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.

Best bang for your buck on CR's best beach!

  • 5 of 5

If you're beach bums like us, the EOC is perfect! The beach is long, soft, wide, and gorgeous. The condos are very well put together and make the most of the space available. Monkeys, iguanas, and horses roam the field leading to the beach and you'll find plenty of crabs on the beach, day and night. There's an abundance of restaurants nearby and Manuel Antonio is great hub for adventure. Make sure you go to Nauyaca Falls, my favorite adventure of our two week trip! See if they have the option available where they take you to the falls in the back of the truck. Fer and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. Have them buy groceries fro you ahead of time. We stayed at 4 amazing places in CR, but if we could only choose one to go back to, this would be it!

Awesome Location with Amazing Service

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Costa Rica and it will not be our last. We traveled with our children (ages 6 & 8) and also with another couple with two children the same ages. We stayed in villas next to one another so the families were together with enough separation and privacy if we wanted it. The splash pools were a hit with the kids as they spent countless hours playing in them before and after the quick walk to the beach out the back gates. The kids also loved the monkeys in the canopy above our outdoor shower and the sloth that was in a tree over the office.

I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners Shelley one morning and she gave me some background and insight into their vision when they started building the project. I always find that sort for history fascinating.

The staff did a very good job keeping the property up and accommodating our needs. The real hero's of this property are Brooke and Fernando. From the upfront emails with recommendations and suggestions to clarifications on transportation, currency exchange, etc we felt very prepared for the journey. Upon arrival they provided a welcome orientation and got us settled in after a long day of travel with kids. They were very helpful throughout the stay and help make the property what it is.

Christmas in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to EOC, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Our family of four stayed in the "Air" villa this time, and we could have easily fit one or two more kids. Air has an outdoor shower attached to the downstairs powder room, and each shower was memorable: purple flowered vines and monkeys swinging through trees high over our heads! We felt perfectly safe and well cared for---Brooke and Fer arranged amazing day trips for us---waterfalls to slide down, beach caves to explore, surfing & zip--line expeditions. But our favorite thing was just hanging at the villa, walking to the market to buy fresh mangos, avocados, pineapples and fish and then cooking up a storm! They recommended the best restaurants, many we could just walk along the beach to access. They arranged a fishing trip for my son and husband, and they caught a huge Schnook and 2 red snappers, which we cooked on the grill, made fish tacos, and had enough to eat all week and share with our friends we made at EOC. It was the best vacation ever, and we already decided that we will rent the whole thing out for my son's wedding in the future. Thanks for everything!
