Esterillos Oeste is the ideal vacation destination community of choice in Costa Rica. Starting out as a small fishing village on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, Esterillos Oeste is rapidly becoming the most desirable beach in Costa offering dark sand beaches, small fishing boats on the beach, green palm trees overhanging the beach, a sea turtle preserve and a consistently good surf break with many other world class breaks within a few minutes drive. This is truly a paradise!
This Villa is located about 75 feet from the ocean, 20 minutes south of Jaco on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is a 1 1/2 hour drive from the International Airport in San Jose and it is in a very small development named Rocamar Villas. There are four buildings and a guard's quarters along with a beautiful pool. All owners are absentee owners and there is a good chance that you will have it all to yourself. A full time security guard is present and we are fenced and gated. A large statue of the mermaid 'Serena' stands in the ocean to look over the fisherman and yes... you can buy fish right off the boats and grill them on your roof top observation deck. Our two favorite places for food and drinks are the Almendros and El Vagos...both are great.
Our Villa has 1 large bedroom (queen size bed) and two baths with showers. We also have large custom futon. Marble floors, granite counter tops, fully equipped kitchen and a laundry room in our villa makes for a comfortable, easy vacation. For your use we have air Conditioning, cable TV, high speed computer service, wifi, and fishing equipment.
The property is maintained 24 hrs a day by our security/ pool guy/ grounds keeper. Your comfort and safety are never compromised at Rocamar Villas.

About rick shiver
Rick lives in Daytona Beach, Fl, A retired firefighter that loves to surf and fish has found costa rica to be a perfect fit.
rick shiver purchased this Villa in 2005
Why rick shiver chose Esterillos Oeste
In 2002 I visited Costa Rica and fell in love with the people and culture. I found myself returning again and again. Tiring of hotels and restaurant food, I decided to buy. My first visit here, a scarlet Macaw landed beside me and began eating almond off of the picnic table. I knew that this would be my second home.
What makes this Villa unique
Sunrises at around 5AM. Grab a cup of coffee and sit on our rooftop deck to watch the beach come to life. We have THE BEST view of the beach and beautiful, birds, iguanas and surrounding area. The surf out front is great. A 1 hour walk to Punta Mala (bad point) is an experience you will treasure forever.

thank you Kenneth. so glad you enjoyed your stay with us
Great location in a little village
Wonderful villa, very spacious and clean. Beautiful pool and property. Steps away from the beach and ocean.
Rick was always available to answer any questions we may have. Provided all instructions ahead of time. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay!
Spent 8 nights here and could have spent more. The villa itself is well equipped with kitchen dishes, pans, utensils, bedding(could use a few more pillows). Pool was quiet and lounge chairs perfect for morning/evening reading. Walks on the beach perfect, definitely had to do early or later. Super Mercado very close, along with a variety of excellent restaurants to choose from. Also close enough for day trips to Manuel Antonio National Park. The upstairs patio was perfect for beach watching with beverages! Surfing was a must to watch, if not do. Best waves seen in a long time!
Wonderful comfortable space. Easy access to pool and beach. Rooftop deck a great view.
We have enjoyed this condo two years in a row and plan to return. Clean and grounds are well maintained. A safe environment in a gated secure area and caretaker on property.
AC in unit, good hot water pressure and basic amenities make it a homey experience. Minute to beach access, beautiful views from roof deck make thus a welcome rental. Owner is accessible by email and helpful. Caretaker does not speak English but is friendly and we managed to communicate our needs. She is quick to respond to any needs. It is close to four local restaurants, great location beteeen Jaco and Quepos for sightseeing. Parrita is a short drive for shopping and in Esterilios Oueste the small market around the corner has everything you might need.
Such a GREAT place!
We fell in love with Esterillos Oeste (OE)and RocaMar Villas! Meeting several of the locals really made our stay special. Laura gives the best massage ever! Shannon bakes amazing cinnamon rolls and bread! Dolvek and Ella are a delightful Polish couple who stay 3 months every year and were so much help! Many locals come buy selling fish. The ceviche we bought was the best we've ever had! Rick and Ginny's villa is very comfortable! There are only 7 units in RocaMar. It's gated, very safe, and pristeenely kept up by the caretaker, Tracy. The pool is fabulous and extremely clean at all times. At first it seems very odd to see the bed in the kitchen area, but that frees up a very nice TV/lounging area. The air conditioners work great! The WiFi and TV work great! Rick and Ginny provide lots of towels and bedding and a great washer/dryer. The kitchen is very small, but has everything you need if you WANT to cook. There are very few spices, etc. so if you're going to cook a lot you'll need to bring your own. (Also bring/buy foil, plastic wrap, baggies, paper towels, and trash bags.) The highlight of this particular villa is the covered rooftop patio. We spent every evening up there watching the waves crash, some mornings with coffee, and a few great naps or reading in the large hammock. We liked the hammock so much we bought a similar one to take home! They also have a large bench up there you can move to face the ocean. The beach is beautiful and you can walk as far as you want to. We especially enjoyed walking past the Serena mermaid statue and then soaking in the shallow warm tide pools on the way back! Our only criticism would be that there were 7 dogs there when we got there! (One family had 3 little dogs that barked constantly when they were away from the villa.) We don't hate dogs, but we don't have pets and it was a bit annoying to be awakened every morning by barking dogs rather than waves or birds or monkeys. Also, we found out the hard way that you need to watch where you step. Rick was a wonderful owner/host and always answered questions promptly. We would definitely return to EO and this villa! The Pura Vida lifestyle is contagious and we hope to keep the attitude going when we get home!
My family of 3 had a great time. The house has everything you need. The town is nice, the beaches are awesome, the Scarlet macaws hang out in all the trees surrounding the property, and the roof top deck is the best seat in town. We used the deck a lot during our stay. We bbq and my husband surfed right in perfect sight from the roof top deck. The beach to the right of the condo was succlued and private while to the left was a very busy and public beach. Best of both worlds! I loved that the town is not too touristy. We bought snapper right off the beach just caught. Great way to bring in the new year!
thank you for visiting RocaMar. We are always thrilled to read our reviews. Please come stay again.
