  • Location, Setting, and House: The Recipe for a Great Getaway

    "This was our third trip back to Santa Teresa; a fun town with great surfing and fishing. The house is on the northern edge of town. Quiet yet very convenient to the grocery store and restaurants. The grounds are well cared for. The path down to the beach is magical. (About a 90 second walk to the beach, but a magical 90 seconds!). The house has a great combination of private communal space for a family vacation. The housekeeper was helpful and delightful. Thanks for the great getaway."

  • Just great... Everything

    "What a phenomenal house, town, beach, I could go on and on. Our group was 7 good friends about 25-35 yrs old, and we were looking for a place to relax, surf, go on hikes and adventures, have group diners, etc. It was great being so close to the beach and surfing spots. Santa Teresa and other within walking dist from the house are great, and Hermosa, a 15 min drive north, was a great place for beginner surfing. The town was chill and laid back, exactly what I'd expect it to be. There were many restaurants, surf shops, gift stores, and a grocery/general store, but it was not "touristy" at all. Felt very safe and comfortable the whole time. Finally, Scott was great to work with, and the caretaker for the property, David, is the most kind, cool, and hospitable we could have asked for. He has all the local knowledge, great surfer, great jazz saxophone player, and will make your trip the most of whatever you want it to be. I would definitely come back to this exact spot again! Thanks David - Jared and the crew"

  • Paradise in Beach Haven

    "Maison Marazul is situated in paradise on a beautiful piece of coastline, walking distance to both Flor Blanca and Pranamar Villas. So without getting in your car you can enjoy the finest food (at Pranamar), yoga at both, and excellent beaches. Mario, the manager, made all the arrangements so easy--he has the patience of a saint, and delivers exceptional advice and service with competence, efficiency and professionalism. In addition to making all our housing arrangements at the house, he reserved accommodations and transport for our party of 6 in San Jose and up North. We love Mario! And Tania provided excellent concierge services, including arrangements for paddle-boarding and massages. Now back to the house--it could not be more beautiful and comfortable. Five days was not long enough to try out all the different outdoor seating areas. We watched the monkeys playing in the trees from the comfort of our lounge chairs--a National Geographic experience in the front yard! We enjoyed the beach sunsets, the sounds of the birds and cicadas, the iguanas , the hammocks, the pool and even the bats. The beds and house could not be more comfortable, serviced daily by a housekeeper and grounds person. For food we would highly recommend The Bakery in Santa Theresa (try the coffee and crumbled cheese cake), Mary's Restaurant in Mal Pais, Pranamar's restaurant. When we go back to Costa Rica, we will certainly arrange our trip with Mario."

  • Best apartment living in Santa Teresa!

    "For apartment living in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, there is no better place to stay than the centrally located Plaza Royal. The apartments are on the second floor, and there are retail shops on the ground floor. The apartments are clean, secure, air-conditioned, and well-maintained. The property manager and the owner of Plaza Royal are super conscientious, and they go out of their way to make sure that their clients have a wonderful time and get everything they need. Each apartment has a large kitchen, at least one large bedroom, and a huge front room and kitchen with large windows and a beautiful view of the plaza and the restaurants across the street. Wi-fi, cable television, and weekly cleaning service are all included. On the ground floor of Plaza Royal are all of the retail shops you could want for the beach life. Lost in Santa Teresa Surf Shop is owned and operated by an excellent surfer and highly experienced surf instructor. La Sandwicheria, a new deli-style café, is owned and operated by a lovely Argentine couple. Joy Spa boasts highly trained massage therapists, hair-stylists, and other spa-professionals. Lula is a delightful women’s beach clothing store that is very reasonably priced. Lastly, the Plaza Royal management office is also on the ground floor of the building, which makes asking questions and solving problems very easy. All of the employees and owners of these shops are cordial, relaxed, and professional. They all know each other and get along very well, which makes Plaza Royal like a community within a community. Perhaps best of all, Plaza Royal is a two-minute walk from the beach. You will love this place!"
