Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Kevin,

Well, we are finally home and feeling back to "normal" life so I wanted to take a moment and send you a big "Thank You" for letting us stay at your gorgeous property and experience Santa Theresa. We had a fabulous time. As you probably know, we stayed almost a week at the property. We went to Montezuma twice and loved the hiking and waterfalls. We absolutely LOVED the food everywhere we went, but especially each night as we tried a different place to eat along the dusty Santa Theresa streets. We rented boogie boards and enjoyed the waves and spent afternoons in the hammocks by the ocean, reading and napping. The rooms were beautiful--comfortable and cozy....

A very quiet and private and beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

My friend Laura and I had a most delightful nearly 3 week stay here.

On the northern end of the town of Santa Teresa - which was perfect for the seclusion and peace it brought.

Staff was amazing in their helpfulness - especially Glori.

Sweet traditional bungalow with lush plantings providing privacy and lots of nearby bird songs. Great large outdoor yet private shower. Very short walk across property to ideal beach - much quieter than the area nearer town. Two hammocks near same, in shade often, for lounging.

Approx. 15 minute walk along beach and then up to main road to large grocery. Longer walk to busier part of town - where we very rarely went. We largely stayed put and relaxed in the sublime setting.

Simple shared kitchen that is open air and also has large handsome dining table adjacent on which we had a couple larger meals/dinners with the friends we made in the area - perfect!

Very good restaurants nearby - especially Cafe Sociale - which is just off this property to the south and a favorite of locals and could not be beat for breakfast or lunch. Osa is a fine spot for dinner - 10 minute walk south if that.

We always slept with the doors wide open and the ceiling fan on and had no use for AC - although we gathered that is in the offing soon soon for 'our' bungalow and has already been put in place of the other unit here.

Surf in nearly constant along this entire shore (amazing sound) so one should use caution regarding currents and rip tides. We swam every day though - paying attention to conditions and not venturing far from shore or near rocks to the north.

We rented a 4-wheeler for one day - thanks to Glori - and explored - but otherwise had no interest in leaving such a wonderful vacation spot.

We thank the owners and the caretakers and the cleaning staff for providing such a great get away for us both!!

A little piece of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in January of 2017. It is by far on our top 10 list of places we have traveled to. If you were like us, searching tons of different sites and reviews for places to stay, just stop now and book this! The bungalow we stayed in was newly renovated (I think the construction noise the previous reviewer mentioned was to finish our bungalow before we arrived). We were awakened each morning at sunrise to the sounds of the jungle coming alive, and lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the surf. The beach is only a couple hundred yards from the bungalow, and is very private, most mornings there were only several people out enjoying the waves. We rented a 4-wheeler, which was awesome, as it is a long (but very enjoyable) walk along the beach to the town center. Our bungalow was kept very clean, our housekeepers were very through. Gloriana was quick to respond to help with anything we needed, and knew all the best places and things to do in the area. We enjoyed our stay here, and hope to come back again soon!

The worst vacation I have ever had. Please read before you book this place

  • 1 of 5

The description of this place says quiet charming secluded but what we got was not that at all. Friday when we showed up we were informed that men would be on the property doing construction work. Saturday at 7am 3 motorcycles and a few men on bikes show up and are there till sundown. I reach out to the owner to try and get this resolved but by Tuesday I asked to have Hanit Selekter from Cala luxury vacation homes, they are the ones that manager the property, to please come over so we could talk. I explained to her how this was not at all what I paid for. I felt very uneasy changing, taking a shower etc.. with 4-6 strange men just feet away from my villa. The management company was very rude and told me to go find another place to stay that they needed to finish the work. I final got them to take the workers off the property late Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday and Thursday were great no workers and sounds of power tools. On Thursday night I get a message from Hanit that the workers will resume on Friday. Once again 4-6 men there all day till 8pm when finally my son who speaks some Spanish explained to them that we were trying to go to sleep we had a long travel day in the morning to get home. out of the 8 days I stayed I got 2 days free of construction work being done. There were other issues as well like being given the wrong key to the safe and when I sent a message so I could get the right one it took close to 10 hours to be answered. I was forced to take all valuables with me on the beach (which was a pain) we had no hot water to wash dishes with. We were also told that the big bottled water dispenser was for our use and would be refilled if needed, that never happened. The whole experience was terrible. We had no peace and quiet on the property like I was told. I only gave 1 star because you have to give at least 1 star to submit a review.

Pura Vida Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Escape to Pura Vida .The Santa Teresa Beaches just right outside the property were beautiful to enjoy a morning walk into town or amazing sunset.. The Bungalows were a great setting with a shared kitchen area which our group of 7 were able to come together and relax and cook our meals. The property manager Yadira , was great and gave some great suggestions for local restaurants and shopping.. The howler Monkeys' greeted us every morning,as well as the sweet sound of the birds and crackling approach of iguanas and as well as the squirrels hopping about. We had a nice time and enjoyed the life of relaxation.

Simply Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins for a week. We loved the fact that it was literally steps to a quiet, unspoiled, beautiful beach. Every evening we'd take a glass of wine out to the beach to watch the amazing sunset.

The cabin was comfortable and perfect for our needs. We left the windows and doors open all night and never felt uncomfortable. The shared kitchen is a unique experience. We enjoyed preparing our meals there and this was a perfect opportunity to get to know the people in the other cabin. If you're craving a rustic, outdoor, unplugged experience this is the place for you!

A magical, tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

Although a bit rustic, this place is totally awesome. Sleeping to the sound of the surf is incredible and the open air kitchen made for a very charming and unique experience. We did interface with howler monkey, iguanas and (friendly) neighborhood dogs. The only negative is that one of the cabins doesn't have good air circulation so we slept with windows and doors open. We were a little nervous about spiders and snakes but didn't have any unsettling night encounters. If you want a traditional experience, this is not place and neither is Santa Teresa. If you want a charming, local experience surrounded by nature and beauty, this is the ideal spot. There were 5 of us and all would like to come back for a repeat stay. Pura Vida, indeed!
