The Space

When we were building the Monkey Suite we were almost finished with it and we still didn't know what to name it and than a few of our neighbors (monkeys) dropped by to see it and without saying a word to us, we knew what to name it. The Monkey Suite is a 1 bedroom apartment with 1 bath, kitchen and living room. It has great jungle and ocean views, with plenty of wildlife just outside of your windows.

If the Monkey Suite isn't available for your specific dates, please view our other 4 apartments that are spread out on the property. Simply click on our photograph and than look on the lower left side of the new page to see them.

When you stay at the "Monkey Suite" you will enjoy our pool and large covered rancho where you can sit back and relax. The rancho has a hammock, tables and chairs and a TV. It's the perfect place to have your breakfast or lunch as you watch the boats go in and out of the marina. It's also a great place to meet a few of our other guests from all around the world.

We are a short 10 minute drive to the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park with it's beautiful beaches and exotic wildlife. It is only a short walk to central Quepos, less than 10 minutes, where you will find local restaurants, clothing shops, gift stores, art gallery's, pharmacy's, groceries and almost anything else you might need. You can also visit our local farmers market every Friday and Saturday, where you can try some of our exotic fruits or home baked pastries, it's just a 5 minute walk from our villa and is located right on the oceans edge in front of the marina.

There are many interesting things to do during your stay. Surfing, canopy tours, sunset cruises, white water rafting, guided tours through the national park and so much more.

If you would like, we can provide private transportation to and from San Jose and help arrange all of your tours to help make your Costa Rica Vacation unforgettable.

My husband and I live on the property and are always available to help in any way we can.

  • We enjoyed our 3 days in the monkey suite while touring the area. Marta was very friendly and accommodating arranging taxis for us and we were able to do a couple loads of laundry which cost $14. Pretty good for laundry service in CR. The room is very private and located away from pool and rancho area for a more quite stay but still only a minute walk. The suite was large and very accommodating for the two of us. Thanks Marta!!

  • I just loved Marta and Douglas. They were very helpful in every aspect of our trip, from getting settled in, to exchanging money, to booking excursions, getting around town and even laundry. The accommodations were terrific. I always felt like I was welcome and at home. Saul, their help, was the absolute best. He always greeted you with a smile and just brightened your day. He was there to help with anything you needed, even a language lesson for each other. I can hardly wait to go back again.

  • My husband and I loved the Monkey Suite -- it is spacious for two people, has terrific views, and very good AC and fans. Best of all, we enjoyed being the guests of Marta and Douglas. They live on site at Casa Pargo and are extremely nice and always happy to help their guests with any questions or arrangements. Marta knows and can arrange all the best tours, transportation (including to and from San Jose), etc. It is also an advantage that everyone in Quepos seems to know them too. The apartment is on a really steep hill but that is manageable since the red taxis are easy to get, reliable, and not expensive. Just say "Casa Pargo" and they know where to go. Next time in Quepos/Manuel Antonio, we will certainly want to stay with Marta and Douglas again.

  • I had an amazing time staying with Marta and Douglas. I stayed 3 nights in the Monkey Suite, and they let me extend for an extra night in La Casita because I changed my plans for the rest of my trip.

    Marta was incredibly helpful with directions to their home from San Jose, had excursion booklets and local information available at my arrival, and she was welcoming and friendly. It was a great first time booking through airbnb and perfect for my first night arriving for a solo trip through Costa Rica.

    The property, the view, the pool...it's all wonderful. I highly recommend staying here.

  • We just returned from our trip to Costa Rica, and our stay with Marta and Douglas was easily one of the highlights. The room was exactly what we needed - they even went the extra step and put a single bed in the room to accommodate three of us.

    Marta went the extra mile and booked excursions for us ahead of time, and when one of us was injured she made sure to check in and offer any assistance needed. The location of the room is amazing. The view, especially at sunset, is breathtaking. The pool and the communal bar add to the warm, friendly environment.

    We are already planning on when we can get back and spend a full week there. Pura Vida indeed!

  • We stayed in the Money Suite. and it was everything Marta and Doulas said it would be. Nestled in the hills above the Quepos marina, it is a bonafide paradise. The swimming pool area is festive yet quiet and perfect for gazing at the landscape or just day dreaming.

    The apartment is comfortable and clean, and yes there really are monkeys swinging about the trees, and exotic birds that can be seen from the cozy balcony in the morning. We awoke to the sound of song birds that even drowned out the roosters that do crow as well.

    We took the Catamaran ride Marta suggested and it was really sublime. The passengers boarded as strangers, but after seeing dolphins playing, wondrous island cliffs, swimming in the warm sea with Manuel Antonio as a backdrop, and all this while hearing magical music, we all danced off as friends.

    I look forward to returning soon.

  • We stayed in the Monkey Suite for 11 days and the only thing wrong with our stay...we had to leave.  

    Marta and Douglas are superb hosts, providing information (and a tour of Quepos on arrival), a beautiful pool for swimming and walking distance from the marina, town and SUPER close to the fruit and veg market on Friday and Saturday.  

    The monkey suite is quiet, secluded and special, with the most incredible views.  The kitchen is great for cooking up a meal in or keeping a supply of fruit for smoothies.  Restaurants are easy to get to and most of the Taxi's make the trip back up the hill after a long day for a couple of dollars.

    This was our home.  Casa Pargo is all of the best parts of spending time with family.  

    Thank you for making our Quepos journey so amazing.

  • Had a great time! Marta is an amazing host. Probably one of the best places to watch the sunset in Costa Rica.

  • The hosts Marta and Douglas were very attentive and made sure I had a pleasant stay. My arrival flights were running late, and Marta kept in close contact to make sure I had transportation to the property. I could tell she genuinely and truly cared about her guests. I would highly recommend the property. The pictures and descriptions are very accurate. I had daily visitors from the monkey family's eating and passing through the property. Highly recommended!

  • We had a great stay at the Monkey Suite! We were so comfortable there that by the time we had to leave, we felt like we were leaving our home. We loved our cozy room, stocked kitchen, meals out on the balcony, and of course the pool with view. Very tranquilo place up on the mountain that makes you feel secluded but is close to it all. Very convenient location for walking to town and farmers market. Marta & Douglas are super nice and accommodating and I would highly recommend a stay with them!

Douglas- I have worked for the electric company for 27 years
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.
