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

  • 5 of 5

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!

My friends and i rented this house for a week and LOVED it. You have everything that you need within walking distance, truly! The view of the beach from the kitchen is gorgeous. The house was clean and we felt so safe and comfortable. You can see a lot of wildlife in the yard. We saw; iguanas, howler monkeys, squirrels, and a sea turtle on our walk home from the sunday beach party at Rocamar. My ten year old son got to play with many dogs on the beach and even borrowed Tommy's boogie board while my partner surfed.

I can't review the house without mentioning Tommy and how helpful he was. He truly has love and respect for Costa Rica, which was important to me being a native. Thanks Tommy!
