Why Maria Fonseca Ureña chose Parrita

I recommend our house for your vacation to all the people like to have privacy, nature, peace of mind and get away of stress.

Palo Seco is a beach away from the crowded touristic places, where our guests can enjoy and know the costarican real life and enjoy the beautiful nature.

But for a change also is close enough to Jaco or Manuel Antonion.

What makes this villa unique

Direct beach front, 60.000 sqfeet of land, a big pool with 1.650 sqfeet area.

Home review

  • 4 of 5

Great house, very comfortable. well appointed. The property is a bit isolated . which is fantastic if you like having an entire beach to yourself. It takes about 20 minutes of driving to get to the main road, but we grew to appreciate the drive. One of the best parts of the property is Fran, Kattia and Israel, the caretakers. As there was no internet service they were great about recommending people to take us zip lining, surf lessons etc..

The only complaint we had were the mattresses in the two main bedrooms rooms could stand to be replaced. Both my wife and I had sore backs by the end of the week. Even our teenage daughters noticed it. But that was a minor inconvenience compared to the location and condition of the house. It was quite special and this is my 4th trip to CR. I think we have found our spot in the sun with this house and will most definitely be back here again.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The Positives:

The house was:




-Very clean

-Had everything we needed in the kitchen

-Pool was in the sun all day so the water was very warm all day and night (which we loved)

The Help/Staff were:



-Always bringing us coconuts to drink from

The beach was:


-HUGE it went on forever



The not so positives:

-The neighbors burned debris every morning throughout the day so we had to live with the smoke and smell, and at one point it was even making the rooms smell

-The Beach was reported to be a little dangerous to swim in by the locals so we didn't go past our knees

-It was a 15 minute drive on a bumpy gravel road, which at night time deviated from it's normal path (probably from some washout) and both us and our company almost drove straight into the hole, there was no signs indicating that there was a hole in front of us, good thing we stopped driving when we hit sand.

-There was only 1 bar at the other end of the gravel road (no other restaurants and stores), only stores were in town which was about a 25 minute drive (do your shopping before you leave the town).

All in all, it was a great place to stay and we had an amazing time, the weather was perfect in January.
