Los Pargos House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom 2 bath with Swimming Pool

SAME HOUSE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT, now with more services, from Jarrod and Meghan.

Just 200 meters walk to the snorkeling beach and 8-10 minutes walk to more beautiful PACIFIC BEACHES; relax in Mango Tango's unique riverfront retreat. From the main tree-top level gaze at animals enjoying the pristine riverfront. Enjoy Costa Rican coffee on the romantic master bedroom balcony over-looking the river; you will likely be joined by a monkey, parakeets, Iguana, red-tailed squirrels and Mapaches also enjoying breakfast. Dine, read or enjoy yoga on the outdoor covered patio surrounded by gardens. Walk a short distance in our gated community to Playa Negra, Sandy Beach, Playa Blanca and more for surfing, beach combing, dining, sunset drinks, and rejuvenating ocean views.

WHY IS PLAYA NEGRA AWESOME? You're probably looking at multiple locations in Costa Rica. If a selection of uncrowded beaches, wild-life, a laid-back 'time does not matter' atmosphere, no high rise buildings, no franchises, multiple surfing breaks and tranquility are on your vacation agenda; Playa Negra beach town is your place to kick back and smell the sea! In Playa Negra you can capture the way Costa Rica used to be! If you need a dose of a touristy town, its only half an hour drive to Tamarindo for shopping, Subway, our favorite huge US style grocery store the 'AutoMercado' and shop after shop of souvenirs. You can also go 40 minutes inland to visit Santa Cruz for a taste of an authentic Costa Rica mini city.

HOME INTERIOR LAYOUT: Tree-Top Casa Mango Tango is a 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom private home on a 7500SF lot that overlooks the river-front (don't worry, no more insects than anywhere else, but lots of extra wildlife!).

The downstairs queen bedroom and beautiful bathroom suite has a separate entrance and opens to the large covered patio and pool. All 3 bedrooms have tropical ceiling fans (2 have A/C units), quality MEMORY FOAM toppers on pillow top mattresses, custom made beds, and large locally made cedar armoires. Every bedroom offers attractive green views and all bedroom windows have curtains. The KITCHEN offers granite slab counters and modern appliances, a microwave and all the pots and utensils needed for cooking and serving. You'll find even matching dinnerware and wine glasses for setting a pretty table.

OUTSIDE enjoy the beautiful private POOL under the Guanacaste tree with Caribbean blue glass tile and granite (approximately 4' deep, with two 1.5 meter long in-pool benches + a tanning ledge for 2+ persons). There is also a travertine outdoor shower in our gated yard with private parking. The LAUNDRY room offers a surfboard rack, pool floats, new washer, dryer, a WeberQ BBQ and cooler for grocery trips.

HELP IS JUST AN EMAIL OR PHONE CALL: Our home is lovingly cared for and managed by Playa Negra Vacation Rentals who live within the community, the gardens and pool are cared for twice weekly during guest stays. You We are a phone call or email away to answer home questions or help with directions, or an trusted employee if we're away.

BEACHES: Through the gated ocean-front community, stroll 4 minutes on palm and hibiscus lined paths to a small secluded beach with snorkeling and 8-10 minutes walk to Playa Negra Reef Break, Sandy White Swimming Beach and Open-Air Restaurant and bar. It is a short 10 Minute Drive to Playa Avellanas North (White Sand, Reef/ Sand Surfing, Restaurant), and 15 minutes drive to Playa Junquillal South (Black Sand, Beach Break surfing, Great for Kids) or lots of other great beaches we'll share about too!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family of three loved our stay here. With so many choices we had a hard time deciding which property to book. Shortly after reserving Mango Tango I knew we picked the right one. The owners Sunshine and Cody go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. Sunshine sent us a ton of information on the area, her attention to detail is amazing. Cody actually took the time to draw us a map to a local park. The house itself is beautiful. When looking for a property were going back and forth about an ocean view. While this rental doesn't have one, it makes up for it with its privacy and lush landscape. It is also within close proximity to many beaches. You can hear the waves while sitting in the pool. Mango Tango is just as nice on the inside. The house has everything you could possibly need. Everything was well maintained and the furnishings were extremely nice. Sunshine is a very talented artist and interior decorator. I can't say anything negative about Mango Tango. The owners made our trip even better than I could have imagined.

A Dream come true!!!

  • 5 of 5

Really I felt in love with that house. Everything was so perfect! I am so sorry if I took so much time to write the review... Quite busy I am!!!! Here a day in my life at that time...

5:45 I waked up, open all the windows and make myself a capuccino.

The house is surrounded by trees so I didn't use the air con on day time.

6:30 I walked to the beach (so near, you can hear the waves!) and after a long walk on the beach I came back to MY, MY house ( ok...ok...I just rented for 10 days..).

7:30 Breakfast on the balcony

7:30 to 15:00: Either to the local grocery store (on foot) or work (yep...have to pay the bills...) from the dining table with all the windows open with the sound of the monkey crossing from tree to tree.

15:00:Time for a glass of wine in the swimming pool.

17:00: A massage therapist is available and trust me: your back pain will go away!

18:30 Light dinner with another glass of wine.... A necessity!!!

20:00: Time to go to bed, another hard day tomorrow is coming!!!...

Oups.. I forgot to tell you that sometime I had some visit... someone came for the garbages or to clean the pool on regular basis.

House was clean, everything was functional at the time. For a small fee, you can have someone to come and have the place clean on regular basic (every two day for me, I am in vacation after all!!!)

The owner was kind and the manager (Jarrod) was not only helpful but kind, respectful of your needs, and available.

Internet is working fine (important!!!)

The house on the first floor is very private since it has it's own bathroom. Two family could stay there with their privacy insured.

It's at the end of a road near a small river, so it's really, really quiet, private and I felt safe (woman travelling alone) because I was in a gated community.

Conclusion: I am very hard on places that don't deserve it but that house is a must to see and for your vacations and the photos are authentic WYSIWYG!!!

Hope your vacation will be has great has mine were!!!

To the owner:Please call me if you ever want to sell!!!!

Calm, nature and great house

  • 5 of 5

The presence of the wild forest and of a small river in the backyard of the villa, has permit us to see alot of beautiful birds, iguanas, howling monkeys, squirrels, etc. We have appreciated the pool who was cleaned, a must due to the heat, The kitchen was well equiped, the living-room and dining room very confortables. It takes a car to live there because it is a remote place. Great beaches near by.

Jarrod and Meaghan , the manager, were always there to helpfull us.

Above & Beyond Expectation

  • 5 of 5

This property is exceptional if you want the real feel of Costa Rica. My girlfriend booked this sight unseen. It was perfect for 3 couples for the week. It is well equipted with everything you need including condiments in the cupboards which is a bonus. You could get a way without a car but we saw more having one. If you like beaches almost to yourself this area is amazing. You could go to a different beach everyday. Sunsets amazing. We rented bikes from the surf shop which was fun. We booked in house massages which were the best of the best. We picked up supplies in Santa Cruz but could ride our bikes to the local grocery store for pretty much anything else we needed. Make sure you try the Pizza just out side the gate. The wraps at Jalepeno's are great as well. We drove to lots of other eating spots and every place was fabulous. People were great but you have to get used to Costa Rican time. Which means service can be a bit slower than we were used to but you do adjust. If you want to enjoy breakfast on your private patio and watch monkey's, iguanna's & birds this is for you. House & Pool were very clean. I will be going back to this location. Thank you Jarrod for your exceptional property management skills.
