About Cristina Sartori Medri

We are an Italian family that currently live in the US. We love to travel and discover different cultures, vacations with friends, surf, ski, yoga and nature in general. We design and build eco sustainable luxury homes in the US, and decided to build our own eco retreat in Costa Rica to have a special place to share with our friends.

Cristina Sartori Medri purchased this villa in 2010

Why Cristina Sartori Medri chose Puntarenas

We travel the world, and when we came across Playa Hermosa we knew we found a real gem! We designed and built this houses with the help of the best locale builders, using the most sustainable materials and woods, keeping the environment and sustainability in mind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cristina - Dahlia, thank you for the introduction to Santa Teresa and loved Batik. Cristina, you have a special touch, great vision, and the homes are really something. The effort you both made to make our time exceptional really made the difference. We miss our breakfast and morning chats with you both, Myra, and waking up with the storms, surf, and monkeys.

We look forward to staying in touch. Dahlia, special thanks for looking after us and we enjoyed meeting your family. You really helped us a lot :-). THANK YOU.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love Batik. We always feel like very welcome family members. Cristina and Isabella know everything about the area and the best activities, restaurants, places to see, what to do on a rainy day! Our entire group had a wonderful time. I hope when our children are ready to marry, that they want to have the wedding here! It is relaxing, invigorating and beautiful, all at the same time.

Our stay at Casa Macondo was incredible. The villas are secured behind a gate, so we felt completely safe. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. The villas are brilliantly designed to bring the outdoors in, and are oriented in a way that affords complete privacy from other guests. The wonderful tropical trail to the beach was pleasant. Dahlia is the on site manager, but I hate to say it that way because she is so much more than that. She's a delightful, knowledgeable and extremely helpful host, guide, translator, etc. She made sure we had everything we needed at all times.

The Nicoya peninsula IS Costa's worth the adventure to make your way to this more remote part of the country.

We can't wait to come back next year.

A little piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Costa Rica and spent 4 nights at Casa Macondo (we did not utilize the Casa Casita - an additional bedroom and bath) and enjoyed every minute of it. The management was wonderful. They were very accommodating and coordinated all our activities and recommended restaurants. The private pool was key! It was so hot that to have the option to jump into the pool at any time of day was wonderful. The beach is a lovely 5 minute walk from the house. They also have all night security at the gate so you feel extremely safe. If you are looking for a relaxing, remote and beautiful location I would highly recommend Casa Maconda.

Casa macondo a batik villa : c'est une maison magnifique avec sa piscine privée dans laquelle nous avons passé un séjour inoubliable. Le site est vraiment superbe la villa est décorée avec beaucoup de goût et faire avec des matériaux moderne ( béton cire au sol, tadlaq aux murs) les pièces sont grandes avec des ouvertures sur la superbe terrasse et piscine en carreaux d'ardoise. L'emplacement est idéal a playa hermosa juste a la sortie de santa teresa a deux pas d une plage superbe par laquelle on accède par un chemin prive en traversant un petit bout de forêt ou viennent la singes hurleurs c'est fantastique. Le service est impeccable ménage tous les matins, possibilité de prendre des cours de surf de louer les planches dense faire livrer des quads ....... Tout y est et dahlia l adorable manager se fait un plaisir de nous rendre la vie facile et agréable. L'accueil de Cristina est très chaleureux. Petit clin d'œil a Cyrillo la gardien d'une gentillesse incroyable. Bref exceptionnel

This property was just amazing! I dream about going back soon:) The home we stayed in was beautifully designed and so peaceful with a hammock for relaxing and outside living that was just what a vacation in Costa Rica should be about. the beach is only a small walk away on a path beneath the coconut trees. It is one of the best beaches around. NO rocks, perfect for relaxing or surfing! A+ no doubt!

Happy Customer

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at Casa Macondo recently. I loved this place! It's so beautifully built with such attention to detail. I loved the feeling of having the indoor area outside yet it was very private. I would have stayed in the house for my entire vacation but I did want to see the beach and do other activities. The beach is a short walk through the rain forest and is very secluded.

Christina set us up with a wonderful guide who taught us how to surf. He also took us horseback riding along the beach and up towards the inland. So beautiful. On another day we snorkled and along with our guide, walked through a protected rain forest to explore the native wildlife.

The property was very well maintained and included security. I would recommend renting an SUV as the villas are located about 20 minutes from town, however there is a market and a few restaurants within walking distance. If you're in to yoga, this is the place to be. I would highly recommend Chistina and her villas to anyone traveling to Costa Rica.
