Best place to stay in Santa Teresa!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at the Calista, and are so so happy we chose to stay here! You cannot beat the location -- steps away from the beach and also walking distance to wonderful restaurants/grocery store/bars in town. The bungalow was beautiful and the perfect size for two. I cannot say enough about this place -- would have been disappointed staying anywhere else! Hanit and Julie were so gracious and helpful! They provided us with so many recommendations and tips that made our stay in Santa Teresa so memorable. We're already talking about planning a trip back next year, and wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Lovely beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent four very relaxing and comfy days at Calista. I did a lot of research to find the perfect romantic beachfront getaway and we were not disappointed. The bungalow was nicely laid out and equipped with just about anything you need. The poster bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with a two person shower and the towels were of a nice quality (important for the avid traveler). The deck with a hammock overlooks what feels like a private beach. There were days we only saw a handful of people. It was amazing to get up in the morning and swim in the ocean and then be able to shower off the sand and salt in an outside shower. There was internet available in the bungalow which made keeping in touch a nice option. The host Hanit and assistant Julie were super kind and accommodating. The cleaning lady came regularly and did a great job. I owned a vacation rental and know how hard it is to meet expectations. We have no complaints and only great memories from our trip.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I have spent 2 weeks at the Calista beachfront bungalow which is:

- Amazingly located (literally on the beach and very close to the main road, shops, restaurants etc)!

- Beautiful, the place is so charming

- Well equipped - you therefore have the option of cooking and eat on the porch with the priceless view

- Safe: not that there is anything to be afraid of in Santa Teresa but it is nice to know that there is a guard every night from 6pm to 6am.

- Although there is no reception, Julie is in charge of your wellbeing and will help you if you have any request/question. She is a real treasure and takes better care of everything than a receptionist would in a hotel. She is so helpful.

- The cleaning ladies are coming everyday and do a great job

I would recommend this place 100%, I did not have one complain about it during my stay and will personally come back as soon as I can!

Magnificent Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Calista was nothing short of pure bliss!

The location is unbeatable- just meters from the ocean. The bungalow is super comfy, has everything you need, the bathroom is very spacious, with funky double shower. Myself and my 11 years old daughter washed away the sea salt while chatting:)))

The balcony in front of it is gorgeous, with hammock and table, and chairs, and small garden with living creatures going about their little lives:D

The owner, Hanit, is super friendly, warm, positive person, and her assistant, Julie is amazing too! She was very responsive and helpful!

It wasn't our first time to Costa Rica- we are coming here regularly, and had stayed in quite a few nice places, but this one- it's our favourite one from now on, and you will see WHY!

Have a blissful time!!!!

Beautiful Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for only 2 nights and wish we had been able to stay much longer. The location is perfect, the host, Hanit, is very responsive and helpful. Her suggestion for surf lessons, breakfast, dinner and massages on the patio were all terrific. Already looking to be back next year.
