Costa Rica Adventure

  • 5 of 5
Hilltop House was a wonderful setting for our 8 day family vacation in Costa Rica. The house was peaceful, secluded, and had fantastic views! The third floor deck offered a view of surrounding forests and the ocean. It was breezy and beautiful! From our hammocks, we could see toucans, macaws, monkeys, and even a sloth nearby! The second floor had a rocking chair porch with bar and TV/Game room. It was perfect for nighttime fun with the entire family! The pool area was secluded with fences and beautiful landscaping. It offered hours of entertainment after a day of hiking in the area, horseback riding, or visiting the rain forests. The nearby beaches had tidal pools, surfing areas, and wildlife in trees. Ellen and Brent, the owners, were welcoming and helpful. It was an enjoyable experience for the entire group!

Du fun en masse, la place est vraiment hot !!

  • 5 of 5
Wow que ça été plaisant !! Première expérience au Costa Rica et pas la dernière. On a été très bien acceuilli par le proprio Brent. Ça été très facile dès le début des démarches. On est arrivé et tout était prêt comme prévu, aucune mauvaise surprise.

L'endroit est vraiment cool autant pour une famille ou pour des jeunes qui veulent faire le party et partir sur la brosse. À 4min 30sec de marche de la plage ;) c'est vraiment bien situé. On a énormément profité de la piscine qui était toujours chaude. Des chambres bien isolées et climatisées. La petite suite est parfaite pour recevoir des amis comme c'est arrivé dans notre cas. Sinon, une superbe terrasse sur le toit pour faire du Yoga le matin ou pour tout simplement pour regarder la nature et les couchers de soleil dans les hammacks. (couchers de soleil sur la plage vraiment fous, plus beaux jamais vu pour ma part)

L'endroit est très sécuritaire, il y a une gates électrique à l'entrée avec 2 places de stationnement dans le garage. Sinon, on laissait toujours nos guitares dehors même quand on partait à l'extérieur sans le moindre soucis.

Le village de Esterillos Oeste est quand même bien. Il y a un supermarché pour se dépanner et 3 bars pour se rafraichir. 2-3 petits restos sympa, 2 écoles de surf. On a utilisé les services de Brett pour l'occasion qui nous a ammené à Estrillos Este pour surfer, ça été vraiment cool ! On a aussi été à la pêche avec un local de là bas qui tient un des restaurants, c'était très bien aussi. Demandez toutes ces infos à Brent et il pourra vous indiquer le tout sans problème.

Au final, ça été un super beau trip et je le reccommande à tout le monde. À faire et refaire !!

I definitley recommend to anyone wanting to get away for some r and r.

Amazing place and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Hilltop House over Thanksgiving week, with 2 families totaling 10 people.
We had a fantastic time, and the house is even more unbelievable than it looks in the pictures. The layout was great for us, with the side apartment over the garage providing a measure of privacy and independence for a couple or small family, and the 2nd floor of the main house providing a hang-out area for a large group. The kitchen was well equipped and easily handled our party. An amazing feature of the place is the 3rd floor terrace over the side apartment; incredible view and lots of bird life to watch (including the occasional monkeys). There's nothing like starting your day with a cup of Tico coffee and heading up to the rooftop to slide into a hammock or watch birds through the binocs! The beach is a 3 minute walk down the road, and about 10 minutes to the 'center' of town and the main beach there. Esterillos Oueste is a wonderful, laid back little town with friendly people and a decent surfing beach. Make sure to try the Los Almendros restaurant for dinner some night, and hit the Rancho Coral for a great breakfast on the beach.
Our hosts Brent and Ellen were fantastic, always available to help us with tips and advice when needed, but otherwise they clearly go out of their way to be hands off. They take wonderful care of the place and are just special people. You will definitely enjoy this place!

Fantastic Home and Location

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic home and location. Arrived on the 23 of Oct. Stayed for 12 days and nights. Best vacation home we have ever rented. Party of 7. Plenty of room and the pool was great. Brent the owner even arranged for us to have a house keeper for 2 days, she was awesome. Esterillos is a great area to kick back and relax. We based out of the home and went on many little day trips. It was always nice to return the the house at night and relax by the pool. Brent could not have been more accommodating. He answered all questions and even made recommendations, very helpful. We highly recommend The Hilltop House. Looking forward to returning next year....

fabulous vacation in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5
Spent 7 days in this beautiful home and the only regret is we didn't have another week. We had 7 adults (5 being young adults). The house was very comflortable and the above garage apartment worked excellent for our needs. Everything about the property is immaculate. From the well kept home to the pool and the well maintained grounds. We spent many hours in the 2nd floor entertainment room watching movies on the tv and many more leisure hours on the 3rd floor observation deck. With the hammocks to relax in you could stay there for hours watching for macaws, monkeys, the waves as they rolled into shore and the mountains.
The town of Esterillos is such a quaint spot. The locals are very helpful and friendly. With the super sol for quick groceries, restaurants for the days you don't want to cook, and the beach, if you want to just lay back and relax, this is the perfect place.
For those who need alittle more activity Jaco is about 20 minutes north. It has shopping, many eateries and the night life for those who are looking for that. Manuel Antonio is south of Esterillos and is worth the drive to see the beauty at the park. Be sure and have a meal at The Avion. Ask about the history of the plane. Los Suenos golf and zip line are both close to the area and offer a day of fun on the greens and zipping through the trees. The scenery is just wonderful. We took a waterfall tour out of Jaco and spent a day trekking through the rain forrest to some outstanding waterfalls.
Brent couldn't have been a more excellent host. He is always ready to offer information or book tours. He arranged to have a meal brought in for us one night. Just anything you need. He went out of his way to make this one of our most enjoyable vactions. Even has a maid that comes in and cleans up one day. Very nice. Just can't say enough.
Would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to experience the beauty of Costa Rica, the sounds of the ocean in the comfort of a wonderful home. It far superceded our expectations!!!
We understand Pura Vida.
