Why Mary Dierkes chose Los Pargos

We stumbled upon this point of land overlooking one of Costa Rica's best surf breaks and decided to build a family beach house on that very spot. The ocean views are 200 degrees, the surf pounding on volcanic shores, a short walk to great swimming, surfing in 85-degree water, endless sunshine, fish jumping, pelicans, shorebirds, mermaid pools, whale-watching, lush landscapes abound.

What makes this house unique

Off-the-beaten path solemnity of rural Costa Rica; the beauty and power of the ocean, the lushness of the tropical lowland landscape, the dynamic ebb and flow of the Playa Negra beach, the volcanic land, the generous and warm and lively spirit of the Costa Rican people, the dozens of different surf breaks within a walk or a drive, the fish, the food, the yoga, the beer, and a great group of neighbors, locals, ex-pats, and others.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a fantastic stay we had at Casa Ohana. It was more than we could have imagined. Steps away from our own private beach, exotic pool tides, rocks and more. Case Ohana is only one house away from complete privacy on one side. The other side allows access to the rest of the world if you so desire. The house is wonderfully maintained, clean, airy and with all amenities. We were thankful for the bedrooms having air-conditioning. That and the ceiling to floor windows in the master bedroom made that room an oasis. But the rest of the rooms were perfect as well. Thank you Mary for your assistance, patience and hospitality. Be sure and grab the bakery truck when it comes by!

Truly gorgeous location, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This house did not disappoint! The views are spectacular, the home spacious, light , clean and very well equipped. Our entire family loved the pool, the beach, and the surfers among us were in heaven. View of the break at Playa Negra was a real treat. We appreciated the boogie boards, beach towels, and loads of books and games. We were very happy with this choice and the description was quite accurate. Highly recommend the catered food from La Ventana, which was a treat to have waiting at the end of a long travel day, very healthy, delicious and large portions!

Casa Ohana is a dream home.

We have stayed in 4 homes now in Guanacaste over the past 4 years, and this home is by far the most beautiful and enjoyable. Simple and elegant, Ohana is conveniently close to everything you need. We loved it. Watching the serious surfing everyday from the porch was delightful and inspiring, pool is beautiful, ping pong on lanai, porches everywhere...I could go on and on. We had a delightful time.

Never wanted to leave Casa Ohana

  • 5 of 5

This house and site are absolutely spectacular! Upon arrival at the end of the driveaway one sees this structure curving towards the ocean and compelling you to to discover it's mysteries further. Getting to the front entry the vistas draw you to the beach and the rocks that are framed by the gateway to an outdoor lanai that is seems set up to draw the breeze and take in the beauty of the lanscape beyond. The Curved stairs in the entry draw you up to a beautiful expansive living area where we had fun hanging out and onece again enjoyed the most amazing shoreline and perfect spot to look at the surf . Climbing further up the floating stairs were the bedrooms with their soaring ceilings yet cosy spaces that had views to both teh ocean and the mountains in the opposite directions. The rooms were completely light and airy. On the bed in the master suite, it felt as if you were sleeping on a raft in the ocean, the building seemed to dissapear and the waves beyond felt as if they were touchable. The sunsets were exquisite.

Wish I could stay forever.
