About Bobby Workman

My wife and I decided to start a new life in Costa Rica for a slower paced lifestyle and to also start a family. So, we drove with our three Basset Hounds from North Carolina down through Central America to arrive at our new home in Costa Rica in 2005. After living in the country for 6 years while raising our three daughters, we decided to move to the tourist town of Manuel Antonio and build four villas on the beach with the help of our family and friends. The Espadilla Ocean Club is a special place and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Bobby Workman purchased this villa in 2013

Why Bobby Workman chose Puntarenas

Manuel Antonio is very unique because of the geography. The town is on a mountainside that overlooks the ocean and at the end of the road is the beautiful bay, beaches and national park. There is one way in and one way out which makes it feel like the special place that it is. Our villa is extremely unique in its design and in its proximity to this very well protected beach.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is special with its waterfall showers, attention to detail, view of the ocean, proximity to the beach and amenities(no car needed), modern design and its natural setting.

Fernando and Brooke made us feel like family from the minute we arrived at this lovely property. They helped us find great places to eat, set up entertainment as well as delivered a soccer ball to our door. We loved a night with our private chef, the howler monkeys and our own personal hammock. This place was awesome!!!

EOC is a Fantastic Beach Destination!

  • 5 of 5

The hosts, Fernando and Brooke, were super friendly and helpful. The villas are new and filled with great features. We especially liked the private outdoor dining and showers. We had great views of the ocean from our upper deck and master bedroom. Cooking at the villa was convenient and the local restaurants were fantastic.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

EOC was such a great place to stay, especially because of Fernando and Brooke. They were there whenever we needed them, they gave us great recommendations for restaurants, they arranged taxis for us, they were always cheerful, they loaned us their boogie boards, and they made us feel incredibly welcome! Pura Vida!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about Espadilla Ocean Club. We loved the accommodation's. They were so clean and well designed. The kids loved the horses and monkeys in the back yard! Just a short walk to an amazing beach. The hospitality was beyond our expectation. Brooke and Fernando were wonderful. The owner's Shelly & Bobby are also a delight. I will tell all my friends there is not a better place to stay when visiting Costa Rica

EOC Stay

  • 5 of 5

Espadilla Ocean Club is a perfect option for those looking for an alternative to a hotel. The home offered enough room to sleep 4 adults comfortably and close proximity to a variety of activities. Although there are several houses on the property, they are situated in such a way to offer great privacy. The access to the beach was right out your back door. The EOC staff (Fernando and Brooke) is wonderful and helped us in planning and coordinating everything. Fernando and Brooke live on site and are always going out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We will certainly be returning to EOC in the future.

A hidden jewel

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a getaway for a few nights and happened upon this place online. The reviews convinced us that it was probably a good choice, and the risk of having a terrible time was minimal.

We were excited to be totally pleased when we arrived. There are four villas and the managers live right on the property. The staff was just wonderful and so very friendly and helpful.

We woke up each morning (the beds were comfortable!) and saw monkeys in the trees. The villas were not large, but the space was very well-designed. The kitchen and living area were downstairs and the bedrooms were upstairs. Each villa was different and the building and decor materials were so pleasing to the eye. It was relaxing to be in a fresh place that was so well thought-out. The grounds were well maintained. Each villa had a small splash pool, very clean, with an outside sitting area covered with a thatched roof. There was no television, but the outside was so enticing, we didn't need one.

The property was secure and fenced, and about a one minute walk to the beach. There aren't any structures between the property and the sand, just about 200 feet of grass, so you really are about as close to the beach as you can get. You can walk one minute, put a beach towel on the sand and watch the sun glow as it sets.

It is about a two minute drive to the state park. Lots of restaurants within a five minute drive. We just relaxed, but our daughter and her friend went on a dive, surfed, swam, and rode horses to a waterfall.
