Heaven on Earth
"This is our second stay at Milla de Maria and we love it there. This is not a home, its a haven, a slice of heaven. The owner Roberto could not be more gracious or kind. He wanted to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and all our needs were met. His caretaker who cleaned and watched over the property made us feel so secure. The lovely home which sits on two oceanfront acres is spacious and comfortable. There are many rooms and baths and it could easily house a large group. But it really is about outdoor living and everything from the pool, the lush landscaping and incredible beach can fill your day with amazement and wonder at being surrounded by tropical life and nature. There is so much to do in the town from ocean activities ( great surfing!) to hiking and exploring the inland areas. There are great restaurants in town and you can dine on the beach at many locales. We recommend a stay at Robertos for anyone who is looking for a beautiful and affordable retreat. Thank you again for Roberto for sharing your heaven on earth with us! Sincerely, the Rapf family"

Great place for a relaxing retreat. Stunningly beautiful!
"Casa Yin Yang was our home for a week. Everything about this home is perfect. Rather than the very nice home next door which was designed like any nice home in our home town of Orange County, CA, Casa YIn Yang is uniquely Costa Rican in it's style. Open areas everywhere. Elegant indoor/ outdoor master bath, yoga platform near the sea (perfect for massage), extensive use of exotic wood throughout. My twenty something kids had a great time surfing on the beach in front of the house. We loved this home!"

"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!"

"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."
