Why Sue Molyneux chose Puntarenas

This property is amazing because of its close proximity to all Santa Teresa has to offer. The Gated community with 24hr security and a beautiful swimming pool are two of the best features of MarAMar; allowing the customer to feel safe and secure amidst the jungle of Costa Rica.

A great house for a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Santa Teresa is now our favorite vacation spot and this house made it comfortable and memorable. It has a beautiful terrace and lots of room and is located within a gated community with a great pool. It is only a short walk to the beach and a wide variety of excellent restaurants. The house was modern, well laid out and contained all of the amenities. The manager of the property, Mike, added to making our trip perfect. He was helpful, responsive and a great guy! He was a great local resource and helped set up fishing, zip-lining and other excursions. We will definitely be back!!

Awesome house, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded all my expectations. The feng shui was amazing from the entrance of the community at mar a mar to the house itself. Location wise it's a short walking distance to the best stretch of surf in the area. Mikey is the man, friendly and very on it. Will be returning sometime soon!

Casa Moderna

  • 4 of 5

We visited Santa Teresa and stayed in Casa Moderna. The house accompdates 6-7 people comfortably. It is well kept and in a peaceful gated community with beautiful gardens and a nice pool. Conveniently located about 1/4 of a mile from the beach. Santa Teresa is a charming and friendly town with a great vibe...delicious food places, you just drive your ATV everywhere (best way to move around town). If the house had an ocean view it'd be great but it doesn't...however the view of the gardens from the balcony is great.

Ideal vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house, the beach, the pool, the nice village and the great restaurant makes this place the perfect fit for relax vacation. The service was excellent, the house was just what it needed to be comfortable, nicely located and quiet. The waves were great to watch or to surf we would have stayed more but only had a week!

Fantastic spot! A prefect getaway place!

  • 5 of 5

Whether renting for a group of couples, family or friends this is the ultimate spot to stay. A beautiful well taken care of gated community with a very tranquil pool awaits you. Walking right across to the perfect beach spot. You can't ask for anything more prefect on a trip. I wold recommend this place by far! The managers of the property are the best too. Super friendly and will assist with anything needed. The town is very close and there are shops that are easily the best to get to. The restaurants nearby are fantastic as well! Seriously, everyone needs to check this little secret spot out!

Pampered in the Jungle!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this property justice! Immaculate home in a small gated community right on the main drag. You'll experience luxury and all the amenities you could ask for, all while enjoying jungle surroundings and beach access mere steps away. You can drive or walk to beach, shopping, dining, convenience store, nightlife, etc. I never felt unsafe, but I did enjoy the added benefit of privacy the secured gate offered. Not only did the accommodations exceed my expectations, but the caretaker couple Mike and Jessica were beyond amazing. All my questions and uncertainties about my first time there melted away upon meeting them. All our needs were attended to and then some. They really listened to our ideas and gave the best recommendations to suit our needs. I've traveled quite a bit, and I've never felt so pampered in such a rustic setting. This is a must do for anyone looking in the area!

The maramar gated community, only steps away from the world class surfing beach of santa teresa, is the perfect getaway for those looking to vacation in style, comfort, and security. While only steps away from the rawness and untouched beauty of the southern nicoya peninsula, you will still feel comfortable with all the amenities of casa moderna. Tucked away in the hillside of santa teresa, you will awake to the sounds of howler monkeys and parrots in the surrounding jungle canopy while soaking in the view of the pacific ocean. After a day of fun in the sun and surf, you will most likely spend the evening on one of our ocean view porches or take a 3 minute stroll down to playa santa teresa for sunset. The surrounding town and beaches have so much to offer! From yoga, surfing, hiking, and fishing to atv tours to the famous montezuma waterfalls, the southern nicoya peninsula truly is a nature lover's paradise!!
