Car: Recommended

Location: To get to the Villa you turn uphill at Amichi Pizza next to Ronnie's Market. This is the Horizon Yoga road and is Black tar at the bottom.

Road up to Villa:

The road up the the Villa is less than 1K but very steep at the bottom section and very rocky and bumpy towards the top. It requires 4x4 and i generally use low gear and drive upslowly. Any 4x4 can make it up and once your here you will be very glad you did.


Surfing, Standup Paddle-boarding, Body Surfing, Hand Boarding, Boogie-boarding, swimming, sea fishing are all World Class. The Surf is extremely consistent and there is a great opportunity to learn to surf while you here. Many professional surf instructors and all the rental gear along with slow smooth waves that allow even beginners and novice find a break that works for them. Many Many beach breaks and a few point breaks makes it easy to find your own peak and enjoy empty waves with humpback whales and an occasional dolphin.

If surfing isn't for you then the triple water fall or a canopy tour would be a great option. You can always go for a snorkel tour to tourtuga island or deep sea finishing and bring back that monster tuna!! Mountain bike trails and Quad tours are also very popular.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hi. I'm Peter originally from Minnesota and now living full time here in Santa Teresa. I purchased property in 2005 and constructed the house in 2007 with no power when I was the very first to pioneer the mountain top that was high above the city center. Untouched and unexplored, I put all i had into several attempts at building and remodeling throughout the years. We got power hooked up the mountain in 2008. I was then able to pump from my Nicoya water well. A devotion to a dream of living 'pura vida' in Costa Rica kept me adding on needed components. I have done my best to accommodate a large group with all the comforts important to relaxing at the villa while you enjoy the infinity pool, jungle canopy, and breathtaking views and sunsets. It's my pleasure to welcome you to Santa Teresa Ocean View and help to make it the best stay possible.

Why the Owner Chose Carmen Beach, Costa Rica:
When I first saw the view here of the coastline I was hooked and have come back ever since. I believe this to be a special place that allows a unique perspective of the beaches, ocean and the world.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
CL free pool is a very unique experience and one that most enjoy. The water is drinking quality and is very very clean. The pool has a very large infinity edge overlooking playa carmen when you can sit on the underwater stools and watch the surfers.
