We had a very enjoyable stay at villa almendro

  • 5 of 5

Greg the owner, took a deep and sincere interest in ensuring our stay at his villa was great! Right from the beginning Greg shared his cell number and encouraged us to let him know of our needs and questions. He is an excellent communicator and responds to every query promptly, honestly and clearly by phone, WhatsApp email or text.

The villa met our expectations. The best part was having breakfast on the lovely deck looking at the forest while listening to the howler monkeys and tropical birds.

During the dry season the main road in Santa teresa is dirty and dusty! The back veranda faces the hills -not the road, and was perfect. The ac works well and together with the ceiling fans we were kept perfectly cool. Greg ensured that the cleaning staff came twice during our week and cleaned properly.

Water in Santa Teresa is not potable but Greg set us up with a large bottle of water (10 Gallons for a small charge.)

The beaches in Santa Teresa are among the most beautiful in the world. At our request, Greg found a beach chair for us. Greg was correct in saying that many of the hotels will let you use their pool, hammocks and chairs if you buy a drink or meal at their restaurant. We found that to be the case at the lovely Tropico Latino located a 1/2 mile down the beach.

Groups of dogs roam around Santa teresa but over all the town is safe. Greg takes safety seriously by securing the property and guest vehicles with a high fence and gate. A friendly caretaker resides on the property and is available to take care of anything should it arise.

Greg was extremely conscientious and hospitable and really made our stay at the villa wonderful.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over samana santa with two adults; two kids and a dog! We had a great time. The condo was a great size and super close to everything. We walked everywhere - beach, shops, burger places! Greg was super helpful and had lots of dinner suggestions!

Clean, Cozy, Close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Villa Almendro (part of Villas Solar) is a great place. Greg and his staff are super nice and helpful. The apartment is super cute, very clean and secure. Also a plus it is very close to the beach! We ate out as we were only here for 2 nights but there is a fully equipped kitchen for meals and a well priced market close by.

We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Playa Santa Teresa!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Two couples traveling together and we can't say enough about this wonderful Villa. When we arrived and Greg was there to meet us. After a quick tour we were on our way to the beach to catch our first sunset. Greg and staff were very helpful with all kinds of ideas for our stay! The apartment was very clean and walking distance to stores, restaurants and the beach was right across the street! The area was very safe and secure! We will return again for sure!

Our new home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

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!
