"What struck us most was the extent to which every detail was attended to and every effort made to make us feel completely at home!
Greg and his staff (and yes, including the ever adorable Luna) have thought of everything. Their hospitality, assistance and guidance, the conveniences that one would expect and the little details such as an intimate place to BBQ, a comfy hammock to relax in and even reading materials to share in a little makeshift library were all very much appreciated; this place really has it all!
We feel fortunate to have found this place and to have met Greg. During our stay in Santa Teresa, having this place to return to every evening truly felt like we were returning to our home away from home.
Pura Vida Greg!"

"We have visited Batik 4 times. Our most recent trip was to Casa Mali. Gorgeous accomadtions, your own private pool, short walk through the mango trees to the beach, what could be more perfect!
Casa Mali offers enough service to make your stay enjoyable and worry free but also the privacy to make you feel as though you are in your own home.
We can't wait to go again!"

"I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone. My boyfriend and I spent one week here in February, we felt quite lucky to have such a large place to ourselves as it does sleep 8 very comfortably. Each room is its own contained unit making it great for 3-4 couples travelling together.
We chose to fly with Air Sansa from San Jose to Tambor where we met our taxi to Santa Teresa. This leg of trip in its self is an adventure. Our ATV's for the week were dropped off at the house upon our arrival and were picked up the day we left - our taxis, activities, dinner reservations & ATV's were all set up by the house manager who did a great job communicating with us and ensuring we were using the best companies. The sunsets and view alone from the pool were worth every penny. The road to the house is quite steep as mentioned and we were happy to have ATV's rather than a rental car.
- Tortuga island with Zumatours, we saw pilot whales, dolphins, blowfish and Macaws.
- The spa at Florblanca as well as the restaurant - we had lunch and dinner on the beach there *you can use there pool and beautiful beach area with bar service.
- ATV from house to Montezuma, don't miss the big Strangler Fir, monkeys or splashing through the rivers.
- Kojis has a nice dinner atmosphere and their sushi isn't too bad either, make a reservation.
***Lots of places are cash only and except US and Colones.
The rooms are simple and exactly what you need. Comfortable, clean queen beds. The caretakers are excellent and skim the pool each day as well as general tidy the house and garbages. Our laundry was even hanging out to dry when we got home most days. The kitchen, dining and living area is a great space too. Honey and Camilla are two canine frequent visitors, we loved having them stop by along with some horses, a bull frog, humming birds - lots of birds and lizards.
I'm sure anyone would love their time at this property. It's private yet close to everything you need."

"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!!"
