About Gerald

Casa Blanca has an active Owner who personally oversaw all aspects of construction and personally chose the decor and furniture for the entire casa. Property Manager resides nearby and is on call 24/7 to assist our Guests.

Gerald purchased this house in 2010

Why Gerald chose Parrita

Where else could you have a majestic wild Macaw land on your terrace just 6 feet from where you are sitting or see a troop of Squirrel (Titi) monkeys or Capuchin monkeys in the canopy right next to the house? Our casa is very private with no neighbors within view. 24/7 security oversees the entire project allowing for ease of mind.

Gerald's Place

  • 5 of 5

The location is secluded, yet close to attractions. Spacious and well appointed, the pictures don't do the house justice. The sounds of the jungle and occasional visitors thrilled the kids who spent a lot of time in the pool. Could not have been better. Very highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. Because we have real privacy and no visible neighbors in our large project, we do get to see interesting animals, birds and butterflies who sometimes visit with curiosity quite close to us. They usually stay away from more crowded, populated home sites. The area around us is tropical forrest and not jungle. I smiled when you wrote about the kids being thrilled with some of the occasional animal sounds (like chattering monkeys and squaking birds). Guess they would make the same sounds in the jungle as they do in our surrounding forrest as they travel accross the visible canopy. Future guests should know that we do have paved, finished roads from the highway right to our front door. Hope you visit with us again in the near future. Gerald K., owner.

Awesome !

  • 5 of 5

The house is very large, the pool is very nice with children.

It should be noted that the house is a little isolated. It is located in a large complex, however it is very quiet and pleasant. You will not have the choice of having a car to get there.

Gerald is a very friendly host who will do anything to help you. We had a lot of hints about the house and the activities to do around.

We went around the boat with the monkeys, it was magical and I highly recommend it.

Wonderful Vacations in Esterillos!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house owned by a very friendly and customer oriented person. Gerald takes his job seriously providing lots of information! The house is neat, clean and well equipped a true home away. There’s no way to miss anything! Above this, pictures don’t do justice to the beautiful architecture and secluded surroundings. My family felt like we were the only people in miles though pretty safe as the house is within a gated community.

We visit about four to five beautiful beaches within minutes. We went to our favorite one Manuel Antonio National Park that is a little far but definitely worth the ride. We found everything we needed nearby from fresh groceries to five starts restaurants.

Gerald is so detailed oriented that he even reimbursed our damage deposit within a week.

No complains about this house and its owner. Would definitely come back.

Fantastic home in the Jungle!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying Gerald was such a pleasure to deal with and is a wealth of information! He provided us with many tips on beaches, restaurants and activities. We really appreciated how thorough he was and left no details out.

He had a fantastic couple check us in and they even checked on us which made us feel like we had our own Costa Rican family! Thank you Peggy and Greg.

The house is really lovely. The location was fantastic and we were dazzled nightly with a troop of monkeys who entertained us. No need for TV here. There is so much nature surrounding you that the sights and sounds are all you need. We really enjoyed our evening walks surrounding the property.

The beaches nearby are secluded and gorgeous. We made our way down to Manuel Antonio and enjoyed both the beach and the park. Fantastic. We also did an ATV tour as well as a zip line tour out of Jaco and both were awesome!

We would return to this property in a heartbeat. It was a great adventure and I cant say enough about Gerald, the owner.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your complimentary review. It is hard to keep everything on track from far away (Vermont- Costa Rica) but happy guests make it all worthwhile. We are not quite in the jungle yet. This will only happen if the project's maintenance crew let tthings get out of control!! So far so good and we all enjoy the privacy of me casa.

Great place to stay in Esterillos

  • 4 of 5

We had 3 adults and 3 kids in our group and this house was a great, comfortable place to stay. My kids loved the bunk bed room. The house is located about 10 to 15 minutes away from a very relaxed, quiet beach and there are plenty of little markets to stock up on essentials. The property manager met us at the closest gas station and led us to the house. The house is way back in a gated, security patrolled neighborhood that's a bit of a maze, we managed to take a wrong turn everytime we were coming or going. It's very secluded, which is really cool. You can't hear or see any other houses from this location.

Overall the house is very well maintained, luxurious, and a great place to stay.

First of all we want to say that the owner is a real gentleman and very kind always ready to help as well as The house manager David.

We were 6 in the house and ALL was perfect and really peaceful and exotic. Very secluded place ,,,,only monkeys can see you. The house was great, clean and very spaceful.

In one word A 5 stars at reasonable price. The service for any request was speady and kind from the manager and the owner. Many good scoop for activities were suggest and helpful. The house is located in a very safe area with very king guardian at the entrance. They make a continuous 24 hours 7 days safety check of the houses and make us feel in total security.

The house is very near from everything to do with a rental car around. The beach nearby is very secluded for miles and the waves are very good with 86 F temperature of the water. You can walk miles without seeing many people.

We have cross the Costa Rica from North to south and it is a best trip ever made for us .

The scoop for the rental car is really good as we were really well served by that.

The crocodile and the monkey boat were very special experiences .

The nature around the house and everywhere was charming .

Manuel Antonio national park was great and the advise to take a guide serves us a lot.

We already recommend to many friends!

Thanks for all Gerald!
