My wife, Shelley, and I moved to Costa Rica in 2005 to start a new life and raise a family. We have three daughters now and we live on-site and manage the villas that we designed and built together at the Espadilla Ocean Club. We look forward to hosting you and your families.

Bobby Workman purchased this villa in 2013

Manuel Antonio is very unique because of the geography. The town is on a mountainside that overlooks the ocean and at the end of the road is the beautiful bay, beaches and national park. There is one way in and one way out which makes it feel like the special place that it is. Our villa is extremely unique in its design and in its proximity to this very well protected beach.

Our villa is special with its waterfall showers, attention to detail, view of the ocean, proximity to the beach and amenities(no car needed), modern design and its natural setting.

OUR WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
EOC is absolutely gorgeous. The facilities are brand new, beautifully designed villas. Basically every surface in the villas is tile or stone (of course, there are mattresses and plenty of cushions to sleep and sit on). This makes a lot of sense because there will be sand EVERYWHERE when you come in from the beach. There is a fully functioning kitchen, which we used to make breakfast a couple of times. There are two bedrooms of course, and both have reasonably comfortable beds (better than both of the San Jose hotels we stayed at, for sure). There are also two full bathrooms with toilet and shower. Again, all of the fixtures are brand new. There is also a small patio and splash pool.

Second, location. You can literally see the beach from the master bedroom window. This, by itself, is amazing. Imagine being able to go to the beach without having to worry about leaving your stuff under an umbrella while you go swimming. Worrying about my stuff is the one thing I always hated about the beach. But having it so close to the villa means you can bring your towel and keys, and nothing else. If you need something else, it's a 5 minute walk back.

The villas are fairly close together, but I never felt like my privacy was invaded and I never heard noise from other guests. There was some light construction going on during my stay, but the hosts (Bobby and Shelley) were EXTRAORDINARILY accommodating about that. They assured us that they would try to have the construction done while we were away, and they always called to ask our permission before there was any noisy construction going on. I barely noticed it.

One of the best parts of our stay at EOC was how helpful the hosts were. Shelley was always available to answer questions and give us recommendations. She obviously cares very much about making sure the guests have a great time. She made some great recommendations for activities (catamaran boat, buggy ride up the mountains to a waterfall, and national park tour) and made arrangements for all of it.

The small staff at EOC does a fantastic job keeping the facilities in great shape. If you are like me, you will be amazed how quickly you make a mess of the place. But then I was amazed how thoroughly the staff cleaned up the villa while we were out.

EOC was the perfect place for our winter getaway, and I'm already trying to figure out when I can get back there!

EXPERIENCED COSTA TRAVERLER

  • 5 of 5
I have visited Costa Rica so many times that I have lost count. I have traveled from Panama up to Nicaragua, staying in every type hotel from small private beach cabinas to large all-inclusive resorts. As I get older, I have been looking for a area and resort to call my Costa home.

I finally found it in the EOC. Manual Antonio pretty much has it all. Great restaurants, beautiful beach, awesome National Park, uncrowded surfing and all the tours you could possibly want.

The resort is fantastic. The villas are super comfortable and beautify designed. Also, it is right on the beach. Every other house we have rented in Manual Antonio has been up on the hill and we have had to take the car to the beach, where parking can be a bit of an issue. The surfing in Manual Antonio is not as epic as a lot of the Pacific Costa Rican towns, however the lack of crowds and tidal consistency easily makes up for the smaller swell. It is also a great place to learn to surf and you always have the option to travel a few minutes down the road to Dominical where the surf is epic.

Lastly, I have to comment on the family that runs the EOC. Bobby and Shelly are wonderful. I would go back just to hang out with them. No matter whether you are looking for solitude or good friends they will have you dialed in from the moment you get there.

I will be back and plan to make a trip with my wife towards the end of the summer.

