Casita means little house in Spanish, La Casita is a 2 story house with a kitchen, sitting area, full bath and a outside balcony with jungle views on the first floor. The upper floor has the bedroom, 2nd bath and outside balcony with great ocean views.
Our property is very private and secure, with a gated entrance. It sits on a hillside overlooking a lush green valley, with unbelievable sunset views over the ocean and marina. It is less than a 10 minute walk to central Quepos where you can find everything you need, food markets, restaurants, gift shops, clothing, taxi's, buses and more. You can visit our local farmers market every Friday and Saturday where you can buy fresh fruits, vegetables, home baked goods or a cold fresh coconut to drink. Quepos has it's own hospital and airport with numerous daily commuter flights.
You can jump into the pool to cool off, swing in a hammock under the large covered patio, or play a game of cards while you watch the boats go into and out of the harbor, or watch the monkey's play on one of their frequent visits.
The beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park and it's world famous beaches are only a short taxi or bus ride away.
My husband and I live on the property and are always available to help make your vacation a memorable one.

We absolutely loved our stay at Marta and Doug's. It was absolutely breathtaking scenery, the casita was clean, well equipped, and Marta made sure we had everything we needed. It is a little piece of heaven. The pool was immaculate and the perfect temperature. One of our favorite memories is the squirrel monkeys....we saw 25+ right off of our balcony. Incredible! Everyone was very friendly, there are additional guest houses with visitors who blended in and made our stay more interesting and enjoyable. We felt very safe in our casita, and will definitely make an effort to return.
What an excellent value! Perfect swimming pool, tidy, convenient kitchen, shower with a lovely "jungle view." Douglas and Marta knew that we would have our 2yo with us and a pack n play was already set up for us to use when we arrived.
Best things about the place:
Perfect size apartment for couple or couple + baby
Excellent air conditioning
Clean, fun pool
Convenient location if you have a car
Very safe parking if you have a car
Things to know about the casita:
(these aren't really minuses, but things we think would help other travelers):
Very steep climb up to the house - you'll probably need 4wd and if you have a manual transmission make sure you know how to use it!
The staircase is an open-style one - very pretty, but it made me nervous watching my toddler climb on it! Might be better for littler (less mobile) babies.
We were very pleased with our stay! Recommend especially for couples and those with little babies. :-)
Marta and Douglas are amazing hosts! They did everything they could to make our trip unforgettable, like booking tours for us or advising us about different activities and places. They even invited us to a lovely party with à few friends on our first day there! They are so welcoming and helpful!
The place itself is so beautiful! It's neet, charming and the view is incredible! You can watch the sunset from the pool or your balcony every night and never get bored. We also saw a LOT of monkeys there, probably as much (or more?) Than in the Manuel Antonio national park!!
We strongly recommand La Casa Pargo to every one and we would surely come back in the future!
Thank you Marta and Douglas!
Absolutely perfect stay! Everything was even better than the pictures. It is in a great area and a friendly environment. Marta and Douglas were very helpful hosts. Cute monkeys and iguanas visited us daily. There is so much to do in the area. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Costa Rica. Pura Vida!
Avoid the crowds and hassles in Manuel Antonio! This house is conveniently located in Quepos and is an easy walk to town or the picturesque local beach (not for swimming but very scenic), although it is a steep walk back up! That hillside location provides an amazing view. I highly recommend "La Casita". The deck on the first floor faces trees and gets great morning sun - and is a great place to view monkeys passing through in the morning. The second floor deck facing the water is great for afternoon sun and has a convenient counter to eat on or work on your laptop. The kitchen is very well-equipped. There are ceiling fans plus AC. The pool is a few steps away and is a great place to hang out. Douglas and Marta were great hosts.
Marta was absolutely amazing! Incredibly accommodating. It was everything we expected and more. She helped us book our tours, our room was clean and comfortable. The pool was clean and lovely. The bar was beautiful. Marta suggested the best places to go for ceviche or drinks, or whatever we wished for. She even drove us around and helped us find someone to unlock our car when we locked the keys in! Amazing property, amazing host.
A wonderful place with an amazing view! We really enjoyed our stay there with my husband, would definitely go back. Thank you Marta and Douglas!
The charm of Marta's place is the sundown view of the Pacific from the terrace on the hills and the energetic Marta herself. The rooms do need a little attention. However, We enjoyed coming back after a long day out, take a dip in the pool and watch the light change over the new harbor below. Marta willingly shares information and helps with bookings and took great effort in making the stay pleasurable for one in our party who decided to stay in Costa Rica for two more days, after the rest of us went back home.
Douglas and Marta were very hospitable. They gave a warm welcome, and offered to book any outings we were interested in. La Casita a great little house with an amazing view and feels very private. I recommend staying here if you plan to explore the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area but prefer to avoid the heavy tourist areas, and especially if you want to cook your own meals. We would definitely stay here again!
We absolutely LOVED staying with Marta and Douglas!!! Their place was by far our favorite experience in Costa Rica. In between Quepos and Manuel Antonio on top of a mountain with incredible views. Easy and cheap taxi to either town it was the perfect location! We staying in a 2 floor house which was clean and perfect for 2 people. The pool, bar area was wonderful too. Marta and Douglas are genuinely kind people who were extremely helpful and answered all our questions. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here, you won't regret it!
