Why Mary Dierkes chose Los Pargos
We stumbled upon this point of land overlooking one of Costa Rica's best surf breaks and decided to build a family beach house on that very spot. The ocean views are 200 degrees, the surf pounding on volcanic shores, a short walk to great swimming, surfing in 85-degree water, endless sunshine, fish jumping, pelicans, shorebirds, mermaid pools, whale-watching, lush landscapes abound.
What makes this House unique
Off-the-beaten path solemnity of rural Costa Rica; the beauty and power of the ocean, the lushness of the tropical lowland landscape, the dynamic ebb and flow of the Playa Negra beach, the volcanic land, the generous and warm and lively spirit of the Costa Rican people, the dozens of different surf breaks within a walk or a drive, the fish, the food, the yoga, the beer, and a great group of neighbors, locals, ex-pats, and others.

Gorgeous beachfront home with beautiful views!
From the moment we stepped into the house and saw the stunning views from every window, our group of 10 friends were amazed at the beauty of our location. We were very happy with our choice and the description was just as in photos. Stunning views every morning and gorgeous sunsets every night. We loved the well appointed Casa Ohana - it was clean, spacious, comfortable and plenty of room for 5 couples. Beds were super comfy and having AC in the bedrooms was great. Didn't need it in the rest of house where you had awesome ocean breezes. Mary was very helpful and attentive when we had a question or couldn't figure out how to use the induction burners the first time :) Also helped all 10 of us schedule our in house massages! Ask Mary about this - its worth it! Mary also helped us get the "Fish truck" to stop at the house so we could pick out fresh tuna and mahi-mahi to cook on the grill at the house. The bakery truck also stopped by the same day with home baked breads and pastries to die for :)
The pool and beach were fantastic. Having delicious, fresh meals delivered by Jennifer from Cafe La Ventana was a highlight! Highly recommend this. Definitely have dinner at "Il Rustico" - amazing Italian food and super nice, friendly owner. Have to visit Lola's beach bar! Great horse back riding on beach with Guti Tours, Playa Avellanas - we love Andre and Papi!
If we are lucky enough to come back to Playa Negra we will definitely stay here again. Thanks for having us!
We all had a great stay. The pool and beach were fantastic. Having meals delivered was a great plan.
Amazing, relaxing home with beautiful views!!
Our entire group thoroughly enjoyed the property!! We had plenty of room for our 12 guests - all the kids ages 5-16 had plenty of space and activities to keep them happy and occupied from the pool to the ping pong table to the beach, while the adults had plenty of space and balconies to relax and enjoy the beautiful views and the many surfers. Thank you for sharing your amazing home!
Vacation in Paradise!
Stayed Jan 2019
Our family of ten adults (eight in their 20's) thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The views are STUNNING from every balcony, main living areas and master bedroom. The constant lulling sound of the waves crashing on the rocks is incredible, and the ocean and pool water are so tepid and clean that you won't want to come out! The architectural details are well thought-out and gorgeous. One of our favorite hangout places was the outdoor covered area with beautiful lighting, a bar area with frig, pingpong table, dining table, hammock and places to hang bathing suits and towels (well-stocked). Beautiful landscaping around pool and house that was regularly cleaned during our stay. It is and looks like a rental, meaning it needs some TLC. But it hardly took away from its beauty (better than the pics). Please remove the giant advertisement in the kitchen! Very tacky. The property owner/manager met us a few minutes after our arrival and spoke quite brusquely, to the point where everyone dispersed to different parts of the house. Fortunately, we did not need her services during the week and everything worked like clockwork. The maid and landscapers were so nice! The bedrooms have A/C (it was in the low 90's all week, though felt like 80's), though I enjoyed not having A/C in the main areas as it allowed the many doors to be wide open and to hear and feel the incredible ocean breezes.
Recommend: Michelle of All Fresh Catering, Hotel Playa Negra outdoor dining for dinner (it's right on the beach), Villa Deeveena (INCREDIBLE outdoor dining experience), 4WD SUV, La Vida Buena for A/C'd game watching and Italian/Costa Rican fare, Lola's at Avellanes Beach for beachside food and drinks, Gustavo Santana for surfing lessons, close walking distance to Piko Negro for outdoor pizza dining and beer, day visit to Tamarindo and SNUBA with Michael at Playa Flamingo. Pura Vida!!
Truly gorgeous location, beautiful home
This house did not disappoint! The views are spectacular, the home spacious, light , clean and very well equipped. Our entire family loved the pool, the beach, and the surfers among us were in heaven. View of the break at Playa Negra was a real treat. We appreciated the boogie boards, beach towels, and loads of books and games. We were very happy with this choice and the description was quite accurate. Highly recommend the catered food from La Ventana, which was a treat to have waiting at the end of a long travel day, very healthy, delicious and large portions!
