PARADISE FOUND QUIET BEACHFRONT WITH POOL/ GREAT FAMILY HOUSE

Esterillos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths sleeps 6 to 8

Near the end of a kilometer-long palm tree lined beachfront dirt road lies Paradise Found. This rustic beach house, less than two hours from the San Jose International Airport, invites you to unwind Costa Rican style. 

The two-story three bedroom home is steps away from the deserted sands of the Central Pacific Coast of Esterillos Este.  The vibrant jungle estuary borders the backyard. 

The downstairs boasts an open floorplan with fully equipped kitchen, eating area, lounge area and half bath.  A large wraparound covered porch serves as the perfect place to gather and/or dine alfresco.

The three roomy upper bedrooms, all open onto the upper lanai where guests can slip from their bedroom to relax in a rocking chair or hammock and enjoy spectacular ocean views or be mesmerized by the surf as it rolls along the shore.  

The bedrooms include:  a queen suite with private bath and hot shower,  a queen and full sized suite with private bath and hot shower, and a double bed suite with two double beds.  

There is a separate cabina for two with a full-size bed and half bathroom.  Special arrangements can be made to additionally rent this ‘owner’s unit’  with the main residence.

There is plenty of room to park your car on the property within the wooden gates for added peace of mind.

Wake up to the sounds of the surf and the calls of colorful birds. Enjoy spectacular sunrise and sunsets right from your front door. Walk the endless beach. Surf, boogie board, fish.  Rediscover nature.  All of this and more, away from the  commercialized tourist stops in Costa Rica.

Reconnect with your family or friends as you eat your meals together inside or outside on the covered porch (you just might be treated to an incredible lightning storm) or just relax with a book by the pool.  You may be lucky enough to view families of white faced monkeys leaping high overhead in the backyard. (Peeled bananas are a good enticement.)

After enjoying time in the pool or warm waters of the Pacific Ocean rinse off in one of two outdoor showers; one with an ocean view, the other with jungle views. 

On Esterillos Beach there are several restaurants within walking distance: from under to a little over a mile stroll along the sand. Both fine and casual dining are available. There are a few small markets in the villages of Esterillos Oeste and Bejuco, about a 10 minute drive.  There are larger markets in Parrita, and Jaco located within a 20 minute drive on the paved highway.

Massages, canopy/ziplining, whitewater rafting Manuel Antonio National Park, Mangrove Monkey Tour, Sunset horseback riding, golf, fishing, hiking and more can all be found less than 45 minutes away.  

Paul, our onsite caretaker manages the property.  He has lived and traveled throughout Costa Rica for several years.  Combining his extensive knowledge of Costa Rica, along with his passion for traveling and all things adventurous, he is happy to share his knowledge and advice with you to ensure a wonderful and unforgettable Costa Rican vacation experience. Please allow him to answer any questions or assist you in making any tour or travel arrangements you may need.

RELAXING, COMFORTABLE, AND A GOOD VALUE

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Paradise Found for four nights in early July, 2014. We had originally only planned to stay for three nights, but emailed Mary while we were in Costa Rica to ask if we could come a night early. She responded right away with, "no problem!" This was the perfect place to finish out our Costa Rica vacation. We'd spent five days driving to numerous destinations and participating in numerous activities. We switched gears and moved into relaxation mode at Paradise Found. Esterillos Este is a very, very quiet town. We spent at least two full days doing very little but napping in the hammocks, playing in the pool, and reading books. Paul lives on the property and is very nice and helpful. He also got up early to make sure that the pool was clean and ready to go for us each day (removing the beach crabs that liked to make their way to the pool in the middle of the night). We had a great stay and would recommend Paradise Found for families or other groups looking for a quiet place to kick back and relax.

RELAXATION!

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a fantastic time at Paradise Found - it was hard to return home! Mikey and Diana were perfect hosts - great recommendations for dining and activities. The kids will always remember the squawking macaws, monkeys and iguanas, sweet Emily the dog and Sneakers the kitty, and of course all of the fun geckos! We spent most of our time in and around the gorgeous pool and walking the quiet beach, finding numerous shells and enjoying watching the hermit crabs, etc. frolic on the sand. My husband practiced his surfing and body boarding and we enjoyed the proximity to Manuel Antonio for animal viewing and Jaco for grocery shopping. We had a delightful time and are looking forward to our next Costa Rica adventure. Thank you!!!

PERFECT! GORGEOUS ISOLATED BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
Everything is exactly as pictured and described! The house is clean, comfortable, and adorable. We slept great to the sound of the waves crashing all night long. I don't know where else you could find a stretch of beach this beautiful and isolated. Many times I walked the beach and never saw another person. We enjoyed hiking and day trips in the area, but loved having the solitude of this property to come back to.

Mikey and Diana did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome and making sure the property & pool were perfectly maintained. They are very knowledgeable about the area and arranged outings for us (zip line, monkey tour, fishing) and gave us excellent tips and directions to local attractions (Manuel Antonio, Rain Maker). They could answer any questions that we had about Costa Rica.

The owner provided beach chairs, coolers, beach toys, and boogie boards ~ making it easy for a family to enjoy the beach. Our daughters age 16, 13, and 8 all loved this trip. If you are looking for a real Costa Rica experience we would highly recommend this house. If you go don't miss fishing with Minor, eating at Vargas, and hiking Rain Maker.

NOTHING BUT SMILES

  • 5 of 5
Our family felt we truly found paradise with this rental. We had 9 days filled with local activities and relaxing by the pool. Mikey and Diana along with Andrew were great! They made arrangements for us to go whitewater rafting, visiting rainmaker, horse back riding on the beach at sunset, having massages at the house and on and on. The ocean was steps from the house for surfing and shell collecting and the pool was a big hit for relaxing and taking in the sun. You won't be disappointed with this find if you like to play and relax!
In addition we had monkeys in the backyard, iguanas, macaws, land crabs, cranes to entertain us! Everyone we had contact with was very friendly.

GREAT PLACE, GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
It was our first time in Costa Rica and we had truly amazing time in Paradise Found. Just imagine staying on the beach with no other people in sight or falling asleep listening sounds of the ocean and the tropical insects choir. Whiteface monkeys are visiting the backyard frequently, macaws are coming in the mornings to feed on the almond trees, iguanas are harvesting flowers in the garden. This is a great place to choose if you want to stay away from the crowd. The property looks better than shown in the pictures; it's clean and cozy, beds are comfortable. The pool is spotless. Diana and Mikey, the villa's caretakers are nice and very helpful. They know the area well and gave us advises where to buy groceries, souvenirs, what restaurants to eat and what are the attractions around. Our favorite was a hike in the tropical forest, the Rainmaker park. It goes all the way in the shade and is a good place to hide away from the heat. Swimming in the natural pools by the waterfall was refreshing. We enjoyed Diana's meals and swimming in the pool that Mikey is maintaining in an awesome condition. Massage that Diana recommended was the best one I've ever had. We came with two kids, one teenager and one toddler, both of them were happy to be there.
