Property description

Casa Monarca is one of the the most celebrated beach house rentals in Santa Teresa's exclusive northend, and for good reason. This 2,500 sq ft, 3-br 3-ba home boasts all the amenities, has an outstanding location, and is an excellent value. There are 2 MBR/ MBA Suites, a chef's kitchen, ample common indoor & outdoor Living and dining spaces, a large terrace and 1/2 acre tropical garden with it's own private swimming pool, just steps to the pristine white sands, warm glassy surf waves and glowing sunsets that make Santa Teresa such a magical place. If the surf is not for you, you can still enjoy long walks at low tide or enjoy your private pool surrounded by lush tropical gardens, or the screened comforts of A/C, wireless internet and satellite TV and full Concierge services, to help you make the most of your vacation, at no additional cost to you.

Casa Monarca was built in 2006 and renovated in 2009, by a well known Costa Rican builder educated at the University of Nebraska, USA. The goal was to bring together casual Costa Rican style living with all of the comforts and safety standards common to North American construction. The result is a complete success and sure to please everyone in your party.

The house is furnished with handmade Costa Rican wicker, bamboo, hardwood and rattan furniture. The MBR/MBA Suite has a king size and full size beds, a large marble bathroom and double 8' sliders out to the terrace, with a private seating area. The second bedroom offers a king size bed, walking closet and a private bathroom. The third bedroom has a bunk bed, ample closet space and a bathroom next door. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking with a full size refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, toaster oven all the necessary utensils, eat-up counter top and much more. The living room is a very nice place to relax, and has a flatscreen 32 Cable TV.

The house is concrete, tile and stone with teak wood and cana brava bamboo finishes, fully screened with aluminum doors and windows with A/C and ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and kitchen/living room areas. The terrace has LR, DR, hammock areas and a large gas lava rock grill, all overlooking the swimming pool area. Casa Pelicano is surrounded by beautiful mature tropical gardens, on its own private ½ acre lot with colorful flowers, cactus, almond trees, palms and a bermuda grass lawn. There’s an outdoor shower for rinsing off the beach sand.

Mariposa property is a gated 3-house complex. If you wish to accommodate more than one family please contact us or visit our website for more information. The property is private, clean, meticulously maintained and very secure, as Casa Pelicano offers an alarm, laptop safes and a nighttime watchman.

Within walking distance you'll find a supermarket and restaurants.

If there is anything at all that we can do to make your upcoming visit a total success, please don't hesitate to ask

We look forward to your stay! Pura vida!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My Dad was an executive w/Sheraton & Omni hotels, so I grew up in & @ the hospitality business. I first came to CR, in '96 to guide the Pacuare river with Rios Tropicals, while on summer break from grad school. I quickly fell in love with CR & came back every summer since. In 2000 I moved to CR for a year & began 'The Search'. In 2002 I was able to transition back to CR full time & purchased this magnificent beachfront parcel in '03 w/the sale of my Aspen property. I am an ex-Aspen, Colorado foreign language teacher, who is actively involved as a volunteer at the local public school. I have dedicated my full time efforts to developing and running a first class beach home rental operation, where people can come and relax, renew and enjoy one of the prettiest beaches in anywhere in the world...Santa Teresa, CR. Mariposa Vacation Homes, is the result of many years of dedicated work to achieve that goal.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Santa Teresa:
I lived in Hawaii for 3 years & have traveled extensively both abroad & around Costa Rica, looking for the most beautiful beach in the world, where the surf is friendly & consistent. I decided to settle in Santa Teresa because it was one of the few places that actually surpassed my criteria. It's pristine white sand beaches, glowing sunsets, wonderful surf, nice people and magical tropical atmosphere must be experienced first-hand in to be truely appreciated !

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Mariposa Vacation homes reflects a passion for excellence and respect for nature. Our goal here is simple: to provide every guest everything they need to enjoy the best beach vacation ever ! Our homes are comfortable quality constructions, with modern conveniences, beautiful gardens, very private and steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, wit a small intimate staff to cater to your needs... What more could you ask for ? We welcome you to come and experience the beauty and magic of Santa Teresa, and Costarican 'PuraVida' hospitality.
