Santa Teresa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Location: Playa Santa Teresa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, Central America (1 km north from the town’s catholic church and soccer field.) View Map

Accommodations: House, 4 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms (Sleeps 8)

Milla La Maria is a 12,000 square meters property located in a wonderful and quiet residential neighborhood 1 km north of the town centre and a few hundred meters South of the well-known Resorts of Flor Blanca, Milarepa, Red Palms to mention some.

Those who stay at Milla La Marìa enjoy complete privacy. The property is gated with a long driveway that extends from the Front Gate to a large circular private parking area located just off the entry to La Casona. The home is surrounded by magnificent gardens and it is the only rental home on the estate grounds.

The property stretches from the main public road to the beach. Milla La Marìa is a truly exotic retreat surrounded by beautiful Costa Rican flora, with legendary trees of pochote, malinche coral, almendro, Ilán Ilán,and higuerón as well as many tropical fruit trees particularly banana, platano, coco, mamón, cas, carambola , mango, fruta de pan , guayaba, Aguacate, limón and naranja ácida. Most attractive for visitors is the large collection of Heliconias grown on the property grounds and the impresive

number of different kinds of tropical flowers.

La Casona:

Upon entering La Casona, one faces a open leisure living Estancia area [by far, the favorite area of the house!] This area acts as a leisure/ living area. It uniquely creates the ambiance with ceramic tile throughout. It is fully furnished with separate seating areas, hammocks, traditional Costa Rican wood-carved rocking chairs, cocktail table, sofas, and a detached guest bathroom.

This area is adjacent to the pool. This unique indoor open terrace has a distinctive Costa Rican décor, yet features many cultural artifacts acquired by the owner as well as a notorious and large collection of wooden sculptures that the owner has patiently carved throughout the years.

Adjoining the leisure area is the kitchen and dining area. This area is the “heart” of the beach house, with a staircase leading to the sleeping quarters (master bedroom and both right and left wings suites and to the third floor loft). The dining room table seats 10. And the kitchen comes fully equipped with a full-size refrigerator, an oven with stove, sink, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker, plates & utensils, and a pantry.

As one reaches the second floor one faces an open leisure area overlook by a 3rd floor loft.

The 3rd floor open loft provides 2 twin beds complete with a ceiling fan. The stairs accessing this floor are somewhat steep; and we recommend that these sleeping quarters not be reserved for the elderly or small children.

Master bedroom

The master bedroom consists of an extraordinarily spacious bedroom with a king size bed, and a twin bed, Air Conditioning and 2 ceiling fans, a private bathroom, fully furnished with cable TV and internet access.

The Left-Wing of la Casona.

The Left -Wing quarters have one suite. This bedroom includes Air Conditioning, private bathroom. This second floor suite has one queen bed. It is completely secluded and private; an experience of solitude and peace. This suite boasts a private balcony overlooking the property’s lush garden. It also enjoys the choice of having a private entrance as well as entrance from the main house.

The Right- Wing of La Casona:

The Right -Wing quarters have two suites. The upstairs suite offers a spacious bedroom furnished with one king, one queen and one twin size bed. This bedroom include Air Conditioning, private bathroom, full kitchenette (including plates and utensils), dining area for four, refrigerator, sink, coffeemaker, toaster, and microwave. The balcony is a perfect backdrop for enjoying meals and conversation with the lush and serene landscape inherent to the tropics of Costa Rica. It also enjoys the choice of having a private entrance as well as entrance from the main house.

The downstairs suite is completely furnished and has one queen size bed, AC and a private bathroom

This amazing property was named, Milla la Maria, after the owner and retired International Relations professor, Roberto E. de la Ossa T’ s late mother.

Professor de la Ossa fell in love with the location back in the mid seventies. He purchased the property in the early 80’s and over the course of twenty five years has not only established a magnificent vacation home for himself and his family, but has recently opened up the possibility for travelling families, groups, and individuals to rent and enjoy “La Casona” (as this unique land mark is fondly referred to by locals and outsiders who have had the opportunity to spend some time at Milla La Marìa).

