Perfection on the beach in Costa Rica!
My boyfriend and I just got back from our week long stay in Parrita, Costa Rica at Steve's villa and I couldn't wait to write a review about my amazing experience! Villa Las Flores is in a secluded, gorgeous part of the Pacific coast. It's about a 2 minute walk from the beach, Playa Palo Seco, and about a 10 minute drive from the small town of Parrita. The villa had everything we needed and might even be more beautiful than the pictures show. It was the perfect size for a romantic getaway. The villa has a perfect set up with a small screened in front porch, a bathroom, small kitchen, bedroom (with king sized bed or 2 twins) and an amazing back sun room to watch the wildlife. The AC in the bedroom was awesome-- we only really used it at night to keep cool while sleeping, otherwise the fans throughout the villa did the trick. We bought groceries in town and made some meals at the villa, but also ate out at the local restaurants quite often.
The grounds at Villa Las Flores are beautiful and very secure, with a gate, guards, and landscapers. Patrick, the manager of the property, was very helpful. Since we went in the green season, we felt like we had the place to ourselves! The wifi didn't work while we were there, but I think it was due to a strong thunder storm that came through on our first night. We went to CR to get away from work, so we were ok without the wifi. :) When we did need to send an email, the delicious restaurant, Las Chicarrones, next to the bridge in Parrita had free wifi. We took advantage of the beach, surfed, visited Manuel Antonio, Jaco, went to the Rainmaker forest, relaxed, read and watching the birds and monkeys that came right by our villa 3 times!
I highly recommend Villa Las Flores. Steve was so helpful, answered my many questions and gave great directions and advice. I hope to go back again!
