Casa Marilyn is a luxury three bedroom villa that occupies the whole of the ground floor of a standalone building in the Del Pacifico Resort.
From the moment you arrive at Del Pacifico at Esterillos, you will find a place unlike any other in Costa Rica.
Set in the midst of the grandeur of the Costa Rican rain forest and the exotic palm coast of the Pacific Ocean, Del Pacifico at Esterillos offers the best of both of these settings. Del Pacifico is a village by the sea – a private place to relax, recharge and reflect. A master-planned community meticulously designed by internationally renowned architects and woven into the very fabric of Costa Rica’s rich cultural heritage and natural beauty.
Del Pacifico is ideally located midway between the popular beach resort of Jaco Beach and the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park. With the opening of the new highway in 2010, it is now less than 2 hours to drive by car from the International Airport at San Jose.
Casa Maryln is a spacious and luxurious condominium comprised of over 2000 square feet of living space. There are two bedrooms with king size beds, each with their own en suite bathroom and a third bedroom with twin beds. The third bathroom services as both the bathroom for the twin bedroom and the powder room for the living area. Casa Marilyn is decorated in a open modern style featuring original works of art by renowned Costa Rican Artist Felix Murillo.
With granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances throughout, the galley kitchen has all the amenities you will need to cook a wonderful gourmet meal.
The kitchen is separated from the dining area by a breakfast bar.
The dining and living areas are spacious and interconnected, the living area being demarked by beautiful teak flooring which contrasts with the Italian tile flooring throughout the rest of the condominium. The low rise seating area in the living room is perfect for conversation. relaxing or taking an afternoon siesta.
Floor to ceiling glass double doors from the living area open up onto the sheltered dining patio, secluded, but just a stone’s throw from the communal pool complex. Indeed the close proximity of the condominium to the pool complex is a great feature, whether you have a young family, where the kids can swim safely with the adults in close proximity or whether you are a group of adults who enjoy an evening swim in the floodlit pool without straying too far from your mojitos!
The pool complex comprises a large free form swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a paddling pool for the children and a large lanai. Due to the low population density of the development, it would not be unusual if your group had the pool complex all to yourselves for the majority of your stay.
Four hours of maid service is included in each weekly rental. Additional maid service can be provided.
Del Pacifico is situated next to one of the most spectacular beaches in all of Costa Rica and truly one of the special places on this planet. The beach stretches for miles. The surf is always spectacular. Spectacular surf on one side, palm fringed beach on the other. Truly paradise found. One can walk for hours and pass only a handful of people. If you wade across the shallow stream to the south, you will likely have a 3km beach all to yourself, save that is for the pelicans, wading birds running in and out of the surf or perhaps a sloth moving through the branches in one of the trees at the edge of the beach.
Another way to enjoy the beach is to sign up for a sunset gallop. Our House Manager Sandra can arrange horse riding for you. A favourite trek is to head into the rain forest at around 3pm, loop up onto the hills for magnificent views of the ocean before heading down to the beach for sunset.
The beach adjacent to the Del Pacifico Resort is called Playa Bejuco and faces due south. The ocean is spectacular.
Our favourite time on the beach is early morning and late afternoon. It’s a 20 minute stroll from Playa Bejuco to Del Pacifico’s sister hotel Alma del Pacifico. There is nothing nicer than taking a stroll up to the beach for breakfast at Alma del Pacifico in the open air restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Alma del Pacifico also has a fantastic spa offering an extensive menu of Costa Rican spa treatments combining professional, personal care and a beautiful seaside setting, which creates an experience of peace, wellness and rejuvenation.
What else to do at Del Pacifico?
White water rafting trips run out of Quepos (20 minutes south), for the most adventurous try the Churro river, the highest class of rapid available to tourists in Costa Rica – you are not allowed to run it in the rainy season! For the less experienced rafter try the Savegre and Naranjo rivers. The rafting company H2O is fabulous and very safety conscious.
A night out (or two) in Jaco (20 minutes north), great restaurants, fun clubs, shopping…. Something for everyone.
Go Zip lining – there are a number of zip lines in close proximity to Del Pacifico.
Sports Fishing - go catch Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi Mahi. The Costa Rica Pacific Coast is one of the top destinations in the world for sports fishing. Boats run out of Quepos and Los Suenos (30 Minutes North). You can also charter a simple fishing boat from Esterillos for a more low key fishing experience. Also fish off the beach for snook.
Take a day trip to Manuel Antonio National Park. Go hiking, swimming and nature watching in this tropical paradise. Round off your day with a eal in one of the many great restaurants to be found in the area.
The list goes on…
Or simply kick back and relax in this most special place.

I love to travel and do a lot of it, both for business and pleasure. We have visited a lot of countries over the years and we love Costa Rica.
