About the owner: We are World Citizen owners with British and Swedish citizenship. Background in finance and hotel management and of course surfing. Spent our early years in the UK and San Francisco and now Costa Rica. We also own Bungalows Supervista on the Beach in Santa Teresa as well as the luxury property La Casona. All beachfront and on VRBO.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Teresa Beach, Costa Rica:
Santa Teresa is Special! Not surprisingly our beach was recently voted 'The Most Beautiful in Central and South America'. Unspoilt, endlessly long and white, our beach has the feeling untouched nature that today's visitor seeks. We had traveled all over Hawaii, Mexico, The Caribbean and Asia seeking a little piece of paradise. We found it here!
