  • Wonderful stay!

    "Two couples traveling together and we can't say enough about this wonderful Villa. When we arrived and Greg was there to meet us. After a quick tour we were on our way to the beach to catch our first sunset. Greg and staff were very helpful with all kinds of ideas for our stay! The apartment was very clean and walking distance to stores, restaurants and the beach was right across the street! The area was very safe and secure! We will return again for sure!"

  • Perfect, cool spot for Costa Rican surfing and eating adventure!

    "We truly lucked out by choosing Casa Buena Vida. Our group consisted of two families, and it felt like this property was designed specifically for us. My husband, daughter, and I stayed in the cabana which felt like a modern, luxury hotel suite. It gave us a nice quiet space to call our own while being just steps (literally like 10 steps!) from the pool and only a few more steps to the main house. The main house had a great kitchen and grill (for all of that fish you'll catch if you go fishing with Toto out of Mal Pais), huge patio complete with breeze-generating and bug-reducing outdoor ceiling fans, and the coolest modern living room for lots of hanging out and fort-building (by the kids, we swear it was only the kids!). It was very hot while we were there, and probably always is, but each bedroom on the property had amazing individual AC units to ensure comfort day and night. And the pool, oh the pool! It was beautiful, refreshing, fun - it absolutely made the property feel like a resort. A pool like this is an absolute MUST if you are traveling with kids; we must have spent no less than 4 hours a day in it. For anyone traveling with young kids like mine (15 months), the pool was especially perfect as it had a pretty large shallow "pad" (maybe 1.5' deep) that the littles could play in without having to be in the main deep section. The location of the house really can't be beat either. Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are such cool little towns with great vibes and GREAT food! That was the biggest surprise for us. We had so many amazing meals in the week we were there (Katana, The Bakery, Brisas del Mar, Amici, Shambala, even the beach bar/restaurants Banana Beach and Habaneros).Casa Buena Vida is walking distance or super short cab ride to all of these. Plus the house is practically on the beach (maybe half a city block). The waves and current are a bit strong to turn your kids loose in, but my toddler and I enjoyed plenty of time playing in the sand and letting the water crash over our feet. Calmer Hermosa Beach is a 20 minute/$20 cab ride away and is great for learning to surf, playing in the small waves with the kiddos, and chasing hermit crabs in the sand. Other posters have mentioned the amazing staff at the house, and I couldn't agree more. Between the housekeeper, pool guy, gardeners, and overnight security guard we felt very pampered and VERY safe. The only thing that could be better is if we were still there........."

  • 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!"

  • 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!"
