Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Kevin,

Well, we are finally home and feeling back to "normal" life so I wanted to take a moment and send you a big "Thank You" for letting us stay at your gorgeous property and experience Santa Theresa. We had a fabulous time. As you probably know, we stayed almost a week at the property. We went to Montezuma twice and loved the hiking and waterfalls. We absolutely LOVED the food everywhere we went, but especially each night as we tried a different place to eat along the dusty Santa Theresa streets. We rented boogie boards and enjoyed the waves and spent afternoons in the hammocks by the ocean, reading and napping. The rooms were beautiful--comfortable and cozy....

Fabulous location and a beautiful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location on the beach! We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect and very clean and the outdoor kitchen was really nice (and a great place to hang out late night!). I would strongly recommend this home to anyone. Thank you very much!

Beautiful private cottages on the beach at the end of Santa Teresa

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 days at Los Almendros. And it was exactly as promised. Beautiful, beach front, romantic. It is a little slice of heaven tucked between ultra high end villas, and mid range surf cottages. The cottage itself is basically perfect. Outdoor shower up front to wash up after surfing, and a secluded outdoor shower out back, with a tree growing in the shower!! Nothing better than showering under the stars. The room is fully air conditioned as well, which allows you to get a good nights sleep. It's about a 100m walk to the beach, but it's all part of the property and you can see the beach the whole way. You can take some of the lounge chairs from the kitchen down to sit on, if you don't have your own. We did that every day. As for the kitchen, it is shared with the other cottage, but it's quite big and has two fridges. More than enough space to accommodate 5 or 6 people. Beautiful kitchen table with a fan over top. There is also a blender...for making smoothies. That came in handy.

The only tricky part is finding the place, as there is no signage out front. But you will find it and the property managers are very attentive in helping out. Make sure you get setup on Whatsapp with them before going. It's best if you have some for of transportation in Santa Teresa, as the closest grocery story is about 1.5km away. Walkable yes...but not a good use of vacation time.

All in all, a truly great location and well worth the money. We were really happy we stayed here.

A very quiet and private and beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

My friend Laura and I had a most delightful nearly 3 week stay here.

On the northern end of the town of Santa Teresa - which was perfect for the seclusion and peace it brought.

Staff was amazing in their helpfulness - especially Glori.

Sweet traditional bungalow with lush plantings providing privacy and lots of nearby bird songs. Great large outdoor yet private shower. Very short walk across property to ideal beach - much quieter than the area nearer town. Two hammocks near same, in shade often, for lounging.

Approx. 15 minute walk along beach and then up to main road to large grocery. Longer walk to busier part of town - where we very rarely went. We largely stayed put and relaxed in the sublime setting.

Simple shared kitchen that is open air and also has large handsome dining table adjacent on which we had a couple larger meals/dinners with the friends we made in the area - perfect!

Very good restaurants nearby - especially Cafe Sociale - which is just off this property to the south and a favorite of locals and could not be beat for breakfast or lunch. Osa is a fine spot for dinner - 10 minute walk south if that.

We always slept with the doors wide open and the ceiling fan on and had no use for AC - although we gathered that is in the offing soon soon for 'our' bungalow and has already been put in place of the other unit here.

Surf in nearly constant along this entire shore (amazing sound) so one should use caution regarding currents and rip tides. We swam every day though - paying attention to conditions and not venturing far from shore or near rocks to the north.

We rented a 4-wheeler for one day - thanks to Glori - and explored - but otherwise had no interest in leaving such a wonderful vacation spot.

We thank the owners and the caretakers and the cleaning staff for providing such a great get away for us both!!

A little piece of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in January of 2017. It is by far on our top 10 list of places we have traveled to. If you were like us, searching tons of different sites and reviews for places to stay, just stop now and book this! The bungalow we stayed in was newly renovated (I think the construction noise the previous reviewer mentioned was to finish our bungalow before we arrived). We were awakened each morning at sunrise to the sounds of the jungle coming alive, and lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the surf. The beach is only a couple hundred yards from the bungalow, and is very private, most mornings there were only several people out enjoying the waves. We rented a 4-wheeler, which was awesome, as it is a long (but very enjoyable) walk along the beach to the town center. Our bungalow was kept very clean, our housekeepers were very through. Gloriana was quick to respond to help with anything we needed, and knew all the best places and things to do in the area. We enjoyed our stay here, and hope to come back again soon!

The worst vacation I have ever had. Please read before you book this place

  • 1 of 5

The description of this place says quiet charming secluded but what we got was not that at all. Friday when we showed up we were informed that men would be on the property doing construction work. Saturday at 7am 3 motorcycles and a few men on bikes show up and are there till sundown. I reach out to the owner to try and get this resolved but by Tuesday I asked to have Hanit Selekter from Cala luxury vacation homes, they are the ones that manager the property, to please come over so we could talk. I explained to her how this was not at all what I paid for. I felt very uneasy changing, taking a shower etc.. with 4-6 strange men just feet away from my villa. The management company was very rude and told me to go find another place to stay that they needed to finish the work. I final got them to take the workers off the property late Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday and Thursday were great no workers and sounds of power tools. On Thursday night I get a message from Hanit that the workers will resume on Friday. Once again 4-6 men there all day till 8pm when finally my son who speaks some Spanish explained to them that we were trying to go to sleep we had a long travel day in the morning to get home. out of the 8 days I stayed I got 2 days free of construction work being done. There were other issues as well like being given the wrong key to the safe and when I sent a message so I could get the right one it took close to 10 hours to be answered. I was forced to take all valuables with me on the beach (which was a pain) we had no hot water to wash dishes with. We were also told that the big bottled water dispenser was for our use and would be refilled if needed, that never happened. The whole experience was terrible. We had no peace and quiet on the property like I was told. I only gave 1 star because you have to give at least 1 star to submit a review.
