Recent Playa Santa Teresa reviews
Just as superb, if not better, in the off-season
"This is the place where I step-off the grid of big-city life and a stressful job. Santa Teresa. The White House is the perfect retreat to take a group of friends or family. Ladies on a trip can get their daily yoga in right next door at Pranamar or "sip in the sunset" poolside. Gents on a trip, can surf at one of the world's best beaches, a quick walk away at Hermosa. Take a fishing boat out for the day in nearby Mal Pais. Come back to the house and cook it up - the dining table seats 8-10.
Not to mention, being an event planner by trade I have noted, the house is uniquely set-up perfectly to host a small to mid-size wedding or special event. The way the kitchen is designed, the entry, the view and the back lawn facing the ocean, suitable to bring in tables and seat away. Use the Master suite for the bride/groom + family and the two villas for the wedding party. If you need catering, there are many wonderful chefs in town. Ask Mario, the house manager for my specific recommendations. Then hire me as your event producer - as I will fly down from the states. I know all the locals and speak the language. ~your bon vivant."

"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 had such a wonderful time in Santa Teresa. As a town, its magical! Beautiful people, great food, amazing nature, awesome surf and epic yoga! it is so hard to leave! Villa Bonita was an amazing place to stay, as its right in the heart of town, but remote in the sense that when you're home you have total privacy. The pool is beautiful, has A/C, is a 1 minute walk to the beach, super clean and well stalked kitchen. There is housekeeping, laundry and if in case anything goes wrong, a maintenance person dedicated to making sure it gets fixed! There is also an outdoor shower that really came in handy! It's a perfect place for families or couples, of all ages! Mali and her family were incredible hosts! We can't wait to go back!"

"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!"
