About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a relatively undiscovered beautiful stretch of sand and is home to diverse and striking ecology only at 1 hour 1/2 from the Juan Santa Maria International Airport (SJO).

Our property hosts both sandy inter-tidal and the mangrove estuary ecosystems. You will enjoy spotting various fauna, including the owl butterfly, the stocky green iguana, the scarlet macaw, flocks of pelicans overhead, along with an assortment of other colorful birds, as well as a variety of crabs and frogs.

If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the white-faced capuchin monkey along the esterillos (estuary).

A very large porch surrounded by tropical garden and ocean view.

Tucked away on the beach, this is a peaceful relaxing safe location.

The picturesque beach is a sandy surfers haven, maintaining a close distance to the highway, gas, shopping, restaurants, and many national parks and wildlife reserves.

Twenty minutes south of Jacó and forty five minutes North of Manuel Antonio in a secluded beach community of private homes.

Calme et repos

  • 5 of 5

Nous en sommes à notre 3e visite à cette merveilleuse maison. Situé à 200 pieds de la plage, seulement séparé par un chemin(très peu passant). La description de la maison est identique à ce que vous aller trouver. Tout est fonctionnel, même une laveuse. Penser à faire votre épicerie à Jaco, sinon, mini épicerie(10 minutes) à Estherillos Este. Petit truc pour éviter d'avoir trop de fourmis, emballer les aliments sucrés dans des ziploc. Auto nécessaire. Si vous voulez faire des activités, Mme Labrie peut vous organiser cela facilement. Sinon la plage est magnifique, petite attention à la marée, coucher de soleil à ne pas manquer. Chaise de plage et parasol dans la maison. Il y a un couple de Ara(perroquet) qui passe juste au-dessus de nous, deux fois par jours, wow! Qualité/prix pour nous, y a pas mieux si vous désirer le calme.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this hidden gem. The cabina is clean, well maintained, and has all the amenities you might require. The large patio is where we spent the majority of the time we were "at home." The beach is pristine, sandy and virtually private. We walked a mile in either direction each morning and rarely saw other human beings. There were, of course, some people on the beach on weekends, but it was never crowded. The cabina is quiet and a bit isolated. A car would be necessary at least part of the time. There is just one restaurant within walking distance; however there are no grocery stores or anything else within walking distance. Claudette was always very helpful. She ordered a rental car for us that was delivered right to our door. She was always terrific at suggesting tours for us. She also willingly booked them for us. It's a great place that we'll probably return to. It's also the only place I've ever been where I could see both sunrises and sunsets each day.

My wife & I spent 9 glorious days at this home in April 2016. It seemed like the perfect time to visit prior to the upcoming rainy season. Claudette, the manager of the property, was extremely helpful from the start of reservation to the time of our arrival. She was diligent in responding to our emails concerning questions and advise prior to arriving. She assisted with our car rental arrangements with Adobe Car Rental (highly recommend)! Upon arrival, she met us and helped us become familiar with our new surroundings. The home presents itself exactly as the photos represent. It was clean, comfortable, good A/C, water pressure, internet, cable TV, and a spacious porch with a hammock, which got a lot of use. The beach access could not be better, walk down the driveway to the beach. We had the beach to ourselves for the majority of the time, warm water, and good waves to swim and surf. We are beach people, so not having any crowds or intrusions on the beach was fantastic. Claudette was able to refer us to a superb boat captain for inshore and offshore fishing while we were there. We fished 2 separate mornings and ate our catch at the end of the day. The chef at the nearby beach restaurant/hotel prepared our catch for dinner that same evening. What a setting for dinner!! The Esterillos Centro location was ideally located between Jaco Beach and Manuel Antonio. Make sure you visit both towns. We made several trips to Jaco Beach as they have larger grocery stores (Auto Macado), banks/ATM, and pharmacies. A visit to Los Suenos Resort and Marina is worth the time near Jaco. A rental car is a necessity with this rental home, but allows you to tour the countryside, try local restaurants, and mix in the local culture. We also took a 3 hour ATV tour among the hills providing breathtaking views, swimming in the waterfalls, and driving in the river beds, a real blast! We felt very safe in the home and the area, using normal judgement of locking the doors at night and not tempting things to theft. The house is wired with an alarm system for added security. This was one of our top vacations and we made many friends in this small town. We plan to visit again next year and will reserve this home again, already looking forward to Claudette's hospitality and accommodation!

exactly as pictured, delightful home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two weeks in this lovely home. The pictures are completely accurate - clean, a/c and hot water work well. Beach is directly across the little road - we rarely saw anyone on the beach, and saw no more than 15 people on weekend days. Very peaceful. Claudia was very responsive to contacts and set us up for two tours (zipline was great; monkey boat tour is great if you just want to see and have fun with monkeys - if you want a narrated tour describing all of the flora and fauna you see in the mangrove, choose one other than Rafa). Some other reviews mentioned security - if you behave as you would in a big city (lock the doors, don't leave belongings unattended), you're fine. We felt totally safe. Must have car.

A great little hideaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I needed to get away and decompress from life. This was the perfect little house for us. Right across the way from a beautiful beach and quiet. Claudia was a fantastic host, available for any questions that we had. Do not miss having Erika come over for a wonderful massage and get your fish and lobster from the local fisherman right there in Centro. The house is simply appointed, but the air conditioning works great and the hot water is HOT! A quiet and romantic getaway. We recommend this house highly.

séjour en février pour 6 jours. Maison située à 100 mètres de la mer. Plage de sable noir doux. Nous étions seuls sur la plage. Il y a 2 chaises de plages et un petit parasol très utile parce que le soleil tape fort. Télé écran de 15", air climatisée dans les chambres, insuffisant pour refroidir la maison au complet, mais tout de même moins pénible qu'à l'extérieur. Beaucoup de petites fourmis sur le comptoir de la cuisine, il ne faut pas laisser traîner de la nourriture, même emballer. Grand patio couvert à l'avant, avec le bruit de l'océan et un hamac, relaxer! Épicerie la plus proche est à Jaco, mais dépanneur à Estérillos oeste.

Owner's Response: Un plaisir de vous avoir reçu, je suis désolée pour les fourmis mais dans les tropiques c'est assez difficile de se débarrasseer de toutes les petites bébittes...
