Finca Estrella with its stunning views of Pavones Bay, the Gulf Dulce and the Osa Peninsula became ours in 2003. She is a 150 acre jungle paradise snuggled in the hills of Cuervito de Pavones in Southern Costa Rica. An hour from local Golfito airport and just ten minutes drive from the stunning beaches that stretch for miles in both directions. Elevated enough to catch the cooling breezes that are heaven if you are lazing in a hammock by the 18m pool and a welcome relief if you are wildlife watching in the finca, hiking to the waterfalls or venturing out on horseback.
If you would like to read the hilarious and compelling book 'A Friend Laughs' by Jo Freeman, the story of our first 18 months in Costa Rica then visit 'A Friend Laughs'.
Finca Estrella has four beautiful rental houses: Casa del Sol (Sun House), Casa Roja (Red House), Casa Amarilla (Yellow House) and Casa Madera (Wooden House) that sleep from 4 to 9 people. An 18 metre (60 ft) swimming pool with rancho/grill area and children's pool, obligatory hammocks, high-speed wireless internet, and use of our horse are also included in the very reasonable rental prices plus Freddy, Enrique and Grace are on hand to ensure you have the best possible Costa Rican experience.
If it’s wildlife you are after then we have monkeys, sloths, tayras, parrots (including scarlet macaws), armadillos and a huge array of birds and butterflies. If it’s adventure then you can surf , paddleboard, kite surf, snorkel or dive, take a zipline through the treetops, go panning for gold, horse trek to the beach, mountain bike, or take a refreshing dip in a waterfall plunge pool. The 'Golfo Dulce' is also home to some of the world’s best fishing and sport fishing. Of course, if you want to chill out, then get Grace to paint jungle designs on your toenails, relax with a yoga class or that hammock by the pool will be waiting for you...
