Your home away from home in Costa Rica!

This beautiful, private, and comfortable home enjoys ocean-views and breezes, is only steps from one of the most beautiful and clean cinnamon coloured sand beaches in Costa Rica, which features world-class surfing, side by side with romatic coves and tide pools which are safe for even small children to play in, and miles and miles of untouched protected shore with abundant wildlife.

It's paradise with birds and all kinds of wildlife, including gorgeous Scarlet Macaws which fly directly overhead just about every day.

Beautiful, very private and comfortable, with view of the surf, only 3 blocks from the beach in Esterillos Oeste in desirable Canada hill, just 15 minutes south of Jaco, with 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths. Well equipped kitchen, pool, garden, full size washer and dryer, fruit trees, car port.

Great beach for surfing, and swimming, walking for miles on virgin beach with scenic jungles that come right to the edge of the beach. Quaint small town offers a variety of restaurants, a small well stocked supermarket, and great atmosphere at the 2 great local hangouts: Surf Mi sports bar and restaurant near the beach and great food at Los Almendros restaurants. Everything is within a 5 to 10 minute walk. There is frequent bus service to nearby towns of Jacó and Parrita, as well as the capital San Jose (airport) which is only 1 1/2 hours away.

Comes fully furnished and equipped and includes all utilities, telephone (local calls), cable TV, high speed internet, gardener, pool maintenance.

About Yolanda Goulet

Esterillos Oasis has been our home for the last 17 years. Our family has grown up here and are now off to new horizons, but Costa Rica and particularly this house has been wonderful for us.

When you rent this home, you are renting much more than a vacation place to stay in, you will be in fact enjoying all the amenities we ourselves enjoyed as our home.

We hope that you will enjoy it too!

Yolanda Goulet purchased this house in 1999

the property looks pretty in the pics. we were disappointed when we got there

  • 2 of 5

the house needs a make over badly. the appliances are almost non functioning. very old and dirty linens and kitchen supplies. cockroaches and other vermin in the house. dirty everything, does not appear to have been cleaned. the pool area was beautiful and we enjoyed being outside. also, a cat lives there and was always wanting in. we did not want a cat in our laps. the ocean was a short walk and beautiful, we really enjoyed walking on the beach. we would never return for another visit to this property

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry that your experience with the property didn't match the several consistently good reviews I've had. To address your comments specifically, the house was almost completely repainted recently and, although not brand new, all the appliances and working parts are regularly checked and reviewed to see if they require maintenance or replacement. Indeed, three ceiling fans were changed just a few months ago, one of which (still under warranty) broke during your visit, and you were supplied with a floor fan immediately to compensate. My housekeeper Maritza is frankly the best I've ever had and attacks corners with a toothbrush. I was personally there just a couple of weeks prior to your visit, and the house was in excellent order. The house and property are fumigated regularly, but it's normal in the tropics to encounter the odd cockroach and geckos (which are not vermin). I was also particularly surprised by the specific comments on my one year old high-quality white cotton sheets. There is a cat that has gotten used to being friendly with tenants, but after speaking with my property manager who stopped by regularly to make sure that everything was OK, he said that you complained about not having AC (which isn't listed on our description) and about the broken fan, but never mentioned any other issue(s) to him (or to me) that might have been corrected if you had said so, including the cat's removal if it bothered you. We work really hard at making sure that our guests are comfortable and enjoy the best stay possible, and to provide a vacation rental that is true to our description. It's such a shame that your expectations were not met. I wish that you had mentioned any of your issues with the property manager so that he could have dealt with them immediately. I would also invite you in future to fully read the property description, as well as ask specific questions prior to your booking to ensure that you fully understand what to expect.

Absolutely loved the place. The house was clean and welcoming, the pool was fresh, and the village has everything we needed for our short stay without a car. Our hostess was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We highly recommend it. Pat Thomas

Convenient and Enjoyable Home for a wonderful beach vacation.

  • 4 of 5

We loved this property and the wonderful quaint little town of Esterilllos. About 5 blocks to a beautiful beach and close enough to the main highway to be able to go to other locations for day trips. Yolanda, the owner, was so wonderful to work with....she was always happy and quick to answer any email questions I had. The rooms in the home are's great to have a home to just make yours for a few days. There is not air-conditioning and we were there in a particularly crazy heat wave. There were fans in every room but if you aren't used to the humidity, it can get uncomfortable. Fortunately, there is a refreshing pool in the backyard that we enjoyed. The town of Esterilllos is such a great little town....not a beach trendy place. You just mix in with the locals. There is one local market and a couple of restaurants, so it really has everything you need. Also, not the easiest to find your way around Costa Rica, but Yolanda provides maps and directions which were essential.
