO ARE LOOKING FOR ONLY A FEW DAYS IN ADVANCE. The property is located about 5 minutes outside Parrita which is a small town town situated between the tourist destinations of Jaco and Quepos/Manuel Antonio. There is a small bar/restaurant on the ocean just a 5 minute walk from the property. The food is simple, the prices reasonable and the people friendly. There is a nice restaurant open at a new resort about a 10 minute drive down the beach with a lovely setting and great menu. Downtown Parrita's restaurants are about a five minute drive away ( a short taxi ride) or there are the tourist oriented places in Jaco to the north and Quepos/Manuel Antonio to the south. Both are accessible by local bus from Parrita. Parrita also has two local groceries and there is an 'American' style grocery in Jaco. The kitchen is fully equipped as most guests tend to cook often at the villa. The villa features two screened in porches, a very modern bathroom, kitchen and large bedroom. There are two twin beds with new mattresses that slide together to form a comfortable king bed (European style). The furniture and impressive cabinetry are teak and were custom made by local craftsman. The eating area and casual living room are on the back screened in porch which is very typical for Costa Rica. The villa is air conditioned. The bathroom is modern with teak cabins and a granite counter top. There is one sink. The shower is a walk in shower that is beautifully tiled. There is a parking space outside the front door. The villa is about a 2.5 hour drive from the airport (SJO) in San Jose. This is an ideal location for someone with a car who wants to explore the central Pacific coast.

      Beach houses right on the BEACH! Enjoy the Pacific Ocean and free WIFI Beautiful property with serene rustic cottage right on the beach Playa Palma aka Bandera! Close to the quaint town of Parrita just 20 mins from Quepos & Jaco. Enjoy the serenity, mature palm and fruit trees and breaking waves of the ocean at the foot of the house. The first question people ask,"How close to the beach?". Our property is part of the beach. The house 50 meters to the water. You get the luxury of a beach, low traffic, high pleasure. There are monkeys in the trees, parrots in the morning and lots of beautiful Costa Rican nature right outside our door. What to really enjoy: walking the beach, and relaxing in the pool watching the iguanas, the birds, squirrels, and monkeys. Great restaurants in town and all needed services. Parrita became the 9th canton (county/municipality) of the province of Puntarenas on July 6th, 1971. Its only district carries the same name. Its three largest communities are La Julieta (commercial center), Parrita Centro and Pueblo Nuevo. La Julieta and Parrita Centro lie on each side of the old converted railroad bridge build in the 40s on the main coastal highway between Jaco and Quepos (a new two-lane concrete bridge which runs pararell to the old bridge, was built in 2009). There are two banks with ATM machines. There are also 3 full-service grocery stores, 3 hardware/building supply stores, 3 major appliance & furniture stores, about a dozen restaurants with great food at prices much below those in Jaco or Quepos. It has less commercial tourism than the nearby towns of Jaco and Quepos. Crime rates are still low compared to other tourist towns. Most people feel very safe in this town. Tourists visiting Parrita often walk with tranquility up and down the streets when shopping, banking and dining at local restaurants. Likewise on the nearby beach Palo Seco it is not unusual to see tourists take 2 to 4 mile walks alone without fear.

Getting AroundThe best way to get around in the area is by renting a car! That way you can go to all the nice beaches around and be able to get groceries if you're staying for some time. I can also help you if you need help with booking transportation.

You'll feel as if you're in your own private resort as you experience all the home has to offer. Traditional Spanish hacienda styling combines with tropical flair to create a welcoming retreat you'll never want to leave. Three generously sized and well-appointed bedrooms plus three full baths provide ample room to sleep up to 10 people, where the sounds of surf will lull you to sleep each night. The three bedrooms feature one king bed, one queen, and two doubles, plus a pull out sofa in the living room, providing plenty of privacy for everybody. The bathrooms feature large, walk-in showers. One bathroom includes an open air double shower where bougainvillea cascades over the wall to greet you.

A rancho, the covered bar and barbeque area by the pool, provides ample outdoor entertaining space. Outdoor fountains at the entry and by the pool add to the atmosphere.

