Gumbo Limbo Villas
Ranked #23 of 27 Santa Teresa B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 11, 2009

GL is located on one of the Highest points along the Mal Pias, Santa Teresa, Hermosa, stretch of coastline. #1, the view over the lay of the land and surf breaks rules, (zero guess work on where to surf that day, #2 out of the dust, (nonpaved roads in town = dusty environments down below), #3 An awesome dining environment with a view, (Home cooked Italian rules) , #4 - quality is first class without breaking the bank. #5 Oh yes, you will get to see Mono's up close!(monkeys) 3 families share the environment as GL has had limited impact on the Mt.

Still in it's first season, there are normal issues that are being addressed. (some maintanance/improvements are in progress-NO nail pounding though) As time goes on GL will be running smooth.

The drive up is worth the efforts, even if it's just for a Sunset Drink or two.

4 Wheel Drive would be helpful and I would say a must if you travel during the rainy season.

Pura Vida!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Gumbo Limbo is a unique bed & breakfast located in the hills of Santa Teresa, just 2 minutes to Santa Teresa beach and town. Along with stunning ocean views, Gumbo Limbo's central, hilltop location provides seclusion- a nice break from the dust and bustle of town, while being only a 2 minute drive to the beach and main road. A 4x4 vehicle, which is generally better for Costa Rica roads, is recommended to reach our property. Each of our villas is surrounded by lush, tropical nature, giving total privacy, comfort, and a real feeling of being in the jungle. From every corner of our property, you can find amazing ocean and mountain views. Our beautiful infinity pool is the perfect spot to relax and watch the best sunsets Santa Teresa has to offer. A full breakfast is included in your stay. It is served each morning in our ocean view dining area. Some of our breakfast options include granola and yogurt with fresh fruits, eggs with gallo pinto, or pancakes, all served with fresh Costa Rican coffee. Our guests are our priority. It comes natural for us to host people and make new friends, so it is our pleasure to cover every small detail and accommodate our guests' needs so that they have the best time while staying with us. Many of our guests have told us that their experience visiting Gumbo Limbo felt more like staying with old friends, than staying at a hotel. Whether it's sharing a surf session or an Argentinean asado together, we look forward to having you!! ... more   less
