Santa Teresa Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 8 Bedrooms, 7.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11-19)

LA CASONA is a magnificent, rustic villa for rent in Santa Teresa on one of the most beautiful beachfront properties in the whole area with surfing right in front. We built La Casona with the help of skilled local carpenters of locally harvested timber, hand milled on the property.

La Casona, which means Stately Home in Spanish, is a stunning, and supremely comfortable Costa Rican Colonial style building with rustic beams, polished white concrete and teak floors, high ceilings and airy verandas that encircle the building. It has five air conditioned bedrooms all facing the pool and the ocean and 5 bathrooms. Sleeps up to 11 guests. With its magical guest house The Palm Grove, which has an additional three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the property can sleep up to 19 guests. The Palm Grove is situated on the same property and has its own pool. It is close but totally independent from La Casona.

The hacienda rests on three and a half beach-front acres. It is furnished in exotic Tropical style with beautiful and comfortable rattan sofas and armchairs and offers a fantastic chef's kitchen with professional 6-burner gas stove and huge stainless steel fridge/freezer. Many furnishings and textiles come from our travels around the world.

There is a deep pool, pool-table, day-beds and many hammocks for lounging as well as Palm-roofed Ranchos. There is a pool table and a large Yoga platform that accommodates twelve yogis. The beach-front grounds abound with Coconut Palms, Mango trees, Papaya, Water Apple, Banana and Platano trees drawing a lot of visiting Monkeys, squirrels and exotic birds. We have our own fruit!

There is WIFI and a film screen with projector and a huge library of DVDs.

La Casona has excellent surfing right in front and our guests have a large choice of activities for all ages, from Adventure Excursions on Horseback along the beaches to flying through the tree tops on a zip line or relaxing with a massage under the palm trees or a private Yoga or Pilates session or at dawn or sunset. We can also provide Surf Instruction, Beauty Treatments, fishing, Horseback Riding and Meditation.

We also do Spectacular Weddings! We have an amazing Moroccan tent for large events.

Daily maid service, Laundry, Chef available by request (local Costa Rican dishes or International Cuisine). Resident Caretaker and security on the property. We can provide Baby Sitting. We are happy to assist with transfers by air and road as well as Car Hire and any other concierge services you might need.

LA CASONA rents for $1200-$3000 Per Night, $7400-$21,000 Per Week, depending on the number of guests and whether the guest house is included or not.

About anna lundstrom

Here I am with my Coconut! I am Swedish/British, a former journalist, designer and globetrotter. I and my family have lived in Stockholm, London, Paris, The Napa Valley (in the Wine business) and in wonderful San Francisco. I Speak English, French, German, Swedish and Spanish. Our whole family loves to surf and to ride on the beach.

We own two more beachfront properties, the romantic Bungalow Supervista and the huge Sea Ranch, Papa Pochote, but La Casona is our Castle!

We take very good care of our guests and have the highest standards regarding discretion, privacy, comforts and pleasure.

We love Costa Rica and searched high and low in South America, Central America and the Caribean until we found Paradise here in Santa Teresa.

Pura Vida!

anna lundstrom purchased this house in 2004

Why anna lundstrom chose Puntarenas

Santa Teresa is Special! Not surprisingly our beach was recently voted 'The Most Beautiful in Central and South America. Unspoilt, endlessly long and white, our beach has the feeling untouched nature that today's visitor seeks. We had traveled all over Hawaii, Mexico, The Caribbean and Asia seeking a little piece of paradise. We found it here!

What makes this house unique

Our property is blessed with at least 30 Mango trees, an abundance of Coconut Palms and many other fruit trees which all draw monkeys, exotic birds and squirrels. We are close to the shops but still totally private and protected on our huge secret estate. We have fantastic surf in front of the house and a beautiful Yoga Platform overlooking the waves.

Just perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I put together a wellness retreat for 12 of us. This estate was just perfect for us!!...We started our morning with a run on the beach, then yoga right on the yoga platform, followed by a delicious protein shake that we made in the large, clean kitchen. We relaxed throughout the day with massages on the yoga platform, or shopping in the village, or exploring the land (ATV tour, cliffs, etc.). The evening was spent with a pilates workout, a sunset drink on the beach, and family style dinner around the large beautiful table. Anna and her staff were great and we all had the trip of a lifetime. We will be back!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

When we want to go to the best vacation place we have ever been to, we return to la Casona in Santa Teresa. We are travelers and because of this we live to experience beaches all over. We always do and we always return here. There is no other place that gives you waves, shells, gourmet ( and kid friendly ) restaurants ( and bars) to walk to on the beach, tide pools, adventure walks, yoga and relaxation next to your own pool ( not to mention the monkeys ). We have been here about 4 times with different families and friends. Do not arrive expecting ultimate luxury. The accommodations are perfectly clean and adequate but slightly bare ( which we find to be part of the charm of the house ). The services are amazing. We have had yoga teachers, massage therapists, and horses delivered right to the house. The horse back riding is amazing. You actually get to run. The town of Santa Teresa is also right outside the front gate with a grocery store across the street and the international pillar ion of Santa Teresa Awaiting on the other side.

An Argentinian family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We met at this paradisiac place to cellebrate a family reunion.

We were planning on doing lots of activities, but as soon as we stepped into La Casona and Palm Grove, we never walked farther than going to the beach to surfing. We never felt like looking around since everything was perfect just there.

The property is incredibly beautiful with very nicely picked furniture and very well placed decoration.

Just laying by the pools in the nice everlasting weather is relaxing.

Thanks Anna and staff for making our stay unique.

The Tomasian's

  • 5 of 5

Great house & staff! I was pleased with the cleanliness and consistency of the staff...great security, always groomed grounds, and timely house keeping. The home is really special, and I was quite amazed. The owner showed a high level of concern for us having a great vacation experience by leaving us great contacts, and places to go. Santa Teresa is just such an amazing and magical place...great scenery, great places to eat, and so relaxing!

We will be back! THANKS ANNA!!

slice of secret heaven

  • 5 of 5

When I think now of my favorite place in the world my mind instantly travels to La Casona. It is the most beautiful and exotic place tucked in a place that is just paradise. I stayed for a week with my family and closest friends and had my wedding on beach and our reception at the house. It was fantastic and Anna, her family and work crew did everything to make sure things ran so smoothly it was the most magical week of my life. Anna turned out to be my wedding goddess and helped me with everything to the extent where I didnt need a wedding planner and everything went smoothly and it was more beautiful than I had ever imagined. I could not recommend or praise this slice of secret heaven enough. Anyone who stays there can be counted among the lucky. There is the most amazing cook if you would like one, the staff keeps the house in perfect shape and did so much for my wedding- the staff is just incredible. Your in easy walking distance of great restaurants, grocery store, bank, beach, surfing and easy public transportation. Anna and her staff will help arrange whatever you are interested and suddenly so all your travel worries dissipate. The area draws the most interesting people from all over the world and yet remains hidden. Being there makes you feel like you stumbled on to a secret paradise that only a few people get to experience. Staying on that beach for 2 weeks and in La Casona for one was enough to snag our heart. Like many people in the area we are already planning our trip back and are counting down the days!
