Transportation to Casa de Abuela

Casa de Abuela is a custom home built on a quarter-acre lot overlooking the rain forest. It has a large swimming pool and is just a five-minute walk from the beach. It is located in a neighborhood that overlooks Esterillos Oeste, a small village on the central Pacific coast. The neighborhood itself is situated on the top of a ridge and consists of 10 – 12 custom homes, most of which are owned by American or Canadian families that live there permanently.

The house features a bedroom wing and a great room separated by a two-story open-air hall. There are four bedrooms, each with its own private bath and air conditioning. Two of the bedrooms accommodate a family of four with a double bed and a set of bunk beds, all made by a local carpenter of Costa Rican cedar. The upstairs bedrooms also have external entrances for privacy.

The hall is over two stories high, providing cool breezes even on the hottest day. The great room has a cathedral ceiling and three sets of double doors for air circulation. One set leads out on to the large front porch, providing a perfect setting for morning coffee and bird watching. The kitchen area has a large island for cooking and serving. The dining area has a table that seats 12. Like the bedrooms, the great room is also air-conditioned.


You can go to Jaco Beach just 15 minutes where you can find casinos, fine dining, sushi restaurants, and jazz bars. You can also get a massage or shop for souvenirs.

There are many exciting things to do from Oeste, all within an hour or less drive from the house. For example, you can go to Manuel Antonio, one of the finest national parks in CR, go white water rafting, ride the ‘zip’ lines over the rain forest, go deep-sea fishing, or take a monkey tour in a mangrove swamp.
