About Eric Carvajal

My Father was born and raised in Costa Rica but currently resides in San Antonio, TX. He purchased the lot approx. 15 years ago with the idea to one day build his dream beach home . After 3 years of designing and planning, he finally began construction on this Costa Rican masterpiece, . The intention was never to rent the house and all of the furnishings are very high end and purchased for personal use. We would love to share our family home with yours!

Why Eric Carvajal chose Herradura

We purchased this lot about 15 years ago because of the view. You will not find a better setting in Costa Rica. We constructed our dream home on the lot about 9 years ago and we could not ask for anything better. The neighborhood is gated and very private and safe for our family. Also, the homes in the neighborhood are primarily owned by Costa Rican families so we get a true cultural immersion while we stay there and keep far enough away from the touristy type crowds in the main resort areas.

What makes this house unique

Best view in Costa Rica. Private beach in neighborhood. Scarlett Macaws, monkeys, iguanas, you name it, right in our back yard

**Extra services can be added through Piko Travel. Contact us for more information

So beautiful, relaxing, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We love it! The location is amazing for everything we wanted to do in Costa Rica: beaches, zip-lining, hiking, and waterfalls. The house is unbelievably beautiful. As beautiful as the photos are of this place, they are nothing compared to being there. I can’t say enough great this about this place and the people who take care of it. We’ll be back again for sure.

Wonderful property!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the property!! The views are stunning!! The house was great. We were 3 families and it worked out perfectly for us. There were monkeys and birds every morning. The outside living space was gorgeous.

Maureen and Donald took really excellent care of the property and us and made our stay wonderful.

Wow, just wow! This is an amazing property! Arriving in Costa Rica we took a private shuttle that was booked through Piko Travel(more about Piko shortly). A little bit of a hike but well worth it. As we pulled into the Los Suenos Resort the suspense was killing us. Up a steep mountain and back down staring at some of the most beautiful views our group has seen. But where is Casa Carvajal? Heading back up a mountain just on the other side of the marina we arrived at the house lit up by outdoor lighting! Donald(the best groundskeeper in Los Suenos) had the double doors wide open and you could see the most spectacular view overlooking the infinity pool! There are scarlet macaws flying over and monkeys hanging out in the trees all day. Carlos the iguana was probably a crowd favorite as he would sunbath with us during the day. The housekeeper Maureen was excellent! She keeps the place very clean and can cook breakfast with a local flair if you purchase groceries. Main part of the house is open air and all bedrooms have AC. Transportation can be tough if you do not have a rental. Lindsay at Piko booked golf carts for us to get back and forth from the marina/restaurants. We found ourselves not wanting to the leave the property as the vibe was very relaxing!

But why hang out at the house the entire time when there is so much to see in Costa Rica. Piko Travel really come through for us! There are tons of activities to choose from and this team makes it easy to book each one. Our activities included fishing twice, zip line, ATV tour, surf lessons, dinner in Jaco, golf and an awesome sunset catamaran cruise. They can also provide transportation for each one. Reach out to Piko for any recommendations.

Our group has been to Dominican Republic, Mexico, Turks and Caicos and now Costa Rica. This trip exceeded all of our expectations and it all started with the casa! If you are trying to decide where to stay look no further. Hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did!
