“Our third stay at Casa Mango, and we'll be back!” This was our third trip to Casa Mango and it was just as good, if not better, the third time. I cannot say enough good things about the house, the location, the beach, the monkeys that hang out at Casa Mango (every day the week we were there!!) and the wonderful restaurants. Don't hesitate -- just go! It's awesome!!!

Tropical Beach Villa / SurfHouse, Hermosa, Santa Teresa beach, 5 rooms / 12 pax.

Santa Teresa apartment

3 bedrooms / 5 bathrooms / sleeps 12

“Enjoyment” We stayed in one room of El Chante surf house which had a bathroom and deck. We normally rent in more private accommodations but enjoyed ourselves immensely. The other two rooms were rented by people that were a pleasure to meet and converse with in the shared kitchen. The host couple was very knowledgeable, helpful and genuine. They were also fluent in English. If we had a question or request they were there for us. The house is located in a nice community near the beach, just outside of town. We were able to enjoy the town and the beaches without the problems that might occur if located elsewhere. The pool was great for a quick swim. To sum it up, we plan on staying at El Chante surf house again.

“We love this home and want to come back” We have been to many upscale rental homes over the years and I have to say that the March House far exceeds anything we have stayed in before. It is truly an amazing place! It has an understated relaxing style about it, is very comfortable and well appointed with beach and ocean views from almost any angle. It was so spacious but at the same time it felt warm and inviting. With some chefs in the family we loved the kitchen which had everything we needed to cook up a storm. The gracious owner Yan looked after all our needs when it came to advice or taking care of activity reservations and he couldn't have been more helpful. He even took us on a personalized aTV tour around the area, visiting a variety of different beaches and even a waterfall. So in short...this amazing house made for a truly amazing holiday. We will be back!

“Right in the middle of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa” This rental is situated perfectly between the two towns. The house sits back just far enough off the main road to avoid the dust and noise. Walk right out and surf Carmen or a 5 minute walk to Teresa. We really enjoyed our stay!

It is clean, safe, and the kitchen is functional. Emilya and her assistant were very helpful and prompt to reply to our emails with our questions.

Villa Cocobolo - Private Ocean View Beach Villa

Santa Teresa villa

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 3

“Perfect location, Great house, Awesome view, everything you will” Villa Cocobolo is situated in the perfect spot if you are wanting to be slightly off the beaten track and have a true experience of coastal life in southern Nicoya. The home sits just on the edge of Santa Teresa/Malpais for access to great surfing beaches, restaurants and whatever amenities you'd want from town, as well as being right on the edge of a rural side of Costa Rica that is pure magic. Head south a few kilometers and have it all, head north a few kilometers and have serenity, deserted beaches and explore untouched Costa Rica at its best. The home has everything you need whether you want to cook every night, grill on the patio, chill a few cases of beer in the fridge- crank the aC or open all the windows and doors and feel the ocean breeze. You have an upstairs balcony off the bedroom and a downstairs patio off the kitchen, both great places to hang out, watch the sky change and see all kinds of wildlife working its way through the property to access fruits and flowers planted in profusion. I have stayed in Villa Cocobolo- or one of the other rooms on the property- many times now and will keep going back. Every time I'm there I see Howler Monkeys and frequently see the Capuchin Monkeys coming through the trees literally only 12 feet away from the balcony. The birds and butterflies etc., are as good as anywhere. Over my trips there I've gotten to know the owner Trey quite well as he's not only very likable but genuinely happy being there and doing what he's doing. He settled in the area more than a decade ago and can guide you with a smile to anything you're looking for. Whether that's a restaurant, a spot to fish or surf, a waterfall, a grocery store, deserted beach, European bakery or true local flavor on back roads. Even if you want to look for land or a house while you're in the area he's going to know something valuable, steer you perfectly and share his knowledge of Costa Rica and the area freely. A really great host. Book it without hesitation!!

Villa ALMENDRO of Villas Solar, Walk to Beach, Best Surf, Market and Restaurants

Santa Teresa villa

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 6

“A great place to relax” We stayed in the Carambola Villa for a bit over two weeks and had a really lovely and relaxing stay. The villa is designed with a couple in mind. A huge comfy bed, excellent air-conditioning (installed in the bedroom, but it can cool the whole place), nice bathroom with a good shower, kitchen and verandah complete with a hammock. The Santa Teresa beach is really close and you can easily walk to Playa Hermosa, where there are fantastic rock pools which you can swim in at low tide (it's directly across from the Tapas Restaurant as you head towards Playa Hermosa). Greg the owner is a great guy who is super helpful and will do what ever he can to make your stay enjoyable. The caretaker family who live on the secure property are really lovely and helpful people, and the resident dog (named Luna) is a friend to everyone! There is a well stocked supermarket a short walk away but if you're not up for cooking there are a multitude of dining out options for any budget. In particular we would suggest a visit to Rancho Burger and more than one visit to Greg's juice bar which is in the shops that back onto the private and secure property where the villa is located. We highly recommend this place if you're wanting a self-catering option in Santa Teresa!

