We were supposed to stay at Red Frog Villas for 2 weeks but ended up staying for 2 months. Itś a great hidden place upon the hill where you get to see the ocean. Just down the road you have everything you need such as great restaurants, super mercados, surf shops and of course the beach. The steep hill is... More

Overall, this place is very mediocre for similarly priced places in Santa Teresa. I've spent a little over 5 months in Costa Rica over the past 8 years and stayed in about 9 different places. I feel like I have a pretty good take on price and quality. I did not feel like the price was consistent with the quality... More

Very big house,spacious, comfortable and very clean. It was the perfect place for us to spend time together.... More

Red Frog Villas was affordable and amazing. Alfredo, the land-lord, was one of the friendliest people ever. Any time we needed anything, he provided it. As for the cabins themselves, they are great. Property is secure and safe and locks are provided. There was also a pool, which was nice. Great view from the property of the ocean and sunsets.... More

House was quite dirty - didn't look like they had cleaned it thoroughly in awhile. Kitchen is large, which is nice, but frig leaks water all over the floor regularly. Don't touch the exposed wiring in the upstairs shower unless you want quite a shock. Water is cold except for upstairs large room, where you have scalding hot or cold!... More
