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 Puntarenas

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.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property is very accommodating---he helped make the house childproof for our toddlers and whenever we had a question about something he was very quick to help us. The house and pool are beautiful. The kitchen is full of all the tools needed to prepare meals. Our family loved using the back porch table and chairs to eat all of our evening meals. The house is fairly close to a gorgeous beach, which had the most breathtaking sunsets in the timeframe we were there (January/February). The house is also just a short drive to a grocery store, gym, chiropractor, salon, and a pizza restaurant that makes the most delicious pizza ever! The gated community has the most wonderful, friendly security staff and two stunning pools that our toddlers enjoyed. We would recommend this property to anyone!!!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this property. We pretty much had everything we needed to enjoy this property and area. We each had our own clean space to sleep. The neighborhood was clean, quiet and relaxing. However, during our afternoon tanning/swimming sessions at the property we turned the music up to enjoy/celebrate being on vacation. The neighbors didn't seem to mind as we were courteous to only play loud music only during the afternoon. I highly recommend

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $500
Electricity Fee $.27/KWH $0

Did you know that Costa Rica is primarily hydro powered? 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).

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.

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.

Manager's Cancellation Policy
