Luxury 4-Bedroom Beachfront Villa with a Pool
Fronting the stunning white sand beach of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica and backed by lush tropical jungle, the four-bedroom Calista Boutique Beachfront Villa offers a vacation experience like no other.
Step out your front door and be right on the sandy beach facing the deep blue Pacific Ocean. Calista Boutique Beachfront Villa is tucked in a hidden bay off the main road in the center of Santa Teresa. Very private, yet accessible, Calista is close to shops and restaurants and all of the best surfing spots. Even better, you have a front row seat for Santa Teresa’s famous sunsets.
Framed by shady coconut palms, the villa features four separate bedroom units, each with its own private bathroom, and can accommodate eight persons comfortably. A roofed open-air kitchen and living area indulge you in the comforts of luxury tropical living. Dining seating is for up to 10 persons and a BBQ station is perfect for sunset feasting. Beautifully handcrafted from locally-sourced tropical woods, the villa is elegantly appointed with luxury décor. An infinity pool in a direct line to the sea runs down the middle of the villa. Lounge chairs and hammocks complete your relaxation.
Our dedicated concierge helps make your vacation even more extraordinary. How about gourmet meals cooked and served by our private chef? Or horses brought to your door for a ride along the beach? Our concierge can help you arrange everything from tours to rental cars and other transportation.
Its privileged spot in Santa Teresa makes Calista Boutique Beachfront Villa your ideal Costa Rica vacation getaway. Amid nature’s spectacular beauty, the only sounds you will hear are ocean waves and perhaps the occasional call of a howler monkey in the trees. This charming seaside paradise shines like a pearl.

Beautiful and you couldn’t pick a better spot to be away from it all yet still close to it all!
Calista is an amazing home situated right on the beach and close to town. You have everything you need to be active or simply do nothing at all. The staff was amazing and planned all our outings for us and they were all top notch. I came with my two kids 15 and 16 and they said they wouldn’t change a thing and both had a great time. Definitely try their chef and their maid service and caretakers were great people. We have stayed in houses around the world and this is one of the best!
First time to Costa Rica!
We stayed at Calista (March 27th-April 2nd) and enjoyed every moment. So much more fun than staying at a hotel. Everyone (2 adults, 1 child, 2 teenagers) had plenty of room if they wanted space to themselves, but beautifully allowed all to come together as a group. We were a very active group and Adriana helped us navigate, plan, and execute all of our activities. We had an issue with our rental car and she also helped us each day with the arranging of taxis. Renting a car would seem difficult, unless you are familiar with the area.. and the potholes!! Oh Dios Mio!!
Some things to note if you stay here:
- There are 4-5 iguanas that live under the deck of the bungalow on the right side. We adored them and fed them lettuce for breakfast each day.
-If your feet are wet from the pool, the floor can be slippery.
- It is not enclosed, so if food drops on the counter or floor there are ants. Nothing you can do about that because of the architecture but just thought it was worth a mention.
-You can rent boogie boards for the week... the ocean is very fun!
-Best restaurant is Koji (in our opinion)
-Santa Teresa and the surrounding area in mainly a cash town. If you plan on using an ATM, know they sometimes run out of money.
- Adriana organized a private flight for us from San Jose to Tambor and it was quite the experience!! I even got the chance to help fly the plane. Beautiful view over Tortuga Island.. and it saved 5 hours of driving. However you travel, be sure it is reputable as we saw people get stranded from a scam.
- Activities that Adriana helped us arrange:
Fishing with Aaron (he's a blast). We caught fish and he came over (for an additional fee) and cooked us dinner that same night.
Renting ATVs- if you do this, bring bananas because it is very dusty and hard to breathe. Also wear sunglasses or goggles.
Zip lining- so fun!! The place we went had all sorts of fun positions and sell you lots of pictures they take for $20.
Wildlife at Curu with a tour guide (we saw many more animals in Curu than Playa Blanco). The tour guide is $20 per person on your trip, but worth it... we had pineapples with us and fed monkeys for quite some time.
Snorkeling with Miquele... he and his crew are simply amazing. He even taught us to scuba dive unexpectedly and he was the most patient and kind guide EVER! Both of my kids also learned.. my boyfriend and son even saw some harmless sharks in an underwater cave (the highlight of my son's experience).
Amazing Place!! a WOW
This house is located right on the beach and is simply spectacular. We had 2 families and a friend stay here and its a very spacious house that is designed for privacy but with a central social area with a very nice open kitchen, dining and lounge area. The owner Hanit is very nice and stopped by to say hello and our host Adriana was wonderful and took care of all arrangements. Great people!! Makes a huge difference. Easy beach walking distance to restaurants/bars and to local stores. Short drive to other restaurants. Amazing to wake up and take a dip in the ocean. Place is very well kept and owners have done a great job in designing it for maximum enjoyment and comfort. A real gem!
Thank you Shay !!
It was a big pleasure to meet and host you and your beautiful family .
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and loved Calista .
Really looking forward for your next visit .

Absolute best vacation rental ever!
I rent a lot through many different sites, and this rental BY FAR is the best vacation rental so far. While beautiful, the pictures don't even adequately depict how beautiful the house it. I was worried that even though it said that it was beach front that it would still be obstructed or far from the beach but it was right on the beach with your own access. The house itself was gorgeous, with common areas being open so you feel like you're outdoors all the time, and the bedrooms were all great with air conditioning and private bathrooms. It was modern styling and very clean. The service team that came and cleaned each day were wonderful, as was Adriana, the manager and Hanit, the owner. They checked on us many times, even fixing a broken lock (that we broke!) and arranged for laundry service and horseback riding on the beach for our family. The private pool was perfect, and wifi worked great for those of us who had to work a little during the vacation. It was wonderful, and I really hope to go back soon!
Thank you Adriana, Hanit, and team for a wonderful time!
Thank you Christina !!
We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our beach house.
Hope to see you all again soon,
Hanit and Adriana
