Beautiful newly eco built deluxe beachfront casitas in Santa Teresa. Your heavenly retreat on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

Playa Cielo is a private estate offering utter privacy amongst four acres of lush gardens, and provide guests with an oasis right in the heart of Santa Teresa. Comprised of three fully equipped luxury studio casitas and a new 2 bedroom/2bath luxury house designed to be used as one house or unit for family gatherings, vacationing with friends or private retreats. Or rent them individually.
You are walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets. Each house has its own vista directly onto the sea, which means watching the waves breaking from your king-size bed. Each studio casita offers a beautiful handcrafted king size canopy bed and comfortable custom sofa day bed to sleep up to four guests. There is air-conditioning, free WiFi throughout the grounds, wall mounted cable TV, kitchen, laptop safe and stunning bathroom with open roof shower. Watch the sun set gloriously over the Pacific. The only decision you need to make is whether to watch it on the veranda from your hammock or dining room table.

We are pleased to announce the second anniversary of our amazing beachfront Mexican/Seafood bar restaurant Habanero. Come join us for the freshest delicious fish and seafood specials with a refreshing margarita while watching the ocean.

As well enjoy receiving a massage in our newly built beachfront spa. Listen to the sound of the waves, providing the perfect background music.

Enjoy the beachside swimming pool as well as all year round world class surf steps away.

When designing and building Playa Cielo,we believed it was important to consider the imprint we leave and the effects we have on our environment and planet. We have worked with one of the worlds best suppliers of environmentally friendly materials and used only cultivated wood in building these casitas. This also includes using natural clay tiles for each roof.

All 4 casitas sleeps up to 13-17 guests or ask about renting them individually.

                                    Playa Cielo is a beautiful property in an incomparable location. The rooms were clean, cool, and airy. The grounds are lush and beautiful. We spent our days on the beach, afternoons by the pool, evenings watching the sunset, and slept to the sound of waves. Our children made friends, chased hermit crabs, played and swam. After only four days we left with hugs and promises to return to a place that felt like home.

                                    My wife and I came to stay at Playa Cielo for a week and had a wonderful time. The casitas were very classy with travertine floors and exposed beam ceilings. The roof-less shower was a very nice touch, and the large porch overhangs and hammocks gave us a great place to hangout when we needed a break from the sun or to nap while an afternoon rainstorm passed through. I was truly impressed that they went the extra mile to build the casitas with Eco-consciousness and sustainability in mind. There was also a security guard there at night which made us feel safe. Adele, Shlomi, Eti and their warm staff took excellent care of us and made us feel like family. The grounds were very well kept and we had a fresh plate of fruit waiting for us every day when we woke up. They arranged several excursions for us with curbside service. The food was delicious and made it easy for us to eat onsite for much of our trip. The Red Snapper was fantastic! They even had great live music one night. The Saltwater pool was also a nice touch since I don't like overly-chlorinated pools. The slightly-salty water was much nicer on my skin. The beach and the surfing were great as well. We can't wait to go back!

                                    I recently went to Playa Cielo with my husband for a vacation before our baby arrives. It was a perfect place to stay. Everything about the resort was beautiful and essentially perfect. The hosts are amazing, the food is delicious, it's set in an incredible spot with the most gorgeous views. The ocean is steps away, the pool is delightful, the accommodations are perfect, its quiet and relaxing, it's walking distance to stores and restaurants if you need to get away. There are plenty of activities near by but mostly it's just delightful to sit in the sun and read a book and eat fresh fruit that they serve you each morning. I'd recommend this place to absolutely anyone!

                                    My entire family had the oppurtunity to stay at Playa Ceilo during Christmas holiday and New Years for my brothers wedding. Once we arrived we were greeted with staff who always had smiles and where willing to help with anything we needed. The grounds were kept immaculate and the rooms were always clean. We were greeted each day with fresh fruit which was amazing. The walk to the beach was perfect every time. The owners Adele and Saul were very welcoming and their receptionist Edy was always there to answer or plan or schedule any activities we wanted. My entire family were able to catch up on well needed relaxation which is not hard to do in Costa Rica. The new restraunt They started on the grounds was amazing mexican food just withing a few steps of your houses. The entire community was pleasant and I always felt safe. The roads were a bit scary and dusty and bumpy so any excursions you might plan you will have a bumpy ride to get there but all were worth the drive. My husband and I went to Manzanillo to go horseback riding on the beach and a 5,000 acre farm which was amazing. We also went to Montezuma falls which was a small hike to a beautiful breathtaking waterfall. We also went to Tortuga island and went snorkling and swimming in clear waters. Everythign was amazing. I am a RN and it was very hard to leave such a beautiful place. We have three children and plan on taking our children back to this amazing place. Thanks Adele, Saul, and Ede it was a vacations of a lifetime. Cant wait to come back and see you. God Bless

                                    Our stay at Playa Cielo was pretty well perfect from top to bottom. The owners, Adele and Sol have put there hearts and souls into Playa Cielo and it shows in every conceivable way from the staff, the design of the villas, landscaping...etc. Pretty well every morning started out walking on the beach with our favorite dog Bambi, a small german shepherd owned by the grounds keeper Parfiddio. After our walk we would return to find our breakfast waiting for us on our patio, yummy:-) To our surprise Playa Cielo just opened a beach front restaurant, what more could you ask for. Location is very good as you are close to all the local shops including grocery stores which we hit very often to cook some of our own meals. ATV's is the way to go so explore explore explore but wear a bandana for the dusty roads. Thanks Plays Cielo

The owners, Adele and Sol have put there hearts and souls into Playa Cielo and it shows in every conceivable way from the staff, the design of the villas, landscaping...etc. Pretty well every morning started out walking on the beach with our favorite dog Bambi, a small german shepherd owned by the grounds keeper Parfiddio. After our walk we would return to find our breakfast waiting for us on our patio, yummy:-) To our surprise Playa Cielo just opened a beach front restaurant, what more could you ask for. Location is very good as you are close to all the local shops including grocery stores which we hit very often to cook some of our own meals. ATV's is the way to go so explore explore explore but wear a bandana for the dusty roads. Thanks Plays Cielo

                                  About the owner: The owners of Playa Cielo came to Santa Teresa for their honeymoon eight years ago from New York and never left! They have since had two daughters here, both of which attend the local school. The family have been an integral part of the community for the last eight years and own the first and most popular sushi restaurant, Umi Sushi in Santa Teresa.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Playa Santa Teresa:
                                  We love the surf, the beaches and the vibe. We thought that if we loved Santa Teresa this much then others would too.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                  Unbeatable Santa Teresa beachfront location. Playa Cielo is right in front of one of the worlds best and most consistent surf breaks in the world. We are walking distance to banks / ATM / restaurants / bars / shops.
