We have owned this property for 8 years now and have decided to start renting it out on occasion.
This house is on the Central Pacific.....in the small village of Esterillos Oeste...About 10 min South of Jaco.... a 1 1/2 hour drive from the San Jose airport on the new hiway......Less than 45 minutes drive from us, South, is Manuel Antonio State Park...exploration, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, wildlife, sunset cruises, white sand beaches..........20 minutes North of us is Carrera State Park, with hiking, bird watching, wildlife, flowers, etc.... We also have a zip line tour about 10 minutes North of us with breathtaking views of the tree top canopies and of the Pacific coast line. Watch the Macaws fly by on warm coastal breezes as you sail thru the tree tops.
This 2 bedroom house is very secure, and we have the American caretakers, Dave and Kate, living close by to help you with your needs....The house is located in a very nice family neighborhood...the yard is fenced and gated, for your security. Also room for parking for the rental car. It's very quiet here, with a private jungle setting, although you can hear the surf from the front patio....we have a land line there for local calls, and also have Cable TV, internet, and Skype availability......AC thru-out....Also a fully stocked house, with all linens, utensils, blender, coffee maker, laundry, etc...with 2 new Pillow-Topped Queen beds...And a futon for overflow.
We are fortunate to have a beach that runs East, and West, and consequently, we get sunrise, and sunset....This is a Bandera Azul beach...a designation given by the Costa Rican government as a biologically clean beach....in this little village, are 8-10 restaurants, 2 grocery stores, 2 fish markets, 3-4 outdoor beach food/beer sales, a bakery, meat market, soccer field...church, and more....all within a 2-7 minute walk.....You really don't need a car to get around the village.
The beach is shallow at our end, so we have rocks, and tide pools. Further down the beach, the water drops off quicker, so surfing is excellent.....a great beach for kids of all ages...some mornings, we will get up early, and buy fish from the locals that come in after a morning of fishing...the Corvina (sea bass), is excellent...also you can buy, Tuna, Red Snapper, and Lobster.... Perfect for the built in BBQ, under the covered patio. Be sure to grab a refreshment and watch the sunset, or get up early and watch the sunrise.
