Beautiful spot in the heart of Santa Teresa!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Almendro at Villas Solar for almost 5 weeks this fall. Right from the start, our experience with Greg, Villas Solar, and Santa Teresa was amazing. Villa Almendro was much larger than we expected, with nice furnishings and amble room for our toddler to run around. The apartment was extremely clean (and continued to stay clean as Elisa came to change linens and clean every few days), the beds were super comfortable, the kitchen had all we needed to cook meals in, and the view from the back deck of the jungle (and quite often a family of howler monkeys) was stunning. The location couldn't have been more perfect for us - close to great restaurants and the grocery store, and about a 3 minute walk down a little path to the beautiful beach and the great waves. There is an outdoor shower to clean all the sand off after a day at the beach, and a rancho with seating and a BBQ for outdoor gatherings. We never felt that safety was an issue while staying at Villas Solar; there is a locked gate from the main road and on-site caregivers (Chino and Elisa) who do an amazing job at keeping the space tidy and welcoming. Greg was amazing at answering questions, making sure we were comfortable, and providing information on Santa Teresa and Costa Rica. We would definitely recommend Villas Solar to anyone wanting a great, comfortable, clean, centrally-located spot in Santa Teresa. And we will be back in the future for sure!

Santa Teresa’s Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
As we browsed through the various options listed for our needs, Villas Solar always stood out. From the stunning photos to the impressive reviews - this was the one we kept coming back to. It was by far the best for our family on paper; and ultimately the best vacation our family has been on.

From our first contact with Greg (the Owner and Manager of Villas Solar), via an e-mail asking about our future stay to even now (two weeks after our stay) he still response in a prompt and professional manner. Whether the communication was as simple as asking about laundry services, to taxi pick-ups, to arranging excursions for the day - Greg always responded back in the same timely manner.

If the customer service prior to us even arriving at Villas Solar wasn’t enough; the overwhelming comfort, security, welcoming, and continued customer service was. From the time you enter the Villas through the security gate your senses are on overtime, taking in all the smells, views, and warm welcoming from Luna - the on-site puppy, who loves sitting and enjoying the morning coffee as much as you - to the on-site care takers of Chino and Elsa, who always go out of their way to give a smile or offer to help.

After the welcoming, Greg still provides exceptional service by greeting you, walking you through the Villa (which we stayed in Villa Amapola for 13 nights), he provides any information about Santa Teresa, e.g. restaurants, surf shops, grocery stores, or laundry service. Greg checks-in everyday to ensure everything is good and you have no concerns; he’ll still take time out of his day to make any travel arrangements you may need.

The Villas are well constructed, clean, and have all the amenities one would need to cook a meal or Bar-B-Que. The Villas are centrally located on the main road, which provides easy access to all Santa Teresa has to offer. A short walk to the beach, or to Super Ronny’s (local grocery store), or to any imaginable restaurant you want (Santa Teresa has some of the best food we’ve ever had on a vacation) Villas Solar will put you right where you need to be for an unforgettable experience!

I would highly recommend Villas Solar to any and all, who want to experience Santa Teresa in the most comforting, the easiest, and the most enjoyable way.

Awesome Place, totally recommend!

  • 5 of 5
Villas Solar exceeded our expectations! We thought it looked nice from the photos and the owner Greg was great to work with, very helpful and responded quickly to emails, answering all sorts of questions we had. Once we arrived we were blown away by how helpful Greg was and how lovely and clean the property and unit was. Greg was there to meet us and gave us a great tour of the property and detailed instructions about our unit.

It was apparent that there is a lot of pride in ownership with this property, it is very well taken care of. We felt very safe and very comfortable. My husband and I traveled to Santa Teresa with our three year old and eleven month old and we were a little nervous about the unit and property being kid friendly. Our kids had a blast! We stayed in the two bedroom and it was really spacious! Way bigger than we expected it to be. It is so well maintained and very clean, we felt really good about letting our kids crawl around on the floor to play.

It is located right on the main road that runs through Santa Teresa and is right across the street from a beautiful beach. We were easily able to walk to restaurants and the market. We rented ATV's and cruised around town on those and there was plenty of room to securely park within the gated property. There is a great juice/smoothie/sandwich shop and surf shop with rentals and supplies directly below the unit which was really convenient. The kitchen in the unit is fully equipped with a fridge and stove so we were easily able to cook meals at home.

One other thing we were really impressed with was the construction of the buildings. We stayed in the duplex and that place is totally sound proof. We never once heard a peep from our neighbors or anything from the shops below. It was very private. The deck out front is amazing for eating, laying in the hammock and watching monkeys in the trees.

We loved our stay and would recommend this property to anyone. Greg was amazing, so professional, and made us feel like we had a close friend in town. Can't say enough good things.

we booked casa alemendro on-line with greg the owner and were very pleased with the apartment. it was much bigger than i expected and very tastefully decorated. the kitchen was open and well stocked for our group. the location is perfect, just a block from the beach and within walking distance to zwart cafe and ginger, two great breakfast spots.

we enjoyed many nights on the patio and saw monkeys, birds and squirrels right from the table.

i would highly recommend this accommodation and thanks to greg for his hospitality. hopefully we will be back!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Villa Almendro and it was great. The house was comfortable and clean, as were the gardens outside. The owner and groundskeeper were extremely helpful and pleasant. We were able to bring our three dogs and the owner had no problem with them roaming on their property which was a huge relief for us. The house is safe, close the beach and restaurants, and just a bright place. We would definitely recommend this house and we would love to go back!

We stayed at Villa Almendro and loved it. It was clean, comfortable, safe and centrally located. We would recommend this to families, couples, surfers. My teenager could walk to the surf shop and down to the beach on his own. It is right across the street from the surf, close to great restaurants and supermarkets. Our stay at Villas Solar was wonderful. Greg the owner was very helpful and accessible. There is WiFi which made my kids happy. We loved it and my husband is making plans to go back.
