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!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

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!!

We had a wonderful trip and immensely enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We toured the area near the house on an ATV and was taken to a beautiful waterfall. Our 17 year old grandsons enjoyed rappelling free m the top and jumping into the pool. We fed Scarlet Macaws peanuts. We went white water rafting and toured Manuel Antonio National Park with a guide and saw all kinds of wildlife including three different species of monkeys. Titi, whiter faced and Howling! An outstanding trip! What a great adventure we enjoyed as a family!!

Owner's Response: Often the Titi or squirrel monkeys will come past our house by the dozens! We are fortunate to be in an area where we are close to so many fun things to do!

This was truly a fabulous escape from reality!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter graduated high school this year, so we let her decide where we would take our family vacation. She is an avid lover of animals, nature and the environment, so she chose Costa Rica. At first we were hesitant, due to what we thought would be a very expensive trip. We needed a house because there are 6 of us, and a friend recommended VRBO. I knew we wanted to be in the Manuel Antonio area, so I began my search. This home appeared to be well within our budget, and was within a half hour of where we wanted to be. I made the reservation, and the owner was very accommodating. He made several suggestions on what to do, where to eat, shop, etc. And all were spot on!! The care takers of the home live in the same gated community, and always graciously answered my calls for information, and they had fabulous recomendations as well. The home is simply stunning! Huge open layout for family time, and the bedrooms had their own private bathrooms so you also had privacy. The kitchen was very modern, and had all the utensils you needed to prepare any meal you'd like, or even bake if you wanted to! The views from the balcony were absolutely gorgeous and the pool was a great way to cool off after the many hikes we took through the rain forests. I would highly recommend this property as an affordable way to live luxuriously during your visit to Costa Rica!!
