This property is a gorgeous, new, contemporary addition to Santa Teresa designed to be eco-friendly while also giving you all of the comforts of home. The large sliding doors and windows lining the walls of both stories make use of the ocean views and breezes and make you feel like you are nestled within the surrounding trees and flowering plants. This home was built in 2009 with an attention to detail to make your stay as comfortable as a 5 star hotel. The entire house and cabina are situated facing the West/Ocean, giving you views from every room of the many local trees and foliage, with glimpses of the glassy ocean crashing in the distance. Both levels have large patios and covered balconies allowing you to take full advantage of the indoor/outdoor spaces. We have screens on all doors and windows, and ceiling fans throughout the house... Read more
