Perfect Secluded Fantasy House
"This house is absolutely gorgeous - crisp, clean, beautifully decorated, with a private plunge pool secluded in the back. Gorgeous jungle scenery and wonderful view of the ocean and mountains. Monkeys in the morning, birds throughout the day, absolutely wonderful. We spent 4 nights here as part of our honeymoon and wish we could have stayed longer. Can't wait to come back!"

"AMAZING!!! We just had the BEST time with 2 other couples celebrating my husbands 40th birthday! This home is perfect! Perfect! Perfect! Best location right on an amazing stretch of sandy beach, with warm waters and the ultimate surfing conditions! We utilized the super convenient market across the street for our grocery needs, and rented 4-wheelers to explore the surrounding areas! We had a little rain each evening which was much appreciated and refreshing. The Sun was out every day, the people are all so kind and helpful, and we felt safe and secure the entire time. Roberto is absolutely phenomenal in assisting us with everything from horse-back rides, ATV rentals, dinner reservations, and airport transport. Everyone in town knows Roberto! So special treatment is offered to all of his house guests :)
Milania, the house keeper kept every inch of the property super tidy, did our laundry every day and was always available if we needed her. We are already planning our next trip out with our kids! You will not be disappointed with this home wether you are planning a romantic get-away, family retreat or a fun trip with friends!"

"This is not your typical VRBO, in the sense that it comes with property managers who are very attentive to your needs at the house, and also are more than willing to act as your visitor's bureau, assisting you with any questions, reservations or recommendations on all things to do in the area. The house also has an onsite maintenance man and maid service. Everyone involved with this property is ultra-friendly and are very invested in the quality of your stay.
This house is all-encompasing to the Santa Teresa experience because some of the best stretch of beach is a 3 minute walk from the front door. It is close and easily accessible to shops and restaurants, so driving is not always necessary. There is no need to go to the wildlife preserve, because they come to you, howler monkeys, parakeets, iguanas (my daughter named them), assorted birds, crabs, etc. It should be noted this house is right next to the main drag, and most of the locals get around on motorcycles and ATVs. Despite it's location to the road, it still feels exclusive when you are onsite, although, you do get the noise from the road. However, that is ubiquitous to the Santa Teresa experience. The open floorpan to this house makes it great place to chill. One afternoon we decided not to go back to the beach, and the house was perfect for just hanging-out by the pool, and laying in the hammocks. The house is also very safe and secure. We slept every night with the doors wide open, and just listened to sounds of the rainforest. If you are planning a trip to Santa Teresa, I highly recommend this house."

"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..."
