Casa Sol y Sombra
We invite you to come stay with us at Casa Sol y Sombra. Our house is a modern tropical construction, with big outside areas to sit back, relax and unwind. Complete with all the amenities you would expect in your home. The house boasts beautiful ocean views all the way to the Cabo Blanco National Park. Morning sun, afternoon shade and endless cool breezes. Thus the name Sun and Shade.
The location of Casa Sol y Sombra is outstanding. Within walking distance to the beach (5min), different restaurants, cafés, shops, bank (3-10min) and supermarket (3min), its basically right above the village - though surrounded by a big and lush tropical garden and nestled in the hillside - the house and pool are very private - you feel miles away from everything.
A perfect and romantic vacation spot.
We are happy to help with your vacation plans and also offer a property manager at your service to assist you with any needs while staying with us.
Thank you in advance for your inquiry with us and we hope to see you soon.

Very nice and as represented
We had a great time at the house. It was nice to be up off the noisy street. Lots of great spaces to hang out at the property with wonderful views.
It is very close to shops and beach, however we found it helpful to rent ATV's for the days so that we could explore other beaches and areas much easier.
Siggi was very helpful with transportation and welcomed us with drinks, fruit, and coffee. Would most definitely recommend if you are in Santa Theresa!!
Great open house with lots of outdoor living space very close to town/beach.
You will feel like you are right in the middle of the jungle with this house even though it is a short walk to town and less than 5 minutes walk to the beach. Sitting in the infinity pool with beautiful plants all around and many critters such as lizards and birds to be seen makes you feel part of the nature. The house itself is very nice with an interesting layout and all the furniture - outdoor and indoor- is top notch. We enjoyed eating our meals in the outdoor dinning area. There is a very nice upstairs patio area overlooking the ocean. We didn't spend much time up there but the view is great and surprisingly there were no mosquitoes or other bothersome insects about.
Getting to Santa Teresa and the home you will have to navigate some very rough roads, so if you are driving I would recommend a 4 wheel drive with some clearance. With the location of the house you do not actually need a vehicle; we pretty much parked our vehicle the whole time we were there; however the walk up to the house is up a very steep road then driveway.
About the the only thing that would make the home better is air conditioning. There are lots of fans which helps and although we were able to get over the heat by using the pool and shade we did miss the AC a bit (our Canadian blood I suppose!)
The kitchen was well enough equipped for three of us although I think it could be a bit small if there were a larger group staying. Really the only thing we found it was lacking was a microwave and we really didn't miss it that much.
The owner, Siggy, was very lovely as was her friend, Ari?, who checked us in. They were both very helpful and welcoming. We really enjoyed the fruit and drinks waiting for us on arrival.
One final note - if you do plan to stay at this house the doors only open with keys - no doorknobs etc. so be very careful you always have the key with you or leave in the door when you are outside; we accidentally closed the door with the key inside the house once and when you do that there is no way to get the door open (luckily we had our agile son with us and had left the upstairs balcony door open so he was able to climb in that way but we would have been in trouble if he wasn't there!)
A beautiful oasis
This house is truly an oasis. Situated close enough to town that it’s an easy walk to restaurants and the beach, but set back enough that it feels quiet and private, it is the best of both worlds. The house and grounds are gorgeous. Well-appointed and beautifully designed, we found it hard to leave the property at all - it was too tempting to just relax and read in the sitting area, or float in the pool. Having your first cup of coffee on the upstairs deck, overlooking the ocean and listening to the animals (and sometime seeing the monkeys moving around), was as luxurious as it sounds. Siggi was a great host, and greeted us with fruit and drinks waiting in the kitchen, and lots of helpful information. This place is amazing, and we can’t wait to come back.
Perfect Home and Honeymoon!
We stayed at Casa Sol y Sombra for 8 days during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. The house is in a perfect location, you can walk to the great beaches, restaurants and grocery store. The sun deck in the morning drinking coffee and listening to nature is unbelievable, along with the sunsets in the evening. The Pool is so nice and cool, the perfect place anytime of day or night. The house is very private and secure with a safe and locking gates and doors. The breezes and fans in the evenings are perfect, no windows or AC needed! The whole house is concrete, beautifully built and so comfortable with plenty of lounging areas and full kitchen. The owner Siggi and manager April responded to our questions fast and professionally. There was three 5 gallon jugs of drinking water, a six pack of Tona beer, a bottle of wine and champagne, and coffee and milk for the mornings waiting for us. A cold beer and plunge into the pool after traveling all day made it all worth it! Siggi met us at the house, helped us arrange for a rental car, a day on a sailboat, and drew us some maps to great restuarants and beaches. We loved the experience and can't wait to come back again. No reason to look for any other house. This has it all!

Best Family Vacation in the Best House of Santa Teresa !! Excellent Host, Excellent experience!!
We loved the whole experice !!!
The house is absolutely amazing!!! It has everything you may need for your best Family Vacation.
Close to everything: 1 block to a big grocery store, 1 block from the beautiful Santa Teresa Beach, and very close to lots of great restaurants and steps away from the best surf!!!!
The house is beautiful, very clean and well equipped. It has spacious rooms, everything looked brand new, the infinity pool is great for relaxing after the beach and has a spectacular view to the jungle where you can hear and see the monkeys!! The bedrooms are very big and comfortable and you have a breathtaking view of the ocean from the master suite. The best thing was to open my eyes in the morning and see the ocean!! I can say that the house is much better than what is shown in the VRBO add. The open living room and dining room area is just beautiful and nicely decorated, as well as the whole house!! The house is so amazing that we just loved to be there and enjoy the beautiful view you have from every room.
Siggi, the host, is the best host!! She welcomed us with lots of beverages, fresh local fruit, Costa Rica coffee and even an Argentinean Wine!! She is very very nice and helpful !! She was always very responsive when we had questions. She would do everything in her hands for you to have the best experience in Santa Teresa. I would definitively recommend this house and I wish we could come back in the near future!!!
Great location, gorgeous views, gorgeous beach, beautiful house.
Everything was wonderful, and Siggi couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.
"Casa Sol y Sombra", which means Sun and Shade, which it certainly has a good amount of both! You can also add "Peaceful y Quite" for the house sites above the village, tucked in Jungle and Ocean Views, great to Kick back and Relax totally, day and night. Great upper Balcony deck for sunbathing and watching the stars. Private Pool to relax and watch Nature as Monkey's pass by, lots of afternoon 'seista' spots around the house, including day beds and hammocks. The House is also situated perfectly for the Active Adventure Traveler.. super private jungle garden house above the village, steps away from everything Santa Teresa has to offer, including over 50 International Restaurants, Zip Line, SUP rentals, Sail Boat Tour, Fishing Trips, Tortuga Island day Trip, Horseback Riding and much much more.. Being Centrally located is a great advantage for Family's with Teens that wish to explore the area. Right in-between the two great villages of Santa Teresa and MalPais, Surfing Spots steps away, Private Beach's a quick ride or morning walk.. Take a wonderful day trip into the National Park "Cabo Blanco Reserve", where you will surely see every type of Tropical Plant (all clearly identified), and an abundance of Tropical Animals in their natural habitat. We are so fortunate to have a Grocery store that carry's every sort of Import Item for Glutten and Milk sensitive Travelers, as well as a Butcher Shop, Fresh veggies and Local Made Sweets, including Fresh Bakery Breads, Free Range Eggs, and much much more. For Souvenir shoppers you will find an assortment of shops selling local goods to take home to your friends and families.
