The three of us stayed at Villas Las Tecas for close to 2 and a half months. My husband and I accidentally ended up here one night after sunset and surely didn't regret it. We were greeted by the owner Teresita, shown the vacant villa and decided to stay 3 nights but those three nights turned into a week which turned into a month and then another 2. Teresita was more then accommodating during our stay there, always making sure we had what we needed, willing to assist and help in booking appts (Dr., lawyer, ect.), provided helpful advice, notifying us of new news, local events, and warnings, and sharing stories of the locals and past events. Yes shes a missionary like the others have stated but not once did she push religion or have outlandish 'visions' like the other posts stated. I think their reviews are harsh and far-fetched. She is truly a nice and caring lady who wants to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, making sure to never cross any boundaries. As for the Villas it's self, they are equip with everything you'd need for a long-term (or short term stay), although some of the cookware and utensils are a bit 'tired' and cheap, and the stove can use a little patience, but otherwise we were able to live and cook comfortably. Villas Las Tecas are perfectly hidden in Playa Pelada, tucked away from all the traffic which then equals dust in the dry season. It's quiet and safe.... she's never had any problems of petty-theft or robbery on her property, which truly says a lot. The pool is a great place to relax surrounded by a beautiful garden.... the gardener Saul does a great job with the property! The main area of Playa Pelada is a leisurely 10 minute walk from the Villas and the surf beach of Guiones is just another 5-10 minutes from there. There are about 5 different restaurants localed within walking distance all with a different flair to suit and please anyones palate. I'd highly recommend Villas Las Tecas. It's no 5 star accomodation but perfect for a relaxing and quiet vacation for those who'd like to discover the Nosara area. We miss it already.
