Car: Recommended

Esterillos Oeste is just a 1 and 1/2 hr. trip to the airport. It is 20 minutes from the city of Jaco which is a tourist haven with a casino, restaurants of all types, tour packages, shopping, bars, entertainment and an abundance of night life.

Just 1/2 hr. to the south is the famous Manuel Antonio National Park. Tour guides are available to show off an abundance of wildlife, flowers and trees. You can see two types of monkeys, sloths, turtles, and a variety of beautiful and colorful birds. You can hike thru the park on your own and its white sand beach is great for swimming and snorkeling.

Other activities near Casa Trasmallo include monkey tours, zip lines (some of the longest in the world), deep sea fishing boat rentals, horse back riding, snorkeling and diving tours, and jungle tours. ATVs are also available for rent in Jaco.

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Our brother and sister-in-law moved to Costa Rica about 11 years ago. They kept encouraging us to visit and finally, in 2012, we were able to come to Esterillos Oeste for 10 days. We have traveled to many countries and stayed in resorts. Nothing prepared us for the unforgettable experience of staying in this quaint fishing village! We walked to the beach, to the grocery store, to restaurants, and to local bars. We went zip lining, on a cruise to Tortuga Island, and horseback riding. The best, and most interesting, thing about our stay is that we did not want to go home. Period. We loved the people and the relaxed way of life. We loved the variety of things to do close by. We had never felt this way about any of our travel destinations before and we decided right then to make our goal to retire in this village! We live in Pennsylvania and started coming to Esterillos Oeste for a month during our coldest weather. We brought family and groups of friends to share this unique experience. Everyone had a wonderful time and plan to come back. Perhaps we caught the Pura Vida fever but we never wanted to be anywhere else!

Why Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica:
We had been looking at this home every time we came down for a visit. We loved the original features such as the arched shuttered windows. Casa Trasmallo had been owned by a famous writer from San Jose. He had been an ambassador to the United States and was an honorary Fellow at Columbia University. He brought his family to this beach home during the 1980's and after his death his family continued to use the house as a favorite getaway. It was named Trasmallo after the net which was used by local fishermen. We think of the name as a special type of net that brings people of all walks of life into its shelter.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I remember walking by this house one day and watched as children splashed in the pool, someone was cooking on the bar-b-que and a few were lazily swinging in hammocks under the rancho. I thought of my own family and I could see us all there enjoying our day. We loved the arches on the covered front porch and the shutters in the arched windows. What we loved the most was the serenity and beauty of the gardens and outdoor spaces. It seemed that everything about it said 'relax'. We knew this was the perfect place for us.
