Property description

Occupying the best location in Esperanza Casa Sara offers you space and privacy in our three bedroom two bath palm and bougainvilla shaded house. Since we have two stories and all three large bedrooms are located upstairs, guests will have the opportunity to spread out over two floors, be private, read, enjoy the Caribbean view from the upper deck or bond with the family in our large dining room/kitchen. You can sit among the bougainvilla blossoms downstairs, too.
Park your rental jeep in the driveway alongside the house and hang your beach towels in the sunny backyard. We have a washer and dryer should you not choose the clothesline, a fully appointed six or more eat-in kitchen. and our house keeper/greeter whom you will have met by now, lives within view of our front door and can answer your questions, sell you a homemade flan, find a babysitter or rent you a crib.
When you can tear yourself away from Casa Sara take an easy walk down the Malecon for a wider view of Esperanza. Big sailboats, a cruise ship in for the day, four star restaurants such as El Canepo and the Block and many other choices. Easy walk to Sun Bay or drive or get a publico ride to other secluded beaches.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: You wake up because you hear a different noise. You walk out on the moonlit veranda and notice Orion is just overhead. A large cruise ship lit like a birthday cake is on the horizon. The sound you heard was a wild horse eating date palms from the neighbor’s tree, beautiful under the stars. You appreciate the air, soft and warm, caressing you as tradewinds blow at your light clothing. The night sky is so bright and so close you never want to go back to bed or inside ever again. The alpha dog across the street notices you. All the puppies are curled up in little heaps here and their across Paco’s moonlit yard. “Pinto” may bark at you as a stranger in paradise, or he may recognize you as a member of the pack, come back after a long absence. But don’t forget for now you probably are a stranger in paradise and you will see and hear things you never have before. The roosters will crow to make the sun rise, dogs with their superior senses will see that the cat walking down Calle Tintillos is actually a menacing chupacabre and they will cry out the alarm. Finally, you do go back to bed, maybe to hear another neighbor start his car to go work at the early shift at Morales “Super Disquento”. Later, as the warm sun streams in, bringing with it enticing smells from the bakery up the street, it is time to get up and go get fresh coffee and sweet rolls. At that moment you realize that you don’t know day from night and it doesn’t really matter. You are living in the real world of the stars, phases of the moon and tide, movement of the planets, and the rhythms of life of all things. You have been accepted in paradise. Stylish sterile air conditioned rooms hermetically sealed against everything except your own boredom, loneliness, cultural expectations can now be seen for what they are. A neurosis civilization has induced in you and now it is passed. Esperanza has healed you and you are living a new adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Esperanza:
Not to be a stranger in paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You are living in a small neighborhood. The morning starts with people getting to their jobs and children going to school. You will probably sleep late, eventually having a cup of coffee in a sunny spot on the bougainvilla draped veranda. You may walk up the street to get fresh bakery bread and sweet rolls. By now the neighborhood is empty and the world is yours, save for the mother hen and her chicks scratching in the yard, a family group of horses ambling down the street, a young lizard peeping out from under a conch shell. By noon all this changes and you will notice the delicious smells of home cooking. After enjoying their luncheon the neighbors will take a siesta, while you may decide to walk down to the Malecon, stopping at the local museum, perhaps shopping on your way to Sun Bay or any other gorgeous beach. In 2009 Sun Bay was voted the best beach in the Caribbean and has been the scene of a wedding or two. Coming home in the late afternoon you will discover salsa and other tropical sounds as Esperanza enjoys the local version of the cocktail hour. By eight thirty all will be silent. Your neighbors go to bed early. You may find yourself sitting on the veranda again, observing the Southern Cross in the night sky or walking under huge tropical stars to see how the fishing is going on the pier or having a drink in any one of a number of small charming bars and restaurants.
