  • Best House Rental in Santa Teresa

    "Where to start...what an amazing house! First of all the location of this house couldn't be any better. Very centrally located, 200 meters to the main beach road of Santa Teresa, and such a short walk to the beautiful pristine beaches. The house itself is just beautiful and very well maintained. 2 bedrooms, one with an amazing king size bed, with a big L couch that easily sleeps 2 people if needed. The second bedroom can be made up with a queen or two single beds, making it very flexible for all different groups of travelers. 2.5 bathrooms, very spacious living and dining room space, with an amazing infinity pool. With the intensely hot sun during the middle of the day, seeking shelter in the house to relax and cool down was just perfect and breezy being perched up on the hill surrounded by the Costa Rican wildlife! The two house cats made our stay even more fun as well! The house owner Siggi was simply awesome. She was very organized, and made every effort possible to make sure we were all taken care of properly. It was her organization that assured us our valuables and possessions were completely safe in her house (which I might add has a full on gate to keep any unwanted people out) Having a 4x4 is definitely necessary to reach the house, as I can imagine in the wet season the road gets washed out alot. One of the best parts was having coffee grinds and milk in the fridge for our first morning wake up - the finishing touch by Siggi to her wonderful house and hospitality. This place is a must visit and is as beautiful as described and shown through the pictures."

  • Absolutely Wonderful

    "This property is fantastic. We had such a great time. The view is unbeatable and the pool is amazing. The unit is very clean, thanks to the excellent caretakers. We spent a lot of money on water, I would try to pay a little extra next time to have the water jug refilled regularly - after the first one is used you are responsible for refills and we couldn't get it up the hill on quads so ended up buying many smaller jugs. The Wi-Fi will last a couple days, longer if you don't use it too much. I really have no complaints. About the area - The ferry ride from Puntarenas to Paquera is very fun! Best part of the journey there. I would suggest taking a taxi after the ferry right to Santa Teresa. We rented quads to get up the hill because it is VERY steep. Luckily our first taxi was able to make it but after that you definitely need an atv. They are also great for getting around to see the sights - must have. We went fishing with Jose at Sport Fishing Tours in Mal Pais - I would definitely recommend, we caught 5 mahi mahi our first morning out. For an amazing meal I would suggest the restaurant at Hotel Buenos Aires, they will even cook up your Mahi Mahi that you caught. Absolutely fantastic. Would recommended this property and area to everyone!"

  • Afraid to tell you how great this spot is

    "Because you might book it up and make it impossible for me to rent next time! Jim is a great host, and the listing is exactly as he says. This is for adventurous folks who wish to truely go off the grid for a while. My wife and I enjoyed being removed from society for a week and wish we had more time there to unwind even further. I can't say enough about the views, the seclusion and the absolute peacefulness of Siepre Rio. A must on your bucket list!"

  • Magical and Serene Vacation!

    "Wow. Wow. Wow. What an amazing place!!! If you are looking for a serenity spot in Southern Costa Rica...this is paradise. Our family of 3 (mid 40-something's and our 10 year old daughter) had an amazing time @ Villa Baha. From the moment we approached the gate until the moment we left we felt so safe, comfortable and spoiled... we almost felt like owners... (or maybe that is wishful thinking). The house was perfect for a small family. We cooked in nightly and found the kitchen to be well equipped. We ate in the dining room... doors open, candles lit. We never used the upstairs tv room as we spent most of our time outside. Although our daughter was on her ipad often. The grounds are just beautiful. Each day brought newness to our adventure - new birds, animals, flowers, fruit. Such a variety of plants, flowers, trees... My day would start early at sunrise and I would open the house... Coffee in hand, you just sit outside and watch the world wake up. Perfect. Evenings were the same - sunsets spectacular. We stayed in the pool most days. Found the yellow chairs a perfect spot for evening cocktails and conversation. We left the property a few times (as the drive up and down the mountain was rougher than normal due to dry weather) and we needed to be committed to it.. We went zip lining @ Hacienda Baru and to the Osa Mountain Animal Sanctuary. We at @ the Beach in Dominical... but honestly - if you have groceries, you don't want or need to leave. Amy was a terrific hostess from afar. From the initial booking of the Villa, she provided us with tons of information regarding our trip and I asked A LOT of questions. She graciously assisted and went above and beyond. As someone who has rented 10+ homes a year for 5+ years on VRBO, I would rate this as our best experience to date. Pura Vida."
