We stayed in late February 2013. We booked last minute into a place on the beach for six nights and the owner said she could accommodate us if we wouldn't mind spending the first night at her friends place (Vicky’s) up the hill, as she was fully booked - We agreed to this proposal and after one night at Casa De La Luna, decided to stay on for the full six nights.
The comments here are all ‘Excellent’ so no need to add to them, other to say I strongly agree. Both Santa Teresa and Casa De La Luna were the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica and well worth the efforts to get here. Most people seek the combination of luxury and warm hospitality, Casa Del La Luna offers both. Vicky runs the show herself in a friendly and simple manner. The house is great, open, light and peaceful. There are about 5 or 6 rooms, so it will never get to busy.
There are one or two comments on TA about the hill. Yes it is steep and yes not everyone would want to walk up it in the blistering heat. We walked it and ran up it for a bit of exercise and to earn the evening beer. We hired a quad from Vicky at a reasonable rate, this also gave us the opportunity to explore the coast line. I even enjoyed driving the hill with a couple of crazy Americans, before he ditched and rolled the car on the main high street…. Lesson here, don’t let Americans near a Suzuki Jimmy with a stick-shift…. Just know that the hill exists (so it is not a surprise), but also know that it provides the spectacular views that you enjoy from the pool, balcony or open plan dining area.
The strongest recommendation I can give its to suggest that Casa Del La Luna along with the beaches of Santa Teresa has the potential to ‘make’ your holiday in Costa Rica…. Just give yourself flexibility to stay longer, because I promise you won’t want to leave.
