  • Beautiful property and exceptional hospitality

    "What an incredible month. Everything about our stay at Villa Pochote exceeded our expectations. The Villa itself has been built beautifully (by Trey himself) - clean, spacious, bright with outstanding views from both floors. Great swimming pool, barbecue area and a lovely yoga studio free to use at your leisure with a great teacher who comes every Wednesday at sunset and teaches a class. If you want wildlife you're in the right place too - Iguanas, Howler monkeys, Whiteface monkeys, red squirrels, Coatis, an abundance of birds, the garden is teeming with life and when you sit an wait, it all comes to you. You can walk the the closest beach (Playa Manzanillo) in around 10 minutes but to get anywhere else you'll need a 4x4 or a quad/buggy as the roads are tough work otherwise. And you will definitely want to go everywhere else. So get one. The next beach along is Hermosa where I spent most of my time, great for surfing, beautiful sand, and with a guy who sells coconuts and delicious ceviche out of the back of his van for when you get hungry or thirsty. From there you're on the road to Santa Teresa, a bustling little surf town packed full to the brim with good vibes. There are a number of great bars and restaurants, plenty of surf stores and a few small supermarkets to pick up supplies. All along Santa Teresa are more pristine beaches, usually busy with local and travelling surfers. Further out from Santa Teresa you'll find plenty of nature reserves, other little towns and an abundance of staggering waterfalls (some easier to find than others). The best bit, however, is Trey and Jaclyn. Their hospitality knows no bounds. They gave us lifts to town, surf lessons, the best advice on where to go, they lent me snorkelling gear, Trey flexed his superlative BBQ skills when we all had a cookout, they booked us taxis, Jaclyn took me to the rodeo in Cobano, Trey even took time out of his day taking me around properties that were for sale when I expressed interest. The list very much goes on. Overall we count ourselves lucky to have found such a breathtaking place. If the rest of Costa Rica is as wonderful as the tiny slice we saw then what a country it is. As an unexpected bonus we have also made great friends along the way. We will surely be back. Pura Vida"

  • Once in a lifetime

    "My friend and I were looking for a place where we could feel like locals but still have the quality of an upscale hotel and Sunset Villa was just that! The villa is located right above town and has a perfect location to get to anywhere in Santa Teresa. One thing I should note is that the villa is on top of a hill (which gives you incredible views) so if you aren't planning on renting an ATV or car (which I highly recommend you do), get ready to get in shape! Cameron was incredibly helpful from the beginning when we were booking to the day we were leaving Costa Rica. His onsite caretakers Juan and Ruth were nothing but awesome. I just wish my Spanish was better so that we could tell them in person how much we liked them. Overall, we had an amazing time and can't wait to come back!"

  • A Must Stay!

    "I would recommend this house to anyone visiting Santa Teresa. The property managers were excellent - checking in on us every day and arranging any type of excursion/vacation experience we wanted. The housekeeper, Mayling, was fun to converse with and she cooked us a great Costa Rican meal. There was a family of monkeys living in the trees by the house, and I miss waking up to their "barking", along with all the exotic birds. Late April is a great time to go - the beaches we had practically all to ourselves and booking surfing lessons, 4 wheelers for a day, or even fishing was a piece of cake. The hammocks in the house were never empty - a great place to take a nap beneath the cool ceiling fan. We spent most mornings in the pool before heading out for the day. Be sure and visit Ginger's right up the street for the best coffee and french toast going! I would recommend this house to anyone."

  • Just perfect!!

    "I put together a wellness retreat for 12 of us. This estate was just perfect for us!!...We started our morning with a run on the beach, then yoga right on the yoga platform, followed by a delicious protein shake that we made in the large, clean kitchen. We relaxed throughout the day with massages on the yoga platform, or shopping in the village, or exploring the land (ATV tour, cliffs, etc.). The evening was spent with a pilates workout, a sunset drink on the beach, and family style dinner around the large beautiful table. Anna and her staff were great and we all had the trip of a lifetime. We will be back!"
