Sergio Espinoza purchased this house in 2015

Why Sergio Espinoza chose Paquera

Always loved the area since a child I used to visit it a lot with my parents. It is an area still very untouched by development but close to ammenities or whatever you may need. It is very private, surrounded by nature, minutes away from many beaches, BREATHTAKING VIEWS of Tropical Forests, Gulf of Nicoya, Pacific Ocean, Islands and mountain ranges, fully equipped and deluxe finishings in my own vacation home on the top of a beautiful hill.

What makes this house unique

Amazing and Spectacular views from every room in the house. Almost 360 degrees of great views and a unique top of the world feeling when you are enjoying the views from our wide open Balconies.

We would stay here again.

  • 3 of 5

It was a beautiful house with an excellent pool. That being said, next time we would prepare ourselves better before arriving, It is a minimum 1 hour each way to a grocery for supplies. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must. The view and solitude are worth the drive. We are country folks from Kansas and understand that roads can be rough ... and these were! Once we were supplied with food, coffee and of course cervezas .. we were happy.

Wonderful honeymoon - wonderful memories!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our time at Ala Blanca Hills! The view was incredible, the house was very secluded, Raul was extremely helpful and kind, and our overall experience was just fantastic! We stayed for a week and a half on our honeymoon and we got to go horseback riding on the beach, ziplining through the jungle, and snorkeling at Tortuga Island! Not to mention we just enjoyed relaxing in the private pool and enjoying the gorgeous views. We highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone who wants to visit Costa Rica!

Beautiful view and house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful month in this property. Every day we saw different things from cane fields burning across the gulf to all the wildlife to a beautiful full moon over the water. This house is very central to many adventures. And the ferry to Puntarenas was easy, close and low cost to get to many more adventures. From this house we were able to see most of the Nicoya peninsula as well as across to Quepos and the Manuel Antonio Park with only day trips. Know when renting anywhere on this Peninsula you had best get a 4 wheel drive. We traded off our Toyota car soon after arrival for the most common rental, a Terios 4x4 which suited us and the roads much better. You can believe what you see in the pictures because some I took and gave them to Raul. Thanks for posting some of those.

Great house, location a bit out of the way

  • 4 of 5

We just spent the new year at the house. The house is really nice w/ great views and a fantastic pool. Great for a big group with lots of beds. There were a few issues with the house when we stayed but most were dealt with quickly (except the hot water which we never had but didn't need much). The beaches around the area aren't' the greatest so you may want to drive an hour to get to Montezuma/Santa Teresa since they are not that far. But, because the roads are so bad for the first 15-20 minutes, it feels much longer. Also recommend the waterfall hike near Rio Banco (ask Raul how to get there). Great pools to jump into.

Owner's Response: Hello, thanks for your comment. Hot water issue has been solved, thanks for letting us know about it. About the roads they should be paving some parts of it towards Santa Teresa shortly, but yes that area is well known for unpaved, and not the best roads, but well worth visiting. Hope you guys have a great year and visit us again sometime. Take care,

La casa es preciosa y está completamente equipada, la vista es espectacular. Por su ubicación no hay lugares cerca como para comprar comida, por lo que sí es necesario tener presente que se debe llevar todo lo que se va a necesitar. Durante nuestra estadía se fue la luz y el agua como por 9 horas, sin embargo, comprendemos que es una situación fortuita.

Owner's Response: Hola Angelica Muchas gracias por sus comentarios. Así es, por ser un zona tan natural y virgen a veces se presentan situaciones de este tipo por periodos muy cortos, esta vez se extendió un poco, las disculpas del caso, pero estamos felices que hayan disfrutado la casa, la ubicación el hecho que esté totalmente equipada y las vistas espectaculares. Esperamos nos visiten de nuevo e igualmente haremos todo a nuestro alcance para que la pasen bien y disfruten al maximo. Saludos,

Very nice calm beaches less than five minutes away, some beautiful natural reserves and the best attention and help possible. Thanks Edward, Sergio and Raul for everything, we will be back.
