Property description


THE PALM GROVE with its Three Large Air conditioned Bedrooms, and entirely open Living Areas is constructed of Almond Wood, in Tropical Style with large Verandas. It is nestled on a three acre property with more that 20 Mango trees, Water Apples, Papaya, Coconuts and Bananas and so is a haven for wildlife. The Howler Monkeys visit almost daily with their brood to hang upside down in the trees surrounding the extra deep refreshing Swimming Pool, providing fascinating circus acts. Tom , the Papa of the clan of monkeys, likes to sit in the Mango Tree and look at his own reflection in the bedroom Windows!

Large Iguanas frequent the property as do red Squirrels, Parakeets, Colibris and a myriad of other Birds and Butterflies

Right in front, The Ocean offers one of the best Surf Beaches in the Santa Teresa/ Malpais area, a beach so long and unspoiled it was recently voted one of the best beaches in the World by Forbes Magazine .

The tropically furnished bedrooms offer a queen size bed in two of the rooms and two queen size beds in the third. Fluffy Pillows and beautiful Oriental Textiles complete the picture. We have a large safe for valuables, large enough for laptops. There are two bathrooms and surf board storage and a caretaker living on the property.

The Maid comes daily except Sunday and can do Laundry on request.

THE PALM GROVE is conveniently situated close to the Fruit and Vegetable Vendor and the Supermarket. Santa Teresa teems with small delicious restaurants from Argentinean to Thai, Fish, Italian, Sushi and of course Costa Rican. Many are within walking distance as is the Beach/Night Club with its huge Palapa.

Fresh Fish can be bought directly from the Fishermen in nearby Malpais, or ordered from Mariscos Macho, who arrives on demand with everything from Lobster to Tuna. There is also a new fishmonger in the Centro Comercial, where the Bank and The Pharmacy are located. Or Go Fishing! We can organize fishing trips with the Fishermen (About $45 per boat per tour with 6 people on board). We have a large purpose-built barbeque in the garden!

We live in Santa Teresa and are happy to share with you our inside knowledge of the best Surf Instructors, and Masseuses (Both come to you!) as well as any Adventurous Excursions you may wish to embark upon.
We can supply you with a Chef if desired. We also have a baby sitter on call and are happy to help you with excursions, car rental and transfers by air from San Jose.
