Why Sue Molyneux chose Santa Teresa Beach

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.

Perfect location and management

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a total of four days. Vanessa is great in managing the property. It is clean, spacious and feels really cosy. It is literally stone throw away from the beach. Anyone who can bear the unpaved roads to get to Santa Teresa should choose this property.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Santa Teresa and Casa Moderna! Casa Moderna, was simply perfect. Very comfortable, spacious, beautiful views, great location and everything you would need for the week in it. Both rental property managers Mike and Vanessa were helpful and responsive. They were a great local resource as well. Our Costa Rica vacation was great and this home rental made it even better. It is with in walking distance to many of the local restaurants (Soda's), short walks to many of the beach areas and offers a community pool all in a gated community. We look forward to going back!!

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.

Car: not necessary

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!!
