Guestbook comments from the owner

יצאנו לקוסטה ריקה שלוש משפחות עם ילדים קטנים ובוגרים .

שיצרנו קשר עם מלי היא דאגה לפקס אותנו על המקומות והאתרים שאליהם כדאי לנו להגיע במסגרת הזמן הנתון, ולעזור לנו לטוות את מסלול הטיול.

מלי והצוות שלה ליוו אותנו מהרגע שנחתנו בסאן חוזה.

למן הרגע הראשון שנחתנו עייפים ורעבים והיינו צריכים המלצה למסעדה שתתאים לכל הקבוצה מגדול ועד קטן - הרגשנו שאנחנו בידיים טובות לקחנו את ההמלצה בחום ונהננו.

הנהג שאותו צוותה לנו מלי היה איש נעים הליכות ומקסים שהתאים את עצמו אלינו ותרם לנו בידע שלו על המקום התרבות והטבע. והמלונות שהומלצו לנו בהחלט קלעו למטרה ושירתו את רצוננו.

שהגענו לסמטה תרזה הרגשנו שהגענו לחלקת אלוהים קטנה !

הכפר עממי ופשוט לצידו של חוף ים מרהיב

צדפים גלים גבוהים וטבע שהאדם לא מפר את שלוותם.

שתי הווילות קסומות ומזמינות

קרובות בכמה עשרות מטרים לחוף הים ולפאב , הן מצויידות בכל הדרוש להתארח וגם להרגיש נוח ממש כמו בבית.

התרגשנו שמצאנו שולחן שבת שחיכה לנו ערוך ומוכן עם יין נרות וחלות.

מלי דאגה לידע אותנו בכל מה שהמקום יכול לספק לנו אטרקציות גלישה מסעדות בתי קפה ועוד...

בקיצור מלי אין עליך אשה נדירה

מלכת הכפר !

ת ו ד ה ענקית על הכל

החוויות שעברנו יזכרו לדורות

כנראה גם סימני העקיצות של חרקי קוסטה ריקה. 🐜🐜🐜

Best Rental Ever

  • 5 of 5

We tried to drive around (not recommended at all) since we missed the ferry from Puntarenas and ended up going through a life changing adventure that put us about 4 hours late of our expected arrival time. Hagit left us the key and came by in the morning to say hi and see if we needed anything. Every bit of the stay was awesome, the daily maid service, the pool guys, water delivery, Hagit checking in on us, you name it and it was taken care of. We felt very pampered.

I wish we had stayed at Villa Bonita our second week in Costa Rica, but we moved to a house in Playa Hermosa and the difference slapped us in the face. No maid service, no paper towels, no soap, no trash bags, stained sheets, cat hair on the pillows with 6 cats trying to raid our house, etc. It made us miss the luxury of Villa Bonita.

If you are thinking of booking here and are hesitant, don't be. It will be the time of your life. We met the neighbors staying at the beach front villa next door and they told us how much better our place was, so much so that their kids played at our villa more than their own. Better pool, better AC, more privacy in the pool and just plain nicer.

Emilya, Hagit, you run a top notch operation and I really hope that we can stay in your Villa Bonita again in the future. My three boys had the time of their lives. Thank you!

The best place to stay in Santa Teresa

  • 5 of 5

This place was beautiful. The home itself is air conditioned and the beds were comfortable. The covered patio and the cabana were cozy. We had so many places to relax in outside. The pool was wonderful and was cleaned at least twice while we were there. The daily maid service was nice. She changed our towels out each day and made the beds. The beach is right there to walk to and watch the sunset each night (highly recommended!) but the house has a fenced yard so it feels very private. The homes are in a gated location with a security guard who patrols at night so we felt very safe. Hagit arranged tours to Tortuga Island and surf lessons. She also checked in with us often to see if we needed anything or how our excursions went. She also recommended restaurants. The owner, Emylia, rented ATVs for us, which you must do in advance because they are very popular there. The roads are dirt roads so you need a land rover or ATV. I read some reviews that talked about the outdoor kitchen. That is not a negative feature at all. It's attached to the house and easy to access. I also read about the music from the restaurant but that didn't bother us. It wasn't really loud, didn't go all night, and we were tired at the end of the day anyway. Our friend, who is from Costa Rica, helped us find this house. He said it's the best in Santa Teresa and he was right! This was the best family vacation we've every had.

Villa Bonita was amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

I was so lucky to spend 5 nights in Villa Bonita at Banana Beach Bungalows in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. The Villa was gorgeous, comfortable, and private. With our own pool, beautiful large shaded patio, and comfortably air conditioned rooms, we were always able to stay cool in the hot and humid March weather. The Villa was located only steps from the Banana Beach bar and restaurant, serving amazing drinks and food on the beach. The most appealing feature for me was the location of the Villa only steps to my favorite surf break in Santa Teresa.

Each day the Villa was cleaned by friendly staff, and the owners & managers checked in daily and were available to assist with any questions or needs that might arise. I definitely recommend these accommodations to anyone seeking a peaceful, beautiful beachfront vacation. The Villas easily accommodate families with small children, and the owners are very family friendly. I hope to stay here on many surf trips in the future!!

Unexpected little gem in Santa Teresa!

  • 5 of 5

I am always looking for beach front properties in Santa Teresa with great location . This was perfect ! Right next to the Banana Beach Cafe , and very close to my favorite restaurant Katana.

The bedrooms where super comfortable and the owners were great! The staff that works at the villa are very hands on! The cleaning lady is super friendly. There are lots of little places to relax and hang out!

Will certainly rent here again!

Look no further! If you are thinking about Santa Teresa for your vacation- BANANA BEACH IS THE PLACE TO STAY! I cannot say enough good things about the Banana Beach!! The resort itself was beautiful but the friendly and outgoing staff made our trip unforgettable. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. We were a group of 20 people and rented both the Villa Bonita as well as couple bungalows, the villa was cozy and luxurious as well as the bungalows , and it had everything we needed and then some! The cleaning staff was fabulous and that’s not easy job with a large group of kids. The Banana Beach grill has delicious and fresh food and shakes and the entire atmosphere is just heavenly! (Not to mention the great restaurant staff which are awesome) During our stay we had a medical emergency and they were so helpful in every way that I cannot thank them enough. If it wasn’t for their help during this emergency we would have had to end our vacation immediately. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for an amazing and relaxing vacation. Thank you again Banana Beach!!
