About Bobby Workman

My wife and I decided to start a new life in Costa Rica for a slower paced lifestyle and to also start a family. So, we drove with our three Basset Hounds from North Carolina down through Central America to arrive at our new home in Costa Rica in 2005. After living in the country for 6 years while raising our three daughters, we decided to move to the tourist town of Manuel Antonio and build four villas on the beach with the help of our family and friends. The Espadilla Ocean Club is a special place and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Bobby Workman purchased this villa in 2013

Why Bobby Workman chose Manuel Antonio

Manuel Antonio is very unique because of the geography. The town is on a mountainside that overlooks the ocean and at the end of the road is the beautiful bay, beaches and national park. There is one way in and one way out which makes it feel like the special place that it is. Our villa is extremely unique in its design and in its proximity to this very well protected beach. We are almost the only accommodations actually on the beach in Manuel Antonio.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is special with its waterfall showers, attention to detail, view of the ocean, proximity to the beach and amenities(no car needed), modern design and its natural setting.

Beachfront Villa

  • 4 of 5

The property is very well maintained and operated. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Just a very short walk and you're on the nicest area of the beach. Chairs and umbrella setup daily. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 7 day vacation for our family of 5. The beach front location was perfect for our three daughters. All the ocean activities were within 3 - 5 minute walk from the condo. Very nice family friendly restaurants were a 5 minute taxi ride. The staff was very attentive to our every need. The on site concierge team of Juan Pablo and Jose were excellent at making suggestions for activities and dining and making last minute arrangements. Bobby and Shelly have created a unique and enjoyable vacation environment.

Perfect break; just recharging by the sea and the nature

  • 5 of 5

I loved the design in the villa. Appreciate the simplicity. Btw, I’m happy there was no tv. We got our books. And the sea is right there.

It was super useful to order some food before hand. Helicopter ride was definitely a good option and cool experience to share!

Early blue moments before sunrise in the ocean. Fruits, wonderful local bf and great staff. Parasailing, hiking in the natural park. All the cool animals, spiders & plants discovered. Sunset by the ocean.

Skiing break well spent recharging our batteries with my dad, lil’ sis and two daughters.

In the end of the week, my heart was full. Thank you. ❤️🌅?

Costa Rica Vacation!

  • 3 of 5

We have traveled to Costa Rica many times and stayed at a variety of different places. While the location of this property is great and at first sight is esthoeticatically pleaasing, we found there want any place inside or out that was comfortable for the four of us to sit together. The furnishings, mostly like sitting on stools were back wrenching. We were very surprised to get six envelopes the night before we left suggesting tipping everyone from the maintenance man to the pool boy and even more shocked that they would print a guide suggesting $280 tips for a three day stay. Not a Costa Rican culture! We also would have appreciated a full set of four dish ware and more pots and pans. The last suggestion is cutting the ivy on the back fence so we could see the water from inside. Again, beautiful property but needs to be more comfortable to its guests.

Owner's Response: Paul.......thanks for taking the time write a review for us, and thanks for choosing us for your vacation........also, we appreciate your nice comments about our location and the villas......... ..........we will definitely address all of the items that you mentioned.......I know it's a not so obvious at times, but most of the things that you mentioned are actually for your comfort........the ivy is on the fence to provide privacy for the villa.......and, we can definitely cut it back more often to allow for a better view of the ocean........we have been asked time and time again about how to tip the staff, so that is where the envelopes come in.......they are only a suggestion, and completely up to the guest if they'd like to leave tips for the staff........for the furniture, the villas are set up more for families than for 4 adults........and, we are always looking for ways to improve the comfort of our villas, so thank you for bringing those points to our attention.........Bobby Workman, owner of the EOC

Incredible Location for a Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Espadilla Ocean Club in January this past winter. We were two couples with small children and were looking for a place that was close to the beach and had all of the amenities we needed, this place was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed the splash pool that was onsite at the villa and the beach was just steps away! Manuel Antonio was such a special place and there were so many great restaurants close by. The staff on site at Espadilla Ocean Club were very friendly and accommodating, they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
