About
Description
Rancho Estero is located at the end of the road to Playa Estero and is on the bluff overlooking the beach and the surf. The view from this property is simply amazing. We have a series of small cabins that can More accommodate 1 to 6 people. We offer free internet access and a common kitchen. There are plenty of hammocks, chaise lounges and decks to relax on. Several restaurants are located close by. The town and the surf break "La Punta" are in walking distance. Rancho Estero is a very popular choice because of its priceless views, unique location and friendly vibe. Less

Stayed here with my girlfriend and 3 French friends in a 6 person cabin. What you get for the price is totally worth it compared to other hostels/hotels directly at the beach. Super chill vibe, nice common area and the guests and hosts were amazing!...More

Value: definitely good on value. Some places in the area charge almost as much as Rancho Estero and yet they don't have a view, individual huts (read: privacy). Rancho Estero is right on the beach, so when it's beachtime or surftime you just walk down...More