Sam Allen purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Sam Allen chose Cantón Parrita
We were looking for a place down south for a future retirement home. We vacationed in Costa Rica and fell in love with the country. It has so much going for it! Great climate, incredible diversity, people care about their environment, it attracts interesting people as travellers. The people are very friendly. Great healthcare. The list goes on. We happened across the Del Pacifico Resort by chance, we were travelling down to Manuel Antonio for the last leg of a Costa Rican tour. We fell in love with the location. Secluded yet close enough to plenty of action. So much to do. We were totally impressed with the quality of the development and the vision of the developers. We didn't want to be part of just another gated community. Del Pacifico is much more inclusive. Del Pacifico is such a great base to visit the rest of Costa Rica and with the quality of the road system improving all the time it just keeps getting better!
What makes this Condo unique
Casa Marilyn is probably the best situated villa in the development. The large swimming pool is at the bottom of our garden. We can walk out of our villa and be in the pool in 20 seconds! and, due to the low density of the development, it is not unusual to have the pool all to ourselves. Its a five minute drive to the beach. The beach is spectacular. It goes on for miles. Its our favourite place on earth! Take an early morning stroll and you will soon be at peace with the world! Alternatively arrange to go horse riding into the rain forest. Its free for owners and their guests! Ride to the top of the hills behind Del Pacifico and you will be rewarded with spectacular views! We love to surf. We are just beginners, but just lying out there on your surfboard looking back at the palm fringed beach with the mountains behind is to die for! If you just want to watch the surfers, theres a great bar in Esterillos Oueste called the Rising Tide, right on the beach and a favourite spot for the surfing crowd. Or go to Hermosa Beach - the World Surfing Championships were held there in 2010.

Great location, pacefull, clean and verry well equiped.
Fantastic! Lovely condo, great amenities, brilliant location!
Such a great spot! The condo is just as it shows in the photos. Very spacious, clean and very high quality’. We have stayed in other places in the area and this is the best place in Esterillos by far! The swimming pool is wonderful - there is a jacuzzi and kids pool too. There are lots of great restaurants in the mini town center attached to the development plus a gym. It’s a 10 min walk to the beach or a 5 min drive at most. We loved the beach - it really is paradise! We also loved the proximity to Jaco - close enough to go in for a nice meal but far enough away not to be caught up in it all. The beach at Esterillos is soooo much nicer than the beach at Jaco. Close enough too to Quepos for great fishing and manual Antonio. Wonderful stay!!!! Sandra the manager was just lovely and so helpful. Can’t wait to go back!!
Very spacious property
This property gives a very nice overall impression. It is quite spacious and is surrounded by lovely gardens and a very nice pool area.
We are a family of 5 and de used to spend part of our Christmas vacation at the beach while in Costa Rica. The pool area is quiet and spacious enough for us to all enjoy our own little spot. The beach area is across the road from the complex. This particular beach is a bit too rough for us so we drive to Manuel Antonio, which is about 35 minutes away, and enjoyed our beach time there. The water is much calmer. It's warm and lovely. We went to both the national park which is beautiful and the public beach. We enjoyed them both but we are "beach people" so it's hard for us to be of another opinion.
As I said, overall the experience was nice, but there were some points that we didn't really like. One of them was that the person that was supposed to greet us never showed up. When we got to the guard at the complex entrance he didn't know who we were or which condo we were staying in and he didn't have the key.
Also, the unit is not kept too clean. The towels were in the dryer when we arrived and the rooms hadn't really been cleaned. The beds and pillows smelled "slept in" and though we know it's a unit with many visitors, it is nice to arrive to lean sheets and towels and freshly changed linens. I washed everything. The shower in the main bathroom leaked from the ceiling. But the most unpleasant thing was the living room sofa. It smelled HORRIBLE! We couldn't sit in it at all during our stay. That made for a little bit of discomfort for family sharing around the television or playing games. We only used the dining table and bar stools.
We hope that this review helps the owners freshen up their unt a bit before the next rental. It is quite peaceful and very pretty, but does need a little TLC in our opinion.
Beautiful house, view and neighborhood.
My family and I stayed at this house for 4 nights, we greatly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful, clean and well-mantained. The pool and the gardens are so nice. And we were just a few minutes from one of the most beautiful national parks in Costa Rica: Manuel Antonio National Park. In summary: this house is completely recommended. We are completely sure that we want to come back soon.
Comfortable and Enjoyable
My family and I really enjoyed our nice, quiet and relaxing stay. It was the perfect weekend get away. The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. My son loved the pool and the beach was nice and close. The owner and manager communicated in a timely and friendly manner. Two thumbs up!
Peaceful, Pristine, and Perfect for us!
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was so clean, well maintained, and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool right outside the patio door and we enjoyed the surfing near by. The owner was friendly and helpful as well as the property manager and the security guards. I highly recommend this rental.Thank you Sam!
