About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The full patio and deck looks out to the Esterillos Oeste beach directly in front of this spectacular home. The three bedrooms are all on the second floor with balconies off of each room overlooking the beach.

The spacious deck offers a private pool for cooling off after an afternoon of surfing, shelling, or just walking on the spectacular beach.

About Danny Bishko and Felipe Bermudez

We found this special place in 2001 and built Tres Pochotes three years later. Avid surfers and beach celebrants, we return to paradise from our home in Florida as often as we can. At low tide, be sure to visit La Sirena, a majestic bronze sentinel just down the beach, jutting out of the Pacific and facing the exquisite horizon.

Danny Bishko and Felipe Bermudez purchased this house in 2005

Why Danny Bishko and Felipe Bermudez chose Esterillos Oeste

The comfort and functionality of our house in a tropical beachfront setting with its responsive property management by Danny and Felipe make this a perfect and carefree vacation experience.

What makes this house unique

There are very few properties available that sit on a worldclass surfbreak such as Esterillos Oeste. The opportunity to watch the waves from the house and paddle out when the tide fillls in or when the wind backs off is hard to beat.. While other stellar breaks such as Boca Barranca, Hermosa and Bejuco are easy drives from the house, the ability to walk right out of your door into the lineup is priceless.

For non surfers, the birdwatching is spectacular from the decks and patio. The daily evening roosting of parrots in the trees on the property is always a special event. Chilling out in a hammock with a good book and long walks on vast stretches of beach at lowtide are other simple activities that bring in the local vibe which is tranquilo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We cannot say enough good things about the house we've staying in for the last 10 days, Tres Pochetes (check it out on VRBO #262954). It's very spacious with 3 bedrooms (all with Queen or King sized beds) and 4 full bathrooms. All rooms overlook the Pacific Ocean. There is literally fishing and surfing right outside your front door (well, back gate anyway). It is walking distance to the town center and a 4 Star restaurant (Los Almendros). Or, if you prefer to eat in, you have a fully furnished kitchen at your disposal and full-sized refrigerator. The property managers live less than a block away so any problems can be addressed immediately. (Dave and Kate have been amazing.). It really is the perfect house for a beach vacation.

A Part of the Community

  • 5 of 5

WOW, I must say that this is undeniably one special place. It is here that one can find a healthy mix of expats, Ticos and surfers, all of who are blended together to make the community in the little town of Esterillos Oeste a great home away from home. Waking to nature's symphony of green parrots and waves each morning as well as being able to walk to the local market/restaurants deems the perfect getaway. In addition, the larger cities of Jaco and Parritta are only short drive away, allowing travelers to indulge in the best of both worlds… Our hosts Dave and Kate made us feel right at home! We are hoping to visit again next year!

A great house in a wonderful community.

  • 5 of 5

We instantly felt at home here, a perfect place to let go and relax. The beach is pristine, the small unspoiled town is awesome. The few spots to eat at were are good, standouts were the restaurant with wood stove pizza at the Rancho Coral (next door) and Los Almendros a 3-minute walk from the house. When staying in this home you can feel the love that was put into it by the owners. The little details make it a perfect home away from home. The wildlife around the property is just amazing, Macau's, iguanas, Parrots to name a few kept us company every day. The locals in the town are kind, welcoming and true. Fishermen, Surfers (and Surf instructors) , Expats, Snowbirds, Residents and tourist live in harmony. Renting a board or a bike is a charm and the occasional horse riders make the charm of this Perl on the Pacific.

A note about the hosts: Filipe and Danny are attentive and kind always there when we had a question. a huge thanks to them for making the whole experience perfect. We will return!

Yellow House on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Impossible to describe the experience we had staying a month in this lovely home right on La Playa. We have done a great deal of traveling, but never found this much a more perfect place for relaxation. The house had enough bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate two rounds of family, and Dave and Kate responded immediately to every request. Esterillos is magical, the restaurants within walking distance are terrific. Fresh fish and seafood every day with few tourists and no cruise ships on the horizon. An endless beach in both directions, surfing, and great music. We did not want to leave, and hope to be back next year for a longer stay! Pura Vida!

Thank you for a beautiful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Esterillos, the beach is amazing and we enjoyed the storms at night and the beautiful surf and sand during the day. Our weather was amazing for our 2 week stay in July. The house was very comfortable, a bit rustic in some respects but we had everything that we needed to cook and relax. The pool was wonderful especially during the days that were really warm. This is a great location to have a quiet spot to relax but it was close enough to all of the activities to get there in a reasonable time and also close enough to Jaco to easily get supplies. We loved the food at Los Almendros, the fish was amazing. Loved being able to buy fish right off the beach in front of the house from the locals. Everyone was so nice throughout our stay and we appreciated having Dave and Kate just up the road from us. The chaos every night about 5:30pm with all the birds was great fun, and we also enjoyed the frog that came out every night and the iguana that lives under the deck. All in all a wonderful place to stay and an unforgettable vacation!!

Tres Pochotes June stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Costa Rica. Dave and Kate were great and responded quickly whenever we needed help or had questions. The house was fabulous. Right on the beach,

with a pool that made all of the difference at the hottest and most humid parts of the day.

We learned to surf right out in front of house with Jorge at Aloha Surf (we're in our 50's). we enjoyed personal massages and relaxed all week. This is a great place to stay if you just want

to chill on the beach for hours strolling or a great half way point to many fun destinations. We hope to return some day in the near future! Pura Vida Heather
