  • Awesome place, perfect location.

    "We traveled to Costa Rica in Late April and stayed 4 nights at this place in Santa Teresa. We were 3 couples (6 people total) and it worked out perfect for each couple to have their own bedroom. It was very hot and very dry on the Nicoya Peninsula with it being the end of dry season, I would love to come back when the area is much more lush and verdant. With that said, it was a godsend to have a pool and A/C units in the bedroom. The units cool down the rooms very quickly, therefore we could turn them on as needed and conserve energy. We were able to drive up the hill easily in the Daihatsu Terios, these cars have 4WD but we didn't even need to turn it on to get up the hill. You definitely don't need to rent ATVs for the week unless if you don't have a rental car and don't feel like walking up the hill/ The location is perfect because you are away from the noise and dust of the main street without being far away from the best beach and restaurants. We ate one evening at Brisas Del Mar just down the hill, this restaurant is phenomenal albeit a bit pricy. Habaneros was a great place to go for a sunset dinner and tasty margaritas. We did breakfast at The Bakery one of the days and the other 3 days cooked breakfast at the house. Be careful when reaching for the dishes, as we did find a scorpion tucked behind a cutting board. My biggest critiques of the house are the lack of real cabinets in the kitchen to keep the dishes clean and scorpions out and that the second bathroom is not air conditioned or even well ventilated. We did a 24 hour surf board rental which was a blast and another day rented ATVs and did a big loop around the peninsula, visiting Montezuma and much more. I don't know that I will be returning to Costa Rica anytime soon, but if I did, I would definitely stay at this property again."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Mariposa Vacation Homes, the only place I'll ever stay at in Santa Teresa.

    "This was my second stay at Mariposa Vacation Homes, the first being in Casa Morpho. This time, I brought the family to Casa Yin Yang, the largest of the 3 homes on the property. It has a beautiful layout; open air kitchen, an excellent wooden dining table outside under an all encompassing awning that connects the two structures to give them an "all in one feel". There are multiple master bedrooms and 2 outdoor showers and a large structure housing a dual burner propane grill. From the moment we arrived we were treated like honored guests; Marta, the concierge, met us at the gate and from then on it was a most memorable vacation. Stefan, the owner, called after we were settled in to make sure everything was fine. The housekeepers, Yadira and Jenny are very friendly and kept the house spotless, even with 7 year old twins running amuck. Hector, in charge of maintenance/pool services is super friendly and the saltwater pool was always perfectly refreshing under his care. What more can I say? 5 stars for everything, especially the personal service we received, and even though we were there during the rainy season, it never hindered our fun; we surfed, zip lined in the jungle canopy, went horseback riding on the beach, waded in tide pools, listened to the geckos in the evening and chased iguanas and hermit crabs during the day, we cooked in and ate out. The zip line and horseback riding was arranged by Marta, and they couldn't have gone smoother. I'll be back in December for another surf trip!"
