My friend and I stayed at Casa Macondo recently. I loved this place! It's so beautifully built with such attention to detail. I loved the feeling of having the indoor area outside yet it was very private. I would have stayed in the house for my entire vacation but I did want to see the beach and do other activities. The beach is a short walk through the rain forest and is very secluded.
Christina set us up with a wonderful guide who taught us how to surf. He also took us horseback riding along the beach and up towards the inland. So beautiful. On another day we snorkled and along with our guide, walked through a protected rain forest to explore the native wildlife.
The property was very well maintained and included security. I would recommend renting an SUV as the villas are located about 20 minutes from town, however there is a market and a few restaurants within walking distance. If you're in to yoga, this is the place to be. I would highly recommend Chistina and her villas to anyone traveling to Costa Rica.

We were sad to leave Casa Macondo after our 2 weeks stay.
The villa was perfect for the two of us and for friends who visited us part of the time. We marveled at the unique character of every suite and the endless attention to design detail, comfort, and luxury. The villa is big enough where you bring your own extended family and friends and have as much together time as you need, but also have nooks of space when you choose to have some private down time -- such as getting a massage or taking a yoga class. The pool area is a private paradise, the outdoor bathrooms are a special treat, and it's just a short walk to the beach.
The location is just far enough away from the town of Santa Teresa that we had total privacy and peace, but close enough to enjoy great restaurants and easy shopping. There is a great sushi place walking distance, that has the best Japanese food we ever had, do not miss it!
We alternated between trying some of the restaurants in the area and picking up fresh fish to bring home and put on the grill.
I never tired of watching the beautiful birds in the trees around the pool. We enjoyed many amazing sunsets on the beach in front of the house, a really amazing beach were we surfed and took long walks in the morning...we were often alone there, what a treat!! On the way to the beach we often saw the howler monkeys munching on leaves in the treetops right on our beach path!
Rent a car so you can really get around and see all that this country has to offer. You'll encounter some bumpy roads, big potholes, unexpected adventures, and you'll have a blast! Thanks Cristina for sharing your amazing villa and for all the help with our needs and questions. We can't wait to return to your paradise!

This is the best of two worlds. Underdeveloped Costa Rica coast village and beach with hyper modern amenities. The house is gorgeous. It is a mix of Italian modern and Balinese garden style. The gardens are beautiful. The house is furnished with comfortable and tastful teak furniture from Indonesia. Very comfortable for a couple, a family or friends. Our family spent days going from pool to beach and back. Great kitchen for entertaining or nice options near by to eat. You can also have someone come in to cook !
