My husband and I visited Santa Teresa and stayed in Villa Carambola for 2 1/2 weeks. Our stay there exceeded our expectations. The house was beautiful, clean, and comfortable and Greg (the owner) was very friendly, helpful, and professional. We spent much of our time at the house because it was such a peaceful sweet space. We would definitely visit... More

Villas solar are super clean with beautifully kept grounds. There are some cheap eats really close by that are super yummy, and a short walk to many restaurants and bars (although renting an atv to get around can be fun!). Also very close to the stunning beach in Santa Teresa as well as the surf! Greg is the host with... More

Villas Solar were everything we wanted them to be. Very central to the action in Santa Teresa (only 5mins to the beach and close to lots of restaurants) but securely tucked off the main road. Upon arrival the owner Greg gave us lots of informtIon about the local area and the property and made us feel incredibly welcome. We stayed... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a two week getaway to relax on the beach and do some writing and drawing. When we found Greg's place, we knew this was the perfect place. Safe community, close to the beach, and away from hustle and bustle of the city. Greg is an exceptional host, helping with or personally arranging everything... More

It was such a beautiful apartment, clean and so close to the beach. Greg dropped a few times to make sure we had everything we needed and was super helpful and kind. The premises were secure and we felt safe staying there. I would highly recommend this villa and would definitely go back myself. The beach is also really close... More

I had a great time at Vila Solar. The small complex feels very safe and homie. It was everything we wanted. A little home away from home. The property manager was just great. He was very helpful and welcoming.

Villas Solar was perfect for what we were looking for on our family trip. We rented one of the larger units and it was bigger than it looked in the pictures, which was a nice surprise.
