“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Pamela's beach home is as close as possible to the proverbial paradise we all want to experience on a vacation.
The house is located in Esterillos central, which literally sits a few feet above the high water mark on the beach.
The house is set up for comfort and practical beach use as the living area and kitchen afford room and all that you need to prepare your own meals.
The bedrooms and bath are clean and comfortable with beds that support you in healthy fashion.
The front porch has a table and chairs for dining and lounges and hammock for relaxation fronting a beautiful beach.
Claudette, the manager, is a sweet woman who lives down the street and is always on call and is completely responsive to your needs.
I stayed there with my son and grandson; both of whom are experienced surfers.
They loved the fact that they could walk from the porch and in a few moments be up and riding their boards.
There are several restaurants within minutes of the house that serve fine food.
When all is said and done... I don't know how you would better the dollar value of this wonderful vacation home.
My family will return happily in the near future.
Warm regards
Mr. Content

Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your time at our house. If you return...take advantage of our return visitor discount. I love the idea of a microwave...and will give some thought where to put it in or near the kitchen.
Again ...it makes me very happy to know you and your family had fun!! Pamela

“Perfect! lovely!”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Pamela: Your home is perfect, everything you say on your website is correct, you have a nice kitchen with everything you need, your bedrooms are lovely, with aircondion, also hot water in the bathroom and most important good lightening thoughout your home, I just wish we could have stay longer, but me and my husband will be back for a longer stay.. I forgot your garden in front of the house, is very nice, and the view of the ocean is very nice. Also I love the neighbor's dogs who come to visit us, and stay with us for a while.

Again, thank you for a lovely stay, I am going to recommend your home to my friends.

“Lost in Esterilla Centro”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our five night stay. The location in Esterilla Centro is of the beaten path enough that it felt as though we were embedded in a small seaside community, but still close enough to Jaco to get in some shopping, if that's your thing. The casita is one of a few houses almost at the end of the dirt road. The interior is simple but functional, the kitchen is adequately equipped, and the house is kept quite clean. Two adults and one or two children would fit OK. It was fine for the two of us. The front porch area is great, a good size and well stocked with lounging furniture and a charcoal grill that we used to cook the mackerel we caught Inshore fishing with Miner in his panga. The house is literally just a few steps from the beach. Perhaps because we were there in in off season it was very quiet, even on the weekends (except for when we first first arrived as a large film crew was set up and shooting). The beautiful five kilometer long beach was usually empty unless we walked up to E. Oeste. Then you may see a few surfers and eco-tourists along with local and visiting Ticos. Take care in the water; the surf can be quite punishing, there a strong tidal and rip currents, and there is no lifeguard. E. Oeste has a guard on weekends. After a day of settling in it seemed that all we wanted to do was hang out on the porch or walk along the beach and watch the waves roll in. Exactly what we were looking for. This property is very good value for money.
