My boyfriend and I have just returned from our stay at Marta and Douglas' jungle villa and everyday exceeded expectations. At first I was nervous as this was my first stay using Airbnb, but once we arrived I was blown away. Marta and Douglas were both readily available for any questions we had, and their jungle view was clean, had incredible views, and was in close proximity to many activities. We had a rental car and there was plenty of space for us to park, though we may not have needed the car because we were in walkable distance to the center of Quepos. As it is a small town, everyone knew where Casa Pargo was so it was easy to arrange alternate transportation when we needed it. There were several restaurants, tours, beaches, markets, and more, right near by, but we still had our privacy as the villa is on the outskirts of town. We saw monkeys, iguanas, birds, lizards, and more animals right at our window which was amazing. All in all we had an incredible time staying in the jungle villa, would absolutely recommend, and hope to one day stay again!

We stayed in the jungle villa and we couldn't be happier. The property was very nice! Marta was very nice and greeted us as soon as we arrived and provided us with a lot of info on where to eat and how to get there. The jungle villa had everything we needed with a great view of the marina and beach. Short walk to the town and a short drive to Manuel Antonio. The pool was very refreshing to jump into after a long day of walking. The bar was always full and a great addition to our experience. Saul was very polite and friendly. He even introduced us to some delicious tico fruit. We definietly recommend to stay here and look out for the monkeys in the mornings and afternoons! There are plenty of them. We want to thank Marta, Douglass and Saul for making our stay so wonderful!

A great little apartment overlooking Quepos and the Pacific Ocean. Marta was a very responsive host - she greeted us immediately upon arrival and she did a great job helping me coordinate transportation/activities. The location is just a 15 minute drive to Manuel Antonio National Park and the property is beautiful. Thanks for everything, Marta!

Marta's place is beautiful. The view is fantastic and the room is very cool. It was awesome seeing wildlife just outside the window. Understand however that because you are so close to the forest there a lot of noisy animals outside that can make it a bit hard to sleep occasionally. This is probably fairly common in most places you would stay at though. Otherwise it was a fantastic stay and one of our favorite Airbnb experiences.

The sunset each evening over the Marino was beautiful. The monkeys entertained us for sure. The pool was a great place to hang out in the hot weather!

This housing is very nice and cosy. Located on the border of Quepos, close from the jungle (you are able to see monkeys sometimes) with a perfect view on the ocean. Marta and Douglas are very great host and very helpful. We recommend it if you need a place in Quepos.

The property was beautiful and well placed -- a little difficult to get to at first but with a little direction from a neighbour we arrived. Marta was lovely and attentive -- giving us lots of helpful insight into the area both from a locals perspective and a tourists. Great view of the sunset! And lots of very active monkeys visited us each morning. Muchas gracias, Marta and Pargo!

Marta And Douglas User ProfileMarta And Douglas is a superhost.

Marta
I have a very outgoing personality and love to dance, cook and laugh. I enjoy meeting and helping people. I love to travel throughout my country and other countries as well. My husband Douglas and I have been married for 25 years and have two daughters, Bianca 23 and Sandy 18. Both girls attend the university in San Jose. Both Douglas and I were born and raised in Quepos and we think that with all of the lovely areas in Costa Rica, that the Quepos/Manuel Antonio are is the most beautiful.

Douglas
I like to dance and cook as well. Although I am not as outgoing as my wife, I do enjoy meeting other people. I have worked for the national electric company "ICE for 27 years as a maintenance supervisor. I like to travel and enjoy seeing other areas of our beautiful country. We slowly built on our property over the years and enjoy sharing it with others. Now with the pool and rancho completed I think we are finally finished.
