About Les Huey

Our family of 3 took a trip to Costa Rica in 2006. We explored all areas of the country and really liked the beach areas. We purchased the house in 2007 and have been able to visit frequently since then. We really enjoy the Pura Vida lifestyle Costa Rica has to offer. We also enjoy surfing Playa Bejuco and the nearby beaches offer some great waves.

Les Huey purchased this house in 2007

Why Les Huey chose Parrita

We explored much of Costa Rica before purchasing this house. Although there are so many beautiful areas of Costa Rica, we were attracted to this location because it is walking distance to the beach and central to other popular areas of the country. We can spend days poolside or at the beach, head to Playa Hermosa and Playa Jaco for shopping and food, take a day trip south to Manuel Antonio National Park, or even an overnight trip north to Tamarindo or Lake Arenal. There is also a wonderful sense of community between the full/part residents, tourists, and locals (Ticos) at Costa del Sol.

What makes this house unique

The open space complex is surrounded by nearby mangrove trees and a creek that attract a large variety of birds, including Maccaws, as well as white face monkeys. It is walking distance to the beach where you can go for morning walks, relax, surf, fish, and watch the sunset. There are plenty of activities at Playa Bejuco and nearby. You will surely enjoy the relaxing Pura Vida lifestyle Costa Rica has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of five. Kids loved the pool out back. Pauline was a few doors down and helped with anything we needed. The community is very clean and manicured and the nicest in town. The community pool was amazing and never crowded. The beach was further than we thought but it was so secluded we could drive down and park right by our beach chairs etc. we loved our trip to Costa Rica! Will definitely go again and we recommend costa del sol!

Wonderful!

We stayed here for 12 nights and loved it! Everything was as expected. The layout of the house with the pool is perfect for a family or a few couples. It felt very spacious. We would stay here again and recommend it! Thank you!

Definitely come back again!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time visiting Costa Rica and this house is just a perfect home away from home. The house is well kept inside and out and richly decorated. It’s in a quiet cul-de-sac and Mother Nature is your backyard. We were greeted every morning with the beautiful sounds of the birds and resident Iguanas soaking up the rays by the sidewalk (already missing that). If you wake up early enough, you could catch a few falcons just as the sun rises. We love the dining spot on the balcony and the sunset view is a must see. The pool is sparkling clean and perfect to cool down in. This time of the year, we had several thunderstorms but only enough to cool down the heat and catch several rainbows. The management team and the facility maintenance crew are attentive and very helpful. Their recommendations for dining and sightseeing are spot on. The house is within walking distance to an amazing beach. The town center right across the main highway has a small market and several great eating places, all in walking distance. Bejuco is a perfect mid-point between several amazing towns in both directions but just quiet enough to be away from the tourist buzz. The information provided by the owner was tremendously helpful and I highly recommend you reading it before the trip so you are well prepared. We love this trip and the accommodation, thank you for sharing your home with us.

Best trip and stay ever

  • 5 of 5

1st time in Costa Rica and took the gf and friends. I'm always cautious when going overseas and not knowing the country, people, accompanying, roads, food, etc.... This trip was awesome from day 1. We stayed in this beautiful rental home which was about 1.5hrs from airport. The drive was along the scenic coast and was breathtaking. The home has everything you can ask for, clean in and out, and the private complex has vip service. The house is 500 ft from the beach and near 3 beach cities that you can easily drive too. .. Overall I totally recommend this house and everything the Ticos have to offer.. Pura Vida!

Nice condo away from the hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

We spend 10 wonderful days in this condo with our family of 5. Plenty of space, well equipped kitchen, nice little pool to relax after a day of activities. The complex is located in a more rural area, which we liked. Therefore, in my opinion a car is a must. There is a public bus stop within a walking distance at the main road if you are inclined to travel this way. The near-by village of Parrita is about 12 km south where you can find a bank ATM, grocery stores, bakeries, drug store and more. Very friendly people. It is good if you can speak some Spanish because very few people we met spoke English. Thankfully our oldest daughter is fluent in Spanish. We made daily trips to Manuel Antonio, Dominical, Jaco without having to pay the premium rates for accommodation in these places. It was our first time in Costa Rica and we had a great time.

The owner of the condo has prepared a detailed written guide we found very handy. He is excellent with communicating via emails. Payment details were clearly stated and all went smoothly. The staff at the EcoVida were really friendly and promptly responded to our calls. Will definitely stay here again.

We Loved This House

  • 4 of 5

This house is well maintained, beautiful and just a short walk to a spectacular beach. We enjoyed our daily walks along the ocean, playing in the waves and watching the surfers. Neighbours in this community are very friendly and helpful. Because it is situated almost halfway between Jaco and Quepos, there are many activities to enjoy and all within an easy drive. Maxipalli grocery stores are easy to find and for those who like their barbeque, we found an excellent butcher shop in Quepos called the "Meat House." The owner is looking to purchase a new barbeque as the present one is very small. The weather is also worth mentioning. Sunny and hot with blue skies everyday! We were thankful for the private pool and used it frequently. The owner also provides a detailed information package which proved invaluable. We loved our stay and would re-book without hesitation.
