La Isla Palo Seco villa description

Traveling about 3 miles from the friendly, working-class village of Parrita to head for the beach, you will pass a palm oil plantation, a large cattle and horse pasture, and the shrimp farm before reaching the beautiful community of Villas Las Flores. Villas Las Flores is a 23 acre community with 30 one-story villas. The grounds live up to the name with amazing landscaping and grooming. You can pick your own lemons, limes, mangos, observe an astounding variety of birds, or feed turtles at the lagoon. Our pool is never crowded, but always welcoming after a long day in the rainforest, Manuel Antonio or Carrera National Parks, surfing or beach combing nearby, or after returning from perhaps a longer visit to Monte Verde, Poas or Arenal Volcanos, or other special spots on the Pacific.

Our little rental villa (number 7) is an interior unit in a four-plex. We offer one bedroom with either a king or twin beds, full bath, and a great room which includes the kitchen, dining area, and comfortable seating for reading, relaxing, or watching the monkeys, coati, birds and iguanas in the mangrove behind us. Each room is air-conditioned.

Watch and listen to the Pacific Ocean from the front, and monkeys are nearly daily visitors in the back where you can observe and photograph them from the large windows or walk out and chat with them! Over the days, you will come to recognize them as individual little personalities!

This is a desirable unit because it is well-equipped for longer stays. The furniture is comfortable, and the decor is cheerful.

There is a manager on property at all times as well as a night guard, gardeners and house keepers. You will need a car if you want to travel much. Taxis are readily available, and there are a couple of little restaurants with in ab easy walk.

Villas Las Flores is ideally located for travelers who want to spend time enjoying the variety of adventures you can plan while in Costa Rica, but who want a relaxing place to unpack, relax and as the base for those outings. In one day or less, you can visit Manual Antonio, Volcano Poas. La Paz Waterfall Gardens, numerous zip lines, whitewater rafting, scuba diving, many beaches, (some calm, others with great surfing), rain forest, The Rain Maker, mangrove tours, and fishing tours......just a sample. It is great to return after one of these days and jump into the pool to relax and relive your adventure.

Couples who are able to stay 1-3 months in this area return often and find this a friendly, safe and affordable way to leave the Northern winters behind. We are willing to discuss discounts for out-of-season or longer rentals. Please contact us with any questions you have regarding the villa or the area.

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: We are a recently retired government worker and school counselor from Virginia (DC area). Having grown up in the West, we both have a love of nature, wildlife and the outdoors. We are also tired of winters! Our first visit to Costa Rica assured us that this friendly little country would offer us these comforts. Perhaps what impressed us most, though was the pride the locals have in their country. There is a sense of Pura Vida always. Our adult children are thrilled with our choice and also spend a lot of time at Villas Las Flores. We are just a 2 hour drive from Juan Santamaria Int'l Airport. It is a beautiful mountain drive.

                      Why La Isla Palo Seco:
                      By our third visit in search of our Costa Rica dream home, we were sure of what we wanted. That was peace and tranquility, to be able to hear and see the ocean, an unspoiled, secluded beach, beautiful, natural plant life, abundant wildlife, security in an established community and friendly people. After visiting many congested, commercial, 'touristy' prospects, a friend recommended the small, quiet Villas Las Flores. As soon as we drove through the gates, we knew that we had found what we were looking for! Our primary home at Villas Las FLores is a 2 bedroom 2 bath in which we spend 3-4 months a year. Later, we purchased the one-bedroom (#7, this listing). We have enjoyed staying in our compact unit whenever there has been a rental overlap with the larger one. Also, family and friends have enjoyed #7. We can promise you that it is quiet, clean, and very comfortable and accommodating. If you are looking for night-life, shopping, gambling, and crowds, this is not for you. (Though you can find them nearby). If you want to unwind, relax, enjoy pleasant company and nature, you can do no better. This is a real jewel and a great bargain on the Costa Rica vacation rental market.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      There is a sense of community at Villas Las Flores. Many of the homeowners spend a good deal of time here. There are other group activities for anyone interested...pizza parties, pot-luck dinners, shuffle board tournaments, etc. There is a cute little gazebo and is shared with the renters/owners of the other three units. Our location is perfect. We are between the surfing, tourist town of Jaco and the fishing seaport village of Quepos, and the beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park and its lovely white beaches. An easy day's drive will take you to Monte Verde, Arenal, Dominical and more. Many guests 'headquarter' at VLF and take overnight trips to other spots. The management of VLF is always available to help you with car rentals and activity plans. Rental bicycles are available at VLF. We often ride into Parrita for a meal or a little shopping. The road that runs along the beach is also a fun ride. If you walk the beach in the other direction, you will come to the mouth of the Parrita River as it flows into the ocean....good fishing! Palo Seco Beach(Playa) lays East and West, so from the same location you can watch the morning sunrise and the evening sunset. I have never seen more spectacular skies anywhere! You are in for a memorable treat.
