About Eric Carvajal

My Father was born and raised in Costa Rica but currently resides in San Antonio, TX. He purchased the lot approx. 15 years ago with the idea to one day build his dream beach home . After 3 years of designing and planning, he finally began construction on this Costa Rican masterpiece, . The intention was never to rent the house and all of the furnishings are very high end and purchased for personal use. We would love to share our family home with yours!

Why Eric Carvajal chose Puntarenas

We purchased this lot about 15 years ago because of the view. You will not find a better setting in Costa Rica. We constructed our dream home on the lot about 9 years ago and we could not ask for anything better. The neighborhood is gated and very private and safe for our family. Also, the homes in the neighborhood are primarily owned by Costa Rican families so we get a true cultural immersion while we stay there and keep far enough away from the touristy type crowds in the main resort areas.

What makes this house unique

Best view in Costa Rica. Private beach in neighborhood. Scarlett Macaws, monkeys, iguanas, you name it, right in our back yard

Definitely 5 Stars! Fabulous House ! Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Driving from the San Jose Airport to Los Suenos was well worth the drive!

The view from the Carvajal home takes your breath away daily. The house exceeded all of our expectations. The house is very clean and well kept. We felt very safe during our entire stay. It is a gated community and therefore you have to be granted access to get into the community.

Maureen the maid is awesome! We just loved her. She was very attentive and she is a great cook. The first day when we arrived she pulled out a schedule for the meal plans. She cooks breakfast and lunch. She made us some very delicious Costa Rican dishes. Even my picky eater would eat all of his food. Some of the food Examples included: Gallo Pinto, Arroz con Pollo, and Cazado. She even gave us a mini cooking lesson because we wanted to know some of her cooking secrets. She is soooooooo sweet. We just loved loved loved Maureen.

Donald the grounds keeper is also around to help out. He sets up the outdoor furniture cushions and cleans the outside daily. He is also there to turn the spa on and off for you and with any troubles that may arise.

10 total people stayed comfortably.

We also visited the community pool and beach area and everything was nice and clean. There was a grounds person also cleaning the private beach area. Los Suenos isn't too far from Jaco and there is a Market that is not too far as well.

We booked excursions to ride ATV's (Jaguars were great), we did the Canopy Ziplining Tour and we loved it, and my kids rafted on the Naranjo River. All excursion companies that we used picked us up from the house. We did go out and explore a lot and we always came back to relax and jump into the pool and look at the view. If we were out exploring during lunch Maureen would leave the prepared meals.

We got visitors almost daily coming from the trees that are directly behind the house. Monkeys would come by and we would watch them from the infinity pool. We would leave bananas out so that they could get a little closer. We saw several large iguanas and of course cute little geckos.

Great family vacation! One of our best family vacations! Hope you love this home as much as our family did!

Beautiful View, Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

The house is open, airy, spacious, and has a beautiful view of the bay. The pool overlooks the water as well, as do 3 of the 4 bedrooms with balconies. The housekeeper and groundskeeper are very nice, anxious to help, keep everything immaculate, but don't really speak English, so Google translate is helpful if you don't speak Spanish!

The resort is also lovely. It is great to have easy access (except for the many speed bumps!, about a 10-minute drive) to good restaurants and some shopping at the marina. The Hookup, Lanterna, and the steakhouse were all good. Also possible to order groceries, prepared food, and chef to come to the house from Jimmy T. for meals other than breakfast.

It's wonderful to hang out at the house, but if you want to get out for a bit, there are many options. Driving to the marina/shops, or the community pool for private residents near the Marriott that has a swim-up bar and grill (need key card). There are tennis courts (if you are a serious player, bring your own racquet) and another pool a minute drive up from the house that is just for that particular neighborhood. There is a small beach also close by (2-minute drive, need different key card), but we enjoyed being at the house more. You can also go on tours, with pickup at the house. We arranged a few with Piko travel, a husband and wife who are super-nice and very reliable. The crocodile tour was surprisingly entertaining.

Really a great home, one of the nicest in the resort, with an ideal combination of privacy with resort amenities. Highly recommended.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 5 days with two more families: 6 adults and 7 kids under the age of 6 year old. The house is fantastic with a spectacular view. Great location and it is equipped with all your needs. We spent most of out time enjoying the house (with private pool)!

We highly recommend this house if you are thinking in visiting Costa Rica!

Thank you Eric for all your help and support to make this trip very pleasant

More than we expected!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with two families. My husband and I and our 3 kids along with our sister, husband and their two kids. There is SO much we could say about this home. The view is absolutely stunning! The house is spectacular (we felt like royalty)! It is a fantastic design and couldn't be laid out better. It is equipped with everything we needed. There is a ton of space, even with 9 of us staying. Susan (the maid/cook) and Donald (the gardener) were fantastic and truly made the week relaxing and enjoyable. The community is highly secure. While we were there we went zip lining in Manuel Antonio, the guys spent a day deep sea fishing (reeled in 19 sailfish!!) out of Los Suenos marina, and we took surf lessons at Tortuga Surf School. The rest of the time we spent enjoying the house, the pool, and all that went with it. The weather was hot and sunny. We can't say enough about this gorgeous home. Thank you Eric!
