  • Surfing trip to Santa Teresa

    "Had a wonderful time staying at Casa Infinity. The house was beautiful and we loved the outside pouch and pool. Julie was fabulous and did an excellent job handling all our requests. She did everything from handling our transportation to setting up fishing and a trip to Tortuga. I highly recommend Aaron and David also. They cooked us dinner one night and we went fishing another day with them. If I had to recommend anything I would say bring plenty of cash because nobody takes credit cards in Santa Teresa. Casa Infinity was definitely a winner!"

  • Fair with Flair

    "I read the review complaining about missing pool tiles, and I have been thinking about what constitutes value in a vacation rental. I guess value occurs when reality meets expectations. My wife and I stayed at Cocobolo for eight nights in March, followed two weeks later by four days in Cancun. In such places as Maui and Cancun, the native people, plants and wildlife have been eradicated to make room for wall-to-wall hotels, each with its own private chunk of beach, a pool and a place to get drunk while being catered to by white-jacketed servants. If this is your idea of heaven, then by all means go to Maui. We found Trey helpful and friendly, attentive and supportive. He did not, however, make our drinks. Cocobolo is "in amongst 'em." The roads are terrible and dusty, but Cocobolo gets much less dust than does anyplace six miles away in Santa Teresa. We enjoyed buying local fish and produce in S.T. and Cobano, and picked up our de rigeur souvenir machete at the hardware store in Cobano. Trey took us fishing one day, and we drove the Pacific Coastal Highway, i.e. the beach at low tide, and we hit nearly 60 mph on the smooth, open sand. Of course, we had rented a car. The beaches are extensive and very sparsely populated, despite there being good fishing and a shallow, gradual, sandy slope into the water. I estimate I waded out 100 yards and was no more than waist-high, except when Manzanillo's famous surf came crashing in. Great for beachcombing, suntanning and cloud watching. Monkeys in the trees every day -- both howlers and white-faced. We saw violaceous trogons, cinnamon hummingbirds and other exotic-to-us birds. I don't know if the air conditioning worked, because we never turned it on. Lovely weather throughout. The "missing" screening around the pools was not missing. It was being installed, and the hooks had just been welded to the posts. There is no law against writing a negative review, but I can say we are happy the guests at the other villa were much less dour than our predecessor. Negative: the one thing that caught me off guard was that I expected somebody else's vacation house that was being let for weeks for income. Trey has three or four (didn't count 'em, and they are scattered) on the property. Would we go back? Probably not, but only because our history says we go forward. We had a great time. Thanks, Trey!"

  • Great place for a family to relax

    "We took our 2 children (2 and 4 yrs old), grandparents and an uncle to Casa Tortuga and had a wonderful time. It's a nice place for 2 families to relax, close to the beach, north side of Playa Santa Teresa. About a 75 meter walk to the beach, small swimming pool which was a great size for our kids. All and all, a clean place, away from the more crowded areas of Santa Teresa and playa del Carmen, but still close enough to hit all the restaurants etc."

  • The most AWESOME spot in Santa Teresa

    "If you're looking for a laid back, convenient location for a Costa Rican getaway, Casa Buena Vida is the place for you.....I rented the compound for three weeks in February....the property is steps to the beach as well as the best beach bar in all of Santa Teresa....and it is located at the midpoint of the Mal Pais/Playa Carmen/Santa Teresa Beaches.....there are many fantastic restaurants all within walking distance and the super market is a block away....although the property is just off the main road, once inside the gate you feel like you're in your own world.....it was very hot in February so having your own pool is a must.....and the pool at Casa Buena Vida was great for a plunge and big enough for laps.....in the main house, the bedrooms were very comfortable with great beds and well air conditioned and street noise was not an issue.....and the kitchen and living space was well appointed.....the staff as well as manager Brett went out of their way to be helpful and with an over night security guard at the front gate we felt very safe.....I can't say enough good things about Casa Buena Vida ......I have traveled all over Costa Rica and by far this is my favorite spot....."
