Santa Teresa Beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

Quiet 2BR Ocean view Villa set in the hills of Santa Teresa, Sleeps 5

Nestled in the hills of Santa Teresa on Costa Rica's lush Nicoya Peninsula, Gumbo Limbo offers 4 ocean view accommodations (other options can be seen in photos). This listing is for our 2BR Ocean View villa which sleeps up to 5 people. This beautiful villa has 2 adjoining rooms, making it perfect for a small group or family. 1 room has a king size bed with small closet and a safe to secure valuables. The 2nd room has a double bed and a single sofa/bed as well as a small refrigerator. There is a large private outdoor bathroom and shower which faces out to jungle surroundings. Don't be surprised if you see a troop of howler monkeys swinging in the trees while you brush your teeth! One of the best features of this villa is the private deck with hammock and sitting area from which you can see panoramic views of Santa Teresa beach and the Pacific Ocean. This deck also overlooks our beautiful infinity pool which you will not want to leave! Some of the most amazing sunsets can regularly be seen from Gumbo Limbo. We look forward to having you!

*Please don't hesitate to inquire about our other accommodation options (Our 1BR villa and 2 ocean view rooms, which can be seen in the photos section)

About Juan Ignacio Salonia

We are two childhood friends in our thirties from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Growing up our passions included travelling, surfing and making new friends.

Hosting people comes naturally to us. Our main goal is to create a space where you can have fun and relax while surrounded by natural beauty. A place where you will be treated like a guest, not a client, and have the best possible time ever in Santa Teresa.

To accomplish that we will provide you with the personal attention that you deserve and the comforts that you need. We want you to feel at home here in paradise. Come and join us…

Why Juan Ignacio Salonia chose Puntarenas

Gumbo Limbo is a special place for sure. Set in the hills of beautiful Santa Teresa, our location is quiet and allows you to escape from the noise and dust, however it is only 600 meters from Santa Teresa beach and town- just a 5 minute drive to some of the best surf breaks and restaurants.

Santa Teresa is one of the best surf spots in Costa Rica. (Ask us about surf instruction/lessons as well as surfboard rental) We also love this property for it's amazing panoramic ocean views.

Gumbo Limbo has energy! You can feel it when you are here. We put a lot of effort into making the place what it is now.

What makes this villa unique

Being set in the hills gives a unique perspective of Santa Teresa. The amazing views and ocean breeze will totally relax you. You will truly feel one with nature here. Wildlife such as howler monkeys, iguanas and all different kinds of birds can regularly be seen at Gumbo Limbo. And sunsets from here are spectacular!!

A bed and breakfast with a great view, very good host

  • 3 of 5

We arrived late in Santa Teresa after having stayed for two weeks in Costa Rica, moving from city to city. We were accustomed to a certain way of living (settling down, cooking our meals, and surfing everyday) When we arrived we were enchanted by the view and the property (cant get here without 4x4) The property has all the features listed in the ad. The pool looked great and the rooms spacious. However, we were a bit taken back by the fact that the only kitchen was the one for the restaurant. There were no indoor bathrooms or AC in the rooms we had rented. We were a bit disappointed by this and talked to the host who was very understanding and helped us in finding an arrangement.

Bottom line: this is a bed and breakfast villa with all the features listed, pictures very true to what you will find. However, it is not a rental in which to settle down and cook your own meals.