Beachfront Villa Bonita

Santa Teresa villa

“Still Paradise” This was our second stay at Villa Bonita in two years. We loved it so much last summer, we had to come back. Villa Bonita is nothing short of paradise. Everything is taken care of by the awesome staff, allowing you to completely relax not have a care in the world. Janet the cleaning lady is extremely professional and courteous, and is a master at towel art! Emilya is always available to help with any problems, the pool is always clean, the beach is a twenty second walk away, and Banana Beach restaurant and bar is right next door. My 20 year old nephew came with us this year and found it difficult to leave the front porch. It was too beautiful and serene. He definitely wants to come back to Villa Bonita! Thank you Emilya for running such a great operation. You are definitely a step above all of the other rentals I have visited!

“Exceeded expectations.” Spent 5 nights at Sandy Lane with my wife and 3 sons (ages 14, 12 & 8) This property and support staff were simply perfect. The home and location is beautiful, the staff (Christian, Herman and Lubis) gracious, welcoming and thorough. Santa Teresa is a kick, memorable for its charm, authenticity and friendliness. We felt the combination of the home, setting and staff provided the perfect Costa Rican experience that definitely exceeded our expectations. Our family loved every minute of it...

“Too good to be true” We stayed at Fuego Lodge for 5 weeks and felt extremely lucky the whole time to have found it! Even before we arrived I was so happy with how helpful Barbara answering my many questions about the Lodge, being their with children, and Santa Teresa in general. Fuego Lodge feels like a sanctuary even though it's just a quick walk off the main street. It's laid out beautifully with a clean, lovely pool surrounded by lush flowers and trees. Our place was ideal for a family with two children with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Having a cleaner every day was amazing. Barbara and her family made us feel truly welcome as friends. They always gave us great advice and ideas for how to have the best time and I really thank Barbara and her wonderful family for making our vacation truly special. We can't wait to return to Fuego Lodge soon!

About Santa Teresa

Imagine white sands, turquoise waters and surfer dudes galore and that's exactly what you'll be getting in Santa Teresa. Despite being only a tiny beach village, this destination has plenty to offer. If you're hoping to go to Santa Teresa this year, be sure to book your vacation rental with FlipKey!

About Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa is just about 150 km west of the capital city of Costa Rica, San Jose. Geared up for the younger generation, this destination is well known for its fantastic surfing opportunities and idyllic beaches.

The tremendous waves of the Pacific Ocean attract surfers from all over the globe; and are ideal for both beginners and experts depending on which beach you pick. Playa Carmen is more suited for those starting out, and many beaches around the resort offer the opportunity to join surf camps.

Way back when, Santa Teresa started off as a small fishing village, depending on their catch as well as local agriculture for their income. These days, the area largely depends on the tourist industry.

Gallo Pinto is one of the most common dishes within Costa Rica, consisting of rice, black beans and often served with fried or scrambled eggs. Make sure you try it!

What to do

Besides the ultimate surfing experience, visitors also travel to Santa Teresa to take on many other activities. Many may decide to go horseback riding to check out a number of key attractions in the area. 

There's also the opportunity to visit the Coco Blanco Nature Reserve which hosts a huge 150 species of birds. During the expedition, you'll also be surrounded by gorgeous forest land with spectacular ocean views, so it's definitely worth a trip.

If you're looking to explore the beauty of the area, many tourists decide to rent bicycles to venture across the destination to visit beaches and other local villages such as Mal Pais which is, again, another popular location for surfers. Perfect for beginner and experienced surfers, there are also other activities to experience at this location such as scuba diving, sports fishing and kite surfing.

Top Santa Teresa travel tips

Most visitors travel around Santa Teresa via public transport, and many links can transport to the neighboring cities of San Jose, Cobano, Mal Pais and Montezuma. There’s also the opportunity to rent a car if you'd prefer.

The majority of restaurants include a 10% tip which is automatically added onto your bill, so check before you leave your change on the table. If you think they deserve a little extra, a few coins will always be welcome.

If you're on the lookout for a surfer’s paradise with plenty of activity to keep you occupied throughout your stay, you’ll love Santa Teresa. To find the best vacation rentals in Santa Teresa, browse FlipKey to secure your stay.

Beachfront Villa Bonita
Living in a dream

Villa Bonita was the perfect vacation home for our family. We were a group of 9 (including a baby and a 5 year old) and the house had plenty of space for all of us. Most of the days were spent in the outdoor area, either swimming in the pool or cooking in the outdoor kitchen. We enjoyed being in the heart of it all and became quite proficient in the local shopping scene. We had our favorite breakfast place, supermarket and amazing restaurants. Dani and Emiliya were the perfect hosts! They were super responsive when we needed them but gave us plenty of privacy and space...so much that by the end of our 8 days we felt like it was a second home. We loved being steps away from the beach, going for daily walks, collecting shells, enjoying the surf and the sunsets. There is plenty of sight seeing around but we were mostly content to just lazy about and relax at the house and the local town. Looking back it truly felt like a dream and we see ourselves visiting again. There is just something special about Santa Teresa and Villa Bonita. Thank you so much for an amazing vacation.see more
