Property Description

The Spot is a good vibes only kind of place, is more like being at your place but on a small fisherman villa with the real costa rican flavour.

The Spot is located on a big property in which the guest will be free to go all around, the hammocks area offers a very relaxing place to chill or read a book surrounded by beautiful garden planted with love and full of lots of different birds species which includes humming birds.

The Spot has private parking area (first come first served), rack area for your surfboards, a nice big open kitchen in case you want to cook and several chilling areas to share with the other guest or with your own group.

We have a pool table, board games and a big library with super good books.

    One of the best spots I stayed in Costa Rica. Very helpful and friendly staff, chilled out, laid back atmosphere, very close to the quiet beach. There’s a grocery store nearby with a great selection of everything you’d love to devour. The beach here is very nice, and not super busy like other main stream beaches. Located just 25 minutes from the very busy, touristy town called Jaco, this offers a break from the crowds and one of the quietest spots to relax and catch up on some rest & relaxation!

    From start to finish our time at the Spot and in Oste was nothing but enjoyable! The staff was welcoming, helpful and friendly! The town is a hidden gem off the main tourist route. Good waves, incredible tidal pools to explore and watch the sunset from with a beer in hand. Local restaurants, although few, are excellent. The community truly embraces Pura Vida together as a whole. Take the time and check out this more mellow surf community.

    The Spot was a great place to start our vacation. Roger couldn't have been more hospitable. We wanted to stay outside of Jaco and the location was perfect. The hostel itself is beautiful! Great vibes, would definitely go back, highly recommend!

    Fantastic experience! We came to Esterillos Oeste to get away from the crowds. This town is quiet and easy to get to. There are a handful of good restaurants and one really great one that they can point you to. The hostel rooms are all different, some built out of box cars, super cool! Lots of hammocks, books, garden to enjoy. Less than 5 mins to the beach. Walk 10 mins down the beach and you’ll find yourself in solitude with amazing sunsets + parrots fighting over almonds in the trees.

    The Spot is a wonderful little oasis just a five minute walk from the gorgeous beach of Esterillos Oueste. Made from shipping containers, it’s unique design and layout provides plenty of outdoor shade space to lounge in the hammocks, prepare food in the huge kitchen or do yoga on the roof studio overlooking the village. I stayed for three wonderful nights and will definitely stay here again when I come back. Thank you Dianna and Roxanne for your excellent hospitality!! Pura Vida:)
