LUXURIOUS 4 BEDROOM MOUNTAIN ESTATE WITH GORGEOUS OCEAN VIEWS

Parrita Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Beautiful Ocean and Mountain views.

This modern, 5500 square foot villa, has everything you need to have a truely relaxing and memorial 'real' Costa Rican vacation away from the crowds. Secure, private, and relaxing. Located on 60 acres of your own lush jungle paradise.

Perfect for families, friends, or couples that just want to 'get away from it all' and enjoy.

The two story house has an oversized master bedroom on the upper floor with an oversized California King bed. The master bath, with tub and shower, is stunning. 3 sets of beautiful teak double doors open onto a complete wrap around balcony, perfect for stargazing and viewing the lights of the valley below. AIr conditioning is included for those who wish, but with the doors open and the fans on you'll sleep like a baby. There is an office desk and wifi for those who feel the need to keep up with the outside world.

The second and third bedrooms, though smaller, are equally as comfortable, with queen sized beds, air conditioners, and access to the balcony.

The second bathroom which has a huge walk in shower, is located here.

The fourth bedroom is located downstairs, and also has a queen sized bed. Although there is no air conditioning in this room, you really don't need it as a fan is all it takes to keep nice and comfortable.

A half bath, as well as laundry facilities are located adjacent.

The kitchen is modern and well equipped, with marble countertops, and a gas stovetop and electric range. All necessary appliances, plates, silverware, etc. are included. The stainless steel dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer will keep you going.

The dining area is quite comfortable with two tables that sit four each, and a bar with two stools.

The living area is also quite comfortable with two couches, a chair and a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable, stereo and DVD player for your viewing pleasure. That's if you can drag yourself inside long enough to watch something, as most guests just want to be outside at the pool area.

The bottom floor double doors open onto a complete wrap around deck and the beautiful infinity edge pool. The pool has a built in waterfall and swim jet package. It is the perfect place to watch the sun rise and set while enjoying the views with a cup of coffee or a toddy in your hand. There is ample seating on the deck for intimate conversation or partying with your friends. Jump in the pool or catch some rays on our comfortable reclining lounge chairs.

If your party is extra large there is an adjacent managers apartment that we sometimes use. Though not as extravagent as the main house, it is quite comfortable with it's own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

We can also arrange transfers to and from the airport in San Jose.

Attractions: Being midway between the two largest beach towns on the Pacific offers many attractions.

Jaco and Quepos offer the best restaurants and nightlife on the coast. Manuel Antonio the best beaches and coves. Los Suenos Resort and Marina, the best in all Central America, includes a world-class marina and championship golf course. The brand new marina in Quepos, Marina Pez Zela, along with Los Suenos, make this area one of the most wonderful bases of operation for sports fishing and snorkeling in all the world.

Adjacent to the estate is Sky Mountain Canopy, which boasts the highest, longest, and best zip line in all of Costa Rica. Paid admission to the canopy tour includes beautiful hiking trails and a real nice waterfall. We can walk, drive, or ride the horses to the waterfall. There is also a wonderful waterfall with 3 different pools (Tres Pilas) at the base of the hill. It is an easy drive and easy hike to these falls.

There are probably a dozen different beaches just a short half hour drive from the estate.

Some are perfect for swimming and some are world class surf beaches. All are great for picnics, walking, and watching the sun set. Playa Palo Seco, just outside Parrita, and Esterillos to our west, both have several little resorts with wonderful restaurants for memorial sunset dining. Parrita and Playon closer to the hill have many very good Tico restaurants for those who prefer the local cusine and culture.

We offer the use of our Toyota Prado Landcruiser (7 passenger) including driver, for only $150 per day (compare that to Budget or Alamo $150 per day w/no driver). You pay only for the days you need the car. You also pay for the gas. We will take you anywhere you wish to go or show you how to get there. If you have a larger group, we can arrange transfers with a very reliable local driver.

We know a lot of cool places to go and you just sit back and relax.

Driving in CR can be quite the stress-filled adventure, especially at night.

We offer our SUV and driver as an alternative to you having to rent a car.

A few reasons this works for some people:

(1) We pick you up and drop you off at the airport, no hasseling at the car rental

(2) We usually know where we are going, lol.

(3) Bless their hearts, the ticos are the worlds worst drivers

(4) Many of our guests tend to enjoy the nightlife and CR has just recently enacted very stiff DUI penalties so the guests would prefer to just sit back and enjoy the ride. You also just pay for the car the days you use it.

We can usually get you a more affordable rate on transfers locally then you can get on your own.

When you decide on the exact dates we will send you a rental

agreement. You execute the agreement and send it back to us.

We require a 50% deposit forwarded to us.

When the funds are posted your rental date is confirmed. The balance will be due ,and payable in US$ funds upon your arrival in Costa Rica.

Email us back and leave a call back number should you have any further questions.

Talk to you soon.

Hola,

We are Randy and Claudia Dains from Idaho, partners in Casa Brisas de la Montana, along with Vern Eames, also from Idaho.

It is our goal here at Casa Brisas to make sure that you have the greatest experience possible on your vacation to beautiful Costa Rica. When you leave we want you to leave with a smile on your face and a treasure trove full of wonderful memories. We, like Disneyland, want to be known as the 'happiest place on earth'.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

We chose Casa Brisas de la Montana because of the absolutely stunning beauty and tranquility of the area. The local 'Ticos' are absolutely the best, most genuine people you will ever want to meet. Living here on 'the hill' is a dream come true for my wife and I.

