                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: HI, we're George and Katrina Murdoch. We love to surf and soak in the sun so Costa Rica was a natural. We build and decorated this home ourselves. We loved it so much down there, we build two homes (check with us for more availabiities in our other home). We love sharing them with others. Katrina is from a very artistic family in Paris France so she enjoyed putting a lot of her natural flair in the decor. Because we have a large family (6 kids) a very busy lifestyle and lots of fun loving friends, we wanted a place that would be truly relaxing for families and large groups of friends. Our guests always say they got more than they expected, that's the way we like it! You will too.... Pura Vida, George and Katrina

                  Why the Owner Chose Esterillos:
                  We looked at a lot of locations and fell in love with the Del Pacifico Ranch because it is so pristine and calm, yet still close to both the busy towns of Quepos/Manuel Antonio and Jaco. Being the first buyer there, we were able to select a prime lot with the best views. The added bonus was the refreshing breezes which will keep you a few degrees cooler. Katrina fell in love with the European influence of the architectural design. She knew she would be able to let all her creativity and french taste fly there.... and she did! We hope you will enjoy the beauty, inside and out!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  By far, the BREATHTAKING ALL-AROUND VIEWS, the early morning bird shows with dozens of green parrots and wild ducks. The feeling of being on top of the word, yet so CLOSE TO THE BEACH, and minutes from restaurants and fun activities. There are also HORSES at the ranch which our guests get to ride into the rainforest and onto the beach. The POOL is a great place to stay cool. For the kids, the SOCCER FIELD and tree swing is an added bonus. SPACIOUS AND LIGHT rooms with TASTEFULL DECOR. THe best thing is that after a day filled with activities, you want to go back home because it is so beautiful there, inside and out. In fact, some guests said they were happy just staying there some days.
