Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews
"My friend and I had a great stay in the Plaza Royal apartment. The place was clean and perfect for your stay of a couple of days or long term. The apartment is located above a cafe (we went each morning!), surf shop, massage/spa, and is located about a minute walk from the beach! There are multiple bars and restaurants, and a market nearby for all your food and sundry needs. We woke up to howler monkey's one morning! Being that Santa Teresa is a smaller town the main mode of transport is ATV or motorcycle, so being right on the main road it did get a little loud in the mornings with people heading to work/surf, but that was easy for us to look past with the level of service the owner provided and the amenities in close proximity. I would definitely stay here again on any return trip to the area. Nice, modern, convenient... and the owner/her son were excellent hosts!"

"What struck us most was the extent to which every detail was attended to and every effort made to make us feel completely at home!
Greg and his staff (and yes, including the ever adorable Luna) have thought of everything. Their hospitality, assistance and guidance, the conveniences that one would expect and the little details such as an intimate place to BBQ, a comfy hammock to relax in and even reading materials to share in a little makeshift library were all very much appreciated; this place really has it all!
We feel fortunate to have found this place and to have met Greg. During our stay in Santa Teresa, having this place to return to every evening truly felt like we were returning to our home away from home.
Pura Vida Greg!"

"This was our third time back to mariposa vacation homes.. We have stayed at every one of the properties for some period of time.. Each one is incredible in their own way.. This year, they added beach cruiser bikes and 2 surfboards per property which was an incredible addition.. The bikes were perfect for cruising around town and on the beach.. And the boards were perfect for helping some beginning surfers tackle the incredible surf out front.. The concierge and staff could not be more helpful and friendly.. Any questions or concerns were only a phone call away even though there were few.. We have been vacationing in Santa teresa for several weeks at a time for the past 13 years... I couldn't imagine staying at any other property. The staff have become my extended Costa Rican family and I look forward to seeing the incredible staff just as much as I do the beautiful views Costa Rica has to offer... I can't express how absolutely amazing this property is..."

"Seven of my family members descended upon Casa Java. My son is a surfer and has lived in Santa Teresa. The rest of us have been there numerous times. This was our best experience by a long shot. We are beach people. Having the ability to walk fifty yards to one of the best beaches we feel in the world is a real plus. Great surfing, walking, fishing, horseback riding on the beach. The house was perfect for our needs. The downstairs living area was an open concept which was very comfortable and accommodating. We grilled in as many nights as we ate out. Lots of room and little nooks for privacy. The bedrooms and baths were excellent and all were happy. There is security from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM. The staff was friendly, polite and very efficient. Lots of privacy and the kids loved the pool after a day at the beach or at night. We would highly recommend Casa Java and I know we will be back."
