“The most amazing beach homes and property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2008

From the moment we contacted Red Palms we knew we were in good hands. They helped us arrange a helicopter to fly us directly from San Jose airport right into their front yard, it took 20 minutes, what a plus.

When we arrived we were greeted by Javier and led to the most amazing unique beachfront villa we ever saw, the Honeymoon villa.

Everything was perfect, just the way my wife envisioned. It was the most fantastic vacation we ever had. We had one of the best meals I ever experienced at Red Palms. The owner brought us in a chef who cooked for us privately in our villa while I proposed to my wife for the third time in our marriage.

Since we´ve been home all we can think about is going back to Red Palms. We want to live there...if only we could.

Red Palms villas is probably the best locationon the best beachin all of Costa Rica. We have been going to Costa Rica for over 12 years and nothing comes close to what this guy has there.

Right on a famous surf break know as Suck Rock, I got to watch one day the surfers surf the big waves, it was like being in Hawaii. We also liked the fact that we could walk to the two best restaurants in Santa Teresa, location, location, location, this place has that pretty swen up.

And, my wife and I took our first yoga classes from an amazing brazilian girl and now we are enrolled in a couple yoga class back here in CA.

Red Palm villas was a life changing experience which is what Mike the owner said he wants to see happen to his clients. Well, in our case, he accomplished his goal, it was romantic, luxurious and the best holiday we ever had.

By the way, every Christmas Mike puts this amazing tree up on the beach, definitely a must of you can get this that time of year, everyone from miles comes to see it, one of a kind and just addingmore to the charm of thisperfect little beach estate.

Thanks Red Palms, we love all you there, hi Skippy, Javier, Mike and Muncho.

Red Palm Villas is in the perfect location... right in hip Santa Teresa but outside the bustle, and right at an awesome surf spot. We stayed in The Hummingbird Villa... totally unique and done with every attention to detail... lots of artful, creative tiling and building designs that add to the subtly elegant decor. Everything we needed was provided in the villa, and all the staff was unobtrusive but always available. The grounds are lush and gorgeous leading to the white sand beach. The best restaurants are right close-by, too. We loved it and can't wait to go back!

  • Liked — The comfort and detail of the villa.
  • Disliked — leaving it!
