Welcome to Tesoro Escondido! If you're looking for peace and privacy where you can enjoy nature at its finest, we think you will love our home with its amazing pool and breathtaking views of the ocean, jungle and mountains. We even have our own private waterfall only a 5 minute hike down to the bottom of our property. From the moment you drive up to our home at the end of the road you will feel like you have your own little piece of paradise with total privacy. When you walk from the covered carport through the main doors you will immediately see that our home offers a very simple and open floor plan that is inviting and comfortable. The kitchen has granite countertops and is fully equipped with everything you need to cook up a gourmet meal or make your favorite cocktail. There is a living space with comfortable furniture to sit and visit or stream your favorite tv show on our 55" screen Smart Tv. We also have high speed wifi internet for you if you wish to stay in touch with the real world. There are two bedrooms on opposite sides of the house to offer guest privacy. Both bedrooms have King sized beds and ensuite bathrooms. The master actually has an oversized window seat that could easily double as a 3rd bed. Both bedrooms have air conditioning although with the evening breeze you may be surprised that you don't need it. As nice and comfortable as the house is on the inside, the real magic and beauty is just outside the patio doors. That is where you'll spend all of your time. From the cozy patio furniture it's easy to lose track of time just gazing at the untouched beauty of Gods creation. Depending on which way you turn, you can see the ocean, the jungle or the mountains. It's always changing and always beautiful. You will see many beautiful birds and if you're lucky you just might see the monkeys swinging by on the trees right in front of you. It's not only what you'll see but also the sounds of nature that are amazing and relaxing, especially the sounds of the waterfall down below. Let's not forget the pool. You could easily spend the whole day in the pool and wonder where time went. Lounge in the chairs situated in the beach entry and enjoy the view. When you want to cool off just step off your chair into the water and go for a swim. Feeling a little hungry??? Just swim up to the built in table and enjoy a quick snack or a refreshing drink. When the sun is ready to set perhaps a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail to cap off the most perfect and relaxing day of doing absolutely nothing. There is also a Saber BBQ grill outside for you grill masters and plenty of space for everyone to gather around and enjoy the feast you prepare. For a little adventure, you can walk down the hill and into the jungle to find our own private waterfall. It's only about a 5 minute walk from the house but we do recommend you take precaution as it is all natural and can be dangerous. (There are no steps or railings; it is just a pathway through the jungle)

I can´t say enough about this property but I will start by telling you how peaceful and beautiful it is there. It has a safe feel having plenty of neighbors close by however when you step into the back yard it becomes your private jungle oasis. We ate all of our meals outside, in the pool or at the table, with a spectacular ocean view, you can hear the river running, and lots of wildlife passing from a safe distance away. I will be back!!!!
Thank you so much for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed our home and hope you will return.
A beautiful and romantic getaway!
My husband and I stayed for 11 days in May 2018 for our 1 year anniversary. I was sold when I saw the pool with the table and seating! The shallow end of the pool has a 'sandbar' like feel. This was surprisingly nice for getting in and out of the pool and the floaties that they provide. We did do sunbathing on the chaise lounges in the shallow end as well.
The house has basically everything you need. I will list some of the things they had that were not listed in the description. They had a hair dryer and curling iron, all cleaning supplies and laundry detergent. They have extra blankets too. They have both a man and woman's sun hat. I also donated a woman's sun hat as well. They have lawn chairs for the beach (with coolers in the backs of them). They have a soft zipper cooler. We also bought and left a white styrofoam cooler. We used these when going to get groceries and going on a day trip when we packed food. They also have an umbrella, beach towels and binoculars. For condiments they currently had sugar, rice, coffee filters, soy sauce, cooking oil, garlic, ketchup, some salad dressings and plenty of spices.
I would bring some zip lock bags of different sizes for food storage etc. They have some containers but not a lot. My husband and I cooked almost every meal and could have used more, but we got by with putting aluminum foil over bowls.
