What makes this House unique
Check-in: Flexible Children welcome Casa Kalafken is designed for family vacations. You will stay in our beautiful house in Playa Hermosa, a four minute walk from the waves. Playa Hermosa is located slightly north of Santa Teresa and there are very few surfers in water. Although the beach seems remote, it is still close enough to excellent restaurants and shops. This Private and secluded property is surrounded by palm trees at one of the more beautiful beaches in Costa Rica and with One of the best secrets of the area just a few steps of the property, only exposed at low tide, you will find a HUGE natural pool, larger than an olympic swimming pool, often overlooked by the surf-oriented travelers. Filled with all kinds of interesting creatures, including puffer fish and other sea life trapped here from the receding waves, it’s a really great place for families with kids where they can swim, learn to snorkel and also experience the sea-life close up.

Thank you for an amazing experience!
This property is even more beautiful in person. We had an amazing week. Everyone was helpful, the rooms were clean, and the pool and yard were absolutely breathtaking. I would highly recommend staying here. The kitchen was fully stocked with all utensils making eating at home easy. The local food was amazing too! We couldn’t have been more pleased with our choice. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We hope to return soon!

I highly recommend this house for your next vacation. I have stayed in Santa Teresa 10+ times and below is my unbiased unpaid thoughts:
1) Being on the beach is better than a beach view from the mountains. The ability to simply walk to the sand had us enjoying nature far more often than the wonderful houses we've stayed in on the mountain over the last decade;
2) The view of the ocean through palm trees with monkeys in them is hard to explain in words. Of our 8 guests nobody read a single page from their books. Intoxicatingly magical as we often just talked and watched the waves and sunsets;
3) The staff is incredibly nice and helpful and the guard keeps you secure. This helps when in an area unknown to many travelers. Always made to feel as though nothing was too hard for them to accommodate;
4) The area is super quiet. And in busy season (Feb for us) we saw a few people near us on the beach as far as you could see for our week. Once we heard a neighbor. Very private;
5) The rooms are nice. I won't bother describing everything because we spend our time sleeping in the room and 90% of our time outside.
6) The house requires a car to get to town, which is maybe a mile or so down the single road.
7) Plenty of restaurants, one on the beach just 2 doors down (yoga retreat). Quiet and nice to be able to walk for dinner.
In summary, those that joined us on this trip said it was the most beautiful place they have ever stayed. If you are thinking of coming to ST I highly recommend this for families/romance/nature.
MY FAMILY AND ME LOVED CASA KALAFKEN! THANK YOU
Hi everyone! My name is Belen, from Argentina. We stayed in Casa Kalafken 15 days with my entire family. We loved everything about it. Its just perfect for us. You know in Costa Rica is Hot! So, this house has amazing trees and a beautiful pool to hang out all the time. Its so Costa Rica's style. With its rooms private and cool baths, all rooms are different so it work out perfect for all our needs. My sister had a baby so she had a comfort room near the common area. My parents when for the tent experience, and loved it. People working at the house where super nice and helpful, They actually help up getting fresh fish and with everything we need. Just imagine that the only cons I can say about the house is that it need need speakers haha!
We loved casa kalafken. We are going back next year~!!!
Hi Belen, thank you for your wonderful review! For us was great to have your visit and we are so glad you enjoy the property and the life style of the house.
All the staff were really happy to attend you.
Looking forward to your next visit!
Best Regards & Pura vida
This property was just as beautiful as the pictures.
This house was perfect for our vacation. The staff was extremely helpful and great to work with. They kept the property immaculate every day we were there. There was a little road noise but that is how beachfront properties are in Santa Teresa. We have traveled to Costa Rica several times and this is our favorite location. It is such a fun little beach town with great beginner surfing. This house is in a perfect location. It is private and just a short walk from the greatest beach ever.
Thank you for your review and for your stay at Casa Kalafken, all our staff were glad to help, you are a awesome guest.
We hope to have your visit on the near future!

One of my most favorite houses we have ever vacationed at!!
Can't say enough good things about this house and our experience. Bettina was so nice to deal with when we booked the house & Maricel took great care of us all once we got to the house.
The house itself is just gorgeous! We really enjoyed the open air living room and kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped for anything you may need to cook while you are there.
The pool was our favorite part of the house for sure. We loved being right on the water. Spent alot of time in the tide pools right in front of the house.
Prana Mar is steps from the house if you want to go out for dinner or cocktails.
Maricel arranged groceries delivered right to the house.
She also arranged massages & a great horseback riding trip.
For animal lovers there was also a "house dog" on the premises who also watched over us...miss you Pepito!!!
We will be back for sure!!!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!!

Lo pasamos muy bien. Muy bueno para familia o parejas. Las personas que atienden muy amables. Muy comodo el acceso a otras playas y muy linda vista desde la casa. La pileta muy cómoda. La cocina amplia y comida para cocinar.
Muy recomendable, lastima q justo nos toco unos dias con obra al lado
Playa Hermosa is considered to be the most beautiful beach around. The area is officially called “San Martin”, but foreigners thought the beach was so beautiful that the area became known as Playa Hermosa (“beautiful beach” in Spanish).
This beach is very long and the flattest beach around. At low tide it’s really huge, and can be epically beautiful for photography, since the wet sand will reflect the setting sun. At high tide, the beach almost disappears, and the surf tends to close out. The best surf time is medium tide. The point break can be surfed at any time of day.
It’s an excellent surf beach, with a wide beach break with lefts and right from the center, and a point break to the north. Beyond this, it’s mostly rocky beaches until Playa Manzanillo, but there are a few beautiful sandy coves that you can often find deserted, and perfect for a romantic picnic.
If you’re looking for a beautiful beach without many people, this is the place for you. It’s a 8 minute drive to Santa Teresa town.
