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 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!
We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica, specifically in the apartment "Monkey Suite" in Quepos. These four weeks went by way too fast. It was a great location to stay and visit the Spanish language school in Manuel Antonio and many interesting places nearby. The apartment is well equipped, offering all you need for a relaxed vacation time. It is easy to walk down to the village and visit restaurants, stores and the market. Marta and Douglas were great hosts, assisting whenever we needed help or advice .
We miss the view of the ocean from the balcony and also the monkeys visiting us during breakfast or during the time we spent in the pool.
After our time in Quepos and Manuel Antonio we traveled 3 more weeks through other parts of this beautiful country. We very much apreciate the friendlyness of the Tico people.
We will come again.

Many thanks to Douglas & Marta, the place is amazing, we enjoyed our stay in the Monkey apartment, the view from the balcony is wonderful, the apart is clean, we found everything we needed, the kitchen is full. Thank you for adding a bed for our daughter. We will show all the photos & Video to our friends, we will speak about Quepos, about Manuel Antonio Park, the wonderful beach, the birds, the Monkeys and the way to reach the Monkey suite, we really like it. Many thanks for the informations you give to us, they helped. If we plan to visit Costa Rica in the future, we will be back for sure.
Marta and Douglass were excellent hosts. Their Monkey Suite offers great value. Marta can help book local excursions and provide good tips for the Manuel Antonio area.
Location is great as it is close to town, manuel antonio and the new marina.
My girlfriend and I recently stayed with Douglas and Marta in the "Monkey Suite" for three nights on our first trip to Costa Rica and it was our favorite place we stayed the whole trip. The room lived up to its name with daily monkey sightings right off our balcony and the pool area. It was a little tricky to find but we got their easily enough. There was a steep climb up to the house while walking but good exercise. There are stunning views and sunsets to be had from both the pool and balcony areas and the other guests were very friendly. Marta and Douglass also have two wonderful dogs Zeus and Beethoven! We will definitely be back! Nearby within walking distance is the marina with two good restaurants and the house is about a 10 minute walk to down town quepos and a 10 minute taxi ride to Manuel Antonio beaches and park for about $10. Everything was very convenient.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