Other things to know/think of: We went in May (the rain season). It is hot and humid (to be expected). We overpacked on the clothing. It was hot and I was mostly in tank tops and shorts or a swimming suit. No need for long sleeves. Even when you leave to go somewhere it isn't air conditioned so you likely won't need the long sleeves. When we left for beach or hiking day trips we got sweaty and thus did laundry more often than expected. I could have gotten away with packing 1/3 of the clothing because I ended up washing and reusing the same tank tops and shorts.
When we went it was light at 5:15am and it was pitch black by 6pm. As a result we didn't leave for dinner ever. The road from the main highway to the house is very sloped and uneven (as are many roads in Costa Rica). We have read that you should avoid driving at night, so we did.
The property manager communicated with us in a timely manner. He also helped with setting up a massage at the house and called Alamo for us.
Overall, we loved this house and the privacy it provided. You won't regret booking here!
Amazing ....... pure vida!
My family spent just under a week at the house earlier this month as a gift from relatives who have also loved this property- I do not have words to describe the beauty of it all. The property was amazing- it has absolutely everything you would need (plus things you never think of!) just stop and buy your food and drinks and prepare to be in awe of all that Tesoro Escondido and Costa Rica have to offer!
The house itself is perfect- it is open, breezy and spacious without being overwhelming, and as I said, is stocked with everything you could ask for. Appliances and utensils are all new and high end- having the washer/dryer is a bonus and cooking on the large outside grill before relaxing on the porch was the way to go every night! Beds are really comfortable and linens super soft. Beach towels and chairs are there for your use which was perfect for exploring the stunning coastline of the region!
As for the garden- wow- the colors and view is not to be believed- blooms and butterflies everywhere and parrots overhead every morning and evening. The rainforest that surrounds the property provides the peace and tranquility with all the amazing sounds of nature that Costa Rica is famous for and make sure you go down the carefully designed path to the bottom of the property to enjoy the waterfall and river!
The pool is absolutely stunning- we spent hours in it every day either before or after our adventures- the design of the table and shallow area for lounging is genius and we miss it already!
You will feel totally secure as there are other homes in the area but none that invade your privacy- it is quite remote in terms of access and can be a bit tricky at night and following heavy rains so you will DEFINITELY need a 4x4- but to anyone visiting Costa Rica, I would recommend that choice anyway! The main roads are fantastic, but in order to truly explore and access many of the most beautiful areas, 4 wheel drive is a MUST.
The house is equipped with Roku TV and fast wifi- which for us worked perfectly except for one evening following an insane thunderstorm! We rarely used the TV but for the one day when there was torrential rain for 10 hours and we literally could not leave the property (so relaxing!) Netflix entertained our 7 year old daughter for the few moments that she wasn't splashing in the pool in the rain!
We loved our time here- I would definitely recommend- the property is outstanding and the southern coast a great area to explore and enjoy!
Thank you so much for the kind review. It is so fulfilling to share our piece of paradise with families just like you. We are so glad that you enjoyed the beautiful nature that Costa Rica has to offer. You and your whole family are more than welcome anytime you wish to return. Pura Vida, Wayne & Melanie
Beautiful home sitting on beautiful property.
The home is new, beautiful and very well maintained. Finished very well. It sits on a hill overlooking amazing jungle canopy filled with the most colorful birds we have ever seen. We very much enjoyed staying there. It was the best and longest vacation (2 wks) we ever had. No one ever bothered us there, it was so quiet and peaceful. Just what we needed. Thanks Melanie and Wayne for sharing your AMAZING home with us.
We are coming back I'm sure.
Paul and Tracey, we are so glad you had a relaxing vacation and you are more than welcome back at any time. Have a wonderful 2018.
We had an amazing time at Tesoro Escondido! There was a beautiful view with a private pool. There were so many options of things to do during our stay. There were several nearby beaches, not to mention the beautiful scentic drive to get there! The rain we got was enjoyable along with the wonderful smells we got on the patio. We enjoyed the view with a delicious lunch & our favorite drinks prepared in the kitchen that is fully stocked with dishes you need for cooking. Highly recommended this place! Overall is a gorgeous, romantic place to visit & relax!
Thank you Julie. We are so happy that you and Johnny enjoyed your stay. We hope you will visit again:-)
