Right on the beach! Quiet town, Esterillos Centro.

“This is a small, simple beach house that is right on the beach in a pretty quiet area. You have a small dirt road to cross and you are right on the sand. The price is excellent for basically having the beach to yourself. The neighbor and the neighborhood have quite a few free roaming dogs so if you are not an animal lover, you may want to look elsewhere (then again nearby towns also have free roaming dogs!) =D. We went during August so the ocean was quite mixed up. However, right in front of the hotel nearby is considered a good surf spot. The spot right in front of the house is pretty good for swimming but I recommend bringing boogie fins because of the strong currents. There were boogie boards available when we stayed, which was quite nice. We rented longboards from Brett in Esterillos Oeste (also a good surf spot), nice guy. The hotel/restaurant within walking distance has a pool table and great food. First time trying snook/robalo! House is not too far of a drive from Jacó or Manuel Antonio. Some advice: I highly recommend bringing good mosquito repellant. Also, you are very close to an estuary which is nice to walk through. Pamela and Claudette are very pleasant to talk to. Thanks again“.
You’re looking for tranquility, serenity, peacefulness …

Pros: We just got back from spending a month in what turned out to be a little paradise. if you want peace and quiet in a small fisherman’s village, look no further. The house is about 50 feet from the beach, you can see the ocean while preparing your sunset rhum punch. If you’re into eating fresh fish, the local fisherman is about 300 feet from the house and can supply you every day with freshly caught red snapper. We have been all over Costa Rica and have rented beach houses on a lot of different beaches and all I can tell you is that this house is different. The quietness of the surroundings makes it very special for us. The place is managed by a French Canadian woman who really takes to heart the well-being of her customers. At one point, I called her complaining about a water faucet that was not working properly, within 5 minutes, her handyman was at the house evaluating the problem and within the hour he was back with a replacement faucet, we were really impressed. She is an extremely helpful woman and will answer any request you might have in a very quick manner. Just before leaving, we made a reservation for another month next year. Cons: If you are looking for action and want to go out and party every night, this place is not for you.”

We would love to stay at this house again! Perfect location, helpful and very nice neighbors, the cleaning lady even did our laundry for us!!! The fisherman close by brings his “catch of the day” daily, there’s nothing like fresh fish in the bbq!! We could either go out real close by and have a great breakfast for around $4 or just buy bacon and eggs at Esterillos Oeste and cook our own…Our only suggestion is, if you like to watch tv bring your own movies, there are only a couple of Spanish channels but even those had very poor reception. We already miss the sound of the waves just right accross the way…
