Property description

Near the end of a kilometer-long palm tree lined beachfront dirt road lies Paradise Found. This rustic beach house, less than two hours from the San Jose International Airport, invites you to unwind Costa Rican style. 

The two-story three bedroom home is steps away from the deserted sands of the Central Pacific Coast of Esterillos Este.  The vibrant jungle estuary borders the backyard. 

The downstairs boasts an open floorplan with fully equipped kitchen, eating area, lounge area and half bath.  A large wraparound covered porch serves as the perfect place to gather and/or dine alfresco.

The three roomy upper bedrooms, all open onto the upper lanai where guests can slip from their bedroom to relax in a rocking chair or hammock and enjoy spectacular ocean views or be mesmerized by the surf as it rolls along the shore.  

The bedrooms include:  a queen suite with private bath and hot shower,  a queen and full sized suite with private bath and hot shower, and a double bed suite with two double beds.  

There is a separate cabina for two with a full-size bed and half bathroom.  Special arrangements can be made to additionally rent this ‘owner’s unit’  with the main residence.

There is plenty of room to park your car on the property within the wooden gates for added peace of mind.

Wake up to the sounds of the surf and the calls of colorful birds. Enjoy spectacular sunrise and sunsets right from your front door. Walk the endless beach. Surf, boogie board, fish.  Rediscover nature.  All of this and more, away from the  commercialized tourist stops in Costa Rica.

Reconnect with your family or friends as you eat your meals together inside or outside on the covered porch (you just might be treated to an incredible lightning storm) or just relax with a book by the pool.  You may be lucky enough to view families of white faced monkeys leaping high overhead in the backyard. (Peeled bananas are a good enticement.)

After enjoying time in the pool or warm waters of the Pacific Ocean rinse off in one of two outdoor showers; one with an ocean view, the other with jungle views. 

On Esterillos Este Beach there are several restaurants within walking distance: from under a mile to a little over a mile stroll along the sand. Both fine and casual dining are available. There are a few small markets in the villages of Esterillos Oeste and Bejuco, about a 10 minute drive.  There are larger markets in Parrita, and Jaco located within a 20 minute drive on the paved highway.

Massages, canopy/ziplining, whitewater rafting Manuel Antonio National Park, Mangrove Monkey Tour, Sunset horseback riding, golf, fishing, hiking and more can all be found less than 45 minutes away.  

Billy, our onsite caretaker manages the property.  He has lived and traveled throughout Costa Rica for several years.  Combining his extensive knowledge of Costa Rica, along with his passion for traveling and all things adventurous, he is happy to share his knowledge and advice with you to ensure a wonderful and unforgettable Costa Rican vacation experience. Please allow him to answer any questions or assist you in making any tour or travel arrangements you may need.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband, my three children and I love the beach - from surfing, to relaxing with a good book. We live in the central coast of California and have enjoyed traveling all over the world. One of our favorite places is our simple home on the beach of this lovely stretch of Costa Rican sand!

Why the Owner Chose Esterillos:
We purchased our home on the beach after falling in love with Costa Rica. The weather, the people, the scenery, were all so beautiful...and this location on Este Esterillios felt like we had gone back to a purer, simpler time of life. Our family and friends from Germany to California have enjoyed spending many carefree hours here and we have been happy to share our 'rustic paradise' with people from all over the globe.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are looking to step back in time and reconnect with friends, family and nature, this is your place. The beach is generally secluded and we are off the beaten path of frenetic tourists. This is one of the few places you will be lucky enough to enjoy both breathtaking sunrises and stunning sunsets from the same brown sand beach!
