We stayed at Casa Morpho for a week in August and it was exactly what we were looking for: super close to the ocean, a/c, pool, bbq, and clean. The booking process, checkin, and checkout were really easy. Will we be coming back for sure!

We frequent Costa Rica and have been coming to this beautiful country for 14 years now. This August we had the pleasure of staying at Casa Ying Yang which is a large four bedroom house with... More

My husband and I go every year to Santa Teresa, along with a group of friends. We have friends that live there, and we have stayed in many places, but Casa Yin Yang is by far the best one. Look no further, rest assured we are coming back to this house next year. Amazing, comfortable home, right in front of... More

Recently stayed at Casa Morpho in June for a week. The house was perfect, as was the service. What is better than fresh fruit and toast delivered to you every morning?! The property is located a short distance from the beach, which was great, but we definitely took advantage of the pool. Having 2 bikes available was perfect. We utilized... More

We have stayed here at Casa Yin Yang several times and each time it is a beautiful and relaxing experience. To have a private home with open space, a pool and jacuzzi, right on the ocean is the best way to go. Having a full kitchen and barbecue allows the flexibility to have breakfast, lunch or dinner in some days,... More

Santa Teresa is an extremely small town with one narrow, rocky, dirt road and verdant, wild landscape on either side. Between the greenery, the free roaming dogs and grazing horses, this road is speckled with surf shops, Sodas (typical food spots), as well as gourmet restaurants. It is a rustic and extremely casual place, with a population consisting of locals... More

We had the pleasure of staying in Casa Morpho at the beginning of June. This is a small but very well equipped house located directly on North Santa Teresa beach. With a 3 minute walk to the beach and a great surf break directly in front of house, it is truly hard to beat. With daily cleaning and breakfast provided... More

We stayed in Casa Morpho for a long weekend at the beginning of the rainy season. Wonderful house with pool/landscaping and a 3 minute walk to the beach. Fresh fruit plate delivered every morning and daily cleaning made stay relaxing. Furnished kitchen allowed us to cook fresh fish purchased in Mal Pais.

Our mission is to offer private, well built, clean and comfortable houses with everything necessary to enjoy quality vacation time with your family and friends. This is an ongoing project, and every year we continue to make improvements to our infrastructure, houses and gardens. We are committed to becoming as sustainable and community friendly as possible.

We are also founding members of our neighborhood association, know as AVSTN for it’s Spanish acronym, volunteer at the local public school and have served on the board of directors of the local water board and AVSTN. Mariposa Private Beach Home’s commitment to improve the quality of life of our employees and growing town extends beyond our gates, as we are involved in various community projects as the recycle program, monthly beach clean-ups, education programs in the public school, public water, roads and security issues. ... more   less
