I have stayed at Villa Las Floras with friends and then this 2nd recent visit was with my husband. Best beach ever! I can honestly say it was the most relaxing 2 weeks. During the "Friends" visit we went Zip lining & to dinner often. Parrita is a gem! There is a great bakery, butcher, fish, liquor store, and pharmacy's. ( I needed to deal with bug bite's don't go out at night without using spray.) There is also a great fruit and vegy truck and store front right off the main street in the middle of Parrita. All of the merchants want to help so do not be affraid to check out the local shops. But our days at Villa Las Floras will never be forgotten. We started with a long walk on the beach, it is hard to sleep past 6:30 because there is so much bird action. The first visit in September the monkey's came to the trees between the river bridge and the villa each morning at 6 - 7 am. The January visit they came between 8-9:30 am. After a beach walk we'd return to the pool shower and go for a dip. Return to the villa make breakfast and then head to the beach. We'd spend hours boogie boarding, reading books, playing in the sand, watching the surfers & fisherman. Then we'd head to Las Palmas for lunch. It is walking distance to the beach but we were always in the car because we' have boogie boards, floaties, beach mats, coolers with water and beer. So we often drove from the villa to the beach and then to lunch. Las Palmas is new and fantastic!! The fish soup is like none I've ever had. The ceveche was fabo, the grilled shrimp and chicken and rice was a daily staple, but when we were really hungry we'd order "The entire fish!" After lunch we'd head home, read around the pool, check email's, hang out in the clubhouse, english and french are spoken here. We'd play cards, shuffle board, horse shoes, darts, and swap stories of the newest and best places to eat. There is a turtle pond in the villa. Show up there anytime of day to watch the turtles interaction. Many herons live there, we saw a woodpecker and many different bird varieties. Amazing. My husband and I did a bunch of driving around for 3 days to Arienal, Manuel Antonio, Puntereas, Quepos, Jaco, Montezuma, & other towns. When we returned to Villa Las Flores we were glad we had a few more days to soak in Costa Rica!! There were 2 really cool rain storms. Besides being fully equipped at the house, there is an on-site manager who will help you with booking trips. Sue and Roger have made a very comfortable home!!
I fell in love with Costa Rica!! Staying in this villa was the perfect location for our 'girls' trip! We were central to so many places to go and do things! Around the corner from our villa, we fed monkeys bananas early in the morning. It was FABULOUS. The beautiful scenery and weather could not have been more perfect. I was there the end of August, 2007.
Can't WAIT to go back again!
I stayed at this slice of Heaven with 3 other girl friends. It is one of the most memorable vacations of my life!!! The Villa was perfect for relaxng, exploring, lounging, swimming, cooking, walking, and hours and hours of sightseeing. We walked across the street and hung out with the monkeys, which was an experience of a lifetime! We body surfed, zip-lined, walked the beach, devoured the local cuisine and stayed up late at night playing games and laughing!
The grounds surrounding this Villa are fantastic. It is safe, lush, meticulously manicured, full of flowers, super clean and GORGEOUS! We all swam daily in the pool just steps away and the owners have floating loungers for your use. And how fun to hop on the bikes and explore! You will see turtles lizards and incredible birds on the grounds right out your door!!
The kitchen has everything you will need to stay in and cook and if want to dine out you will find several nearby options, too! The shower is great and the linens were plush! The air conditioning was wonderful at the end of the day! The attention to detail to make this a great vacation home was more than we had hoped for.
If you want to stay in a clean, fun and comfortably decorated private home and skip the noisey and crowded resorts, this place is for you!! It is the best of both worlds... safe and quiet but close enough to experience some nightlife and bars! WE HAD A BLAST!!!! (we gals purchased our alcohol at the airport upon arrival... duty free! And the fruit and veggies along the way at the roadside stands are not to be missed!!!)
I would definitely go back and stay here again!!! You will, too!!!!
Viva la Costa Rica! ~~~ Mary ~~~
