ULTIMATE SURFERS PARADISE 2BR HOME WITH PRIVATE POOL #2 OF 38

Santa Teresa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Casa Iguana is an outstanding value for couples, families, and friends. This home is part of a 3-home, 2.5 acre gated complex. Our beachfront lot is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Santa Teresa’s exclusive North end. The best surf break in the area is located directly in front of the property. Santa Teresa is known for its consistent surf, pristine white sand beaches, and relaxed atmosphere.

We are located approximately one mile (1.2 km) north of the center of town. Casa Iguana is steps to the beach and has a serene walking path through a tropical Butterfly garden 'Mariposario' directly to the ocean without having to cross any main roads.

This comfortable 1000 square foot (95m2) two-bedroom, one-bath house with indoor and outdoor areas and a private non-chlorine pool (pure salt chlorinated) is surrounded by tropical hardwood trees and exotic local fauna. The kitchen is well equipped with a 18 cubic foot refrigerator, four burner gas stove and oven, bar style dining set for four, toaster, blender, coffee maker and more. The adjoining living room area offers hardwood, bamboo and rattan furniture and a 27' color cable TV, tastefully decorated in Costa Rican style. The bedrooms are both the same size. One has a queen bed and the other one has two singles. Both bedrooms have ample closet space, ceiling fans, A/C, large screened windows for cross ventilation and of course there is hot water in the bath. An outdoor back terrace provides a dining area for 6 and gaz grill, and also an area to hang wet bathing suits. The private pool is non-chlorine (pure salt chlorinated) and has a nice Brazilian Cherry finished deck which joints the dining and living areas via the pool area, which offers an outdoor shower and lounge area.

Theses two wonderful outdoor terrace areas are very private and wonderful. Again, there is one LR & one DR area adjacent to the pool and pool deck area. The LR area offers an Indo day bed and hammocks, while the dining area offer seating for 6 and a built-in gas lava rock grill. This is a good place to share quality time with friends and family or to simply relax and enjoy the beautiful tropical surroundings.

Our lush & abundant gardens include a wide variety of mature tropical hardwoods, cocos, various palms, bananas, plantanes, papayas, lemons & guava trees, plumerias, & flowering tropical plants such as hibiscus, jasmine, heliconias, bromelias, tabacones & much more. Monkeys, iguanas, paroquets are just a few of the creatures you may see & hear right from your terrace.

Mariposa property is a 3-house gated complex with full time maid maintenance and staff and a wonderful multi-lingual & multi talented Concierge, Marta Marques. If you wish to accommodate more than one family, can can comfortably accommodate 27 guests on-site. Please contact us or visit our website for more information. The property is private, secure and well maintained.

Also, within walking distance you'll find a supermarket and restaurants.

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 2007

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.

This review is WAY overdue (sorry Stephan)!
Let me start of by saying that all communications with Stephan before our travels were great! The Owner, Stephan, was easy to reach and quick to answers our questions. The reservation process was also simple and easy.
We rented Casa Iguana for 12 nights. The home and property was very well kept. The house itself was the perfect size for myself, husband and our 10 year old. Everything was there that we required or needed- even a blender to make smoothies with the fresh bananas and star fruit we picked! The grocery store was a 5 minute walk out the front gate- super convenient.
The walk to the beach was also a five minute walk. This walk took you to the side gate (with security lock) that opened to the public access walkway to the beach. It was perfect for my husband who wanted to run up and check the surf several times a day!
The wi-fi was actually TOO GOOD! We had fully expected to drop off the grid for two weeks! But, there it was, great wi-fi and the ability to make our Facebook friends jealous of the paradise we had found.
Marta, the property concierge, was friendly, funny and helpful when we had questions or needed to find someone to take us fishing. The cleaning clue did a great job on their every other day visits. And maintenance replied promptly to the minor issue we had.
We are hoping to return to the property...maybe bring friends and rent Casa Ying Yang!
Thanks again Stephan, Marta and Hector!
