It is not a guest house, and not a b&b. Owner was nice, but it was super awkward, not private, you are on top of each other, and not at all what I expected, especially given some of the other options in the area. Try somewhere else.

I am sorry if you truly had a bad experience - but I can't help wondering if your bad stay wasn't really at NamaStay and this review was posted to the wrong property?? I do remember (and my records also show) you and your friend staying with me - in Feb 2011 - not in Oct. 2012, as your stay... More

Tracy offers a welcoming place to rest and relax between adventures. Her place is small but her accommodating attitude makes you feel right at home. She's also just a great person to hang out with if you're in a social mood. The location is right in the heart of Santa Teresa's main strip where an endless run of shops and... More

What a nice vacation! We stayed at NamaStay for a week and had such a great time.In the morning, we enjoyed a fresh,healthy,and delicious breakfast in the comapny of Rocco the parrot.

My friend and me stayed 4 nights with Tracey in Santa Theresa. Her house is very close to the beach. Our room was very clean and had everything we needed.

Thanks so much, Yasmine! It was great meeting you guys - you two were great fun to have around - and what a fun duo to ring in the New Year with! I really did feel like I was in the middle of a Harry Potter movie. :) And I shan't forget the story of the monkey any time soon!... More

I had the pleasure of spending nearly 2 weeks at Nama Stay and must say the experience contributed greatly to my enjoyment of Costa Rica.

I spent a week at Namastay after a very troubling time for me in Santa Teresa. I needed to begin my stay a day earlier and luckily this was not a problem.

Thanks, NYC - glad I could offer safe harbor during the tempest!

I sayed for a week, the place is quiet, and clean. Off the main road, with space for parking. Walking distance to spectacular beach. Delicious breakfast, and do not be shy to ask for what you like, you will get it. Worth every penny paid. Russ. Connecticut

My wife and I stayed a single night at Namastay. $35 for 2 people with breakfast is (especially in the current state of santa teresa) a great deal.

I spent 3 nights in NamaStay at the beginning of a longer stay in Santa Teresa. Tracey rents one room in her little house and serves breakfast in the morning.

Tracey made my stay in Santa Teresa memorable. She prepared excellent breakfast everyday. Travelling solo made my stay in Namastay Surf House comfortable. The location is walking distance to the beach and supermarket. I went to Santa Teresa to practice to yoga and I was not disappointed. Awesome location!
