About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Casa Aloha is an exquisite custom built home located in a private gated community overlooking the jungle but just a few minutes to the beaches of Esterillos. Enjoy your morning coffee sitting out by the pool while watching the scarlet macaws, Toucans, Guans and an assortment of wildlife that incude Kodamondai, monkeys, and sloths. The quiet and traquil location is a favorite for everything that you came to Costa Rica to see, and it's right there at your front door. Our on site property manager will make sure that your experience at Casa Aloha brings only smiles. 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.


Each bedroom features a King Size bed with superior pillowtop mattresses for a comfortable slumber and private baths with views of the garden. There is a self inflating Queen-size air mattress available as well. The bedrooms are separate master suites located on opposite ends of the home. The home was lovingly decorated by the owners and you can see special touches throughout the house, including decorative baskets made completely from Royal Palm, driftwood, and shells found on the local beaches. Peaceful and completely private, this property is truly a wonderful place to spend your vacation.

Sunbathing, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, hiking and long walks on the beach are just a short drive away.

Esterillos is one of those hidden gems that many people describe as Hawaii 60 years ago.

Car: Recommended

The beaches of Esterillos are undeveloped and pristine. Known as one of the best surfing, bodyboarding and fishing beaches in costa rica, you will be amazed at the uncrowded expanse of beach covered with shells and driftwood. We rarely see another person on our morning walks. In the development there beautiful views at every turn. The wildlife is abundant and frequently monkeys will appear in our front yard. Toucans, Green Parrots and Aracari can be heard singing in the trees just above the house. We find ourselves spending the late afternoons watching for Scarlett Macaws as they return to the mountain after feeding in the Almendros trees at the beach.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: We moved from Hawaii several years ago and it we missed the lifestyle of living near the beach and seeing the Mountains. As artist we wanted to be closer to nature and away from commercial development. When we found this property we were amazed at how wonderful the wildlife blended in harmony with the surrounding homes. We wanted to be able to go to the beach for morning walks and then retreat into the privacy of a mountain home. Casa Aloha will amaze you with the combination of Ocean, Sky , Mountain, Birds and Wildlife all making for a 'Paradise Found'.

Why Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica:
The beaches of Esterillos are some of the best beaches in the country. We enjoy surfing and boogie boarding and the nature is just incredible. We truly believe that the developers were extremely careful not to disturb the natural environment in Costa Esterillos Estates. This means that everything we came to see in a rainforest is exactly as nature intended it to be. There are no distractions from the beauty of the mountains and the multiple panoramic ocean views are breathtaking at sunset. It has been a wonderful place for a retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The monkeys are right off the pool deck and are great entertainment. I get up at the crack of dawn to enjoy the toucans. I spend all day with them. I am missing them now. And then there is all the other wildlife, the iguanas, and the birding, the coati mundi, and more. It's such a great house! The garden brings us such joy as well as the views and the sunsets. 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.
