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.

Great place for family beach trip!
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.
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.
Great home, gated community, walk to water about 30mins from jaco.
Great house and place.
Great place! Dan is a great host, he communicated with us on all the details and even gave us easy directions. House is wonderful. Located in a gated community with access to two pools and easy walk to the beach. There are close by options for food and adventures. You can't go wrong with this choice.
Was a wonderful stay in a beautiful home. Dan was very accommodating and attentive to our needs. Would highly recommend and stay again!
