"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..."

"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."

"We stayed at Beachwood for 9 heavenly nights. The home and the property it sits upon are a living piece of art. It's so simple and casual, yet very elegant. Beyond the morning walks on the beach and the occasional dinner out, we found that we never wanted to leave the property. The staff are extremely accommodating and kept the home and grounds immaculate. Our concierge gave great suggestions for restaurants and brought in a fantastic masseuse. Our chef, Rob Essa, delighted us with several incredible lunches and dinners, mostly fresh fish caught the same day. We enjoyed the wildlife and were greeted by a troupe of howler monkeys that were mostly unimpressed by us. Sleep isn't the same since we've been home. The sound of the ocean, the comfortable bed and the sweet-smelling air are all that's missing."

"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."
