Casa Somos Uno
Los Pargos, Costa Rica
Casa Somos Uno
With oceanfront views at their best, Casa Somos Uno sits just 25 steps from the Pacific Ocean and offers sensational vistas of shimmering blue waters and the Playa Negra coastline. This gorgeous four-bedroom home sits on 5000 square feet, and with no neighboring homes in sight, offers a true escape into tropical serenity.
Exuding exoticism and elegance, this home features a blend of giant windows, high teak wood ceilings, and Spanish tiles, creating a unique, open-air design that captures the natural beauty of Costa Rica. You’ll find most the main living spaces on the second floor, which features floor-to-ceiling windows that gaze out over ocean views to the east and majestic mountains to the west. The main living room offers easy access to the pool area and features polished tile floors and plenty of comfortable seating for you and your guests to enjoy. Bright colors characterize the space, emphasizing the beach-inspired ambiance.
From the living room, the layout extends into the state of the art kitchen, fully-equipped with everything a master chef could need to whip up something delicious! Like the rest of the home, much of the space is constructed with exotic woods that offer up a rustic sensibility, but stainless steel appliances and other high-end amenities ensure you have access to modern delights. Enjoy meals at the indoor wooden dining table or head out to the deck and dine as you overlook stunning ocean views.
On the upper level of the home, you’ll find two breathtaking master suites, each with a queen-sized bed, spacious bathrooms and private decks that offer sensational views of the sunset over the ocean at night. The third bedroom is found on the second level, also featuring a queen-sized bed. The fourth and final bedroom is on the lower level of the home, featuring two sets of bunk beds. The kids will love this space, as the room easily connects to an exciting game room, complete with a ping-pong table for a bit of friendly competition. The adults will love the game room as well, mixing up delicious cocktails at the wet bar as the day draws to a close.
Just off the second level of the home sits the spacious patio area, complete with a refreshing swimming pool and plenty of poolside seating. In keeping with the secluded aspects of the property, you’ll be completely surrounded by lush, tropical greenery, and share a 24-hour private guard service with the nine other homes in the same community. On leisurely afternoons, take advantage of the state of the art grill and have a casual, oceanfront barbecue as you bask in the sun. As the sun sinks down over the glittering ocean, move the party upstairs to the sky deck on the fourth level of the home, where you’ll enjoy sweeping, panoramic views of the coastline, unforgettable sunsets, and incredible star gazing.
If you’re looking for undisturbed, secluded beaches, a laidback culture, and peaceful tranquility, Playa Negra is perfect for you. Spend your days sunbathing on the small stretch of beach right outside your front door, or stroll five minutes down palm and hibiscus lined roads to the Playa Negra reef break, pristine white beaches, and a delicious open-air restaurant and bar. Just a short drive away you’ll find the lovely beaches of Avellanas, perfect for sunbathing or surfing, and Tamarindo is close by as well if you want to experience a bit more activity away from your personal beachfront oasis. When you’re in the mood for adventure, there’s plenty to be had, and the home’s wonderful property managers are more than happy to help you plan zip lining tours, horseback riding experiences, deep sea fishing charters, and so much more! You’re sure to get hungry after so much excitement, and Playa Negra offers plenty of delicious local restaurants to choose from, featuring everything from authentic cozy bars to five-star eateries.

Authentic Pura Vida
Costa Rica has extraordinary biodiversity. While there are many extravagant resorts, the best way to experience true pura vida is to stay locally - welcome to Casa Somos Uno! Located in Los Pargos and on the Playa Negra shoreline, and only 90 minutes from Liberia airport, this elegant home has all the amenities you need for a memorable experience in the Nicoya Peninsula - one of the 5 Blue Zones in the world. While the small village only has dirt roads, there are several quaint restaurants and shops available and only a 35 minute drive to Tamarindo and its beaches and restaurants. We took several "side tours" to the Guanacaste Peninsula including Las Catelinas as well as a day trip to Lake Arenal and the Arenal volcano area. Jarrod was easily accessible by Whats App. Highly recommend this Costa Rican experience! ”
Relax and enjoy the beaches and great weather
The home is very nice considering it's in a 3rd world country. It's in a gated community with 24/7 guards and seemed very safe to us. It's on the pacific ocean so a great view but the beach is very rocky. Five minutes walk in either direction there are beaches for swimming but not really sunbathing. The best beach we went to was Avellanas which is 5 minutes away by car. You can rent chairs and an umbrella there. Lola's is there as well which is a casual outdoor restaurant with good food and service. This area of the Nicoya Penninsula has lots of unpaved roads. The road leading to the gated community, to Lola's and to Tamarindo are unpaved. It took us by surprise but wasn't a big deal after we drove them a few times. If you rent a car get a small or large SUV to handle this. Also beware of car rental, it's even worse than Mexico, in the difference of the rate at booking and the extras they tack on at pick up. It was the most expensive car I've ever rented. We did a riverboat cruise to see the wildlife which was very nice, drove to Tamarindo for a day and went to a festival in Santa Cruz. Otherwise it was a beach vacation in 90 degree weather and lots of sunshine. The caretakers of the house, Jarrod and Meaghan, are terrific with great suggestions, quick response and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their suggestions and guidance made all the difference in the world. They can give you a better option for car rental that will avoid the unforeseen issues at the airport. Buy duty free alcohol when you arrive as it is much cheaper. US money is taken most everywhere but you can exchange for colones at the airport. It was a wonderful and memorable vacation. ”
