Thanks Sivan for an amazing little villa for our trip. Despite some confusion on our arrival dates, Sivan was very friendly and helpful in working with us to figure it out.
The housekeepers were also super friendly and accommodating.
We were in Santa Teresa for a wedding and it was great to have our own spacious, shady villa to call home between wedding events. The porch, kitchen, and bedrooms were beautiful and you can listen to the waves. RocaMar restaurant was right next door and served us up a delicious lunch one day and dinner for the entire wedding party another.
It's true that the wi-fi and cell phone is spotty at best, but it makes you hang up everything and just enjoy your days on the beach.
We hope to be back and we will stay at Villa Santa Teresa for sure.

This was my new wife and my first trip to Costa Rica. Having come from the jungle we were looking for a quiet, private spot to enjoy each other and the surroundings. The Villas Santa Teresa were unbelievably fantastic! Our villa was private and safe with access to the beach that couldn't be beat. We stayed for a week and wanted to stay for the rest of the season! Our hosts, Dotan and Sivan, were extremely gracious and friendly. I can not recommend the villas highly enough! We had the time of our lives - easily the best trip I have ever been on! Thank you!!

Villas Santa Teresa was absolutely amazing!! My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and loved everything about it! We were originally supposed to stay 5 nights at the villas but were lucky enough to extend to 9 nights. The Villas are very well kept and we loved having a full kitchen to make delicious fresh fruit smoothies and cook fresh caught barracuda. The beach is just a stone's throw away from the villas and is truly one of the nicest sections of beach in the area. The surfing is great and there are also some little tide pools nearby that have some interesting sea life. The location of the villas is perfect as well. It is a little bit north of the main part of town so there is less people but it is still close enough to walk or ride bicycles to shopping and restaurants. My wife a I rented bicycles for our entire stay and that worked very well. I have been to Santa Teresa 3 times now and Villas Santa Teresa is my absolute favorite place I have stayed. Would recommend the villas to anyone traveling to the Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais area. Thank you Dotan and Sivan for you generosity and hospitality!

Thank you Sivan and Dotan!! We absolutely loved the place. We booked two villas and traveled with some good friends. The villa's are extremely well kept and amazingly comfortable. We enjoyed drinks on the patio, lots of down time by the pool, and a short walk to the beach. Sivan and Dotan were great and truly helped us arrange everything from Taxi's and ATV's, to magic Jack phone service so we could call the kids back home. The grocery store is a short walk so you can stock up on your basics, but there are lots of great restaurants in the area and cabs from the Villas never cost us more than $10 USD. I highly reccomend this place on your next visit!

Our family of 4- two girls 10 and 12, spent an incredible 5 days at Villas Santa Teresa in early January. We weren't too sure what to expect as there were not too many reviews at the time of booking. But no worries! Beautiful well equipped villas very close to a beautiful safe section of beach.(Steps away) Dotan and Sivan were always available to help in any way--arrange taxis, car rental, surfing lessons or bougie board rental. It was nice to be away from the dusty centre of town. The villas (we were in #1) have lovely wrap around decks with rocking chairs sofas hammocks and dining table. We spent most of the day outside- on the porch in the pool or at the beach. We kept the sliding doors open all day - until bedtime really-and never had any issues with bugs- the occasional gecco visited and of coarse the lovely dogs would appear now and then. The villas are secure- with numbered password locks for the safe, villa door and entrance to the grounds. There is a security guard patrolling the property for 6pm-6am--although we never encountered any problems it was comforting to have him there. The Roco Mar restaurant is right next door on the beach and has excellent food. We generally ate breakfast and lunch in the villa and cooked a couple of great fish dinners there.The kitchen had everything we needed. When you arrive, Dotan will provide you with some fruit and Bottled water. The shower was always hot- and each villa has an outdoor shower to rinse off in when you come from the beach. Maria et al will come and clean up every day. Howler monkeys in the trees overhead and iguanas basking in the sun! You really need a car here or will have to take taxis to buy food. The closest store is .8 km but is not that well stocked. We rented a car for the last 3 days and dropped it off at the Tambour airport- the roads are terrible but we knew where we were going and there wasn't much traffic- it was a fun adventure!.
Over all we loved this place- Thanks for having us -Sandra

We enjoyed two fantastic weeks here in a fabulous setting with the rumbling ocean, howling monkeys, lively iguanas and great friendly service. Only minus was a very unreliable Wifi-connection and the development going on in the neighboring lot, which meant disturbing chainsaws going off as early as six in the morning. These were not normal circumstances and we were duly compensated for this inconvenience by the friendly owners, Dotan and Sivan. We can't wait to come back and can really recommend this spot for anybody seeking a slice of paradise.

We stayed one week at the villas and had a very relaxing time. Maria couldn't have been more helpful she even arrived with a new coffee machine the minute we realised we were without one! Security is good with a safe and combinations on all doors. It is very relaxing lying out in the hammock listening to the birds and howler monkeys! Enormous comfy double bed!! Go see for yourselves!
