About Cristina Sartori Medri
We are an Italian family that currently live in the US. We love to travel and discover different cultures, vacations with friends, surf, ski, yoga and nature in general. We design and build eco sustainable luxury homes in the US, and decided to build our own eco retreat in Costa Rica to have a special place to share with our friends.
Cristina Sartori Medri purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Cristina Sartori Medri chose Hermosa Cóbano Beach
We travel the world, and when we came across Playa Hermosa we knew we found a real gem! We designed and built this houses with the help of the best locale builders, using the most sustainable materials and woods, keeping the environment and sustainability in mind.

Amazing retreat villa!
Absolutely loved this place. Will be back!
Great spot for beach and surfing
We loved this open air Home near the beach. Christina was very responsive during booking and Antonio was helpful and unobtrusive on-site. The house was spotless and fit well into the natural environment . Santa Teresa is a buzzing surf village and we had our best dinner at Cantina, about a mile away. TP8 is an easy stroll and has terrific wood fired pizza.
One note about Beach access. There is a nice gravel path through the property but you still have a bit of a walk down a communal trail that cuts through the jungle to the beach. It gets muddy and flooded when it rains.
Overall our family had a wonderful time. Thanks Cristina and Antonio!
Amazing relaxing getaway
My extended family and I couldn’t be happier with our stay at Casa Macondo. The 10 of us stayed together in the main house and the casita, and enjoyed every moment of it. The house is comfortable, very clean, and Gives a sense of luxury to its guests. Walking through the jungle to the beach was amazing. We were so pleased with how kid- friendly the playa hermosa was. Such a short distance away. My 70 year old dad and 5 and 7 year old kids learned to surf while we were there on the perfect waves. Antonio was very attentive to our needs. The staff go above and beyond the call of duty, and were very helpful to my mom who requires assistance walking on eneven ground at night. They were always at the ready with a flashlight, an umbrella and a helping hand. I would recommend the Casa Macondo to anyone staying near Santa Teresa. In fact it was so hard to leave, we sincerely want to go back for another family reunion.
Don't miss staying here
The photos can't capture the beauty of this home - it was perfect for our family of seven. Cristina and the staff were fantastic in every way, and we highly recommend Casa Macondo, Santa Teresa and Playa Hermosa. Antonio the manager was super friendly and available, and we couldn't be more pleased with him. The beach is just a short walk, and we went back and forth between the pool and the beach all day. The open style of the home was great, and its easy to shut the door and cool down the bedrooms at night. Thank you Cristina, Antonio, and staff.
Hello Don! We loved having you and your beautiful family, it has been a pleasure meeting you and be your host! Thank you for coming and for the beautiful comments. We will miss you and remember you, looking forward to see you in the future. Hugs to all, Cristina
Best place to stay, design, comfort, beach and jungle
This is an amazing place I would highly recommended it. Hard to find such a jewel!
Warm, welcoming and peaceful. Would return.
This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we picked the right place to stay. The property was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed how the home was open but could be closed if necessary. Our host and property manager, Isabella is a friendly and warm person. She stayed late to welcome us on our check in and despite the late hour took the time to ensure we were familiar with the property.
The home itself is beautiful with an open plan, rich wood throughout, and a well equipped kitchen. The open bathrooms were fantastic and the kids loved them. Being able to close rooms off and use the air conditioner (if needed/wanted) was nice.
Isabella stopped by every day to see how we were doing and to make reservations for activities for us from zip-lining to ATV rentals. She even brought a bunch of bananas fresh from trees on the property.
The staff came in daily to clean the home and pool and we barely noticed they were there. Friendly and efficient is the best way to describe them. The security guards at night were there to ensure "all is well" and if we hadn't seen and talked to them, we would not have known they were there.
One thing we did learn during our visit to Costa Rica, everything is "just 15 minutes away", at least for the locals.
We highly recommend Casa Macondo for anyone considering a visit to a more remote area of Costa Rica.
