Cool Place / Great Value
Cool Place / Great Value
We had a great stay here. The owner is responsive and very forthcoming about his place. He checked in by phone the day after we arrived to make sure all was in order. His concierge team -- Trent and Soraya -- were also excellent. We took surfing lessons with Trent and he was a superb teacher, especially with our 12 year old who had never surfed before. Soraya helped with a couple of reservations and travel arrangements during the week, as well as organized an extra mattress when our son and his friend came at the end of the week. Memo, the caretaker, lives on the property and is also very helpful. The pool on the property is shared. During our stay, it was cleaned, which was considerate. We used it as a way-station between the beach and the condo. The owner has a welcome packet that is absolutely spot on with recommendations and advice. It was a memorable week at Maramar and we recommend it highly.

All in All We Loved It
All in All We Loved It
We (four adults) stayed at Mar A Mar in late February, early March, 2013. The owner and the local hosts Soraya and Trent were all extremely helpful with any questions or assistance needed. (They even arranged RT taxi service at the airport in Tambor, made dinner reservations for us and arranged local taxi service!) The apartment is very, very nice. The description mentions that it is located on a hill but it does not mention that it is a very steep hill and possibly a difficult climb for some. The master suite is incredible, but it is unattached and an additional 49 steps up from the 2nd floor (also not mentioned). I would not recommend this property to the elderly or anyone with health issues (unless you have a good car that can make it up the hill (some local taxis could not) or if you rent an ATV approx $45 per day) for that reason only. On the "flip side" the property is far (and high) off the unpaved main road so there is little or no dust. The 2nd floor bedroom has the largest deck and is equipped with two lounge chairs. The (unattached and 49 step up) master suite is amazing! You can view the surf from your bed. Night star gazing from here is incredible. The beds are very comfortable. Consistent, great surf at the beach (either path) right out the gate. FYI the path to the beach to the right when facing the ocean (toward Cuesta Arribia, across from a surf school) is far cleaner and less traveled than the one to the left that is next to a local bar. The beach has trees for shade and also has little or no rocks so it is great for swimming. If you go south or north you'll find big rocks. On the property howler monkeys hang out in the trees up the hill about 1/8 mile in the early morning and then in the trees by the pool in the mid afternoon. We also saw large lizards, squirrels and lots of colorful birds. The view from the hike up the hill behind the apartment is great, wear sturdy shoes, go early and bring water. There are 2 grocery stores within walking distance (the one to the right when facing the ocean is closer) and many tasty restaurants. Most local people speak good English, and take US dollars, but don't plan to use your credit card, those that do accept cc's charge 16%, most restaurants do not accept cc's. All in all we LOVED it!

My wife and I vacationed here for our honeymoon. We found the lodging to be perfect. Wonderful views of the ocean and sunsets. We found the care takers of the property to be more than helpful with any needs that we had. It was the perfect distance from the heart of the town thus the road was not as busy but you were still only a 5 minute walk away from shops, good food, groceries, and less than 5 mins from the beach access which was just outside the gated entrance. The pool was wonderfuly redone, comfortable and relaxing with ample area of sun and shade to lounge in, not to mention the amazing views a short hike even higher into the hills. We strongly reccomend you watch a sunset from one of the great spots if you adventure up the hill from the condo. We did alot of looking at rentals online prior to booking and chose to stay at Mar-A-Mar which turned out to be in our opinion the best location in the town. The owner was very easy to work with and answered all our questions without hesitation and very accurately. We have no doubt that we will return to the very same location if we could do it all over again. Matt and Leslie ~Pura Vida~

Owner response: Matt and Leslie - thanks very much for your review and feedback - we are really happy you had such a great time and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Our family of 5 enjoyed a wonderful stay at this location in Santa Teresa. Mere minutes from the beach and the main area of the town, the location was excellent! We had such an amazing time - the house was perfect - we enjoyed all the wildlife - the howler monkeys came by most days (on one day we counted 24), lots of lizards and birds. The house is spacious, comfortable, unique, well equipped, and in such a great location! We lacked for nothing! The pool was also a refreshing respite! Santa Teresa will be in our hearts and minds until we can come back again - which we will! We had an amazing adventure here, and cannot thank Will and Karyssia enough for sharing their wonderful home with us! We would highly recommend this location and renter!

I just returned from spending 4 days in Mal Pais, and this has to be the nicest place in the whole town! Super clean, bright & spacious, this apartment was everything that we needed. The owner was very accommodating and easy to get in touch with. I would recommend this apartment to anyone and will definitely return.

About the owner: My wife and i live in San Jose Costa Rica
Why the Owner Chose Playa Santa Teresa:
My wife and I bought the house for our sole use, but have decided to offer it for rent having just had Twin Boys in March 2011! Consequently all of the furnishings and things in the house have been bought with passion and for us - so the quality of everything is exceptionally high, and not you normal rental. We live in San Jose Costa Rica and use the house occasionally at weekends and for our holidays. We love the area, endless white sand beaches with the best surf in Costa Rica, the area is totally unspoilt, nature surrounds you, and there are so many lovely restaurants, but no big hotels - its gem - perhaps like Hawaii 60 years ago.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Unparalleled Ocean Views from every room, the Master Suite is a penthouse Cassita which has 4.5 meter windows from which you can watch the surf, feels like you are up in the trees. Guests can enjoy our Huge Pool which is 15m x 5m.Our high end, air conditioned house is one of the best built and most modern constructions in the area, yet surrounded by nature, Howler monkeys and Squirrels visit the trees opposite the house everyday, and the private 65 acre reserve allows guests to walk and experience the unspoilt Costa Rican nature first hand. The air is cool as its up on the hill but just a 5 min walk to the beach and surf. We love our certain spots on the beach where you may not see anyone all day. In high season the snorkeling is amazing, the surf is better, you will have the most incredible holiday and want to return time and time again. Our house is very modern and practical but luxurious too, you feel secure, at home, relaxed, and surrounded by nature. Our Beds are probably the most comfortable on the beach - each mattress cost $1k! We are minutes from restaurants and bars - its a no hassle luxury destination.
