The nightlife is electric in Santa Teresa with bars and music and fine dining all within walking distance of the house, It is possible to arrange with local vendors one day tours to the main points of interest in the area like the fishing village of Manzanillo, Montezuma, Mal Pais, Cabo Blanco and beautiful Tortuga Island and the list goes on, and on.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: I was born in Costa Rica a few years back. At age 18 I left home and went to California, USA in persuit of a better education. During the Vietnam War I joined the USMC and serve with the 1st Marines in Vietnam. Upon my return to the USA from overseas I attended California State University in Los Angeles where I studied International Relations. During the 32 years I lived in the Golden State I worked at different things among them played and sang with a Mariachi Band in a night club in Los Angeles, Was Director of Data Processing for a large Insurance group in LA. Tour the end of my self-impose exile in the City of Angels I served as Comercial and Public Relations Attache for the Costa Rica Consulate General in Los Angeles, as a Consul of Costa Rica in Los Angeles, and last as Costa Rica Director of Tourism for Western United States and Canada, before retiring to go back and live in Costa Rica.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Teresa Beach, Costa Rica:
Being away from my native country for more than 30 years, I came to treasure from afar the natural wonders and the beauty of Costa Rica and its beaches. Santa Teresa was but a little fishing village lost in the wilderness of the Nicoya Peninsula. I arrived here New Year's Day 1982. No one knew back then not even me that the waves and the beaches of Santa Teresa were unique and the best in the country. I decided right there and then that I needed to get me a little piece of Paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Casa Santa Teresa is unique in its looks and its size. It accommodates confortably up to 12 persons. I tried making Casa Santa Teresa spacious and confortable. Its different seating and relaxation areas and broad corridors gives everybody space to be their own. It was built in 2007 with the large family or friends groups in mind. I am very please with the outcome. Its location is also a plus. It is at the end of all the noise of the town, the best part of Santa teresa in my opinion. Another very important advantage: A new super market was built righ across the street from the entrance gates, making it very convenient to walk ang get water and daily food supplies. Being a new home I am all ears to hear from you, your ideas and feed back from your experience in my house. You see I have strong competition with neighboring home owners to be the best staying place in Playa Santa teresa. I think Casa Santa Teresa has a very good chance to be just that.
