About Claudette Labrie

I’m a French Canadian living in Costa Rica for the last 20 years. I know all the better places to go and will make your trip unforgettable.

Claudette Labrie purchased this villa in 2006

Why Claudette Labrie chose Parrita

This place is close to the beach, the sounds of the waves can be heard from the house. It's very peaceful; macaws came once in a while, in the raining season they come every day. It's within half to 1 hour driving distance of our home to any activities.

What makes this villa unique

Good place for the tranquility and close for any activities, 5 minutes walking at the public transportation and 2 minutes walking to the beach.

great quiet place close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The backyard and pool area is gorgeous and the house was fine but we had a few issues. The lights wouldn't work in one of the bedrooms, there were a lot of ants in one of the showers, and some of the remotes for the air conditioners weren't working. However, The host is very sweet and helpful and none of those things had much affect on our stay.. If you're looking to get away from the city then this is the place for you. If you plan on getting out and doing excursions, bars, restaurants then I would recommend staying in Jaco. Also you must check out the beach road in Esterillos Oeste which just just a short drive away from Esterillos Centro.

Pure Vida! perfect place to rest in a quiet villag

  • 5 of 5

Location: quiet, local, very close to beach, 2 hour drive from San Jose airport, easy to find with app.

Apartment: nice size, clean, lighting in kitchen could be improved, beds are small (double or single beds only), apartment is cleaned twice a week

Garden: beautiful with two wonderful hamacs, nice pool, gazebo beside pool is nice

Owner provided good customer service at all times; booked our rental car with Adobe.

I would recommend this apartment if you are looking for a restful and quiet place.

Beach is amazing and you can walk forever or surf everyday. The water is warm like a beach.

Good restaurant 'Selva' and grocery store with air condition about 3 miles away.

Justin in Esterillos Oeste rents surfboards, 3 miles away. Very nice person.

Stayed for a week in Dec. Claudia is a very gracious host, with a wealth of local knowledge and a kind heart. Her place is very clean and well appointed, and she is always available for assistance, yet thoroughly respects her guests privacy. We were a family of five but felt like a family of six after adding Claudia to the list. Excellent host.

The house itself was great, and we all fit quite comfortably. The kitchen was a blessing as restaurants were a drive. The beach, however, was about a two minute walk away and was absolutely amazing. The tranquility of her property was unsurpassed. Thank you Claudia for providing us with a base for creating family memories that will last a lifetime. We hope to see you again soon.

Belle semaine de repos à la Villa Claudia

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une superbe semaine à la Villa Claudia. La plage, à 2 minutes de marche de l'appartement, était vraiment belle et tranquille. Nous étions complètement seuls. Parfait pour se reposer en famille. Merci à Mme. Labrie qui a su répondre à toutes nos questions et nous faire de bonnes recommandations durant notre séjour. La piscine, le coin BBQ et le splendide jardin ont contribué à rendre nos vacances inoubliables! Après avoir visité les parcs et lieux touristiques, la paix nous attendait à la Villa Claudette.

Atenas, Costa rica

our little get-away paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay here. The tranquillity, the gardens, and the beach are perfect for just a laid back, no hassle stay in the mid-Pacific zone. we have brought friends and family here - both from within an without CR. They rave because they would never know a place like this existed. Claudette is also the perfectly discreet host And the place is super clean and comfy. Highly recommend that you sneak away to here for a few days to get your soul back.

Whitehorse, Yukon Territory

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

What a treat it was to stay here. So clean and quiet and within 40 paces to the most expansive beach I have ever seen. Beautiful garden surrounds the fenced property, secured each night, that includes a pristine pool with it's own waterfall and fruit trees that are home to the beautiful Scarlet Macaws.The highway that runs north and south of the Pacific coast of Costa Rica is a stones throw from the villa, and there is public transportation at the end of the very short road. The owner is more than happy to accommodate your every need and request, from renting a car, to zip lining through the jungle to having a great meal seaside, or shots of tequila for pennies just down the road. I would highly recommend this property if your are the kind of person that wants to be central but has the desire to see more north or south.
