About Dave and Kate Treadway

We live in Florida where we love the ocean and the beaches. Our entire family is very active in sports and we love surfing, photography, and like most families keep very busy. Our vacation home in Costa Rica is our escape from this rat race we all call life.

Dave and Kate Treadway purchased this house in 2005

Why Dave and Kate Treadway chose Esterillos Oeste

Esterillos Oeste offers everything our family was looking for in a vacation home. Our only regret is that we do not get to spend more time at this beautiful property.

What makes this house unique

Our family is very active and enjoys surfing and the outdoors. Esterillos Oeste is simply a fantastic location that offers something for everyone in our family at any time of the day. The wildlife is spectacular and Esterillos is a photographers paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We cannot say enough good things about the house we've staying in for the last 10 days, Tres Pochetes (check it out on VRBO #262954). It's very spacious with 3 bedrooms (all with Queen or King sized beds) and 4 full bathrooms. All rooms overlook the Pacific Ocean. There is literally fishing and surfing right outside your front door (well, back gate anyway). It is walking distance to the town center and a 4 Star restaurant (Los Almendros). Or, if you prefer to eat in, you have a fully furnished kitchen at your disposal and full-sized refrigerator. The property managers live less than a block away so any problems can be addressed immediately. (Dave and Kate have been amazing.). It really is the perfect house for a beach vacation.

A Part of the Community

  • 5 of 5

WOW, I must say that this is undeniably one special place. It is here that one can find a healthy mix of expats, Ticos and surfers, all of who are blended together to make the community in the little town of Esterillos Oeste a great home away from home. Waking to nature's symphony of green parrots and waves each morning as well as being able to walk to the local market/restaurants deems the perfect getaway. In addition, the larger cities of Jaco and Parritta are only short drive away, allowing travelers to indulge in the best of both worlds… Our hosts Dave and Kate made us feel right at home! We are hoping to visit again next year!

Thank you for a beautiful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Esterillos, the beach is amazing and we enjoyed the storms at night and the beautiful surf and sand during the day. Our weather was amazing for our 2 week stay in July. The house was very comfortable, a bit rustic in some respects but we had everything that we needed to cook and relax. The pool was wonderful especially during the days that were really warm. This is a great location to have a quiet spot to relax but it was close enough to all of the activities to get there in a reasonable time and also close enough to Jaco to easily get supplies. We loved the food at Los Almendros, the fish was amazing. Loved being able to buy fish right off the beach in front of the house from the locals. Everyone was so nice throughout our stay and we appreciated having Dave and Kate just up the road from us. The chaos every night about 5:30pm with all the birds was great fun, and we also enjoyed the frog that came out every night and the iguana that lives under the deck. All in all a wonderful place to stay and an unforgettable vacation!!

Tres Pochotes June stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Costa Rica. Dave and Kate were great and responded quickly whenever we needed help or had questions. The house was fabulous. Right on the beach,

with a pool that made all of the difference at the hottest and most humid parts of the day.

We learned to surf right out in front of house with Jorge at Aloha Surf (we're in our 50's). we enjoyed personal massages and relaxed all week. This is a great place to stay if you just want

to chill on the beach for hours strolling or a great half way point to many fun destinations. We hope to return some day in the near future! Pura Vida Heather

Second Stay and Still Excellent

  • 5 of 5

House is great and location is off the charts. You can't ask for better people to manage the property than Dave and Kate. Esterillos is a nice little town and the local people are so friendly.

Will stay again.

Perfect location, on a beautiful beach, in a comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Tres Pochotes is a comfortable, perfectly located home. As with any oceanfront property, there is constant maintenance to be done, but the home was in overall good condition. We appreciated the king beds, the [small] pool, and the amazing hammock swing. Also, the quiet! Even though we were there over a weekend (Friday & Saturday) in high season, all was quiet.

Thank you for your hospitality, Dave. We had a wonderful (albeit too short) weekend, and hope to return!