OUR WONDERFUL VISIT TO ESPADILLA OCEAN CLUB IN MANUEL ANTONIO, COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about the convenient location and physical condition of our villa. The very short distance to the beach was perfect. Once all Villas are complete, we hope to go back with another family or two. We were there with our two teenage kids (13 & 16) and they were able to come and go as they wished. The villa was very roomy but cosey enough to enjoy our family time. The kids loved it. The beach is beautiful. We enjoyed costa rican meals prepared for us. The Hosts planned many activities for us and were so helpful. We enjoyed the Ocean King catamaran trip, as well as zip-lining. Thank you Bobby & Shelley - we hope to be back soon.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
I just spent two weeks in Costa Rica at the Espadilla Ocean Club with my family (me, my husband and 2 kids, ages 6 and 4) and had a great experience. The villas are exceptional....modern, clean, comfortable and really beautiful. They left out no detail in designing and building these villas. Downstairs is a full kitchen, sitting area and bathroom. Upstairs there are 2 comfortable bedrooms, one with a loft that could sleep an adult or 2 kids comfortably. The view from the upstairs king bedroom is exquisite....right down to the Pacific Ocean. If you look up into the trees, there is also a good chance you will see monkeys. From the kitchen downstairs, you look out over the convenient (and welcomed) splash pool, deck, and towards the ocean as well. AC is available, but not necessary during the day. We kept the doors and windows open and had a great breeze that cooled things off.

The managers of the EOC live on site and are extremely helpful. They were always available for questions and their recommendations (for trips, restaurants, etc) were spot on. They booked all our adventures for us and gave us all the necessary information so we could be ready and have everything we needed for the trips. They are both completely fluent in English and Spanish and couldn't be nicer.

The location of the EOC is spectacular. It sits right in the middle of a one mile stretch of beach. The south part of the beach borders the Manuel Antonio reserve. I would run in the mornings or evenings (depending on the tide) on the beach. My Garmin marked one half-mile out each way on the beach, so I would get a 2 mile run in easily. I felt safe running by myself. The beach is about a one minute walk out your back villa door, making access to the beach and back to the villa very easy. With kids, it was helpful to be able to easily walk back to the villa for something forgotten or a quick break. Not only is the beach accessible, so is the rest of the town. It was a few minutes drive to any of the restaurants we went to or to the park. I really don't think there is a better location for a place to stay in the area.

We plan to return to this area each summer and will stay with the EOC for sure. It is the perfect location, spectacular villas and superb service. Highly recommended.

WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was magnificent! A very accomodating, comfortable and very nicely decorated condo. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we could need - even plates and plastic cups for our 7 and 4 year old girls. The main bedroom has a great view - monkeys greeted us every morning! We enjoyed the jacuzzi just outside, and it was very convenient being so close to the beach - about a 2 minute walk. Our hosts - Bobby and Shelley - are SUPER nice. Thanks for such a fun weekend!

BEAUTIFUL, BRAND NEW VILLA. BEST LOCATION IN MANUAL ANTONIO.

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the brand new EOC villas while vacationing in Manual Antonio. This place was exceptionally peaceful and beautiful! Once we arrived we felt as though we'd been transported to a different world. For the first time ever on vacation my husband and I were really able to "unplug" from our fast paced lives and totally regroup and reconnect with our kids and each other.
The villa itself is brand new! Very clean. Tastefully decorated and designed. Plenty of room for our family of four. The beds are very comfortable. First night there, was probably the best sleep I've had in years as I drifted off to the peaceful lull of the ocean waves crashing in. The view from the wall to wall windows is breathtaking.
The location is prime! Its a very short walk to the beach, grocery stores, great bars, restaurants, and shops. No rental car needed!
Bobby and Shelley, the owners here, made our vacation "once in a lifetime." We arrived on a Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning Shelley had arranged childcare in our villa, during which, my husband and I took private yoga lessons on the beach followed up with a couples massage by Shelley. It was seriously the best we've ever had. During our entire stay they made great recommendations for food and fun, arranged some really awesome excursions, and hooked us up with really wonderful guides. You must check out Mid World Zipline Tour, totally awesome! And I think its "Ocean King," for catamaran! Really incredible excursions! You can find Miguel on the beach for surf lessons just to the left of the villa. He's so awesome and created a love for surfing in my 4 year old!
Bobby and Shelley are wonderful hosts. Their love for this project and Costa Rica is apparent in everything they do! We are telling all our friends and family about this place and we can't wait to return!
