Esterillos villa description

Quaint beachfront villa with loads of character and atmosphere, shaded by almond trees and lullaby-ed by the front yard's ocean waves. Miles of quiet and clean sandy beaches for walking, biking, or running.

Rental manager, landscaper, cleaning help, massage and facial therapist, are all neighbors there to fulfill your needs and desires.


The villa is comfortably decorated and appointed : The villa is comfortably decorated and appointed. The focal point is the large veranda overlooking the beach and ocean. The perfect spot for morning coffee, meals and enjoying your favorite book.

Out the living room door in the back yard is a large covered rancho for BBQ and meal prep entertaining.

Each bedroom is private and appointed with ceiling fan and air conditioner. The bedrooms all have a queen size bed and the master has its own bathroom. Open your window for the ocean breeze and the sound of folding waves to sleep by.

The floor plan is an open one for group and family participation in all activities. The kitchen, counter bar, dining area and living room overlook the beach and ocean through large windows inviting the outside in.

Sunrise to Sunset: Start your day with fresh coconut milk from the palm trees and sunrise on the beach; and because the property is south facing, turn your chair around and grab a sun-downer in the evening for sunset from the same spot. There are plenty of activities to enjoy yourself in between or just relax with none at all.

The town of Esterillos Oeste is about a 10-minute walk up the beach or on the sandy road. There you will find a grocery store, about six restaurants and about five bars. Very friendly local people who depend on tourist visits and thus are genuinely accommodating and happy to see you.

Activities from the perfect base camp: When it comes to activities, there is something for everyone. Our perfect location provides a base camp to launch excursions short distances in any direction. Activities that are less than an hour away: Zip lines, nature hikes, monkey tours, boat or vehicular bird watching tours, waterfall tours, ATV tours, world class sport fishing - sail fish and tuna, surf fishing, casinos, Manuel Antonio National Park - Costa Rica's most visited park - spectacular, scuba diving, surfing - world class long and short board, many spots including out the front door - expert or beginner, running, walking, biking, horseback riding - mountains or beach or both, sand castle building, shell hunting, championship course golf, shopping - fine arts and clothes to gifts and fun beach wear, and don't forget the book on the beach and the naps in the hammock!

There are local surfboard rentals and surf lessons available.

                  Miles of pristine beach. Esterillos Oeste is a warm neighborly beach town on the Pacific Ocean where the jungle meets the sea. 14 miles south of the active beach town Jaco and 28 miles north of majestic Manuel Antonio National Park.

                  A mix of local and western residents creates a festive blend of hospitality where everyone is a welcomed local. The ocean provides world class long and short board surfing where friendly locals are rooting for you...

                  Miles and miles of beach for walking, running, horseback riding, or biking; where most of the time it is just you, the ocean, the sun, thoughts of gratitude and the occasional coconuts.

                  Eco-friendly activities locally or a short drive - zip- lines, horseback riding, surfing, ATV, jungle walks, monkey tours, waterfalls, sport fishing, golf, diving and much more. Pure Jungle and Ocean.

                  And do not miss the beach town flare of Jaco - sushi to steaks, gift shopping to fine art collectables; in a friendly Central American atmosphere.

                  Other Activities: Over the Christmas holidays, our south-facing beach enjoys both sunrise and sunset. Always warm, we are in bathing suits from first thing in the morning until dark and enjoy swimming and surfing both as the sun rises and sets. So many stars at night! Our beach is so smooth and flat -- ideal for running and bicycling -- it looks like a vast mirror at lower tides and is awesome just to walk on and collect seashells. We collect driftwood and enjoy bonfires on the beach any time of year. We enjoy the scarlet macaws who feast in the almond trees on the property and are sometimes blessed to see the white-faced monkeys in the back yard. The calls of the birds and the crash of the waves are peaceful and blissful. When company visits, our must-do activities include zip-lines, nature tours in Manuel Antonio, horseback riding, waterfall hiking, shopping in Jaco for wood treaures and clothing, as well as surf lessons.

                  Golf: Less than 25 minutes away in the Los Suenos Resort, La Iguana, is a challenging eighteen-hole championship golf course designed by Ted Robinson.
