About Dan Parkins

I'm currently a Washington D.C. area resident, but originally from Costa Rica. It's been at the top of my bucket list to eventually return home to this beautiful and eco-tourism country where they live and breathe Pura Vida. I moved to the U.S. as a young child with my family, but I’ve always known that someday I’d return.

Dan Parkins purchased this House in 2014

Why Dan Parkins chose Bejuco

I love Costa Rica and want to share the experience of this beautiful country with others. Casa Marcelo is situated in the Costa Del Sol community, within walking distance to Playa Bejuco, a blue flag designated beach. From the property, you can walk to the brilliantly clean, black sand beach, lounge in the backyard pool, or mingle with other residents in the community pools and other common areas. Costa Del Sol is a safe gated community located in the central pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is just 200 meters away from the beach which is a nice place to practice surfing or just working out your tan. The place is surrounded by forest and lots of nature amenities like Lapas (macaws), and other exotics birds which make Costa del Sol the right place to stay while you are in holiday.

What makes this House unique

The unique benefits of Casa Marcelo are not only due to its location, but also the style of the home. Where else can you harvest Star Fruit, limes, bananas, and other exotic fruits from the neighborhood trees? To the south you are only about 40 minutes from beautiful Manuel Antonio rain forest. To the north, only a 30 minute drive separates you from the vibrant Jaco nightlife and great surfing beaches of Hermosa. Synonymous with relaxation, the airy and open beach house plan is designed to take advantage of the abundant sunshine, sea breezes, and warm climate. Every room of the house is blessed with large ceiling fans. An open floor plan also allows for a pleasant breezeway that diminishes the need to use the available air conditioning.

                                                                        Amy Z.

                                                                        Very clean! Used both the house pool and large complex pool daily. Unbelievably beautiful landscaping and gardens. Saw macaws several times. Loved that they had beach chairs to use at Playa Bejuco (which is a beautiful, quiet beach). We lived in the hammock! Only bummer is that you need to budget for AC use and as a short person (5'2") it was difficult to reach things in a kitchen designed for someone tall. Lots of great day trips like rafting, Dominical, Jaco, Carara National Park and deep sea fishing.

                                                                        Wonderful vacation

                                                                        The house was exactly as pictured. Having the pool in the backyard was great! We enjoyed being able to prepare our own meals. The neighbors were wonderful. We got to know several of them during our stay, and one neighbor brought us some fresh bananas one morning. Yum! The neighborhood is very safe and secure.

                                                                        The beach is a short drive or walk away, and it is beautiful. Most days we pretty much had the beach to ourselves.

In an effort to do our part in keeping the country powered with almost 100% renewable energy, we encourage the reasonable consumption of air conditioning. As such, we encourage renters to reduce their carbon footprint by charging separately for electricity. The current rate is $0.27/KWH and usage is based on readings from on premise meters. You have the option of leaving the electricity fee with the property manager or having it taken out of your security deposit (recommended). PROPERTY MANAGER: The property manager will ensure your access, provide contact information and answer any questions on using the facilities as well as suggestions for dining and other leisure activities. CHEF SERVICES: Ask me about private chef services. This additional service includes your own chef to prepare delicious sweet and savory local dishes. For pricing and availability, please let us know well in advance.
