Once we booked, Selvaggia the owner, was so helpful and so on top of communicating back and forth with us regarding all types of travel questions, etc. She...

This place is gorgeous! An oasis in every way. It's set back from the dusty road and is a comfortable spot of shade during the midday heat. Nestled amongst the lawn and gardens, the pool is clean and inviting. Our breakfasts were a delicious start to the day and we often lingered over another cup of coffee to share conversation...

This is a beautiful place to spend your vacation days while in Santa Teresa. The accommodations were excellent (very comfortable bed, large room and bathroom, balcony); the food was phenomenal; and the customer service was great! The owners are very hospitable and treat you like family. They were both extremely helpful in their recommendations of places to eat, things to...

My friend and I came to Santa Teresa for a surf trip feb 2012. We are both in our late 20's. We booked this place based on the reviews.

After booking a last minute villa at Otra Lado, we weren't entirely sure what to expect. Driving in through the dusty hodge podge of restaurants, surf shops and hotels that is Santa Teresa, we were a little uncertain of whether we wanted to stay in this touristy Surf Town. Walking up the unassuming gravel lane and under the quaint tropical...
