This one bedroom villa is only steps away from the unspoiled beach of Playa Palo Seco. The villa is part of an upscale 23 acre vacation property that is beautifully landscaped and includes a well maintained pool and 24/7 security. 'Immaculate' is the best word to describe the property. If you enjoy comfort while communing with nature at a private beach that is unspoiled by development, watching monkeys travel the mangroves behind the condo on their way to the beach every day and unforgettable sunsets, this is the place for you. If you're looking for an affordable place to spend a few nights, weeks or months, this villa is perfect. The villa is located in an ideal location if you want to explore the Central Pacific!

About Steve Epperson
I live in Fort Lauderdale Florida. I'm not able to make it to Costa Rica as much as I like but do really enjoy helping others discover the beauty of Costa Rica.

Quiet and comfortable on the beach 5 minutes from Parrita
We stayed for 3 nights in the house in May and it was very comfortable and well appointed. During the day we kept the screened windows open and there was always a breeze to cool things down. At night we used the air conditioner set at 78 just to keep it cool enough to sleep. The internet was fast and reliable.
The grounds are well maintained and very clean. The gardeners are very helpful and friendly. The pool was warm and inviting. There were plenty of lawn chairs and a kitchen area available beside the pool.
The beach is within a couple of minutes walking distance. There is also a nice restaurant close by on the beach road.
Overall Villas Las Flores is a well managed and administered development. We plan to come back again and will recommend it to our friends and relatives.
Beautiful home, quiet area with nature all around
This property is a well maintained beautiful place. We loved that we could sit in the screened in porch and watch monkeys swing through the trees. Early in the morning we would have our coffee and listen to the birds singing in the trees. Two morning we were greeted with two Macaws screeching. We would walk down to the pool and spend time visiting with others staying there. People are very friendly. We could see and hear the ocean in the background. At night we would go to the beach and watch the sun go down, some morning we would walk the beach because it was so peaceful and beautiful.
Steve's villa was all we hoped for...beautiful, clean, comfortable and safe. Will return for sure!
While we have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and southern Mexico, we never selected Costa Rica always considering it a destination but then leaving it on our "Bucket List" for a later time. Now after spending two weeks at Steve's villa, we regret not visiting this beautiful place a long time ago. From the moment we arrived to the time we had to leave, our time there was one of the most enjoyable vacations we have ever spent. The first reason for this is Villas las Flores and Steve's home. On a short gravel road leading from the town of Parrita toward Playa Palo Seco, we found our "home away from home" in a small neighborhood of other villas nestled in a beautiful location near the beach. Patrick greeted us with our key after which we found the villa was perfect for the two of us...a great screened/windowed back patio where we were entertained daily with the presence of iguanas, butterflies, birds, and monkeys in the back yard. The villa, appointed with beautiful tweak wood cabinetry, furniture and ceilings, great kitchen, clean bathroom, handy washer, A/C for sleeping hours, and a big comfortable bed was perfect. A screened front porch became are perch for morning coffee as we greeted our new found friends and neighbors. The grounds in around all the villas were cared for daily and were absolutely beautiful. The swimming pool area was well maintained and inviting...a marvelous commons area and clean restrooms-a big plus for our next trip when our kids and grandkids come with us! The second reason we loved this place was because of the friendliness of both the local folks who maintained the area and others who either owned a villa or were vacationing there as well. Be prepared to meet some of the warmest and friendliest people in the world! The Ticos quickly became some of our most favor people on the planet...more than happy to help in anyway they can and more than willing to let you practice your Spanish, they're simply delightful. The third reason to stay at Steve's villa is its great location for traveling up and down the west coast on good highways with many sodas along the way serving the best fresh seafood you can find! We'll be back, with our family and will definitely stay at Steve's Villa las Flores.
Perfectly Secluded Getaway!
My girlfriend and I were very pleased with our stay here at Villa #4 in Villas las Flores. The owner was super helpful with our questions and checkin/checkout. The property is well manicured, and has a beautiful pool. It's also right next to the beach which is a huge plus! Each morning we would have our tea and coffee and watch the monkeys and iguanas in the backyard eating from the cashew tree. They provided a simple and free entertainment for us each morning.
The property has everything you will need: good wifi, hot water, air conditioning, towels, toiletries, dishes, cookware, etc. There is also a restaurant just around the corner for local food. And Manuel Antonio park is a short drive away if you'd like a jungle adventure. We saw sloths, monkeys, deer, and lots of birds in Manuel Antonio. Jaco is also a short drive away and provides more restaurants, shops, etc. But we were very happy just being in a relaxed location like Playo Palo Seco.
Great stay in Parrita
The property was exactly as promised. In the mornings we got to enjoy the cutest little monkeys playing in the backyard. Initially we had a hard time finding it but other than that it was fantastic! Great value for the cost!
The house had everything you might need for a weeklong stay. Good wi fi, nice pool, very good restaurant walking distance. Somewhat remote and at least half an hour drive to get anywhere. The beach is long, brown sand, no shade and absolutely not good for swimming even with a board provided. Steve is very good and accommodating host. I would think it's a good option if you don't mind driving to activities, or just want to relax by the pool and enjoy walking the beach.
Playa Palo Seco (also known as La Isla Palo Seco) is a relatively undiscovered beach 5 minutes from the working class town of Parrita. The beach is very private with black volcanic sand and large surfing waves and is perfect for endless walks or bike rides on the beach. The villa is located in an ideal location if you want to explore the Central Pacific on your own: its about 30 minutes to Quepos/Manuel Antonio & about 40 minutes to Jaco. Dominical is a little over an hour away now that the road from Quepos is completed.
