The whole house, and amenities, private pool
Interaction with Guests
Guests have the house to themselves, as I do not live there, but there is a caretaker to greet guests and who oversees the place.
Friendly village, with a local supermarket and a few good restaurants, and local beach bar. You can buy fish directly from the fishermen nearby.
There are public buses nearby.
Respect the house, the amenities, and the neighbors please. There is a caretaker on site, and I provide a welcome booklet to help with emergency numbers and other useful information about the house and neighborhood.
La maison est très bien située dans le village, juste à l'extérieure de la rue principale plus bruyante. La maison est grande, calme et la piscine est très appréciée pour les après-midi très chauds. Aussi, Norlan, le conjoint de la femme de ménage, était d'une aide extraordinaire.
À notre arrivée, le ménage était très sommaire à un point tel que nous avons dû le refaire nous même... Notez que rien n'est fourni, il vous faudra donc fournir papier de toilette, sacs de poubelles, savon à vaisselle, savon à linge et nettoyants pour la maison. Certains éléments (lumières, petits électroménagers de cuisine et serrures de porte) ne fonctionnaient ni à notre arrivée, ni à notre départ, après 6 semaines... Une liste détaillée avait été donnée à la propriétaire le 3e jour. Cette maison a besoin d'un gros rafraichissement et de quelques travaux qui lui donnerait justice et profiterait aux utilisateurs d'Airbnb.
Je déconseille donc la location de cette maison, non pas pour la maison elle même mais pour le risque que court le locataire si un élément de la maison venait qu'à briser pendant son séjour. Nous avons dû nous battre (et avoir l'aide d'Airbnb) pour ne pas payer la réparation de la laveuse lorsqu'elle a brisée durant notre séjour.
À vous de voir et bon séjour au Costa-Rica malgré tout!
These clients came on the tail of a group who were there only a week, who said that the place was perfect. They were provided a 4 page welcome booklet which detailed everything about the house, directions, what it included, contact and emergency information, and little tips about the area and what to do if something went wrong. This is a private house, and although we do everything we can to ensure that the place is clean and that guests have a pleasant and uneventful stay, it is not a hotel.
They were provided a good price and were even facilitated with a driver to pick them up from the airport. They had been told that the maid might still be there upon their arrival side they were arriving on the same day, but they asked her to leave before she was completely finished. They were provided the same as everybody else, a couple of rolls of toilet paper to start them off, but not as they expected: salt, sugar, laundry soap, cleaning products, and more toilet paper for the duration of their 40 day trip. They broke the toaster, and the ceiling fan light on their second day, and it was dealt with immediately with no blame. Their list of things that did not work does not exist. They broke the washing machine second week in and denied it was their fault, and made a complaint to airbnb about it, who ended up only partly compensating me for it even though the caretaker and the repairman insisted that the only way it could have broken was because of their misuse. They were disrespectful, and left my house a huge mess that it took my maid 10 hours to clean, with several broken things (including the dryer seal which was completely ripped out and left discarded in the sink), that they didn't bother even telling us about and then denied it tall even though it cost me well over $300 to repair it all. I had other guests arrive the following day and they wrote:
"Leyla was very helpful and gave us a great tour of the house. She is very sweet. We weren't able to catch the ferry from Paquera yesterday until 2 and we didn't get off the ferry until 4, so we really got in much later than expected. Just to let you know the house is very clean and organized, the yard and pool pristine. " They had a great time and were extremely satisfied. In the 6 years that I have been renting my house, I have had many positive comments such as this one,
but I have never had an experience like with Guillaume and Anais and have never had to make a claim before.
Nous avons passé plusieurs semaines à la casa Esterillos Oasis. Ce séjour fut séjour extraordinaire. La maison est grande et comprend toutes les commodités. La chambre des maîtres est spacieuse avec des beaux meubles et un lit queen très confortable. Dans deux des chambres il y a des énormes garde-robes ce fut très pratique. La cuisine est fonctionnelle. La piscine a été must dans ce coin de pays où il fait toujours beau et chaud. Elle a toujours été bien entretenue pendant notre séjour. La très grande galerie (avec le hamac!) et le barbecue sur charbon de bois sous un toit de bambou ont été un de nos coups de cœur. La végétation entourant la piscine et la maison est luxuriante et sublime. À la maison nous avons vu régulièrement des aras rouges, des singes et une multitude d’oiseaux.
Le village d’Esterillos Oeste est un petit village accueillant principalement de Tico. Il y a une petite épicerie très complète dans le village. Nous avons beaucoup aimé le restaurant Los Almendros, le thon est succulent. Il y a aussi une bonne pizzéria sur four à bois directement sur la plage. Une bonne adresse pour se prélasser après une journée de surf. Nous avons aussi beaucoup aimé la tranquillité de la plage, peu de gens durant la semaine, seulement quelques pêcheurs et surfeurs. Nous y avons vu des levers et des couchers de soleil mémorables!
La propriétaire Yolanda a été très gentille. Elle a été disponible pour répondre rapidement à nos questions et nos besoins avant et pendant notre voyage.
Ce fut un repos total sous les tropiques… le Costa Rica à son meilleur!
We spent a few weeks at the casa Esterillos Oasis. This stay was wonderful experience. The house is spacious and includes all utilities. The master bedroom is very great with nice furnishings and a very comfortable queen bed. In two rooms there are huge wardrobes. The kitchen is functional. The pool was a must in this part of the country where it is always sunny and warm. It has always been well maintained during our stay. The vast gallery (with hammock!) and barbecue on charcoal under a bamboo roof was one of our favorite. Vegetation surrounding the pool and the house is lush and sublime. At home we have seen regularly arras rouges, monkeys and many birds.
The village of Esterillos Oeste is a small village consisting mainly of Tico. There is a small grocery store very well stocked. We loved the Los Almendros restaurant, tuna is delicious. There is also a good pizzeria on wood oven directly on the beach. A good place to relax after a day of surfing. We also loved the tranquility of the beach, few people during the week, only a few fishermen and surfers. We saw the sunrise and unforgettable sunsets!
The owner Yolanda was very nice. It was available to respond quickly to our questions and needs before and during our trip.
It was a very great vacation in the tropics!