Roberto E de la Ossa T purchased this house in 1981

Little slice of heaven in Santa Teresa

A very spacious and comfortable home on a fantastic piece of property, which was ideal for our group, which consisted of adults, pre-teens and a 3 year old. Highlights include the pool area, direct access to the beach, wildlife on the property (monkeys, lizards, etc.), one of the best surf breaks in all of Santa Teresa directly in front of the house, and the tide pools located just down the beach. Roberto, the owner, is extremely helpful and friendly, as is the housekeeper, Melania, who lives on premise. We enjoyed being at the end of town with great proximity to restaurants and amenities, but just far away enough to get even more privacy and seclusion. Playa Hermosa is a short drive up the road and ideal for beginning surfers and the little ones.

Paradise Found...again.

One of the things that motivates me to work hard at my job is knowing that each year, I will return to vacation at Milla la Maria. This year did not disappoint for our first all girl's getaway. Although I was already very familiar with the house, Roberto still greeted our group upon arrival - explaining the nuances of the house and the area. Each year, I find new updates to a house that I already consider perfect for my stay. I found the house to be very comfortable and spread out enough for our larger group this year. All the girls enjoyed the large eat in kitchen where we saved on money by preparing many meals made from fresh, local ingredients. And, when we felt like eating out, there were several restaurants within walking distance that are outstanding - Kika and Chil Viola were two of our favorites.

As in previous years, the house felt very secure and safe with gates on the property and Melania, the caretaker's every watchful eyes and ears.

The charm of Milla la Maria and the area of Santa Teresa will continue to draw me back year after year. It's my home away from home....:)

Great house, wonderful waves, and friendly staff

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Milla La Maria. This was our 5th time to Santa Theresa and first time renting a house. The house was clean, bright, spacious, and private. The expansive property was only steps to the beach, however offered a secluded jungle feel. Tons of monkeys, iguanas, flora & fauna. The grounds were something out of a rainforest picture book.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner Roberto, who gave us a nice tour of the property and helped us get settled in. We also met our personal in house housekeeper Melania. The staff was fantastic and readily available for anything we needed.

I highly recommend this property! We will definitely be retuning next year.

review for rental 74736 - surpassed all expectations

The location is perfect - beach front, but there is also a pool on the property, and a little store across the street where you can get anything you need. The grounds are gorgeous.
Monkeys, birds, iguanas, horses on the beach, walks on the beach, the sunsets, surfer mecca, yoga, lovely restaurants. The ocean is clean and super salty, waves are great the beaches gorgeous.
You get rustic connection to the elements and also great restaurants nearby. Renting some bikes worked out well.
The house and accommodations are outstanding.
Roberto is so helpful with suggestions and recommendations, anyone he recommends for you is top notch. For us he arranged pick up and drop off with a driver he trusts.
Milania, the house keeper, is a sweetie and just ebbs and flows with your activities as she takes care of the house and property.
I would do this every year for the rest of my life.

absolutely amazing!!!

From the time we arrived our whole stay at this home was perfect. We arrived past dark and Roberto was outside waiting for us to make sure we found it. He took us inside and showed us around and made sure we had what we needed. We were 3 families with a total of 5 kids. There was plenty of room, space and privacy. The home is very clean, well stocked with all the amenities you need. The grounds are spectacular. Beautiful landscaping, very private and safe. The home is right on the beach. The completely fenced property is huge. So from the house to beach is maybe 2 minutes but might take longer because there's so much to see and spot amung the trees, flowers and plants. Lots of monkeys, iguanas and birds. And then there's Melania who lives on the property with her husband. She is amazing!!! She cleans the home, pool area and grounds everyday. If you need laundry done you may place it in the hamper and she will have it done for you same day. She brought us eggs from her chickens. She doesn't speak English but she does try her best to communicate. She was very pleasant and kind. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and a couple of grocery stores for all that you would need. I hope to return to this place of paradise! Thank you so much Roberto.
