The Property

Casa Esmeralda is a beautiful three story house right on the beach at Saladita with two other villas that sit just behind the main house. The home is divided into unique apartments that all rent separately.

If you have been to Saladita you know Casa Esmeralda. It is right where the sand ends and the rocks start. It is where you get into the water to paddle out to the wave! Why stay anywhere else?

The first floor 2-bedroom apartment is in the second villa that is directly behind the main house and just off the ocean. While it doesn't have direct ocean views, in less than 20 steps you can get out of bed and paddle out, as this apartment sits just back from the ocean and at the perfect access point to the break.

There are 2 air conditioned bedrooms. One has a king size bed, and the other has 2 full size beds. There is one bathroom with a standing shower and hot water.

The apartment features a fully equipped kitchenette with large refrigerator/freezer, stove with 4 gas burners, coffee maker, blender, dishes, utensils, pots and pans and filtered water is included.

There is WiFi throughout the unit, however the reception is not always the strongest.

Outside relax on the lawn and rinse off in the outdoor shower in the communal beachfront yard. Casa Esmeralda offers a quiet getaway on the beach for those who want to surf, eat, sleep, repeat.

Casa Esmeralda has a great selection of surfboards and SUPs to rent on site, so no need to pay board fees or risk damage. For an extra fee you can also arrange for airport pickups, massages, or cooks should you want some extra pampering.

Esmeralda and her family are known for providing unparalleled hospitality and make an extra effort for all guests to feel like part of the family.

About the Neighborhood

La Saladita is a sleepy little surf village where you can walk most anywhere barefoot, and besides surfing there's not much to do but relax and swing in a hammock. There's a very small community of locals and expats who call Saladita home, and there's a continual flow of visitors that return year after year to Saladita for its consistent year round surf. There are 5 beachfront restaurants, most shutter by dark with the exception of Lourdes' Bar & Grill which is open until 9:30pm. The latter accepts credit cards, while most of the village only accepts cash.

There's no need for a vehicle here, unless of course you want to explore the nearby town of Troncones which is 25 minutes to the south, or other surf breaks like the Ranch and Palo Alto, which are about 30 to 45 minutes driving to the north.

There are local taxis that can take you anywhere you need to go. You can find a driver at Lourdes' Surf Shop where they tend to hang out.

The closest town is Los Llanos where there are a few small grocery stores and an ATM. There are also multiple tacos stands and rotisserie chicken restaurants, should you tire of the fare on the beach. Los Llanos is about 10 minutes inland from the beach.

There's a small grocery store at Tortas & Mariscos Kevin, on the road just before you arrive to the beach that offers simple grocery items as well as fresh baked bread in the mornings.
