About the property

4 Bedroom 3 Bath Close to Beach and Nightlife

This remarkable, private, and comfortable 4 bedroom, 3 bath, home enjoys ocean breezes, and is in the perfect location for everything Costa Rica has to offer. (Sleeps up to 13)

This beautiful two-story home is gated and extremely safe, tastefully furnished, and makes you feel at home from the moment you enter. It features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a large, well equipped kitchen, dining room and living room.

Beautiful hardwood sliding doors open to the private patio and pool. Just down the road is a great beach for surfing, and swimming. You can walk for miles on virgin beach with scenic jungles that come right to the edge of the beach.

This home is located in the best location for whatever experience you want from Costa Rica. Night life in Jaco, world famous Manual Antonio, waterfalls, rain forests and canopy tours are all just a short drive away. The home is just a nice walk or short bike ride away from one of the most beautiful and clean, cinnamon colored sand beaches in Costa Rica. This gorgeous beach features world-class surfing, side by side with romantic coves and tide pools which are safe for even small children to play in. This beach consists of miles and miles of untouched protected shore with plentiful wildlife.

Area Information

The charming small town offers a variety of restaurants, and small well stocked supermarket. You find great atmosphere at the great local hangouts: The Barilito down at the beach and great food at Sin Rival, Tropezon and Los Almendros restaurants. Everything is within a 5 to 10 minute walk. There is frequent bus service to nearby towns of Jacó and Parrita, as well as the capital San Jose (airport) which is only 1 1/2 hours away.

Rental includes wireless internet access, cable TV, washer and dryer, private pool, outdoor BBQ area (No BBQ at this time), garden with fruit trees, garage, landscape and pool maintenance.

Why Bryan & Elisia Nielsen chose Xihu Villas

We have traveled to Costa Rica many times and fell in love with the people and the country.

We picked this area because it is close everything (Beach, Surfing, Nightlife, Shopping, Parks, Waterfalls, etc.) and is still very quiet and private. The house is a big roomy 2 story that will accommodate 2 families very easily.

What makes this house unique

This house is filled with gorgeous woodwork. Sleeps 13 has a beautiful private pool and observation deck. There is a separate TV / Computer room upstairs. Large TV in the Family Room and Smart TV’s in the master and upstairs TV room.

More than enough room for everyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great visit to Esterillos Oeste. The Neilson's home was just as advertised and served as an excellent base for our activities as well has a place to relax and enjoy the afternoon. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

This place is Awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Big roomy never felt crowded with a large group. The outside area and pool are great! The owners communicated well and gave suggestions for restaurants and tours. Esterillos Oeste is a cool little laid back Beach town. We will be coming back to Casa Nielsen!!!!

Pura Vida

Great house close to San Jose

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice and relaxing time at the property. Kate who supported our arrival was very helpful and quick to respond to our needs. The house easily accommodates large groups of people and the pool is big enough.

The beach is very near by and the location is quiet and allows to easily see birds like Guacamayas and parrots.

Owner's Response: Hello Zack Thank you for staying at Casa Nielsen. I understand that the town was working on the water system while you were visiting and the pressure was low while the work was being completed. We apologize for this but it is out of our control what the utility company does. We work hard to make this house as enjoyable as possible for our guests. Please email my personal email or call me and let me know if there were other issues besides the water pressure that we are unaware of that we can address. We are 3500 miles away and only see the property one or two times a year and rely upon constructive feedback to ensure eeryone is happy. Travel safe
