Casa Monarca is one of the the most celebrated beach house rentals in Santa Teresa's exclusive northend, and for good reason. This 2,500 sq ft, 3-br 3-ba home boasts all the amenities, has an outstanding location, and is an excellent value. There are 2 MBR/ MBA Suites, a chef's kitchen, ample common indoor & outdoor Living and dining spaces, a large terrace and 1/2 acre tropical garden with it's own private swimming pool, just steps to the pristine white sands, warm glassy surf waves and glowing sunsets that make Santa Teresa such a magical place. If the surf is not for you, you can still enjoy long walks at low tide or enjoy your private pool surrounded by lush tropical gardens, or the screened comforts of A/C, wireless internet and satellite TV and full Concierge services, to help you make the most of your vacation, at no additional cost to you.
Casa Monarca was built in 2006 and renovated in 2009, by a well known Costa Rican builder educated at the University of Nebraska, USA. The goal was to bring together casual Costa Rican style living with all of the comforts and safety standards common to North American construction. The result is a complete success and sure to please everyone in your party.
The house is furnished with handmade Costa Rican wicker, bamboo, hardwood and rattan furniture. The MBR/MBA Suite has a king size and full size beds, a large marble bathroom and double 8' sliders out to the terrace, with a private seating area.

My Dad was an executive w/Sheraton & Omni hotels, so I grew up in & @ the hospitality business. I first came to CR, in '96 to guide the Pacuare river with Rios Tropicals, while on summer break from grad school.
I quickly fell in love with CR & came back every summer since. In 2000 I moved to CR for a year & began 'The Search'. In 2002 I was able to transition back to CR full time & purchased this magnificent beachfront parcel in '03 w/the sale of my Aspen property. I am an ex-Aspen, Colorado foreign language teacher, who is actively involved as a volunteer at the local public school. I have dedicated my full time efforts to developing and running a first class beach home rental operation, where people can come and relax, renew and enjoy one of the prettiest beaches in anywhere in the world...Santa Teresa, CR. Mariposa Vacation Homes, is the result of many years of dedicated work to achieve that goal.
Stefan purchased this house in 2006
Why Stefan chose Santa Teresa
I lived in Hawaii for 3 years & have traveled extensively both abroad & around Costa Rica, looking for the most beautiful beach in the world, where the surf is friendly & consistent. I decided to settle in Santa Teresa because it was one of the few places that actually surpassed my criteria. It's pristine white sand beaches, glowing sunsets, wonderful surf, nice people and magical tropical atmosphere must be experienced first-hand in to be truely appreciated !

Guestbook comments from the owner
Stayed in Casa Pelicano (Monarca as of 10 '14), beautiful location with everything near by. The house was private and quiet with great beach access. Great area for day trips as well. Marta provided exceptional service and recommendations on activities and restaurants. I want to live in Casa Pelicano!!
