Parrita House Rental Photos and Description

Fully Equipped Home, 3 + 1 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths , Private Pool, Sleeps 8

Bienvenido Welcome to Casa Treinta in Esterillos Estates.

This beautiful modern home is in a very private setting surrounded by foliage in a gated community and located in close proximity to the main gate. Casa Treinta is located about 1 mile, or minutes by car from many miles of beautiful uncrowded Playa Esterillos beaches and many quaint attractions. It is located very near to Esterillos Centro along the Pacific Coast highway, 20 minutes east of the tourist town of Jacó, and 25/35 minutes west of Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park.

This 2-story home has 2 master bedrooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) each with a King-size bed and another large bedroom upstairs with two double beds, plus a den downstairs with a comfortable Queen-size fold out couch. 8 can sleep comfortably. Each of the 3 bedrooms has an attached bathroom and walk-in closet. There is an additional half bathroom on the main floor. The house also features a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, and living room. Each of the seven rooms is individually air conditioned. There is a private lap pool a few step outside on the main floor.

Beaches are five minutes away and offer terrific surfing! Among the nearby attractions are rain forest, monkey and crocodile tours, zip-lining, sport fishing, shopping, entertainment for all ages and a variety of restaurants. You can go out and enjoy the sights or stay at the house and lounge by the pool! The house has all appliances including washer and dryer.

Hi-speed internet is available free of charge. Satellite TV and a DVD player are also included.

Non-smoking rules apply within the house, but is permitted on the pool deck away from vegetation and the adjacent forest of course. Pura Vida (pure life) from the owners of Casa Treinta.

About Doug Bulger/Ida Barnes

The home is co-owned by 2 residents of Calgary, Canada. We are the original owners of the house which was initially constructed 2008 and completed in 2014. We are listing it for renters when we are not at the home ourselves.

Doug Bulger/Ida Barnes purchased this house in 2008

Why Doug Bulger/Ida Barnes chose Puntarenas

We fell in love with the natural beauty of Costa Rica. The house is in an unspoiled area with beautiful beaches nearby. Wildlife can be spotted all around you! Three kinds of monkeys, toucans, etc. stop by from time-to-time.

What makes this house unique

Whether you want to go to attractions, go out to eat, partake in night life or just lounge around the private pool and not see a soul, this house is for you! We love being surrounded by nature but at the same time, close to amenities and fun places to go.

True Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

Our group of three couples (late 40’s) stayed at Casa Treinta for two weeks during the summer and had a fantastic time. Casa Treinta, and Costa Rica itself, exceeded our expectations.

We agree with the previous review in that the house itself was modern, clean, very spacious, well equipped in a quiet gated community. The pool was ideally situated to provide both sun and shaded access throughout the day. It was in a great location only 5 minutes to the Esterillos beach and an easy 20 min. drive to Jaco, where there are lots of restaurants and activities.

The owner and the managers of the property responded to our inquires quickly and provided excellent recommendations. They provided an initial supply of groceries and we simply reimbursed them when we arrived. We used their recommended car rental, Zuma, which provided pick and delivery to and from San Jose airport for a small fee, which allowed us to avoid a late night ~ 2hr. drive when we arrived.

I think their suggestions for activities (eg. Manuel Antonio National Park, Rainforest Zipline, ) and restaurants (eg. Villa Caletas for sunset amphitheater, El Avion) is really what helped us truly experience Costa Rica.

The only negatives I can think of is that the power did blink on a couple of occasions (so keep flashlights handy) and it can get hot by the pool with little in the way of a breeze due to its sheltered location.

Overall, we loved our stay and have recommended this place to friends and family.

Vacation review

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely wonderful vacation our family had in Costa Rica in April 2014. With 7 adults and no children the house was amazing. It is a very large home and everyone had their own space, but gathered for games or just to hang out by the pool. It was very clean, spacious & quiet in the gated community. The grounds were very well kept. The location of this home is very centrally located along the Pacific coastline and only about a 5 minute drive to the beach. The owner and the managers of the property were very easy to work with, and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone wanting to see that part of Costa Rica.

Beautiful House, Great Pool, Peace and Quiet - Perfect for Families!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 6 of my family members, including 2 small kids, over 4 days and it was great! The house is in the perfect location, a 5 minute drive to the beach, but with a pool this awesome, you won't want to leave the house. The house itself is well laid out, nice and quiet with lots of privacy and the furnishings are top notch. The development itself has good security and the employees are so nice!

With no neighbors around, if you're looking for peace and quiet and a nice home to relax with friends or family, this is definitely the place for you. We'll rent again for sure!
