About the property

big beautiful house on the beach

The house has an open floor plan, cathedral ceiling and windows everywhere. The full kitchen, dining and living areas, and two porches all face the ocean. There are also two (Jack & Jill) bedrooms downstairs that share a full bathroom, a nice little pool, outdoor shower and laundry room. Upstairs is a guest room with a queen bed and full bath. Another big room upstairs is our yoga studio, but can be used as a TV room, or for extra beds. The master bedroom suite is heaven. It has its own full bath, walk in closet, and balcony overlooking the beach. The sound of the ocean and a cool breeze are always coming thru the palms. Jaco is 29 minutes down the road

About gay shaw

We designed and built this house to enjoy life on the beach. It was completed in 2007. We and our two sons spent many happy days here, walking the beach and playing in the ocean, (Just be careful). The water is always warm, and clean and clear. No nasty rocks shells and seaweed. The surfing is excellent (but be careful). The neighbors are friendly.

gay shaw purchased this house in 2007

Why gay shaw chose Parrita

This is one of the nicest beaches I have ever been on.

Its a very friendly community, and CR is a great country for vacations.

There a few restaurants within walking distance on the beach, and we are only an hour from Manuel Antonio - a wonderful National Park.

What makes this house unique

caretaker, cooking, cleaning, babysitting and other services available upon request.

Best warm weather vacation spot ever !!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February in paradise . The house is gorgeous ... With the beautiful grounds and magnificent ocean views we felt right at home except warmer!

The pool was just what you needed to refresh morning , noon and night . We enjoyed the local community and restaurants ... The food was reliably fresh and delicious!

Our next door neighbors (caretakers) were so friendly and helpful . The yard and pool were tended to daily . A wonderful memory ! We definitely recommend this home . !!!! John and Sue

We stayed here in June of 2015 for 10 nights!! Wish I was still there!!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this house, location and beach. We are from Florida and can take the heat however, I will tell you it is HOT in Costa Rica in June! The bedrooms were all air-conditioned which was perfect and we all love the heat and sun but would have been unbearable without A/C in bedrooms. The house, yard and beach were beautiful, I mean beautiful. We took rod and reels to fish by the house but would not do that again, more of a hassle to take them as we caught nothing. Went to Quepos and Manuel Antonio and would recommend a rental car or 4 wheel drive. Went to the local rain forest too.. It was beautiful. This place is a surfers paradise to the north or south. Waves are incredible. The house is isolated a little but neighbors on both sides which I love isolation so that did not bother me. Whole sand dollars all over the ocean every morning we found them. There is a store up the road maybe 2-3 miles and a little restaurant you could practically walk to. :)

I hope to return to this same house someday, good lord willing. The owners were as nice as they could be in dealing with and answering all my questions. We did have a night guard "Manuel" and he was a gem!! We enjoyed his company and he did not intrude on us or bother us at all I never felt threatened or scared with or without him there but the Owners provided this type service. I highly recommend this house if you want peace and solitude and not the hustle and bustle of a city!! If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them. Hope to be there again.

your there
Car: recommended

Esterillios Este is a lovely little beach community with enough activity and amenities to be pleasant and comfortable without spoiling the natural surroundings.

There are a few small hotels with low key bars on the beach, and the houses and people who live there. The beach is huge, at low tide its a giant wading pool, never crowded or noisy.
