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

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!

Spectacular Home, Great location, stellar views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Carvajal with two families and a grandparent for Spring Break and it was spectacular. The views were breathtaking. Some mornings monkeys would pop up in the trees as we drank delicious Costa Rican coffee. The location was perfect for easy access to the Los Suenos resort and fishing area. We fished several days and had just a short drive to the Marina. A four wheel drive vehicle is necessary to climb the steep hills to the house. The restaurants in the Marina area were great as were the few along the public beach in town of Los Suenos, just a minute from the main gate or a doable walk from the Marina. The housekeeper, Susan, went out of her way to make suggestions for tour activities, cook meals and procure groceries and even a special birthday cake on evening. The caretaker was always unobtrusively present, brought out pool toys for the kids, pointed out lizards, Macaws, Toucans and other wildlife and even translated when needed. The tour operators on the beach of the resort, Piko and Juan Carlos were wonderful and provided a variety of activities perfectly suited to our desires and age demographic. Overlooking a great surf break in the cove of Playa Escondido we had fun watching the dozens of surfers ride the swells during the day and a walk to the empty lot across the road from the house every night at sunset was something to look forward to at the end of the day's activities. We all highly recommend this property. The owner was a pleasure to do business with and the home is even more spectacular in real life than in the photographs. We felt safe and securely guarded in this gated community at all times.
