  • Extremely happy customer

    "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..."

  • Unbelievable Paradise

    "My husband and I, along with our children and grandchildren, stayed at Milla la Maria for a week in Feb., 2015. What a wonderful experience. The owner was there to meet us and give us a tour and information on services and restaurants. Prior to our visit he was very helpful in securing quad rentals and transportation services. He also called several times during our stay to check on us. There are literally no words to describe the beauty of this home and grounds. The home itself is an architectural treasure as are the aesthetics of the home. Yet it was very comfortable and homey with Internet that always worked! The pool area and surrounding grounds all the way to the Ocean were spectacular. The beautiful plantings, sculptures and pool arrangement were so lovely. The walk to the ocean was a delight with again beautiful foliage accompanying you. The walk was very short and voila you arrived at Playa Santa Teresa with miles of beaches that are sparsely populated. The water and surfing were great but most lovely were the sunsets. Words can not do justice! The property is very well kept and Melani, the housekeeper, a dream. She even washed our clothes and any dishes everyday! My favorite time was when it was quiet in the morning and you could hear the birds and see the animals including monkeys. We all loved the estate cats and Perone the best and cutest little dog! On these cold mornings back home, I often have visions of our stay and they warm my heart. Perfect for all ages from the most active to those like me who love to lounge and read. I almost forgot to mention that this property is totally secluded with no sight lines to other properties. Yet it is close enough to restaurants, etc. to be very convenient. Much to do or nothing to do is such a great option. Our kids and grandkids loved quadding and exploring along with the pool and beach. There is zip lining, horseback riding, yoga, etc. available or again nothing but relaxing. Some very good restaurants in Santa Teresa but again never crowded. The town has good stores for groceries and a variety of small shops. My husband and I travel frequently.and many times have rented homes. This is truly the BEST yet. Milla de Maria is an oasis of beauty. Anyone would be very fortunate to experience it!!"

  • Peaceful paradise

    "My husband and I stayed in Casita Kala (next to Casa Kala) for just over a week. We were pleasantly surprised that the casita lived up to the pictures we saw on-line. Inside, the bed was super comfortable, and it was nice to have the kitchen to prepare our own meals. The bathroom is outdoors so we had to get used to visits from local land crabs (part of the experience:). It rained quite a bit while we were there (start of the rainy season) but there is a beautiful covered outdoor patio with a table and hammock so that was a real bonus. The grounds of Batik Costa Rica are very well kept and secure. There is a security guard at the front over night and cars are parked inside the gate. We felt very safe here. The walk to the beach is quite short, and playa hermosa is a quieter and cleaner version of Playa Carmen (previously Playa Santa Teresa)...it is a sandy beach (no stones) and lots of waves. The rip tide can be quite strong so those with young children would want to be extra cautious. We rented an SUV this trip which is a must have if you stay here and want to be able to do day trips and your own grocery shopping. Super Ronny 2 is where we did most of our shopping. Recommended restaurants Habanero for solid Mexican food, El Pulpo for take out pizza, and if you are willing to drive to Montezuma, Playa des los Artistas was great with the view of the ocean. The manager Dahlia was great and super accommodating to us during our stay. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job cleaning our room everyday and making it smell nice. We would absolutely go back, it is a great place to spend time if you really just want to relax and get away from it all."
