This fantastic home is one of only a few beach front homes available in Esterillos Oeste. The spacious living area offers couples, groups, or families plenty of room to entertain. The full patio and deck looks out to the Esterillos Oeste beach directly in front of this spectacular home. The three bedrooms are all on the second floor with balconies off of each room overlooking the beach.
The spacious deck offers a private pool for cooling off after an afternoon of surfing, shelling, or just walking on the spectacular beach. The beach in Esterillos Oeste offers world class surfing, boogie boarding, and swimming. You can literally walk for miles in both directions on the beach. The west end of the village offers a unique lava reef visible at low tide and host the famous mermaid statue.

We live in Florida where we love the ocean and the beaches. Our entire family is very active in sports and we love surfing, photography, and like most families keep very busy. Our vacation home in Costa Rica is our escape from this rat race we all call life.
Dave Treadway purchased this house in 2005
Esterillos Oeste offers everything our family was looking for in a vacation home. Our only regret is that we do not get to spend more time at this beautiful property.
Our family is very active and enjoys surfing and the outdoors. Esterillos Oeste is simply a fantastic location that offers something for everyone in our family at any time of the day. The wildlife is spectacular and Esterillos is a photographers paradise.
We cannot say enough good things about the house we've staying in for the last 10 days, Tres Pochetes (check it out on VRBO #262954). It's very spacious with 3 bedrooms (all with Queen or King sized beds) and 4 full bathrooms. All rooms overlook the Pacific Ocean. There is literally fishing and surfing right outside your front door (well, back gate anyway). It is walking distance to the town center and a 4 Star restaurant (Los Almendros). Or, if you prefer to eat in, you have a fully furnished kitchen at your disposal and full-sized refrigerator. The property managers live less than a block away so any problems can be addressed immediately. (Dave and Kate have been amazing.). It really is the perfect house for a beach vacation.
I came down to this nice place with my Girlfriend and her 2 teenaged kids and we had a great time. The house is well appointed and in a great location. In the mornings we could get deliveries of eggs, bread and sometimes a local fisherman named Cesar would come by with his catch and is available to take you out fishing as well. If you want to go fishing I recommend bringing gear as Rapalas and good rods are near impossible to find.
The surfing was good and restaurants are walking distance. The house is on the beach right on a surf break. David is nice and easy to deal with. We left feeling like we will be back again. Pura Vida!
This Esterillos beach house (Tres Pochotes named for the 3 Pochote trees on the property) is a beautifully designed and comfortable modern home equipped with everything you need for a vacation.We have stayed in this lovely home many times and every time we leave we begin planning our next trip to Esterillos and Tres Pochotes. The house is perfectly located ,just steps from the ocean and also near several beautiful national forests full of flora and fauna. We visited both Carrara and Manuel Antonio which are an easy ride from the house. There is also a great zip line tour close by which my children loved.
We saw scarlet macaws from the deck of the house every day and an occasional iguana which was very exciting .
My children also loved being able to walk out of the house with their surfboard and boogie boards at a moment's notice when they saw that the waves were just right.
The pool at the house is so refreshing after a few hours of beach time and the sunsets are spectacular!
We feel lucky to have found such a special vacation home in Costa Rica's tropical paradise. I am going to look at my calendar right now to see when we will be able to return.
En caso de mi familia encanto por comodidad y por poder llevar animales. Nosotros cuando viajamos con nuestra familia visitamos solamente Restaurantes y hoteles pets friendly. Puntos extra.
Great location, a house with personality and the managers are really nice, they will help you whit everything.
I am a writer and my husband is a surfer, so this was the ideal combination for us. I needed to finish a challenging manuscript that dealt with deeply personal issues, and he needed a break from a grueling work schedule to commune with Mother Ocean! What an amazing place. We stepped right from the patio onto one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. There are very few tourists there, so we had the feeling of having discovered paradise. We could walk for miles every morning and evening and hardly encounter anyone. Magnificent birds filled the trees, the fisherman pulled up their boats outside our window every morning, and the tropical heat melted all the knots in our bodies. The house is comfortable, spacious, with all the amenities we could ever wish for. We are already longing to return. It felt like home. Kim & John, the owners, have given loving attention to every detail, & you can feel their deep connection to this place. Dave & Kate were totally responsive & helpful. We had an especially wonderful afternoon flying through the canopy of the rainforest on a zip line, among white-faced capuchin monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, and sloths. Las Almendras served fresh, healthy, gourmet foods with ultra-fresh fish. The Pochote trees for which the house derives its name, "Tres Pochotes," are sacred to the Indigenous people of that land.
Our family of 4 enjoyed an amazing vacation at Esteillos Oeste. This vacation property is lovely. It's spacious, clean and a terrific location. The accessibility to beach and town amenities was ideal. The view and sound of the ocean was the back drop we hoped for.
Esterillos Oeste is a gem of a village. People are friendly and helpful. The grocery store has all you need (except meats - don't need it with a bounty of fresh fish available everyday). There are 4 good restaurants (open air) and a couple other small eateries near by. Rancho Coral is next to the house their wood fired pizza is delicious. A 4 block walk through town or along the beach leads you to the Main Street. There's a grocery store, Brett's surf rental/lessons, Amigios restaurant (good food) and Surf Sol (fun bar and restaurant). We had many exquisite dinners at Los Almendros - Karen and her team offer a fabulous menu & service.
Walk about, take long beach walks where you may be the only person around and explore the areas near Esterilos. Jaco is a tourist spot 20 minutes north and Manuel Antonio national park is a 40 minute drive south where you pass Quepos. It's worth the trip to see wild monkeys, sloths, birds etc and spectacular beaches. The Rainmaker rain forest hike is a must see and is 30 minutes away. For something decadent Erica will come to the house for massages, manis or pedis.
We recommend renting a car however there is public transit and taxis to and from some locations outside Esterillos. American dollars and CR colones accepted. No ATM (go to Jaco or Parrita).
We found very few bugs with some small Gekos and lizards all harmless. The 4 scarlet macaws in our tress swooped in morning and early evening.
Dave and Kate are much more than property managers. They provide all the info you need, arrange trips, make contacts for you and do all they can to make your stay perfect. They are truly wonderful people!
We'll be back.
