  • 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!"

  • A Magical Week at Casa Java

    "My husband and I and three friends just returned from a week stay at Casa Java. It was an incredibly memorable experience. The house is definitely special and even the best photos can never do it justice since there is so much character and history that you must be present to appreciate. The property is incredibly well taken care of - at any given time there are a handful of staff ensuring that everything is in order. Luxury is in the details, of which there are many - from little cabana nooks throughout the house, to the ranchos where you can practice yoga or the massage cabanas with views through the trees of the ocean and the sounds of the ocean to lull you into total relaxation. There are iguanas and beautiful birds roaming around and the short little path from the house to the beach is dripping in gorgeous light through the trees that transforms the way throughout the day and night. I highly recommend having Chef Ana for meals - hers were our favorite on the trip, especially for lunch. She's very talented, packs her food with tons of flavor, and a pleasure to have around. Venecio, the bartender makes some of the best cocktails we've ever had - hands down the best pina colada you'll ever have. I also highly recommend hiring him on days when you plan to stay at the house and bounce back and forth between the pool and the ocean. Lauren, the concierge is fantastic. She knows how to guide you towards the best possible experience for your group and constantly went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best stay possible. Santa Teresa is remote in the best possible way and the mood around town and on the beach is pure pura vida - you can't help but relax and enjoy - it's contagious. We felt like we were in the movie The Beach most of the time - it's just a magical place. I could go on and on. Thank you Carlota for your hospitality!! We hope to return again someday soon."

  • Great Home

    "My wife and 2 young girls and another family with 3 young children stayed at Casa Ying Yang for a week in April. We had a great time. The house is right off the a beautiful beach. The area in front of the house has a great surf break for experienced surfers. While the house is not super luxurious, it is very comfortable and absolutely appropriate for Costa Rica. Stefan, the owner could not have been more helpful. The house manager, Marta was terrific. She arranged everything that was required. Daily maid service kept the house very clean and comfortable. I would strongly recommend this house to anyone."

  • The Best

    "TL:DR - Really awesome house on the beach with super helpful caretaker. Good food close by. I'd give 6 stars if I could. I have just returned from 4 days at Casa Amore with my family over a long Easter weekend. Three kids, 16, 12 and 9. This place is awesome. I mean really awesome. It's just up the beach from the "downtown" crossroads area of Santa Teresa. Three large bedrooms are very nice, good beds, sheets, towels, etc. Bathrooms are also very nice with good showers. Separate large TV room with AC and big couches for when the kids need downtime. Kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed, including a Vitamix which did the job on smoothies. Bedrooms have AC, main living space does not and we didn't miss it. We didn't come to CR for the AC. The covered porch areas are nicely comfortable with couches, big dining table, hammocks, and a view through the trees to the beach and surf. Properties on either side are empty (no houses), although one of them is a preserve with occasional campers and people walking to the beach. Very low traffic there and nothing concerning. Still, plenty of privacy here. Wifi is good by CR standards. I also can't say enough good things about the caretaker Dave and his wife. They live in a house on the property that is about 100 meters closer to the road from Casa Amore. After you walk or drive by their house you won't see it since Casa Amore is generally oriented towards the beach. Dave was very responsive, very helpful, and I enjoyed talking to him about CR and the variety of options available to us during our stay. You'll see him around once or twice a day if you're outside and looking, but he's not in your space at all and most of the time I communicated with him by email. Very responsive. He was particularly helpful with getting us hooked up with surfing lessons and rentals (all newbies here), and key advice on where to swim and surf. Maid service was great and came once while we were there and that was plenty. She also did a bit of our laundry which was very helpful towards the end of a 9 day trip. For casual food within very close walking distance, nearby is Chicken Joe's. Get the fish tacos or the rotisserie chicken (or anything really). Billy also keeps some local micro brews in the fridge. Really good, and a 3 minute walk from Casa Amore. If we go back to Santa Teresa, and I hope we do, we'll stay at Casa Amore again. Not sure what else anyone could want in a rental."
