Arrange for a guided ATV tour to see the area around our property and the Rainmaker Nature Park Preserve. Plan a mangrove river fishing cruise and play with the white-faced monkeys. Book a day long deep sea fishing outing. Do not worry about sea sickness since these waters are the calmest in the Pacific. You can catch sailfish, marlin, dorado, or tuna. In shore, fight the mighty rooster fish or pick up a few spanish mackrel for dinner.

Try a guided white water rafting experience in the afternoon after a zip line jungle canopy tour or cable car ride in the morning. See the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park to hear and see the amazing howling monkeys! After all that you can arrange for a day of golf if you wish and still have time.

About Peter Sorensen

We are three friends that enjoy traveling, boating, fishing, good food and drink!

One partner is a funeral director, another a retired manager with a national electric utility, and the other an independent financial advisor.

Peter Sorensen purchased this house in 2011

Why Peter Sorensen chose Parrita

We came to Quepos in 2006 on a fishing trip. We had a great time and learned about the Las Palmas development just outside of town. After investigation we decided to purchase two lots and build a vacation/rental home.

What makes this house unique

Watch the squirrel monkeys and toucans as they pass by the house. In the morning take a quick drive to the nearby beach for a leisurely stroll, picking up a few 'sand dollars' to bring home with you. Stop at the quaint little beach restaurant for a nice lunch of fried tilapia and plantains or rice and beans. Learn more about the culture by visiting with the local people.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with children aged between 8 and 12. We all agreed we would come back in a heartbeat. This is a beautiful property up high along a gravel road. There are other properties along the road but, from the house, you don’t see them or hear them. It is like you are alone in the jungle. A major grocery store is only about 15 minutes away by car. The most beautiful, deserted beaches are about 40 minutes away. Manuel Antonio is 20 minutes, Nauyuca Falls about an hour.

The house is clean, well maintained and well stocked. There were plenty of dishes for the 8 of us. The pool was a great size for the 4 kids to play around in. We saw lots of coatis, squirrel monkeys, and morpho butterflies from our deck.

The road up is gravelly and has some steep grades. We rented a Toyota Rush (same class as the Dahaitsu) and it worked fine. Not the most powerful car but it didn’t have any troublewith the roads.

The only downside was that the power went out 3 times during our 9 day stay - once for over 6 hours. Apparently it happens on a quasi-weekly basis; we were unfortunate that it happened so frequently and for so long. However, there is a pool and lots of great dining in the area (Bert has some good suggestions) so it was only a slight inconvenience. After all, you’re in Costa Rica!

We wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our house. We are sorry about the power outages, but as you learned, this is a reoccurring problem in Costa Rica regardless of where you stay. We look forward having you come back!

This property worked out perfect for our family It was centrally located in the Central Valley area. Secluded, which we loved The house had everything we needed to fix most of our meals at home. Beds were very comfortable. Large sofa and plenty of space for everyone. I would recommend this property for large families or groups wanting a true rain forest experience.

A really fun get away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house and surroundings. Perfect for our 2 grandchildren. Sunsets beautiful and pool a lifesaver in the late afternoon. We took advantage of the beaches, horseback riding, and monkey tour. The wharf restaurants are fine, but the smaller restaurants in Quepos had some excellent seafood and ceviche. We did miss Bert and Aliyas info. We looked it all up ourselves, but a local's advice would have helped a lot. The pool could use a face lift, especially the broken tiles. All in all it was a nice property and well equipped.

Family Fun

The entire family though it was great.

The house is fully equipped and it has everything you need.

The kids loved the pool. The grownups enjoyed the grill and the relaxing area.

It was definitely the best choice.

Amazing home! Perfect location for exploring Costa Rica and coming home to pure tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days exploring the area surrounding Manuel Antonio. This house was perfect! Comfortably sleeps up to 8 people. Exactly as pictured! Fully equipped kitchen, very clean and bright.

Everything went smoothly, from reservation to check in and out. The caretakers are American and we're extremely helpful and fun to know! Peter sent a list of suggestions of things to see and do prior to our trip. He promptly answered all of my questions. I had many, since this was our first trip to Costa Rica!

You'll need a 4x4 to get up the road to the property. It was easy to get around the whole area. We saw monkeys, iguanas, beautiful birds and butterflies!

We were so sad to leave this beautiful house in the jungle and we will be back soon!! If you're considering a rental home in the area, this is the one!!
