Awesome location, great host
My family of two adults and two teens stayed at Tres Olas during Easter. A few months prior to our arrival, we asked to shift our arrival date and stay longer. Tommy was very understanding and accommodating. He promptly answered all our questions prior to arrival.
The house is a nice mix of traditional Costa Rican architecture w/ modern amenities such as A/C in the primary bedrooms, plenty of hot water, and robust WiFi. All areas of the house were spacious and clean. Even with more than one bed in the bedrooms, we found the rooms to be very spacious.
Tommy and his caretakers were very good at respecting our privacy while still being readily available whenever we needed them. My family felt very safe and secure.
The oceanfront location is what really sets Tres Olas apart. It was great to be able to stroll down to the beach for a surf, a walk, or to sun, and then back to the house in less than 30 seconds. Sitting on the back porch sofa watching the ocean waves through the palm trees was one of our favorite activities. The hammocks and loungers were also very popular. Watching the sunset is a major event in Santa Teresa and we had front row seats.
For a small fee, Elizabeth, one of the caretakers, cooked a fish my son had caught and provided a traditional meal. It was the highlight of our visit and I found myself eating the leftovers days afterward. I only wish we'd asked her cook for us earlier in the visit. Elizabeth also kept the house spotless during our stay. She washed and folded our clothes mid-stay, which was very much appreciated. We tipped her appropriately.
The house is located near multiple restaurants, shops, pharmacy, and a small grocery store. We walked everywhere and rarely used our car, except to visit other towns. Several rental shops (surfboards, ATV's, bikes, etc) are within 100 yards of Tres Olas.
Tommy was a wealth of information and a gracious host. I've already started checking school calendars and flights to determine when I can go back!!!
On the Beach
It doesn't get any closer, great surf out front every day we were here. House was on the sand, comfortable with indoor and outdoor space, great open kitchen. Great value for the money. Good central location. Our host Tommy was super helpful. Playa Santa Teresa is a gem, beautiful beaches and sunsets everynight. We can't wait to come back.
It was perfect!
We absolutely loved staying at Tres Olas! It was beautifully decorated, comfortable and very conveniently located on the beach and near town for easy walking to the shops, restaurants and the market. Tommy, the host, was wonderfully helpful in every way from calling taxis to recommending restaurants and providing information about the local culture and people. Elizabeth, the housekeeper, was adorable and so nice to have around. She cooked some amazing meals for us and kept the house spotless. Also, we felt safe at the house and when we left, knowing our belongings were secure. Really can’t recommend it enough and hope to return some day!
This property is PARADISE! Could not believe our good fortune. Tommy was WONDERFUL host.
Steps from gorgeous sandy beach. Surfers and vacationioners DREAM come true. The view and sound of ocean is breathtaking. Excellent restaurants and stores in short walking distance. The house is beautiful and spacious just as the photos show. Tommy thinks of everything you would need. We hope to return again soon. Our family of 6 adults loved our time together here.
Our own Costa Rican Paradise at Tres Olas Beach House
We took our 4 grown children on a family adventure of a lifetime to Costa Rica - booked at Tres Olas Beach House in Playa Santa Teresa on a whim, hoping to get some much needed beach time in. We were thrilled with the house, the location, and the exceptional service we received from our hosts! Yes, Tres Olas Beach House is truly a stone's throw from an incredible, sandy beach with some amazing surf opportunity, and although we were just yards away from a public beach, we had complete privacy at the house and property. The Main Street of Santa Teresa can be a bit dusty and noisy at times, but the location of Tres Olas is off of the main street making you feel as if you are in your own private beach retreat.
The house was clean, with necessary amenities and the rooms were spacious (not that we spent much time in the house!). The outdoor living area, which included a patio with seating, 3 hammocks, and 2 groupings of lounge chairs with cushions, was where we gathered for coffee and spent the evening after watching the sunset on the beach. One night we even barbecued some delicious mahimahi we bought from a fisherman just bringing in his catch.
One of the owners, Tommy, checked in with us frequently to see if we needed anything and he was always available when we had questions about the surf, where to eat, or about things to do. He definitely pointed us towards the best ceviche in all of Costa Rica! We also felt safe and secure during our time there which was super important to us. We can't say enough good things about our stay, and our entire family is anxious to return!
Tres Olas Beach House is located directly on the beautiful white sand beaches of Playa Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. World class waves and miles of beach are at your doorstep. The house is also located to many restaurants, shops, and markets, all within waking distance. Tres Olas Beach house is perfect for couples, families, small groups and of course surfers.
