Property description

Casa Morpho is an outstanding value for couples, families, and friends. This home is part of a 3-home, 2.5 acre gated complex. Our beachfront lot is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Santa Teresa’s exclusive North end. The best surf break in the area is located directly in front of the property. Santa Teresa is known for its consistent surf, pristine white sand beaches, and relaxed atmosphere.

We are located approximately one mile (1.3 km) north of the center of town. Casa Morpho is steps to the beach and has a serene walking path through a tropical Butterfly garden 'Mariposario' directly to the ocean without having to cross any main roads.

This comfortable 1300 square foot (110m2) two-bedroom, two-bathroom home with indoor and outdoor areas and a private non-chlorine pool (pure salt chlorinated) is surrounded by tropical hardwood trees and exotic local fauna. The kitchen is well equipped with a 20 cubic foot refrigerator, four burner gas stove and oven, bar style dining set for four, toaster, blender, coffee maker and more. The adjoining living room area offers hardwood and Balinese rattan furniture and color cable TV. The bedrooms are both the same size. One has a queen bed and the other one has two singles. There are also 2 Indo day beds in the Living Room which may be used separately or pushed together to make a full bed (sleeping a maximum of 6 guests). Both bedrooms have ample closet space, ceiling fans, A/C, large screened windows for cross ventilation and of course there is hot water in the bath. An outdoor back terrace provides an additional dining area for 6 complete with a built-in gas grill. The private pool has a Brazilian Cherry finished deck with chaise lounges and joints the dining and living areas via the pool area. There is an outdoor shower and separate lounge area with a sofa, Indo day-bed and hammock.

Theses outdoor terrace areas are very private spaces where you can experience the sounds of the sea and the abundant nature all around. This is a fantastic spot to share quality time with friends and family or to simply relax and enjoy the beautiful tropical surroundings.

Our lush & abundant gardens include a wide variety of mature tropical hardwoods, cocos, various palms, bananas, plantanes, papayas, lemons & guava trees, plumerias, & flowering tropical plants such as hibiscus, jasmine, heliconias, bromelias, tabacones & much more. Monkeys, iguanas, paroquets are just a few of the creatures you may see & hear right from your terrace.

Mariposa property is a 3-house gated complex with full time maid maintenance and staff and a wonderful multi-lingual & multi talented Concierge, Marta Marques. If you wish to accommodate more than one family, can can comfortably accommodate 27 guests on-site. Please contact us or visit our website for more information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My Dad was an executive w/Sheraton & Omni hotels, so I grew up in & @ the hospitality business. I first came to CR, in '96 to guide the Pacuare river with Rios Tropicals, while on summer break from grad school. I quickly fell in love with CR & came back every summer since. In 2000 I moved to CR for a year & began 'The Search'. In 2002 I was able to transition back to CR full time & purchased this magnificent beachfront parcel in '03 w/the sale of my Aspen property. I am an ex-Aspen, Colorado foreign language teacher, who is actively involved as a volunteer at the local public school. I have dedicated my full time efforts to developing and running a first class beach home rental operation, where people can come and relax, renew and enjoy one of the prettiest beaches in anywhere in the world...Santa Teresa, CR. Mariposa Vacation Homes, is the result of many years of dedicated work to achieve that goal.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Teresa Beach, Costa Rica:
I lived in Hawaii for 3 years & have traveled extensively both abroad & around Costa Rica, looking for the most beautiful beach in the world, where the surf is friendly & consistent. I decided to settle in Santa Teresa because it was one of the few places that actually surpassed my criteria. It's pristine white sand beaches, glowing sunsets, wonderful surf, nice people and magical tropical atmosphere must be experienced first-hand in to be truely appreciated !

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Mariposa Vacation homes reflects a passion for excellence and respect for nature. Our goal here is simple: to provide every guest everything they need to enjoy the best beach vacation ever ! Our homes are comfortable quality constructions, with modern conveniences, beautiful gardens, very private and steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, wit a small intimate staff to cater to your needs... What more could you ask for ? We welcome you to come and experience the beauty and magic of Santa Teresa, and Costarican 'PuraVida' hospitality.
