About the property

House, Studio + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Great two story house with loft. Open air design with fully equiped kitchen and large downstairs patio and spacious upstairs deck.

Built in 2006, Casa Teka is located 30 yards from a beautiful secluded beach, and a very short walk to a local dining area including Mary's Restaurant. The canopy tour in Malpais, Canopy del Pacifico, and sportfishing boats are less than a 10 minute walk south. Great snorkeling is also a 5 minute drive farther south.

Located at the south end of Mal Pais Casa Teka offers peace and quiet away from the sometimes busy Mal Pais center. The house is fully equiped with TV, DVD player, washer and dryer, linens, towels, a safe for valuables, ceiling and mobile fans, and a complete kitchen. Also, a hammock downstairs for lounging and beach chairs upstairs for catching some sun.

A somewhat private beach in front offers a great opportunity for romantic sunsets and peaceful walks. Also, dont be surprised if you are awoken by monkeys who often hang out in the trees out back.

Property manager located 500 meters from the house, a local bilingual resident since 1997.

Please send a message with any further questions. Look forward to hearing from you!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Teka for 5 days and we had a truly amazing experience. This beautiful home is close enough to town, but far away from the traffic. The only sounds you can hear is the ocean waves crashing on a tranquil beach only steps away and the monkeys and exotic birds playing in the mango trees throughout the lush green garden setting surrounding the property. The large open outdoor deck lets you be one with nature as you sit within the tree canopy. The local market one block away has all the food essentials and supplies that you would need and Mary's restaurant (walking distance) is a great place to treat yourself to dinner. I would recommend Casa Teka for a family vacation, romantic getaway, surf/fishing trip, or anyone who wants to have an authentic Costa Rican experience. The manager Pia took great care of us and we are already looking forward to our next visit. Pura vida.

true Costa Rican experance

  • 5 of 5

Your not going to want to leave this house after only a week. This house is beautiful. It is a true Coata Rican experance. The location is exceptional. It is in walking distance to: the beach, one on the best restaurants in the area Mary's. Mary's has there own organic farm. You can also walk to an excellent surf shop. The owner at Freedom riding SUP is a great guy and teacher. And if that is not enough you can also walk to Canopy tours, saling, and the fish camp. If you don't want to catch your own fish just walk down the road 10 min. and you can buy fresh fish from the fisherman that caught them that morning. The property manager is very pleasant and easy to work with.

Casa Teka

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from spending a week at Casa Teka and enjoyed our stay thoroughly! The home is surrounded by Hibiscus, Coconut Trees, and Mango Trees and is 50 yds from a very secluded beach. We appreciated the knowledge the property manager shared after living in the community for 20 years! I'd suggest renting a quad or 4x4 for the week to get around. Sailing, surfing, fishing, and the canopy tour are all within walking distance. When we felt like being social and hitting the party scene we headed into Santa Teresa but we enjoyed the quiet nights the home had to offer as well. There is also a "soda" and a supermarket really close to the house, as well as Mary's Restaurant which has excellent food. I would suggest the house to anyone from small families to couples that are looking for a nice place that is away from main action of Santa Teresa / Mal Pais but close enough to enjoy it. We even had the pleasure of watching howler monkeys from the deck! If you're looking for an excellent place to stay without breaking the bank, Casa Teka is your casa!

Car: recommended

The house is 20 meters to the beach, a 5 minute walk to sportfishing and the zip line canopy tour in Malpais (Canopy del Pacifico). Located just 50 yards across the street is an ice cream shop, cevicheria, a mini and SUP surf shop which is extremely convenient.

15 minutes to the south there is a secluded beach that is excellent for snorkelling at low tide.

There are 2 extremely good restuarants in the area and several smaller sodas for food options and drinks.
