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 the only family 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.

Steps to the beach and lots of wildlife
We had a lovely time. A pair of toucans arrived near our window every morning. There were white faced monkeys playing in the trees and on the beach. Howler monkeys in the trees. On our last day there the icing on the cake - a mama sloth with a baby right by our patio. We saw more interesting creatures here then at the park, but the park is awesome too. The accommodations are nice and well maintained. The concierge was extremely helpful. The only negative is the furniture is mostly built in - cement and tile, so not the most comfortable, but you’re not there to hang around the villa! The beach is fantastic. Loved playing in the waves. Also had a successful fishing expedition. Lots of mahi-mahi. Highly recommend! Bobby, Fabio and all the staff were very friendly. Pura Vida!
thanks for the great review, Nellie.......the wildlife is really flourishing around the villas right now.......I'm glad that you got to enjoy it.........please come back and see us again soon........Bobby, owner
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.
Thanks for your nice review, Mark......we hope to have you guys back at the Espadilla Ocean Club soon......Bobby, owner
Great location, nice house, accommodating and helpful staff
Perfect location for family spring break. House is great and great location to beach. The property itself is nice with very accommodating and helpful staff. Quick walk to market and restaurants. Highly recommend.
thanks for the great review, Biju......it was nice chatting with you all and we hope you guys can come back and stay with us again.......Bobby, owner
Fantastic Family Vacation
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
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. ❤️🌅�
Anna...........you guys were ideal guests.........enthusiastic, and willing to experience the real Costa Rica...........we hope to see you back again soon............Bobby, owner
Costa Rica Vacation!
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.
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