Secluded, beautiful estate that is close enough to all the major tourist areas to make them easily accessable for a truly exciting vacation. But best of all, they are also easily escapeable for a truely relaxing vacation. You get the best of both!

GREATEST STAY EVER

  • 5 of 5
This was my greatest stay ever in any place in Costa Rica. I'm from San José Costa Rica, and I wanted to take some friends from Ecuador, Cuba and Guatemala to meet the Pacific Coast. It was great. The view was magnifictent, and the place was really beautiful. Also, Randy and Claudia were the greatest hosts ever. They took really good care of us, recommended a lot of places to visit, didn't mind the noise we did at night, and personally took us around to get to know the place. The only thing you may complaint about is that you need a long drive to get there, and the road isn't that nice either if you have a low car, but once you arrive, I promise you'll have a magnificent time.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
14! That is how many people we had descend on this beautiful estate.

We have always wanted to take our children and grandchildren on once in a lifetime vacation. Randy and Claudia made sure that was exactly what we had. Randy had a bus waiting for us at the airport and arranged for us to have breakfast on our way to the casa.

Once we arrived at the casa we were welcomed like family by Randy and Claudia. The kids found their rooms and settled in. Randy was already helping us with the excursions and plans for the week. Then we just relaxed and the kids swam. This absolutely gorgeous place is so peaceful, yet exciting when the animals and birds come around. We even enjoyed looking at the exotic bugs on the property.

Randy and Claudia are very gracious hosts and went of their way to make sure all of us were having the best vacation. Even the little kids had swim toys to play with. Our adult kids and teenage grandkids had an adventure everyday always with Randy showing them the way. Shopping, surfing, zip lining, touring, meeting the locals and eating at local restaurants was amazing. Randy and Claudia made sure that our disabled grandson had everything he needed and that the excursion businesses new he was coming. He had a blast. Thank you.

Randy and Claudia also made arrangements for the cook to make us a traditional CR breakfast and dinner. They also had two chefs come to the house for an awesome evening dinner. The fruits we ate were delicious, even ones that we have never heard of before. A lot from right there on the property.

You can imagine with that many people things could get a little confusing and disorganized. Randy kept us all on task and ready to go when we needed to, always happy and smiling. Our stay at the casa was wonderful, relaxing, and enjoyable. My husband and I are so grateful to Randy and Claudia for making our dream come true and helping us give our children and grandchildren the time of their lives.

We miss you. God Bless you

FANTASTIC FAMILY ADVENTURE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 7 wanted to escape the frigid winter in NY and sought 100% sunshine and adventure in Costa Rica. We were looking for the "real deal" and we were not disappointed! Randy and Claudia were able to accommodate and attend to our gang that included the varying needs of toddlers to teenagers, and everyday we had an outdoor adventure and interacted with the local villagers. Although the house is a bumpy 30 minute trek up the mountain (fully disclosed in the site description), it is exactly what we were seeking: to be "away from it all" in a lush, beautiful, safe, quiet and spacious home. Randy and Claudia provided us with a vehicle, a lovely housekeeper who can cook for you if wish, horses, ATV's, personal guides and outdoor recreation, and even kindly spent time with our kiddos, who loved them! We even took a trip to the local school to visit their classroom and practice our Spanish! Having English speaking owners who know the "lay of the land" and are genuinely connected and invested in the local community is an invaluable asset to renting this home. Many blessings and peace to all who travel and visit this wonderful house!

You may ask....why 3 times to this location!! My answer would be why not? Everything is exactly as we need every time we go so why go anywhere else? Randy is there to organize whatever we need. The location is perfect and house is always tip top. This trip we did horseback riding, surfing, a trip to a private waterfall, lots of fun in the pool and on and on. Quit looking and just book this stay TODAY!!!

LIVING LARGE

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house. The pool is a nice size and had a great view. It was clean, spacious and quite comfortable. We loved the little extra touches, spare sunglasses, swim goggles, sunscreen. Randy is a fantastic host who worked hard to insure we were comfortable and that our time in CR was well spent. He arranged a chef for us, a private guide for Manual Antonio National Park, aided us with our flat tire, gave our 10 year old ATV ride, got our 14 year old extra horse rides. It is a 30 minute drive up a bumpy hill (we had read that in other reviews, and it's true). Over all, it is a fabulous place! We had loads of fun here!

FABULOUS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a luxury home with top of the line living. It was a luxurious home with quality views and beautiful pool, furniture, and amenities. The drive from San Jose was beautiful well worth the trip. The excursions we went on were great. Randy was so great for all our excursions and needs. We went for hikes, jet skiing, a beautiful boat ride where we snorkeled and swam. The canopy tour was amazing and it just 5 minutes down the road. Everyone is so friendly. The pool was wonderful to jump right out the back door and swim in. The house on all the acreage was great for hiking and exploring. We are looking into building a home of our own on one of the already established sites. The jungle atmosphere is so peaceful and if you want the busy street life it is just right down the road. We went with another couple who also had their own suite with full bathroom and loved the views, peacefulness, and the idea of not being in a hotel, but a great home of your own. This place is great for a big group, quite getaway, or just a go to home for anyone. I loved the vacation and would go back anytime. Costa Rica is so nice and the food is great.
