Property description

A seamless fusion of rustic tropical with comfortable elegance...

Blue Surf Sanctuary is a delightful oasis comprised of four high end, truly gorgeous Bungalows, designed to be utilized as one 'house' or 'unit' for family gatherings, vacationing with friends or private retreats OR to be rented separately. Each bungalow is decorated with its own theme using recycled hardwoods, bamboo, banana leaf, rattan and all natural and recycled materials, offer our guests gorgeous, cozy lodging. We are located right at Suck Rock, a famous surf break in Costa Rica and we are within steps of stunning white sand beaches hosting some of the best surf and breath taking sunsets in Costa Rica .

We are happy to Rent ONE BUNGALOW or all four for your own customized getaway.

Located at the far end of Northern Santa Teresa, near the most distinctive small hotels and retreats..far enough to feel the seclusion offered at the pristine beach but close enough to run into town for a coffee, a night out or to check out the new small and quaint shopping area with an ambient coffee house and high end gift shop.

We are proudly,the only Billaong sponsored surf destination hotel in Costa Rica and have a fully equipped surfboard inventory and offer lessons from experienced instructors!

Each bungalow offers different bed arrangements, making them ideal for family , friends or couples. Please read about each bungalows bed arrangements under amenities section.

An all tile pool, outdoor shower and inviting outside rancho kitchen/ common area render Blue Surf Sanctuary a peaceful hideaway for a dream come true experience! Every Bungalow features lovely balconies that offer tree top views, ocean breezes and the exotic sounds of the jungle. We chose stylish and comfortable furnishings to make hanging out on the veranda an ultra relaxing experience.

All bungalows have a private bathrooms featuring hand carved stone sinks from quarries in the hills of Monte Verde, in addition to gorgeous all tile, spacious hot water showers with rain can shower heads and windows that invite in the stars and moonlight. Our bungalows were built with ventilation in mind, therefore each is equipped a ceiling fan and A/C for ultimate comfort. All the beds will have you resting deeply with lush pillow top mattresses. You will have peace of mind knowing your personal belongings are completely protected with state of the art digital laptop room safes that are large enough to fit cameras, laptops and other personal items. We also have a night guard on duty to ensure your safety and security.

In our inviting, cozy outdoor rancho kitchen and communal area, you are welcome to utilize our fully equipped kitchen. Perhaps you will choose a book from our book exchange library or enjoy the company of your family and friends. If you rent just one beautiful bungalow you can chill and meet an eclectic mix of interesting souls...our other guests. You might find yourself playing backgammon, cards or a relaxing game of chess. Bring your laptop if you would like to keep in touch with family and friends using our free internet.

Our gorgeous bungalows are only 150 yards from the sand and world famous surf breaks.

Santa Teresa, charming and rural, is quickly becoming a trendy hot spot with celebrities visiting and owning homes there. The magic one feels in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa is rare and almost indescribable. Health conscious, green and tropical with great surf, stunning beaches,breath taking sunsets and beautiful people! Local 'sodas' or restaurants offer delicious local cuisine for under $10.00 for a full meal!..Or dine at five star boutique hotel restaurants in the area for a more upscale's all there!!!

A note on the area's ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS

Santa Teresa and Mal Pais host some of the best and least crowded surfing in Costa Rica. The area offers many different breaks to serve the skill levels of all surfers. The experienced surfer will be stoked to find themselves in one of the most renown surf locations in the world yet many surf breaks here are long even beach breaks with sandy bottoms making our beaches a great and safe place to learn to surf.

ATVs / Quad Bikes
Quads are for sure the funnest mode of transportation to explore the back roads and to find the gorgeous beaches and great tucked away restaurants in Santa Teresa/Mal País.

Massage & Spa Services
We are happy to arrange a wide variety of spa services in the privacy of your bungalow.

Grab a snorkel and explore the deep tide pools in Mal Pais or use pacific divers-costarica to experience our beautiful waters.

Horse Tour
A wonderful way to take in this wonderful countryside is on horseback. The tour is probably the most natural way to experience the jungle and beaches of Santa Teresa/Mal País.

Local guides will take you to some of the best fishing spots the area has to offer.

The local zip line operator is Canopy Del Pacifico. They will pick you up from the hotel and bring you into the heart of Cabo Blanco National Park. You will then experience zip-lining through and above thick rainforest on lines extending as long as 500m. You will delight in the views of the Pacific Ocean as you shoot across 9 platforms.

There are over 894 species including 19 globally threatened species in Costa Rica.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hola~ I am a Nurse Practitioner (by profession) and avid traveler (by choice). We fell in love with Costa Rica when we visited and felt drawn to the area of Santa Teresa. The area is very laid back, as if you are taken back in time, and has a magical vibe you can only experience first hand. I have 2 grown children, 3 step daughters and 3 step-grand daughters. We hope when they are old enough we can bring them down for summers and when they go back to school they can brag to all their friends about seeing monkeys, iguanas and tropical birds. I love 'meeting' all our guests and helping coordinate their travel and excursions. Please don't hesitate to contact me regarding our little slice of paradise and I hope to 'meet' you soon! Pura Vida!

Why the Owner Chose Playa Santa Teresa:
Santa Teresa is one of the most amazing locations I have ever traveled to and I fell in love with the area and the people. The area takes you back in time, letting you live a 'simpler life'. People are genuinely friendly and helpful. The natural, untouched beauty of the area is like nothing else you will ever see.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
~Night security guard ~Short walk to beach, market and many restaurants. ~Receptionist/concierge services from 8am-7pm daily to help plan your many activities
