About Eric Mcilroy

We are the Mcilroy's and the Kreck's. We designed and built this house for our family vacations. A place to create lasting memories. Both of our families are from California and we have been great friends for many years. We actually proposed to our wives here on the same day 14 years ago. We love this area so much we decided to build our dream vacation home.

Eric Mcilroy purchased this house in 2015

Why Eric Mcilroy chose Santiago

We chose this property because we have been coming to this region for 20+ years. This property in particular sits high in the breezes with a great ocean view, we wanted to be in a private location yet close to all of our favorite spots.

What makes this house unique

Outdoor living in style. Floating ceiling and the open breezeway creates a feel like none other. Watching the sunsets or the storms is really fantastic. Wonderful bird watching . Great place to create lasting memories.

Secluded Luxurious Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When initially looking to book this house I was skeptical it was too good to be true but this place is exactly as it seems from the photos. We were 6 adults looking to end our Costa Rican adventure with a few relaxing nights in the Santa Teresa area. Having 6 people we all have different interests and needs and this house and area will accommodate to all. If you want to simply relax and not move the house is ideal with huge lounge space, hammocks, large bedrooms, a fantastic outdoor patio and pool. If you want to go out and explore, Playa Hermosa beach is ideal for swimming and surfing and only a 20min walk down the hill (or a 5 min drive). 4wd is a must to access the property, it's on top of a large steep dirt track but that is part of the fun and the price you pay for privacy. If you get up for the sunset you will see cattle herding through the property and some unique and rare wildlife like the albino (bright yellow) parakeet.

The house is fully equipped from kitchen utensils, linen, bathroom necessities, board games etc. Janet, the on-site helper is wonderful, she will help out with cleaning on a daily basis including laundry.

The area was a highlight for me in Costa Rica - Santa Teresa has it all from wonderful beach side restaurants, relaxing beach bars and great surf. It's a sleepy relaxing coastal town - ideal for chilling out.

Eric the owner was great and responsive. He engages the help of Soraya and Troy as house managers who were also fantastic and very responsive to our needs.

I can't wait to be back in Santa Teresa, and if available, this is where I will be staying.

Beautiful family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a lovely setting close to the beach, but removed enough for peace and quiet. We saw monkeys and beautiful birds right from the porch while sitting next to the pool drinking coffee. We even had a dinner party one night with an Australian family we met, and the house was perfect for it! Jeanette the caretaker is lovely and wonderful, and my children enjoyed her little dog Mimi. We did not want to leave, and will definitely be back!
