Close to Jaco and Manuel Antonio. There is good surf at the beach down below as well as in the adjacent beaches with beach and point brakes. There are a great variety restaurants with the famous local restaurant Los Almendros on the top of the list.
The house catches the ocean breezes being on top of the hill. Walking north along the beach you will find an unspoiled beauty with the jungle touching the ocean and many times you will see monkeys. At low tide there are rocky points sticking out up to one kilometer into the ocean with waves braking into blowholes bringing up large water spouts.
Being located on the Central Pacific coast you will be close to all the attractions Costa Rica has to offer.
The new auto-pista to San Jose makes visiting the natural attractions around the Central Valley and the shopping centers in Santa Ana and Escazu very fast and easy.
The road from here south is newly paved and it now only takes 40 minutes to get to Manuel Antonio national park and 3 hours to the OSA peninsula and the southern zone.
To navigate around Costa Rica by car you can use (website hidden) maps or Waze (very popular and accurate here).
Buses north and south stop in the center of Esterillos Oeste 5 minute walk from the house or on the highway just outside of the village.

Interaction with Guests
I live next door and I have a cell phone so I can be of assistance pretty much when needed.
All our neighbors are friendly and I love the fact that we are a bit more private up on our hill but still very close to a wonderful beach great for boogie boarding, surfing and walking. Depending on the tide and which direction you walk on the beach, you have good chance of seeing monkeys scarlet macaws morpho butterflies and all kind of sea birds .
There are buses from San Jose a few times a day and some will take you into the village and other ones will drop you off at the junction by the highway
Other Things to Note
Esterillos Oeste has a couple really good restaurants as well as yummy home made ice cream.
No smoking in the house.
For the positive, the place was great because of the pool, the A/C cause it was really hot at this time of the year and the enormous space inside of the house. I saw parrots (guacamayas) in liberty flying across to the beach for the first time in my life! It was everything that was announced in the post.
We had an absolutely amazing time at Casa Velas last week! Although Brigitte was out of town during our stay, she arranged for a neighbor to be in contact with us and meet us at the house upon our arrival. The house had everything we needed: well stocked kitchen, clean linens, pool towels, and a helpful handbook with clear instructions and tips for our stay. The views from the house are spectacular, especially sunrise from the master bedroom! We loved being able to walk to the beach, local restaurants, and markets. I highly recommend Casa Velas to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing home away from home in Costa Rica!
We had an amazing time at Casa Velas! Brigitte was a wonderful host made the booking and check in process very simple. The house has everything you will need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The views are spectacular and the location is very convenient! We loved being able to walk to the beach, local restaurants, and market. We also made trips to neighboring towns of Jaco (20mins) and Quepos (40mins) for zip lining and finishing! I would 100% recommend Casa Velas to anyone looking for a home away from home in Costa Rica! Thank you, Brigitte!!
The place is lovely and clean and we spent there some nice days. Brigitte wasn't in town but she arranged that the neighbour was there to warmly welcome us. Thank you.
Wir verbrachten schöne Tage in Brigittes Haus. Da sie abwesend war, begrüsste uns der Nachbar sehr herzlich und gab uns Tipps betreffend Aktivitäten, Stränden usw. Vielen Dank
Esterillos es un lugar maravilloso, donde se pueden hacer caminatas por la extensa playa, en un ambiente muy lindo y seguro.
Casa Velas tiene todo lo que uno espera de una quinta de ensueño en la playa, donde se pueden pasar vacaciones con paz, tranquilidad y a la vez actividad en la piscina. El acceso es fácil y tiene la privacidad que se necesita para estar con tranquilidad y a la vez armonía con la naturaleza. Es amplia, segura, con todas las comodidades para cocinar.
Y para hacer la amalgama perfecta, la atención desde el primer día que contacte a Bigitte hasta entregar las llaves a Rob fue más que excelente. Pequeños o grandes detalles los solucionan de inmediato. El idioma aunque no fuera el mismo, en ningún momento fue un obstáculo. No dudaría en ningún momento en volver, recomendado 100%. Cinco estrellas no son suficientes para calificar la preciosa Casa Velas.
Más que agradecida con todas las atenciones.
I, my wife, and three kids (two younger, one older) stayed for a week and we loved every minute! The house is a perfect mix of secluded and right in the middle of where we wanted to be. Restaurants 5 minutes away, the beach is just a walk down the hill, and wonderful attractions within 30-45 minutes away.
The house itself was just what we needed. The pool was a *huge* hit with the kids and it was a perfect size. Brigitte made sure we were all set and after the initial introduction to the place we were all set. I would highly recommend staying at Casa Velas.
The house is amazing, private and it has everything someone need. The place and the zone are perfect to relax, it has many places to walk and neighbors are king people, near you can visit Playa Bejuco, Playa Esterillos Centro or Esterillos Oeste. I will come back soon.
