A Must Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this house to anyone visiting Santa Teresa. The property managers were excellent - checking in on us every day and arranging any type of excursion/vacation experience we wanted. The housekeeper, Mayling, was fun to converse with and she cooked us a great Costa Rican meal. There was a family of monkeys living in the trees by the house, and I miss waking up to their "barking", along with all the exotic birds. Late April is a great time to go - the beaches we had practically all to ourselves and booking surfing lessons, 4 wheelers for a day, or even fishing was a piece of cake. The hammocks in the house were never empty - a great place to take a nap beneath the cool ceiling fan. We spent most mornings in the pool before heading out for the day. Be sure and visit Ginger's right up the street for the best coffee and french toast going! I would recommend this house to anyone.

Would go back in a minute!!!

  • 5 of 5

Even tough it's been a couple of months, we still reflect daily on the wonderful experience we all enjoyed while staying at Casa Escondida (two grandparents, four young adults and a toddler). The owner, Kristian, greeted us when we arrived with a tour of the home, helpful information about the area and a bowl of yummy local fruit. Throughout our stay he and his staff were so genuinely welcoming, helpful and also respected our privacy. The house is gorgeous and comfy. It is located near restaurants and shopping (including a grocery store full of local charm) but it is also very secluded and secure so we felt we were living in our own special paradise. We often started our days swimming in the salt water crystal clear warm pool and making a breakfast in the well equipped open kitchen that looks out on the pool and native plant garden. The beach down a path right across the street offered excellent surfing, walks, tide pools, and playing in the sand. Kristian was very knowledgeable about local spots and how best to enjoy each moment (taxi to and from airport, bikes, rental vehicles, surfing, grocery store, restaurants, masseuse, yoga, and much more). The first week we chose not to rent vehicles, instead traveling by foot or bike when experiencing the nearby surroundings. The second week, with Kristian's guidance, we rented a car and motorcycles so we could venture out farther to experience neighboring towns and sights. Always ending our day (and sometimes spending practically the whole day) at Casa Escondida was so therapeutic. We felt honored to get to know Kristian and his staff, getting to practice Spanish with the caring housekeeper, Meyling, and learning more of the pura vida ways.

The Quintessential Santa Teresa Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is not your typical VRBO, in the sense that it comes with property managers who are very attentive to your needs at the house, and also are more than willing to act as your visitor's bureau, assisting you with any questions, reservations or recommendations on all things to do in the area. The house also has an onsite maintenance man and maid service. Everyone involved with this property is ultra-friendly and are very invested in the quality of your stay.

This house is all-encompasing to the Santa Teresa experience because some of the best stretch of beach is a 3 minute walk from the front door. It is close and easily accessible to shops and restaurants, so driving is not always necessary. There is no need to go to the wildlife preserve, because they come to you, howler monkeys, parakeets, iguanas (my daughter named them), assorted birds, crabs, etc. It should be noted this house is right next to the main drag, and most of the locals get around on motorcycles and ATVs. Despite it's location to the road, it still feels exclusive when you are onsite, although, you do get the noise from the road. However, that is ubiquitous to the Santa Teresa experience. The open floorpan to this house makes it great place to chill. One afternoon we decided not to go back to the beach, and the house was perfect for just hanging-out by the pool, and laying in the hammocks. The house is also very safe and secure. We slept every night with the doors wide open, and just listened to sounds of the rainforest. If you are planning a trip to Santa Teresa, I highly recommend this house.

The best vacation to date

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from Santa Teresa with my husband and four other friends/family and would highly reccommend not only going to Santa Teresa, but staying at Casa Escondida. The house was gorgeous and slept the 6 of us very comfortably. The pool was a plus and you are literally steps from the beach, which was just gorgeous and peaceful. So far, this was the best vacation to date. Kristian, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. He came by the house a couple of times to see how we were and to suggest delicious places to eat and fun activities to do. There was also a maid, who was there daily to clean the house and make our beds, etc. She was a delight! I highly recommend coming to Santa Teresa and staying at Casa Escondida. Just make sure you talk to Kristian first about specific details on how to find the house, its engligh meaning is hidden house, and was hard to find:) The locals were friendly and the food was outrageously delicioso!! As the locals say, PURA VIDA!! I would go back in a heart beat, we all wish we were still there!!

Great place, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a nine day stay at Casa Escondida. We were two couples and really enjoyed ourselves. The house is beautiful and a few minute walk to the beautiful Playa Santa Teresa. The kitchen is very user friendly and is well stocked with knives and pots and pans. The two bedrooms have A/C and 2 bathrooms. The wi-fi worked very well through out the house. The property is a short walk to a number of restaurants and a few markets. Property is right on the road but well hidden. Therre is some noise from the road, but not really an issue. We would be back in a heart beat.
