  • A wonderful house seconds from the beach

    "We had such a wonderful time at Casa Tortuga. The home was situated just a 1 minute walk to the beach and the store. The home has everything you need for a wonderful stay. Nicole and her team (maid service, pool service, concierge) were so friendly and helpful. I can't say enough good things about this place."

  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • 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"
