Property description

Imagine this...you are sitting in the jungle, the trees are huge, towering above you, the forest is alive with the chatter of birds and insects, big blue butterflies glide lazily around you. The air is damp and smells like the earth after a good rain. You are connected to the nature around you, at peace...tranquil!

This is how you will feel when you stay at Casa Pericos (House of Parrots). A wonderful tropical two story A-frame home nestled among the mango, papaya and coconut palms on a hillside overlooking Carrillo Bay. Sitting on the covered front deck surrounded by 2.5 acres of tropical splendor, you are alone with the birds, butterflies, iguanas and howler monkeys!

Although Casa Pericos is very private and secluded, it is a mere 5-10 minute walk downhill to Carrillo Beach. This is one spectacular white sand beach lined with coconut palms and warm, gentle surf and untouched by any buildings whatsoever, acclaimed by the guidebooks to be the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica.


Your Own Beach Paradise - Playa Carrillo: You are one with nature. Although Casa Pericos is very private, it is a mere 5-10 minute walk to Carrillo Beach. This is one spectacular white sand beach lined with coconut palms and warm, gentle surf and untouched by any buildings whatsoever. The guidebooks say it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The 3 kilometer long crescent beach is protected by a coral reef which keeps the waves small and is a great beach for families with children. It is a popular beach for surfing, boogie boarding, kayaking, sunbathing, swimming and relaxing. It is also the place to be when the sun sets over Carrillo Bay and the Pacific Ocean. A brilliant, magical experience!


Become One with Nature's Tropical Creatures: From the large covered deck and patio overlooking the beach, you can observe flocks of parrots (yellow naped amazons and smaller orange fronted parakeets), motmots, trogons, kiskadees and an array of different birds flying by at any given moment. In the mangroves below the crescendo of birds, frogs, crickets and other creatures is quite melodious. At night you can sit and watch the bats zipping around your head, devouring the unsuspecting insects, see the geckos scampering after moths and chirping loudly for mates, and in the distance watch the blinking lights of the fire flies. The longer you sit the louder everything becomes!


Food, Shopping, Local Activities: Hungry? A 10 minute walk up the hill and you're in the center of town. A quaint little fishing village which hosts several good restaurants and three little grocery/liquor stores plus a mini-golf. For something a little more happening take a 10 minute local bus or cab ride into Samara where you will find several waterfront restaurants, water sport rentals, three internet cafes, a bank with ATM, tourist shops, two surf schools, and massage and language schools.
