About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This fantastic home is one of only a few beach front homes available in Esterillos Oeste. The spacious living area offers couples, groups, or families plenty of room to entertain. The full patio and deck looks out to the Esterillos Oeste beach directly in front of this spectacular home. The three bedrooms are all on the second floor with balconies off of each room overlooking the beach.

The spacious deck offers a private pool for cooling off after an afternoon of surfing, shelling, or just walking on the spectacular beach. The beach in Esterillos Oeste offers world class surfing, boogie boarding, and swimming. You can literally walk for miles in both directions on the beach. The west end of the village offers a unique lava reef visible at low tide and host the famous mermaid statue.

About Dave and Kate Treadway

We live in Florida where we love the ocean and the beaches. Our entire family is very active in sports and we love surfing, photography, and like most families keep very busy. Our vacation home in Costa Rica is our escape from this rat race we all call life.

Dave and Kate Treadway purchased this house in 2005

Why Dave and Kate Treadway chose Puntarenas

Esterillos Oeste offers everything our family was looking for in a vacation home. Our only regret is that we do not get to spend more time at this beautiful property.

What makes this house unique

Our family is very active and enjoys surfing and the outdoors. Esterillos Oeste is simply a fantastic location that offers something for everyone in our family at any time of the day. The wildlife is spectacular and Esterillos is a photographers paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We cannot say enough good things about the house we've staying in for the last 10 days, Tres Pochetes (check it out on VRBO #262954). It's very spacious with 3 bedrooms (all with Queen or King sized beds) and 4 full bathrooms. All rooms overlook the Pacific Ocean. There is literally fishing and surfing right outside your front door (well, back gate anyway). It is walking distance to the town center and a 4 Star restaurant (Los Almendros). Or, if you prefer to eat in, you have a fully furnished kitchen at your disposal and full-sized refrigerator. The property managers live less than a block away so any problems can be addressed immediately. (Dave and Kate have been amazing.). It really is the perfect house for a beach vacation.

great stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. the weather was perfect. the house was very comfortable, and had all the amenities of houses in the US (including A/C). the house is beachfront, and the plunge pool was very refreshing.

the location was perfect - Esterillos Oeste, while small, has everything you need for an extended stay - variety of restaurants, small grocery store, fresh fruit, and the freshly caught fish.

not a bad drive from San Jose about 1-1/2 hours, and close to both Jaco and Manuel Antonio.

Both Kate and Dave were very accommodating to every request we made. If we return to Costa Rica, we would certainly consider staying here again.

Beautiful Home On The Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 friends recently stayed two weeks at this property. It was everything we hoped for and more. Steps to the beach & ocean and a small pool for cooling off if the ocean is a bit rough. The house has three large bedrooms, all with king beds, and 4 bathrooms. A laundry room with easy to operate washer & dryer is very convenient. Walking distance to several nice restaurants, most notably, Los Almendros, which has different specials every night and a wonderful wait staff, including the lovely owner Karen. We would definitely stay at this home again the next time we travel to Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica. Thanks to our wonderful on-site hosts, Kate & Dave, for their prompt attention to our needs.

Exactly what we wanted...

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about how much we loved our stay, only problem , wanted to stay longer. The house is excellently stocked , there was not one thing we didnot have! The area is awesome , private & beautiful , the locals are very friendly . Was able to buy fish right out of the boat from the neighbor fisherman.. Will definitely be back and recommend it to all age groups we even brought our little dog and she was very welcomed . Dave & Kate made everything so easy , met us at the local grocery , took us to the house & made sure everything worked and that we were comfortable . On the day we left Dave came to see us off and lock up so we didn't have to bother with all the security. The house was clean , safe and well furnished ... Thanks

Great place and a great host!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as expected but Dave exceeded expectations. The place was clean, things operated well and it is beautifully situated on the beach. Dave was VERY flexible with our scheduling issues, arranged for fishing with a local fishermen and even gave me a ride to Jaco so I could unexpectedly pick up my rental car. Quaint town with a couple great places to eat. If we ever go back to this area of Costa Rica, this is the place we will stay!

Beachfront Home

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a place far away from tourists. This is it. The house is on the beach as advertised and the only obstruction of the view is a couple of palm trees. We spent hours sitting on the private patio watching the macaws in the almond trees. Be careful they may drop those almonds on your head. Huge flocks of parrots settle in at dusk making a lot of noise. Dave and Kate are the perfect host and a true asset to the owners of this property. They answered our questions immediately from the first inquiry and checked on us during our stay. We even had dinner with them. As small as this little town is you will not lack anything. There is a great restaurant just a few steps away and the local store just a short walk around the corner. The nearest bank is a short drive to Jaco. You will need to rent a car. The only thing we would advise is not to leave the house lights on at night. The bugs will come. That is the only reason this beautiful house with the perfect location does not receive 5 stars. However that is no fault of Dave and Kate. We stayed here on our honeymoon and hope to visit again. I'll say again Esterillos Oeste is a private location and if you are looking for a constant night life, look elsewhere. However we were most grateful to find this gem.

Had a very relaxed time

  • 5 of 5

I came down to this nice place with my Girlfriend and her 2 teenaged kids and we had a great time. The house is well appointed and in a great location. In the mornings we could get deliveries of eggs, bread and sometimes a local fisherman named Cesar would come by with his catch and is available to take you out fishing as well. If you want to go fishing I recommend bringing gear as Rapalas and good rods are near impossible to find.

The surfing was good and restaurants are walking distance. The house is on the beach right on a surf break. David is nice and easy to deal with. We left feeling like we will be back again. Pura Vida!
