Parrita House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Around 5:30 pm enjoy the breath taking Pacific Ocean sunset with your friends or family on our deck around the pool. Prepare or cater a delicious meal in our fully equipped kitchen with dining room. Turn on the flat screen satelite TV and relax on our huge curvy couch. Sleep comfortably in the bedrooms all with private baths. The master bedroom includes a king bed with master bath tub and separate shower facility. If you wish, use the washer/dryer machines for your clothing before you leave.

Arrange for a guided ATV tour to see the area around our property and the Rainmaker Nature Park Preserve. Plan a mangrove river fishing cruise and play with the white-faced monkeys. Book a day long deep sea fishing outing. Do not worry about sea sickness since these waters are the calmest in the Pacific. You can catch sailfish, marlin, dorado, or tuna. In shore, fight the mighty rooster fish or pick up a few spanish mackrel for dinner.

Try a guided white water rafting experience in the afternoon after a zip line jungle canopy tour or cable car ride in the morning. See the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park to hear and see the amazing howling monkeys! After all that you can arrange for a day of golf if you wish and still have time.

About Peter Sorensen

We are three friends that enjoy traveling, boating, fishing, good food and drink!

One partner is a funeral director, another a retired manager with a national electric utility, and the other an independent financial advisor.

Peter Sorensen purchased this house in 2011

Why Peter Sorensen chose Puntarenas

We came to Quepos in 2006 on a fishing trip. We had a great time and learned about the Las Palmas development just outside of town. After investigation we decided to purchase two lots and build a vacation/rental home.

What makes this house unique

Watch the squirrel monkeys and toucans as they pass by the house. In the morning take a quick drive to the nearby beach for a leisurely stroll, picking up a few 'sand dollars' to bring home with you. Stop at the quaint little beach restaurant for a nice lunch of fried tilapia and plantains or rice and beans. Learn more about the culture by visiting with the local people.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! My husband and I Rented this property for our 10 year anniversary. Huge space and very updated. The view is rain forest as far as you can look out and all around you. The price is very affordable for how much you get. The house manager Bert was fantastic. He is very friendly and gave us great tips! He set us up with some friends to go on a horseback ride to a very private waterfall. We were the only ones there! It was a great experience and very affordable! The drive back to the house definitely needs a four wheel drive vehicle. About 15 minute drive to Quepos and 20 minute drive to Manuel Antonio. I definitely recommend this house rental. Would be amazing for families or friends traveling together.

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about the house. The location is awesome and the view is beautiful. The house is very spacious, luxurious and has all the amenities. Even the drive to get there is adventurous. We loved being in the mountains where the air is pure and you're away from all the congestion of the major tourist cities like Manual Antonio. After spending most all of our days on adventures it was great to come back to the quiet house in the mountains at the end of the day and relax by the pool. It's only a short drive to some of the best restaurants in Manual Antonio (Emilio's and Cafe Melagro were our favorites). The caretaker Bert was great for recommendations of places and helping us find the house for the first time. A 4x4 vehicle is a must especially in the summer/rainy season as the house is in the mountains. We loved it and will absolutely be returning here for all of our future trips to Costa Rica!

Awesome House for Adventure Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic! its really spacious with the 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and new. The pool was great. The kitchen had everything you needed including all the little things that you don't normally get with a typical house rental. Our white water rafting, zip lining, 4 wheeling with a waterfall jump/ swim and mangrove monkey tours were just the best! I would 100% recommend hiring Tony, the maintenance guy, to do some driving, local guiding and provisioning/errand running for you. Tony's help was invaluable and he saved us money by getting locals pricing on the tours as well. Not to mention, we cried from laughing so hard from his stories. The house is a super home base from which you can create some awesome memories.

Beautiful and peaceful home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this house. We spent 5 nights there (4 adults and 2 kids) and enjoyed it a lot. The house was clean, comfortable and well equiped (except for the toilett paper, that we had to buy because there wasn't enough for the whole stay!). We loved that every one can have it's private bathroom, with a nice shower and hot water!!

The road that leads to the house is quite an adventure at the first time. I haven't realized that it is that far from the main road (almost 10 minutes on a dirty road). But if you want peace and calm, that is the perfect place. I wished the house was equiped with beach gear (chairs, umbrellas...) that we would have brought ourselves to Espadilla Beach, instead of renting it every day (20$US each day). It would have been a great extra to the place.

Berth, the caretaker, has been really good with us. We had a small issue with the pool and the AC that he promptly took car of. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of this area of Costa Rica.

Beautiful Secluded Home in Rainforest

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including 2 teen girls and my mother, enjoyed our week at this beautiful secluded air-conditioned rental home up in the hills of Costa Rica. A 4x4 is a MUST to get up the dirt/rocky hills, but we all thought that was part of the adventure. If you like to be right in the middle of all the action, then this is probably not for you, but my family loved it. We all enjoyed adventures each day in nearby Quepos/Manuel Antonio and then returned for a swim in the pool to watch the sunset before heading out again for dinner or making dinner at the house. It is at least a 15 minute trip to get to Quepos and about 5 minutes of it is on a dirt road through African Palm Trees. The home is located in a gated area, but you literally can't see another home from it. It has beautiful views and off to the far south, you can see the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The people that manage the home live nearby and were very helpful in getting us to the home and helping us locate good restaurants. As with all homes, there were a few very minor things that the owner needs to fix, but none of it was really a big deal. (The dishwasher ran loudly, there were some scratchy animal noises in the vents, and the wood around the pool needs to be replaced.) The home is very clean and there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Also, the owner, was very helpful and easy to work with via phone/email prior to our visit. We would definitely stay again. We heard about a good adventure even further up the mountain that we didn't get to try, but hear is good.

Our second visit was better than the first! The house has every amenity we could want. The view is amazing and being able to watch the sun set from the pool every night was a perfect finish to each day. If you are looking for a little adventure, this is an excelent option.
