Playa Santa Teresa house description

Location: Playa Santa Teresa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, Central America (1 km north from the town’s catholic church and soccer field.) View Map
Accommodations: House, 4 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms (Sleeps 8)
Milla La Maria is a 12,000 square meters property located in a wonderful and quiet residential neighborhood 1 km north of the town centre and a few hundred meters South of the well-known Resorts of Flor Blanca, Milarepa, Red Palms to mention some.

Those who stay at Milla La Marìa enjoy complete privacy. The property is gated with a long driveway that extends from the Front Gate to a large circular private parking area located just off the entry to La Casona. The home is surrounded by magnificent gardens and it is the only rental home on the estate grounds.

The property stretches from the main public road to the beach. Milla La Marìa is a truly exotic retreat surrounded by beautiful Costa Rican flora, with legendary trees of pochote, malinche coral, almendro, Ilán Ilán,and higuerón as well as many tropical fruit trees particularly banana, platano, coco, mamón, cas, carambola , mango, fruta de pan , guayaba, Aguacate, limón and naranja ácida. Most attractive for visitors is the large collection of Heliconias grown on the property grounds and the impresive
number of different kinds of tropical flowers.

La Casona:

Upon entering La Casona, one faces a open leisure living Estancia area [by far, the favorite area of the house!] This area acts as a leisure/ living area. It uniquely creates the ambiance with ceramic tile throughout. It is fully furnished with separate seating areas, hammocks, traditional Costa Rican wood-carved rocking chairs, cocktail table, sofas, and a detached guest bathroom.

This area is adjacent to the pool. This unique indoor open terrace has a distinctive Costa Rican décor, yet features many cultural artifacts acquired by the owner as well as a notorious and large collection of wooden sculptures that the owner has patiently carved throughout the years.

Adjoining the leisure area is the kitchen and dining area. This area is the “heart” of the beach house, with a staircase leading to the sleeping quarters (master bedroom and both right and left wings suites and to the third floor loft). The dining room table seats 10. And the kitchen comes fully equipped with a full-size refrigerator, an oven with stove, sink, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker, plates & utensils, and a pantry.

As one reaches the second floor one faces an open leisure area overlook by a 3rd floor loft.
The 3rd floor open loft provides 2 twin beds complete with a ceiling fan. The stairs accessing this floor are somewhat steep; and we recommend that these sleeping quarters not be reserved for the elderly or small children.

Master bedroom
The master bedroom consists of an extraordinarily spacious bedroom with a king size bed, and a twin bed, Air Conditioning and 2 ceiling fans, a private bathroom, fully furnished with cable TV and internet access.


The Left-Wing of la Casona.

The Left -Wing quarters have one suite. This bedroom includes Air Conditioning, private bathroom. This second floor suite has one queen bed. It is completely secluded and private; an experience of solitude and peace. This suite boasts a private balcony overlooking the property’s lush garden. It also enjoys the choice of having a private entrance as well as entrance from the main house.

The Right- Wing of La Casona:

The Right -Wing quarters have two suites. The upstairs suite offers a spacious bedroom furnished with one king, one queen and one twin size bed. This bedroom include Air Conditioning, private bathroom, full kitchenette (including plates and utensils), dining area for four, refrigerator, sink, coffeemaker, toaster, and microwave. The balcony is a perfect backdrop for enjoying meals and conversation with the lush and serene landscape inherent to the tropics of Costa Rica. It also enjoys the choice of having a private entrance as well as entrance from the main house.

The downstairs suite is completely furnished and has one queen size bed, AC and a private bathroom

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1981

                  About the owner: This amazing property was named, Milla la Maria, after the owner and retired International Relations professor, Roberto E. de la Ossa T’ s late mother. Professor de la Ossa fell in love with the location back in the mid seventies. He purchased the property in the early 80’s and over the course of twenty five years has not only established a magnificent vacation home for himself and his family, but has recently opened up the possibility for travelling families, groups, and individuals to rent and enjoy “La Casona” (as this unique land mark is fondly referred to by locals and outsiders who have had the opportunity to spend some time at Milla La Marìa).
