Playa Santa Teresa house description

This gorgeous, new, contemporary property was designed to be eco-friendly while also giving you all of the comforts of home. The large sliding doors and windows lining the walls of both stories make use of the ocean views and breezes and make you feel like you are nestled within the surrounding trees and flowering plants. This home was built with an attention to detail to western amenities. The entire house and cabina are situated facing the West/Ocean, giving you views from every room of the many local trees and foliage, with glimpses of the glassy ocean crashing in the distance. Both levels have large patios and covered balconies allowing you to take full advantage of the indoor/outdoor spaces. We have retractable screens on all doors and windows, and ceiling fans throughout the house (even in the large bathrooms) and over the patios outside to make your lounging times pleasant, even long after the sun goes down on those warm Costa Rican days.

This property is located 100 meters from Santa Teresa beach with only a grove of Pochote Trees standing between you and the white sand beaches, incredible surf, and tide pools. Heading out the other direction on the beach access road and bordering the rear of the property, you find yourself along the main road in town, full of superb restaurants, fresh fruit and fish markets, shopping and nightlife. Just a few yards down the road are numerous cafes and restaurants offering superb meals and service as well as a number of large grocery stores full of fresh local fruits and produce. Also a few steps away is the Spa Natural which offers a wide variety of spa services and morning and sunset ocean front yoga classes. We can guide you towards whatever you are looking for, and if you prefer, can arrange for any of these services to be brought to you.

This property works in a number of ways to accommodate your stay. There is the two bedroom, two bath house which sleeps up to 6 people comfortably. The house can be rented alone or along with the separate, free standing, pool-side Cabina on the property, which sleeps 2.

In the main house, the two oversized bedrooms are separated for privacy and each offer king sized beds with highest thread count bedding, as well as separate seating areas, treetop and partial ocean views. Both rooms are similarly large in size, face the ocean, and sliding glass doors lead out to the oversized covered balcony stretching the full length of the upstairs. Sit and enjoy your morning coffee, or in the evenings enjoy the ocean breezes while watching the rain fall and spectacular lightning shows. The second bedroom also boasts an additional daybed/seating area which can convert to a full size bed for additional guest. Both rooms have AC units as well as ceiling fans and screens on all windows and doors.

Downstairs, the open floor plan of the kitchen, sunken living room and large outdoor patio area blur the lines between an enjoyable outdoor and indoor living experience. There are ceiling fans throughout the entire living space as well as over the outdoor dining tables. Again, all doors and windows are screened for your after dusk comfort as well, and to take advantage of the naturally cooling ocean breezes. The kitchen is fully equipped with all new top of the line appliances, including a chef's stove/oven. If your interest is simply in blending the margaritas, we can arrange for you to have a local private chef come to prepare you a scrumptious feast for your enjoyment outside under the stars. The sunken living room boasts a built in, oversized couch with loads of comfortable pillows to lounge on and read your favorite book, listen to music, take a nap away from the sun, or sit and watch the surroundings.

The free standing Cabina offers comfortable accommodations on its own. Overlooking the pool area and with partial ocean views, you will find a comfortable king sized bed, AC unit, ceiling fans, private closet and safe, kitchenette, large full bathroom, and separate patio.

The beauty of this property stretches from the indoors-out. The pool is the gem of the outdoor area. Large enough to swim laps, dive, play, float or simply lounge in large, umbrella covered, shallow seating area, this pool offers a fantastic relief from the heat. It is surrounded by trees and tropical plants, as well as an outdoor seating area

We have a local property manager to make sure that you are greeted and well taken care of. We are also available to assist you with recommendations for restaurant reservations, baby sitting, surfboard rentals and/or lessons, canopy tours, airport transportation/transfers, horseback riding reservations, local flights, car rentals or tours, fishing excursions, massages/spa treatments, yoga, Pilates, or anything else you can think of!

In response to the water issues in the area, this property was built around an eco-conscious rainwater usage system. This means that all of the water used in the house is primarily stored rainwater or well water. After it is used, it is then recycled in a self contained system and used again in the irrigation of our property.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us via email.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: We are a vacation-loving couple from the beach area of Los Angeles, CA, whose dream was to find a place like Santa Teresa. When we have blocks of time off from work, you will find us in Santa Teresa, which, you will soon see, instantly begins to feel like your home away from home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Santa Teresa:
                      Once we found Santa Teresa, we fell in love and knew that this was where we would build our 'dream house'. It took us many years to design and redesign this house, and our dream finally came alive in 2009 with its completion. After exploring many properties in the area, we focused on designing a place that would have all of the amenities we always looked for in a rental, but couldn't seem to find all in one place. We focused on creating those little details and knew that this would not only be apparent and special to us, but to everyone who stayed there. Our love of the environment influenced the eco friendly design and amenities. We collect and store fresh rainwater, which we then use throughout the house in the showers, sinks, and toilets. We then have a three step system that treats this used water, refreshes it and gives it back to the landscaping. It was very important to us to create as sustainable of a house that we could in this gorgeous environment.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We are in a wonderful area of the town of Santa Teresa - More specifically, we are located in the small stretch of beach known as Playa Carmen, within the Santa Teresa/Mal Pais area. We have created surroundings that focus on comfort as the number one priority from the time you wake up in the morning until you sleep at night. We know how important it is to start your day with a glorious sleeping experience. Fantastic bedding that will make it a challenge for you to get out of bed and wander down our beach access road for 2 minutes to check the glassy surf and watch the fog lift from the beach. From there, after your surf, you can enjoy a day at the beach or lounging around the house and gorgeous swimming pool... Many days you may not even want to leave the property. The day is made complete by watching the sunset at the beach or through the trees from one of the many patios/balconies at the house, and then dinner at a neighboring restaurant or in the outside dining area of the house. There is no way to describe the beauty of your stay at our house!
