About the Property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

We started coming to Costa Rica around six years ago, on a surf trip. We loved it so much, and the surfing was so beautiful (for our entire family), and the people so warm, and the land and sea and sky so blissful, we searched for a house of our own, so we could come back over and over again. We found this house in the sweetest little town/village - Esterillos Oeste - which hasn't been overrun by tourism or development. The town boasts two sweet beachfront bar/restaurants. A great 'gourmet' restaurant. A little surf shop. And small market. The tourism is quite limited to those renting beach houses. And the locals (in the water, and out) are about the friendliest people in the world.

The house sits right on the sand. With palm trees out the front door. We've landscaped the place with lush gardens of ginger and orchids and palmettos. There are four huge bedrooms, some with kings, some with queens. Each one, air conditioned. Downstairs there is a full kitchen and a bar area as well as a sitting room with a day bed. There are three bathrooms in the big house. A dining room inside, and a picnic table dining area on the covered patio. Outside, in back is a beautiful pool with separate child wading pool. And a covered rancho with bar and bar-b-q.

One of the nicest parts of the house is the separate bungalow. Just far away and private enough. But still part of the villa. It's own little kitchen, bathroom and one bedroom suite. With sliding glass doors that open onto the pool area.

The whole house is beach friendly. Don't be afraid of tracking sand inside. It's all tile. White and brilliant Azul. We made the house as welcoming and relaxing as we could for our own family and friends. You and yours will love every minute you spend here. There is a local couple - Lydia and Marcos - who care for the house, gardening and cleaning. They are as beautiful as the house is.

Pura Vida. Pure Life. It lives at Casa del Suenos. (House of Dreams)

Car: Recommended

Surf with local greats or get lessons in the village. Fish with the local fisherman, or get aboard a sports charter. Swim in the ocean out the front door, or the in-ground pool in out the back. Laze in the shade of palm trees out in front, or on a chaise in the lush seclusion of the back yard. The separate bungalow makes an ideal 'getaway', or private quarters.

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Our family just finished spending a year, away from our home and work in New York, at this house in Esterillos Oeste. So we had time to do a lot of nice things to it. Lush planting surrounding the house. A new 'deck' on the pool. Rebuilding the lanai over the bar-b-q and bar. Art all over the place. And then practical things like a new water and washing system. Things that make the house feel more beautiful and work a little better. Meanwhile, the place holds the power of 'pura vida' - 'pure life' - that it inherits from the village it lives in. Oeste is just a little paradise. Touched just enough by civilization to have a couple cool beach bars with wondrous people, a little convenience store that doubles as a video rental store, a surf shack with a great teacher (and friend - Brett), and a terrific local restaurant called Alemendos (run by or friend Karen). This is paradise. Great folks. Great surfing. Great food. Great love. Great life. I can't wait until our kid goes off to college, just so we can move back. Stay now, before the house gets lived in full time again.
