About Tomas de la Ossa
I was born in Costa Rica a few years back. At age 18 I left home and went to California, USA in pursuit of a better education. During the Vietnam War I joined the USMC and serve with the 1st Marines in Vietnam. Upon my return to the USA from overseas I attended California State University in Los Angeles where I studied International Relations. During the 32 years I lived in the Golden State I worked at different things among them: Played and sang with a Mariachi Band in a night club in Los Angeles, Was Director of Data Processing for a large Insurance group in LA. Toward the end of my self-impose exile in the City of Angels I served as Comercial and Public Relations Attache for the Costa Rica Consulate General in Los Angeles, as a Consul of Costa Rica in Los Angeles, and last as Costa Rica Director of Tourism for Western United States and Canada, before retiring and moving back to live in Costa Rica.
Tomas de la Ossa purchased this house in 1985
Why Tomas de la Ossa chose Santa Teresa
Being away from my native country for more than 30 years, I came to treasure from afar the natural wonders and the beauty of Costa Rica and its beaches. Santa Teresa was but a little fishing village lost in the wilderness of the Nicoya Peninsula. No one knew back then, not even me that the waves and the beaches of Santa Teresa were unique and the best in the country. It was love at first sight.
What makes this house unique
When I first built my house it was just a place to come home to and spend a few days at the beach in total solitude before going back to Los Angeles to make a living. I have found Santa Teresa to be the perfect antidote to stress and the busy life. The four acres property of Wavebreaker Villa in Santa Teresa will offer you plenty of peace and the best surfing Costa Rica has to offer. One of the big advantages of staying at the Villa is that you are away from the busy part of Santa Teresa. The beaches of Playa Santa Teresa and further north are less crowded and hotels are more spread out. The pool of Wavebreaker beach front Villa has the best view of the ocean in all of Santa Teresa.
Some of the most luxurious lodgings of Santa Teresa are found here. You can make extensive walks along the scenic, white-sand beaches, bathe in tide pools, or curl up in a beach chair or a hammock strung between swaying palm trees.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We want to thank you Don Tomas and Chepita for an incredible vacation. The perfect location, perfect accommodations and perfect hospitality. What more could you ask for? You both went above and beyond our expectations to make sure all our needs were met. We started each day eating breakfast with an incredible view of the ocean. We shared the view with monkeys, iguanas and Perone the dog. Santa Teresa was absolutely the perfect location for our 3 week stay, with great restaurants, surf and activities. The supermarket right across the street was perfect for our ice cream runs. Our afternoons were spent playing games and reading books in the hammocks. Our children spent all their time either in the ocean or pool. To say we were relaxed is an understatement, we did no housework--Josefa did our laundry, dishes, and made our beds, she spoiled us and always had a smile on her face and a great story. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. We will be back.
