TRIED & TRUE 3BR 3BA FAMILY FAVOURITE W PRIVATE POOL 5 STAR RESORT

Santa Teresa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 1-11)

Casa Pelicano 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 Pelicano 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. The second bedroom offers a king size bed, walking closet and a private bathroom. The third bedroom has a bunk bed, ample closet space and a bathroom next door. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking with a full size refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, toaster oven all the necessary utensils, eat-up counter top and much more. The living room is a very nice place to relax, and has a flatscreen 32 Cable TV.

The house is concrete, tile and stone with teak wood and cana brava bamboo finishes, fully screened with aluminum doors and windows with A/C and ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and kitchen/living room areas. The terrace has LR, DR, hammock areas and a large gas lava rock grill, all overlooking the swimming pool area. Casa Pelicano is surrounded by beautiful mature tropical gardens, on its own private ½ acre lot with colorful flowers, cactus, almond trees, palms and a bermuda grass lawn. There’s an outdoor shower for rinsing off the beach sand.

Mariposa property is a gated 3-house complex. If you wish to accommodate more than one family please contact us or visit our website for more information. The property is private, clean, meticulously maintained and very secure, as Casa Pelicano offers an alarm, laptop safes and a nighttime watchman.

Within walking distance you'll find a supermarket and restaurants.

If there is anything at all that we can do to make your upcoming visit a total success, please don't hesitate to ask

We look forward to your stay! Pura vida!

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

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 !

Mariposa Vacation homes reflects a passion for excellence and respect for nature. Our goal here is simple: to provide every guest everything they need to enjoy the best beach vacation ever ! Our homes are comfortable quality constructions, with modern conveniences, beautiful gardens, very private and steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, wit a small intimate staff to cater to your needs...

What more could you ask for ?

We welcome you to come and experience the beauty and magic of Santa Teresa, and Costarican 'PuraVida' hospitality.

PERFECT FAMILY LAYOUT

  • 5 of 5
The house and property is set up so well for kids. We have 4 (6,5,3 and 20 months). Lots of private space for them to run and explore. In the first 2 days we saw from our backyard, a family of monkeys with their babies, several different iguanas, birds, geckos and tones of butterflies.
The covered patio is awesome to escape the sun but still have lots of room to play. The pool is a safe distance from the house so we did not stress about our youngest falling in but close enough that when everyone was swimming/wearing water wings around the pool we could sit up on the deck and relax.
We did 2 trips to the beach each day and the walk with 4 little ones was a breeze. The sunsets were amazing! My favourite part of the day was from 4-6 on the beach.
The Mariposa staff was very attentive and any request we had they were on it immediately. Very friendly and hard working people. Thanks for all your help!
We ate at Koji's which is mandatory and you will hear that from everyone! Habaneros was also good food, great (and only) spot on the beach and ideal for kids as their are tones of crabs after sunset.

NICE RETREAT IN SANTA TERESA

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our six night stay at the Casa Pelicano. We had a 3 generation family, so it fit our needs nicely. We spent many nice afternoons/evenings playing cards or reading on the back porch listening to the howler monkeys and hearing the surf in the background. We even had a troop of monkeys come through one evening and they hung out in the back yard trees for a while. There were lots and lots of baby iguanas in the yard as well. We did rent a car to be able to get around and see other areas of Mal Pais. There is one small grocery and a couple of restuarants in walking distance. If you plan to do a lot of cooking, the kitchen was a little smaller than expected, but we were able to make do. The house was clean and comfortable and the conceirge, Marta was very helpful.

AWESOME VACATION HOUSE IN SANTA TERESA

  • 5 of 5
Excellent experience at Casa Pelicano in Santa Teresa! My wife and I spent 10 days in Santa Teresa and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The house is a great value. Large bedrooms with an open concept entertainment room with modern amenities. The private pool is highly recommended for families and romantic encounters. On our second day we filmed monkeys, iguanas, birds all from the pool while we were swimming. Our day would start with a long walk on the beach, as the house is a 2 minute walk from the best beach in Santa Teresa. Restaurants and La Super Hacienda (For a bottle of wine or rum) is walking distance. Big thanks to the staff (Hector, Yadira, Jenny and Marta) for the attention and help) I highly recommend the surfing lessons and yoga lessons. Finally, the secure gated community is an extra bonus for safety and family security. We will certainly return.

A WONDERFUL CHOICE IN SANTA TERES

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from Casa Pelicano and had a wonderful visit. The house is graciously appointed in a wonderful location, steps away from one of Costa Rica’s best beaches (Santa Teresa) white sands with amazing sunsets and rolling waves. We have a house in Arenal and have traveled around Costa Rica and found this area magical; very much like Hawaii where we lived for a number of years.

John was very helpful setting up our accommodations and Monika was a gracious and charming concierge, making our visit very comfortable. Both offered helpful tips on the surrounding area. The house is conveniently located in the Mariposa compound, close to many wonderful restaurants (don’t miss Alma’s) but private enough to enjoy your own version of paradise with beautiful grounds and a private pool and the beach close by.

We hope to return and would definitely choose Peliano again.

  • 5 of 5
Hi!
Our stay for 10 days in this heavenly place was magical, I can't complain about anything and my visit to Costa Rica made me quit my job, quit my girlfriend, moving to Costa Rica in early September.
But the Pelicano Villa was more then satisfying, hope to bump in to you down there, Laura is helping me look at property and housing, and i like what i see.

If you want to chat or send an email you'll reach me through Laura at Mal Pais Travel.
