  • Fantastic! A Perfect House And a Perfect Location!

    "Where do I start...? Easy to book with owner, they actually called me soon after my inquiry about the house since I had a lot of questions. It was so much easier to talk to someone directly rather that keep writing emails. The house is gorgeous! The location is one of the best on the bay! It is perfect for a large group. We travelled with another family, and had 6 kids ranging from 11-17 with us. The layout of the house provides privacy for everyone, and the master bedrooms are located away from the common areas so they are very quiet. The master beds are SUPER comfy! Loved the HUGE bathroom and safe. Kitchen is stocked with enough dishes and gadgets to make meal preparation a breeze! The pool was used daily, and there is plenty of patio furniture for naps or just relaxing and reading a good book. Surfing is fantastic right in front of the house (we stayed there in late November), and we saw several of the locals surfing there daily, including Ugo, who was our 'concierge' while in Costa Rica. If we needed dinner recommendations, tour recommendations, a meal prepared at the house, Ugo was always there to help. We rented ATVs for the duration of our stay, and I highly recommend it, although it's not necessary if you don't mind walking to restaurants etc. There is a grocery store a two minute walk from the house, very handy. Kids loved going there if we needed something. Several other stores are located a little further away, and the ATVs came handy for that as well. We flew into San Jose, and chartered a private plane with Carmon Air to take us to Tambor. This was one of the highlights of the trips for the kids. The cost for the 10 of us was only a tad more than a regular scheduled flights. Very convenient and easy way to get to Tambor which is the closest airport to Santa Teresa. We are all hoping to go back to this gorgeous house sometime soon."

  • Clean beauty!!

    "My husband and I added 3 days onto the beginning of our vacation and started with Casa Yin Yang. Boy are we glad we did! We have been visiting Costa Rica twice a year for the past 6 years and always stay in multiple places each stay. Casa Yin Yang was by far the cleanest, most attentive and professional place we have ever encountered! Jenni the housekeeper brought us fresh bread, homemade marmalade and fresh fruit every morning and kept the place spotless!! Thank you Jenni! Marta, the concierge was just as wonderful with a wealth of information and even scheduled us to meet up with a local fisherman to get fresh red snapper right off the boat! We used the gas grill every night, including the red snapper. Worked to perfection. The grounds are beautiful, the beach is beautiful, the pool and jacuzzi were beautiful, the house is beautiful...so grateful to Stefan for giving us the opportunity to stay at such an incredible place!"

  • 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."

  • Relaxed Luxury!!

    "The Beach Estates was as beautiful as the pictures. We were definitely not disappointed. We used the private air charter from San Jose to Tambor. I highly recommend this. It was an amazing experience and the looks on my family's as we took off were priceless. There is a $2.50 tax per person when you land and take off in Santa Teresa so be be prepared to pay it. We had some confusion because the person collecting said 250 per person so we thought it was $250 per person. We resolved that quickly. We had Chef Alex cook for us twice during our stay. It was wonderful. The first time on the night of our arrival was especially relaxing after a day of travel. We sat poolside and relaxed while our wonderful meal was prepared. Johnny, our concierge, was amazing! He arranged everything for us while there. Of the activities that we did, I would recommend the beachside horse back riding, the yoga, massage, and surf lessons. We had bad experiences with the Tortuga Island tour (not the fault of The Beach Estates staff) so we would skip that if we were to return. We had been advised to limit the cash we brought with us by friends that travelled to Costa Rica in the past. That was a mistake. The ATM in Santa Teresa will only let you withdraw $100 per day. Johnny was able to assist me with going to the bank to get a larger withdrawal. The fees were extremely high though. Just be aware and bring all of the cash with you that you will need for the trip. My only small complaint about our stay was with towel service from the housekeepers. We started out with 9 guests but only had 7 towels. You also have to pay extra to have towels exchanged daily. We asked for this towel service but never really got it. It would have been nice to have fresh clean towel each day, but we survived. I would definitely book here again if we return to Costa Rica!"