                Villa Dos Gatos (House of Two Cats) is fronted by a large teak balcony featuring two hammocks + 4 person dining table - this is the signature location of the house with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. The main living area of the house is located on the upper level; at this level the ocean-view presents itself from all points in the open-concept kitchen, dining and living room areas. Vaulted ceilings, teak beams and numerous windows enhance this area with abundant light and air. The kitchen is well equipped with coffee maker, toaster, pots & pans, cutlery, dishes, glasses, blender, electric stove and fridge. For indoor dining a lunch bar separates the kitchen and living room - there are 6 bar-height, teak chairs. Behind the house is the private pool and rancho with propane and charcoal bar-b-ques; a bar in the rancho offers an outside dining option near the pool. The yard features a huge mango tree, two almond trees, numerous palms and other tropical plants. Beach, Ocean and Weather are the main attractions at Isla Palo Seco; they are spectacular! Isla Palo Seco is a barrier island, essentially a sand spit, that extends 8 km in length. The sand beach extends the entire length of the Island on the ocean-facing side; approximately 8 km of palm-lined, pristine beach. The ocean water is warm, surprisingly warm. Waves are constant; they are a surfer/boogie boarder's dream. At Dos Gatos we have 3 surf boards (2 long boards and 1 short board) and 4 boogie boards for our guests to use. At high or low tide the beach is breathtaking but if you want to walk the beach low tide is best. At low tide the ocean recedes to uncover a flat, sand strip that extends for more than half of the 100 or so metres between the water and the beach grass and palms. This flat sand is firm and a pleasure to walk. The beach is never crowded with people. Except for weekends and holidays when Tico (Costa Rican) families gather at the beach, it is almost deserted. I once walked the entire length of the Island and encountered only 3 people! The estero located on the back side of the island is extensive and it known for its fishing and sight seeing. The weather between December 1 and May 1 (summer) is predictable; except for the occasional rainfall in the evening or night - average daytime high temp is 33 c under clear skies and average nighttime lows are 21 c. Even in the green season there is sun on most days from early morning to early afternoon when the clouds roll in with late afternoon showers - the average temps vary only slightly. There are several very good restaurants on the beach: 'Mar Y Sol' is a restaurant/bar with relaxed atmosphere and good food, 'Beso Del Viento' offers French quesine by reservation, 'Hotel La Isla' has an extensive menu and the newest resort on the Island 'Clandestino Resort' and "Coco Mar" (newest restaurant on the beach) offer more upscale dining at reasonable prices.

Grey whales also migrate past out in the deep water at certain times of the year. Other Information: The home is convenient to San Jose and the Central Valley, with close proximity to several of Costa Rica's spectacular national parks: Manuel Antonio, Carara, and a bit further away, Marino Ballena. The small, authentic Costa Rican town of Parrita is close by. Many good restaurants are located a short drive away in either direction. The house also features high speed Internet and a Wi Fi network. A flat screen TV combined with a Roku box, as well as a well-stocked games cupboard provide indoor entertainment options.

                  The house is located in Playa Bandera, next to Playa Bejuco. Perfect beach break to surf in front of the house. One of CR's secret spots. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, bbq area, fully equipped, awesome place to stay and relax. Total paradise close to Jacó, Manuel Antonio and other famous bigger locations. The house is designed to relax and forget about your daily problems, either surfing, walking, swimming, or just watching the sunset and listening to the ocean before you fall asleep!! Playa Bandera is perfect to be in touch with nature, with almost no people living there and not that many tourists. It's the perfect place to get away from all and relax. The best way to get around in the area is by renting a car! That way you can go to all the nice beaches around and also able to get groceries if you're staying for some time. I can also help you if you need help with booking transportation. The house is located exactly feet away from the water. The beach is huge, perfect to walk for miles besides the ocean. All rooms have beach and ocean view. Recommend renting a car so you can travel around the area

There is a small reading library and some games. This has been our vacation home for many years. All rooms have ceiling fans. The bedroom has AC as well. Our cottage is in a neighborhood that is a mixture of locals and some vacation properties owned by Americans and Canadians. It is located in a beautiful area where palm plantation and farms meet the beach. Just 10 min away is the community of Parrita where you can shop for groceries, dine out and find banks, bakeries, butcheries, and pharmacies. The new hospital is just down the road. Our cottage would be for adults wanting an alternative to a resort area. Our location is perfect for day trips to various popular tourist sites in the central pacific most can be reached with 3/4 of an hour drive. for those who like a mixture of solitude and adventure we think you would enjoy time in our cottage and neighborhood. Jan & David Guest AccessThe only space not accessible to our guests is the "owners closet" where we keep our personal clothes and toiletries. Interaction with GuestsOur local Property manager will check our guests in and can help plan excursions including fishing trips, wildlife tours, and river rafting. Additionally our guests are free to contact us by phone or email. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is located within a farming and palm plantation area. There is a small school, soccer field, a couple of small local shops similar to a convenience store. The inhabitants are mostly Costa Rican with some vacation cottages & homes along the beach. From our cottage a 40 min walk south down the beach will bring you to an estuary & river that spills into the ocean. It is a beautiful spot with many birds. In the farm land across the road from our cottage Monkeys can be seen at certain times. This is a path that they take. Usually early morning is the best time to see them. Getting AroundThe grocery store at the south end of town in Parrita accepts credit cards as does the gas station And most restaurants. Most shops in Parrita take US $$ but will return any change in Costa Rica colones. Other Things to NoteA car is needed to fully enjoy your stay. The mountains around our property are spectacular and we enjoy day trips to see the wildlife, waterfalls and hike. A car would be needed for such things as well as getting to the nearest town of Parrita to shop for groceries or to dine out.
