Get Away to Costa Rica

We had a wonderful time at Villa Claudia! Claudette has a lovely property–the gardens and pool are impeccable with butterflies and most daily viewings of Scarlett Macaws–delightful!! Claudette is very helpful and responsive to questions, needs, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed the “small village” atmosphere, encountered no issues and found the local residents friendly. An added bonus was meeting so many nice people from around the world who stayed at the other casita attached to Villa Claudia. The location is ideal for day trips traveling to the north/south/east (to go west you would be right in the Pacific!) with Jaco and Parritta just down the road. If you like beach front warmth without overcrowding, you are looking at the right place! Thank you for a memorable stay! We miss you, Claudette, and pets to the kitty-cats and our favorite toads 🙂

Beautiful villa!

We stayed at Villa Claudia for 4 nights and had a great time. The villa itself is so beautiful and clean – Claudette takes such good care of it! Out suite was so nice and clean – better than I expected. It had everything you need – fully stocked kitchen, AC, TV, safe etc. Very nice landscaping and courtyard with a pool and grilling areas – not big, but so cozy and relaxing. I kept thinking “I want my backyard to look like this”. Villa is a short walk to a beautiful secluded beach (our first day it was just us and another group of people surfing). Ask Claudette for boogie boards and catch some waves (we don’t surf). Claudette was a wonderful host – gave us recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area. The location is right off main road, convenient to go to Jaco and to Manuel Antonio. The only negative that I saw is safety – it seems like there are some questionable people living nearby, hence the metal bars on all windows and doors, as well as fence going all around the property. You just need to make sure to lock your car/suite and not leave anything in the open. Overall it was a lovely place and I would stay here again.

We were very fortunate to use VBRO and find this wonderfully located property. The apartment was exceptional, fully appointed, easy to move right in and use for more than one month. A rental car is useful but not necessary although our travel plans made use of one for local site=seeing. Claudia, our owner-hostess met all our needs (grocery advice, travel arrangements, local info) so we felt right at home. The location, with the beach. sunsets and ocean activities, was awesome and priceless and have provided unforgetable memories We have highly reccomended the property to our family and friends. Esterillos Centro is not fully discovered, as yet, and a great place to visit, enjoy, and have a relaxing vacation.

My new home away from home!
Claudette was a great host! The apt is perfect for one couple. If you are looking for a place away from home this is it! A/C, American Cable, Wireless Internet, Hot Showers and Cleaning services. The beach is only one minute away “walking”. Great waves for surfing and quiet beach perfect for romantic walks. Parrita town is only 10 minutes away where you can grocery stores, restaurants and night clubs then you can go back to your quiet lovely nest! You will not find a better place! I’ve found my new home away from home! Will see you soon!!!

Great spot for relaxing.
Claudette was a great host. The apartment is located a short 3-minute walk from a quiet beach with soft sand and beautiful sunsets. It is very well-maintained and beautifully appointed. It is a short drive from Carara National Park, Manuel Antonio, Jaco and other wonderful sites. Highly recommended!
