VILLA POCHOTE - PRIVATE OCEAN VIEW BEACH VILLA

Santa Teresa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

At villa pochote you will find the peace and tranquility that you are looking for in your trip to costa rica.

We are a 7 acre oasis just 150 yards from the beautiful beach of playa manzanillo and a nice walk or quick drive to the breathtaking beach of playa hermosa.

Villa pochote has two bedrooms and two baths and is surrounded by the renowned pochote tree and the rare gavilan and cocobolo. Both upstairs bedrooms have ocean views. The main bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to a teak wood balcony for monkey, whale, and bird watching as well as ocean and sunset views.

Downstairs there is a full bath along with the kitchen and entertaining areas opening to a spacious patio accessed by sliding glass doors for more ocean viewing and garden access.

Villa pochote can accommodate up to 5 adults.

Viila pochote is constructed with wood accents of teak, pochote, and laurel.

***the home is fully equipped and furnished with lush gardens, white gravel walkways, wrought iron gates, private parking, pressurized hot/cold water, sky tv, wireless satellite internet, cleaning and laundry service, gardener, and 24-hour security.

Built and designed by the owner in august of 2008 the home has vaulted ceilings of pochote beams with laurel wood paneling and the verandas, patios, stairs, door and window frames are all accented in teak.

Take time to walk along the trails of our 6 acre property...Look for coatis, anteaters, jaguarundis, white face and howler monkeys, various bird species, and iguanas...Or find one of our sitting areas and just watch and listen to the ocean.

Our staff can help with any questions or needs, so sit back, relax, and enjoy your stay with us...

The beaches....

Because of rock reefs surrounding the entrance to playa manzanillo, this beach has it all. Here you can surf, snorkel, swim, kayak, fish, beach comb, and at the end of the day enjoy one of the most spectacular sunsets the nicoya peninsula has to offer. The best part about manzanillo beach is many days the only footprints you will find will be your own.

A few years ago playa hermosa was basically unknown, but recently discovered by surfers tired of the crowds and congestion of santa teresa, this beach is becoming increasingly more popular for tourists and surfers. Playa hermosa lives up to its name and is truly beautiful offering great waves for surfers, swimming and beachcombing on a long and wide un-crowded beach.

To truly capitalize on all the peninsula has to offer, a car or 4 wheeler is a must, but still many of our guests prefer to walk the old beach road to playa hermosa enjoying the quiet and slow pace - stopping at the tide pools, private beaches, the waterfall, and always returning with stories of seeing more monkeys and iguanas than people.

The surf....

Yes, there is surf. A short drive south are the more popular surf spots of playa carmen (mal pais) and santa teresa, but just a few minutes away in manzanillo and playa hermosa you can find waves for all levels of surfing (reef, point breaks, beach breaks, river mouths) – beginner to advanced – with crowd and attitude free, consistent surf.

For any surf questions feel free to contact the owner who has over 25 years surfing experience.

We can also set-up surf lessons with qualified instructors.

The fishing....

Manzanillo and north to the bongo river is an area famous for fishing. You can go local and try your hand at hand-line fishing or bring your own gear and head out to the reefs at low tide. You may get lucky and hook sea bass, snook, red snapper, or a rooster. A quick run north will get you to the bongo which is legendary for its fishing due to its river mouth - a great place to catch snook, just ask a local family who bought a car they call “robalo” meaning “snook” in spanish. All the money they earned to buy the car came from selling their snook/robalo catches from the bongo.

We can also book fishing tours for you – just ask.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I arrived in the dark of night, far later than planned. A kind gentleman greeted us and showed us to our home for the week. We were impressed by the wood finishes on this property, the walls and ceilings were beautiful, the bed comfortable! In the morning the view! We had no car, no food, so Trey had a delightful breakfast sent over to us, then volunteered to take us shopping in town! What a great ride along the gorgeous coast! Hailing friends along the way in 2 languages, Trey gave us a brief history of the area and good ideas on where to surf, eat and find fun! That was our first 12 hours at this graceful property! This was our favorite beach to walk in our month long travel of CR last January, miles and miles of open beach with a soft, tree-lined coast. Trey is a easy-going, knowledgeable host with a wealth of experience in the area. We heartily recommend him and his property! Barb and Tom

I chose Manzanillo because it was far enough away from the hustle and bustle and congestion of Santa Teresa, but close enough to hop in the car or on a 4-wheeler and have access to anything and everything one could want - and most importantly, the outstanding surfing and fishing!

Within half an acre of the villas, there are more than 25 different type of indigenous trees. The property itself is 7 acres and is connected by walking trails that my worker and I have built by hand and has ocean views from almost every corner of the property. All the trails have been planted and reforested, and because of the planting all the birds, butterflies, and animals have returned to the property. You can sit anywhere on the property and hear the waves crashing 60 meters below at Punta Pochote.

Beach-jungle hideaway

  • 5 of 5
I got to spend a week staying in the Villa Pochote and it was awesome. I really appreciated that there was air conditioning to ensure a great nights sleep. The house had a kitchen and two big bathrooms, including one with 2 shower heads that would be great for families. The owner, Trey, built the houses and the pride in craftsmanship is apparent in every detail. It had amazing sunset views from the deck which looked over the pool through the trees to the ocean. There were howler monkeys every day and some of the coolest looking iguana. The beach is just a short walk away but I recommend getting a quad (ATV) because it's fun and makes everything quickly accessible. I loved my stay and I'm planning a return trip so I'd definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Absolutely the BEST vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the best family vacation ever! We took our two boys ages 12 and 19 and they loved it. We spent time fishing and four wheeling and beach combing, we even got to see Whales breaching !!..The property was a hidden gem in the jungle, very well maintained and it was a great place to come home to relax to after a adventure filled day. Trey is the best part, he help you set up anything. He was such an wealth of knowledge to the area and helped us when we needed it. We came in at night in the rain.. I thought for sure we would be lost in the jungle, but his directions were spot on and we made it to the front door!! I can not express how neat this house was with the landscape and floral and the outdoor seating , to hear the waves crashing below you ..words do not do it justice. Thank you for the experience..Pura Vida !!

Trey was a terrific host. He was there when we needed anything and always available for helpful tips. His local knowledge and surfing experience is unparalleled. His description of the facilities was dead on and his directions to finding the place was good as well. Overall, our stay with him was the best value in our travels around Costa Rica.

Paradise Found! Wow!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Villa Pochote...the house is great, the view spectacular, the wildlife plentiful. What made our stay even more special was Trey- he is a warm,welcoming, knowledgable host. He went out of his way on so many occasions to make sure we had an exceptional experience- we even went fishing Costa Rican style in the ocean at Montezuma for a day, and cooked the fish that Trey caught over a fire at the beach. Trey made sure there were plantains in the tree in front of the house so the cappuchin monkeys would visit (along with the howlers who came every day). We are so glad to have chosen this rental!
