  • Right on the beach! Quiet town, Esterillos Centro.

    "This is a small, simple beach house that is right on the beach in a pretty quiet area. You have a small dirt road to cross and you are right on the sand. The price is excellent for basically having the beach to yourself. The neighbor and the neighborhood have quite a few free roaming dogs so if you are not an animal lover, you may want to look elsewhere (then again nearby towns also have free roaming dogs!) =D. We went during August so the ocean was quite mixed up. However, right in front of the hotel nearby is considered a good surf spot. The spot right in front of the house is pretty good for swimming but I recommend bringing boogie fins because of the strong currents. There were boogie boards available when we stayed, which was quite nice. We rented longboards from Brett in Esterillos Oeste (also a good surf spot), nice guy. The hotel/restaurant within walking distance has a pool table and great food. First time trying snook/robalo! House is not too far of a drive from Jacó or Manuel Antonio. Some advice: I highly recommend bringing good mosquito repellant. Also, you are very close to an estuary which is nice to walk through. Pamela and Claudette are very pleasant to talk to. Thanks again."

  • Relaxed Luxury!!

    "The Beach Estates was as beautiful as the pictures. We were definitely not disappointed. We used the private air charter from San Jose to Tambor. I highly recommend this. It was an amazing experience and the looks on my family's as we took off were priceless. There is a $2.50 tax per person when you land and take off in Santa Teresa so be be prepared to pay it. We had some confusion because the person collecting said 250 per person so we thought it was $250 per person. We resolved that quickly. We had Chef Alex cook for us twice during our stay. It was wonderful. The first time on the night of our arrival was especially relaxing after a day of travel. We sat poolside and relaxed while our wonderful meal was prepared. Johnny, our concierge, was amazing! He arranged everything for us while there. Of the activities that we did, I would recommend the beachside horse back riding, the yoga, massage, and surf lessons. We had bad experiences with the Tortuga Island tour (not the fault of The Beach Estates staff) so we would skip that if we were to return. We had been advised to limit the cash we brought with us by friends that travelled to Costa Rica in the past. That was a mistake. The ATM in Santa Teresa will only let you withdraw $100 per day. Johnny was able to assist me with going to the bank to get a larger withdrawal. The fees were extremely high though. Just be aware and bring all of the cash with you that you will need for the trip. My only small complaint about our stay was with towel service from the housekeepers. We started out with 9 guests but only had 7 towels. You also have to pay extra to have towels exchanged daily. We asked for this towel service but never really got it. It would have been nice to have fresh clean towel each day, but we survived. I would definitely book here again if we return to Costa Rica!"

  • Perfect beach house experience

    "A beach house that is the perfect quiet, relaxing base to stay all day there or from which to explore the beautiful peninsula. The open style made us feel we were really living in the forest, especially when the howler monkeys come through. Beautiful trees and birds all around. The sand beach in front of the house has glorious sunrises - and is lovely for swimming at high tide - take trainers as it is stony in the water. There are restaurants nearby, Montezuma 5k's away and plenty more great beaches and forest to explore. And all around the interesting, small community of Cabuya. I highly recommend having your own car as there is a lot to explore . The grocery shop is just a walk away from the beach house. It's really lovely to just relax at the beach house too on the upstairs verandah in the hammock."

  • Beautiful condo with amazing ocean view!

    "Faith's condo is spacious , beautiful, and has a large balcony with amazing ocean views. Great location is just a short walk to many shops and restaurants or you can take a quick cab for a few dollars. Faith provided us with a great list of recommended restaurants , shopping, and activities. And was quick to repond to any questions we had. Her recommended driver, Dan, was at the airport to promptly whisk us off to our condo. He also provided us transportation for our day trip to Manuel Antonio Park. Dan is very nice and gave us great information along the way. We really enjoyed Crocs casino pool. Staff is always ready to bring you a cocktail or food while you relax at the pool. The staff at the palms is very friendly and helpful as well. Can't wait to return !"
