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

From the moment we decided to stay at Villa Solar our trip to Costa Rica was on cruise control! Greg Murry, the owner/manager was beyond helpful! Besides being one hell of a guy!

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. I had my 65 year old mother, 9 year old daughter and husband on our trip and we were very comfortable. The property is... More

The photos don't do this place justice. We happened to come across this place last minute and I am glad we did. Greg was fantastic! Wonderful host who truly helped us out from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. (Transportation, food spots, rentals, you name it) Even checking up on us later on in the week to... More

Great place to stay. Location was prime spot for getting around Santa Teresa. Gregg was an incredible host, helping us out with tips around town and booking transportation to our next destination. Perfect place for friends traveling wanting their own place, or 2 couples. Highly recommended.
