Esterillos Oeste, on the central coast, is a CHARMING fishing village with a great beach for SURFING as well as swimming in the NATURAL POOLS. This UNCROWDED location is conveniently located midpoint between the area's two touristic towns of Jaco & Manuel Antonio and is close to all the TOURS AND ACTIVITIES. The beautiful black sand beach at Playa Oeste has been voted one of the top 5 beaches in Costa Rica with GREAT SURF REED, sand bottom tide pools and hardly a soul! You can even walk towards the TURTLE SANCTUARY. The beach is lined with almond trees which provide shade and attract majestic McCaws. Esterillos Oeste is also famous for its mermaid statue bravely facing the surf. The village offers a quaint setting with local flavor, a couple RESTAURANTS, a GROCERY STORE.... Casa Tucana is in a GATED COMMUNITY on a large 1 ACRE CORNER LOT with privacy and valley views, monkeys…… The house is well equipped, its green design brings FRESHNESS throughout the day (AC available but hardly needed) and has a non chlorinated, SALT WATER POOL, a PING PONG TABLE (handmade Teak- also serves as outdoor dining table sits 14-16) , and a lovely LOWER GARDEN, with majestic King Palms.
The managers conveniently live next door and provide full concierge service. they can arrange for a COOK, MASSAGE SURF LESSONS, TOURS etc… and will also help you with CAR & CELL PHONE RENTAL.
About the owner: 10 years ago, we FELL IN LOVE with Costa Rica's wonderfully relaxing and colorful setting. Katrina is from Paris, France and George is from Lathbridge, Alberta. We reside in Santa Barbara, California. George is a surfer, and so are our six grown children (California won over Paris!) We live there 3-4 months out of the year and our oldest son Daniel and his Wife Chloe and their two kids now live full time in Costa RIca. They help take care of our homes and our guests. We wanted a FAMILY VACATION PLACE even NICER THAN SANTA BARBARA, CLOSE TO THE SURF and AS BEAUTIFUL ON THE INSIDE, as its surroundings.
Why the Owner Chose Hills of Esterillos, Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica:
Esterillos Oeste is a charming village with strong local flavor, and very peaceful atmosphere, unlike the more crowded touristy towns of Jaco and Quepos. The house is close to the beach (3/4 mile) and is part of a gated community. We are on the largest corner lot, very private and facing a beautiful fields. The close proximity to both Jaco and Manuel Antonio makes this location ideal for tourist who don't want to feel like they are tourists, but still want to experience all there is to do in the area. The best feature of Esterillos Oeste is its beautiful beach, Playa Oeste. You'll hardly see a soul, expect for a few fishermen, on its miles and miles of endless shores. THe surf is great, for both novice and expert surfers (we can give surf lessons) and if you want calmer waters, you can swim in the warm (82-85F) natural pools near the Sirena (Mermaid) statue on the Oeste Jetty. Morning walks on the beach will take you to the Turtle Sanctuary, and warm evening breezes will envelope you as you watch the sunset's mirrored reflection in the wet sand. This particular house is great because it is on a large lot (1 acre),, we built a Salt Water Pool to cool off, and landscaped the property all the way down to the majestic King Palms down below.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best thing is the BEACH! We particularly love Playa Oeste, it is great from all surfers, from beginners to experts, and fun for kids with it's natural pools with clean sand bottoms. (some as big as an olympic pool) Playa Oeste has been voted on of Costa Ricas TOP 5 Beaches! THe next best thing is the SALT WATER POOL. The water feels soft, you can open your eyes and no need to rinse afterwards. We also love doing Yoga on the ROOF TOP terrace or reading under the PALAPA BED by the pool.... The teak PING-PONG table is fun and practical too (dinner outside). The bottom of the property is a SECRET GARDEN, with magnificent mature King Palms. We see Monkeys there almost everyday. It is quiet and private and shady!
