Playa Santa Teresa house description

Welcome to the pristine white sand beaches, lush green mountains and blue glassy surf waves that make Casa Tortuga in Santa Teresa a natural tropical paradise!

Casa Tortuga enjoys the privacy of it's own 1/2 acre lot, the security of a gated property and the serenity of flowering gardens and mature tropical hardwoods. There is a typical palm roof 'rancho' (gazebo) with hammocks and private swimming pool which you may find hard to get out of to make the short two-minute walk to the beautiful white sand beaches and 80+ degree year round warm water that makes Santa Teresa such a wonderful place. Listing #264308 is the property in between the beach and the house. Listing #101202 is the property next door.

The house is conveniently located in a quiet residential neighborhood in the exclusive north end, about one half-mile south of the world-famous Flor Blanca Hotel and roughly one mile north of the many shops and restaurants in the bohemian surf town of Santa Teresa.

The house is as comfortable as it is functional, and reflects the casual elegance of Costa Rican living. The breezy open social side of the house offers three double sliders to the pool area. A large kitchen with an eat-up counter top bar, a comfortable living room with a sleek and modern couch and a day bed. Also a large bamboo surf rack. Both areas overlook the palm roof terrace, swimming pool, and are surrounded by vibrant tropical gardens.

Down the hall from the social area is the master bedroom suite, which offers a king bed, separate A/C, ample closet space, a large private bathroom and a two double sliders to the outdoor gazebo and pool area.

Upstairs, there's a extra large Master Suite with a king size bed, a queen size bed, a comfy couch, separate A/C unit, closet, 2 double sliders with balcony overlooking the garden and mountains, and a full bathroom.

Also downstairs there's a half bath with a laundry area.

Fully fence yard, pets considered on an individual basis with damage deposit.

Relax, and enjoy the beach, the picturesque sunsets, and all the natural beauty that makes Casa Tortuga in Santa Teresa a truly amazing place.
